What goes round...

A Mr Mangrove has been fired forthwith today.

If you wrestle with pigs, two things are guaranteed. You will get dirty and the pig will enjoy it.

Another bit of karma from the long running criminally-sourced Dirty Politics of New Zealand's beltway.

And I'm sure today, the pig is really happy.

The pile-on continues

The left are obviously worried about the Nats newest player in the NZ political puddle.


n (sometimes capital)
1. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) any ideology or movement inspired by Italian Fascism, such as German National Socialism; any right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism
2. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) any ideology, movement, programme, tendency, etc, that may be characterized as right-wing, chauvinist, authoritarian, etc
3. prejudice in relation to the subject specified: body fascism.
[C20: from Italian fascismo, from fascio political group, from Latin fascis bundle; see fasces]

the Right’s rapidly unravelling bundle of conservative sticks

Go on Mr Trotter, you've got the matching picture but fail to say what you really mean.

What a difference!

Just watched our PM in waiting give a live presser at Parliament this wet and dreary afternoon.

I could never watch the PTPM for 20 seconds let alone 20 minutes without the bile rising.

Plenty of sledges eg "the need to put the Min of Education in as a caretaker Min of Health vs we'll have a real doctor as Min of Health".  Also nice of her to put the muckraker Tova in her place on day one.

Judith was all smiles and on top of the subjects under discussion.  No getting bogged down with sidetracking supplementary questions by so-called journalists desperate to trap her - she just moved on to the next question.

Crap sound on $1tuffed - very muted and hard to hear questions being asked.

Lazarus arises

is a good man, unlike most of his colleagues

never had a chance given the fault lines of ambition, personality, and ideology that run deep through the National Party caucus

Obviously refreshed from his medical time off, Lazarus is in fine fettle unable to resist a sledge or two.

The leadership masterclass continues...

367 people letting down team of 5 million

Throwing the shade on anyone but themselves.  A true leader takes responsibility at his desk.

Here in New Zealand, the leadership master class continues.  Not!

The minister in charge had his chance to test the 367 and like every other initiative of this government, failed miserably.

But this same Coalition of Losers government remains ever ready to throw the blame onto others and you under the bus.
