Exclusive Brethren behind smear pamphlets; will Cullen apologise?

One News tracked down the names of people listed on the smear pamphlets - all of them are members of the Exclusive Brethren.

So much for Cullen, the Green Party and the Frog Blog blaming National or affiliated people. Will they now apologise?

The Exclusive Brethren are a very conservative patriarchal religious sect who only marry within their community, don't allow women to wear make-up and don't use the internet or watch television. A leader of the Exclusive Brethren refused to comment.

>>It is brilliant, like squeezing blood from a stone.

As for Cullen apologising, I doubt it. I left don't like saying sorry when they are proved wrong on such generalisations. I am still waiting for an apology from the lowly "Oliver", whoever the fuck he actually is.

The bretho's are actually salt of the earth people, who usuallu run successful businesses (they never give discounts, sell good gear which is usually priced at the higher end of the range, and funnily enough always ask for a discount- I used to give them one in one of the shops my old man owned, until I tried getting a reciprocal arrangement in one of their shops). They generally don't cause anyone else any bother (apart form god of course).

The fact that they are a religeous group is going to send the lefties into meltdown, and now the brash bush hitler crap is going to go into overdrive, no doubt one of the lines will be, "see helen was right, the Nats are in liege with the christian fundies who we all know are sponsored by the evil amerikkkans"

will the MSM have the balls to front the hodgson assault or run with Christians corrupt campaign

The EB are the finest neigbours I've ever had.

They showed and complete disinterest in me which I returned.

Their strong family based social system will be red rag to socialist. It's telling that the EB feel the need to enter into the political arena at this point.

Perhaps they don't find Helens policies as good to live next door to as I was.

Just out of interest why did you title them a "Nutty religious group".

TV3 news tonite called them 'a sect' and said they had done the same for President Bush last year.

Incidently our beloved leader said today Tax Cuts will have the same result in NZ as they have had in the US - less money is spent on infrastructure which leads to disasters like we have seen in New Orleans.

Didn't think she would sink that low, must be desperation

Murray - from my personal experience in Wangavegas. However that was a long time ago. I will change the title to something more informative and less judgemental.

Off topic but this is too good to let pass

From stuff

"United Future's Larry Baldock has been forced to adjust his campaign spending after the Chief Electoral Officer ruled newspaper advertisements were an attempt to influence voters."

bet you didn't know that before

United Future candidate caught out over ads

>>What a crock of ignoramous shite spaying from Clark's mouth.

Being the richest country in the world did not help much when a very large hurricane hits one of its big cities. The whole event is pretty much unable to be planned for. It was huge.

What would Helen do if a hurricane that size hit Auckland or Wellington? Wave an extra billion of infrastructure at the problem? The infrastructure is all demolished in the bloody storm!!

She could do jack that is what she could do...

Well they should have had a proper evac plan. But does Wellington have a proper evac plan? Not as far as I'm aware. When the big quake hits (or alternatively a massive volcanic eruption somewhere near Lake Taupo), this country will be royally stuffed.

I wonder what would happen to the Nuclear Ships ban if we have a disaster and the US offers to send the USS Abraham Lincoln?

Is there a copy of the pamphlet online somewhere?

Oooo revisionism!!!

To be fair I would have called them the same ten years ago.

I just think the "nutty" bar has really been raised a lot recently.

The EB seem positivly dull compared to others.

Am I the only one who thinks the Labour campaign is in real strife now and is going off the rails fast?

Their strong family-based social system would be a red rag to anybody that values themselves as an individual, not just socialists.

I disagree.

The EB are certainly an extreme example but how many of their kids are brought home by the police at 2 am?

"Nutty' is a charitable description. It is easy to confuse open brethren with closed brethren. Talk to someone wh has tried to leave this awful sect and you will see how nutty or benign these people are.

Tried to leave an Islamic husband recently?

Now not all Muslim men are like that.

But then the looks some Indian female friends of mine have gotten from Muslim Indian boys have been pretty damned evil.

Here is the Green release about it. Basically summarised... Brash! Christians! Bush!

Exclusive Brethren secret backers of Nat’s campaign

I do admire how the Greens can keep a straight face while accusing other parties of playing dirty.
