Laila and Kim upset with Cunliffe

July 8th, 2014 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Labour leader David Cunliffe is “premature” to rule out ministerial spots for Internet Party leader and Mana leader Hone Harawira, Ms Harre said yesterday.

Her comments come after Internet Party founder took to Twitter to mock Mr Cunliffe over his statements at Labour’s election year Congress at the weekend.

The thought that Kim won’t want any Ministers for his pet party, in return for helping make Cunliffe Prime Minister is laughable. This is a guy who decided to destroy John Banks because Banks wouldn’t help him get a pillow in jail.

Dotcom mocked Cunliffe’s statement, because he knows there will be a price to pay for his support.

Is it any coincidence that Dotcom’s lawyers have managed to have his extradition hearing delayed again – until February 2015. So any decision, if a court finds he is eligible for extradition, would be made by a Government propped up by his pet party.

    I talked to a socialist who is abstaining from voting because he can see that there is no stability with a leftist coalition.

    If I’d given Banks fifty grand, I’d be pissed off about that too.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 11 Thumb down 16 You need to be logged in to vote

    M Baiter,

    Should people be allowed to buy themselves more comfortable circumstances in prison?

    Dotcom will want Laila Harre as Justice Minister, because after all she has a law degree.

    Coincidentally, one of her jobs as Justice Minister would be to decide on Dotcom’s extradition.

    Why would he need a pillow?

    He’s got several built-in ones.

    No Liala you WILL NOT get a seat at the head trough… WHY you ask?

    Because even though 27% (give or take) of the country are nuts enough to support Liabore they can still see right though YOU and know what a sort of a person you really are, by supporting your nice German overlord you have shown that you have NO scruples what so ever… MONEY TALKS.

    Even Sue Bradford had the guts to stick to her convictions (sheesh I can’t believe I said that).

    So when it comes down to it you are exactly where you should be, no where with no chance.

    Yes that is right Unity. John Key has a lot of political capital and he could have used it to persuade people to ask for some changes to our electoral system in the recent referendum.

    He remained as quiet as a mouse.

    Idypen,

    If Mana-Internet’s two seats are the difference between forming a government and not forming one, Labour will form a govt with them.

    For the national interest, of course.

    That referendum was combined with a very close election. Key did not recommend change because he was afraid it would make him look power hungry.

    Hear hear!

    I never thought I would see the day when the mainstream left reached such a low ebb, that the integrity of Sue Bradford would start to look like a shining light by comparison.

    The older I get the less of the left’s ideas I like, but lately it is their lack of any kind of basic professionalism that really grates. These people are children.

    Banks long hammered listeners of Radio Pacific on his own Christian beliefs and how he saw everything he commented on in view of those.
    So there is Matthew 25:36 –
    Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
    But that now needs rewriting –
    I was sick with excruciating back pain: I was in prison and requested a mattress more suited to my condition. I had paid you 50,000 shekels but you did not help me at all.
    So I was a little miffedeth.

    In Cunliffe speak highly unlikely means abso-bloody-lutely if needed.
    I’m embarrassed to be a man means Can I con you into voting for me?
    2000 more teachers means hoping that 2000 currently unemployed teachers are as yet undiscovered teaching superstars.
    I note in his conference speech a succession of lies. For example
    285,000 children in poverty, (poverty???? where? as noted above if Bill Gates came to stay then the number of children in ‘poverty’ would double!!!!!)
    42,000 more Kiwis out of a job since National took office, (more people in employment than at any time in history.)
    46% of Kiwis haven’t had a pay rise in a year – and I’ve met some who haven’t had a pay rise since the last time Labour was in government. (wages have risen by 3.2%)
    Median incomes are going backwards after inflation in 13 out of 16 regions since 2008, because regional New Zealand is ignored.(Inflation 1.8 Wages up 3.2)
    One in three women will suffer domestic violence, and 20,000 mums and kids needed refuge shelters last year. It’s disgraceful and it has to stop. (arguing with someone is not domestic violence)

    Davy and the GIMPS would be the most dangerous government in living memory and Crim Dot Con escaping justice would be the first price. Mining, fishing, the oil industry and irrigation would cease. West Coasters extracting millions of dollars of windblown timber would be unemployed to allow the wood to simply rot for the next 200 years.
    For the sake of the country, vote positively and PARTY VOTE NATIONAL

    The last interview I heard with Harre on Radio NZ yesterday morning was that they were committed to ‘changing the government’ and outright confirmed that they would not entertain a coalition with a National government. When directly asked whether they would support a Labour coalition without any cabinet positions, she was more coy – blah blah we’ll wait to see what the voters of NZ say on election day etc etc. Even when rephrased several different ways by Espiner she refused to be drawn further. I think she realises that they’ll be out in the cold but is desperately trying to hold onto what few bargaining chips they have left after point blank refusing to deal with a centre-right coalition.

    That’s conjecture.

    We don’t actually know why Dotcom turned against Banks.

    Gump – what is your point?
    Dotcom contacted Banks with a specific request: medical based relief
    He was ignored after having given Banks $50,000.
    Simple, as to why he may be ever so slightly pissed off.

    My point is that DPF is connecting dots without corroborating information and asserting conjecture as fact.

    We don’t actually know why Dotcom turned against Banks. There may well be other reasons that have never been disclosed.

    Cunliffe is all bluff and bluster – If the IMParty brought in MPs and it was the difference between Government or opposition for labour, and they demanded the Minister of ICT (example) then he would do it.

    Just like John key would do the same.
