Politicisation crisis confirmed



First of all, let's look at the irony of Winston Peters calling on the media for support, when it was only last weekend, they were vicious pirahna out to destroy his career.

More importantly, we have Winston Peters accusing the Serious Fraud Office of seeking retribution against him and his party NZ First after they supported Liarbour in shutting the SFO down.

We also have Michael Cullen, who is the attorney general, to whom the SFO answers to, not expressing confidence in its leader Chris Liddel.

Such government bullying adds to the politicisation of the civil service we have seen from Liarbour. Look how Peters and Cullen have turned on the SFO because it dare investigate Peters amid the claims of corruption. So unlike the police, which has acted as Helen's little helpers since the days Dear Leader lied to get rid of Peter Doone all those years ago.

We have seen the public service compromised and politicised under Liarbour. Don't work for the government if your boyfriend works for the Nats, but if you're a party hack, that's all fine.

It all adds to what Bruce Sheppard was warning about the other day. But more than this, it all feeds the gross corruption that we have seen under Helengrad, not just the activities of Winston Peters, but also how Dear Leader was able to steal an election in 2005 using taxpayers money and pass validating legislation to enable her and her regime to get away with it.

But back to Winston Peters and Michael Cullen. As Matthew Hooton says this afternoon, if the Attorney General has no confidence in the SFO, we have a problem, especially when the SFO is investigating the Foreign Minister!

Is pirahana in the new Maori dictionary?

...how Dear Leader was able to steal an election in 2005 using taxpayers money...

OK, now I'm confused. During the EFB arguments, you all told me that the amount of money spent doesn't influence the outcomes of elections. Or was that just the amount of money right-wing parties spend?

I've made the spelling corretion PM.

Parties shopuld be free to spend what they like, as long as they don't steal it from the taxpayer, like Liarbour did.

OT, but has Winston been too busy to run the Grecian 2000 through recently, or is he too broke to buy any?

Still don't get it PM?

money can't buy votes of electors

but it can, does, and most certainly did buy confidence and supply partners for Labour.

I prefer to deal with events that exist outside your head, anon.

While you're making corrections try getting the name of the SFO director right as well.
