  • Island Life: Key and the 'nesians,

    You have to be fair - Key may be responsible for us not getting our fibre yet, but I don't think we can blame him for whatever happens in Wellington when you take off your socks

    Bevan - thanks for the link - I too was offended - but more because that having just turned 50 I had suddenly being included in NZFirst prime demographic - way to get people to vote for you, tell them they're "old"

    James: originally I was more referring to a metaphorical winter of the political soul - predicted by 3 days of actual snow here just prior to election day

    I am happily double glazed and batted to the hilt and laugh at the climate change deniers who can't decide if it's getting hotter or colder but do know it isn't doing what the other guys say

    Tamsin - I got that same weird letter - I swear John Key wasn't hiding in my cellar - I think they'd outsourced writing that one to some nigerian spammer

    I like the idea of shorter disclosure deadlines - hell they could set up a web page, campaigns could type in the information whenever they cash a cheque, it would be published in seconds

    After all the whole point is that there should be no secrets

    remember I predicted 3 years of winter ..... (mind you it's a lovely sunny day to day, I can see right out to the horizon .... but it feels like winter)

    yeah, I haven't seen them either, and I did leave the car in the street so they could work - maybe they'll get done today

  • Hard News: And meanwhile ...,

    I think Judith's recent falling into bed with big music leaving ISPs in a legally dubious position pissed a lot of people off a lot

  • Island Life: Let's be Frank,

    I was wondering about specials too - especially with this rush to enthrone a govt - shouldn't we wait until they're counted?- I wonder what happens if it turns out that something really does change because of them? (ooh look all the people in rest homes voted for Winnie, and here are the student's votes: Labour and the Greens got few more seats too) does someone at Elections NZ have a quiet word in the GG's ear suggesting he wait for the finals

  • Random Play: The End is Nigh . . . Again?,

    Rich - I remember another TV miniseries with a similar plot "Whoops Apocalypse!" - staring John Cleese - it was something that never ever ever played in the US - the ending was the same.
