  • Up Front: Respectably-Dressed Sensible…, in reply to B Jones,

    Add some chili by discussing things men can do to prevent rape (like thinking again about what constitutes fair pursuit), and you’ve turned boring old chicken soup into tom yum.

    Sounds good to me! So Akslutwalk then.
    And did you see Campbell Live, extraordinary displays!
    The smart one was keeping her mouth shut, letting the men do what men do......

  • Up Front: Respectably-Dressed Sensible…, in reply to Deborah,

    That’s a very scary thing to do i.e. to interrogate your own past behaviour.

    Is this possible at more than the individual level? And maybe, come up with longer lasting solutions. But it makes me feel as if little has changed, the soup(society) we all swim in produces, with another generation, the same result.

    While your reading that Global thingy on Drugs, a bit of Bill Hicks might help.

  • Speaker: Bad Aid: How Murray McCully is…,

    Sez the Muzza...

    "The acid test is this: ask the Pacific leaders whether they want New Zealand aid dollars to pour into poverty subsidisation programmes that lead nowhere and are top heavy with expensive administrators, or whether they want to prioritise the development of sustainable futures in fisheries, tourism, agriculture and horticulture. In my experience, the response is deafening."

    So how was the question asked? Where was this question popped to "Pacific leaders" And what the fuck has your "experience" got to do with it Muzza, didnt you record the results of this survey questionnaire you made of "Pacific leaders".
    Oh thats right It was more of an informal quiz couched in terms of..." Its a waste of time just giving those poor people money, they'll just waste it and we'll never be able to track it. So get your mates to set up a company as a front and we'll give it to them. 'nother drink minister?"

  • Speaker: Bad Aid: How Murray McCully is…, in reply to 3410,

    This undermines their ideology of the primacy of the individual,

    Of course they don't mean this to refer to all individuals equally. I believe there is inherently a pecking order, emanating in concentric circles from their earthly bodies.

  • Speaker: Bad Aid: How Murray McCully is…,

    Unfortunately, as the last two and a half years have shown, Murray McCully clearly doesn’t know anything about aid.

    So that’s goes on the list of things Murray knows nothing about. Boy am I getting tired of all these nervous nellies who have travelled the safe path risen to positions of power and influence and seem capable of SFA. I bet they cant even change a tyre without help.

    Right from the moment he inherited it as part of the Foreign Affairs portfolio he’s set about pulling the old aid programme apart, intent, it seems, on rebuilding it in his own image.

    Im trying to imagine that. Self-serving timorous, boot-licking toady with a propensity to kiss up and kick down. But maybe in person he’s a luverly chap.
