Well for starters, the RWC is going to lose many millions of dollars, and is being underwritten by the government. So more money to pay people will mean we lose more.
I dont find that very compelling reasoning.
And who is this WE of which you speak? Is someone going to come and take my computer if the RWC loses more money?
And while I’m in Mr serious mode.
Did you twig what the event was about?
The outfit that volunteers, let me stress that VOLUNTEERS FOR THE RWC will be wearing.
This is supposed to be the money spinner for the country in 2011, fucking pay the people working on it. Instead of exploiting their time and effort by using some imagined rub off of the feelgood effect. Fuck, religions and sport…. in their day to day operation it’s hard to tell the difference.
Instead of, well you get to keep the Tshirt.
Your avatar is well chosen
Is it a weasel or something that Stoatally different?
Sorry couldn't help it

So Craig or others has a verdict be reached and I am persona non grata.
In your eyes, a left version of kiwibogians to be skimmed over with a hrumphff.
My “ebullitions of vulgar wit" dismissed and judged as not worthy of these lofty realms.
Its awright you dont need to reply, if silence in this direction is your chosen method of rebuttal.
But sir, I am not a homophobe and if you convict me of this crime in your mind, without ever having meet me. Because I wrote our PM minced as a model minces down a catwalk and I wouldnt even compare his strut to being an extra on Benny show, cause they were all very accomplished actors in the fine vaudevillian tradition.
Then you sir, are indulging in thought crimes worse than being a vulgarian.
Anyway you seemed to be so busy taking offence you missed the second part of my joke. Which alluded to the recent appearances on bloke radio when our esteemed PM told us which women he thought were HOT. And I certainly dont need the mental image of him in Bedroom mode.
Is this what we want to hear from our PM, I for one certainly dont.
And as I crudely pointed out, the time for partisanship is fast running out. There are monumental changes in front of out species and our planet, in part caused by the short sightedness of previous generations and their cravenness. This preys on my mind and it should on all our minds. And to see our elected leader playing up to a room full of people who are more likely to fit your description of homophobe than me.
Well all I can do is hide my disgust behind a weak joke, because I am powerless to do anything about it as an individual.
I hope it wasn't along those lines.
There was a line in there somewhere.
Who was trespassing on who's territory?
Your all grown up enough to make up your own minds.
If I require censure.
Im sure I will learn of it.
but I love Altman's films (well, the ones I've seen: ongoing project.
Three Women was one of my faves.
But I was looking for Craig. He seems to think Im a homophobe. And I was going to give him a big internet hug and say sorry.
Oh whats going on over here.
Hug still applies Craig.
I think Craig’s implying that you’re basically saying Key looked “a bit gay, and not in a good way”.
Not implying a damn thing, Kyle, I’m saying it.
I hope you think I look bit gay, but in a good way, when I put on my mince.
As for john key he didnt look good - my opinion - look if your gunna do it at least make it look good. And so it is like Benny Hill. And when I was a kid i loved Benny Hill. Ahh, youth, and then I found out. And cue the trombones.
Make of that what you will. Perhaps my mind is a sewer.......
I was just describing his walking style Craig.
Looked like mincing to me. How about strut, sound nicer to you does it?
So how I cant say use mincing in any other way that to describe the mashing of meat? Cause of the myriad of interpretations it may trigger in all minds?
And if a Labour PM Minced like that I would call it mincing.
FCS get off that partisan horse and grow up.
Self moderating you should try it.
And whats with bringing up Kiwilog?
Trying to say something? come on spit it out.
various spots around the House and bewail the lack of compulsory IQ testing (and a thorough psych assessment)
Could we start with the rest of the country first. I'd really like to know who the dumb and crazy ones area...well apart from the obvious ones.
And anyway why should pollies get all the fun.
Ok, so I like psych assessment.
Hands up who doesnt!
Oh Look here's our Prime Minister mincing down the catwalk
Doesnt he look HOT!
Liz H have you seen this?
