Sue Maroney is a drone MP. Failed six times to win an electorate seat; found wanting as Chief Whip and dumped and well remembered for an unfortunate incident when, during the flag referendum debate, she opened up on the owner of a holiday home flying the Kyle Lockwood flag as a rich prick flaunting his/her wealth and prejudices and conveniently ignoring the fact that her holiday home was just down the road. At least her erstwhile leader called her out on that.
And now per courtesy of TV1 News last night there she was out pimping for a refugee couple wanting to purchase their HCNZ home but finding the value of the property had increased to the point is was supposedly unaffordable for them.
So Maroney, ever eager to get her face on TV, is prepared to parade her hypocrisy for all to see. Point #1 Sue ... thought your once great Party was opposed to the sell-off of HCNZ stock per se so why are you going into bat for them and #2 given that I've listened to the angry one and his side-kick Twyford bang on about the government selling HCNZ properties at below the market valuation how can you possibly promote this as a shock, horror story?
Guess the side-bar to this is why TV1 News thought the story was worth giving oxygen to. Here we have a family properly housed and paying a below market rental for that privilege ... a property I guess any number of people would give their back teeth for. So they can't afford to buy it ... I can't afford to buy the property just down the road from me with elevated 270 degrees looking out over the BoI.
Sue Maroney hypocrite and TV1 an accessory to hypocrisy ... fits.
