Opposing Stronger Dog Controls is Barking Mad, ARF


Opposing Stronger Dog Controls is Barking Mad, ARF!!!

"Belladonna Aoukatere-Ropata is being chased through the corridors of Parliament by a horde of demented lunatic canines, and it has to stop. Moreover, the Top Dog of ARF is quaking at the possibility of legislation because he wants to be free to run amok, savaging public sector organisations and people on benefits. I ask you, why does Wellington have such stringent inner-city dog control laws, and why does Auckland seem to be pestered by out of control mad dogs?" Tripitaka Adelie-Penguin said today, relieved that her party had finally put all accusations about corn chips, ch*c*l*t* addiction and errant SM nuns behind it.

"The Corrective Party supports strong limits on mad dogs. The Association of Rottweilers and Fangbearers should come out of the kennel and admit that its membership is of the crazed canine persuasion, and should submit to muzzling. Weren't the eighties enough for most people??" Ms. Adelie-Penguin said that she would continue to speak out against "certain barking mad" tendencies in New Zealand society and had given Ms. Aoukatere-Ropata a list of dog control agencies if she had further probbos with Mad Auckland Prebbos.

Gordon Campbell: On Defence Spending, Alabama, And Dolly Parton

The spending lavished on Defence projects to meet the risks that could maybe, possibly, theoretically face New Zealand in future is breath-taking, given how successive governments have been reluctant to spend even a fraction of those amounts on the nation’s actual social needs. More>>
