      Nah, just being a kiwi bloke. They’ll be mulling over the necessity for giving him training in how not to call a spade a spade right now.

      “No, look, she deliberately chose not to sack her, dummy, weren’t you paying attention? She carefully maneuvered Clare into the position where it was obvious to Clare that resignation was the correct exit path. Think how sheepdogs get those sheep through the open gate! A kinder, more gentle version of same.”

      “Uh, right. That’s clever. I can see why she’s PM. Why doesn’t someone teach the police commissioner how to do that?”

      • Kat 1.1.1

        And meanwhile on Radio NZ “National” this morning Simon Bridges has his usual mangling of the English language including a Freudian slip moment:

        “If you look at the Meka Whaitiri situation, actually that’s a step up, because what we are talking about there is not actually a backbench member of Parliament’s relationship with the leader of the opposition, it is a minister of the Crown’s and the confidence that the prime minister has in him or her.”

        It appears the leaker is a bankbench member……………. actually.

      • Chris T 1.2.1

        If you consider admitting to making a hash of it a perfect response.

        Does make me wonder who her advisers are and if she actually listens to them

    The Canary has called out the cartoon accompanying the Telegraph bullshit on the post header for being “hideously Islamophobic“.

    Respect to John Banks for visiting Penny Bright in Hospital.

    This is so sad. Why do we all bother struggling through life when it can all end so quickly. What’s the point. Life sucks.

    • Kat 4.1

      Odd man our John Banks and proving once again he really did come up the river on the last cabbage boat. He elected to go through the ignominy of the legal process before he admitted he was his sons father. Now he turns up at Penny Brights hospital bed full of admiration and packing a media camera. Surely he can’t be thinking about running for some public office again.

      • Stunned Mullet 4.1.1

        “Surely he can’t be thinking about running for some public office again.”

        No I very much doubt it, i suspect the visit to Penny was done purely because he thought she’d appreciate it.

        • Wayne 4.1.1.1

          John is very much that kind of guy. He can’t be put into a neat box. An interesting and complex person.

    • Kat 6.2

      You pathetic wee excuse as Trolls.

      Having no prior political baggage that National and its sycophants in the media can attack Jacinda Ardern on, the current “opposition” game plan appears to be first framing her as a “weak leader” and second being subservient to Winston Peters and NZ First in the running of the govt. National and its sycophants in the media clearly have no idea of how a real coalition govt operates including the drones over at Newshub.

      • marty mars 6.2.1

        Exactly Kat. I’m loving the panic from the rwnj’s – they can see the writing on the wall – their lot are useless, bridges is toast and the rest can’t even butter their bread without dribbling. They are so jealous of Jacinda and her life. They are weak little men. Small hands, small minds – your typical gnat supporters – in other words losers.

    • Ed 6.3

      You should spend some time with your friends rather than being a right wing troll on a left wing site.
      Haven’t you anything better to do, troll?

      • James 6.3.1

        Spent time with friends this weekend – fantastic bbq. Ate a wee lamb in your honour.

        • Ed 6.3.1.1

          And now just sit in your room trolling away.
          Which, by the looks of it, you’ve been doing all day.
          Why don’t you just leave this site?
          You’re just a nasty unpleasant troll who seems to take pleasure in annoying and upsetting other people.

        • Hooch 6.3.1.2

          BBQ at Judith’s?

      • solkta 6.3.2

        I guess that’s not as bad as a left wing troll on a left wing site.

        • Ed 6.3.2.1

          Says another right wing troll, who is probably just another pseudonym for James.
          Personally, I’d ban the lot of you.

    It is clear. The National Party sees trade unions and their members the way the Nazis saw the Jews in 1930’s Germany, the way the Ku Klux Klan saw the blacks in Mississippi in the 1960’s and the way Israel sees the Palestinians today.I wouldn’t be surprised if the outlawing of trade unions and collective bargaining is in their manifesto in 2020.

    US senator claims Britain’s MI6 is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria: The Independent 1 day ago

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/syria-chemical-weapons-virginia-senator-richard-black-uk-mi6-assad-russia-a8529681.html

    Crazy thing is, when I clicked on the link, I got sent here: to The Independent’s TV gossip. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/game-of-thrones-season-8-spoilers-leak-lawsuit-jaime-lannister-nikolaj-coster-waldau-a8528761.html#spark_wn=1

    Even though I was using Duckduckgo, I suspect this is a Google installed redirection for censorship.
