Young Labour go Nasty, again

The Labour caucus went to ground yesterday over the Aaron Gilmore “Dickhead Debacle” having been hushed up by Robertson’s Press Team in the Labour Leader’s office.

Instead it was Young Labour members who went off message resorting to homophobic and racist slurs towards National List Candidate, Claudette Hauiti, on Twitter.

Picture 1

The venom came from ex-Young Labour Vice President, Chelsea Torrance. She’s also highly active in the Labour women’s “Vimins” branch.

Picture 2

Also spitting venom was Robertson staffer, Reed Fleming, who got in on the attack.

It’s more hypocrisy but not surprising. They won’t attack Gilmore after their own Ruth “rehab” Dyson failed a breath test and was booted out of cabinet by Clark in 2000.

So there you have it. One week they’re trying to shore up the gay community by taking credit for marriage equality and the next, a filthy attack singling out Claudette for her race and sexuality.

Trevor Mallard must have taken over Young Labour because they’re the new nasty.

How can Young Labour President Jessie Lipscombe stand for such bile from her own Executive?

    Did she eat Parekura?

    • In Vino Veritas

      I’m sure she’s lovely, its just the outfit that makes her look big…….

      • How on earth is she going to assume her preordained seat in Parliament?! They’re tiny!

    • Cadwallader

      She is not a candidate for the Carl’s Jnr ad.

  • wait saying national aren’t exactly champions of lesbians or maori is venom!? There is thinned skins and then there is no skin…

    • oh and if we need nastiness then look no further than this comment thread you’ll find a lot more nasty here, but I don’t think we will see Cameron post on that

    • It could be worse. She could be asian/african/anythingnotfromthepacificexcepthawaiinasthatsamericanandtheyareallevil and then the Greens would be weighing in on her as well. The National party, like successful people and companies, doesn’t really care about your ethnicity, sex or sexual preference, but only about your abilities. Socialists, well, even the Greens list themselves as Ngati Pakeha as if being european is evil.

    • Hazards001

      Claudette Hauiti is a National list MP by virtue of that fact that she brings something to the table.
      Unlike the left where the best way to get a position on the list is by selection based on race, gender or sexual preference (the criteria being not male, not straight and not white…in that order!)
      Irony? Much!

  • botti

    Wow, Chelsea Torrance sounds like exactly the kind of self righteous, pious, morally superior type who previously belonged to Temperance Groups and religious movements.

    • Cadwallader

      National wasn’t elected to champion toss-pots and losers. Wake-up Chelsea.

    Nasty little cunts, they need to be smacked round the head, to much time learning under Helen’s skirts, the rest now being trained by “The Shin Kicker”

    • John A Lee

      Judging by your photo it looks like you have been smacked around the head a few times. Is that why you are a cunt? Perhaps you have a brain injury, might i recomend side curtain airbags.

      • unsol

        Thanks John – your comment is case & point re this post; will made an observation based on the tweets and you, a newcomer come straight in off the bat with an ad hominem attack.

        You may recommend anything you like, still won’t lift lift your status above dog shit on my shoe, say hello to everyone at the next Labour / Green meeting.

        As to the avatar,Alfred suits me just fine, I have gone to the trouble of finding one for you, and here are a couple of suggestions

    The problem with whales is that they follow misguided leaders onto shore and get beached. Then they need a whole team of people to dig them out and refloat them out to sea. Sadly though, as if lessons have not been learnt, the swim right back onto shore and get beached again.

    • John A Lee

      Strandings can be grouped into several types. The most obvious
      distinctions are between single and multiple strandings. The carcasses
      of deceased cetaceans are likely to float to the surface at some point;
      during this time, currents or winds may carry them to a coastline.
      Since thousands of cetaceans die every year, many become stranded
      posthumously. Most whale carcasses never reach the coast and are scavenged or decomposed enough to sink to the ocean bottom, where the carcass forms the basis of a unique local ecosystem called whale fall.
      Single live strandings are often the result of illness or injury, which
      almost inevitably end in death in the absence of human intervention.
      Multiple strandings in one place are rare and often attract media
      coverage as well as rescue efforts. Even multiple offshore deaths are
      unlikely to lead to multiple strandings due to variable winds and
      currents.

