What next? The PM apologising for blog comments?

In what can only be described as utterly cringe-worthy our High Commissioner to India has gone crawling and apologised to the Indian Government about comments made by Paul Henry.

This is utterly pathetic as is the response now of John Key that we mustn’t upset the Indians.

Look the simple facts are this, a entertainer, I refuse to call him a journalist, made comments on a Breakfast magazine show, in jest. They are no more racist than any number of comedians have made before, or indeed other commenters have made about foreign born New Zealanders. Now we have an official government apology for causing upset.

This is utterly ridiculous, what next? The Prime Minister apologising for comments made on blogs that are deemed to be offensive to someone anywhwere, just so long as they take umbrage.

Jesus H. Christ! New Zealand has become sick inducing in its totally politically correct sycophancy to group think and speak.

We need free thinkers to break the shackles of the humourless and the control-freaks.

The response of our High Commissioner to India’s precious whining should have been like this;

“It is not our government’s position to comment or control our media or individuals who seek to entertain. We are a democracy that welcomes free speech and we would no more seek to control individual expressions of opinion than the Indian Government does on the bazillion TV , Radio stations or newspapers that India has.”

In other words “F*ck Off”

John key utterly disappoints me with his gutless crawling on this issue, but no more than the hypocritical wailings of the pinko media.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
