  1. The Chairman 1

    “As a result of them testing it and despite being told that the family’s daughter had had a 21st birthday the week before, which could have resulted in anything taking place there … they not only punished the family, they also reported them to Child Youth and Family and their two children were removed from their care.”


    • Muttonbird 1.1

      This is terrible treatment of vulnerable Kiwi families. That HNZ sees fit to punish by eviction the very people they are entrusted with providing a service to points to the clumsy hand of Bill English.

      Stand by for Richard Rawshark and his right wing mates to tell us a 21 year old should not have a birthday party because the meth testers might come around afterwards.

    • Draco T Bastard 1.2

      This sort of shit should not be happening. That it is after months of condemnation of it means that someone, somewhere is causing this atrocity on purpose.

    Bryan Gould on the Keys’


    The sheer stupidity of Max Key’s efforts makes me think this was ordered as a diversion. Surely no seemingly intelligent 21 year old could think that was a great thing to do.

    • Richard Rawshark 3.1

      But you think having a go at someone on the Helen Kelly page was ok.?

      You really need to understand what you did. Why it’s wrong.

      How forums operate, and where to take personal stuff that has nothing to do with the thread your posting in.

      That’s why I am upset with you, the sooner you grow up here and post properly the better AFAIC, you will be a fine supporter of the left movement but we have boundaries, learn them. I speak for myself, however i’m positive my sentiments will be supported by others.

    • Chris 3.2

      Are you surprised when his old man goes on radio across the country and names women celebrities he says are “hot”? Get with the programme. Max Key is a product of the values his old man has instilled in him.

    • Gabby 3.3

      He’s never seemed all that intelligent.

  3. joe90 4

    I see the nact research unit via the sewer has put the boot into Mike Joy.

  4. Richard Rawshark 5


    Wow. That’s quite frankly manslaughter IMHO.

  5. Gangnam Style 6

    Hooton on Kelly 2013,

    …”she wailed” & “screeched”, I can’t believe NBR published this crap. This is why I don’t buy the right wings crocidile tears. She was truly feared & will be greatly missed.


    • BM 6.1

      It’s more about politeness and showing a bit of class.

      Something quite a few left wingers, seem to completely lack.

      • Draco T Bastard 6.1.1

        The RWNJs wouldn’t know what politeness or class was.

        It’s not polite to go around attacking beneficiaries.
        It’s not classy to go around taking away hard won employment rights so as to lower wages and increase profits.

        These are the things that RWNJs do all the bloody time.

        What you RWNJs don’t seem to like is getting called out on your BS.

      • Gangnam Style 6.1.2

        Nah it’s PR spin, shallow platitudes from shallow people which is disrespectful. What about respect while she was alive? Please prove me wrong & show a post before she died by you BM, James, Gosman, Red, James or the like saying something respectful about Helen while she was alive, go on prove me wrong. I been trawling through the WO archives (first time I visited that poorly designed site!) & havn’t seen much respect there.

        • James

          I have nothing to prove to you. But your attitude speaks volumes about the kind of person you are.

          But strange as it may be to you. Normal people can disagree with people but still respect them.

          In the meantime – I’m going to stop commenting on this because you are just being pathetic.

          I think the mods got it right by just deleting the bullshit.

          #peace out.

          • One Anonymous Bloke

            Of course it’s possible for disagreement and respect to co-exist, unless the respect only turns up post-mortem.

          • Gangnam Style

            So it has, no worries, I just don’t buy your bullshit. Peace to you too.

      • One Anonymous Bloke 6.1.3

        Push your way to the front pew. Your class demands it.

        • Gangnam Style

          From BM

          “Helen Kelly, put your ego aside for a minute and think of the damage you’re doing to the union movement.”

          Hobbit emails show Jackson’s dodgy dealings

          Sure that’s kinda tame, & the Standard search function is terrible, how’s that ‘respect’ & ‘class’ coming along BM? Ya hypocrite.

    • Richard Rawshark 6.2

      Hooten, I cannot believe, though it’s true, someone in their right mind would approve of anything like what he suggested there. That should be on many a poster this coming election for all the public to read.

      It would be poetic justice to slap those words right back at him right now, the I said that in 2013 would be his only defence and that frankly wouldn’t be enough.\

      Someone please get this in the main stream.

    Predictably TV One’s 6pm coverage of Helen Kelly’s memorial did not do her justice and should have been the lead story.

    No one from the Labour party, or the Greens was interviewed including their leaders but they made time for Michael Woodhouse to make a comment , she has only been gone for two weeks and they are doing her an injustice already by the way they covered this important event.

    She is still more loved and respected for her courage and values than any two bit TVNZ reporter or celebrity news reader will ever be.
