    What a choice!!! A party led by a guy who likes spaghetti on pizza or a party that's only chance of winning is by being propped up by a benefit fraud and NZ's answer to Donald Trump.

    Well, I guess there's always the Gareth "Death to all cats" Morgan Party.

    Someone wake me up when it's over please!!!

    I can see a Brexit and Trump moment coming.
    When they start mentioning Winston Peters for Prime Minister then that is a signal voters (and journos) are going for the sound bite candidates, of which Winston is the master.
    Another of those "sound biters" is Andrew Little. Unfortunately he has been in his job long enough now people are seeing through him, he even has to rely on Jacinda Ardern who doesn't even have to give a sound bite, she just smiles.
    At least Bill English doesn't say much at all. That might get my vote.
    Scary times actually, the word is Chinese people are out of the housing market until after the election and they can see what is going to happen.

    Pretty hard to get excited about the shit sandwich/giant douche options we're getting served up.
    FFS Labour didn't even want Andrew Little last election, he was so far down the party list he didn't even make parliament till they had a count back a couple of weeks later, then suddenly he's the pick of the litter? Fuck off.

    Bill English, Mr fucken personality, but at least at the moment he doesn't want to borrow billions.

    The Greens, led by a lying lawyer that thinks fraud is ok if you want something and you meet the correct level of poverty, so she can piss off with her invisible co leader, and please take all the glutten free, vegan urban hippies with ya. Fucken Lucy Lawless, lets protest mankinds over use of oil by chugging around the southern oceans in a shitty old diesel boat doing sweet fuck all other than writing a blog about seasickness, but make sure I'm back in port in time to jump on a jet plane to fly to Comic con to meet all the Xena fans when they climb out of their parents basement. Stupid "I'm a celebrity so I'm smarter than you" bitch.

    Then there's good ol Winnie, like Bruce said, good for sound bites but fuck all solutions, been in parliament for forty years, the only nest feathered, his.

    Gareth, at least knows how to manage money, and I'm a dog person, so he's probably got the most going for him with me, then he opens his mouth.

    Jonno may as well run, hopefully he can at least get the weather forecast right, would make planning my week easier.

    Hey LG, do you reckon I need to take the test or am I too much of a fence sitter to get a result?

    Who can forget ol Nanchos Half a Sandwich or what ever his name was, I don't need a cycle helmet, I just wrap my dreads around my head and my hemp suit will protect the rest of me. That arsehole should have been locked up when he broke into Ag Research, and ripped up all those potatoes, lets not try to make a better potato to help end world hunger because it may cause cancer when your 70 years old, it's so much better to die of starvation at 4 because at least you'll be healthy and cancer free.

    I have actually met Nandor Tanczos. He is a very intelligent, gentle guy with honestly held beliefs. I was impressed by his honesty, he was no fake. I don't smoke dope, never have and never will, and I am not in the pro cannabis lobby. I will never agree with his stance on cannabis, but I have met a lot less impressive politicians than him, and I do agree with his stance on genetic engineering.

    Just thought I would share that with you.:)

    So you believe that it's fine to break the law by breaking into a facility and destroying years of legal and government backed research because you think it's not right, is OK.

    What's your thoughts on defrauding the government by claiming benefits you aren't entitled to but feel you want anyway?

    How about medical research that requires these types of experiments to discover things like polio vaccines. Destroy that to?

    That's the problem with you hippies, always going off half cocked without understanding the question let alone the answer, most of the veges you vegans eat have been domesticated and changed by humans over the years, through genetic engineering, carrots were purple, tomatoes were tiny, corn looked nothing like what you eat today and I'm pretty sure there aren't herds of tofu roaming wild in the hills of Asia.

    Maybe you Green voters should stick to the shit you know, like banning Dihydrogen monoxide.

    I don't approve of breaking the law. I just said I had met the guy and he was not a bad person, or a fake.
    I don't vote Green, but have met many Green politicians. IME they are not a lot different to those from other parties. A mixture of people who genuinely believe in their cause (the few), some who like the publicity, some who think it is a way into power, some who have nothing else to do with their time, some who think they can change the world for the better, oh and I forgot the last bit, the successful ones especially are ruthless bastards. Just saying like. Democracy is a very mediocre form of government, we might see that this year.

    Little known fact that at every locations in the States where shootings have occurred in schools and workplaces, DHMO was present.

    Well then maybe that genuine nice guy should have rode into parliament on the coat tales of some political party vote and done something about it through the proper channels then, not cause wanton destruction of somebody else's life work.

    What's happened to that knob gobbler anyway, got a haircut and a real job I hope.

    I also believe it's often used by terrorists prior to, and during their attacks.

    Yeah good one... A Mother lying to provide money to feed her baby or a prime minister who fraudulently claimed $900 p/w subsidised allowance for a house actually owned. Not too mention Paula Bennett history with the DPB and then pulling the ladder up.
    or ex cigarette lobbyist Todd Barclay on $3k a week to do nothing.

    What a party of scum.
