    What has happened to the Sabin court case?

    When is the blanket suppression order likely to be lifted?

    • mickysavage 1.1

      Couldn’t possibly say 😀

    • Lanthanide 1.2

      I assume you are a referring to the court case that the speaker of the house mentioned Mike Sabin is involved in. Unfortunately there are no further details in the public domain about Mike Sabin’s court case.

      However, there may be other court cases you are referring to, perhaps you should ask about them?

      • Anne 1.2.1

        No, I wasn’t referring to any other court cases. Just curiosity with a mild dash of cheeky humour which mickysavage seems to have appreciated.

    As noted in open mike Mihirangi Forbes resigned today apparently because of managerial interference in a story she was going to run on the Kohanga Reo movement. Pass the bananas …

    • Clemgeopin 2.1

      She should replace Paddy Gower who needs a kick up his bum and kicked out of journalism asap for his stupid, blatantly biased, unfair, dirty politics type of crap reporting.

      • James 2.1.1

        So save Jorno’s you agree with and fire the others who you don’t like, in order to get an “unbiased” MSM.

        You can see the irony right?

        • Clemgeopin 2.1.1.1

          No, I don’t mind criticism as long as it is honest, balanced and constructive. Not the complete horse shit meted out by crap commentators like Paddy Gower, Paul Henry and Mike Hosking. Have you listened to those three arse holes masquerading as ‘journalists/commentators’? Have you? What do you think about them, James? Can you name any ‘left wing’ favouring jornos that have shown arse hole type of commenting like these three idiots, James? If so, please name them here. Cheers!

    • tc 2.3

      Maxwells silver hammer in action as designed

    • Clemgeopin 2.4

      Something rotten is happening in the land of the long white cloud. It is getting dirty and grey.

      John Campbell, Julian Wilcox and now Mihingarangi Forbes!

      The dark right wing vultures, seen and unseen, are now in charge taking over the country, the media, the dissemination of information, the controlling of public awareness, questioning voices, exposure of wrongs and essential accountability.

      Enjoy the pro-government RW Mark Weldon, Paora Maxwell, Paul Henry, Mike Hosking, Leighton Smith, Farrar, Whale oil……

      What has New Zealand done to deserve this crap!

      We cry for you, a-o-te-a-ro-a.

      Journalism, the fourth pillar of democracy, needs to wake up and take courageous notice of the dark forces stealthily destroying the fabric of our society!

    Here is an interview by Andrew Little about the Labour Party review report.

    When Did Girls Start Wearing Pink?

    Little Franklin Delano Roosevelt sits primly on a stool, his white skirt spread smoothly over his lap, his hands clasping a hat trimmed with a marabou feather. Shoulder-length hair and patent leather party shoes complete the ensemble.

    I can just imagine the homophobes of today going nuts if anyone today dressed a boy like that.

    • Lanthanide 5.1

      Those were the societal norms of the time. Dressing a boy like that today would be against societal norms – and you don’t have to be a “homophobe” to think so.

      • Molly 5.1.1

        But you are tending towards “homophobia” if you are discomforted at the sight of a small boy dressing in societal norms of “girl’s” clothing.

        If you watch the reactions of adults (and some other children) in early childhood centres – some adults (and children) react very strongly to young males dressing in skirts and female clothing. (Unfortunately, some also make comment when young female children dress in police or fire uniforms, or super hero costumes).

        In some ways in that era, society was more comfortable with close platonic same-sex associations.

        There was a good article on http://www.filmsforaction.org, called Touch Isolation: How Homophobia has robbed all men of touch which has a couple of good links, including one to a montage of historic photos of men together. My mother spoke of how it was normal for her and a female friend to walk in town hand in hand in their late teens. We’ve both won some and lost some in our road to acceptance for all.

        Reading on child development many years ago, I found a statistic that said in current Western culture the majority of boys would stop receiving affectionate physical touches at the age of six.

        If that is true, then is it any wonder that ALL touch becomes sexualised for those men?

