    Campbell Live did a story on free food stores appearing and then reported most of their feedback complained the starving people looked overweight and were smoking

    Thats hilaarious.... Its like the ghosts of Archie Bunkerism and Alf Garnetists took to watching Campbell Live that night.

    Please forgive me if I have overestimated. I have no idea. I'm just waiting and watching.

  • Hard News: What Now?, in reply to Keir Leslie,

    Can I just say that one reason I am not looking forward to the politics of this is that it will include some very very hard arguments to make, where, basically, we have a group of people who (a) had already started botching the response to the previous quake, and (b) are now hugely popular? I mean, this is Bob `Dave Henderson’ `School of Music’ Parker and Gerry `sexy coal’ Brownlee we’re talking about here

    What if they turn out to be on opposite sides of the debate? I dunno, does anyone? until it starts. And I am in no haste for it to start while searchers are still looking for the dead.
    300+ casualties is pretty horrendous.

  • Hard News: Welfare: Back to the Future?, in reply to Danyl Mclauchlan,

    classify them as unemployed and then actively manage them back into the workforce, with financial penalties after six months if they’re still jobless.

    So thats how Nacts are going to get the country out of debt? Here's my suggestion all people with income or assets of over 5 mill will be classified as an arsehole. And the rest of the population can nurse them back to becoming a better human being.
    (Or an arsehole with just one arsehole not two.) The second is usually used just for spouting shit anyway. By the judicious use of financial penalties. And if, after six months, they still refuse to join the human race, they will be sent to a nice little island I know of in the middle of the South Pacific. Difficult to get to but lovely when you are there. There they can spend balmy nights at the bar making themselves pina colada's. Then again there might not be a bar.

  • Hard News: Gaying Out, in reply to Christopher Dempsey,

    marrying horses

    I think Lenny Bruce was having a good old dig at WASP conventions around sex and marriage in Psychopathia Sexualis.
    Unfortunately, back then it went over most peoples heads. And, it seems, it still does.
    I can quote more verses if you like…….Sorry if I came across as flippant.
