    That’s a pretty bad indictment. The sign means Cunliffe’s gaffe has permeated through the very thick hide of New Zealand social consciousness. Labour is so doomed. September 21 is going to be a great day for NZ especially if National have partners in ACT & Conservative

    Let’s hope this marks a turning point from this extremist nonsense surrounding domestic violence and sexual offending — ie, apologies for being a man, baseless allegations that New Zealand has a “rape culture” following the activities (or I should more correctly say “alleged”) activities of some young scrotes, and now the victim of the Malaysian diplomat blaming Key and McCully, demanding resignations, and claiming that sexual assault is widespread in New Zealand and no one in government takes it seriously. With respect to the last, apparently Key looked “bored” at the press meeting when he was asked about the diplomat, and according to the victim this is clear evidence of her stance. Of course, the media reported it as facts — it seems that feelings without hard evidence are facts. But I digress, domestic violence and sexual offending needs to be addressed in a sensible, and should not be used as a political soapbox by the left.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 23 You need to be logged in to vote

    Tawa Man (having observed many from close up) is about the closest you will get to Waitakere Man in a Wellington sense.

    The level of public servants, teachers, administrators and tradies is comparatively high, meaning labour should should have a natural support base in the suburb. But it is also socially conservative (more churches per head of population than anywhere else in NZ), and has a real bloke culture. Yogi remembers a night as a guest at the cricket clubrooms which descended into a full on fight between two brothers hurling full pints and jugs of beer at one another (not just the drink, the glass was included).

    If Labour has lost Tawa Man, then even its Wellington electorate strongholds (leaving aside the fact Tawa itself is in Ohariu-Belmont) must be looking shaky.

    I’ve never understood why organisations like Women’s Refuge don’t engage more with men. I for one would support them in any way, shape or form I could (and have by dropping off clothing my partner no longer needs), but they don’t seem to engage with men at all. 99.99% of the country supports them (or organisations like them), not 50%.

    That’s why I hate Cunliffe’s stunt so much – it suggests it’s men vs women, and he’s the only man in the country (or the world, by extension?) who is anti domestic violence. Shallow and desperate.

    Wow, have you had a road to Damascus moment? I never thought I’d see you calling the Labour party “whinging bitches”.

    If I understand Christianity correctly, Jesus was selflessly crucified so that his dad would forgive everyone for their sins. Similarly, Cunliffe has apologised on behalf of all men and we are now collectively forgiven for any and all sins we’ve committed against women. Just as Jesus was mocked by the people who captured and crucified him, we’re mocking Cunliffe with “toot” signs in Tawa. It may be hundreds of years before Cunliffe is treated with the same religious relevance as Jesus, but I think it is inevitable that he will eventually be treated as some sort of prophet and maybe a future Pope will grant him sainthood.

    RightNow… This is what I’m talking about. God has sent David Cunliffe from heaven to apologise for the sins of half of humanity, and all you can do is take the piss. If Andrew Lloyd Webber writes a musical called David Cunliffe Superstar, based on the life of the great NZ prophet, then he will depict you as an updated King Herod… sneering and mocking Cunliffe while you dance around the stage like a jester.

    Repent now and hope that Cunliffe forgives you!

    This is an appalling crime.

    David Cunliffe had really better apologize for this and other violent crime.

    Yogi – Tawa has a reputation as bankers alley, so not exactly Labour territory. Its excellent college and primary schools are also well noted and the direct rail service to Wellington keeps property prices higher than other suburbs. Plus lots of houses have pool rooms with bars as a result of Tawa being dry until just a few years ago. Don’t mention Bell and Tremewan Streets though.

    And you can only be called a true Tawa Man in the 80s and 90s if you knew Aron the Woolworths trolley boy!

    Will the next poll plunge Labour below 20%
