    The whiskey will taste very, very, very good to Winston Peters tonight.

  • Hard News: Didn't see that coming,

    Any ideas why Matthew Hooton has been so open in his calls to sack Collins ? Has he had a falling-out with some of the Nats and their mates ?

    I'd have thought he'd toed the party line, but he's made repeated calls.

  • Hard News: Never mind the quality ..., in reply to Craig Ranapia,

    Craig, thanks for clarifying that. It amazes me that Slater has kept his grudge for so long and is simply unable to respect a basic democratic process.

    I'd assumed there'd been some sort of major incident between them and / or their friends, but Slater really is being a sore loser if that's what it's all about.

    Why does Slater and his cabal so dislike Michelle Boag so much ? Any particular reason, or is it purely a clash if personalities ?

    The UBS's display of Dirty Politics has a great gimmick: a pile of sick-bags and a sign saying "FREE SICK-BAG with Dirty Politics (in case a sense of nausea over-whelms you !)."

    National's campaign launch is this Sunday. I wouldn't be surprised if @whaledump releases more e-mails either just before or after Key's speech, in order to take any gloss off it and to keep the pressure on.

  • Hard News: We can do better than this,

    Considering his overt, long-standing backing of the Nats, Mike Hosking's e-mails in recent years' would make interesting reading too, given recent revelations.

    As an aside, I suppose it's too early for me to nominate "dirty" as the PA word-of-the-year ?

    If National win the election, Key's in a real Catch-22 situation with Collins. If he grows a pair and demotes here, he then runs the risk of her spitting the dummy and attempting to replace him sooner or later. But if he doesn't demote here, then he'll have to carry on fobbing off questions over her integrity.
