I’m not taking up that bet. But it made me laugh after a hard weekend. as it perfectly reflects that way I feel about the breed.

After dealing with various ACToids here over the years, I’d have to say that party has a unique ability to concentrate and refine nutters.

Now they have become the political arm of the simplistic Sensible Sentencing Trust, the effect has become even more marked.

But it all really goes back to a single disease vector, who seems to be still doing some string pulling from the background in the current coup attempts against Rodney.

The source of the infection, now trying for 28 years of parliamentary effort to create the nutters of the right?

    28 ‘continuous’ years puts the situation in a deceptively rosy light. Roger Douglas was first elected to Parliament in 1969, which is 41 years ago by my count.

      Sorry corrected the post while you were commenting.

      I figure he is at about 23-24 years in there at present. I was considering him carrying on for another term……… argggh!

    So pleased to see this @ the ‘Standard’ – want all these lefties to know that their gal Helen tilted the scales down at Immigration so she could get the support of Islamic countries for her great big powerful position at the UN. Question is – did she ever disclose or discuss this biased policy with Labour voters????? – or with the other people of NZ ?????

    IrishBill: Oh no!!!!!! A conspiracy theorist!!!!!!!

    [lprent: Give him a break – I started it. I implicitly called Douglas a rabid monkey…. You can envisage the conspiracy theories starting right there… ]

      I know what you mean – next they’ll be letting in Genghiz Khan, the fools

      • rainman 2.1.1

        I’ve been there, the food’s not that great…

        • Cnr Joe

          too late, I just studied the snap of Douglas yv used – looks mongolian hordish to me

          • the sprout

            yes true, quite different from the clearly euro-fascist appearance of his party leader.
            perhaps that’s why they don’t get along?

  3. I dunno, I moved from the Labour party and was relieved to get away from some very poisonous people. Mind you, at the time there were a lot of us ex Labour refugees out there, hellbent on not joining National.

    Every party have their nutters, I am sure Labour have them too.

    • lprent 3.1

      Not that many any more. The clean out in the early 90’s into what became Act and New Labour left a party that was prepared to work together.

      Over the following decade the nutters who couldn’t work on a common cause, agreeing to disagree, got frustrated and departed for other parties.
