StS Meeting Bingo

Apparently we are going to hear ‘unscripted’, ‘new voices’ (from which the only new voice is in fact not an Anti-Stadium person Michael Steadman) at a meeting at the Town Hall.

Considering we have heard from these people before, and remembering that Eckhoff’s and Hamlin’s performance at the inaugural meeting July last year was comical if not hysterical at best, these ‘unscripted’ voices better have come up with something new.

So in the light of the same-old same-old that we are going to hear, I thought it would be fun to have a little fun at this meeting. Public Meeting Bingo has always been a favourite game of mine. Basically you get some cards, when you hear the word you cross them out, and just like in Bingo if you get a line you yell out in full voice (irrespective of the speaker) “LINE” and then of course “Bingo”. The reaction from the concerned masses gathered is funny (ohh the scorn), and it never fails to put off an ‘unscripted’ speaker.

So download these and have some fun. I guess my cover will finally be blown. These words are all from the speakers mentioned, and I have no doubt that they will use these and other ‘tired’ arguments’ again. Thankfully some of the more looney ‘terrorist’ ‘global warming’ scare mongers ideas aren’t speaking (but Eckhoff – really? it’s going to be the same old libertarian right wing ACT conservative white male central otago farmer rubbish all over again. I bet $10 to charity that he says the words ‘this isn’t very Politically Correct of me’).

Clicking on the card will open the printable version.

    That’s upping the anti, Paul.
    Let’s take a pace or so back – free speech, unscripted or scripted, in a meeting that is public and hosted by StS in their own free time is absolutely OK by anyone’s democratic standards – including yours.

    We have no idea what this will do or for what purpose, but y’know glad someone is talking and that there might be questions, fun and gaiety – while the stadium ship launches in full ratepayer funded regalia of flags and balloons — and, WOE(!!!!!!!) the dramatic RWC 2011 marketing scrum for tourism, product exposure or anything you want for a few weeks. There’s a theme here, dammit. Unexpurgated Glory.
    Not a what if – again, a why not.

    WHY NOT should read as why isn’t StS pronouncing a PURPOSE – say, loud and clear, the public rally is a fundraiser for the judicial review potential. Just put it up, stay true to that. Surely, StS is (finally…) here to focus its supporters and STATE what its plans are and what its fighting fund target is. Get the people there in practical assistance, not for two bucks each, MORE.

    There’s a lot of sympathy out there right now, tap it strongly – nail the cause (NOT into the door of the Municipal Chambers, fools).

    Get your act together StS. Or just go away.

  2. I actually think I’m out of town anyway, and this is a bit of a laugh. It’s just a simple play on the fact that these are going to be new voices, when infact it’s going to be the same old, same old. Rob Hamlin will say “I told you so”.

    Oh no all for free and open speech, never get me wrong on that one, as long as it doesn’t indulge in lies or disinformation as Rob Hamlin did right off the bat. Sure he’ll play the ‘I told you so’ with Investor Entrapment, but will he ever admit he got it wrong with the 20,000 and falling capacity or the $500m cost or that Twickenham is a single use stadium.

    Nah there won’t be anything new, and apart from Steadman these aren’t even new faces, and by his own admission in the paper he’s not even firmly Anti-Stadium.

    Besides I made the cards too easy, within 10 mins there would be the odd shout of “line” or “Bingo”, it’s all too bloody predictable.

    You gotta admit, it’s a fun idea, the cards and the stadium.
