Herald mentions the Select Committee submissions.
Without Select Committee it will be a shit piece of rushed through poorly drafted legislation. With Select Commitee it could be legislation that may help us have a better than shit inevitable legislation because it will go through no matter what. Labour do it this way,they always have but it never stops me from telling Goff what I think and this week is a good one to make your point expressing how untrustworthy National are and how dangerous this could be to our democracy and Goff of all people is in the perfect position to bombard him reminding him of how it turns to custard if National get their way. If people don’t communicate with our Mps, how on earth will they know our feelings. One can’t rely on them reading blogs to hear your views. They are all easy to write to . National are pointless puppets, Green are converted, it’s up to people to complain to the ones that can get change to the legislation if nothing else, Dunne Maori and Labour possibly NZF. Seymour is just a seat filler. Labour/ Greens on their own cannot stop this.
Labour voted at the first reading to force it to go to select Committee stage so that it can be scrutinised . Write to your Mp or anyone you want to complain. Express yourself somewhere that might make a difference. Or, don't. It is obvious that it's pointless trying any National puppet though
I think that if that’s not very probably bullshit, then it’s very actually bullshit.
He may not have been wearing his Mr PM hat. Yesterday Winston was calling him out and calling it bovine faeces
“Have you taken out the rubbish, dear?”“Yes of course I have, honey.”
Nah more like
Have you taken out the rubbish dear?
Don't be silly ,that's what the Diplomatic protection service are for.
Cameron Slater: Yup…I’m very angry over it…Goff is the one who leaked oravida stuff too.
A, Labour have the right to talk to media . Oravida is a personal issue with Collins taking advantage of her standing to influence an outcome. I'd be telling the media myself. and B, you'd be only angry if you support Collins whose hiding something. Does anyone get the impression that Collins is out to tarnish Key too. Paybacks are a bitch and hell hath no fury like a cold bucket of sick in ya face.
The Herald reports Key discussed the Chisholm report. with Slater, Collins,discussed the Chisholm Report with Slater but Key bags Goff
Typical he only admits it after he was sprung.
Q: What do the geezers in the Office of the Prime Mister do when they aren’t doing this sort of shit?
A: Probably not much else.
Q: What does the PM do when he isn't doing his sort of shit?
A: Probably not much else, that he could remember.
I’m sure that Mr Hooton is made of sterner stuff.
Which is why I wanted his opinion. I think a response from him would be of value. It quite obvious what many of us think. Maybe he'd not appreciate me singling him out but he tends to respond in good faith albeit against my views .
Matthew, do you see a pattern yet in how this Government operates and especially how John Key and anyone on the front bench in National have cushioned themselves from ever having to take responsibility for their responsibilities? Do you see the behaviour as unethical? Do you ever think this modus operandi will change? Do you think it's acceptable? Just curious as to what supporters of Key co actually think of all this and the many other events that were in Nicky Hager's book (which I did read.) and did you read the book? I'd genuinely like to know.
