The scab thing would be an open wound for those left exposed by their departure. We're now into the personal stuff & it'll always be ugly.
I wonder if a few think things have gone too far to the right with TSA, the arrests and want to bring Labour down as all acts must have consequences?
Even in the knowledge that is a gift to National.
Civil war comparisons are a little early.
The arrested claim to be pasifists and not involved in revolution.
A little planning was missing, not pretty but crowd barriers were needed. That would have brought the cops out of the reach of any offending halitosis.
Having protested party meetings myself the idea is to be heard inside & disrupt the pleasantries. I've been upto the glass windows with cops watching on. Why did they insist on creating a human barrier & resulting tension?
Jill as a labour party member was a target of the protest irrespective of her personal stand point the party was the target of the protest to yeld would be to yeld to the party especially as she is a recent convert so "Scab" is fitting as well.
The issue at hand should be the assult.
Mallard did good in fronting up - Richards well not so good.
Your real name is?
