Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, to muse, amuse or bemuse.

    Ele, are you going to have a go at Mojo Mathers, the way John Key’s special confident, Cameron Slater has?
    Shameful. Sick. Nasty.
    John Key’s close association with Cameron Slater is going to hurt the party badly, Ele, take it from me. This latest attack on a Green MP – Andrew Geddis has posted on the situation at Pundit, http://pundit.co.nz/content/lets-all-pick-on-the-deaf-girl
    – and his view is one that will be widely shared to the detriment of ‘your team’ – will strengthen support for the Greens, so thanks
    Jordan Williams and Cameron Slater – go hard boys, you are lifting the Left Wing up and into power with your every nasty utterance.
    Waiting for Keeping Stocks’ post on the latest Green outrage”…

    Hmm, the PM mentions that he talks to Slater and the Nats go further ahead in the latest poll.

    Red Russel does a deal with Kim Dot Com to sell Justice and the Greens lose 50% support in the same poll.

    As far as Mathers is concerned there will be those who couldn’t care less and those who wonder why she didn’t write something for the Wairarapa community paper instead of talking on a tiny radio station where no deaf person is likely to hear her.. particularly when it will take the annual carbon offsets of several indigenous forest hectares to cover the cost of her travel.

    Cameron is to National what Kim Dotcrim is to the Green s Bobby .. your constant linking of Cam to JK is just plain stupid BUT hey .. that’s your MO.
    Mathers is like all the other appalling Green MP’s flying all over the place leaving behind a MASSIVE carbon footprint but there you go.

    The “Scarlet Pimply Nell” returns from yet another proclaimed toy tossing to accuse our wonderful host of something not yet happening.

    Ms Mathers chose to travel to Masterton for one hour on a wireless that would count it’s listeners often on one finger.

    With the often preachy chastisement of carbon footprintsthat come as part of the ‘package of idiocy’, please tell ,dear Robert why with the technology available Ms Mathers could not have used a studio in her home city, employed a signer and facetime or skype and remained true to her oft repeated mantras on travel, Carbon footprints unnecessary travel, planet saving et al.
    My quick calculations came to almost $500 cash.

    I am understanding the lady in question you raised here wanted to,
    (a) be treated no differently apart from equipment and technology available to perform her job,
    (b) represent all disabled in our often capricious and illogical mindset.
    (c) be allowed to just get on with it.

    You are struggling for traction in your trolling, waiting for the next toy toss with an increasing expectation.
