The Politically Incorrect Show - 01/02/2000
[Music - Die Fledermaus]
Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Tuesday February 1, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd, the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit, & excellence, against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.
[Music up, music down!]
Last evening it was reported that Commissar Clark was being described by members of her own caucus as a "control freak" for the way she was clamping down on public comment on who should & shouldn't go to Waitangi on our National Day of Hocus-Pocus. Of course the Prime Minister is a control freak! So, it is safe to assume, is virtually every other politician in Parliament. It is control-freakery that drives them to it! Politicians, by & large are second-handers, devoid of authentic individuality or self-esteem, who get their kicks from bossing about those not similarly bereft.
One of their major tools in this country is radio & television. Strictly speaking, politicians have no more business running radio or television stations than they do running newspapers (though it would be no surprise to see THIS government set up its own equivalent of Pravda quite soon, even though the behaviour of the Herald would make such an organ superfluous), but they do it anyway - They run National Socialist Radio & they run Television New Zealand, &, by Stalin, they're not about to let go. But just how control-freakish are they prepared to be?
"January 31, 2000. Government to develop new charter for TVNZ. Prime Minister Helen Clark and Minister of Broadcasting and Minister in Charge of Television New Zealand Marian Hobbs, said today that the Government had decided not to approve the joint venture proposal for Television New Zealand to set up a digital television service. Helen Clark and Marian Hobbs said that the Cabinet today spent a considerable time discussing the issues involved. 'The Cabinet's view was that it is necessary for the government to establish a wider public policy framework within which to consider the expansion of digital television services. It believes that there needs to be broader public policy debate about how these new services might be introduced. Agreeing to the Television New Zealand proposal now pre-empts that broader debate.'"
Translation: We control-freaks told our television minions to behave like capitalists so they could pay us lots of tax. Accordingly they did a deal with some real capitalists overseas to upgrade their technology. We control freaks now fear the huge number of extra viewing choices this would offer would undermine our ability to keep the sheeple reliant on us - we want them to watch OUR channels after all - so we're putting the deal on hold while our supporters in the media & arts world like Dr Brayin Oddwords tell the public how bad it would be.
"This government wants to establish a charter for Television New Zealand which brings public interest objectives for its development to the fore. Ministers wish to see Television New Zealand offering more programming reflecting New Zealand perspectives, culture and identity."
Translation: this government wants TVNZ to generate even more politically correct crapulence than it does already & to be even more blatantly pro-Labour than it is now.
There is a burgeoning private sector here already, upgrading its technology by the day - Sky Television, internet service providers & Uncle Tom Cobley & all. They will be giving us more of those nifty black boxes with their squillions of channels & leave Television New Zealand a vast, expensive museum piece if it is not allowed to do what it is proposing to do & compete. The control freaks are caught in a bind. They can't sell TVNZ, because the sheeple would baaa too loudly & go & do poos on the Beehive lawn. What WILL they do after the likes of Oddwords have pontificated in the name of "public debate"? Close down the privates & make it compulsory to watch state television? Should we go back to black & white at the same time? Or just various shades of red?!
