Hot off the Press - an in no way endorsing advertorial of a certain politician is published during the 2014 Election Campaign season... coincidental?
Maybe, but as well as the story inside, Rugby News Magazine has a picture on the cover of an All Black jersey posing and apparent "Pack Leader" - "John Key - #1 All Blacks Supporter".
This weekly published Rugby news magazine is full of relevant news and articles to do with our National Sport... or is that now National Support?
Did the Editor stop for a second to think that splattering this impostor on the cover wouldn't be viewed as political?
The NZ Rugby Union certainly did, as they requested that a small disclaimer be added in the magazine that Mr Key leading the pack wearing an All Blacks jersey was not an endorsement - it was photoshopped.
Then soon after the launch of the issue, the Rugby News Editor felt it necessary to justify his reasons/excuses as to why he put the PM on the cover. But he shouldn't be surprised about all the adverse reactions to the publication - it's all part of the game of political opinions!
Disclaimer: My version of the cover definitely isn't an endorsement of Mr Key leading the pack wearing an All Reds Jersey - it was photoshopped too.
PS: I tried Blue Jerseys but they sucked!
John Key continues to drag New Zealand on the path to "A Brighter Future". Yeah Right! It's not the kind of future I want. His future is one under the control of "The Ultimate Evil" - whose orders JK follows enthusiastically, like the good little Poodle he is. Who "THe Ultimate Evil" is, is another story.
But one piece of supporting evidence for this is that he has been getting pretty cozy with the U.S. President as of late. I mean what is your real business over there JK when you're visiting Mr. Obama at the White House and playing golfing buddies?
It's rather embarrassing watching you kiss up to a warmongering, financially destitute country like the US. But So as usual you will keep your real business a secret and we will find out when it's too late... right? Same old story.
But there may be some good news - the Yanks are allowing our Navy boys to now dock our ships with the rest of the recent War Games players in Honolulu and that means we may no longer be little outcasts!... but you won't see me cheering.
If you remember (not bloody likely) back in 1984 New Zealand barred all Nuclear Powered and Nuclear Armed Ships from entering our waters including those types of ships from the United States. Yes, New Zealand declared itself a Nuclear-Free Zone and that is what we will always cheer for! The pathway to peace.
But we are being dragged along your path Jk and when the time comes it will be interesting to see how you show Mr. Obama your appreciation. Will you let their Nuclear Warships back in?
It won't really surprise me if you attempt this soon. But not before the election aye JK?
So try to remember this Prime Minister of "Brain Fades", New Zealand has a right to determine its own future, so stop shoveling us yours.
My partner and I like to share the good news. Your comments are welcome.
