    St Nicky…. wonder worder

    hageraphobia

    I came up with hageriography some time ago,
    which is writing about bad people
    (as opposed to hagiography, natch)

    TPPA ... an overwhelming majority of kiwis do not want this agreement.

    Uncle John knows what's best for us ...

    the Late Show...

    It really must be silly season.

    The fact that Key still thinks he can rely on his memory says it all.
    That, and the fact that they pushed through a Draconian Bill to increase the SIS's powers under urgency just so they could clear the decks for their annual 'open mic comedy' day - er, adjournment debate
    Maybe they really are Muppets - the urge to be comedians seems to dwarf any will to run the country properly....
    Still it could have been worse, Key could have been there!

    It’s not usual to hear a minister saying,
    ” Oh we’ll give it a bash but if it doesn’t work we’ll dump it”

    INCIS anyone?
    ...and maybe Novopay and the Joint Border Management System (JBMS)
    some time soon?

    I haven't heard much about the IRD's $1.5 billion computer system upgrade, lately, either...

    It’s effectively impossible to do proper correlation vs causation experiments with macroeconomics.

    If only we had something like a World Bank that would look into this sort of thing with no strings attached...
    oh, hang on!

    Speaking of inequality...
    ..Happy Human Rights Day everyone!

    This year’s slogan, Human Rights 365, encompasses the idea that every day is Human Rights Day. It celebrates the fundamental proposition in the Universal Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the full range of human rights, that human rights belong equally to each of us and bind us together as a global community with the same ideals and values.

    up, up and a whey...

    growth
    What does that word really mean?????

    I think it's what milk is supposed to promote...
    meanwhile they continue to use milk as an economic lubricant
    (which is all money is anyway)...

    for some 'growth' is maturation,
    for others it's a tumour.

    Farmgate scandal?
    I wonder how the almost halving of Fonterra's milk price to $4.70 per kilo (from last years $8.40) will impact local communities and the country in general?

    Time to put some the few eggs left in another basket methinks...

    Alliaceae through the looking glass?

    Dodgy Pawer... or Dowdy Pager?

    Paddy Gower puns

    I'm liking that 'speaking truth to Gower' offering....
