    Higher standards Key wanted to have over his ministers than Labours term has become two words John Key must have nightmares over.

    Higher Standards, John.

    Internet chat suggests that a number of the KIA/injured in the Orlando shooting will be from police firearms.

    What’s the odds that this will be dragged out till closer to election time?

    • indiana 3.1

      If he loses, would he consider resigning?

    • Colonial Viper 3.2

      Wow, Hagaman actually decided to waste real time and real money on this. Interesting move.

      • b waghorn 3.2.1

        He’s probably got way more than he needs , and if he causes damage to Little and labour I’m sure he’ll be rewarded , nudge nudge wink wink.( I am in no way suggesting the hagamans are filthy bribing crooks)

      • Graeme 3.2.2

        Odd how this sort of pops out whenever the Nats are taking it? Just coincidence?

      • M. Gray 3.2.3

        Funny how wealthy people in NZ always run to the courts to me this highlights our two tier legal system same with our education system one for the poor and one for the rich. Very sad and not what my ancestor went to war for.

      Link now up on youtube:

    • Anne 4.2

      That was well worth a watch. I hope someone puts it up here when it becomes available. The most interesting info to come out of it was:

      Paula Bennett’s ‘office’ has a culture of leaking and, according to Phil Twyford, it happens on a regular basis. Press Gallery journos are the usual recipients. This being the case, then it is easy to see why the staffer concerned thought it was okay to contact a TVNZ journo and spill the beans. From her perspective she was doing nothing out of the ordinary. This time however the staffer was caught out.

      You have to wonder if this ‘culture of leaking’ was the reason Bennett’s previous press secretary resigned.

    The reason the Orlander mass shooter committed his crime

    • weka 6.1

      Interesting. Are the HNZ houses where there is concern just where people have smoked, or are they more concerned about labs?

  6. Colonial Viper 7

    Orlando shooter – drug abuser, mentally ill, taught from an early age to hate himself and to hate others. Who was a regular at the club where he eventually committed his crime, and who would get very drunk at the club and complain about his family. But in his outside life was completely in the closet, fighting his own demons until he couldn’t any more.

    • Bill 7.1

      What the fuck’s with the ‘mental illness’ line? Did he have a diagnosis? Or are people just a wee bit frightened that the guy wasn’t really very different to themselves?

      • mauī 7.1.1

        The ex-wife says he had bi-polar and if she is telling truth in her story then he had issues with control and violence which could easily put someone somewhere on the mental illness spectrum. I think this is where the “mental illness” line has come from, but that line is also a way for society/the media to explain the reason for something so horrific.

        • Draco T Bastard

          I think this is where the “mental illness” line has come from, but that line is also a way for society/the media to explain the reason for something so horrific.

          It’s also a way for society as a whole to avoid having top take any responsibility for his actions.

          He was mentally ill and thus it in no way had anything to do with the fact that society taught him to hate gays.


          • Colonial Viper

            The people in the video noted how hard it was for some people to seek help for mental health disorders in the USA.

            • McFlock

              geez, between mental healthcare accessibility and cultural acceptance of homosexuality, you’re almost getting the hang of identity politics. almost.
