I am finding this quote:
Time’s up. Your behaviour is not acceptable
from the Right Honourable (Tui ad tagline) Judith Collins especially piquant.
Would that she see the connection and offer herself up as the first proof that the policy might actually work?
Quite right, Hilary. That is a sweet piece of writing by Mandy Hager and should be required reading for all kiwi journalists.
Psychic, are you?
As the IM party is not chasing after the (ahem) 'mature voter', I feel it is entirely appropriate that they uploaded the video to social media. That is the forum where their target demographic gets their info and that is exactly the sort of thing that disaffected young people, possibly considering voting for the 1st time, will relate to.
Ergo, uploading it, while distasteful to some of the crustier elements, was appropriate.
IMO, of course.
Seems to me that it is being willfully mis-reported.
Is there really any surprise at the chant arising from a combination of students, alcohol, a function hosted by a political party opposed to John Key, in an area where the National Party has failed to provide adequate leadership in the aftermath of the earthquakes?
Frankly this is pretty much exactly what I would have expected.
So the MSM are just sensationalizing it and playing it for maximum effect.The political coverage in Aotearoa's MSM really is puerile. We, the voting public, deserve better.
As someone who lives out in the sticks and primarily drinks at home (to avoid the drink/drive scenario) I tend to stick to the beers Russell fulminates against - the strong uber-hoppy numbers that excite my palate. Drinking at home doesn't devolve into 'sessions' so I am happy to drink something with a reasonably hefty alcohol content.
No chance I'll get to Beervana, so slim-to-no chance I'll ever get to taste this delicious-sounding brew.
Anyone 'out west' in the Auckland area could do worse than check out the range at 'blanc' on Lincoln Rd (used to be Lincoln Wines). Beers (and wines & spirits) for all occasions.

Some bored GCSB drone
My ears are burning...
CCCP that would be C(3)P - oh!
With just as much considered thought.
