Crusher Collins destroys while Jacinda grows & builds: What type of New Zealand do YOU want?

There really is a very clear choice this election.

Between an old battle axe of a Politician whose entire career has been based on spite, malice and dirty politics scandals who wishes to drag NZ backwards on almost every progressive front vs a leader who represents a new generation of Kiwi while being inclusive to everyone, whose leadership during a terrorist attack, a volcanic eruption and a pandemic has made us an international examples to be followed.

The choice is between Crusher Collins and Jacinda.

A politician who destroys vs a politician who builds and grows.

Judith is known as ‘Crusher’, Jacinda is known as Jacinda.

When a NZer of the standing of Dame Anne Salmond can see the threat Judith poses, we all should sit up and listen…

Anne Salmond: A Roman circus

Does the Opposition realise that our country is in lethal danger, and that a global pandemic is raging? Do they understand that at present, New Zealanders need calm, intelligent, trustworthy leadership, focused on the future and our collective survival?

Over the past few months, the Opposition has operated like a Roman circus, crying ‘wolf’ over a fictitious homeless man, trying to trip up the Government by leaking confidential medical information, and throwing one leader after another to the lions.

Now they have appointed Judith Collins, who talks about National ‘crushing’ the government and ‘taking back’ the country, as though New Zealand was their own private possession. As Jim Bolger has warned, pugilistic power-grabbing is about the last thing that most Kiwis want or need at the moment.

 

…Crusher as Prime Minister would be a terrifying prospect on every front from public education to public health to public welfare to public policing to public housing to public prisons.

In short, Crusher is a threat to the public.

Judith would get those borders open for her Chinese Business friends quicker than you can say Kauri Swamp.

National have put her in power because they were frightened and desperate, in doing so they have unleashed a politician whose divisiveness and garden variety bigotry demean us all.

National should be ashamed for putting in a leader as deeply flawed as this, just as they should be ashamed for putting in Todd Muller who clearly was out of his depth.

I’d say Judith is Muldoon in drag but Robert was never this muscular.

Crusher’s electorate is Mordor.

The threshold as to when Judith would declare martial law and what her definition of our civil rights would be fucking light years apart.

We MUST not allow someone as openly dangerous as Crusher into the position of Prime Minister.

Crusher Collins destroys – Jacinda grows & builds: What type of New Zealand do YOU want?

The irony in all of this is that woke activists foolishly made a huge deal about Todd Muller owning that stupid MAGA hat when the truth is that Crusher embodies the political revenge fantasies of Trump in a way Muller never could.

  1. This weekend it is dawning on the left that the right is suddenly energised and behind a leader that they know won’t let them down with more Key-based Labour-lite politics. There is also fear that for the first time National have a leader that MIGHT expose the weaknesses of Jacinda without being called a women-hating sexist. Before everyone starts remember the cult of Key – every leader has their kryptonite – Jacinda is no different.

    Level 9 is scrambling hence the MSM hitjobs over the weekend. Strategically this is a mistake – Jude loves a scrap and is prepared for this line of attack. Oddly Verity Johnson understood it best wondering why Judith doesn’t want to engage with the woke. Elections are won in the middle not the fringes and objectively you all need to see that and reflect on the policies that will start coming out.

    There is still time and ironically the shortened timeframe might just work to Judith’s advantage

    As Bomber has stated – you have been warned!

    • “This weekend it is dawning on the left that the right is suddenly energised and behind a leader that they know won’t let them down …”

      Frank, that’s not dissimilar to a real estate salesman explaining to a buyer that water they see running down the lounge wall is in fact an exclusive “Niagara Falls” water feature, not a leaking home!

      • Let’s just wait and see shall we – bottom line is we’ll know in 2-3 weeks time won’t we. You might be right, I might be right however there seems to be all of a sudden a fair bit of panic out there from the left and not the assured confidence of last week.

        Again the user pays quarantine will again be a vote winner for the middle – Labour was still getting feedback from it’s working group when Judith swooped in

        • Talk is cheap Frank, Judith can say all she wants but is unable to do anything now. The government has to make decisions respecting current rules so that can delay some decisions.
          What you forget is that daily news coverage shows events overseas with coronavirus & the obvious implication that it was only the current governments bold decisions that prevent the same crisis here. Think back to March 2018 with the terrorism in Christchurch where a worldwide Muslim backlash against NZ seemed possible except for the PM leading a community response of kindness that brought us closer together.

    • @ Frank The Tank?
      Where are you? Are you in AO/NZ? Are you an AO/NZ’er?
      Were you dispatched to spread dissent amongst us AO/NZ’ers? Because you’re sure not on the AO/NZ’s side I love to bits.
      When the National party falls apart and they will, nothing surer, and they lose their easy farmer money to Labour where most of the money farmers earn in foreign exchange returns to the farmer to be spent and invested locally and not hidden in some Panama or Cook Islands money laundry they’re gone. Done for. Aye Boys? Yeah, I’m looking at you, fuckers.
      The last time you’re ever going to see a natzo member will be in old copies of The Listener or on RNZ’s website where you can go @ Frank The Tank and get all misty eyed while thinking about watching a shipley, collins, clark threesome.
      collins is a greedy, dangerous fool with money in her veins. Lets not be deviated from those simple truths.
      When I read that collins is being endorsed by that flabby Rakaia fool in a frock, shipley. Dob in your neighbour shipley, the one who shares her little secrets with helen fucking clark, who herself is an on the run neoliberal parasite, you know, shit’s about to get real for sketchy old national and its cadre of greedy sociopaths.
      Writing of sociopaths, check this link out if you haven’t already.
      Scary, scary stuff.

