Guess who won Massey University’s Quote of the Year competition?

Massey University held its usual Quote of the Year competition recently, and one of my quotes from the election campaign and Dirty Politics was a finalist.

The finalist quotes were:

I’m sorry for being a man. (David Cunliffe?s unusual apology at Labour’s domestic violence policy launch at a Women’s Refuge forum)

We think it?s, um, pretty legal. (Steven Joyce asked by reporters about the use of a song for the National election campaign that sounded very similar to one by Eminen)

You work in news you puffed up little shit!…When will you glove puppets of Cameron Slater just piss off??(Internet Party press secretary Pam Corkery at a campaign event, when the media kept asking for an interview with Kim Dotcom)

It was all steam and no hangi. (Te Tai Tokerau MP Kelvin Davis describing Internet-Mana after it failed to deliver on the hype on election day)

He could probably survive shooting little kittens in his garden with a shotgun. (Kim Dotcom on how little impact Dirty Politics had on Prime Minister John Key?s approval ratings.

I play politics like Fijians play rugby. My role is smashing your face into the ground. (Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater after Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics was released)

I did not have textual relations with that blogger. (Spoof of John Key’s initial denial that he had received texts from Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater tweeted by Lloyd Burr of RadioLive)

It terrifies me how much of our economy is stuck inside a dairy cow. (Comedian Te Radar talking to farmers at Fieldays)

Get past the breath-taking PR snow job. (Former CERA communications adviser Tina Nixon describing the press conference to announce the resignation of chief executive Roger Sutton after a sexual harassment complaint)

No more beersies for you. (Tagline in this year?s Health Promotion Agency advertising campaign to reduce harmful alcohol consumption.)

Guess which quote has won. ? Read more »

High price to pay for hug

Mike Hosking joins the ruck

Just for the record so we can save ourselves the letters of complaint and the misconstrued outrage driven by those not hearing exactly what I am saying, I don?t for one moment condone any sort of weird, odd, unacceptable, strange, old world, dumb, inappropriate behaviour towards women in the workplace. Further, I don?t know the ins and outs of what Roger Sutton did or didn?t do at the CERA offices.

What I can say with some confidence is whatever it was, it appeared at the less serious end of the spectrum. What I know for a fact is it wasn?t serious enough to warrant a sacking. He seems to have admitted using words like honey and sweetie, which strike me as old world and tragic kind of terms in the modern workplace.

But if that?s it, can we make the argument that whoever the complainant or complainants are they have caused a great deal of harm over what I strongly suspect for many would be dismissed as misguided behaviour if not the silly musings, meanderings or mistakes of a bloke who in reality meant no real harm.

The whole problem with this debate is that we have become so sensitive to such matters, anyone second guesses themselves if not third guesses themselves before saying anything at all. Read more »

Is Sutton the beneficiary of monumental spin? The womenpire strikes back







In a year when the public service should be self-flagellating over the mishandling of the Malaysian diplomat sexual assault case and the Roastbusters scandal, the SSC has taken victim-shaming to a whole new level.

Sutton’s victim did not make her complaint lightly. She’s respected, professional (not that this matters) and, like any woman forced into this nightmare, would have worried about her career. But, she bravely made a stand and forced her harasser to face up to his actions.

And how did the SSC reward her for her courage? They allowed her to be victim-shamed. First privately. And then very publicly. Read more »

Harvest this!

Tina Nixon aka Busted Blonde aka Brunette posted the other day in support of heli-hunting.

She also said that hunting on foot, in thick bush was not really hunting but flying around in a chopper was somehow “sport”. Apparently hunters who hunt on foot are “bush assassins” and it isn’t a sport as the deer has “no comeback”. She clearly was just trying to get in a cheap shot. She obviously didn’t know that I carried out those two animals on my back after field dressing them, then butchered them and took them home for the freezer. Shooting deer is the easy part, getting the meat out is the tough part, unless you are a big girls blouse who slaughters deer from helicopters. Someone the size of her though wouldn’t know hard yacker if it bit her on her?enormous?padded trough-fed arse.

When she wrote that blog post she forgot to tell everyone that wehe was really shilling for her son’s current business which involves flying said heli-slaughterers around.

The second part of her post was doing a big skite about how many oily, greasy, disgusting mutton birds.?She uses?mutton-birding?as an example of her food gathering prowess.?According?to Wikipedia:

In New Zealand, about 250,000 mutton birds are?harvested?for oils, food and fats each year by the native?M?ori.?Young birds just about to fledge are collected from the burrows, plucked and often preserved in salt.

Its numbers have been declining in recent decades, and it is presently classified as?Near Threatened?by the?IUCN.?In 2009 the harvest reported record low catches, on average a trapping cage would yield nearly 500 birds, in 2009 the number was estimated to be closer to 40 per cage.

So, me killing 3 deer which are actual pests, and carrying them out myself, butchering them myself and filling the freezer for the family to enjoy the meat in the coming months is evil, but slaughtering 250,000 baby birds per annum in an unsustainable manner of a Threatened species is honourable food gathering.

This useless cow has no concept of what hunting actually is, but given her more than 1o0kg weight about the only thing she hunts is pies in?Christchurch?where she is currently enjoying a government funded job at the trough.

She of course must have forgotten her stupid anti-hunter post when she posted about her own little slaughter of defenseless sheep in the aid of her?enormous?Christmas feast on Facebook. If I am a “bush assassin” then she is a paddock assassin. Those sheep had no comeback, no escape, herded in by a fence. At least the deer I hunt have a chance to escape my clumsy stumbling about in the bush. Pretty embarrassing considering her “bush assassins” post.

Then to cap it all off there was an article today in the Herald about her beloved mutton birds being radio active.

There are fears radioactive muttonbirds could be on their way to New Zealand after the migrating birds were found to have been feeding close to Japan’s ruptured Fukushima nuclear plant.

Niwa scientists, who in 2005 attached tracking devices to 19 muttonbirds, also known as sooty shearwaters, found nearly half of them were spending months at a time feeding off the coast of Japan.

US researchers have requested samples of dead muttonbirds so they can be analysed, with the expectation that some of them will have absorbed the radioactive isotope Caesium-137, an element that strongly increases the chances of getting cancer.

It is bad enough that Maori are slaughtering the threatened species but now the poor buggers are radio-active because of the Fukushima accident.

Only the dumbest of part-time Wellington/Wairarapa troughers would use the slaughter of a Threatened species of oily fat birds, kind of like her, and the helicopter laziness of bombing up deer exhausted by running from modern technology as the epitome of hunting, harvesting or whatever adjective she chooses to use.

No wonder members of the bro-rocracy think she is a stupid loud-mouth, ungrateful, bludging, odious, three-faced bitch.

This is a woman who bludges off “mates”, never even thanks them for the?efforts?that they went to on her behalf, lies to the sponsor about the charitable status of the event then only puts out the prize when forced to more than 12 months after she won the prize. Then she even provided the booze to pinkos. I refused to go to the event, for two reasons. The first is that I won’t drink with pinkos the second is because Tina Nixon is a lying, three faced, bludger who craps on her mates.

I think Peter Dunne should look very closely at banning mutton-birding. In fact I’ll let my hunting pals in the Big Game Council know about what she thinks about hunters so they too can lobby for the banning of mutton-birding, it is threatened after all, it is the least they could do in the interests of conservation.

NFWAB. Especially a real blogger not some timid faux-maori scared of her own shadow.
