DS Danyl Strype Public Seen by 22

What policy should the Pirates have on preventing future outbreaks of Marmageddon? Should we propose a properly-funded Minstry of Marmite, or will that offend potential supporters who oppose Big Government?


Craig Magee Wed 5 Feb 2014 5:20AM

We should have two jars added to the recommended emergency kit list and leave it at that.


Bruce Kingsbury Wed 5 Feb 2014 7:09AM

Sue votes for a Ministry of Marmite. We can use the extra funding that will be freed up when we downsize the GCSB.

Do we have a policy on downsizing the GCSB? I sure hope so, we really have far more intelligence agencies and spying capacity than a country the size of New Zealand should be able to justify.

Good point on the GCSB Bruce. Would you like to open a thread on that too in the Policy Group?


Andrew Reitemeyer Wed 5 Feb 2014 11:25PM

The banning of Vegemite should solve the problem; marmite would be the universal spread.

Careful, someone might not realize this is satire!

Marmite on toast must have hot sauce on it. Closed Tue 11 Feb 2014 7:09PM

The outcome is that proposals that go wildly outside of our core policy are not going to get adopted unless they merit it. So @davidpeterson frequent argument on other threads is a strawman.

When marmite has been spread on toast, it must have a teaspoon or more of Jalapeño sauce or Habernero sauce on top.

The proposal is absurd.

I don't eat toast.

Why are you wasting our time?

Obliging people to use a certain product or products in combination with Marmite violates our principles, such matters should be a personal choice :)
