Seems like Martyn Bradbury is back on the Dotcom payroll. Perhaps he’s giving Dotcom strategic advice on all his legal, political, financial, public relations and domestic problems!
But more seriously, the trend of protesting outside MP’s homes seems to be growing. There are plenty of opportunities to protest against MP’s without intruding on their family time, and it’s something that should be condemned, regardless of which party the MP in question represents. They are entitled to some privacy with their families.
The more I see of that fat German criminal the more I detest the mongrel. Now he is demonstrating against our elected PM at his home. That contravenes common decency in this country, something this fat slug is devoid of.
The problem for Cun*liffe is that 70% of those polled are politically uneducated, and cannot understand why the non-policies advocated by Cun*liffe and his idiotic war room are not good for New Zealand….. and that the recent budget was a travesty.
Surely the tax-evader McCarten will demand that Cun*liffe support his education union lackeys, and their demand that a Labour/Green government promise to introduce compulsory political re-education programmes for all New Zealand voters.
What is germ Campbell going to do about this latest result with his loved left-wing scroungers getting their arses kicked once more? I suppose he will endorse the obese German slug and his entourage, demonstrating outside JK’s home, where it appears he will sink to any depths in order to avoid extradition. Get this obese piece of scum out of our country NOW!
flipper: Imagine the meetings going on between “Tojo” Cunliffe, the union funds/tax thief, and the terrorist protector. They will be terrified there is going to be a takeover bid by rainbow room deviants. Grant and Alf appear to be leaders-in-waiting now Shane has seen the light. Tell me, is Alf or Grant going to be “Queen”?
Winston wont be back in even 2015 the way his minds going.
Martin Bradbury is probably the best asset for the National Party, even left wingers on National Radio hated him.
I think the guy needs his head read even though i sympathise for any poor bastard having to endure the boredom of doing that
Was away over weekend and at wedding talked with a group of 20ish men who, all but one, were labourers and farm hands,some voting for the first time,none would admit they would vote for Labour.
All felt they were paying to much tax,felt they were sidelined for young Maori at school and felt they were treated poorly by the system.
All but one, said as long as Labour pushed there agenda before the country they wont vote labour.About 6 of the 8 said if Labour GREENS got in they would go for their OE as soon as possible.
These is our taxpaying future.
A protest outside JK’s (or any other MP’s home for that matter) will achieve the effect of proving to decent people that the protesters are utter lowlife wankers.
Problem is these vermin see themselves as radicals pushing for “change” and as such any social activism is justifiable for “the greater good”.
Will the MSM now pitch in and condemn? I’m not holding my breath.
Recently we had nearly all our “leading journalists” condemn the old boy in LA telling his bit of stuff not to associate with certain folk…….. I think they need to bring their concern closer to home …….but it won’t happen.
Meanwhile reasonable people will be able to make their own minds up, but the media exposure of this behaviour will be such that we the sheeple will be left largely in ignorance of what’s going on outside our elected representatives homes.
The media is biased and compliant to the leftist agenda.
Sooner or, later the rainbow or, if you wish, homosexual mob, will realise that they are but a small, insignificant % of the voting population.
Yes, they are motivated to actively engage and to push their agenda, and yes, the majority of New Zealand voters (me among them) are happy to let them engage in their sexual proclivities. But what the majority do not want is a political agenda driven by sexual deviancy, albeit one that has existed from (well, almost) the year dot
What the rainbow mob have missed is that political appreciation circa 2014 is far more sophisticated than when, say, Sid Holland, campaigned for National “to make the pound go further”, or when Walter Nash sold the One Hundred Pound tax refund scam.
Even the half educated twit has access to a computer, and abhors those that flaunt irrelevant Phuds…. or behave like Robertson, Street, Wall, and all the other left wing wankers. At least Finlayson and Hauiti have the education and sense to keep themselves to themselves.