        • Lanthanide 5.1.1.1

          “But you are tending towards “homophobia” if you are discomforted at the sight of a small boy dressing in societal norms of “girl’s” clothing.”

          I disagree it is homophobia, or in fact that it is even wrong.

          Social norms are social norms. In some cultures it is normal to kiss strangers you meet on the cheek. That sort of behaviour would be seen as unusual / discomfortable in NZ, but that doesn’t mean we’re racist to think that way.

          • Molly 5.1.1.1.1

            “…Social norms are social norms. In some cultures it is normal to kiss strangers you meet on the cheek. That sort of behaviour would be seen as unusual / discomfortable in NZ, …

            Sometimes Lathanide, I think we are living in two completely different NZs.

            • Lanthanide 5.1.1.1.1.1

              We must be, given that I have *never* seen anyone in NZ kiss strangers on the cheek, nor experienced it myself.

              • Molly

                In social (not business) situations, many of our cultures – kiss on the cheek when you are being introduced to someone.

                Even in some Pakeha families this is an accepted norm – definitely Maori and Pasifika cultures don’t blink an eye at this, even if it is not practised by all.

                (If you have ever attended a marae powhiri, this is part of the protocol – an acceptable subsitute for a hongi.)

        • Colonial Rawshark 5.1.1.2

          But you are tending towards “homophobia” if you are discomforted at the sight of a small boy dressing in societal norms of “girl’s” clothing.

          And? Shall we mandate psychological therapy for these discomfited people? Perhaps we need to label them with something – maybe Subclinical Homophobia? We could design a diagnostic regimen – maybe a slideshow of children in various dresses, while they are hooked up to electrical monitors? Or what do you want done with them?

          • Molly 5.1.1.2.1

            ” Or what do you want done with them?”

            Nothing, really. It is more an observation than a judgement. I have enough on my plate dealing with my own failings than thinking I can fix anyone elses.

            Perhaps, recognise when you feel discomfort at a sight that is injurious to no-one, perhaps that is a time to ask yourself why?

    The Nation this weekend looks like it is going to be interesting.

    Anyone know what time it airs? I may have to do something unusual and head to a house that has a functioning TV aerial.

    • weka 6.1

      Sat 9.30am. There’s a livestream, I’ll post it from my phone.

      What’s on?

    • mickysavage 6.2

      Tell us more …

      • lprent 6.2.1

        Not allowed to.

      • Clemgeopin 6.2.2

        May be Judith is going to dance again?…and this time may be do a tango with the hair puller?…Don’t know…just a wild guess!

        Or may be McCully will come on the show accompanied with all the eleven million sheep he has managed to bring back from Saudi….(plus some goats).

        Ha! I know! Key, McCully, English, Joyce, Bridges, Parata, Woodhouse, Tolley, Flavel, Dunne, Bennett and Smith will all announce their joint resignation!

    Sudden Onset Of Ice Loss In Antarctica Detected

    A group of scientists, led by a team from the University of Bristol, has observed a sudden increase of ice loss in a previously stable region of Antarctica. The research is published in Science.

    Using measurements of the elevation of the Antarctic ice sheet made by a suite of satellites, the researchers found that the Southern Antarctic Peninsula showed no signs of change up to 2009. Around 2009, multiple glaciers along a vast coastal expanse, measuring some 750km in length, suddenly started to shed ice into the ocean at a nearly constant rate of 60 cubic km, or about 55 trillion litres of water, each year.

    This makes the region the second largest contributor to sea level rise in Antarctica and the ice loss shows no sign of waning.

    Well, that puts paid to the but, but the ice around Antarctica is increasing whinge that we’ve been hearing from the climate deniers.

    • mickysavage 7.1

      When the last piece of ice is ready to slide off and the last polar bear is ready to die they will still deny that climate change is happening …

    And we have Vector looking at selling its gas distrubution/reticulation assets to the Chinese 🙁

    It would be a game changer though, if perhaps Genesis bought the assets, perhaps in a joint venture with the NZ Super Fund…
