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.
