A reader braves the words of Kat

December 5th, 2011 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

A reader e-mails me:

I’ve been enjoying your herald columns – noticed that you almost always attract comments from “kat” who I always imagine is a kind of desperate and slightly unhinged cat-lady type of person (probably totally inaccurate and certainly unfair of me, but her breathless, vitriolic, and wildly optimistic writing style somehow seems to lend that kind of impression….)

Anyways, I went through her 240-odd comments over the last year or so and pulled out some of her best work, so here for your enjoyment, is “Kat: Redux”….

PS – no comments since her last one on Nov 25 – funny that…

A brave man to go back and read all of Kat’s comments. She seems to sit all day on the newspaper sites waiting for a new post, so she can be first to denounce you and pronounce victory for the left.

I’ll post below his amusing summary of Kat’s utterings, but thought it could be amusing to have a wee challenge for readers. How about going to certain blog sites and extracting the most hilarious quotes – you know the ones – that insisted the Horizon poll was right, insisted Labour would win etc etc. Post them in comments below and I’ll try and blog the best of them. The more arrogant and confident the prediction, the better.

Goff will be PM after the election.

Equality will be the main game. The way NZ used to be before the Vandals arrived will slowly return. Roll on election day.

Lets do a bit of ‘someone else’s money gambling’ now eh Garth?

Key is dog tucker come December. Goff will be PM. Care to gamble? go on, bet against me, be like wee keyboy, or are you just full of hot air, as usual.

Playing devils advocate Kerre?

. Key is certainly coming across as the petulant child by exhibiting his naive arrogance with regards Winston. The people will decide who is the govt. Key will be licking his wounds in Hawaii come next Christmas.

Money is made round to go around.

All this talk of ‘middle class’ getting something they shouldn’t is a nonsense. National are reverting to type, they have no plan and never did other than slash and burn if the going gets tough. How bad do things really have to get before this inept govt led by its Alice in Wonderland PM is finally consigned to the political wilderness? The election in November will be about substance over style. Good riddance to the rat swallower’s and their Act thug mate.

What will really blow all this nonsense out of the water is when Goff becomes PM in November.

History repeats itself on many occasions and I sniff a repeat of the Muldoon/Rowling rise & fall in the mid 1970′s.

Only this time MMP is going to end it for National rather than the phoney cossacks that rolled Labour at the time. The constant attempts to destabilise Goff will ultimately backfire but in a round about way. The electorate in November will be voting for anyone other than the current merchants of despair; Act, National and the Maori Party.

Roll on November.

Same old, same old.

Goff as opposition leader does not have to win the election, Key will lose it. Govts are voted out. Wasn’t that the most publicised story with Clark? Stay tuned Audrey and you may get a surprise lesson in political science come November.

Key is a one trick pony, always has been, with no plan other than self adulation.

He and his bunch of tricksters will be thrown out in November. I for one don’t care that he has no clothes, the weather is warm in Hawaii.

Your a well know right wing supporter Mr Farrar so why is it not surprising your comments are so pro National to the extent you use bogus poll results as the benchmark for your opinions.
November the 26 is the real poll and get ready to be surprised, very surprised.

Kat (New Zealand)

Quite simply Fran we won’t have acceptable youth employment until we next get a Labour govt.

Nationals tinkering and blatant election grabbing media bites is never going to solve the problem. Its up to the people of this country and how they vote on November 26 that will determine the foreseeable future. God defend NZ will certainly be an appropriate anthem if we are delivered another term of National.

Kat (New Zealand)

Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 8:35 AM

What is bizarre is articles like this that continue to tell everyone that Goff and Labour are history.

National and in particular Key has had and continues to have the near full adoration from the media and that has an effect. Throw enough mud and some will stick.

This election is about Asset sales and the selling of NZ. Its about a poor performing economy. Its about the ever widening gap between the haves and the have-nots. Its about a govt that has no plan. Its also about substance vs style.

