The Idiot Box

5 Nov

Cue TV (5.30 and repeated at 9.00) tonight I’m told is worth a watch and don’t forget CITY TALK tomorrow.


You ALL need to watch the interview.  Kett is trying to convince us that he isn’t going back on his election stance because the A2B money is already allocated.  He claimed ‘no council funds for A2B’ but now he is giving up his day job to organise the event.  His trip to Hobart is from $15K of Venture Southland money he suggested…hmmmmm?  Intriguing and horrifying.

I want to know if SMC and Murray Francis have asked them to do this?  It seems like they are doing SMC Events job.

Kett says he wants to hand pick a sub-committee and named Lindsay Beer, John Edminstin, Mark O’Connor and Rex Capil.  While I am infuriated, it is going to be interesting to follow.

    After watching that interview one can only assume that Shadbolt and King have successfully brainwashed Kett with a load of bullshit. Some of the information which Kett came out with is complete and utter nonsense as a lot of us can confirm so it’s not difficult to work out why Kett was selected to be the Chair of the Events Committee – the most impressionable of all who are sitting around the Council table. My God it’s a frightening thought as to what else he can be conned into doing.

    its amazing how fast someone can sell their soul but not surprising. But we the voters deserve it don’t we. Like the people of Hobart will give a monkies about some hill billies from Invercargill when they are in the middle of their celebrations.
    But at least we have a worthy person for army duty. Gunner Kett. Gunna do this and gunna do that but never more than a gunna.

      Welcome back and well said. You have returned to what seems like chaos. So much going on that our heads are spinning!

        Its only chaos while they scramble to sort out who gets what and how they can squeeze blood out of a stone. Once they have settled down it will be same old same old with the odd burst of energy.

Got something to say?