      A key factor in many of these cases appears to be the strong social
      cohesion of toothed whales. If one gets into trouble, its distress calls
      may prompt the rest of the pod to follow and beach themselves
      alongside.[3] Many theories, some of them controversial, have been proposed to explain beaching, but the question remains unresolved.

  • cows4me

    How can Young Liarbore President Jessie Lipscombe stand for such bile from her own executive? She probably can’t, she rather take it sitting.

    • Dave

      I had to check she was sitting, your right she is sitting, its just some of her is lying down.

      This reminds me of that time the herald forgot to use NZ spelling and spelt Labour, Labor. Go get milked.

  • Nil

    These comments are all disgusting; you’re all coming across as a bunch of hypocrites.

  • Lofty

    I was going to make a comment………………….then I looked in the mirror.
    May I be so bold as to say, this thread is somewhat nasty also.

  • TomTom

    Labour thinks that they “own” us gays just because more of them voted for the Marriage Equality law and the Homosexual Law reforms. Heads up, idiots, a lot of National MPs also advocated for the marriage law, and a coupe of yours were quite against. (that Indian fella comes to mind…)

    • Nil

      Wow, racist much? That “Indian fulla” not only voted FOR it, but also gave a speech vocalising his support. His name is Rajen Prasad.

      Well, at least Young Labour seem more educated on their opposition than you do on yours…

      • unsol

        He’s not being racist. He is stating an observation that the Indian fellow voted against it. In fact I thought he did too. I am sure I saw him on the no list…along with many (mostly Catholic) white fellas…

        • Nil

          Here he is here, speaking in support of the bill:

          But I made the racist comment, as TomTom seemed to be implying the fact that he because Rajen Prasad was Indian he must have voted against the bill, and singled out Mr Prasad because he was Indian, without actually checking his facts…

          • unsol

            Oh you mean him – I was meaning the fella in the National Party – name, who cares. On the list means not quite good enough (don’t tell Aaron Gilmore though…)

            Never heard of your guy – dont give a rats about Labour, ESP list & assistant spokespeople!

          • Nil

            Ah, I think Tom has mixed up what side Bakshi was on from the sounds of it ;)

          • unsol

            I think so too.

          • TomTom

            Haha you got him in the right party and I failed. Oh to be as wise and knowledgeable as you. *sighs* I’m just a young dumb shit.

          • unsol

            Hmm maybe not….even if I cared enough to find out the names of all opposition & all list MPs I’d never be able to remember them -that’s what too good a uni life (Otago of course – many a good time had in the OUTC) plus age & babies does to you :-)

          • TomTom

            No. I do apologise, I had thought there was only one Indian MP in Parliament.

            And Unsol is perfectly right – I also despise those Catholic MPs who voted against – religion as the basis of your reasoning to vote against is abhorrent by me. My favourite to hate on is that arse Woodhouse who swanned about pretending to be a stand-in electorate MP when he knows very well that Dunedin North is strongly in support of marriage equality – due to the student population and the liberalising effect of the uni.

          • Hazards001

            Ohhhh The ole liberalising affect of the Uni..isn’t it amazing how in the first couple of years after Uni the liberalised start becoming the centre right conservatives as they see the fruits of their labour pissed up against the wall by the self same cunts they once held in high esteem…ie the artists poets lecturers and other lazy useless do nothing wankers that make up nearly 50% of the population.

          • TomTom

            Lol get a grip. ACT is a liberal party in that its aims are a liberal society and a liberal economy.

            Also, it clear you never been to uni. Many students do not hold their lecturers in “high esteem.” Actually, I see my department as being fucking useless wankers – only two out of 20 have a masters or a doctorate. I changed my degree so I can get out and into a decent job half way this year and not end of next year.

          • Hazards001

            I guess that’s what you get when your major is film studies huh?

