That's classic. I remember the referendum happening, but nothing beyond that. At the time, none of my family were yet Australian citizens and couldn't vote, so it was only a minor issue to us.

My favourite from the last election was Ivan Milat's sister-in-law standing for election with policies including one that rifle owners should not require licences.

Apparently Helen Clark's 757s have acquired the nicknames Broomstick One and Broomstick Two.

Oh, and this cracked me up:

A potato famine: Prime Minister Jim Bolger's somewhat pock-marked countenance bore an unfortunate resemblance to the common garden potato. Much to his displeasure, he became widely known as "Spud"; the Royal New Zealand Air Force, with a typically Kiwi lack of reverence, christened his Boeing 727 "Spud One".
Exactly, sanity needs all the help it can get this time around. Psst, John Key. You don't decide to abolish a $700 million fund to help agriculture just because you want to differentiate your policies from Labour, nor to keep that money in hand for tax cuts, you cunt (sorry anyone offended, i was just enjoying the alliteration).

I love the potato one.

Even better, I wonder what they called Howard's.

Key's a twit. I really need to keep up with Kiwi politics more though, since I'm rather out of touch. I can't believe a National victory is looking like a foregone conclusion. It makes me rather sad, really.

I love how quickly Howard has faded into complete irrelevance, by the way.

Hopefully he keeps fucking up and people will realise it's better to go with the devil you know.

Any National win is going to be a win for greed - greed which won't be rewarded for a huge majority of the population who will never see a tax cut from any National Government.

But this is depressing me.

Y'know, we need more trial by combat.

Quote:
An Unusual Trial By Combat

In 1380, a trial by combat was said to have been fought in France between a man and a dog. The dog’s master, Montdidier, had been murdered by the Chevalier Maquer. Maquer buried the body and departed. The dog, masterless and hungry, journeyed to Paris and sought out the Chevalier Ardilliers, a friend of his master Montdidier, and led him back to his master’s grave. This loyal dog scratched the dirt covering the grave until Ardilliers dug up the corpse of Montdidier. Later the dog spied Maquer, his master’s killer, and attacked him viciously. The dog renewed his attacks at each encounter with Maquer, soon arousing suspicion since heretofore his nature had been gentle. Friends recalled that Maquer had shown hostility to Montdidier, and reported this situation to the king. The king ordered trial by combat between Maquer and the dog to uncover Maquer’s guilt or innocence.

At combat, Maquer was unable to contain the frenzied attack of the dog, who focused on Maquer’s throat. Maquer, undone by the dog’s fervor and tenacity, confessed to his crime and was duly hanged.

Who?

Last I heard he was making a fool of himself in America (which is pretty hard to do, but he managed).

... not to mention forcing some of the most wooden, poorly acted ads on the rest of the country too! Holy shit, that mob's nuts. I'm still embarrassed that their Senate seat is a Victorian one. Oh well, at least they won't regain it.
