Oh my god, the manics have done it! National have drunk the Kool Aid and have elected Darth Mutter as the new National Party Leader…

Judith Collins announced as new National Party leader – source

Judith Collins is the new leader of the National Party, according to a Newshub source.

…the reason Judith Collins was never given power was because the Party feared what she would do with it – in their hour of total desperation they have reached out to a politician they can barely control – this will end badly.

Top 9 People thrilled Judith Collins is the new leader:

National have replaced a dirty politics scandal drenched leader with another dirty politics scandal drenched leader while an inquiry into the first leaders dirty politics is due out in a month.

If Judith is the answer, the question is ‘what can make it worse’.

When the inquiry findings comes out, we will all understand why Muller has suddenly walked the plank and no one will want to be Leader of the National Party on that day.

NZ doesn’t want or need Judith Collin’s dead eyed Prime Ministership. She loves blood more than your average Great White Shark.

She’s adored by the raw meat chewing base, but frightens in a way Simon Bridges couldn’t.

Middle NZ will recoil in terror from the gleam of her fangs the way they do from capital gains taxes and gluten.

The manner in which Judith positioned herself to be just within reach if Muller imploded was a masterclass alongside the Book launch in rebranding while knife sharpening.

I have zero doubt Judith would declare Martial Law for the most tiny of infringements.

Has Cameron Slater been appointed as Press Secretary yet?

    • But she,s only there as an interim until Luxon arrives, in fact you could call her team Gerry and the Placeholders.
      Collins was part of the Key era that destroyed ordinary kiwis lives.

  1. Martyn, at times i have criticised your grammar.
    Hats off to a wonderfully expressive response!

  2. Middle NZ will recoil in terror from the gleam of her fangs the way they do from capital gains taxes and gluten. Rubbish; they will embrace her if she protects them from the evil CGT… ask Chrisfran..

  3. More seriously, I don’t think they realise that dirty politics is not normal practice. Most of them admired John Key precisely because he was a skilled, blatant liar. So they think Judith is OK…

  4. And Gerry Fucking Brownlee as deputy. What. The. Fuck!!!. This has all the pleasantries of an exploding septic tank, mid summer.

    I’m sure this was a particularly terrifying scene from The Omen. Cue dark coloured German Shepard’s, Rottweilers and Ravens suddenly appearing from absolutely nowhere.

    • My thoughts too Xray. Seriously what was she thinking? New campaign slogan…” The 80’s are calling”.
      Brownlee is a hot air balloon of little substance, just ask Christchurch.

      • He is but a costly meathead who when needed to deliver, (Christchurch rebuild, Transport Minister who cut corners on Aucklands North Western motorway rebuild), fell well short and then got impatient at being questioned and went all snarky as all good entitled Nats do.

        He’s unpleasant in a less bitchy way. But in any case this pair are like a pleasure if locusts.

          • We quite liked “pleasure of locusts” . I had to get rid of my auto correct for this same reason. It doesn’t have any reference to content does it! Now my long suffering partner is constantly telling me how to spell things .
            D J S

    • Thanks for the giggle XRAY you take the humour award today for;
      “Gerry Fucking Brownlee as deputy. What. The. Fuck!!!. This has all the pleasantries of an exploding septic tank, mid summer.” – bloody brilliant XRAY.

  5. “Middle NZ will recoil in terror from the gleam of her fangs the way they do from capital gains taxes and gluten.”

    So she and her spin merchants will have to create a bigger fear to which she will be the apparent saviour.

    Danger ahead.

  6. Brilliant response to Crusher Collins election to National leader, so two shocks on one day and this will be the norm when Collins releases her venom.

    She will want to sell everything she can while she can.

  7. Love it! Very funny mate!
    But not as funny as your face when JC (Christ, that was clever!) takes the NP to a position where they can pull the same stunt with Winston and ACT that Labour pulled last time. We only need 40% odd….and it’s on!
    So how will she do this? Easy, she’ll just keep pointing out what Labour have really achieved in three years (besides the crisis) – and that is jack shit! Nada! Fuck All!

    • So how will she do this? Resurrect Whailoil and Eade. More homeless, promise take breaks, reduce infrastructure spending. Yep she’s a winner alright. Fuck no, no one wants to go back to an era where National achieved fuck all but Oravida got easy border access.Herman, New Zealand have moved on from that shit and corruption in general.
      So point out what National have achieved again and no, building roads, massive immigration and overseas property investor scams don’t count.

