We were the first country to give women the vote but how much do you know about it?

Danger Womens Suffrage

I did not study women’s suffrage when I was at High School but my daughter and I chose it as a history project last year. Considering how New Zealand was a world leader in this area I think it is a pity that so many of us know so little about it. Britain for example started the fight for women to get the vote before New Zealand did yet New Zealand women achieved it before them. After taking the quiz I think you may be shocked to learn when one country in particular gave women the vote.

With friends like Matthew Hooton who needs enemies?

Matthew Hooton is a friend of Laila Harre (? Still I assume ) as they went/or are still to go on a skiing holiday to Whistler together. The trip has been planned and paid for, for months. It will be/should’ve been an interesting trip if it was the source of Matthew’s statement on Paul Henry yesterday about The Labour Party and The Internet Party.

He stated that the Labour Party’s? “Vote Positive” campaign slogan was designed to complement Kim Dotcom’s Moment of Truth as the idea was to provide a contrast between despicable John Key and The Labour Party. This confirmation, from a confidant of Laila’s, confirms what we have said all along here on Whaleoil about Dirty Politics being a hit organised by not one but two political parties ably assisted or led by the Machiavellian Matt McCarten, a long time friend and Alliance pal of Laila Harre.

This is the first time that Hooton has dropped the veil. Of course he was donkey deep in pushing the left-wing slant on Dirty Politics…he constantly claimed that this MP or that MP was next, and that John Key would have to resign, and that National would lose the election. He was drinking the Kool-aid of the Dirty Politics crew, literally, from the horse’s mouth. He is as complicit as the media, and perhaps more guilty than most.

I still find it interesting that there is nary a mention of him in Dirty Politics…and certainly nothing about his own business practices…very interesting indeed.

However the collusion between Labour’s inner sanctum and Dotcom’s criminal political conspiracy is now established.There is no longer any doubt that Labour via the cosy relationship between Matt McCarten and Laila Harre colluded with and plotted with Kim Dotcom in order to subvert our democracy and hijack an election through a criminal enterprise.

This now makes the story I heard from one National MP that saw McCarten approach Mark Mitchell, and stop and say “Ahhh, so I finally meet the puppet master” make complete sense.

Now what on earth could McCarten have meant by that statement? It means nothing unless you also watched Martyn Martin Bradbury claim constantly via his left-wing hate speech blog that Mark Mitchell ‘s election was going to end in tears and that he should have shut up about Kim Dotcom.

But I digress…that story is for another day.

Best of all, with Hooton outing the relationship,? and just after revealing this pertinent bit of information, Hooton then threw Laila under the bus, naming her the years biggest Political Loser but trying to soften the blow by comparing her to feminist icon Kate Sheppard!

Hooton is nothing if not shameless, I’ll admire him for that, but as for his political predictions for the election, they were as accurate as those of Wrongly Wrongson, the blogger formerly known as Martyn Martin Bradbury.

Brian Rudman compare and contrast

Brian Rudman has taken a break from begging for a theatre and written an attack piece on me and my father which was probably dictated down the phone by Len’s smear merchants.

The Slater family failed to defeat Len Brown by masterminding John Palino’s campaign in last week’s mayoral election, so now we have a dirty blow beneath the belt.

Former National Party president and Palino campaign manager John Slater couldn’t topple the Mayor fairly, now his son, Cameron, is trying to humiliate him out of office.

Cameron Slater seems to have forgotten what century he’s living in. Marital infidelity is hardly a sacking offence in this day and age. The sleazy and infuriated out-pourings of the discarded mistress on his website might have shocked his grandparents’ generation, but today it’s more likely to raise little more than the odd snigger, and feelings of sympathy for Mr Brown’s family. What his Labour Party friends might think of him sleeping with a class enemy – a dreaded Citrat – is another matter.

One-time US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger wrote of power being the ultimate aphrodisiac, and Mr Brown is hardly the first politician to discover this. But as long as he seems to have been able to fit in his extra-curricular activities with the job we elected him to do, I, as a ratepayer, don’t expect any apology. As for the mistress, it takes two to tango.? Read more »
