    About time this bloke did something to justify his exalted status within the Labor list.

    Lets see if he can keep some focus on the Turei/Sharples sellout spectacular as they’ll continue to blub on about what labor didn’t do for them etc etc.

    ‘Kiwi not Iwi’ has become ‘Iwi over less powerful Iwi’ and so the tribal disconnects gets a potential wedge coutesy of JK…….now that’s leadership !

    Agree with Shane on this what happens when carbon goes from $25 to $100 bucks a ton will the tree lord tribes come back a few years down the line wanting a top up?

  3. So the Maori party is the party of grievance and victimhood, eh? This is the first time I’ve heard Shane Jones speak — has he always talked in these terms?

      He used to be the Labour minister on ZB back in the day when they were in power. Was an arrogant wee sausage. Still is.

    I can agree. Saw this the other day. Down with any ETS. I have a prediction. If Nation pass this law, they are going to suffer greatly.

    John Key is getting lots of negative comments on his Facebook page re this as well. The next poll out will be interesting.

    Yes Pointer this is classic Shane Jones……thus my comments about keeping focus on the sellout spectacular rather than his none too hidden disgust at the MP and egotistical traits that detract from the issues.

    I don’t blame him for the emotion but it works against him as this requires intelligence and dilligence to effect the long term result……..etting rid of the currency trader and his corporate cabinet.
