Dodgy Socialist Dam Slammed in Farmer Magazine

Fenton-Young-un

Regular readers will know that the extremely dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council, lead by Chairman Fenton “Jong-Un” Wilson, have been promoting a dodgy socialist dam in Hawkes Bay.

These ratbags want the taxpayers of New Zealand and the ratepayers of Hawkes Bay to fund a dam that will make money for 150 farmers and cost the rest of us.

Now an eminent economist and former Head of Dairy Policy at the Ministry of Agriculture has pointed out exactly how dodgy the socialist dam is. The whole article is worth reading, but for those short on time there are some absolute cracker quotes

Fraser said the paper sought to find out if lessons from the “unmitigated disaster” that was the Clyde High Dam on the Clutha River applied to the Ruataniwha Proposal, and what those lessons were, and had they been heeded. The paper said the arguments presented in support of the Ruataniwha scheme were “eerily familiar” to those put forward for the Clyde Dam.

And

“The notion that the Ruataniwha scheme was a regional, let alone, national game changer, was “illusionary” given the economic evaluations commissioned by the regional council’s own investment company showed the entire project had a net present value of minus $27m when discounted at the public sector discount rate of 8% over 35 years”

Labour’s home wrecker candidate rinsed in gay ute country

Anna “Marge” Lorck got soundly beaten in gay ute country, with Craig Foss winning on the night by 5800 votes.

The tip line has been running hot with more Marge stories, and how she is graceless and undignified in the campaign.

Labour’s Tukituki candidate Anna “Marge” Lorck has really embraced the Vote Positive slogan.

She is sledging Craig Foss on twitter.     Read more »

Does Alastair Scott Actually know what his electorate boundaries are?

Otane

National’s Wairarapa candidate, Alastair Scott, has had to defend himself against accusations he doesn’t live in his electorate so can’t vote for himself.

Mr Scott confirmed during a radio election programme featuring himself and Labour candidate Kieran McAnulty that he is enrolled in Wellington Central, his primary residence being in Kelburn where he lives in a rented home with his partner Robyn Noble-Campbell and three of the blended family’s six children.

So he will be casting his party vote for National and his electorate vote for Paul Foster-Bell, the National Party’s choice to try to unseat Labour’s Grant Robertson.

Is Craig Foss getting advice from Scott Simpson?

3f354a8b9db4fa028c7a9b8e8023582638fce844_620x310

As regular readers will know Scott Simpson is a long time friend of mine and perhaps the longest term friend in the current National caucus.

There hasn’t been a donnybrook in National politics that hasn’t had the hand of Simpson in it. He is a master of the dark arts.

Being election year you tend to get a lot sign vandalising, it is certainly something candidates have to deal with.

It is also a great way to get positive coverage from a negative event. It certainly worked well in the old Eden electorate days with Scott Simpson marshalling the troops for the running battles in the streets around signage.

The fire engine used by Labour’s Napier candidate, Stuart Nash, is the latest political prop to come under attack from vandals.  Read more »

Idiots to the left and Fools to the right in Hawkes Bay

Homewrecker Anna Lorck is upset because Craig Foss had a holiday in Hawaii.

Obviously the memo from David Cunliffe about staying positive and not sledging was on the same courier truck as the Party Vote signs for Napier with David Cunliffe’s photo on them.

Meanwhile, in the neighbouring Tukituki electorate, Labour candidate Anna Lorck said sitting MP Mr Foss’ family holiday in Hawaii last week shows he’s “too relaxed” about the election. Mr Foss denied the claim,but said his family always came first.

Ms Lorck said Mr Foss was “lying back in his deckchair and drinking pina coladas” on the tropical island while she was busy on the campaign trail.

Mr Foss confirmed he had spent “a good week” with his family at Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii, up until Wednesday, July 16.

“We had a family holiday.”

However, he denied the holiday showed he was too relaxed about the upcoming election.

“I work hard for Hawke’s Bay families and I am backing the Bay each and every day.

“So much for Labour’s pledge to not be nasty.”

I’m not sure politics is where a homewrecker like Anna Lorck should be. Here she is having her own tropical holiday. Read more »

Socialist Ratbags running for National in Wairarapa & Tukituki

Certain National candidates disgust me. People who believe in corporate welfare or subsidies are the top of the list, as they are basically socialists dressed in blue.

Homewrecker is totally shameless

Labour’s Tukituki candidate, Anna “Marge” Lorck just keeps getting bad news.

Again she is in the Hawkes Bay Today with a photo of her with John Key.

A former campaigner for Tukituki National MP Craig Foss says Tukituki Labour candidate Anna Lorck knowingly supported National when she volunteered at a National Party base during the 2011 election.

But Ms Lorck maintains she was never a National Party supporter.

The election-day organiser of Craig Foss’ campaign team in 2011, Jo Harvey, told Hawke’s Bay Today she approached Ms Lorck to volunteer on the phones of Tukituki’s National Party base on election day because she was on a mailing list of National supporters. Read more »

Labour’s Kaikoura Candidate wants recreational fishers to have licenses

When you have a broke party and a dead set useless leader all sorts of mistakes occur.

Labour selected a home wrecker, Anna “Marge” Lorck who helped out on Craig Foss’ Tukituki campaign in 2011.

In Kaikoura they selected a woman who seems to want to piss off the entire recreational fishing fraternity by introducing licenses for them.

Most controversial was Labour’s Janette Walker, who proposed a licence for recreational fishers in the Marlborough Sounds as a way of funding a public advocacy group.  Read more »

Anna Lorck is a prize manipulator

We’ve looked at Anna’s shenanigans in the past when we uncovered her National Party sympathies, and it is pretty hard to deny in the face of photos like these

But she is just a bit of a leech really; adjusting her attitudes and ideas to the circumstances.   Read more »
