I sure hope good Aucklanders stay away from anything advertised on Tv3, especially Campbell Live, after its PR debacle on Lecher Len Brown and his proposed cycle lanes. If ever I have seen a sham to get the loser traction, it was this pathetic programme. How long are we going to put up with these left-wing mugs drowning us with this low specimen of humanity?
Now that you are back Left Right and Centre I want you to seriously think about your behaviour and consider suitable recompense for your actions.
You have done your time now and I hope you have learned your lesson. I will be watching you so do not disappoint please.
Talk to your doctor about anti depressants, they might help or maybe just read a book, you might learn something.
Remember you have the support of Kiwi Blog contributors; now try not to let us down
igm – he’s on a bike dude. If you feel that strongly about it why don’t you just take him out ?
Perfect for making it look like an accident. With NZ’s justice system – you can star as one of those lovely folks everyone on here moans about getting a B&B slap on the hand for taking a life. If you were Len Brown would you want to be cycling around waiting to be spotted by some pissed off ratepayer who just caught their spouse playing away ? Now there’s a man who can’t get life insurance -hahahaha
For anyone who gives a shit – that’s a link to flash2666, safesally and chickadiddle. All appeared as new accounts on the same thread to reply to my comments it seems. And I suspect all are multiple IDs from the same one sad little idiot.
Am I allowed to call you a sad little idiot ?
Are you also ManuT? Who magically appeared out of nowhere to cheerlead for you? A user with all of 27 comments to its name ? How many usernames do you have on KB mate ?
I’m expecting to see five instant downticks from all of your various KB accounts. Like the ‘office romance’ thread where you gave yourself five upticks and me five downticks. What the fuck is that about ? Pathetic.
No doubt you’ll be watching me – that’s why you set up all of your accounts in the first place loser.
flash – I’d love to offer you some recompense for my actions. I’m truly and deeply very sorry. Truly. I really mean it. I really really do. My most humble apologies. I take it all back. Every last bitter and angry twisted word. Swear words are just dreadful, you really hit the nail on the head there – my goodness – no-one with an IQ over 40 swears like a sailor. I wholeheartedly agree with you now. Changed my mind completely. Thanks for the enlightenment. I was probably having a bad day. I had the rag. Can you get to Wellington buddy ? I won’t feel like it’s all been put right until I can shake your hand in person and beg for your divine forgiveness.
Gee – I’d really really love to meet you in person, face to face, so that I can show sincerely just how genuinely very very sorry I am that you took offence to my comments while attempting to cause an equal level of offence in return.
Answer to high speed police chases? (This was reprinted this morning’s Dom-Post, but I cannot find it on Stuff). The idea has not been received too well in UK but I wonder if it would get a more favourable reception in NZ ?
One of the downsides mentioned was what would happen if a car doing 110kph was accidentally stopped on M1 and a truck plowed into it. Another downside is it would not prevent the situation where someone drives off at high speed just because he sees a cop.
So the idea probably will not fly in UK.
Perhaps speed governors set to 120kph (to give an emergency overtaking margin) might help, but not in urban areas.
flipper, while it might be argued the Crown has wasted taxpayers money ( a highly dubious proposition in my view ) it is bound by its constitutional role to ensure that the Law and rule of Law is upheld . Do we release automatically anyone tried and convicted because they or their supporters proclaim thus.?
Not every PC decision is necessarily correct one as the Bain case amply demonstrates. As DPF noted with the Lundy appeal, there appears to both a serial killer still afoot with a cult of innocence running rampant, the Teina Pora case not withstanding.
Flipper calm down ,there old son.
The Privy Council is made up undoubtedly up of some fine nimble mine legal minds but no less or no more than those on our Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. or the US Supreme Court for that matter.They are all human and can err making decisions based on the evidence and facts before them.
Fortunately you did not mention ” David ” Binnie ( I Understand it was Ian?, but stand to be corrected. ) who again is held in the highest esteem etc.
