    Bloc heads...

    So maybe the time has come for the CCCP

    Which means there will always be an Octobriana!

    ...created in the 1960s by a group of dissident Russian artists calling themselves Progressive Political Pornography (PPP).

    or at least a Kiwi version thereof...

    Even Obama is having a dig at CC's climate change and moon positions

    "Now, part of what’s unique about climate change, though, is the nature of some of the opposition to action. It’s pretty rare that you’ll encounter somebody who says the problem you’re trying to solve simply doesn’t exist. When President Kennedy set us on a course for the moon, there were a number of people who made a serious case that it wouldn’t be worth it; it was going to be too expensive, it was going to be too hard, it would take too long. But nobody ignored the science. I don’t remember anybody saying that the moon wasn’t there or that it was made of cheese. "

    What also irritated me was that people were ‘tweeting’ ‘good job’, ‘nice work’, etc back to him (Kim.com), as if he’d done it,
    I didn’t see any replies disabusing them.

    I did: linked to Joe's page and pointed out that the sig had somehow gone missing. No response as yet.

    Appreciated. For whatever it's worth, I discovered this morning that Kim Dotcom, or whatever constitutes his Twitter presence, is now following me. That appears to be about it. Seriously, even David Farrar has been far more scrupulous about this kind of online hat-tippery.

    However, note that Colin Craig hasn't said whether or not he's a member of a 'parachurch' fundamentalist professional network/'ministry" like the Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship or other such organisations.

    Sadly it appears to me that Mr Dotcom despite his millions, still thinks it's fine to not only steal IP but to doctor it to make it appear as his own work. To not even acknowledge the fact when called out on it shows the character of the man.

    Serco. The tapeworm in the bowels of government.

    Yeah well, give ’em an inchworm and they’ll go full measure…

    Some light reading on why PPPs are a poison chalice:

    From Twitter Serco flout minimum wage at detention centres

    Corporate Watch’s Rotters List

    A Private Eye report on Serco

    G4S and Serco investigated for overcharging

  • Kumara Republic, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    And the fact that the SST have slammed Serco's recent projects as 'PC gone mad' speaks volumes. If Colin Craig as PM doesn't go far enough for them, where would they draw the line? Lee Kuan Yew? Verwoerd? Pinochet?
