  • Hard News: All right, then – take me to Rio,

    Ignore this - well done Lisa Carrington.
    I got confused by the interactive graphic in this story

    I thought they'd cloned her for the race - but it seems to be a league table of past victories...

    Bidding, a due...
    The only result I can see is that the market might be flooded with cheaply auctioned-off Swiss Army knives* and Leatherman© tools and other heirloom knives, confiscated at embarkation? (or are those Airline responsibilities, too?)
    ...and possibly a Nuk Korako 'auction figure' toy!

    The Nats would do well to put the 'Baggage of the Left' behind them...

    *would a massive tide of these be called a 'Spring Victorinox'?

    I want to know what a figurative man is …

    I'm sure that a figure-eightive man is probably an ice skater,
    but it gets thinner the further I get from the shore...

    Christchurch International Airport has denied "blocking" a computer application used by people seeking rides with cut price taxi service Uber​.
    The complaint was made by an Uber driver.
    Airport spokeswoman Yvonne Densem said her company was in talks with Uber which she said ​"is not collecting passengers from the airport".
    Uber confirmed it won't pick up passengers but said they could walk off the property and call a driver

    Carbon cop-outs…

    Motorists live in this fantasy place where there’s infinite oil that can be burned with no consequences…

    Just read this book about a very possible future with rationed water too…
    …well worth a look.

    Two taxi stories in The Press today – one with two men robbing a driver and one where it looks like taxi drivers took Ecan (and people with mobility issues ultimately) for a ride…

    There’s no sense of fare play, or fare pay, it seems down here.

  • Hard News: Stop acting like the law is…,

    I got the impression that Key was espousing his personal position, or that of the caucus coterie, which is a very small sample and not (as you point out) in line with the wishes of the people of the country, including a compelling number of National voters.
    Key doesn't get to govern based on his own wishes - has anyone explained that to him properly.
