Frontier Former Editor

Now I know what I’ve been doing during those blackouts . . .

Thanks to Vicus, I’ve discovered what I’ve been doing during those lost minutes and hours after which I wake up disoriented, naked and lying next to a dumpster. I’ve emulated Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and their rivals, but with the reverse spin that comes from pissing a stream of water south of the Equator.

From Miramar Mike 2.0:

“A mate down in Christchurch has just put me onto their very own serial election contender, a Mr Michael Hansen. He is running in all three of the elections – Mayor, Councillor and DHB.

“It seems that Mr Michael Hansen has been running for local Christchurch office positions for quite some time with such memorable party names as Nifty (2004 – Candidates for Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board), Haughty Naughty Nudist (2004 – Spreydon-Heathcote Ward for Council), Economic Euthenics Party (Christchurch Central by-election 1979)

“Of course it’s easy to laugh … that’s probably why I do.
I will say nothing about his policies, his stance on ‘rays’ and his party names … you be the judge with the following taken from the official, council printed and delivered pamphlets!”


I thoroughly agree with my somnambulistic alter ego’s stance on THRUSH, even if his ‘tingle ray’ theory is a bit daft (everyone knows tingles are caused by an imbalanace of bodily humours) and if he doesn’t realize that THRUSH is always spelled with all-capitals.

And if elected, I promise to bring David McCallum and Robert Wagner out of their respective career limbos to advise me on the best course to fight the spread of THRUSH.

And to restore the balance of bodily humours.


  1. Not wishing to set a precedent by being generous, but that photograph does not flatter you. This getting involved in politics is getting to you, old friend.

  2. The bad part is, I’d thought at first that you’d really found a recent pic of me

  3. 🙂 Unfortunately he/you didn’t make much of a difference to the Christchurch (NZ) elections this time … then again does anyone.

    the reverse spin that comes from pissing a stream of water south of the Equator – quite possibly the best summation of local politics I’ve read in a long time, in any hemisphere
