Radio NZ enables Hone to reach a much bigger audience than the one he reached in Helensville

Radio NZ’s leftie leanings were on view – or rather, plainly heard – on Morning Report this morning.

That’s Alf’s judgement, anyway, and he will be sharing it with his mates at the Eketahuna Club tonight. He expects none will challenge this view, especially after he has offered to pay for the first three rounds.

In one item the Morning Report team was exposing us to the grizzles of Opposition politicians who were reported to be complaining that last night’s candidates’ meeting in the Prime Minister’s electorate of Helensville had been stacked against them.

Another item had Key’s opponents complaining that he broke the rules during the meeting.

Opposition politicians said Mr Key should have been ejected for bringing other parties and candidates into his answers – a direct violation of the rules.

Hone Harawira, an indigenous gentleman who heads a mob called the Mana Party, later grumbled that Key had got away with more than the others had got away with.

Morning Report put things right for him.

Better than competing with other candidates to win over the audience in a Helensville hall, he was given almost three minutes of air time to blat to a national radio audience about how the meeting had been run.

Wonder what the other politicians at the meeting thought (although Alf must confess to being utterly indifferent in most cases, especially the case of the chronically stroppy Penny Bright).

Radio NZ, alas, did not provide an answer by recording what these others had to say about the meeting. If they did record it, they did not broadcast it.

    NZ now has only one “major” party – National. A party on 22% or 25% like Labour is nothing but yet another minor party.

    The real lefty bias of the MSM is seen how Labour is still included in all the debate – and most of all in how the MSM behaves as if an outcome in which the clear choice of more than half of NZ’s population, and the overwhelming choice of both taxpayers and businesses – could somehow be overthrown by a coalition of indigent antisemitic losers.

    If NZs political parties were held to the same standards as Fiji’s parties, there would only be one party in NZ – National.

    Alf, you are BRIBING those mates at the Club!

    • Alf Grumble says:

      Bribe? Perhaps. But Alf’s mates won’t snitch to the authorities and neither he nor they will be putting it abroad that the wheels of democracy call for a bit of lubricating now and again, especially as Election Day draws closer.

    I won’t tell anyone either.
