Oh good grief, no one cares about your stupid neopets, you muppet

Apparently for $180,000 all Chloe can conjure up in the House is banal schoolgirl prattle:

CHLÖE SWARBRICK (Green): It is with great delight that I rise to speak on this third reading of the Electronic Interactions Reform Bill. I know that we spent quite a while traversing it in the committee of the whole House stage, and I very much enjoyed that very thorough process in which we, with a fine-tooth comb, went over every single clause and all of the impacts that we will see in our society as a result. There was a lot of discussion about email—

Erica Stanford: And kereru.   

CHLÖE SWARBRICK: —and the mighty kereru, which, I note, Erica Stanford, should have been the winner of our Forest & Bird Bird of the Year competition for 2017. But we’ll be back. We’ll be back in 2018. We will win and we will rebuild—we will survive. So all of that talk of emails, and all of the different emails that people have accumulated over their lives, had me thinking about all of the different forms of technology that I’ve used growing up as a digital native, as they call those of my generation—the likes of—

Simeon Brown: I’m a digital native.

CHLÖE SWARBRICK: Yes, that’s you, Simeon Brown. It had me wondering about all of my Neopets and whether they had passed on, and whether I should be checking in on them—you know, such it is that technology moves along, and sometimes we not along with it.

Good grief the woman is inane. Neopets FFS!

I can’t believe this woman is touted as the future of the Greens.


-Parliament, Hansard

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
