Debut Of The New Green Muppet

After watching the maiden parliamentary speech of Random Trollop Metiria Turei,a Libertarianz spokesman said he didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Such mumbo jumbo makes me wonder if the country has been taken over by the Muppets," said Tim Wikiriwhi, Libertarianz spokesman to deregulate Maori affairs.

In a more serious tone, Wikiriwhi said that "by peddling such radical separatist crap as Turei's, he expects the Greens to soon be holding the apartheid seats - unless that is Helen Clark and Margaret Wilson bribe the tribalists with even more stolen taxes."

Turei's position is a contradiction in terms, says Wikiriwhi, noting her claim to be an 'anarchist legislator.' "How does this work?" asks Wikiriwhi. "How can she pretend to be 'anti-State' when most of her working life as a resource-management lawyer has seen her sucking off the state tit; when all her political goals require an expansion of State powers - not a reduction."

Clarifying, he said that to 'lift minimum wages', to 'resource hapu', to 'protect 'our' kiatiakitanga', etc all requires vast state machinery to implement and enforce. The only policy she listed that will reduce the power of the state is her support of cannabis law reform, apart from that, everything else she and her new party advocates gives power to Leviathan.

In conclusion, Wikiriwhi said "if a fruit-loop Maori radical like Turei can get her bum on a parliamentary seat, then surely that is all the proof we need that Maori don't need the Apartheid seats in parliament to get representation. They must be immediately abolished," he concluded.

Gordon Campbell: On Why An Attack On Iran Is Back On The Agenda


Reportedly, Christopher Luxon has the edge on Simon Bridges in National’s leadership contest although there is no firm evidence for that hunch. So, one hesitates about joining a media echo chamber that amplifies Luxon’s chances ahead of the 3pm caucus meeting today. You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet. Or even perhaps: Luxon hasn't got the numbers, and his people start talking to the media to talk up his support so that he gets a nicer consolation prize... More>>
