RED BOTTOMS NEED SMACK DOWN

We were doing a little blog cruise when we spied upon this interesting little post from the enigmatic Alf Grumble who has a lovely take down of Clare Curran pious little wank post on Red Alert about the new British cross party Blog - Lord of the Blogs deigning to mention the Antipodean Red rantings.

Anyway Alf kindly pointed out that Ms Curran is a geographic dyslexic.

Alf is surprised there has been no thundering of outrage from the Busted Blonde at Roarprawn. BB – of course – comes from Bluff, which is roughly 200 kilometres below Dunedin South.

It’s not that much further away as the crow flies, sure, but Dunedin is sitting at around 45.50S and Bluff Harbour is at 46.36S.

We know Labour is prone to take a bit of latitude with its debating style, but this much latitude …?

Nah. Clare has been caught spouting bullshit.



So she tells the Brits that she hails from the bottom of the South Island.
I am an electorate MP from the seat of Dunedin South, at the bottom of the South Island. I am one of the new Labour MPs. And I’m the spokesperson for communications and IT, so Red Alert is a bit of project for me.
Kia pai to ra (Have an awesome day)


What a load of shite .. And this woman made a living out of being a spinner.

Now BB is from the Deep South. Originally from Invercargill and Bluff. That is the bottom of New Zealand - the roundy bit. Dunedin, just up the track aways , is the place affectionately known by deep southers like us as the arsehole of the country...

So no wonder that Curran is an "awesome" tutae spouter..

Ah, "tutae". Clare can add it to her collection along with "Kia pai to ra". New slogan "Labour, the 'tutae' party."

BB is not from Bluff. She was born in Invercargill and grew up in Otatara.

I love that last line - has anyone tried to put it on Red Alert?

I can't I have been banned for 3 months by `intolerent Trev' for abuse and trolling. Not true in either case by the way.

Fancy doing that to "and a visitor from Hawkes Bay".
