    In case there's a need for the Crown to put down an insurrection led by Parliament. The G-G can stay in Auckland whilst the air force bombs the crap out of Wellington.

    Yeah baby! Love your work Russell. Talking truth to power. I recall, Key refused to come back on my show when he got a harder time than he expected - would love to see if you can get him to front at some stage and answer some fucking questions straight up.

  • Hard News: More than a bang on the head,

    Concussion is one (terrible) consequence of a sporting life, but check in with any elite athlete and middle age is a mess of deteriorating joints and ongoing pain.

    That Grace Jones and the Stevie Wonder remixes are rather delicious - thanks Russ. Notice a bit of hubby DJ Dick Johnson's influence in Anna's new track too.

  • Polity: An Orwellian Alice in Wonderland,

    You say this, but there are plenty of people out there who thinks what he's doing is okay, fed by a stream of vituperative supporting babble from the likes of Paul Henry, Leighton Smith, et el.

    I fear we're moving increasingly into the partisan divide we're seeing in the US.

    Yep. What you just said. Cynicism rules supreme.

  • Hard News: After Len,

    Did anyone hear Bill Ralston on RNZ this morning? "Debt out of control"..."some one needs to step in..."..."rates, rates, rates." What utter bullshit. But if he keeps repeating it, he'll likely win because even though Auckland's rates are amongst the lowest in the country, who wants to pay more? Even if we have woefully underinvested in the city for decades (thanks to our friends, the CitRats).

  • Hard News: The good guys,

    Great insight Russ. A will to win but not at the expense of dignity and decency. I like it.
