    Dubsie, Paistie, and now the dismal Mr. Clive, like so many zits crying to be squeezed. Who knows why they come here to die? Who'll help them find their way to hip-hop child-bashers heaven? Who cares?

    show me the way joe, i know you care...your opinion is god to me, you make such a difference...no really, you do...honest

  • Sacha,

    So far no one has posted here saying they disagree with those assertions.

    Gosh darn you must be right then. If you want your prejudices confirmed, there are a few places that you'd fit right in. Tried talkback?

    But you have posted saying you have a monopoly on intelligent debate

    Where? You being a fool doesn't make me or anyone else in these parts especially intelligent. Let alone monopolists.

  • Joe Wylie,

    Simon being holed up in SE Asia for 5 years hasn't helped. You're out of touch with NZ.It seems you only know NZ through PAS.

    You obviously haven't taken the trouble to read Mr. Grigg's accounts of his regular visits to NZ in recent years. Unlike you, he takes the trouble to get out, though probably not to your particular backwater of bigotry.

    If you're that given to mouthing off before checking your facts it rather beggars belief that you'd be able to find your own toby. As for the 3-pin plug-tap washer snark, there used to be an old crank from Dairy Flat who regularly repeated that refrain in the Herald letters column. As he's been quiet for some years now, and the unrighteous are still flourishing despite their leaky taps and crap wiring, I tend to believe that, much like you, he was full of it.

    Last week you were frantically humping Barry Brailsford's leg.
    Slut.

  • Simon Grigg,

    being holed up in SE Asia

    Sounds like I'm hanging with Lord Lucan, Martin Boorman and Elvis.

    I must get out more I guess, when I'm back, as I've clearly lost touch with the pace and reality of whatever life you lead, Andrew, out there fixing those plugs and taps.

    It seems you only know NZ through PAS.

    Ohh, and these out of touch folks amongst many (and that was just one night in June last).

    (And, cheers Joe)

  • Craig Ranapia,

    Can anyone here wire up a 3 pin plug ? Fix a leaking tap?

    Yes and yes. I also do most of the cooking and cleaning, and trim my own hair into a super-butch number one every six weeks or so. Is this where we repair to the nearest urinal with a tape measure and see who has the biggest cock?

    Clive: Nobody around here has a monopoly on "intelligent debate", but I've seen no evidence that you're even starting to win market share on intelligent anything.

    gak. do some of you more established PASers realise how had it can be for a newbie here to get a look in on this place?

    Sometimes it feels like the only option is shock or... "nah..."

    It really is. And it reminded me how good 'Duck-Shaped Pain' is. I shall have to retrieve it from my parents' shed when I'm back in New Zealand.

    Yes I do, Scott. OTOH, when your opening gambit is "you're all a pack of effete, Communist circle jerks" it shouldn't surprise when you're not exactly welcomed with flowers and a thank you note.

    In recent days, we've had two pretty interesting newbies: Deborah Coddington, whose gotten a hell of a lot of stick around here, but still managed to engage with a discussion. And Cathy Odgers who seemed to be shocked and outraged that she got return fire when she came roaring into the "abusive troll farm" and decided to try and school Russell on the industry he's only worked in for... well, nearly thirty years.

    I recognize a lot of those faces Simon. But you can hardly call them mainstream society. Load of BS. Don't see any plumbers or electricians there.

  • andrew clive,

    Can't expect much from Martyn Bradbury with his article on Goff, he's just another left wing media troll similar to the wanna be poet with the 180 second span of the most boring poetry slot on Radio Live. I have tuned in to listen Craig , but the niche audience you're looking for doesn't exist beyond half a dozen folks if that .

    Still there always has to be an audience for someone in denial.

    Unless your tongue is firmly in your self righteous cheek Andrew, I'd confidently hazard the comment that you don't have the faintest fucking idea what you are talking about.

    Still, having had the pleasure of your trolling here, I'd guess that wouldn't come as a revelation to most.

    Interesting.....the right to express a view is determined by the number of people likely to agree with it, according to Clive. Mediocrity....here we come.

    (Builders must really fucking hate this guy).

    Hard to hate anyone in our household but noticed mine reach for the Laphroig rather quickly last night.
    I really couldn't be bothered with this twerp, as I vaguely (he really is forgettable) recalled him from his last visit with which he tried to convince us it was a good idea to bash those pesky little human beings. I remembered the 'right to hit because my brain is too small to figure out any reasonable way to communicate with children,' being played again and again like a broken record of which he would also no nothing about because that is on the left category of which he refers earlier.He must read PAS alot. He finds it necessary to bandy about incorrect percentages and noone, I mean noone pops in to support his view and he really is alone.Oh well, small man.

    Socialists and their obsession with the working class. You realise you're holding this country back Andrew? Where's the ambition?

    Bill English has Haircut

    Acting Prime Minister Bill English's ministerial convoy broke two laws while waiting for him to get a haircut.

    Seems our Blinglish has more concern for his golden locks than the working class or the disabled or even his driver, who may have incurred a penalty for his master whilst Bill was playing Prime Ministers.
    When I first arrived here, NZ that is, I popped down to the local speedway, Waikaraka Park, for an evenings entertainment, I had an Onion fastened to my belt, it was the fashion at the time. I saw a chap sitting on his own so I asked if I might join him. He was an affable sort of fellow and we exchanged quips and chortles the whole evening. Well, anyway, Later in the night an announcement came across the Tannoy system that they used in those days, the sort with the big hornlike things you are more likely to see on battleships, big grey things they are, the speakers, not the battleships but they are grey too but anyway, I digress. The announcer said something like "We are proud to have the Prime Minster, Mr. David Lange, with us this evening to hand
    out the prizes" or something. So my new friend stood up and said how nice it was to meet me shook my hand and waddled off to his prize giving thing. Wouldn't happen these days, can't get close to the PM with all his security and hangers on. Even if it is only a pretend Prime Minister.
    Now, have I ever told you about my old mate Helen...

  • Joe Wylie,

    Now, have I ever told you about my old mate Helen...

    Speedway "announcers", known as Ratchet Jaws, usually affected a self-effacing monotone, even when moved to exuberance. Is it true that your old mate made her public speaking debut at the Waikato Stock Car & Saloon Club's Huntly speedway?

  • dc_red,

    Thanks Steve. That's Lange for you.

    I'm guessing the topic of lightbulb-changing abilities never came up?

    Now for the time I stood next to Deputy PM Michael Cullen ... with no security in sight.

  • Steve Barnes,

    I can't say the subject was ever broached frankly. On the first occasion that I met Helen I must admit to being a little star struck. I was sitting in a local Pub, enjoying a refreshing ale, when an old friend, who I must add isn't getting any younger, brought Helen over to the table and introduced us. She extended her hand, in greeting not in a violent way, I reciprocated, we exchanged pleasantries, discussed minor points of interest and she left. All this while I had sat frozen in my seat, awe struck. A while later, having composed myself, I realised I should have stood up. I felt like This. The second time we met I was accompanied by the DPS.
    ;-)
