Mallard on Finlayson

October 29th, 2009 at 9:43 am by David Farrar

At , there is a blog post saying:

Wilkinson wasn’t in the House today so Finlayson answered. I don’t know what the Chief Justice saw in him. He is [deleted after careful consideration - Clare]

Now when will Labour learn about Google and the Internet. I would have through the Mussolini debacle was lesson enough, but no. Here is what Google records Trevor as originally saying:

I don’t know what the Chief Justice saw in him. He is a nasty sarcastic man – so twisted that if he ate nails he would pass screws

What a wonderful reminder of the old Trevor, and the last Labour Government. Anyone recall “cancerous and corrosive”?

I mean this is what one of Labours most senior MPs think is appropriate to write on their parliamentary blog, about an opponent. The vitriol just drips.

Also featuring on the Labour blog, is this comment by a Jennifer:

By the way, I also was somewhat shocked to see the ‘mean and nasty’ side of Tinkerbell.

Now I of all people don’t believe a blog owner is responsible for comments made on their blog. But there is more to this, than meets the eye. You see Labour MPs – especially – yell out Tinkerbell at the Attorney-General constantly in the House. So Jennifer is just following the lead of her caucus.

Now I think everyone knows Chris is gay. He doesn’t make a big fuss about it, it is just the way things are. But Labour seem obsessed with the fact an openly gay politician is a front bench National Minister. The so called party of tolerance and equality call him Tinkerbell. Maybe Rainbow Labour would like to show some balls, and point out to their own Caucus why this is a bad and stupid thing to do.

    They are probably just trying to pay us back for taking the mickey out of dopey Criscilla but that’s because he uses his sexuality as a defence for his stupidity and troughing. No one could accuse Finlayson of either of those sins he is one sharp cookie.

    After the way Mad Duck Mallard hectored Don Brash during the latter’s crisis, it’s no surprise that Mad Duck has reverted to his viciousness. He’s a bully and a thug, too, as the incident with Henare showed, though his quack is worse than his peck.

    The Mad Duck is also a hypocrite, as his own private affairs showed soon after he had been leading allegations against Brash. What goes around, comes around, and will do so again for Mallard.

    It’s fortunate that that Mallard is thick. If Mad Duck had more than a bird brain he’d be bloody dangerous.

    I wish people would leave homosexuals alone. They should be judged on their work and behaviour not their innate sexuality. The best boss I ever had in a job was homosexual. Mallard should remember he could just as easily have been born homosexual. However bullies don’t think like that. They prey on the weakness of others.

Jennifer should shave her back and at least pretend she’s not a troll.

    Nothing to do with Finlayson’s sexual orientation but everything to do with his nasty misogynist comments aimed especially at Annette King but also at Lianne Dalziel.

    I’m happy to stand by my record on gay rights issues. And DPF needs to differentiate my voice from my benchmates.

    But being gay does not exempt someone from reaction. There are some people who think we should use different standards in Parliament when responding to women or Maori and now apparently gays. That they be allowed to be offensive and we bite our tongues. I don’t.

    And when Finlayson dishes it up he will get it back. Sometimes from me.

    [DPF: Clayton Cosgrove also has called out Tinkerbell.

    If you think anyone at all thinks the nickname of Tinkerbell is not to do with his sexual orientation, you are dreaming. I have no problems with responding to barbs with barbs, but I suspect very few of your own supporters would think sexual orientation is something you should hassle someone for

    Incidentially the only person who has suggested being gay is a defence from criticism is one of your colleagues.]

    Take your own advice: Dish the shit, don’t whinge when you get it served back. And I do assume that if Annette King and Lianne Dalziel are on the receiving end of “misogynistic comments”, they’re quite capable of taking exception on their own behalf.

    They call Finlayson Tinkerbell because he is just far too intelligent for them. They just can’t compete so they want to provoke the reaction that he is far too intelligent to provide. Outcome? Nats 1 Creeps 0 every time they do it. I would guess Finlayson loves it every time they do it because he knows he’s won and they’ve got nothing.

