    I hope Winston ferrets out the person/people/party involved with leaking his private information.

    Just a bit of teething problems for our new coalition goverment this is expected . There is no way I’m letting anyone near my DNA or my Whano DNA this is going to be a tool for the insurance industry to fleece US .
    How well they will say no life insurance for you because you have this genetic defect in your family . Thats one reason why one buys life insurance to cover the unknown . Anyway I know my whakapapa Kapai

    The wonderful Abby Martin – New show – Decentralised Disaster relief. People in action for people. 26 min. Good example of direct action, and getting organised.

    Powerful, privileged and evil AF. Nauseating.

    In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women. He began to hire private security agencies to collect information on the women and the journalists trying to expose the allegations. According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world’s largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies. Black Cube, which has branches in Tel Aviv, London, and Paris, offers its clients the skills of operatives “highly experienced and trained in Israel’s elite military and governmental intelligence units,” according to its literature.

    Two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met with the actress Rose McGowan, who eventually publicly accused Weinstein of rape, to extract information from her. One of the investigators pretended to be a women’s-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with McGowan. The same operative, using a different false identity and implying that she had an allegation against Weinstein, met twice with a journalist to find out which women were talking to the press. In other cases, journalists directed by Weinstein or the private investigators interviewed women and reported back the details.

    I thought that “lefties” would be all over the deputy PM serving papers on the media to get them to reveal sources???

      Just heard the news myself James, thanks for the link.

      Edit… good link James, so because they were not ‘ministers’ at the time it went down, they can’t use tax payers money to defend themselves and will have to use their own funds or party funds. And he’s going after a couple of Journo’s as well. No doubt it will be all over the news in morning. That’s going to hurt the national party,

      Meanwhile Winston flies out to APEC

    Today’s tactic by Bridges and National demonstrates a sharp shift in recent New Zealand politics and suggests the influence of US/Australian advisors bringing the Newt Gingrich/Liberal party style to government.

    I think we need to make the point that this atomic warfare level of politics has no place here.

    • Carolyn_nth 7.1

      Mallard, in his acceptance speech for the speaker role, following the Nats duplicitous game playing, said he would be working towards a better kind of politics in the House.
