Labour's Hunua candidate, the perennially young Jordan Carter, has made the first foray to inoculate himself from many 'myself when a tad young and resentful' Carterisms that will litter the internet for years to come.
Stuff like "I wouldn’t go into business if my life depended on it," not realising that it does. Or "I find trade immoral," a statement that trades on both envy and resentment. Or “achieving a worker’s paradise,” which he's stated as his political goal. Or of the need to “rip away” the “non-political” “fig leaf of Parliamentary services”? What did he mean by this sort of nonsense? Who knows. But when he said that and much more like it he was, he tells us, an "angry young activist" who meant it, whereas now he's "older and wiser" he's embarrassed about it. Since he's braindead and just twenty-six (and still looks like he's about twelve), the explanation doesn't even stack up, particularly when it resonates so well with the statements of his political masters.
All you need to know is that he doesn't resile from any it. Sure, he's embarrassed about it now he's"taking politics seriously," ie., seeking to suck off the taxpayer's tit permanently, but it's clear enough he still means every word.
PS: Today he's told readers "I'm not interested in money or profit." Doesn't change, does it.
