    The best rule of the road we have is "keep left"…………………….

    I don't often give Nick Smith any credit but I'll make an exception today having heard him on radio and seen him on two tv channels.

    Nick Smith has an amazing ability to make himself look an idiot and today he excelled.

    Iranians will shocked! And awed!

    Senior American officials told the Times the preliminary options show how threatening Iran has become. A Pentagon source told Newsweek if anything is likely to happen involving the preliminary Iran options, it would involve a heavy guided missile strike campaign in an attempt to lead Tehran to the negotiation table with Washington.

      Fucker's going to start a war.

      • Macro 3.1.1

        His idiocy knows no bounds.

        When are the repugnants going to get their moral compass back and turf the prick out of office. Unfortunately I can't see two faced Myrtle McTurtle doing anything other than try to protect his own fat arse on the Senate bench.

          Home before Christmas.

          It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months.

          Rumsfeld 7/2/2003

          I think it will go relatively quickly, … (in) weeks rather than months

    I have just watched some TV reporting that disturbs me. The beginning of The Project on Channel 3. A young female was reporting about Jacinda in Paris. She compared the publicity from that compared to publicity gained from staying at home and dealing with difficulty issues like teachers, Kiwibuild, etc..

    At the end, she called those home issues SNAFUS.

    Does she have the right to do that?

    Does she know that cynical troops in World war 2 soon realised that many of their commanders etc were no more competent than bunch of donkeys, and invented the phrase "Situation Normal All Fucked Up"?

    If she is aware, does she understand any of the principles of good journalism?

    • Pat 4.1

      of course she has the right…and depending on her situation she may well be entirely accurate

      • greywarshark 4.1.1

        If she is in a special project, it isn't a kneejerk reaction to summarise all affairs at home as SNAFU. Anybody with an axe to grind could say that, and in her case she had bettter find out how to grind it right before she starts critiquing the PM.

        • Pat 4.1.1.1

          consider GWS…you were unable to afford your rental, you couldnt buy a house, you lived week to week, the worlds was going to hell in a handcart…then after a decade a bunch of new faces appeared on the scene…and none of that changed

          sounds like SNAFU to me

          and questioning the right to express it is disturbing

          • greywarshark 4.1.1.1.1

            But it has changed. There is a year's free fees. Somebody young who hasn't bothered to find out all the forces against Labour today changing things to how they should be in one year, shouldn't be a journalist. Or perhaps she takes the name jour-nalist at face value – only knowing what happened today. We deserve more from those set to report on NZs national and international issues.

            And it is very possible that she is a member of the advantaged class that has always found it easier to go to uni, than the really strapped. Living week to week is how some people have always lived while at uni. Some live like that all the time, not just when they go for years of tertiary learning.

            • Pat 4.1.1.1.1.1

              it is possible shes 'advantaged'…its equally possible she is not, or has close relationships with those who are not….in all honesty GWS, 1st year free fees means sweet fa to the vast majority of people…it will be happily accepted by those that were likely to take up tertiary training anyway but does nothing for the vast majority of NEETs or those in minimum wage jobs…thats not to say I dont think tertiary ed shouldnt be essentially free but it dosnt change life for the many….so SNAFU, and everyone has the right to make their own judgement

    • A 4.2

      I doubt it. She probably isn’t old enough to be well schooled. Why are you still watching TV? Terrible quality and high levels of bias, but worse is the twit factor. Stuff seems to have trouble with basic editing…someone should put them onto Grammerly.

    • BM 4.3

      Jacinda, the show pony needs to decide if she wants to be PM or some virtue signalling crusader.

      People are starting to find her “look at me, look me” shit a bit annoying especially when it's SNAFU central back home.

      • adam 4.3.1

        I thought you'd be use to it BM, we had all those years of Don-Key.

        But the real irony is, that the supporter of the party of shit, complaining about the shit lite party.

        • BM 4.3.1.1

          When it comes to self-promotion Ardern makes Key look like an amateur.

          The big difference between the two though is Key was working for NZ, Ardern is working for Ardern.

          • marty mars 4.3.1.1.1

            lol yeah the big difference is la de da da – wormtongue you are rotten and a scared wee birdy

          • adam 4.3.1.1.2

            If you think Don-Key was working for NZ, can explain the privatisation of health care by stealth, the under funding of schools, the virtual abandonment of the homeless, the reduction of front line police, weak boarder protection and dragging us into stupid wars?

