Mr Smith you naughty bugger

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.

Full story here on Stuff

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.

Now they want to break the law

This is a personal blog, with bugger all ambitions of ever achieving Pulitzer Prizes or being adapted into a Hollywood blockbuster, so excuse me if the language from time to time is somewhat colloquial.

I’m talking about those two faced bastards over at the Sensible Sentencing Trust. They’re really starting to get on my tit. Their retributive styled ideologies somehow give them the idea that they are right and the rest of society is wrong.

Why do I say all of this? Because they have a law they don’t agree with (the Election Finance Act, which limits political spending from interest groups), and because they don’t agree with it, they are going to break it. They claim flaunt it, but it’s exactly the same thing as breaking the law.

They claim “the act which limits advertising spending by non-political parties soliciting votes for or against a party unless they register as a third party is anti-democratic and stifling public debate.” This is one view, others believe that we have so many interest groups in NZ politics, that a level of transparency about who is saying what and how much it cost them is a small price to pay for putting your name at the bottom of a political message. I don’t think the EFA is stifling public debate.

This all came about after the last election after it was discovered that the wacko right wing religious idiots the Exclusive Bretheran put a $1m campaign in place to discredit Green politics and policies. Jesus would have been mighty pissed off.

So a pressure group with the express interest in making this country safer and more law abiding is going to break the law to suit their own needs, because they see fit to do so.

How does this make them any different from organised crime, petty criminals, sexual offenders, corporate criminals and violent criminals. They are all breaking the law to suit their own needs and wants, just as the SST is proposing.

I am all for political action and protest, but a law abiding pressure group telling people it’s ok to break the law is just a little too much to stomach.

Matthew Hooton is an idiot (version 6783.2)

According to the esteemed political commentator of the right in the Sunday Star Times over the weekend, New Zealand will soon no longer be a first world nation.

His reasoning, is that policy in NZ hasn’t reformed the country at the moment, there’s some dig in there about the amount of Kiwi’s living over seas, something about only 1 big international company, some other rubbish about lack of innovation blah blah blah.

Matthew Hooton is one of those classic political hacks known as an incompetent bastard (at least this is a personal blog, I don’t need or even be informed of the facts).

What a tosser, from his “Helen Clark is one of the worst polluters” insults through to this, this guy could talk the country into a recession, and seems quite happy that we are showing signs of such.

What a joke. Yes if the sky falls mate we might just drift out of first world status, but we’d need some serious first world air pollution to get that to happen.
