Nazi? Who? Annette?

Annette King whinges that smokers call her a Nazi - "What a whoose!!" chortles Joy Faulkner of Smokers of the World Unite. "Now she may have some idea of how we lowlife smokers feel as she and her ilk oust us from society like filthy lepers. And believe me as a smoker that is how I am beginning to feel," snapped Faulkner, who is also Libertarianz' Tobacco and Alcohol Deregulation Spokesman.

"If Annette actually cared to read the history of Hitler's anti-smoking campaign she would find he is the spiritual father of all this anti-smoking zealotry," points out Faulkner. The actions of Annette King, her anti-smoking predecessors, and her Ministry would not have been out of place in that earlier regime - the authoritarian tone is the same

Like Hitler and his Nazis, todays anti-smoking nazis are just as selective. Scumbag smokers are being made prohibited in stadiums, in bars and in eating establishments because - as Frau King puts it - "Those that don't smoke believe their health should not be compromised by those who pollute their environment." "What," asks Faulkner, "about the owners of these establishments? What about their property rights being compromised - nay trampled - by Frau Kings fascistic edicts? No wonder smokers are calling her a nazi!"

Let's look at the figures: approximately 900,000 New Zealander smoke. Frau King screws 2 million dollars a day out of these foul unhealthy scumbags following which her ministry is refusing to treat smokers they are sick. "What," wonders Faulkner, "is the word for that?"

"Sounds like a good loud Seig Heil wouldn't go amiss Annette," puffed Joy

Until her, her Ministry and the other anti-smoking zealots stop pouring forth propaganda and new restrictions on the smoker, then smokers will probably continue to see her and her cohorts as the Nazis they have shown themselves to beAnd don't forget who is the spiritual father of the anti-smoking hate campaign," said Faulkner.

Seig Heil Frau King

Campbell on: the local body election result in Wellington

For obvious reasons, politics is more of a big deal in the capital city than anywhere else in the country. Even so, fewer than four in ten eligible voters bothered to vote in Saturday’s local body elections in Wellington (turnout 39.66%).

Even less was felt to be at stake this time around than in 2016, when 45% of the electorate voted Justin Lester into the mayoralty.

To put it mildly, the Lester-led Council failed to live up to expectations. Lester will be remembered mainly for the fact that somehow, he managed to lose this election. . More>>