    Mallard is a nasty, envy-driven, spiteful little piece of dogshit. I don’t know why people tend to attribute any degree of machismo to him. He isn’t a “mad dog”, a “tough guy” or the “muss”. He is just a nasty, envy-driven, spiteful little piece of dogshit.

    When I see or hear his name I think about that photo of him in standing in the dock looking like a frightened little school boy. That’s the real Mallard.

    It also reminds me of his farcical and transparent posturing over the proposed Auckland waterfront stadium and how everyone involved essentially ignored his threats and told him to fuck off with the inevitable consequence that he got told by the boss to pull his head in.

    Mallard typifies everything that Liarbore stands for. That’s because he is a nasty, envy-driven, spiteful little piece of dogshit.

    No Trevor, we don’t think there should be different standards for responding to gays, women et al. We think that people who work in parliament should maintain the same standards as exist in every other workplace in the country. Namely, if you yell abuse at people on a regular basis you should be sacked.

    I go to meetings at work, I sometimes strongly disagree with other people and I argue my case. But I maintain professional standards and don’t reduce myself to name-calling and tantrums. Why do politicians believe they are so exempt from the standards of normal professional, not to mention civilised, behaviour?

    He may as well have shouted “nigger” at Finlayson. It’s about as relevant Tinkerbell was in the (alleged) circs.

    That’s a very good idea though. Hopefully he will, because if nothing else, history shows that Mallard is a bit of a slow learner.

    Ah, Luc Hanson.

    Someone else who looks to justify a pet’s behaviour on the basis of the behaviour of others. So you’re defending Mallard under good old principle of: “well they did it first” or “you do it too”. And because we all play in the sandpit at KB, its OK for Mallard to call Finlayson “Tinkerbell”. After all, Muldoon started it.

    Personally, I think its great and I have no doubt that Finlayson does too. I don’t know about Mallards “rainbow” colleagues, but if it pisses them off, then that’s all good too.

    But you should climb down off you little pyre of superiority because you miss the point that is reflected in Mallard’s feeble and hasty justification. I say hasty, because he forgot to add: “why, some of my best friends are homos”. The point here is Mallard’s hypocracy; not that of the happy band of contributors to this blog.

    But now that we know you’re solid on Trev’s team, and given that bad behaviour is justified if some else does it too/first, maybe you could help me out with the following. (Trev seems to have been a bit reluctant in the past).

    Why has he hitched his sad-arse to the wagon that is some of the most despicable behaviour in government that this country has seen eg stealing taxpayer money, passing a law to subsequently legitimise that theft and banning free speech, lying about Peters/Glen, supporting and colluding with Peters re Glen, shitting on their biggest donor to try and save their sorry skins, politicising the police, removing Privy Council appeals with no electoral mandate, lying about the cost of the trainset to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, lying about ACC, laughing about lying about ACC, pulling off the biggest con job of the century so far regarding NZ greenhouse emissions, lying about Key, selling passports (Liu), ignoring Field’s transgressions, spinning an independent QC’s report as part of that process, and then in opposition, the setup with Goff’s special friend, the lies about polling … (I’m sure there’s more but there is just so much) …?

    Did someone on KB do that stuff? Did Muldoon do that? Or is that stuff just OK and part of the rough and tumble of politics or was it just the necessary means to the end of completely fucking this country and lowering general expectations of standards of behaviour by politicians and in society generally. After all, if its OK for the people running the country to pinch money and lie, why shouldn’t I?

    Superlative posts. Well said.

    Without trying to sound all moral and superior, in all seriousness I really am at a loss as to how some people can behave in that manner (lying to the public, stealing money, stealing opposition MPs personal papers and diaries from the Chamber, Labour staffers stealing boxes of alcohol from the parliamentary press gallery party, accepting bribes, punching people in the head etc) and sleep at night, thinking there is absolutely nothing wrong about that kind of behaviour, or indulging in it. Don’t these people who do these things know right from wrong? And if Trevor Mallard sees nothing wrong with this behaviour I can only give thanks that he no longer has responsibility for teaching our children anymore.

