  1. dv 1

    So there will be NO front office effects from the IRD restructure?
    (I have had a question in since last week, no reply)

  2. AsleepWhileWalking 2

    Found this gem via the #iammetiria twitter feed.

    “…I’ve suffered hot oil burns to my arms and had to keep going without medical attention. But Bill English only talks to employers and never to workers so he has no idea of the health hazards and issues we face in our workplaces every day.”


    “So, let me boil this down for you: I’ve got more chance of being forced to piss in a cup for a drug test than to be given adequate bathroom and meal breaks as a hospitality employee. What does that tell you?”

    • BM 2.1

      Moan, moan, moan, god damn Millenial candy arses they’re weaker than old women’s wees.

      [With reference to the bit in the policy about tone or language that has the effect of excluding others, and in the spirit of making TS a more pleasant place for a whole swathe of people to be, off you fuck for a week – weka]

      • tc 2.1.1

        Not bothering with a subtle touch up first eh, is that the new directive ?

        • McFlock

          maybe saw some internal polling on response to the labgrn releases of the last few days and is a bit grumpy

      • mac1 2.1.2

        Jeez, BM, some people take the piss, and some drink it?

        Btw, goddamn is one word and millennial is spelt with two “n’s”, but apart from that, and your agist misogyny, and general lack of the imparting of logic and meaningful discourse, a good comment.

      • gsays 2.1.3

        Thanks weka.
        Helps the grown ups have conversations.

    • Bill 2.2

      Yup. “Gem” of piece about sizes it up.

      I can almost appreciate why BM would have thrown a spanner in there to get everyone talking….about BM and BM’s comments.

      Well worth the five minutes or so of reading time.

    Online 4pm Herald. Trying to deflect from Labour fiscal policy?

    What the! Audrey fronts another online poll focussed on National plus NZF.
    Notice that Bill English to run Govt 22% + others.
    Andrew to run Govt 18% + with others. Audrey didn’t mention that.
    With Andrew 41% unsure. So room to persuade the people in spite of Audrey.


    • Carolyn_nth 3.1

      Well, this morning Young was saying it is anybody’s election. Looks like some rightees starting to freak out – grabbing at any passing, or hurriedly thrown together poll to try to reassure themselves, or find some salvation.

    • weka 3.2

      The bit I liked was how the biggest group of people (34% compared to the next biggest group 24%) were saying they didn’t know. Which is probably the people sitting there thinking they don’t want National in govt at all. But of course headline the 24%/Peters group 🙄

    • ScottGN 3.3

      TVNZ used this poll too, to claim that English had “soared” above his rivals in the preferred PM stakes. Colours getting nailed to various masts now I guess.

  4. Muttonbird 5

    Well done weka. BM is a germ in my opinion. I’ll always remember him accusing me of domestic abuse. Cyber scum.

    • tc 5.1

      All part of that well funded DP machine, he’ll be back with nuanced memes in a week to stay on TS and divert, derail, diffuse.

    • Red 5.2

      BK comment was…. well not articulated but the article was a pretty pathetic moan, attitude shift would do more for this snow flake than trying to make out she is some form of victim working at the front line of catering, what would generations before this petal think re her so called work trials and tribulations

  5. There is a lot to this 6

    I’m loving how whale oil thinks he is being subtle when he is clearly going all in for whoever him and Lusk are being paid by, this battle runs deep Key putting Judith on the backbench means she and blubber boy were able to cultivate quite a crew down south with Sarah Dowie and Todd, now they have lost Todd they are trying to replace with another Collins/Lusk/Slater disciple, and at war with the establishment side of the national party that loathe their very existence.
