IT JUST GETS WORSE FOR 'SILLY' COLIN CRAIG

See it all here.    Wots another $128,780 between 'friends'.   You might almost start felling sorry for him ... I don't.    A poor little rich man who, like crimdotcon, thought he could buy himself a seat in Parliament.

And some quite vocal commentators on this blog and others thought he was the best thing since sliced bread ... the messiah come to save us poor sinners.   Wot tosh.

"You might almost start felling sorry for him ... I don't."

I feel more sorry for NZ overall in that the political paradigm here has under the weak capitulation of John Key and the Nationals fallen to the forces of Cultural Marxism and Critical Theory, and is now pretty much a one party state of Progressivism.

The delusionally self congratulating Nats have no answer to the Marxist strategy of gradualism and have surrendered so much ground over the years they are now further left than any party has ever been in NZ.

The left own NZ and they own the National Party.

The thing about the Conservatives was that even though their leader turned out to be a weak and foolish man, they did manage to wedge open a small crack in the otherwise impervious Berlin wall surrounding speech and thought.

They offered for those who want it, one chance to avoid the suffocatingly orthodox thinking of the Progressives. One chance to loosen up the political blood in NZ's otherwise sclerotic veins.

As for the payments he has been forced to make by the fascist Human Rights Commission, maybe someone who approves of the amount can tell me by what measure something as subjective as "emotional harm" is measured.

There is many a manipulative woman who has made mincemeat of a weak man. Now there's such enormous money it it, expect a rush of such events.

I think the whole scenario is astonishingly crazy, and really, I don't see why any sensible businessman would even think about putting women on their payroll today.

No Redbaiter - when I first heard about the Conservative Party I was filled with brief hope but Colin Craig was clearly a fake from the get go - he never made the sale with me and I'd would be the constituency he was aiming for

The guy is a scuzz pure and simple - he makes my flesh crawl

Redbaiter he broke his own confidentially agreement, smeared a woman who was bound by it and couldn't respond - that is unforgivable!

I confess to suggesting at one stage a flake (CC) might make a better coalition partner than a charlatan (WP.)

I wuz wrong.

And how!

Poor Red ... doesn't understand the realities of MMP even though its been around for two decades ... slow learner.

We wish him well in his continuing journey to find an ideologically pure Party that will never compromise on its beliefs now that the Conservative Party has been consigned to the dustbin of history as damaged goods. It must pain him that his poster boy is revealed as a slightly deranged fruitcake who coned the gullible (including himself) into believing 'he' was the chosen one to lead NZL into the sunny uplands of a new era where anything remotely construed as 'progressive' (word undefined) is to swept aside in a totalitarian society where personal freedom means the freedom to agree with those who run it ... or else!!!!!!!!

I'll stick with NZL. Red can bugger off to North Korea ... everyone there is allowed to agree with the leader.

The point I always made about the Conservative party's value is this-

it is an agent of change. It doesn’t matter if they lack what it takes to form a government. What matters is that they give a platform to ideas that challenge the sclerotic liberal orthodoxy around which the major parties and their media cheerleaders are huddled. To my mind, anything that breaks this ideological death-grip is worth supporting.”

From a post on my own blog some years ago.

Have you been taking English lessons from Gravedodger? You old boys need to stay away from the claret.

Anon 7.32 ... thank you for pointing out that I was so carried away with that hugely creative writing that I left out the word 'be' ... some people enjoy being pedantic, others enjoy claret.

Red ... you still haven't demonstrated that you have any understanding at all of the realities of MMP.

Redbaiter said...

And if MMP is the root of the problem, then who is primarily responsible for its introduction?

Surprise surprise, the stupid easily duped National Party and Jim sellout closet commie Bolger in particular. The compromising coward who stabbed Ruth Richardson in the back.

We might as well just let Labour have control and get rid of John Key and all of the other traitors and surrender monkeys and start all over again. This time we don't spit on and trample all over the National Party's founding principles-

“To promote good citizenship and self-reliance; to combat communism and socialism; to maintain freedom of contract; to encourage private enterprise; to safeguard individual rights and the privilege of ownership; to oppose interference by the State in business, and State control of industry”.

You might sneer at the Conservative party and Craig may have been exposed as a weak fool but anyone supporting the sellout craven cowards who make up the Nat party today is in no position to criticise. They're every bit as bad, if not worse in their gutless unprincipled surrender to the left. And MMP has nothing to do with that cowardly ideological capitulation.

The Veteran said...

Red ... you don't even know your history (again ... remember when you argued that Syd Hollard was the first leader of the Party). The electorate voted for MMP when given the choice of a four options and voted for it again second time round. Your spin that it was National doesn't wash at all ... many of us actively campaigned against MMP.

You're pretty good at chucking insults and insults are no substitute for intelligent debate. National is a centre-right Party functioning in an MMP environment which forces compromise. You may not like it but that's the reality and your contention that MMP has nothing do with it shows you deliberately choose to disregard that simple truth.

And as long as minor party politicians don't opt for the acceptance of "baubles" over principles long may MMP reign.

The Veteran said...

Noel ... baubles trumps principles every time ... ask Peters.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Noel, you'll be in real trouble when they go after the bangles and beads as well.

I agree with Red, I usually do.

Personal. If the bloody human rights commission ever come near me with one of their crusades I will get the wepons out.

paul scott said...

I miswrite. Wepons against the Human Rights progrom means weepons. I cry in despair, hands up cover eyes, for a few minutes.

The Veteran said...

Paul ... then clearly you hold the view that rich pricks have a 'god' given right to abrogate confidentiality agreements. Makes the whole exercise rather pointless don't you think ... but then, to the true believer, the law is only there to be observed when its suits ... sigh. Is that why you live in Thailand.
