There are times when the talent pool inside Labour is shown to be so shallow, it’s more a puddle.
Now before I put the boot in, I actually like Deborah Russell, but sweet Jesus can someone please write her questions from now on, because this was as tone deaf as Simon Bridges ill fated Facebook posting. David Seymour would have been so excited by this inane rant by her, he would have been able to type the tweet out with his erection…
Ever wondered what Labour MPs really think about business owners? If you run a business, let Deborah Russell explain where you went wrong, and why. pic.twitter.com/KuKPtfa1ey

…What the hell is she doing????
If any right wing jerk were to say this about individuals it would be decried as economic Darwinism – many many many small to medium businesses struggle – blaming them for their weakness to ideologically point score is jaw dropping in its offensiveness!
Imagine the exact same wording for beneficiaries not able to survive this unprecedented pandemic and then blaming them for being too weak to survive it? We would crucify any right winger saying that! To appreciate how badly she screwed up, look at Grant’s face and the tone of his smack down because he knew exactly how that sounded to all those small businesses and sole traders now about to go under.
It’s a bloody patsy question to the Finance Minister, how do you mange to screw it up as bad as this?
Honestly her reply alone is worth 1.5% extra to the ACT vote.
People want to have their shared sacrifice respected, not denigrated by point scoring over a low wage economy and weak businesses who should have seen it coming.
Can someone please write her questions in future so we don’t hand the ammunition straight to the Right?
