    Me: “Hey car turn left”

    Car: “No, that’s the Skippers Rd have you read the ToS?”

    Me: “go to manual”

    Car: “No, you’re not the owner of me”

    That will be the end of the love affair

    Really this a great chance for our wonderful new fresh lefty government (yay!) to call National's bluff, to overreach themselves and push for an OIA that is so open that National cringe and wont support it!

    (of course the racing industry will still have to have some secrecy carved out so that they can get Winston's support)

  • Hard News: Memories of the news,

    In my case it might have been the arrival of TV, and the extreme unfairness that we didn’t have one when it started (not realising at 5 that we lived in a very working class suburb, and our parents probably couldn’t afford one …. but we owned our own house on a 99 year 3% govt backed mortgage)

  • Hard News: Barclay and arrogance,

    I think he got away with it because he refused to talk to the cops, and the cops likely felt that because of his connections they couldn't force the issue - then of course he pissed off overseas

  • Legal Beagle: Election 2017: the no…, in reply to Kevin McCready,

    You misunderstand MMP. Winston merely gets media attention and this silly line that he holds “balance of power” because he doesn’t announce intentions until after everyone else. Greens also have “balance of power” if you want to run that line.

    Actually my point was that with the numbers shown above any realistic ruling coalition would still need Winston to form a govt just like they do today (for example I don't consider Nats+Greens as a realistic coalition that would actually happen)
