The Politically Incorrect Show - 18/06/2001

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Monday June 18, 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!]

Following on from the e-mail I read out on Friday, here's another I received over the weekend. Its subject heading was "Seething." It may help Mr Neanderton grasp why NZers working overseas aren't scrambling to return to the yoke of his bossy-boot, busy-body regime:

"Dear Sir,

"Thank you for the stand against all money- grabbing bureaucrats that continue to monopolise the use of my hard-earned money.

"I am currently working in Japan but still enjoy the attachment of NZ - I in no way intend to return there in the near future but it is an attachment nonetheless."

"I was sifting through the lack of news at and the top story claimed 1000 NZers a year were dying from obesity-related diseases - tragic! Not for the fact that people who enjoyed eating died, but because the government is going to spend money educating the common folk (!!) on what is good for them all.

"The last paragraph raised my ire - apparently Maori and Pacific Island people are over-represented in the obesity statistics, as are the poor of NZ. To me this seems to be something of a paradox - when I see images on tv about the poor in the world, they don't seem to be obese to me, in fact quite the opposite! Therefore how are NZ's poor managing to stuff themselves silly while maintaining they have no money? Would this have anything to do with too many taxes being paid by the majority being spent on the traditional ethnic fare of fast-food?

"I do not begrudge these people eating their daily bread. I do begrudge paying for it and then allowing them full medical care as well as numerous programmes for re-education without them lifting a finger.

"How have NZers descended so far that they accept these statistics and programmes as normal?

"Please continue to stick your finger down the throat of the penny-grabbing politicians."

"A supporter from afar."
