  • Polity: Flaccid balloon, mite-ridden bees, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

  • Hard News: Media Take: The Panama Papers,

    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.

  • 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.
