    It would appear JC cared too much as suspected by many of us who believed he upset the Government and its lackeys in the top jobs.Let's face it.Everything is in place now for John Key, who is influencing everything. Freedom of expression as long as he approves.

    The show's ongoing coverage of Pike River, where 29 men died in a 2010 explosion at a West Coast coal mine, was specifically singled out by management as having led to viewer "fatigue".

  • Hard News: 2015: The Budget of what?, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    I think there is a plan for a more sophisticated system where companies will report payroll to IRD in realtime and be issued adjustments. (There is also a privacy issue where you might not want one employer to know about your side job and how much they pay you) .

    Winz ,who insisted my friend had a certain amount of work ,which, when the holiday season finished, also became sporadic, made her ring them weekly so they didn't give her undeserved money, which is taxed, so that is one way to determine income with adjustments.

  • Up Front: Stand for... Something, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    The above is a bizarre batshit crazy scenario, but honestly is it more bizarre than using Slater to tar your opponents?

    I'm behind your scenario 100% but then you also know I'm probably batshit crazy meself. Still, sounds textbook to me. Once this Govt. started to unravel, everything else has fallen into line. Hager cemented many of my views as well. I don't think he is batshit crazy.

  • Up Front: Stand for... Something, in reply to Penny Ashton,

    I just want to say I am disappointed in these comments. Nothing but polite, erudite, intelligent discussion. What the fuck is the internet coming to.

    Some of us went to school to learn . Unlike Geoff Lealand , some of us even knew what the Flag looked like. welcome to PAS Girl. :)

  • Hard News: Synthetic cannabis: it just…, in reply to Alfie,

    Bowden admits he has made millions out of synthetics which surely raises questions about the liquidation. And he's the last person in the world I'd want to see making money out of weed.

    Why? Yes he has has some success. Then yes he has had the Govt curb all that success. Why would you want to see him fail at having a successful business that encourages responsible use and crowd sourcing responsible use and knowledge?

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    Now this takes the cake. National will get your vote

    The colour blue is used to illustrate desirable behaviour such as achievement and self-actualisation, whereas red and green represent negative behaviours like dependence,

    Subliminal or what?
    I have one word for this Govt...

    and you'd probably end up with mellower prisons as well! –

    In my past ,on visits to Rangipo, the saying went, " a stoned prison is a good prison" and that was from the screws point of view.

    I think taking the commerce out of ganja growing would take the criminality out of it as well.

    There would still be a market, just like there is in garden vegetables. But it would certainly help with the criminality part.

    I've been privileged to do my own study with regards Pot.Commerce, the green dollar economy has benefits for many regions and of those I surveyed, said they'd be happy if the status quo was kept.
    A) They believe their hard work is worth the dollars involved in the price and they want to preserve that. Plus they spend those dollars in the community. All of them.
    B) They have systems in place that help each other , the bush telegraph that ensures everyone gets news very quickly to curb the police enthusiasm. The police like the funding for chopper surveillance and like the cat and mouse month of the year. (They waved at us hovering over our house a few weeks back. If nothing else others had a chance to organise themselves while they took time to bother us.

    I believe the market would still exist anyway, I don't grow. I wont grow. A grower is only a criminal because some law says so. Many of them are just like you and me.

  • Hard News: Will the grown-ups ever…, in reply to fredster jones,

    you can only highlight a hair-pulling episode as supposedly stark evidence as to his unsuitability to run the country?

    No ,wrong ,we here analyse and comment on many of the lies and theft and social inequity that Key and his cronies manage along with Keys immature ,inappropriate all confirming dubious behaviour that shows in his childish bully way. Your sycophantic defense of such idiots like Key, Bob Jones, showing the same idiotic behaviour, tells me much about you. Pure ignorance is bliss innit?
    Anyhow enough time spent on you methinks.
