Labour has no shame

Yesterday Maryan Street launched an attack on John Key in parliament.

Hon Maryan Street: How many business owners could have been given access to equipment and records that are vital to restarting their businesses, if time and resources had not been diverted to escorting the Prime Minister through the red zone on repeated occasions?

Hon JOHN CARTER: That is such a silly question that I am not sure how to answer it, other than to say the controller gives priority to the appropriate people to enter the red zone when necessary.

Hon Maryan Street: Then how does the Government explain its priorities to the people of Christchurch and the business owners of Christchurch, when repeated access for the Prime Minister appears to be taking precedence over access for business owners and central business district residents?

Hon JOHN CARTER: The controller is very aware of the needs of all the business people and business owners and is doing an outstanding job, as far as I am concerned.

The video shows how calculated this attack was.

Maryan Street, Phil Goff and Labour though forget that there are people watching what they do and how they comport themselves.

Here is a photo of Phil Goff and Helen Clark, both taking up the valuable time of rescue workers in the red zone just days after the quake.

Helen Clark and Phil Goff are disaster tourists

In fact Labour has a whole gallery of photos taken inside the red zone. In order for those photos to have been taken would have required a tour of the zone and the tying up of resources. At least John Key has the ability to make some things happen, it appears that Phil Goff was just taking some snaps for his disaster tourism album.

Then there is this video of Helen Clark the ultimate disaster tourist talking about her “tour” of the city. A tour that like Labour says would have tied up valuable resources. All filmed inside teh Red Zone and who was there holding Helen’s hand…Phil Goff.

To top off all that, I have spoken to journalists who were in Christchurch in the aftermath and the one thing they remember clearly was Phil Goff hanging around like a bad smell in the media areas near the red zone.

If Labour want to play politics in a very nasty way with the earthquake then they must weather the storm that we will bring down upon them for their crass behaviour.

    Good stuff, WO. F**k Goof and Clarkzilla for being disaster-zone tourists – getting in the way and generally being pests.
    F**k Clarkzilla for bringing her f**king U.N. behaviour back to New Zealand – getting in the way of people who are actually **doing something**. Piss off, Clark – we don’t need you and we don’t want you.

    Why is the head of the UN food programme being given escorted tours & airtime in Christchurch following such a devestating earthquake anyway?

    She’s got absolutely no right to just turn up & expect this type of favourable treatment in this country. As for Phil trotting along beside waiting for a titbit from the table that’s just pathetic Phil…man up!!!

    Piss off back to New York with Judith & leave us alone. I was just getting used to not hearing & seeing your distructive, vengeful, arrogant, spiteful self plastered across my screen every night.

    I agree that Clarkula and Goof should just go away and hide under a rock for all the use they are.

    However there is a real issue behind Labours attacks. Its a shame they have to get personal rather than actually addressing the issues. Just shows why they are a spent force.

    Business owners are understandably pissed off at not being allowed access to their properties to start getting their lives back together. Some of the hypocrisy coming from civil defence where they will not allow the property owners access but police and CD workers stroll in and out of the very same properties is disgraceful.

    As I see it (albeit from a distance but with locals providing the info) Brownlee is not doing himself or National any favours in the Christchurch electorates.

    Maryan Street comes across as nasty vengeful witch, perhaps the dopey dike should do some research before she tries to capitalise on the misfortunes of others.
    Two of the time waster disaster tourists notable for taking busy people from important tasks are Klark (who knows why, perhaps she wants to see if god can create a bigger disaster than her) and Phil someone or other, who follows Klark around like a dog on heat.
    Perhaps Maryan Street should spend more time representing her electorate, thats right doesn’t have one as she is list scum, just two words for you Maryan, FUCK OFF.
