An unbelievable exclusive by David Fisher, the SIS & GCSB are staffed by racist scum…

NZ’s spy shame: An ‘old boys’ club’ that makes racist jokes, report finds
New Zealand’s intelligence agencies are largely staffed by white males in an “old boys’ club” with “excessive” and “unnecessary” racist jokes made at the expense of Maori and Pacific staff, a diversity study has found.

…this is being spun by the Government as a recruitment issue, we shouldn’t allow them to get away with that. The SIS & GCSB are telling racist jokes in the workplace while other Maori and Pacific Island staff have to grin and put up with the racism. What’s the bet they tell sexist jokes as well?

These are the people who have been given enormous power by John Key to legally commit mass surveillance and send that mass surveillance directly to the NSA and it’s staffed by racist scum?

If they are racist towards Pacific Island and Maori – how are they towards Muslims? Isn’t it just too much of a coincidence that at last months review into the Intelligence Services, instead of answering a question as to why the GCSB spied for Tim Groser to get the WTO job, all they wanted to talk about was ‘Jihadi Brides’? NZers and media were scammed into talking about Jihadi Brides and demonised Muslims when we should have been talking about why the bloody GCSB was spying for John Key’s mate a job!

Does this racism expand beyond jokes? Do they target Maori, Pacific Islanders and Muslims more with their powers? They spy agencies claim they have an ‘unconscious bias’, which is exactly what the Police admitted to last month as well.

How much ‘unconscious’ bias does one need before you have to admit that you are a conscious bigot?

How have we allowed spy agencies to be staffed by racist scum and how have we allowed them so much power? Remember the SIS worked with the PMs Office to falsify information and smear Phil Goff in the lead up to the 2011 election. If we have spy agencies willing to become involved in domestic politics to keep a Government in power, and that Government in turn then hand vast new powers and millions more in budget – what do we call that other than corruption?

The sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind have much to answer for in allowing Key to turn our spy agencies against us, especially now we know they are staffed by racist scum!

  1. We are entering a fascist state controlled system clearly now so opposition parties wake up and unite to destroy this evil Government now for 2017.

    • Their intelligence was not particularly good with regards to the Urewera Raids when they arrested the Puha Gang.

      No terrorists or evidence of terrorism was actually found?

    • Here are but a few excerpts from the Art of War by Sun Tzu…
      ……………………………………………………………………………………….

      1) If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

      2) Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

      3) Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.

      4) Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

      5) When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move
      When strong, avoid them. If of high morale, depress them. Seem humble to fill them with conceit. If at ease, exhaust them. If united, separate them. Attack their weaknesses. Emerge to their surprise.

      6) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.

      7) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.

      ………………………………………………………………………………………..

      This last one is applicable to the ego’s found among the leaders among the various political party’s of the Left … because of their desperation for gaining victory they are blinded to that very principle of unity – thus their defeat is entirely predictable.(7)

      The second to last one (6) is best exemplified by Kelvin Davis – who , – though he may be a rabid neo liberal , ultimately served the Left well by his bold trip to Christmas Island – thus showing Key up in light of the ”the Left supports rapists and murderers ” comment ,… as well , … this is also an example of the ‘ extraordinary moment ‘ (3) Sun Tzu talks about …

      The Left is great at tactics – but has no united , coherent strategy – and is the ‘ noise of an army before defeat ‘ (4) , – again , – an entirely predictable outcome.

      ………………………………………………………………………………………..

      1, 2 , 3 and 5 are only possible if conditions are fulfilled by adhering firstly to the others – if not – then without unity of purpose you are lost.

  2. ” Remember the SIS worked with the PMs Office to falsify information and smear Phil Goff in the lead up to the 2011 election ” .

    And lets not also forget the compliancy and willingness by these same agencies to break the law and to spy on Kim Dotcom and around 80 plus other individuals…

    And that Key rescued the agencies involved in that illegality by rapidly having the law changed to avoid himself and other major players being prosecuted.

