    I've been reading some newspapers from earlier in the year. Did we have Mossack Fonseca/Panama Papers/foreign trust in the original list? Popular NZ-related words for several months. A great deal of post-truth involved too.

    Bumble Puppy is the name of a game whereby a ball is tied by string to a central pole and players (one or many) try to hit it with a bat.

    Earthquakes start somewhere and then trigger faults in other directions. So while the first earthquake was in north Canterbury the energy release quickly travelled north as this youtube simulation shows.

    GNS generally refers to the Kaikoura quakes.

    Marlborough EQ is better and Wellington is just across the strait so explains why so much damage here.

    Yes seclusion rooms have popped up all over NZ - who knew?

    I also hate 'social investment' and fear we will hear more next year of the new PM's pet policy to privatise or delegate social services and share personal details of clients with whatever government agency or politician wants them.

    A group of us have spent this year trying to get publicity and justice for Ashley Peacock but he continues to spend his days locked up on a Porirua hillside.

  • Speaker: David Shearer: The one that…,

    David Shearer spoke to a packed public meeting in Khandallah, Wellington, at the time of the Gaza crisis in September 2014. He was very impressive. He is obviously more at home resolving international conflicts than dealing with local politics.

    I remember many years ago when he first stood on the Labour list, at Helen Clark's request I think. He was overseas and came home only for some last minute campaigning. At that time people either had never heard of him, or wondered why someone with such an international reputation wanted to be a backbench MP in NZ.
