New Clothing Standards set by National Party

The National Party has set a new standard how it expects the lower classes to dress. National ministers Anne  Tolley and Party-leader-in-waiting, Judith Collins, began with this sexist attack on Green Party co-leader, Metiria Turei,


PM says ministers not bullying Turei


Obviously, Tories cannot abide poor folk and their elected representatives becoming ‘uppity’ and above their ‘station’ in life. This public excoriation of  Ms Turei is the Tory way of telling some stroppy “n—-r” to get back in line.

All dressed up as “political argy-bargy”, to make it seem like Parliamentary business-as-usual.

The Tories won’t be happy until Turei (and poor folk)  dress accordingly,


Right way and wrong way to dress


(Note; the above examples of Dress Standards for Poor People is a guide only. The National Party suggests sack-cloth, grass skirts, and rags are always fashionable amongst the down-and-out. Nudity is fine – especially for comely females in the presence of male National MPs. Any unemployed poor person wearing shoes – of any description – will be immediatly means-tested and their benefit halved. Obviously they are receiving far too much if they can afford shoes.)

    Indeed! Muriel Newman suggested years ago, that DPB and other beneficiaries make sandals out of car tyres, as people in 3rd World countries do (her answer to the cost of school shoes). That schools would send home children wearing car tyre sandals to school never crossed her mind, obvious;y!)

    Indeed, Debs. Muriel Newman (and other ACT-types) – quite, utterly mad.

    No wonder they don’t register in the polls any more. This is a political party of selfish fruitcakes. I suspect that the vast majority of New Zealanders do not want to live in their vision of New Zealand…

    Nice to see your blog still contributing to the political dialogue Frank!

    As for Collins – she is evil. She represents everything nasty, selfish, and closed-minded about the Tories. She is another Jenny Shipley , and god help us if voters are stupid enough to elect her.

    Good riddance to rubbish.
