    If only he would keep his hand there.

    Sure, as soon as someone whacks a didgeridoo up your dumb dumb arse, numbnuts.

    • joe90 2.1

      RWNJs have a thing about wishing violence against young women.

      • The Al1en 2.1.1

        Damn them pretty young communists.

      • infused 2.1.2

        Might want to wait for the outcome of the labour camp sex scandal before trotting out those lines.

        • joe90

           Labour hasn't appointed the alleged offender to chair a select committee while they await the outcome of any inquires.

          So why would I wait?

          • infused

            maybe, but they have left that person in parliament for months now, with people frightened to work with them. I guess that's ok with you though, cause national bad.

            • joe90

              Perhaps that person has employment legislation on their side and despite Pullya's protestations and your fervid imagination, there's nothing to warrant their removal.

              And it's way past National is bad. I fucking detest National because of what they did to my friends, family and  community. Oh, and because they saddled us with the idiot Hipango.

              But I guess the alleged conduct of a prominent New Zealander is okay with you, cause national not bad.

    • Red Blooded One 2.2

      I'm guessing it'll be his good mate Folau doing the shoving. He seems fixated with other peoples Didgeridoos. Alan Jones seems a special kind of nasty. Aussie Hosking.

    • Cinny 2.3

      LMAO re the didgeridoo Al1en

      Did a bit of a google on old alan jones….78 years old huh…. at a guess he's probably more pissed off that a woman is running a country than he is about climate change ruining his lifestyle.

      Turns out he stood for parliament a couple of times and lost each time.   As well he was turned down during pre selection the other times he tried to run.

      He's been done for defamation numerous times.

      Geez I think he might be a bit bitter and jealous. Just maybe… lolololzzzz

    • Gabby 2.4

      Alan Jones is a fuckknuckle. 

    • Muttonbird 2.5

      The right wing seems under enormous stress at the moment. They are losing it big time with this abuse from commentators such as Jones, and their militant wing is shooting up Christchurch and El Paso.

  3. this for anyone wondering what all the fuss was about james brown – this could help..

    (i saw him @ the apollo in harlem in new york..it was a blinder of a show – in the top five of concerts seen..)

    • and if you liked that..?

      check out the audience reactions – and a young paul schaeffer on the keyboards..

      • joe90 3.1.1

        The man could cut a rug.

        • phillip ure

          that's a great clip – he is so young..!

          • David Mac

            Yep, James is sensational. If I had to pick an unlikely duet partner for him it would be Pavarotti. I started watching this clip thinking it was going to be a train wreck, how very wrong I was. Love the onstage respect between them….61 million views! Ha, you've probably seen it.

    NZ's largest gecko,

    There was a time when royals would take themselves off to monasteries to avoid the chop.

  6. Ad 6

    Eugenie Sage at Forest and Bird Waitakere tonight is passionate and delivering on all fronts.

    Not too much jargon. Lots of directed cash.

    Love ya work Minister.

    "No hatred, fuck racists, blank faces, time’s changin, one nation, unification, the vibration, unfuck the world!"

    Prophets of Rage – Unfuck The World (Official Music Video)

    Prophets of Rage was formed by members of Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.

    Obviously he strangled himself to death before hanging himself. Simple really.


    • Peter 8.1

      Does this mean that Bill Clinton strangled him then hanged him or what? 

      Since we're talking possibilities is a hyoid fracture possible in a hanging?

      Is it possible that because fake suicides have been uncovered as murder in cases involving hyoid fracture, focus on the possibility of murder in this case rather than other equally or more tenable possibilities is politically preferable?

        • francesca

          Ah but was his hyoid bone broken?

          from Wikipedia

          ". Forensic experts may often be able to tell if hanging is suicide or homicide, as each leaves a distinctive ligature mark. One of the hints they use is the hyoid bone. If broken, it often means the person has been murdered by manual choking."

          Oh Jeez, that'll bring out the conspiracy theorists!!…sarc

          Jail suicides by hanging don't involve a long drop , or even a short drop.Unless someone has conveniently hung a hook from the ceiling, there's a bunk,and the suicide is 4 ft tall

          Breakage of neck bones involve heavy trauma to the neck, and are present where there has been a considerable drop, even then many judicial executions by hanging have occurred without neck breakage.

    • Sacha 9.1

      He wishes.

    • greywarshark 9.2

      Give us a hint Muttonbird.   I don't listen to all the talking heads or follow them on television.   Who are these people and why are they important?

      I did hear Alan Jones this morning on RNZ.   What a cock!   Is he one of the above?

    • Muttonbird 9.3

      Top: Complete waste of space and oxygen thief Australian, Alan Jones.

      Bottom: Evil-to-the-core Senator Palpatine/Darth Sidious from the Star Wars franchise.

      More than a passing resemblance and can't separate them on malignant bitterness either!

  9. Muttonbird 10

    RNZ asks: Is Islamophobia still thriving in NZ?


    A quick glance at Kiwiblog confirms it is.

    • Fireblade 10.1

      Almost every type of phobia is rampant on Kiwiblog and YSB. They're ignorant people who are afraid of things they don't understand. Irrational fear can make unstable people dangerous though. That's why the Police and GCSB should be monitoring those sites and the people associated with them.

    Another month and he'll be plunging like the Dow.
