    Well said, Robyn. I'd be ashamed to be working in government now. No progress at all since I left in 2005.

    And Bill English is an old white man, which is in some ways the next closest thing to an old white woman.

    The old white woman was last seen running for the hills, hoping she hadn't caught anything nasty...

    oh crap what’s the collective noun

    A carton, or a drawer. Perhaps a stash?

    there’ll be another bit of utter crazy along in a minute,

    Gold!

    So much this.
    I've been saying to Labour people for ages: "Give us something to vote for - don't rely on us voting against the government, just because you think it must be your turn by now"

    like the International Criminal Court, yes

    I wonder if anyone's checked whether the supposed insurgents were removed from any wanted lists after this raid, or whether they were listed as killed in any other, later raids. If NZSAS were working from good intel, they should have names...

    right now I imagine the comms team and/or PR peeps at NZDF are feeling pretty good about this skirmish

    Except that they put Keating in a position where he basically lied, while proclaiming integrity. Not a clever thing to do to the boss.

    It just makes them look stupid.

    Perhaps it's not just the look...
