A new political party, the Armchair Critics has been formed to respond to crises.
Self-appointed chair Mr Clark Kent said the idea for the ACP came to him while he was watching television.
“Night after night, I sat there and watched a depressing series of financial, social, moral, natural and unnatural crises unfold and no-one’s been able to stop them.
“You see all these so-called experts, rabbiting on about process and procedures when they should be getting in there boots and all and worry about consequences later.
“All them shiny pants and boffins haven’t stopped the earth moving in Christchurch, they’re not even trying to turn the tide back in Tauranga and none of them’s even mentioned Coronation Street.
“It’s time to stop talking and start doing and me and me mates are going to do it.”
Mr Kent said Armchair Party policies would include compulsory conscription into a disaster-response army for all 18 – 30 year olds and tax-free status for super heroes.
The party slogan is you don’t have to be a rocket scientist and the logo will be a bloke with his underpants outside his trousers tilting at a windmill.
