Not thousands……hundreds.

Spies forwarded footage and Police reports of just 300 people tired old hacks marching.

This matches Labour stooge Arena Williams’ glowing report via twitter. Wow 300 people!!  This woman is apparently a future Labour super-star.

We know the numbers were that light because The Standard started the excuses early on.  They ran a mile from the debacle and silly comments from Ms Williams.  Old heads like Lynn Prentice know this was a cluster fuck of the highest order for the left.

The truth is Darien Fenton and Phil Twyford were the only Labour representatives at the Auckland march because all the other Labour MP’s were too embarrassed to turn up.

When Unite Union Head Honcho and champion of the people, Matt McCarten turns up then on seeing the poor attendance shuffles off towards The Store and its luxury gourmet takeaways just after 2pm, you know the fight is lost for the left.  I could not confirm how many extra serviettes he took to cry his eyes into after seeing just how few of his own disciples let alone the New Zealand public care about selling assets.

I guess Matt’s effort was better than David Cunliffe.  He was at Ponsonby Central.

  • TV1 news was scraping the bottom of the barrel too – they interviewed that loon from the other day Desmond Wanoa.
    Game, set, match to Mr Key and National.

    • Doug

      Desmond Wanoa ORDERS Queen Elizabeth II be HUNG & SHOT

      • maninblack

        i always wondered why he insists she needs to be hung and shot.. one or the other Desmond.

  • BR

    I see TV1 approached that dickhead with the tattoos all over his face for comment.


    As if the opinion of someone that stupid counts for anything. That’s what you get when you give morons like him publicity.


    • All the people I saw on TV looked stupid, which one are you talking about?

      • BR

        If you looked at a small crowd of people, and at a glance needed to discern the stupidest person there, first prize would have to go to the one with a map of Hampton Court Hedge Maze tattooed on his face.


    • Gazzaw

      Stuff’s maths ability must be on a par with their literacy levels.

      • They only 5 times bigger than everyone else’s estimates… Maybe they think you get points if some of your workings are right.

        • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

          Actual crowd exceeded 5000. Minto’s estimates.

    • Mediaan

      Maybe the Greens took their Wussel-style printer and printed about 1200 extra people.

    • Grizz30

      A bit of quantitative easing, in the style of Jesus Christ in the fish and bread markets.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      My sources tell me that it is a gross underestimate…..

  • thor42

    These anti-sales dickheads just don’t get it.

    National campaigned on *partial* asset-sales.

    Labour campaigned *against* asset sales.

    National won, Labour lost.


    As an arrogant git once said –

    “We won, you lost, eat that……”

    Bloody morons…….

    • NotForTurning

      That “arrogant git” sold more assets, cut more taxes, and bought out fewer private business for less than the current incumbents!

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Cullen cutting taxes – yeah right

        • NotForTurning

          But he did. Corporate taxes, personal taxes (particularly by moving the threshold) and the mathematical truth is that WFF is a targetted tax cut aimed at families in everything but name.
          The point is that very few people pay Cullen’s punitive 40% marginal rate. Most of them are in the state sector where they cannot package their salaries in other ways so they’re not nett taxpayers anyway! Tradespeople, independent businesspeople only pay 40% if they’re leftists.

          Real high-value people pay 40% too, but there are vanishingly few Kiwis earning millions per year. So the 40% rate really brings in almost nothing, and if you add that to all the dollars Cullen cut — and then compare Key’s cuts which affected relatively few people but add in the dollars Key raised with GST up to 15% — Cullen comes out ahead.

          Turns out Hellen+Cullen were actually a more rightwing government that Key+English+Joyce have been. Who sent in armed police to raid terrorist camps in NZ? — clue: not Key.
          Who paid billions out in settlements – clue: not Hellen. Hellen, remember, pissed off her own Maori MPs so much that they founded the Maori party as an essentially anti-Hellen party. Hellen would never have had the Tino Rangatiratanga flag on the harbour bridge.

