  • Hard News: Not doing justice, in reply to Craig Ranapia,

    With Gibson's repeat offensiveness Cunliffe may be called on to act on the 'last warning' given. If so, I don't think Labour would shed too many tears at that point.

  • Hard News: Not doing justice,

    I think refusing to stand on the list indicates that that these candidates are not genuinely campaigning for the party, rather acting more selfishly.

    I think it can also be seen as the opposite: A party in need of rejuvenation getting younger candidates move up the list and electorate candidates test whether they truly have their local support. Likewise, standing as high on the list only could also be seen as selfish but may be argued as necessary for an essential member of the cabinet.

  • Hard News: The crybaby philosopher,

    I ink Whyte got exactly what he sought: People talking about ACT and him. Many may notice the talk without reading or investigating his argument and assume the content to be their own biases. Suits him fine, although intellectually dishonest.

    Try http://www.energywise.govt.nz/products-and-appliances/water-heating/solar for starters..? I've mostly found Energywise useful, if at times condescending.

    Do they still stage concerts in the Waitomo Caves? Because poor puns be damned that would be a once in a lifetime gig.

  • Hard News: The Letter,

    An Associate Immigration Minister making immigration decisions versus a Minter advising the police a sexual crime suspect may be a politically sensitive subject will, my pessimism says, be lost on the those just attuning to politics ahead oh election. I would loved to be proved wrong. But I do appreciate both parties dealings are coming to light.

  • Hard News: Decidedly Undecided, in reply to Thomas Lumley,

    Living on the coattails of Epsom I'd say there's little worth polling the individual electorates (and Ōhariu) as either the candidates get in or National does but these minor parties' national party vote for whether an electorate win bring others into parliament a better spend of polling budget.
