I'm not responsible for... (satires on New Zealand's leftist Labour Party government)
Silent Running ^ | May 13, 2005 | "Tom Paine"

Posted on 05/14/2005 4:55:07 AM PDT by NZerFromHK

Another satire about New Zealand. Before we start, let me say a few words about what this satire is all about.

The leftist Labour Party is currently in power in New Zealand. It touts itself as a party providing responsible governance to the country, but the reality is very different.

Helen Clark, the Leader of Labour and Prime Minister, defamed Police Commissioner Peter Doone with fabricated leaks back in 2000 because she was interested to install a political puppet in his position.

( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/1401391/posts )

Jonathan Hunt, the former Speaker of the New Zealand Parliament and now High Commissioner to London (equivalent to New Zealand Ambadassor to the United KIngdom), sat inside his limousine during the entire Anzac Day outdoor service as it was raining in London. ( Story here: http://www.nzpundit.com/archives/010375.html )

Paul Swain, the current Minister of Immigration, has been involved in a controversy as the Immigratioon Service had admitted three high-ranking Saddam Hussein-era Iraqi officials (one was even a cabinet minister) into New Zealand under the category of tourists visiting their families. It emerged all three went on to try applying for residency in NZ.

John Tamihere, whose rhetoric makes him a moderate/"conservative" Labour, had abandoned his cats when he moved his home recently. It turned out his cats had HIV-like equivalent virus. ( http://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?c_id=1&ObjectID=10124140 )

Trevor Mallard, the Minister of Education, is involved in a funding scandal of a tertiary institution, Te Wananga O Aotearoa, which is not even a formal university, but receiving far more than any one of the universitirs in NZ. (There is no private university here and all universities are funded with tax) http://www.act.org.nz/item.jsp?id=26637

Dover Samuels had admitted "urinating in the corridor of an Auckland hotel after he was locked out of his room following a party fundraiser". ( http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/manawatustandard/0,2106,3263457a6407,00.html )

George Hawkins, Minister of Police (he is a good personal friend of our entire family but we must not let this interfere with my disapproval of what he had done), was involved in a scandal involving the emergency phone call 111 service (equivalenbt to North America's 911 or Australia's 000, or Britain and Hong Kong's 999). It is understaffed, and in more than one occasions, the 111 operators failed to discern a truly critical dangers and subsequently a few were murdered or had been missing since (presumably dead). ( http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3278715a6160,00.html )

It's truly a scandalous Labour government. And there are more skeletons in the cupboard for this administration - go and ask any experts in current New Zeaalnd political situations.

Now why do the NZ Labour pollie's antics take my mind back to Oz in the early 70's when Rex Connor tried to patch up the Whitlam government's fiscal mismanagement through the obtainment of a 4,000 million petro-dollar loan through a scum-bag named Khemlani, Jim Cairns conducted an affair with a female staffer in public, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam refused calls for an election although it was evident that the entire country had no confidence in his government, and it all fell down on the steps of Parliament on November 11, 1975 when the government was dismissed by the Governor General.
'May God save the Queen, for nothing will save the Governor General', Whitlam famously quoted, frothing in rage.

Nothing would have saved Australia had the petro-dollar loan been obtained, the socialists were prepared to sell our furture prosperity down the drain to stay in power, and Khemlani, had his efforts to act as a commission agent borne fruit, would have earned himself one hundred million dollars according to the terms of the contract.

Methinks the Iraqi buddies of Saddam are not welcome in NZ for nothing. The money to cover up fiscal mismanagement by leftist idiots such as illustrated on your excellent 'flyer' has to come from somewhere...right?

,,, they're paid to be responsible, but they're not responsible unless it is presented in the papers as a glowing success (brought about by money from tax payers, not necessarily good management or any degree of skill). There's been a long track of evidence to support that assertion. The much heralded fiscal surplus of $NZ7,4b is a real taxation triumph but it means citizens are forced more and more into expensive consumer credit. If you're a bank or a dairy company, you're doing well. The Party that's for the worker has sold the worker out with a continued low wage economy, supported by unions that have been bought off and Maori have been sold out with empty promises that were impossible to fill from the start.

Around 450 people a week are boarding flights to Australia, only to return to visit friends and family. New Zealand has no obvious future for young people now.

What we have is a collective of lesbians at the top sharing power with vegetarian eunuchs, a token transvestite and some gays. Klark has scrapped our air force, given millions to "the arts" to buy the gay vote and spent over $1,5m on chasing photo opportunities around the world.

The latest is the Doone affair... a well timed foot and mouth scare kept the fact that she lied off the front pages for a few days. Klark sacked her former Minister of Immigration, Leanne Dalzell for being "economic with the truth", but we're not meant to find out about Klark's transgressions at any cost. What cost? Well, fifty containers of meat are waiting to gain access to Egypt as a result of this foot and mouth scare. Questions need to be asked.

David Benson Pope© Fotopress - Ross Setford

May 16 2005 NewstalkZB [New Zealand]

Associate Education Minister David Benson Pope has been been stood down from the portfolio, while new allegations against him are investigated.

Last week in Parliament, Mr Benson Pope absolutely rejected allegations that when he was a teacher, he shoved a tennis ball in a student's mouth and taped the student's hands to the desk.

He told Parliament that he found the allegations disgraceful.

However, TV3 tonight showed footage of two of David Benson Pope's former students, claiming one was the tennis ball victim and the other was sitting next to him at the time.

The two men, who now live in Perth, Western Australia, say they have spoken out because they were angered by Mr Benson Pope's denials last week.

In a statement issued on Monday evening, the Prime Minister said Mr Benson Pope has, at his own request, stood aside from his portfolios while an independent investigation is conducted into the credibility of the allegations against him.

Helen Clark says she will be seeking advice from the Solicitor-General, Terence Arnold, on what form the inquiry should take.

She emphasises that Mr Benson Pope strongly refutes the allegations but has asked to stand aside while they are independently investigated.

Newstalk ZB political editor Barry Soper says misleading Parliament is seen as a serious transgression, particularly by a Cabinet minister.

,,, they're falling like flies. Dover Samuels was a target of Klark's from day one. Auntie Tariana got her bros get out of jail free cards, John Tamihere is a thorn in their side; Leanne Dalzell was economic with the truth and George Hawkins has the misfortune to be George Hawkins - Ruth Dyson should have been dumped for drunk driving, but she's one of the sisterhood. Now we've got Benson-Pope. If he was innocent do you think he would have volunteered to stand down?

PM cuts her favoured few to four journalists

John Drinnan: Press gallery members 'walking on eggshells' this week

As parliamentary journalists squirm over publicity about the way news is created by leaks from the Prime Minister's Office, Helen Clark has restricted the list of favoured journalists to four.

Newstalk ZB political journalist Barry Soper remains one of the few but the identities of the others are only the subject of rumour.

The Labour government is beyond hope. And this immigrant New Zealander will avoid voting for Labour at all costs this time round.
