Labour stalwart, John Langdon, wrote to the Herald a week or so ago. His issue? TVNZ apparently considering reducing the programming of Coronation Street down to just one night per week.
However, it wasn't this that caught my eye, rather it was whose fault it was. Yep. John Key. You see Key is PM, and TVNZ is owned by Jonathan Coleman and Bill English, so if TVNZ cut Coro Street back it would be National's fault and, here's the main point made by Langdon, Key deserved to be booted out of office as a result.
There's nothing like Labour's prioirities to remind us why they were booted out of office last year.
In today's HoS, a Barry Morgan of Manukau (no apparent evidence on being a Labour apparatchik) writes on taxes. He opines:
Why don't the middle and upper class people like paying taxes?...Langdon thinks our number one priority is Coronation Street and Morgan thinks it's preventing military invasion resulting from "global warming"
When it comes to...(climatic adversity) they simply don't want to pay any taxes towards helping out...
Only tax increases will save our great-grandchildren. Tax increases to put us on a "war footing" against the ravages of global warming, and its consequences...
New Zealand and Australia need to at least double our armed forces and military capabilities to combat any invasion that will eventuate from the blobal warming crisis, should the current initiatives fail. It's simply that urgent.
Where's the invasion gonna come from? Tuvalu? Which has a population of ~12,000.00?
Now, some may think getting my jollies reading letters to the editor is a little odd, but at least I don't spend my holidays reading BSA decisions!!!.
