    I noticed that when Key was giving his statement to the Nation concerning the resignation of one Judy Colons that he was devoid of necktie, a deshevelled demeanor was noticeable. One wonders whether the supposed hold that Colon had over the late PM was that she was the holder of the tie rack, an obscure medieval position held by powerful ladies of the night. We have all heard the Shakespearian voicings of the Scottish play in whit many have observed the wiccan trio which are heard to song ” Hubble Bubble tie and trouble” us making one wonder about the origins of Ms Colon’s hold over the Minister sub prime.

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    There is little point in discussing the real meaning of words as language changes and so with it, so do meanings. For instance, the word “nice” used to mean idiot back in the 15 th century, trust me, its true but I suspect that nice Mr Key would repudiate that cromulantly.

    Ahem, Key, Collins, perhaps you should read a dictionary sometime.

    Refute
    rɪˈfjuːt
    verb
    prove (a statement or theory) to be wrong or false; disprove.
    “these claims have not been convincingly refuted”
    Ya can't just say it.

    So there I was, looking forward to "Would I lie to You" when up pops John Jey. Damn it Julie Christie, I thought, you and your reality TV shows.

    Even the blood doesn’t trickle down with this one, Key to a tee Siphonaptera. more precisely, Pulex irritans.

    He invented “Fuck John Key!” too, just quietly.

    Indignant splutter..... I claim prior use, I have been saying that for over 6 years.

    No, as wonderful as the internet is, I think those of you actually in NZ are better placed to be the judge of that.

    Any takers on that? I still can't find any evidence of the Commission rattling any cages on the Right. Could it be they are clean as the proverbial whistle or is their boss glowering in their direction?.

  • Hard News: UPDATED: Media Take: Election…, in reply to Chris Waugh,

    Nor does it read as such. It’s much more “this is what I’ve been doing” than “vote for me!”

    It seems to me and I think this needs closer attention, that if the material is coming from a left leaning site/person then the Electoral Commission gets their heckles up and wags the waggyfinger. I see no such thing pertaining to right whingers. Please correct me if you have seen such fairness.
    I suppose you could, at a pinch, say stating support for the incumbent is doing nothing, nothing to see here, just keeping things the way they are, is not advertising, as opposed to... "new, improved, fairer, more shiny Cunliffe, removes Whale Oil Stains in a single wipe" which would be seen as an ad.

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming,

    Best Quiz name I came across was “Crouching Cider, Hidden Flagon” much more imaginative and original than “Ream Key”
    Damn, a typo. Of course I mean "Team Key" I really must get around to fixing that one day.

  • Speaker: If political parties were beer ..., in reply to Annon_sorry,

    I would have gone for Steinlarger for the Nats, solidly corporate and once the controlled environment breaks down and it reaches room temperature the gloss goes off the taste and it tastes like Whale Piss.

    attended by close to 50% women.

    I have met some of those 50% women.
    And here is one of them... literally...

    Had to post that... had me in stitches.
