The audience tell us over and over again that one of the things they love about Paul Henry is that he’s prepared to say the things we quietly think but are scared to say out loud.

    *drool* BOOBIES! Can I touch… don’t be silly, you know I will!

    • jbanks 1.1

      I have been censured, my pay docked and I have been spoken to. I have apologised and been put on the naughty step. It’s been taken care of.

      You can stop whining now Lefties.

      • bbfloyd 1.1.1

        wow.. that was remarkably stupid JB. and entirely in keeping with your personality. did you learn this idiocy at home? or was it beaten into you out by the bike sheds?

          Personal insults [check]
          No evidence to counter my point [check]

          I’m right again.

          [lprent: is [checked] like pwned? You know how I dislike that… It is a fast way to attract my attention. ]

            Right again? It’s been taken care of? Not even close, wanksie. The agreed unpaid holiday was for the GG incident. It’s the other stuff that’s going to do him in. Geddit, now?

            • jbanks

              You don’t speak on behalf of TVNZ. TVNZ have publicly said they’re not punishing him further.
              Silly moderators puppet.

              • The Voice of Reason

                Not quite woken up yet, jb? The deal may have been done on the GG incident, but they have not yet begun the disciplinary process on the rest of his displays of bigotry. The GG one may well be now sorted, but the main complaint he will have to face will be dealt with soon enough. That will be ‘bringing TVNZ into disrepute’ and given the international furore, he’s not going top have much of a defence.

                If you can find anything from TVNZ that specifically says that they are not going to punish him further, I’d love to see it. But that won’t happen, because you’ve either made it up, or you are referring to their comments about the GG insults. Have a coffee and think about it more carefully, there’s a good chap.

            A tick (known as a check mark or check in American English) is a mark used to indicate the concept “yes”, for example “yes; this has been verified” or, “yes; that is the correct answer”

            Unnecessarily explaining basic English [check]

      • headlessrd 1.1.2

        Also, JBanks, keep in mind two whole weeks from paul Henry’s salary. Oh the poor guy. How will he be able to feed himself? Maybe with the rest of his $200,000 salary paid to him by a publicly owned broadcaster which pays to him to spew his outrageous bigoted drivel.

    …..and as the talent and intelligence of populist, hatemongery-sustained despots declined, so too did “fiddling while Rome burned” give way to “Smile and Wave”: here a now-forgotten lackey attempts a final, desperate appeal to the media-driven racism of early 21st century NZ.
