New Honours Award announced

Since there was widespread dismay at Helen Clark and her ONZ and since the list seems full of failed politicians and is now at 24 living (though Clark is really the undead) New Zealanders instead of the proscribed 20, I thought I would make a new order and make it more exclusive than the so called exclusive Order of New Zealand. It needs to be more exclusive, kind of like the comparison between the Auckland Club and the Northern Club. The Auckland Club almost anyone can get into, the Northern Club is much more exclusive. Let’s face it who would to have dinner with any on the ONZ list. I wouldn’t even want to share Maccas with them. So time for a new award. An exclusive Award. A uniquely blogosphere award, one not jacked up or interfered with by patsy media hacks or useless politicians.

The Order of The Whale

Open to just 10 living New Zealanders. They must be selfless, not selfish. They must be the best at what they do, not just turn up. No one who inherited their wealth is eligible. No one who just participated is eligible. Winners only, no Losers.

Nominations are open now.

At this point I would also like to advise that I will be running a monthly Whale Award system.

Minister of the Month -? for the Minister/Opposition Frontbencher that has performed the best/achieved the most in the month.

Ministerial Loser of the Month – for the Minister/Opposition Frontbencher that has made the biggest cock-up in the month.

MP of the Month – for the MP that has performed the best/achieved the most in the month.

MP Loser of the Month, for the MP that has made the biggest cock-up in the month.

The awards will be announced on the last day of the month. The 12 winners throughout the year will be the finalists for the annual prizes in those categories.

I haven’t yet decided on the prizes. I might get some trophies made up to be passed around the various winners and losers. At the very least I will get to come to Wellington 12 times a year, which is my penance for having such a scheme.
