Hooray Henry!

Some genuinely good news from the Mediaworks empire; it seems that Paul Henry may have finally been told to do one.

The NZ Herald is reporting that the mental midget is to leave his TV3 show at the end of the year.

Breakfast is to be hosted by Duncan Garner next year, or so the Herald reckons.

Henry’s recent sexist outburst would have seen you or I sacked.

However, only his producer has been put through a disciplinary process relating to that episode.

It’s probably only a remarkable coincidence that the short notice period Henry is giving roughly mirrors what would be expected from someone in a senior position who was resigning in disgrace.

So I don’t know for sure that he has gone because this was one incident too many, but shouldn’t we be told?

C’mon, MediaWorks, you’re in the news business. Tell us the truth. Why is Henry going? Why wasn’t he disciplined, when his producer was? Or was he sacked and you’re too shy to tell us?

Hopefully this is the last time we see the bigoted fool on our TV screens. Maybe he could try Australia? Oh, wait …

Bye, Paul.

And good luck in your next job. If you lift yourself, you could be average.

    Which seat will he be standing in, I wonder. Prolly not one with an Indian community.

    • NZJester 1.1

      Maybe he is inline for a possibly soon to be vacant seat just before the next election? Key will keep backing Murray Mccully right up till election time and then possibly drop him to try and make it look like they are not corrupt and so need a new National Stooge with name recognition to drop in his East Coast Bays seat.

      • Mike the Lefty 1.1.1

        He has stood for National (in Wairarapa) in the past, so it really wouldn’t be a surprise if he popped up high on the Natzksi list. I don’t think they would take a chance on him as an electorate candidate.

        • Lanthanide 1.1.1.1

          According to the National Party rules, they only allow 5 MPs to be list-only and not contest an electorate.

          Seems unlikely they’d give that privilege to a new-comer.

          • Mike the Lefty 1.1.1.1.1

            If they did, Henry would be the perfect choice. Egotistic, rascist, intolerant, foulmouthed and a John Key bootlicker – just the kind of person National needs for the all-important redneck vote.

        • gsays 1.1.1.2

          Yes he did stand in the very blue wairarapa and lost to Georgina Beyer.

    • johnny 1.2

      good riddance and goodbye please take hoskins with you to maybe oz they still love you over there

  2. ropata 2

    He was actually pretty funny at times. So maybe he can join the crude comedy circuit.

  3. Brian Smith 3

    He might be the candidate for Helensville in 2018

  4. Richard Rawshark 4

    The Paul Henry Party.

    ?

  5. Macro 5

    And good riddance!
    The man is a perfect tit twit!
    Offence intended.
    Now all we need to see is the back of Mike Hosking and NZ TV might become worth watching again

    • Chris 5.1

      “Now all we need to see is the back of Mike Hosking and NZ TV might become worth watching again”

      You beat me to it.

    • NZJester 5.2

      I would have been very offended if you had not crossed out your fist idea of what to call him as those are things that are useful in the health and raising of babies and should not be used as an insult. Especially about someone as low brow as him!

      • Richard Rawshark 5.2.1

        Macro. try left nut then, pretty useless once used.

      • Macro 5.2.2

        It was Henry who used the word first…
        and then said he never intended to cause any offence.
        That he is such an insensitive twit; the offence he caused completely escaped him!

      • GregJ 5.2.3

        It’s use in this context may have no relation to its use for teats though. The OED attributes the following to the origin of the slang term:

        ————————————-
        tit, sb.7 slang. Etymology: Of uncertain origin: perh. f. tit sb.6; cf. tit sb.3, twit sb.1 2 b.

        A foolish or ineffectual person, a nincompoop.
        —————————————

        That seems a pretty accurate use of the term in Henry’s case! 🙂

        It may well derive from the follow use of the term:

        —————————————
        tit (n.2)

        1540s, a word used for any small animal or object (as in compound forms such as titmouse, tomtit, etc.); also used of small horses. Similar words in related senses are found in Scandinavian (Icelandic tittr, Norwegian tita “a little bird”), but the connection and origin are obscure;
        ——————————————

        • Richard Rawshark 5.2.3.1

          There is a bird called a blue tit. Tory species..i’d guess?

