    Obviously Key is now a witness in this case, I look forward to the police raid of his office where they take away all his phones and computers

    Of course it's possible that that someone called the PM and not John Key ....

    My favourite ODT headline was "Police stoned during IRA raid" I always wondered how they got that past the powers that be

    I was going to propose an ex-national MP/ex-All Black who seems to be at a loose end for the killer robot job but then realised that the fix was in and Bridges obviously already has a candidate in mind

    Of course the next question should be "how many tines have employees of the PM's office (including Ede) have been contacted by Slater (spit) in the past 4 years? And how many times have they contacted him?"

    I think one of the big problems with the bailout was that it didn't come with consequences for those who had caused the problem in the first place, this meant that no one really learned anything, no object lessons were made for the next generation of money managers

    Equally the politicians didn't undo the mistakes they had made - IMHO the Glass–Steagall act should have been passed again as a prudent measure that had kept things running smoothlyish for the past 80 years

    It's been a few years since I spent a lot of time in Taiwan but the impression I got was that it really seems to be a weird series of contrasts - the greens want to be what they already are, a country - that's easy to understand..

    The blues, the KMT, the remains of the old guard that Mao chased off of the mainland, who ruled Taiwan as a police state for decades, the arch anti-communists ... they still think they're going to somehow rule China so they are cozying up to the mainland because both they and the CP believe in the one China they just disagree about who should be in charge
