Former Alliance Minister Bunkle arrested for shop lifting

November 15th, 2007 at 8:53 am by David Farrar

Phillida Bunkle, who served in Helen Clark’s Cabinet from 1999 to 2001, as Minister of Consumer Affairs has been arrested after allegedly trying to steal food to consume. The alleged goods shoplifted are a bottle of Stone’s green ginger wine worth $15.20 and two blocks of Fagg’s coffee each worth $7.19 in her bag.

Well the Government did always believe in redistribution of wealth, but that’s taking it to a new level!

    Typical thieving socialist – but she should quickly join the Labour party (if she is not already a member) in order to claim immunity from prosecution.

    Give him a break David, he’s just practising what he truely believes in, socialism. It’s just that now he is no longer a minister it’s illegal. If he was still minister of consumer affairs this would be called ‘government policy’.

    Andrew – I took Nick’s post to be a slight against her slightly homely appearance.

    I wouldn’t say she looks like a man, but perhaps a female Paul Holmes in the photo at the link above.

    Also, it’s not a dog whistle unless it’s a hidden subtext aimed at only a subset of readers. In this case, I don’t think there’s any hidden subtext. The post is clearly intended to mean the same thing to all readers.

    Left people lack morality. Moral relativity is a staple of socialism. It has to be, or those who advocate for it or practice it would be racked with guilt. That aside, your smug pretentious comment was an attempt to intimidate the owner of this site into highlighting issues that might damage the image of socialism. You do it. All the slime on KBB and the Standard also do it. Keep it up Mr. Farrar. Take no notice of these arrogant swine and their attempts to control thought and speech.

    Lee C – I would’ve leaned towards that explanation too. I’d doubt she’d have any need or desire to be a thief. Still, the article makes it seem that she paid for some items and was leaving the store with the wine etc. Seems unlikely she’d forget a heavy item like a bottle of wine. Tough one.

    lee C- they don’t ping you for shoplifting until you try and leave the store with the goods. In a supermarket you could stuff all sorts of goodies into your pockets and down your shirt and they can’t do a thing about it until you actually try and leave the shop without paying. Until then, even if you look suspicious, they can’t charge you with anything.

    I’ll tell you once, and I’ll gladly tell you as much as you want to hear,,

    Blondes with glasses are totally dysfuntional and hysterical.

    Anne Hercus has been recently described as such in the media.

    I will say they are usually boring people who stick to sneering down their noses at the marginalised, but they are known to break with convention;
    hence the hysterics in what ever form.

    You may have noticed the banks are filled with blondes with glasses.
    They are complete drones to the system and having no creativity or originality make excellent sheep. Very clinical and colourless in personality.

    Unfortunately, when they do go awol from reality its in a big way, no half way measures. Thet go from one extreme to the other, basically I suspect because they don’t know how to think for themselves. Very system driven.

    Anyway, instead of going on at length about these suspect individuals who cast suspicion on all others, I will ask one question to this blog and if anyone can answer I will never speak of these strange begoggled females again on this blog.

    Name two blondes with glasses who contributed to history.

    Obviously, Anee Hercus does not count.

    It’s clear the woman isn’t short of a dollar (presently in England, house on the market for half a mil) so it seems inconceivable that it’d be calculating thievery at work – the risks vastly outweigh the rewards, specially for a public figure – no matter how much it neatly fits the “thieving socialist” paradigm.

    Having encountered the woman a few times and come away with the impression that there weren’t quite the requisite number of sheep in the top paddock even a decade or more ago, it may well be that kehua / Lee C have it right – perhaps borderline dementia at work.

    If so it’s somewhat tragic, as it would be if this were anyone of any political persuasion. Perhaps withholding judgement till the facts are presented might be the humane thing to do.

    Pammies nearly middle aged, think she’ll go for lenses.

    but the women I’m talking about really have no sex appeal.

    But somehow they always get well offf husbands. I suspect they hook middle aged insecure business men and move in to fill the void.
    being blonde makes them socially acceptable of course.

I think hinamanu’s argument is that playing tennis doesn’t make history, Billie Jean was quite important in women’s rights in sport.

    I thought Gerry had a good question. Many blondes with glasses of beer may have changed history. Do sunglasses count? Do reading glasses count? The thing that is hard is that many women take their glasses off for photos, so it is hard to tell whether they wear glasses or not by just looking at photos. And for some reason Wikipedia doesn’t seem to think it is important to tell us whether or not individuals wore glasses. :-(

The only people who would are those who don’t care about their appearance, and most of them wouldn’t bother to dye their hair blonde.

    Shocking
    This is what the left at Kiwiblogblog has to say

    It’s precisely this thin veneer of really nasty bigotry that seemingly bubbles away under the surface of Right wing politics that keeps many centrists oriented to the Left.

