    Just to say this, I sorely miss Colonel Viper’s contribution to these pages.
    If you still follow this blog Colonel Viper I order your immediate return to duty.
    PLEASE.
    Can officers of high rank make this happen?.

    • mauī 1.1

      Exiled to twitter.

    • swordfish 1.2

      CV on Twitter

    • Ed 1.3

      I agree.

    • the pigman 1.4

      I know you’re trolling, but you can watch him self-destruct on twitter if it floats your boat. As widely anticipated, he has now completed his disavowal of the Left, and worships the at the altar of the tin foil hat.

      • ropata 1.4.1

        I think CV is becoming a nihilist, but he’s still interesting to follow

        • greywarshark 1.4.1.1

          Thanx Ropata you provide balance. It seems that CV has not taken enough time off from following international affairs, that “controlled insanity” mentioned somewhere and he has become over-stressed.

          Everyone has to remember, I am just one little person who can do a lot, but can’t take the world’s problems on my shoulders. Keeping trying for a better one takes you into a worthy group though.

          CV deserves better than the swingeing scorn of some here.

    “Why am I such an arrogant arsehole… because this is the size of my penis”

    Hosking the most hated broadcaster in NZ, and our taxes pay his salary.

    When the government changes can some one please give him the boot. Thanks.

    Admin please delete if in appropriate, couldn’t help myself with this pic.

    • Ed 2.1

      My taxes pay his salary.
      That annoys me.

      • David Mac 2.1.1

        TVNZ returns a profit, they take money off Toyota and contribute to our wellbeing. One of their primary earners is Hosking.

        Hosking isn’t to blame, we are, it’s us that make him a ratings winner.

        The way to counter-act the Hosking message is not to spit in his face but to offer something people prefer to watch.

        We need a Kiwi John Oliver.

        • Ed 2.1.1.1

          ‘We are’?
          I never watch him.
          I don’t have the opportunity to offer the people of NZ an option to him.

          • David Mac 2.1.1.1.1

            Yes, the 4.5 million of us are to blame for his popularity.

            Yes, many don’t watch him. Enough do to make him a ratings winner.

            Have you got an iPhone and a tripod? I’ve got a script and Draco can do a stand-up, looks like a young Omar Sharif.

        • Ed 2.1.1.2

          We need a Kiwi Jonathan Pte.
          Oliver is average.

          • David Mac 2.1.1.2.1

            Yeah Ed!

            Something like that. If Hosking is as good as we get, there’s a big opening there.

            I don’t mind someone brilliant scooting around in a Ferrari, but Hosking?

            • Ed 2.1.1.2.1.1

              Sadly TVNZ and TV3 only invest in right wing shock jocks.

              • David Mac

                No. They invest in whatever makes the most money.

                If someone like John Clarke was still alive and pitched an idea to TV execs I think that we’d stand a good chance of having a very popular show with a left flavor.

                • David Mac

                  …one of Fred Dagg’s dearest mates is Sam Neil. He’s wasting his days away quaffing his down South plonk down South these days. Could be a strong host.

                  • David Mac

                    2 Sams

                    Hosts: Sam Neil and Sam Hunt

                    House band with guest front-men. Jordan Luck, the Finns, Dobyn etc. They do their hits in a different style eg; a reggae Split Enz hit.

                    Vox Pop poetry competition, leave the last line of Hunt’s limerick for a vox pop punter. Film 30, air 3.

                    I’m plucking wobbly ideas out from nowhere but all it will take is the right formula to crush Hosking.

          • Cinny 2.1.1.2.2

            Yes please and thank you 😀

    • James 2.2

      So that’s how you think the left should handle employment law. We don’t like what he says – So let’s fire him and take away his livelihood.

      Charming.

      (despite fairly good ratings – so some people like him)

      • Cinny 2.2.1

        Nah James, we just want someone politically impartial, funny and switched on would be a bonus.

        Being master of ceremonies for Nat Party events is not something an unbiased journalist would do.

        • James 2.2.1.1

          You clearly said could someone give him the boot if labour won.

          Guess employment law doesn’t matter to you when you want to cut down on speach you disagree with.

          • Draco T Bastard 2.2.1.1.1

            It’s a tricky position. But, IMO, there’s two factors that apply:

            1. It’s a public broadcaster and so the political partiality that he shows is not acceptable
            2. Opinions and untruths are not valid subjects for public broadcast

            Both of these should get someone in Hosking’s position and acts as Hosking does fired for lack of professionalism.

  3. Ad 3

    Before people start worrying why they could be so wrong when apparently average household income under this NZHerald participatory survey shows it has gone up under this current government …..

    http://insights.nzherald.co.nz/article/labour-vs-national/

    …….. check out – more instructively – how much worse New Zealand has been getting as a whole economy and as a society:

    http://www.top.org.nz/key_indicators_of_new_zealand_s_inequality_eruption

    • weka 3.1

      I’ve never understood why we use national averages to measure things like that. Because obviously the top end will raise the average upwards. That’s go nothing to do with what various groups of people are living on.

