Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Massive own goal for the trans rights activists (the thugs who abused and intimated women on Saturday in Albert Park and the rest who celebrated it.
I have it on very good authority that Speak Up for Women have been flooded with women who want to join the group,
Intimating women is a dreadful thing to do!
Imitating women is one thing, insisting to others that you are a women and demanding special treatment because of this is another thing
I'm intamating woman if it's consensual of course!!
Pun of the week B.
Phew I thought I was going to get so told off for that one 😅
Hoping that SUFW gets some feedback from IPCA on the complaint they have lodged against the lack of policing there.
I think if we all have to hire our own police force if we want to appear in public it would have been nice to have got some warning. Our police forces will have to have powers of arrest for breaches of the peace. I wonder if we could use the Police Training College to train our own police forces.
Yip this guy nails the whole ridiculous affair
Strike 3 your out, !!!
Well, it's historical (2020) – so could be considered the first, rather than the 3rd strike.
But, seems to be outlining a pattern of behaviour that regards the cabinet manual as an optional extra, if he should feel so inclined to abide by it.
I don't necessarily think this is a firing offense on it's own – but Hipkins has to be wondering just how much leaking he's routinely doing, and just how trustworthy he is.
More to the point, is there more to come? Hipkins asked for assurances last time (and received them) that there was nothing further waiting in the wings. If Nash just 'forgot' about this one, how many other issues has he forgotten about?
And, it's another distraction that Hipkins doesn't need. He, surely, wants the Labour team on message (you could just see his frustration today, when every question was about Davidson's remarkably stupid response to a hostile questioner)
Mate of mine knows his bro, his bro reckons he belongs in national, it's starting to look like he's onto it.
The PMs' real test will come when he attempts to water down 3 waters – excuse the pun.
And he's gone
Hipkins; “Absolutely inexcusable”
On ya chippie !
It's corruption, you can't get away from that.
I like Stuart, but you just can't tolerate, betraying your colleagues and the public.
Looks like Nash is in hot water again. On TV1 news tonight. Apparently, it relates to an email he sent that disclosed private cabinet information a couple of years ago. Sounds like Hipkins will be giving a presser this evening. Be interesting to see if Nash survives.
My money is on the Tui ad – "Yeah….nah"
Article on Stuff now.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Nash gets the boot. He was on his final warning, and if Hipkins lets this slide he starts to look weak.
And it is starting to look like Nash has a history of being a loose cannon.
Back bench boy now,!!
Fucking dick Nash is dumped but crashes Prime Minister Hipkins' momentum.
Hipkins has worked damn hard to right the ship that Ardern was crashing, chucking weak policies for basic cash redistribution and doing well at it.
Hopefully it gives some coverage for Marama in Parliament, though there's a risk of blood in the water attracting sharks.
2 months out from budget and the effective start of election campaign, this is the stupidest dumbest most ignorant piece pf lying wideboy bullshit I've seen from a cabinet minister since probably Shipley's year of total dumbassery over 20 years ago.
"Don’t preach love, tolerance and respect, then brazenly do the opposite. It’s not a one-way street. Dignity and self-control, whatever the circumstances, matters."
Sounds like the anti-vaxx mob on Parliament's grounds, doesn't it.
What a tangled web we weave!
This interview speaks directly to the question of violence and why so many people, of both sexes, find it such an unregulated and threatening aspect of life.
For weird confessions, I did competitive wrestling at High School, and loved it.
Now my Other Half still makes unitard and 'oiled GrecoRomano man love' jokes but she rowed for Cambridge Uni for several years and it's still her go-to heroic storytelling well-of-cockiness. Well earned sure but cocky.
Embodied identity is often solidified over years with hard contact sport, including a bit of injury to reckon with your limits.
I will confess that due to my brother's disabilities and the complete absence of extended family I missed out on a fair bit of this kind of play within my childhood home. But not completely either – we were mad for bullrush at school and especially Scouting.
I played junior soccer for a club that relegated the useless oafs like me to a team that never won a game for five seasons running. In hindsight that was a mistake – modern club coaches would have broken us up and let us experience at least a few wins to keep the motivation going. As a result I was turned off team sports altogether and headed toward more solitary challenges like tramping, cycle touring and eventually rock and alpine climbing. Not to a remarkable level, but quite enough to have plenty of near miss stories.
But that was only ever a partial replacement for the early childhood experiences Rafe Kelly is exploring here. In particular it is the failure of children to learn how to calibrate physicality which leads to people who are either fearful of aggression and thus become pushovers all their lives – or they cannot regulate themselves in the face of provocation and misuse aggression to bully others or worse.
Edwin Gale's book The Species That Changed Itself (Penguin, 2020) has a couple of chapters on how prosperity led to a kind of developmental disembodiment, which is getting to such a high pitch that it is altering our phenotype.
Not saying the life-journey of embodied risk is a lost cause, but it's certainly on its decline here.
Will check that out – thanks.
A twitter feed for people who wish to make confessions.
"Marama Davidson should not have to apologise or “backtrack” on her values, Te Pāti Māori co-leaders Debbie Ngarewa-Packer and Rawiri Waititi say, as the minister responsible for sexual and family violence faces mounting pressure from the political right over her comments about white men and violence."
Things that make you go, hmmmmmm….
Endorsements like that from Marama's ultra-pc base won't win any new votes.
Greens want better than 7% they need to stop playing defence with dumb shit.
She wasn't trying to win votes with her comments, she was supporting a marginalised/oppressed minority, imo.
What she said (I know who causes violence in the world, it is white cis men.) was racist, sexist and factually incorrect. What could possibly go wrong?
No she wasn't she was acting like head teen brat of a possie of confused week minded fools.
I don't know Ad, are labour, national, and act going to keep funding Te Puna Aonui?
TPM want to expand its scope. Greens as well, not 100% there. So some clarity on that would be nice.
That said, Marama needs to accept the own goal. And keep her mouth shut in front of cameras, when she is amoungst the mob in the future.
Unbelievable. The left is imploding its own support just after Hipkins had managed to get Labour's back onside with a lot of middle voters. Hugely unhelpful contribution from TPM, and I won't be surprised if this is the turning point which results in Luxon being PM by the end of the year. Ugh. We have nobody to blame but ourselves.
the fact that she hasn’t done so,diminishes any credibility she had