    And I hate to say it but they are right The nastiest bigoted comments do in fact come from the right in the blogoshere. We are in danger of loosing our credibility. Visit public address they have less visitors and posts but the debate is really civilized and they are on the left.
    One day some enterprising Journo is going to do a story about poltics in the blogoshere,

    well I think the problem is just as I put it – blondes are of such a physical type that they dont need glasses and as such they dont exist.

    and anyway blondes most definitely have an influence over history by way of their magical mystery powers over men whether they have glasses or not. so the question is not their ability to be meaningful but whether they actually need glasses.

    but I guess my argument here fails if it is put up against the standard PC basis – i.e. we all the same so there should be an even spread of glasses across all hair colours. silly silly pc

    Blondes with glasses prefer glasses. Go figure.

    They used to wear real large lenses to make their eyes look big and angry.
    like Deirdre on coro st.

    then they turned to narrow lenses to look squinty and mean.

    I suggest you keep crap like that off Kiwiblog. If people want to know what that bunch of sick hate driven psychos have to say, they’ll go there. I don’t know how you can give any credibility to such blatant hypocrisy.

    The whole purpose of the site is to attack Kiwiblog and Mr. Farrar personally, and their standard of behaviour is far worse. They’re control freaks. They burn with the obsession to control what other NZers think and say. They want to impose their stinking one party socialist system upon free men.

    They’re embittered political troglodytes, Marxist throwbacks who still think the fight is between the worker and capitalism. They don’t know that they themselves, with their totalitarian objectives and their poisonous attacks on democracy and free thought and speech have become much more of a threat to liberty and civilisation than capitalism has ever been or ever will be.

    BTW, I went there, and here’s a few examples of the stuff that Santa Claws thinks gives them the high moral ground. Where’d you learn how to reason Santa? From some left wing “educator”?

    You really don’t make any sense.

    If you are taking the literal use of my wording, you are barking up the wrong tree. However you seem to miss the tenor of the well used and loved (shall we say cliche) “Tell us what you think”.

    Oh bugger there I go again using the first-person, plural personal pronoun. Shame shame, that so belittles my political argument as to render me useless, or not. I thought we came here for political argument, but if we are just playing blogosphere linguistic scrabble, then I guess the fine art of political debate is gone forever.

    Don’t take this wrong, as I really don’t want to pursue a character attack, but do you get out often? I mean if you were to have a political chin wag in a bar with some people and then start picking apart their grammatical imperfections, I could see punches thrown. I mean this in the nicest possible way.

    Or shall we look at this in a different light? Does one get a sense of superiority by picking grammatical incongruities? Is this a power thing? It’s not too far off the classical hall monitor, or dear we say it, playground bully.

    I’m sorry of my banding about of the 1st person personal pronoun, I’ll try to abstain from the aforementioned grammatical willy-nillyness and minimise the use of the seemingly banal yet obviously offensive cliche.

    But then we’d hate to see two birds in the bush used where one would suffice, wouldn’t we.

I could in fact by applying the orthographically correct 1st person plural pronoun to me, the we as in I, that is, those of us that are represented in the singular which yet seem to manifest itself in the we, yet all along only being able to express thyself through the somewhat spectacularly fast yet dyslexically challenged fingers of the physical presence that is me.

    Having fun are we? You see when Jack Nicholson used the term in a movie, I really doubted there was someone in the audience so jacked off at the aforementioned first-person plural personal pronoun, that they stormed out of the building in disgust. Still there’s a chance that it may still happen. I suggest you don’t go to any Jack Nicholson suspense movies, it may offend.

    Excellent, we’re getting somewhere here folks. Engaging in a little druggist’s/heinz dilemma. It’s nice to see Kholberg in all of his glory and weakness showning his face here.

    Well you see, if we were to apply the “good old day” axiom that the esteemed Garth George (of the literary Georges you know) so fondly adheres to, of course one shouldn’t steal, it’s just wrong.

    However if one was to assume that there might be an alternative answer (it can happen even within religious dogma), then there are several possibilities to pursue.

    a) One should steal the … because everyone has a right to choose life, regardless of the law, or even
    b) One should steal the …, because saving a human life is a more fundamental value than the property rights of another person

    But Kohlberg wasn’t without criticism. Still it’s applying a model of development to a dilemma posed by the Redbaiter.

    The world is just so bland if we are all to assume the black and whites (right and wrongs) of the good old days were a utopian goal. We progressed from the old black and white TV for a bloody good reason.

    I now make this official.

    It is impossible to find any blonde with glasses who conributed meaningfully to society. The question was raised almost 24 hrs ago and has come up utterly lacking. I suggest that those of you on either side of the political spectrum who are middle aged single business men consider how many blondes with glasses seem to be very open and friendly towards you. And dismiss them immediately.

    Be warned, their charm is deep and engaging and it is easy to forget they are nothing but ice blocks with glasses. Stone cold.

    I would say more, but decorum dictates god form.

    No, I have not been stung by any blondes with glasses.

    I saw a bumper sticker once that said ‘boring women have good lives’ and from there I realised blondes with glasses are exactly that description.

    I find it intriguing on such an intelligent blog I have not been contradicted.

    Or in fact maligned. Oh yeah, 4got about Cacofinix.
