Foot in Mouth award – another former ACT MP plumbs new depths of dumbness

Foot In Mouth Award

.

This Award is for a comment has has to be heard to be believed. It must rank as truly one of the dumbest things a politician (or former politician, in this case) has ever uttered in the entire million-year long history of Homo Sapiens.

The Award goes to former ACT MP, Heather Roy, for stating – with a straight face and without a hint of irony;

"Nuclear war is not the end of the world."

“Nuclear war is not the end of the world.”Heather Roy, Q+A Panel, 22 May 2016

.

I kid you not.

Check it out for yourself on TVNZ’s website, here. The relevant comment is at 6.04;

“Nuclear war is not the end of the world.”

And Righties call us the “looney left”?!

I guess in a way, Ms Roy is correct; “Nuclear war is not the end of the world” – if you’re a cockroach. It’s more like an opportunity.

An opportunity to snack on 7.5 billion human charred corpses amidst the ruins of what was once a civilisation on planet Earth.

Absolutely. Barking. Mad.

The majority of sensible, clear-headed New Zealanders are clearly opposed to  any further extension of the power of the State to spy over all of us;

But there are a few, as evidenced by a handful of comments on various fora, who seem to be “relaxed” with the growth of the Surveillance State. They seem to be unconcerned that state apparatus  can violate our privacy at will, without just cause, and with minimal checks and balances.

In support of the GCSB Bill

If you aint got anything to hide why should you worry???” – says “Niggly”.

Which is an interesting statement to make since all five supporters of the GCSB Bill (including “Niggly”) are using pseudonyms.

What have they got to hide, I wonder?

It seems fairly clear that supporters of the GCSB Bill are not so keen to abandon their privacy after all. Or, perhaps, being National Party supporters, they believe that Dear Leader Key will be Prime Minister forever, and “their man” would never spy on his loyal supporters.

The word deluded springs to mind.
