Poor Clayton suffering from a bad case of short man’s disease and nightmares from when he was bullied at St Bede’s. Just another Liarbore mental head case.
Are you seriously using the first comment on this thread to denigrate someone’s mental health?
Clayton Cosgrove is a disgrace. This was a calculated attack on Nick Smith during what was a relatively straightforward debate. That no one from Labour told Cosgrove to pull his head in is symptomatic of just how dysfunctional the party is at the moment.
And as an added irony, there is bleating from the Left today about Michelle Hewitson’s comments about Laila Harre and stress. They can’t have it both ways.
Interestingly, I got this tweet last night from Green MP Kevin Hague:
Kevin Hague @KevinHague 20h
@Inventory2 have just seen your blog comments on Cosgrove. I agree that comment was appalling, but wasn’t in the House, so didn’t hear it
As you will see from my post that DPF linked to, Hague also criticised Cosgrove in the past for his homophobic “Tinkerbell” interjections on Christopher Finlayson. I don’t usually have a lot of time for Green MP’s but kudos to Kevin Hague for drawing a line between what is acceptable conduct in Parliament, and what is inexcusable.
Against the backdrop of Sir John Kirwan’s rather special efforts at assisting Joe Average and his missus cope and deal with Depressive mental illness, that little jerk needs to be placed in stocks for such appalling attitudes.
I have just discovered an old acquaintance in his senior years has fallen to this illness in a very severe and spectacular way. His battle is very sobering and makes the actions of that folicly challenged little arsehole so much more contemptible.
If those who choose to allow it to pass unchallenged, a plague on your house.
Perhaps, wishful thinking I know, Karma is involved already.
I often find that at times like this the best weapon one can have is a long memory.
It works well because sometime in the not to distant future Mr Cosgrove will be leaving the house, he may choose to do it by not standing again as a candidate (not the favoured option of a Labour trougher) or he may lose his seat.
When that happens he will no doubt have some nice words said about him by those in the media or in the house, this is when a long memory becomes a rare gift. Use that long memory to piss all over the political grave of Cosgrove, remind all and sundry just what a nasty and vindictive loser he was and how the house will be far better off for his departure.
Come to think of it, September 21 might be a day to start rekindling that memory, not just for Mr Cosgrove but for other Labour losers as well.
“I don’t usually have a lot of time for Green MP’s but kudos to Kevin Hague for drawing a line between what is acceptable conduct in Parliament, and what is inexcusable.”
I think you’re a bit too generous with your praise. Hague was quite happy to describe those who opposed his Marriage Redefinition legislation as “homophobic”, which has in its root language the implication that one is suffering from a phobia, or a symptom of insanity.
I think he’s just another left wing hypocrite, who is one thing when it suits him, and another thing when it suits him another way.
Cosgrove was, during my time, by far the nastiest piece of work in the House. I heard the prick make similar comments about Nick Smith on a couple of occasions and tried to raise points of order about them…I quickly learned you cant do that; only the person who the vicious comment is aimed at can take objection to it (which I suppose make sense) and Smith has obviously made the decision not to rise to the bait.
So I contented myself with loudly suggesting Cosgrove make similar remarks outside the House…of course he never did…I encountered the POS only once post Parliament…I commented him on his hair…when he realised who I was the colour drained from his face (He once claimed to be scared of me “stepping him out”)… Face to face of course, he didn’t make a peep.
Find the equivalent of Clayton Cosgrove in the National Party ranks.
Face it. Your side is a haven for crooks and scumbags. And they are all playing you for saps. They know they don’t have to act like decent human beings to get your vote. They know they will always get your support as long as they pander to your prejudices.
You will accept anyone and forgive anything as long as they keep telling you that rich people are evil, “right wingers” are just greedy, the economy is actually really quite easy to manage, and your “caring” would save the world if only THEY didnt stop it from happening.