But that did not prevent his “fatally flawed “report been dumped and for very sound reasons as we’ve all subsequently learnt.
Generally any given comment that attracts a lot of red ticks accumulates them slowly and randomly. They have to be particularly unpopular to rack up a lot in a hurry. And the increase is not clustered around one given number of downvotes – in this case exactly five at a time, given to one set of comments at the same time. Sadly, I’ve observed normally distributed voting patterns on KB.
It was five at a time on the office romance thread flash. And there’s been a few ‘five votes at a time’ on this thread. Do you have some kind of alert that notifies you to a given user’s comments on this website ?
Can anyone else tell me if that’s possible to have alerts set up for a given user to be notified when another given user comments ? So they can then stalk them like pathetic little lowlives ?
FLAG THAT! Susan Devoy is right: there is no real desire to change our current historic flag (reflecting history, culture and geography) and we will never all agree sufficiently on one new design to justify replacing the old flag.
One week back in parliament, and the Greens and Labour have taken a bit of a hammering.
The Greens big policy announcement was Nurses in low decile schools and schools as one stop shops to access social services. Of course they didn’t know or didn’t care that under National social workers are already attached to low decile schools and 300 registered nurses are also attached to low decile schools already.
The week ended for the Greens with Turei labelling a party with Hekia Parata, Claudette Hauiti and Paula Bennett as a racist party, in the same week that NZ had it’s first pacifika cabinet member appointed. Go figure.
Labour, in the same week, completely fucked up a major policy launch, threatened to close down Facebook, labelled those on $150000 as being in need of government support, had to clarify it’s baby bonus several times, and ended the week with it’s leader getting snippy at the media for having the temerity to ask him questions.
Gritting my teeth, I waded into the mire that is the tragic tabloid gutter glossy (Investigrunt). Lo and behold, what did I see but an interview with Colin Craig. Or rather, a piece of spinmeistery from Wishart. We learn that CC is actually also concerned about leaky buildings (as he made his fortune in property development), seems to want a referendum on genetically modified crops (!!!-after all this time without cataclysmic events???) and engaged in copious rhetoric against large business interests as opposed to small businesses, as well as some indeterminate candyfloss about ‘rewarding innovation’ and a ‘balanced budget’. And he states that he’s open to a possible coalition with Labour, as long as it kowtows to him about binding citizens referenda. Apart from sympathetic noises about charter schools and welfare policy, this guy seems to be an opportunist. And moreover, why isn’t he costing Conservative policies???
igm: “I sure hope good Aucklanders stay away from anything advertised on Tv3… drowning us with this low specimen of humanity?”
So TV3 is pathetic and Brown is a low specimen. And if Brown’s not in the news he’s the great disappearing mayor. If he’s not front and centre everyday saying something about what he’s doing in the job he’s a slacker. If he’s not fronting on issues like cycling in the city and the attendant problems he’s ignoring a clear problem. If he’s not overtly involved in finding out about the transport/roading mess he’s turning a blind eye.
It’s election year so get used to the rubbish tv moments manufactured for the electorate. When someone comes up with an item worse than Rodney Hide and the donkey there can be some surprise.
It’ll obviously take until that time for a lot of people to get over the fact that the person they didn’t vote for got in as Auckland mayor.
Has anyone been listening to Leighton Smith where a mother rang in about a school rang up about a school that arranged for a mid term abortion for her 15 year old daughter and she did not find out for almost a year later due to her daughter’s behavioral problems? Just like smacking this is another example of the state undermining parental authority.

Multiculturalism……”all we want is a little accomodation”,……..yeah right.
Christians in Jerusalem want Jews to stop spitting on them
The clergyman prefered not to lodge a complaint with the police and told an acquaintance that he was used to being spat at by Jews. Many Jerusalem clergy have been subjected to abuse of this kind. For the most part, they ignore it but sometimes they cannot.
