    How about that Nick Smith eh? Twisting and turning, blaming anyone else for his abject incompetence. Thanks a bunch, Nelson voters.

      Yep. I posted it above! Key is struggling with this one …

      Interesting to see the right wanting to skewer Smith. I think he is toast …

      • Colonial Rawshark 3.1.1

        The NAT right wing want Smith gone as he is in the English old provincial conservatives crowd and is not a supporter of the Collins neolib faction

          Agreed. National will happily eat their young if there is political advantage. The last couple of weeks we have seen McCully and Smith both being hung out to dry.

          The motivation is interesting. There seems to be an expectation that individual Ministers can be skewered but National Inc can continue to dominate. There is also clearly some within their caucus willing to sacrifice the common good for individual career gains.

          Bloody righties eh?

          • Colonial Rawshark 3.1.1.1.1

            A corporate power struggle in other words…they see the 1st year of a new term as being a safe time to sort these matters out.

    New twist in the smuggling saga involving Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia :

    Stacks paid to smugglers to send asylum seekers on a ‘suicide mission’

    Too many questions, too few answers!

    Interesting to see where all this will lead to.

    “A major new global financial report finds that investors who remain ignorant of or deny climate science will be big money losers compared to those who are climate-savvy.”

    Ok, but aren’t there always going to be losers because investment is about some people winning and some losing?