The media just love the celebrity style of Key and that is where Goff is given a raw deal. Goff will make an excellent PM, he is well qualified for the position from experience. Goff has a genuine heart for the people. Goff is the real deal.

Kat (New Zealand)

Friday, September 2, 2011 at 12:47 PM

More push polling Mr Farrar.

We are not stupid. The assets that National intend selling are strategic. Also your ‘insert’ mentioning Phil Goff and asset sales from the 1980′s is a cheap shot to further slur his name. Your articles are becoming more and more biased and only serve as feel good fodder for dyed in the wool National/Act supporters.

Woodham can’t be taken seriously when she cutely refers to the Prime Ministers lie and misleading parliament with ‘dropping the ball’ and then on one hand chastising Labour for ‘throwing money at desperate people from an ever-diminishing number of taxpayers’ yet not mentioning Nationals tax cuts which was clearly throwing money at wealthy people from an ever-diminishing number of taxpayers.

Kat (New Zealand)

Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 2:06 PM

Well its never too late Matt, better get on your bike and have all those 250,000 voters that didn’t vote for Labour in 2008 vote in 2011.

Thats what will win it for Labour, turnout!

And what about the current Horizon polling?

Kat (New Zealand)

Friday, November 18, 2011 at 12:09 PM

Mr Farrar, if your beloved ‘Brand Key’ is able to cobble together a right wing coalition following the election how long do you give that administration before it implodes?

The media, after stroking the ‘Brand Key’ dog for 3 years, will ultimately punish the dog that has now bit it. Although disastrous for the country if ‘Brand Key’ returns it would be poetic justice, in a way to see the sycophantic media devour its own pet and suffer the obvious digestive rejection.

Roll on November 26.

Kat (New Zealand)

Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 3:53 PM

‘Ultimately, National’s lead in the polls is such that this will be a minor bump in its campaign.

Not according to recent polls that you the media live. And the latest Horizon poll in particular sees Brand Key booted out.

Oh that was fun.

    I’ve seen a lot of such females who are completely sold hook, line and sinker on Labour and the Greens, because they think they are “doing whats right” for the downtrodden. They don’t have the capability to look beyond the rhetoric and catch phrases and see that its an absolute balls up to entrench further in state welfare.

    There is a sector of society that thinks Key is scurrilous and fronting an “extreme right wing agenda”. I have friends, any of which could be this Kat. In all other respects they are mild, but mention John Key and they foam at the mouth. it’s the devisive effect of socialism. Socialism is a seductive cult- no really,it’s a self-propagating belief system that doesn’t apply across the board to humanity as a universal truth. These people are ropable because they are listening to the siren-like call of socialism and they are used to Labour handouts. They all vote Labour or Greens, yet ask any of them and they wouldn’t think these parties are “socialist’ parties. They just hate on Key and ‘rich’ people without a good reason because they haven’t seen the light like me :)
    Socialism has been given fertile ground to sprout in with the slashes to the welfare system in the 90′s. Then Clark comes in; I remember building a mock shrine to her as a poor student in1999. Clark says: “we’ll redistribute the wealth by raising taxes. The rest is history in the making.
    I’ll just be sitting over here massaging my conspiracy and other alternative theories. oh since you asked, I also happen to believe Lord of the Rings is about the great struggle between Capitalism (the ring) and Communism (the eye of Sauron)

    Try mentioning to a teacher (not your own kids’) how well you think John Key is doing, it is quite entertaining. They also seem to say “John Keys” a lot which makes me think that this is how he is referred to in one of the many conferences they always seem to be attending.

    “Has anyone stopped to consider that she may be incredibly hot?”

    Strangely enough, yes. But I put it down to the fact that every week I look forward to DPF’s Herald column not for his incisive critique and intriguing analysis so much as the ubiquitous comment from Kat, wondering “how is she going to twist this one?” Presumably after a while the logic becomes inescapable: I am looking forward to hearing from her therefore she must be incredibly hot.

