    So many ills for the board and Winston to consider.

    It looks like we will get medical m.

    Thank you for all you did Helen. Rest in peace.

    Always thought of Helen, and missed very much by the many. Still looking after us with timing, no doubt the $20 an hour man would have thought about you today also 🙂

    Kia Kaha, Helen. She is and will continue to be sorely missed. What a duo she and Jacinda would have made.

  4. She was around so much she became part of the political / industrial furniture over the years ,.. but our war with the neo liberal , and those body’s that constructed it ( looking at you , New Zealand Initiative ) will carry on despite Helen’s passing.

    That’s what she would have wanted.

    So lets do this .

    Helen Kelly certainly is missed. How valuable she would be now as Labour stands on the cusp of another sellout/term of neoliberal government. I am sure Helen would be telling Jacinda to keep the faith with the proletariat – even if they don’t know they are the proletariat. And if Winston picks the Nats, then Helen would tell Jacinda to get on and rebuild her Party’s links with the proletariat so she can lead a legitimate government through the 2020s. Perhaps Helen is channeling these messages from the Progressive Movement’s Wing in Valhalla (NB: Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble – don’t bother applying when your time comes. You’ve already been blackballed).

    What a brave and inspirational lady Helen was – yes Jacinda could have done with her wise counsel and her courage as well. She is sadly missed and this country is the worse for her loss. Fly free Helen and watch over us.

    We owe it to Helen to rid this beautiful country of this toxic National Government poisonous intent and creulity to humanity.

    Let us have a new fresh Government full of the a warmth and caring that was Helen Kelly, so we can heal the wounds of nine years of harm done by a arrogant decietful government without any heart or soul for our humanity.

    Rest in Peace dear helen.

    ‘Lets do this’ for Helen.

    I love Helen’s amazing spirit, she has made me so aware of the right to fight the good fight , to be human , decent kind and caring in a less than optimal world. What an inspiration.
