In the Heraldthey’re reporting that the sun is bombarding us with radiation from the biggest solar storm in more than six years.Six years! And what is John Key’s government doing about this crisis? I’ll tell you. They’ve all buggered off to Ratana to kowtow to the locals there, even as the radiation from the sun bombards each and every one of us!

Still, it’s just what I’d expect from this radiation-friendly government. Forget the whole anti-nuclear policy that Key claims to now support. The Nats have always been lukewarm on keeping us safe from the effects of radiation, and this just provides further evidence.

If you think “so what, nothing much happened to us when this last occurred in 2005”, then you’re woefully wrong, and your profound ignorance should be placed on a pedestal so that generations of children to come may see it and be amused.

So you think 2005 wasn’t bad? Think again!

  • George Bush was inaugurated for his second term as President of the US
  • Hurricane Katrina struck
  • An earthquake in Kashmir killed tens of thousands
  • Ronnie Barker died
  • The Backstreet Boys re-formed.

And as if that wasn’t awful enough, the pestilential evil that was Star Wars Episode III was released that  same year. I suppose the only shining light was that Episode III brought to a merciful end one of the most overblown, overrated and underwhelming movie series in cinematic history.

So the question I want answered, and that we should all be asking, is this:

John Key, what is your government doing to blot out the sun?

    Woah. Deja vu.

  2. Obviously my blogpost was so good they thought it was worth repeating

      Yeah looks like a bit of a ditto. Corrected and removed the second copy. Sorry about that, I will send an e-mail to the editor who put it up to tell them to lay off (sniffing) the paste for a while.

      Now to be fair National did try to ban water:


      Jacqui is has recently been appointed as Chairperson of the Law and Order Select Committee which considers matters relating to corrections, courts, criminal law, police, and serious fraud. Jacqui is enthusiastic that this role gives her the opportunity to support the creation of legislation that will maintain effective law enforcement and create safer communities for all New Zealanders.

        The one and only time I have seen Jacqui Dean in action was on Back Benchers about six months ago. She came across to me as a bimbo who tried to win the debate by shouting her opponents down.

    Does that mean you have to republish all of them?

  5. what is kweewee going to do?
    hide in the bunker and look for someone to payoff to get rid of it.

  6. Scott you should also think about posting the odd comment.

    A funny yet sharp response to some of the trolling that happens around here would be a welcome contribution.

    Never mind Episode III.
    What about the 1984 approach used in the 1997 re-release of Episode IV?
    Han shot first damnit.

    Actually, I never got Winston’s job (the original aspidistra Winston, not the one we have who was named after him): Just as it is today there is no way a journo in Airstrip One would have gone to the library to look up an old issue of the Times for fact checking. Why check facts when evidence for the benevolence of BB is all around?
