We’ve launched an interview this week with HomeBrew and @peace artist Tom Scott. I had the pleasure of interviewing him and watching him be a part of the Enrolment Party that we hosted a few weeks ago (thank you Generation Zero and their enrolment support, and thanks to RockEnrol for stealing the spotlight on TV3). Tom Scott’s a talented and creative musician who is passionate about getting you out there to vote in these elections. Wake up to your rights as citizens
in New Zealand. His mantra is fantastic, and he’s super cheeky about it. Recently he wrote a song entitled “Kill the PM.” Yes this is naughty, but I think the amount of media coverage and the huge slur around this is unnecessary, what about our rights as citizens to speak our own opinions.
All the young women at Otago University might want to reflect on the fact their student president thinks a song expressing a desire to kill the Prime Minister and implicitly rape his daughter is just a bit naughty, and that criticism of the song is a slur, and that there is a right to express an opinion that you want to implicitly rape someone to piss off their father.
