The union factions and machinations that placed him as leader have reaped a political whirlwind of fire. None of their people made it via the backdoor list vote. Anything that reduces the union effect makes me happy. I await the NZEI and PPTA statements post election re the sky is falling.
At 24% the ABC faction won on the day, having successfully kneecapped their beloved party.
And wasn't it delicious to see the German's paid lapdog trying to get her party's message across when interviewed. Not willing to speak ill of her employer, but wishing to fan the flames for a phoenix like result in three years time, she was real keen to change the on camera message. At least her employer was gracious in defeat.
Speaking of being gracious, the other player in the iMP fiasco reacted otherwise when confronted with the finality of his total loss. No doubt his ilk (and the likes of the Popata bros) will unleash in your face hikois from hell on the country for the next three years. I'm sure that will further endear his team of modern day terrorist activists and henchmen to future voters.
At least we've still got GST on our fruit and vege, keeping a level tax base that works without exemption favours. No reversals of employment laws, no envy taxes and best of all, no Cold Granny Tax.
And the tree-hugging swivel-eyed feral loons that make up the watermelons have been kept on their leash out of government yet again. One day they'll note that New Zealand Inc does not want or need more socialism, envy taxes or blatant communism. If only they'd stuck to their knitting.
The sun is trying to rise round these parts, well done the ABC team that has made these next three years a pleasure to look forward to.
Now for the nice Mr Key to deal to the RMA and employment laws. Quickly followed by cutting welfare to the bone.