.” Since then, the nun, who didn’t want to be identified, recalls being spat at three different times by young national Orthodox Jews on Jaffa Road, three different times by haredi youth near Mea She’arim and once by a young Jewish woman from her second-story window in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter. But the spitting incidents weren’t the worst, she said – the worst was the time she was walking down Jaffa Road and a group of middle-aged haredi men coming her way pointed wordlessly to the curb, motioning her to move off the sidewalk to let them pass, which she did. “That made me terribly sad,” said the nun,
Flipper: stephieboy/girl, which ever way the wind blows has now elevated itself to being in a position of offering critical analysis of the PC, when only a week or so ago was asking when the Bain appeal was taking place on the JR despite the JR not having been heard, the nutty sisters are still what they use to be.
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss populations trading economic sovereignty for an endless supply of fiat lottery tickets which somehow always come up losers and the water cannon of financial fraud making its way to the UK in preparation for austerity protests. In the second half, Max interviews Dr. Clive Peedell, co-leader of National Health Action Party, who claims that David Cameron has, indeed, begun privatizing the National Health Service if you were to use the definition by the World Health Organization. They discuss the impossibility of ever having a market in healthcare where there is always going to be an asymmetry of information between doctor and patient (or, ‘customer,’ in the case of privatization
Unbelievable – Obviously the Police 111 phone line can now be used for not only ‘emerency’ calls, but ‘non emergency’ calls
The poor bugger who was being assaulted by rocks being thrown at his house, determined that this was not an emnergency, so rang the local Police number, but was cut off 3 times (no one home)
When he finally managed to get in touch with the Police, not only were they not prepared to attempt to locate the criminal, he was told that he should have called the 111 number !
Fucking unbelievebale – no wonder there is so little respect for the Police !
As a child we teach the children 111 is ONLY for emergencies ! Whats going on here ?
Re: the ‘grounding of the ferry’ (thanks for the clip BTW).
Despite the ‘sensational’ pics’, what you saw was standard procedure in such places. The ships are going to be cut up ‘in situ’ and will never be going to go to sea again. As such, it is absolutely essential that they be ‘beached’ as far up the beach as possible, so that the cut-up ‘bits’ can be removed as quickly as possible – either by human effort, or by use of bulldozers and cranes.
Standard procedure is to effectively get as the ship moving as fast as possible as it approaches the shore, the intention being that when it hits the beach, its momentum carries it up as far as it can.
What you saw was a very carefully-planned operation, with an experienced helmsmen at the wheel, acting under orders from an equally-experienced pilot. The Ferry was placed in the exact spot where it was intended to be. It looked impressive, but to the locals is ‘routine’.
The sounding of the ship’s horn is traditional and is considered to be the ‘final action’ in a vessel’s life. Its ‘final breath’ if you will.
Give it six months, and nothing of the ferry will remain.
BTW: The Turks are IMHO only amateurs compared to what the Indians and Pakistani’s are doing in respect of ship-dismantling . Goodling ‘Indian ship-breaking’ may be of interest – especially the area around Gadani, Pakistan.

The guy determined wrong. It was an emergency and he had every right to call 111.
If someone or someones are throwing rocks at my place and breaking windows, of course I’m calling 111 – it’s an attack where injury could result. If you determine it’s not safe enough to walk outside your front door because you might get hit by a rock, then you call 111.
@iMPSusan Devoy is right: there is no real desire to change our current historic flag
What’s that based on? Cherry picked opinion? Here is more opinion:
Now is the right time to look at choosing a fresh flag, Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae says.
Former governor-general Dame Cath Tizard said it was time to get on with changing the flag and a referendum should go out with general election papers, asking voters if they supported a change. Those who did should then choose from one of six options, which would give the Government a guideline.
“Identifying modern New Zealand with a flag is not rejecting the values, contributions and sacrifices of the past,” she said.