      Lol, just read the second link, looks like I didn’t need Gareth Morgan to explain it to me 😉

    • Ed 4.1

      Sounds like a massive beat up by Farrar, Hooton and the Dirty Politics machine.
      And the MSM continues to bite on their propaganda.

      • Red 4.1.1

        I don’t know you have visa breaches, people out of pocket, secret donars, non declaration of donations, people been thrown under the bus like Matt M and senior alk labour official, less than plausible denials by angry Andy, could all get very juicy as it all slowly unravels towards election, ie timing is everything

    • Cinny 5.1

      Woot !!! Will have to show my eldest this, she rates Jamie big time and can’t understand why the lack of sugar tax with all the evidence out there.

      Mum why don’t we have a sugar tax, why is fizzy cheaper than water??…. Darling lets have a chat about corporate lobbyists…. Ok Mum…

      Thanks for the link Ed

      • weka 5.1.1

        Right won’t do it because of ideology, centre left won’t do it because it penalises poor people. I’d be ok with it if it was done after some other things like a living wage/benefit increases, no GST on fresh food, home economics in schools that teaches cooking whole meals from scratch, and a complete overhaul of health promotion around what healthy food is 😉

  4. weka 6

    Good on Mana for stating they don’t support the death penalty for P importers. But that they didn’t say anything about Harawira targeting Chinese is very disappointing.

    http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1706/S00396/mana-party-no-to-p-and-no-to-executions.htm

    http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2017/06/mana-party-distances-itself-from-harawira-s-execution-calls.html

    • David Mac 6.1

      It’s so hard to get on TV. Hone found a way. Firstly his party will step away from his extreme execution claim, then they will convince him to follow. Hone will hear the wisdom of the Kuia

      Gareth Morgan’s requests to appear on Q & A go unanswered. Hone was invited to speak from many soapboxes, paid for his flights.

      He is onto a hot button up here. The P thing touches many. From the guy that had the LPG bottle swiped from under his BBQ, to the dentist looking at 32 rotten teeth in the jaw of a superannuated 30 year old to the family asked to vacate their home because a cousin had a sneaky pipe in the laundry 18 months ago.

      I think his ‘Lets get rid of this kaka’ platform will get traction.

      He’s up against Kelvin. Winston is defending his general seat. Northland is a great place to be a Beehive Junkie this election. I don’t think imaginary bridges are going to cut it this election. We’re going to need ponies, floats and Landcruisers.

      • weka 6.1.1

        I appreciate all that, and it’s how I took it the first interview I saw. I even understand what he is getting at with targeting Chinese importers because he believes they are the overwhelming suppliers into NZ. But that is still wrong to do because we live in a country that routinely practices racism against Chinese and other Asian people including NZers. So he’s just adding fuel to that fire. Maybe he’s making pragmatic decisions based on what you described, but I’ve been left wondering if he’s actually racist against Chinese people. Really not good for a politician.

        There’s also an extraordinary amount of bigotry against drug users in NZ and he didn’t take enough care around that.

        He’s had lots of criticism for the war on drugs approach for obvious reasons. So was it fair for him to play on those prejudices because of the serious need of his own people?

        • adam 6.1.1.1

          I think it was worse than that weka. It was sexist, as many women are forced to traffic. So Hone now wants to punish/kill women for being forced into trafficking. Again the higher ups in the drug train get a free pass, when we can blame women.

          The other side of the equation is that the tough on drugs approach is an epic failure. Even in the Philippians where they kill drug dealers, people are still taking lots of drugs.

          If we actually confronted the issue as a health issue, we would come to so solutions. But the constant blame the drug user, and treating them like a criminals – just props up private prisons.

          Hone may have been trying to raise the issue. But I thought he had enough nous to understand the basic economics driving the industry of the damned.

          • weka 6.1.1.1.1

            Thanks adam, that’s good perspective. One of the Drug Foundation tweets said HH probably doesn’t understand the Philippine law he is referring to. So if he’s shooting from the hip I’m guessing he’s focussed on Northlanders more than anyone else. I seriously doubt that he is unaware of the economics and societal issues involved, including the value in treating this as a health issue*, but is just sick of waiting for the revolution. I also didn’t hear him blaming drug users.

            I could be wrong though, I don’t know him.

            *although to my mind it’s not only about individual health but community and wider society health.

          • marty mars 6.1.1.1.2

            sexist adam?? that’s a long bow I think. His comments don’t need devilising they are actually stand alone rough enough.

  5. ianmac 7

    The interview that I saw re death penalty, Hone was making the point that by stating an extreme action the Media notice, and start discussing the drug problem. I don’t think he seriously advocates the death penalty except in the figurative sense.

  6. adam 8

    Got to love the corporate democrat’s. Liberalism on public display. This is how it works folks, there is no difference when it is just liberal parties in power. We could try socialism, but that might be a bit much for some.

  7. McFlock 9

    wow. Only took almost thirty years, but cops and a lawyer have been charged over the Hillsborough disaster. OIC and the safety officer have been charged with negligence, and several others have been charged with perversion of justice and misconduct for the cover up.
