    Old white man labels NZ’s finances ‘a joke’
    He should know as he helped make them a joke.
    His Rogernomics kicked off a lot of the problems we have today by bringing in the neoliberal economic policies that the National party later took up and built on that increased the gap between rich and poor.

  3. There you guys go again!

    Wrecking my day with pictures of lying corrupt scumbags !!!

    That ‘ thing’ you have on the main picture of your article. I think they call it ‘ Douglas’. But you know what popped into my head as soon as I saw it ???

    And don’t ask me why…

    THIS:

    DEAD SKUNK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD – LOUDON … – YouTube

    • NZJester 3.1

      How dare you make such an unfair comparison.
      A dead skunk in the middle of the road at least still has some value to the natural Ecosystem.
      Apologize to the dead skunks out there! ;-p

      • WILD KATIPO 3.1.1

        Aw shucks, dang it… OK then.

        It was a bad comparison. I guess a skunks olfactory scent glands could produce a fine aftershave or a discerning lady’s parfume ( if produced in an environmentally friendly fashion with zero harm to the skunk ) in comparison to said ‘Douglas’s reeking neo liberal stench , – along with all his erstwhile followers… then and now.

    • WP you are right about Douglas being a skunk, but dreadfully insulting to the skunk community IMHO.

      • WILD KATIPO 3.2.1

        Drat !… you just cant ever win !…

        Ok, ok… I admit it… I made a balls up regarding the skunk analogy, maybe I was a bit too quick off the mark… but you gotta admit… its a funny song…

        Sort of,… but not if you like skunks, of course…

    So tRump probably won’t be the one who lights the nuclear fire.

    Pakistan has shot down two Indian fighter jets inside its airspace, an army spokesperson said, as tensions escalate a day after India bombed targets in Pakistan.

    The development comes as Indian officials said at least three Pakistani combat jets entered the airspace over Indian-administered Kashmir on Wednesday but returned after being intercepted by Indian Air Force planes.

    https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/02/pakistan-shoots-indian-fighter-jets-military-190227055937142.html

    • First punch up between Pakistan and India since 1971, could be another theatre of war to keep the punters interested, we need Gosman to educate us on the problems in the Kashmir.

      Both have got Nukes so could be fun if these guys have a crack at each other.

      25 million killed Indians & Pakistanis so far in conflicts and genocide

    • Sabine 4.2

      you forgot to link to the article from yesterday stating that India bombed ‘terrorists’ inside Pakistan first.

      https://www.rawstory.com/2019/02/indian-government-confirms-air-strikes-militant-camps-inside-pakistan/

      this is just the usual tit for tat re Kashmir, not worthy of nuclear bombs just yet.

      the shortfingered vulgarian still has a chance to be first at something, well make that second, after all he US already has nuked a country, twice.

      • Wayne 4.2.1

        Can’t see this round of the India Pakistan conflict escalating too much.

        Pakistan is making light of it saying they chased the Indian aircraft away which dropped their bombs on empty forest. So hard to justify a real retaliation. But they will do something in Kashmir, presumably through proxy. However they will want low Indian casualties, not 40 as in the last attack. So something more symbolic. If they caused another 40 Indian casualties, India will feel compelled to do more. Such as attack a Pakistan border facility.

        If it gets out of control, it could become quite a bitter border war, though mostly air strikes and artillery bombardment.

        A long, long way from going nuclear. That would require a huge Indian land invasion of Pakistan. Which is not going to happen.

        ADDITION

        Pakistan has just shot down two Indian jets, presumably in Pakistan air space. Which goes to show how well trained and equiped the Pakistan Air force is. With two pilots captured, India is going to have to do a rethink.

        • Exkiwiforces 4.2.1.1

          May I add Wayne, the PAK Air Defence Command actually shot them down on the way home well outside the Tgt zone. From what I see, is that PAF were caught napping at this cheeky little raid by the IAF. The IAF is a lot more we’ll trained than their PAF counterparts as the IAF gets regular invites to Red Flag in the US, the UK and the French Air Exercise’s and last yr they brought over 4 SU- 30’s to the RAAF’s Pitch Black Air Ex. From what I’ve heard the IAF SU30’s proved to be quite a handful for the Red Force Flighters flying out of Tindal and this has also been the case at the other Air Ex’s where the they have been invited too.

          Where as the PAF don’t get many opportunities to do high tempo Air Ex’s like the IAF and the last time I did see the PAF on Ex was on my last trip to MER in UAE with their F16’s.

          Just a note the IAF SU30’s are not your blog standard Russia ones either, as their ones have a mixture of IAI, French and the only Russia stuff is the Airfame, engine and that bloody big artilley piece called a 30mm cannon. The Mirage 2000’s in the IAF, that were used in the bombing are used as a multi role Flighter Bomber and are they are the ones capable of carrying the Indian cans of instant sunshine.

          https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_Su-30MKI
          https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dassault_Mirage_2000

          Where this goes in the bigger picture I’m unsure, but looking back at pass history isn’t good as you have already noted. But a throwing a cans of instant sunshine won’t be one of those options for either side, but more of a MAD option or as the Yanks call it the Hail Mary or the Brits a Forlorn Hope option.

    Disappointing column from that Bryce Edwards – again. Sent him an email questioning his credibility especially since he quotes people like Soper and Hosking.
    I suggested that he should continue in the same vein and quote Whaleoil as well.

    Am I the only one who dislikes his bias?

