    Is it true that Hager might be forced to reveal his source, because it's a book not news?

    I spell Deborah incorrectly on her page, I feel bad about it. It was not intentional. I hope she reads this, because apologizing on her blog would be inappropriate at this time.

    Lots of people spell my name with the ph. It’s flattering but incorrect.

    Back on thread…

    It’s charming how we’re helpfully trying to work out how the information was accessed, rather than what it shows. #geeks

    It’s like the large hadron collider. The engineering is huge.

  • Speaker: Why you should vote,

    Sounds good…..

    It looks like a punitive approach. Have a look at the health policy. See anything even acknowledging that alcohol consumption has a correlation with domestic violence. Do you see anything in the law and order policy you quoted from, that looks at, OGM I am about to sound like a bull buggering bastard, Women who abuse children, and the fate of those children? No - Because it’s not trendy to look the the compleat picture, better to look the other way. What about community mental health, that’s the part of the DHBs thats so badly funded, you will need to act out, to even get on the waiting list.

    The policy is more like something I would expect from ACT. Not much thought about the complex and diverse nature of domestic meltdowns. Its clearly very popular for the same reasons as getting tough on crime. Its attention grabbing syndical politics. What bothers me about it, is that by going down this Prime minister top down approach, is that people who actually have the expertise, will directed by buffoon politicians, like Kelvin Davis et al. And that’s if I believed for a minute, these people where going to lead by example.

    I am talking from experience here, but what I have seen in the field.

    Labour has no section for Disability.

    I have to bang on a bit more, just in case someone is listening, about how The Labour Party has been hugely vocal about domestic violence. but they have no policy’s that show any real interest in dealing with it. Please show me otherwise!

    It’s hard to work out what motivated all that vocal enthusiasm, that’s now gone quite. Did the Alcohol lobby have words or what…

    Not just the Middle East, but anywhere on the globe wherever you find conspiracy theorists who repackage themselves as scholars.

    I see what context you are talking in now.

    Because there people in the Middle East, who are fearful of religious people right now. And they are not being overly anxious ether.

    I think the Greens I know are probably too intelligent to draw a dick on Key’s face

    Thats not a dick. It's a long nose.
