Andrei New Zealanders sold down the river by Nick Smith

Hide the Decline

Well well well; in breaking news the Government it has the numbers to pass the ETS under urgency after cutting a deal with the Maori party.

Here are the key features

  • A Treaty of Waitangi clause in the emissions trading legislation.
  • The government paying for iwi representatives to travel to Copenhagen for world climate change talks next month.
  • Agreement to continue funding the Enviro-schools programme
  • A bigger allocation of carbon credits for the fishing industry and agreement that they will be paid to quota holders instead of fishing vessel owners. A number of iwi have large fishing quota.

If there was any doubt in your mind that National was Labour lite that is now completely dispelled. They are as useless as tits on a bull pandering to special interests just like the other bunch.

Why does this need to be passed under urgency? We all know why don't we. The Pseudo science upon which this legislation is predicated is collapsing, revealed to be what any scientifically literate person has known for sometime, to be founded on very dodgy assumptions at best and perhaps outright fraud.

And Roger Pikia and Chris Karamea Insley get to go to Copenhagen on the taxpayers dime and posture with all the posers there, courtesy of Nick Smith

Dr Smith said he made "no apology" for the decision, saying the two men had relevant experience and as indigenous people would be able to strongly put the case to developing nations about the need to change the forestry rules.

Well we have surely got a good deal here haven't we folks? Further growth of the parasite class at the expense of the productive. Parasites eventually kill their hosts and the Nick Smith's ETS just might be the final straw for the productive elements in Kiwi society.

Great post. And I 'borrowed' your pic of the odious Smith for a motivational poster over at CR.

It seems to me that the obstinate refusal to reverse the anti-smacking law was an ominous sign of things to come, such as this piece of idiocy.

Wish you'd stuck with Labour now?

For me, Nope.

KG said...

Nope. The fact that this lot are as bad as the old lot doesn't make me prefer Marxism flavoured corruption and arrogance, C.O.

Tanya Stebbing said...

Corruption and arrogance...yup, that's NZ politics for you. They're both the same to me, Nat/Lab.
