Hide on Internet Mana

I used to think politics was all about achieving good government. That proved invariably disappointing. These days, politics is no longer my responsibility. I’m happy if it just proves interesting.

That’s why I am for the Internet-Mana Party. They’re the best entertainment in years. If they were a parody they would be too improbable to be believed.

Maori nationalist Hone Harawira calls Pakeha the rudest of names and the wrong colour to date his daughter. But he’s jumped into bed with whiter-than-white Kim Dotcom.

Harawira trumpets Mana and His People but that’s not stopping him using his electorate to coat-tail Dotcom’s party into Parliament. His price? $3 million.

It’s easy to accuse Harawira of hypocrisy but he has a ready reply: it’s a lot of money. At $3m his double standard is good and high.

Laila Harre wasn’t elected leader of the Internet Party. She was hired. She’s been selected and paid for by Dotcom. The former coffee picker for the Sandinistas is New Zealand’s first corporate-hire political leader.

That’s a nice line. If you pay her enough, she’ll lead your political party for you.

She also believes Dotcom is funding her to help the poor and downtrodden with 1970s socialism. It’s nothing to do with his extradition to face criminal charges. The left don’t talk about truth. Rather, it’s the narrative. Harre is the only person buying her narrative.

I wonder if deep down they really believe their bullshit and think Dotcom’s $4 million donation is nothing to do with his extradition case.

Can you imagine the chaos. A Labour/Green/NZ First/Mana/Internet Government who only got there because of Dotcom’s money.  The Judge decides he should be extradited. He’ll be calling everyone from the PM to the Minister of Justice demanding they not extradite him or else.
