You can’t sign away NZ sovereignty 2 days before Waitangi Day and then not show up and face the music – that’s gutless!

What an unbelievable state of affairs. He’s rammed through the TPPA with zero negotiation with Maori and the rest of the country, does it 2 days before Waitangi Day and before Parliament has even opened and now won’t turn up to the signing of our founding document because he’s too scared of the reaction.

He has time to turn up to sign the TPPA but he doesn’t have time to turn up to celebrate the signing of our Treaty.

After attacking Helen Clark for not going to Waitangi Day – Key is trying to avoid it – he’s not only a coward, he’s a hypocrite as well.

Perhaps Key knows his thugs are going to be so extreme on Thursday making any turn up at Waitangi impossible. Key is relying on his supporters garden variety bigotry who hate Waitangi Day anyway to get through this.

TDB-Waatea will be covering the TPPA protests live on Thursday.

  1. now won’t turn up to the signing of our founding document because he’s too scared of the reaction

    Is that really why he may not turn up? Really?. You don’t think it might be because the signing of our founding document took place some 176 years ago. You might think that the right hold Key in awe, but I don’t think anyone suggests he is capable of time travel.

    • Obviously, in his zeal, Martyn forgot to include the words ‘commemoration of’. A bit pathetic of you to try to make a major meal out of it.

    • If he were capable of time travel, perhaps he might remember how he felt about the Springbok Tour… Or what he said about that Standard and Poors valuation… or… or… or any of the thousand and fucking one things he conveniently can’t seem to recall.

  2. Could be – could be he’s run out of ideas – he doesn’t get a lot of practice with marks who are wise to his swindles. He might just run if a crowd look like catching him.

  3. Did anyone else hear the one where Key griped about Labour’s tertiary education policy, saying that it affected what future governments were able to do.
    What planet is this guy on? Really? He has managed to stitch the country up to NEVER being able to change our laws to ban foreigners buying land here and HE complains about future governments ability to do stuff.
    He never fails to deliver and along with the waitress comment on Labour’s policy can stun with the greatest of ease.
    Wake up, New Zealand! There is NO amount of money makes selling your democracry up the river worth it.

    • Did you realise that the China FTA has trade ramifications if NZ attempts to stop Chinese investment in property here, and that the Clark Government was warned that the deal was too much in favour of China, by believe it or not advisers from the ex pat business community in Asia? The China FTA is actually worse for NZ than the TPPA

      • The Chinese FTA is difinetley different to the TPPA. The Chinese can sue if we change market access. TPP participants can sue if we threaten profits. Ones about trade, the TPP isn’t

    • Good idea @ Tom. How about also the police step in at the behest of our Governor General and ‘actually’ arrest the fucker?

      Jonky’s not going to the signing of the whats-it because he doesn’t have to. Any lawyer will tell you that treaties , like contracts, mean nothing when push comes to shove.

      Where is Jerry by the way ? I know we pay a fortune to have the bugger hide in a mansion but you’d at least expect him to dust off his epaulets and strut about a bit for us in these heady times? maggie thatcher sent an armada to the Falklands when a few beastly Argentinians tried to take back their horrible windswept rock of a shit hole but when U$A-Mc Donalds is about to buy NZ for their shareholders ? Nothing. Makes me wonder.

      Makes me wonder if there’s not a Grand Master Plan.

      Lets hear it from Grand Master Flash while we’re at it.

  4. Gee…what to say?…what a guy… We are all awakening … is, or will he?
    Key has forgotten he is merely a blip in New Zealand’s history, to be remember or not. The love of power never wins out against oneness and the global corporate cabal behind this TPPA is crumbling financially day by day. When you can’t pay the piper etc. etc. etc.

  5. Would you turn up to an event Martyn that the event organisers voted that they want you there?, and if you did turn up, you are not allowed to speak! How many events have you been to Martyn that they didn’t want you and you were not alowed to speak?
    Can I surmise if Key decides to go (and he may still) you would then run a piece on him being arrogant to turn up to a place where he was not welcolme?, The Key Derangement Syndrom is strong in this one…

    • “Would you turn up to an event Martyn that the event organisers voted that they DIDN’T want you there?, D’oh, but you all got the message i’m sure.

