Why is Labour supporting 16 rapists, 34 pedophiles, 22 murderers, 64 druggies…and a partridge in a pear tree?

You really have to wonder at the complete stupidity of Kelvin Davis and Andrew Little in advocating on behalf of 16 rapists, 34 pedophiles, 22 murderers, 64 druggies, 83 robbers, and 241 scumbags convicted of violence offences.

Of the 585 ‘Kiwi’ criminals awaiting extradition 367 have previously spent a year or more in jail for violent offences including rape, sex offences against children, murder and assault. There are 83 crims who were convicted for robbery, breaking and entering and theft, of such a serious nature that they too ended up in prison for more than a year.

The rest are non-violent offences which are unspecified. Just 80 out of the 585, but they too have spent more than  a year in prison.

John Key was absolutely categorically right about his claims that Labour are cuddling up to rapists and other assorted violent offenders.

Prime Minister John Key says he did not go too far by accusing the Labour Party of supporting rapists, child molesters and murderers.

MPs on both sides of the House took offence at Mr Key’s outburst in the House yesterday, which came during questioning on Christmas Island detainees. Opposition MPs said many New Zealanders had been detained for petty crimes, and some had not been charged with any crimes at all.   

Mr Key told Radio New Zealand this morning he did not believe he had overstepped the mark.

He also stood by his claim that many New Zealand detainees had committed serious crimes.

While he had been provided figures on the offences committed by the overall group of New Zealanders facing deportation from Australia, he was unsure how many rapists, child molesters and murderers were on Christmas Island.

Those figures, provided by the Australian Government in May, were released by his office yesterday.

Out of 585 Kiwis whose visas had been cancelled, 34 had committed child sex offences, 22 had committed murder or manslaughter, and 16 had committed rape. The most common offences were assault and theft.

Labour have painted themselves into a corner and they used their own paint, their own brush and a unionised painter to do it.

They have now successfully ingrained in the psyche of Kiwi voters that Labour are more concerned about the rights of pedos, rapists, druggies, murders and hardened criminals than the victims of those criminals.

That is a taint that will not be removed easily. I can see the adverts on Youtube for the next election already. The attack ads will be spectacular.

Whoever is advising Labour is a fool.
