LOOKING UNCOMFORTABLE - AND WHY NOT

The revelation that Labour MPs Chauvel and Mahuta are giving advice to the families of Mongrel Mob members in their attempt to stave off eviction from their State Houses and that advice has cost YOU and ME as taxpayers in excess of $500k in legal bills deserves comment.

No wonder that Phil Goff was running a mile last night to distance himself from the story ... no backing ... you need to talk to them.

And so they did. Chauvel "I was only doing it at the behest of two of my colleague MPs". Mahuta "mumble, mumble, mumble" ... let me out of here please.

Best advice. When you're caught with your fingers in the Cookie jar ... fess up. What they should have said was ....

'Labour has a history of helping the underprivileged. Look at Philip Field. These people have the same rights as all others faced with this situation. So what if their neighbours feel threatened by them ... threatened doesn't equal actual danger in our books and what's a bit of damage and mayhem between friends. This is a prime example of a National Party putting the boot into people they know will never support them. Well, we in Labour do.'

Another Labour f**k up.

If anyone asked Clayton Cosgrove for a comment, he might look even more embarassed.

'Labour has a history of helping criminals and terrorists. Look at Philip Field and our election rorting and our support for Hone (Kill Whitey) Harawira. These people have many more rights than anyone who owns private property or runs a productive business. So what if their neighbours are threatening to slaughter them and their kids ...that's just what they deserve in our books and what we really really hope will happen to 'em . This is a prime example of a National Party enforcing law and order and private property on terrorists and criminals.'

The mistake was the Housing Corp giving a reason, with 90 days no reason is required. It is hard enough being a landlord without the largest landlord not playing by the rules.

You ARE tongue-in-cheek there, aren't you, Vet?

Obvious pisstake wasn't obvious enough, obviously.

Maybe a tag for the slower people would help?

The actual story is here, and makes much less exciting reading than this National Party spin version of it.
