    I watched with amazement an interview on Breakfast TV this morning between Key and Paul Henry, Henry asked Key directly if he was going to spend any money (tax payer money) lobbying for the appointment of Klark to the UN.

    Key’s answer was “if we need to spend it we will”, Henry pushed for an amount and eventually Key admitted he would spend “a few hundred thousand” of MY FUCKING TAX DOLLARS getting this corrupt idiot a job at the UN.

    Klark has stolen enough money from me over the last 15 years, she has no right to expect me and all the other tax payers in NZ to spend our money getting her a bloody job.

    Big bruv – Agree or disagree with her politics, but Clark is hardly a “corrupt idiot”. Besides, Clark as Director of UNDP is good for NZ and Key knows this. If (and if) she wins the position, she will make a great advocate for NZ. Think big picture – it’ll do wonders for NZ diplomacy power.

    Back to DPF’s post: Moore’s support makes for interesting speculation. Since being rolled in 1993, Moore has never been a fan of Clarks and I don’t think he said a single nice thing about her. Why now?

    I feel the former PM’s talents would be better used in filling ‘hard to fill’ official UN posts in Iraq or Afghanistan, Sudan, Northern Burma or the combat zone in Sri Lanka.
    I also think she will need her ‘team’ with her: Cullen and Mike Williams as two examples. I would be more than happy to see my tax dollars used to assist these three in getting any of these vital UN posts and then being sent there ASAP.
    I’ll even carry their bags onto the plane and wave them off ;)

    Why are we discussing rewarding somebody who helmed this country into 10 years of deficits and nothing in the kitty for us to fall back on? Coupled with the fact that she oversaw the filling of the civil service with fellow travelers and is single handedly responsible for the parlous state of birthing in this country..
    Those that claim it will be good for NZ are idiots or stupid. This UN role will do nothing for us, much like everything about the UN it is just another body for anti American rhetoric and trough feeding on a global scale.

    I think the UN and Klark deserve each other.

    The big benefit to having her in that position is it means she is completely out of NZ politics. It’s been wonderful since the election not having to listen to her opinion on anything anymore, and Im certain the only reason she’s kept so quiet is because she has been counting on the governments support for her bid for the UN job.

    She won’t do anything to raise NZ’s profile in any meaningful way that would actually be of benefit to our country.

    The debate about whether Clark should be appointed to an international body is utterly, utterly moronic. Could any Kiwi reasonably sympathetic to the planet, inflict Clark’s brand of hate on the world in good conscience?

    The debate should be about what charges her and her cohorts face in a New Zealand court.

    Start with High Treason and work our way down. Clark, Cullen and their apparatchiks have spent a decade advancing the cause of international socialism very much at the expense of New Zealand’s national interests. In the balance of their minds, New Zealand’s interests came a distant second to their Mao-inspired programme to turn NZ into a peasant-worker collective.

    This is treason. Let a court decide their fate.

    I want to see a Clark’s trial on TV. I want to see her flogged in Aotea Square as an example to the next generation of Labour communists that their anti-Kiwi agenda will be tolerated no longer by the decent and law-abiding citizens who for too long have been the victims of their policies.

    Then I want to see her hanged.

    Then I want to see anyone that bitches about it up against a wall.

    So I’m sure you’ll have no objection to the police searching your home on a weekly basis. After all, if you’re not committing any crimes …?

    “I do believe it AG and so do a lot of other people.”

    Fortunately, that is not the basis on which criminal investigations are launched. You name a bunch of actions you think were distasteful/breaches of the law. This is NOT the same as a criminal offence. That’s why we have legal advisors for the police, not mob justice. It’s called “the rule of law”, and has served pretty well over the past few centuries.

    But, hey … if you and your mates believe you can do better, that’s OK then.

    2-dead, if you had read DF’s post yesterday about the interview with NZ fascist leader Colin Ansell you would have noted that when the radio interviewer asked Ansell who he would vote for at the next (2008) election, the fascist said NZ First or Greens.

    You won’t find many NZ First supporters among the posters around here, and pretty well no Greens. I doubt Kyle Chapman follows Kiwiblog, and I’m sure Ansell doesn’t. It doesn’t appeal to fascists, a socialist bunch.

    Lets usher the bitch out in any way possible

    How about on a funeral pyre?

    [DPF: And that jumps across the line of acceptable discourse in a major way]

    Anyway, Clark needs this job

    Like a junkie needs their next fix.

    Time for Clark to go cold turkey. After all, the country was collectively doing her a favour on 8 November 2008. :lol:

    Oh come on.

    Hel’s is one of the most experienced political operators out there and is likely far superior to any other director level candidate the UN has either internally or externally.

    In the same way Moore was good for NZ at the WTO Clark will be good for NZ at the UN.

    Grow up people. And I don’t like Hel’s politics…

    And she won’t be around to bolster the rag tag bunch of edjits that are the majority of the Labor party.

    Its a Win Win.

    Does John not realise the risk in supporting the appointing of Clark to the UN may tar NZ with the same brush of corruption/lies/deceit she practised as PM when the truth emerges as it will?
