Nasty Tamati calls McClay corrupt

Screen Shot 2016-04-29 at 4.43.24 PM

Tamati Coffey, bar owner, former weatherman and Labour Party windbag for Rotorua, has gone full retard on Rotorua MP Todd McClay.

You know those Panama Papers that tell people Aotearoa is a great place to launder money?

The NZ Herald has highlighted in the link below how Todd McClay put the IRD’s last review of foreign trusts and their taxes on ice, coincidently around the time John Key’s personal lawyer lobbied for him to do so.

A review that would’ve stopped our global embarrassment in the Panama Papers should it have been allowed to continue.

Mr McClay says the idea he was influenced by his boss’s lawyer “is insulting”, however when you read the corruption trail below, you’ll think being told it’s insulting is the insulting part.

Tamati has a problem with the alcohol industry


Tamati Coffey, Labour candidate for Rotorua and bar owner, is continuing on his rampage against sugar and pre-mixed drinks.

There seems to be no problem with multi-national corporations promoting sugary drinks that cause tooth decay, obesity and poor health, nor with global brands promoting pre-mixed alcohol to our youth binge drinking culture. Neither does international brands pricing these beverages cheaper than water or milk cause a stir.

So, the Labour candidate who promotes alcohol and makes money from the consumption of it has a problem with our binge drinking culture? This photo (above) and many others like it can be added to the roll call of hypocrisy as far as Mr Coffey is concerned.   Read more »

But hang on Tamati, didn’t you advocate for a sugar tax?

Tamati Coffey, Labour candidate for Rotorua, has written a lot on a sugar tax and uses the hashtag #‎forahealthiernz‬ as he goes on his anti-sugar crusade. He even endorses the “Water Challenge” where you drink only water for the month of April.

Tamati Coffey has a good idea, but I’m not sure his Labour pals will thank him


Tamati Coffey posted this on Facebook:

Hmmm. Yeah, we played by the rules and we had to shut our bar doors to a very busy Rotorua for two of the four days over Easter, plus we had to close at midnight on the Thursday and Saturday. This law harks back to the 80s, when NZ used to close on Sunday and TV was 2 channels that started at midday. It’s outdated and needs to change.

Quite so. But being a good Labour man I’m wondering if he will be taken aside and given a clip around the ears for that statement.

You see, shop trading hours over Easter are governed by something called the Shop Trading Hours Repeal Act 1990.

The Employment NZ website states:

There are 3 ½ days when almost all shops are required to be closed under the Shop Trading Hours Repeal Act 1990. These days are:

  • Christmas Day
  • Good Friday
  • Easter Sunday; and
  • ANZAC Day, until 1.00 pm on 25 April.

Labour candidate thinks government should prop up loan defaulters

Labour, and in particular Labour Rotorua, just don’t get how finance works. We’ve already seen Tamati’s little pearl of wisdom on how profit works.

Now they want us to believe a good government should never let people default on their loans. How could this possibly go wrong?