    • Labour has done more in 3 years than National did in 9, so your argument also works the other way. Besides, can you see Peters and Collins being great bed mates? If it happens (I doubt it – Winnie isn’t stupid), that particular coalition will self-destruct within 6 months, guaranteed.

      What is likely to happen is Peters taking votes off National and getting above the 5% threshold but Labour still, just, getting above 50% of the vote and being able to rule alone.

      • Ken, Collins stated clearly this morning that Nationals caucus have a mandate that they will not work with Peter’s. However, if it means the power of office( as when English had to negotiate with the middleman at the last election) they will do anything. National has massive distrust issues over the past12 years,Dirty politics, leaking personal details etc, etc,

    • As long as National have Woodhouse on its team, Labour win easily. Otherwise they’re saying ” In Woodhouse we trust”.Like saying to the NZ public, corruption is our main policy.

    • Good onya mate. This is going to be cracker and if memory serves me correctly, Winston doesn’t have any utu with Judith or Big Gerry. What has the Coalition government achieved this term? Sweet bugger all. When did Labour do when it was in opposition? Sweet bugger all. So when Winston put them in charge of the Treasury Benches they had no policy prepared. Betcha Winston and the Greens did. Then Labour couldn’t organise a booze up in a brewery. The government was so disorganised it was a bloody rabble. If a business was run that way it’d be broke and owing the IRD a bucket load of money. Kiwbuild – an abject and utter failure; the 50 million trees – another failure; light rail in Auckland – an abject and utter failure, CGT – an abject and utter failure and Saint Jacinda had to promise that whilst she’s PM that it will not be government policy Five Cabinet Ministers out of 22 who actually have a clue about the job. The rest might as well be deck cargo on a submarine.

      And you expect this shower of bull manure to get a second term? You all gotta be dreaming.

  8. C’mon Martyn, you would have had the same post..with a few tweaks n changes no matter who was picked, you would have worked on a scathing ‘what were National thinking’ piece on Mitchell/Collins/Kaye and a cpl of others then use the correct one when result known!
    Good choice, means we won’t get postings from you/the lefty media/woke snowflakes at the debates calling “mysoginy” “bully” if it were a male leader debating Arden. Collins will tear Arden to pieces in any head to head debate as Labour have failed in almost every election ‘promise’ and policy over the last 3 years. (Which you have numerous postings about)
    Will Labour still win?…YES, but not at the 55-60% you are all orgasmic over, 48-52% most likely and Greens and NZ1st under 5% now that would be a great result

    • Wonder where I’m hard Rightwing nutjob got to?
      Didn’t see your post on the lies and corruption of the leaked emails. Collins has nothing, Arderns intellect will decimate Collin’s in the debates, and you my little puff cake will be consigned for 3 years minimum.

  9. Ol’ Witchy Poo! Fuck me they ARE desperate!More rats will flee the sinking ship.Collins will press gang them back into service!

    • Yup I think she shouldn’t be underestimated – there is a consensus among many that Labour are now being financially irresponsible and Collins will look to use this to hurt them.

    • No we dont . Her language already is disrespectful ” get rid of that lot” s hardly statesmen like. Imagine that on the world stage.
      Also remember she was donkey deep with Cameron Slater eeewww!

      • Her first words as leader were something about “taking our country back”.

        Newsflash Judeath – it’s NOT your country. It belongs to the citizens of NZ!

        Remember us ?? We banded together to halt Covid’s progress.

        In the meantime, ALL you and you party did was try to undermine that effort.

  10. Great choice of Judith and Big Gerry as the leadership team. This will make the lead up to, and the election interesting. It will be a scrap and it’s about time that National went back to its traditional leadership style.

    Before people start screaming dirty politics, don’t forget Labour is being investigated by the SFO for irregularities around donations during the 2017 election and it involves the same group of donors before the Court along with Jamie Lee Ross.

    • There is also an investigation and possible criminal charges facing National party ministers over privacy breaches and political party donations to National before you get to caŕied away.

      • Actually the investigation into the National Party donations irregularities has been completed with four people charged. Three donors and Jaime Lee Ross. Two of those three donors are involved in the SFO investigation into the Labour Party donation irregularities during the 2017 election.

    • Yes but remember labour is being looked at only because of the way their actions are run not blatant deceit as national are being prosecuted for by splitting donations they knew were from the one source.