          Blue and great tits form mixed winter flocks, and the former are perhaps the better gymnasts on the slender twigs.

          and that particular line, no doubt would have caused Paul Henry some distress. Much childish giggling.

          An interesting example of culturally transmitted learning in birds was the phenomenon dating from the 1960s of blue tits teaching one another how to open traditional British milk bottles with foil tops, to get at the cream underneath. This behaviour has declined recently because of the replacement of doorstep delivery by supermarket purchases of milk, and by hard-topped containers instead of the old bottles.

          they seem to be flummoxed quite easy, a definite tory trait.

          yes I think Henry does fit the title Blue tit.

    • tc 5.3

      The issues at TVNZ run a lot deeper than whoever is reading the auto cue or in Hoskins case re-ranting what’s on newstalk ZB and being paid heaps for zero journalistic skills.

  6. BM 6

    I read somewhere that his Mum is on the way out.

    Apparently they’re very close, which is probably why he’s taking a break.

    • Richard Rawshark 6.1

      Well that must explain his breast fetish. When they get to 12, it really is time to stop.

      • Chuck 6.1.1

        Richard that’s taking things way too far…

        • Richard Rawshark 6.1.1.1

          Here’s a hanky..

          • infused 6.1.1.1.1

            You wonder why no one gives a shit about your personal situation. Take a good look at yourself dickhead.

            • Richard Rawshark 6.1.1.1.1.1

              I did..

              I’m sorry. I really am, I am so sorry I crossed the line and had a dig at Paul.

              then I thought to myself of the recent interview, embarrassing someone like that, in a public place loudly commenting on the shape of her breasts etc oh and a lady called dipshit..

              Then I remember some of the things they said about DC after he resigned, what the national aprties been saying about labour, what henry says about Labour.. and on..

              pfft

              Faux outrage is such an understatement. why are you guys here?

              • Sam C

                I know that Labour is supposedly a “broad church”, but with friends like Richard in the tent, who needs enemies?

            • Richard Rawshark 6.1.1.1.1.2

              I don’t wonder that, ever, never have…

        • Richard Rawshark 6.1.1.2

          robust comedy..if you can’t stand the heat get out of the Kitchen

    • Muttonbird 6.2

      Where’s she going – to a tittie bar?

      • Richard Rawshark 6.2.1

        Hootens, it called.

      • BM 6.2.2

        Man, you’re such a [deleted].

        If there’s anyone here I’d wish pain and misery on, it would be you.

        [You’re right that the comment was a step too far, BM, but your response is pretty poor too and I detect a distinct whiff of faux outrage about it. You both can (and should) do better. TRP]

        • Richard Rawshark 6.2.2.1

          Thanks, i’m too busy being insensitive too the most insensitive [deleted] I ever fucking saw or had the pain to ever fucking listen too.

          so excuuuusssseeee ME.

        • Muttonbird 6.2.2.2

          Have a lie down, precious.

    • James 6.3

      If that’s the case – that would be very sad.

      • Molly 6.3.1

        Why? Do you know her personally?

        Or are you often in the company of people who resign from their jobs in their fifties because of the ill health of their parents? (As a matter of fact, I am sometimes, but usually done anticipating great financial hardship and in order to do the hard working caring for them.)

        If neither of these, you are choosing a pseudo attempt at generating empathy for Paul Henry, if indeed he is leaving.

        Don’t bother, I already feel for him. To live in his world full of half baked opinions, sycophants and miserable worldviews is enough to make me pity him.

        Still think he deserves condemnation for his mindless insults, bad commentary and gratuitous public utterings though.

