ed:..on q&a slater embraced nash and davis as his friends in labour..
..slater also said that he gets lots of dirt on labour..
..from his friends in labour..
..make of those two facts what you will..
..and you can bet that nash and davis aren’t filled with joy..
..at being name-checked by slater..eh..?
..and you can’t see that association doing their careers in the labour party that much good..eh..?
..as it shows them both in their true ideological-lights..
..and where they are is where most of labour now want to run away from..
..nash and davis..along with ‘chippy’ hipkins..are the younger members of that neo-lib/rightwing cabal that has ruled in labour since the days of roger douglas..
..and they all feel much closer to the far-right beliefs of slater..than they do to those on the left in their own party..
..and speaking of ‘chippy’ hipkins..
..the nation had the guaranteed-boredom of an encounter between ‘chippy’ and hekia parata..
..having seen them do battle far too many times in parliament..
..i know..that as a spectator..all you get from that is a splashing of some bad-smelling something-or-other..
..and yep..!..that was what they served up again..
..all you come away with is a nasty little mental-rash..
