It seems to be the season of books and faux book covers movie posters. Mary-Ellen O’Connor has published a Nats’ cook book. Proceeds of the sales will apparently be donated to the “centre left”.

Kim Knight reports on Stuff:

Energy and Resources Minister Simon Bridges apparently goes for “any recipes with lots of oil”. Gerry Brownlee, the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery, is alleged to favour a pickle with custard. And Finance Minister Bill English supposedly bakes a mean banana republic – oops – cake.

A new cookbook purporting to contain the National Party’s “recipes for victory” is more political roast than toast, with the author confirming her main intent is to make people laugh.

The book began circulating last week. Nelson author Mary-Ellen O’Connor says she’ll be in Wellington next week, selling the $5 volume on the streets. Profits from the book (unauthorised and not endorsed by any political party) are likely to be donated to the “centre left”.

The book’s text plays on O’Connor’s perception of National MPs and their portfolio performances.

Paula Bennett, Social Development and Employment Minister, is credited with a “mean and hungry meal plan” which includes a lunch of “chips and Coke from the school canteen”, and Judith Collins, under fire recently for her dinner with Oravida bosses in China, features with a recipe for a black and white neenish tart with two swirls on top. “People have said these resemble my eyebrows, but actually they’re the Chinese characters for ‘I love you’.”

Meanwhile Neetflux has some tasty covers faux movie posters [h/t Draco T Bastard]:

    Neetflux are movie posters, not book covers (well, the first one is a book cover, but the rest aren’t).

    Here’s my favourite: http://neetflux.tumblr.com/image/90000254037

    When immigration minister, Micheal Woodhouse went to meet and greet rich donor Liu, he took with him a dish of liu meet and came back with some dirty tarts for Key.
