Cunliffe to announce KiwiTie


Further to my earlier post about David Cunliffe’s tie, a reader from Runanga emails a press release purportedly from the Labour party.

David Cunliffe today announced KiwiTie, a plan that would introduce a single government tie-producer, making a single design of tie.

‘Allowing foreign-owned tie makers to make extortionate profits at the expense of hard-working middle-income families is just another example of National’s failed neo-liberal free-market crony-capitalist policies.

‘A national single tie producer would fix the gap between the haves and the have nots – in this case people who get ties at Christmas and those that get beer at Christmas.’

Mr Cunliffe described the policy as ‘yet another example of how the Labour party is addressing the real issues of concern to hard-working New Zealanders.’ 

The design of the new tie has been tested by Mr Cunliffe, who has been wearing the same tie for the last 3 months.

The design is mostly red, but with a blue streak down the middle.

‘Just like the Labour party.

Mr Cunliffe explained that the idea had come about because, after NZPower, a buyback of privatised SOEs, KiwiBuild and KiwiAssure, there were still areas in which a Labour government would not be involved in people’s lives.

‘And obviously a Labour government couldn’t let that happen.  After all that nationalisation, deciding what people could wear was the next natural step.’

When questioned about the way in which the policy would limit people’s freedom of choice, the Mr Cunliffe stated, ‘Choice and freedom are not words you hear a lot at Labour party meetings.’

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
