What does it take to ruin a good party?

What does it take to ruin a good party?

Perhaps a lack of clear and concise policies drafted to address current problems in society.

Possibly a lack of sound fiscal management of the overall economy with very little or no understanding of how it operates.

Maybe there’s no clear person in charge; someone with whom the buck well and truly stops.

Or, maybe it’s just that one person, you know the person I mean. That person who, after just one sniff of alcohol, becomes a kind of psychic-emotional vampire and just ends up ruining the party for everyone involved.

It has been alleged that, last month, at one of the Labour party’s annual youth huis called ‘summer camps’, four young people, all aged 16, were sexually assaulted by the same 20-year-old man.

 It has been alleged that the intoxicated offender put his hands down the pants of two young men and two young women.

While I’m aware that this type of unacceptable behaviour knows no boundaries when it comes to politics, it does strike me as being rather reflective of the left’s seemingly ubiquitous belief in the concept of moral relativity trumping all else. After all, ‘if it feels good,  then let’s do this.’

This from a party that recently asserted that the voting age should be lowered to 16 because, after all, usually 16-year-olds think they know it all anyway so why not just let them have an influence in a popular mandate? I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

I’d be interested to know what kind of supervisory measures, or lack thereof, were in place at the time.

Unless I’m mistaken, it’s actually illegal to ply minors with alcohol in this country. Hang on a moment I’ll just go and check…

“If you are under 18 years old and WITH a legal parent or guardian you can:

    “Drink alcohol in a supervised area where meals are served (such as a restaurant or family lounge bar) but only if it is provided by the parent or legal guardian with you.

-New Zealand Police Website.

Now, just so we are all clear, a ‘legal guardian’ means someone who has been appointed by the court and not another family member, spouse or partner, or, in this case, negligent youth supervisor.

Witnesses reported a “mountain” of alcohol being made available to the camp attendees on Saturday evening, roughly a third of whom were minors. Young Labour’s Tess Macintyre, the camp’s supervisor, was reported as retiring early in the evening at around about 9pm.

The camp’s ‘code of conduct’ was apparently given to everyone at the beginning of the camp and included a ‘zero’ tolerance for inappropriate behaviour.

I’m assuming, therefore, that the organisers and hosts of the camp themselves had not read this code of conduct as I would regard the supply of alcohol to minors as being inappropriate to say the least.

Another example of inappropriate behaviour is conning up to 85 foreign youth interns with promises of keynote speakers and adequate shelter, but I digress.

What we are witnessing here is yet another stark reminder of the absolute lack of moral fibre inherent in the clueless idiots currently trying to run this country.

With this being an example of how badly managed the Labour party’s social gatherings are, I really dread to think of what goes on in the higher echelons of power.
