Extreme Treemendus Stupidity

Adolf deplores the folly which is the ETS - no matter whose version. It is a disastrous nonsense based on entirely spurious junk science which every day is further debunked.

Yesterday saw TV3 run a story which was picked up by one or two lustily lame brained blogs.

Nick Smith has given away the DOC estate to the Maoris. Or so the story went.

In vain did Adolf seek some reporting in the egregious Herald on the subject. Perhaps Mr Murphy fears being sued by Ngai Tahu so has decided to set the story to one side. The Bros are rich fullas now, eh Tim?

Not so derelict however are the people at Stuff. Here we see a good report on the events leading up to the fuss made by TV3 about claims National is about to give away vast swathes of the conservation estate to Iwi in return for the Maori Party supporting National's version of the biggest pile of bullshit since tulips became common currency.

It turns out no deal has been done. Negotiations are underway though and it seems Iwi might be permitted to crop some small parts of the dock estate. That is to say, plant the land in pines and harvest the trees when mature.

That does not seem to Adolf to be particularly unreasonable or noxious. There is no evidence to suggest they will be given title to land. Minister Smith says other interests already enjoy similar arrangements but these cases are not identified.

Politics is all about the art of negotiation and if Adolf were in the National chair on this one he would be locking in Maori Party support for mining the DOC estate in return for the aforementioned largess.

Then you could watch Goff swallow his Adam's apple and the Greens spew blood.

More cheerleading for the indefensible racists of the Maori Party and the cowardly, devious Nats Adolf.
Crusader Rabbit is obviously one of the "lustily lame-brained blogs" you refer to, since we've put up a post highly critical of the whole scam.

Lame-brained perhaps...but we still recognise lack of principles when we see them, even if you're so blinkered a principle could bite you on the arse and you'd fail to recognise it.

KG said...

Why not man up and come into CR to argue your point Adolf? Hmm?

erikter said...

Adolf, when will you stop defending the indefensible?

Admit it: your beloved National Party is stuffing us around with the ETS.

Stop cheerleading and take a critical position.

It is evident you people can't read.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

KG, as a matter of fact no. I didn't see you blog post on the subject.

It is not surprising that the Nats would stoop to accommodate the racist party but it still avoids the real question: What is this about? Carbon credits for what? Carbon as a subject in the climate change non-debate. This absurdity really does defy belief.

Only a matter of time - which is a good thing.

Fuck the DOC estate - stupid lefty deinal of property rights. ACT & the Maoris should do a deal - say 20% goes to the maoris, the rest gets sold off - end of story.

KG said...

Okies Adolf, My apologies for jumping to that conclusion. I just didn't see it mentioned elsewhere when I saw you post go up.

I can streamline the ETS, rather than send out money to russia we just stand around the toilet and flush 1/3 of our paypackets every week.

Just as effective and cuts out the middle man.

KG said...

But the middle man is the whole point of the ETS Murray..;-)

Murray said...

You have correctly identified the point of my comment.

Follow the money, not the claimed goal.

the bottom line is away from us and towards someone else. Personally i'm getting a bit tried of our elected custodians playing that game.

Adolf: you write ...it seems Iwi might be permitted to crop some small parts of the dock estate. That is to say, plant the land in pines and harvest the trees when mature.

...and then want to claim there's no significant news story there? Seriously? If it were a govt run by Goff that was buying Maori support with conservation land, you'd be screaming blue murder and complaining about biased media not reporting it widely enough.

Climate change has always been about wealth redistribution, international government, loss of sovergnity and controlling capitalism.

In NZ we are just going to cop a double wammy, shipping money offshore and pandering to the racist Maori Party.

Still waiting for them to throw Harawira out...!!!!

Well no, Milt. But I would like the idiot minister in charge of this shambles to come clean and tel me who it is who already has share cropping rights on parts of the DOC estate.

Yea, away from us to the bloated capitalists in the form of Enron and Al Gore (and probably others too)

Adolf - no one has share cropping rights on parts of the DOC estate. Nick Smith just made that up, just like he told parliament, wrongly, that Australia has banned anyone cutting down trees.
