Time to bend over again, fellow Kiwis…
Fancy a good time, handsome? *winks*
First, it began with the Wide Boys flying in from Hollywood, to read Dear Leader the proverbial Riot Act,
John Key was firm in stating; there’d be no extra deals made with Warner Bros; no extra incentives, tax breaks, sweet-heart deals; nothing.
$34 million later, Warner Bros left town.
“It was a very generous deal,” Mr Key said.
So much for “no extra deals”.
(Funny thing though. I’m no expert, but isn’t it supposed to be the other way round, if we’re going to prostitute ourselves? Aren’t they suppose to pay us?!)
The trouble with prostituting ourselves to Big Boy corporations overseas is that, eventually, we get others knocking on our doors,
Interestingly, this article cannot be found on the Fairfax website, Stuff.Co.NZ. Almost as it… someone didn’t want our Chinese cuzzies from seeing it online?!
But yet again, we’re seeing a bunch of Wide Boys ride into town. No doubt they have a “message” for Dear Leader (our Dear Leader – not the North Korean bloke) and no doubt he’ll pay careful attention to their “suggestions”; take notes; and smile benignly at them.
After which, this blogger expects the Crafar Farm sale to go though unimpeded to the Shanghai Pengxin company.
And after that, expect our gambling legislation to be amended by National, to allow an extra 500 pokie machines at Sky City casino. In return for the “pay off”, a convention centre.
If anyone has ever wondered what it’s like to have your own government turn our own country into one, giant, corporate brothel, where we sell ourselves to Hollywood moguls, foreign governments, casino operators, et al – then wonder no more.
Funny thing, though…
When prostitution (or more technically, solicitation) was legalised in 2002, I never though our Prime Minister would become the Pimp Minister and sell us to the highest overseas (or local) bidder.
I think “business” is going to be brisk.
I need to buy more lube.
