Scott at Imperator Fish has seen the light and transcribed the Revelations of Don Brash:

1. And when Mr Key had opened the report, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2. And I saw seven of his Cabinet members which stood before him; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3. And another cabinet member (Gerry) came and stood at Mr Key’s altar, having a golden crown (thanks to the Canterbury earthquake emergency legislation); and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it to the four ACT MPs who were desperate to let rip.
4. And the smoke of the incense, which came with Gerry’s prayers, ascended up before the debating chamber.
5 And Gerry took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it down onto the floor of Parliament: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake as the four ACT MPs let go all of the hot air within them.
6. And the seven ministers which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7. The first minister sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and my report was cast upon the earth.
8 And the second minister sounded, and as it were my entire career was cast into the sea: and became nothing;
13.And I beheld, and heard a minster flying through the midst of Parliament, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the far right, we’d like to do all this but the public won’t let us!


  1. There is a small part of me that is loath to acknowledge this as ‘satire’ – I don’t know why – it’s a gut thing . . . I feel that a revisiting of ‘The book of Job’ might have worked betterer . . .’And then Hagar cast forth ‘the Book’ smiting him and declaring ‘Behold the Hollow Man that is Don – Son of Roger. We shall render him impotent as he gnashes his teeth and licks his wounds in the Chasm of Infidelity . . ‘ etc . .

  3. I thought New Zealand had already descended to the Seventh Gate of Hell under the Clark regime.

  4. Given that the false prophet Don was once the money lender of all money lenders, in this land of milk and honey, it is hardly surprising that various sycophantic scribes and Pharisees are scattering before the wrathful winds of logical reality.

    The Don promised us the promised land beyond the Tasman Sea.

    Yeah right.

    There are a few differences between Australia and New Zealand. Prophet Don appears not to have noticed.

    Crosby Textor clearly regard NZ as Tasmania’s poor cousin.

    The National Party clearly thinks we can match Australia in economic terms.

    I am not sure how many New Zealanders (apart from Don Brash, some Act supporters and perhaps a sprinkling of Liberterianz) actually think it is possible or desirable.


    A tempting electioneering slogan, propped up by a meaningless “Task Force” report.

    This government does not waste tax payers money?

    It merely redistributes it by taking it off community education, early childhood education, industry training boards and and building lots of prisons to keep Garth McVicar and ACT happy.

    This, of course, leads us to the promised land across the Tasman Sea.

    Well, I suppose there are some resemblances between John Key and John Howard.

    Our average wage is now well below Tasmania’s, I guess that’s about the same thing
