Prostitutes, pansies and punks; … lesbians and left wing scum

Okay, only posted that headline because g.blog needs some more google hits. The headline is actually from the lyrics of the song below. But apparently it does the trick in getting more people here.

Anyway, this post was inspired by a comment on The Standard today:

Fox news. Funnily enough I just subscribed today. In the USA, it’s OK to be a hard line conservative. Not so OK for us here in NZ. What does that tell you about freedom in NZ? (my emphasis)

It seems “freedom” is in the eye of the beholder. Take a look at this Tom Robinson Band video from about 30 years ago:

And which version of “freedom” do you support?

  1. Cool vid -says it all. I was a hooker so I don’t use my own name here.

    Id like to gt back on some of the johns now who did a runner. You guys for the greens back me up?

    Well, the Green Party did back the Prostitution Reform bill, legalising prostitution here.

    Nice post, Toad!
    As a self-confessed long-haired (at times) layabout, I quite enjoyed seeing all those historical moments. Let’s hear it for left-wing scum!

    ‘Freedom in NZ’ does tend to vary according to how much you can afford to pay for – those in isolated rural communities seem to get less right to freedom than nice white middle-class folk. Unless I’m drawing a very long bow!
