Good call on the radio live thang. There is something about that station that
gives me the heebi geebies.
Go the b.
And. At the dubwise central inc mansion they have this amazing pizza its fresh its gritty and it's so tasty it does tricks. Unreal. Plus, surround around sound on the big screen tv, like the Imax . What a mansion, a cloud within a cloud.
I’d forgotten the pace and intensity of Westminister PMQs on a big day. David Cameron was reckoned to have been rattled. I thought he did pretty well. I couldn’t escape the thought that our own Prime Minister would have been melted to a puddle in the first 10 minutes.
So true. Depressingly true.
Richard Worth was in Parliament for ~10 years. Rodney's been there ~14 years. It's more, but the difference ain't great.
But what I'm not getting is how Epsom voters vote Act presumably as a 'strategy' vote or so they say, without actually owning the vote.You're voting Act for gods sake !!! Thereby pushing for at least one, probably more Act MPs to make it into parliament,likely government . This is the party for example that as a policy plank flatly reject the almost universally accepted scientific position on human caused global warming ??? Bizarre --- in many ways they are miles to the right of National .
There in lies the difference between a Green voter and an Act voter --- almost all that vote Green support many of that party's policys . I really don't undestand an Act strategic voter at all . It just seems super urban wealthy conservative and super lame.
And no I would not call Epsom an 'urban liberal electorate'.
Rick being busted has not, of course, stopped them being pot smokers. And all this guff about whether Rick has, in the judge's view, "rehabilitated" or not is absurd. He's a 62 year-old musician who smokes pot. What exactly is he rehabilitating from?
A lot of that is Defence lawyer speak. On the books cannabis is illegal, in attempt to persuade the sentencing Justice to give Home D which Bryant was right on the cusp of potentially getting, one has to show the Sentencer that assn with said illegal substance is diminishing, - kinda standard. I would say the sole reason he did not recieve Home D were his previous cannabis convictions, in particular his conviction for previously supplying cannabis - In many respects the Justice's hands were tied by relevant case law precedent. There is a massive difference in terms of sentencing direction between using cannabis,and whoooah ..dealing cannabis .
'not at all. there needs to be:
a) a movement away from naturopathy
b) a reimagining of policy. '
Huh ? Or more simply, you don't support much of current green party policy ?,Or maybe you're alluding to the - woolly jumper,folky image. Think you'll find, particularly with Russell Norman on board that's long gone.
'have voted Labour forever. not this time round. they're just too bloody useless for words.'
Greens maybe ? Russell Norman seems currently to be very, on the job.
A huge call - but I think the Double Happys were, are still, my fav ever nz band. Yep, for me they beat The Clean. Those nights back in '82, '83 at the Oriental in Dunedin, as a 19 year old. Wow . And as for Randolphs going home, sheesh . An amazing time to be young . So glad I was there .
My pal David Kilgour put me on to this ---- its old but awesome, I keep playing it over and over
Ha, good point Ben . Too tired , its Friday after all .