          • Guest

            Okay, confusion solved. I withdraw the racist accusation, as it seems he is, in fact, talking about someone who voted against, and not the Labour MP who vote for it…

          • TomTom

            Oh no worries – my fault. You don’t need to edit these sorts of post anyways but thanks anyways.

            I shall admit I do have a slightly negative attitudes towards Indians currently based off an incredibly bad experience end of the year before where a flatmate Indian girlfriend tried to extort money out of me by threatening to out me to my Catholic parents, it nearly got desperate enough for me that I just about went to the Police because I’d rather not have Dad find out that way. She was mental – slept in my bed with me by climbing through balcony windows, cried half the time, couldn’t make up her minds about whether she should marry my flatmate blah blah.

            I also agree with your comments on this post regarding the lady’s weight/size so I understand where your initial reaction came from and applaud it. It is cruel even if seems like she is well. unnecessarily overweight.

          • unsol

            That is just young crazy girl syndrome rather than race – my experience boys in the teens & 20s think with their nobs & girls can be just crazy hormonal bitches – when in relationships & more so if they get dumped or break-up.

      • TomTom

        Who was the Sikh/Indian guy on the news?! The one who kept showing up with the polynesian Labour MP in South Auckland? Absolutely confused.

        • Nil

          Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi. He’s one of yours ;)

        • unsol

          Own goal Tom! He has appeared with the likes of Collins & was on the Nat side of the house when he spoke against ME!!! Whoops…. Pawned by a young labour…be careful or WO will put you on notice…or on menial duties :-)

          • TomTom

            Yeah. Fml.

      • TomTom

        Actually. Here the Indian fella I was talking about – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanwal_Singh_Bakshi – Sorry wrong party, he teamed up with Su’a William Sio, if I recall right, to protest on “behalf” of the polynesian and Indian communities of South Auckland.

        • Nil

          So how does he fit into your description (aimed at YL) of “a coupe of yours were quite against. (that Indian fella comes to mind…)”

          • TomTom

            If I recall right, there was about 3 or 4 Labour MPs that voted against? Out of 40 in total? So call it ten percent?

            You can’t claim to be the party that represents LGBT interests when it’s clear that some of your MPs still take strong stands against it – O’Connor for example. By that argument, I’m just going to go with the Greens, who all voted for it. (Christ, never.) Or ACT. Yeah, might do next time round.

            Besides – at this point of the game, with marriage equality through, there is nothing more to be done from my standpoint. I have the option to marry, I’m happy. So, there is no reason from that angle for me to vote for Labour ever.

    • John A Lee

      Thank you Tom Tom. I really do agree that discrimination is bad, though that Indian fella ..oh that isnt that turbaned tosser in your party.

      • TomTom

        Lol. My bad. See above.

  • Sarrs

    Let’s get this back on track by saying well done to Shaun Wallis for pointing out the nastiness of the tweets. If it’s the same Shaun Wallis who is VP of Young National then full credit to him for not engaging in a slagging match and demeaning himself by operating on the level of the opposition.

    I don’t think it was appropriate to post a picture of the girl, her appearance has nothing to do with her politics.

    • Mr_Blobby

      You mean she doesn’t get 2 votes.

  • unsol

    Good stuff on those reminding people that to resort to the same gutter level comments is to not only make you just as bad, but also a hypocrite. All relatively new names too, so great that you made the effort to comment on this.

    Cameron – posting this picture is indicative of a dog whistle post. You are inviting others to put her down because of here size. Sure it may in some way be fair because of the comments made by Chelsea, but it doesn’t establish a moral high ground does it?

    Chelsea’s comments are appalling, grossly out of line, but in many ways not surprising. After all, when we see the same kind of garbage from the senior party members then how can we expect the young ones to be any different? Labour are the masters at institutionalising them while they are young.

    • Hazards001

      Totally disagree. Sorry unsol but if she wants to put herself out there as a possible future leader of our country and others are prepared to follow then her image is well put out to show her as she is.

      To be clear..she is a back alley hack wanting to insert snout firmly in trough as do all the rest of her ilk.

      At her age and in her condition the people are entitled to see who and what has set themselves onto a pedestal to lead the way.

