    Innovative! Fantastic idea! Imagine having a group of elected people to take care of the needs of the people. Wow! Wouldn’t Bill get a big surprise!

    Great effort White Man – again!

    Pure talent! We’re going to see a lot more of this guy.

    Ha this is John Oliver quality humour. So funny but so awful …

    Does this guy have a “donate here” button?

    Well, this guy sure proves that politics doesn’t have to be dusty and dull. If only we had a public service TV channel he’d be a great contender for a commentary/political satire style show.

    Well done WMBAD. 🙂

    Why oh why oh why is the best political commentary based in comedy? Is it because we live in times so pooched, so b0rked, so utterly frelled, that all we can do is laugh?

    superb, makes me feel better already. Reminds me of watching Spitting Image to calm the frayed nerves whilst Thatcher pulled the NHS apart.

    White Man Behind A Desk was on Media Take last week. Starts at 14 mins, but the whole show is worth a watch for its look at NZ satire and news.

      Grateful to you for pointing that out, weka. The most enjoyable locally made show that I have watched on a Sunday morning in a very long time.

      • weka 10.1.1

        I thought so too. I hadn’t watched it before, and also learnt that ‘take’ is the Māori word not the English one, pronounced tah keh I think. (it means issue or subject).

        • Kiwiri 10.1.1.1

          There is good coverage in Media Take (i.e. Ta-ke) for the Waitangi Wahine exhibition (3 Apr – 17 May) that was held in conjunction with 175th anniversary of The Treaty.

          Looking forward to that exhibition touring the country next year.
