I'm reasonably relaxed about this one - as someone said above, there's not too much difference between the main parties.

 

There are three people I'd hate to see in charge of anything important - Andrew Little, Russel Norman and Metiria Turei - and thankfully, they have all more or less disappeared.  Although I sometimes wonder whether Little could make a comeback under the Labour leader selection rules post election?

Ok, so bypassing as an inconvenient truth. All good

 

 

No different to those of you who bypass the inconvenient truth about the greens and Turei. Mentioning Turei seems to get many back ups.

 

 

 

Turei was wrong and is gone. so its over. Others have wronged and not gone, so no comparison

Surely even Labour wouldn't be that stupid? They are finally on to a winner with Jacinda and she would have to really stuff up big to squander that. The nature of politics being what it is, she will eventually stuff up in some fashion if she lasts long enough, but she doesn't strike me as someone who makes foolish mistakes.

I think she has already made a mistake or the party has. The wrong Deputy Leader was chosen.

She is not gone. All she really did was stand down as leader. And IMO thats not good enough.

Go on, name them?? Are you for real

 

If you read this thread through, you would already know that, someone posted a list of these, a couple others, me included referred back to that post, when whiners whines about this single Green MP who also was wrong.

 

Go on, look for yourself

Go on to Face book and watch the Jack Tame Interview with Paula Bennet Then read the comments  of which there are hundreds. Read some of the Linked articles

 

I think I have been living a sheltered life There are so many that there must be some truth in what is being commented on.  

 

Just how many of our politicians are involved in shady dealings

Why did you add in "beneficiary fraudster" ? Nitpicking? Or want to avoid the other dodgy/illegal/denied?  Your bias is overwhelming you

Yes, its not great. But its generally across the parties, which makes it silly when someone decides to cherry pick on Turei, and deny everything else from 'their" party.

I don't remember that

 

 

 

That phrase needs to be copyrighted by the group that uses it. Given they run our country they have poor memories

More and more hints about Bill English's less than open dealings are gradually oozing out. I still don't know who to vote for, but I sure am building a long list of who not to vote for.

Because benefit fraudsters are the lowest of the lot.
