    Does seem fascinating that Genter has an ( valid) issue about expensive consultants reports , when she is the author of a number of expensive consultants reports.

    As well , to be caught out by Brownshirt over whether Levin- Otaki was a RoN or not seems sloppy

    sounds like the schools need an excel template or some such modern day marvel to input the data into

    And what data would that be ?

    As Russell says
    "It is inconsistent, narrow and not subject to meaningful moderation. Even the standards aren’t standard – different schools have quite different written interpretations of what they mean"

    Would that be one of those modern marvels of 'garbage in garbage out'

    other apex court — the Privy Council — never wore robes, and still doesn’t, on account of not being originally a court.

    I think they refer to themselves as a 'Board'

    Its the 'disco' part of the story that has me more worried. Much more worried than the hierarchy of court officials.

    Have invitations gone out all ready for the trial 'wrap party' ?

  • Hard News: Women and their representations,

    Jean Batten ? Celebrity culture wasnt just a recent invention. After the war she only made one appearance in NZ and lived as a recluse overseas- not that there is anything wrong with that

    Back in 1170 there was a similar dispute:

    Archbishop Mallard remained steadfast in his refusal to recant. This news threw Queen Judith (still in France) into a rage in which she was purported to shout: "What sluggards, what cowards have I brought up in my court, who care nothing for their allegiance to their lord. Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest."

    So off they went to search for for Archbishop Mallard and Bishop Little

    They arrived at Canterbury during the afternoon of December 29 and immediately searched for the Archbishop. Mallard & Little fled to the Cathedral where a service was in progress. The knights found them at the altar, drew their swords and began hacking at their victim finally splitting their skulls.

  • OnPoint: To Whom it May Concern,

    The government is reconsidering its policy on Tobacco and will be recommending they convert their factories to canning the laughter of our children. We know there is a worldwide shortage of canned laughter, only held in check by the dominance of TV reality shows. However the new show The GC was greeted by laughter, which indicates what the audiences are really after.
    We dont want the IRB or even Durex to be telling the world what we are good at, we want to be known as the first choice for young effervescent canned laughter
