Best ever thread on The Standard

May 31st, 2014 at 4:00 pm by David Farrar

Someone called Geoff (note not brave enough to use his full name) at asked:

Why does David Farrar hate Winston Peters so much?

The answer incidentally, which I provide at the end of the 200 comments or so, is:

Best ever thread on The Standard. I love the side-track into astrology.

I guess it would be far too simple to ask me directly why I dislike Winston as a politician.

It goes back to the early 1990s when he defamed numerous people under parliamentary privilege, including several neutral public servants. He once made the mistake of repeating his lie outside Parliament and got done by Selwyn Cushing for defamation.

I was a member of the Young Nationals Executive that in 1992 (off memory) asked the Party’s National Executive to expel Peters from the party. So the conspiracy theories about Brendan Horan and the like are amusing, but rather off the planet.

I could also add on half a dozen other reasons for my dislike of Peters (which is rare – I like most MPs) such as his splitting up the Coalition in 1998, his lies over the Owen Glenn donations, his racist scaremongering against Asians etc. But we don’t have all day. Suffice to say my position on Peters has been rather consistent for 20 years or so.

But what I love are the various comments from the assorted commenters (again none willing to use their actual names) which include:

“Heard Farrar on RNZ today. Confirmed two things – he has a voice best suited to silent movies and he has nothing interesting to add to political debate. “

“yeah well they are all complete arseholes and we’ve all seen far, far too much of those hagged, wrinkled tory scumbags over the years so it’s entirely understandable we’ve ruled them out.
The problem with tories is they’re all psychopaths that hate the idea of people working together. Why would any sane person really care to listen to their stupid opinions??”

“Nah, it’s David Farrar. He’s a bad person. He’s working hard to make most peoples’ lives worse.”

“It is very, very simple and understandable, that David Farrar dislikes Winston and NZ First. They are the most unpredictable factor in the coming election. David Farrar is a Virgo by star sign, that means he likes order, control and such, and that is what leaves him in a situation, where “disorder’ and “unpredictable situations” just cause too much distress to him, he simply cannot cope with that.

So here we go, Winston is anyway the total “enfant terrible” in NZ politics, he may be in the game, he may not be, but for the fact nobody, least Fart(arse) aka Farrar can predict anything, it is an element that causes irritation and disturbance. Farrar better book another trip to climb another mountain, if he cannot bear the unpredictable and insecure situation.”

“Because winston is dashing and debonaire and is a hit with chicks while he farrar is a snivelling little tory kiss ass suckup with zits.”

“Farrar is a grossly over-entitled political parasite, a Wellington courtesan who loves being near power and exercising power and imaging he can manipulate the powerful. As an unelected player, he joins the Gowers and the Garners and the rest of the incestuous parasites on the democratic establishment who are drunk on the idea of being able to exercise their power without fear of any responsibility or of being held accountable by democratic means.”

“David Farrar is John Key’s Mini – Me !”

“Thanks to this thread I now have a disturbing image of Farrar being the court eunuch ‘ Varys’ aka ‘ the spider’, from the Game of Thrones ……….. just out of interest does he get around in silk robes ?”

“farrar hates everyone. thats the nub.”

The suggestion that my dislike of Winston is because I am a Virgo is my personal favourite. I also like the comparison to Varys – I take it as a compliment, even if not intended as such :-)

    Of course the real reason DPF dislikes WP so intensely (and of course he’s never going to admit it) is because Mr. Farrar has always been secretly and uncontrollably besotted by Jenny S.

    Winston hurt Jenny badly, and Dave, like the true gentleman he is, has never forgiven him.

    This is also the reason DPF remains single.

    He measures any potential wife/ partner against his unrequited love Jenny, and they all come up badly wanting.

    I’m more than happy to say I can’t stand David Farrar. I think he and his kind are a blight on the nation, they are holding the line for a destructive, socially corrosive political economy that is on its last legs hopefully and I’ll celebrate when they are gone.

