    I showed that video to my mother when it first came out and she was speechless and couldn’t believe a senior politician would be involved. My mother is never speechless. In the 70 years she has been around, never been speechless once.

    Warning: This video is rated R18.

    Which raises an interesting question. Should we as a nation be pissed enough to vote in the Corrupt Labour and Green parties as our government would that mean we would have two Green deputy Prime Ministers?

    Well, as someone who lost his political career over something in the dim past, i dont think we should be holding this silliness against Turei – especially when there is no shortage of contemporary silliness to hold against her.

    How old is this footage? Twenty years or so judging by how she looks…

    Yeah sorry David Garrett, it’s very recent:

    Published on 31 Dec 2013
    Clan McGillicuddy battle with the Waitati Militia on New Year’s Eve in a small seaside town in Otago, New Zealand.

    (from the Youtube video – I won’t post the clip again)

    Note also that it is taking place at a faux castle – which is Material Turei’s home as reported in the Otago Daily Times:
    http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/286986/video-militia-mayhem-and-madness-waitati

    Hence Tolley’s comment about her living in a castle is literal.

    This is the woman who spent a year, in her own words a year, analysing Judith Collin’s comment and still got it wrong.

    I agree with RightNow.

    There are children in NZ going to school hungry because their parents can’t afford a sandwich, and Greens are throwing flour at each other for shits and giggles. Can’t they see how immoral it is to pelt each other with food when others are starving?

    But… The woman actually LIVES IN A CASTLE. How spacey is that? And she invites the local peasants around to amuse her while she dresses up and plays with her cannon.

    The video says a lot about Turei.

    It also says a lot about the sort of people who are most likely to vote for Turei.

    Garrett, playing dress up, no matter how silly it appears to you or me, and in your spare time, is nothing like falsifying documents to claim the identity of a deceased infant… nor getting involved in a bar fight, nor lying about your convictions.

    FALSE. EQUIVALENCE.

    Turei can and should be able to spend her leisure time how she sees fit so long as it’s legal and doesn’t hurt anyone else.

    David, this is beneath you mate.

    Heaven forbid that people have things that they do for FUN, in their own time, huh DPF?

    (Remind me what your NY marathon time was, again, I don’t quite remember :-P )

    Anyway, for completeness:

    Mix-a-lot:
    I like ‘em round, and big
    And when I’m throwin’ a gig
    I just can’t help myself, I’m actin’ like an animal
    Now here’s my scandal
    I wanna get you home
    And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh
    I ain’t talkin’ bout Playboy
    ‘Cause silicone parts are made for toys
    I want ‘em real thick and juicy
    So find that juicy double
    Mix-a-Lot’s in trouble
    Beggin’ for a piece of that bubble
    So I’m lookin’ at rock videos
    Knock-kneeded bimbos walkin’ like hoes
    You can have them bimbos
    I’ll keep my women like Flo Jo
    A word to the thick soul sisters, I wanna get with ya
    I won’t cuss or hit ya
    But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna *fuck*
    Till the break of dawn
    Baby got it goin’ on
    A lot of simps won’t like this song
    ‘Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
    And I’d rather stay and play
    ‘Cause I’m long, and I’m strong
    And I’m down to get the friction on
    So, ladies! {Yeah!} Ladies! {Yeah}
    If you wanna roll in my Mercedes {Yeah!}
    Then turn around! Stick it out!
    Even white boys got to shout
    Baby got back

    RightNow, perhaps. I do think its entirely wrong to attempt to discredit Turei simply ’cause she likes amateur dramatics. I suspect Simon Bridges reads John Grisham, listens to Supertramp and wears boatshoes, but it’s his inability to keep his cool in television interviews that makes me think him unfit for Ministerial office.

    What you said earlier is absolutely correct Paul:
    “Turei can and should be able to spend her leisure time how she sees fit so long as it’s legal and doesn’t hurt anyone else.”
    In fact, as far as I’m concerned, I don’t even care if she indulges in some currently illegal activity as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.
    My point was that it’s already in the public domain, and just because some of us think it’s funny (or whatever) doesn’t mean she can’t do it.
    The video cha posted of John Key earned him a lot of ridicule from certain quarters, for example. It even made me cringe. And he got slammed by those same quarters for his Letterman appearance. It’s all fair game don’t you think?

    I still think her politics suck. And that Anne Tolley is right, the Greens are all just full of middle class guilt and assume that only they can cure poverty by increasing dependency on the state and taxpayers.

    So, a plot summary so far.

    (Cue the theme music from SOAP.)

    Meteria told Anne that she was out of touch.

    Anne asked who the hell was Meteria to say she was out of touch, because Meteria has no friends, lives in a castle, and wears expensive clothes.

    Meteria didn’t know what to do, so started running around shouting ‘Anne is a RACIST!’

    Anne’s friend Judith said Meteria was too sensitive, and probably paid too much for her jacket anyway.

    Meteria didn’t know what to do, so started running around shouting ‘Judith is a RACIST’.

    Judith said, ‘Meteria, have you met my Pasifika husband, David?’

    David said ‘Hello Meteria!’

    Metreia ran back to her castle, the one she bought with a 100% mortgage, threw foodstuffs at people, twerked, and complained that all these white women saying she was out of touch with New Zealanders had to just be RACIST.
