    Speak for your self.

    Just wanted to say only priests and politicians think they can speak for everyone.

  • Hard News: The Death of Evidence,

    Speak for your self

    Oh we all do

    And before you accuse me of not knowing what pleasure is and being all ascetic

    Ah, the pre-emptive strike, a well known tactic of those who take themselves too seriously .... at times.
    You didnt see the sarcasm tag then, I can capitalise them next time if thats helpful.

    And would you face death puffing on a ciggie, slurping a single malt.
    I dont know if you and Dennis Potter are in the same class. But you can prove me wrong, I welcome it.

  • Hard News: The Death of Evidence,

    <sarc on>

    The problem in drug policy is now exclusively political. And people will die because of that.

    Politicians making the world a safer place for fat christians worried about being murdered in their sleep one policy at a time.

    the unifying values of New Zealand society.

    Hey who left those lying around for shonkey to bash us over the head with.
    You've been told about this before.

    Ritalin.
    Combined with Viagara

    Sounds like Simon Power had some of that on Friday.
    Symptoms: grandstanding with out of control mouth, a permanent hard on looking for a place to stick it.

    a reefer can equal several ciggies in terms of harm done to the lungs......killing your liver with a half bottle of a nice Sauvignon

    Always with the negative. While yer lungs and liver say no, yer brain says yes much much louder. <Sarc over>
    Dennis Potter come back, I loved watching him smoke on the tele talking about death Oh so calmly and with great dignity.

  • Hard News: Start with your conclusion,

    must be all just cock-ups

    The end result was a cock-up certainly, and because of false certainty on the part of those who colluded they set in motion chains of events which they thought they could predict with that same certainty.
    Only to be proved wrong.
    What's that saying "Life makes liars of us all"

    Unbridled certainty is the problem, and those in positions of power and influence are easy prey to their own human weakness's which power does not make them immune from.
    So Ian Wishart with his wacko liberal/Soros conspiracy theories is wrong. And if those with influence in this debate grab hold of his arguments they will commit mistakes that, if they have a conscience, they will regret.
    The caveat, of course, is they may not see it that way and their conscience may never trouble them.

  • Hard News: Start with your conclusion,

    It hurts my eyes to read some of the nonsense Wishart dribbles.
    So I'll read it at my leisure. Thanks.
    At a glance, he hijacks genuine concerns for his own narrative at one point, and uses Paul Ellis' story pointing to conclusions I wouldn't draw from my quick reading.

  • Cracker: Go Figure,

    Ratings are a lot like God. Not that they decide who lives and who dies,

    Although they have consigned a few people to wander in the wilderness. I think a cream pie in the face is a much better punishment for bad programming blunders based on demographics.

    Other than that must say you are doing a fine job. Carry on.

  • Cracker: Of Racks and Ratings,

    but 30,000 people have been back for a second look on our website.. go figure if it isn't what people want to watch....

    Hmm wonder what section of the population that 30,000 came from. Just wondering out loud only got one leg of ma judgeypants on.

  • Cracker: Of Racks and Ratings,

    Though if you don't have Sky you may miss it.

    Ya see there's the rub, my budget, and unavailable in your area.
    Oh the iniquities of the digital age.
    If I give Sky a dollar a week can I just have the one show?
    Thats sounds pathetic, honestly, I'll survive.

  • Random Play: Pauly Fuemana: How . . . sad,

    Wow dead at 40. That is tragic.
    Condolences and best wishes to the family and friends.
    I hope they will one day be able to let someone share the story of these brothers with the a wider audience.
    I hope their grief is not too unbearable.
    Because of that one song they are in our hearts.
