will they be honorable

Big day today - Cabinet decides whether to take schedule 4 protected lands out of that protection so it can be mined for gold and coal today.

I've just heard key say that the hole at Waihi where they have cut into papatuanuku is a tourist attraction - what a dipshit key is, and don't forget he is the minister of tourism.

This is the cabinet

1 Hon John Key
2 Hon Bill English
3 Hon Gerry Brownlee
4 Hon Simon Power
5 Hon Tony Ryall
6 Hon Dr Nick Smith
7 Hon Judith Collins
8 Hon Anne Tolley
9 Hon Christopher Finlayson
10 Hon David Carter
11 Hon Murray McCully
12 Hon Tim Groser
13 Hon Dr Wayne Mapp
14 Hon Steven Joyce
15 Hon Georgina te Heuheu
16 Hon Paula Bennett
17 Hon Phil Heatley
18 Hon Pansy Wong
19 Hon Dr Jonathan Coleman
20 Hon Kate Wilkinson

Minister outside cabinet
21 Hon Maurice Williamson
22 Hon John Carter
23 Hon Nathan Guy

Hon Rodney Hide
Hon Heather Roy
Hon Dr Pita Sharples
Hon Tariana Turia
Hon Peter Dunne

There you go - they like to be called Hon for honorable - today will give us an idea of where they stand with that ideal but really the quality of the people mentioned above is pretty poor IMO and that doesn't bode well for their decision making.

Kia ora Marty,
I read the names on that list and feel myself sigh in sadness. I hold little hope they will have Listened to the voices of so many who want our wilderness left alone. The agenda of the Nats has always been clear, much like Hitler's agenda was perfectly clear when he wrote Mein Kampf 10 years before he came to power. There are those whom supported those ideas, and those whom refuse to believe such things could really happen, and a very few whom rebelled against the tide to their own peril. It did happen. And now the nats are making their own manifesto come to life here. I hope there are enough to be ready to rebel against the tide.

The time for 'honour' passed long ago. These men and women will get away with it if they can - that's it. No 'honour' involved.
I think that if a site (or sites) is chosen, the Government will have Bought Trouble.
