A prayer to the god of politics…

praying to the political gods

To the god of politics,

I thank thee for the incredibly shitty week you have delivered to the Tories,

I thank thee for showing my New Zealand compatriots what the Nats are really like,

I thank thee for lifting up the spirits of the Left,

And finally, I beseech thee,

Please don’t let Labour or Greens or Mana f**k it up!

Amen.

I am tempted to suggest that the pressures of Parliamentary
life has finally become too much for Judith Collins, and she
has lost the plot. How else to describe her attempted
character assassination of a TV1 reporter. But it goes far
deeper than that.

This was Collins' own nasty character coming out in a very
public way. This was a ruthless attack upon a member of the
media - an attempt to make an example of one journalist and
to send a thinly disguised message; "don't mess with me or
my National Party mates".

This is the same arrogance that landed Aaron Gilmour in hot
water last year,  and motivated Paula Bennett to release
private details of two solo-mothers back in 2009.

Whatever the reason, this should serve as a clear warning to
all journalists not to share their private details with
politicians. When politicians like Collins are backed into a
corner, they will either surrender and resign with good
grace - or, like a cornered, feral rat in a Karen Walker
suit, lash out.

September 20th can't come fast enough.
