Labour announces more candidates

March 24th, 2014 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

has announced five new candidates to contest National-held seats at the election on September 20.

Tofik Mametov, an insurance representative, will contest Botany which is held by Jami-lee Ross.

Barry Kirker, a clinical psychologist, will contest Pakuranga, which is held by Maurice Williamson.

Jerome Mika, a union organiser, will again contest Papakura, which is held by Judith Collins.

Penny Gaylor, an Otaki member of the Kapiti Coast District Council, will contest Taranaki King Country, where sitting MP Shane Ardern is retiring.

Kelly Ellis, a Whangarei lawyer, will contest Whangarei where sitting MP Phil Heatley is retiring. Shane Reti has been selected there for National.

Dunedin South MP Clare Curran was confirmed today as Labour’s candidate.

Fair to say that none of those seats are likely to be won by Labour, so they will be hoping for list spots. This may help Gaylor and Ellis as the gender quota is now in effect.

    Either a far left clinical psychologist or bleeding heart Progressive Maurice Williamson.

    Difficult choice for Pakuranga.

    That lists six candidates. Clare Curran is the current Dunedin South MP and must rate a chance of holding it. Much will depend on how Labour and her perform between now and the election, and who National stand against her. The 2011 National candidate Jo Hayes recently became an MP via a list retirement but is standing in an electorate up north somewhere this time.

    David Clark was also confirmed as a candidate in the weekend, for Dunedin North.

    And another Labour candidate announcement:

    Far North teacher Kelvin Davis will have another tilt at the Te Tai Tokerau seat for Labour in this year’s general election.

    He retired from politics after losing while substantially closing the gap on his Mana Party rival Hone Harawira in 2011, but was sought out by Te Tai Tokerau Labour officials who believe his experience could bring victory in September.

    After flirting with Dotcom this will put even more pressure on Harawira.

    I was looking for enlightenment about what constitutes a “worker” and if the differentiation was to do work that was more physical.

    And inferring that if Labour Party candidates are to fulfil some notion of being about ‘real workers’, there might be some expectation that those who were to be candidates for the National Party could not be real workers, e.g. Fulton Hogan employees.

    A bit like the oft used expression about academics getting a job in the ‘real world.’

    Most seem to be grossly under represented in the line up of current & prospective Labour parliamentary troughers supposedly speaking for all workers.

No other country exposed the ‘hoax’ – the Russians for example would have had powerful motivations to do so.

    Not if you know the background.

    Tens of thousands of people worked on the Apollo programme. Not one of these people has come forward to admit the hoax, even though that would mean fame and fortune.

    Strawman. Since most of the Apollo programme was real, most of the people who worked on it had no reason to think that it wasn’t legit.

    No other country exposed the ‘hoax’ – the Russians for example would have had powerful motivations to do so.

    Actually not. Both the Russians and the Americans benefited from the Nazi research when WW2 ended. Disclosure by either the US or Russia would mean that both risked exposing their own covert programmes.

    Similar reasoning disposes of your other claims

    In other words, you can’t refute them.

    Michelle Obama is a woman

    except that “she” has a penis and other masculine features.

    Queen Elizabeth did not eat several Canadian children

    That isn’t a claim that I have made.

    and there were no rivers of ‘molten’ steel under the collapsed World Trade Center.

    Except that witnesses reported seeing them, and the fact that worker’s boots would melt tends to confirm this.

    Just for you Ugly, I googled the parallax story and, surprise, surprise, it’s a load of bullshit:

    So a researcher goes off to create a new technique for visualizing parallax, applies it to one toy example, and then proceeds to use that method to “invalidate” the Apollo photographs — and only they.

    He skipped the part where he validates that his method works for parallax at all relative scales (including the miles-long scales alleged in lunar photography). Parallax does not exhibit linear behavior as distance varies. The ratio of distances from the viewer to two objects, the d1/d2 ratio in the projection math, determines the lateral effect of parallax observed between those objects. Hence if two distant objects are used as references such that the distance ratio approaches 1, little difference will be observed.

    He skipped the part where he validates that his method works for determining via parallax whether subject photographs were taken in the field or in a studio, as he alleges the Apollo photographs were. Conspicuously missing is any study of the method as applied to known studio photography.

