    I know Lee Williams well, i know Kyle Chapman well, and the picture you paint and how you portray and villify these people is very different, and warped from what i personally experience.

    So what are they like when they're not being creepy racists and bigots? Do tell.

    Carl Bromley….this Carl Bromley?

    Looks that way. Apparently he preaches unabashed disingenuousness.

    MakeItLegal have filed a return.

    Sent it to the wrong address (sigh!) so it is late going up

    Not up yet but will be shortly, it is for $104,000(ish)

    Ah. And oops!

    Thanks for the response, Marta. Much appreciated.

    (SAM and Family First – who are behind the “Nope to Dope”; note we refer to “Nope to Dope” as anti-reform group not a “registered campaigner”)

    True, but I'm not even sure Say Nope to Dope is a group as such, so much as a brand passed around between the two closely-related promoters.

    That Make It legal figure of $96,000 is interesting – I knew they were in the tens of thousands, but not that close to having to file a return.

    Kia kaha, Russell and Fiona, and Sunset Sam – oops, I mean James and The One Who Does Not Like Being Discussed.

    Heh! He did once discover I'd written a blog post about him. He was okay about it :-)

    Russell, I really feel for what you have gone through advocating for your mum. Nobody should have to do that, and certainly not this year. Thank goodness for family.

    Thanks buddy. I pondered one more complaint to the Health and Disability Commissioner for a bit too long, but I realised last night that an OIA request, to check whether CCDHB actually made the changes they promised, would be a good thing to work on over the break.

    It revealed the strengths & weaknesses we have as a society.

    There wasn't really room for it in this post, but I've been thinking about that in terms of the people who've succumbed to conspiracy theories. We reveal our individual vulnerabilities too.

    If no one had proposed this word I'd have done it myself.