My message, dear readers, is that to win in Western Democratic Politics and to retain power/influence, individual/parties must win the middle.
Cun*liffe and his rainbow/union friends are deluded because they have ignored the 70% plus in the middle.
Manolo: Can we hope to stop the disease spreading here though? (And I completely agree that it is a disease…Surely we have enough evidence from the experiences of the Mother Country and Australia to see what WILL happen if we allow the percentage of Muslims in our population to climb beyond about 2%…Fortunately we are only half that now…

In a democratic country I am astonished that one man who’s mental status is questionable can highjack the whole of the city of Auckland. – GoingRight, on Whaleoil
• Len Brown is discovered to not be the Christian family man he presented himself as, instead having a two year affair with Bevan Chuang.
• So, although he claims Auckland still supports him and stands behind him, Brown knows he will fail if he stands again for Mayor.
• Brown wants to leave a legacy, his obsession, the $2.86 billion City Rail Link.
• So start it now, while he can.
Planning is under way to slash $2.8 billion of new spending at Auckland Council to control soaring debt and rates while pushing ahead with the $2.86 billion City Rail Link.
Roads, storm water, sewer, parks, libraries and other important infrastructure will have their budgets slashed. The fiscal shake-up will come at a cost to core council services, such as new libraries, swimming pools and playing fields, which face being pushed back or canned altogether. An early start to electrification of rail to Pukekohe now appears highly unlikely and bus and ferry improvements could take a back seat to the rail link.
$2.8 billion – quite a price to pay for Len Brown not being able to keep it in his pants.
Pity he wasn’t forced to stand down immediately he was found out.
Now he intends to screw all of Auckland.
Extract from an interesting piece on youth unemployment and youth rates by David Chaston in Todays Top 10 over at Interest.co.nz:
“When they were first removed in April 2008, unemployment by 15-19 year olds skyrocketed. The GFC no doubt compounded the problem, but it proved to be a huge own-goal. Since youth rates were reintroduced in May 2013, we have seen a relatively quick market response. Youth unemployment is now back to levels last seen in 2009 when they were rising frighteningly fast. They now seem to be falling quite quickly, but for almost eight years there has been considerable damage wrecked.”
Just another example of how lefties are harmful to the very people they claim to help.
Philip Hammond: People are just lending their vote to Ukip
Defence Secretary says ‘most’ people who voted for Ukip in the local elections are protesting against the Government and will return to mainstream parties by the general election.
Our establishemnt does have the message hence their anti MMP strategy. Which didn’t work!!
This mad hatter argument is blatantly non sensical. This is the unintelligent dumbed down reaction to huge establishment protest. As the Brit media has commented, voters have had enough of ‘we’re listening’ rhetoric.
This dinosaur hasn’t got the message.

I guess it depends who you mix with. I have students ranging in age from 20 to 49 and only 10% of them support National, and three of them couldn’t say why they did – just that their parents do!
The rest are spread among Labour, Greens, NZ1 and 1 conservative voter. Plus 2 Internet Party and Maori (only 2 of which will vote Maori Party).
All Students (university) were annoyed with the Budget, which had nothing particular for them in it. They were most pissed at the govt decision to take funding from certain tertiary education areas and put it into only those areas which were of financial benefit to the current governments agenda. They were peeved off that the govt. made it sound like they were putting extra money in, when in fact they were just taking it from other areas of tertiary study, and pointed out that its fine if a student is strong in Maths and science, but what about the rest of those (approx. 50%) that aren’t? Are they now meant to have no aspirations above working for Macdonalds?

So it is now back to what it was in 2009 when there was a GFC to blame, but now there is no GFC to blame, and you’re claiming it as some sort of victory? When youth unemployment falls to the lowest level its ever been, you have something to crow about. Until then, it looks a lot like desperation to me.
Now, apart from the politicians, this is what you call a true bludger. If whale oil and Kiwiblog whingers were complaining about this kind of scamming they would have real merit. Although, only half a mill in 30 years. The pollies will be giggling.
