I spotted something rare today, a sensible comment on a frothing Left wing blog



Over at Wrongly Wrongson’s place, the frothing over Talley’s drug testing their workers onboard a Nelson fishing ship, after Methamphetamine was found on board has reached epic proportions. I swear there is spittle on Martyn’s computer screen. According to him their claim that they are trying to keep their workers’ workplace safe is a joke.

He attacks not only Talley’s but New Zealand company My Food Bag for the thought crime of buying 100% New Zealand produce from a 100% New Zealand owned company. What is particularly troubling about Martyn’s leftie logic  is that he is not limiting his call for a boycott of the New Zealand owned company that he is against.  Oh no, it is now open season on any company that does business with them.  He doesn’t care about the workers at Talley’s who will end up losing jobs if the companies profit drop because of a boycott.  He doesn’t care about My Food Bag, a New Zealand online business very vulnerable to this kind of on-line attack. All he cares about is virtue signalling.

He is just like the Lefties who support the BDS movement. Their actions cost Palestinian workers their lucrative jobs at Soda Stream. They say they care about the workers but all they care about in reality is how they look to their friends. The end result of their boycotts is swept under the rug.



A socialist like him should want to keep work in New Zealand  and should want to support New Zealand workers and New Zealand businesses.  Competitors like McCain’s are owned by Australians and the frozen vegetables  come from a number of different countries. Talley’s  keeps the money in New Zealand by paying New Zealand workers, New Zealand suppliers, and New Zealand farmers.

At least one leftie on Wrongly Wrongson’s spittle-flecked blog gets it. I just hope that the realisation that boycotts will hurt New Zealand workers filters through to the rest.
