Imperator Fish on Red Alert

Scott Yorke at Imperator Fish is not impressed with Clare Curran’s ill informed attack on David Farrar.

Mr Mallard said he was looking forward to getting heavily into blogging this year.

“We’ve all had some time off and are refreshed, and we’re ready to take the battle to David Farrar.

“We want to focus on the issues that are important to ordinary New Zealanders. Jobs, the economy, and David Farrar.”

“Red Alert is the perfect vehicle to enable Labour to engage with an important demographic: the internet savvy, and David Farrar.”

Ms Curran said she was not perturbed by what many in the media and blogosphere referred to as social media own-goals from Mallard and herself.

“I’m sure most people are mature enough to see through the nonsense pedalled by the Tory media and their stooges. David Farrar,” said Ms Curran.

“We are not interested in all that negativity. We want to start a dialogue with ordinary New Zealanders about the things that matter. And David Farrar.

“Starting next week we’re going to be posting about all the things that David Farrar is wrong about. Then when we’ve done that we want to start an open discussion on all the reasons why David Farrar is an enemy of democracy. We’re hoping that by the end of it we’ll have so destroyed David Farrar’s reputation that nobody will ever again take seriously anything said or written by David Farrar.”

Trevor Mallard said he expected big things from the Labour blogsite in 2012.

“We want Labour to hit the ground running in 2012, and to push National hard. Red Alert is going to be a potent weapon in that fight. That’s why we’re going to do our own thing and not worry about what others in the media and blogosphere have to say about us. David Farrar.”

    These pigeons re actually scared of Whaleoil and Kiwiblog tremendous.

    And take the battle to David Farrer…………………………..well if thats labours big plan through to 2014 , jesus wept.  These people are supposely adults, even a cowardly assailant like Mallard must grow up sometime.

    And calling DPF a tory just confirms how fucking stupid these two are.

    By the way where can I find some of this ‘tory media’ – I want to buy some

      Tory Media.  Well obviously it’s not TV as television in NZ is a one-party soviet state.  Maybe it’s a newpaper?

      Whos the stupid one ?

      Fish has done a made up parody, thats right made every word up.

      Im hoping you can say you just made it up too or you are more stupid than you  sound.

        And that changes my comment how?
        Everything I wrote there is true, labour are scared, Mallard is a cowardly assailant, that Curran is stupid is a given, and there is no ‘ tory media’

        The only inaccuracy I have written was mention ‘big plan’ and labour in the same sentence.  So if there is anything else there that is inaccurrate please let me know.

        P S there was no’ sound’ with the comment , I believe the word you were looking for would be imply

  • Mum

    That really made me lol. It’s so true. What’s the bigger issues when you can worry about David Farrar and cycle races.

  • Gazzaw

    Kosh must have slept in although s/he could just be at school doing some prep work for the coming year. That’s what good teachers do.

  • kevin

    They are a funny breed of cattle those labour folk…

    • Spiker

      That remark could be offensive to some cattle.

      • Angry Croc

  • Hakim of Phut

    Fantastic parody, has all the stooges thinking the martians have landed as in the HG Wells story in the 1920s

    No amount of blogging can make up for the severe lack of brain cells in both Curren and Mallard. Curren (sadly my local MP, with an ever decreasing majority) is everything that’s wrong with modern Labour – stacked full of trendy idealogical ‘progressives’ (whatever that means) who’ve never been anything less than middle class and who think they understand the poor. Mallard’s just a washed up old hack with severe short man’s syndrome and a Lycra fetish.
