A right-leaning political commentator says the weeks since voting day have been “humiliating” for Christopher Luxon.
Saturday marked five weeks since Kiwis voted but New Zealand still doesn’t have a Government.
Hoots was on Newshub Nation sticking the knife into the boiled ham that is Luxon’s negotiation tactics.
To date the negotiating process has been like Game of Thrones, but with more incest and violence.
Low balling Winston and disrespecting him is the sort of play a CEO who is used to banging the table and getting their way has no currency in politics.
National have fucked up the negotiation process from the beginning because short of unleashing a tsunami of crony capitalism and privatisation using foreign property speculators, they don’t have an actual plan and being forced to negotiate with two political parties who do have actual political values is causing a right wing meltdown.
Hooton mentions ‘Humiliation’ at least 4 times and it has been humiliating for Luxon. He looks rudderless, not in charge and has done bugger all to calm the country during the interregnum.
Hooton hilariously suggests that Luxon is actually following this favourite politician, Jesus, and is in fact crucifying himself with humiliation so that he can cut a great deal and come back to life in 3 days!
Unfortunately National have Todd McClay in their ‘Brains Trust’.
I think anytime Todd McClay is considered part of a “brains trust” you are in terrible danger of becoming ironic.
Todd is part of a “brains trust” the way a brain hungry zombie in a maternity ward is part of a “brains trust”, in that you can trust Todd to eat your brains.
Beyond the personalities however is the fact TDB has been banging on about since the possibility of ACT/National and NZ First having to work together become more and more apparent which is that they are diametrically opposed to one another!
Winston won’t lift the Foreign Buyers Ban and National have built their entire economic package on their Foreign Buyers Tax.
David wants his race baiting referendum and Luxon doesn’t.
Winston wants a provincial slush fund, David despises it.
David wants tax cuts, Winston has ruled them out.
National wants tax cuts, Winston has ruled them out too.
They are bound only in their collective desire to bash beneficiaries, gang members and prisoners.
This is a Government born from a grudge fuck against Labour and the policy direction is a schizophrenic collection of grievance and anger that is utterly unworkable.
The reality is there are genuine questions marks over the actual stability of this buffet of dead rats.
Luxon claimed Labour, Greens and Māori Party were the ‘coalition of chaos’, so how’s the Axis of Dicks working out so far?
