Why the National Party is taking on Wicked Campers over its offensive designs

first_imgStuff co.nz 30 March 2016Family First Comment: “University of Otago political scientist Bryce Edwards says the outcry over Wicked Campers is unique, in that it has united Kiwis with very different political beliefs. Conservatives are upset about the “lewd and rather non-family-friendly messages out there in the community”, while liberals are concerned by the misogynistic and sexist jokes on the Wicked vehicles. “That is quite interesting – normally you don’t have the likes of Family First in sync with feminists and other liberal activists.” Edwards says National’s campaign against Wicked could help to boost the party’s modern image, showing it standing up against “old-fashioned” attitudes and “beyond the pale” humour.”Or…. maybe we’re just giving the politicians some backbone!!Wicked Campers isn’t short of enemies at the moment, but their most powerful opponent is undoubtedly the Government.The campervan rental company’s offensive paint jobs have caught the eye of National MPs and ministers, who are working together to put an end to the explicit images and slogans.The party’s politicians have taken to the airwaves to decry Wicked, while exploring how local council bylaws, the chief censor’s office and even credit card guidelines could be used to stop the company from offending Kiwis.So what’s in it for National, and why have they taken such a strong stance?University of Otago political scientist Bryce Edwards says the outcry over Wicked Campers is unique, in that it has united Kiwis with very different political beliefs.READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/78369900/why-the-national-party-is-taking-on-wicked-campers-over-its-offensive-designslast_img read more

Spurs ‘to lose compensation cash if Poch waits until May to take Toon job ‘

first_imgBruce recently expressed fears that he has only weeks left as Toon boss amid the takeover.The 59-year-old has reportedly been left in the dark by Ashley over what is happening, with the only information passed on that he will be the first to know if and when something happens.Bruce was appointed by Ashley at the start of the season but his arrival was seen as an underwhelming choice to replace Rafa Benitez.most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by Celtic TOTTENHAM will not get any compensation if Newcastle appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss next month, according to reports. Spurs chief Daniel Levy agreed to keep paying the Argentine’s £8.5million salary until he found a new job after he was axed in November.2 Tottenham will reportedly not get any compensation if Newcastle appoint Mauricio Pochettino as new their boss next monthAccording to the Evening Standard, Spurs are only due a cash sum in compensation if Pochettino takes a new job within six months of his sacking – a date which runs out on May 19.With football on standby due to the coronavirus crisis, the former Spurs boss could potentially take over at St James’ Park after the cut-off date, but still lead the Magpies for the remainder of the Premier League season – including a home match against Spurs.The Toon will have the wealthiest owners in world football once their £300million takeover bid is completed.Since news of the Saudi backers emerged, several managers have been linked with replacing Steve Bruce including Poch, Max Allegri and former Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez.But the new owners are likely to give Bruce until the end of the season to prove he can deliver.With Covid-19 bringing world football to a shuddering halt it seems Tottenham would likely welcome Poch taking a new job to get him off their wage bill.Spurs approached their former manager last week about a potential cut to his gardening leave salary amid the coronavirus pandemic.Despite leading Tottenham to last season’s Champions League final, Poch was dismissed after four-and-a-half years and replaced by Jose Mourinho.He was axed so suddenly that he was forced to leave a note to say goodbye to his players, but a return to the Premier League still appears to be top of his agenda,Spurs are also in talks with Mourinho and his playing squad about a ten per cent drop in wages as the club looks to offset some of the inevitable losses caused by the virus.Mike Ashley is on the verge of selling the Magpies for a knockdown £300million to a Saudi group led by Amanda Staveley.Official paperwork shows the deal is nearing completing with a Saudi Arabia-backed consortium involving Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.Yasir Al-Rumayyan, the head of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, will become the new chairman.The Saudi supremos will own 80 per cent of the club – with Staveley and the Reuben brothers evenly splitting the remaining 20 per cent.Ashley is set to pocket £17million even if the £300million takeover falls through with the Middle East consortium paying that figure as a deposit. The former centre-back has guided the Magpies to 13th in the table and clear of the drop zone but ex-Toon boss Sam Allardyce recently expressed concerns that Bruce could be axed under the new owners.When the takeover is complete, Newcastle will be will have an eye-watering amount of cash to entice football’s world stars to St James’ Park, including PSG superstar Edinson Cavani.However, Hatice Cenzig, fiancee of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi,who was murdered in the country’s embassy in Istanbul, warned the new Magpies takeover would ‘greatly stain’ the Premier League’s image and Britain’s reputation.Her comments came a day after Amnesty International expressed concerns over the Gulf state’s human rights record.England defender Danny Rose delivers hundreds of Domino’s pizzas to NHS staff days after £19k donation to aid coronavirus fightlast_img read more

Salinas: “The signing of Braithwaite seems like a disaster”

first_imgThe exblaugrana also referred to the controversial case of the company that FC Barcelona would have hired to damage the image of players through social networks. “I do not understand the management they have done. We are talking about a company like Barcelona, ​​which invoices one billion euros, they are not companies that ultimately belong to the partners. If I have 300 million followers on social networks, why I have to pay a company that nobody knows and has four followers to make me a management of what? I don’t understand that management “he pointed out. “If I have 300 million followers and also an executive group within the club, a multinational in which I manage social networks and everything that is the digital issue, with experts in that subject, why do I have to hire?”, sentenced Salinas, who gives “the feeling” that he is “giving away the money” and who doubts who that company is. “They seem out of place and very rare,” he said. Julio Salinas participated next Friday with former handball player Eli Pinedo, former volleyball player Rafa Pascual and former water polo player Pedro García Aguado in the presentation of the challenge ‘My First Marathon’ of Banco Santander, which will take the four to run this Sunday on Marathon of Seville. The former FC Barcelona player Julio Salinas was very critical of the signing by the Catalan club Martin Braithwaite and thought he thought “a disaster and out of place”, especially because he can’t play in the Champions League and because he could have looked more at the subsidiary. “The Braithwaite thing is a disaster, a very bad choice. First because he cannot play the ‘Champions’, with which I see it absurd to pay 18 million, a price almost ‘crack’, because in the end there are 18 million plus a signing of four and a half years to the player, “said Julio Salinas in an act in Seville at Santander Bank. The Basque also believes that the signing of the Danish removes “the possibility of next year a good signing” as could be Lautaro Martínez and Neymar “or both”. “You have let Abel Ruiz or Carlos Pérez escape, and many players for less price, in the end why do you want a subsidiary. For a player who is going to play 13 League games, because the Classic will surely not play it, it seems to me out of place, “he warned.last_img read more
