    There goes her homely image. I can’t image what puerile things the left will dream up to say about her.

    I’m glad she finally found the ‘lovely’ electorate that she was looking for. I’ll be doing my best to part her from that 14,574 majority though…

    Ben, you are a gormless goober who would struggle to find your own arse with both your hands, if your Standard posts are anything to go by.

    There is a greater chance of you threatening Hone Harawira with a machete than you threatening Maggie Barry on the shore.

    “National have no economic plan, and it shows.” – Ben Clark

    Ben – care to share any labour policies? anything?? anything?? maybe you could start with that mini-budget labour was going to inflict on us if they won in 2008..

    or i can do it for you

    “we are going to tax the rich”

    a sure fire way to economic recovery and prosperity.

    I know i shouldnt, but i read some of cunliffes “rebuttal”. actually i read his first point.

    “Fact: Government spending was 31.0% of GDP in 2000 and 31.2% in 2008. Under National, spending as a percentage of GDP has exploded”

    Gee! I wonder how that happened. Nothing to do with labours bribes and cullen sabotaging his own country cause hes a horrible little man

    More like National and John Key happened. A Currency trader who’s claim to fame apart from 50 mil was Firing people. And now he and Brashula Are conspiring to send this country from it’s cleanish greenish (according to Stephen Sackur who Showed o’l Shonkey what a real interviewer is) to a smoking hole in the ground with power companies owned off shore and all the best food going off shore all that will be left will be jobs in the multitude of private prisons ( No jobs, no money, crime will soar) that will spring up at $6.90 an hour (ACT minimum wage) or you could become a miner or machine operator for 9.00 an hour (specialised job) And all I see when I come here (which is why I dont comment much) are a lot of blinkered people that wont feel JK’s shaft until it’s too late. Oh and also I need a laugh because they will screw you lot just as quick as us for one reason and one reason only….. You dont have 20 million or more..

    Sure to go down real well on the North Shore.

    Mapp is a bit of a legend on the Shore; but what are the odds (with Labour in complete fucking disarray) that Maggie can increase that majority?

    I suspect holding her to that 14,000 majority would be a victory for a Slandard blogger.

    It’s good to see National really focusing on adding intellectual depth and gravitas to its stable of MPs. When Maggie becomes minister of suburban landscape gardening, and finance, I look forward to her inevitable one on one with David Cunliffe. Sure Cunliffe has worked as a diplomat, then as a business consultant, was a Fulbright Scholar and earned a Master of Public Administration from Harvard – but i’m not expecting him to match Maggie’s earthy wit and knowledge.

    Jeez Ben, I just had a look at some of your blogs and….

    I really shake my head with the tactics adopted by Labour. You clearly subscribe to the Josef Goebels theory that goes along the lines “If you repeat bullshit often enough, the gullible in society will think its actually true..”

    Well, newsflash Ben – people saw through Labour nearly three years ago and now that the fiscal chooks have come home to roost, we know that it’ll take several years of prudent management to return the books back into black ink.

    I don’t vote in your electorate, but if what I see represents your best game (and that of the Party you represent), then don’t write a resignation letter from your day job any time soon. Maggie will bolt in.

    What the hell is happening to the National party?

    Barry is at best a centre left individual who has none of the qualities that I want to see in our MP’s, I had hoped the days of ‘celebrity’ MP’s were over, very few of them have ever been a success (Graham Thorne, Chris Laidlaw, Paul Quinn being just three examples)

    What next?, will we have a Julie Christie inspired reality show where the winner becomes the National party candidate for the King Country?

    Speaking of hopeless MP’s, did anybody else see Jami-Lee Ross get cleaned up by Jacinda Adern this morning?, Jamie-Lee Ross looked and sounded like a seventh form kid who is incapable of an original thought and totally out of his depth, it was a pathetic performance.

    Manolo makes an interesting comment. The North Shore is an electorate that likes straight down the middle candidates rather than fringe people. Just a question — please don’t descend on me like a tonne of bricks — but I thought Maggie Barry was married and then she left her husband for a woman? Now I could be totally wrong.

