    I can imagine there will be a few strong coffees downed in that caucus meeting tomorrow………the opposition will be spinning out by the time they get into the house in the afternoon.

    I see Soper has been off running …tripping over himself in his summary of the situation so far.

    Firstly he says the limo costs are just a bookkeeping entry…funny national didnt say anything about bookkeeping when Marks had a few trips to military bases by helicopter.

    And taking a limo around small towns does cost more, as the driver is away from their home base and needs accomodation ( Limos are based in Auckland Wellington Christchurch) and away from those locations contract limos are used ( even in main centres if these is big demand) that all costs $$$$

    ……..unless the Democrats put Hilary Clinton up against him.

    As pundits said at the time, the only two candidates that either could possibly beat.

    • Humma 3.1

      Thanks Jenny, cannot get enough of the schadenfreude.
      I could watch the CNN coverage of election night ad nausea.

    More gloom and doom for National…..


    So how many shibboleths have been knocked down today?

    National is clean. National is honest. National is united.

    Labour can’t manage an economy. Labour is bad for business.

    Truckies have NZ’s future at heart.

    Listening carefully to this shows why Collins will find it very difficult being leader of the nats. She just ain’t got it. Hope she makes leader.

    Did she just say that JLR was going to release some stuff on the Deputy Leader?

    • Fireblade 6.1

      I didn’t hear any mention of the Deputy Leader in Judith’s interview.

      Watching Bridges media statement again, Paula Bennett looks absolutely furious.

      • Incognito 6.1.1

        The False and the Furious.

      • Dirk.Dirkin 6.1.2

        I have never seen her face so motionless

        • gsays

          Until the mention of Mr Curtis’ support, the most stage managed thing I have seen in a while.

          Bridges went through his statement like a long tailed cat walking in a room full of rat traps.
          Managing the situation rather than leading through it.

          BTW I went and looked at Kiwiblog, for a leftie it is worth it for a giggle.
          Some if the people there are despicable, e.g.. the one who said because bridges had said Morena, he must go.

    “This weekend according to IMF Ukraine officially overtook Moldova as Europe’s poorest country. The Ukraine-EU Association Agreement, which entered into force from 1 September 2017 has beggared a modern developed economy and resurrected a fascist movement from Ukraine’s past.”

    George Galloway’s brilliant show this week.
    Worth listening to the University of the airwaves.

    This was a succinct comment made on Bowalley Road. It is the sort of comment that answers a lot of attempts to define what is going on in the USA. This says it in one.

    Andrew Nichols said…

    These populist politicians typically arise in circumstances of socio-political deadlock: reconciling in their own persons the irreconcilable differences of contending social forces – and classes.

    Precisely. Our wretched msm all witter on about how Trump is an aberration when he’s nothing of the sort. Hes the inevitable symptom of a diseased plutocracy, an unmasking of the real USA. Internationally, he strips the faux good manners of previous POTUS incumbents who did all that he is doing, but enjoyed the worship of sycophantic allies like NATO and Australia who were patronised to the max. Trump just tells them like it has always been and now they are exposed as ridiculous and weak as they always have been.

    Bridges is not sincere or genuine when it comes to JLR having been un well, neither is most of the National caucus. JLR is saying that Bridges is the reason for JLR having to take leave.

    What does that say about Bridges?

    Small minded and a misuse of power.
