Pam Corkery for Pope


Fuck did I enjoy this story on 3News.  The journos took their revenge, of course, with 3 News saying "The Internet Mana election launch has ended in disaster," but from the viewers perspective it ended in the totally awesome spectacle of Pam Corkery giving the assembled journos a right bollocking, and accurately characterising Brook Sabin (who, despite the name, is male) as a "puffed up little shit."

This is shaping up to be the best election campaign since 1984, regardless of who wins...

About what one would expect from Corkery who is well known for her gutter language. Was it Sabin she also told to piss off?

Oh no, she told the entire lot of them to piss off - best performance by a political party's press secretary I have ever seen.

Well they are supposed to be an internet party which dont need MSM to get the message across. Yep all quite good.

What happened to the BB post where he declared jihad? Mind you that dog had it coming by the sounds of things.

The MSM asking questions of the Internet/Mana Part ? Unbelievable!
They were supposed to give them a free ride...

Being a more recent (like, last decade) immigrant, I'm not really familiar with La Corkery's history.

Has she always been like this, or has she just decided to adopt Macolm Tucker as her role model?

JS - what you saw last night was pretty much par for the course for Corkery. Gutter language and talking over people has always been her way.

Oh, that was vintage, authentic Pam, James. She's been calling a spade a fucking spade since well before Malcolm Tucker. If I/M was a normal party, you'd have to consider the decision to make Pam Corkery its press secretary completely deranged - however, given the kind of party it is, the decision looks more like inspired genius.

Brook Sabin, son of Mike Sabin, National MP for Northland?
