This really annoys me. The Dunedin South MP appeared at Parliamentary questions this afternoon wearing the team’s old blue, gold and maroon kit in protest at the new lime green colour. Highlanders management controversially announced last week the team would wear a green stripe from next season. Speaker Lockwood Smith declared the shirt violated Parliament’s… Continue reading Oh, was that really a red light officer?
I must say I’m absolutely gutted at the infighting that has broken out in the Labour party. When I looked at the list I was horrified at just how many of those evil “white males” managed to make it onto the list. I say that the party should undergo a massive purge of all those… Continue reading Too few Gays in the Labour Party List
There’s been a lot of talk lately that Labour is looking to replace Goff. Let’s face it, Goff has done so well that everyone’s talking about Labour and their chances. So the party would be fools to replace him. But less well-known is the fact that they’re looking to tap Charlie Sheen for deputy leader.… Continue reading Labour to stick with Goff & Recruiting Charlie Sheen
Acording to a blog we all know well, this is attacking those who saved Christchuch. How evil of National do… wait, isn’t Cosgrove in the Labour party? Labour’s earthquake recovery spokesman Clayton Cosgrove says he fears hundreds of Wellington bureaucrats with clipboards telling Cantabrians how to rebuild Christchurch. The government will next week outline a… Continue reading Attacking those saving Christchurch
I’m not 100% sure why, but I really don’t care about the Darren Hughes affair. I suspect it’s a mix of the following: He’s in opposition. As I said before the election, it’s the government we need to hold to account. I’m much more interested in the fact that this government is doing a bad job, even if… Continue reading Yawn
Since it’s come into the news again via the leaked cable on the Labour party fundraiser, I thought I’d have a read through the essay “Fifty Six Deceits in Fahrenheit 911“. I have to confess, there are several that I didn’t know (at least, not fully). Bush Vacations Deceits 6-7 Fahrenheit 9/11 states, “In his… Continue reading Fifty Six Deceits in Fahrenheit 911
Labour rammed through several controversial changes to our constitutional arrangements in government against strenuous opposition from National, but now they’re not happy when the boot is on the other foot. Labour expects the Government to consult with it over a constitutional review to consider such issues as Maori representation, leader Phil Goff says. The review… Continue reading Oh, *now* they want consultation
Labour think this should be our new flag. Guess we’ll have to get rid of the old one then. Remember this one Trevor? Personally, I’m a lot more comfortable removing an Orwellian law than using the power of parliament to shutdown a private lawsuit.
So Phil wants to ban poreigners from purchasing our pharm land. Phair enough. But one thing concerns me – does this policy really go phar enough? Let’s start with South Aucklanders. Lots of crime there. Do we really want them owning our precious pharm land? No. While we’re at it, why should anyone from Auckland… Continue reading Who do you trust?
Chris Carter recons he’s not had a fair go. Chris Carter says his travel expenses were focused on because of his sexuality….”To have Phil Goff say it’s not homophobic – of course it’s homophobic. Why was I different to everybody else? Because I was the top spending MP? I wasn’t actually. Because I was the… Continue reading Chris Carter a victim of Homophobia… well, either that or his own pigheaded stupidity
