    Television at its best, watching that blubbering ,floundering petulant 7 year old fucktard Jordan Williams getting done over by Bomber and the Craig defence team.
    Oh , happy days are here again.
    I hope Crazy Colin cleans him out in a damages case.
    And Williams has finally “taken one for the team”. Hah fucking hah.

      Came in on the item halfway through… talk about a meltdown! Can’t be sure but gather from what I saw it might have had something to do with this?

    • Chuck 1.3

      With “Bombers” abysmal track record, he has just given the kiss of death to Colin Craig’s chances of winning this case!

      • Paul 1.3.1

        You are someone who defends a government that allows this……

      • Gangnam Style 1.3.2

        Bombers abysmal track record with what? Running Corrections or being in charge of NZ during this shite housing crisis? Did he promise some bridges up north? Or in charge of MPI? Or did he send 100s of pregnant sheep to their deaths in Saudi Arabia?

        Abysmal
        “extremely bad; appalling.
        “the quality of her work is abysmal”
        synonyms: very bad, dreadful, awful, terrible, frightful, atrocious, disgraceful, deplorable, shameful, woeful, hopeless, lamentable, laughable, substandard, poor, inadequate, inferior, unsatisfactory;

      • Bearded Git 1.3.3

        @Chuck-you really think Williams is going to win this? Deluded mate.

        His case is falling apart.

    • Cinny 1.4

      By crikey… Williams is emotional.. dang. Can’t reveal the details of a woman he was seeing as a means to gain him a political advantage, using her for info. The same situation and woman (?) is involved in another case. What is the other case?

      He’s like a little kid that has been snapped out painting a larger story than the reality.

      Then along comes Bomber… looking sharp and composed and he drops a nice little ‘bomb’ kudos for telling it like it is.. he handled Williams lawyers questions most excellently.

      “Mr Craig invited Mr Bradbury to court to criticise the tactics of Mr Williams and bloggers like Cameron Slater.

      “I think that Mr Williams and his friends are political sadists who are a cancer on the body politic of this country,” Mr Bradbury says.”

      Nice little clip on this link..

        A woman scorned can be pretty vengeful? Manipulative?
        And an opportunist with a political axe to grind for a certain blogger is in for the kill – but maybe it backfires. Hope so.

      And some in the Labour Party still cannot see why they should apologise to workers for the actions of the 4th Labour Govt.
      They slid open the bolt on the door and the Nats in the 1990’s couldn’t believe their luck and threw the door wide open. It has never been closed, and the laws are even looser still. Labour had 9 successive years to do something to readdress the damage at the beginning of this Century, but never did. Our Labour Laws now resemble the conditions of the 1890’s. 80 years of struggle by the Labour movement thrown away at the stroke of a pen in the 1980’s.
      And they wonder why they are not more popular.
      Union bashing is now a popular pass time of the elite and with small memberships the Unions that struggle to exist today face a repeat of the struggle their predecessors had in the early 20th C.

        BINGO!

        They need to wake up and start rebuilding that which we’ve lost.

      • Peter 4.1.2

        That’ s why I no longer vote Labour and will not until they do something about the labour laws and I don’t mean just tinker.

    • Anne 5.1

      Thanks for that Stuart Munro. It’s true. Spies, especially those who have been in the game a long time, can be brutally blunt in their assessments. They’be been around and know what goes on behind the scenes. His analysis is compelling.

      If only… Bernie Sanders.

    • That’s more to do with the fact that solar reduces costs most during times we already generate plenty of renewable energy, and that PVs are being imported from China, which is a silly idea given the carbon emissions of transport as you say.

      If we produced them locally they’d probably do better, but the main benefits of microgeneration is in reducing reliance on grid prices. (which is where the unfair “solar tax” comes in, as it’s not accurately costing the portion of the bill that actually relates to lines. I have no problem with power companies splitting lines fees and electricity usage fees, if it’s not an excuse to penalise microgeneration or to raise overall prices, but that’s clearly not what’s happening)

      That said, as electrification progresses and PV technology improves, even the importing-from-china equation will trend towards very little carbon footprint to installing solar panels.

    • ianmac 6.2

      The anti solars say this:
      “By failing to save local CO2 and instead creating CO2 in manufacture and transport, supporting solar in New Zealand actually increases both global and domestic emissions. ”
      But those costs are a one -off in the manufacturing and transport. For the next 25years + the costs are minimal!
      Roll on cheaper battery storage.