    Jobs for the old boys network…

    Key denied he knew Ian Fletcher yet upon perusal we learnt that not only was Ian Fletcher a boyhood friend but that Key and Fletcher had breakfast a few hours before he was picked to head the GSCB.

    Despite more qualified contenders for the job on Keys short list.

    After the illegality of the warrant and thus of the arrest , seizure of assets and imprisonment of Kim Dotcom – particularly after it was found that the spying on Dotcom and others was illegal – Ian Fletcher resigned as head of the GSCB and till this day refuses to discuss his role around those events.

    Even the sequence of events which saw the SIS strongly advising to deny Kim Dotcom residency in New Zealand and then their advise overturned within an hour by the dept of Immigration headed by Jonathan Coleman smacks of entrapment for the USA’s purposes…

    OCCAMS RAZOR , LADIES AND GENTLEMEN !!!!

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    Any detective worth his salt can clearly see govt complicity headed by the PM in that whole shoddy treatment of a NZ resident.

    TV3 …formerly owned by Stephen Joyce was at one time struggling with financial difficulty’s … so this neo liberal govt decided to bail TV3 out to the tune of some 43 million dollars…

    Think of it… a neo liberal govt giving 43 million dollars to a PRIVATE BUSINESS…. you can almost hear the resentment of all those small businesses struggling to pay their bills every month…

    And TV3 claims it paid it all back… well… maybe so… or was it to placate shareholders, invest in totally unrelated offshore ventures , or , – to upgrade and increase equity in the property value to leverage for other investments…

    And yet several years after when John Campbell and Campbell Live was starting to embarrass the Key led govt… Keys mate Joyce ( the silly one who at one time was the virtual mouthpiece for Key until his fall from grace as the Publicity manager in the failed Northland campaign …) had compliant old boys and girls embedded as the new managers of TV3…

    How?… quite simply in a small country where the media community is a small tight knit one as in NZ , strings and loans and grants and deals from the govt are very easily made…

    As well as threats to deny funding for non – compliancy…

    All the more easier to justify shutting down that well deserved govt criticism…same happened to Dita De Boni of the NZ Herald…

    How very , very interesting indeed …

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    OCCAMS RAZOR , LADIES AND GENTLEMEN !!!!

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    Which makes it ALL the more interesting that the article about this inherent racism in our spy agencies was plastered all over the front page of the NZ Herald…

    You see , people ,… in only touching the tip of the ice berg in what has obviously been govt manipulation of our media, spy agencies … coupled with the hasty amendments and changes to laws to cover for govt deviousness and illegalities surrounding the Kim Dotcom case …

    Laws that have served previous PM’s quite satisfactorily and who saw no reason to change those time honoured laws…( And not the least Keys abdication of responsibility accepted by former PM’s as just part of the job description and parceling it out to another minister in the form of Chris Finlayson )…

    Is it any wonder at all that here we now have a situation of govt depts, …with little or no real accountability save for the govt asking us to ‘ trust’ them… that being based on disclosures that have obviously been designed more as a PR exercise to assuage public fears of surveillance than to really inform in an any real or honest way…

    And who most possibly have a certain ‘ profile’ for any future employee’s … one that will be loyal to the agenda’s of the current govt… and not necessarily at all to the integrity of the sovereignty of our nation or the protection of the individuals rights.

    And that profile having a certain psychological make up and criteria – and that being drawn from the ranks of those most likely to benefit from a govt who have the power ( or audacity ) to change laws at a whim for political expediency’s sake – that and the maintaining of those sectors who would have a lot to lose if a more democratic and open govt was to assume power…

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    And for those long suffering neo liberal right winger apologists who would try to convince us of govt veracity and integrity I might remind you of the total tenuous grounds of your defense…

    Take the case of Stephen Wilce…

    Who claimed he had a distinguished combat career, was part of a British Olympic bobsleigh team , among other things…who gained the position in NZ as head of the Defense Technology Agency ( DTA ) – which advises the govt and Defense on scientific and technological matters…yet a reporter posing as an interviewer found discrepancies in Wilces CV…

    Lieutenant General Jerry Mateparae seemed pleased with Wilces work…YET,….

