In no uncertain terms shall today go down as anything other than the death of democracy in New Zealand. Personally this is one of the most depressing days ever.
Let me make this clear and loud (because there are some really fucking dumb people out there justifying these actions).
Removing the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED people’s representatives, replacing them with one’s own cronies, with no set date for the return to elections, makes this Government’s actions no different from that of the Fiji Coup leaders.
Commodore Rodney Hydemarama and Nick Smith have fucked the people of Canterbury, they have treated democracy with complete and utter contempt, and thus have fucked the people of NZ.
All the bleating and tears from the right during the previous Labour government pale into minuscule insignificance compared to these actions.
But these aren’t the only people’s representatives they’ve fucked. The Polytechnic’s have had this same treatment.
So there you go NZ, the govt you deserve (you have obviously all been very naughty people to deserve this shit).
No Maori direct representation – OMGFG. But I guess that’s what happens when the Hall Monitor ACT (Association of Cunts and Tyrants) Local Govt Minister gets involved. The largest Polynesian City in the world will have a white middle aged male council – mark my words.
Could I possibly ask WTF is the point of a Royal Commission, thousands of submissions and the Govt makes it’s own daft policy on this?
Good luck Auckland you are going to fucking well need it.
Memo to Auckland, don’t take us down with you please, we are actually all right down here.
North Shore Mayor Williams is not the one who has imposed a 6c a litre petrol tax on the rest of us to pay for Auckland’s internationally embarrassing transport system.
As Mr Williams said on The Panel (against the astoundingly ill informed Michelle Boad – now there’s a surprise), that 4 years ago Auckland was given the mandate to come up with a solution to the embarrassment that is Auckland’s transport system. After cross party and cross council talks and negotiations, translated 4 years of hard work, Auckland did come up with a solution, only for the National Party ideologues to come in and scrap the plan.
A couple of things straight off the bat.
I thought National was the party that wanted less government in people’s lives – well except this case where they know better.
I thought National was the party that was going to lower taxes – well except for this case.
Auckland found it’s solution to it’s problems and the new government has come in with a juvenile stiffy and big balls and told Auckland that they know better – piss off.
Jesus good luck Auckland sorting this mess out, cap in hand to Central Government, least of all trying to deal with the increasingly insane John Banks. FFS what a complete cock-up. I’m now gonna pay for another fucking road in Auckland – what genius came up with that plan.
And TV3, he wasn’t the one that imposed the tax on the rest of us, so please don’t take the piss with such poor journalism.
So not only did he turn up to a Select committee meeting and essentially gag the Chief Executive of a Government Department, he has been found to have lied to Parliament and hence the people, well allegedly.

What a complete pillack, so typical of the big balls “I can do anything’ attitude pervading this current government.
This along with Brownlee failing to know the correct procedures in Parliament, one does wonder what the fuck these wankers were doing for those 9 years in opposition – for it certainly wasn’t taking notes and learning anything.
“Mr Key said the Government was taking the boyracer problem seriously and agreed with Ms Collins’ call for cars of offenders to be crushed.”
Awesome, will they do that with tanks? Easy isn’t it. Don’t like someone, send in the crushers.
