Another Asset Sale protest report. It’s looking bleak

No 1 the terrace.


For some reason they were chanting against Don Brash at the Reserve Bank!

The Reserve Bank is across the road at No 2 The Terrace. Silly protestors couldn’t even get the right building.

    Anyone else notice the shocking parking of the Corolla?

    • Gazzaw

      Very droll. Good one Meg!

      Likely owned by one of the protest mob

    • unitedtribes

      Pushed forward for the photo shoot

  • williamabong

    This is misleading, the photo was taken before the thousands turned up, or was taken too early while the great unwashed aka Rentamob were still in bed.

    • Gazzaw

      About lunchtime maybe?

  • cows4me

    Would have taken more imbeciles to produce the banner then the ones holding it.

  • Alloytoo

    One has to wonder what interest these people actually have in the assets, they clearly don’t work and probably never paid any tax which purchased the assets.

    • paddles83

      No they are either Union Delegates or School Teachers

      • LabTested

        That’s a Mana Party sign behind them.

  • spollyike

    This image sums up the whole asset sales argument i.e.stupid people that can’t understand what 49% means vs those that can. The same argument relates to left vs right these days doesn’t it? Stupid uninformed (and can’t be bothered being informed because it may involve reading/learning) vs the more intelligent money savvy portion of the population along with those who at least understand and realise whats right and whats actually nothing more than thinly veiled communism masquerading as Red-Green/Watermelon policy speak. BTW, looking at the morgan poll, i never realised the Conservatives got more votes than Maori and Mana parties combined in the last election, if there was ever a case for the removal of racist seats/electorates in this supposedly non-apartheid country this must be it!

    • Isn’t it amazing how stupid, liberal people are almost always more vocal than intelligent, educated ones.

        This blog excluded of course.

      • Gazzaw

        They forgot the ‘Toot if you support us’ placard.

    These morons just don’t WANT to understand that Labour CAMPAIGNED on “no (partial) asset sales” and THEY LOST.
    ***End of story.***
    if you campaign on an issue and you lose the election, then THAT’S IT.
    **Shit happens – get used to it.**
    As a well-known bloody arrogant recent Finance minister said –
    “We won, you lost, eat that….”

  • steve and monique

    Are they busing this huge mob around the country. Looks like the people have spoken.

  • In Vino Veritas

    The banner is partly correct. People power will prevail. And in the case of partial asset sales, it indeed has. Democracy in action.

  • OT Richter

    Better pedestrian placement would have resulted in “Stop Ass Sales”.

  • If they’re abusing Don Brash they’re two governors too late. In any case, I don’t recall he ever sold an asset, being the nominally independent Guv and all. His mate across The Terrace, the SecTreasury, handled all that stuff. They look like registered teachers (who have the time during school holidays to fulfil their union obligations), which would explain why they didn’t know these important facts.

      Think you might be right, but I could not see any sandles and socks

    Heh… reminds me of a protest a couple of years back that the same vagrants did against the NZX… trouble was they went around Wellignton looking for the NZX trading floor – not realising that NZX moved to electronic trading in 1991!!!

    So these fucktards ended up in the middle of Lambton Quay having no idea where NZX was!!!

    Stupid is as stupid does.
