I have long described Labour as the Nasty Party. Perhaps though they are also stupid.
A reader emails:
You keep saying that Labour are the nasty party. ¬†I think¬†they are also the stupid party.
Last Saturday they had an asset sales petition outside Countdown in Mt¬†Wellington. ¬†I did not want to sign the petition, so on the way into¬†Countdown I walked at the far edge of the footpath away from them and¬†didn’t make eye contact. ¬†When I came out of Countdown they were not¬†occupied with other people, so when I tried to avoid them by walking¬†around them the man stepped in front of me and held a clipboard in
front of my chest so that I could not walk past. ¬†When I said I¬†disagreed with the petition and didn’t want to sign it the man shouted¬†at me rudely, and the woman laughed in a condescending and belittling¬†manner.
Since the were both wearing Labour Party rosettes, their rudeness¬†leaves me with a negative impression of the Labour Party.
I just regret that at the time I didn’t think to tell them that I will¬†most likely remember their rudeness when I next come to vote.

I was walking back home from Dick Smith on manners street in¬†Wellington up Cuba street when I got hassled by some lefties. Mana and¬†Ohariu people Power had set up an anti asset sales protest in the¬†middle of Cuba mall, badgering people for signatures while they were¬†going about their business. I was wearing a suit jacket for a friends¬†twenty first later this evening, so when I walked past, two¬†particularly ugly, nasty looking marxists began following me up the¬†street.
They started shouting “capitalist pig” at me, then “oi¬†capitalist cunt” then finally threatened to “fucking smack you piggy”,¬†all the while following me up the street. Just because I was wearing a¬†suit jacket. Just shows you what kind of civilized debate the left are¬†willing to have.