      “Portland mayor demands Trump remove federal agents from city.”
      DHS goon squad acting on trumps command who’s no doubt acting on corporate commands and I can guarantee his little orange fingers are in here, fiddling around with us.
      Are you one of his little orange fingers, fingering away @ Frank The Tank?
      https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jul/18/portland-federal-agents-protests-trump-mayor
      Excellent Post imo @ MB.

      • Yep Country Boy I agree 100%

        Frank is a National party ‘cling-on for sure.

        A similar sounding personality as Crusher Collins eh?

  2. Quoting Midnight Oil on the new school of political diplomacy: “If you disagree you get annihilated.”

    Trump’s attempts to hang on to power and ‘annihilate’ his political opponents are, of course, progressively ‘annihilating’ the perpetrator of the mad policies.

    I guess we can look forward to ‘Crusher’ attempting to implement insanity on a par with Trump, and everyone paying the price for that utter madness. Yet more squandering of precious resources and yet more degradation of the environment. And that before the gnats even come up with an election campaign.

    Thinking more about the gnats, oh for some ‘fly spray’ or a ‘fly swat’. Put us out of our misery, and them out of theirs.

    Meanwhile, in the ‘greatest nation on Earth’ being made ‘great again’ everything is just ‘great.

    ‘Portland mayor demands Trump remove federal agents from city

    People detained far from property agents were sent to protect

    Trump looking for a confrontation, says governor’

    …’Portland mayor Ted Wheeler earlier demanded the agents be removed, after some detained people far from the federal property they were sent to protect.

    “Keep your troops in your own buildings, or have them leave our city,” Wheeler told the president at a news conference on Friday.

    The Democratic governor, Kate Brown, said Trump was looking for a confrontation in the hopes of winning political points elsewhere, and for a distraction from the coronavirus pandemic, which is causing rising numbers of infections in Oregon and across the nation.’…

    • Bg
      ‘Jeepers’ and ‘fella’… Jesus Christ! The intellectuals are flying around their hive today. Must be going to rain?
      Do you and Frank The Tank have a ‘thing’ going on?

      • Haha. But you took the bait Countryboy! Obviously only the ‘intellectuals’ (like your good self) need have an opinion and us proletarians should just shut up and do what they’re told hey?

    • Really??? Is that all the tories have got now..??? Nothing left but chapter 3 of the school bully manual.. That’s the “meaningless trash talk” chapter to those who had better things to do..

  3. Bloody well said Martyn. -you said it all.

    “There really is a very clear choice this election.
    Between an old battle axe of a Politician whose entire career has been based on spite, malice and dirty politics scandals who wishes to drag NZ backwards on almost every progressive front vs a leader who represents a new generation of Kiwi while being inclusive to everyone, whose leadership during a terrorist attack, a volcanic eruption and a pandemic has made us an international examples to be followed.

    Done & dusted.

  4. Great piece Martyn,

    Right on point.

    We should never lose sight of the fact Adolf Hitler was once a very popular leader seen as Germany’s savior.

    What percentage of there being Chinese interference in our democracy over the next two months? 100% would be accurate.

    The people most excited about Collins being the National Party leader are Chinese, especially the CCP.

    • Well Hitler did save Germany from the high unemployment and hopelessness that characterised the country after the French demanded unpayable reparations and the government [of the early 1920s] saw the only way out as printing money…thereby triggering hyper-inflation. He did get the factories working again…only many of them for the wrong purpose, as the German people were to discover in the late 1930s. And the restoration of national pride just went way too far, of course, and morphed into utter arrogance.

      I don’t think the Chinese are at all bothered who is in government; theirs is a long-term strategy of conquering via economic dependence on $2 shops and imports to The Warehouse, Mitre 10, Briscoes and Bunnings etc.

  5. I think overestimating National have a coherent plan going forward to the election would be a mistake.

    Their reputation for being well rehearsed and scripted went out the window the moment that ridiculous transport announcement was made. It was as obvious as the weekly changing National Party billboards that they simply made that up with no intent or idea on how to make it happen. And God knows what must the combustably dry Paora Goldsmith thought of a throw down $31 billion commitment that hasn’t even been costed. I’m picking some colorful te reo to whoever was listening, that’s for sure.

    Judith is so winging it and a desperate National are full of shit, that much is clear.

    • ‘Judith is so winging it and a desperate National are full of shit, that much is clear.’

      I totally agree.

      Next step in the campaign: throw a few more National dissenters under the wheels of the bus and try to defecate some of the shit they are full of onto the nation whilst pretending to clean it up.

