Key Supporting Warriors

Since it's the weekend, I just thought I'd post a scan of this picture that was in some advertising literature that came through the mailbox this morning of a very staunch looking John Key (together with some other famous New Zealanders) supporting the Vodafone Warriors. I wonder if Helen would have done it?

Key Warriors


  1. She prefered a good book, remember? Das Kapital for economic theory? Mein Kampf for political management?

  2. "I wonder if Helen would have done it?"Probably not but who cares? Should she have? If you're asking this question I would assume you have a bit of a chip on your shoulder. Weak, man.

  3. I'm not quite sure what the point of this post is. Helen Clark was a well known rugby league (and other sports) supporter.

    However, is league (and even the Warriors) something you really want to be associated with given the recent scandals and results?

  4. Um, Sean, this was meant to be a light-hearted post (see the 'humour' tag?). I wondered if anyone else had seen it. Lighten up, dude..

  5. Mike Graham, there has been scandal?

    I'm sorry, but I must confess right here that I don't follow sports - at all. The most important All Blacks game of the season could be on TV and I wouldn't know.

    I just posted the picture because I thought it was amusing, Key looked so staunch, and I wondered if anyone else had seen it.

    I'm not trying to make a point, political, sporting, or otherwise.

    Am I not allowed to post fun things?

  6. I enjoy a good joke, but you seemed to be making a political point by saying "I wonder if Helen would have done it?"

    Re scandal - only that rugby league players (and ex-players) seem to be in the news more because of what happens in bed rather than on the field.

  7. Fletch, you are NOT ALLOWED to joke about Dear Leader, even though she's left the room, ok?
    Neither is it acceptable to make jokes about football or whatever the Vodafone Warriors are. Because some footballers have been implicated in some dodgy sexual shenanigans. Which--naturally--means they're all guilty of it.
    Didn't you have a pic of Key looking staunch in front of a netball team or something? That would probably pass the censors.

  8. Okay so I noticed the comical mood of the flyer but I missed the auto cue to laugh at the punchline.

Sine dominico non possumus

This post was inspired by posts on TBR and A Servant's Thoughts on male vs female church attendance. ... "We Cannot Live without Sunday," takes us back to the year 304, when Emperor Diocletian prohibited Christians, under pain of death , to possess the Scriptures, to meet on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist and to build premises for their assemblies. In Abitene, a small village in what today is Tunis, 49 Christians , meeting in the home of Octavius Felix, were taken by surprise on a Sunday while celebrating the Eucharist, defying the imperial prohibitions. Arrested , they were taken to Carthage to be interrogated by the proconsul Anulinus. Significant, in particular, was the response given to the proconsul by Emeritus, after being asked why he had violated the emperor's order. He said: "Sine dominico non possumus," we cannot live without meeting on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist. We would not have the strength to face the daily difficulties and not


The University College London Union will probably never see any irony in this. The president of a London university atheist society has resigned over a row about an image of the Prophet Muhammad. The society at University College London (UCL) published an image on its Facebook page showing "Jesus and Mo" having a drink at a bar. The atheist group was asked by the UCL union to remove it, but refused and started a petition defending its freedom of expression. A student Muslim group began a counter-petition asking for its removal. The cartoon in question of course is designed to be offensive to Christians as well as Muslims. "The society was asked to remove the image because UCLU aims to foster good relations between different groups of students and create a safe environment where all students can benefit from societies regardless of their religious or other beliefs."

This will scare the liberals

Teenagers in New Zealand are conservative about sex education and abortion. How could this be? After all the sexualisation they have been exposed to, all the State endorsed sex-ed - and they're turning out to be conservative!! Oh, the horror! And David Farrar's polling company did the research. This is hope, people. The young are not lost! Teenagers conservative about sex/abortion – Poll ~ Investigate Daily
