National I can’t wait for you…


How easy it is to be in opposition?

The thing is how many times have I heard from the opposition party, National, how easy it is to run the economy, society, climate change, the environment etc.

Every time there is something for National to moan about, an apparent ill of society here (child abuse & youth crime), a failure in the economy (high interest rates and tax) or the environment (emissions trading schemes and climate change), the stock standard line from the National Party is “all you have to do…”

“All you have to do”, according to the opposition spokesperson on Justice, is to “stamp out crime”.
“All you have to do”, according to the outgoing member for Tauranga is “just fix the problem, give me five minutes” (so why if National is about to get into power, are you leaving – you arrogant wanker, why not just “fix” the problem with housing, you are about to get that chance – what you can’t, it’s just hot air, you’re lying, can’t be?)
“All you have to do”, according to every other person from National “is just”…

How absolutely easy is it to be in opposition. How infinitely unaccountable are you for your words and comments. Because, call me a skeptic, call me synical, call me just a little too bitter and twisted, but you can bet your bottom bloody dollar, that come November, if National becomes the next government of NZ, they will not “just fix”, the economy, crime, the environment blah blah blah.

You can’t just fix. It’s nigh on impossible. To suggest so is to take the public for fools. To suggest so is to put your unflinching arrogance beyond all reasoned possibility. National will not stop child abuse in NZ. National will not clean up the environment. National will not “stomp out crime” according to you Mr Power. Your hot air is vile and disgusting, indeed demeaning to your position.

I could be wrong, this could be the government that shows the rest of the world, how to lower taxes, clean up the environment, stomp out crime, lower petrol prices – basically according to the hot air and vile bullshit that has emanated from the putrid and disgusting orifices of these arrogant and pig ignorant bastards, we will achieve a state of Nirvana under National, because they have the answer for everything.

Bring it on. You complete and utter tossers. You have taken the people for fools, you have delivered no policy and they still love you, why because you have offered them the green fields and blue skies of paradise, with no intention what so every (not to mention ability) to deliver what you say.

It is all too bloody easy being in opposition.

Crime’s out of control…

This from the Herald

The New Zealand crime rate remained flat in 2007, while police resolved almost 10,000 more offences than the previous year.

Police crime statistics released today showed a small increase in total recorded offences with 426,380 – 0.5 per cent more than 2006.


Again that’s just not fair, I thought according to Simon Power and all those over at Kiwiblog, that this country is spiraling out of control in a depraved crime wave.
