  • Hard News: Dirty Politics, in reply to nzlemming,

    And what about the US,

    Didn't your English teacher tell you not to start a sentence with "And"?
    ;-)
    Anyhoo, I was referring to our Westminster traditions, where red is Left and Blue is right. As far as the US is concerned I don't think those colours are set in stone, at least, in the past they weren't.

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    It occurred to me last night that the right wing is like the Old testament as the Left is to the New, an eye for an eye as opposed to turning the other cheek and caring for those that suffer the indignities of life…
    The Blue of the right is representative of the blue blood of the Royals and those that believe that they deserve the right to rule, the Red of the Left as in the Tooth and Claw of nature where the fight is to survive rather than to acquire, the fight to live rather than rule.
    Which side are you on?…. which side are you on?.

    It’s a fine line on who’s being dirty sometimes.

    And then the gang mentality kicks in with a viciousness that makes this place as scary as Kiwiblog on a bad day.
    For Pete's sake, a little humanity goes a long way.

    I now know why John Key smiles a lot. He smiles when he is lying.

    Wayne Mapp on Pundit...

    But over the last week any substantive policy issues were virtually drowned out. How many people know about the Greens' child and welfare policies, or National's cycling announcement? And without actually looking it up, I could not think of what Labour has promised in the past week. On checking, it was free doctors’ visits for those over 65.

    I can get over the obvious smear "could not think of what Labour has promised" and I suppose the mere fact that National has promised to spend $100 million on the cycle-way over the next 4 years or $50 million over 3 years depending on what JK thinks on that day, will please some but major policy it is not.
    With respect to those that like to cycle, personally I don't but that is just me not wanting to be hit by some self righteous right winger in a car that thinks I don;t deserve to be there because I might not be a Road Fund Licence payer or, even more ridiculous, a rate payer but I digress... I wonder if, in the back of his tiny mind, JK imagines us all on bikes in the style of early 20th century China and him as the Chaimam, Chairmonkey has a nice ring to it eh?. but I continue to digress.
    The argument that Hager's book has distracted the voting public from Policy is disingenuous at best and more likely to be yet another attempt to tell us that... "There is nothing to see here, now move along you plebs and get a job, I am sure a toilet needs cleaning somewhere, after all, at the end of the day that is what is important and I think everyone can see that this is all just a left wing smear orchestrated by a conspiracy theorist to make lots of money out of a book that has no truth in it whatsoever and I have never heard of whales, or Wales for that matter, unless you are a Prince of it and you have a baby to kiss unless its feral in which case I can't tell you about that but what I can tell you is that David Cunliffe has a scarf and that says a lot cos its red and that proves he is in with the Greens. Its all .com's fault........"
    As they do, but I digressed...

    Tucker’s toast on this.

    Reminds me, lunchtime…
    A fellow going by the moniker Esquire posed this question int’ ’erald…

    "The average elector is asking two questions –
    1. Will this pay by electricity bill and buy my groceries?
    2. Do I want a change of government?
    The answer to both is NO, and so this investigation will have no effect on anything."

    To which I had to reply…



    Actually you are wrong, again.
    The fact that Electricity prices have soared is directly to do with National. First, by introducing competition, drastically increasing the overheads of sales and generation by compounding administration costs. Second by privatising suppliers, meaning that their main goal is to increase profit for their shareholders. As for groceries, increasing GST to 15% without exempting basic foods was a kick in the ’nads for all those on minimum wage.
    So, change of Govt.? I think most will want this , especially now the Emperor has been not only seen to be naked but also lacking in manhood.
