National led by ACT while Maori get told where to sit on the bus
Henare sticks to buffoon remarks
Tau Henare is refusing to apologise for labelling coalition ally Rodney Hide a "buffoon" and a "jerk-off" as tensions escalate over the Government's Auckland super-city plans. Prime Minister John Key issued only a mild rebuke to his errant MP a sign that Mr Hide's brinkmanship over the super-city proposal has ruffled feathers. Mr Key ruled out asking Mr Henare to apologise to Mr Hide and said he was parking it "as a minor backbench issue", though the comments were "unhelpful".
How are you, you big beautiful city you! I know a few if you got into that whole ‘change’ crap that National floated last year, and like good buggers at a beach cricket match, you asked Helen to hand the bat over after she had her 3 terms, and a large chunk of you didn’t even bother to vote. I understand, it all got a bit grotty last year with the right targeting Winston and Winston getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar (even though when it comes to donations from big business National own the kitchen). It all seemed yuck and that fresh faced aspirational multi-millionaire moderate PM looked like a great catch.
That was then, this is now. John isn’t the moderate he’s pretended to be, he is hard right and he’s led now by Rodney Hide from ACT, a political party that only got 4 votes in every hundred. ACT and National annexed Auckland by misusing urgency in Parliament meaning they rammed it through with zero consultation, and Rodney got to run Auckland with his handpicked 5 mates. Rodney threatens to resign if he didn’t get to denigrate Maori, and because John is Rodney’s girlfriend, the Nats backed ACT.
If you are Maori and you voted for the Maori Party and you are now being told where to sit on the bus by John and Rodney in your own city of Auckland, this must be a deeply disillusioned day. Where is the leadership from the Maori Party? You can’t be friends with National, hell have you seen any of the anonymous National posters on this site, they loath and hate you, sitting at their table hoping for some crumbs isn’t Mana enhancing, the Maori Party needs to walk away from National and hopefully it’s leadership will give the Greens the courage to walk away from their cosy little snuggle with National as well.
To Aucklanders, look at the manner in which National and ACT stole your city and imposed their racist point of view, Auckland you are the most cosmopolitan of NZs city’s, you like being a bit special, you enjoy being educated and progressive, having ACT and their poodle National molest your beautiful city for their own privatization aims must make many sweet Aucklanders choke on their soy lattes.
2011 counts Auckland, many of you didn’t vote last time and no matter how pretty Nikki Kaye is, her party and their racist, racist ways are an abomination that deserves no representation within our city limits.
Oh and wasn’t Henare on the mark calling Rodney a buffoon and Jerk off, now Tau has to be brave and refer to his PM as Rodney’s poodle.
