The MP that never was

* Jadis post – if it isn’t a travel blog post it will be from Jadis.  As tempting as it is to go climb a mountain I am doing stuff that normal people do like looking after my family, building two businesses, volunteering to a few causes I believe in and providing the odd barb here in the hope that DPF can hang on to a few followers while he is gallivanting around the countryside… or mountainside.

The Herald reports:

’s says discussions with a sitting electorate MP who was poised to join the party have ended due to the prospect of a tie up with Hone Harawira’s Mana Party.

When my daughter was little she had imaginary friends.  She had around ten of them and they had various names and distinct personalities.  We did a bit of research into them and this Wikipedia entry sums it up pretty well:

Imaginary friends or imaginary companions are a psychological and social phenomenon where a friendship or other interpersonal relationship takes place in the imagination rather than external physical reality. Imaginary friends are fictional characters created for improvisational role-playing. They often have elaborate personalities and behaviors. Although they may seem very real to their creators, children usually understand that their imaginary friends are not real.[

The key line is that children usually understand that their imaginary friends are not real.  Kim Dotcom clearly does not understand that “” or perhaps he calls him”Mister Reempy” is a figment of his own imagination.  I fear that all those role-playing games that Mr Dotcom likes to play have blurred his lines between reality and fiction.
