Boom! Oh yeah. Well said Collins.
Wonder if she can be persuaded to run for Auckland Mayor?
Oh Dear poor boom boom, that will go down like a shower of shit.
There goes that surge of waleoilarmy pride again….
All credit to you Cameron.
This twitter thing may just take off, perhaps I should join, there is some funny shit on it…
Take on Judith at your peril….ask a certain duck and little man.
Credit given where it’s due. Keep up the good work Cam.
No offence, but every time I see your name I picture a country singer.
and I bet they called you Randy at school ;)
Well didn’t I walk into that one. But yes, once or twice, and not to forget Travis Tritt.
Yep, walked right into that. Travis Tritt – who??
unfortunate surname, brings out the poet in me ;)
Nobody, nothing, forget it. Nothing to see here folks, move along….
Well actually, I looked him up and I can see that he (apparently) does that “blue-eyed soul thing”, whatever that is, and, “You never take me dancing” is a bit of a hit in certain circles. He has bluesy “moans” with a sprinkle of southern gospel, and um I think you’re right – move along folks, nothing to see here.
I want the T-shirt of this
Collins for future PM.Knows a good thing when she see’s it.
Rather see her running the country than this hell hole of a city.
True, but was thinking until JK has had enough. Watching her sort out the wasters on Auckland council would be a fine thing
Big hammer, small nail.
Not so small nail – 8000 employees / $3B budget, largest council in Australasia.
And there’s nothing Collins (or Ruth, or Thatcher) could be better than getting it down to 100 “employees” and say a $20M budget.
You’re being a bit optimistic (unrealistic) there, but certainly trimming Councils down to essential services and removing the Maori Statutory Board and other racist based policies would be a great start.
Oh, get rid of the tree huggers on private land as well. Councils should manage the trees on public land – not private land.
Depends how much you sell. Is there really anything that needs to be done by a council that cannot be done cheaper and better in the private sector?
Show me a model where ratepayer services are fully privatised and work better? You know, the interesting thing is, is that Councils outsource most work to private businesses anyway, it’s just that they need 1000 dickheads to write and manage the contracts.
I can say that some Councils used to outsource consent inspections – think leak homes – they were no better than employees standing at the gate and giving something the nod.
Was thinking one term with Collins at Auckland, then she returns to Parliament in time to run for PM, hopefully by then Auckland Council would be all sorted with plenty of limitations imposed on her successors to prevent the wastefulness returning.
2014 – Naked Emperor is done and dusted sheppy. Sheepy will be in power by then
I thought that too, initially, but after some consideration I’m warming to the idea.
I would too, but I’d rather she stayed put for the time being.
Would you prefer another 3 years of Len, or break the cycle early so he does not become a habit.
And there in lies the problem. Would I rather she stayed to be a potential Prime Minister or leave and have a stab at becoming mayor of Auckland city. Given I don’t plan to stay here forever I think I’ll go for option A ;)
I’d rather Len jailed along with all the other communists, unionism banned, and the franchise restored only to those who deserve it.
No reason why she can’t do both…
Amen! A Thatcherite moment!
Who is Conor Whitten?
This lady needs to be PM.
I would follow her anywhere. (Warn her husband, and get a restraining order drafted)
Maybe you should put in a request to the GCSB to see your file, I’m sure you’re one of the 88.
Keith Locke and me, we’re brothers.
I can understand that point of view. She’s an intelligent, well spoken, powerful lady. Perhaps she has single daughters….
Having an opinion is wrong, now is it?
um….could take that both ways…. would you care to…expaaaaaaand?
Yeah – I was on the pro Crusher side of the argument.
That’ll teach me for writing stupid stuff and then walking away for two days.
ahhh funny. thought so!!
who was saying having an opinion is wrong? Nobody. Are 2 people not allowed to disagree with each other without having someone else put a silly politically correct left wing label put on it? Some people (you) read into things too much.
I was having a go at Conor Whitten’s last tweet.
I can’t believe everyone on here has mistaken me for a raging, bearded leftie :p
In our defence, you left it open to interpretation either way :)
Yeah – point taken :-)
Having the wrong opinion is wrong!
So proud to have Judith Collins as my electorate MP. My ex used to deal with her in a business capacity and had a huge degree of respect for her… Both strong, educated intelligent women. Gotta be future National party leader material right there.
And right on about WO’s cred, nice to get props from the top there!
She really should have added a “Suck it” and a DX crotch chop at the end for good measure.