    After it becomes public , – lo and behold we find that…

    John Key gets in on the act – but only AFTER the reporter had exposed discrepancies in Wilces CV – as did the Defense Force who suddenly DENY it was because of the findings of reporters in the TV 3 60 Minutes programme.

    Also funny how Wilce was recruited while Bruce Ferguson was Chief of the Defense Force – yet AFTER that debacle – ‘ Bruce Ferguson’ then becomes DIRECTOR of the GSCB…

    Almost like magic…isn’t it , …how these same names and faces never seem to get called to task but go from strength to strength….and salaries…

    AS WITH the consultant / recruitment group Momentum ( funny how the SAME NAMES keep cropping up , isn’t it … ) ie : Jenny Shipley , Momentum Consultant Group Board , Michelle Boag : former National party president , senior executive at Momentum in public relations and who were members of the company Momentum who originally ADVOCATED for this fraudster…

    And yet the SIS was charged with the vetting for this position ( Head of DTA/ Defense Technology Agency ) …

    And Key was Minister in Charge of the Security Intelligence Agency…

    Funny that….

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    OCCAMS RAZOR TIME, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN !!!

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    AND SO…. is it really harder to believe after all these incidents over the years … with ALL these SAME OLD NAMES cropping up constantly and phasing in and out of the latest scandal – these names that are NEVER brought to account – that these same names WOULDN’T choose lackeys in our spy agencies that fit the profile for protecting the status quo’s power base?

    AND THAT INCLUDES RACIST YOUNG GEEKS chosen to protect New Zealand’s moneyed and politically empowered privileged class?

    You know, …. I don’t think we can afford to indulge ourselves in the luxury’s of fantasy’s any longer in continuing to give these names the benefit of the doubt.

      • June 17th 2011 Ian Fletcher takes 1 days leave from his Brisbane govt job to attend an interview with Key in Auckland , – Key has a breakfast with Ian Fletcher … Keys shortlist is thrown out on July 6th.

        Later on , Keys calls Fletcher to apply for the job. Fletcher then is interviewed for the job on July 26th , then gets the job as Chief of the GSCB .

        Four months after a visit from the USA’s security chief , James Clapper.

        Key denies he ever knew Fletcher – turns out they were boyhood friends…

        Great to see a bit of Campbell Live again , isn’t it… no wonder Key wanted Campbell gone…

  3. We live in an inverted totalitarian state where our free speech and thoughts are already on the borderline of what the “elected government” (It is not choice when $$$ on privatized Mass Media determine voting trends) would consider “Politically Correct”.

    Truth is a scarce resource and is openly attacked by our “Media”. The quotes here are important. When channels,news papers masquerade as journalistic outfits then we have a very controlled narrative on our airwaves. Our sources of information are in the hands of corporations with billionaire board members. Our “Journalists” are essentially mouthpieces for the elites and NOT serving the Kiwiw public. This is a distinction that needs to be made. You can write about 31 flavours of Baskin Robins but you cannot offer an objective analysis of almost any geopolitical or domestic political scenario that would hurt the interests of the billionaires that control the information highway in New Zealand.

    To talk of “elections” and “opposition parties” is playing the game by their rules, trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. There is no real left just pseudo/compromised “Left”. Instead it is neo-liberalism that is on offer no matter how you vote.

    “The sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind have much to answer for in allowing Key to turn our spy agencies against us, especially now we know they are staffed by racist scum! -”

    People can only wake up if their value system is genuine and not created on Netflix. So, unless ordinary Kiwis come around and take big money out of government/media/politics you can soon expect the same sleepy hobbits to be parroting hate,fear,intolerance and imposing fascist policies and cultural attitudes.

    P.S Recently learned that unless you enroll to vote you could be liable for a fine. Democracy much?

      • Don’t mind the haters. The truth is, just to sophisticated for them. Just like the right believed the earth was flat (still do) they to still believe that the wealth trickles down (and still do believe, religiously)

        • Yes AE – too many syllables for the NACT trolls to read. They don’t bother reading anyway, they just downvote what everyone here else upvotes.

