    You’re confused about what a liberal is.

    Tories usually are.

  • Hard News: Schools: can we get a plan up…, in reply to Max Call,

    so decile rankings are based on data from 2006? Even though we have data from 2013?

    It always takes a while for census data to be finally released. You can't put everything on hold while you wait for the latest data. Planning takes time.

    What Russel is referring to (IMHO) is the disinclination of this government to pay any attention to evidence, no matter what year it was from.

    So why doesn’t the ministry build single sex schools any more, when they’re clearly still popular?

    Because mainstream (whatever the hell that really means...)

  • Hard News: Crowdfunding Time, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I’m not sure it’s a priority, to be honest. The comments styling does work and it might not be cheap to introduce full GUI editing.

    Yep, I suspect it's non-trivial, given that Supermodel is hand-rolled by Cactuslab. You don't have the repository of plugins that larger distributions have.

  • Hard News: Crowdfunding Time, in reply to Sacha,

    ah, so a graphical editing interface.
    Could be admirably simple as well.

    According to the Cactuslab site, Supermodel does have a GUI editor for the long form articles, but it doesn't mention anything about comments.

  • Hard News: Oh, Auckland, in reply to Stephen R,

    There is, and down by Te Papa, as well as the corner of Victoria St and Vivian. But Russ' point is that you don't get the same scale and diversity outside south Auckland, and that's because you don;t have the same population density.

    Go, Auckland.

    We often say that, but it never leaves...

    3. Clare Curran – fallen out with David Cunliffe who has taken over ICT from her, she is pissed.

    Yeah, nah. Curran is pure red, always has been. She's more interested in Hillside and jobs in her electorate (as she should be, and as any electorate MP should be). Not the most techie hands on the benches, and I was surprised she got it when Cunliffe fell from favour, but her errors in the portfolio pale beside National's.

    If the office is in Lower Hutt, and they really have a sitting MP... maybe it's Trevor Mallard?

    That was my first thought too.

    More likely, it's because the rents are cheaper in the Hutt. I seriously can't see Trevor jumping wakas...

  • Hard News: Inside the Shrine,

    Good god! Gower is finally showing some signs of becoming a journalist (although the story was as much about him as it was about Oravida, but it's a start...)

    Any time Key tries to do the brushoff answer, you know he's hiding stuff.
