Farrar is back in the saddle, tickles up Catton in open letter

Arts, Travel & Lifestyle blogger David Farrar is back from his hectic travel schedule to sledge Eleanor Catton for her silly comments made to a bunch of Indian luvvies.

Fortunately when not travelling or watching plays because someone has given him a free ticket our pinko mate has moments of political brilliance, and today is one of those days.

He tells Catton to put her money where her mouth is.

Also I noted last year you said you would be happy to taxed at 40% to help young Kiwis. You may be unaware of this, but you can voluntarily pay more tax than you are obliged to. Just calculate the extra 7% on your income and send it to The Treasury, 1 The Terrace, Wellington and I am sure they will send you a receipt.

Good onya Pinko, great to have you back.

It still won’t get you back in the VRWC.

The bottom line is Eleanor Catton has taken subsidies, grants, assistance and an award from this country and now she chucks dirt on it. Perhaps with her massive book sales and resulting increase in royalties she might like to pay it back, otherwise she will just be another arts bludger luvvie on the lash courtesy of the taxpayers.

Meanwhile all the luvvies ?and arts bludgers are up in arms, it must be just hours away from a leftwing boycott of Sean Plunket’s radio show…I wonder what his missus will have to say about that if it happens. She can hardly complain when she is in?favour of bans against my advertisers.