          Gosman, one of the perennial NACT trolls here complained the other day that someone had broken into his house and stole all his books. His complaint was that he hadn’t finished colouring them in yet.

  5. When we have an American sycophant as Prime Minister who can honestly be surprised when our Intelligence Services (sic) behave exactly like the American Intelligence Services?

    Key has so many skeletons in the closet it would be so easy to exert control over him if you were in the know.

    Take this “accusation” about Key lying to the Serious Fraud Office when he was a mere mortal …

    (from a comment by VLCNZ off reddit)

    “Key’s Impossible Timeline
    May 1991 John Key is interviewed by the Serious Fraud Office
    • He is asked to corroborate the statement of an ex colleague
    • This colleague has told them he could be sure of a date, 31 August 1988, because he had allegedly gone to lunch with Key that day
    • They both tell investigators this lunch occurred on Key’s last day at Elders Merchant Finance
    • They can remember the date because it was Key’s ‘farewell lunch’
    • He was leaving Elders to go to Bankers Trust
    Official timeline
    • Key resigns Elders Merchant Finance 24 June 1988
    • His last day 31 August 1988 shares a farewell lunch with a colleague
    • He starts at Bankers Trust sometime after 31 August 1988
    However, we’ve been told
    • On first day at Bankers Trust Key was given a list of premium clients
    • On that list was Andrew Krieger, based at the company’s New York branch
    • Key was responsible for managing the relationship with Krieger, it was part of his job description
    • Krieger’s trades helped to turn the local Bankers Trust branch into the number one dealing room in the country
    Here’s where the official timeline goes wrong
    • Krieger resigned from Bankers Trust New York on 23 February 1988
    • His resignation is well documented, appearing in both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal at the time as well as discussed later in Krieger’s book
    • Krieger quickly bores of currency trading and leaves the currency markets in June 1988; not returning to them until late 1990
    • Krieger’s resignation is some six months before the date Key tells investigators is his last day at Elders; Krieger’s departure from the currency markets is two months prior
    Proposed timeline/events
    • Resigns Elders sometime between June 24–September 15 1988
    • Immediately leaves the firm but is subject to ‘Gardening Leave’
    • During this period he collaborates with the firms New York office in some heavy duty currency speculation
    • 70% of Bankers Trusts’ currency trades were done in overseas markets, hence Key is able to carry on trading during his gardening leave
    • Gardening leave ends sometime early 1988 and Key’s official start with Bankers Trust begins
    If Key told SFO he started working at a company in 1988, but evidence suggests it was 1987, then he has lied to them and New Zealanders’ deserve an explanation.
    John Key did you lie to the Serious Fraud Office?”

    Is John Key a serial liar?
    Would Key use the New Zealand Intelligence Services for personal advantage?
    If Groser got the position at the WTO and the other candidate found out after the fact, would they have protested Keys use of the GCSB and SIS to get Groser the position?

    • And here we have it…. the deliberate implying of the Maori as ‘thick ‘ and disinterested in academic pursuit, interested only in beer and smacking the missus if she gets out of line…

      ” Cook the man some eggs !!! ”

      In all its stereotypical condescension.

      • Er, no… the point is that we don’t know how many Maori are applying for these jobs or whether they are suitably qualified.

        Believe it or not, jobs and promotions are usually rewarded based on things like experience, education, performance, etc. NONE of which are looked into by David Fisher.

        He simply looks at the stats that say “women make up 51% of the population, but only 40% GCSB staff, ergo they must be sexist”, which is simplistic claptrap.

        But seeing as we’re discussing it, why don’t you tell us how many Maori A) finish school and B) obtain any sort of tertiary education

        Then we can see for ourselves whether the GCSB are indeed being racist, or whether the pool of suitably-qualified Maori is in fact severely limited.

        Prove to me that the GCSB are inundated with job applications for well-qualified, experienced and educated Maori candidates who are being overlooked in favour of inexperienced, under-educated, under-performing white males… because David Fisher certainly hasn’t managed to get anywhere near proving this.

  6. Well to be honest I hope they do target Muslim communities considering a terrorist attack is 99% likely to come from their community.

