Remarkably Sean Plunkett still has a job today. The explosion of those who seem to have an intimate knowledge of Maori slang is also on the rise. This is the translation I trust, from Annette Sykes, Hua is a derogatory term used in Maori as a shortened version for the term pokokohua, which is as derogatory as Maori get.
Sean effectively got to call Eleanor every vile profanity in the English dictionary by using Maori slang. And still has a job.
For daring to suggest NZ has an anti-intellectual national cringe creating shallow neoliberal politicians, Eleanor gets a ‘burn the witch’ response. Hashtag irony.
The PM weighed in spouting his disappointment rather than merely accepting a citizens right to voice their concerns over his corrupt Government and the totally tainted Taxpayer’s Union has the audacity of trying to claim that as a publicly funded person, Eleanor can never criticise the corrupt National Party Government. Of Course Jordan Williams view on women in general aren’t all that nice are they?
From Dirty Politics…
“Similarly Jordan Williams offered to write a post for Whale Oil comparing National and Labour women. Slater said “Heh yeah”, and published it the next day under his own name (Jordan William’s, Facebook messaging to and from Cameron Slater, 22 April 2012). The thesis of this pathetic blog post, the point of which was more sexual innuendo against a favourite Labour MP target, was that, contrary to the ‘theory “that Labour Party women are dud roots’ it could be that ‘larger ugly ladies’ put more effort into sex than their ‘slimline bimbo sisters … Could the [MP] be onto something’…
If standing up to this corrupt Government and the slow witted sleepy hobbits who voted them in is traitorous, Je Suis Traitor.
If only we had sportspeople with the courage and conviction of our writers to stand up and speak truth to political power.
