Three strikes and you’re garrotted

The Toad’s ‘interview’ with ACT’s David Garrett is so good we had to steal it. Like all good parody, it’s easy to believe it could be real.

An interview with ACT Party Law and Order spokesperson David Garrotte


Toad: David, for many people, you first came to public attention when you appeared drunk on Eye to Eye.

Garrotte: Yeah, I was pretty pissed. I’d been on it all afternoon.

Toad: And you equated homosexuals with paedophiles on Eye to Eye. Are you homophobic?

Garrotte: Hell, no! I just don’t like poofters – or any other perverts or deviants for that matter.

    Is this for real?

  2. John Dalley 2

    You are taking the Piss, aren’t you?

  3. bobo 3

    Sounds if this is real, he was drunk again..

    What part of “parody” do you not understand?

    Just go to show what happens when you don’t notice that you are being taped.

    How is it possible that this man garnered an income working in the field of Justice?

    An oik! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    I am so looking forward to this clown having a “Jeff Gannon” moment sometime in the next 2.5 years.

    Thanks for the compliment Eddie.

    Has anyone else noticed the physical resmblance between Garrett and Enoch Powell of “Rivers of Blood” notoriety?

    A beautifully pitched parody. One could well imagine these “restrained” answers being given whilst Garrett clearly bristled with what he trulywanted to say.

    Meanwhile DPF notes that Blaise Drinkwater notes Antonin Scalia’s comment on the Bill of Rights: that some rights are important and some aren’t (!!) but that “they were selected on the basis of, “what rights would a tyrant want to move against?'”.

    Given Garrett and the SST want to dilute or dispose of rights protected in the US, from double jeopardy and silence to protection from “cruel and unusual punishment” – and given that National seem unconcerned about the impact of letting them have their way – then I wonder how Key takes to being described as a tyrant by a notoriously conservative US Justice? 😈

    Are white people still exempt?

    I’ld really like someone to clarify the SST & ACT on when white/Asian people kill it doesn’t hurt so should get a medal?

    [lprent: Just been looking at your comments. You look like a troll in your various guises. Adding you to auto-moderation because you also look like someone we have banned]

    • Whacky Lefty 10.1

      To clarify, it’s troll like to ask questions of the seeming racial imbalance of causes the SST & ACT champion or dismiss?

      Well I say no it isn’t. It is a serious question worthy of consideration. (Possibly not express well in the first instance).

      A brown boy is stabbed to death by a white male and Garth calls for Home detention (& I seem to hear others call for a medal for him).

      I’m not against Home Detention, infact probbly a very good sentence as I don’t suspect he is generally a danger to other and with suitable programmes will rehabilitate well back into society. The support of a family is a positive factor in this.

      This should also be open to the majority of prisoners behind bars today.

      I await your apology in regards to your slur upon my person.

      [lprent: Sure looks like trollish to me. Specifically a wingnut trying to look like a moonbat]

    I put this just on my blog recently – which is a good place for things I don’t want people to see – but I thought you might appreciate it:

    Separated at birth?

  12. mike 12

    Hey – this is geat – finally a sensible person in government.

    He should be prime minister.

  13. toad 13

    Ah Lyndon, brilliant!

    Not only does he look like Powell, but like Mosely as well.

    An extraordianry coincidence, Sorry, but don’t think we can find the Franco or Hitler or Mussolini likenesses to Garrett anywhere though.

    But if the cap fits…

  14. BLiP 14

    I reckon he most closely resembles Alf Garnett – showing my age, I guess.

    i used ta have a teacher with your name haha
