    Hhhmmmm . . . . . . . .

    I didn't like the partisan nature of that tale,
    so I had a go at what might be very loosely
    called a 're-write' or 'edit.'
    A well-known old priest lay dying in hospital. He had
    faithfully served the people of NZ for many years. His
    nurse asked him if there was something she could do
    for him.

    I would really like to see MPs Phil Heatley & Shane
    Jones before I die, he whispered.

    I'll see what I can do, Father, replied the nurse, who
    then sent the request to Parliament. Soon the word
    arrived; Phil and Shane would be delighted to come.

    As they drove together the hospital, Phil commented to
    Shane, I don't know why the old priest wants to see us,
    but it certainly will help our images given the revelations
    on our credit card spending. Shane agreed that it was
    a good thing.

    When they arrived, the priest asked them to stand
    separately, on each side of his bed. He took Shane's
    hand in one hand and Phil's hand in the other. There
    was silence and a look of serenity filled the old
    priest's countenance.

    Finally Shane spoke: Father, of all the people you could
    have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as
    you near the end?

    The old priest slowly replied, I have always tried to
    pattern my life after our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.


    Amen, said Shane & Phil, almost together.

    Then old priest continued: Jesus Christ died between
    two thieves and I want to do the same.

    The dying Priest, Shane Jones & Chris Carter

    An old priest lay dying in a hospital. He had faithfully served the people of NZ for many years. He motioned for his nurse to come near.

    'Yes, Father?' said the nurse.

    'I would really like to see Shane Jones and Chris Carter before I die', whispered the priest.


    'I'll see what I can do, Father', replied the nurse.

    The nurse sent the request to the labour Party and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived; Shane and Chris would be delighted to visit the priest.

    As they drove to the hospital, Shane commented to Chris, 'I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it certainly will help our images given the relations on our credit card spending, it might even save our political careers”! Chris agreed that it was a good thing wishing all the time he had bought Pansies rather than Roses for his boyfriend.

    When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Shane’s hand in his right hand and Chris’s hand in his left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.


    Finally Shane Jones spoke: 'Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?'

    The old priest slowly replied, 'I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

    Amen', said Shane.

    Amen', said Chris..

    The old priest continued: 'Jesus Christ our saviour died between two lying thieving bastards and I would like to do the same...’