Judith ,you’re talking to school kids,these guys actually work.
They actually pay for what they use and have responsibilities.
One was only going to stay because his GF was a trainee nurse and she had to finish her studies if LAB/GREEN got in.
Teachers and students aren’t the real world,they have simply no idea that all you have is what you can earn,produce.
Not borrow interest free and think about living life in the utopia that is LALA land.
You simply don’t get it, and that’s the real issue facing Labour,it’s about surviving and living life,not ideology.
Not desperation at all, Judith. Just common sense.
When you have 16 years olds competing with 30+ year olds for the same jobs, the 16 year olds will lose out almost every time because they have fewer life skills, no experience and are less reliable. Therefore, they are less productive. That is why 16 year olds need to sell their labour more cheaply, if they want to get a job. Better still, they should remain at school or go into a training scheme.
I agree it is not a good idea to protest outside a politician’s house, but people should wake up and recognise that we’re dealing with Marxists/ Leninists here and that is the kind of strategy they have always employed. Violence and hate is in their psyche.
However KDC is merely looking for political allies to help him in pushing back against the political forces mustered against him by National and its supporters like Cameron Slater.
I say you can’t blame him for not wanting to go to the US to face a kangaroo court and you can’t blame him for doing all he can to avoid it. How many of those criticising KDC here on Kiwiblog would do differently if they were in his position?
Don’t forget, if KDC has any real political home it is probably with National. He did give money to John Banks and would probably be supporting National except he feels they (especially Banks and John Key) have betrayed him.
As for ACT, they won’t help him because they’re ideologically bound up over the mythical concept of “intellectual property rights”. These are a bit like the horns on unicorns. The horns don’t exist because there is no such thing as unicorns.
Property rights apply to material things, not concepts. (Leaving aside the more important issue of using NZ’s security services to try and enforce unworkable laws relating to such concepts. A complete abuse of govt. and a complete distortion of what that the GCSB was set up for)
All that said, the real problem here is the sickening fawning over John Key. By duping people with his “good bloke” persona he’s taken the National Party and NZ far into the left wing swamp. Far further than any National party or Labour Party has ever taken the country before.
John Key is the worst National Party leader ever and he’s taken the country far further left than its ever been. And we have people on here who identify as right wingers kissing his arse at every opportunity.
Key has seduced so many people into left wing bullshit. He is a disgrace as a Nats leader, and a tragedy as far as NZ’s political history goes.
I simply do get it sunshine! I’m 56, I’ve milked cows, raised calves, cut gorse and scrubbed out enough shitty sheds to know exactly what is involved in running a farm. My family’s trust owns over 2000 acres of some of the best farming land in this country – so please don’t be so condescending to think that you know it all about someone just because they don’t share the same opinion as you!
I may tutor uni students now, but I have worked since I was 11 years of age (a paper round) so don’t friggen tell me I don’t know what its like to earn and produce, or have mortgages etc. I’ve raised five kids, run my own businesses as well as reaching a high level of academic qualification.
So sunshine – tell me, what’s your ‘life’ experience that allows you to think you know it all about everyone and what students who are 20 to 49 years of age might have experienced or not?
“How many of those criticising KDC here on Kiwiblog would do differently if they were in his position?”
The simple fact is KDC is a threat to the spy technology agenda (GCSB) therefore the govt, courts, police will move to the utmost of their power with extreme prejudice to rid this man before he can ingrain himself and become a very wealthy and very substantial thorn in govts side including labours. Because the Nat/Lab coalition will never remove GCSB spying on NZ citizens.

I agree with your sentiments.
As I am constantly saying, I am appalled at the level current politics have dropped to in this country. To see a PM perform like a petulant child, smary and spiteful is a very sad look. Key almost never answers any question presented to him in the house with a fair and honest answer, instead all he can do is provide smart-arsed “you did this” answers – which may be funny to watch but are a shocking representation of what a leader should be.
