    Another dairy attack leaving people injured or killed by scumbags. I would prefer the scumbags dead.

      These Indians( I assume) took their beating like good Kiwi citizens. And we can promise them when the offenders are caught we will do our best to rehabilitate them and make sure they receive a short jail term so they can repeat their offending to the next poor SUCKER!

      And people wonder why I despise Liberals and support Garth McVicar.

      Arm these honest Kiwis. Let’s make these scumbags dead if they insist on hurting the innocent.

          What have you to say to the victims? What do you suggest for keeping shop keepers safe? What do you think would have changed in 20 years time regarding law and order?

            A few weeks back Al was all for smoke cannons now he wants the perps executed instead.

            Catching the perps and beating the shit out of them & then jailing them on White Island does have a certain appeal. But hang on I’ll read the article. See if anything else occus because I’m just winging it at the moment & my suggestion probably isn’t very practical or very likely to happen under Labour or National.

            Meantime what’s your plan for “making these scumbags dead” – and how likely is it to be implemented, do you think.

            Allow shop owners to do a course, and then carry guns.

            Here’s something along the lines of what I would envisage.

            ”Eligible employees would undergo 132 hours of training, including firearms safety and active-shooter drills; go through mental health screening, background checks, and drug tests.”

              Ok. Just dairy owners.
              And smoke cannons for petrol stations?

            “One person is fighting for their life after two people were stabbed during an armed robbery at an Auckland dairy on Tuesday evening. The incident happened at the Hylite Dairy on Great North Rd in Grey Lynn about 7.15pm. The diary has been cordoned off by police overnight.”

            Where is the camera footage so we can get it on the tv news tonight is what I would say.

    Nobody can convince me this man brings anything to a sane political discussion in NZ.

    Leighton Smiths opening rant is a laugh today,well 2 rants.A prisoners 21 year sentence is up and Leighton gives a subtle dig at Labour for wanting to empty prisons and a person sentenced to 5 years under the lenient National govt and released due to his sentence being up,and the rightwing knuckle draggers are ringing up howling in rage.The govt is following the law as the rightwing knuckle draggers would have to pay compo if the imprisoned person is detained illegally for longer than his sentence length.

          When it comes to law and order no political party cares except if law and order can be used for political gain.

        Leighton Smith and his callers might want someone to be able to tell victims that prisoners sentenced to, say five years, will actually be doing 30 years? Or want judges to give everyone sentenced 30 years in the first place?

          John Key hardly ran away. He resigned after many years of hard work as MP and PM.

      But Lurch.
      When you are a knuckle dragger dribbling from both side of your mouth is an evolutionary advantage.
      It saves wear and tear on your knuckles if they are lucubrated by a steady stream of drool .

          Spellcheck has changed lubricated to lucubrated, which means studying and writing, usually at night – not something the knuckle draggers are likely to do.

    just watching the general debate.. not only is Paula looking ‘Leaner in opposition.. but has also gotten MEANER’ too !
    must be her loss of ‘baubles’ ?

      Being in opposition clears the mind and the sinuses. Just what National needs. They have a 20 years stretch in government coming up. They need to rememeber the powerlessness of opposition and never forget it.

      If her overall weight is going down it’s probably to be expected her baubles will be too.
