    That $200,000 would be what it costs for each of the the TWO high priced PR talent that she has taken on board to 'advise' her during the next 6 months.

    Whats they bet they bought this to her attention and wrote the media strategy -with their eyes closed- for little miss solo mother

  • Field Theory: You play to win the game,

    As for the election stories ( or sport stories) not mentioning the result.
    Thats for a very good reason, they are written before the result is known... I kid you not.

    A classic example from Deborah Hill Cone this morning about all the confusion we are having over who will form the next government...

    oopps.... that was quick they flicked it off the net allready

  • Hard News: Don't bother voting,

    Did Hide also not declare his income from Dancing with the Stars in 2006 on the register of Pecuniary interests ?

    Strangely, he announces his 'donation' of said fees to the Remuera Rackets Club, which then goes to fund a woman ( half his age) who some have said he is 'dating'

    Like Bob Jones 'free' office space , does no one in ACT do anything without a 'contra' anymore

  • Hard News: "Rubbish" is putting it politely,

    Acts pledge card lists number 13 Privatisation, where state business are sold where private firms can serve customers better.
    And where this works is ´practically all except Cuba North Korea'

    They will have to add US to the list

    Today's bailout is the big 3 car firms ( but not others who have US car plants) who get low interest taxpayer guaranteed loans of $25 bill.

  • Hard News: Consumer,

    Regarding O2 in the UK and their "unlimited" data plan for iphones

    Included Unlimited Wi-Fi and Web Bolt Ons for iPhone Customers only
    The Unlimited Wi-Fi and Web Bolt On is included at no extra cost for customers connecting or upgrading to any iPhone tariff until further notice. O2 reserves the right to withdraw or amend this offer at any time on reasonable notice. Participating customers will receive 30 days notice via text message if changes are made to their disadvantage. Excessive usage policy applies see Data Bolt Ons terms below.

    It waffles a bit , but excessive usage seems to be 3GB a month

    Considering they have a potential maket of 60 million for a similar size country to NZ, where an expensive regional network is built for 0.5 million people the prices dont seem to bad.

  • Hard News: Birthday Cheer for Ricky the…,

    Yawn...

    WILKIE (paragraph 1): The subtitle of this campaign biography could be: The Riddle of Al Gore. Why does a disciplined, earnest, intelligent man with high morals have, as the authors describe it, "an occasional propensity to enhance his role in events?" To believe that as a 20-year-old he contributed to Hubert H. Humphrey's acceptance speech at the 1968 Democratic convention? To claim that he was "shot at" in Vietnam when he never faced enemy fire? To expand his job description at The New York Times from copy boy to "newspaper trainee?" And, most famously, to pose as father of the Internet and role model for the protagonist of "Love Story?"
