Maori Party: help the Maori kids.

United Future: sensible policies for sensible kids.

Mana Party: listen, kids, to the racist white man and all his bullshit racist white man policies.

Greens: leave the world a better place for our kids.

National: our kids have already left New Zealand for a better place.

NZ First: you bloody kids!

ACT: sleep with your kids, as soon as they’re old enough.

    Act Colon Crazy and National caught in incestuous coalition to deprive NZ children of healthy future.

    Kids: We’re so cold, hungry & confused, we’re not going to vote (when we get older) cause it wont make a difference!

    Lol. I kid you not.

    LABOUR : Kids should be valued and helped.

    MAORI PARTY : Kids should be heard and loved.

    MANA PARTY : Kids are kids! To be mothered and fed.

    GREENS : Kids are like trees to be nurtured and hugged.

    NZ FIRST : Kids are great! They don’t need senior gold cards!

    NATIONAL : Kids should help us close the gap by shoving off to a place across the ditch.

    UNITED FUTURE : Kids should show some common sense and not leak.

    CONSERVATIVES : Kids should be hurt not shown.

    ACT : We support kids and incests…..Oops, we mean, insects.

      Do you ask Scott for permission ?

      Yes they did.

      Hell I just steal his work.

      It’s not theft if it’s given freely. I’m happy for people to make any non-commercial use of my work that they like, so long as they tell people I’m the original author.

    Pete George did not approve. He wanted something more sensible, then he apologised. Imperator accepted his apology. Blog writers do a great service to the community by keeping Pete George off the street.

    • McFlock 6.1

      lol

    • Clemgeopin 6.2

      qué? I sense an inside joke here. Yes? Tell me more!

      • McFlock 6.2.1

        Pete George is a vacuum with an obsession who tends to pick up bans from NZ political blogs for hogging threads while saying absolutely nothing.

        Better than having him on the streets, though…

        • Clemgeopin 6.2.1.1

          Oh, ok. Thanks. Saying nonsense and BS? He sounds like Straight Faced Cunning Key or Double Dipton Bull English!

      • Murray Olsen 6.2.2

        Pete George is the blog presence of the United Future Party. He prides himself on being sensible and seeing all sides of an argument, but is really quite right wing. His “sensible” posts go down well on right wing hate blogs, where he continually complains about The Standard. If he talked into a paper bag, it would commit suicide.

        • Clemgeopin 6.2.2.1

          Yeah? Wow! Now he sounds like the legendary cabinet leaker or may be his secret inbred!

        • McFlock 6.2.2.2

          If he talked into a paper bag, it would commit suicide.

          I have no idea how that works, but I’m still laughing at it :)
