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.