  7. With an attitude like yours we could be forgiven for being underrepresented.

    Your still as crae in 2016 as 2015 I see undies

    • Now a simple observation of the efficiency of those paid by the neo liberal right wing is the speed with which they are generally always the first responder’s to websites such as these.

      And the motive is simple : to create the impression that opinions expressed here are of a ‘ minority ‘ , that they ( the Left ) are of a ‘marginalised’ sector, that the appalling reality of what is happening to this country …always was, … and always will be , ….and that there is no alternative.

      IT IS PRECISELY BECAUSE of this patronage that we know that we are threatening these people.

      The reality is this : while the neo liberal is quick to rally , … it is a truth that the Left has a certain ‘ lag ‘ time in catching up.

      It has happened time and again on websites such as these. One could also extrapolate that in fact …. many of these are paid students , working as stooges while their masters are away on holiday … or seeking promotion in the Right wing PR company with which they draw their employment.

      And therein is a weakness for them.

      Their very employment. A simple trace could expose just ‘ who ‘ they work for…but we are not that sadistically inclined , therefore we don’t. Nor are their temporal allegiances worth the time, finance and effort in doing so…

      Not so the current govt… with its reliance on PR company’s , slanted polls and corporate backing… they have no scruples whatsoever in employing such methods as these…

      Many such bolder tribalist’s of the neo liberal right even attempt to reproduce their perverted ideology here on this blog… but to no avail because the simplistic line of their reasoning falls flat on its face rapidly upon any common sense perusal.

      This ‘ delay ‘ ….or ‘ lag ‘ in the Left mobilising is easily explained as most normal people are spending precious time with family and friends over the Christmas break…not so the neo liberal .

      The lower tier neo liberal and those employed in various think tanks, Polling and Statistic company’s are on contract to ensure a certain portion are always on hand to contradict any popular suspicions … particularly over the holiday period when peoples guards are down…

      Do not think for even one moment these are the opinions and likes of a sector that represents the normal New Zealander… these, … are but paid mercenary’s ….and like mercenary’s….are usually of the lower echelons…

      And moreover…. are people who have no particular loyalty either one way or another… thusly no conscience , and thusly are just as easily knocked off , bought off or subverted .

      Sun tzu would call that treating a captured spy to become a counter spy.

      Again… we expose the motives and exploit the inherent weakness.

  8. ‘ Politics is war ‘…

    A famous quote we are all familiar with … and here are a few others…

    ” We have women in the military, but they don’t put us in the front lines. They don’t know if we can fight or if we can kill. I think we can. All the general has to do is walk over to the women and say, “You see the enemy over there? They say you look fat in those uniforms.” – Elayne Boosler.

    ”May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t.” – Gen. George S. Patton Jr.

    ”Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words it is war minus the shooting ” . – George Orwell (1903-1950), British author. Shooting an Elephant, “I Write As I Please,” (1950)

    ” To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace ” . – George Washington, Speech to both Houses of Congress, Jan. 8, 1790.

    ” The quickest way to end a war is to lose it ”. – George Orwell

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    Interesting albeit crude illustrations of war and politics…

    ………………………………………………………………………………………..

    And how does this apply here in New Zealand?

    Quite simply , taking the first premise : Politics’s is war.

    The fact is , – ALL politics is war and ALL war is ECONOMIC.

    And since 1984 , there has been a thirty year war waged against the public of New Zealand. It is replete with its own propaganda systems , financial backing , dividing of resistance , converting that resistance to compliancy , disinformation programs , media blackout of its failures , embedding of agents in key positions , – in short – ALL of the qualities one might see in any military / political campaign to conduct warfare.

    The first to go are usually the academics.

    These are the easiest to control as a simple denial of funding soon gets them into line. The second is usually the media . Simply by embedding sympathetic agents among the media senior positions and employing a descending self policing aspect – in this case by threat of job loss through non compliancy … these are also easily as cowed.

    None of these fields are taken over and then simply left leaving a vacuum – they all have the hallmarks of an ideological takeover by filling that vacuum with an adherent of the more aggressive ideology in senior positions – usually with a financial reward for their services.

