  • Speaker: Naked Inside the Off-Ramp,

    David is dead long live the new David...
    David Shearer has resigned as Labour Party leader apparently!!

    The Oh Zone...

    It would be nice if our political journalists would stop being so bloody lazy and dream up a more appropriate metaphor.

    The Thorndon Sinkhole
    has a certain ring to it....


    Dunning the Dunne...

    And what’s with all the hating on Peter Dunne?

    He put his head above the parapet, and tried to sell himself as someone who cared, someone who might take a stand, and then just sold himself...

  • Capture: Two Tales of a City, in reply to Gudrun Gisela,

    John Key sold us out to the highest bidder.

    We can be 'airway spies'....

    Yon Dunne has a lean and hungry look…

    …his man Dunne selling his vote…

    Here is our man Dunne back in Canta in July, 1974, selling his ‘Presidential’ qualities to the proles …

  • Hard News: Market Wisdom, in reply to Russell Brown,

    very apped...

    “this is witch magic"

    Switchcraft, innit?


    you're soaking in it...

    they appear to be toy sized no matter...

    It's like the Viewmaster© effect
    or as if it's been 'Supermarionated',
    I'd tender...

    ...a framework that has never apprehended and convicted anyone and conspicuously failed to detect both the Rainbow Warrior bombings and, more recently, the Mossad passport fraud attempt?

    On the face of it, we obviously need someone to be watching our 'friends' more closely ...

  • Speaker: Naked Inside the Off-Ramp, in reply to linger,

    What a complete Cnut...

    Far from actually claiming omnipotence,
    Canute was demonstrating to his supporters
    that he wasn’t all-powerful.

    oops, I forgot that, when I used the analogy elsewhere.
    but it still makes a mockery of Key's 'I can foretell
    what future decision makers will do' stance
    because he can't - perception is everything...
    ... and wilful blindness can strike politicians!

    :- )

  • Hard News: Fluency, ease of manner - and…, in reply to Matthew Poole,

    Fuck I get sick of low-applied-intellect voters.

    I propose a WOF for voting, coupled with
    mandatory spot intellect-tread-depth tests...

  • Hard News: The GCSB Bill: eleventh-hour arguments,

    I’m sure they think that we have too much freedom as it is and that we all need to be kept an eye on for our own good

    and as our MPs debate The Inquiries Bill,
    Greens Fear Consequences Of Inquiries Bill
    fair enough too, when our 'good buddies' over in 'the land of the free'© are heading down the path of forcing journalists to reveal sources...

  • Up Front: The Missing Stair and the…,

    for the ambience chasers...
    here's an uninterrupted flight
    perhaps a riser to bait...
    I always liked the idea of Oblique Strategies and
    the missing stair explains the existence of the Obtuse Strategy card sets

    1: Cultivate the disreputable
    2: Lie gratuitously
    3: Argue extravagantly over minutiae
    4: Blame the innocent
    5: Solve the wrong problem
    6: Construct the trivial sturdy, the crucial shoddy
    7: Give misleading directions
    8: Damn with faint praise
    9: Make a virtue of waste, a vice of thrift
    10: Play dumb... etc
