RIP Democracy

In no uncertain terms shall today go down as anything other than the death of democracy in New Zealand. Personally this is one of the most depressing days ever.

Let me make this clear and loud (because there are some really fucking dumb people out there justifying these actions).

Removing the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED people’s representatives, replacing them with one’s own cronies, with no set date for the return to elections, makes this Government’s actions no different from that of the Fiji Coup leaders.

Commodore Rodney Hydemarama and Nick Smith have fucked the people of Canterbury, they have treated democracy with complete and utter contempt, and thus have fucked the people of NZ.

All the bleating and tears from the right during the previous Labour government pale into minuscule insignificance compared to these actions.

But these aren’t the only people’s representatives they’ve fucked. The Polytechnic’s have had this same treatment.

So there you go NZ, the govt you deserve (you have obviously all been very naughty people to deserve this shit).

Are you taking the piss?

taking-the-piss

With TV3 dedicating 4 live journalists and 15mins, while TVOne more live ‘on the spot’ journos and 18mins to the Backon Flu Hysteria, is there any wonder with the above headline.

Stuff and NZ Herald also hang your head low, your reporting has been shit.

Meanwhile the 2 Scottish (see it’s global now) people with Porker flu have or are recovering, they had it mild. National Radio in it’s 8min round up of the Pandemic (no it’s not yet) reported poor old Debbie from the North Island somewhere isn’t going to her friends wedding in a part of Mexico 2000km away from the outbreak, poor Debbie, you’ll be pleased to hear she’s still off to the US for a holiday.

FFS Media stop taking the piss and scaring the people, you are collectively an embarrassment.

TVNZ Goodbye

“Is that a moustache on his head”?

Today is the day that I finally part ways with TVNZ, and more specifically Breakfast. Paul Henry apart from being the most arrogant self opinionated cunt on television in the world (makes the FOX tv guys look like liberals), today they stooped so low to have that zelot Wishart on with his bullshit book ‘Air Con’.

They wouldn’t have a Holocaust denier on the show but they have this fuck with and his climate change denial line. Ian Wishart is a national disgrace.

Bye Bye TVNZ, can’t even say it’s been nice. P Henry fuck off this planet please, the world needs a little respect not your cunty arrogant vile shite day after day. Why the fuck didn’t Josh Cronfeld reach through the lens of the camera and twat you one, the world wanted it.

Breaking News: You will not die from Bacon Flu, unless…

You are stupid enough to follow the news on TV and believe any of the shit they tell you.

13 people died on our “Killing Field” Roads (how fucking insulting is that to the Vietnamese people) this weekend, 0 died of bacon or porker flu. 13 died from smoking today, tomorrow and the next day…

Get some bloody perspective and don’t believe the hype. Yes be wary, but that snivel you have isn’t the beginning of the end, it’s a fucking cold.

One thing health officials can confirm, is that there will be saturation TV coverage of someone dying in Mexico – FFS how many starving kids die of Malaria everyday, that’s fucking curable and highly contagious.

Here we bloody well go again, might get some videos I’ve been meaning to catch up on for a while, OneNews and 3News are off the menu for a while, mmmmm bacon butties though, YUM,

(Un)Super Dorkland

No Maori direct representation – OMGFG. But I guess that’s what happens when the Hall Monitor ACT (Association of Cunts and Tyrants) Local Govt Minister gets involved. The largest Polynesian City in the world will have a white middle aged male council – mark my words.

Could I possibly ask WTF is the point of a Royal Commission, thousands of submissions and the Govt makes it’s own daft policy on this?

Good luck Auckland you are going to fucking well need it.

Memo to Auckland, don’t take us down with you please, we are actually all right down here.

Angernui – the town with no h(ope).

Following on from my simple request to the Mayor of Whanganui to reconsider his council’s decision to correct the spelling of the cities name how does a Mayor respond?

Sir

thank you for you time in writing, but our council has made….

Yours …

Don’t be so bloody hopeful, this is the entire text of the response from the Mayor.

You’re an idiot. Go lecture someone else with your stupidity.

Nothing else. No yours….

Very classy Michel aws, not bad for a Mayor that can’t spell it’s name correctly, or is this what you could expect from a very angry confused life long moaning politician.

So sorry Whanganui, you good people deserve so much more.

it is Whanganui – no debate.

Open letter to Mic( )ael Laws and more or less the whole city of Whanganui.

Sir,

some time ago when I was a young ideological student in the late 1980’s I watched with absolute horror at the country and it’s frenzy to keep the Homosexual Law Reform Bill from passing. So fervent was the opposition, that nearly 80% of the country was opposed to the bill, hundreds of thousands of people signed the petition – so impassioned was the opposition they even managed to get Mickey Mouse to sign the petition. This was a moral campaign.

Skip a couple of years watching a Spike Lee movie. The most memorable moment in the movie to me was when the father was teaching the son that the most important thing in the world is respect. Respect for fellow human beings leads to greater understanding and empathy. Despite all of the racial mayhem going on around them, the father was taking the time to teach the child this most wonderful and basic of human traits – respect.

Fast forward to Wanganui 2009. Same impassioned people, same fervent opposition, to yet another seemingly non issue. I care not one bit for your opposition to the name of the city being returned to it’s correct spelling. I care that the somewhat ‘majority’ of the people have been conned into thinking that disrespecting the local indigenous people is a good state to be in.

It is very simple, the name of the River and the city includes the H, without it, it is meaningless, further it is disrespectful. It says, we know this is how it should be spelt, but we don’t care, your language and mana whenua mean nothing to us. Just as Micael Laws without the H is meaningless, so is Whanganui.

I always mistook you for someone with a level of reason and intelligence, however seemingly backing oneself into a corner with no way out often results in intrenched opinions at the detriment of rational debate. The respect that I once held for you would easily be found again, if you showed the local IWI that very same respect and gave them their name back. Hundred year old injustices don’t need to be perpetuated in New Zealand 2009. Just as our elected officials took the less popular approach and bought Homosexuality into the public realm with dignity, as should the elected officials in the case of the correct spelling of the city Whanganui

Thank you very much for your time sir.
