from the other side of the pond .
I'm guessing from close to the spot where the Owen Wilkes memorial bench is...
What do you call dicks then?
isn't a bundle of dicks called a fagot (Faggot Brit)
or was it sticks?
: - )
perhaps a bundle of dicks would not be dissimilar
to a bundle of rods with a projecting axe head...
a.k.a. fasces - which is of course the root of fascist
and sounds a bit like...
Apparently MBIE was cc-ed on the letter.
I guess people no longer mention CCs on letters any more then.
here's the letter (via The Press )
Careful with that axe, you genie...
Can you investigate if Paul Thompson's selection as head of RNZ is part of the preparation for massive change, if not sale?
He was used as an agent of change at Fairfax, if I recall correctly...
Otherwise one hopes his print nous translates to the aural spectrum.
my paranoia clearly needs a tune up .
ask and you shall receive...
I can't believe it's Friday again already!
an unread letter day...
The other question, for me, is how did Brownlee know the letter existed?
Was he CC'ed in the correspondence?
Was he told by the national consenting authority? (and if so why didn't they also follow up by checking with the council the 'important' letter had arrived?)
- or (at a paranoid stretch) is Marryatt a tool of the Govt's long term plan to take more control from Councils - most of his actions speak of someone trying to destabilise something up rather than fix it...
(Hell, look at the state he left Hamilton in!)
If there was a Concern Troll Oscars, he'd be in to win....
Whoa! If only the naked city eye could see like that!
During the power outages after the earthquakes the sky looked like that in Chchch (well almost) - I love the anecdote about folk from New York being out in the deep dark country for the first time, asking why the sky was ''all blurry and smudgey"?
My other did this one night...
I'm guessing that's too high in the sky to be a Subaru logo...
confined to barrackers...
Or demand a minimum standard of behaviour in public (including online)?
On the money!
Perhaps folk could write to AIG and the All Bla©ks and ask if these dickheads are their target audience, and will they continue to condone the implied slur on their brand - or could they perhaps put up their hands with signs, and a spoken warning before the game, that the event is held for the enjoyment of all attendees, and any bullying behaviour will result in ejection...
Not the people's voice...
The two highest-rated (by far) comments on the front page are not supportive.
Why doesn't The Herald have a 'thumbs down' option also?
The Press does, and it acts as a good leveller - it can't be tinkered with, as if you try to add extra 'likes' from the same account, it subtracts your vote, and vice versa.
(though I do wish they'd reinstate the option of view by latest or from first comment)
Anyone seen this site offering protection from network surveillance.
Wouldn't that be the perfect business model / front for a savvy / sneaky intelligence gathering operation that wanted to corral a lot of 'people with something to hide'?