    • Kat 5.1

      Bryce Edwards is doing what he is told.

    • Yep, a nicely curated round up of right wingers hating on a perfectly fair tax whose time has come.

      Edwards is paid to pretend to be a lefty, so the meeja can claim ‘balance’. If he had any integrity or, y’know, left wing principles, that column would be a set of links to reasons for a CGT. But, nah, middle class is as middle class does.

      Edwards knows what side he’s on. He just won’t say it out loud.

      • James 5.2.1

        Hey @trp you may want to have a look at comments above:

        “all the gooks look the same anyway”

        And

        “James you whinging again like that other faggot Gosman, harden up you poof”

        The standard can get a bit heated at Times – but racism and ‘gay bashing’ type language is too far by a long shot.

        • greywarshark 5.2.1.1

          Those remarks by Tamati Tautuhi about 2.1.

        • Charlie 5.2.1.2

          And your contribution is baiting. So fuck off Jimmy, what do you expect from your continual provocative needling comments dickhead.

          • James 5.2.1.2.1

            Interesting you have issue with me – and yet you are fine with gook, faggot and poof insults.

            Says more about you than anything.

            I’m guessing your in the racist homophobic camp with tamati.

          • Pat 5.2.1.2.2

            baiting it may be…but its baiting with substance

          • Tamati Tautuhi 5.2.1.2.3

            Charlie u are right FOFF Jimmy & Gossamer Boy just fing time wasters IMHO they irritate the F%#k out of me trying to disrupt sensible conversation both are uneducated buffoons or RWNJ’s take your pick.

        • marty mars 5.2.1.3

          I agree with you james – that Tamati Tautuhi scum should be fucken banned. But he’s given himself a Māori name the fucken faker cos I remember when he changed it. Enough fakes and offensive scum here already ffs

    • patricia bremner 5.3

      I have always said Bryce was a Gnat in sheep’s clothing Ianmac.

        He’s a rogernome/blairite/third way bulshitter at heart- thoroughly ensconced in privilege and enjoying the status quo. No class struggle in polute society please

    • Bryce Edwards is a cock, another Fairfax sock puppet.

    Interesting reading about the ties that bind NZ to China in Gordon Campbell’s in depth article in Scoop.
    http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL1902/S00111/gordon-campbell-on-nationals-cosy-relationship-with-china.htm

    Also Jamie Lee Ross has formidable knowledge of National’s dealings in important matters like Chinese support.
    from 2014? –

    Electoral returns out next week [confirm] that a National Party MP received $25,000 from a controversial businessman after Prime Minister John Key had a private dinner with him – at the man’s home.

    The PM has always maintained that he met Donghua Liu at a National Party fundraiser but would never say where. Today, the Weekend Herald can reveal that the fundraiser was actually a private dinner at Mr Liu’s $4.75 million home in Remuera, where a smiling Mr Key and Jami-Lee Ross, the MP for Botany, were photographed alongside Mr Liu and his young family. Afterwards, Mr Liu donated $25,000 that same month to Mr Ross’ election campaign….

    Last year, Ross’ role in the alleged re-packaging of a $100,000 donation to National from Chinese donor Zhang Yikun (to ensure the donation complied with the legal thresholds for such gifts) was the central feature of the controversial taped conversations between Ross and National Party leader Simon Bridges.

    On Huawei:

    Little wonder then, that the Huawei interim decision (a situation created by our membership of one of the oldest of those traditional security alliances) should have caused such concern among the upper echelons of the National Party. Since then, National has publicly campaigned against the Ardern government’s apparent pushback against China’s most innovative digital firm. ,,,

    In reality, New Zealand’s participation (alongside our 5 Eyes security partners) in the interim banning of Huawei technology from the building of our 5G telco networks has not (so far) engendered anything like the retribution that China has taken against our other 5 Eyes partners. For months, China has engaged with Canada and Australia in a tit for tat series of visa revocations, indefinite trade bans and arbitrary arrests, including the imposition by China of a retrospective death sentence on one particularly unlucky Canadian drug dealer. Nothing remotely like those kind of steps have been imposed by China on New Zealand. By comparison, we’ve been given the kid gloves treatment, and New Zealand continues to be treated by China as the friendliest face in the 5 Eyes club.

    Regardless,Bridges has laid much of the blame for the alleged “deterioration” in the China relationship upon Foreign Minister Winston Peters.

    We have been discussing these matters and Campbell’s take on the issues is
    valuable.

    Why should we believe that Venezuela is a virtuous exception to the usual pattern of US interventions in Latin America?
    Um – we shouldn’t

    A frank moment of honesty from one former landlord:

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/02/i-was-a-landlord-and-i-hated-the-person-it-made-me-become.html

    This is what the others are hiding.

    • AB 8.1

      Yep – that’s the dilemma of our times – prey on others and do OK, or choose not to and barely survive.

  9. AB 9

    God Roger Douglas looks old in that picture. You know we don’t live in a purposive universe, when the evil and stupid live to a ripe old age.

  10. greywarshark 10

    Who’s that guy in the image wearing a yellow tie? It suits him.

  11. CHCoff 11

    I wonder if absolute freedom of mainstream media coverage should not be matched by associated broadcast/published freedom of information financial holdings & income of all opinion making orgs. & personalities in different ways, along with regular obligatory reporting whenever via public or private research, various conflicts of interest are found to associated issues.

    Lets remove the free lunch out of the media industry via pay to play in the name of NZ demand & supply.
