Rod Kane: Now Here Is a Conundrum

As many of you may well know I detest the media almost as much as I detest people like Willie Jackson and indeed every single Maori activist and the dumb white wokeys that support them.

The night back in 2020 when Jacinda Ardern got in I immediately cancelled my Herald subscription. The Herald is normally $4 something on a weekday and $5.20 on a Saturday – if you went down to the shop and bought it.

But I was on an extremely good intro rate of $8.50 a week back then, which was indeed a steal, but at least I now didn’t have to read the constant sugary tripe from the insufferable wrinkly left wingers like Dempster and Kaire.

Then last Friday night at 8 pm I got a phone call from the vile rag asking me to resubscribe; naturally I declined in the nicest possible way, with eggs on top.

But then she offered me the evil thing six days a week, including Saturday, delivered to my far away rural property, plus their online Herald premium, for a minimum of 12 months and no contract, and all for… waaaaait for it…Yes, $6.20 a WEEK!

Now then, the temptation to explode and feel good went right the way up, when suddenly I held back and thought… hang on…

There is no way, in my humble opinion, that these treacherous idiots could produce something syphilitic like that, print it and deliver it to the back of nowhere for $8.20 a week. They would have to go bust, surely?

So I said yes, I’ll have half a dozen in fact! Well, not quite.

But here is the conundrum.

Am I now a dark warrior for helping to take these cretins down to the basement floors along with the janitor and trash compactor to complete financial ruin?

Or am I a coward: a sickly, yellow-spined flower girl, and have I joined the ranks of the puke-ish Dempster and Kaire, who I now have to put up with all over again?

Maybe there are some out there from the printing trade that can advise me if indeed they must be desperate to do this and can they actually make money out of this?

If not, I’m putting my hero’s cape and underpants on. Well, maybe not the cape.

You would have to wonder Rod. Nonsensical, but a trend we see more and more of.

What is a sickly yellow spined flower girl? Sounds like she has jaundice and desperately in need of medical treatment rather than being used as a jibe.

I am going to 'strongly suggest' YES - re enlist and when you have finished with a a paper a day you could (as you reside in Rural NZ) -

1.- cut paper into suitable sized squares and use as Loo paper > you can then say - sorry following thought is unprintable -

2. - put sheets in the compost bin and cover with Kitchen food waste, lawn clippings > you can then say, you are 're-cycling', as the stories were not that inspiring.

Finally seek Mental Health assist, to re -confirm your original commitment, re subscription.

I'm on a hiatus since my $1 per week online Premium sub expired. I refuse to pay any more for the NZH tripe

Fully agree with this article - it is sad what a comic the NZH has descended into. As noted, the same apologists for Labour and other socialists appear in the (reduced) letters column almost constantly.
And since the change of Govt, their cartoonists have become quite vile, and at times hard to fathom.
I cancelled my subscription, now relying on SkyNews and other platforms for actual news/opinions.
The Australian is still a decent newspaper, in my view.
