  • Polity: Forty, in reply to Sue,

    Thank your mum for the observation. With a 0 b'day looming in few days the wider family is a little perplexed as to my decision to essentially not celebrate it in the manner they expected. My last 0 birthday was big event and what followed was major upheaval in life that bought my first and v. scary look at own mortality (brain tumour) and a rapid but ultimately successful for all in our family move of cities. This time round just want to have time with my immediate family and day off probably walking around Titiri with my camera.

  • Capture: April Come She Will, in reply to Chris Waugh,

    My original hometown & pleased to the Cenotaph whole again. Was back there a month ago and it was looking touch & go that the works to get "George" back on the plinth were not going to be completed in time.

  • Hard News: The other kind of phone tapping,

    After hearing about tapping and discovering it worked on the payphone outside HB Williams Library in Gisborne, 3 of us embarked on a great weekend riding our bikes all around town and the 'burbs trying it on every payphone. It was simple things that kept energetic but geeky 9 y.o. boys amused in the early 70's eh!

  • Hard News: Privacy and the Public Interest, in reply to izogi,

    Thanks. I did a bit more digging later (as work allowed) and got the same info. Still interested as to source of the specific comments. There is a 2010 and 2014 “survey” and I imagine that it’s asking a lot of one individual to glean that level of detail on all Judges across the wide range of judicial disciplines. Further some of those comments come across as a bit “legalese” in their constructs.

  • Hard News: Privacy and the Public Interest,

    Speaking of Judges, it would seem J. Chisholm is about as soft as we could have expected to have had appointed to the Collins inquiry. Not sure who is behind this KiwiFirst site that rates Judges but Chisholm is not very highly rated. High Court Justice Lester Chisholm 2010 Judge Survey Score
    Some comments: Prone to frequent legal faux pas, not a good judge to have if facing an influential or Crown adversary and fractious history with Solicitor General David Collins and other political heavyweights; experiences which have cumulatively added to Chisholm’s insecurity when it comes to rule without fear or favour.

    Potentially more deeply disconcerting WO and Ministerial collusion in Education sector, if true this is vile and reprehensible behaviour.

  • Hard News: UPDATED: Media Take: Election…, in reply to Idiot Savant,

    But it's not news when same magazine is still sitting in doctors, dentists, physios's & tyre repair waiting rooms etc 3 months later, right in the middle of an election campaign and the AB's are playing AU, SAF etc. That is the calculation made by the message managers in getting that cover at the time they did.
