Who'd be a Leftie?

To further encourage Idiot, I note things are on the up and up in Iraq. Radio Left Wing News now reports car bomb explosions which failed to inflict deaths. Soon they will be reporting the traffic lights turned from green to red and cars actually stopped.

How dreary must it be for Lefties nowadays. They have endured an unrelenting series of incoming salvoes, hitting amidships and close to the waterline. The US election and the demolition of the Dopey Dems along with their truly bizarre film and media fellow travellers; the Aussie election and the tired return of the most experienced and worn out ALP loser in history; the spectacular success of American foreign policy in the Middle East; the economic and social decline of socialist Western Europe, the collapse of their darling UN and the resultant depression besetting hero Kofi. Of course, poor old Kofi’s affliction points to the desperate need for a replacement sourced from a suitably insignificant and redundant regime. Tailor made for a just defeated despot from a South Pacific basket case economy, which we will be by the time an election gets here.

I think the dye is cast for NZ. We are well into the early stages of a “firm correction.” Trading Banks know it’s already here so they are warning home buyers to wait a year for “prices to drop ten percent.” For the first time in ten years, “house for rent” signs can be seen all over the North Shore. Dr Bollard badly misjudged the last interest rate rise and confidence on the part of businesses and workers has gone. Both are heading across the ditch as fast as they can go. Farmers and other exporters have been hit with a double whammy of increased interest rates and a rising currency at a time when the next down turn in international commodity prices must be very close. Low unemployment figures are a mirage created by transferring unemployed and unemployable people to Wananga courses and/or invalid benefits.

The domestic chickens are coming home to roost for Labour and they will be defeated by the stench of their own dishonesty.

Internationally, oil prices are heading inexorably for US$100 per barrel; western economies are besotted with growth in China and seem to be relying on it continuing. What if it does not? Who knows what the Chinese regime will do next? They have a track record of volatility. How many of the youthful economic optimists who call themselves policy analysts actually remember what happened when the Asian Giant had a hernia and collapsed a decade or so ago?

The crocodile tears will flow when the BB delivers her colleagues to the opposition benches in a few months time. Of course, she won’t be there in their hour of need.

Will there be enough grief counsellors to care for all the lefties? I doubt it.

Yep, Labour has finally done themselves in. Clark and co thought a good PR machine was all they needed, but this time they've done irrepairable damage to Labours reputation.

Surely any forward thinking person knows that liberal economics and social policies are the way forward, and socialism is the great loser of the ideological war. Labour will not be attracting the fresh thinkers coming through.

I'm finding it hilarious that the lefties are annoyed with Labour too!

lucyna, yes it is fascinating. There will belife in the campaign after all. One of the more encouraging comments I heard recently was from a pretty much dyed in the wool labour supporter who was bemoaning the fact that Helen is more and more resembling Muldoon in his final years. I guess he was referring to attitudes and actions. Good to see the Herald at last using non airbrushed photos. My my, how quickly she has aged.
