  • Hard News: Poll Day 2: Queasy,

    Journalist as the star - Gower etc. How very very sad. Grow the fk up and get some integrity. You're a journalist for gods sake do and be proud of your job. The lime light aspect is I would have thought an unavoidable occupational hazard. In the world of criminal barristers for example the late Greg King was very very uninterested in the 'star' aspect of his profile work. Rather, he was intensely focused on his craft, which is why he was one of the better criminal defence advocates this country has seen in some years.
    And agree, tv news is becoming a pretty difficult watch. Campbell Live excepted.

  • Hard News: What Hekia Parata actually said, in reply to Andre,

    So true. Depressing how disconnected the populace would seem to be - given as you say, current polling - essentially middle NZ doesn't seem to care to much about er .. anything, house mortgages notwithstanding. Kind of depressing. Engaging with this ludicrous Minister of Education and policy ? Nah not interested.

  • Hard News: Game Lorde,

    Wow -- so was it kind of like seeing the Sex Pistols at the 100 club London in 1976 ?I hear that was a pretty darn bristly gig, though JL was 19 at that show so a few years older than the Lorde.

  • Hard News: Fluency, ease of manner - and…,

    Yes nicely broken down Russell. I agree I think Shearer/Labour are in trouble on that very front. Plus when Key needs to, he'll disingenuously bend the truth to suit his argument, and he needs an opponent who is quickfire able to call him on that. I actually think Labour at this point need a new leader, fast. Gift of the gab and a very sharp train of thought are essential and basic prerequisites in a leading politician. Lovely as Shearer is, those gifts he does not have.
