Laila Harré – harden up.
And welcome back to politics. It hasn’t changed.
So, the Prime Minister said you’re backed by a sugar daddy – Kim Dotcom. So what? Many people will actually agree with him. It’s not really wrong. Is it?
To take offence is to be far too thin-skinned. Harden up, shake it off, but – best of all – just ignore it.
The truth is the Mana-Internet Party is backed by a German billionaire on the run from the authorities. It is what it is: he’s paying you and he’s paying for the party to exist. If he goes, the party goes.
Harre is playing the sexism card. Yawn.
Incidentially Your Dictionary says a definition of sugar daddy is:
A wealthy male benefactor to a charity or other cause
Sounds a very apt definition. Mirriam Webster also define it as:
a generous benefactor of a cause or undertaking
Laila is getting paid a full-time generous salary to campaign on behalf of Kim Dotcom. She shouldn’t complain when people point this out.
