Truth hurts

Laila Harre got her nose in a knot yesterday when John Key called Kim Dotcom her sugar daddy.

He is a political sugar daddy funding not just her but the Internet Party, all it’s candidates and at least one Mana one- Georgina Beyer.

But he’s not just paying Harre a salary he’s dressing her as well:

She looked swish in the Internet Party official pics and I wondered whether she’d also been seeing a stylist but she said, no, she just “did a big shop”. Where did she do her big shop? “At Smith & Caughey’s.” Good heavens. Who paid? Dotcom?

The truth hurt Harre but the story hurt Labour more.

It made three policy announcements yesterday and they hardly got a mention.

I was listening to talkback on the three and a half hour drive home from Christchurch last night.

The host asked if the sugar daddy story was important.

No-one said it was. When asked what did matter they talked about National policies that are working and Labour didn’t get a mention.

    Whatever it is Andrei, you can be sure the focus will be on the teacup storm and not the issues that really matter.

    Isn’t that the point? If we knew what they really had in mind nobody would have a bar of them.

    And of course our political journos are banal beyond belief.

    In truth I suspect Euthanasia is on the agenda for the next Parliamentary term but getting our politicians to stake their position on this will be for the most part like drawing teeth.

    Legalization of marijuana is on the way as well.

    Both could well be legislated before the election following this one but neither will get much of an airing on the stump

    This government has a very good record of both doing what it said it would do and not doing what it said it wouldn’t.

    I know you have very strong views on gay marriage but that was introduced by an opposition MP as a Private Members Bill and was a conscience vote not a party one.

    I am certain neither euthanasia nor legalising marijuana are on a National Party agenda.

    But that is how it is done these days – Sue Bradford’s contentious bill was just the same – remember

    And it will be thus for those matters I raised above…..

    When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

    Postscript: I don’t have strong objections to the legalization of marijuana but I do want it robustly discussed during an election campaign before any changes to the law are made…….
