#Laboursgottalent already into the nasty

Didn’t take long, but to be expected from the Nasty Party.

Felix Marwick reports at NewstalkZB:

While the candidate list for the Labour Party leadership remains to be finalised, a full scale campaign’s already underway on social media.

Twitter accounts are already up and running – each staking a claim for the three main candidates, Grant Robertson, David Cunliffe, and Shane Jones. 

And there’s already some niggle – the account backing Shane Jones is accusing Grant Robertson of email spamming party members.

The Cunliffe backer is accusing Robertson’s supporters of being nasty.

And the Twitter account backing Grant Robertson has managed to spell the MPs name incorrectly.

The next few weeks are going to be awesome.

      And le Poohole graces us with his words again…. Profound, NOT

    • Muffin

      Hes busy running the country while your fucktard mates in the labour party scrap over whos going to be in charge so they can be in oppisition again in 2014……where they belong.

      • AngryTory

        Has as – where they deserve is hanging from lamp posts by piano wire

        No quarter for communists ever…

    • Super_Guest

      Are you such a dipshit that you trust any politicians? I suppose when you’re on the benefit your livelyhood depends on them, so…

      • Mr Sackunkrak

        Oh yes, I forgot the ingrate is a bludger. If it contributed as a taxpayer or as a thoughtful commenter, I’d give it more time than I do a steaming pile on a sidewalk.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Spinach – why do you even care to post?

    • johnbronkhorst

      So you are crying because these are three BEST candidates labour have!!
      HAHAHA Kindergarten contest of the 3 dwarf brained fools. porno, nasty and fatty.

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Porno calls John Key as $50M gorilla
        Nasty asks John Key to pack his bags for a long holiday in Hawaii
        Fatty hasn’t said anything yet…

        Should John Key be worried? The next poll due out will be Rogue Morgan and National is already at its lowest level in that poll….Not good times I am afraid…

      • rockape

        No JB Goffey was supposed to be the best, followed by Shearer, this lot are the also rans. God, we are probably going to have to put up with a few Aussie type resurrections in the future!

      • Kaptan Fatcom fan Tastic

        Wonder why Fatcom did not put his name forward???, he would have won by the millions.

    • Meg

      I read today that many kiwis do not believe much of Key says.

      No wonder he is trying to attack the Labour party and claim that it is going to be nasty, bitter etc… He is scared of a new leader and how low he will drop in the polls and how fast.

      • FredFrog

        And sheep was going to lead labia into the next election.

        Aren’t you surprised not too many people bother with you? The only reason I do is to try and help you understand how delusional you are. However, like the veterans of WOBH, soon I too will just ignore you as you dribble all over your straitjacket in the corner of your padded cell.

        • Kendall

          Who are you talking to?

          • FredFrog

            Not you. Clue: look at the name after the arrow above the post.

        • Meg

          Goodness the right do get nasty when they are running scared.

          • FredFrog

            Au contraire. Scared of what? Labour’s got bugger-all to offer the electorate, apart from the poof, the prat and the pornhound. With that “depth”, a pothole could win easily.

            Now that your pathetic attempt at deflection has been dealt with, and seeing as you seem to have missed the point, what say you about the commentary that you keep on making predictions, and yet keep on falling flat on your face?

          • Meg

            Scared of the fact Key is a dogs dinner, and as far as I can recall my predictions have been basically bang on each time.

            Or are you going to tell lies and claim I said National was going to get the boot last election, when the truth is I said they would win.

            So Fred, get used to the idea, of Johnny going on that long long holiday. Goof riddance too.

          • FredFrog

            You said sheep would lead labia into power come the next election. Sorry, you fail.

            With the current labia line up (Or rather, loon-up), and the tatters the party is in, Key could practise human sacrifice and still be a shoo-in come 2014.

          • AngeyTory

            Come 2020.

          • Meg

            That’s it, kick it into high panic mode. 2014 here comes a new government.

          • FredFrog


            You’re just like AngryTory, Meg, a complete one trick pony.

            The only panic is in the labia party, as they’ve realised they’ve got no electable candidates for the role of leader. We’re looking forward to 2014, and watching labia get hammered again.

