  • Legal Beagle: Crown appeals in criminal cases, in reply to mpledger,

    If I go and tell them to stop and they say bugger off than what do I do?

    Dial 111. Assault hasn't been made legal by this decision, has it?

    Please correct me if you have seen such fairness.

    No, as wonderful as the internet is, I think those of you actually in NZ are better placed to be the judge of that. I won't be back for another few months, so my view of what is happening is still rather limited.

    (look you can see the Greens in there)

    Really? A wheelbarrow of dirt, a log, a bucket of something being carried on someone's head, a cartload of grass (not even bothering to refine it into milk any more? Shipped all the cows overseas, too?)... I see a lot of extractive industries using the Stumbo bridge to ship NZ's natural resources overseas. And one person with a suitcase and another with a sack - recent graduates disappearing overseas? (hmmm.... sounds familiar.... ). And green fish looking on in surprise? Dismay?

    Back to the drawing board.

    It wasn't solicited as such.

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

    I look into the tree and see this fellow hanging in a seemingly impossible pose.

    Hager admitted he got the moving prisoner claim wrong in his current book and that he shouldn’t have included it.

    Got a link?

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    Now this kind of talk has me really worried:

    Prime Minister John Key yesterday hit back hard over the Dirty Politics allegations against him and his Government, warning that a hacker and the political left were "trying to take an election off New Zealanders".

    Did he just really spectacularly not fully think that through before he blurted it out, or.....? Trying not to read too much into it, but given the tendencies this government has shown, it's hard to shake visions of.... nah, let's not go there yet. Or perhaps Key has been the recipient of some shockingly bad advice. Or, I dunno.

    And:

    He also hit out at the media, saying that by reporting on Hager's book and the release of source material hacked from Slater's computer "you're effectively supporting illegal activity".

    Oh? And what has John Key been doing with his consistent refusal to take responsibility for anything or demand Judith Collins, among others, account for her actions?

    Or is this all simply the ravings of a seriously desperate man?

    I don't know, but I do know his comments as reported in that article scare me.

    and has failed conspicuously to detect actual threats in their area of concern (Rainbow Warrior bombings, Israeli passport fraud).

    Perhaps of tangential relevance.
