Go on, have a laugh

NZ on Screen have placed a nice range of home grown comedy on-line for us all to go all watery-eyed about.  Some of it is cutting political satire (especially back then) the likes of which we haven’t seen since the ’90s.  Somehow lampooning our politicians on TV is no longer the done thing.   And more is the pity.

Unfortunately NZ on Screen doesn’t allow embedding videos, so for a taste of ’70 political satire, check this out.  You’ll be treated to a wholesome sex education lesson, just in case you need a refresher.  (Hint:  Make sure the chair has cooled down)

Or just fill your boots.

fffjjyy

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.

More good news

The Bali Bombers were executed last night by firing squad. They should have fed the bodies to the pigs.

Rot in Hell assholes.

Traitor

Bolger to head Govt’s ‘KiwiRail’ service (+video)Former Prime Minister Jim Bolger will head KiwiRail, the country’s renationalised rail network.
The Government took ownership of the rail and ferry assets at midnight.
Jim Bolger was prime minister of the National Government…
[NZ Politics]

I’m with Cactus on this. Jim Bolger should have his party membership cancelled, all photos of his potato head emoved from all party offices and all mention of him expunged from the record. The man is a dirty filthy socialist hugger and should be avoided.

If ever there was a name to be on the top of the list for directors to be sacked after the election then right after Mike Williams would go Jim Bolgers name.

I remember Jim Bolger once sitting in the gold covered armchair in front of the piano in Mum & Dad’s lounge. He had a crystal glass of Scotch in his hand and was quietly telling those who cared to to listen how he thought Jim McLay was agreat guy but unfortunately not really destined to remain leader of the National Party. Two weeks later Jim Bolger was the leader.

I know also how Jim Bolger caved to Winston’s blackmail over who should be given a knighthood, all for the sake of keeping himself esconced in Permier House. He shouldhave called the bastards bluff not kowtowed by him.

Jim Bolger your time is up.

Is Bolger a Labour toady?

Jim Bolger is increasingly looking like a toady of the Labour Party. After destroying them in NZ’s biggest landslide he then set about after being dumped by Jenny Shipley in cosying up to Labour. He has sucked off the Labour tit as a board representative of NZ Post and Kiwibank.

I am increasingly sceptical of where his loyalties lie.

He is now being touted as the Chairman for Michael Cullen’s Trainset. As a former National party leader I would have thought he would have known better than to suck up to Cullen for this cushy little number.

It is thought that because the crusty old bastard is an old party leader that criticism would be blunted. I think that thinking is flawed. National should attack and attack hard, kicking Bolger at the same time as Labour. The man has clearly lost his integrity.
