What about the other workers?

Keeping Stock has found another SMOG (social media own goal)  from Labour:

 

The first blooper is that he’s moved health professionals and police to the the manufacturing sector.

The second is that by singling out just two groups of people he’s ignored all the others  in hospitals and outside who work through holidays.

What about the other workers – the ones in hospitality, media, retail, transport, travel, tourism, entertainment . . .

And let’s not forget farming.

Oh and politics – Cunliffe might have all the weekend off buy I know my MP, Jacqui Dean will be on duty at the the Mackenzie A&P Show today,

    Petty nit-picking and ungracious, Ele.
    David Cunliffe wishes workers (for example, nurses) and you leap up and down gleefully, finding ways to undermine his positive message – how very Christian of you. No doubt you followed the lead of that other “Christian” detractor, Keeping Stock.

    What is more egregious and offensive is the use of the term “happy holiday”. That term is hauled out at christmas and now it seems easter for fear of offending any one who does;t believe in the Christian Faith.

    It is Easter. Not just a holiday. It is a time for reflection and celebration, which it has been for my family for a variety of reasons.

    Try telling a Muslim that Ramadan is just a holiday, likewise the Indians with Diwali.

    Cunliffe is a charlatan and HP has every right to call him out, I would doubt anyone for a second thinks he has any real empathy with workers. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to discover Labour are outsourcing their IT support to India…!

    Indeed Quintin, Indeed,

    “Happy Holiday” makes me cringe.

    I’m sure its usage at Easter is of recent provenance.

    I am also astonished at how thoroughly the Christian origin and elements of this festival have been airbrushed out of public consciousness. Extraordinary.

    Anyway allow me to give you the Paschal Greeting

    Christ is Risen!

    Do you believe Key has?

    John Key clearly likes people, and people clearly like John Key, a sure sign that John Key is well endowed with human empathy.

    Indeed I’m sure his success in life is a result of his ability to empathise with people and to relate well with them.

    But on the other side of the scales things are more than balancing up.

    By 2030 China is on track to have 247 million Christians, ie, the largest Christian congregation in the world, right now South Korea is second only to the US in the numbers of Christian missionaries and Africa may have over 600 million Christians by 2025.

    By the end of this century there will probably have been several African Popes and African leaders of the Anglicans and other major denominations. The Asians will be represented too and one day NZ will have to adjust to the sight of Chinese missionaries peddling around the neighbourhood trying to convert the White heathens and in the US the South will finally defeat the North as South American missionaries move up converting as they go.

    I guess one of the burning questions of a generation hence will be when the Holy See finally gives up on an exhausted and aged Europe and shifts to Nigeria and whether it and the other European faiths can withstand the enormous forces of the evangelists and the Pentecostals.

    Of course, the Muslims will be looking over their shoulders at this phenomenon too, already one of their African Imams has averred that 6 million African Muslims move to Christianity each year. To paraphrase an old saying.. people may not be interested in religion, but religion remains interested in them..
