Eh Up Don Quixote...how's it hanging today ?
'What this says to NZ is that National, the biggest caucus in Parliament, is so full of Joe averages & useless time servers that they need an elaborate scheme to helicopter in a potential leader from outside – what a bunch of losers' Why on earth would you...
NZ Labour and the NZ Greens are leftist environmentalist parties ? Magic mushroom omelets for breakfast again Milt ?
True that, if however he'd come out and professed a deep desire to join Labour or the Greens, all and sundry would've no doubt been doing the bumhole remora dance.
'A christian. Great. Jesus is gonna ride in on a cloud, like a politician being helicoptered in but way cooler… so no need for these pesky alarmists and their global catastrophe concerns. Armageddon will save us.' Yes because all Christians must be climate...
'Blowing off steam and getting feedback is good for the troubled mind. Getting it out rather than being a festering little fuckwad.' Remarkable how many commenters here can both blow off steam and be a festering little fuckwad at the same time.
If I may borrow from Ms Clark and expand a wee bit ......there there didums
:lol: Looks like JK got into the LWNJ headspace just as much as Helen got into those of the RWNJs
...for my desire has been no other than to deliver over to the detestation of mankind the false and foolish tales of the books of chivalry, which, thanks to that of my true Don Quixote, are even now tottering, and doubtless doomed to fall for ever. ...
'Your a moron.' Comedy gold. :lol:
Minor discretion ? Not what I hear from an insider, I think he's gone to spare the company and him a great deal of embarrassment.
Stuart as Alonso Quixano and wild Katipo as Rocinante what a pair.
:lol: thank you for that Alonso Quixano
Nice to know some things at The Standard never change.
Nice trolling from Rigor, judging by the post and comments it's had the desired effect.
'And I am sure you will consistent with whataboutism the other way.' On a political blog in NZ ?......... are you drunk ?
Yep no argument that Trump is all of that. However the ongoing influx of immigrants at the border is also appalling - assuming the figures are correct in your link. What would we do if we had 1000 odd people arriving every month I wonder ?
That's a stunning piece WTB, thank you for sharing.
Winston's incontinence pants ?
"The effects will trickle around and help us all." Ye Gods Greg quoting Roger Douglas...isn't that one of the horseman of the apocalypse.
'You don’t wiggle out of moral issues by asking ‘the person in the street’. What a cop out!' Except during referenda....etc....muppet.
This is starting to look like the Keystone Cops have been hired down in Wellington to run Treasury.. Another Budget blunder: Treasury give journalists early copies by mistake https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12235784
Thought you we're taking the Michael before I clicked on the link....as you say you couldn't make this shit up.
'Judging by his perspicacious analysis of Simon Bridges’s breaches of the Crimes Act yesterday, his advice would be worth what you paid for it.' I'd pay exactly zilch for any legal advice from Lyn not that I believe he's taken an interest in making money ...
'I wonder if Winston is thinking of taking a civil case against them?' Gawd I wish that smelly old stain on NZ politics would cast of his mortal coil so we no longer had to suffer his dementia and the dubious behaviour of his caucus.
The hubris is a thing to behold.
'Makhlouf should now resign or be fired.' Heh...I remember the old days when people took responsibility. Long gone those days in most cases. He won't take any responsibility and you wonder if before going live with his comment he was instructed to do so ? ...
'Dirty National, just dirty, stinking the place up … .......The picture that comes to mind is the dirty mug of John Key… so dirty.., so National' Maybe from the more partisan political commenters who spend time on blogs and the like, I wonder what the ...
'But I am pretty certain there will be no recognition by The Standard of that.' I don't think you would get anyone taking that bet as it's a slam dunk certainty. Certainly no surprise that the competence of the bureaucracy to keep information secure has ...
Must admit to being far more interested in the actual substance of the budget rather than this sideshow. Will be interesting to see where the money goes tomorrow - I suspect most will find it pretty indistinguishable from a budget by the last government ...