  11. I wonder what emails poor old Muller received prior to his resignation.

    Gun to his head, in some form, betcha.

    The Queen of Dirty Politics planned this, and enacted it.

  12. All those “Muller has mental health issues” lines?

    Give me a break!!

    He had no choice but to step down. His or his families’ lives were not worth it.

    Dirty Politics emerges from the NZ toxic swamp. Eeeuuughhh!!
    (It is slimy, disgusting, and it stinks!!!!)

  13. Sigh… Just when some of thought we might have a chance at getting free of the claws of the CCP…

    Madam Wong Tung takes the stage.

  14. Ms Collins/ Mrs Wong Tung reminds me of Dick Cheney. He also was likened to Darth Vader, and when asked how he felt about that, – he was perfectly happy with it. Madam will be too.

  15. At last we National for what it truly has become i.e a Party of troughers and dregs.

    Their new leaders Collins and Brownlee are well established troughers and what is left behind them supporting them are the dregs. I saw in one photo one dreg that is Simeon Brown standing behind and to the left of Collins in a photo opportunity.

    With Collins at the helm of the NZ National Party I wouldn’t vote for National for all the tea in China, Oravida, Swamp Kauri, broken gas line,etc.etc.etc.

    But I am sure Collins will stoop to whatever low level she can and get some of her cronies in the media and its fringes to resort to dirty politics. I guess Cameron Slater will be somewhere amongst that fringe lot.

    Collins will prove she has no morals or scruples and will make allegations that will hopefully further destroy National at the election in September 2020.

  16. ‘A long-time admirer of Thatcher, Collins said in a recently-published autobiography, Pull No Punches, that she had held a “wake” for the former British prime minister in her office after her death in 2013, “for those conservatives who, like me, saw Thatcher as the person who more than anyone else was responsible for getting Britain back on its economic feet after decades of decline.”

    Well, that says it all, since Thatcher was a nasty, vicious, uncompromising bitch who not only persecuted the poor but implemented such awful economic polices she can be held largely responsible for Britain’s demise. Her polices, under the acronym TINA, There Is No Alternative (when there were a multitude of alternatives, many of which would have generated far better outcomes) resulted in Britain’s North Sea Oil bonus being squandered at the fasted possible rate in a bonanza of overconsumption, whilst she promoted humungous mal-investment in all the wrong things, resulting in Britain becoming one of the most toxic nations in Europe, both politically and environmentally, to live in.

    Anyone voting National with such alarm bells ringing so loudly has to be grossly uninformed or just plain nutty as a fruitcake.

    But we all know there are environmental vandals and social saboteurs with prominent positions in the media who will be having wet dreams over the prospect of destroying what is left of the environment and destroying what is left of social cohesion (after 40 years of gross mismanagement by both National and Labour, but especially National).

    One good thing about having a perpetrator of so many crimes against the nation as National leader is that the idiotic policies Collins will undoubtedly announce will be seen to be completely unworkable. Those policies would be counter-productive if they could be made to work, as per the last four decades. (Well surely National are going to have to have some kind of policy platform; they can’t just say “Vote for us because we wear fancy clothes!”…oh maybe they can, because a true blue voter will vote for their own demise as a matter of pride).

    Forget what’s happening in the real world and keep regurgitating failed policies from the past – that’s the National way.

    Of course, with the world rapidly turning the custard, there will be those who look back to the halcyon days, when you could operate a good rort without being found out, and could siphon off public money into your and your mate’s bank accounts without too much bother. And you could tell blatant lies and people would believe you.

    I’m sure the neuro-linguistic progammers in the back rooms of National (or their mates in the advertising industry) can come up with something along the lines of ‘A better, brighter future’. Maybe ‘A brighter, better future’. How about ‘Working together for a brighter future’ (while you do the work and we take the rewards for your work).

    As long as everyone is well-groomed and smiling, I’m sure there will be a few suckers who will fall for it, yet again.

    For the rest of us it will be good riddance to bad rubbish when National shoot themselves in the foot again, or shit in their own nest again, or fall flat on their faces again.

    For me, the only questions are: how much time and energy will be spent trying to resuscitate a dead horse? and how long before the globalised loot-and-pollute and transfer-wealth-from-the-poor-to-the-rich system [that National are welded to] completely disintegrates?