The nation should not wait to become a republic or for the Queen to die before changing the flag, a sentiment shared by the monarch, she said.
“I’ve discussed this with the Queen and she said these things were a matter for New Zealand itself to decide – she’s quite sanguine on these issues.”
Stiffyboy, You should become a court of appeal or supreme court judge, that way you can play judge and jury with the evidence you clearly don’t understand much, like Justice Tipping back in 2003, the case is so ‘straightforward’ that the crown experts can’t even agree on the evidence, yet an arrogant amateur like yourself clearly knows way more than them not to mention the 5 law lords at the PC.
You are a dunce Stiffy and have no clue!
I think Malcolm Burgess should present the crown case against Pora to the law lords. Then he can argue that “Pora has been convicted by 2 juries, so legally it is not possible that Pora is innocent”, this would be a laugh. This should be a straightforward one, there is no case against Pora and the conviction should be quashed with no retrial. Even most of the amateurs here seem to acknowledge his innocence.
The thing that really pisses me off, as one of my lecturers was fond if telling me, ” even a farmer’s wife with a Standard 4 education…” would know with what has transpired on Pora the crown has not got a snowball’s chance in hell of winning this at the PC…just as they will not win if they finally go ahead with Lundy.
A disgusting WASTE OF MONEY – OUR MONEY.
And before anyone accuses me of using clichés…. well, cliches are clichés…because, invariably, they are TRUE.
If you were in the school would you have tried to encourage the girl to talk to her parents, or simply got in touch with the parents and told them?
Is the school’s responsibility to the child first or the parents? If the kid had accused the parents of abusing her would you have got in touch with the parents first, later, not at all or someone else?
This can not be the same Rowan who writes angry & abusive rants at the sweet and mild Kea, advising him that other peoples opinions should not be questioned and abuse should not be used. Because that would be very two faced, if it were the same guy !
Like most parents, we pay our children’s school fees, but if our school sent home “paid” tags that could be attached to the kids bags, clothes or whatever, I would be telling the school where to stick their fees. What kind of an asshole conceives of such an idea which can only serve to humiliate kids who aren’t responsible for the choices their parents make? Might as well make the non-payers wear a star on their shirt or something.
20kms in 1:35’59” – far out….I’m glad that shit’s over. I saw a certain blog God was celebrating cracking a single 5 min km. Try keeping it up every single km for 20 in a row. Or 30. Sorry – I had to throw that one in there – will try to cease and desist.
Ok – issues –
(1) Do they use peanut butter to get Toni Street’s mouth to contort in the same pleasing manner as Mr Ed or does she somehow perform that impressive motion without the use of high voltage electricity being pumped into her jaw ?
(2) Flag. Change it. Union Jack outdated. Too similar to Aussie one. If you have to point out the differences to outsiders – it’s failed the same way a joke that needs explaining does. Soldiers died so everyone didn’t end up speaking German – not for a flag.
(3) Paul Henry. Thankfully someone on TV who’s not a crowd-pleasing crony serving up crusty cruddy claptrap crap from their trap.
(4) Compulsory bicycle hi-viz vests. Yep – because that will be interesting watching the same number of riders snuffed out all wearing dayglo highlighters.
Right – I ran 20 – so that’s worth 20 downticks – one for every km. Come on – I’ve earned those f*****s !! I’ve even starred out the word fuckers for you, what more could you possibly ask for, huh ??
Based on looking at all the various rants throughout GD, I wonder where all the angry and abusive rants come from? Also if we were to look at Keas abusive posts and trolling, would anyone else consider him to be ‘sweet and mild’ ?
The two faced troll on KB is actually none other than yours truly, Kea the Bird Brain.
Your level of arrogance is astonishing!
The crown have committed to retrying Lundy which will be going ahead in June, They don’t have a hope in hell, athough no idea whether Lundy is guilty or not, the evidence is just that weak that they have no chance.
