    No loss.One of the PC Brigade. Why can’t we get rid of the other Green troughers like Jan Logie,Delahunty,Mathers and Turei plus toss in the ex-clown Gareth Hughes.
    As relevant to NZ as a flying saucer from Mars !!!!!!!!!!!

    Dave: Does this mean you move up a place?

  3. jabba says:

    OH NO

  4. jabba says:

    well Neil, Delahunty is the member for Mars

  5. Dave Kennedy says:

    JB, yes.

    Neil, Holly has a similar background to many on both sides of the house, brought up by a single mother in a state house and then worked hard to become a Rhodes Scholar and MP. Metiria Turei was similar within 10 years (after starting as a sole parent with no qualifications) she became a qualified lawyer and then an MP. These are highly intelligent and hard working people who have never forgotten where they came from. What they are all working for is a fair go for anyone to achieve success no matter what their humble beginnings.

    Holly was respected by all in Parliament for her fearlessness, commitment and intelligence. When more people understand (at a later stage) what she is currently dealing with they will be even more appreciative of what a remarkable young woman she is.

    There are hard working MPs on all side of the house and there are some who appear to do very little to justify the money spent on them. You may not agree with their politics but the work ethic of those you have listed means they do not deserve the label of ‘troughers’.

    “Ms Walker, who will still contest the Hutt South seat in order to help the Greens’ party vote, said she was announcing the decision with “real sadness”.
    She is going to what?????????????????????????

  9. Dave Kennedy says:

    As a non list MP and promoting the party vote, is there a problem with this?

  10. jabba says:

    ahhh, yeah. this is a great opportunity to blood the next greenie .. I assume there aren’t any in the Hutt so she is it.

  11. jabba says:

    in fact, she will be on the campaign trail not wanting people to vote for her .. what the hell?
    AND, what would happen if the good people of Hutt South saw what a great person she is and she got in .. what would happen then??
