Et tu, NZ?

Saturday, September 23, 2006
Samizdata reports:
Having misappropriated taxpayer money and facing a lawsuit, the New Zealand government now wants to ram through legislation validating their thievery. To divert attention, they threatened to dish the dirt on opposition MPs, resulting in the exposure of an affair by the opposition leader. The dirt has come right back at them, however, with allegations that the PM's husband is gay and that her marriage is one of convenience. Entering into the equation, also, are Exclusive Brethren who may have been snooping on the Prime Minister and tales of the government hiring private investigators to snoop on the opposition.

Sounds like great fun for the spectators. Sounds like New Jersey. And maybe NZ will join the slow turn of the great ship Anglosphere towards its Liberal harbor.

Not likely--the opposition is ineffectual and Labour has built up a huge constituency of welfare beneficiaries. They simply bribe the voters.

Exclusive Brethren?

Anyway, I blame it all on the accent; drives people batty.