      • Yeah, we all got the message – But here’s the kicker – We didn’t get it (or need it) from you. We got it from John Key. By scheduling the signing of the TPPA, which he knew full well was a bone of contention, just 2 days before the most important day in the NZ calendar, he knew that he would be placing the Maori representatives in a rock and a hard place position. Firstly, if they accepted him onto the marae, the Maori people may turn against them, which suits him fine – It’s one victory to have Maori and Pakeha battling against each other, but to have Maori fighting against Maori? That’s a National Party dream. Secondly, if they were to have refused him, he could play the “I wanted to be an inclusive PM, but they wouldn’t let me” card, which is still an acceptable Pakeha vs. Maori battle in the eyes of right wing NZ. Either he wins, or he really fucking wins.

        If you actually need someone to point such a simplistic modus operandi to you, then maybe you should save that “D’oh!” for later, when you figure it out.

  6. Seems now FJK – aka the great dictator Wang Ky Jong – will be attending Waitangi.

    According to Stuff the PM will “brave” Waitangi. Ahh poor baby. Might get a much deserved earful of the truth, making him feel somewhat uncomfortable. Good! This is exactly what he needs.

    After tomorrow’s protests in Auckland, FJK/Wang Ky Jong’s star could begin to wane, as more public attention is drawn to his odious TPP, as well as his arrogant dictatorial rule!

    We have had enough, you sanctimonious, perverted (ponytails/waitresses) creep!

    • My My Mary_A, you name call like a 5 year old in a sand pit how clever of you. Now it’s been what, ummm 8 years that many from the left have been saying Key’s ‘star is waning’ ‘popularity is falling’ etc etc, you will be invariably right one day Mary, but thankfully that day is a good 3-4 yrs in the future. I will give you a prediction! Little’s popularity will plummet (yes I know it hasn’t got that far to fall and using ‘plummet’ is like Martyn using ‘Tumble’ when saying NZ had dropped 2pts, 2nd to 4th, out of 197)by the end of this month and Key’s star will continue to rise and be higher by end of this month.

    • Well said Mary I 100% agree…….. Its great the right wing neo prats feel the need to show up and let us know they are on the back foot. Keep it up Mary we will turn this mess around ………. people are beginning to see the real john ‘The Con’ in his true light……. I will be at Waitangi to lend my voice to let him know how we the people feel about him and his kind.

  7. Turns out JK is going to go to Waitangi. Does this post have a ring of similarity to Martyn’s post the other day ripping into Slater for suggesting that Andrew Little was lying? I don’t suppose the same moral outrage that was reserved for Slaters suggestion that Little had perhaps made up the story in question will be repeated for Martyn’s outright statement that John Key is too gutless to even turn up to Waitangi?

    • Martin was correct in what he said about Cameron Slater being wrong. Andrew Little didn’t lie.

      Got any moral outrage for Slater being a shitstirrer….again? And everyone knows John key is gutless, and if he hadn’t of been pm he would have charged with physical assault and harassment.

      I think John key should be charged with treason.

  8. Having said he’s going I now read the protesters will,probably not allow him on the Marae. Which begs the question, what is the point? Half the tribe want him but no speaking rights. Now they say he can have speaking rights. Half don’t want him at all. Honestly the Maoris up north need to get their act together. They can’t even agree on a treaty settlement and continue to moan about being poor. Hopeless.

    • This song is dedicated to John Key:
      The Clash – Should I stay or should I go?
      If he stays there will be trouble
      If he goes it will be double.

  11. The natzi trolls have been hard at work on here I see. They’re out in force now, spreading their disinformation and generally backing the theft of our democracy. Minimum wage trolls, don’t they get it themselves? are they really that thick?

    • by “spreading their misinformation” do I take it you are referring to statements like this one?

      He has time to turn up to sign the TPPA but he doesn’t have time to turn up to celebrate the signing of our Treaty

      • “He has time to turn up to sign the TPPA but he doesn’t have time to turn up to celebrate the signing of our Treaty”

        That is not misinformation.

  12. I still reckon if there is any violence at the TPPA protest on Thursday & Waitangi day, it will be by paid national party supporters. So Key can label the protesters as violent thugs & turn it into a law & order issue to take the heat away from signing the TPPA.

  13. This agreement has been “under negotiation” since 2005 when Labour were in government. Additional countries came into the mix (while Labour was still in control) in 2008. Blaming the current National led government for “seeing it through” is unjustifiable. I challenge all the protesters to actually READ the 6000 page agreement that was signed today before they “diss” our current government and it’s leaders.

  14. Perhaps they can have an ‘ unsigning’ ceremony of the TPP at Waitangi – just to let Key know where New Zealand stands on this one.
