JT’s problem with the poofs

via the tipline

There are a number of rumours cycling through the tipline about Waitakere and JT’s membership application.

John Tamihere it appears is having a few issues with re-joining Labour so that he can take on Paula Bennett in Waitakere.

it seems that the rainbow faction is actively blocking his membership application. His application has been escalated to the National Council.

That particular course of action though is fraught with danger with the General Secretary being Tim Barnett and key and influential members of the National Council are also strong members of the rainbow faction.

Their grip on the party appears particularly tight and red-blooded Kiwi blokes just can’t get a look in.

It looks like JT’s forthright assessment of Labour’s front bench went down like a cup of cold sick, with one of those he affronted a loyal member of the rainbow faction.

This has all the hallmarks of being very messy with the rainbow faction treating Labour like some sort of exclusive single interest politically correct sauna club.

    Can’t believe Labour would be so stupid – if you don’t want JT as a candidate you just exclude him at the selection stage by bussing in union members. Having a big stoush over a membership application makes your oarty appear factionalised. It may be factionalised, it just shouldn’t be visible.

    • Gazzaw

      Obviously Michael there is a faction(s) within labour that wants to make this issue public for their own ends. Either the pansies or the feminazis – take your pick. Labour can’t help haemorrhaging in public, it’s their national sport.

    But Labour is a exclusive single interest politically correct sauna club

    Kind of odd when Whale’s calling for H2 to come back & deal with this kind of thing before it hit the papers like the old days…

  • Scanner

    Labour certainly stand for the working man and a fair days work for a fair days pay – YEAH RIGHT

    Kick the carpet munchers and pillow bitters to the kerb, these deluded fairy’s aren’t the solution, they are actually the problem.

    • Patrick

      Problem is the “biters & munchers” want to dominate the debate because they think it is all about them, they are somehow more special than the average Joe (or Jane) Blow.

      Their sexual orientation does not give them any more rights over & above anyone else.

  • pukakidon

    These types can be particularly bitchy and they never forget, god forbid if you ever scorn one, hell hath no fury. They have totally taken over the Labour party and will never let a heterosexual male enter their domain, unless he makes the ultimate sacrifice. If he wants to get in he will have to visit Annette Kinks house and take his turn over the swiss ball.

    Is he prepared to do this to get into the Labour party, who really knows?, but I guess we will find out.

    • nasska

      The queers are in a backs to the wall situation, so to speak. If JT once again forms part of the Labour caucus, the rainbow faction are going to look like parodies of ‘goatse man’ by the time he’s finished with them.

      Labour as an organisation must be crazy…..JT’s return would give them publicity that money couldn’t buy.

  • blokeintakapuna

    More factional infighting for Labour = a better NZ Inc.
    These sorry bunch of oxygen-wasting troughers definately need stirring up.
    JT just needs to take a leaf from Hone’s book and call the rainbow factions all manner of petty names. Rark them up, get some political dirty laundry in the media – sit back and watch Labour implode upon itself in a insipid, fetid cess pit of corruption… and then once several wanna-be “leaders” have experienced “the knife” by all the other waring factions – then JT can proclaim his shot at being “leader”
    You’d think though that he’d have more self respect.
    Now that it’s legal, you’d think he’d prefer to be the male prostitute in the skinny guy/fat, smelly, unwashed chick outta the slums type of porno’s before putting himself forward to be associated with Labour?
    …Or is it because Shane has some contacts in the industry?
    Clearly – either way, he has very little shame and even lower self respect. Maybe he’s throwing a curve ball and is going to join the Mana Party?

  • Agent BallSack

    Problem for JT is he does exactly what got Chris Carter thrown under the wheels, and he’s not a pink effeminate man from Auckland. Under current Labour intake/selection plans he’s pushing shit up a colon shaped pipe with a broom handle shaped item.

  • kowtow

    The poof faction. Always pushing their own agenda and very undemocratic.Demand equality and rights but won’t share same.
    Oh and let’s redefine marriage too.

  • LesleyNZ

    JT should really stand for National. He has left Labour behind with the “gaggle of gays” running it. Labour is no longer “the working man’s party” – it is more the “GAY” party these days. Are the Greens becoming the alternative to the working man’s (woman) party?

  • Gayguy

    Homophobic comments should never be forgotten.

    There is a reason John Banks is held in contempt by the gay community in general. The community have not forgotten what Banks said and we know he has not changed.

    If JT is a new man, a wiser man, let him publicly profess is deep regret for is offensive position on gays and women. Let him verbally flog himself in public and atone for his transgressions. That might go some way to proving he has actually changed, as opposed to a convenient political alteration.

    • pukakidon

      Thats right flogging in public, that should get him the leadership of the Labour party.

      • Patrick

        especially if he had is crotchless panties & gimp mask on at the time.
        Bound to be a few of these in Darren’s room over at Annette’s house.

    • Allyson

      Nah. Just make him join the Labor party

  • Neil

    What is the “Rainbow Faction”? I Googled and it comes up with nothing…..

  • AnonWgtn

    Go Independent – you will have more support than you think.

  • WayneO

    He needs to join NZ First, stage a coup against lying Winston and ride to a comfortable coalition partner ticket in November 2014.

    • Travis Poulson

      Yea but Winston “NO” Peters is only there because of his gold card wielding constituency. Who would JT draw support from to win a seat, and more importantly, stay above the threshold?

      • WayneO

        Possibly Waitakere if National do a deal, or more likely propose some solid policy and get 5% party vote. The biddys would still vote for him as he’s almost as smooth as Peters and all he has to do is continue to promise to keep their gold card valid.

        While he’s at it he can remove the urinator Williams from the lineup and get some credible candidates. More red blooded males would be my recommendation.

        • Travis Poulson

          He wants to get back into Labour, one good enough reason why I wouldn’t vote for him if he joined any other party. Might be an opening in mana.

          • WayneO

            I wouldn’t be voting for him, but people are stupid and it’s a far better proposition than the looney greens.

  • WayneO

    Wow, he just handed Ian Leckie his arse on a plate on Close Up. JT is a huge supporter of charter schools!

  • Lion_ess

    Go Independent – leave the front bums behind. Even the blokes in the Labour Party are front bums – they’d be intimidated by you.
