Election with Selection

Phil Goff
John Key

Well, the general election is over.

It was pretty much like elections everywhere; largely a duel of wits between unarmed opponents. No answers, but lots of different names for the problems.

I therefore present a New Zealand political addendum to the fully encompassing “Religions of the world

Political party Ethos
National Shit wont happen if we sell some assets
Labour Time for capital gains tax on your shit
Greens This shit wouldn’t happen if we had a carbon tax.
NZ First You deal with the shit. I have an expenses claim to file.
ACT (Don Brash) Let’s smoke some shit.
ACT (Everyone else) How much longer do I have to keep paying for this shit?
Maori The treaty says you have to pay for all the shit
Mana “I’m the only one who acted like a statesman in there” shit.

…all we REALLY want is a hung parliament. wink

    Addendum: Seen in this week’s “Weekend Sun”

    Ineptocracy: [in-ep-toc-ra-cy]
    A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing; and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
