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 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...
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.
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...
it's enough to make ya weep
or is it just a case of
Alliaceae through the looking glass?
Dodgy Pawer... or Dowdy Pager?
Paddy Gower puns
I'm liking that 'speaking truth to Gower' offering....
all gas and '-gaters'...
It makes no sense to just grab the gate part and tag it onto anything,
by that logic Nixon shoulda been caught out in a Watergate-gate scandal!
or 'plumber-gate' at least...
seems '-gaters' gonna gate, no matter what....
lazy trope shorthand be damned!
a canis warms
...leashed we forget!
