as he doubles down on tough-on-crime tactics
Party leader Christopher Luxon made the comments while addressing how to deal with the country's ram-raid problem.
Earlier this week, he reintroduced National's military boot camp policy for misbehaving youths, switching the focus away from wraparound services.
"We can't just have kumbaya and a lot of mush and no action and no improved outcomes. We have to have consequences alongside it," Luxon said on Sunday.
The Dairy and Business Association is on board with the idea.
"I see the value," said chairperson Sunny Kaushal. "The offenders must know that they'll be caught and there'll be consequences."
