    Latest Openparachute blog rankings suggests that TDB had an outstanding month and bet Kiwiblog. The Standard also had another good month and is way ahead of figures for last year.

    Rise of the left?

      Porn, bigotry, hatred, and lies still came out on top. I can’t really understand it, because reading Whalespew makes me think of how Victorians liked to go and watch the patients interned in Bedlam.

      • mickysavage 1.1.1

        A number of people have wondered about the accuracy of his statistics. If they do reflect reality then the gun porn and the videos and the biblical quotes no doubt help.

        • Anne 1.1.1.1

          I don’t believe they are accurate. Don’t ask me what it is (cos I know next to nothing about computers) but he’s using some ‘device’ that falsely inflates the true figures. lprent will probably know how he’s doing it.

          • Draco T Bastard 1.1.1.1.1

            I know KDC did a breakdown on WhaleOil’s page hits and it was obvious from that that most of them were actually bots. IIRC, LPrent did dispute those to some degree though.

    Phil Quin contaced me via twitter recently and objected to a suggestion that I made in a recent post that he was pro capital punishment. On reflection the suggestion was not appropriate and not properly expressed and I have amended the post.

      So, who is Phil Quin?

      He’s a recently returned expat who has decided to throw his weight around by penning three anti Labour pieces in the NZ Herald in the last six months.

      If there is one thing I hate more than current expats riding roughshod over happenings in NZ in their absence, it is recently returned expats telling us how it should be.

      He tried to overthrow Helen Clark in the 90s

      Is Slater and Farrar’s favourite source for Labour bashing quotes.

      Is very depressed; he blogs about it…

      … and it shows, because for the life of him, he cannot see a way out for the socially conscious. He’s all problems and no solutions. He’s given up and seems to want to take the rest of us with him.

      Good luck for the future Phil, you’ll need it.

    Waiting in Brisbane to see if the league test will go ahead. They already cancelled the Ferns’ victory over the Jillaroos, but that may have just been so the Jillaroos wouldn’t lose. The road in the shopping centre down the road is flooded, and idiot drivers are racing through it, splashing water into the shops. The joys of living in an entitled suburb 🙂

    I wonder what punishment Standardistas consider appropriate for the egregious theft of 2800 state houses? I could almost go sharia on this – a lot of Gnats would suddenly be known as ‘the gimp’, or ‘captain hook’ or best of all ‘lefty’. Blake’s tigers have got to be fed.

    We look for vasectomies, whilst our neighbours across the ditch look for IVF.

    What an interesting take on the world.

    We’ve been checking out the Mayday celebrations this morning. It never ceases to amaze me how political the International Workers Day celebrations are in Vienna, compared with how Labour Day is celebrated in NZ.

    Everything is red, traditional bands play, politicians make speeches, asylum seekers, immigrants and refugees from oppression march and condemn totalitarian rule, the Workers Party (aka Communists) picnic in the park. The SPOe takes over the Civic square. Balloons, banners and red flowers are everywhere.

    A blog post from a couple of years ago describes it well.
