McGillicuddy Serious Party List Announced

Press Release
Saturday November 6 1999

The McGillicuddy Serious Party released it's party list the other day, and has seen fit to make public announcement. Party Secretary Bernard Smith has expressed great pleasure in the team the selection committee has got together. "We are delighted that as New Zealand's third oldest party, and the most consistent in policy since it's inception, we have also managed to get together New Zealand's largest party list, weighing in at a grand 73 candidates.

We are not only delighted with the size of the team, but the calibre, and are confident that we can bring this country to rights within the short space of time left to do so. We not only can boast the highest levels of gardeners and farmers of all parties, but are confident that the added numbers of pixies, wizards and witches, lay scientists, librarians and ark builders will be more than enough to save anyone who wants to stay on board when New Zealand as a country does what needs to be done, and wipes off the yolk of progress that we have been wearing on our faces for so long

Since no other party appears to have so long a range vision as us, we are certain that this election will be a doodle, with the understanding that voters really do know just how drastically bad things really are.

The McGillicuddy Serious Party believes that with policies such as reducing hospital to zero, whilst maintaining a funding policy of user prays, voters can't go wrong, and government will end up where it belongs; far removed from peoples lives. The TAB couldn't pick a better winner.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politics Of Using The Word “Fascist”
