Gutless maggot and former tobacco lobbyist, Christopher Bishop, has responded on twitter to criticism of his cowardly u-turn on medical cannabis….

Gutless maggot and former tobacco lobbyist, Christopher Bishop, has responded on twitter to criticism of his cowardly u-turn on medical cannabis….

…to which I replied…

…which prompted this response from him…

…so I gave him both barrels…

…cause for the Bish’, it’s all just one giant joke isn’t it folks?

Terminal cancer patients, AIDS sufferers and those in chronic pain being arrested for choosing cannabis is all just one big joke for Chris.

You don’t expect a tobacco lobbyist to have anything close to resembling ethics but making criticism of his spineless u-turn on medicinal cannabis all a big joke is slap in the face to the tens of thousands of NZers who are made criminals by his gutless sophistry.

He’ll vote for you to commit legal suicide if you are in and pain and dying from the product he used to pimp for, but he won’t let you smoke a joint if you are in pain and dying.

I didn’t like him before this, but now I think he’s a malicious little creep whose much vaunted charm has all the cosmopolitan class of sheep drench Martini’s.

If this is the future leadership of the National Party, the National Party are in trouble.

    But do you expect anything less from a party, that left Pharmac underfunded by 682 million over 8 years and left pharmac with 116 Plus drugs unfunded as of March 2017 . 6 of them diabetic drugs which 10s of thousands of diabetics are using, that have to pay full price on just to stay alive every day.Many of them in the 18 to 25 age group who are feeling totally screwed over and suicidal because of the downstream effects of the unfunded drugs cause.

    Bishop has no problem with tobacco killing NZers. I thought he was his own man based on his gutless vote he isn’t he is just another clone from the gnats

    Give him fucking heaps @ Martyn Bradbury.

      very inappropriate behaviour, but lets face it, lobbyists make their trade in dubious circumstances…

      @ Countryboy … I read this article and found it very odd that a grown man is engaging in social media chat with minors! Not sure what to make of it really. Thirteen years old is light years away from voting. So what were Bishop’s intentions … ?

      Be interesting to watch how this one is spun out …!

    according to TVNZ and stuff, Mr Bishop was using Snapchat for some at least, of the online contact that got the attention of several young girls parents

    now correct me if I am wrong, but Snapchat messages can be set to delete within seconds of being received, not a high standard of accountability for an MP…

    just think for a minute what the reaction might be if say a Labour MP had been revealed to have been online in such a manner with 13 year old girls!

  5. […] I despise Chris Bishop, here were my thoughts on his gutless u-turn on cannabis reform and his childish response on twitter. […]

    Bomber, watching two grown men exchange schoolyard insults on the net reminds me of an old saying; there’s no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It’s a waste of your time, and it annoys the pig.