    I can’t think of a time when I’ve ever taken serious offence at what you’ve said or done in the past, Trevor, and I’ve even gone so far as to praise you in this far-from-welcoming environment. I disagree with your “nasty, sarcastic” description of Finlayson – whom I also admire – but if you want to turn politics into a form of hand-to-hand combat, so be it… but be prepared to die by the sword too.

    But now it seems that not only have you descended to hypocritical sledging based on sexual orientation (hypocritical because, as others have pointed out, Labour’s collective noses are poised to get out of joint at any such abuse – real or imagined – of its gay members and clearly considers itself morally superior as a result).

    But you’ve also come here to a forum where people have always been prepared to engage with you and insulted our intelligence with that bit of laughable dissembling.

    You’ve developed, for better or worse, a reputation as a plain speaker, so let me speak plainly in response – for fuck sake grow up, Trevor. Sniggering at people because they’re gay isn’t funny. It wasn’t when “Carry On” and “Are You Being Served?” did it and it’s even less so now. What’s next, fart jokes?

    Frankly, I’m still gobsmacked at Trevor Mallard’s pathetic attempt to rewrite history. The “Tinkerbell” jibe is clearly a reference to Finlayson’s sexual orientation. The irony of course, as others have noted, is that Labour has any number of openly gay MP’s. Had Nick Smith or Gerry Brownlee for argument’s sake made the same comment about Charles Chauvel or Chris Carter, there would have been outrage from the Labour benches.

    I have lost all respect for Trevor Mallard over the last few weeks. He has made a series of allegations against Bill English which have been disproven. Last week he made allegations against Nick Smith on Red Alert, using innuendo over Smith’s past history of mental health issues. Today, he has been exposed as homophobic. In addition, he has obviously taken lessons from Lynn at The Standard, and seems to spend his entire day on Red Alert deleting any comments which do not reflect his worldview.

    Trevor Mallard is, IMHO, yesterday’s man – just like his leaders. Labour has recently referred to the likes of Smith and Tony Ryall as “throwbacks to the 90′s”, forgetting of course, that Phil Goff, Annette King and Mallard himself all served under the Lange/Palmer/Moore regime.

    The twisting of words here is simply glorious to behold. Distortion writ large. How on earth davcinci extended my few words to his first paragraph, above, well, I have no idea.

    I simple intended to say only that many posters here behave just as badly as Trevor. Maybe I should have specifically have excluded sexual innuendo – is calling me a girl sexual innuendo? – but certainly no implication of DPF approving sexual innuendo was implicit or explicit in my post (I’m not writing a treatise in each post, and it’s impossible to forecast every available permutation of possible interpretations). But plenty of savage attacks are permitted anyway. That’s what I thought I was talking about. And I made the point that I’m not complaining about it!

    Neither was approval of Trevor implicit or explicit in my post. I believe it is pretty harsh in Parliament, with Trevor one of the worst, but by far not the only, offender. But that’s not my concern. They are big boys and girls and can look after themselves. As a topic, it’s not a high priority for me.

    This is a partisan, extreme right, environment. All many of the most active posters here want to do is wallow in a narrow range of views. That’s not healthy. Neither is the closed mind, pack hunting mentality exhibited here so often.

    Obviously suggesting the bully boys here look at their own behaviour struck a nerve.

    Good job.

    Jesus Luc. If you went to the Vatican and screamed “The Popes a wanker” what do you think the Swiss Guard would do?

    Ross beat me to it: Mallard is a thug and a coward who deserves to be ignored.
    The MP for Hutt South is a true reflection of the shambles the socialist Labour Party has become.

    You gotta laugh when Trevor calls Chris a ‘nasty, sarcastic man’, then his very next words are a nasty, sarcastic comment about nails and screws.

