Quiet in the Cheap seats, Prosser’s apology not genuine

With all the furore over Richard Prosser’s “wogistan” comments, and his subsequent apology, I though it might be prudent to go read his book.

You see I don’t believe he is sincere in his apology. I think he only did it because Winston made him. An apology that is not sincere isn’t an apology at all.

Well, I’m glad I did read his book because on Page 166 we can see that his apology is meaningless: 



His apology is meaningless, not made with true remorse, in fact he thinks he shouldn’t ever have to apologise at all. Those who complain about his comments have “opinions [that] don’t count anyway”.

Just we are all straight on this…I’d prefer it if he never apologised. Then he would be true to himself, but instead he has now proven himself to be spineless and a weasel.

    Hes spot on about Minto and the press you have to agree.

  • If MMP is representative, what is so wrong with the idea that a strongly racist bigot gets into parliament? He’ll have a constituency as well. He’s not on his own with his ideas. In Greece, they have a neo-nazi party with 18 seats in a 300 seat parliament. Democracy – you can’t just pick and choose what you like – you need to accept there are people you are going to disagree with.

      Well said

    • Andy

      Yes, like the entire Green party

    • I have no problem with that, but what I do have a problem with is politicians who apologise when they don’t mean it. He should have said he wasn’t going to apologise, that he had nothing to apologise for and stuck to his beliefs no matter how bad other people reacted. Instead he caved because Winston told him to

        I don’t think there’s ever going to be any question that he wasn’t sincere. He had all the time in the world to compose his comments and reflect on what the reaction would be. If he’s smart enough to get into Parliament, he’s smart enough to know people would be asking for him to apologize over bullshit comments like this.

        The only thing missing from this picture is his framed Certificate In Public Speaking, from the prestigious Harawera Craig School Of Oration.

    Politician, Sincere.

    Pick one only.

    I loved Tom Scott’s cartoon in this mornings paper where Prosser is making an apology and the media hordes are thinking damn in their heads. The liberal press has that warm tingling feeling running down their legs, something to spew their politically correct bullshit at. Prosser may indeed be wrong but at least he has the guts to speak his views. Do you think for one minute the press in NZ would even dare to challenge anything but the talking points of lefty propaganda.

  • What you underlined reads like you could have written it, Whale.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Possibly but it doesn’t look like prosser wrote it.

    • Yes it could have been… but I wouldn’t be apologising… I see that you let that point sail right over your head.

      • One point at a time tends to not confuse the natives.

  • Dumrse

    How come the “house niggers” comment didn’t get an apology.

  • GregM

    I have two points,
    1: Why did he apologize, I bloody wouldn’t have.
    2: Until Hone apologizes, why the fuck should Prosser?

    I don’t agree with what he said, but he absolutely has the right to say it.
