Hooton and the Blowfish

When I read Hooton’s jaw dropping back peddle of a resignation, I laughed so hard I fell off my couch…

Matthew Hooton resigns as National Party staffer

“I can’t justify the impact on my family and other personal and professional responsibilities for seven weeks.

…oh, he felt the commute to Wellington after National’s inevitable win would be a tad too much for him did he?

He’s had a couple of weeks to write his resignation letter and this was the best he could come up with?

Come on Hoots, you’re not even trying now.

The commute will be a struggle seems fittingly petty seeing as Hoots is widely suspected of enabling the Muller fiasco which has bewilderingly ended up with mass resignations, another leadership tussle, multiple MP self mutilations and National still in free fall.

Hoots is despised within National with more intensity than Baby Jesus hates abortion. Donald Trump would be more welcome at a Feminist Spoken Word Poetry Slam competition.

Hoots is going back to his consultancy, but who the hell will be touching his radioactive arse after this wretched adventure he signed up to?

His poor old purse Ben Thomas can’t keep the lights on with The Spinoff podcast.

Watching Hoots be the last rat to jump off the sinking ship that he helped sink is just glorious.

It’s like he’s a bull that walked into a China shop, smashed ever single piece of china in the shop and then thanks the shop owner for the job, only to decline it because of family commitments.

Come on folks, this is pretty funny. Sweet Jesus this has been such a disastrous gamble.

What an omnishambles of a clusterfuck.

  1. Sad end to a somewhat interesting effort to stir the politic pot.
    Martyn we have dirt on
    how National acted illegally in 2014 tanks to Hoot and you need to place this illegal activity by National under Michelle Boag knowledge actually did go ahead under transport Minister Steven Joyce illegal activities on roading contacts and she was advised that day by Hoots and ignored the evidence then and now the new leader Judith Collins is still pushing roads roads roads again now, what not rail?.

    But Hoots did tell the truth about Steven Joyce when he was Transport Minister was dealing in illegal contracts planning of new roads?????? He was demanding MBIE/NZTA allow a $100 Million roading contract to proceed without approval.

    In 2014 he was on the panel with Michelle Boag and under fire from Michelle Boag said something about Steven Joyce being involved with trying to push through MBIE NZTA a $100 Million dollar roading contract without proper paperwork and Joyce demanded MBIE ignore the proper process .

    Hear the discussing here about at the 20th minute mark.

    Matthew Hooton’s assertions re the Prime Minister’s Office

    hooton‘Explosive’ is one of those words that gets kicked around in politics and political reporting to the point where it’s almost lost its meaning.

    But it’s not an exaggeration to describe right wing spin doctor and self-declared National Party loyalist Matthew Hooton‘s performance on RadioLIVE this morning as incendiary. He effectively called Prime Minister John Key ‘dishonest’, said the PM’s office and chief of staff Wayne Eagleson is implicated in the Dirty Tricks scandal (viz. the SIS-Goff-OIA affair) and more, described Jason Ede’s black-ops brigade as ‘acting under orders’.

    And in a fiery exchange, he described former National Party President (and present-day apologist) Michelle Boag as ‘a hack’ with ‘no political views’ who is ‘all about is defending a government that has behaved in ways that [are] literally indefensible and you know it’ …

    Listen for yourself.

    UPDATE: The ‘fiery exchange’ has now been highlighted as a RadioLIVE editor’s audio pick here.

    * I’ve archived it here too (audio player below) because RadioLIVE only keeps 7 days audio available and I’ve noticed sometimes Mediaworks launders its talkback station’s audio feed when things get … contentious.

  2. “Watching Hoots be the last rat to jump off the sinking ship that he helped sink is just glorious.”
    Boag, & Hooton were two major but unpleasant influencers.
    Now they’ve gone its more like the ships leaving the sinking rat.

  3. So will zb or Magic pick up Hooton for a regular spot? You know, try to make something of the shit/sensationalist/wacko sort of approach. Or will Hooton go into hiding for four years or two months until everyone has forgotten? On the ‘Brazen Factor’ where would he rate? And where would the media companies rate?

  4. ” He’s had a couple of weeks to write his resignation letter and this was the best he could come up with ”
    Well i am sure he advised Muller on a viable excuse to use and how to exit when the heat got to much.
    So much for being an able strategist. What a total farce.

  5. Perhaps Hooton could team up with Hosking on his early morning breakfast spot and the two of them could provide us all with a bit of shining wit…..if you will excuse the spoonerism.

      • That’s brilliant! Thanks for the laugh. Now where can I use that spoonerism?
        Hooton joining Peter Wiiliams on radio retard (renamed as Radio Madshit) or Duncan Garner on Radio Ritalin would be fun. More fun than Fux news I think.
        All of them examples of ‘shining wit’. Love it.

  6. Yuk.
    Fuck hooten. Nothing’s funny while people are sleeping in cars or shop doorways. Fuck hooten. The pudgy little prick shouldn’t feel safe. Like those sleeping in cars or in shop doorways never feel safe.
    I’ll never forget going up to a cafe past an older Maori woman trying to nestle down on a sheet of cardboard right there on the footpath.
    Fuck hooten. Fuck dirty little rightie national. Fuck greedy, cowardly old labour you fucking sell-outs. Fuck you all, you awful bastards.

  7. And as the gloom begins to fall
    I see there is no… owning all
    And though you came with sword held high
    You did not conquer, only die.

    Conquistador Procul Harum

  8. Well, Bomber. You got it right with this one. Hooton is scum. Demolished National and Bridges polling in the quest to install Muller and himself at the teat. He is unemployable now.
