  • Hard News: The Boom Crash,

    Won't someone think of the children? after all if they'll be spending all their money on real estate and none on taxes to support us in our dotage, it's not going to be good..

    Really I blame corporatised governments, ones that see no benefit in thinking a decade or two ahead and value short term monetary measurements over long term social good.

    Well that and the inability to see beyond the edges of Auckland and see that Auckland's property market is starving the rest of the country of investment capital - if you want a cheap house, less traffic, a more relaxed lifestyle, fewer dirty politics, and none of the Auckland part of the Nats and their shenanigans we all have it right here, anywhere else but there. I know it's usually a joke but rumblings of succession seem to have grown recently, those halfway funny jokes about cutting the cable and letting that fish float away seem to happen more often these days.

    Obviously Key is now a witness in this case, I look forward to the police raid of his office where they take away all his phones and computers

    Of course it's possible that that someone called the PM and not John Key ....

    My favourite ODT headline was "Police stoned during IRA raid" I always wondered how they got that past the powers that be

    I was going to propose an ex-national MP/ex-All Black who seems to be at a loose end for the killer robot job but then realised that the fix was in and Bridges obviously already has a candidate in mind

    Oh you're right, my apology - it was tagged "Tom Scott and others" with no additional credit

    Of course the next question should be "how many tines have employees of the PM's office (including Ede) have been contacted by Slater (spit) in the past 4 years? And how many times have they contacted him?"

  • Hard News: The Hager saga continues,

    I think one of the big problems with the bailout was that it didn't come with consequences for those who had caused the problem in the first place, this meant that no one really learned anything, no object lessons were made for the next generation of money managers

    Equally the politicians didn't undo the mistakes they had made - IMHO the Glass–Steagall act should have been passed again as a prudent measure that had kept things running smoothlyish for the past 80 years
