    at least you will have Norman and not Turei whom I find to be overbearing and obnoxious who simply can’t stop talking over others with a sneer that makes me want to slap her .. wouldn’t of course but there you go

    Great that you have excluded Winston. Hope TV! does so as well. There are minor parties and there are miniscule parties.

    Hmm, under Chrome I don’t get to see the Labour ad. Had to open KB in Firefox to see what everyone is talking about.
    I love you Chrome, even if you don’t have a RIP plugin.

    I have every post from today open and they all have a different labour ad on them. The Strandlings must be laughing their heads off.

    Any way you could get National ads to imbed on The Standard, or even funnier, Red Blurt!

    Good grief, and now the banner add is Forest and Bird, Vote for Nature! All in green with a big green tick. Who are they pushing…

    I agree: there is no difference at all, Viking2.

    These unremarkable two organisations (Labour and Labour lite) are sides of the same devalued socialist coin. The faces may change (Goff or Key), but their failed ideology is the same.

    You two use the wrong browser. Unless it’s your search history gets you Labour ads the rest of us don’t see? ;-)

    I am just chuffed that tonight Key FINALLY expressed some pride and confidence in Three Strikes….it no longer matters to me that the Nats are claiming credit for it…success has many fathers as they say…

    Still waiting for Workman to tell us when the trend towards a tripling of prisoner numbers will commence…

    Can anyone please explain to me what Labour’s retirement age change is going to solve?

    They want to raise the age of eligibility to 67 by 2033. In 2033 someone 67 would have been born in 1966. The baby boom years were those born between 1946 to 1964. So that big bulge of baby boomers will already have started drawing the pension before Labour’s change takes effect.

    So how is that solving anything?

    Viking2 & Manolo have nailed it. Looking at that collection (mostly trash), Soper as moderator [I suppose at least it not Espiner, Garner or that other tweeb on TV3 (Patrick I’ve-got-a-great-face-for-radio Gower) and now labour ads on KB. I despair for NZ.
    Having just spent some time out of the country I am wondering is that collection all that we have to go against labour and labour-lite, is that it?

    So we will have….

    Brash with a good message but the usual piss poor delivery.
    Dunne spouting his usual populist crap.
    Turia saying the only thing we need to do is give more money to Maori.
    John Hatfield blaming white mother fuckers for everything.
    Norman being his usual arrogant bullshitting self.

    All in all a complete waste of my tax dollars.
