The People of NZ have spoken but didn't seem to have heard a word



NZers went to the polls and they have spoken! They said 'We'll keep the vacant aspiration multi-millionaire money trader over the automatron Phil Goff 1980's android thank you very much, and for reasons that defy political gravity, we'd also like to resurrect Winston Peters and his cavalcade of deformed personalities masquerading as a party list."

The Political result in the end was as one sided as the All Blacks facing a kindergarten first 15 made up of children in the late stages of cancer. John Key will take his scrape through one seat majority as a mandate to unleash the 4 horsemen of the Treasury and implement right wing economic policy as social policy where as Labour seem to have bent space and time itself by vanishing from this dimension altogether.

Sadly John fucking Banks is back and he has been tipped as Minister for Corrections? Just what our prison system needs, a law and order sadist.

I feel like I've woken up at a Ku Klux Clan rally wearing a Lady GaGa t-shirt.

If John Banks gets corrections he'll appoint Garth McVicars to run the prison chain gang and book burning programs.

What was more appalling than this homophobic dinosaur gerrymandering Epsom and returning to Parliament was the fact that John Banks revealed during the election that in his entire life, he had only ever watched 4 movies.

That's like only ever eating one type of vegetable, or sticking to just vaginal sex. How does one move through a multi-media age in an affluent Western Culture by the age of 60 having only watched 4 movies? The urban people of Epsom must be spluttering into their Starbucks.

The real question from the election however is which Political Circus Freak from NZ First will meltdown before Christmas?

The entertainment value of having Winston back will be eclipsed by the possible meltdowns of anyone one of the collection of political misfits he's brought in with him.

There's Andrew Williams, the singing weather man Brendan Horan, Andrew Williams, the South Island independence militia man, Andrew Williams, a faceless time server and Andrew Williams.

The NZ First caucus sounds like it will have all the credibility of a panel of lepers judging a beauty competition.

MEANWHILE the entire neo liberal Washington consensus economic hegemonic structure teetered on the brink of an event horizon black hole of financial debt, while we rearranged the deck chairs on the HMRNZ Titanic.

According to National and Labour, NZ would be back in surplus by 2014, GDP would climb, unemployment would dip, bread and honey would rain from the sky and sick pets would be healed.

However, Germany couldn't sell all it's debt for the first time, Chinese manufacturing output plummeted and the Italians had to pay 6.5% yield's on their 6 month loans. That's twice the rate they paid last month and in January they need to sell a further $30 billion Euros in bonds.

What does any of this have to do with us? Well if Italy melts down, that starts the entire Euro meltdown and global economic hegemonic collapse isn't the kinda thing you just ignore with optimism.

John Key's 'we don't know how lucky we are' economic plan is like taking prozac to deal with a gunshot wound to the head.

Well done Bomber .
I have a simple mind . Unfettered by any formal ' education ' and thankfully so because there's only so much I can think at any one time . Having said that , here's what I think . key's no fool . It would pay us to remember that . Secondly , he has a superb education . Thirdly , he's played with the Big Players on a Global level . Now , he's here . Playing with us . He's playing cat meet mouse . I will continue to believe we , us Kiwis et al have been played . We've been played for quite some time now and while we strive to survive , we continue to be played out and undoubtedly mocked for our pathetic attempts to survive in a country where our ' leading politicians ' tell us variously , we are unworthy , unproductive , lazy and useless and if you're a single parent or unemployed Big John Banks will build a prison for you and have you breaking rocks before you can say fascist ! All this is happening in a land of more than plenty ! Here , there's plenty to go around . And there in lies the rub . As I've asked before ... ' Then , where is the money ? ' key knows where the money is and he knows where there's more ! It's on our land . It's food production primarily and he knows that . With only four million people but a vast food production capability and 99% of that exported , he knows , we will be ok . Even if him and his parasitic , sociopathic , latte sipping mates have to forgo bathing their trotters in the farmer generated money trough in the mean time , he knows that all they [ corrupt producer boards etc ] have to do is cosset up to the suckers that are New Zealand farmers and all will be ok . The stupid New Zealand farmer is so closed minded they can't , or at least refuse to see how they're being played . They forget how hard life can become when the Latte Sippers need to feast off their blood . If Aucklanders think the Super City is that which generates our country's income and therefore is our only hope of surviving the coming global economic meltdown and more than likely with it's accompanying war and disruptions to supply lines then my advice is to get the fuck out of the Super City as fast as you can and find work on a farm . Come down to Southland ! There's only six people here and they make billions annually ! Hows that for hyperbole ? Am I joking ? Well , yes I am , although remember ;
' There's many a true word spoken in jest '

Only 4 movies!? Probably only 2 books - the Bible and that one his fawning mate Paul Goldsmith wrote about him!

