Blogger Still Maintains Clark Just Like Mugabe

The power-sharing arrangement Helen Clark has permitted after the opposition National party’s election victory may dissolve into violence at any time, reports an anonymous blogger who continues to insist New Zealand has become exactly like Zimbabwe.

There is increasing concern for the blogger, who appears to be trapped in the imaginary alternative universe where he lived for the last two terms of the Labour government.

Readers had believed the blogger to be freely interpreting real world events, and expected the tone to settle following the election of a National-led government. But they have now realised he is in fact mentally locked in “a whole nother universe”.

His recent posts indicate that in ‘HelenGrad’ violent unrest and oppression are increasing, inflation has hit a record 500 000% and refugees are fleeing across the border to South Africa.

Indeed.

    [Interestingly, Farrar appears to have removed any images of his ‘Clark is a dictator’ billboard campaign from the web, including those on Kiwiblog and on the Free Speech Coalition website. There’s still one in our archives though.]

    That was a pretty good piece. 🙂 I especially liked the nod to I/S and his post about John Key meeting the Queen wearing pants.

    I thought the FSC billboards weren’t too bad… they made their point to passing motorsist in a few seconds, as such things have to. And politics is increasingly conducted in the language of either hyperbole or cliche (cf Lyndon’s piece, in the same article, about reprogramming of word processors, or anything ever said by Kevin Rudd). Their Tauranga poster (Winston holding a sign saying “NO [cheques, cash only]” was better than the “Mao” ones, however.

    I couldn’t find a very clever Newstopia interview with “Rudd’s speechwriter”, which perfectly captured the incomprehensible drivel the Australian PM spouts, but here’s a short clip that picks up many of the themes of Lyndon’s piece. Enjoy.
