  • Speaker: Why we need to stop talking…, in reply to Angela Hart,

    Poll results depend on how you ask what you ask and who you ask.

    And nobody asked me ;)

  • Hard News: About Campbell Live, in reply to Rosemary McDonald,

    I do think opinion pieces are just that so have no concern for her assumptions about RNZ's restructure. I also found her apology for having a moment that she never intended to be heard a poor effort from an experienced radio/TV presenter. Completely unprofessional. Unlike the naive comment from Pebbles Hooper in her crass comment. I think though for Smalley, image (and a stereotypical one because of her comments) is more important than her wish for gender equality amongst her peers. I certainly don't like inequality but I think it comes in many forms and to pick her subject as Campbell gets a break after such a beating recently, could now also appear to have an ulterior motive. I mean ,why not complain when Henry was rehired after so much failure here and Oz? There may be too many white wealthy men around that pull strings in NZ and get the big jobs but she buys into it too, just by being there so in this dog eat dog world , yada yada yada.

    I see Rachel Smalley's upset about Campbell getting the RNZ role

    You mean Rachel Smalley,
    who called NZ women heifers and a bunch of Lardos?

    Feb 2009- the colour was created by smoke from the Australian bushfires occurring at the time. Beautiful, but poignant.

  • Speaker: Too much to swallow on the TPP, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    until November...

    This sums up my disapproval of the TPPA. Prof. Kelsey has been following it for some time
    The secrecy is undemocratic and that which seems to have been leaked about it, then the suggestions drip fed to media from National, all suggest there is nothing of value to NZ. The secrecy to me suggests nothing in this Pact benefits NZ so it must be crap. Therefore I disapprove. Our democracy is yet again under attack.

  • Hard News: Whakamomori: Raw, open and honest, in reply to steven crawford,

    Hi Steven. I asked my friend on Sunday if anything was in place for Kids at his School dealing with suicidal thoughts. He said they have a full time social worker who deals with that and she does have experience in that area.

  • Speaker: What I learned in Class: Should…, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    Aunty didn't live in Christchurch by any chance? When my brother was a Ford apprentice there a woman owner would bring her late 60s T-bird in for service

    Born and raised in CHCH but owned the T bird in Baton Rouge. Gran had the Mustang in her older years in CHCH and an Uncle recently located it still in the South Island. I may try get that one day, for sentimental reasons.

  • Speaker: What I learned in Class: Should…, in reply to steven crawford,

    Just to remind readers how bogans are cool with queer rockers too.

    So as to the title, “Should Labour go after the Bogan Vote?” I'd suggest yes, yes they should and while I'm at it, they should go after every vote (hard task for any Party). This is the only way we can get rid of National and after Serco, after Charter Schools, after selling our state assets, the manipulation of public opinion, the dishonesty, the complete lack of a moral compass, Bogans are just as important as anyone suffering this current Government. I join all to release their inner Bogan, who are many here, it seems, and say Fuck National and the horsepower they rode in on and claim back our country before it's too late.
    Oh and if anyone has a beef with Labour,may I suggest, advise them personally. Take the power of people to the source. I liked Stephen Judds punishment over his view of Labours behaviour whereby he hit them in the pocket until they do better.

    ETA, I have no idea how that is in reply to Mr Crawford. Ne'er mind