He has reduced this country to a mess with his behaviour and standards, and in doing so has completely blurred the lines between left and right, leaving the electorate no choice but to vote on personalities not substance. Great if you’re picking someone for an Oscar but of F all use to the nation.
Jesus Judith, you’re probably coaching “media studies” students and you (and they) want the taxpayer to stump up extra money for their indulgence in gaining a useless qualification. Students are always greedy and want more “free stuff”, they love seeing politicians act magnanimous with other peoples money. Most of them probably wouldn’t tell you honestly how they would vote anyway as if they give the “wrong” answer they probably fear they would get disadvantaged in some way.
And sure, your “family trust” owns plenty and you have “scrubbed out filthy sheds”, whoopidy do, we’re so impressed, sunshine.
And just so you know, questions asked in the house are not intended to gain “a fair and honest answer”, any politician giving such would of course then get totally eviscerated by the media in a series of “gotchas” for doing something like that. You’re suffering the typical “golden age” syndrome, when was politics anything other than a silly dirty game, but one with real consequences especially for those without the power to influence same. The only real solution is to keep politics out of as much of life as is feasible, keep the crims and cons restricted as to what they can stuff up.
Viking2: FWIW I cannot see my way to supporting Banks in this case…especially given that he claims he can’t remember flying to the Dotcom mansion in a black helicopter and making a speech (of which there is a video record) at Dotcom’s hooley…
However…The Judge is perfectly correct. The New Zealand judiciary is more lenient with the media than the Brits, who don’t allow filming in Court at all…but they are determined not to become like the US where it is difficult to distinguish between real cases and some TV show…
The issue is not recording Banks doing something faintly disgusting, but rather TV3 ignoring what will have been strict rules made by the Judge as to what they can and cannot film…I hope he revokes their permission to film…
226 actions and petitions . 220 rejected found to totally without merit or frivilous as per courts either at first instance ,appellate or the US Supreme Court.
.Six stll pending as of 2012. The very lates rejected .
“…..John Key is the worst National Party leader ever and he’s taken the country far further left than its ever been. And we have people on here who identify as right wingers kissing his arse at every opportunity…..”
Yeah……none of the so-called right wingers seem to have a problem with the fact that Key hasn’t dared touch the 47% of public servants who were employed by Hulun. They are all still ‘working’.
The tax payers have had to foot that bill for over 8yrs now.
What topic at ‘University’ requires a ‘tutor’ to poll students as to their political preferences in detail. I can remember being asked to place myself on a continuum regarding political leanings but nothing so intrusive and indoctrinating as ‘Judith’ suggests.
It is beyond belief that a class of students should volunteer, what is usually a private matter to a ‘tutor’ with out prompting. Someone should complain that such ‘teaching’ is ultra vires!!!

From my understanding your discipline was Law?
It’s rather hard to avoid politics in political sciences my dear. The survey was conducted by a political science student in a research project they undertook in as part of a research design assignment. Would you suggest they instead counted the number of kittens the students owned – that would really be of assistance – not!
Nearly 30 years ago the French news media spoke about how Dominque Prieur had been stuck in a prison on an island 1000 kilometres south of Auckland.
Okay, we all know it was the Paparua Women’s Prison. On an island known as the South Island.
Well today National Socialist Radio report that Sky City handed John Banks a cheque for $15,000.
Turns out that what really happened was that “Sky City Management handed John Banks a sealed envelope. Inside the sealed envelope was a cheque for $15,000. Banksie handed the sealed envelope to his campaign treasurer.
A gentleman bought half a $106 item with me. Next week he handed me an envelope with the $53 in it. As he was a gentleman it would have been rude for me to open the envelope in front of him and count the cash. I just pocketed it.
Similarly, it would have been rude of John Banks to open the sealed envelope in front of Sky City management and examine the contents in every detail.
