  1. Muttonbird 1

    Dr Bryce is doing some good work of late for his pay-masters, the National Party.

    Can anyone with a Horrid subscription fill us in on what manufactured damage the formerly socially conscious cut-and-paster has done to the Labour and Green parties?


    • ScottGN 1.1

      I’ve long since stopped paying any attention to him. And the good thing is that the vast majority of the public never did to start with.

    • Give him a break @ Muttonbird. He is a convenience (not one you usually find yourself pointing Percy at – although feel free) as a news aggregator.

      But there are far more pressing issues to deal with – like why tonight's +hr… whatver couldn't go to Ear,

      or even whether Hillary darl might be a candidate for the next Mother of the Nation

      It's all thoroughly Gorjiss

      I wrote a list of all the gangsters rounded up by Bryce but lost it. Anyway John Armstrong, Heather du Plessis-Allan, David Farrar, Cooke, and others all hang a noose around Jacinda's neck and all accuse her of failing courage to act on NZF. Spineless they say. Where were they all when Key was carrying out some very dodgy stuff with Whaleoil and others.

    Ah well.

    The Nats can try to engineer a smoke screen around their troubles by accusing other parties of the same thing, but with the Nats the corruption just keeps coming.


    Question is, have National paid back the $200,050 which was earmarked for dodgy Facebook attack ads on their political opponents?

    They have certainly run the ads. That money has no doubt ended up in the pockets of Topham Guerin, and Zuckerberg himself presumably.

    Will they ever pay it back?

    • mickysavage 2.1

      Brings a new twist to the two Chinese are worth more than two Indians …

    • Graeme 2.2

      Will they ever pay it back?

      Oh well,more fund raising then….

      I want to know who bright spark is that thought they could bullshit the SFO by coming up with a backdated sale contract…. In the digital age that gets really hard to pull of because everything is date stamped and has an ongoing communication thread.

      This is going to get really messy

  3. ScottGN 3

    So Newshub failed to get the 6 pm news to air tonight. Who knew they were that skint?

  4. ScottGN 4

    This will be the reason we haven’t heard a peep out of that dumbarse Woodhouse since his initial outburst.