            I could run on for hours, but I'll just say Don-Key was as much a corporate shill as Ardern – and to think other wise is just being a partisan hack. Or a poor sap blindly following "The Ten Rules of Hate"

    • Incognito 4.4

      I’d say it is slightly misplaced and misdirected criticism. First, this Government is not a one-person show so when the PM is otherwise or elsewhere engaged it doesn’t mean all Ministers are sitting tiddling their thumbs and all public servants in the Beehive are sitting idle. Second, it is the media that focus the lens, direct the spotlight, and make everything and everybody else disappear into the dark background and go unnoticed.

    • In Vino 4.5

      I lament the modern tendency to accept the neo-liberal view that it impossible for journalists to be unbiased, so they are therefore entitled to insert their personal opinions at any time, à la Paul Holmes. Bring back Lord Reith, I say.

      That journalist was quite entitled to raise the home issues, but calling them all snafus turns what should have been a factual, reasonably impartial report into a biased, personal opinion-piece.

      Do we want bloody Fox News visited upon us with no argument?

  5. A 5

    I love that picture..

    And news just in: Costco has dropped RoundUp after the cancer court case.

    Imagine a RoundUp free NZ one day. First Costco, then the world 🙂

    Not good but probably using a report given to her – she would't have a clue of it's history, I shouldn't imagine and probably doesn't understand what she's talking about anyway. A bit rich moaning about publicity from a journo – her stock in trade I would have said

  7. Exkiwiforces 7

    Anyone seen this tit bit coming out of the sandpit? Doesn’t look good for someone atm. As I’ve stated many times it time for the GoD to pull the troops out of the sandpit before the Yanks well in truely screw the sandpit up.

    I think the odds for an US strike on Iran now have shortened to almost even money.

    • greywarshark 7.1

      What about impeaching Trump? Has anyone got enough dirt to stick on him and let us Make the Free World Great Again?

      • Macro 7.1.1

        There is more than enough dirt to bury him for good – but the problem is the two faced Mitch McConnell and his cohorts man the Senate. McConnell has absolutely no moral compass whatsoever – his only motivation is to protect his place as majority leader of the Senate. So Impeaching Trump just aint going to happen.

    Michael Laws still stinking the place up – get used to it wanker or piss off (my preferred option).

    Councillors expressed surprise in the public's interest and vitriol in the matter, which councillor Michael Deaker explained was simply a "steady progression over the last 20 years of this council building a relationship with Ngāi Tahu".

    A few days ago, councillor Michael Laws took to social media to label the measure "worse than racist" and "so privileged, and so obviously racist, that it calls into question the fundamental principles of democracy in Otago".

    Utter disgusting pricks – look at the photos of these arseholes – they are the enemy.

    Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by this group of exclusively white, male politicians.

    Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the bill late on Tuesday.

    GWS @7.1, this new update here at The Standard won’t let me reply while using my iPad.

    This Iran dick/ Willy waving by dump is to distract the people from that report, which will also appeal to bible bashing base that he is prepared to what every other POTUS hasn’t done and should’ve done after 1979 Op Eagle Claw cock up etc that old USA has the biggest dick/ Willy and f**k Iran, while putting Russia and China on notice that we still good at Willy waving so watch out.

    While given Bibi a free hand in his part of the sandpit.

    The unknown factor is that Iran, China and Russia do have some sort of alliance, but how deep that goes is unknown and awful big question? The other factor is Nth Korea which has supported Iran in the pass with sanctions busting from either and the Nth backing from Russia and China needs to be look at.

    Worst case scenario is that to dilute US firepower in Iran and divide it would be for Russia, China and possibly Nth Korea to a move somewhere within its own sphere IOT blunt US response to Iran and US support to its allies (Europe, The Sandpit and the Asia Pacific region)as they know from the last decade that the US can’t fight a two front war (Iraq and the Gan). They don’t need to the nuclear/ WMD’s to achieve this objective and let the US pull the trigger on this and there by they can take the high moral ground and say hey the Yankies started all this Willy waving not us.

    No nation as ever manage to succeed in warfare when they are fighting two or more operational fronts or wars at the same time in the history of warfare as they eventually end up losing in the long term in form or another.

    "But what happens when the voluntary measures run out and the warming is not seen to slow because greenhouse gases are so long-lasting? Really addressing climate and biodiversity collapse means rationing carbon. It means no more free ride for extractive industries such as mining, palm oil and forestry companies who profit from environmental destruction. It means heavy penalties for polluters, the axing of food and aviation subsidies, and taking a torch to vested interests. It means addressing the indirect causes of the crisis, such as population growth and consumerism, even rethinking the whole idea of progress and wealth."
