I have a lot of time for David Parker, he's prepared to make the hard calls because they need to be done, not because they are politically expedient.
Having had a coupla long and wide-ranging conversations with him recently.
I trust him...

He has the feel of old school Labour and of someone who's ready to 'muck in' as needed to make things happen.
Labour needs a few more like him.

as you were - Woosh seems to be back up again
But I think I'll be shopping around for a provider that doesn't realise it had a problem at the weekend until someone shows up at work on monday.

drums sampled in de la soul’s ‘The Magic Number’
1977 British talkfest on Punk!
The King is dead!
Designer David King has died, aged 74.
and also noted in the NY Times
remembered for his Hendrix and Who covers as well as Arthur Brown – he helped redesign The UK Sunday Times and did posters for Rock against Racism and anti-Nazi causes – he also amassed a huge collection of soviet propaganda art.
Long live the King's work...
I read the news today, oh boy!
In the new news environment this is a 'Sports story'!!

The family of All Black legend Sir Colin Meads is shaken after one of Sir Colin's grandchildren was charged with murder over the killing of a man involved in the Gold Coast drug trade.
