New Zealand’s most fearless (and thus honest) cartoonist Garrick Tremain, continues to pump out common sense commentaries.
Here’s his latest re the government’s nonsensical sign language announcement.
Today’s Dominion-Post, doubtless with heavy hearts, has abandoned writing half the paper in a language few can read (maori) and has sunk to new depths of wetness, publishing its title in bloody sign language, specifically arm waving sketches.
It’s madness and a massive distraction to television viewers when a speaker is accompanied by someone aping a spastic, this to cater for an improbable audience of people both deaf and blind.
I include blind otherwise captions would do the job adequately without the distraction of the silly sign language carry-on.