I expect it to end up like the train wreck that is the crown case against Bain, the tax lawyer will probably use one of her hired guns to write a written to perscription essay on why Lundy shouldn’t be compensated, remind you of anything? This is before we even get started on Pora. What do you think would be suitable compensation for Pora for 20 years inside? would have to be around $5m IMO
Don’t understand the logic behind the makeup of the blackcaps eleven for this game, Never even heard of Matt Henry, Anderson had his ‘rest’ in Hamilton so why he he not playing? Neesham is hopeless and offers nothing with bat or ball, surely there is better options out there!
If you were in the school would you have tried to encourage the girl to talk to her parents, or simply got in touch with the parents and told them? ”
I heard the woman on air. Did you? In this particular case I would have of course strongly encouraged the girl to contact her parents. There is not way I would have arranged the abortion.
In regards your second question there may be very rare circumstances involving different cultures where it may be best not to tell the parents. I have heard of “honour” killings. In such case there should be immediate access to the Family Court.
I am totally unsure on Lundy, but the evidence that remains, as the PC observed, raises questions.
But are they big enough to get a guilty verdict given what has gone on? Your description of the train wreck seems apt.
I live in hope that they (Crown Law) will see sense and withdraw. But is too much to hope. When he is found not guilty, as you rightly observe, it will be Bain in drag. Collins only hope of avoiding a major scandal is to call it quits on both cases, then bring in a CCRC to look at other cases.
Pora…. given that the poor bugger will be incarcerated for a further six or more months, $5 million, perhaps a bit more(?), does sound about right. It is a pity that some or all of those responsible cannot be required to meet a goodly portion of the total.
All my points are very tame in comparison to yourself, you are one to talk about abuse and complain about others, you seem to think that you should be treated as ‘special’ and that other standards apply to everyone else but you, but in reality you are nothing but an abusive troll.
He’s converted 2 innings into decent scores but he has also had some 5 runs from 25 balls type innings…sure he looks in good form and is probably our best limited overs opener, but is it too much to expect to get a few singles to take pressure off?
Might do likewise, am hoping that Jesse Ryder can cash in on one of his fast starts, about 20 seems to be the standard offering from him but hopefully he can kick on and get a good score.
The excitement machine known as cricket is so riveting that if I accidentally caught a very small fraction of a nanosecond of it into the faintest recesses of my peripheral vision while blinking, I would slip into the deepest coma in the history of all that’s known to exist, from which state of limbo neither death nor life is any longer possible. Brendon McCullum could hit a six right into my googlies point blank followed by exhausting the national supply of bats breaking them in half on my bonce creating the world’s most expensive pile of high sheen firewood and all he’d score is a duck.
Thanks MH – brilliant. I’m delegating all of my rhyming work to you from now on. Are you up for it ?
Kea the Bird Brain. That’s some top shelf trash talk there. Really hurtful. That’s like paying off a taxi driver big bucks to step on it and they do no more than exactly 4km over the limit.
For anyone interested in my training diet to help their exercise efforts, the latest fad was a menu that included porridge with banana and tinned peaches, tin of beetroot, creamed corn, jar of olives, 100g pick and mix sweets, 400g tinned salmon and a cucumber.
You’ll be running like Popeye and with the wind-assisted backside turbo boost? Why, you’ll blow everyone else away. Literally.
Of course I know no-one gives a shit what anyone else eats. Eat my dust. How’s that ?
The New Zealand side look a little bitter as they trudge off the field of play, while the Indians seem to have realised what a lucky escape they have got out of this one. Jadeja has built on the good work of both Dhoni and Ashwin as India manage to tie this high-scoring thriller off the very last ball. New Zealand will be leaving with heavy hearts as they ponder just how they let this one go?

Nostalgia-NZ – that the Black Caps stuffed up their batting after a great start, made mistakes in the field and didn’t bowl well at times and still managed to draw is not a bad result over the world number one team.
Thank goodness you’re not the Black Caps coach, Pete!
