Green economic vandals told not to be “wankers”

Rod Drury has attacked yet another case of Green party economic vandalism, yesterday he tweeted after Russel Norman attacked a company in parliament:

He followed that up shortly after with:

Russel Norman’s tinfoil hat attack is disgusting, ill informed and real conspiracy theory stuff. The higher these muppets go in the polls the more shrill they’ve become.  

Green Party co-leader Russel Norman has accused Prime Minister John Key of conspiring to establish a surveillance state in New Zealand by encouraging American data-mining company Palantir to set up shop here.

The comments prompted a savage response from Rod Drury, a business associate of Palantir co-founder Peter Thiel, with Mr Drury labelling the attack another example of economic vandalism.

It is economic vandalism. A company has established an office in New Zealand, is providing jobs. They state on their website:

New Zealand is agile, innovative, and the birthplace of our Palantir Mobile technology. Our goal is to bring Silicon Valley to New Zealand, and showcase New Zealand’s agility to the world. Palantir’s Wellington office is truly a start-up within a start-up, where your technical skills will drive the future of Palantir in the Southern Hemisphere.

And all Russel Norman wants to do is attack them based on whinging of a fugitive he now wants to re-home in New Zealand. Not only that the claims they are basing their attacks on are largely without merit.

Does anyone else find it ironic that Russel Norman is moaning about a police state when just last week he was imploring the Police to seize an MPs emails? He backed away from that though when he realised it would affect his conspiracy theory attacks against the Prime Minister for this week.

The man is a grandstanding, sanctimonious, hypocrite.