    Yes, so DPF employs workers, and pays taxes – but Geoff still thinks that DPF is a blight on the nation.

    Yeah, riiiiiiight – that’ll explain why so many tories are *employers*. They just *hate* the idea of people working together.

    “Why would any sane person really care to listen to their stupid opinions??”

    Um….. because those opinions are actually not stupid at all – they are *correct*. But then this rant was written by a person who thinks that socialism *works* (and presumably also thinks that the world is flat).

    Left-wingers speak in slogans and invective. No wonder they don’t get anywhere.

    Why would David Farrar dislike Winston Peters?
    Up until now there has been a concensus (national/Labour /Green) to STFU on immigration. Lately (however ) there has bee a slew of home truths coming out about the effects of immigration on NZ.
    Eg

    The (Australian) Productivity Commision
    The Savings Working Group
    Treasury
    Reserve Bank
    and as Dr Greg Clydesdale puts it:
    Growing Pains: The valuation and cost of human capital

    While immigration played a key role in house inflation in the three years after 2001 (Reserve
    Bank 2007), it is unknown to what extent on-going immigration continued to drive price rises.
    The housing boom has meant good profits for many New Zealand companies supplying
    materials and building services, but it implies investors would rather invest in their country’s
    homes rather than its businesses (Bollard 2005). The high returns for property has attracted
    finance and reduced the capital available for productive investment (Moody, 2006). The
    consequence is investment is going in to industries with limited capacity to increase per capita
    incomes. For example, real estate and building are domestically bound and do not have the
    market potential of export industries. They also have less opportunity to increase productivity
    through new processes and products. The irony is, as these sectors grow, they have incurred
    skills shortages which in turn has increased demand for skilled immigrants. The Department
    of Statistics ‘Long Term Skill Shortage List’ of 28/3/2006 includes carpenter/joiner, plumber,
    electricians, fitter and turners, fitter welders; all indicative of a nation building its
    construction/property sector.
    There is a danger that a sector of the economy is being augmented that is totally reliant on a
    small domestic economy. Not only do these industries have limited potential for per-capita
    growth but ‘deriving growth via factor inputs such as labour places pressure on infrastructure
    such as transport and land supply, and ultimately have a further negative impact on growth
    (ARC 2005). Finally, as the sector gets larger, it gains in lobbying/political strength and can
    lobby for immigration regardless if it is the best interests of the economy as a whole.
    This
    could be seen in Canada where the development industry has lobbied hard for high sustained
    immigration levels (Ley and Tutchener 2001).

    The construction industry has grown by 10,000 firms since 2002, a new Government report shows

    I do often have a good giggle at the pinko’s over at the standard. It amazes me how many of them are so obviously deranged. To them Key is a man who eats only children and spends all day laughing at those who are afflicted by cancer or various other horrible ailments.

    99.9% of the stuff they say about Key is bullshit, I wonder who they are trying to convince, the blatant lies and slander the man is subject to must be cause for legal action should Key be so inclined.

    Yes I hear some of you say, many on the right attacked Helen Klark during her term as PM, however I remain firmly of the opinion that those of us who went after Klark stuck to the fact. What I have seen written about Key is nothing more than outright lies.

    The thing that is laughable is that Key would be the most left wing Nat leader for years, it seems that what the wingnuts over at the standard really dislike about Key is that he is a National party PM. Even if Key came out tomorrow and announced the implementation of compulsory unionism and a return to 66c in the dollar as the top tax rate they would still find things to hate about the man.

    The only conclusion one can logically arrive at after reading the standard is that nearly all of them are idiots.

    Despite Nigel Farage’s prediction that the UK Independence party will cause an “earthquake” in British politics at the European Parliament elections, Britons give Ukip as much chance of winning as finding life on Mars.