The insidious bias on that radio station is relentless.
Actually for research I would imagine that kittens would do as well, especially with such a small known sample, what was the sample? Actually, don’t answer that as you gaining information to disseminate is not part of the job description I imagine. Research should also permit anonymity and rights of refusal of participation.
Assistance as regards to what? Research is process/methodology focussed by my understanding, you say political science determined the subject, I say indoctrination by ‘tutors’ and/or lecturers that should be apolitical is necessary. I can not imagine you ‘tutoring’ in a partisan fashion, you being so ‘passionate’ in your beliefs. One would hope that your ‘tutoring’ style is different to the persona that you portray here. Students do not have much if any choice of tutor.
You just loved my kitten story didn’t you from TM, you have made reference a couple of times. I still think it was abuse of police powers to come and uplift a stray 4 week old moggy kitten that I had rescued, because I refused to return it on the say so of someone who had no proof of previous ownership and was clearly a neglectful owner, if it was the same kitten. The flatmate of said ‘owner’ was related to the policeman, might one add. Poor little thing.

So you believe a survey of kittens would produce results in a small political survey? WOW !
Regarding the rest of your implied burble – the students were instructed to submit a research report based on a mix of quantitative and qualitative data collected from a project of their own design. There was no indoctrination by tutors or anyone else regarding the topic/s. The project undertaken was entirely of their own choice, and they, of course, received marks based on whether they adhered to the remit which was regarding the design of the project, not the results of their surveys or the implications of such. The topic of the research was determined by their particular discipline and their personal interests.
Nice of you to go over some of the facets of research – I’m not sure why you would bother as my statement regarding the findings neither identified the participants/researcher or the institution involved. If you are trying to shit stir – you’ve failed – as usual.

No, you are trying to shit stir – lets not pretend it is anything but!
As an academic (I presume) you should know that any such things can be shared providing there are no identifiers. As you know neither my name, my employer, the names of the students, the title of the paper, the names of the participants, the institution, the dates of the research etc, I’m afraid your whinging and attention is wasted.
PS If you had read the entire thread you SHOULD have noticed I posted in reply to someone else who had shared information from people they had met – have you bothered to ask them if they had permissions etc? No – because you prefer to use your shit stirring only on one or two people. – Pathetic! You’re a waste of time and oxygen.
The Auckland Council has money for the Parnell cathedral and Lopdell House in Titirangi but no money to upgrade marae, says Independent Maori Statutory Board member John Tamihere.
His comments came during a debate on a report which found the council had made a strong commitment to lift the lot of Maori but spent very little money on doing so.
The finance and performance committee last week accepted the report prepared by KPMG for the Independent Maori Statutory Board, which has been frustrated at the lack of financial support by the council for Maori outcomes.
The report said there had been “very low levels of expenditure on Maori outcomes” over an 18-month period.
Mr Tamihere criticised the “tyranny of the majority around the council table” for funding projects like Parnell cathedral while ignoring spending on marae.
Board chairman David Taipari added community housing on Maori land and developing a significant annual Maori event in Auckland to the list of shortfalls.
Now excuse my ignorance but as these places are privately owned property why the fuck should ratepayers or taxpayers front money for and if these projects.
Its gets worse.
Tonight I hard the PM in his best mnoey mans voice telling us the the Govt. (yeh the Govt.) was investing x millions in this project or that. Notably drug rehab and the police dept. to fund their lavish travesties chasing dope growers.
Please could someone tell Mr Key the meaning of investing. Clearly he doesn’t know the difference between investing, spending and wasting money.
No wonder the taxpayer is screwed.
golden: A little hint for those who fancy themselves as bush lawyers – and worse, think they understand Latin phrases…”Ultra vires” means “outside the powers; not permitted by law”…While I am no fan of “Judith”, her attempts to sound impressively academic may be a number of things…ultra vires they are not…
Actually David, I do not think Judith’s citing students work (unattributed) is inside the powers of a ‘tutor’ of an institution on a ‘public’ blog, there is no methodology at all, more likely just her opinion, supposing that the position is even held…’is beyond the legal power or authority of a person, institution or legislation, and therefore invalid.

