There's Another Way

Actors Equity has such a way with words.

Having singlehandedly sabotaged some $2 billion dollars worth of the nation's export income they now beseech the populace to cease pointing fingers.

In a statement, the union says everyone wants the same thing, to have The Hobbit made in New Zealand, and it's time to put emotion aside and move forward.

An ANZ economist has estimated the cost of losing The Hobbit at $2 billion.


Maybe they could consider taking positive and corrective action.

They might prevail upon Graceless Kelly at the CTU to issue Sir Peter Jackson with a written indemnity against all industrial action in the film industry for a period of five years. That's about what it will take to get the business back where it belongs - not some damn fool penny ante increase in tax write offs.

Warners will simply calculate the value of an extra $60 million tax benefit against the cost of potential union damage at close to or more than $600 million. They will go where they can get stability even if it costs a bit more.

When you think about it, that's the same thought process that makes a typical Kiwi home buyer take a three year fixed mortgage rate of 6% when he could have had a floating rate of 5%. He is paying a premium for stability and certainty.

But that simplicity is beyond the socialists dreamers of Unionland and Greenland who are united in their envy and hatred of commercial success.

In one respect, Adolf actually hopes the movie is taken away from NZ. Such a calamity might give NZers the backbone to support government moves to strip the unions and their craven Labour Party political wing of their unbridled power to damage the nation.

It's time for John Key to do a Thatcher.

He'd first need to grow a pair...

This is easily as sensible a suggestion as prevailing upon the MEA to issue a written indemnity against all redundancies in the whatever industry for a period of five years.

Well that's fine then Milt.

Off you go to whatever shithole in upper outer Uzbekistan gets the benefit of our unions' considered benevolence.

I agree with KG absolutely.

I do not think NZ needs to lose the Hobbit as the odious nature of Kelly's Kommies has been graphically displayed this week. Reading the blogs Kelly would need to be utterly stupid and unfeeling not to apprehend that she has stuffed-up big time. She has done the country a favour by exhibiting what a rotten piece of history Unions represent and all she needs to do to make amends is to migrate to North Korea to live out her life in her conception of Utopia.

PS Milt get out your passport, you are carrying her cases!

It's not about "hope" or anything

Commie Kelly could commit ritual suicide on top of Mt Victoria and it would make no difference.

They are unionists. There is nothing that they can do that would make any difference whatsoever.

N. Z. has. lots. the. Hobbit.

and the rest of the fucking film industry.

The least we can do is make sure it never happens again. Hard to see that when unionists, labourites, communists, and open terrorists of all flavours are tolerated in NZ - and indeed when communist terrorist parties make up nearly half of NZ's Parliament.

Kelly, Malcom, Ward-Lealand, Lawless, Castle-Hughes--all imbeciles. Big fish in tiny ponds that just got smaller. So much for the creative class, all they have created is an utter fiasco. How are they going to pay for their next jabs of botox now?

so which fingers are really pointing at the greedy ones, with index finger extended at the Sir Peter and his capitalist cohorts, or the other 3 pointing at the accuser?
Key needs more than the ability to grow a pair, first off he needs a vertebrae or 31 as most of the rest of us have.
