    It’s the nats Jim but not as we know it .
    Arvo funny for you

  2. mike 2

    Australian bank profits are obscene but its up to the customers to vote with their feet and move banks their are options

  3. James 3

    Two holidays back home ? The minister really did his homework on this one.

    No wonder he was so smug.


    Reading between the lines Cindy must be hating this.

    Robert Guyton @3.1
    There have been no signs of intelligence in this clusterfuck.

    • Dukeofurl 4.1

      He probably gets paperwork for 10 cases per DAY to make a decision on deport or not.
      Maybe one was slipped in amount the others by the corrupt immigration staff? Who knows

      • Chris T 4.1.1

        I have noticed your initial reaction to any mistake Labour make seems to be leaping to a fairly extreme conspiracy theory involving everyone else but them.

        It’s cool and all that. Each to their own.

        Just personally find it quite amusing

        • Cinny

          Like the theory that national were involved in getting jlr sectioned, which turned out to be true……..


          • Chris T

            You missed the bit where National had him sectioned against his will, so they could steal his computers and phones and delete all the recordings, while talking staff into saying the were abused by him two days later, while they secretly were planning it 2 months ago, and it was a massive move by Collins to undermine Soymun.

            And only the great epitomy of honesty and trustworthiness Slater should be taken on his word

            • Dukeofurl

              We weren’t taking Slater at his word, just that this time there was more truth in his version than Bridges version.
              The stuff about immigration decisions is essentially correct. Corrupt…goes without saying based on the investigations into their own staff…which at one time even involved INZ head, a most reprehensible fraudster.

            • Cinny

              Anything is possible.

          • Fireblade

            Chris T was pushing the conspiracy theory that Clare Curran and Trevor Mallard leaked Simon’s travel expenses. How ridiculous!

        • Ankerrawshark


          To Chris t and BM. I think Gordon Campbell puts this immigration issue in excellent perspective……..

      • Gabby 4.1.2

        Slick Bodges’ 2nd cousie twoice rimoved.

    • Gabby 4.2

      Be nice to hear from Baarpbaarp Coleman on this wouldn’t it Nastiman. Even if it’s just Baaarp unmitigatedselfbaaarpservingbullbaaarpshit baaarp.

    Jacinda Ardern ‘world’s most charismatic leader’ – UK political strategist

    “You’re very lucky in New Zealand. Jacinda is probably the most charismatic single figure, democratic leader in the world at the moment. It’s not just that she’s popular – it’s that she is something special, and everyone sees it. She’s fresh, she’s a star, she’s the real thing”


    • Ed 5.1

      Compulsive reading for BM and James….

    • patricia bremner 5.2

      Thanks Fireblade, I have met her on a number of occasions and always feel more hopeful and happy she is our PM.

      • Dukeofurl 5.2.1

        Yes. Compare the active measures to keep some privacy for Neave, compared to Bridges who has flogged his family and new baby for the woman’s mags in home photo shoots on multiple occasions. His political image gets more important than his kids . It’s vile

    • Fireblade 5.3

      Also from the link above:
      Newshub online Poll at 9.30pm 1/11/2018
