Labour is the nasty party, Ctd

Labour candidates are out of control. Two of Labour’s supposed up and comers have now taken to abusing journalists and questioning their ethics, all to publicise their pathetic attempt at raising some cash.

With a media and technology spokesperson writing hand-wringing posts about bias in the media and proposing a policy to bring media to heel you would think Labour’s other candidates wouldn’t want to be dissing media, especially ones that appear every night on television:

Message discipline is clearly out the window and it is a free for all for Labour’s candidates.

Focussing on things that matter, Ctd

It’s official, Labour’s candidate in Helensville is offically a joke candidate. He won’t be troubling the scorers much if he keeps focussing on the things that matter….like Smurfs in 3D

Jeremy Greenbrook-Held, Labour’s Helensville candidate is now the kissing police.

Labour says the Law doesn't apply to them

In the Herald this morning Labour leader (Pro tempore) Phil Goff has said that labour will continue to ignore and break the law in their campaign to Stop Asset Sales.

Labour leader Phil Goff, who launched the campaign last week, said he didn’t know who within his party had put the signs up, “but if the council has a problem of course they can talk to whoever might have put them out”.

While the signs were modelled on stop signs “nobody’s going to mistake it as a stop sign, that’s just silly”.

“This is just the National Party highly embarrassed by the fact that most New Zealanders don’t want asset sales and the Labour Party is standing alongside New Zealanders in that view.

“In fact we’re leading the push back against the assets sales. That’s why they’d love to see us not have the chance to get our message out there.

“We’ll keep using those signs. If the council’s got a problem we’ll listen to them of course, but nobody thinks they’re going to be a traffic hazard, that’s just nonsense.”

Where to begin with his statement. For a start he says he doesn’t know who put the signs up? There is photographic evidence of at least 8 MPs or candidates including Carmel Sepuloni, Trevor Mallard, Iain Lees-Galloway, Darien Fenton, even Phil Goff himself. Jeremy Greenbrook-Held even boasts of the one he put up in Helensville.

Then he talks about the National party being embarrassed which is hilarious since no one in the National party has said a word, it is bloggers that have snapped their campaign and now utterly destroyed it.

Then Phil Goff declares that they will just carry on regardless despite the law.

So Labour is poised to ignore the law (again)?- and encourage their supporters to participate in potentially dangerous and illegal behaviour.? Phil Goff doesn’t care about motorist safety. Andrew Geddis points out Labour’s problem:

Now, this isn’t to say that Labour can’t?produce signs that look like stop signs, or stick these up in places that?aren’t visible from a roadway. It’s just that those putting them up – most of whom I’m guessing are enthusiastic volunteers – shouldn’t be putting them up alongside the roads. And Labour also probably shouldn’t be saying “We’re aiming to blanket the country with [the signs]”, which could (at the least) be interpreted as encouragement to use them in ways that are prohibited.

It is worse than Andrew Geddis suggest because on their Facebook site they even go out of their way to state:

Yes, the admin of the Facebook site tells us all that they designed the signs to mimic stop signs. That breaches the law straight away right there. Then they go on:

Labour's sign stuff up

Labour wants to blanket the country with them…the photographic evidence suggests that blanket the country means hammering them into grass verges, having loons jump up and down at busy intersections carrying stop signs and leaping into the path of on-coming traffic brandishing red stop signs.

The LTSA should be telling Labour to axe the signs?- because right now there’s a risk other groups will ignore the law and quote?this ham-fisted?campaign and Phil Goff’s statement as a precedent that the authorities did nothing about.

Chop Chop for Pork Chop

Chop Chop for Pork ChopNBR won’t publish it but Whaleoil will.(Click for larger version)

I knew this was going to blow up in the bitch’s face so I took the liberty of a screen shot of her blog post labelling Ponsonby local and retail assistant Kwija Kim as Donna Awatere-Huata.

There are two egregious errors on this page. Firstly is Pork Chop’s photo, she hasn’t looked like that forever, to continue to exhibit such blatent photo-manipulation surely must be a breach of the sale of goods act.

The second error is that the photo supplied is purported to be that of convicted fraudster Donna Awatere-Huata but is in actuality Ponsonby local and retail assistant Kwija Kim.

And it isn’t like Pork Chop can claim this was a simple mistake. She/the paper actually phone Awatere-Huata who denied it was her in the first place. But oh no they went right ahead and printed anyway.

I think it is time for a Press Council complaint about Pork Chop. Though you could hardly call her a journalist as she interviews her keyboard all too often. This, though, isn’t a simple case of plagiarism which the Herald pilloried that Irish tart over, it is a bona-fide case of making shit up and it wasn’t even April the First so she can’t use that excuse. making shit up is a sackable offense and one action that the Herald should take in order to maintain some semblence of professional integrity. They sacked John Manukia, they should sack Rachel Glucina.
