Michael Laws Is A Fucking Tool

Postby Henry Dorset Case on Thu 3/Sep/09 11:53am

I mean really.

thats all I had to say. but the gang insignia free "White is Right" Whanganui, the fucktard rants on his stupid radio show, commissioning a sculpture with public funds then refusing to display it, Wanganui/Whanganui and now bullying schoolkids.

what's next? barbecuing puppies while receiving oral sex from a dolphin after setting fire to a nature reserve then stripmining it?

And of course Ive bought into it by drawing attention to him.

But seriously, what a fuckwit.

He's always been a controversial political and media personality, and that's all well and good; everyone's entitled to an opinion, but he's pushing his luck. There's such a thing as an appropriate, rational, democratic decision, and then there's blatant shit stirring, which is totally counter-productive

I like him. He's absolutely right that 12 year old kids couldn't give a shit about how Wanganui is spelt.

Indeed, I'm more pissed at the teacher who got his kids to do that dirty work.

Laws is just as much of a retard for allowing himself to get sucked in by such an elementary ruse.

Reading that story I do think that whoever put the kids up to writing that BS to him is the biggest ass...

But Laws is still a chump.

Yep he is a total fuckwit, but.... he is also doing a good job of mayor - gives Wanganui/fonganui exposure - why else would Wanganui/fonganui be in the news.

He's a sucessful mayor in much the same way Shadbolt is. (except Shadbolt is kind of likeable)

Yea I think he could've approached it better, but it is a nice change to see a politician having a view of their own rather than just saying "yes, ok, mmm hmmm, I hear what you're saying" to avoid stepping on toes (ie - losing votes).


I quite liked the "Do you honestly think that children give a continental about how Wanganui is spelt? Children this age care about Harry Potter." :lol:

Is he is a good mayor? It's easy to think that he might have Wanganui's best interests in mind but I'm not entirely convinced he hasn't got his own agenda. There's no doubt Wanganui requires a strong leader and that it requires some serious guidance to alleviate the negative aspects within it's community but Laws' strategy is pretty questionable

This is his 2nd term as mayor.

I do some work in Wanganui and opinion of him seems divided - polarised even.

He generates a lot of debate - which is healthy. He doesn't shy away from being anti-pc. Undoubtably he has got his own agenda, however regardless of what side you're on, people are now discussing the 'hard' issues, that in a lot of communities get swept under carpets and ignored.

Having said that I friggin hate the guy!!!!

That's a good point. Regardless of Laws' methods, integrity etc, his presence in the media has drawn attention to some key issues. Lets say hypothetically he doesn't get elected for a 3rd term, his successor's at least got a good framework to build on, albeit a messy one
