The Chookyard Uprising

Chris Trotter has a hilarious piece of satire in this week’s Independent.

http://www.theindependent.co.nz/index2.html

He speculates on the ruckus which would have erupted had Dominatrix and her Aztec landed less gently than it did – the ensuing chook fight as the wannabes claw, scratch and peck for the top spot in the Chookyard.

Only a dreamy eyed and fully depreciated leftie, overexposed to passive smoking in an opium den could observe “…….and New Zealand would today be in deep mourning for the third Labour Prime Minister to die in office.” What influence this woman has over her journalistic acolytes! Fact is, most of New Zealand would pay the minimum respect befitting the office but little if any respect for an individual who has done more than any PM to earn herself ridicule, reproach and contempt.

Mr Trotter’s next flight of fancy is his unflattering (to the Brit PM, that is) comparison of British PM Tony Blair with the Chief Smarm. Blair should sue Trotter for defamation. “……..both politicians are highly intelligent, ferociously articulate, and blessed with telegenic faces.” Pity Mr Trotter forgot about the Midas touch. Everything Blair touches turns to gold while any piece of gold Maharey touches turns to lead.

Confirmation that we are reading a fairy tale comes with the serious suggestion that “…Goff and Kim Beazely would produce a more productive trans-Tasman relationship than any other likely combination.” The pink tinged rose coloured glasses world of left wing dreamers still imagines that Australian Labor’s long time loser one day will hold office. Kim Beasely has all the electoral traction of walrus blubber.

The piece de resistance though comes with the unintended relevation by the over-exuberant scribe of Labour’s secret fifteen year agenda, the existence of which was trumpeted by John Tamihere. “Bedding in a regime based on a more interventionist state, higher tax levels of taxation and expanded trade union influence would require abandoning Labour's current Third Way policy settings.“ There you have it folks. The stark reality at last is out in the open. Straight from the horse’s mouth.

That’s what you’re going to get from three more years of Labour. Scary stuff, eh? I’ll put my money and my vote on Little Johnny and Little Donny any day of the week.

Adolf, I found myself heavily, and I might add angrily, annotating the office copy of the Independent, until it dawned on me that Trotter was taking the piss.

Yes, I agree, the Trotsky was taking the piss. In the "you are not left enough" kind of way.

I'm not so sure it was straight from the horses mouth, or perhaps directly from the Ass's backside?

Maybe Adolf's point is the truth is right in front of you?
