Green Taliban already getting too big for their boots

Via the tipline

A keen member of the WO army spotted this wee gem. It could be a simple case of the conference organisers getting way too over enthusiastic. Heaven forbid that someone from the office of the Green Taliban actually sent this as the title for one of their MPs.

Maybe the Green Taliban should school up on the correct use of the term ‘Honourable’. Or just ask #HeyClint.


At least Turei will be able to bask in the glory of pinko nanny state idealists hell bent on pushing their agenda onto the cardigan wearing brigade in Wellington. 

Things like control over;


Sounds like a great conference!

    Just the tip of the iceberg for Government funded social engineering.

    Long overdue we need to take these super beneficiaries and put them back onto a regular benefit, or better still tell them to get a real job.

    Simple mistake, they mean’t to say ‘orrible.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Boss Whale – They have seen the future – remember the date 8th November 2014 – so they are reacting accordingly.

  • Red

    She’ll be fascinating yet again -reading from a list of things of things they’d like to stop us doing – and her main list of how National is destroying the universe. Gripping shit for Govt Dept troughers as they plot the demise of their employers. The place will be hem deep in clipboards

      ……..and bone carvings.

      “Why might public health collaborate with the fossil fuel resistance movement”!

      Sounds like a green slogan.

      What would she, if that’s Metiria, have in mind? Public health isn’t doing any activism on anything at ths point, save more money for itself and plain cigarette packaging.

      Was passing through the Skycity convention center the other day. Going by the number of overweight, self opinionated unkempt social rejects. I would guess there was a teachers conference on.

  • Mediaan

    One of the deputy Speakers calls them all that. Even the newest of them, and the least notable, he recognises for speaking with an Hon in front of their name, just because they are a Member of Parliament. No idea why.

  • Agent BallSack

    How to pick up a man in a field? Meteria can snare them with her hairy lasso.

    • Travis Poulson

      Suddenly I’m not constipated anymore.

  • Arran Hunt

    I’d love to be a fly on the wall when someone from the Green party contacts the organiser and uses the line “Meteria is not honourable” :)

    • Mr_Blobby

      Not likely to happen is it.

  • Peej

    It must be short for ‘Honey’ because to be deserving of ‘Honourable’ you have to have shown the qualities of say, John Banks. I’m sure Meteria Turei would love to have a link to him!

  • LionKing

    That’s a conference bound to be full of taxpayer funded groups all pressing for their pet cause to get more airtime than it actually deserves. You’d have to be a keen bloke to be in the room when they’re “Picking up Men”. But then again, they’d probably be a poof, so it’s all game on for them!

  • JeffDaRef

    Given Labour’s love of calling for titles to be relinquished, interesting to see both Darren Hughes and Ruth Dyson still on the list of those with the “Honourable” title for life…Hughes in particular is anything but!
