The photo tag says that the photo was taken in Parnell. I’m surprised that they didn’t use public transport. The reason Auckland needs more and wider motorways is: 1. To allow Greens to drive to KFC. 2. So that Auckland council workers can speed around town in their council-only buses, rather than have to use the train. 3. So that Len Brown’s chauffeur-driven council car can follow him down the motorway on the odd occasion he takes the train. 4. So that Green spokesperson Robyn Malcolm can drive herself home after an evening out drinking.
My long term toy car goal is to have two matching Triumphs – one perfectly restored and completely original, and the other re-powered with a Honda Euro Accord engine, S2000 gearbox and a Silvia back axle. People are making 400kw + from sleeved K24s with about 10psi of boost. Best little engines in the world. Should get a rise out of eco-warriors and V8 heads at the same time. When the project is complete I’ll send in a photo of me eating KFC in it at the end of a long strip of rubber..
YesWeDid>So let me get this right, spending 2 hours visiting a company in China is in no way endorsing that company
Are you talking about Rick Barker who flew right across China to visit a cement factory belonging to a person he’d never really met, who’d never donated money to the Labour Party, and who’d given thousands of bucks to Barker’s daughter’s rowing club only by chance? Because if you are, I think Barker has explained that he’d always wanted to visit a cement factory, and the one just a few kilometers down the road from this Hastings electorate was far FAR too remote to visit.
But… I love the way that the Left and their supporters want to keep the Liu issue in the public eye. If I were Cunliffe I’d want to put it all behind me, but the Left just want to keep re-litigating the issues.
Agreed Yeswedid.The spurious assertions impliedby the parked Mazda beggars belief.it amounts to a crude propaganda ploy that is childish , an infantile form of name calling.
It does no credit to KB in publishing the remark and will certainly make no difference to the Greens support base that appears to be growing at the moment.
Who cares anyway.!
PS .Yes it days raise issues about those visits to that company in china.
“The photo tag says that the photo was taken in Parnell.”
It’s nowhere near Parnell. The picture shows the KFC which is near the intersection of Dominion Rd and Balmoral Rd (which is on the other side of town from Parnell).
What’s funny about this picture is that the Green Party vehicle isn’t even parked in the KFC carpark. It’s parked on Dunbar St in an on-street carpark. Here’s a link to Google Street-view showing where it was parked.
Viking- The trouble seems to be that a lot of National people can’t see the distinction between govt and a privately managed entity. A shame really, because its in the party’s founding principles-
“to encourage private enterprise; to safeguard individual rights and the privilege of ownership; to oppose interference by the State in business, and State control of industry”.
IOW, govts should be small and unnoticeable, but when they penalise you for driving a car of your choice, or force the management of private schools to accept a court’s interpretation of their own rules via some liberal/ progressive judge, they’re doing exactly what their principles tell them they shouldn’t do.
Yep, definitely the KFC in Balmoral, that car park is at the hall I think, over the road from the KFC.
But it’s nice framing; given the Greens (and other leftoids) penchant for making such nebulous associations a point of accusation, it’s a clear case of what’s sauce for the goose…
I think it’s sorta funny, and it does show that the non-left community is wising up a little to the tricks and techniques of the left and is replying in kind. With luck it will undermine the whole point of these “guilt by association” campaigns.
I’m not familiar with Auckland. But even I know that Dominion Road is a major bus route. So my question remains… Why don’t the Greens take the bus that they think the rest of us should use?
It gets better the above dipshit davidp might think god im thick and stupid the green office person might have meetings all over but fuck lets rant on kiwiblog,hell wanking and ranting is how the right exist.
I was at the Otara Market yesterday morning and saw a tee shirt I should have bought.
It was a KFC tee shirt with a picture of Colonel Sanders with fuzzy black hair and a darkened face.
Underneath the picture it had the slogan;
“Kai For Cuzzies”
And you people wondered what KFC stood for?

Or probably more likely where the poster was when she submitted the photo. Sitting in a swanky Jaffa cafe sipping mochas while screaming OMG!, look at my Gucci watch, will you? OMG! with her friends. If it’s a piss-take by the lady/DPF then it’s funny. But the comments attached to it by the two of them suggest they think they’re really serious… … ….