    Please don’t shatter my illusions.

    Imagining that she is in deed incredibly hot is a great way to forgive her her indiscretions and vitriol!

    Hmm… I thought the demerit system was inviolable. According to the demerits table current to Nov 1st, Hansen’s ban should have been lifted way before the election.

    Political censorship? Or is Hansen mistaken? Perhaps he’s making it up…… Shame if it’s the former, because it undermines the integrity of the KB judicial system.

    By any definition she’d be labelled deranged, not solely for the rabidity of her set-in-concrete views, but for the fact that she seems to have no ability to evaluate or contrast input that differs from her programmed stance.

    Like so many leftists, she’s an archetypal sort of unthinking bore, adherent so much to her own ideas of what’s what, she can’t stretch any sort of thought beyond the closed scope of her perspective.

    Some gems from phool ( i’ve done a find-and-replace on his retarded fullstops for readability)

    thanks to mmp in just a few short weeks we can support parties (mana/greens) that are demanding much of what occupy is asking for…

    the nearest phool ever got to making a correct election prediction:

    on election night national will be the party that gets the most votes
    but they will not form the next govt….
    they will be defeated by mmp…

    and their is something else you neglect at yr peril
    sue bradford is on board with mana and her organisational-skills are legendary

    on Goff

    he is on top of the knowledge needed to do the job…
    and when relaxed he demonstrates that mastery clearer …
    and yes star-bored he most definitely can smell victory…

    and heads-up!…mana are going to blow yr socks off…eh?
    http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2011/02/goff_on_7_days.html
    it will do your heads in when you see how many votes/mp’s they get
    but however you slice/dice it…
    this key/nact regime is a oncer
    eh?
    …(and if you don’t believe me…tell me how my analysis/reading is wrong/incorrecteh?)

    the top 1% own 16% of our wealth
    (that has now come to pass)
    i predicted a widespread rejection of all thisbut occupy is surpassing my best hopes

    i have said that he will be a statistical-oddity…the most popular prime minister ever voted out of office and after only one term

    shall we mark this post from farrar as the end of that era of gloating triumphalism?
    way back early in the dayi laid out for you why john key would be a on-term prime minister

    you guys are dog-tucker/played-out
    about to be swept away by change
    and if you can’t see thatyou have yr heads in the ideological-sand…

    (alsodon’t underestimate the hold ‘occupy’ will have on the global/local-zeitgeist by then….,,and the greens and

    manaand (increasingly/surprisingly) labour messages answer those calls directly…
    we are very fortunate here thanks to mmpwe can have our revolution at the ballot-box
    and in just a few short weeks too
    i am excited…
    (and as a marker in the sandwhen you have jim moraboth his guests…and the opining expert… in agreement that something

    momentous is going down…around this occupy thingyou gotta listen/watch-upeh?)
    and don’t forget…we are the 99%…eh?
    eventually/numerically…we win…
    it’s called democracy
    (sleep tight!eh?no election-result nightmareseh?…)

    well leo i guess come election night one of us will be right eh?
    i commit to publicly concede yr superior political-analysis skills should i be wrongin this forum
    will you agree to the sameshould you be wrong?

    you lot are dog-tucker…and the funny thing is…most of you don’t seem to realise that yet…
    but those with a braina functioning antenna
    will also see that…
    and remember how you were all debating whether the all blacks would beat france by either 20 or 50 points?
    you have the same rampant delusions about the upcoming election
    sleep well!
    eh?
    as i predicted back in ’08…and for the reasons i said then
    ’one-term-john’ it is…

    and my personal favourite…

    and there is another simple mathematical calculation around the harawira/mana message you would do well to

    consider…
    that is that if all of the poor voted for mana…
    they would have/end up with half the seats in parliament
    woo-hoo!eh?

    How’s that 1% of the vote working out for ya phool?
