Labour goes power-mad, deems stealing legal 

First our stole from taxpayers, using the public purse to campaign. Now, they’ve passed , deeming their actions legal. What heck sort of is this? How would you like it, politicians, if someone came and burgled from you and then his actions were deemed legal, making him immune from prosecution?
   When the was drafted, the Founding Fathers made sure that such legislation could never happen. It looks like , with all our pride about being first in giving women the right to vote, or voting a transsexual into public office, is a few centuries behind the States on a sense of the rule of law—and are engaging in the sort of thing that feudal lords did.
   Result: any goodwill we had generated in the last century can rapidly disappear and ’s charges of the Labour Party being will look tame. I suspect we are already the laughing-stock of nations among constitutional experts, with the sort of image normally reserved for Communist banana republics. Perhaps this is an aim of the ’s as she settles in to her final term and goes power-mad?
   And Brash, as the Leader of the Opposition, will gain massive brownie points by opposing the legislation—even if his party’s minority will mean this is an ineffective show. Still, the National Party misspent in the region of $11,912—not Labour’s $824,524 or New Zealand First’s $157,934 (which that party challenges and has so far refused to pay back), meaning the parties in power are the two that have stolen an and have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar. I have no confidence in the New Zealand , and on hearing this news, I believe the only people who will want to deal with us are money launderers and drug lords. Pity we can’t do a -style recall.
   The only person who can stop this now is the Governor-General, and a petition was recently circulated here. I am not sure if the bill has already been given Royal Assent, but if the G-G wants to show his patriotism, I suggest he uses his legal skills and stop this POS from being passed. Let the politicians feel constipated—and under threat. my ass.
   Somehow, I doubt we will see sacked and HE , the Governor-General, will not “do a John Kerr” to avoid a constitutional chaos so early in his term. If he did, he would have public support. Still, I ain’t sitting down when I know I should do something, and encourage all freedom-loving, fair-minded to sign the petition.

Sorry to hear of Labour's shenanigans. Good luck putting up the good fight. We've had plenty over here in the U.S. too. The big question for us now is the national election in November. The effects of that election could be enormous and costly. We'll see what happens.  
I notice a shift to the left when it comes to media coverage and that is disturbing. Even the President’s equating Iraq to Vietnam, intended or not, has been picked up by the MSM here. These are not good signs for the west (and the US) establishing a useful base in the Middle East as we have in Korea or Germany to ensure global stability.
   I can only hope that we get these corrupt liberals out of power here—they are dangerous for business, and now, they are dangerous for the rule of law. They are corrupt at worst and stupid at best—I cannot think of too many good things to say after they attempted this ex post facto bill, one that would be laughed out of Congress in your country.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
