  • Speaker: Why I'm standing in Ilam,

    Key likes us to believe that he and National are “safe economic managers”.

    Why do arseholes in suits always think that about themselves?

  • Hard News: In The Green Room,

    The Clean rivers is a good idea, but full of cosy words and light on detail. Such an aim will run straight into real opposition from the dairy "industry". Who will see it as costing farmers money, and so prices will have to go up they will tell us. How do they plan to deal with this? New Zealand should move away from its dairy heavy exports Do they agree? How can we start to head down this road?

  • Hard News: Never mind the quality ...,

    Election commentary... yes well!
    A earner for some I guess
    Not much else to say for it.
    Jimmy Bolger gets a gig too... underwhelming

  • Hard News: We can do better than this, in reply to Craig Ranapia,

    But it’s such a small life, isn’t it?

    Short is a better adjective I think. Those who are indulging in this fuckery, that the Slater fiasco has revealed have small and evil lives. And that is the problem. They seem unable or unwilling to look past/outside of themselves.

  • Hard News: We can do better than this,

    the cynical side of politics is not new,

    No its not. But is this all we (I mean us with no influence, outside of casting a vote) can expect? Global warning is a fact. Yet we are lumbered with short-sighted self-serving people who just like being in charge and, it seems, will do anything to stay there.
    A system that revolves around money and doesnt go any further. Those human qualities or caring and co-operation, thinking long term for the welfare of all are slowly being sidelined. Its hard not to despair sometimes...

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics, in reply to izogi,

    fix the system

    Where do we start? There is so much wrong with our way of living on this planet much of it coming from our past and we just carry on as if the problem is to big to deal with.
    It's not.

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics, in reply to SHG,

    Gotta say, a totally unauthenticated email reproduced in a book after being supplied to the author by a totally anonymous source is hardly what I’d call “proof”.

    So are you going to read the book? Or just dismiss it out of hand

  • Hard News: Not doing justice, in reply to Pete George,

    Kim Dotcom promotes himself as founder and visionary of the Internet Party and holds a special position of ‘Visionary’ in their party organisation as per their published party rules.

    Been at work, I have a job. But man oh man! you must have scoured their literature to find that, ' cause I can't. Thats it I'm out, up at 5am tomorrow.

  • Hard News: Not doing justice,

    Have the visionary

    ? who's that.

    They have a potential problem in that having promoted and owned anti-Key rhetoric and actions they may now be perceived as associated with the actions of people who are independent of the party organisation.

    Perceptions are a funny things, never to be relied on. IMO

    When the Protocols of Zion are bought up it time to walk away.

  • Speaker: Why you should vote,

    we must also strive to have more “informed democrats”, as only well informed voters will likely make the right kinds of decisions

    Well it sounds right and the kind of thing we should all "strive" to do, But when they come out with lazy stuff like this...

    " it wasn't racist because a Chinese man told him the joke. " Guess who?

    And they are on an easy wicket for life Its hard to feel anything but resentment.
