    There was “no question” new safety guidelines for quarries were needed.

    “We are going to pass new legislation that will have an impact of improving health and safety standards right across New Zealand from quarries to quite frankly, corner dairies.”

    “Quarries should not be part of legislation controlling mine safety”, he said.

    “Underground mines have trapped methane gas potentially, as you saw in Pike River for instance, that’s generally not what you get in a quarry.”

    A virtual chocolate fish for whoever guesses who said these stupid things today.

    Ralph Nader: 10 Reasons the TPP Is Not a ‘Progressive’ Trade Agreement.\

    2. Only six out of the 30 total chapters in the TPP have anything to do with trade. So what makes up the bulk of this agreement, which was shaped by 500 U.S. corporate advisors? Jim Hightower writes: “The other two dozen chapters amount to a devilish ‘partnership’ for corporate protectionism. They create sweeping new ‘rights’ and escape hatches to protect multinational corporations from accountability to our governments… and to us.”

      Barry Soper tweets,

      More than 2500 people at Fonterra Paid more than a hundred grand a year, dairy farmers are relieved at lower OCR, I ask you!— Barry Soper (@barrysoper) June 11, 2015

      If true, that amounts to $250 million dollars in pay to the top pricks alone!

      No wonder the bastards charge us all, including the poor, much more for a litre of abundant milk than the price of the stupid American unhealthy sweet chemical poison drinks like coke and shit!

      We are all buggered by the uncontrolled ‘free market’ economic crap and the greed of the corporate crooks, their money grabbing managers and the selfish shareholders.

      The RWNjobs are a dangerous, disgusting, sweet-talking, self-serving, smiling, untrustworthy, bull shitting breed.

      We deserve better!

    Aldous Huxley on Distractions and Propaganda in a Democratic Society

    Brutal dictatorships don’t need propaganda to coerce public opinion. They can break out the hammer if anyone gets any funny ideas.

    But in more democratic societies, ingenious methods must be devised to shape public opinion. And, as technology becomes more and more sophisticated, so do the methods of propagandists, or what we call today the “mainstream media” and the “public relations industry.”

    Consider that and then consider this:

    A close analysis of the voting pattern among national newspaper readers at May’s general election reveals that the rightwing press played a significant role in the Tory victory.

    By comparing the votes cast by readers at separate titles at this year’s election with those at the 2010 election it is possible to detect the impact of the Conservative press on behalf of David Cameron’s party.

    How controlled, how manipulated are we by the MSM and the way that it presents the ‘news’ to us?

    All Labour needs to do is stand up now and pledge to dump the TPPA the day it is re elected…..

    Labour would then stand for NZ’s independence. National for its enslavement.

    Why are we waiting? Why are we waiting? Why are we waiting? Why? Why? Why?

      still trying to find the guts and spine they would need.

        They seem to have misplaced it back in the 1980s in the while visiting the RWNJ camp.

        • Kiwiri 6.1.1.1

          “Why are we waiting?”

          The strong impression being conveyed is that many in caucus actually are ok with the TPPA?

          • Draco T Bastard 6.1.1.1.1

            I’m pretty sure that many in the Labour caucus are ok with the TPPA – it was Labour that started the negotiations.
