Vicki Dunne and the naked emperor

By johnboy - 28 July 2005 13

Vicki Dunne has put out a strange media release comparing Comrade Stanhope with the emperor with no clothes on the issue of K-10 mega schools and Wayne Berry’s critcism of the so-called consultation process.

Unlike Vicki I’m going to assume you all know the story in question and will not belabour it at length.

So aside from moving the K-10-mega debate up to a new thread I have a question for you all.

What’s more disturbing? The image of Mr. Stanhope naked? Or Vicki Dunne writing about nudity and putting it in our minds in that context?

What’s Your opinion?

Err.. extremely quickly….

Yes, it turned untidy quickly..

Morning. Bet your heads are sore, eh? Bet IT DOESN’T HELP IF I SHOUT, EH???

I’m sorry I missed it, perhaps another time

Maelinar 3:24 pm 29 Jul 05

BTW it’s


(Thum-Per) (as in a thing that thumps)

Maelinar 3:22 pm 29 Jul 05

Since I can turn around and talk to Thumper it’s a little easier to explain concepts etc…

We had a bet which had defined rules which we talked about directly (doesn’t matter about the specifics – but it was about when the media/government would pick up the story)

If you want a better explanation, durham arms this afternoon from 4:30 – no make that 4, OK final offer 3:45.

3:30 is as close as I can go!

Well at 4:30 look for a chain smoking short guy and a tall blonde fellow in a checkered shirt, chances are it’s us. If not you might meet some new friends for life.

Beer makes us great conversationalists, but we will only acknowledge you by your screen name, to maintain your anominity (even if we know your real name – another long story)

It’s Friday, so I’m sure you’ll forgive me for being slow to understand the bet… Was it that the mainstream media, when aware of the story, would largely plagiarise RiotAct’s version of it?

Sorry, I’m probably totally missing the point. I’m normally not this confused until well into a good Saturday night. Could you clear things up for me?

Maelinar 2:40 pm 29 Jul 05

I had a silent bet with Thumper that the news would pick up the story by Wednesday next week, loosely following the lines of the post. It only took it 2 days since the posting began on RA for it to make it to mainstream media.

Topics such as ‘super school’, inadequate consultation, angered community, development of ideas etc have already been hammered to death here, conveniently for the media/govt to pick up and run with..

agreed Chris, that’s a pretty damn scary thought.

i think the idea of stanhope being hauled around canberra in the nude is pretty funny. especially with sub-zero mornings…

best media release ive read for ages.

Chris 9:26 am 29 Jul 05

Disregarding the above enigmatic statement and response – what is seriously disturbing is the image of Vicki Dunne naked. Yecch !

Thumper 8:14 am 29 Jul 05

Yep. Owe you a pint.

Maelinar 8:08 am 29 Jul 05

Thumper: I win.
