The Judith Collins Death Star: Winners and Losers

These fucking muppets

The Death Star that is Judith Collins is now fully operational. At a time when her Caucus were most frightened and desperate, they have reached out and enabled a politician they can barely contain.

I’d say she was Muldoon in drag, but Robert was never this muscular.

Judith has spent the last 24 hours sweetly smiling and saying all the climate denial and welfare bashing she’s done in the past decade were just jokes and some weird fight she got into with Jacinda over Jacinda not talking about her.

The rise of Darth Mutter is the most unhinged political adventure we’ve seen National embark upon. The crazy is only just beginning.

There are so many winners and losers it’s difficult to keep track.



Dirty Politics: Never let it be said that Dirty Politics doesn’t work! Collins electorate is Mordor, and her involvement in the darkest parts of Dirty Politics should recoil, it should be awarded! Is Cameron Slater the Press Secretary yet?

Darth Mutter (Dark Mother):  She has done it, Judith is Leader. All the cut throats, the buried bodies, the spiteful twists of the knife – it has all paid off as she now towers over the Party like the Sword of Damocles ready to smite anyone who doesn’t join in the political killing spree she’s about to plunge the election into.  In Judith’s National, everyone has to spill blood for the leader.

Chloe Swarbrick: This is her chance to shine in Auckland Central. She is a far better candidate than Helen White and the electorate wants a unique representative. With Nikki Kaye standing down, Chloe has never had  better chance of winning an electorate for the Greens.

The worst angels of our nature: Judith appeals to White Walkers, The Joker, House of Slytherin and The Sith. Judith can play to the worst angels of our nature with her whiplash wit and gleeful malice. She will take polarising positions for the pure mayhem of it.

China & the Blue Dragon faction of National: As China lose their spy trainer inside Caucus, they gain a firm friend in Judith. The Blue Dragon faction inside National will be gleeful.

Trumpism: The greatest irony in all of this is that Muller was engulfed in trouble because he had a MAGA hat – Judith Collins however is closer to Trump’s style of revenge politics in a way Muller never was. She and Brownlee will lower the tone of this debate to Trumpisms quicker than Donald can blame Democrats for the pandemic.

Swamp Kauri, Oil, Gas and Coal Industry: Everyone who enjoys exploiting the environment but doesn’t want to pay for the pollution will love Judith. She’s promised to crush every rule that slows economic growth and she will use the pandemic as the excuse to do that.

Intensive Farming: Say hello to a billion more bloody cows.



Amy Adams: Too educated for National under Judith.

Michael Woodhouse: Too damaged by the upcoming inquiry to keep in health.

Nikki Kaye: Too moderate for National under Judith.

Matthew Hooton: YOU STARTED THIS WITH MULLER! YOUR INCOMPETENCE HAS BROUGHT ABOUT JUDITH COLLINS BEING LEADER! There will be a new level of hell opened just for you.

Todd Muller: Who?

Mark Mitchell & the wealthy white Christian glee club faction: That rich white Christian glee club that put Luxon in play also back Mark Mitchell. Their influence has been eroded by the Blue Dragons, expect leaks to come from this faction.

The Climate: Judith doesn’t believe in climate change and her reign of terror will be the equivalent of 5 coal powered energy plants going every night of the day for 3 years.



Jacinda has to step up if she wants a second term and she has to talk to Labour and Green supporters about what that second term can achieve without spooking the vast new electorate of National voters who will Party vote Labour for the first time ever out of respect for Jacinda’s management of the pandemic.

Luckily for Jacinda, that vast new chunk of National voters party voting Labour for the first time will recoil in disgust at Judith’s antics over the next 9 weeks.

On Saturday 25th the Alternative Aotearoa Left wing election hui to demand progressive change in the first 100 days will be held and live streamed on the Daily Blog.

The Green Party and Labour Party need to ensure they are there so that they can go to the Election with some genuinely populist progressive policy that will ensure Labour and Green voters rally and stop Judith Collins from becoming Prime Minister.

We didn’t survive a volcano, a terrorist and a virus to be rewarded with Judith Bloody Collins as Prime Minister!

  1. Judith Collins is representing dirty industries simply;- that’s why she is a climate denier as her paymasters demand she not support climate change; – that’s why she is a climate change denier;- it’s simple to see why now.

  2. Mitchell got demoted because he is the main leaker to Tova. Collins runs a tight ship with little tolerance for disloyalty.

  3. Gerry looks so chuffed. Like the cat that’s got the cream – lots and lots and lots of cream

  4. I wouldn’t be so sure re the blue dragons Bomber – word is they have decamped and moved over to Labour. The CCP rarely backs the underdog. Party votes in Auckland will be interesting on this basis.

    I do get the hint of admiration in this post and strangely think most on the left are now happy we will get at least a contest in 8 weeks time. Even Verity Johnson was pining for some attention from Jude much the way a catholic schoolgirl lusts after the boy from the wrong side of the tracks.

  5. Collins is good for our democracy, there is no other that can challenge Adern. Like it or lump it- thats the truth. I dont like Collins, but she is pure Muldoonism. Take that as you will. You cannot have a strong democracy with a weak opposition. Collins is going to do it- shes going to challenge Adern in a way no other can. Sorry to say it but thats the truth.

    A lazy, arrogant and too self assured govt is never a good thing.

    Pragmatics aside, Im looking at the policys and ideologies.

    Colins is not an ideologist but an opportunist. Which means she will dance and foil easily around the media. Jacinda has met her match.

  6. As we all know now, our media is totally saturating “news” websites with images of Judith Collins at this time. You’d be forgiven for thinking landed on the National Party website rather than an alleged independent and neutral news website.

    Along the same lines. Can anyone remember the last time they saw Tova O’Brien actually smile? Must be difficult to smile when you’re consumed with waging crusades against any Labour MP she sees as a soft target to go after. Her relentless line of “gotcha type questions” to Ardern at every press conference update during the lockdown was truly nauseating. It wasn’t enough for her to convict Ardern without a trial or evidence for allegedly covering up a farcical example of sexual abuse. O’Brien has not let up and wants Ardern’s scalp as her prize.

    Couldn’t help wonder how this alleged journalist would be interviewing Collins who is the sort of woman who would happily confront any journalist while they are alone and do what she’s famous for. Bullying. Collins would make life very uncomfortable for any journalist highlighting a picture she does not want highlighted. Does O’Brien have any integrity as a journalist especially when her own bias and comfort levels are at stake?

    I’ve attached a link from a news website today. Ignore the content apart from one aspect. The look in the photo of O’Brien while interviewing Collins. Looks like someone talking to their best friend or a person looking to get an autograph from an idol.
