Andrew Little’s ““We’ve just heard the voice of the fascist National Party,” comment has been reported and also posted about on Kiwiblog – Someone teach Mr Little what fascism really is.
Some comments were directed at Peter Dunne for voting against the bill – they were typical uninformed bashing. And they asked me why he voted against, so I’ve responded.
Andrew Little made a dickish comment. I think it reinforces an impression he is not future leadership material, but when you look at Cunliffe’s vapid and vitriolic style of criticism it can’t be ruled out in the current Labour party.
To the dopey Dunne bashers, I have no idea why he voted against it, but I can guess.
The defeat was not unexpected as a number of National ministers and employer groups have expressed disquiet about the bill being a step too far.
So his vote seems sensible to me. Coincidentally he may have done National a favour.
Moanolo’s cut and paste ” the perennial whore Dunne repositioning himself” is clearly wrong, especially when you look at what else was voted on and how he voted – Members’ Bills Shot Down.
Dunne also voted against Winston Peters’ Reserve Bank Amendment Bill presumably because it’s a dumb bill.
And he indicated (in the news) he will vote against Harawira’s Breakfast and Lunch Programmes in Schools Bill because he thinks it is “fundamentally flawed for a number of reason” and he thinks the current Government approach is cheaper and “a far more comprehensive and feasible approach”.
Perpetual Dunne bashers don’t bother to find out for themselves, they ask me to do it for them. It’s not difficult if you want actual facts to back your comments with. On the other hand facts prove them to be nothing more than pissy dissers so that probably explains it.
A hilarious response on Kiwiblog from ‘big bruv’:
Jesus wept!….”dopey Dunne bashers”?………..And you wonder you cop so much abuse on this blog.
Your arrogance is outstanding, matched only by Redbaiters. What on earth gives you the idea that the 99.02% of people in NZ are wrong about the political whore Dunne and you are right?
Dunne is in it for himself, always has been. What you and the other 0.08 of idiots who support him forget is that Dunne is only there because the Nat’s let him, Dunne has no right to vote against the government, none at all.
big bruv illustrates what I said – why let facts or the actual topic get in the way of a raving redbaiteresque rant.
Practising the Kiwiblog motto is easy. DPF should start direct marketing Kiwiblog Screen Wipes.
Dunne has no right to vote against the government, none at all.
Hilarious. If he votes with National he’s called a poodle, if he votes against he’s a traitor. And if he didn’t vote he’d be abused for sitting on the fence.
And here if I say something about him I’m abused. And if I don’t say anything about him I’m abused (as per the Little thread yesterday and many others).
And you wonder you cop so much abuse on this blog.
Ah, no I don’t wonder. You just have to look at those who do the abusing. Them without mirrors.
Dunne got enough votes in Ohariu to have a right to vote however he sees fit in Parliament. Unlike a few SpitLittles on Kiwiblog – the perpetually impotent.