4 movies has got to be a lie. Surely he's been on more international flights than that. Surely when he was a kid, he watched Tarzan.

He's saying that because it sounds cool, in a whacky way, the kind of eccentricity you'd expect in a hard working man with no time for frivolity. But I have real trouble believing it can possibly be true. You couldn't possibly understand one hundredth of modern cultural allusions without seeing movies. When John Key said "show me the money" you wouldn't get the joke.

He's as full of shit about this as he is about everything else he thinks. The guy lies constantly. Never was it more obvious than when he contradicted himself within 40 seconds about having any memory of what was on the teapot tapes.

He's a snake, and Epsom should be ashamed.

Post election lessons:
USA presidential election: In view of the disturbing upsurge in Green Party vote, perhaps we should look at the Republican campaign in the USA and learn some lessons to combat the rise of the left in NZ politics. Newt Gringrich is surging forward and has admitted his past mistakes (tax evasion, lying to Congress), and he attributes his change of heart to his religion and the fact he is now a grandfather. Perhaps centrist politicians in NZ can also concentrate on emphasising these kinds of down-to-earth qualities and in doing so get back those votes from the Green Party. For example, someone could point out that Metiria Turei is not a grandfather. If NZers had the advantage of a local Fox channel, we would know these things and vote more wisely.
Voter turnout: it is obvious that the huge number that didn’t vote didn’t deserve to and these people undermine the democratic process. Maybe the Govt. should take away their right to vote in the next election and this will save all the costs involved in bothering to register them and send them things in the mail. They’ve already done this to criminals – prisoners have been democratically disenfranchised – so there is a clear precedent. This will also combat any moves by Maori & Pacific Island communities to mobilise their forces. There are disquieting signs that these communities may, in the future, network effectively to get their people to vote for the left – South Auckland is a worry – and P users have a lot of energy to door-knock, do mail-outs & bang up billboards. – and just threaten people really to get out and vote, so I hope John is giving this some serious thought.
Being informed – Fox Channel: apparently, the pepper-spraying of Occupy protesters (somewhere in the USA), was not only a way to combat communism and anarchy, but at the same time was a health promotion exercise. Not many people know this, but thanks to Fox, we do now, that pepper spray is a natural vegetable derivative and the police were actually boosting the immune system of protesters as well as teaching them a lesson. So I think people should think about that and not be so quick to criticise modern law and order techniques.

One of the movies he just went to see recently with his little yellow- shirted mini-me Actboys. They all took turns sitting on his knee.

Rambo 1,2 3 and 4 .

I am starting to think I'll have to check in for a frontal lobotomy to be able to handle the next few years. We're going backwards so fast I feel like weeping.

Go easy on us lepers Bomber... but yeah, without wanting to join the apocalyptic disaster predictors, if Europe goes down it will all be on.

Seen “The Road” (Viggo Mortensn), movie anyone? Don’t think kiwi farmers are going to feed wandering hungry city folks, they will turn the hunting guns on you and keep the meat.

Beverley you really are such a wonderful treasure - the Birkenhead Association of Lunching Ladies of Society shall be campaigning vigorously for your recognition in the New Year's honours list.

ahem..if he's only seen 4 movies maybe it's because he prefers stills, on that Lolita site

John Banks has only ever watched 4 movies in his entire life because he was cryogenically frozen for 60 years! It's the only explanation that makes sense - fits in with the frozen robotic smile and mono-tonal phrases repeated over and over - I thought initially it was hair-dye, botox and teeth-whitening but they couldn't produce what we saw on election night! Cryogenics is still in its infancy and isn't an exact science - result - John Banks!