Quite so and now his lady has joined him in the forgetful stakes. The facial expressions and body language of both in Court are interesting. He looks like he already knows he is off to the can and she looks about as happy as a pork pie in a synagogue.
Rather telling I think. Banks has been a bully forever (like so many little people.) His time on radio was nothing else but bullying to callers.
Karma at play.
Doesn’t appear from what I’ve seen that TV3 broke any rules other than not being nice, (like Banks used to be on Air.), but the Judge banned them anyway, even after they groveled on their bellies and apologized for being nasty.
I see also that JB is holding him up which surprises me a little and now some wanna be Nat. MP has put his hand up in an attempt to slander DC. Wonder why he bothers because the case is about the deed not about what someone else said at a barbecue. Either he knew, which seems very apparent to most people, or he didn’t according to him when he signed the doco’s.
Clearly he did or he would be smiling and laughing which he isn’t.
Not really sure why he wanted to keep all these secrets.
Viking: I haven’t seen the Order the Judge made in the first instance, but it will likely have been that they can only show the defendant when he is in the witness box either listening to or responding to questions. There may well have been a specific prohibition on showing the defendant – or anyone else – yawning, scratching themselves etc.etc…..TV 3 decided to get smart, and they got flicked…excellent…

Judith, you need to have a very, very, VERY SOUND understanding of probability theory and other mathmatical concepts to design a research project like that. Just ask ANY statician.
…..on whether they adhered to the remit which was regarding the design of the project, not the results of their surveys or the implications of such……
That then means that you are grading them on the process that they took – which is then almost entirely mathematical – or without the emphisis being on maths it would then be rather useless to say the least.

Have a problem with that statement ?
Then give an example where muslim immigrants have immigrated to any western country successfully ?
We can accept the stone age principles of islam or we can reject them.
What we now call Turkey is a great example of Muslim immigration. It used to be Greek.They’ve been wiped out, so were the Armenians.

1. These were undergrads, in their first research exercise, we don’t expect too much from them. You are right though, for a postgrad or researcher they would need a high level of statistical expertise to provide a precise indication of voter choice, but that was not what they were being tested on. The purpose of the exercise was to allow them to explore and understand how both quantitative and qualitative data can be utilized within the same research project. In the case in question, the survey was quantitative and subsequent interviews with a sample of participants regarding their choices, producing qualitative data. The strength of the data etc was not important – the exercise was simply to ensure the student understood the differences between the two types of research and could demonstrate how/when/why they could/would be used.
2. The process was not allowed to be entirely quantitative (mathematical). They had to demonstrate how qualitative data could be collected and used as well. The qualitative aspect is pertinent. The results I mentioned were only from one student – their qualitative aspect included a narrative analysis dealing with changes in the participants voting habits in relation to alterations in lifestyle such as aging, employment, study, marriage etc.
3. I have never been a social worker as such. But I have worked with Offenders and in the Courts. I have also been a policy analyst for both private and central and local government. I have volunteered with Victim Support for a few years as well. Having got sick of working with the negative aspects of society, I decided a few years back to work in an area where the ‘clients’ actually wanted to be there – and later changed to my current vocation, which also leads to more contract work.
Don’t forget the women Red. What’s that – is that about five posts ? Why don’t we do brunch Russ – it’s always better to hear these things in person so they say . . . brunch is on me. Well – it’s still on you. But not as much on you as it would be if you were paying.

We can add that little lie to the others, let me refresh your memory.
