    Frankly I'm appalled. there is a system which captures all communications traffic and stores it for future analysis. This system is used by at least 4 other countries to protect them from real and present danger. our Prime Minister tells us he didn't allow our spies to use it because it seemed a little too intrusive. How irresponsible is this man? he is placing us in danger of TERRORIST ATTACKS, we have no defence, he should be held to account and sacked immediately.

    If you want me, I’ll be in my corner laughing myself to death.

    Hey. That's a ripoff of a Radiohead lyric. Watch it.

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    The party was "assured the music in question did not infringe any copyright and was an original work".

    It arranged the music license and fee through the Australasian Performing Rights Association and Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (APRA/AMCOS).

    "Regardless, as our advertising was moving on to different material at the time of the complaint, over two weeks ago, we were able to accommodate the complaining artist and undertake not to continue using the track.

    Now don't that sound familiar.
    We were but then we didn't.
    That is soooo National. We were going to allow a tunnel through the Alps but decided we wouldn't. We were going to allow a monorail through Southland but decided we wouldn't. We were going to spy wholesale on the New Zealand public but decided we wouldn't. Ain't we just the bees knees.

    Eminem is suing the National Party over the unauthorised use of his music in their election ads.

    I did send him an email a cuppla weeks ago, he never got back to me, hey Stan, I’m your biggest fan, you should be with me, not Key…

    Irony indeed.

    Hey Key, loser yourself.

    When people tell you the "moment of truth" was an anti-climax, a fizzer, a nothing - don't believe them.

    The timing of Glenn Greenwald's reporting is pertinent only to the spin which National is pushing.

    I get the feeling I should take your abuse as high praise Steve.

    No, you really shouldn't.
