Forget about that freedom of speech stuff – Fox (Derek) thinks French editor got his just deserts

A fit punishment for bigots, in Derek Fox's justice system.

A fit punishment for bigots, in Derek Fox’s justice system.

Alf makes no secret of his belief we should bring back the hangman (or hangwoman in these enlightened times) to rid the planet of some more heinous criminals.

He is all for corporal punishment in schools, to discipline brats who need a good walloping, and he was right behind Crusher when it came to dealing with boy racers.

But the death sentence for cartoonists and satirists…

No-one – surely – believes making people laugh should be a capital offence.

Alf certainly doesn’t.

But he has found someone who does.

If Hone is serious about what he says about Osama, we must suppose he would have paid tribute to Adolf too

May 5, 2011

So what tribute would Hone have paid at this feller's funeral?


Dunno what planet Hone Harawira is inhabiting these days.

He was away out of line in labelling Don Brash a racist

Brash’s concern essentially is that the Maori Party – and Hone’s new party – want to create a privileged group of New Zealanders.

“I want all New Zealanders to have exactly the same rights under the law. He [Hone] wants to give a preference to Maori.”

Today Alf has read that the stroppy Mana Party leader is describing Osama bin Laden as “a man who fought for the rights, the land and the freedom of his people”.

Well, not exactly.

Osama wanted to deprive a lot of people of their rights by subjugating them to Sharia law.

And what people, pray, was he fighting for?

Not the ones who are fighting and giving their own lives – not someone else’s – for democracy in countries like Libya, Syria, Yemen and Egypt.

Our leaders are putting a safety spin on Bin Laden’s demise, but terrorists will be seeking revenge

May 3, 2011

It looks like the Government has found a way of saving public money – by sharing spin doctors with Labour.

The evidence for this is to be found in reactions to news that Osama Bin Laden had been bumped off by the Yanks and tossed into the ocean.

A press release from the Labour Party, in the names of Phil Goff and Maryan Street, welcomed confirmation from US President Barack Obama that American forces have killed the terrorist Osama bin Laden during a raid in Pakistan.

“The world is a better and safer place now Osama bin Laden is gone,” said Phil Goff.

“Osama bin Laden is the mastermind behind numerous terrorist attacks carried out around the world. He is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people. He founded the jihadist terrorist organisation al-Qaeda and has committed his life to spreading its deadly tentacles across the globe. His death will be a major blow to that organisation and that is something that we should welcome.”

Alf went to the Beehive website to find what The Boss had said on the matter.

How long would you wait to find if these boxes aren’t a passport to Paradise and 70 virgins?

December 13, 2010

It turns out they contain Biblical verses, not explosives.

Joris de Bres has demonstrated yet again why he and his job should be abolished.

He is saying the crew of an inter-island ferry over-reacted when they spotted a fellow strapping strange-looking boxes to his body.

Over-reacted be buggered.

The crew quite appropriately alerted the cops and kept a close eye on the suspicious-looking character, and a full-scale alert was mounted.

This was a helluva lot less extreme than Alf’s response would have been if he had been the captain.
