Setting a (low) Standard

There's been a tragedy in West Auckland this afternoon, but over at The Standard, it's just another opportunity to sneer at John Key; check this out:


Is this a new low Standard?

Well he's got nothing else to do has he? He'll have been able to check Mt Albert for his leader too, on the way from his house to his own electorate.

This is diosgraceful from you Keeping Stock. People have died in Auckland and you politicise their deaths in your ongoing hatred of the Labour party and their supporters.
This really is the nasty blog.

Keeping Stock said...

@ Steve Jabs - deleted; offensive

@ Colin Silk - shoot the messenger, why don't you?

Grant M. McKenna said...

Bizarre, Mr Silk- it is "Tracey" and, to a lesser extent, "karol" who have politicised the tragedy.
It is they who have chosen to use this event to mock the PM. KS has simply pointed it out.

Keeping Stock said...

You're wasting your breath GMM. Mr Silk's crimson-tinited glasses don't allow him to see who is REALLY at fault here, so he's just lashing out.

Probably not. I don't think you can go any lower than the abyssal depth of Hell - and the Standard has been there for some time already.

Colin you deserve a medal for being the stupidest person in the NZ blogosphere.

I would suggest they have done Cunliffe no favours as well.

Keeping Stock said...

@ Colin Silk; just for perspective, can I tell you that IH Stewart is NOT a right-winger; credit to him for seeing what you cannot.

Good grief Keeping Stock.
There's been a tragedy in West Auckland this afternoon.

But over at the Standard!!!


Good grief.

@ Colin Silk - I stand by what I wrote. And interestingly, the offending comments have mysteriously disappeared. I hope that one of the moderators saw them, and felt the same way that I do, but I rather suspect that they were pulled to avoid collateral damage.

Whichever, this post has achieved its purpose.

The Standard authors waving corpses around to expose the ignorance of John Key?

That's not a new game they're playing. Meeting their own measure of ethical behaviour is not part of the rules.

I wanted to read about the dreadful tornado so I came here. What I found was this stupid political squabbling.
Come on Keeping Stock. Get real.
