Whaleoil Awards – Worst Political Blog

So many to choose from…here are a few ideas

The Standard Lynn Prentice’s Hate Speech Blog: Quite possibly the worst, mainly for their sanctimonious accusations of any other blog being a sewer without for a moment having a look at their own comments and commenters.

Tumeke: Martyn Bradbuy‘s frothing hate speech rant, with occaisonal delusions from Tim Selwyn. The only decent blogger there, Phoebe Fletcher, stays away, probably out of shame.

Pundit: Tim Watkins “blog”…where it is mostly the musings of unemployed old journalists and assorted pinkos.

Red Alert: Pretty dire and a boring these days… Trevor’s great social media experiment rots like a soviet naval base.

Then there are the also ran…while not bad per se they simply don;t get any traffic to warrant speaking about….but hey..if there is a bad one out there you think needs adding to the list then by all means comment away.

Then there are the bunny boilers and p freaks who blog, with their sanctimonious enablers.

Plenty to choose from.

Citizen A – 11 November 2010

Citizen A – 15 October

What does the move to the left reflected in local body elections mean? Knock, knock. Who’s there? Not Paul Henry, what now for public broadcasting in NZ and who will rid me of this troublesome queen? Chris Carter sharpens the knives plus the Last Word.

Tune in to join Bomber and his revolving panel of bloggers and Auckland opinion shapers as they offer an up-to-date half hour review of the political media issues of the current week from a very Auckland perspective.

THIS WEEK: Tim Selwyn from Tumeke and Cameron Slater from Gotcha to talk about what the local body elections means, Paul Henry’s sacking and is there anything more angry than a spurned Chris Carter?

Spotting the irony in the irony spotting

hat tip Tim Selwyn

Poor old Labour, they just can’t their policy straight.

Here is what Trevor Mallard thinks about GST coming off healthy food.

In two weeks the Maori Party will vote for a very silly bill to take GST off “Healthy Food”

Just imagine trying to define that. And how much of each we are allowed each hour/day/week before GST kicks in. And the army of inspectors to check the food. And the increase in GST or other tax to cover the diff.

Now colour me stupid but I think Labour’s policy about removing GST from fruit and vege fits right in with his definition of healthy food.

Fraudu-Len

There seems to be trouble brewing in Len Brown’s power base, and it is spilling over into public.

Len Brown insulting maori

Len Brown insulting Maori?

The other night when I appeared with Bomber and Tim Selwyn on Citizen A is was given a bumper sticker by Bomber that is said to be from Len Brown’s campaign.

Len Brown's lame bumper sticker

Now note a couple of things about this tragic campaign sticker. Firstly there is no authorisation statement as required by law, so not only does Len Brown break his council’s own spending rules and refuse to disclose dinner guests, he also breaks electoral law governing advertising. The second thing is the sheer corny-ness of the whole thing. It’s brown, like his supporters (or not, see above), brown like him, standing for nothing, and incoherent like him too.

The last thing about such a silly device for marketing is that it is open to ridicule, like this:

FrauduLen - More appropriate campaign sticker

Expect a series of these, dear readers, maybe even some billboards.
