While many credit Bowie with pioneering the modern mullet, he loses points because he was pretending to be an alien when he did it.

First against the wall – drivers who back into car parks

I had the severe mis-fortune of having to go get some supplies for the camping trip. It was hot, sticky, humid and the worst animal of all was out in abundance at Botany.

Traffic and fool pedestrians who think that in a car vs. human accident they will win, were everywhere. But the single worst driving menaace are f*ckwit drivers who think that it is acceptable to back into car parks.

When I am dictator for life, the first people against the wall will be drivers who back into car parks.

These wankers sit blocking up the traffic waiting for a car park then someone BEHIND them drives off, they then slam their car into reverse and attempt to take the car park. In the laws of car park driving, they have forfeited that spot…they drove PAST it. Just because they like to park by backing into car parks doesn’t give then a right to take the car park.

The backing skills of “back parkers” also leaves a lot to be desired, most using the braille method of distance control.

They need to be shot.

The only thing worse than “back parkers” is caravan, trailer and boat towers travelling during peak holiday season. That is another post, though I think you all know what the punishment should be for them…yep…same as that for “back parkers”.

Maybe I will have a taser warning system in place for first offenders, second offenders get a more permanent solution for their inconsiderate behaviour.

Sunday Silliness

I was reading through several commentators articles about the political year and was thinking they had it about right until they all made silly mistakes.

First up Matt McCarten – he runs through various politicians and his opinions of them and then finishes up with complete tosh about Len Brown and the “victory” of the left wing in Auckland.

Instead, Brown united the left, raised as much money as the other side and gained a huge majority for his team. Even more impressively, he destroyed the right-wing C&R machine. Since he’s been mayor, he hasn’t put a foot wrong. He’s spread around the jobs to include his opponents, but made sure his supporters are in the key posts.

Uhmmm…Matt is dead wrong. There was only one left wing candidate so no need for uniting, there isn’t a huge majority and that will become apparent next year. He didn’t destroy C&R, and if he did then he also destroyed City Vision/Labour. Since being mayor he has put a great wrong. His secret trust revealed his utter hypocrisy on transpacrency and honesty, he appointed his campaign pals and former toadies into crony positions, his 100 things in 100 days has produced about 5 things so far and we are so far 56 days into the 100 days, and jacked up rates by more than 3 times what he promised.

Then we have Mrs Colin Carruthers QC, who must have got her husband to write all but the last paragraph, and that shows her utter ineptitude at political musings.

Act needs a hard taskmaster, a leader who when he barks “jump” has his MPs squeal “how high?” as they work like navvies, punching above their weight.

And with Winston Peters looking like returning, this Act leader must be someone who’s already proved to be more than a match for Peters in the House.

It’s a desperate situation, and calls for a comeback.

So, Richard Prebble – leave a Brian Lochore note on the kitchen table: “Gone to Wellington. Saving Act tomorrow.”

Anyone who thinks that Richard Prebble is the answer to anything is bat-shit crazy.

The lsat lot to look at are the fools from the Fairfax political team. The fact that it includes pinko Vernon Small shows up in the trite rubbish that masquerades as commentary.

Apart from rating Simon Power about 20 places above his true station in life, I think it is funny that they rate David parker, essentially an invisible man in labour’s caucus above even Simon Power. You know they are vacuous when they write this about Phil Goff:

The Labour leader can be satisfied with his performance in 2010. The party didn’t go up in the polls, but at least it didn’t see its support nosedive either. Has given Annette King, David Parker and David Cunliffe their heads as they revamp party policy, and dealt decisively with the disloyal Chris Carter. But at the same time, he has failed to land a serious punch on John Key and will need to do more to fire next year.

Satisfied? Only a complete twat could be satisfied with Phil Goff’s performance. Oh wait…Vernon Small is a Fairfax political journalist.
