Lady Thatchula Comes Out Of The Coffin!!!

Correctives: Lady Thatchula Comes Out Of The Coffin!!!

"The Selfservative Party is to be applauded for giving the undead a place in politics!!!" enthused Sister Pontificata of the Stupendous Genuflection today when the Correctives noted the appearance of Lady Thatchula at a fund-raiser for the political party in question.

"It took real guts to stand up and admit that she is really undead and has returned, like the Mummy she is, to gain support for the cause she believes in- the right to wander around and cause havoc and total destruction in your path!!!" commented Sister Pontificata.

"The British Selfservatives have come out of the Common and realised that the undead are human beings too. They have a genetic code, and some of them still have recognisable human features."

Sister Pontificata dismissed media rumours that several virgin benefit claimants had been sacrificed to Lady Thatchula before she appeared at the conference: "The undead have a right to life too, even if they are dependent on others. Do we cull vampire bats? Do we weed out carnivorous plants? No- but they live off others too!!!"

The Good Sister dismissed charges that there was a religious bias to their policy on zombie undead corpses who rise from the grave to raven and slay at night: "It is completely irrelevant that there are voudoun religious beliefs that just happen to parallel ethical and philosophical arguments. The Correctives will continue to provide a voice for the voiceless- it's not their fault their vocal chords have atrophied that much!!!" burbled the Corrective Party spokes-entity.

Gordon Campbell: On Bridges’ ‘Meth Crooks’ Leadership Failure

Back in June, Bridges publicly accepted that Housing NZ had got it wrong, and that the National government had acted upon bad advice.

Now, you’d think this admission would create a broad bi-partisan basis for compensation to those families who had been unfairly evicted, at considerable cost and emotional distress. Some people had lost their possessions in trying to meet the expense of the upheaval.

Not everyone felt so compassionate. More>>
