  • Hard News: Dirty Politics, in reply to Paul Williams,

    Graham and Simich and Brewer sound like the kind of dickheads who never quite managed

    Add Slater and Odgers too.
    My presumption that these children of Tory Grandees seem to be lacking in the ability to earn an honest living.
    Perhaps the parents could go back to whatever value based school they sent them to and ask for a refund or remedial morality lessons. Not a good recommendation for nepotism.
    Where's Mr Ede, enquiring minds want to know.

    Hear Boag spinning like a top and Hooten having a real go at her on Radio Live (embedded audio clip).

    Boag and Hooten going hammer and tongs fucking gold!
    I don’t think she could lie straight in bed.

    Neck minute, I over heard some kids talking about glueing Whaleoils head onto National party billboards.

    Made my morning, glad I wasn't drinking coffee at the time.

    National have a lie down with dogs you get up with fleas problem.

    First time I've ever visited kiwiblog.
    Reminds me of KFC, Once a decade probably longer between samples and then walk away feeling revolted. As for Whaleoil?

  • Feed: Fulminating and fermenting, in reply to B Jones,

    Harringtons, the brewery, make a ginger beer which if my ability to detect natural from artificial is up to scratch make a very good example of a brewed ginger beer.
    Probably not wise to let the kids snarf it down on a hot summer day as it's around 5% alcohol.

    My Wife reckons it's the business taste wise.
    I'm more an over hopped IPA man myself although current inclemency is inclining me towards the stout/porter end of the spectrum at the moment.
    Went to hopscotch Mt Eden this arvo for my weekend top up.

  • Hard News: Snowden and New Zealand,

    Too messy.
    Too complicated.
    Nothing to see here, move along
    More handwavium from that nice Mr Key.
    Where's my tax cut?
    I can't see this issue going anywhere, would like to be proved wrong of course but very much doubt it.
    Followed by weary sigh.

  • Hard News: The Language of Climate,

    <q>The biggest piece of unsupported scaremongering . . . comes . . . from those businesses with vested interests . . . <q>

    Or politicians who call it "nanny state" because mandating fluorescent bulbs as an energy saving alternative is an attack on every freedom, liberty etc. etc.

    There is a lot of low hanging fruit as far as energy conservation is concerned with very little in the way of monetary and lifestyle costs, just the need for rational thinking not omg the greens are going to lead us into the dark ages.

    This short sighted political braying is unnecessary and frankly immoral.

    "Pope Francis assures atheists: You don’t have to believe in God to go to heaven".

    A Catholic heaven presumably.

    Better than the alternative/s one presumes.

  • Southerly: A Blog on Behalf of an…,

    Maybe the jurors shouldn't discuss there vote with each other but come to their own conclusions via whatever research and study they consider necessary. No domination by more forceful but not necessarily wiser heads?

  • Hard News: This time it's Syria, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    I don't think one can really apply today's standards to the 17th century

    Not trying to apply current standards at all.
    However looking at past actions can inform future ones.
    When doing this judgements will always be made regarding previous actions.
    Yes, the past is a foreign country but it can still be studied.
    Those who don't remember the past are condemned to repeat it or something along those lines.
