PHEW, THAT WAS LUCKY!

 

Campbell Live is not on the viewing list  a ramble through my much loved "middle South Island" landscape sans sound last night was captured by swmbo surfing and struck the Little Creep's efforts to make capital from the "mazda tour".
Tonight, seeking more views of magnificent landscapes,  I caught the interview by JC with the Prime Minister John Key on what Campbell sees as the massive GCSB affront to Joe and Josephine Citizen.

Words such as a slaughter, a rout, a knockout in round s 1234and 5, take your pick.

Helen Clark's little weasel was handed his arse in spades time and time again.

The only respite from  the Prime Minister's enveloping and annihilating attack came when the defeated body language of TLC managed a slight recovery along with a wan smirk when first Sir Bruce Ferguson, Air Marshall retd, late head of the later declared illegal opps of the GCSB acting under the flawed act passed by the Clark Government in 2002 then followed by arch trougher ex PM and "constitutional lawyer", Sir Geoffrey Palmer waded in with their irrelevant and overtaken vacuous protestations, strewn with liberal untruths and falsehoods.

John key's unrelenting destruction of every plank in Campbell's totally ill informed platform had the oh so cool prick squirming so much the camera stayed on Mr Key for extraordinary time spans.

At the program end swmbo who is an astute judge of people and pretty take it or leave it over the machinations of current affairs, commented on the rather shell shocked demeanor of the host of TV3's flagship to which I suggested he possibly felt a bit like Shane Cameron felt after he hit the wall with David Tua.

Sledge of the program came in response to Campbell's pathetic claim that Mr Key had not fronted on his tawdrey little self importent excuse for a current affairs show, when Key responded with a laconic "I am a bit busy running the country John".

Lucky for Campbell, had it been in the Colosseum the Emperor would have given the thumbs down and his weedy carcass would have left feet first.

Yes. For once it was mighty fine infotainment.

Never, in thee history of television has there been such an exquisite example of 'class versus arse.'

ROFL. The PM was embarrassing. He claims he's too busy out spinning rubbish to losers like you at retirement villages to show up at the legislature and defend his own legislation and you think that's a win? Why are tories so pathetic?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Ed the Con, are you Sludge in drag?

Confuser you are a complete idiot.
Darling of your socialist masters, one Brian Edwards, himself not without credentials as a TV interviewer, was in his words on Twitter, admitting "The Little Creep", the designation delivered on Campbell by none other than Helen Clark, was EMBARASSING.

I do not have a nasal clamp to allow a visit to Prentice's little sewer settling pond for their reaction but everywhere else I have looked Campbell has been pilloried.

Your continued use of the long redundant term Tory that ceased to be used over 150 years ago with the last of them dead over a century ago, illuminates the total vacuum in your cranial cavity and just gives all a measure of the vacuity of your intellect.
On the other hand socialist, communist, fraud, false prophet, idiot, numpty, thicko are all still relevant in language today and you can be living evidence of any or all.
Oh I missed out tosser.

More like "I prefer to appear on non-political, low-brow shows where they won't ask me awkward questions."

As to what to think of his GCSB legislation, who to believe? The guy who's overseen a string of disasters in the relevant ministry and is proven to have no interest in protecting people's privacy, or the Law Commission? Gee, that's a tough one...

Edward the Confessor said...

You don't have to believe anyone as a tory, Milt. all you need to do is not engage at all in the debate or look at the issues, but squawk like a drunk hyena when you see the tory alpha male on the tele, right fellas?

Psycho Milt said...

Ahem - that was Gravedodger complaining about you calling people Tories. I look on Key much more as a Dilbert-style corporate weasel than a Tory. I just watched a few minutes of that Campbell Live interview and Key does show an ability to come up with complete bollocks that's nevertheless plausible-sounding enough to fool the simple-minded or the openly partisan. It is impressive in a way, just not in a good way.

gravedodger said...

Not knowing which "few minutes" you watched Milt but the dissembling of the news maker as he squirmed like Napoleon at Waterloo with the well publicised affliction some suggest was the kernal that defeated him, Key systematically destroyed Campbell to the point where my almost apolitical life partner was moved to say "that was brutal", was in my world, telling indeed.

Psycho Milt said...

I got to about 8 minutes in before I lost patience with Key's weaseling.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Milt, you're trying too hard!

Your rodent friend did not share your privilege of tuning out after eight minutes, much as he wanted to.

It's the first time I have seen an interviewer face palming himself while his quest is speaking.

Shane Ponting said...

Milt we're on the same page with this matter.

I can't last as long as you with respect to Key's weaseling - it's gotten so tiring I give about a minute whenever I'm confronted with it in media then abandon ship!
