The Politically Incorrect Show - 28/06/1999

Music - Die Fledermaus

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Monday June 28, proudly sponsored by Tuariki Tobacco 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!

My thanks to those of you who packed the Dragon King restaurant in Whangarei to hear me speak on Friday night, & my thanks to Muriel Newman for organising it. A great time was had by all; well, nearly all. One or two ACT supporters in their inevitable suits - the ones they've been wearing to bed for the past month or so - were a little put out that I dared criticise the Compulsion-Touters, & had to be taken away by ambulance for some counselling, but most of the audience enjoyed the rough & tumble of some good, lively exchanges.

What was instructive for me was that many of the questions I fielded after the speech were precisely the sorts of questions I normally get from Alliance Retards, reinforcing what I've said about ACT from day one - it's just Nanny State in a different guise, unable to let go of the notion that it's the government's job to run our lives, that we couldn't do it without governments, & the only point at issue is just how government does it. A good example was the supporter of education vouchers. This person couldn't see, or wasn't perturbed by the fact, that vouchers are just another variant on what we have now - parents being forced to pay for the education of other people's children, with government administering the vouchers & still determining school curricula. As we were discussing last week, it's in education that the current rot begins, & its from there that we must most urgently remove Nanny State. Yes, there will be Woolworths education & Harrods education & everything in between; but a Woolworths education would still be infinitely preferable to what the state, via the Ministry of Mid-Education & the NZQA, is foisting on our children right now -just as Woolworths supermarkets are infinitely superior to any supermarket the state might set up (perish the thought).

On a personal note, it was wonderful to catch up with a couple I hadn't seen in twenty years or so - Jack & Jean Teal from our old Mario Lanza Club days in Wellington. Hale & hearty in their eighties, they, unlike yours truly, haven't changed a bit. And Jean, your home-made bread was delicious - it had all been devoured by Sunday night. Hint, hint. Then there was Muriel's mum - a real sweetie from the homeland, sounding like someone straight out of Coronation St - eeeaaaaaargh!!! Lovely to meet you, Muriel's mum! And not forgetting Hooch Helen, all the way from her mysterious hideaway. Did she dispense any of her forbidden, magic substances? Ah, that would be telling - but let me at least tease you with the thought of a restaurant full of ultra-respectable impeccably-overdressed ACT supporters high on hooch! No, it didn't happen - & it wasn't necessary. We all had a high old time anyway. To all concerned, I say again, thank you!