    But in order to fight any war… you must at least know exactly who your enemy actually is…

    You see…we of the center left and left are great at railing against ‘ right wingers ‘ and being just as guilty as the right in making gross generalizations… but we are very tardy when it comes to identifying EXACTLY WHO is our enemy.

    A simple example is when this country functioned under social democracy … there was not a great deal of difference between the National party and the Labour party back then.

    And so we see that the National party IS NOT your enemy , the Labour party IS NOT your enemy , the MANA party IS NOT your enemy , NZ First IS NOT your enemy ,…and so on and so forth…

    So just who is ?

    THE ENEMY that has perpetrated all these things on New Zealanders are the NEO LIBERALS.

    And there is no use trying to take them all on at once, instead- go for the weakest and isolate them. Not all in the National party are content to play second fiddle to a small group who hold sway, and not all in the Labour party are neo liberals – as evidenced by the party membership who are largely discontented with the predominance of neo liberals in caucus.

    And useful neo liberal stooges are just that – as evidenced by Kelvin Davis travelling to Christmas Island – or David Seymour in opposing Keys surveillance because of his ‘ individualist’ neo liberalism.

    Use them.

    Then round on them.

    Dirty Politics?

    Not really… for a start we do not use govt dept’s to slant public perceptions and influence voting patterns unlike the current neo liberals, … there was a time when politics in this country was relatively clean, – the neo liberal takeover of 1984 ended all that.

    IT WAS NOT THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC LEFT, who abused our democratic systems to political advantage nor was it in fact the Right… but the new right … the Neo liberals.

    But ALL of these things count for nought if the social democratic Left does not unite. And to do that needs a new and bold initiative. And that would include a ‘ summit ‘ meeting as it were of leaders of all major Left party’s , in order to establish certain commonality’s of policy and to determine tactical voting – way before any general election.

    This would do several things : those vehemently opposed would soon be isolated as the neo liberal sycophants they are. They therefore would have no party to these ‘summit meetings ‘.

    As well as this , tactical voting could be worked out to avoid cross purposes in any given electorate. And utilitize MMP for what it was originally designed for.

    You say ” yeah but the media is in the pocket of the neo liberals and their corporate’s”… true…but it is only because WE let them do so. And the method remains the same. Pick off and isolate the weak , marginalize, and divide. Set them against each other. Pick one and be relentless.

    We saw results with Serco Sam , Oravida Judith Collins, – where is the arrogant Stephen Joyce now after his fall from grace as failed campaign manager for Northland ?… an indirect assault on the very neo liberal leadership. That is what is needed. Play one off against the other.

    And above all have the attitude of Blood and Guts Patton :

    ” May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t ” .

  9. Are you kidding? Fisher’s article is statistically-illiterate claptrap.

    It’s like me saying “the people who have collected my rubbish for the last 30 years have always been male and Polynesian, ergo waste management companies are sexist and racist”. Or “90% of staff behind the make-up counters at Farmers are female. SEXIST!”

    We have no idea how many women / Maori APPLIED for these positions. It could well be that even though women hold only 40% of roles at the GCSB, only 10% of job applicants were women; therefore women actually have a higher ‘success rate’ when it comes to interviews and promotion.

    But we don’t know because Fisher is only telling us half the story.

    One of the most ridiculous parts of Fisher’s article is, “Diversity in gender was also an issue, with female staff reporting promotion being a case of “not what you know, it’s who you know”.

    Female staff reported this based on what???

    It’s pure speculation. It’s the old “you didn’t promote me because I’m female/black” whinge – which fails to take into account performance, experience, education, aptitude, psychological testing, how well you interviewed, etc, etc.

    As for the sexist/racist jokes – WHO CARES? Pretty sure any Australian or Brit has also been teased in the workplace. They could also say that they are subject to “racial bullying”. Boo hoo – he called me a ‘whingeing pom’ waaaaaaaah!

    As usual – it’s only racist if it’s against Maori/PI or Asians, right?
