We can see the posters with their heads up the unions backside so far, it seams to be Simon Whipps speaking in the interests of the overseas Aussie Union, not NZ.Jacksons Hobbit film will be a failure? Yeah right. Even though the release of the movie not over it has already grossed in the top 10 movies of all time.Yes we can see he is such a failure!The law change just defined the grey area of NZ law, that didn't distinguish between a empoyee and a contractor, its someting that has been a grey area since Labour repealed the Employments Contracts Act and threw democracy under a bus and ran over it, making unions compulsory again to give their buddy unions more union dues! Yes it was all about money, the union dues money. Through NZ the union dues have cost billions and been a parasite feeding and destroying jobs thorugh industrial action. The unions need to move on from 15th century Stand and Deliver tactics to work for the benefit of businesses and their empoyees, as a good business will pay well, but a dead business has only unemployed.NZ already gained millions from the deal as GST and PAYE from making the hobbit already total over $100 mil collected, which more than pays ALL the concessions given to Warners. Lets not forget, the biggest concession of the Hobbit, the 15% tax rebate was signed not by Key, but by Labour. Even $1 billion revenue and Warners still probably haven't made a profit, as revenue is not profit. The Hobbit was an expensive productions with most of the money spent in NZ for NZ gain, but we will have revenue=profit idiots claiming warners making billions form it next as they didn't pay anyone to make the film, nor were anyone employeed in the cinemas to view it?

Was Tolkien a Maori a Kiwi.who cares about his stories? Is the All Blacks haka by Te Rauparaha written by John Key Jerry Brownlee and their bedpals from Warner Brothers?..New Zealand employment law can be changed..by the general populace voting National OUT!!!. My prediction is New Zealand films written about real New Zealand people in our own shores by our own writers, acted by an intensely staunch politicised MEAA Union Actors equity and directed by equally talented directors born in this country... Look at the facts of predominantly Maori stories in the box office "Boy" "Once were warriors"..in other words when WE kiwis Back ourselves, believe that we can MAKE WORLD CLASS MOVIES with ACTORS EQUITY and with a Labour Green Maori Asian Centre Left government. Believe it Join Actors Equity enrol to vote.As Playmarket says"change the world write a play, write a screenplay ..about things in our own country.We have enough per capita per town per whanau per hapu per iwi in our country drama,comedy,romantic comedy,thrillers in our own country , lets "farm this produce" like the Alll Blacks haka..United we stand Divided we fall...for all of you anti union cowards Te whiti o Rongomai Mahatma Gandhi Martin Luther King Jnr..Michael Joseph Savage. Jesus Joan of Arc..Mother Teresa Radha Soami Satsang Beas,3 world class Charitable Hospitals.."In love there is no politics in politics there is no love." We New Zealanders will be galvinised over a good cause 1981 Springbok Tour and it is my opinion that New Zealanders join Actors Equity write about kiwi stories etc fight drugs ,alcohol, depression ,self harm,,nicotine,gain self esteem through good lactovegetarian vegan food, do a 12 step programme, politicise their anger into non violence and share LOVE AROHANUI via the written words plays,screenplays, learn te reo maori,te reo gaelic..english ..we will all benefit RS
