The Politically Incorrect Show - 13/09/1999

Music - Die Fledermaus

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Monday September 13, 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!

The Politically Incorrect Perigo Travelling Road Show returned to Whangarei on Friday night, courtesy Adrian Chisholm's ABC - Abolish Bureaucratic Crimes. While not as boisterous or crowded as the unforgettable Pukekohe event, this was probably a more fruitful occasion. The format, as you know, is that I, as leader of the mad extremist lunatic fringe Libertarianz, am the guest speaker who holds forth after dinner on the subject of individual liberty and property rights. Before dinner representatives from the mainstream political parties get to have their say for seven minutes each on that topic. After its mauling by me in Pukekohe, the National Socialist Party boycotted Friday night's meeting, and is threatening to boycott all the other such meetings scheduled around the country before the election. So bad is their record on individual liberty & property rights it's not surprising they're too scared to show their faces; MP John Carter said in the Northern Advocate that National should have nothing to do with Adrian Chisholm's "mickey-mouse outfit." Mr Banks, current Whangarei MP, declined to defend his party's criminal record also. Well, ABC is only hundreds and hundreds of people victimised by bureaucrats; of course, National Socialists like Carter & Banks who are part of the problem aren't going to have any sympathy for them. Nonetheless, I know that some individual candidates ARE prepared to front up - and buck the instructions from National Socialist headquarters if necessary. But not the Whangarei candidate. He's set to lose the seat - and this sort of cowardly conduct should seal his doom. Let's hope. Evidently half his own party are hoping that as well!

ACT also failed to front on Friday, its assigned candidate pulling out the day before in deference to instructions that she should instead attend Muriel Newman's meeting where the guest speaker was that fellow compulsion-touter and respectability-seeking establishment lickspittle, SIR Robert Journalists-Should-Be-Registered-By-The-State Jones-Jones-Jones. So who DID front up? Well, New Zealand First were so keen they supplied two luminaries: current MP Brian Donnelly and aspiring MP Ian Walker. Much of the night's entertainment derived from the fact that the two couldn't agree on anything, but no matter: they each gave good, vigorous, intelligent accounts of themselves, as did the Labour candidate, Denise Jellicich, who ignored a terrible cold to state her party's case and the Green Party candidate, Janine McVeagh, who drove from Hokianga to be present. What was especially pleasing about the debate was that it got down to such nitty-gritties as the nature of rights. Ms Jellicich justified her party's proposed banning of logging on the West Coast by saying that trees have more rights than human beings because they have been here longer. Not a view I could concur with, but it was good to have it stated honestly. Mr Donnelly was an enthusiastic devotee of Simone d'Uptart's view that rights are just social conventions, determined by majorities. His colleague Mr Walker was betwixt and between on such matters, and got rather flummoxed, the poor dear, at one point saying that no one would get anywhere by spouting "all that freedom stuff." Ms McVeagh inadvertently endorsed the libertarian view on property rights when she said that HER land and the stream running through it had been trashed by an upstream neighbour who had dumped toxic materials into the water. The law, properly, I pointed out, should come down on him like a ton of bricks precisely because he had violated her property rights; but without formal recognition of property rights, where would she be? She nodded!

Well, this Friday it's Taupo, and Saturday it's Taumarunui. It looks like a full muster of candidates and sell-out crowds in both venues. If you're in the area, and want to hear the most lively and intelligent debates you're going to hear this election, be there!
