Heh

blogs:

The Party has admitted receiving a donation to its coffers from the National Party.

National Party President Peter Goodfellow confirmed the donation yesterday. He said it was a contribution towards the costs of running Labour’s blogsite .

“They are doing great work, and we want that to continue,” said Mr Goodfellow.

Heh.

Mr Mallard said he was looking forward to getting heavily into blogging this year.

“We’ve all had some time off and are refreshed, and we’re ready to take the battle to David Farrar.

“We want to focus on the issues that are important to ordinary New Zealanders. Jobs, the economy, and David Farrar.”

I’ve never been an issue before! I have to say I did almost piss myself laughing at it. The irony is that by falsely claiming I was one of those trying to “censor” Red Alert, the end result has been more fuel for those who claim it should be shut down.

    It’s very amusing, but also exceptionally frustrating, that these “representatives”, on the taxpayers’ payroll, spend so much time arguing, debating, rebutting other bloggers on the internet. Who CARES, if “Zetetic” or David Farrar or Cam Slater criticise you, Trevor? Clare, who cares if David Farrar and the rest of the VRWNLLC want to censor Red Alert? I’d find Red Alert much more useful (though probably also more frustrating) if they would just write their opinions on topical issues of the day. I don’t want a round up of the day’s activities in blogland!

    Imperator Fish’s post is worth reading in full, very entertaining.

    I read Red Alert’s post about NZ on Air and censorship yesterday afternoon and was very amused to see a comment from one person saying Red Alert shouldn’t censor people’s comments, then immediately underneath that was a comment that Trevor Mallard erased in full! The comment may well have been objectionable and worthy of being removed, but the placement of the two comments was funny. Especially since this is a regular occurrence.

    If David Shearer can’t sort this out, then Labour is fucked. And the Greens will add another few percentages in 2014, though still remain in Opposition. I hope Red Alert lasts for a 1000 years!

    Congrats DPF. In one swift stroke, Ifish (has that been copyrighted yet? Don’t want to be arrested) has annointed you as the “Matt Damon” of the NZ Blogosphere.

    Go Team America!

    @ Pete; I’ve never been anything more than a mere foot-soldier in the battle. Let Lt Col Farrar, Air Vice Marshall Slater and Admiral Cactus take the kudos…

    Thought this comment was utterly brilliant:

    I think there are two separate debates happening around the Red Alert site.

    1) those to the right, who know Red Alert rates very well, would like to see it muzzled and its popularity diminished.

    2) those to the left who understand Red Alert’s effectiveness and potential (and just like MMP for instance) would like to see it maximised and the issues with it ironed out.

    Surely another donation can be found to encourage work of this fellow?

    And who are these right-wingers who want Red Alert muzzled? I demand names!!

    Just a fucking dickhead. Long may he last.

    As many keep saying, you just couldn’t script this stuff.

    Is it just possible that Mallard is an even bigger fuckwit than Goff?

    If you’re giving them similar ranks, Farrar should be a General, not Lt Col.

    I saw a documentary on Discovery about gambling big time. This guy would bet millions on a losing team just to boost the odds on a sure winner. He has a team working for him, can’t remember his name or the program.
    All sounds familiar yes?

    @ davinci, I don’t think there are small, medium or big fuckwits. When you become a fuckwit it is a state, there is no coming back, you are a fuckwit forever

    That doesn’t make sense. Surely the increased odds on the ‘sure winner’ would never replace what he had lost by betting on the losers.

    I must note again I named Red Alert Blog of the Year 2011. I can’t see anything wrong with it other than Labour’s internal nambys getting their little feet all cold.

    Red Alert is a most glorious window on Labour, presenting the most glorious evaluative opportunity for intending voters.

    Even with 30 times its funding, it couldn’t be more of an advertisement for Labour’s elemental inadequacy and complete and utter failings if it tried.

    There’s the daily inconsistencies and all the fascinatingly obscure ways they’re mooted and contested, delivered so compellingly in its vacuum of intelligent and intellectual contributions. Most consistently, there’s its dog-eat-dog rabidity of “censorship.”

    Utterly incredibly that it is its party’s official organ, run by Mallard, irrevocably displaying the incontestably woeful product that is Labour through and through.

    Long, long, long may it continue.

    Positan is bang on. It’s laughable in it’s painfulness. Labour’s complete self serving sense of entitlement laid bare for all to see. It’s ugly – no wonder the voters deserted it.

    Mallard – give up politics, write a book, ride your bike and reclaim your dignity.

    Burt, I think it’d be the most impossible ask ever made for Mallard to reclaim his dignity. He’s so determinedly squandered, prostituted and misapplied his credibility and whatever other talents God gave him for so long now that there’s simply no way back along that road.

    Actually, now that I come to think of it – with the exception of Bill Rowling and possibly Arnold Nordmeyer, I can’t think of any other former Labour MPs who’ve departed politics with any shred of dignity still attached to their person. Can you?