    Ipsos MORI’s research reveals what the British public think is likely to happen in 2014 compared with the odds offered by Ladbrokes. Only three in ten think it is likely that they will be the largest party, the same as think the NASA Mars Rover will find evidence of life on Mars, according to the pollsters’ representative sample of 954 adults. The research company note that the odds from Ladbrokes suggest people are way out on UKIP’s chances as despite this, Ukip are still the most popular bet by far to win the European elections.

    BB: re your earlier comment about comments about Key being actionable… a Court of Appeal case from 15 or 20 years ago (Lange v. Atkinson) means that people can say pretty much whatever they like about a current OR FORMER politician…The case arose when Lange sued over some particularly nasty comment about him…went as far as the Court of Appeal which – unless you are very wealthly or on legal aid – was effectively the Court of last resort at the time.

    The case is widely recognised as being bad law, but until someone brings a similar case and takes it to the Supreme Court it remains the law of the land…

    There remains a question of just how far the right to slur a poli goes…I thought I had a test case on my hands the other day when someone called me a paedophile…but that person had the decency to retract the allegation and that was the end of the matter.

    Wow. And supposedly they’re nasty at The Standard.

    Well, let’s see, do you think DPF might have an actionable defamation claim against “Rhinocrates” in light of this comment or this comment?

    And notice how Lprent stepped in to defend the defamatory innuendo:

    [lprent: The difficulty is that if whoever you're replying to did provide date and time facts, then in all likelihood I or another moderator would have to squelch it as being likely to be a defamatory. A "fact" that we couldn't check ourselves before publication putting the site at risk. Similarly if he mentioned the name of the woman then I'd probably have to squelch it as violating their privacy - they and their children are not public figures.

    However Rhino stuck to interpretation, rumour and opinion. The only real way for Rhino to put those allegations on this site in more than general terms is to provide links. In the case of the woman and her kids I'd probably then remove the link for the same reasons above.

    So your demand is unreasonable. Don't persist in making it.

    On the other hand, like this post, it isn't hard to find some dubious dog whistling that DPF has done over the years. For instance we all learnt from him the extent to which you could denigrate politicians not on what they do, but on insinuating what they could have been doing. Of course over the years none but Cameron went further than him in being a misogynist arsehole dogwhistling for the most moronic wankers in society. ]

    Unbelievable!

    There are plenty of deranged, vindictive, stupid, no basis in fact, insulting comments on Kiwiblog. The qualitative difference from the Standard is that they form the majority of comments on the Standard with support from so-called moderation, which is exceedingly biased and vindictive against views they don’t support.

    The insulting nutters on Kiwiblog are excessive but not overwhelming. DPF’s moderation is very light and he works to try and be unbiased.

    Anyone who wants politics to retain whatever shreds of credibility, principle and propriety it has left must look with abject despair upon the prospect of the one man who’s done more than any other to strip it of those qualities being rewarded, yet again, with high office.

    You being of a legal background means you might be able to offer an opinion on the following.

    If somebody makes a claim that they have had many victories in a ten year war against the left yet cannot name even one of those victories what does that make them?

    If somebody makes repeated claims that they will never return to a blog yet cannot seem to stay away for more than a month at the most, what does that make them?

    If somebody vows never to link whore on this site but repeatedly does exactly that, what does that make them?

    If somebody keeps referring to themselves in the third person, what does that make them?

    Methinks the Penguin doth protest too much.

    He’s like Hoots – you can tell he’s lying because his lips move. Kiwibog is a troll farm, fostering racist filth and the Penguin feeds them deliberately. He’s a nasty, mercenary, lying stooge.

    There are a lot of stories floating about Wellington telling of his treatment of prostitutes as well…. I don’t know if they’re true, so I won’t repeat them.

    This I do know is true: he once allowed – some would say incited – his trolls in his sewer to stalk and threaten the young children of a friend of mine who dared to criticise him. She later attempted suicide.

    No one should be under any illusions about what a thug and liar the evil little bastard is.
