Liarbour rats flee sinking ship


On the SS Helengrad , the ship is about to sink, and the rats are already deserting.
We have seen would-be leader Steve Maharey announce his departure for academia- and no wonder after the bosses are set for big pay rises.
And this, after Mr Tips recently noted Maharey would have some say over the university gaining some extra research funding.
He certainly has got his snout in the trough.
Now, Liarbour Party President Mike Williams says more MPs "than is required" for rejuvenation are set to quit the party.
Previously, he had spoken of 8-10 departing MPs as being the number for this.
So, let's get this right, almost 20% of the 50-odd Liarbour MPs is nececessary for rejuvenation.
Liarbour is obviously full of so much 'dead wood.' No wonder the ship is sinking. No wonder the rats are deserting.
Showing my charitable side, as Tracey Watkins noted some like David Benson-Pope are keen to hang on because they might have nowhere else to go. Let is hope they fare better than former Alliance MP John Wright, who had to return to panel beating.

It is easy to "prove" whatever you want. Just work out the answers you want and then design the questions to deliver the predetermined outcome.

These people usually give themselves away in the "solutions" they offer. Invariably they use the magic f word and call for more funding, as these "researchers" have done.

One of the main reasons we have so much social dysfunction is because of the vested interests that have built an industry around it. Have you noticed, they are the only ones allowed to offer ways of dealing with the problem. Anyone who comes up with something that might work gets shot down very quickly as they threaten the livelihood of the reef fish feeding on the carcase of dysfunction, whether real or imagined.

Get a social science degree, invent a problem and then call for funding. The best way to do this is to do a "survey". So it goes on.

And that comment was meant to go on the next post down.