    • The thing is AFKTT that many people admire Collins for her ruthlessness and her deviousness in manipulating her position to profit from digging up miles of northland swamps protected for decades to profit her husbands Chinese company from ancient buried Kauri . As many admired Thatcher for the same ruthlessness and for putting the miners and their unions in their place. ie no place at all.
      As Martyn says this morning we will find out soon what proportion of the electorate sees it this way.
      D J S

  17. Yes a female version of Muldoon, Collins statement…

    “”I think it’s really important we all have a common goal and the common goal is to get rid of the current government and put in place a far better government focused on the people of this country,” she said at a press conference and standing in front of her caucus.

    Yep, that’s original.

    With her and Brownlee at the National Party helm, they will get the ACT party voters back, the only issue being that their ideas will still be from the 1980’s/90s.

    • Lol bert- you were saying we can count Collins out in Chris Trotters article…

      Here is what you said in Martun Bradbury’s Todd Muller’s shock resignation: Winners & Losers…

      bert July 14, 2020 at 3:38 pm
      Countryboy, by this time tomorrow it could be the Bridges and Bennett show again. Then the ABC brigade will see the end of Collins.

      Truth is, Martyn Bradbury has seen this coming for years so we all have our pants down and dicks in the air over this… so dont feel bad 🙂

      • Dont feel bad at all as I used the caveat ” could be”.
        However no issues with Collins being leader as her history is appalling.

        • Nope you said ‘will be ‘.

          As in…” Then the ABC brigade will see the end of Collins”.

          I find the whole thing hilarious as it means we see a strong but fetid opposition in place to keep this Labour led COL/ Labour majority post September on their toes.

          • No , go back a paragraph Wild Katipo..” by this time tomorrow it could be the B&B show.Then …”
            Given the first DIDN’T happen, clearly it wasn’t the end of Collins.
            Semantics my friend.

              • I actually thought you were more intelligent than that Katipo , however…may I suggest cryptic crosswords where you look at things from many angles, rather than black and white.

                ROFL.

  18. Would really like a play by play of the hole Oravida scam, I don’t understand how none of these rich a holes ever get prosecuted for corruption and yet still able to run for election? Seriously though what in the F is going on here!!!

    • In a country were the 4th estate is corrupt, biased and owned by the rich (who are invariably right wing) the right wing have someone watching their back. re: ‘if the MSM don’t report on it, it didn’t happen (or was all legal)’

  19. They’ve gone from desperation to sheer panic.
    This Hail Mary decision to make the worst possible choice will eventually see Natz & ACT scrapping over the 5% gun nutter/ anti-1080 vote.

    Rather than shoring up their support for 2023, they insanely think they can win with an unabashed sociopath and hands-down Queen of Dirty Politics.

    Wow. What a year.

    • You forget how poorly Collins behaved during the select committee ‘process’ for the firearms amendments, licenced firearms owners won’t.

  20. The Swamp Kauri Party have not only elected a career long repugnant swamp dweller as their leader, they have wrapped that leader up with a festering turd by choosing Gerry Brownlee as their despicable deputy.

    Any politically naive people out there that thought for a moment National may have regretted having so many hands caught elbow deep in an excrement covered toilet bowl, have been shown by their choices here that the National Party only know one way. The vile, underhanded, arrogant, attack on democracy and divisive way.

    Dollars to donuts that despite the faux retirement and alleged withdrawal from the party, Collins and Boag will be running a covert operation together. Same with Whaleslime Cameron Slater and “others”. Collins is the epitome of dirty underhanded politics and Brownlee very much of the same ilk . We knew National was desperate but their choices of leader and deputy are a whole new level of desperate. The blue trolls will of course be convincing each other they have a winning hand but the reality is, they would attract more support if they put up a hologram of an intoxicated Rob Muldoon as their leader.

    • When I see Brownlee, what I see is a toss up between Jabba the Hutt

      ‘Jabba Desilijic Tiure,[1] (colloquial: Jabba the Hutt) is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. He is a large, slug-like[2] alien known as a Hutt who, like many others of his species, operates as a powerful crime lord within the galaxy.’

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabba_the_Hutt

      and Mr Creosote

      ‘Mr. Creosote is a fictional character who appears in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life. He is a monstrously obese, rude restaurant patron who is served a vast amount of food and alcohol whilst vomiting repeatedly. After being persuaded to eat an after-dinner mint – “It’s only wafer-thin” – he explodes in a very graphic way.’

