  • Hard News: Sorting out our thinking on drugs,

    Lawless bud substitute...
    Watching Dunne do the 'avoid dance' on Campbell Live was just as 'extraordinarily depressing' as he said he found the whole shopping centre - the 'pretty unsavoury' (to use Dunne's words again) state of which was roundly placed, by locals, on the existence of the Highs shop and its customers ...

    I feel Dunne equivocates when he says Councils came to Government for the power to do something about these shops - A need due to the vacuum of real leadership on the issue at a Government level...

    He effectively blames the 'legally lost' souls for their weakness - sorry Peter but not everyone has your steely self control - and those are the people laws are supposed to protect aren't they?

    His kneejerk 'cyanide' analogy is risible, and speaks volumes about his disengagement from reality.

    I guess there's a Highs shop in the Ohariu Electorate
    - with that kind of foot traffic maybe it could be a polling booth!

    But thanks for all the fish...
    As he doesn't fully complete 9 years or 3 terms as an MP, does he still qualify for the Parliamentary lifetime pension?
    Or has Maneuverer McCully saved the taxpayer a bundle there?

    Mr E?

    I'll drink to that!

    Cause Bud is better.
    Even Peter Dunne knows that

    Why can't Dunne see the tax implications?
    Didn't he used to be Minister of Revenue?

    On the evidence tonight
    Give the people what they want
    less random factors
    more control
    and take the tax

    what does the pharmacological levy accrue at the moment?

    and from alcohol / tobacco?

    Market affordable
    marijuana as :
    Levytation - Let the Good Tithes Roll!
    Fiscal EXcises - Recharge your imagination...
    Duty Calls - The Customs always right
    or even
    Green Fee - Bunker down for the afternoon..

    Win! Win!
    I tell you...

    Based on that a savvy 'Highs' manufacturer would be looking for a celebrity tie-in, and donating half the profits to TV3's Greta Garbo Home For Wayward Boys and Girls, or some such...
    aaah legitimacy.

    Graham Norton doing an infomercial about Kiwi wine.

    I know, a crushing metaphor.....
    I'm still waiting for them to acknowledge that The Graham Norton Show is a TV3 property - transparency cuts through all things Mr Campbell.

    the discomfit zone
    Dunne squirms on Campbell Live in Naenae - and he says he hates the shopping centre that someone else has just said has been ruined by the 'highs' shop - just another adverse reaction...

    Raylan meets Lovejoy

    The whole deadwood discussion seems like an unhelpful distraction...

    That's funny, there was always lots of swearing and violence to liven things up when it was on the telly... but yes, it was distracting.

    NSFW, Children, sheltered adults or in front of horses...

    Maimai Vice II

    It seems well past time for Mallard to move on.

    Would it be churlish (or even actionable) to note then,
    the irony of Duck Season opening on May Day?

    I think someone already got
    the Northern Shoveler,
    Shelduck'll be right
    and Paradise is next!

    The buckshot stops where?
