Seeing as Zet’s taken to writing serious posts these days, I thought I’d try my hand at a few wee gripes:
– I see Larry Baldock’s still crying about the stupid, leading question on the smacking referendum being ignored, while Family First continues to run full page ads in the newspaper whining that the Government won’t listen to same stupid, leading referendum question.
Don’t these people have anything better to do with their time? The way they’re carrying on you’d think their Christian fundamentalist backers in the US were demanding a return on their investment.
– Is it just me or does anyone else find it kind of repulsive that in the same week it’s revealed Telecom CEO Paul Reynolds is screwing Kiwis out of $7 million a year, Business Roundtable director Roger Kerr devotes his entire Dom Post column to complaining that the minimum wage is too high?
For some context, it takes Paul Reynolds a day and a half to make what a person on the minimum wage earns in an entire year.
– Do you reckon next time Matt McCarten wants to go on Morning Report as a political commentator attacking Len Brown’s candidacy for Auckland Supermayor he could declare his vested interest as a key backer of prospective rival left candidate Mike Lee? Just sayin’.
