You would think Holden’s zeal for new flag would have flagged, after his referendum flop

February 6, 2013

Flag campaigner Lewis Holden has unfurled another load of old flannel today.

On the one hand, he says New Zealanders are adopting the Silver Fern as the national flag because they identify with it more than the Southern Cross.

But in the next breath, he says it’s important that we talk about this on our national holiday.

If we have already adopted it (as he claims), what’s there to talk about?

Republican ruffians don’t need to be interviewed to tell the cops they are trouble-makers

October 28, 2012

Gotta say Alf was becoming a bit hot and bothered about the cops, and the courts, after a special police unit’s botching of two high-profile investigations.

The unit in question was the Organised and Financial Crime Agency and as TV3 reported (here), it is the outfit that –

* Led the troubled inquiry into internet millionaire Kim Dotcom; and

* Ran an undercover gang operation that’s been slammed by a judge.

Mind you, we should be more than a bit bothered, too, that Police Minister Anne Tolley says she has no concerns about the botched investigations.

Really?

Even when a High Court justice found an undercover operation into a gang in Nelson abused court process, with a fake warrant and false charges?

Welcome Prince William – what a shame we don’t behead anti-royalist rabble nowadays

January 17, 2010

Unabashed royalists like Alf are chuffed that Prince William arrives in New Zealand today for a three-day visit.

He will be there, enthusiastically waving his Union Jack and wearing his tie with the Queen’s face emblazoned on it, when William touches down in Auckland just after 11am.

The prince’s first task will be to visit Eden Park to see redevelopment work and be briefed on plans for next year’s Rugby World Cup.

On Monday, he will attend a wreathlaying ceremony at the National War Memorial in Wellington.

But then – if it hasn’t happened already – the poor bugger will be exposed to the repugnant antics of some of our more odious citizens.

A bunch of protesters is intending to turn up when the prince opens the Supreme Court building in Wellington tomorrow.

Alf is ashamed to say some of our members of Parliament will be among the protesters.

He yearns for the good old days – a few centuries back – when your royals could have ordered the beheading of these rabble-rousing bastards.

In this case they are left-leaning trouble-makers, so their beheadings would lift the nation’s average IQ with two swings of an axe and do good things for the gene pool.

Prince again makes a Charlie of the Republicans

April 22, 2009

Never mind that dear old Prince Charles may well have been right in saying he gets results from talking to his plants.

The sad truth is too many people have regarded him as a bit potty, for his botanical practices.

Having him as heir to the Throne accordingly has been something of a handicap for we Royalists.

Handicap or not, a poll suggests more Kiwis would prefer him as next King than a switch to Republicanism.
