Danyl M has done many a fine satirical comment here, under the tagline The Dim Post. I’m delighted to have spotted he has set up his own Dim-Post blog. I suggest people subscribe to it.
His latest effort is on Judith Tizard’s interview:
‘I think my most significant achievement in the past eighteen years has been to serve as an MP for eighteen years,’ she said. ‘That’s not something you can achieve in just a few months. It takes at least a decade.’
Also he ponders what Helen Clark will do when she retires, with the top choice being:
Publish ‘Fisting Ian’, a weekly magazine featuring speculative stories about the sex life of reporter Ian Wishart
And also over the weekend he reveals how the Green Party will vote for Labour’s law to outlaw the Green Party:
The Labour Governments proposed bill to dissolve the Green Party took a step closer to being passed into law today after Green leaders Jeanette Fitzsimons and Russell Norman confirmed that they would vote in favour of the legislation.
The Environmental Electoral Vengeance Bill is currently before the Justice and Electoral select committee. If the law is bought into effect then membership of the Green Party will become a criminal offense punishable by ten years in prison and fines of up to three hundred thousand dollars.
‘This bill clears up many of the problems caused by potential Labour supporters casting their votes for inappropriate parties,’ Justice Minister Annette King announced during a pre-committee press conference. …
Green Party cooperation was critical to passing the controversial law. The National Party withdrew its support when Justice Minister King introduced an amendment incorporating National into the bill.
While the National Party will not be outlawed, votes cast in favor of the opposition party will be transfered to Labour and counted in their favor. Under current polling this will see Labour voted back into power with approximately 110 seats and able to govern alone. National leader John Key has condemned the bill and criticized King’s handling of the legislation, although he has confirmed that if he somehow becomes Prime Minister he will not seek to change the bill in his first term.
That one hits the mark on so many issues. Labour’s outrageous electoral gerrymandering. The Greens willingness to support Labour no matter what, and National’s tendency to condemn things but not change them 🙂
I’ve added The Dim Post to my blogroll as a Centre blog. Danyl is really a bit of a leftie, but his humour hits all sides, so in the centre he sits for now 🙂
