Chris Trotter – Off the Deep End

David Farrar and Sir Humphery record the moment Chris Trotter lost it. I hope he read this blog on his way around.

Actually, wastn’t that a few weeks ago when he said corruption was ok in government so long as it was for the benefit of the left?

This is of course, yet another fiendish scheme by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to discredit their critics. The real Chris Trotter is locked up in a safe house in South Auckland trying to untie himself…

NZ Politics Today

Whale Oil is right, the gloves are off.

Labour has the cheek to say on National TV “stop the tittle-tattle, and call the dogs off”.

They have already and Clark dismissed it.
Unfortunately for her, it wasn’t a public pulling back, it was private. This, in my opinion, gives it much more credibility

Don Brash has also ordered removed a photo which shows Helen Clark as a Lebian Darth Vader – however that picture has been around for quite some time.
David Farrar defines Corruption, and find the glove fits very nicely thank you very much.

Both David and Sir Humphery give examples of Labour dishing it out in the past – it seems they now can’t take it.

Not surprising, as this time it’s real.

I would go so far as to say the further left you go, the more easily the corruption word is used to describe opponents. It’s just something that they always do. Labour was slightly more restrained (as it’s a mainstream party) in that it tried to have a incident to point to that might be spun that way.
Helen is now claiming that the word “corruption” has no place in a Western democracy.

Except the law her govenment passed? Oh wait, that was passed by the National party, Labour just failed to ammend that section after, oh, 7 odd years in power.

The fact is, the above quite makes me feel sick. Really sick. Are they seriously saying that no one in western society can be corrupt? No, in western society you can be corrupt, it’s just much harder to get away with it, as we have respected, independent instutions.

Well, we did have. And Labour was caught by one.

So in a sence, they are proving themselves correct.

Or at least they will when the call a new election.

Maybe then I’ll feel better.

Too much Heat, not enough Light

Sir Humphery’s has a very thoughtful piece on the Pope’s speech.

“Sitting here thinking tonight, it came to me what Benedict was doing. I’ve read the entire speech a couple of times now, and I think that what he’s doing is reaching out to us, all of us that live in the West.”

Far, far too many people who are reacting to what the Pope said have failed miserably to give the slightest thought to what he actually said.

In fact, it seems that anything that might criticize Muslims is enough to provoke them, even the observation that they reaction to criticism with violence!

But the thing that got me thinking was the observation that the Crusades were a reaction, rather than being simply agressive. People forget how much of the world is Islam through force, the Crusades being the only time christians made the mistake of using it themselves.

Hmm.
