      The glaciers are still melting.

      (So predictable…)

      “How’s that Global Warming thing going?”

      A lot better than your flat earth theory, Andrei. Crikey, it must be hard to type with a finger in each ear and a blindfold tied so tight it’s cutting off the blood supply to the brain. Don’t know how you do it.

    Ratana are certainly sticking it to Labour. Not sure why they’re offering up fatted calves to Key though…creepy.

    How did Goof enjoy his visit to Ratana? I see that there is a very good report in the Herald and a few great lines – I especially enjoyed the following :

    Labour leader Phil Goff had to endure a speech praising Prime Minister John Key for being “a brilliant speaker” and “a person who should be admired”.

    To Goff’s credit the Herald did report

    “A seat in Parliament on the list is something that comes from merit and working and gaining the respect of your peers. It is not appointed by the leader or the president and that’s the way it should be.” to demands for 4 x Ratana seats high on Labourslist. Still not an easy day at the office and a bad start to the year for Goff.

      You obviously missed TV1 and TV3 News last night. Depends who you talk to really.
