National MP sees no reason to apologise for controversial claim – MSN

A National MP is doubling down on comments he made in a controversial Facebook post claiming Jacinda Ardern is encouraging the old, sick and disabled to commit suicide.

Tamaki MP, Simon O’Connor, says the Labour leader’s support for euthanasia legislation proves his point  and he sees no reason to apologise.

Ms Ardern’s emotional response to seeing hundreds of shoes lined up outside parliament on Sunday as part of a suicide awareness campaign prompted Mr O’Connor to put the boot in.
