Depose Gerry the First!

Jeremy Harris has created a facebook group calling for the End of the Reign of Gerry Brownlee.

It’d be great to get this law repealed. I know I’m uncomfortable with any power in Gerry’s hands; the thought of him having the right to re-write pretty much anything in the statute book terrifies me.

Join quick before he bans it…

    can’t help but think that this will last as long as it takes the national party’s ditto heads to flood it with their usual brand of drivel. allowing the tory poodles to malign it as fringe lunacy.

    Show some respect BUNJI and stop being so familiar. Afford the man his proper title : King Gerard, Strong and Brave Spear-Wearer, 1st of the Land of Canterbury and Right Honourable Lard Arse for Christchurch.

    I’ve also set up a Group which can be found here No,Gerry I also bought the domain nogerry.co.nz with the intention of putting up a site where people can log breaches of otherwise established laws. if anyone is interested in helping setup nogerry.co.nz please comment on the FB page.

    Sorry to be so self-promoting!

    Is there anyway to combine our groups Chris..?

    While I’m all in favour of maintaining a watching brief over the Gerry Dictatorship and bringing our lily-livered easily-duped MPs to account, I am also wary of the Right masquerading so as to leverage this apparent schism betwixt the Beehive and the party members . . .

      “apparent”?

      It was readily apparent here, on Red Alert and elsewhere. It’s a rare and precious example of people realising that the real power lies with them still, even though the elites have concreted over it with rules and cultural pressure against “disloyalty”.

      Similar condemnation is happening on the right, tempered in many instances by the fact it’s their Emperor; but most realise it could just as easily have been not.

      Nothing apparent about it, IMHO. The awakening of democracy from a long, long sleep.

    His Majesty will be needing a collossal sized new throne in sit in, in parliament. 🙁

    @Blip, if you’re refering to the fact I’m an economic liberal I guess all I can say is that I have no interest in creating ructions in the Labour and Environmental movements, I simply want this law amended so the people in Canterbury gets the speed up they need while ensuring we still have some form (however reduced) of accountability and judicial review…
