Lord Burns and Verisimilitude

Lord Burns has descended again from his country seat for the rather tiresome task of convincing the Lumpenprolitariat they are blessed by having such a fine MP representing them, and they should tug their forelocks and vote for him on November 26th.

In aid of this tiresome task Lord Burns has started manipulating the hoi polloi in the media to help his ends. Obviously Lord Burns is beyond reproach and this blog would never suggest he is lying in his latest missive to the masses, as it is surely beneath Lord Burns to lie. Nor would it suggest he has pulled something out of his posterior, as he is well known not to be either self serving or one of the gaggle so there is not much room in his posterior to begin with.

Lord Burns, however, does need someone to question the degree of verisimilitude of this statement:

Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee must front up and confirm the Government’s plans to install commissioners in the Christchurch City Council and sell its assets, says Christchurch Central MP Brendon Burns.

Unfortunately for Lord Burns sources inside the socialist republic as well as the beltway say there is absolutely no chitter chatter about commissioners replacing the council. The reason for this is Gerry Brownlee has no intention of doing an ounce more work than is necessary, and installing commissioners would require a huge amount of extra effort for a man unused to exertion to begin with. With all the exertion Big Gerry has had to undertake in the last year he is not contemplating exerting himself any further as he has been neglecting important things like eating and the restoration of Christchurch’s pie shops to their pre earthquake level.

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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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