    Bye bye TV3

  2. Yeah , Jeremy , – outdoes the Hosk at playing the Hosk.

    Bring him on.

    He matches well the satire that is NZ politics. McPhail and Gadsby once did the same.

    We need more of this. It is the Kiwi way.

    Because they the politicians know ,… that if they tried on that fascist shit too hard,… we would take them out the back against the wall , execute them, and go home to have a cup of tea. NZ is more heavily armed than the US per capita.

    And yet we have more sensible gun laws than the US do. Go figure.

    Hence why NZ fascists need to instead use smarmy stealth and media manipulation to slither past their theft and self serving legislation.

    But we are now becoming wise to their foils and bullshit.

    There will never again be a a con man like John Key.

      We are not more heavily armed than the US per capita. We are 22nd with 22.6 guns per 100 residents. The US has an estimated 101 guns per 100 residents.

      “There will never again be a con man like John Key.”
      NZ is full of people like John Key – empty bonhomie is a very kiwi thing. Mostly, they just work on a smaller scale.

    Tv3 is worth watching!
    If for no other reason than Kanoa Lloyd giving bill English a bloody nose last night!
    She gave an awesome retort to the man standing letting the wind flap his gums!

      Thanks 🙂

      She followed through too. Kind of a “soft” interview though, and was that canned laughter?! Perhaps laughing at Bill is the best he can expect.

    I think it’s an inspired choice. He has the chutzpah to have bipartisan appeal. Lofty ratings, great for our TV company’s income.

    More importantly, Jeremy is more connected with you and I than his predecessor. If asked to tour Auckland in one of Hosking’s cars I think Jeremy would respond as you and I would ‘God I feel like a show pony dickhead in this thing.’

    I like his everyman cheeky boy wit, I see good chemistry potential between Newsboy and Hillary Barry. If we can’t have John Clarke, he’ll do.

      Wells’ alternative ODI cricket commentary was superb….hilarious….took him about 6 overs to describe his first encounter with sex at one point.

  7. SPC 8

    Barry and Wells could have fun “capital is power”splaining the line of Hosking via impersonations of the National MP’s as per SNL.

    Can Barry do a Collins, Adams, Kaye, Barry … etc? Or just a spitting image mask otherwise.

  8. Ka pai ROCK RADIO people you people are so hard case I have a sore face now lol Ka kite ano

      Auckland helping my daughter out she had a baby 3 days earlier i wish children came with a key board attached to them so you can program them to take ones advice LOL.
      My youngest son was quoted up to $1500 to get his vehicle fixed F that with my help an one of his friends who is getting the alternator reconditioned $200 I was taking ages getting the thing out and my eldest son come along and brute forces it out pissed me off as it turn out to have a slotted bracket on the bottom of the alternator so that was the way to get it out the vehicle. Had know youtube videos to show how to pull alternator out its to old lol .We will put reconed alternator back in tomorrow P.S I only like working on Nissan and Toyotas the rest are ——- I told him not to buy that make .Ka kite ano

    Should turn Seven Sharp into the equivalent of “Not the Nine O’Clock News” which used to screen in the UK rather this serious political propaganda which we were continually fed by National and Big Iron Mike Hoskings ?

  10. Jimmy Ramaka 11

    … even the equivalent of McPhail & Gadsby may get me back watching TVOne ?
