    • Tracey 1.1

      I heard last week that he said the meeting had nothing to do with programming…

      It reminded me of when a Chairman of a British Football expresses total confidence in the Manager —- a week later theManager is sacked/resigned

    • Clemgeopin 1.2

      What a disgrace! The man should resign immediately or be sacked.

    Anyone else see parallels between Craig trotting out his wife and holding a press conference and breaching confidentiality at the expense of his victim and roger sutton trotting out his wife and holding a press conference and breaching confidentiality at the expense of a victim?

    Anyone been threatened to have been sued by Colin Craig lately?

    • Tracey 3.1

      what is it with white monied men thinking that confidentiality in settlements doesn’t apply to them

      • Rodel 3.1.1

        Thanks Colin. Ahha…another plate of schadenfreude.After Don and Roger I was on a bit of a schadenfreudiet. What is it with rich white men?
        Enough blood for the fiscal brain only. Who’s next I wonder?

    • Skinny 3.2

      No Colin is leaving that domain up to Collins today!

    Cactus kate has blogged at that blog for the first time in yonks. I wonder how that attempt to get the National Library to delete copies of her website is going?

    • tc 4.1

      Gosh sooo many players I had forgotten about that ones attempt at virtual redaction.

      Where is this vastly expensive legal process invloving a prominent nzilder at ?

      Just a couple of legacy issues being swept aside by the next round of ineptitude with akl housing, sheepgate etc.

    • Alpha.Z 4.2

      {Cactus kate has blogged at that blog for the first time in yonks}

      wish to read it. link please?

    John Oliver nails it in respect of online harassment of women and revenge porn in particular. Particularly appropriate given the recent victimisation of a New Zealander in this way.

  5. Anne 6

    Dearie, dearie me… John’s flag diversion isn’t working:

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/69615950/new-zealand-flag-meetings-held-in-auckland

    • Clemgeopin 6.1

      What a joke! Auckland has about 1.4 million people and guess how many people attending this expensive meeting?

      14. Yes, 14! I kid you not!
      That is just 1 person for every 100,000 people of Auckland attended this gravy train sham!

      I believe some food was provided too for the expected crowd!
      I suspect half of those 14 attending were probably the poor hungry and homeless of Auckland looking for some food!

      May be we need a flag depicting the poor homeless of Auckland lining up in a soup kitchen holding pictures of a smiling Key.

    • Draco T Bastard 6.2

      As of Monday morning more than 4000 flag designs had been submitted.

      I’ll assume that means about 3996 dic-pic equivalents.

      Panel chairman John Burrows addressed concerns about cost, saying democracy comes at a price.

      The only thing that this has to do with democracy is that it’s Nationals’ attempt at hiding tat they’re busy undermining democracy as fast as possible.

      • Clemgeopin 6.2.1

        Yes, it is. More than ‘National’, I think it is Key’s personal trick to keep the people distracted from political issues with a contentious flag change issue, rather than as a need to meet a genuine desire or demand of people to change the flag. There was none!

    • weka 6.3

      I don’t know if this has been discussed, but given how many people hate JK and this govt what’s going to happen if we end up changing the flag? For many people it will be associated with Key and all that that represents.

      • adam 6.3.1

        Nah, Key will barely be a footnote in history.

        Who remembers William Fox?

        • weka 6.3.1.1

          I was thinking more over the next few years as people get used to the flag. For some the flag is meaningless, but myself I think it’s important in terms of our sense of ourselves as a country.

    For other late night owls. I just found this quote from LBJ. I think it’s quite remarkable and is still on the the ball.

    LBJ 1971

    “When I took over the presidency, Jack Kennedy had left me a stock market of 711. When I left the White House, it was over 900. Now look at it. That’s what happens when the Republicans take over—not only Nixon, but any of them. They simply don’t know how to manage the economy. They’re so busy operating the trickle-down theory, giving the richest corporations the biggest break, that the whole thing goes to hell in a handbasket.”

    • Ovid 7.1

      And another thing…the crotch, down where your nuts hang, is always a little too tight, so when you make them up, please give me another inch I can let out there, uh, because they cut me. It’s just like riding a wire fence. These are almost, these are the best I’ve had anywhere in the United States.

      But when I gain a little weight, they cut me under there. So, leave me, you never do have much margin there. See if you can’t leave me an inch from where the zipper (BURPS) ends, round, under my back to bunghole, so I can let it out there if I need it.

      Lyndon Johnson orders pants.

      • Charles 7.1.1

        extra, extra, read all about it..!

        “Man with comfy pants hits Republican nail on head.”
