This morning I woke truly refreshed brothers and sisters.
I dreamed in colour for the first time in 4 years.
Personal trauma, pain and horror had left my limbs.
I finally knew who I was going to vote for.
The beautiful Greens.
It had happened at the most unexpected moment.
Yesterday, the mighty Julie Anne Genter told a small business panel discussion that a bottom line for the Greens to go into Government with Labour would be their wealth tax!
It was extraordinary!
FINALLY there was a reason to vote Green!
They had brilliantly, for the first time in 3 years, realised that to play politics, you gotta throw a fucking punch!
Telling Labour, straight to their face, that if they want the Greens in, then a wealth tax so that the State can actually redistribute, was a bottom line!
What a master stroke of brilliant strategic nuance and genius. Labour’s bloated Party vote is cuddling up to those well heeled 45+National Matrons who have become Jacinda fans, meaning Labour’s actual left vote feels unloved, and a clear raid by the Greens could not only ensure a 5%+ threshold return, they could be needed by Labour to form a Government and the Greens would actually have done something meaningful in being transformative!!!!!!!
Finally a genuine, hand on heart reason to vote Green!
AND LOOK AT ALL THE MEDIA ATTENTION AT THE ANNOUNCEMENT! Everyone was talking about it.
I had been too harsh on those beautiful Greens.
I WAS THE ARSEHOLE!
I slept like a baby last night, all my angry blogs about them just being middle class identity politic fuckwits who had no strategic capacity whatsoever drained away from me.
I was at peace, my waters were still.
I planned to get up, drop my daughter off to school, catch a yummy organic bite to eat and prepare a huge blog calling on everyone to now proudly support the Greens. I would denounce my previous criticism and tirelessly call all on the Left to battle for the brave Greens…………………………………………………………….
………and then this…
Green Party co-leader James Shaw says one of his senior MPs misspoke under pressure when she said a wealth tax was one of the party’s bottom lines.
…ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
THIS IS THE REASON TO VOTE FOR YOU YOU FUCKING CLOWN!!!
WHY ARE YOU NOW WALKING AWAY FROM IT?????
I just, I don’t even.
I’m not even doing this anymore.
I’m stroking out here.
They need to go. Just go now.
These people are fucking muppets.
