HDPA ON SHANE JONES

DPF over at Kiwiblog has posted an excellent article here from Heather du Plessis-Allan blasting Shane Jones for threatening utu ('best served cold' ... Jones) against whoever complained about his highjacking of the Northland Forestry Awards  Dinner to make a blatant political speech telling the audience that if they want billions of funding that they should vote for him.   

It is important to note that Jones attended the dinner in his capacity as a Minister of the Crown and not as Shane Jones MP.

We are entitled to ask just what sort of utu Jones is planning against Mr Pat Cox, a doyen of the forestry industry, who outed Jones for his OTT rhetoric ... a quiet word to his employer to drop him or else?    Chilling.

The response of the fairy princess was to tell Jones to take time out and study the cabinet manual.   A slap on the hand with a wet bus ticket from a Prime Minister scared to do what Prime Ministers Clark, Key and English would have done in a flash.    Out of her depth and it shows.

A bit tough on the Part Time Prime Minister Vet. Surely you know that only Winston can censure or sack Jones - Ardern has no say whatsoever.

That is probably in the 33 page Coalition document that no one is allowed to see.

The NZF coalition is probably the most rotten part of this supposedly open and transparent government. We still have no idea what the agreement is but it would appear that NZF MPs are untouchable by Labour and can just run amok as they feel like it.

John Key's masterstroke was ruling them out and not doing so was Bill English's biggest mistake. Ardern must dread every time Winston or Shane step up to a microphone as it so often ends in her humiliation.

Cut to the chase Johno.....tell us exactly what legislation that has passed in the house that makes the Govt. "rotten". Anything and everything else is arse blowing smoke and innuendo.
