    Glad to see Labour MP, Raymond Huo is suing for defamation.

    Anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of malicious slander knows how distressing and destructiive the outcome can be. People can lose their lively-hoods indeed just about everything if the protagonists are allowed to get away with it.

    • Jesus, good luck with that defence:

      “It’s very common in the Chinese community to share information on WeChat if we found something interesting.”

      All good mate, but it’s very common in the NZ community to sue people who publish libel, hence the situation you find yourself in now. I suggest not trying “Libel is OK where I come from” on the judge unless you’re a glutton for punishment.

    Really worried about the standard of governance we are showing.
    Very disorganised.
    Need to be better across the board.

    • The Fairy Godmother 2.1

      Terry I find you a very disappointing troll. You have no arguments and no evidence that the Standanista community can refute. It really won’t help me when I am involved in direct voter contact. We need better trolls. Has the pay rate dropped. What has happened to our trolls?

    • National needs better trolls.

    I’ll donate $1000 to The Standard if Labour re-enters Pike mine and recover the bodies by 2019.

    Oh dear – Claire Trevett at Granny Herald simply can’t help herself, got to stick her bloody oar in and have a stir. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11945994

      Well if Jacinda is going to giggle and gossip like a school girl let loose on the world stage she’s fair game for media attention

      Jack Tame tackled it in a pretty boorish way this morning. Claire Trevett’s report was balanced and reasonable.

      • fireblade 4.1.1

        Jacinda Adern conducts herself well in my view.

        Unlike the immature giggling, gossiping school girl John Key.

        • Grantoc

          I forgot to add that she was garrulous too.

          Her ‘cool’ mate Sainsbury won’t be on her christmas card list after he breathlessly big noted about the gossip on some radio programme, to Adern’s further embarrassment.

      • Psycho Milt 4.1.2

        Well if Jacinda is going to giggle and gossip like a school girl let loose on the world stage she’s fair game for media attention

        Was it worse than blathering to some jerk DJ about which celebs she’d like to fuck? Because that’s a pretty high bar that John Key set for his successors to clear in the “obnoxious loudmouth” stakes.

        • weka

          oh god, I’d forgotten about that. And it just got worse and worse in the years that followed.

          • Psycho Milt

            I thought the most revealing part of that debacle was that he referred to Liz Hurley, at least two years younger than him, as “a little old.” Very character-revealing, I thought.

    You people living in your glass bubble answer these questions for me why are OUR jail full of Maori men / O no its not the system it those bad Maori men.
    You live in your glass bubble and think I would not cheat and think that everyone else thinks the same well sorry that’s not realty in realty everyone has a different personality make up . I figured this out with help from my wife there are a lot of people out there who will lie there arses off and rip you off . And I think that Trump had to deal with all these bullshit artist and that is why he is like he is you do it my way or the highway I’m aloud to change my mind on Trump as I put more thought into his situations and the USA political landscape instead of just taking in the media shit thats broadcast to us I also think Trump pushed Key out as this was unusual and Trump is a unusual politician he has access to a lot of data. The US Political land scape is a tug of war between two partys and they wont let any other party in and dig holes into people past set traps and sling shit and they dont care who gets hurt in these shit sligging matches country’s people these political partys are the big elephant on OUR world not Trump Kia Kaha

    • garibaldi 5.1

      Yes eco maori, both the Republicans and Democrats are corrupt to the core, but so are Trump and the Clintons., Please don’t go empathising with Trump. He is a megalomaniac and is not going to “make America great again'”, he is just accelerating its demise. He is simply a pawn in the hands of the Military/Zionist/Banker power brokers.

    • BM 5.2

      Many Maori have huge chips on their shoulders and don’t have any respect for law and order.

      Laws are just the white man oppressing us, this is our land don’t tell us how to live and behave.
      That’s why there’s so many Maori inside until Maori lose that attitude nothing will change.

      [Fark BM …

      Many men in suits have huge chips on their shoulders and don’t have any respect for law and order.

      Laws are just things the poor need to observe, this is our land don’t tell us how to live and behave.
      That’s why there’s so few white collar criminals inside until the system changes nothing will change – MS]

    Bugger, they’re on to us.


  7. JC 7

    Hilarious read/Fake News from Asia Pacific The Diplomat.

    Appears National’s spin/propaganda not just limited to here ..


    “Honored, privileged, and darn lucky. The new government is a dream coalition that is too good to be true. By next year at this time, it will probably be much like the prime minister’s cat, Paddles, who had had her own viral Facebook page: run over by a car two weeks after the coalition agreement was signed……”

    • Graeme 7.1

      The author…..

      “Jack Edward Effron has formerly served as a Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington, Senior Investigator at the New Zealand Commerce Commission, and adviser to the National Party of New Zealand. ”

      And not a word about how national got themselves into their current position. Oh well, still in the denial phase then.

  8. North 8

    You think any of this is gonna be remembered BM……by anyone but you and a bunch of miffed trolls ? Now if Jacinda had given global television giggling comments about the social perils of having the latest, recently escaped, murderer/child rapist to lunch, as did the gauche weakling Key……then your ‘miffedness’ might be justified. Otherwise……nah. It might go down as Jack Tame’s silly, backfired attempt to score a hit, but not much more.

  9. roy cartland 9

    Gerry Brownlee openly supported torture on RNZ this morning. Guyon is so interrupty, mansplainy and yelly when Jacinda is on – where was Agro Guyon today?
