Don Brash—A Time for Choice

[Don Brash's keynote address at ACT Regional Conference, August 14, 2011]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

On November 26 this year, New Zealanders face a choice.

That choice is often couched as “left” or “right.”

The ACT Party and I are often portrayed, by those who don't like us, as "far right."

Allegedly, we'd find Attila the Hun collegial company.

This of course is a shabby smear of a party that stands for individual freedom, by those who don't.

Lord Monckton on TV3

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2011-08-05 22:20

Lord Monckton, debunker extraordinaire of man-made global warming bullshit, is about to appear on TV3's The Nation. This, after the state broadcaster withdrew its invitations to him to appear on Q&A and Close-Up.

If you miss it this morning I believe The Nation is replayed at 8.30 tomorrow morning.

I did not write this, and I don't know who did. It came into my Inbox this morning. I imagine it to be inspired by recent legislation governing financial advisors. No comment from me necessary:

“I’d like to buy a pair of black leather shoes, please.”

“Sir, if it were only that simple. Here’s my card and here’s your Buyer’s Guide.”


Infantilism [reprised and revised]

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2011-05-28 10:27

I have come to the conclusion that a significant generic obstacle in our path is: infantilism.

I have reached this conclusion through pursuing my latter-day campaign against the abominable decline in speech standards whereby two thirds of the population now speak in the manner of retarded children, including in those vocations such as teacher, television reporter and flight attendant for which it used to be a prerequisite to be well-spoken.

Dear SOLOists,

Those of you who've followed my Stratos TV programme Perigo! will have absorbed that it wasn't on in its regular slot last Thursday, and that we somewhat abruptly announced the Mad Butcher interview as being the last of the first series. The reason is that I have signed on with the Don Brash-led Act Party, as Press Secretary to its parliamentary leader John Boscawen, until the election. This will keep me off the streets and TV screens till November.

This is the amazing Nathan Lewis, son of NZ tennis ace Chris Lewis, now resident in California. Nathan had not yet been born, though he was on his way, when I first became friends with Chris and his wife Cindy in 1993. Just look at him now!

Good evening and welcome to Perigo! I'm Lindsay Perigo and I'm dangerous. "Perigo" is Portuguese for "danger" and I seek to be that to the enemies of reason, freedom and excellence who rule the world in some shape or form.

One such form is eco-fascism: the filth who would bestow rights on weeds, rocks and puddles and deny them to humans.

Good evening and welcome to Perigo! I'm Lindsay Perigo and I'm dangerous. Perigo is Portuguese for danger and I seek to be that to the enemies of reason, freedom and excellence who rule the world in some shape or form.

In a recent Peritorial I called President Obama a "socialist" and an "evil bastard." The terms are more or less synonymous in my lexicon, of course, but this was said before Obama took out Osama, which might have caused me to qualify that comment, marginally.

Good evening and welcome to Perigo! I'm Lindsay Perigo and I'm dangerous. "Perigo" is Portuguese for "danger" and I seek to be that to the enemies of reason, freedom and excellence who rule the world in some shape or form.

There's a movie causing a bit of a stir in America right now. It's about what happens when the personifications of reason, freedom and excellence go on strike. Fed up with being persecuted and despised while carrying the world on their shoulders, they disappear to a secret safe haven where those who spit upon them while living off the wealth they create cannot touch them.
