Most great “scoops” by gallery jouraists are fed to them. Their jobs simply don’t permit real, long-game investigation.
That's a cop out . How about they stay up a bit later and do some research. By the time their gossip goes to print the comments section that follows shortly after carries new info that has cause for good argument against what's printed thus rendering that gallery journo pointless. Chief Political Commentator my arse. Business Analysis. My arse. Tory, definitely.
That was what I thought.
Aren't hackers any good these days?
Does it matter any more?
Nope. Soundbites will beat you everytime.Anyone can be everyone.Perception beats all.
Idiots and wind, every time. No need to read anything significant into it, other than hoons will be hoons
.Ah!!!! Finally!!!The voice of reason.Vote Deborah.
Absolutely. Plus probably a bit to do with the big loudest fight in town being about Dotcom wanting to bring down Key and graffiti (possibly seen as not 'that bad" as it's just a bit of cardboard so German against Jew alterations being the fastest point to show dislike, as Steven Crawford suggested) being an expression for disaffected.Images get a quick response. Some are getting noticed more quickly than others. Point made.
However JK chose not to, allowing more breathing space for a damaging inflammatory meme that amounted to a convenient untruth.
Par for the course since about, coming on 6 years ago now. Had IMP not existed today, I suspect it would have been "the nasty greens" or "the looney left" JK was consistently inflaming untruths in the House which were repeated for media to take up on a regular basis. If that is just a bit of banter in politics then why is there any surprise as to where it leads to?
I thought Laila Harre said on Breakfast that Dotcom was doing a good job promoting youth getting out to vote, barely audible as Christie tried to talk over her at the same time as demanding it was her job to clarify. I didn't see the Key interview the day before, Does Christie talk over Key as he is meant to clarify what he was insinuating? He (for me) came across as being bloody rude. Why ask a question then talk over your guest?
A curious thing about political forums is how many participants seem unable or unwilling to discuss issues and only seem intent on trying to piss on people they disagree with or don’t like.
Not unwilling or unable, thing is you beat the same drum about how a different approach is not acceptable and you seem bothered that the guy funding a new Party is German. I believe some of you have decided way before the Internet Mana arrangement that You didn't like him and therefore the dislike has followed through to the Party Party, their alternative approach, and possibly the choice of people in the Party Party. Dotcom wants to help get rid of the Key Govt, (so do I) Mana definitely want to get rid of the Key Govt, the Party Party have formed to try make that happen. Key charges $1500 a plate, Labour sells raffle tickets, the Internet Mana Party have a donor who is fully supportive of trying to get rid of Key. Bring it on I say. Pete you carry on, and see how that goes for ya. Frankly I don't agree with you so carry on carrying on if that's what you want.
Oh .. get over it. The Nats would fail without The Tefloned one
Yes I'm over it . Pete, it's really fucking obvious you don't like , feel threatened, or would love to be a politician yourself. Fact is, Internet Mana are politicians and you didn't make it. Simple really, They are more effective than you. We geddit .You hope they fail. Have a wine. a beer a chill pill, wotevs. Bleating on and on and on is not helpful to you or any of us. You state you have friends, go share with them if you need to continuously repeat yourself. And I dont mean that in a bad way.
Week after week this Labour caucus shows just how fucking worthless they have become.
I don't think they are worthless but maybe they have lost their way. I think they are trying to please everyone without offending anyone. They could just accept they are not in it alone.
I think Internet Mana are making the other Parties (all of them) look rather old and out of date. My arguments with Davis by email had him repeating "I make no apologies..." I'm telling him my friends in his Electorate don't vote because "no one cares about them. They are not the farmers. One hopes they take views on board but it doesn't really feel that way. Hipkins is young. If he cant understand the reasons behind IMParty, he's not connecting. I've asked that he sees a bigger picture than just his conservative view. :) Thing is if we had a mash up of the Left leaning parties we could get a wonderful compromise for many.
Fuck John Key? No, thanks!
It's not a question Geoff. Its a statement, and proving quite effective today. Frankly I see a similar response to when I was a punk rocker in !978/9 in NZ and the same in OZ from then onwards. We could do nothing right. I found NWA to be considered controversial when I was listening to them too but I could feel what they meant through their lyrics. The audiences always responded with Fuck the Police!
