This week's nomination for "Turd" of the week is Labour list MP Shane Jones who . has been stood down while the Auditor-General investigates his role in the Bill Liu passport case. Leader David Shearer called in the Audit Office afternoon as pressure mounted on Mr Jones to explain why he granted Liu citizenship in 2008 after over-ruling the advice of immigration officials.Liu - also known as Yong Ming Yan - is on trial for passport fraud and a verdict will be delivered tomorrow. The turgid waters of shit creek are once again swirling around the ankles of Labour's former minister of porn who was forced to admit last year that he'd used a taxpayer funded credit card to fund a night of xxxx rated entertainment.

I'd be very disappointed if this forum became a place for political derogation such as the above. Is it compulsory for example for members to be against the partial sale of assets? Truth being a primary objective of this forum, political sloganeering is rarely true to the principle. "selling off New Zealand" is case in point. Let's keep to a standard of 'supremacy of truth'. And any fake attempt at calling it 'humour' doesn't cut it.

I'd be very disappointed if forum members it did not take a dig against the likes of John Banks, Peter Dunne & Jonkey who in my opinion well deserve random ridicule. I know Peter Dunne & I've spent many hours shaking his Pansy Wong hands in an attempt to get him to follow the primary objective...the truth. But when absolute proof was presented to him that Parliament had been lied to- he caved. So as well as my personal knowledge of Mr Dunne's complete lack of integrity, its safe to say that the other 99.5% of the voting public Kiwis would agree with me. Lest we forget-these clowns are our lawmakers! and this is a place where opinions about politicians and their policies should be allowed to roam free...without any suggestion of compulsion.

Given that the people you are taking the piss out of, commanded 51 percent of last year's popular vote (a New Zealand record), you're probably offending 51 percent of the membership of this forum. Given a forum membership of 2, I suggest that you might have your priorities wrong. There is a time and place for everything. I asked once politely for you to desist from rudeness to others who might not share your political view. Second time round, your comment is just plain stubborn and rude.

Try posting your justice issues on a political message board, and see how well they go down. Keep your political muckraking off this one.

Hello again, I suggest you read John Ralston Saul, I'm particularly fond of one of his essays which argues that rudeness is an essential element of proper debate..otherwise you just end up with a pack of incestuous dag ridden mongrel wombat muppets, patting each other on the back.(sorry I mean politicians) Face it, there is only one honest man in Parliament, and that's Hone Harawira, personally I'm not a fan of Hone's politics-but at least you know where the man stands.

The rest of them deserve to be subject to satire & ridicule, if political promises were subject to the Fair Trading Act, Labour & National would be forced out of business. As for your suggestion to try to post justice issues on political boards & the predictable reaction ... are you saying that politicians should not be criticised about making stupid laws, or having the law applied to their actions as in the Hujich Affair (http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/6556244/Petition-stalks-Banks-Brash)?

I've been on the boards since 1994, and nz.politics then was largely under the thumb of David Farrar, who to did his best to avoid allowing his paymasters to suffer the rudeness that is an essential element of debate, the same applies today.

As for a political viewpoint, I would suggest that anyone supporting Dunne,Banks,& Jonkey clearly suffers from amnesia too!

If you are not capable of having your opinion challenged, this forum is not the place to be.

Jian Yang - Asshole of the Week- thanks to


Last week, the NZ Herald reported:

The Prime Minister has been asked to investigate one of his MPs who allegedly refused to insulate his rental property because he couldn't get a big enough public subsidy.

During a Herald on Sunday investigation, Mt Wellington tenant Joshua Tuitupou said National MP Jian Yang told him he had to get a Community Services Card before the MP would get the home insulated; otherwise, he said, it was too expensive.

If a tenant has the low-income health card, their landlord can claim a subsidy of up to $2500 on retrofitting insulation to the house. Without the card, the maximum subsidy is $1300.

Labour housing spokeswoman Annette King has written to John Key saying taxpayers would find it "unacceptable for an MP to arrange their affairs to provide a personal financial advantage for themselves".

"This allegation requires investigation as, if correct, it reflects on all Members of Parliament."

Jian Yang earns $141,800 per year for being a National list MP. He has recently received a pay rise of $7000, which would take a full time worker on the minimum wage three months to earn. Clearly Yang can afford to pay the extra $1200 it would cost to insulate the house he's renting to Joshua Tuitupou.

This is the type of controversy that gives politicians a bad name. Not only are they living the high life on the taxpayer dollar, in the case of Jian Yang, it appears they're not willing to adhere to National's policy nor repay their social obligation to New Zealand.

To require a tenant to acquire a community services card to gain the full subsidy before insulating his rental property thus manipulating government policy for financial gain is a gross abuse of power as a landlord. It's also an abuse of power as an MP and as a result of that corruption; Yang is clearly not suitable to be a representative in government.

Yang has failed to comply with the principles of public service, with the Cabinet Manual (PDF) stating:

Ministers are responsible for ensuring that no conflict exists or appears to exist between their personal interests and their public duty. Ministers must conduct themselves at all times in the knowledge that their role is a public one; appearances and propriety can be as important as an actual conflict of interest. Ministers should avoid situations in which they or those close to them gain remuneration or other advantage from information acquired only by reason of their office.

John Key needs to act to ensure members of his political party uphold the highest standards so that public opinion of politicians doesn't decline even further. Unfortunately Keys previous failure to ensure MPs are held to account means it's unlikely anything will be done about Jian Yang's corruption. What an asshole!
