What can I say? Shattered by the prospect of a right wing government ….at least the U S of A that we’ll cosy up to is left leaning now.
Time to get out the combat gear again I guess. Oh that’s so scary. Everything that has been gained in the last 9 years will be dismantled. Roger Douglas aaaaargh back to haunt us. Maybe it’s time to emigrate.
Goodbye Helen and thanks heaps.
I was going to write about a great party where there were lots of cripples dancing, including me, and I thought I had a great shot of dancing cripples but ah well this is the best I got. There was great (live and real ) music too AND I was the sober driver. But I’m too depressed now.
The next day after a time in the garden pulling weeds: OK While Helen Black recommends Steve Braunias’ scathing article in the SStimes, (i.e. so who is he really?) I have to say that I favour Chris Trotter, The night MMP couldn’t save us from ourselves.
“You can read it on the pages of the right wing media: the smug certainties of our genteel suburban fascisti – regurgitated to order by publications long used to dripping the oleaginous phraseology of ‘responsible journalism’ all over the jagged edges of their readers’ class advantage”.
A man with the skill to write a sentence like that deserves a medal!
At the end of the day: I guess I can live with this. Have before……just have to grit teeth a lot.
