Yes, Christopher Luxon said he only spends $60 a week on food but, to be fair, he also said he has been visiting a lot of Food Banks recently
Paddy asked about a big health issue: bowel cancer. But nothing about a bigger health issue: Dental health. Why? Would having someone suffering from poor dental health care, in the audience and being interviewed afterwards, be too shocking
I thought I heard Luxon say his favourite book was "The Inner Mind of Tennis". That book doesn't exist. Perhaps he meant this article on plant consciousness... "The Inner Mind of Plants" https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/...
I agree AB, getting rid of the reliance on the petrol industry is anti-inflationary.
"… the timing suggests a bored and craven media running a hit to take the shine off a serious international trip." The timing also suggests the worst of Dirty Politics... to put the boot in when someone's down. Nasty Stuff.
I wish I knew more about horse-racing, but I think McCarten’s got himself a bolter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolting_(equine)
What about gold-card holders, some of whom have great difficulty standing on their own feet. Luxon must also be opposed to free public transport for them as well..
The thing about Bridges accent was not that it was a bit Westie or Māori, it was the smarmy, pompous NZ lawyer accent (think Finlayson) that he was trying so hard to emulate.
Or reverting to the narcissistic stage of early childhood.
There a Nat Party caucus retreat in Queenstown this week? Will they be flying AirNZ?
I managed to purchase some RATs, before the rush. But I can't figure out how to train them to smell and detect the covid virus...
Because a large part of what they do is perfunctory, a mayor needs razzamatazz. Something that Shearer lacks and Collins has a oodles of. Besides, who else can cite Hiedegger in an interview
Problem: The National Party is just an under-performing company. Solution: Let's all hold hands and sing 'Kumbaya.
I guess the US military was looking a bit woke before the American Civil War too. Trying to abolish slavery and all. A lot of the officers on both sides went to Westpoint together.
And what to call the submarine? ScoMo the Sub.. BoJo the Sub.. What about JoBo the Sub? No wonder Jacinda didn't want a bar of it.
But Chris Bishop's mouth is too small for his face.
It seems that as soon as one arsehole is cancelled, the vacuum is quickly filled by someone else. Mind you, the Bob Jones complete-tosser-space left plenty of room.
Hooten advocating for change in the leadership of the National Party... That went well the last time round.
Oi cornt weet fo da audiobook.
Tamihere's contribution was not declared to the Electorial Commission, but it was declared to the country... https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/mediawatch/audio/2018754945/broadcaster-and-nzme-apologise-to-john-tamihere
Or this image of the pretenders...
Taking the GST of fruit and vegetable would be more carrot than ... cane.
Katherine Rich... (spew!) And who audits the auditor? https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/politics/no-dirty-politics-fallout-for-katherine-rich/
A change from Benefit-bashing to Cop-clouting. Who says the National Party are short on ideas?
I don't know anyone who has been subjected to Gay Conversion Therapy, but I do know someone who was exorcised when she was a child. It is an extremely torturous and harmful religious practice.. See examples (just skip the Ads): https://www.stuff.co.nz/...
What was his name again? That orange man, with the funny hair. [Fixed typo in e-mail address]
One shouldn't laugh at anothers misfortune, but this is a Bolsanaro/Johnson moment. That sense of Justice, when a bag of shit leader gets a taste of what they have inflicted on their people
Critique of your ideological position is not attacking your human rights.
Religious people believing conspiracy theories. Isn't a belief in god the ultimate conspiracy theory? Some invisible supernatural being pulling all the strings.
Collins: “If you have got the secret to how you control a man who is 64 years old, used to play a lot of rugby and was a policeman, good luck and let me know.” Translation: "He's a chauvinistic a-hole."
September 19. Today Jacinda referred to "the philosophy of New Zealanders"... Go Early. Go Hard.
