    Russel Brown, by letting these exhaustive personal attacks go on without moderation, you're effectively endorsing them. I wouldn't have dipped in here if I knew your pool was as shallow as this.

    Kumura, you're a coward. At least Dalziel trolled in the daylight.

    And my correct appellation is Dr in the professional setting and Mrs in the public . But then I am not surprised you got it wrong.

    Dr Mpledger, you'd do well to check your own hysterical umbrage. Expecting someone to deduce you're a woman without displaying a first name, with an avatar of Mr Potatohead, is most unreasonable.

    Perhaps you should reread what Hillary wrote. She interpreted the team in the five-legged race as "disabled" and the half-ethnic running team in blue running past them as "an obvious representation of Social Darwinism." Calling that hysterical umbrage isn't ad hominem; it's prima facie! :)

    Mr Pledger, not the first woman I've faced in an election, and I assure you I attacked Helen's policies just as hard as Jacinda's, and neither woman themselves.

    Russell, do any of your followers know how to the play the ball instead of the man?

    Epic trolling, Dalziel. If you were to complete my quote you'd see that it was in response to the latter half of the first quote. A lie by omission. The rest appears to be another, more exhaustive Logical Fallacy.

    You’re welcome, William. Just to clarify: no ponytails were abused in the making of the commercial, the five-legged racers aren’t lame in the disabled sense, rather hobbled by their inherent enmity toward one another, and “Nigel no mates” outnumbers the Laboureens by six seats and need fewer friends than Jacindy to get over the line. :)

    If you read past the first sentence, Simon, you'll see the argument corroborated in detail, with references cut and pasted from Labour's own website.

  • Hard News: Media Take: The selling of…, in reply to linger,

    Five of the six claims were deemed “FAIR” on the 6pm TV3 News (15/09/17). The fourth claim, Income Tax, was deemed “FAKE.” They’re wrong. With the exception of Labour, all parties voted to pass the law to lower income tax last May. It’s law. Labour’s plan to “reverse” the tax cut will require them to introduce and pass a bill to *raise* Income Tax. Details of Labour’s taxes may be found on their website [euphemistic quotes mine]:
    > Alcohol, *Petrol* and Tobacco “Levies”
    > Clean Water “Royalty”
    > Restore the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
    > Commission a Tax Working Group to “review” a whole pile of new taxes including CGT and Land Tax, which everyone knows is unlikely to come back with a “Meh, don’t need it.”

    Andin, *how* is the ad wrong? Nobody seems keen on refuting it. Like an adult.

    Ad hominem doesn't qualify as an argument either, Tom — but at least you have the balls to put your name to your unsubstantiated slur.
