Are they listening ?

I just heard on the TV news, that this right-wing (NZ) govt. are hearing what people are saying about drink-driving (alcohol).. they have today announced they will be dropping the limit to 0.5 (inline with many other countries) BUT they stated that 0.5 to 0.8 (current limit) will NOT be a criminal conviction, but a fine only.
Interestingly the minister responsible, says that he doesn’t agree with criminalising people.. who currently are NOT breaking the law. SO why bother.. a slap on the hand, will not stop them doing it !
I ask the minister.. ‘they maybe hearing us, BUT are they really listening to the majority OR just those who voted them into power (top 50.1%) ??’
Still no such stance/change, on Cannabis possession !
