No wonder no one wants to bring up Tax, when the media are so bloody weird about it. Just look across the ditch.
This gottach fetish the NZ and Aussie media have has got to stop, just a friendly reminder to the media – your looking like right dicks.
As usual Chloe Swarbrick encapsulates what we should expect from our representatives:
Always liked the Goon Show
Received this email in response to signing the Change Org. petition concerning Mike Hosking and his dearly beloved whose name I can never remember:
MAR 7, 2023 —
Hello to all who have signed our petition, 8797 people that want to see Hosking and Hawkesby removed from Newstalk ZB.
It appears the expression has another meaning involving the word c**t.
Does anyone know whether Hosking has responded to the claim made about his use of the words "See you next Tuesday"? For example has he used the expression before with regular interviewees or was this the first time?
It could be that he didn't know. I consider myself reasonably up to date with urban cultural expression and I didn't know about it until 5 or so years ago.
Haven't studied the immediate discussion afterward (I'd rather gouge my eyes out), but that might have clues whether it was deliberate or not. Telling if he uses it again. The sentence he used was grammatically correct if he meant to call Hipkins a c**t.
Also, was Hipkins in studio face to face, and more importantly will he be next Tuesday? That is the question, otherwise it does point to Hoskings using the term with full knowledge, because it is quite specific…
If Hoskins did do this deliberately it’s all good because it shows he’s losing it and will be gone the way of Paul Henry and Sean Plunket before long.
In fact it’s a very, very Paul Henry thing to say.
I reckon Mikey's urban cultural expression starts with the patchy stubble and finishes with the skinny jeans.
Well, if that gammon didn't know about it, fine. His crew certainly would have but they can't stop him blurting out live something he thought leftie-owning clever.
"It could be that he didn't know."
Perchance I picked up on this Herald item:
He didn't know. Never heard of the ‘other meaning’ before nor had the ZB team. I accept that. The authors of the petition should have done their homework before sending the email.
Sure it's CU Next Tuesday (been known as such for decades, not my Monday morning quarterback).
But if someone has a regular interview with someone on a Tuesday (say PM's in a row Key/English/Ardern/Hipkins) it's probably not personal (nor even an in joke if its done in ignorance).
Indeed, but there are a few riders to that as mentioned above.
It really is quite a specific term whether you know the pop culture meaning or not. Ask yourself this, why say Tuesday at all? It used to be Monday and Monday doesn't work.
It appears to have been a Tuesday thing. If I recall the PM's did TV on Monday and ZB radio on Tuesday.
Ardern also did it on Tuesday, but Key and English were Monday.
And here is me thinking it was Caring, unusually nice type.
Very good news!
Already 1.4M people have failed to comply, how many will be filling out forms tomorrow as their act of rebellion?
It struck me as odd that we were allowed (encouraged) to complete our census forms prior to census day…. I get the rationale, however it is contrary to the stated purpose of the census and assumes we can predict the future.
Probably Max Key or equivalent.
