  • Hard News: Terror panics and the war imperative,

    Please someone make the point that sending troops endangers New Zealanders traveling overseas, it effectively devalues our passports and the security they provide.

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    Of course the US has 'privatised' its consulate in another way - basically they charge you by the hour to visit them (or talk to them on the phone) - better have a credit card if you have a question - and be able to travel to Auckland to renew your passport .....

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    I’ve been a big fan of MetaFilter for years, but lately every page I go to on my phone has an ad for Crest Cleaning in it. Those who’ve read Dirty Politics will remember Crest were the cleaning company that used Slater (spit) as a front to vilely attack the cleaning company’s business organisation and to force cleaner’s wages for government contracts back down to minimum wage.

    Anyone else seeing it? any odea who I can complain to?

  • Hard News: Five further thoughts, in reply to Kyle Matthews,

    The majority of California’s energy is already provided for by solar power stations

    Not even close to that. In 2010 it was 53% Natural Gas, 14% from all renewables.

    I suspect the word "new" was missing from that first statement

    And it is changing quite fast - I was visiting a couple of weeks ago, a co-worker was proudly showing off his Chevy Volt and explained that he had installed solar panels, he sold daytime power to the utility at peak time prices and charged his car over night at far lower bulk rates ...

  • Hard News: A message from The Fabians,

    Don't forget that Hickey was the target of Slater's Dirty Politics smears .... certain people don't want independent economic analysis out there being consumed by the general public
