    You know, it never occurred to me that Nico actually had a real name. I couldn't get beyond femme fatale....

    Yuk, I hope you just don't know what that means....
    But then perhaps that's why John Key likes him so much. :-S

    1% makes Act rather unpopular, thankfully.

    Perhaps Seymour could just get back on the ship...

    Bit more up to date...
    Loving this at the moment...

    Sound a bit like NZ's answer to Dylan, Mike Scorey. Wonder what he is up to now, must find out...

    MMP supports niche parties as well as big ones.

    Size doesn't matter, popularity does.

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race, in reply to Angela Hart,

    I think we had politicians who were trying to make this a better place,

    But the voters just wanted tax cuts and the supposed opportunity to get rich like John Key, suckers.

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race, in reply to izogi,

    My own argument for invoicing, even if agencies can find the money, would be that it turns a difficult-to-enforce law into a financial line that would have to show up on budgets, and have be explained in those terms to people who care about money.

    I have to agree with you there. The fact of the matter is that the trip to the ombudsman's office shouldn't be necessary, information requested through the OIA shouldn't be necessary. The information is ours to begin with, we, the public, own the public service, we have a right to know what they are doing on our behalf.

    eta..
    As Popbot says above, some in the public service appreciate this fact.
