According to Victoria University, unless I have the wrong guy, Rodney Jones is a Principal of Wigram Capital Advisors, an Asian-based macro advisory firm that provides economic analysis and advice to leading global investment funds on developments in Asia....
Traitor definition, a person who betrays another, a cause, or any trust. I'm not so sure it is inappropriate.
We have no idea if these people were even able to make contact let alone get to the airport safely. I have no idea how we can get these people out safely now while still keeping our team alive.
I do believe you underestimate Jacinda Ardern.
Lucky I'm not drinking every time one of them says "Paddy".
My comment from before stands. Seriously, it seems like Judith Collins would gain 10% for National if she assaulted Jacinda Adern live on telly during the debate. Why does Jacinda have to sock it to anybody?
I'm beginning to think, based on the poll results post debate, and the stuff I read Collins saying, that a substantial percentage of NZers actually like violence, and seeing people hurting other people.
I'd rather not see that to be honest. ACT has a policy of doing away with the place I work, so I'm not keen on that.
I am curious though, we we are not getting any polling on the referenda? Is that not allowed?
Colmar Brunton poll looks like a Colmar Brunton. Always seems to be about 3% leaned towards the Nats. Hard to make much of it, but bless Jessica Mutch Mackay, she's trying to spin it like we finally have a poll we can rely on.
Wow. I like all that stuff. Nice to see the Covid worker support payments are going towards helping me make up my mind on who to vote for.
I am hoping you don't mean sick like my kids mean it.
Jesus, I hope this isn't going to turn into a "but her emails" election. Is there any legal impact if these emails have been deleted? Methinks MOH might have some questions to answer if it turns out that they were supplying emails to Michelle Boag on a ...
Billy Te Kahika, aka Billy T K. Great guitarist. Interesting ideas... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_TK
I should be staggered at this. I'm not. I guess Mr Muller ain't looking forward to the next poll.
Thanks for the heads up. A big Bob Mould fan. Zen Arcade is one of my top 10 albums ever.
Hmmm. It would appear that effective government is definitely detrimental to the opposition.
Weird. I never heard anyone saying that about Wellington City. You could always call it just Waikato. Easier said for some people that Kirikiriroa, as nice as that name is. If we can reclaim a mountain's name we can reclaim a city's name. If enough people ...
Should have been a dog going "woof woof".
I really miss being able to practice and play with my band. It seems to me that arts and entertainment have been completely relegated to "non-essential" and I'm struggling with that. I miss earning as much as I did. The reduced income is tough, but mainly ...
Indeed. I would speculate that Ross is all right with everybody else's parents and grandparents dying so that his business can make a tidy profit this year. After all, he's got his eye on a new boat, or maybe a new Audi.
Do you really have to ask that question? I've just asked the guys on Kiwiblog for a response and their silence is deafening.
It's getting no fun to go over there and wind them up. I used to be able to engage with them and have a bit of a convo, perhaps understand a bit of what made them tick the way they did. But alas, the place has gone total conspiracy theory over the last ...
It's really important that stories like these aren't lost. I wonder what historians will think, in the future, of the stories of what people did during the lockdown.
Been working from home since Monday as I'm high-risk category (Type I diabetes). Set up my audio capture and my video capture and editing suite. Doing some interesting capture of experiences of older New Zealanders talking about their times in the war and ...
meanwhile, USA looks on and says "hold my beer." Things are going to get really bad for the USA in the next week. I'm so glad we're in lockdown. I am starting to wonder if we are going to see the start of a Soviet-Union style breakdown in the USA over the ...
I am not the virus but I am a Killing Joke fan.
Yeah, fixed the mortgage last month. It ain't gonna help me. At least I can work from home.
Jeanette was responsible I guess for turning my party vote from Team Red to Team Green for the three elections prior to the last one. I wish we still had her likes in the greens today. A wonderful principled woman we'll not see the likes of again. Much ...
Messy for the Nats, but, ultimately, not really for Bridges, other than he was the leader of a party that had some dodgy stuff happening. He's far enough away from the mess that he won't be seen by the public to be at fault. JLR is screwed, though. I've re...
