  • Hard News: A fun but flawed weed documentary,

    I am constantly surprised that people expect well-researched material from a show pony. He is mired in sensationalism and gotcha journalism, which is why I didn't bother watching his programme. You may see it as a good faith effort, Russell, but we need more than "good faith" to get us through to the point of the referendum.

    Kudos to Cammick and all the elves that made RIU happen. It was such good reading (most of the time) even when I didn't agree with the reviews.

    And more kudos to Simon for getting hold of it and letting go again, into the national memory. Well done, that man!

    I’m trying.

    I know, but you are one column and Young and Trevett publish multiples of trash on their own.

  • Speaker: The economics of shit speech,

    But I'm sorry I cannot bring myself to give Teh Herald any money while they continue to spread shit.

    Moi aussi. Their political reckons are so fucking bad, I want them to curl up and die. Which would be hard on Fisher, Ng, et al but the rest of the thing is just dross. And it's dross across the whole NZME enterprise.

    David Seymour has decided to “object” in Parliament, not to prevent new gun laws being passed, but to get himself a headline before they do.

    David Seymour spent so long telling reporters what he was going to do that he failed to show up in the Chamber in time to do it.

    You seem intent on providing evidence that you are not a fit person to hold any sort of firearm licence,

    A fascinating watch! And, yes, me too with the incredibly hands on approach. Also, quite a lot of leading questions.

    Apropos of guns and gun lobbying, Al Jazeera has just ripped One Nation a new one in Australia.

    I dont know who Tracy Watkins( a search gives little to no clue as to what she is about although I noted with dread some connection with Whaleoil) is or whether she was just doing her word quota for the day.

    She's Stuff's "political editor". Total brown-nose for National. Misses John Key dreadfully.
