I wish msm was as fascinated with draconian beneficiary reform & union crushing law as they are with Aaron Gilmore calling somone a dickhead.
Bryce Edwards covered a bewildering number of blogs who gave a waste of political foreskin like Gilmore WAY TOO MUCH considered opinion while the Government quietly manouvered the right for the GCSB to legally spy on NZers.
To be blunt, I don’t care about Aaron Gilmore or the clamor for him to resign. That the National Party selected a rich, spoilt, arrogant prick as a candidate doesn’t interest or surprise me in the least. I am however incandescent with rage over the fact that since 2007, the average wage has dropped $107 per week, unemployment jumped from 3.9% to 7.3% and 25% of NZ children live in poverty.
Let’s channel our anger where it’s most needed. Yes the waiter had to put up with crap, yes Aaron probably misled the Prime Minister, yes he has all the hallmarks of a full blown born to rule arsehole but that’s pretty much my expectation for every National Party MP I meet and there are far more important issues we should be focusing on.
Gilmore has allowed Hooton and Farrar to climb to the peaks of Mt Righteous and denounce this bastard child of the National Party as if his boorish behavior is somehow not the real face of the average dickhead born to rule National Party MP.
Ultimately Key needs Gilmore’s one vote so he was NEVER going to be banished and all this hair pulling and shrill shrieking is worthless media teeth gnashing while the rushed legislation to allow the GCSB to legally spy on NZ represents a vast erosion of civil liberties requiring far more attention than it has.
If you have nothing to hide, you still have plenty to fear about the new GCSB laws.
