Political Necrophilia

(pə-lĭt’ĭ-kəl nĕk’rə-fĭl’ē-ə) also nec·rophi·lism (nĭ-krōf’ə-lĭz’əm, nĕ-)


  1. Obsessive fascination with political death and political corpses.


  1. Of, relating to, or dealing with the structure or affairs of government, politics, or the state and politicians or issues that are dead to the public.
  2. Relating to, involving, or characteristic of politics or politicians: “Calling on the auditor-general to investigate details of an MP who is dead politically “ .

Also known as “cuddling the corpse“.

Labour and especially Pete Hodgson, ironic as he is almost a political corpse himself,  just can’t seem to get it through their heads that the Pansy Wong issue is over. She has resigned, she has gone from parliament and the stench of her corpse is now stinking up them and not National. They did the same with Richard Worth and in fact keep bringing him up.

National has learned that when political meat goes off it is best to chuck it out the back-door. Labour however just seem to want to pick the corpse up and take it home. There comes a point though when cuddling the corpse becomes political necrophilia and you end up stinking of the dead yourself. That’s when corpse rooters usually get sprung, when the stench of the decomposing body starts to stink up their joint and their clothes and the stench pervades their own body.

They should beware of Political Necrophilia.

    Wonder if John told her that if she stayed she would be sitting in the other rear corner of the House (Chris Carter sits in the ‘opposition’ rear corner).

  • jamegumb

    Yeah Pete – this is dead boring.

  • adolffiinkensein

    It is an infectious condition caused by some of the dead pricks who linger for years inside that political sargoffagus known as the Labour Party.

  • It’d be much preferable if Wong were charged with fraud, convicted, jailed and lost her lifetime perks. I mean let’s face it… she’s just not worthy

    but of course Lockjaw Smirk and Smile and Wave couldn’t grow a pair between them to allow that to happen cos damn straight Pansy knows where the bodies are buried…most probablly in Shipley and English’s backyard !!!

    so yeah, that stench isn’t coming from Hodgson. It’s coming from the festering corpses piled high under the rotten floorboards of the morally decaying National party HQ

      so yeah, that stench isn’t com­ing from Hodg­son. It’s com­ing from the fes­ter­ing corpses piled high under the rot­ten floor­boards of the morally decay­ing National party HQ

      Really? No rotting corpses under Liarbore, no sirree, eh pollywog. Not a TPF in sight with Liarbore, is there, pollywog.

      Wong is not a TPF pollywog, however much Liarbore would like her to be, it ain’t the case.

      So yeah, the stink is coming from Hodgson, actually. Honestly, how do you guys live with yourselves? That’s what I don’t understand. Oh that’s right. It’s for the cause, isn’t it. That makes everything OK, doesn’t it. Even this. Silly me.

  • Oh i’m sure theres plenty of skeletons in the hollowed out recesses of Labour party HQ too reid, which is why i don’t neccessarily bat for team red and how i can live with myself quite comfortably

    My cause transcends political affiliations and ideology

    so what’s a TPF ?…. I googled it and the only thing close to Pansy i could find was a Terrestrial Planet Finder, cos she’ll need another one to conduct business from if the fraud squad decide to prosecute and a Transaction Processing Facility, which is basically what she used her office for

    • Taito Philip Field – a labour politician and minister who was convicted for corruption, perverting the course of justice and numerous other crimes.

      Convicted…in a court…guilty…appeal rejected…Labour MP

      • Taito Phillip Field subsequently sentenced to 6yrs jail, stripped of all perks and disgraced.

        He did the crime, he does the time…ZERO FUCKING TOLERANCE !!!

        Something that should happen to Pansy and Sammy Wong as well as, looking by all accounts, former PM Shipley

        your point being ???

        • reid

          Apparently pollywog phil goff thru his rental has done exactly the same thing as Liarbore is accusing Pansy of: using taxpayer money to manage or otherwise benefit a personal or private non-govt asset.

          Oh dear,


          That’s right.

          Isn’t that sad, pollywog, that even dear ole phil would stoop to such depths. Why I wholeheartedly encourage your call for stiff penalties. In fact for something like what Phil’s done being a senior experienced parliamentarian leader and all what in your opinion should the penalty be?
