Spl Spl Spl Splutter Spit Spit

McCarten does himself little credit in today's collection of lies and splenetic abuse masquerading as political commentary. He usually does better.



So keen is this left over from the alliance (long dead and putrefied) to attribute death to the ACT Party that he rewrites the party's history and attributes to it the very same evil motives which saw his own party disintegrate - along with every other deluded socialist outfit in the world, from Russia to Britain, Australia and soon The United States.

Here's the first lie:-

Act was founded on the odious principle that human greed is the driving force of human progress and is to be celebrated as some sort of religion.

No Mr McCarten, I think you'll find if you ask people more knowledgeable than I about ACT, the party was founded on principles involving property rights and a person's rightful expectation to be rewarded for initiative and industrious effort. But don't let the truth get in the way of a lying and embittered ex party leader whose party died on him while he was in the saddle. Yes, McCarten is our last living example of political death.

Here's the next lie:-

When Act's gurus, Roger Douglas and Ruth Richardson, were running the country they conned the people

To my knowledge Ruth Richardson was a member of the National Party but don't let the facts get in the way of a lying socialist in full flight.

An the next lie:-

It's fitting on Friday there were two policies Act claimed credit for. The first was convincing National to give all employers the unfettered right to sack new employees.

Unfettered eh? Not true. The law is extremely fettered with provisions requiring all sorts of procedures to ensure employees are not dealt with unfairly. But don't let the truth get in the way of a lying trade unionist in full flight.

And here's the last lie, dutifully trotted out at the behest of the Left.

The second was Hide appointing unelected directors to run 70 per cent of Auckland's assets without consultation with the region's mayors, as he'd earlier promised.

Adolf has pointed out in an earlier post that in fact Rodney Hide DID CONSULT with the Auckland mayors. They were asked by him for nominations but failed to respond.

Matt McCarten is the classic case of the bullshitting left winger. A so called champion of the workers who can't get his facts straight, who spends all his working hours dreaming up salacious crap for his newspaper column (paid for by evil capitalists) while his workers who pay his union dues freeze their arses off in Count Down stores around the countryside.

I haven't read the whole of McCartens tirade but based on what I did read I sent him an email pointing out that:

ACT still had a party unlike his mate Anderton who was continuing to rort taxpayers despite being a one man trougher - or words to that effect.

Like you, McCarten is entitled to his opinion. At least he puts his name to it.

Unlike...oh say....you Mr Anonymous?

Ain't irony great? ;-)

Facts to counter lies, and put Finky in a Funk:
- The Alliance Party still exists, and contests every election. Unlike Act after 2011....hehe

- ACT's founding principle of "...a person's rightful expectation to be rewarded for initiative and industrious effort" sounds a lot like what McCarten said - GREED!

- Winston is the last living example of 'political death'.

- Roger Douglas is a current ACT MP, right? And Richardson may as well be. But you ignore the key point there - that they conned Kiwis, claiming they wanted to 'make things fair' for the little guy, when all they did was rob the poor to pay their rich mates.

- Name one provision under NACT's 90-day-sack-at-will bill that limits a bosses right to sack a worker without giving any reason? There are none. Which is what you filthy capitalists thieves want - to treat us all as your slaves.

- We only have Rodney Hide's word that he consulted - and we know how vehemently Rodders denied troughing on the taxpayers dime about his overseas junkets, aye? How's the credibility, ACT?

Your feeble spleen venting just shows the world how odious you are. Look forward to no MPs next time ;)

Mad Marxist.
P.S. The union recommends you avoid cold supermarkets by travelling to a nice warm holiday resort, perhaps Afghanistan? You'll have an explosive time...

Who owns the job? is it the Union 'official', the employee, the government, or the person who has their ass on the line, ie the busiess owner. This piece of legislation is merely a rebalancing back towards those who create the wealth that half the population sponges off.

says McCarten.

You say,

"To my knowledge Ruth Richardson was a member of the National Party but don't let the facts get in the way of a lying socialist in full flight."

Showing your lack of understanding. Your 'guru' doesn't have to be in the same party as you. You think McCarten doesn't know which to which party Richardson belonged? To call him a 'lying socialist' reveals your own shortcomings in the thinking line, rather than his.

Crikey! Forgot to click the 'anonymous' button!
Must be a stupid lefty!

Obviously if Douglas was a effete middle eastern dictator responsible for the mass murder and torture of thousands of political dissidents not to mention funding acts of terrorism then McCarten will hold him in veneration.

At least we're not exposed to McCarten's thinly veiled jew hating anymore.

Adolf has pointed out in an earlier post that in fact Rodney Hide DID CONSULT with the Auckland mayors. They were asked by him for nominations but failed to respond.

From the NZ Herald:

"Last night, Mr Hide said he had written to all Auckland mayors in May and June asking them to forward nominations to the agency setting up the Super City to be considered as directors. Mr Brown had not nominated anyone, he said."

Wow, so that Len Brown's just a bare-faced liar, huh? Er, no:

"Auckland City Mayor John Banks, North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams and Auckland Regional Council chairman Mike Lee have backed up Mr Brown's claim that neither Mr Hide nor Mr Joyce had consulted them about the provisional list of directors."

Maybe they're all lying?

Mad Marxist (anon) does make some interesting points. The Alliance sure does contest elections... you can usually find their results just below the Bill and Ben Party, various Independents and Social Credit. :) Nobody actually likes them anymore, its only base of "power" is in Dunedin where lifelong students and maritime unionists keep it afloat.

If you Alliance folk think that greed is defined by hard work and good pay then I am so glad you lot were not only wiped out electorally but that your ideology is now almost extinct.

And Mad Marxist/aka Bob.. I saw your comment on Dim Post with both your names :)
