  • Hard News: Potency and purity,

    But it's not hard to see why emergency doctors like Quigley would see it as a better option than most other things that could turn up in a pill:

    Quigley was saying on Back Benches recently that, for every 100 alcohol related incidences in ER on a weekend night that he deals with, there may be just 1 case of a drug related incident.
    Having tuned in (late start recording) late to Damian and Wallace's show, it appeared that there was a group on MDMA under Quigley's watch. I was astounded (and pleased to see) that this was allowed to happen. I couldn't determine if it was true but I suspect if anyone could do it ,Damian could. Does anyone know if it was true?

    The worst thing is the way that corporate dreck spreads, like a fungal growth

    Along with endless meetings that eliminates any time to do the actual job at hand, then to be told at the next meeting of the "Team building " activities on Friday in which you will lose half a day travelling somewhere only to be locked in a room with a time limit to find ones way out of said room when really, you could just stay at work in the room that you can do the bloody job in!

    Rolling down Custom St this morning…

    That is so obviously a table, exquisitely carved, for export to our new overlords.

  • Speaker: Abortion: morality and health, in reply to kiwi_guy,

    I should hope it is made harder to have a baby on the DPB

    Do you know anything about the DPB or are you just spouting your problem with solo mothers.
    The DPB is a benefit that the father of the child, when identified, pays a considerable amount towards.The parents not being together may just be the best outcome for that child. That the DPB is now fraught with restrictive rules to access it shows that this Government does not care that a kid is fed, clothed or allowed time with the parent. Abortion for many woman is the best outcome for the bloody planet and it should be people like you that applauds a woman who makes such a decision. As Moz suggests morality is out the window with the Government.
    And, who the hell gives you the right to say rape should be an abortion right? No, rape just shouldn't fucking happen. Lets address that societal issue first before some kiwi guy gets to decide what a woman's allowed.

  • Hard News: Snowden and New Zealand, in reply to Alfie,

    I urge you to read Glenn Greenwald's take on the claims.

    Thank God for real journalism.

    The comments after Mr Greenwald's article reads like the comments in the Herald as soon as there is anything questioning the Government. They start out in support then the team is sent in to denigrate Labour or Greens. Interesting list of associates in media tied to the Obama Administration.

  • Hard News: A dramatic and unremarkable decision, in reply to Kay,

    Thank you Kay. I had read about the surgery somewhere and know that all options would be considered. It will be fantastic if Alex has some help from Elixinol though. I would suggest now ,if that is not helpful, his family could seek other derivatives from Dunne.
