    Amanda deserves a hawkseby pay out, they have fucked up her career.

    John Key fucked it up. Look at Bradley Ambrose and his treatment once John key became involved.Look at the similarity with Bevan Chaung's treatment also from the same crowd around National. Key displays narcissistic tendencies . His brain fades are his attempts to hide information without having to show the true deceit. His threat to go to Hawaii if he doesn't win keeps his muppets in check (save the odd rogue like Collins, who will be enjoying this) He surrounds himself with all who have to be compliant. As soon as his guard is down and becomes exposed ,he has teams jumping in to protect him, from people like Glucina, Farrar,Hosking, Henry and now Currie and let's face it, all the other corners with Government loans like mediaworks and now R and D grants like Oracle,All places with a vested interest in staying on side with the JK Corporation.
    Amanda's job was around the corner from Key's house, doubt if she's still there but if the job is,probably not for long. Key was at the cafe often. The bosses would love that in Parnell. They labelled her immediately with insinuating "strong political views" .To any reader, that meant, probably more pro Green/ labour. Glucina's brother works for Amanda's bosses. They got Amanda over to their bosses house into their comfort zone ,out of hers. They led her to believe Glucina was someone other than they all knew she was. Glucina has a photographer on speed dial, that's how Gossip columnists work.It was deceitful from the start. She believed in her bosses. They did not have her best interests at heart. They were more concerned about what people would think of their business and how it would be affected, not at all about Amanda.I think it says a lot about them and possibly why neither Amanda or management didn't complain in the first instance.It was never about Amanda's best interests, it was about damage control for John Key.

    It will be hard to stop visiting Hip Group cafes but there are a lot of other nice cafes in Auckland.

    Of course there are Bart, heaps of them. Make a stand if you want to. It's a good point to make to all employers if nothing else.
    The intention of Amanda Bailey being photographed with her employers was to show her support for them. Throughout this ordeal she has showed decorum and sensitivity for their situation they have found themselves in. Unfortunately for Amanda she is now being revictimised and whether her employers meant that or not, it has put her at the centre of what Glucina relishes and her job will now be in jeopardy. So the bullies are feeling good about that, I bet. It would however be excellent if her employer came out in support of this brave woman, somehow I doubt it. Intimidation has many tentacles.

    Interesting snippets of info from Trevett in the Herald this morn
    NZ on Air appointment is cosy.

    As National's tenure in Government has rolled on, more and more former MPs and party office holders have been appointed to boards and other bodies. The party links are rarely disclosed and often slip under the radar because the names are not widely known.

    Because I record CL and because I don't watch it at 7, I signed the petitions to show in the only way I can my support to keep this on Air. I don't expect the show to always peak my interest for every story but I know the efforts involved to progress information for the people with as much help as the journalists can and as much hindrance as those with vested interest will if they want to curb our enthusiasm, need my support, if, for nothing else than to stop another turd I can no longer watch appearing on my screen. I have now also supported the Action Station with funding toward a louder objection and that is all I can do without a people meter. Key and his influence have infiltrated every aspect of New Zealanders lives and for him to now way in to try influence those unsure of the direction TV3 is heading (although I suspect he already did in his "mates" kinda way nudge nudge wink wink) deserves my wrath. What ever the out come, we need the John Campbells of this world just to expose the voiceless, the zero hours , the 90% of our population across the Planet. Gawd help us all.

    I enjoyed Q&A this am, not the bit on dollar parity so much but the section on city planning and the Greek economy. Good and relevant causes, passionate people, engaged interviewers and presenters. (We have to forgive Hannah DP for the Slater piece on Seven Sharp) Why wouldn't the rest of NZ want to see that sort of thing packaged with the news

    Does anyone know if Campbell Live format changed when Weldon and Christie came on board? Was that why we got more fluffy ducks and less investigative journalism ?
