QUOTE OF THE DAY: Politics as self-defence

_Quote We are often implored ‘not to be political’ when we approach policy subjects that affect our lives and livelihoods.
Particularly business people are often requested to ’stay out of politics.’
This would be a reasonable request if, ‘politics would stay out of business.’”
                            -
Ron Manners, “Should We All Become Political

Someone should have sent that quote to Therese Gattung when she was pretending to herself that David Cunliffe wouldn’t molest her company if she just played nice.  (Q: How do you get a nice small business?  A: Take a large one, and make David Cunliffe the minister in charge.)

The take-home message here: If appeasement of the looters didn’t work for NZ’s (formerly) largest company, it sure as hell ain’t gonna work for you.
