Stop our Asset Sales – Hamilton Edition [POLL]

I guess Asset Sales aren’t a core voter issue in Hamilton.  The tipline reported that the protesters performed their protest to a total of 6 people.  And half of those thought it was a free concert with the band just warming up.



Poll over the break.

What is your opinion on the never-ending Asset Sale protests?

  • I'm so over it, I now prefer to debate Marriage Equality all over again (18%, 46 Votes)

Total Voters: 260

    It’s obviously a very contentious issue in Mighty River Power’s heartland.

  • Rodger T

    Sorry,just channelling Shearer there for a second before my coffee kicked in.

  • Lion_ess

    Campbell Live usually cover non-stories – where are they?

  • kohibruce

    No doubt the crowd was swelled to 3 by at least one or two spies from the GCSB.

  • Muffin

    I’m sure the horrid will report it as hundreds, maybe thousands of protesters

  • maninblack

    just fucking losers.

  • Liberty

    Cam do you have some aerial photos of the pinkos with their motley turn out?

  • cows4me

    Perhaps they should have thrown a bit of diesel on the footpath and yelled “spill”. Would have had every dribbling noddy and their press mates there in ten minutes.

    • steve and monique

      Nah just all the boy racers would have turned up.

  • I have been saying for a while on whaleoil that Labour has little support outside of the beltway and they should “knock on 1000 doors in Hamilton west and see how well they are doing”; this proves I am right.

    • Troy

      Yes it’s getting all a bit too boring hearing the muffled rants from just a very small group of left wing loonies… but let Labour continue to expend energy on it – they can only focus on one thing at a time which leaves the Govt to govern. In this day and age Liabour has turned out to be the worst opposition in NZ’s political history – good news for the future.

  • johnbronkhorst

    Saw it on TV1 news. “100’s showed up across the country”…They showed a picture of protester looking across the front row, so as to make it LOOK like there were more people than actually showed up.

    • So why did TV news not mock them and instead tried their absolute best to make it look at good as possible?

      • johnbronkhorst

        When they sent out their intrepid reporters, they went with their own preconceived notions of the success of these things but had no plan B when they found …to their horror…they were wrong. As they have never considered actually REPORTING the news (instead of creating it) and telling….(OH MY GOD THE THOUGHT OF IT) the truth!!

  • Mr_Blobby

    Shit Whale by my count there were only 4. What have you been saying about estimating crowd sizes.

  • Patrick

    Love the barrier tape – is that to keep these wallys contained & away from the general public? Their diseases are no doubt infectious.

    • Steve (North Shore)

      No, the tape means keep off the grass, pity the morons don’t

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Why can’t Naked Emperor take a copy of this photo and make fun of the Communists and hippies in the parliament? That will shut these idiots for good. Pathetic bunch of losers.

  • Kacanga

    Ever notice how TV cameras manipulate the crowd numbers? When there’s a large crowd they get high up so you can see there’s lots of people. When there’s bugger all like these fiascos, they get down low in front so you can’t tell they are only two rows deep.

    Yeah, that’s our “Independent and neutral” media for you.
