    Postcard from the Nat family all looking for gold.

    Oh Mary this [country’s] a wonderful sight
    with the people here working by day and by night
    They don’t sow potatoes nor barley nor wheat
    But there’s gangs of them digging for gold in the street
    At least when I asked them that’s what I was told
    So I just took a hand at this digging for gold
    But for all that I found there I might as well be
    Where the mountains of mourne sweep down to the sea

  66. Clemgeopin 67

  85. Jagd 86

    Checking out the reports-digging up the dirt
    you get to meet all sorts in this line of work
    treachery and treason-there’s always an excuse for it
    and when I find the reasons-there’s still no excuse for it.
    And what have you got-at the end of the day
    what have you got to take away
    a block of cheese and a new set of lies
    blinkers on the people to avert their eyes.
    Scared of life-no compensation……
    private investigations.

    Deepest apologies to Dire Straits

  86. Jagd 87

    A small RWNJ crowd watches two senior cabinet ministers twerking for New Zealand! The head honcho who is also the twerking instructor looks well pleased! “The job is not yet finished, there are miles to go before we fleece, miles to go before we flee”, he whispers.

  111. Ecosse_Maidy 112

    WARNING – Disturbing content

    It was rumoured that back in 2016 President Parata and her personal hit-squad used to take former rivals out to remote locations where they would be forced to dig their own graves before being shot.

    (Please, if you find the thought of a President Parata distressing , do seek help and/or counseling and vote sensibly )

  117. Clemgeopin 118

    “Eureka, Eureka! I found it, I found it!”
