    “The only people who care are people who don’t vote National” – a National spokesperson to Checkpoint regarding Panama Papers

    Aha…. it’s just a few ‘Rogues’ Key suggests are responsible…. he’s actually telling the truth, not even realizing he’s refering to himself.

    When will Judith make her move?
    National party people are embarrassed and downright sick of Key and his lies.

    • McFlock 3.1

      why do you think he sent her overseas to that conference for at bit?
      Probably hoping she’ll make a taxpayer-funded detour through China 🙂

    Am unhappy about two posts today.
    One the ‘in defense of………he who shall not be named by me until he at least apologises in person to the person he hideously injured, and even then maybe not’; and, two ,’broken’ because I don’t think the standard is broken (even if Chrstchurch is) for women with the likes of r0b, mickey savage, lprent,simon louission, ben clark, bill,
    and dear helen kelly posting on here.
    I love thestandard in a world gone mostly neolib mad, the only things that irritate me about it are rwtrolls without reasoned argument and anything like the defense of an unmentionable which I have not seen happen before.
    Perhaps that indefensible defense (in my opinion) could be whisked away to the ancient archive dungeon, then even ‘broken’ would not seem so bad and I can just ignore it.

    It seems as if Labour, The Greens, NZ First & Peter Dunne wouldn’t object to an end of foreign-trusts. Anyone know where the Maori Party stand? as that would make a 61 vote majority to do something about them.

    “There is no more direct example of how the rich and the powerful really control the levers of finance than these tax havens.”

    Andrew Geddis at his wittiest best:

    Yes, he’s on the TS list but worth an emphasis. Gave me a lot of laughs.
