Description
Shows a cartoon strip which runs back to front and starts at the end. In the cartoon Pansy Wong, a Chinese MP in the National Party, and the Prime Minister, Helen Clark, engage in a karate fight. Pansy Wong says "Asian culture should feature more in N.Z. life!" and then kicks Helen Clark - 'Hyaha!' 'Farang!!!!!'. Helen Clark blocks her with her hands - 'Thok!' 'Sshonk!' - and tells Pansy "Steady on Pansy ... You guys don't do too bad!". In the next frame Pansy replies "OH NO? Most Kiwis think of Asians as No.2 citizens - and No.10!!" and is doing a forward somersault with a samurai sword in her hands. Helen is in the Crane position and asks "What's No.10?". Pansy replies "Beef in black bean sauce!" as she cuts Helen's head in half with the sword. Refers to the status of Asians in New Zealand society.
