Kevin Hague plays #dirtypolitics and becomes a stalker


Green Taliban MP Kevin Hague just can’t help himself but dive head-first into the pit of #dirtypolitics like some pimp-whore.

Using stolen emails, Kevin Hague has taken it upon himself to be a so-called public health champion in Parliament on behalf of the“voice of the public” Boyd Swinburn aka Boyd Swingeburn.

In the process he’s become an obsessive stalker.  

The Village People understudy is so upset that Health Minister Jonathan Coleman has batted away his 56 questions about the Health Promotion Board member Katherine Rich and Board chair Lee Mathias , he’s decided to ask the Auditor General to investigate his view that a conflict of interest exists .

Aside from the fact that Hague is obviously so fizzing at the bung about this, he doesn’t even spell-check the spelling of the Chair of the HPA in his media release, questions should be asked about his unavoidable conflict of interest with the troughing NGO community.


And who is Hannah Wignall you ask? She was the 2IC to another well known trougher from the Smokefree Coalition Prudence Stone who boasted about getting laid on the taxpayer while on a holiday, junket, conference in Japan.

Some would see this as a clear conflict between the advocacy lobbying of NGOs funded by the taxpayer and Members of Parliament. Maybe the Auditor General should be investigating this instead.

All this makes you wonder why someone like Katherine Rich would want to be on the HPA in the first place. She was well known as a bit of a bleeding heart in the National caucus, so it’s not surprising she has ended up on an agency that pumps out taxpayer money to a wide range to troughers.

With the Chair of the HPA Lee Mathias saying that Katherine Rich has “been a very strong supporter of every decision made by this agency”, Kevin Hague is now throwing Lee Mathias under the bus in his efforts to back his troughing mates.


Problem for Kevin Hague is that he’s prepared to defame people like Katherine Rich saying that she’s “broken the law”.  That sounds defamatory.

The simple reality is that to Kevin Hague, the hint of big business being involved in policy decisions around public health issues is just too much for him to handle.

Likewise being in opposition for another three years.
