    The ‘highatus’ is over!
    I’m guessing the more nuanced Timothy Fleary didn’t fly,
    nor carry the subtle unfocused fog of misty-eyed youth.

    A very, very minor cavil that you can toss in the ‘silly, sigh, bin’….

    “Cameron Slater’s mendacious, bullshit-ridden site has finally been shut down – and yet, somehow, the grift goes on, writes reformed blogger Danyl Mclauchlan”

    It would have been better if Mclauchlan actually got Matt Blomfield's name right;

    "There were long, detailed attacks on an obscure Auckland socialite, and a campaign against Matthew Bloomfield, a person of no obvious political relevance, who owned a Hell’s Pizza franchise. "

    I’ve never heard of Mike Yardley before...

    What an enviable state to exist in!

    He is Chchch's Mike Hosking analogue - with Stuff and Radio access
    (ie: another right-leaning opinionated proselytizer and largely a waste of carbon)

    This is important for me because I take things way too seriously.

    I find the simplest panacea is the old maxim;
    'Trust in Allah,
    but tie up your camel'

    It’s called a poll. It isn’t a poll. It’s a lie. And it’s not good enough.

    I suspect the powers that be at TV3 think 'polling' is just cutting horns off
    - they don't want sheep or cows that can think or fight back...
