Predictable pack of pricks---the national Party and their shameful deal!

What more can I say about this spineless morally deficient party and their bully of a Prime Minister!
Why did they bother to support a move that the vote for the Conference Centre  was going to be a 'conscience vote? What a piteous excuse for democracy. Sure party politics is a reality but in a conscious vote, one would expect a little more lassitude. Before you say---'What about Labour?' Well at least their leader, the much maligned David Shearer, had the decency to announce that his members could vote as they saw fit. John Banks and his non party sided with the Government and the soon to be gone Peter Dunne licked up large.
 I see on the news tonight that Peter Dunne's electoral office was the target of a hoax bomb. I don't condone hat but it indicates the level of disquiet in his electorate.
We need to remember this latest cynical action the part of National and its lackeys at the election next year. Labour, for it's part must put aside it's internal (or do I mean 'eternal') fighting and get alongside the Greens and deliver us a better future. New Zealand First will of course go along with what ever its flamboyant leader decides. As for the Maori Party---well maybe Hone will be in charge by then and at least with him, we know where he stands!
Angry words? Yes, because I care about where we are heading. Left wing utterances, I hear. BS----It just looks that way because the direction we are heading is closer and closer to one where the gap between the rich (the top 5%) and rest of us is deeply worrying. Kohn Kay is but a tool for those who wish us to be docile acceptors of this sad future. Behind that smile is a man taking us to an unpleasant future. If we don't care, we get what we deserve. If we don't act, the we deserve what we get.

Gays not welcome says a Whangarei lodge, 'but we are sorry.' Really?

Some battles are just not worth fighting. Take for example the Whangarie lodge that has made it clear that they do not want gay couples staying there. God alone knows why they think it may be bad for business, but nothing the gay community or those who seek a fair deal for everyone may say will make one iota of difference so they may as well just suck it up and ignore such businesses.
Why the hell would anyone gay want to stay at their establishment if they are clearly not welcome other than to prove a point that may be worth making but not fighting? There are plenty of other options available. Personally, I would find staying there totally unenjoyably anyway. Imagine them being forced by law to accept all-comers and then put up with their negativity and probable poor service.
Some battles are important and the bigger pictures are those that need fighting. Leave these ‘throwbacks’ to their own devices. They have more than likely shot themselves in the foot anyway. What goes around comes around. So, Whangarie lodge or whatever you call yourselves---stay with your prejudice and dark fears and enjoy your narrow-minded isolation. Just don’t drag (excuse the pun) the rest of us down to your level. We shall get on with enjoying life--- but not with you as part of it----simple.
Yes, the larger battle against narrow thinking and prejudice in any form continues. I don’t seek to change the minds of those that are beyond ‘change;’ there is so much else to fight out there that really matters!