  6. The hardcore “National until I die” brigade will certainly vote for her. She represents the kind of reactive nationalistic politics that they know and trust. The nastier she gets the more they will like it. There are many of the rabid right who still believe National was robbed at the last election. Neither Bridges nor Muller were nasty enough but now they have someone who has few political scruples in putting National back into its rightful place as the default party of government.
    But Collins’ Muldoonist bullying tactics will leave the soft and floating National voters distinctly uneasy. They have seen the benefits of the politics of inclusiveness and kindness over the COVID-19 crisis and Jacinda has earned a lot of respect for her steadfast leadership from these voters. They may not be enthused about Labour’s ability to move on but they also could comfortably live with Labour winning a second term.
    The soft Labour vote will be hardened.
    The left despise Collins. To them she represents everything that is corrupt, dirty and malicious about politics and they will be determined to do what it takes to prevent her becoming prime minister. The trap is that they might spend too much time combatting Collins that they appear to be embracing negative politics.
    Labour does not need to get sucked into negative gotcha politics. Their best asset is their leader. They have been only a mildly progressive government over the last few years and they certainly must step up their their game to meet the challenges of post COVID NZ society.

  7. Labour construct
    National destruck

    It has always been this way, we only need to look at how National have ruined the Superannuation at every election since Muldoon.

    They have a lot to answer for.

  8. “another worry is that the global and NZ Media are now using reverse psychology on us” as they try to make those responsible for our global problems; of climate change and job losses look accidentally caused.

    *such as road freight industries who emit massive amounts of climate emissions as ‘the worst climate change polluters’ https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/421506/whangarei-floods-tow-trucks-help-travellers-sewers-leaking

    *and now the corporations who are now killing our jobs, actually are being made to look like our saviours who care about our loss of jobs; – but studies show that they were the one who automated industry doing away with jobs, such as Microsoft.’’ https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/world/421514/world-faces-staggering-jobs-challenge-says-microsoft-president

    Here are two such sites the media portray those industries as “the good guys” helping us now in small ways” after they caused the problem in the first place but not pointing out their harm caused to us so they only show the good side and not the bad side. “reverse physiology is being used on us.”

    Is this Crosby Textor showing their wares again for the toxic National Party???

    • Disaster/exploitation capitalism -“We know you are dying of thirst. Would you like to buy some water?” plus blame the victim -”You didn’t try hard enough, that’s why you are poor!” plus faux surprise -“We could never have anticipated that happening!” plus freedom of choice -“We didn’t force you to eat the junk food that has made you so ill.”

  9. “Crusher Collins destroys – Jacinda grows & builds:”
    National always destroys, every time they get into power – Labour always grows and builds every time they get into power.

  10. Warning! Warning! Warning!

    The Electoral Commission will be in touch telling you the great Collins graphic should have all the right info on it as it’s election advertising.

  11. Judith will come out swinging on Tuesday in, truth is she is so winging it, I can guarantee she will hit the canvas next week -she is a ballon full of hot air that can be popped 🙂
    So whats your pick Judith’s attack lines will be on Tuesday?

  12. Crushers attack lines will be that “Jacinda is all full of piss and wind” as that’s what ‘Crusher (Judith) Collins used on Winston Peters today, the press said she described him as.

  13. Well Nationals brilliance on show!

    When National promise roads and tunnels not funded, to be built in 2030 -it is called “VISIONARY”

    When labor progress light rail and trickery stops it- they call it “GHOST TRAINS”

    LOL Judith’s “alternative facts” right here in Atearoa, Trump in a skirt!

    • Exactly the benefit of a corrupt corporate media that is basically a propaganda outlet for NACT.
      Full spectrum propaganda comes to mind.

  14. ” National should be ashamed for putting in a leader as deeply flawed as this, just as they should be ashamed for putting in Todd Muller who clearly was out of his depth ”
    Judith will do enough damage to ensure there is no Labour majority in the parliament.
    MMP elections are always finely balanced so expect National to recover the ground they have lost as the threat of Covid slips from the public’s memory.
    Judith’s campaign will harness the votes of the majority of the right wing including a number of fence sitters who were leaning in Jacinda and Grants direction.

  15. The youth vote will be interesting. Last year we had all those climate change protests, if they are now of voting age and actually get out and vote, then it could be very telling

  16. I must say that compared with the last 3 nat leaders Judith looks like she is revelling in the prospect of the campaign. She is happy and it shows . This if nothing else will carry some disappointed national voters.
    But what her leadership means for the election could be anyone’s guess. Let’s see what the inquiry comes up with. My sense is that Muller Kaye and Adams have pulled out because they could not stand the dirty politics and lies they had to tell to cover for the operatives behind the scenes.
    I am predicting that Muller will also resign from politics at the end of his time out.
    Judith on the other hand I think is in her element with the undercover operations. I bet she knew all about the leaks; all about the British ladies travel plans with the virus and no test, the runaways,the lot.The inquiry could be her finish,but she obviously feels secure or she would not look so chipper.

  17. Shelley put it best:
    “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings.
    Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair.”
    It looks like Ozymandias has taken over the National party.
