    Today’s graphic is in recognition of the social media shitstorm Pepsi has created by its latest ad in trivialising protest movements in the sale of its sugared up sucrose.

    Today I watched a bit of parliament. During the General debate several Labour Māori MPs slammed the “Māori Elite Party” for supporting the Nats and not doing anything for struggling, low income Māori.

    In the debate on the Research Legislation Amendment Bill, Denis O’Rourke of NZ First slammed the bill.

    Eugenie Sage called the bill a Nick Smith special. He claims it’s about cutting red tape. Sage says it’s about taking reserves for housing: reserves that are for recreation and for what they contribute to the ecology of the environment.

    Michael Wood was very thorough and spoke well in dismantling various aspects of the Bill.

    Dr Death Johnathon Coleman found out about the typhoid outbreak on television, obviously it can’t have been very important for the Doctors and the Health Department, definitely a Third World Health system run by monkeys = JOKE

      Maybe the Hospital is overstretched and understaffed and the patients have first call on the job with a hopeless Minister way down the List.

    I hear that the Consul General for the Philippines Paulo Garcia may become National’s New Lynn candidate tonite. There is quite a bit of background. I am putting this out publicly now so that reference to it in the future can be made.

      That’s not intercompany rivalry coming out there is it mickey? He didn’t take a client did he?

      Interesting he worked for the company that is now representing people who claim to be afghans affected by Operation Burnham.

      Note he is the Honorary Consul. NZ has dozens of similar helping us out overseas.

    I’m loving the whole rich people suing the leader of a so called workers party. And blindly and dumbly people are just rolling with it. The so called social democrat’s on this site are just sucking it up. Not that this type of rough justice, designed to intimidate is not business as usual from the far right in this country.

    But, lets do nothing, moan a little bit maybe. But nothing to see here as long as labour know there place – right. Don’t ever, ever, ever, question the rich. Who cares if they are doggie, they are to be respected and will bankrupt anyone who defies them.

    You know we are by definition vertebrates, so sometimes that means you have to act act like you have a backbone.

    The Scenic Hotel owners will rot in hell for this. We should remind them of that fact.

      “The Scenic Hotel owners will rot in hell for this. ”

      For what? What exactly have they done, that is so morally repugnant to you, that makes you want such a fate for them?

      • adam 5.1.1

        Want, no such thing. They are going to hell, pure and simple. Want has nothing to do with it, that is your fetish.

        • inspider

          ok take out the want. What exactly have they done, that is so morally repugnant to you, that makes you state this is the fate for them? What is the ‘this’ you refer to?
