Does David Fisher understand contrition? Sincerity? Perhaps Irony?


Readers may recall a few days ago when New Zealand Herald’s poster boy David Fisher tweeted an “apology”.   You know, the way you tweet breaking up, or that you lost your car keys.  Tweets are really moments for those important parts in your life, aren’t they?

No matter.  I never believed the sincerity of it, especially as he was sat on by his pay masters to stop being such an idiot, lest they have to invoke the “You may not do anything that brings your employer into disrepute” clause in his employment contract.  

So in light of his forced tweet, the absence of an email, a phone call, or a quick visit to say sorry, nobody is fooled that the apology was genuine.

We all know the caliber of the man, shrugged, and moved on.

However, he’s not stopped tweeting (now that would really have been wise), and the irony of this clanger was just too hard to let slide unnoticed.


It really does, once more, require Lily singing “f*** you”.

You really can’t make this shit up.  I don’t have to!

    What’s with Fisher having a crack at the Hariwira mafia in todays fish wrapper? He better have his flight booked & passport ready as big bad Hone & the bro’s will be around to sort him out. They are going to give him the bash.

    His didactic apology to you was Claytons. Now he approaches new heights in irony.

    He is a cocksmoker of the highest order!

    A quick visit to say sorry? – Are you feeling alright?
