    Interesting detail – CEO of now-in-receivership Stonewood Homes is none other than Warwick Isaac who presided over CERA’s awesome cbd rebuild team. http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/business/66003377/Stonewood-hires-heavy-hitting-leaders

    • Robert 1.1

      And who sold them products at hmmm a good price, I wonder? Fletchers another co. Just made a record profit of 51%, I bet they will,are and will be looked after, before the blind voting contractor.

    Beggars belief Joe. But it seems that the Republicans have more democracy than the stacked ballot against Burnie.

    • She'll be right 3.1

      I suspect some in the Democrats want a Clinton Dynasty similar to the Kennedys.

      Sadly though both Hillary and Bill have very little character between them apart from a naked thirst for power.

      I lost respect for Hillary when she decided to not kick Bill for touch for his large number of affairs simply because her desire for power overwhelmed any sense of self respect.

      I am no Democrat supporter by any stretch but I would respect Sanders as a candidate much more than Clinton.

      • Draco T Bastard 3.1.1

        I lost respect for Hillary when she decided to not kick Bill for touch for his large number of affairs simply because her desire for power overwhelmed any sense of self respect.

        Or perhaps her self-respect was large enough to accept him as he is.

    Out of curiosity. Who is the old chap in the photo at the head of this post?
    I find it hard to believe that someone that age can even remember 1986, or anything else for that matter.
    Can anyone identify him?

      Trevor M. I thought I should include the photo to celebrate his decision. And it has been a while since Trevor was acknowledged on TS.

      Looks like you’d be getting senile and starting to lose a few decades for these young upstarts…

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevor_Mallard#Political_life

      Note the date he entered parliament

      • alwyn 4.2.1

        I thought it looked like Mallard but I remembered that he had been in Parliament for less than 30 years. I mentally had done the arithmetic and decided that he must therefore have been first elected in 1987 and couldn’t have been able to vote for it.
        ie I decided it had to be someone else. Hence the question.
        I had forgotten that he lost his seat in 1990 and was out for a term.
        My excuse for that is I was in Australia at the time.

    Blair baffled, cant understand the popularism of new left, that free trade and growing the pie for the last thirty years, coupled with we cant afford it govts and tax cuts favoring already wealthy,might be wearing thin. When they’ve not seen the benefits yet are now told future costs are rising from human pollution, climate, soil, energy switch costs. Keeping the same settings might have worn out its viability, old time hand growth value to wealthy people to keep the now failing juggernault neolibism in place, might just not work anymore. Job insecurity; 63 owning half the world; inheritance and connection coming to the fore as skilled able adaptable people prolifiate meaning weight goes off ability and onto standing in elites and with elites.