    Cunliffe… was a Fulbright Scholar and earned a Master of Public Administration from Harvard

    Uh-oh, MPA from Harvard is equivalent to a PhD in toilet cleaning. Mr Cunliffe went to Harvard? Big deal. Note that there are reputable universities which run courses in Paranormal & Psychics. It is not the University where one attends, that makes the qualification gained from there become highly regarded! It is the type of courses that one learns from that University that makes the qualification worthwhile in the realworld.

    I think she would have been better “ammunition” in a marginal Labour seat – where she could have pulled in a lot of personal support because of her broadcasting career and maybe won the seat for National which might not otherwise have been won. She could have been given a decent List ranking to ensure she came into Parliament anyway.

    The Australian Labour Party did a similar thing four years ago when it selected a former ABC reporter to run against Prime Minister John Howard, and she beat him. (But lost the seat at the last election).

    It seems a shame to forgo the emotional pulling power that Barry has to bring in more votes, by selecting her for a safe National seat.

    Actually Cunliffe was in a few of my law/business classes at Otago.

    But sadly my lips are sealed…except to say it was clear to see him on the climb…not as clear as Mike Laws who was OUT THERE at Otago.

    He will no doubt be the new leader of Labour.

    Realistically not the next PM within the next seven years or so.

    That must irk him some.

    Considering I am in my mid-forties.

    Maybe Mike Laws should run…

    Anyway Maggie Barry is a cool LADY.

    He seems to be a bright and well-bred young man — St Kentigern’s, degree at Otago, worked for Right Hemisphere (from memory they were leaders in 3D pictures on computers), and he seems to be very entreprenurial. Nice family – well, politicians and those who want to be always have nice pictures of nice families

    What on earth is he doing in a party of social engineers and self-serving unionists who haven’t yet got to grips with why they got the toss in 2008?

    Don Brash worked as an economist for the Word Bank. Became GM of a merchant bank. MD of the kiwifruit Authority. GM of Trust bank and then the reserve bank governer.. but hes an idiot huh MB.

    oh yeah, he also has a Phd in Economics.

    Scott:

    Maggie Barry’s life has occasionally been the fodder of women’s magazines. I believe she has never married. She has a young son from a longtime relationship with a man originally from Carterton.

    If you look at the fodder in the women’s magazines, you will she she has been in a relationship with another man, and is now in a relationship with someone else, who is not a woman.

    We don’t still make judgments about MPs (and would-be MPs) based on their private lives, do we?

    MB – Your vitriol knows no bounds.

    if you were a boxer, you’d remind me of an old slugger who had a track record 48 fights, 3 wins, 2 draws and 43 losses. Its a sad inevitability that, each time you get into the ring, you don’t see it coming but you know that there is a KO punch coming your way sooner or later and that its going to land flush on the button any time. And it does – time and time again.

    Your constant theme is flinging bullshit. Pure farmyard bullshit. And because you fling so much of it, you think that the old Labour tactic of “throw enough and some may stick” will somehow apply here.

    Well, news for you too – it actually doesn’t work. Just ask Phil Goff…

    MAGIC BULLET EXPOSED!!!

    MB wrote: ” “Don Brash worked as an economist for the Word Bank.” He’s now and forever owned by them.”

    and in defense of this claim linked to this site: http://100777.com/node/1406

    The article itself is linked to these people: http://unitypublishing.com/

    Unity Publishing turns out to be a seriously whacky Roman Catholic conspiracy web site. Check it out, and see what kind of sources magic bullet is using to make his unfounded accusations against people and governments.

    The other site hosting the article is called Truthseekers.

    Truthseekers includes extreme anti-Jewsish rhetoric and conspiracy theories, and it is some of the most vile anti-Jewish hatemongering I have ever seen.

    Check it out for yourself: http://100777.com/jewry

    Both web sites make claims that “International Jewry” are behind many of the terrorist attacks and economic problems in the world.

    Magic Bullet has been asked repeatedly to provide factual evidence for his conspiracy theories, and especially for his sick 911 claims.

    He has not done so.

    I provided a web site that delt with the conspiracy theories regarding 911 using reason and science and asked him to refute their arguments.

    He has not done so.

    Now he is posting extreme anti-Jewish hate sites, merely to attack Don Brash.

