    Interesting report on the scuttlebutt wires today that the MSD report suggesting a carve up conservation land had a DOC logo on it. Trying to justify the unjustifiable, perhaps.?
    Also interesting that Tourism NZ has been completely quiet on this suggested destruction of one of their finest assets.

    The right has since time immemorial (often justifiably) labelled the left with the epithet “Loony Left”. Donnys latest little silliness leaves me stuck for a similar epithet, any suggestions?

    Nutty Neolibs?
    Raving Reactionaries?
    Execrable Extreme Right?

    I go for rancid – smelling or tasting like rank stale fat, stinking.

    Listening to Dr Brash (hey dr, I’ve got an ingrown toenail) try and explain the unexplainable I came to the same conclusion I came to in the 90’s when the BRT was slicingf and dicing the economy.
    All the proposals he is putting up are just elaborate smokescreens to disguise the appropriation of state assets into private hands.
    Brash and his cronies are incorrigible. They call themselves businessmen but they have never made a business. They are just accountants working schemes of dubious legality to enrich themselves.
    cloaking their actions in their ideological mumbo jumbo will never disguise the fact that they are just white collar thieves.

      I’m not even sure if they’re accountants but their schemes are all dubious and tend to channel all the wealth to themselves and their owners/mates.
