  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    ’neoilogism’?
    Susie Ferguson and her writers must be credited with a starter for ‘Word of the Year’ describing someone as having been slatered on the Whaleoil website’…
    (or my mishearing her)
    ;- )

  • Hard News: The Big Bang, in reply to Geoff Willmott,

    Thanks...
    reading this gave me the unique feeling of
    'Being Dan Carter' and what might flicker
    thru his brain milliseconds before the kick...

    speaking of kicks...
    Have Richie, Steve & the ABs management
    asked John Key to apologise for
    implying that cheating by 'hacking'
    or 'peering by accident' into an opponents
    website is something they would do,
    let alone sporting behaviour?

    infrastructure infra dig...

    This is quality of the roads we have to put up with,
    these roads cost lives.

    Roads of National Impotence
    -----------------Vs -----------------
    Roads of Notional Importance

    Keep on trucking...

  • Hard News: The Big Bang,

    Infernal combustion...
    I can't say I'm that keen on those sideline flamethrowers either...
    (and that's from the couch at home!)
    Maybe it's only Crusaders games?

  • Hard News: The Big Bang,

    Jonathan Livingston, I presume?
    Internet Mana folk need to take their jackets off!
    - otherwise some party called 'tern ANA' is gonna get a lot of needless exposure...

  • Speaker: If political parties were beer ...,

    ...more bliss...
    I'm thinking Rheineck for Dotcom's party rather than 'Dunne-over-the-hill'
    - sounds german and supports local music?
    ...and it's really not that bad!

    Do any of the others have a good head ?
    are they frothy or flat?
    National we know is 'on tap' through Ede and Slater
    while Labour is still 'flagon' in the polls...

    I suppose Green Man was too obvious
    for The Greens (too gender specific?)

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming,

    ""Breaking News: Richie McCaw just texted and said
    'Yes, you can'," he said with a roar."

    One wonders what the question was that Key asked Richie?
    Maybe something like - "Richie, can I mention your name at my party's campaign launch?

    or maybe something deeper like:
    "Richie, If I'm standing in a tackle can I go for the ball?"

    Context is everything!
    especially with an ambiguous message...

    The Nats are only as strong as their weakest link
    perhaps they should more correctly be called 'Team Collins'
    even if she is spending the game on the sidelines, in the sin-bin...

    This comment was also placed at that Stuff site

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming, in reply to James George,

    The graphics mob undertook projects for other community organisations who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to...

    This is all good stuff, and stuff that needs to be done cyclically - but always seems to be done sporadically and then left fallow until someone realises it isn't happening and should be - wheel gets reinvented (again)...

    Getting young people to work cooperatively (amongst themselves and the community) with a range of fledgling skills creates opportunities, networks and confidence, hell, even a future...

    Cities/communities just need to give them space, time and respect...

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I do think he could have left out John Key altogether.

    At least he is honest, if he wasn't saying it out loud it would still be tacitly understood and known as a major motivation for Dotcom's tilt at Parliament...
    (even if it does look petty and risk getting in the way of his own party ...)

    One wishes Key would cut through the crap and reveal his true motivations!
    (though Cam's 'Porkery' gives a glimpse of National's world-view...)

    Morning Report is testing my capacity for civilised behaviour - Espiner is being particularly tone deaf and simplistic and Key gutlessly backing off from the Collins question, stressed our cats with my swearing at the radio!

  • Hard News: Never mind the quality ..., in reply to Michael Savidge,

    Such a flaccid cox…

    well, as I was going for meta-foreplay
    I should have said 'calling the stroke...'
    ;- )

    ...but seriously, I found this photo from the future, it's of National's Rowing Eight (+cox) after Key sold the 'shell' out from under them and left them high and dry...
    ...honest!
    ;- 0