    • Richard Rawshark 6.4

      OH BM BURNNNNNNN

      http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501119&objectid=11744321

      Get your writing pad out and get that letter of faux horror off to the Herald.. and that goes for you Blue tits that backed BM up Below.

      last laugh goes to RR.

      smug satisfaction–check

    • Cinny 6.5

      What’s wrong with his Mum please BM?

  7. Richard Rawshark 7

    I wish McPhail and Gadsby were around, political comedy would be gold right now.

    • Drowsy M. Kram 7.1

      Like the suggestion of a new role for Henry on the comedy circuit. He might have been remembered more fondly if he’d played it strictly for laughs.

      Tony Hancock – “The Radio Ham”:
      Hello, the blue tits have been at the top of the milk again. Look at my gold top, pecked to ribbons it is.
      They must have beaks like pneumatic drills some of them. I will not have great feathered heads stuck in my milk bottles guzzling the cream. It’s that landlady. It’s her who encourages them round here. Her and her coconut shells and bits of bacon rind hanging all over the place.
      They’ve been at my farmhouse [bread] as well. Look at it, great feet marks all over it. It’s not good enough. Birds have no right to be in towns. Why don’t they stay in the country where they belong? Wait till they perch on my aerial with a lump of my bread in their mouth. I’ll shove a few hundred volts through it, that’ll make their feet tingle.

    Paul Henry would be an excellent New Zealand First MP.

    Popular, salty, good with the media, would only last a term but who cares, bit of a lad. Identical to Jones and Tamihere in manners and jokes.

    A great addition to Peters’ family.

    • Richard Rawshark 8.1

      Saddling Winston with Henry has got to be the evilest plan I ever heard.

      I like it.

  9. Well,….

    I think under the circumstances Mr Henry could do with a song , perhaps this could be his departure song to be sung at his seeing off from his TV station.

    At least it seems to retain an element of desperate hope… which is relevant I should imagine with his future career prospects from now on….

    • Richard Rawshark 9.1

      That song makes me think of happier times.

      WTF.. how can you listen to that and think of better times.. What is wrong with my head.

  10. mosa 10

    He would have to be a list MP i just cant see him having the care or empathy to have constituents.

    My pick is he will have the 7pm slot on Three when they dump Story heading into election year.

    Then Mr Key will feel safe when fronting up for a chat with like minded company…
    nothing to awkward or stressful.

    Great publicity for Brand Key.

    Take your pick

    Hateful Hosking or hideous Henry.

  11. Henry Filth 11

    “C’mon, MediaWorks, you’re in the news business. Tell us the truth. ”

    I’m lost for words.

    • tc 11.1

      They’re in the entertainment business driven by ratings….news was an early casualty.

    • Richard Rawshark 11.2

      Seems your fingers are still functioning HF?

      The news is some tory twat got the arse. Don’t damage the door when it hits you on the way out.

      • Henry Filth 11.2.1

        Once more?

        Maybe you could type slowly so it makes sense.

        • Richard Rawshark 11.2.1.1

          Hmm first part was informational, Henry quit. Second part was a comment to Henry to not let the door get damaged as it hit his arse on the way out.

          My apologies I see now how that was not what it reads. I “chuckle” think you nailed it.., slow down.

  12. Tiger Mountain 12

    Henry comes from the egotistical anchorman genus, legend has it there was one in the ’states named ‘Dick Pounder’, which would certainly suit tory sycophant Paul

    the existential angst in his Herald interview was understandable, who doesn’t have times when other people are almost too much to bear; but this guy goes out of his way to rile up people and be on air senior vice president of the “Key Love” club (Hosking is Pres.) and be paid handsomely for denigrating the working poor, homeless, women and anyone fighting back

    don’t just go Mr Henry–piss off!

  13. jono 13

    Yep I am just about certain he will stand in a National party electorate or on the list. The timing is perfect…

    • Richard Rawshark 14.1

      Perhaps monotonous news lite and puff piece stories don’t have a future as well as right wing shock jocks.

      Poor Mike.. ..poor , poor Mike
      as in your starting to be the odd one out and we’re all looking at you now Hoskings.
