Andrew Little e-mails the wife of a man he called a Sociopath on One News

Andrew Little called my husband a sociopath on One News in 2014 but continues to send me chatty e-mails. If he and his Labour volunteers are too incompetent to notice that I use them for Blog posts, then I guess I will have to keep on using them. Unfortunately they are so yawn inducing that I am struggling to make fun of them.

Take this latest one for example. Andrew is trying to take credit for a National Party announcement. To make it even worse he is using a blatantly transparent method of manipulation. In speeches a common way of trying to get an audience on side is to use inclusive language such as ‘us,’ ‘our‘ and ‘we.‘ According to Andrew Little, Labour and I pressured National into giving Pharmac extra funding.


We won, Juana!

What a great day for our movement. I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together.

Late last night, the Healthy Homes Guarantee Bill passed its first stage in Parliament. If it passes all stages, no child in New Zealand will have to grow up in a rental home that makes them sick.

And earlier yesterday, the government announced that Pharmac would receive extra funding to pay for an advanced melanoma treatment.

These two things only happened after over 70,000 of us took action online and on the ground – by signing petitions, writing letters, sharing your stories, and coming to rallies – we did it!

And it’s all down to people like you. By pressuring National and its support parties, we helped move closer to every child in New Zealand living in a warm, dry home. And by working together with cancer survivors, we’ve been able to put enough pressure on National to increase Pharmac’s funding to pay for life-saving medicines.

It’s amazing what we can do when we work together. We can drive real change and I’m so proud of that.

But, Juana, these two wins are only the start.

We’re making progress on fixing unhealthy rental homes, but there are still other huge issues in housing. Home ownership is now the lowest it has been in 64 years, but instead of backing first home buyers, National is on the side of property speculators and land bankers.

And the reality is that Pharmac’s funding boost is less than half of what they need. Our whole health system is underfunded by $1.7 billion and thousands of patients are missing out on treatment they need.

We can fix these things – and we’ll keep making progress and campaigning on these issues – but if we want to fix them for good then we have to change the government. National is increasingly arrogant and out of touch. It’s becoming clearer they are too often focused on those at the top — and not on middle New Zealand.

If we keep up the momentum that you’re helping create, Juana, I know we can win next year’s election.

So, Juana, thanks. Thanks for everything you’ve contributed to our campaigns. It’s wins like this that make clear why we do this.

At least there was one interesting part of the e-mail. I mistakenly thought that Labour represented the criminal class, those on benefits and sometimes the working class but I was wrong. They now want to represent middle New Zealand whatever that is. Clearly National have captured ‘ middle New Zealand ‘ so now Andrew Little is working to get them on side. Somehow I don’t think talking about kicking John Key out will do it.

A short note on donations, Juana:

The election is just next year and we’re relying on your support to get John Key and National out. Every year, National has large donations pouring in from a small group of very wealthy individuals. Labour is proud to be the party of the people and we’re funded by small donations from thousands and thousands of passionate supporters like you.

Will you be one of our generous donors, Juana? Whatever you can afford — even if it’s only $5 — will make a difference to the outcome of the election next year. We have to kick John Key out and we can’t do it without you. Please donate today. Thank you.