Pete – maybe they should let the Indians win one to be fair?
Luckily Williamson and Taylor are in god mode and will rebuild from here.
I’m struggling to remember the last time a NZ batsman was in good a form those two are now. Maybe Guptill last year against Zimbabwe and SA (although then the tests rolled around and he got knocked back to reality lol)
LR&C the crackpot mystic calls it: He gives you visions…. of the future muhahahahahahaha…….
2046….. John Key joins a very exclusive club of PMs to die in office at age 85 having won the last 13 general elections in a row. With the great Sir John’s last words he softly spoke of his great love for the Green Party and could never thank them enough for increasing National’s majority in proportion with National’s ever more generous financial donations to their election campaigns.
Also Heil Helen takes over the UN in a coup and introduces a universal global lightbulb made from recycled materials and chemically altered wool strands (NZ’s sheep population will explode into the low 100s of millions) that burns brightly for 1 000 000 hours each with only the small downside of a 30 watt output. Nations that initially reject the bulbs will be reduced to a South Auckland state house level of living standards by concentration camp style trade sanctions until they agree to adopt them. A bright idea that saves the Earth at the very small cost of considerable eye strain.
I didn’t mean anything like concede to the Indians – to the contrary, already having an excellent series win the Black Caps are in a position to take risks to push for a comprehensive result.
The innings seems to be building nicely after a cautious start.
Ryder (especially and Guptill haven’t done many great things themselves but have always made a start that hasn’t been disastrous giving the batsmen following a good chance to do well. And that’s been happening. Including today so far.
dime – throw enough mud at the wall…. It’s not Eddie Murphy Raw funny but hey…. what is ?
nickb – I’m just a quacky quirky qwerty cracker ?? I’m shooting for crack-up, not shooting crack up. Are you trying to say my cheese might’ve slipped off its cracker ? I just slipped through the cracks – that’s all.
What would people say is a competitive first innings total for a ODI in Wellington?
I’ve just been playing around with the statistics on Cricinfo. I can’t figure out how to find the average score for the team batting first, but from what I can make out, 250+ would be a pretty competitive score.
And I threw in an extra week for free too – I could’ve repassworded my ass out of hock in time for 20 Jan. I’m just far too kind and generous to the rest of humanity. Where’s my parade for being far far far too much and so damned cute with it ?
Demerits are like motorbikes. You haven’t really joined the club until you’ve canned off. And I’ve crashed every type of vehicle there is and taken naps in most forms of moving metal.
And the demerits are just like my old shitarse job driving large pieces of junk full of self-loading living dead cattle on two legs. They could’ve chucked me any old time they wanted – I was late every single day to work. 1, 2, 3 – you’re out of here. But I was late every single day for years. And the insults and banter has been going on here for ages – I’ve been around over a year now – nothing ever happened. It wasn’t like – Len Brown sex scandal level of shock – it was just – oh ok. Well that could’ve happened at any time and now it has. So – that’s fine, someone can spell out exactly where the line is for me.
I have been reliably informed that “the bridesmaid” stigie is out of action for the weekend living it up at a wedding in Queen Charlotte Sound, some luxury resort. Just in case you were wondering or not.
nazzer – you are indeed as always the wise wizened wizard, a wheal whizz….
I got booted because of some kind of weirdo internet stalker slime that oozed into the place setting up multiple accounts so they could tell me just how much they loved me. Of course this idiot is going to do whatever they can to get rid of me. Pretending to be lots of different people, hello ?? Yeah – I’m the one with a problem. Setting up multiple accounts initially to target one other KB user. Yeah – I’m the one with the problem.
On the office romance thread my numerous posts were showing that this idiot, with who knows how many accounts, was adding multiple downvotes to each post. I don’t give a shit about downvotes – it matters only that it shows how pathetic this twerp is. Claiming that I’m a monster while pretending to be different people. Good one.
