ExportNZ provides a great example of the one-sidedness our business cheerleaders have exhibited:
All this is very good news for the New Zealand economy because Maori do not tend to sell their assets – they re-invest for future generations. This will mean in the future they are our globally competitive New Zealand based multi-nationals (investing here and overseas) that in a small economy a long way from our markets we struggle to build otherwise. When they get to the size where there are investing overseas (and some already are) they too will benefit from Investor State Dispute protection in the TPP, which means a foreign government must treat them fairly and not discriminate against them or appropriate their assets.
Larger entities are able to execute better in overseas markets (they will have deeper pockets) they can attract and retain better qualified staff, they can pay higher salaries and they can generate more economic activity for local suppliers. But in order for this to happen, all our exporters including Maori owned exporters, need to have a level playing field to compete.
Unfortunately, exactly the same argument applies to every large foreign company bidding for NZ contracts - including all government and council ones. Good luck growing a company here now.
a bunch of people saw those tweets and they know what you said and they have seen you do this before.
if only I were paranoid enough to screenshoot my tweets from months ago I could show you something different. But hey, whatever makes you happy.
I mean that specific one alone? Hundreds of tweets https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=twat%20from%3Akaupapa&src=typd&lang=en
Please do note the gender of the target in every case.
I think it's bloody confusing when some of us don't do twitter and then come back to PAS to find people having a go at each other.
I wasn't even looking at Twitter - imagine the confusion.
I do not know who you are but please desist from slagging me on the basis of whatever you have been fed. Not on.
And now you're doing it again - reframing an issue and pushing attacks on her and claiming she incited you
after you'd harassed her all day
Because she incited you?
when she was talking about men intimidating and attacking women who have asked them numerous times to LEAVE THEM ALONE on Twitter.
No. I did no such thing.
