I have been watching the Labour leadership battle with a great deal of interest. It is clear Shane Jones is emerging as the peoples prince. He has always been a classy orator in both Maori and English. He appears lazy but that's because he is inherently a very smart man - intellectually fecund in fact. He was born to rule.
Shanes crime was never about the porn. It was about expecting the taxpayer to foot the bill even if he paid back the charges eventually.
Yet it seems to be the fact he watched porn that dogs him . The irony is that the heavily pornographic novel 50 shades of grey is a world wide best seller. Millions of sticky fingers turned the pages as readers became engrossed by its scintillating romp in the musky world of slap and tickle. The fine line between pleasure and pain was bolded in everyday ink. Now it is to be made into a movie - thus mainstreaming the masterbatory murk.
So Shanes guilty pleasure, if indeed that is what it was, will soon be available at Video Easy for all the aunties to watch.
Labour is such a broad church encompassing vast differences in the religion of lefty politics that this race could well see all three candidates get close to 30 percent of the vote each . And as the factions bow to such very different political idols - it is unthinkable that either Robertson or Cunliffe will bow out at the 11th hour if it looks like Jones is gaining too much support. Dogged by Dogma they are.
