Labour did it too

Tautoko Mangō Mata has discovered the words to a mystery song buried deep in a Crosby Textor staff manual.

Verse 1
If the Public have uncovered
A shonky deal we made
We bring out Teflon John and
the full snake-oil brigade
with echo chamber Hoskings
and the right wing Herald aids
to sing the Crosby Textor line
Till all the uproar fades, ohhhhhhhhhhh

Labour did it too, mate
Labour did it too
We inherited it from Labour
So what else could we do?

If ever we’re in trouble
And the news has turned to pooh
Then it’s time to plug the same old line
“Labour did it too!”

Verse 2
McCully bribed a Saudi
So we’d get an FTA.
It cost eleven million plus
with flying sheep away.
When sheep pellets hit the fan
and documents exposed
a shonky deal, then out comes John
with Crosby Textor prose. Oh…….

Labour did it too, mate
Labour did it too
We inherited it from Labour
So what else could we do?

    If we can’t beat the dirty tactics head on, then let’s mock them so that we expose the tactics and diminish their influence, cf Jon Stewart, John Oliver.)

    John Key’s explanation this morning contained some pearls like “not an accurate reflection”

    “different view” could lend itself nicely to a limerick……. any poets out there?

    They have successfully drummed that phrase out there delaying the paperwork that shows the truth and now that the evidence is exposed showing Labour did nothing wrong. The sheepple are now resistant to the message due to National continued false claims drowning out the truth while we could not point to the paperwork to expose what they said was a lie. Some people are now sick of hearing about it that they don’t want to hear any more of the story now we have the evidence to show Nationals claims are false. It has been going just as National had hoped up to now with so many believing it was Labours fault and now to stubborn to look at the truth.

    Excellent! I can hear the heavenly choir in black singlets, shorts, and gumboots with a tinny in hand singing this anthem even now. 🙂

    Verse 3
    We never thought the documents
    Would see the light of day.
    Incriminating evidence
    Exposed by OIA
    And now they want us to release
    legal advice today
    It’s time to get our songsheets out
    in Crosby-Textor way……..

    The other bonus with blaming Labour or others, is that it is so simple, even within the mass of lies, JK and the Nats, can just remember to say the line ‘labour does it too’.

    Since we have zero guts or ability in the MSM as they are replaced, this line is never questioned with any appropriate response like so what? Do you need to copy Labour? Haven’t National been in power for years now, isn’t it about time to take responsibility? etc

    Now Brownlee’s shonkey dealings
    are all coming to light
    When folk spoke without foundation
    They’ve proven to be right
    He’s neck deep in liquefaction
    And he will be made to pay
    unless you
    Get those bloody songsheets out
    The Crosby Textor way

    Young Sam lotu Liga
    needed a new car
    so shonkey John Key made him
    The new Corrections Czar
    But SERCO is a circus
    it’s gone massively astray
    And the only way to save him is
    The Crosby Textor way
