DONT GET DRAGGED IN.



Every day some in the media announce the political death for Nat Leader Simon Bridges.

I wonder why.

As many reasons as  there are writers of such drivel with varying agenda.

"He doesn't present well on TV" Vacuous at best how did Labours most competent leader since Frazer go?
"He is almost invisible," Opposition leaders have this as a given not helped by a fawning media running anti Nat since ????
"Ardern has greater impact", sheesh what a revelation, who apart from some spasmodic moments from Hosking and careless attention to detail by a failing fourth estate  daring to call her out.

Those who watch Parliament, particularly Questions for oral answer where a shallow grip of fact is cruelly exposed will note how she is continuously "rescued" by a speaker well up in the stakes for worst ever, given temporary shielding by her Godfather Deputy PM with diversionary rubbish most speakers would immediately jump on but Mallard merely smiles through benignly, see her exposed all too often as shallow and ill-informed falling back on catch phrases and meaningless slogans.
Do what pass as Political Journoes give this exposure, well not often, very rarely and then edited to remove the worst of it

Of course the Government Coalition of N(Winston)ZF and his puppet led Labour, along with their perennial lapdog melons would love the disruption and uncertainty of a National leadership wrangle. It is their only chance to reduce the scrutiny coming on the monumental deficiencies of the appalling government foisted on NZ Inc by the Charlatan leader of the one man band. Note how his merry-go-round of representation goes on election after election as a protection measure and now the inevitable is happening before our eyes with the blatantly suspicious dodgy bag of money delivered by the never released "Coalition agreement" to Heir apparent Shane "porn" Jones in a never disguised, 'up you  the voter',  move, to avoid the 5% problem by purchasing a Northern seat. A move that has failed at least twice so far with defeats by Hone and Shane Reti.

Giving in to the chorus of fools will fail just as badly when the sycophantic Media arm of socialists united go to work on the shiny new leader while proceeding to gloss over the many deficiencies of the Coalition of Losers,  blinded by the Fairydust.

H Clark rolled Moore after only weeks in the job because he was deficient in condemning the so called "Neo Liberalism" of Douglas, immersed in a welter of poor polling she then lost to Bolger with the ubiquitous leader of Winston First doing his "look at me" with two phones, before beating Shipley who had rolled Bolger two years earlier in, 1999. Having seen off a pathetic coup attempt from Goff and Call me Sir in the meantime.

Most voters do not appreciate the divisions and uncertainty that always accompanies leadership spills whether successful (are they ever) or not.
National might not have a 'Key' to successfully deny the Fairy princess and Her Fairy Godfather but getting off a horse in midstream always has a risk of drowning, and that can extend to well intentioned 'saviours', also.

Fawning media.....lap dog melons... charlatan leader.....chorus of fools...sycophantic media arm of socialists united.

The only thing missing is "Socialist lackeys of the capitalist running dogs". Mao must be spinning in his grave now that you have usurped his position.

Such hatred in one so young and so reactionary.

Nothing to argue as to whether dumping Bridges would be good or bad, no surprises there.

Spending too much time setting up to mug me at Eric's I suppose.

Have you tried asking Phil Goff, David Shearer, David Cunliffe or Andrew Little? They'd quickly be able to bring you up to speed on how it works.

Were you asleep when Helen rolled Mike and then had years of polls worse than Bridges is presiding over, same for your list of labour losers with Labour around low 30% if not twenties.
Carry on with the dream of Jacinda suddenly becoming politically competent beyond the Fairydust backdrop currently being used as a dust sheet to shroud all the well documented ineptitude.
Kiwibuild, Child Poverdy, fiscal hole, slowing business confidence, benefit growth Auckland rail loop sinkhole expansion, Road toll, continued clamoring for money with associated strikes, (Not so long ago no strikes on my watch, who was that again), Dead rat shortages,. to name a few

No surprises you would like National to follow the disaster path of Labour when Clark resigned abruptly on election night, your depressing list of losers lasted an average barely above two years each, Bridges's now only just over one year in, Clark needed seven years to make progress. Her kicker BTW was a leadership change Shipley rolling Bolger!

If Porn abuse on credit cards is the answer then it was a somewhat obscure question, a scant perusal of Winston first affiliations of supporters must reveal a considerable number appalled at his stance on economics, immigration, oil and gas exploration curtailment, and cosying up to your beloved Melons to garner his baubles. All the while ignoring the foundation concepts he took with him from his national beginnings, including those from dear old Muldoon over Twenty five years ago. Wasted years for NZ Inc but very rewarding for the aforementioned Charlatan appealing to the blue rinse brigade of National and various segments of Xenophobia, racists and other misguided souls who wanted him to keep National honest not hand the country to socialisms world march.

Yes my world view is not the popular one but that is politics, mob rule often ends in a stampede and people actually die, not that that bothers committed socialists they only see necessary collateral damage. Those don't count as a tragedy do they, only statistics, refer to Uncle Joe, he had it sussed.

As a New Labour/Alliance voter at the time, I remember it well and felt some Schadenfreude over it. My point was that the media can smell blood in the water better than a shark can, that the resulting feeding frenzy isn't pretty, and that Bridges is finding that out the same as various Labour leaders did when Key was running things.

No surprises you would like National to follow the disaster path of Labour...

Well, obviously I don't wish National well, but that translates into hoping that Bridges remains leader for the next few years, not into hoping that he's quickly replaced by someone less disaster-prone.

Meh. To me, John Key was a glib, shallow grifter with no agenda beyond ticking the "become Prime Minister" box on his career development plan, which resulted in nine wasted years of stagnation for the country and its natural environment. Competence is a matter of personal perspective.

Hey Milt have you got fast internet?

NZ has probably the most advanced fibre optic infrastructure in the world - and can you guess who drove that?

John Key during those "years of stagnation for the country...".

Well fuck me purple - John Key invented the internet! And for all these years I was thinking it was Al Gore.
