    Great to see Mihingarangi Forbes has been snapped up by her former TV3 colleague Carol Hirschfeld for Radio NZ’s Maori team.

    I’m sure its been thought of/discussed but are labour 100% sure they have a leaking problem and not a being hacked problem it seems to me to be a great way for an unscrupulous enemy to cause all manner of problems.

    Disability activist Philip Patston’s article on why disability shouldn’t be used as a reason to not legislate the right to die.


    Assisted dying advocate Lucretia Seales died this morning, and later the court released the judgement that ruled against her application for her doctor to help her to die.

      Well said phillip patson.

    • Tracey 3.2

      This is fascinating.


      I don’t understand those who object on the grounds that doctors can just kill anybody, the disabled, the mentally ill because the point of law-making is to assess all the repercussions and legislate accordingly. I would imagine that ANY laws about assisted death would have rigorous criteria, checks and counter checks and so on.

      The debate needs to move, imo, from is it the right thing to do, to what would the criteria/codes etc look like so we can move from fear based reactions to considering if we can create a framework to achieve compassion and safeguards.

      A lot of peoples TV watching is habitual so the longer the idiots at 3 take to get something good up the more people will of moved on.
      The buggers better not come back to the government on the Bludge again because there losing money.

    • tangled_up 4.2

      No no, people watching Campbell Live are poor and spend little on the advertisers products while the the Road Cops watchers spend a lot. You see CL had too much of a focus on poverty and social issues which the valuable rich viewers were not interested in so it just makes financial sense not to have shows like that.


      • b waghorn 4.2.1

        You have inadvertently struck on something there I bet the more “intellectual” viewers are far less likely to be drawn to part with there hard earned cash by advertising.

        • Sacha

          CL viewers donating huge sums to social causes somewhat buggers that argument, wouldn’t you agree?

          • b waghorn

            Giving to a cause is entirely different to racing of to the latest sale at briscos

        • Tracey

          actually some research shows the “intellectual” are MORE likely to be duped by propaganda, and to spread it than the illiterate.

    The New Zealand team is in Pool A, with the Hosts Canada. It’s a Very interesting pool, with China and Netherlands making up the rest of the pool. New Zealand has done well against both sides, and the spread of rankings is tight. So this will be great pool to keep an eye on. I have high hopes that the Football Ferns will advance to the next round.

    The Football Ferns first game is against the Netherlands in the Commonwealth Stadium Edmonton 06 Jun 2015 – 19:00 Local time. So that will be Sunday, 7 June 2015 at 1:00:00 p.m.

    The follow that up with a game against Canada on the 12th of June at the same Stadium. And luckily for us – the same start time, 1 pm. Expect this game to be fierce, as these sides have a wee bit of history. Also to add a bit of spice, the current coach of Canada Roger Reijners, is the Football Ferns old coach. Plus, the current Ferns coach, Tony Readings, was his assistant. Look for this to be a great game – I’ve order in my cheese toasties in for half time.

    The final game of pool play is against China on the 16th of June our time. I’ll put up another post closer to the time.

    I must say I’ve been looking forward to this, as it’s shaping up to be a great tournament. Great work Canada. Plus the Football Ferns are a real chance to progress to the next round. Which will be awesome!

    Sunday is going to be some serious time in front of the T.V.

    Go the FOOTBALL FERNS!!!!

      Me too… although if you read the Herald or the SST you would never know it was happening.

    “The Notion of the Competitiveness of Countries is Nonsense”

    We like to put it this way: politicians think they are in a global race (and thus feel obliged to slash taxes on capital, weaken labour rights and so on) – but they are labouring under false consciousness. A country can tax mobile corporations and protect workers – and suffer no overall economic penalty for doing so. International co-ordination on these things is useful, for sure, but another way is possible: countries can unilaterally opt out of the race.

    To engage can be to indulge in self-harm.

    Pretty much what I’ve been saying for years now.

    There’s an ad for” the nation”that just turned up on the tv3 news feed its a must watch ,things could get very interesting next week.

      • b waghorn 7.1.1

        Can’t seem to do it from face book but if you Google tv3 you’ll find it . its got the rwnj s frothing in the comments section so here’s hoping its not another ‘big reveal” flop

        • weka

          Lynn was teasing us about it yesterday. The Nation tweeted yesterday too. There’s no informaiton though, other than it’s a thing.

          Daily Review 04/06/2015

          edit, maui and James linking to it being about Slater.

      • maui 7.1.2

        This is as good as I’ve got:

    from Twitter:

    Cate Owen @CateOwen
    So tomorrow @TheNationTV3 is airing an investigation on Whale Oil… #DirtyPolitics #nzpol

    • weka 8.1

      ah ok, this will be Ben Rachinger’s story finally getting aired. And about alleged soliciting of the standard hack. We’ll have to be on our best behaviour.

      • James 8.1.1

        That would be my guess. So nothing new – but a bigger audience.

        Will be interesting if Whaleoil comes out with his evidence in reply (which he says he has and is with the legal folk at the moment).

        • Tracey

          by legal folk does he mean his other personality as part of lauda finem.

    Yawn, I don’t think I’ll join the 10 other viewers, i can’t work it out, is this the right wing media works group running this show, you know the station that all of jk mates work for ( sarc) I assume all you lot are violently boycotting, so I suggest ratings will be very low