So what – can a user have as many accounts on here as they want ? Can I have ten different usernames and accounts and post using all of them at one time and pretend they’re all different people ?
I don’t know exactly how it’s done but “Petal”, one of the mods on Whale’s blog posted this last year (8 June):
….”The only thing that ever amused me was redbaiter leaving a comment, and within 10 minutes he would have 15 upvotes, when it takes an hour or so for anyone else to accumulate that many. It was when he started saying he was the most popular and publicly supported commenter as “proven” by his accumulated upvotes that it was time to expose him. Yes, it can be rigged. Easily so. You want upvotes? Go for broke. Just having 4 browsers will get you 3, and that’s before you do anything more exciting than that like use your tablet and phone as well. I found it amusing he decided to trade on it. Of course, he didn’t like to be called on it, asking if I thought he would really do that on purpose. I replied in the positive, as it was very obviously rigged (unless he has a few dozen acolytes on stand-by at all times). His ability to “outperform” any of the prolific and genuinely popular commenters by a factor of 3-4, and to do so not throughout the day but within 20 minutes of posting was a little too odd for it to be believable. “……
Nasska – exactly. It’s the internet. And….. yep.. it’s the internet. So for me I’m shut down by an actual troll with multiple accounts who doesn’t give a single fuck about this site or anyone or anything on it really – just wants to take me down. Cool.
I suppose 59 comments isn’t actually a bad effort starting on November 8 for someone who probably couldn’t care less and has no real interest in the place. Wow – that’s even only slightly less than one comment per day on average. Cranking them out like nobody’s business.
I’d already seen the Redbaiter upvote thing but you’ve just hit it out of the park so thanks for that. Shit you’re useful mate. You’re like no. 8 wire or something. KB duct tape – just wrap your brain around shit and watch it keep ticking along forever and a day.
Just tried to turn on 1 News for the first time in years. Wanted to see some of the Tolley v Turei inane catfight, and especially Crusher weighing in.
I get to the third story which is of some feral looking woman whining that her brat might be bullied because she doesn’t have a tag for paying her school donations. Ms Hillbilly is concerned this “will reflect badly on her as a parent”.
Of course it reflects badly on you?! I sympathise to the extent politicians proclaim us to have “free” education but you are really just doing your kids and your kids’ school/teachers a disservice by being a tight arse or not being able to afford it…schools aren’t profitable corporates you know?
One of the idiosyncrasies of Kiwiblog is the political & theological tendencies of many of those who comment here & even those who vote on those comments.
Our host is of a socially liberal & fiscally conservative bent & as such, an easy fit within the National Party yet his blog attracts religious fruitloops & conservonutters by the hundreds. Even DPF himself is regularly attacked by them on the basis that he is too liberal.
If you want your “Karma” scores to always be positive may I suggest…..
1) Think of the most outlandish piece of conservoshit you can think of & push it hard. eg all beneficiaries should be stoned to death would do the trick.
2) Learn to love Baby Jesus….never under any circumstances say anything vaguely positive about another religious grouping or deny the existence of an imaginary Skydaddy.
3) Always type the name of Our Saviour, Colin Craig, with your head bowed & reverence in your heart, for he is The Great Messiah sent to save us all from the degenerate heathens.
OR you could always do what I do & extend two fingers to those who know better than me how to live my life. Your “Karma” score will be as bad as mine but at least you can face tomorrow with a smile.
nasska – I think about the smile option and then I think…mmmm….I don’t think so and take the ‘stay in bed blank expression of who gives a shit’ option.
Great post – of course a fanboy would say that.
Do you know what would be cool ? If it turned out there were really two Gods called Adam and Steve. Obviously both bent as boomerangs and camp as anything. That would be what I call a plot twist. All the lovely fresh arrivals to heaven will have no trouble showing their loving respect for a happy couple.
