    The Zhang Heng Code
    The 'problem' may go deeper - Twyford may have lifted the lid on a millennia old Dynastic land grab plot!

    A new study has revealed that millions of modern Asian men have descended from 11 powerful dynastic leaders who lived up to 4,000 years ago, including Mongolian warlord Genghis Khan.
    The study from the University of Leicester examined the male-specific Y chromosome, which is passed from father to son, in more than 5,000 Asian men belonging to 127 populations.

    Obviously this will mean DNA testing before and after all land and house sales to curb this annexation by stealth!

    Standard issues...

    Hahahaha I instigated a Bayesians vs Frequentists comments battle!

    Do they, perhaps, need new flags to rally under, too?
    ...and what do the old ones look like?

    Much like the Labour or National voters id problem
    - how can we pick them on the street?

    Adamant, redux... flush, even...
    Twyford must be aiming for a position high up in Winston Peters' NZ First caucus...
    I'd always heard of Twyfords' rich history in China
    - but mostly of the vitreous sort, rather than vitriolic...

  • Speaker: The Bluff-it Budget,

    Quid pro quo vadis?
    Martin van Beynen nails Gerry Brownlee's lack of perspicuity.

    The potential conflicts or perceptions of conflicts presented by Fletcher sponsoring Brownlee's parties have been around for several years without a murmur from anyone, including the media.

  • Speaker: The Bluff-it Budget,

    parse the parcel...
    http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/business/the-rebuild/70084887/how-much-is-the-government-really-spending-to-fix-christchurch

    John McCrone in The Press takes a good look at just how much the Govt has spent - balanced against the numbers it trots out like martyrs.

    English crows about getting a 'surplus' - which is nothing more than meeting the 'vig' - when will he start on paying back the $80 billion mountain of cash he has borrowed in our name?
    What's the plan for that?
    Oh, time for a change of government, nevermind...

  • Speaker: The Bluff-it Budget,

    a house built of pricks… ya can’t budget!

    Nick Smith, it seems, is still in the pocket of those who happen to be pocketing big from the Auckland housing bubble.

    - and in unrelated news?:
    http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/70145729/govt-takes-back-52m-from-chch-housing

    The Government has diverted $52 million of funding meant to help Christchurch’s housing problem to Auckland.
    As part of the Christchurch Housing Accord, signed between the Government and the Christchurch City Council in September, the Crown agreed to invest $75m to construct 180 new homes on two council-owned sites in Sydenham.

    there’ll be mortar come, I’m sure…

    Plus: see the original accord agreement:
    http://www.mbie.govt.nz/what-we-do/housing/pdf-document-library/christchurch-housing-accord.pdf
    they have broken the 'no surprises' and 'prioritising' aspects already
    - but sadly, that's not really a surprise, I guess!

    Parisian street scene...
    Only two added elements:
    a street sign from Angouleme;
    and that darn cat parked itself...
    :- )
    (alright, and some levels tweaking)

    In Space, and Time ... no one can hear you scream!

    I got to this morning to discover that it had reverted all my changes and put all the old playlists back.
    Fucksake.

    I cant let you do that, Russ...

  • Speaker: Honest Bastards & Dishonest Cowards, in reply to izogi,

    That’s 80 years ago, so an election and parliament that’s not dominated by Blue versus Red opposing each other is beyond living memory for nearly everyone, but that doesn’t mean things can’t change again.

    Surely must be time for the the 'Bastards vs Complete Bastards' game to run its natural course...
    Look for the introduction of Moneytheism...
