So Kim Dotcom knew about the contents of the Hager book a day in advance of everyone else?
Nothing to be done about it but garden: the fig tree is figging.
Me too. Potting up māhoe and kānuka all morning followed by an afternoon tidying up the flower borders and earthing up the spuds. Just gotta tend that garden!
What a sunny summer sky! What a day! What a day!

Matt Nippert has an article in the Herald this morning about 'NZ's links to equator scandal'. It includes the following paragraph -
'Offshore companies and trusts are routinely used for entirely legal purposes, and Mossack Fonseca maintains that it has always complied with international protocols. A reference to a person or entity in connection with the Panama Papers is not therefore in any way indicative of any wrongdoing or impropriety.'

I think they’re counting everyone who ever mentioned it on social media.
Well the government would know...
This morning on Nat Radio I thought I heard someone from 'the panel' (not Mora's) state that they had had input from 'a million' people. Seemed a bit optimistic to me - maybe they earned their dosh after all...
So are we going with Hypnoflag or Monkeybutt?
Someone make a decision - or do we need a panel of worthies to decide?
