Tiso, it would be fair to say, is exasperated with the state of left wing politics in this country. Perhaps “exasperation” is too mild a description but I can well imagine him often thinking why on earth “we still have to fight this bullshit”.He was recently fighting this bullshit on Twitter.Tiso made a reasonable request of Green Party co-Metiria Turei. He tweeted to her: “Could we kindly stop emotionally blackmailing left wing critics of Labour by pleading that people are hurting and need a change of government?’The response from Turei was appalling. She wrote: “I’m going to ask all of us to band together to fight the real enemy – National. And its because of the 15 kids who will die this winter.”The implication of this comment, displaying both arrogance and insensitivity in equal measure, is that if you are not part of Turei’s gang to put her and her parliamentary chums into government, then you are condemning children to death. It is little wonder that Tiso described this comment as “obscene”.He also tweeted: “Our politics simply cannot reduce itself to “Vote for us, we promise to kill 15 fewer children than our opponents.” It just can’t.”
So if you vote for Metiria to be Deputy PM, 15 fewer children will die. Which means if you do not vote Greens, you are voting to kill babies. Shame shame on you.
