  • Hard News: But seriously, drug policy, in reply to Dean Wallis,

    Agreed.

    It's not like coming from a dysfunctional family isn't having more effect.
    And many dysfunctional families are as a result of problems which have political solutions.
    So maybe there's a political solution to consider?

  • Hard News: 2014: The Meth Election,

    @Jake you requested my opinion and I gave it. It was nothing to do with raising the intellectual level of debate.
    I feel that I, and others who share my lowly opinion of John Key, are the ones who can see the Emperor is naked. We are unimpressed by his riches and his ability to reflect what others want to see in him. His lack of care in responding to interviewers, his lack of precision and his apparent (convenient?) failures of memory all mitigate against any respect for the man. He also has a nasty streak, trying to put-down those he perceives as weaker with a smarmy smirk and he is a poor orator.
    Hence my dismissal of his 'leadership qualities' that you so admire.

    And your admiration of him causes me to lower my opinion of you. Perhaps unfairly, perhaps not.

  • Hard News: 2014: The Meth Election, in reply to Jake Starrow,

    That’s my opinion. Yours?

    As previously stated, my opinion is that he is a feculent, smarmy, unprincipled twat who has no leadership qualities whatsoever.

    Thanks for asking.

  • Hard News: Privacy and the Public Interest,

    BTW not arguing against a CGT as I think it is an excellent idea and long overdue.
    Public misconceptions about it are rife, and promulgated by National-aligned sources, but it is a bloody good impost against the current housing bubble.

    No way is the nationwide median house price $500k. It might be that in & around Auckland but not 'down country'.

    Not sure how much difference it will make to your figures, but I would hazard a nationwide median price of closer to $375k.

    You are confusing 'bearably beerable' with 'leadership'.

    lacking genuine leaders who inspire. Goff, Shearer and now Cunliffe are all cut from the same mediocre cloth.

    As opposed to the positively Churchillian Mr Key?

    You're having a laugh.

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

    There is also the issue of JK having lied about when he knew about Dotcom.
    I am looking forward to a big public revelation that the PM has flat-out lied to the nation, repeatedly. The grinning, slick, facile, glib, feculent Prime Minister of our beautiful country.
