Brownlee’s apalling gaffe requires a full apology. He has not only needlessly insulted an entire nation of people – but has brought our own country into disrepute.

Mr Brownlee is a lazy, obnoxious, narrow-minded bigot who has exhibited gross incompetance as Minister in charge of Christchurch’s re-build.

Accordingly, I have expressed my own views on Brownlee’s repulsive remarks, to the Finnish Embassy in Canberra,

Dear Sir,

It is with utmost regret that one of our elected representatives, Gerry Brownlee, has made uncalled-for derogatory remarks about your country, Finland.

Mr Brownlee is not a very cultured man, and has been elected largely on the popularity of our current Prime Minister. Many New Zealanders view him as a clown; with disdain; and he does not speak for our country.

Please accept my sincerest apology.

Regards,
– Frank Macskasy

Common Sense Prevails

Common sense – something in current short supply with National and their ‘grin & wave’  Dear Leader – finally prevails.

After wasting $16 million on the Urewera terror raids and the trial of the Urewera 18 17 4, throwing more taxpayers’ money on pointless political game-playing was something that would not sit well with a steadily discontented public.
