Not Cricket

Filk Off missed a golden opportunity to win huge kudos and plenty of votes but as usual it was mishandled, bungled, stuffed up or whtever you want to call it. Instead of siezing the opportunity, Filk today issued a strident brave statement of intent, namely to ban the Zimbabwean cricket team from touring here in Jauary.

Too late Filk. The damage has already been done. Mugabe will milk the Slack Caps for all the publicity he could ever want while they are touring in Zimbabwe. Talk about horses, stables and bolting.

The same Gummint that was so quick to steal the tsunami match for a bullshit publicity stunt could ans should have quietly got alongside NZ Cricket, let it be known that this tour is not in anyone's best interest and offered to underwrite any costs associated with cancellation.

Instead, Mugabe opens the batting and scores a century while Goff gets to carry the drinks.
