  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming, in reply to Sofie Bribiesca,

    Well if that is true Sofie
    Where are the leaks of Miss Clark's emails calling West Coast voters " Inbred ferals" or from the present Labour Leader to his favourite lawyer?

    I think the Left should think about whose private stuff ends up in public before playing the dirty politics card
    As the facts do not back them up so far

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming, in reply to A S,

    Well, as we now know private emails can be hacked and revealed if it is in the "public interest" especially if they are Right wing ones though I note Russell to his credit was unhappy with the release of stuff about Slater's mother

    But imagine the uproar if emails from a real reporter became public and if it was someone on the Left, well I give you Andrea Vance being tracked through Parliment

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming,

    Interesting, on the Left we have people joining dots every which way
    But when Dot Com gets up on the stage and admits he hacked the German PM and hates NZ''s PM that's not news because Russell knows DC is not the hacker
    And interestingly Pam's rant seems to indicate she has access to as yet unreleased emails ie she knows which journalists were talking to whaleboy
    Hmm lots of dots there

  • Hard News: In The Green Room,

    I presume when you say " or even voter" that means you do vote but not (so far) for the Greens

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    So it is terrible that Whaleboy hacked the Labour Party computer (who claimed at the time the door was left wide open ) but ok if Hager uses material to write a book for profit hacked illegally from the Whale

    Really struggling to get my head around this

    Of course if the PM department provided WB with the material that is very different

  • Hard News: Not doing justice,

    It must be depressing for those who graft away because they believe in the cause , especially as Labour was having a good week
    I note Greg Presland was in a position to know what was written, pity he didn't take down the comments
    On the other hand David Cuncliffe's handling was almost perfect, no pussyfooting around, straight from the John Key hand book

  • Hard News: Going solar?,

    Don't piss around put in one of these big boys

    We went the vacuum tube way a couple of years ago when upgrading bathrooms and water system, it is great. A friend who put in a wet back as well has not paid a heating bill since
    There is talk that electricity prices may fall but that is not the way of the world

  • Legal Beagle: Suicide Reporting; or, The…,

    Is it true that we can sheet this home to Jim Anderton
    I know he had a personal interest in the subject and a google search shows that is a constant meme that he drove it, I just can't find the proof
    Certainly as a policy it has not helped

  • Hard News: The Letter, in reply to Ianmac,

    Well Mr Cunliffe says in the letter Mr Lui approached him which to most people would imply that he did meet him
    So once again tricky or a liar, take your pick

  • Hard News: The Letter,

    While there has been some spin from the usual left wing suspects along the "Yes but" your last line says it all
    One PR disaster after another from Cunliffe is leading the floating voters who change Goverments in this country to think that we are not ready for a left leaning government yet
