I imagine David Cunliffe is planning one of these

Only in socialist nirvana’s would this be possible….a Ministry of Supreme Happiness.

It is highly likely that Greg Presland is working away feverishly on plans for David Cunliffe to launch a similar initiative.

Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela’s president, creates Vice Ministry of Supreme Social Happiness, despite chronic shortages of basic goods like toilet paper.

A new Vice Ministry of Supreme Social Happiness has been created by Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan president, in an attempt to coordinate all the “mission” programmes created by Hugo Chavez to alleviate poverty.

“I have decided to create this Vice ministry and I have given it this name to honour Chávez and Bolívar,” Mr Maduro announced on Thursday in a televised speech made from the presidential palace. He said that the Vice ministry aimed to take care of the most “sublime, vulnerable and delicate, to those who are most loved by anyone who calls themselves a revolutionary, a Christian and Chavista.”

Oil-rich Venezuela is chronically short of basic goods and medical supplies. Annual inflation is running officially at near 50 per cent and the US dollar now fetches more than seven times the official rate on the black market.   

The creation of the ministry sparked widespread mirth and mocking in the streets and on social media.

In downtown Caracas, fruit vendor Victor Rey said he is now waiting for Maduro to create a vice ministry of beer.

“That would make me, and all the drunks, happy,” he said.

A TV journalist whose show was recently forced off the air after he refused to censor political opponents of the ruling socialists, Leopoldo Castillo, called Mr Maduro’s announcement an international embarrassment.

Housewife Liliana Alfonzo, 31, said that instead of a Supreme Happiness agency she would prefer being able to get milk and toilet paper, which disappear off store shelves minutes after arriving at stores.

“It’s a Calvary getting the ingredients for any meal,” she said.

Mr Maduro blames the shortages on speculation and hoarding, but merchants say they would go broke if they adhered to government price controls.

    You have to feel sorry for these socialist imbeciles, it’s just all beyond them. Some advice, the quickest way for everyone to have supreme social happiness would be to for you and your mates to curl up and die.

    Perhaps the Green lunatics would be amenable to drilling if they were promised that the revenue would be channelled into drop out centres where cannabis, hookers and woolly jumpers were free…..

    Noble sentiments.

    Oh Cameron you are so predictable.

    How is the exclusive post that will end the Len Brown mayoralty coming along??

    • Notrotsky

      I didn’t know it was possible to type and fellate David cunliffe at the same time, well done Greg!

      Jeez Gweg, you really are pathetic! Rather than continually trying to shoot the messenger, try reading the fucken message!
      The point being mad above is that this is what happens in the socialist utopias that ignorant cunts like you try and promote through your lies and spin. Crawl back under yer rock!

      keep calling the blog-stats are enjoying your custom

    • Death by a thousand cuts Greg.

      Just look at all the questions that Cam has posed in recent days, then look at Rule #8 of Whaleoil’s Rules of Politics:

      8. Never ask a question if you don’t already know the answer

      Personally, I would favour so kind of revelation tomorrow, the day that Mr Brown gets sworn in as mayor at a public ceremony that he cannot shy away from. I’ll be off to the supermarket later to stock up on beer and popcorn.

    All that Oil and no one can have a shit, yep that’s what the Greens want down here in NZ, smelly Greenies.

  • Statehousekid

    Len Brown is pushing for a Ministry to keep every private.

  • MrAuz1989

    Given the shortage of toilet paper, perhaps a Ministry of Silly Walks would have been a better idea.

  • Patrick

    Cunliffe’s version of a Ministry of Supreme Happiness is a house in Herne Bay where every wall is covered in a full length mirror for his viewing pleasure.
    He would be like a dog with two dicks wandering about admiring himself from every angle.

    The Scorpion and the Frog

    A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
    scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
    frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion
    says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”

    The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
    the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
    paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
    but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”

    Replies the scorpion: “Its my nature…”