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr_Creosote

      In view of the criminal activity Brownlee was associated with after the Christchurch earthquake, I am inclined towards Jabba the Hutt.

      What an unstoppable team: Vlad the Impaler and Jabba the Hutt. We are likely in for the scummiest election campaign in NZ’s history. Certainly the most dishonest.

  21. Oh , actually?- it was one of yours, Martyn, …

    Here is what I said…

    ———————–

    Todd Muller’s shock resignation: Winners & Losers

    I wouldn’t count Collins out. She is the only realistic opponent to Adern. She has a native cunning to sniff the wind and see which way things are headed, to do so with ‘charm ‘ when necessary, and enough intellect to zero in on weak chinks in her opponents armour. And enough ruthlessness and killer instinct to apply that to Adern.

    She has also had the Police /law and order portfolio to establish her as the archetypal ‘tough on crime’ thing going on to appeal to many timid conservatives.

    And despite being set back by Key , – shes still there and Key is long gone. People can see shes got the guts and ‘Muldoonism’ style adversarial nature to challenge Adern and any mistakes by her and her caucus. She thrives on that mode of politicking. We have also already had a raft of female politicians so that precedent is broken.

    Tribal Nat voters would rather vote for her than see their beloved party in opposition any longer than they have to be.

    Also, because of her Chinese businessman husband, what better way of having that link stay intact and also many other Nats personal business links as well, esp after the demise of Jian Yang…

    Adern and Collins seem to get along swimmingly, however…what better way to keep the neo liberal paradigm in place….

    (Just copy and paste all of the link to see the picture below …)

    https://bauerfrodouat-cdn.azureedge.net/uploads/7eccb1af-d994-44cd-910b-92700518b797-MT1215_Jacinda-Adern-Judith-Collins-15.jpg

    ————————-

    It is the obvious tactical choice as well as holding the neo liberal paradigm in place, – two women – on the supposed sham ‘left ‘ and ‘ right’ battling it out. Yet both vying for the most socially acceptable position in the current neo liberal global position.

    There is no difference between Ruth Richardson and Helen Clarke going on here now. The only difference is that one is more like the odious Margaret Thatcher than the other.

    • AAAHAHHAHAAAAA . I told you so… this isn’t a time for stuffy male leaders with outdated dinosaur neo liberal dry as three day old toast , – this is a time for feminine wiles with the ‘caring , nurturing’ approach and just how do you think anyone of those so called manchildren from National ‘men’ was ever going to challenge Adern?

      OF COURSE IT WAS GOING TO BE ANOTHER FEMALE !

      And whose left among National with the guts, Muldoonism and bull-doggish-ness other than Judy Collins? Eh? Who?

      NOBODY !!! Not Niki Kaye, not the other one,- Amy I think shes called , – no , – none other than Judtih ( the ghost of Muldoon ) Collins !!!

      L0L0L0L0L!!!

      Politics has just gotten exciting in New Zealand for once!

      Popcorn sales available with special discounts for seniors and children. Fasten your seatbelts!

  22. Miracles happen, remember the 2017 election? Old Tooth Fairy will chocking on her cornflakes this morning.

        • Hi Gary can you give me an indication how long will it take for Judith to go on stress leave? Remember in 2014 when she had to take 5 days as she had a breakdown after question time in parliament re Oravida. Seems she is all bark and no substance.

          Hope the media is kind to her otherwise we might see a new leader before September.

    • Gary,

      Reality check time.

      You compare Collins with Ardern. That’s akin to comparing a bucket full of vomit and toxic excrement…..with mothers milk.

      You are so fucked up that a woman not in the National Party having the audacity to govern NZ, you can’t refer to her without making a ridiculing comment about her teeth. Can we see your pearly whites or broken and missing yellows please?

      WTAF does it mean to be “chocking” on her cornflakes? Is this a word or phrase known only to subterranean troglodytes or is it a reflection of all the National Party trolls that left school on their twelve birthday?

      Good luck with your recovery and I trust the Collins dream turning into yet another devastating nightmare does not crush you emotionally even more.

    • I see friendship.
      But then Collins did say she’s not going after Ardern, she stated she will go after Arderns incompetence ministers

      • Yes, interesting isn’t it. Muller said the same thing.

        I see friendship as well. Neo liberal friendship. Is this what we really want? Friendship between two neo liberal travelers?

