  • Hard News: Be careful what you wish for, in reply to Joe Boden,

    I’m a currently very depressed American who is (bizarrely) looking like a bit of a genius for living overseas for the past 19 years (14 here in NZ). I have no plans to return there.

    My (american) partner's reaction this morning was "we don't ever have to go back do we", followed by a "but my Mom lives there"

    If Hillary doesn't rush out and use the rest of her money to build a giant bully pulpit for Elizabeth Warren I'll be really pissed - if ever there was a time to have people able to speak truth to power it is now

  • Hard News: Be careful what you wish for,

    I can't decide - is it:

    "not my leader of the free world"

    or is it:

    "not the leader of my free world"

    I'm sort of leaning to the 2nd one

    I don't always see eye to eye with Tremain's cartoons but he does often enough hit one out of the park, and will worry an issue to death which is more than a l.ot of journalists will do these days

  • Legal Beagle: Just get the App, already, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    Oh I don't disagree it's prudent, I think they're completely within their rights to ban them for safety reasons, I just don't think that the FAA has any authority in NZ - legal or moral for that matter

    Slightly off topic, but I hear the warnings from the “Federal Aviation Administration” that air NZ is running about Note 7s on domestic flights …. Is it that the NZ CAA missing in action here and ANZ just making do? Or does the FAA actually have some legal authority in NZ? Or maybe just TPPA come early?

  • Legal Beagle: Voting in an STV election, in reply to Steve Todd,

    I’m going to let you into a little secret. As you probably know, I rank-ordered 13 out of the 20 Capital and Coast DHB candidates

    lucky you, the Nats took away my right to elect my local DHB this year

  • Legal Beagle: Voting in an STV election, in reply to izogi,

    Given most people out there seem to compare this with FPP, claiming that FPP is more simple (and therefore better), I think it needs to be pointed out that FPP also results in votes being thrown away, except that it happens immediately for everyone whose first choice doesn’t get elected.

    yes exactly