    So do tell: what was it that Finlayson said about King and Dalziel that so offended you?

    my God .. there has been some serious downloading here .. brilliant.
    The thing is this .. Trevor has been told these things on many occasion’s but it won’t make a blind bit of difference to what he thinks which is weird because they set up Redalert to engage with the voters but only seem to expect praise .. go figure.
    All the things mentioned by the thedavincimode and sarko are facts that can’t be fobbed off as spin so???

    Trevor has a very short fuse, and National keep lighting it. And Labour keep putting him up to have more brain explosions. Hardly a winning strategy.

    Have said it many times, Mallard is the first living brain donor…..

    None of us are really surprised by this behavior he shows time and time again. As was said above, a Leopard doesnt change its spots….

    Imagine working in a company that had a leader like Goof, that allows his staff to lie and have Mallard outbursts, the company would be bankrupt. Oh thats right, Labour is pretty much bankrupt or the political equivalent…..

    The Nats could not wish for a better opposition..

    Murray M, I rest my case. And don’t you worry, I can take the heat AND remain polite.

    Marknz is one of those who believes that objecting to injustice is racist. And he has a lot of support here. Delusion is seductive; analysis is difficult.

    Try debating Mark, instead of ranting. I consistently advocate the two state solution for that ongoing tragedy (for both sides) and that solution is supported by about 95% of the worlds population.

    Do you know that 68.8% of Israel’s citizens were born in Israel? And I think the post-1948 population in the OPT is much closer to 90% , but I will need to check that. They are all the true victims. Born into a conflict not of their making and brainwashed from birth.

    The only intractable aspect about the conflict is the US’s perceived national interest. And even that is under scrutiny more than ever before. Once the US withdraws its veto protecting Israel, it will only be a matter of time before we see reconciliation and co-existence.

    I struggle to see anything anti-Semitic there, or in my blog, but feel free to put me right if you disagree.

    [DPF: gender, race, religion, ethnicity, marital status, and childlessness all are nos in my book as taunts. Political orientation is a yes as that is what politics is about - debating political views]

    Agree with most.

    Religion is the only exception. People choose their religion in the same way in which we choose our political values. If Trevor turned out to be a Scientologist or Mormon, I reserve the right to mock him. I mock anyone with imaginary friends, but some religions are just more mockable!

    Deary me Luc

    Yet another savvy swilling student union socialist scuttling from reality like a cockroach from the light and under the cover of glib generalisations, weasel words and obfuscation.

    But you have at least confirmed what I said. Trev’s A OK because of the KB sandpit. And, predictably, you won’t confront what your dahhling Trev was party to.

    Is there ever a point under all that empty verbiage? All that name calling, ideology projection, and listing of all those buzz words scribbled in your notebook?

    Or is all just a secret code?

    I’m sorry. I guess I didn’t make myself clear.

    1. My main hypothesis is that your dahhling Trev is a nasty, envy-driven, spiteful little piece of dogshit. That is self-evident from what he has done and been party to over the last ten years. I believe this is well documented – perhaps you have been living on Mars or too busy in the garden to notice.

    2. I think its great that he calls Finlayson “Tinkerbell” and I expect that the longer he does it and the more people hear about it, the better Finlayson will like it. In fact I think that for all the reasons canvassed on this thread its hilarious. I’m hoping he will call someone “nigger” but that might just be too much to hope for even from your dahhling Trev.

    3. You can’t justify his behaviour on the basis of the KB sandpit or what you think about the people that play in it any more than you can deny that a burning building is on fire just because a pyromaniac told you it was.

    Hope that sums it up for you. Great to chat.

    Nightie night!

    Hurf

    the only peace Israel’s ruling thugs wish for as regards the Palestinians is the peace of the oppressed or the dead.

    You are deeply, deeply racist and Islamaphobic, in my opinion.

    It’s your racism that informs your support of oppression, dispossession, apartheid and mass slaughter.

    You need to get over it.

    The endgame is already apparent. Historic Palestine will become one country, a brand new nation. I expect a couple of million or so of Israel’s Jews will bugger off, but the rest will stay and drive the future success of that new state. The only question is how long and how many thousands of innocent Palestinians will be slaughtered in the meantime.

    It’s all about equal human rights
