      Is that Tame Iti doing an imitation of a tiki,. with his head at an angle?

      Incidentally this is a link to Tame Iti’s 2015 Tedtalk from Auckland for those like me who hadn’t hear or seen it.

    Congratulations America, three weeks to wind the clock back fifty years. Well done you!.

    Mr. Trump’s appointment of Bannon, Flynn and Sessions are the first steps in the project of taking America back.https://t.co/Yn2gJ8LtUf— David Duke (@DrDavidDuke) November 18, 2016

    The least (perceived) corrupt country in the world is just a tax haven for the dodgiest mega-rich in the world who want to hide their laundered money from the law and the taxman. And who profits? Only the few who are in the trust industry. To say that the government is dragging its feet in tightening the legislation to make it less dodgy, is an understatement.

      I wonder if johhny made-offs (key) sudden and unexpected resignation has something to do with his setting NZ up as a tax haven ……

      Its hard to know with such a sleazy man ……

      National will be pretending to fix this legalized corruption …. while leaving it functioning.

      It’s part of his legacy which is rotten and needs to cut out and removed ….

      And the same goes for the support NZ is giving to neo-nazis in Ukraine …..

      Johnny made-offs gone …….. now his rot needs to go with him

      • TootingPopularFront 4.1.1

        I heard that his departure was due to something a little more prosaic than profiteering from his privileged position – his wife found out about an affair he was having with a pubic servant in Wellington, and gave him the ultimatum of family or the job, he took the family option

          Mate there’s laws about defamation. I’m sure the mods will be along soon.

        • Psycho Milt

          The typo “pubic” for “public” seems apt in this case. But yeah, totally dodgy defamation you’ve plastered onto The Standard, there.

          • TootingPopularFront

            No names mentioned, apologies to the mods, please feel free to remove, happy to accept a ban if that is the punishment, no more alternative facts from me

            • Carolyn_nth

              You referred to a very prominent person, with a claim as if a statement of fact, that cannot be substantiated by evidence in the public domain. That is the problem.

    • Carolyn_nth 5.1

      I nearly spat my tea over my keyboard, at the bit where they said Trump accused someone of blasphemy.

      The Scottish lass commented,

      “Is that because he’s legally God?”

      Luv it!

    A chunk of sea ice — equal to the size of India — has vanished from Antarctica because of the record heat.


    Start having a plant based diet and be part of the solution.

    The problem at Fukishima has not gone away.
