Open letter to the Prime Minister
Hey love, look I realize you’re pretty busy at the moment, but I just thought I’d drop you a line ‘cause I’m a wee bit concerned about the Poll in today’s Herald. NATIONAL LEAD BY 7.7%! Girlfriend I haven’t always backed your call, let’s see, the Ahmed Zaoui farce, the Foreshore and Seabed confiscation via legislation, getting my mate Tim thrown in prison for Sedition, doing piss all for the people on the very bottom of the system to name but a few, but I was proud how you didn’t get us involved in Iraq, your criticisim of Israel, Civil Unions, decriminilisation of Prostitution, and you have by and by made things a little better than when you started – but Helen you are slipping here. As much as I disagree with some of the things you’ve done, you are A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER than Don and his idiot National Party. I honestly believe if they get into power and do the things they say they will do to Maori (dump Maori education quotas, dump Maori seats) and cuddle up to America (letting in nuclear ships, and let’s not forget National with ACT wanted us to join in the Iraq war), and the destruction of the Unions – I fear real civil strife on the streets of this country the likes of which we have never seen before.
You can’t let National win, and by keeping hold of Field you are poisoning New Zealanders against you – we HATE corruption with a pathological fervor, and you only feed that by letting this clown stay in his job. I appreciate it would be a ‘process’ getting rid of him, but better now than allow it to remain septic. And as for the money you overspent for the election – look of course I understand that Governments have always fiddled the way they spend public money, and yes Chris Trotter made some bloody good points in the weekend paper about how justified you were to take the cash because allowing National to win with their dirty exclusive brethren cash wasn’t an option, but you really do have to move on that with new procedures on party funding so as to take some of the sting out of this issue.
Appreciate you are busy, but could you try a little harder, I really don’t want to have to take up arms against my fellow NZers if National win.
Say hi to the hubby
