    Don’t forget they have another secret club which has been partly busted :


    • tc 1.1

      yup the club that helps them get elected by smearing the opposition, provides fodder for the MSM lapdogs, subverts the OIA process etc

      It’s the club that allows the others to prosper, without it they would’ve been turfed out.

  2. Not forgetting the old boys’ club and the golf club.

    I wonder if there’s a property speculators’ club or asset stripping bankers’ club?

    • Once was Tim 2.1

      There’s definitely the latter (its a subsidiary of the NZ Banker’s Assn. – it hovers outside the purview of NZBA corp comms). I’m not sure where they meet these days …. the Wellesley Club maybe? ….. which “welcomes members and guests in a dignified atmosphere in gracious surroundings where cherished traditions endure”, and the poor club are barred – unless they’re there to change the toilet rolls.

  3. Hauraki is advertising the Pelican Club at the moment. Over 120 ladies waiting to serve your pecadilloes. Just the thing after a night on the pokies I guess. NZ has sold its soul

    • ghostwhowalksnz 3.1

      Cabinet Clubs are another rort.

      The ministers arrive in a taxpayer funded limo, but in theory walk into the meeting as ordinary Mps.

      Thats because national claims that there isnt any’ pay for access’ to ministers. No siree.
      All above board, no bending of rules, all hunky dory.

      All bullshit!

    Be in no doubt it matters not which government has control the club memberships don’t do politics

    • One Anonymous Bloke 4.1

      In fact, they spend a considerable amount of time and resources manufacturing consent via politics, and that’s before we even discuss the nuclear free and UN mandate policies pursued by Lab4 & 5.

      If you’re going to resist them, you really ought to get to know them better first.

      • The Murphey 4.1.1

        That’s right OAB they use the political process to manufacture consent

        However that was not my angle

        • One Anonymous Bloke

          You think there’s no jockeying for position, no competition between them?

          The fact is, when Wikileaks releases their secret messages, it turns out they’re going at it hammer and tongs.

          Where’s the value in pretending they’re some sort of monolith, bereft of internal dissent? Know thine enemy.

          • The Murphey

            It is probable there are differing perspectives

            The acceleration in global decline speaks to the power imbalances

    And john key is now the voted for leader of the IDU U ‘club’. (International Democratic Union or hideous global network of right wingers club.)

    To me key is beginning to epitomise the banality of evil (especially after his latest irresponsible act of warmongering jingoism and unnecessary possible orange shroud creating Kiwi troop deployment.)
    but what’s worse is that he has managed to infect a whole teamkey of his own with said banality. Truly hideous.

    • One Anonymous Bloke 5.1

      David Lange used to quote a Spitting Image joke about Thatcher in his speeches:

      She’s at dinner with her cabinet. The waiter takes her order:

      “Steak. Raw.”

      “…and the vegetables?”

      “They’ll have the same”.

      I’m not sure Key gets the blame for that one 🙂

    • Sacha 5.2

      Sounds like the Taxpayers Onion aren’t that original.

  6. Clemgeopin 6

    How about their
    That alone is worth millions!
    Remember them? Still going strong or quietly gone underground? I don’t know. May be only Joyce and God know!

  7. mary_a 7

    All together now … Ye Olde Natsy Fight Club!

  8. Paul 8

    The Northern Club

  9. saveNZ 9

    Great cartoon!

    Forgot the Skysore money laundering club.

    • tc 9.1

      That’s not a NZ new club it’s a member of the pre existing Casino Club, they do the same the world over. Morrison was imported from asian casinos to take it up a notch.

      It’s just easier here with our msm being owned, looky who the commms GM is now….Colon Espinner

  10. HumPrac 10

    He uses his CLUB to (allegorically) beat NZers heads.

  11. Murray Rawshark 11

    The Jimmy Saville Tribute Club, with a starring appearance, in costume, by David Farrar. The most active member keeps his identity secret, but is rumoured to be a prominent New Zealander.

  12. SMILIN 12

    Dont forget “Bury the truth and BS hard out club” Jez done it again thats the National Party

  13. Sable 13

    Or the Obama’s stooges club…..

  14. redfred 14
