Whale Week What Was

QC7kkThe blog started Saturday by having a look at a number of Christchurch people taking pictures up women’s skirts at malls.  And wouldn’t you know it?  A teacher was arrested as well.  Iain Lees-Galloway shows he is a slimy git by opening a Burger King and then refusing to take a bite, preferring to preach sensible food choices.  Cam then called for nominations for Worst Political Journalist, and Barry Soper and John Campbell appeared hot favourites.   Next we had a vote on Best Political Journalist, which Larry Williams took out with a massive 47% of the vote.  Graham McCready withdrew litigation against John Banks because it made no sense to anyone – as in – they couldn’t understand what it said.  Whale then claims a win on his Hekia Parata predictions and wonders why Key has let this train wreck happen.  We raise our eyebrows about Nelson looking for a scooter riding bottom pincher and then watch a video of what happens to a pig at the bottom of the sea over 7 days.  Next a post where Greens are fighting Greens over the Google solar plant.  On the one side: solar energy.  On the other? Turtles.   Charles Krauthammer explains why gun control alone isn’t the solution to mass shootings.   A MENSA spokesperson calls people with low IQs carrots and the BBC feels they have to apologise.  There is a property for sale next to Kim Dotcom‘s place.  Cam suggests the GCSB or the US should have bought it to set up spying operations.   WOBH is calling for The Whale Army to send in their holiday snaps, in a new feature called Snapped!  Cam takes a brief look at who will enter parliament if Tim Groser leaves for the WTO.  To close the day, a WhaleTech post looks at a the cull-de-sac that’s the QII roll-up keyboard.

He could defend the Catholic Church

Paul Daniels has just passed the test in order to qualify as a spokesman for the Catholic Church:

Paul Daniels, the magician, has defended a blog in which he questioned whether sex abuse victims of Jimmy Savile are telling the truth as an “honest” account of life in the 1970s.

Daniels, 74, was accused of “belittling” the victims after he said in a blog post that he has been “wondering if all of [Savile’s] accusers are for real”.

He said on his blog that he could not be sure that all his groupies were over 16 because life in the 1970s was a “blur”.

He said he does remember once kissing a “slightly tiddly” schoolgirl he gave a lift too before realising she was underage.

The entertainer said it was difficult to tell the age of his “groupies” in the 1970s because they wore “super-short mini skirts” and “teetering high heels”.

He yesterday defended his comments by posting messages from fans who praised him for an “accurate and honest account” of showbusiness in the 1970s.

I’d say he will be getting a call fromt eh Pope any day soon.
