    Fees for kiwis travelling to UK airports up, and reduction in working visas for kiwis, all under Key’s watch while his great friend, David Cameron is in power. This sway some people think Key has on the world stage has manifested itself how, exactly?

    Grabbing selfies and golf games with presidents and Pm’s is not the same as actually having any weight with them.

    The John Key audio is interesting. On the issue of New Zealand becoming a republic he commented that he had said that it was inevitable and that in all probability that was right but there would be a long time scale.

    Which is it? Is it inevitable or will it happen in all probability? Gee the guy is loose with his language.

      he doesnt care as long as he gets his knighthood first. And as a proud kiwi, he will bypass wellington, and head to Buck house to get it, just like that other proud kiwi, Sir Douglas “where is my director’s fee” Graham

    • Lanthanide 3.2

      There’s no conflict there.

      Things that are inevitable will happen in all probability.

      • Naturesong 3.2.1

        Things that are inevitable will happen in all certainty.

        They do mean different things.
        “In all probability” indicates that there is a chance that it may not happen. “Inevitable” describes that the event is certain, it’s the timeline that is in doubt.

    the media is totally self centred. they focus on the doings of the lowlife and no new world news is reported unless it has a kiwi connection. It s going from bad to worse.

    Last Friday evening less than five minutes into the six o’clock news on TV3 the big story was an American man who had hoarded lots of collectables including Maori heads. Either the second or the third most important story of the day in the whole world, it seems.

    The video is the story!

    Check out this footage from Auckland Action Against Poverty’s ‘Block Party’ outside the National Party Ball, set to Street Chant’s cover of There Is No Depression In New Zealand

    It should be one of the first things the Green/Labour government does …bring the MSM media into line

    Tuesday morning and the lead story on Morning report is Oscar Pistorius appearing in court. The first morning with the new presenters we had Peter Jackson’s plane being used in the search for the missing plane as the lead story. With the dedicated sports presenter in each bulletin now and the half hourly traffic reports, it’s been downhill on Morning report. Clearly celebrity status is a major issue to consider when choosing what stories to run.

      Thanks for the tip. I only check the list of audio files each morning on RNZ’s website. Will be watching.
