Maggie Barry standing orders

July 27th, 2012 at 9:00 am by David Farrar

After suggested during the paid parental debate that Labour MPs without children aren’t that well qualified to talk on the issue of paid parental leave, had a hash tag of #maggiebarrystandingorders. Pete George has some of the better ones:

  • Happy birthday @jacindaardern! Although it’s not MY birthday so I really shouldn’t comment…
  • only Maggie Barry may cite #maggiebarrystandingorders in the house
  • You can only talk about asset sales if you have three TradeMe stars or more.
  • Maggie Barry seems quite happy to talk about euthanasia. Maybe it’s a cry for help
  • Only MPs named Sarah can talk about CERA
  • MPs wanting to talk about taser will have to have been tased.
  • Maggie, I have 2 children so can talk about Paid Parental Leave twice as much.
  • No more references to Willie Apiata by MPs who haven’t rescued comrades under enemy fire
  • We can’t talk about #maggiebarrystandingorders because we’re not Maggie Barry
  • MPs wanting to talk about taser will have to have been tased.
  • You can’t make decisions about New Zealand unless you’ve never left the country.
  • No-one in National or ACT can talk about public transport
  • Under #maggiebarrystandingorders only Peter Dunne can speak on planking.
  • @DavidClarkNZ must be on the minimum wage to put forward a minimum wage bill
  • Louisa Wall must get married wage to put forward a marriage bill

All quite funny. I would point out though that I am a regular public transport user, unlike a certain former Green MP who didn’t even have a snapper card despite decades of going on about the importance of public transport in Wellington!

    In defence of Maggie Barry, some of the most inane parenting advice I have ever received has come from my childless, younger sister. Childless women without experience in looking after children tend to have the least idea when it comes to children. Some sort of Murphy’s Law at work there or something.

    All up, it was a dumb comment by Adern (National does not care about children) and a dumb response. Sometimes, however, mothers go to hell and back for their kids and I have not seen that trait limited to one side of the political spectrum. Telling a mum that she doesn’t care about kids might well touch a raw nerve. She should have counted to ten first.

    @Bevan

    Atheism can not be considered a religion. Many atheists have moved away from the position “there is no god” because it’s stating a position for which there is no evidence, and hence is based on faith. Which is the exact opposite of what Atheist’s believe.

    The more modern statement is “there is probably no god” or “there is almost certainly no god”.

    I would have thought Jacinda would have more interest in Paid Parental Leave laws given that she may well take Parental Leave in the future whereas Maggie took her Parental Leave years ago so any law change is unlikely to ever affect her (barring an ‘accident’).

    Also – the Nats argument that parental leave is unaffordable is bogus, especially given the choice to deliver a 2 bn program of tax cuts at the start of their first term. The policy is affordable within the existing fiscal cap – it’s a matter of choices, what will be cut to pay for it?
    Labour need to explain where they will find the 150 million from and if they plan to borrow to pay for it. For the Greens it’s easy – they will say they’ll just cut spending from the 14 billion roadbuilding budget. Although that seems to be the answer to most spending challenges so they probably need to account for how many policies they are planning to pay for with the roading money and clarify that they understand the difference between capex and opex.

    @SalParadise, Atheism is the rejection of dieties, not the rejection of religion.

    Bzzzt – you’re confusing atheists and agnostics as if they are one and the same, they are not.

    “there is probably no god” = Agnostic. This person has no proof one way or the other of the existence of a god/deity therefore they believe it is not up to them to preach to others which is true. Hence the use of the word probably.

    “there is almost certainly no god” = Atheist. This person has a religious like belief that there is no god, they need no proof of this is it is what they believe to be true.

    Don’t think you can include Malcolm Muggeridge in that list because as I recall, the timing of him seeing the light strongly suggests that he had adopted the death bed confession strategy.

    Which reminds me, Reid, you didn’t respond to me, what are all the flaws in this grand strategy that I’ve also adopted? Aside of course from the prospect of being killed outright and without warning. I’ve tried to cover that base with my substantial chest and back (just in case) tatoos that testify to me repenting at the instant of my death. Is there anything else I need to worry about? :)

    On a similar theme, Clayton Cosgrove was reported yesterday as saying about his SOE Bill (75% majority required to overturn:

    It protects essential state assets such as New Zealand Post, Kiwibank and KiwiRail from attempts to sell them off for short term profits.

    “Any government trying to sell these assets will need a 75 per cent majority in Parliament or win a referendum,” Mr Cosgrove said.

    “This is the acid test for the Government. If National doesn’t support this bill it will be clear they are readying more assets like KiwiRail for sale.”

    That must be ripe for lampooning too. What else does it mean if National won’t support his bill?

    I’m saying there that anyone can put a statement on a bus dude. They most likely decided on that particular statement as it is less likely to offend than something like ‘there is no god, anyone who thinks one exists is a moron’.

    If a group wants to bring people to their cause, they are more likely to do so with gentler language and trying their best to not seem as extreme as they could be perceived if they said what they were really thinking. much like most political statements made during election campaigns.

    No, you’re just lower down the scale of atheism – kind of like a Christian who is too busy to go to church every Sunday. Plus, your evidence of you and your friends is kind of a limited sample to reach a conclusion don’t you think?

    BTW, look a little up the page at YesWeDid’s comment he mistakenly directed at me: “I’m an Atheist, I don’t believe in any God, yours or any other made-up deity and it’s got nothing to do with any bus slogan or anything anyone else did or did not believe.” . He would be the benchmark atheist, you can identify this by his explicit statement “I don’t believe in god”. You and your friends on the other hand seem to be having a$2 a win, and a buck for place just in case – your sliding so far away from the explicit, you almost crossing over to agnostic territory.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agnostic

    “Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, but also other religious and metaphysical claims—are unknown and (so far as can be judged) unknowable. Agnosticism can be defined in various ways, and is sometimes used to indicate doubt or a skeptical approach to questions. In some senses, agnosticism is a stance about the difference between belief and knowledge, rather than about any specific claim or belief. In the popular sense, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of a deity or deities, whereas a theist and an atheist believe and disbelieve, respectively”

    Of course Ardern has valid contributions to the debate based on the need of the group of mums of infants as opposed to the need of funds by other groups. She can weigh up independent data sure. But this is no substitute for personal experience.
    It’s just a pity Maggie went up against a girl instead of a woman who might have provided some entertaining crossfire in the debate. My 2 dimes worth:

    Maggie’s onto something. Put it this way: Don’t listen to advice from people who don’t stand to pay any price for being wrong. The bad ideas of the left are a magnet to all kinds of elitist, know-nothing weirdos. For example: Listening to a woman compare man-woman relations to that between fishes and bicycles is enough to tell any rational individual with knowledge of how the human race perpetuates itself that this person is a rebellious nihilistic whacko with nothing to lose, the worst kind of person to take advice from… let alone model one’s entire life on.

    You might see better if you remove that eye patch. Maggie’s greatest claim to fame is as a gardener. What you’re saying is that she should stick to talking about gardening and keep her trap shut on other issues for which she has no experience or qualifications? That’s odd because I can distinctly recall many issues on which she has ponitificated for which she has no experience or qualifications…she really is an A grade hypocrite. You are allowed to criticise National MPs and still find your way to heaven.
