  1. Heartbleeding Liberal 1

    The capitalists over at Kiwiblog are complaining about how some 17 Fonterra executives are on a $1m+ salary while almost half of all farmers are taking a loss. They love capitalism, just not when it negatively impacts their own interests.

    • tc 1.1

      That’s just the so called management, they’d be mighty peeved if the full list of beneficiaries of the co-ops largesse were known including all the suppliers and consultants in their trough.

    Latest Dirty Politics development… as narrated at DimPost:

    https://dimpost.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/escalation/

    My reaction? Rachel Glucina is in there somewhere.

    The Herald ran the story online but gone now.

    • Anne 2.1

      No prizes for guessing who the vassal blog site… run by a pair of Slater’s lickspittles… is. It’s truly vile stuff.

    • mickysavage 2.2

      I was astounded that the Herald went with the story. There may be come background which may or may not become evident. The whole episode reminded me of this statement:

      “Politics is a dirty, filthy, despicable game, played by dirty, filthy, despicable people. And I love it.”

      There has to be a better way …

      PS in solidarity the website DMC hints at should be dead to us all.

      • Anne 2.2.1

        I find it hard to believe this kind of filthy and slanderous shit (no other word to describe it) is legally allowed to appear in what is, after-all, a ‘public place’.

        • mickysavage 2.2.1.1

          The authors are really sad. They should grow up and get a life and develop some humanity.

    • weka 2.3

      Funny how just yesterday or the day before we were having a conversation about whether the DP crew would attack and abuse people via RL identities.

    • adam 2.4

      And another example of the out and out misogyny of this click. These Tory’s are all women haters – until they can do the minimum, and condemn this vile sexist debased behaviour.

      This is a person with no morals, who needs to spend a whole lot of time looking at nothing but four stone walls.

      How can this man be allowed to be anywhere near a position of power, when he can’t be trusted to act in a civilised manner?

      If he was not white, connected, and had money – he would be locked up for a very long time.

      This is a man who listens to his base desires and embraces them.

      This is morally unacceptable behaviour from Slater. It is repulsive, and quite frankly, the work of the deceiver.

    Given tv3 is now defunct as an impartial news agency (come dine with me- not) and bleeding out prime time viewers anyway wouldn’t be nice to see John Campbell pop up at 6.pm on Prime tv and just carry on regardless of dirty politics and national party media manipulation? Is he not the Simon Walker thorn for this current Muldoon?

    • dukeofurl 3.1

      You should really keep up with the news.

      Prime news is outsourced to TV3 newsroom since the beginning of year

  4. Weepus beard 4

    The movements by the current government after the coroner’s report into the death of Emma-Lita Bourne in the last week, and after the death yesterday of Murray Taylor confirms it as a reactionary government.

    That is, they are incapable of performing any social good whatsoever unless deaths occur, after which they will produce some rushed and rough policy to plaster over the cracks.

    • Hateatea 5.1

      Kua hinga tetahi totara nui i te Wao Nui a Tane, ka nui te pouri mona. No reira, e te Ta, moe mai, okioki mai

      While not unexpected, news of his death is sad. May he be remembered for a long time for his many efforts on behalf of us all.

    • Ovid 5.2

      He did a lot of good work for penal reform in this country and voices like his that moderate the national conversation are few and far between.

    • Colonial Rawshark 5.3

      He will be missed.

  5. Clemgeopin 6

    TV 3 ratings are here:

    Predictable collapse in TV3 numbers

    Following in the path of the Dilbert cartoon we have
