    actually the current federal Lib/National coalition is too…

    I think you have a "de" in that word that is spoiling the meaning...

    Phil – I don’t think she has a NZ practising certificate, so there may not be much the Law Society can do.

    You might think that but no.

    [Edit] though I note she doesn't appear in the search results...

    New Whaledump

    Also a couple of tweets from this morning bear repeating:

    Whaledump @whaledump ·
    Have you learnt nothing from #DirtyPolitics? @MatthewHootonNZ has no idea what I plan to do. How could he?

    Whaledump @whaledump ·
    There are no rumours. @MatthewHootonNZ made them up to ratfuck Judith Collins. And those reporting his rumours are helping him.

    Wow, Hooton neck deep in a sewage pond splashing about frantically trying to drive away the floating turds. Sorry, has everyone eaten already?

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    Akshully, English missed a great opportunity to say "Well, personally, I'm really sorry that any public servant might receive a death threat. They're not elected and don't choose to be in the spotlight. I hope Mr Pleasants is not permanently scarred by his experience. I want to say further that I deplore Mr Slater's website and the uses he's put it to over the years. There's no place for that in New Zealand politics."

    I mean, where's Espiner going to go from there? A huge amount of the furore would die away. But that would require leadership, rather than "media management". Wankers.

    Hmmm, Espiner seems to have remembered what a journalist's job is. I wonder if English will refuse to talk to him again. I note Key only seems to be talking to
    Ferguson these days.
