    scheduling error? 🙂

    I see Aucklanders have been invited to submit our entries for a new Auckland supercity logo to the Auckland Transition Agency and be in to win a $10,000 prize.

    But just like everything else about the supershitty, the decision on the logo has already been made by Rodney Hide.

    I’ve managed to get a copy.

    “I think she was the most dangerous kind of leader. She was a socialist, she was honest, she was smart.”

    Obama is supporting a policy similar to the one our own Nats put forward. OBAMA BACKS ANOTHER INVASION OF PRIVACY It looks like another attack on civil liberties from the man who just recently extended the patriot act again and it looks more like corporate-progressives such as Obama and conservatives such as National are more similar than some might like to think.

    So, the first thing I noticed about this email is that it may be a scam, then I noticed that it was from Lockwood Smith (except that it isn’t – it’s from Nationals’ PR department) and that the reply also wasn’t to Lockwood Smith but the National Party in general (which I’d assume that their PR department clears).

    More disturbing news from the US: ID Card for Workers Is at Center of Immigration Plan

    Lawmakers working to craft a new comprehensive immigration bill have settled on a way to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants: a national biometric identification card all American workers would eventually be required to obtain.

    Under the potentially controversial plan still taking shape in the Senate, all legal U.S. workers, including citizens and immigrants, would be issued an ID card with embedded information, such as fingerprints, to tie the card to the worker.

    I wonder if Obama will support it.

  7. NZ not AUS 7

    who is the UMR? Where are all these stupid surveys coming from. This one is up there with the rubbish statement that 80% of smokers want to quit.

    Huljich, Brash, credibility? All three words reek of incompatability. What a sad record our Dr Donny has in the real world.