        This is why I posted the song ‘WAR!- What is it good for?’ on Nicky Hager’s post (Judith Collins and the book Dirty Politics – Nicky Hager )

        Just whose fighting who here?

        Anyways,.. lets hear it.

        Edwin Starr – War (What is it good for)
        https://youtu.be/ztZI2aLQ9Sw?t=3

        Brilliant song.

          • Ok but , if we were to be honest, long term , is there going to be much difference for the working classes if either one of these women gain/ retain power…?

            THAT’S,… what concerns me.

    • Collins is a sociopath WK. Look up the term folks. Friendship for a sociopath isn’t what normal people consider friendship!

      • And who or what proves that?

        What criteria do we bring to bear? A convivial meal and a few glasses of Ros’e covers a multitude of errors of judgement it seems….

        Lest We Be Naive.

  23. Didn’t get it quite right with this song IN Chris Trotters article but it was close, Martyn always did have a concern about Judy Collins ROFL !!!

    Back to the 1950’s and 60’s when EVERYONE knew their station in life with Jude Collins !!! ROFL !! ROFL !! ROFL !!!

    Angels – My Boyfriend’s Back
    https://youtu.be/5NuofNHKbVc?t=2

  24. I see no one questions Collins’ competency. That is the key. The last 2 leaders bumbled and stumbled whereas Collins won’t – you might not like her policies however you won’t be able criticize her for feeble efforts.

    The worrying thing for Labour is that Collins has nothing to lose so a lot of the harder policies will be able to come out. Far from scaring the ‘middle’ these might actually appeal. Time will tell however I am looking forward to question time and the debates far more than I was

    • I see no one questions Collins’ competency.

      No one question’s the competency of Xi Jinping, either.

      • Xi ( known as Teddy Bear) is highly competent. His track record shows that as well as his handling of hostile US sycophants

    • She was really competent in her role as ACC minister, so much so it needed a complete overhaul.Collins turned ACC into a profit making organization at the expense of kiwis longterm health.

    • Yes; you can see how both Simon and Todd were damaged by attempting to undermine Jacinda’s popularity. Crusher might not make any more progress but she won’t herself be damaged in the process. That might be because part of the personality of the two men was a kinder face whereas Judith’s appeal does not depend on any image of common decency so she has nothing to loose.

  25. Well Muller was pushed and told to quit by his masters Goodfellow and others as he did not live up to their expectations. Nz need to realize the National leaders serve at the pleasure of Corporate New Zealand. Corporate NZ dictate who leads the National party, they are the mere glove puppets of their masters. That is why Judith had to message them in her first press conference, “crush the current government and take the country back” to grovel to their wishes and ease their distress. The reference Judeath Cillin’s made no sense and then it became clear, she’s been called on to cull the COL. Corporate NZ considers the COL government, with their progressive program, a threat to their strangle hold on the country, threatening their housing and immigration ponzi’s and heaven forbid pay better wages. Seems we will all have to invest in blue hats with MAGA on them.

    • Yep we believe that too; but this was odd”

      yesterday all over the news was the rich saying “Tax us; – tax us, – tax us????

      Then this morning on the AM show Duncan Garner asked Judith Collins ( as the newly installed National Party leader) “Judith; – are you now going to tax the rich??? Judith said no we are not going to do that!!! “we are the party that doesn’t want tax increases, we want to grow the economy”

      • History have taught us that when riches get concentrated in the hands of the few, there is a tendency of adverse events to correct such imbalances eg French revolution, wars etc. Some of the uber-rich is realizing that a correction is near and imminent and the only way they can save themselves is to share their ill gotten gains. But keep in mind it is only a small group that see the need for self preservation as they see the Covid health crisis and expected famine to follow, creating the ideal climate for a correction threatening their position of privilege. We are spectators of a phenomenal crisis unfolding in slow motion and we can only observe and make an effort to survive it

        Judith wont ever agree to tax the rich as her appointment was sanctioned by the National Party Board which is controlled by Corporate NZ or the rich. If she does she will be gone by lunchtime.

  26. As I said in another post: Collins will make Rob Muldoon look like a choirboy by comparison.
    Collins is poison.
    A lot of the more moderate National Party supporters can’t stand her, while the worst elements of the political right adore her.
    So two female leaders will be slogging it out for only the second time in NZ history.
    The contrast between the two is startling.
    It is like a choice between Maid Marian and Morgana the witch.
    I think National has now given up any reasonable hope of winning the election; their aim will be to run their political opponents out of town and create as much havoc as possible before polling day.

