If Only We Had A Prime Minister Like John Key…

…and not a wet PC-appeasing dishrag like Cameron:
Key went on a tirade after being questioned by Labour leader Andrew Little, telling Little “you back the rapists” , before being cut off by the Speaker, David Carter.
“Some of the [detainees] are rapists, some of them are child molesters, and some of them are murderers,” Key said. “These are the people that the Labour party are saying are more important to support than New Zealanders who deserve protecting when they come back here.”
Key told Labour MP Kelvin Davis, who has said the detentions make a mockery” of the Anzac relationship: “If you want to put yourself on the side of sex offenders, go ahead my son, but we’ll defend New Zealanders.”
Isn’t it great to have someone who stands up for women’s and children’s rights, ladies?

Ladies..?
On Wednesday, Green party co-leader Metiria Turei told the Speaker that as a survivor of sexual violence she was deeply offended by Key’s remarks: “As the victim of a sexual assault, I take personal offence at the prime minister’s comments, and ask that you require him to withdraw and apologise.”
I…

I … ummm… what?
Her comments were echoed by Green MP Catherine Delahunty, who was told by the Speaker to stop and sit back down. When other female MPS, including Labour’s Nanaia Mahuta, Clare Curran and Megan Woods, along with Green MP Marama Davidson repeated the call for Key to apologise with reference to their own assaults, Carter ordered them to stop, saying they were “flouting the rules” by claiming to make points of order.
And so light the blue touchpaper and stand well back, Mr Speaker!
Despite the warning, MPs continued to stand to urge the Speaker to take action. Green MP Marama Davidson was then thrown out of the House, followed by Poto Williams. At least eight others then chose to leave the debating chamber. They were joined by four male MPs, including Greens co-leader James Shaw, and are demanding Key apologise for his comments.
What on earth was this all about?
Delahunty said the MPs had walked out on behalf of women around New Zealand.
Really? What, the women of New Zealand just can’t wait to have all these rapists & child molesters back?

Really?
“We’ve walked out because every woman in this country needs to know that women parliamentarians will not put up with this,” she said. “We will not stand by and allow this to be bandied around parliament – this kind of abuse of people and way of approaching rape is simply unacceptable, and the prime minister has to be held to account.”
Gosh! I thought the best ‘way of approaching rape’ was to lock up rapists. But what do I know..?

Right, except John Key is arguing for the rapists and murderers (actually there are no Kiwi rapists on Christmas Island, but there are some on the Australian mainland awaiting deportation) to be deported back to his own country more quickly.

Whereas the opposition think it is fairer for those who have spent their entire lives in Australia and are Kiwis by passport only, to be allowed to return to their lives in Australia and are appealing to the Australian government to change their rules.

If every woman needs to know that leftie women parliamentarians are more concerned about the "rights" of convicted sex offenders, then it should make sure that in future in NZ there will be far fewer women parliamentarians.

Can we clone John Key for UK PM? They could have our PC spineless wimp in P/X.

I think that the silly girls are more upset that Key has a right wing solution rather than a right on solution. Somewhat akin to the Missouri University black lives matter crowd moaning about the Paris atrocity, actually claiming that worse is happening on US campuses. There's no arguing with these wilting petals is there?

@anonymous. Those people are kiwis because the idiots failed to get Aussie citizenship. New Zealand has an obligation to take them back. The majority of kiwis here hate the idea but support Keys views as them being oxygen thieves. Labour here believe the wastes of space ought to be allowed to stay in a country whose values they have abused. The Aussies don't want them either.

"Whereas the opposition think it is fairer for those who have spent their entire lives in Australia and are Kiwis by passport only..."

As QM points out, there's a solution within their own grasp, then, isn't there?

"...then it should make sure that in future in NZ there will be far fewer women parliamentarians."

Never seems to though, strangely.

"Somewhat akin to the Missouri University black lives matter crowd moaning about the Paris atrocity, actually claiming that worse is happening on US campuses."

Yup. The modern mantra, 'it's all about MEEEEEEE!'