          • Meg

            You are going to be very sad after 2014.

          • FredFrog

            Whatever, Meg. Your leftwing is showing:
            1. You’re incredibly boring.
            2. You’re seriously deluded

            I don’t make a habit of conversing with boring or deluded people, and you’ve exceeded my boredom threshold. Goodbye.

      • dyannt

        Do you really believe everything you read, Meg?
        And without a capital K, are you referring to the bird variety of kiwi?

      • Super_Guest

        Labour’s already “nasty, bitter etc”.

        • Meg

          Not as much as John Key is pretending. He is nervous. And rightly so. Kiwis don’t believe him, a new strong Labour leader… bye bye Key.

    • rockape

      yes and so is GCSB, Snapper and all the other things Labour thought they would get traction on. A month for the leadership war. A month to hastily cobble together some Union friendly policies,the price of Union support is never cheap, ask Arthur Scargill, and Labour will be in a great position to loose another election and start looking for another leader to lead Labour in 2017. It’s never the policies it’s always the scapegoats fault.

    • Ducky

      Yeah,, usual beatup from the leftie journalist about untrustworthy JK.. That’s what we would expect and the minions of the braindead lefties will believe anything the newsprint tells them as they are incapable of discerning truths.trust Labia party/Green Talibans/NZF??/ yeah right! Time for my Tui…

      • mike

        JK is still more trustworthy than any anyone from Labour or the Greens… all things in context.

  • drummerboy

    got any links for these accounts?

  • Mr Sackunkrak

    So, vote Labour and get all the back-biting factions and as an extra bonus you get a senile old wanker, a bunch of commies and loons, and the racists. That’s one dysfunctional “pick-n-mix”, can’t see how that could run a bingo call, let alone a country.

    Vote National and you get a bunch of folk who seem to play well and don’t have too many demanding bedfellows.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Once Curryleaf is selected as our leader, others will start to worship him. Curryleaf will appoint Rolly Polly as his Deputy, Pornsy Jonesy as his Finance person, Horse Woman as the Socialist Spokesperson. Strong team bro…Key can’t handle the heat…oh BTW, my aunty Royal Princess of Rongotai will be health and Fill Gap will be foreign affairs….dream team…

      • Mr Sackunkrak

        Err, isn’t commie Norman getting finance, Turei getting Socialist Spokesperson and Winston getting forein affairs? There’s gonna be one hell of a shit-fight.

        • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

          That is when we form the government in 2014. What I am talking about is shadow portfolios. Once we win the election, all bets are off….

      • Bunswalla

        Dreamin’ Team, as in “tell him he’s…..”

        • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

          Already Curryleaf is wearing Pasifika style garlands….

    • O’Brien

      Vote National and get an organised effective government determined to lick,bludgers, unionists, leftists, i.e. economic terrorists – as hard as we possibly can.

      Imagine a boot stamping on every bludgers face – forever.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Once the leader is selected, all the labourers will pledge their support and unite behind the new leader who will slay John Key.

    • Whafe

      Very true SCS, a new leader alone without sorting the myriad of hidious factions within the Liabour party will have no part at all in the new leader slaying John Key ;)

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Roy Morgan poll Whafe, Roy Morgan poll….

        • Bryan

          what the poll run by the Australian rogue outfit that polled the underage voters its more like Captain Morgans rum deal

          • OneTrack

            Now you’re talking.

    • mike

      LOL! SCS you’re world must be a beautiful place…. where the sky has a reddish tinge to it and where the cult of Helen has been instituted as the new state religion, and where the Green Police sweep in on any capitalist or anyone who has something that their neighbor covets and sends them off to re-education institutes.

  • Col

    Oh what a happy Labour party, just more knives out for the backstabbing, with luck they could kill each other.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Cunliffe said it was very unlikely that a Green MP would have the finance portfolio in a Labour led government – pretty much ruled it out.

    Asked if a Cunliffe led government would raise taxes, Cunliffe said that it would be possible, but he wouldn’t commit to details. He said that Labour was for a progressive tax system, and those who gained a big share of money should pay a fair
    share of taxes.

    Asked what his message was to John Key, Cunliffe said something about
    him looking forward to packing his bag for a long stay in Hawaii.

