The crushing weight of being proved right

In the dim distant past Don Brash, former head of New Zilds shoe box of I.O.U's called the "Treasury", was a gnats eyebrow away from being elected as teh Pry Mincer (Hoban, 1980). Now he describes those self-same voters as venal and ignorant.
I hope his mother is proud of him.
However the context is important, note that he was speaking at the Uber- Right ACT party conference which was in WELLINGTON and people could have gone there and been creatively disturbing, but didn't, some people whose names are clyde and smut, is all I'm saying.
Now I think that this does away with the legend that PR firms concocted for Brash of "Gentleman Don" and "he's not a good politician, he's too honest". All of which, anyone with a nervous system slightly more advanced than a flatworm could see through like the Window of Absolute Truth, which is at the back of Plato's Cavern (no cover charge on Friday's).
Being right brings me no joy, all is ashes, because...ACT are the Gubbermeants RIGHT- hand best friends and have their mucky little paws all over several laws which we might call "A bag full of arseholes".
There may be more from this conference due to a speech wherein Maori are referred to as "attracted to  welfare". we await debellishments

A lot could be said about the honesty of a politician who led the National Party into an electoral defeat in 2006, then lost very little time before he was flirting with his supposed rival for rightwing votes (i.e. the ACT party he was recently addressing), and letting everyone know that his own policy preferences were more in tune with ACT's than with his erstwhile electorate.

It was almost as if he had been placed within National by the lobbyists for corporate interests who were tired of pumping money into ACT year after year, and were seeing if they would have better returns from their investment if they tried a hostile takeover of an existing party instead of raising the profile of a new one.

Whoa, now, you're saying that Lieberman is now living in New Zealand?

Given the way things are going, Antarctica is now the place to which to emigrate.

Firstly, I think that the Relentless Dorks should call their second Album: One-eyed Loverman.
Secondly it is relatively safe in NZ Kathleen. There is a lot of heat and no light at times and the population collectively loses it's marbles to vote in the National party every now and again.
If we didn't have these dorks we have to invent them to keep things interesting.

My friend, our girls won the gold medal in girl hockey. Whatever upside-downy tournament that was, I support the hurt feelings of such boys who must surely live with the sting of daily mockery.

Also note that there is nothing wrong with venal records if you have the right equipment and I think that you all do.
