Quote of the day

 At the end of the day I think the member actually does a disservice to the fantastic parents and caregivers out there, the overwhelming bulk of whom actually do provide their kids with breakfast and lunch. They do a damn good job, and the member should stop telling them that they do not. – John Key.

He was responding to questions from Metiria Turei about feeding children in schools.

    The John Key-led National Government at their very best – denying hungry children food.

    Proud moment, guys.

  2. Paranormal says:

    RG – so you condone the Greens approach – more bread and circuses.

    A typical cry to the emotions (who’ll feed the starving children?) without any real understanding or analysis of the issue and potential outcomes/unintended consequences of proposed solutions. Yet another greenwash.

  3. farmerbraun says:

    What do we expect from RG, apart from an outright distortion , if it is not a li?

    ” denying hungry children food.”

  4. farmerbraun says:

    It is of course a lie.

  5. Name Withheld says:

    As always you need to cut through the sanctimonious claptrap lies from green zealots like robertguyton to get nearer to the truth.
    “Rather than increasing breakfast consumption overall many children who previously ate breakfast at home appeared to swap location (substitution effect)”
    Lindsay Mitchell. as usual introduces some reason to counter the green moronic hysteria.

  6. farmerbraun says:

    But what about the grandchildren?
    Who will think of the grandchildren?
    C’mon RBG;RG; Metiria.
    We need something to lighten our morning after the comments from the FMOC, and the subsequent leap in the $NZ.

    Where did Material Girls starving thousands kids eat breakkie and lunch between Mid December and End of January.

    It must have been horrific when the emaciated little waifs turned up at all those schools.

    I guess I was extremely fortunate there were no riots when we boarders went to our dining room for lunch while the “day bugs” had to make do with pies and filled rolls from “Birdies Tuckshop”.

    Only a retard would think it was starvation that has children attending communal free food at school, nothing to do with comradeship and the mob.

  8. Ray says:

    Gravedodger. I very much doubt the luncheon fare at a 50’s boarding school would provoke envy, let alone riots. 🙂
    Papanui Road perhaps?

  9. Gravedodger. says:

    You may very well be right Ray, I couldn’t possibly comment but tended to use Normans Rd and Circuit St myself

  10. Ray says:

    Only a retard would think it was starvation that has children attending communal free food at school, nothing to do with comradeship and the mob.
    Quite so. The communal breakfasts are attractive to some kids today, whether they need the government feeding stations or not.
    After all, what kid would not want to imagine themselves at Hogwarts eating breakfast among all the other young wizards.
    From 51 to 58, Circuit Street was the route of choice for dorm feast supplies, GD.

  11. robertguyton says:

    Shameful responses from the well-fed “Homie-Tories”.
    Shameful stuff from your over-fed political representatives and shameful behaviour from the very wealthy John Key.
    Shame, really, all round.

  12. robertguyton says:

    “Quite so”, says Ray.
    Says it all, really. Sounds toffy, but there you are!
    Quite so

  13. JC says:

    I wonder who said this?

    “He warns over and over that land ownership is
    slipping rapidly from the hands of New Zealanders and calls the guidelines for overseas investment are a ‘whitewash’.
    Quite so.”

    JC

  14. Paranormal says:

    RG – shameful you promote breaking up of the family with your desire for the state to feed the children….

  15. Mr E says:

    One of these statements doesn’t match the others.

    The Green party supports – Farmers markets, food gardens and food garden education

    The Green party supports – Fair trading of food.

    The Green party supports Government hand-outs of food.

  16. robertguyton says:

    Paranormal – what tosh from a Tory-apologist!
    Mr E – none of your statements make sense – unless you mean the Green Party, but that’s not what you’ve written, so I’ll take it there’s nothing of substance in your claim.

  17. robertguyton says:

    JC – you wonder who said it? What were you doing, when you quoted the words, that you remained unaware of who was saying it?
    Were you in some sort of semi-conscious state?

  18. robertguyton says:

    UglyTory behaviour that prevents food getting to children that need it.
    That’s how it is on Planet Key.

  19. Paranormal says:

    So RG – you are happy to ignore the research in a true to form Green tosh sort of a way.

    The ‘caring’ uber socialists are happy to further degrade the social fabric by giving away free stuff and then are surprised when there’s a never ending demand for free stuff. http://lindsaymitchell.blogspot.co.nz/2015/03/raincoats-for-kids-who-already-have-them.html
    And nary a thought for the unintended consequences of their policy prescription.

    Typical of unreformed marxist apologists.

  20. robertguyton says:

    Another bitter, pinched retort from a deny-the-kids-food Tory supporter.

  21. Mr E says:

    Robert,
    You have been a promoter of ‘food forests’. Now you are a promoter of food handouts. Sounds to me like you have given up on the idea of individuals growing their own. Or have you just accepted the failed concept of wide spread food forests?
