Off the grid

April 2nd, 2011 at 5:00 pm by David Farrar

From tonight until Tuesday I’m in Tora, which is on the south-east coast of the Wairarapa. It’s outside Internet and cellphone coverage, so apart from those posts i have done in advance, and time delayed, no fresh content until Tuesday.

    You know I could understand this as a rational response to daylight saving at the other end of the year. Of course I might have missed the Tora Girl :)

    Have you turned the autofeed from Captain Panicpants office off ? Have a good time but watch out for the seals – they love penguins.

    @ Trev. Hell Panicpants is a very harsh way to describe Andrew Little, Tizard isn’t his problem anymore. That said I can see no reason not to take advantage of our hosts absence and will happily take part in good natured speculation regarding his activities. I think for the record he is part of a paua smuggling operation hell the code name Penguin is a give away.

    Trev I think the panicking will be about 6.10pm tomorrow night when the latest poll results are released. Celebration on National ranks as Labour poll below 25%, Goff slips to 4% and the Tizard bomb is dropped. At least you are safe, but those on the list will be a little anxious

    Hey, Trevor. You on the mend? Seems to have been a bad week for bikes.

    Quick, let’s pretend we’re on Red Alert. Someone delete Trevor’s post.

    No no no. Trevor comments more here than he does on Red Alert. Red Alert subject posters and comment makers prefer to be on Kiwiblog. Like it is all happening over on the Labour Party Blog .. lots of things going on about the last two or more weeks.
    The fucking tossers there should delete their own comments.
    Truth be known, there are only two balls in the Labour Party, and Trev has both. Helen’s have gone into retirement

    @ DPF; so you’ll miss Q&A today, and the laughter that arises when Phil Goff tries to suggest that having Judith Tizard back will strengthen his leadership …

    There; that’s how mature blogs handle intemperate commenters; instant bans are not required. There’s a message for you there Trevor for you to ponder while you recover ;-)
