    Mr Peter Dung
    Minister of Bums on Seats

    Wellington

    Dear Mr Dung

    Your application for a special dispensation to prevent a citizen of New Zealand from freely smoking whatever substances he wants to smoke in his own home has been DECLINED for the following reasons:

    1) Not enough detail.
    2) Everyone thinks your bow ties are ridiculous.
    3) YOU work for US, not the other way around.
    4) Please just get out of our lives you pompous, self-absorbed, utter utter git.

    If you would like to appeal this decision you have one (1) working day to do so.

    You may submit a new application to prevent the same citizen from smoking whatever the fuck he wants, but a mandatory 10-year stand-down period applies, beginning from the date of this letter.

    Regards;

    The citizens and taxpayers of New Zealand

    How cynical is it though?
    The news media were interviewing people at the TPPA protest in Akl who couldn't actually say what the TPPA was or why they were against it.
    But somehow they "knew" it had something to do with the rich getting richer and John Key was behind it all, and John Key's let us down, and John Key John Key John Key...

    "Deranged" seems about right!

    I'm sorry if the term irritates you!

    If I was put in charge it would be "haters gonna hate syndrome", but that's not original either...

    This isn't a new thing devised at ducking for cover over the unpopularity of the flag referendum!

    We on the right have been observing "Key Derangement Syndrome" for years, and have been calling it by that name for almost as many years.

    It started in 2008 when we noticed Labour Party President Mike Williams attempted to smear Key as a fraudster, and even flew to Melbourne in a (failed!) attempt to dig up evidence to support the smear.
