Caution: Loud Whining Sound from Labour carpet-bagger

Labour MP Carmel Sepuloni has accused Auckland City Council officials of preventing MPs from her party from being allowed to speak on the main stage at the Pasifika Festival in Auckland today.

The Western Springs festival, which celebrates Pacific culture and features performers from several Pacific islands, involves addresses from Auckland Mayor John Banks and Prime Minister John Key, but Ms Sepuloni said it appeared to have become politicised.

“Yes, the Auckland City Council is running the event, so John Banks has every right to speak to those enjoying the festival, but for an order to go out to ban Labour MPs from addressing the crowds is just petty,” she said.

So Repulsion Camel is upset and has a whine to the MSM, but what evidence does she produce to support her claims? None of course, because she knows the repeaters will print her claims with the barest minimum of effort at garnering the truth.

Repulsion Camel also needs to tell NZ how pasifika she really is, or whether she just discovered her pasifika links when it became politically expedient. Perhaps she could explain in detail, I am willing to give her as much space as she wants on my blog, to explain just what involvement she had in the pasifika community (apart from being an islander living in New Plymouth) before her 20th birthday.

    I think Carmel’s a little confused. I think she thinks that Labour actually WON the last election, and is still the government. I also think that she thi nks that people might actually give a toss about what Labour MP’s might have to say.

    Sorry to shatter your delusions of grandeur Carmel, but as far as Labour’s concerned, the phone will be off the hook for quite some time to come.

    Actually she was born and raised in my home town of Waitara, much to my shame. While her father was a Samoan-Tongan-migrant who worked at the freezing works and was a staunch unionist and Labour man, her mother’s parents were Pakeha sheep farmers from Stratford and “resolute Tories”. (Shame again they couldn’t have set her straight). Did she obtain her sense of entitlement when she moved to Auckland I wonder? She certainly writes some nasty rubbish over on that Labour Party bogsite.

    She’s a list MP which makes her a trougher, and looking at her bio, troughing is some thing she is good at.
    Her current mission seems to be to stir up as much racial tension in support of Len Brown as she can, with the underlying message of “If your brown you owe Labour your vote”.
    Caramel now seems to be running Red alert – “Hamish – I’ll say what ever I like about John Banks – it’s my blog – you’re just a visiter to this page. As far as I’m concerned he’s a nasty piece of work and this city will be much better off when he’s not the one at the helm. If that sounds cocky…fantastic!”
    She seems to be a graduate of the “Tiger Mallard Charm School”, with this level of arrogance it isn’t hard to work out why Liarboar keep sinking in the polls.

    Sacnner – I blogged about that comment on Friday. Apart from the fact that she can’t spell (should be VISITOR), she comes across as arrogant and cocky, and Trev might be having words with her if she muscles in on HIS blog!!

    Lets see… Mayor of Auckland… Prime Minister of New Zealand…. No one would think either of them being there is strange. The Festival was in Auckland which is in New Zealand. Its kinda expected for them to make an appearance. The Prime Minister is a National MP sure but hes THE PRIME MINISTER. Why should there be a Labour MP there? Who is she anyway? I have never heard of her. Kicking up a little rage about it is just silly and makes Labour looks silly because of it. Its not a political evenT, its a cultural festival. No political parties were represented. The Prime Minister was not there as a National MP, he was there as the Prime Minister, doing his job. Stupid woman!
