I take no glee in watching the Greens meltdown.
All the Greens need to do this election is hold what they gained last election and allow the Māori Party and the Labour Party to do the heavy lifting (again) to get us over 51%.
That’s all the bloody Greens need to do, hold what you have.
The current climate of incompetence and rank ambition amongst the Green Caucus however risks a National and ACT Government if the Greens implode…
Green Party MP Elizabeth Kerekere has been chastised by party leadership after calling colleague Chlöe Swarbrick a “crybaby” in a text message sent to other MPs in error.
Party co-leaders Marama Davidson and James Shaw say they are disappointed, the message appears to go against Green Party values, and they are now launching a full internal investigation.
…Add the nonsense of starting a culture war on White Cis Males alongside the Posie Parker Pure Trans Joy, and the Greens will be lucky to hold onto 6%.
Let’s be very clear what was revealed by Dr Elizabeth Kerekere’s message.
It revealed a naked ambition by someone who has been rumoured to have been positioning a far more extreme woke clique within the Greens (I appreciate you might be choking on the idea of a more extreme woke clique within the Greens, but there is and they consider Marama not woke enough. I know. I know. I know. That’s how off the planet it is)
She was messaging co-conspirators who are involved in manoeuvring a new co-leadership team of Kerekere and Ricardo.
She showed utter contempt to Chloe, whose speech was a case study of how brilliant Chloe is, and when caught out hung up on RNZ.
She has an ambition far beyond her capacity and a Kerekere/Riccardo Co-leadershiop team would be a 3% Party.
Their naked ambition is a threat to the stability of the Party.
This ambition has seen Kerekere placed very high on the Party List provisional rankings that are clique influenced.
At this stage, if we are serious about holding the 8%, the Party must push for a new co-leadership team of Chloe and Efeso.
Those are the only two ready for Executive Power.
We should thank Marama and James for all they could do, and urgently form a new co-leadership team that doesn’t see Dr Elizabeth Kerekere or her co-conspirators anywhere near power.
For Christ’s sakes Greens, Make Chloe and Efeso the co-leaders, banish Kerekere down the Party list and get back to actually solving our problems rather than this bullshit!
I think a Kerekere/Ricardo co-leader Party would become farce level nonsense in a heartbeat. Like demanding tofu is offered up to Gaia at the opening of Parliament where the good Dr performs an interpretative dance routine naked level nonsense.
They have the charm of piranhas with less manners.
These are the wokest of the Wellington woke wokes and their level of self righteousness and self worth knows no boundary’s of human feelings.
And goodness don’t they land a lot of feelings.
A Kerekere/Ricardo co-leader Party would replace the Navy with a flax waka.
A Kerekere/Ricardo co-leader Party would declare the Sun was racist.
A Kerekere/Ricardo co-leader Party would have Wiccan Spell Casting in Te Reo listed as core school curriculum.
A Kerekere/Ricardo co-leader Party would actually open a Jedi Academy.
They have blown their cover and are now in a headlong dash to the membership voting.
Maybe we should all consider joining the Green Party right now so we can all vote.
You should probably do that.
So, here would be my top 5 for Green Party Members who want candidates who have the capacity to do the job in front of us to consider for their ranking.
1: Chlöe Swarbrick: She remains one of the most unique Political Leaders of her generation. Her oversight, insight and understanding of the process, system and solution based approach would unleash more genuine change in just one term than all the Green Party achievements since creation. She is a unique talent.
2: Julie Anne Genter: Our Transport system is fucked, our public transport infrastructure is fucked and the Trucking Industry do what they want. The only person smart enough to fix those problems and stick it to the Trucking Industry is Julie Anne Genter.
3: Golriz Ghahraman: She’s one of the smartest MPs in the Green Caucus, you need very smart people when making decisions. She has capacity to oversee many different issues happening all at once, she’s too much of a star player within the decision making process.
4: Fa’anānā Efeso Collins: He gives the Greens access to Auckland which they have never had. Fes is one of the best political leaders within Gen X, he is ready to be the co-Leader, doesn’t need training wheels and can bring a South Auckland vote the Green Party has never managed to win over.
5: Steve Abel: Steve is one of the m most important environmental voices in the debate. His activism is unquestionable, his values beyond reproach. What is most important with Steve is his intelligence on the climate change science. As a NZ Greenpeace spokesperson, he knows the tricks Industry use to hide their environmental damage. He would be essential
These 5 represent the best of The Greens and are the only ones I have any time for.
Rank them exactly like that from 1 – 5 and then place whoever you want after that, but those are the only 5 that actually matter and will be worth fighting an election for.
If the Membership are sick of the circus and want progress, those are the 5 best we have.
If the wokes who only see identity win, you will have a lot of people put forward who shouldn’t have any access to power.
TDB will be reviewing some of the candidates over the next couple of weeks and you can make you decisions after reading them.
Comrades within the Green Whanau. Let me be as a clear as I can be.
A National-ACT Government would fucking burn every single thing we hold dear to our hearts and desecrate it. We need candidates who have electoral appeal AND the intellectual capacity to do the job. The Top 5 I have pushed for here are those candidates.
Anyone else will fail.
Especially bloody Elizabeth Kerekere!
A Sustainable Eco-Village divided against itself cannot stand!
Dear Green Party Members: You have spent 6 years strategically fucking up, please, right when it matters, do the smart thing for once and make Chloe and Efeso the co-leaders.
You can all go back to hating me afterwards, just change the bloody leadership team now so we avoid a National/ACT Government.
