Wee Willy Winston

It took about thirty seconds for an aggressive Sean Plunket to debunk the Tailor's Dummy this morning, just after 0700. Peters reminded me of the forth form Lothario who loudly skited to his mates about the size of his dick, only to have the truth revealed when it came time for the first 'after match' shower.

In a desperate attempt to hit the airwaves, the tailor's dummy yesterday siezed onto the spurious leaked e-mail story and accused National of being 'in the pocket of the far right' and of being poised to 'introduce a secret agenda' if elected and 'not the kind of people we want running this country'. When Plunket asked him what the secret agenda might be, Peters started to babble about tax cuts, the most highly publicised secret agenda there has ever been, complete with advertising jingle and public calculator.

To his credit Plunket cut him off and made him focus on the real question . "Are you saying National are not the kind of people we want running the country? Does this mean you will not go into coalition with National?" An obvious enough question, the answer to which was fudged with a pathetic 'we'll wait until we hear what National has to say about these issues.'

Another page of the closing chapter in the life of the Volkwagen member for Tauranga. Volkswagen, I hear you ask?

All noise and no performance.

While i'm still ambivalent about Act maybe not being in the next parliament, I'd be pretty happy if NZ First didn't make it. I suspect that even if he loses Tauranga (apparently there's a good struggle for that seat) Winston will scrape enough votes to get in this time. But will he last in 2008?

Losing NZ First from our parliament won't be any real loss. Act at least injects some valid ideas from the far side of the political compass. NZ First just seems to inject vitriol (but then, maybe I'm missing the point).

ACT will make it back in Tane you'll be pleased to know. Rodney Hide is on track to win Epsom. Check out the latest poll here:

Ahem, as a Greenie, I'm not entirely sure I'm glad about ACT making it back in. It'll be so much easier to impose our politically correct, spiritually attuned, culturally sensitive, socially aware and sexually permissive hidden agenda without Rodney and friend(s) in parliament.

Well, at least Rodney and co will perform a useful function, and help keep a Labour/Greens government honest. Christ knows the Nats won't be able to, they'll be busy ripping themselves to shreds after they lose the election.......

(Sorry, I couldn't help myself with that second paragraph, the opportunity to shit-stir was too good to pass up)

Tane. You're the first Greenie I've come across with a decent sense of humour.

Thanks for that Adolf.

We do have a lot of jolly good laughs in the Green Party, we're not the dry, overly-serious wowsers you make us out to be. It's worth joining just for the knock-knock jokes;

Knock knock
Who's there?
Don
Don Who?
Ummm, sorry, I've changed my mind.

Oh, how the cold winter evenings just fly by.

And if Winston loses Tauranga, I'm sure you'll be joining us in a few good belly-laughs too.

I've spoken with some Green MP's who hope ACT make it back because they say ACT approaches issues like they do - from a principled, philosophical base - and they see that as much needed whatever side of the spectrum you're on.

Gooner - great point. I'll admit that my tendancy is towards ACT and Greens as the two parties I am most likely to support, for different reasons. I think these two parties generally have stronger fundamentals than either Labour or National. This next statement might give some people nightmares, but a pick-and-mix between ACT and Green policies would be my ideal. As a contrarian voter, If we had a right leaning government, I'd probably vote Green to moderate their policies, just as I'm currently tending towards ACT to counter left-leaning government.

What was that about? Sheesh Phil - you seem to have lost the plot amongst that Peta / Greenie / Vegan / Hug the trees madhouse.

Think carefully - prisoners are people who have turned upon society - people who have raped women, murdered innocent people and stolen.

Pointing out that they live better lives than most beneficiaries and low income families is not prisoner-bashing. It's truth. Reality. And advocating a prison sentence that acts as a deterrent rather than an incentive is a bloody good idea.

Good on ACT.

Question: Why did the guy with 300 convictions not have 6000 convictions?

Answer: It's a lot harder to commit offences when in jail.

Question: Why did the rapist get let out early on parole?

Answer: He had not raped any-one for the entire 2 years he spent in jail (at least, any-one that pressed charges).


Phil, you need to provide an incentive for people to go through rehab. I'm all for better rehab schemes, but that doesn't mean prison has to be a 3 star hotel.