  27. Politics has just got interesting. Before it was a bit like watching the All Blacks play a primary school side.

  28. Labour had better disassociate itself from the Greens tax plan fast ( Judith has said NO new taxes, which will be a winner)

    ….many NZers are only so-called wealthy on the basis of house and land price increases due to the flood of immigration and overseas buying up of scarce resources ( under the Jonkey Nactional Government)

    ….the Greens will further separate struggling New Zealanders from their land and houses…as many New Zealanders who have lived in New Zealand for generations will not be able to afford the Greens ( so-called ‘wealthy’ taxes…

    The Greens will encourage an assault on natural landscapes and farm land subdivision so taxes can be paid

    ….it will alienate the so called “wealthy” NZ elderly and the “wealthy ” young NZers under crippling mortgages from their unaffordable houses and force them out of their homes because they can not afford the Greens taxes

    …who will buy up this unaffordable land and houses ?….why foreign overseas very wealthy of course

    • Judith Collins was called Minister of corruption in 2013.

      Orivida scandal – http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/9949636/Judith-Collins-dubbed-minister-of-corruption
      ‘MINISTER OF CORRUPTION’

      Labour leader David Cunliffe today used the protection of parliamentary privilege to attack Collins over her links to milk exporter Oravida, labelling her the “minister of corruption”.

      Cunliffe accused Collins of lobbying for the interests of her husband’s business while in China on taxpayer-funded business and told Parliament she was “toast”.

      Collins had lectured the Chinese about corruption “on the same taxpayer-funded trip where she had dinner with the chairman of her husband’s company and the senior Chinese border control official that company wanted to get its products through”.

      “That is corruption; that is what – to quote her – corruption looks like.”

      Cunliffe also targeted Prime Minister John Key.

      “John Key is no better. He is donkey deep in the Oravida scandal.”

      Labour MP Grant Robertson questioned whether the official was from China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, also known as the AQSIQ, which was responsible for decisions about letting New Zealand milk products through the border in the wake of the botulism scare.

      In a testy series of exchanges Collins refused to answer because it was a ”private dinner” and later told Parliament she could not be bothered answering other Opposition questions either.

      Documents released yesterday showed Oravida had lobbied government ministers to intervene over New Zealand milk products being slapped with stringent new border requirements.

      Collins also faced more questioning from Peters about why she would not reveal the name and position of the border official.

      Also using parliamentary privilege, Peters claimed Collins had been “enlisted specifically to address” issues to do with border testing.

      Other companies in the same position did not get the same help, he said later in the House.

      “While these companies struggle through the waves of a bureaucratic sea, Oravida goes past on a jet ski with Minister Collins at the helm.”

      There was only one reason the Chinese official was at the dinner and that reason was Oravida, Peters said.

      ‘The NZ milk company’ on show in China as Crusher Collins inappropriately used public NZ Government funds to show it to China as NZ owned but she and her Chinese husband were executives and shareholders of Orideda; – so how does that pass the “serious fraud office” then??????

      Nikki Hagar get started on this new book.

        Nikki Hagar get started on this new book.

  29. At least Nikki Hagar will now be writing his next book “the return of dirty politics”

    National can only win playing dirty politics, and corruption.

  30. ” The Prime Minister’s decision to recommend she retains her “honourable” title for life, was a “nice touch”
    Keys decision after Collins had been exonerated in the S.F.O inquiry.
    These people are incorrigible vermin.

  31. Looking forward to a debate between the National and Labour Deputy Leaders….

    That’s if Kelvin Davis can be persuaded to leave witness protection

    • If you do a little homework you may well find the CCP come down hard of corrupt players like crusher. Oravita may do as they like in NZ but would watch their step in China very carefully.

  32. Clear that Collins’s attack will centre on the government taking on too much debt and this being mismanagement of the economy – however I have been looking into this and can someone please let me know how accurate these figures are:
    Our debt pre-COVID was approx 19% of GDP and the $50 billion USD that we are borrowing will take us out to approx 34.9% of GDP?
    And in comparison current national debt for the UK is 103% of GDP / Germany 85% / Japan 261% / Aussie 27%?
    Could someone please correct these numbers if not correct?
    Just trying to understand if the Nats have a point or this is just scare-mongering . .