      To be blunt in this case said person looks like she has never done any kind of honest labour or put any effort into anything.
      She looks like a lazy bloated troll. And honestly..I don’t give a fuck if she’s a “nice” person with a great personality! Doubtful considering that her people can say as they will?

      Steeling myself for the reply….in…5 4 3 2

      • unsol

        Ooh timing – logged back on to have a nose before hubby gets home.

        I see your troll has followed you as usual!

        Her size, appearance, looks etc are immaterial; it is her attitude towards others & the standard she sets regarding how Young Labour plays the political game that matters. And if course her flawed ideology.

        Sure she clearly doesn’t do any exercise (neither do most pollys I suspect – most look incredibly unhealthy), but that is hardly indicative of not doing any work – have you seen the size of the average office worker? And let’s think about bloggers – stereotype tells us they ate fact, ugly single & lacking a good shag in years.

        S I am not a fan of casting aspersions based in someone’s appearance or life choices unless they are saying one thing & doing another (if she said she was a nutritionist & personal trainer then I might give some critique) or

        • Hazards001

          As I said I disagree…appearance tells you a lot about a person. You can see if a person takes pride in themselves, is slovenly, tired, slack…a whole heap of things. This picture speaks a billion kilojoules…errr words!

          Edit: This time I suspect it’s not my troll but the Young Labour invaders that down voted that one

          • Lofty

            Made a comment then deleted…can’t be fucked.

          • Hazards001

            Then whoppedy fucking doo

          • unsol

            Well then I challenge anyone who criticises her to post a picture of themselves..,,

            Yes just realised we may have been invaded!

      Question is, how popular are your preferred ones? Martyn’s bombing, Red Alert is in the red (no one supports Labour so they have gone broke…not even Shearer has offered to bail them out with his missing millions) & the substandard couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery….

    Phar Lap finished last in the first race and did not place in his next three races. He won his first race on 27 April 1929, the Maiden Juvenile Handicap at Rosehill, ridden by Jack Baker of Armidale, a 17-year-old apprentice.[16]
    He didn’t race for several months but was then entered in a series of
    races, in which he moved up in class. Phar Lap took second in the
    Chelmsford Stakes at Randwick on 14 September 1929 and the racing
    community started treating him with respect.

    As his achievements grew, there were some who tried to halt his progress. Criminals tried to shoot Phar Lap[10][17]
    on the morning of Saturday 1 November 1930 after he had finished track
    work. They missed, and later that day he won the Melbourne Stakes, and
    three days later the Melbourne Cup as odds-on favourite at 8 to 11.[18]

    Phar Lap winning the Melbourne Cup Race from Second Wind and Shadow King on 5 November 1930.

    In the four years of his racing career, Phar Lap won 37 of 51 races he entered, including the Melbourne Cup in 1930 with 9 st 12 lb (61.5 kg, or 138 lbs).[19] In that year and 1931, he won 14 races in a row. From his win as a three-year-old in the VRC
    St. Leger Stakes until his final race in Mexico, Phar Lap won 32 of 35
    races. In the three races that he did not win, he ran second on two
    occasions, beaten by a short head and a neck, and in the 1931 Melbourne
    Cup he finished eighth when carrying 10 st 10 lb (68 kg).

    Phar Lap at the time was owned by American businessman David J. Davis
    and leased to Telford. After their three-year lease agreement ended,
    Telford had enough money to become joint owner of the horse. Davis then
    had Phar Lap shipped to North America to race. Telford did not agree
    with this decision and refused to go, so Davis, who along with his wife
    traveled to Mexico with him, brought Phar Lap’s strapper Tommy Woodcock as his new trainer.[15] Phar Lap was shipped by boat to Agua Caliente Racetrack near Tijuana, Mexico, to compete in the Agua Caliente Handicap, which was offering the largest purse ever raced for in North America. Phar Lap won in track-record time while carrying 129 pounds (58.5 kg) and was ridden by Australian jockey Billy Elliot for his seventh win from seven rides.[20] From there, the horse was sent to a private ranch near Menlo Park, California, while his owner negotiated with racetrack officials for special race appearances.
