Well I guess you could say Colin Craig has done us all a wonderful favour by coming out early and exposing to the entire country what ignorant twat he really is. It seemed to me that at the start of the week he was positioning himself nicely as a potential successor to the rather sad and pathetic ACT party, which was lying in tatters with only the lonely figure of John Banks keeping them afloat and bringing them down even further at the same time. However, his comments this week on the promiscuity of New Zealand women, really blew the lid on who he really is and indeed the sort of people he stands for. I am reasonably confident that his chances of election anywhere are now close to nil. I won't go into a rant and counter attack about the problems with his statement, as I think it has all been said this week before me. But let me just say, that it takes two to tango and even more importantly, let's not make being sexually active some sort of terrible thing. Also, I will point out, that we live in a society so that we can all benefit from the things this brings. Why should we not do as much as we can to assist and ensure where possible that the conception of children is a planned thing which will result in a wonderful result for both parent and child. Surely, everyone will be better off with that outcome. I will also note this should be at the individuals discretion and through a conversation with THEIR medical professional. Not as a way of the government controlling the more vulnerable parts of society.
I do not subscribe to the conservative clap trap argument that always goes something along the lines of, " I don't use it or want it, therefore I should not pay for it". That's not living in a society buddy, that's living on your own island and I suggest if that is your attitude then you piss off and go to one.
Save to say that the above, combined with his views on gay marriage and apparently short people, I think will relegate him to the ranks of the lunatic fringe, where he rightly belongs.
Here ends the rant...