    Magic Bullet is a fraud and a liar, and he has now been exposed as a hatemonger. His claim that he simply cares about peace and justice are now exposed as false.

    ( “All of us forget things now and then, but if I do it, I tend to worry,” she says. “So I try to look after myself – I eat a lot of seaweed, drink ginkgo biloba tea and I’m big on learning new things, like bridge or chess, and exercising the brain in the same way you do the body.” Maggie is also contemplating taking a saliva test that would reveal whether she has the dementia gene or not. “I think I’d rather know so I could do whatever’s possible to stop it. That’s on my list of things to do for next year.”

    Maggie Barry is exactly the type of candidate that was predicted in the runup to MMP; but on the list. Unfortunately lists have been captured by time server MP’s, and electorate fails, (and Union apparatchiks in Labour’s case) thus cutting off the prospect of worthy NZ’ers being fast tracked into Parliament. It is likely that her value as a household name NZ wide (especially among older folk) will be negated by her need to get her head down and look after her electorate. Her desire to stand in an electorate rather than surely being given a winnable place on the list is interesting; could it be because of a growing perception that list MP’s are second class?

    Not that I think Maggie is that ambitious but we never know. She is of Viking extraction and Vikings are warriors.
    Key better watch out.

    Wowy! Between the sports analogy and the taking serious of everything posted on any link, i don’t know where to start. I feel like there’s been a zombie apocalypse and the only people affected are National and Act voters.

    MB,

    YOU posted those links containing anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and hate speech. If you do not want us to take anything you post seriously then say so. If you post links that are supposed to back up your conspiracy claims and they contain whackjob fruitcake theories and anti-Jewish hatred then your claims can be judged on that basis. After all, YOUR the one posting them as evidence, right?

    Your the only zombie here. You obviously gave up rational, intelligent thought along time ago and you let these extremist whackjob web sites do all your thinking for you.

    Sad. Very very sad.

    I’m just wondering with with Ben Clark candidacy for Labour and continuing to posting on the Standard and with Former Standard blogger Clinton Smith now working in the “Goffice” are they still standing by the line that they’re not a direct part of the Labour Party but rather just Left align advocates?

    Good point.

    As a political junkie I find The Standard full of slanderous b/s. But they’re actually doing the centre right a favour. I suspect their material would be a turn-off to the average punter.

    Partly i just wanted to see if any of the official line compulsives/reactionaries ever read a link. It was a worth while experiment. To your credit you do fact check, so i can only assume your anger is faked. I have provided evidence of 9/11 taking place with at least the complicity of the Pakistani ISI, and its client organisation, the CIA. Here you are … again

    “Partly i just wanted to see if any of the official line compulsives/reactionary numpties ever read a link to post to.”

    Bullshit. You got caught out as far as your source material for your conspiracies go. Now your trying to backtrack. You posted them to test us??? Puhleeease. Thats pathetic.

    “To your credit you do fact check, so i can only assume your anger is faked”

    Wrong. I find that kind of anti-Jewish rhetoric vile in the extreme. It is no different to that promoted by the Nazis. My anger is real.

    “I have provided evidence of the 9/11 having complicity within the Pakistani ISI”

    No you have not. The Gaurdian article makes claims, but provides no verifiable sources to check those claims. Opinions are not evidence.

    Your sounding desperate. You know you have been caught out, and revealed as a purveyer of whackjob fruitcake theories published on web sites that Hitler would have approved of.

    You have no credibility here anymore, if you ever did. Everything you post from now on will be tainted by this.

    Do yourself a favour. Stop embarrsing yourself. Go away. Stay away.

    I’m done with you.

    The only time I was unfortunate to enough to tune in to Kerre Woodham’s show, she was blabbing on about how she walked past a potentially violent domestic situation and she spent the whole show basically going on about how she felt so guilty for not doing something such as calling the police or intervening herself.

    By the end of it all she was crying, I think and her callers were consoling her and suporting her.

    It was perhaps the most ridiculous piece of radio time I had ever had the misfortune or enduring.

    To describe Kerre I would use five words, fake, pretentious, egotistical, neurotic and clever.

    To describe Maggie Barry only two words are required, intelligent and genuine.

    No – that’s just what the voices in your head are telling you.
