Satirical humour?

Andrew Little says his little outburst on George Wood’s Facebook at nearly midnight was “satirical humour”, the Herald repeats the story this morning:

Former Labour president Andrew Little is not resiling from his “humorous, satirical” suggestion that Auckland councillor George Wood would like to end the Occupy protest in Aotea Square by gunning protesters down.

Mr Little, who is standing in New Plymouth this election, made the comments on Mr Wood’s Facebook page yesterday in response to a post from the former policeman and former Mayor of North Shore.

No. Not from a would be politician. Just apologise Andrew and say you shouldn’t have posted it. Note the comment was posted on Tuesday at 23:24 – Bad time of day when the brain is not thinking clearly.

I doubt Little was being satirical or humourous, everyone knows Labour politicians are humourless pricks.

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. 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.