    He skipped the part where he studied whether any distortions in the image might be caused by the non-linear effects of the Zeiss Biogon lens, a feature for which it is justly famous. In the larger sense, the researcher here has failed to perform any sort of error analysis. He simply attributes all anomalous data to the hypothesis he wants to test: that Apollo photographs were taken indoors.

    He skipped the part where he determined that photographs taken in a domed studio, as he alleges, differ from photographs taken in the field in a way that his method can discern. This is pure question-begging. He determines analytically that a certain degree and type of distortion would occur if the backdrop were attached to a concave surface, but fails in any way to validate or confirm that it would produce the effect seen.

    In short is a very common story: snappy visuals that seem to illustrate an important scientific point, with absolutely no scientific rigor placed behind it. Pseudoscience. He hopes the viewer will be impressed with his ability to distort photographs seemingly at random and make animated GIFs and assume that he got all the rest of it right.

    From the ever-helpful RationalWiki:
    There is no documented evidence of the presence of actually-melted steel at ground zero. The molten material noted in the 911 Commission report was “slag”, not a molten metal. Most of the reports of “molten steel” found at ground zero were merely references to obviously red-hot solid steel. Even if they actually found “molten” metal, aluminum (which the planes were made out of) melts well under the temperature of jet fuel (pure aluminum melts at 660C, jet fuel burns up to 980C[14]). In addition, the mix of jet fuel, plastics, rugs, curtains etc. may burn hot enough to melt aluminum.

    Additionally, the melting point of steel is within the range of 1425-1540C, well outside the temperatures recorded at Ground Zero in the weeks following the attacks. What conspiracy theorists fail to note is that steel thermally expands while it remains strong and thus fire rapidly destroys uninsulated steel structures, and steel begins to lose its structural integrity (and red hot steel itself burns in air or in the presence of steam) at well below its melting point, or 700-820C, well within temperatures recorded at ground zero in the weeks following the attacks). Meanwhile, molten steel is not typically found at the site of buildings that have actually been demolished using “explosives” to sever columns. Also, the first law of thermodynamics prevents even the super hot molten product of thermite charges from remaining molten long after thermite ignition. Therefore, whatever molten materials were observed at ground zero in the weeks following the collapses, that molten material was not originally present and molten at the time of the collapses (it began to melt after the collapses, not before the collapses).

    In October, 1964 when I was 12 years old, I was an inmate at the Kamloops school and we were visited by the Queen of England and Prince Phillip. I remember it was strange because they came by themselves, no big fanfare or nothing. But I recognized them and the school principal told us it was the Queen and we all got given new clothes and good food for the first time in months the day before she arrived.

    The day the Queen got to the school, I was part of a group of kids that went on a picnic with her and her husband and some of the priests, down to a meadow near Dead Man’s Creek. I remember it was weird because we all had to bend down and kiss her foot, a white laced boot.

    After awhile, I saw the Queen leave the picnic with ten children from the school, and those kids never returned. We never heard anything more about them and never met them again even when we were older. They were all from around there but they all vanished.

    The group that disappeared was seven boys and three girls, in age from six to fourteen years old. They were all from the smart group in class. Two of the boys were brothers and they were Metis from Quesnel. Their last name was Arnuse or Arnold. I don’t remember the others, just an occasional first name like Cecilia and there was an Edward.

    This starts out with some Left wing losers with a tranny for good measure and people end up arguing 9/11 conspiracies. Man, I love the internet.

    So there were no “Rivers of molten steel” then UT?

    The IR photos were taken from a plane on the 16th and 23rd of September. Either the witnesses were reporting an earlier observation or the metal was hidden underneath debris.

    There is no documented evidence of the presence of actually-melted steel at ground zero.

    @UT,

    If that story could be shortened it would be on a NZ billboard!

    @ PG
    “The 2011 National candidate Jo Hayes recently became an MP via a list retirement but is standing in an electorate up north somewhere this time”.

    Jo Hayes has now moved to Masterton Pete and had put a nomination in to be the National candidate for the Wairarapa.
    Nominations close soon and selection is sometime in April.

    It is a wonder “imbecile” Braunias of socialist doctrine, has not joined this disguisting and idiotic bunch lining up for the taxpayers’ trough, under Labour’s umbrella. He would fit in well being a devout bludger, leech, and loser.

    ivm: “…the taxpayers’ trough”

    Are you referring to Parliament and being an MP as the “taxpayers trough?” If you are, and think that is bad, wrong, disgusting not desirable, got to got rid of, what are the alternatives?