1. You said you will never come back to Kiwiblog, you have said that at least twice. Yet here you are again.
2. You have claimed that you have had many “victories” in your ten year plus war against the left. Of course you have never been able to name even one of those “victories”
3. You claimed that you would never link whore. On numerous occasions you link whore on Kiwiblog.
Dime: No-one – even a half man like me – can ignore being called a child molester…Whether he sobered up or not, you have to respect a man who apologises for – as he himself said – making a fool of himself.
dad: for a moment I wondered what on earth you were talking about…”identity issues”…then I realised you were being “funny” about my foolishness from 30 years ago….you’re a card Dad, no doubt about it….so if you have no identity issues, please do share your identity with us…
How, in your minds does calling a fellow correspondent a faggot etc. advance your argument girls ?
Na, na, na nah nah nah !
Actually, dime @ 8.06 made sense.
You losers should put a line under all the ludicrous puke you have posted so far today and start again.
Read what you losers have posted since 7.30. pathetic, cringeworthy, an insult to this blogsite.
An amoral loser who cares not one jot that he bludges off every worker in NZ and without a skerrick of shame takes from them the money they need for their families.
Hey look – it’s Shane Jones puff hard logic. If I get a job – families will get back money that I was stealing from them. My employment is going to lift living standards across the nation . . . don’t spend it all in one place now.
Well – if it’s the principle that counts – I’ll volunteer my time and take a few hours of paid work away from people with jobs and families to support. I’m sure they’ll love that.
“Hey look – it’s Shane Jones puff hard logic. If I get a job – families will get back money that I was stealing from them. My employment is going to lift living standards across the nation . . . don’t spend it all in one place now.”
you alone? nope. BUT if we stopped allowing peeps like you to scam the bene, a nice big juicy tax cut for dime awaits.
with 150,000 or so thinking like you, our country is held back big time. not cool.
whats wrong with working at maccas? hit on the school girls after 3! “you suit that hat” haha youre away!
This is the man who “explained” to me that the internet is this unique forum where – unlike Letters to the Editor – anonymous dickheads were to be taken just as seriously as those who signed their names…You really are slipping Russell…You used to be much more consistent…
I know you have this thing about pseudonyms David. Can I say it’s a little ironic given your ancient history? I think Kiwiblog would be non-existent if DPF required everyone to post under their real names.
dime – bad example. All those beeping machines ? I would start smashing them up after about two minutes. I can’t go into a McLosers or anywhere that has machines going off like ten relentless alarm clocks. Stuff that !!
Don’t make me look at fat ugly dumbarse rude badly dressed people for a whole shift.
Bad example – bad. Really really bad. You know it’s bad, it’s bad – you know it. Rea-lly bad. And the whole world has to answer right back to tell you once again – who’s bad ?
Mikey: I usually find your comments reasonably sensible….are you seriously suggesting that because I obtained a false passport that I never used 30 years ago I should somehow be precluded from denigrating pseuds now??
Red: Last night the man who now reveals himself as Paul Scott – and all credit to him for fronting – called me a paedophile…so are you saying that in some circumstances (the “dirty lie” you refer to) anonymity is OK, but not in others??
Mate, you really need to come to grips with your sexuality. In times past (before you got yourself banned, the last occasion being somewhat of a record for taking the least possible time) you were endlessly banging on about gays and peoples sexuality.
I suspect that you have hidden issues or desires D4J, don’t be afraid though, you can safely come out of the closet these days, I am sure that the world is ready for a regularly locked up demolition worker to be an openly gay man.
“…..I for one am glad to be gainfully employed by my fellow taxpayers….”
Comment…..comment….comment…….every fucken day.
As I’ve said before – National doesn’t dare touch the extra 47% of public servants that Hulun employed. The taxpayer is stuck paying for that under the socialist National Govt. National fucken love Big Government.
No sweat dad. Tell us the facts when you can. Hope you never had to get your job over here in Wainui on the say so of that Fenian apologist milkey. Put in a good word for me when I pop along to the office to apply for my gold card old chap!