You know nazz – what is it with you ? Every 60+ talkback caller has the same punchdrunk sad cracking shaky voiced last legs drone and carbon copy shared collective socially-programmed brainfart outdated bollocky set of dinosaur views. How do you manage to be as old as fuck and yet so utterly unlike the 99.9% of cloney crones of your generation ? Do you sometimes feel like Darwin would have ?
I see that Mickey Mouse type person .. You know the page boy for the silent t who is also known as the greasy fella in the pin stripe suit.. Is doing a moan about the media using unflattering photos of their great white hope. For gods sake he is not an oil painting with his stupid I know better than you smirk.
Good on ya nazz. I might have to retire for the evening and as I drift off toward, and with any luck, a better place – not smiling at all – most likely grimacing in a manner not unlike someone constipated somewhere around the defcon four level of blue moon agony – I’ll be contemplating how much better off this country would be if everyone had to wear a hi-viz and the poor-off kids were given all the food they’ll ever need by starry-eyed lefties. And how much better off the families will be if they get a helping handout of $60 per week breeder’s bread. And how much less dysfunctional and better behaved the lower social echelons will be once they receive their little sprinklings of pixie sparkle glitter.
If only that had been the way when I was a wee nipper. I know that would have made a difference in my life. I could’ve been the next Bill Gates if only I’d had a better start and worn a hi-viz more often, like walking to and from school as they do nowadays. And a sun hat in the summer terms instead of melting my head. It’s the bulletproof feeling of assurance you get from brightly coloured synthetic safety clothing – swaddled up in an emotional state more receptive to the possibilities of this green/ blue paradise.
Hey – do you remember when I did a straight comparison between your life and RBs and he seemed to melt like the wicked witch right out of the place ? Well – could have been mere co-incidence. Or all the non-stop praying I did to my personal saviours Adam and Steve. Or the pins I kept sticking in dolls and chanting and clapping and cucumber-yarring. Aaaaah – I miss the good old days. Yes – it was a different time back in 2013. You could call an expensive jacket worn by a fat schoolgirlish sounding party co-leader vile, wrong and ugly and still watch your support in the polls climb like a skyrocket. We didn’t know how good we had it.
The man who said eight weeks ago that the New Zealand cricket team would take on the BEST team in the world at the one day game and thrash them 4 1/2 to 1/2.
I told him that whatever he had been drinking, I will have a quart of it.
This is the most unbelievable achievement in New Zealand’s cricketing history.

So how many knee-joint operations could be done instead of this exercise in futility and a nice trip to OZ for management.
“Trolls are not real just like David Bain’s innocence”
On such a basis Kea, you do not exist, Reality check unfortunately for the rest of us you do, the mythical story book ‘troll’ does not exist but the viral KB troll Kea does. Back to reality Bain is innocent, and nothing you or the Auckland tax lawyer can do or say will change this.
Motto for Kea, must do better.
Stunning thrashing of india in the final ODI game in Wellington, masterful stuff from Ross Taylor and a good bowling performance by the new guy Matt Henry, I had never previously heard of him but he had a solid first up performance and showed he has a bright future, would still have gone for Anderson over Neesham who IMO does nothing to justify a place in the 13 let alone the eleven.
Guptill has continued his batting as though he were opening in a test, I think it is certain that was a deliberate admin decision looking toward the tests. I don’t think there has ever been a recent time when the BC’s have had both the depth and solid enterprise to dig into the top drawer bowlers to initiate them against top international competition and continue winning. Good early rounds.
“If any of you were wondering what shite looks like here’s a photo.”
No you did not show the gutless filth who attacked a man with dogs, backed up with tasers, guns, all their filth mates, and a corrupt system. What cowards. Almost all filth are vile sexually deviant power tripping cowards. It does not matter how nice and decent your filth mates are. When challenged they back each other up and decency is forgotten. It is not about right or wrong for filth. It is about fitting in. Same for soldiers and other government departments. Right wing shills forget the filth and soldiers are the enforcement arm of political whim. Grow up nasska.
