Helen Clark saving the world.

Heard Clark being interviewed on ZB a couple of mornings ago.
She stated that one of the main jobs of the UNDP was to raise people out of poverty.
She then admitted that they had had zero success in Africa but millions of people had been raised from poverty in China.

I guess all those hard working Chinese must be thankful that Helen is out there batting for them and the Africans will just have to wait for the next innings.

You're joking Lou aren't you?

The Chinese success is to do with capitalism, no benefits and not tax. Nothing else. It has NOTHING to do with the UNDP, and certainly pre-dates Clark in her role.

Stunning.

Oops, NO tax. Rather than NOT tax.

Irony is a strong point of yours obviously gooner. must be the association with arsenal

Well on the other hand Sage, I can certainly imagine Clark stating that and claiming all the credit. China is booming in spite of the UN, not because of it.

sagenz said...

Don't get me wrong I completely believe that Clark would claim credit, I just don't think Lou was believing.

I think that Helen Clark should visit New Zealand at least once a year, and no less than twice in election years.

Let is not run the risk of time dimming the memory and all that ...

Says it all really doesn't it. China tried to implement socialism, then they went down the capitalist road. Same country, same culture. Very different results. We could do worse than to learn from China.

No taxes for the rich.
No stupid social services, no fucking socialist health and education.

And a serious police and army that deals with socialists, unionists, criminals and all the rest in the only language they understand

Sinner goes 0-4 with his non-factoids! That's 'coz he's lamentably thick! What an eloquent voice for the right he is though.

This comment beautifully portrays what a pig-ignorant creep Clark is. Her comment disparages Chinese hard work and economic knowledge.

It's just another case of "world famous in New Zealand" - she had to say it here, because nobody anywhere else would give a rats what she says. And nor should we.

Stop picking on Helen.

I'll stop picking on Clark when she actually comes back to this country and is asked and actually answers some hard questions by the media. Not the feel good crap we get dished out.
