SUE MARONEY AT IT AGAIN

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.

Must you continually propagate myths.
We been there and she wasn't.

Gueez Gerald ... you mean she doesn't have a holiday home or that she has one but it's not just down the road?

Nothing at all about the substance of the post I notice.

She really is a plonker and a not very bright plonker at that.

So she has a holiday property at Coromandel but the property of concern was in another region 2hrs away. Veteran you really should get the facts right before you go in support of the Bay of Plenty National candidate who forced the tweet into the public arena.

OK Anon ... not down the road then and it's all Todd Muller's fault (MP not candidate ... get it right) for having the 'gall' to point out her hypocrisy.

Nothing on the substance of the post then ... figures.

Sue Moroney's holiday house is in Waihi Beach.

Waihi Beach s loosely described as being in the Coromandel, but is the northernmost extremity of the Western Bay of Plenty District Council.

Yes so you said back in March.

"just down the road" in Australia could mean 100 yards or 1000 Kms but here in NZ it's accepted as meaning a short distance down a road not a 2 hrs drive.

Your correlation of places and council boundaries is irrelevant.

Isn't the irony here the fact that a refugee fleeing to New Zealand for the better life is in the same trap as the majority of young New Zealanders.

The house pictured in March is at 55 Brighton Rd, Waihi Beach.

Apologies for any earlier confusion.

Gerald, where was the house that was flying the flag?

@ Gerald:

Veteran's first paragraph provides context for the post.

"...conveniently ignoring the fact that her holiday home was just down the road."

Your comment - "Must you continually propagate myths" at 3.02pm seems to contradict Veteran's belief that the flag-flying house, which was supposedly in Waihi Beach, was very near Moroney's (pictured in March). That house is definitely in Waihi Beach, which would confirm that Veteran then, and now, is correct.

If you have evidence to the contrary, please produce it.

The Donald rick-rolled the media so beautifully:

Thinking he was about to make a mea culpa on the birther issue, instead, they were suckered into covering nationality Trump being endorsed by a legion of decorated military veterans.

Together forever we two
And don't you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you"

@Gerald at 5.52pm:

Thanks for conceding.

The Veteran said...

No Noel ... the irony is that a refugee fleeing whatever is being looked after by the State to include having his rent subsidized by the taxpayer and plonker Maroney is too dumb to see what a prize prat she is by yet again demonstrating her hypocrisy.

Young NZrs have always found it difficult to buy their first home. I did mine on two mortgages with the interest rate on the second at a tad under 19%.