          • jagilby

            WFF a tax cut?

            Taking money, gurgling it through the bowels of bureaucracy, digesting half of it, then spitting it back out is hardly what I’d define as a tax cut.

            By your definition Paula Bennett is the tax cut minister.

          • NotForTurning

            No, because Bennet’s bludgers don’t pay tax.

            People getting WelfareForFamilies do pay tax (assuming they’re employed in the non-government contracting private sector) you don’t get WFF if you’re not employed.

            Why not abolish WFF? can’t afford the flat tax you’d have to replace it with.

            Why not abolish Student loans? haven’t got the guts.

      • Patrick

        Including a poxy clapped out train set, thus giving an Australian company a $1.5 billion golden handshake.

        • NotForTurning

          Yep, but that is rather less than 2.5Bn to SCF, who knows how much to AMI, to EQC, and on and on. The fact that National was “just honouring Labour’s promises after the election” wrt the bailout just strengthens my point.

          • Patrick

            Agree, the political musings in Australia are now focused on how much damage Swan & Gillard will do to try to kneecap the incoming Liberal government in much the same way Clarke & Cullen sabotaged the NZ economy when the read the tea leaves & realised the game was up for them. Talk about bitter self interest at the expense of NZ Inc!

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      thor42 bro – Sheep is practising this line day-in, day-out. He will be saying that in his victory speech at 11:04 PM on Saturday, 8th November 2014….”mmmm…errr…he grrr we hmmmm won…ssss you mmmm lost…hmmm eat grrr errr that”. Key is toast bro.

  • sheppy

    Judging by the noisy brood that got off the bus near me clutching a mana poster most of them were preschoolers

  • Colin Cloudesley

    Yep the unions were not there, it was a Saturday, not a week day!!!

    • John Q Public

      That’s why they weren’t there, not in their own time.

  • full set

    If only some kind raghead had put one of those pressure cooker bombs out there to blow the legs off these scum. Also maybe they could stick some in the halls where they are having meetings about Auckland unitary plan to kill off some whining NZ First voters.

    • Watch it, that crosses the line. They are allowed to protest, it is their democratic right, and it is ours to mock.

      • NotForTurning

        Well you’re right under current laws. Clearly those laws need to be amended very strongly indeed.

  • Troy

    Oh god save us all….. Arena Williams is setting herself up to be another horsey-assed Jacinda Ardern. Let’s see the similar ingredients. 1. Full of shit 2. Vomits forth loonie left wing socialist agendas 3. Trys to suck the intelligence out of people by speaking about stuff they know little about 4. Thinks that shit can be polished. Astounding.

  • NotForTurning

    What would the news have said if the Whale Army had mobilised a few thousand pro-democracy, pro-freedom, anti-bludger marchers in response?

    • John Q Public

      Where do I sign up for that?

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    I am appalled by the discussions here. Minty Minto led thousands of people (my Labour spies told me that it could be closer to 5000) through Queen Street. All news media and papers are reporting simmering anger against John Key. The word on the street is people are looking for the golden rule of Communists and Socialists in 2014. They even told me that they are ready to pay more taxes to pay for welfare services. People long for restoration of social justice. Judgement day on November 8, 2014.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Darien Fenton – Is that a female or a male hippy?

    • williamabong

      No she was there trying to score, and got mixed up in the parade, irony is more people que for the launch of a new gaming console, speaks volumes really.

  • Middleagedwhiteguy

    I did see a sign asking for Maggie to come and get John Key. Great. Wishing your opponent dead. classy.

    We have a mass of infrastructure to build. This work has seen us through the worst of the recession. We have schools to build, roads to build and maintain, hospitals to build. Hell, we have a whole city to rebuild! This puts us in good stead to benefit from the coming recovery. Having China as our biggest trading partner is great, but to do that we need capital. We can either tax, borrow or use our existing asset base to help fund these issues.

    I think the government is doing the best for our country.