    That says it all folks…..Get ready to be taxed to death for being successful and earning money…..

    • cows4me

      Yeah he’s just a regular bag of shit isn’t he. Expect much talk of rich pricks, jealously played up as class warfare.

      • Kopua Cowboy

        Pot calling kettle black, MP’s get paid bloody heaps

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        I hope you don’t mind paying little extra for the downtrodden of this country….

    • Bryan

      stupid man he has just given National a great punch line to shoot him down at the next election he will rue ever making that statement

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Curryleaf never makes mistakes Bryan….Closely watch how he wins this leadership race…..

    • mike

      The rate they’re dropping it may be a Labour finance portfolio in a Greens led Government

  • Cunliffe has confirmed that he just can’t wait to start taxing rich pricks within a dollar of their lives. I bet that’ll go down well with NZEI, PPTA and the Principals’ Federation when they suddenly see their tax rates go through the roof.

    • Meg

      And the middle class who apparently subsidise the wealthy of NZ.

      Nothing wrong with a little higher tax on the rich, or a Cap gains tax. Only the selfish buggers will cry about it.

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Yeah, tax those who work and pay those who sit in the couch and smoke P. Labour’s great policy for election win.

        • Meg

          Goodness, already starting with the lies. You lot must be shit scared.

          • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

            Yes Meg, we are so scared off Labour’s progressive, earth shattering policy of tax the hell out of hard working people and give the money to the losers on the dole. Great policy indeed.

          • Meg

            I see you are very scared given the lies in that post SCS.

          • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

            OK Meg – let me make it simple. What is Labour’s policy on taxing rich pricks? What is the tax percentage and what income level that cuts in? Why is this tax needed now?

          • Meg

            At this point, the policy from one leader in waiting is, bump it up a bit. I’m fine with that.

            As for why – to put back all the good social policies that National cut (like the one that helped Paula B get to her high paying position) for one.

      • mike

        Hmmm, I’m pretty sure that someone who earns twice as much as me ends up paying more than twice as much tax as me. That’s not fair… lets have a fair flat tax rate, say 15c in every dollar earned.

        • Meg

          The top tax rate is not twice as much as the middle tax rate. ANd a flat tax is a help to the rich and a punishment to the poor.

          • mike

            Here’s a fact for you Meg… the top 2% of earners (65000 people) pay roughly $4.83 billion in tax, that’s 2% all tax payers paying 19% of the entire tax take.

            If you take everyone in the top tax bracket ($70k up) that’s 15% of all tax payers (664000 people) paying 54% of the entire tax take.

            They pay more tax than everyone else so that’s not fair.

            And pray tell how does a flat tax rate (with no loop holes or excluded income) punish the poor considering everyone earning over $14k would pay less tax.

            Government would probably make more money by taxing people less although accountants would lose some business.

          • Meg

            You earn more, you can afford to pay more in tax. And given your wealth is earnt off the back of the lower paid, that sort of bitching does not wash.

          • mike

            Rubbish Meg, do you not understand economics? You earn more you invariably spend more which then allows businesses to pay their staff and quite possibly employ more workers.

            Add to the the fact that those people you and your ilk deem as the rich upper class are those who create employment by starting companies and hiring people.

    • Cadwallader

      It won’t worry the unions..they don’t bother to pay tax ask Matt.

  • Gungadin

    Marine Parade Herne Bay … Is it a Glasshouse he resides in ?

    • LabTested

      On TV3 today he said he would really prefer to live in New Lynn but……

      • Gungadin

        Sounds like a rich prick to me

      • Meg

        But he put the needs of his wife and children first. Just the sort of thing we should praise not look down on.

        But then as Cunliffe said, Labour people do not pull the ladder up when they make it AKA more caring than the right.

        • mike

          LOL… that’s a huge bloody bag of bollocks Meg, those rosy glasses you wear really do blind you to the hypocrisy of the left don’t they.

          At least those of us who lean to the right admit all politicians are a pack of lying cheating bastards!

          • Meg

            Given from what I have seen from your lot on here, not a one of you can see the flaws of the right.

            And you go say to Cunliffe’s face he is lying. I dare ya.
