The prince and the pea

Written By: - Date published: 8:45 pm, January 21st, 2015 - 76 comments

I have pointed out before that Bomber Bradbury is wee bit unsuited to the two way dialogue of the blogs. A fragile prima donna who doesn’t like to be contradicted by the people he gallantly slags off in his routine piques of bitchy ranting. Updated with Bomber proving the point as his manufactured myths fall apart.

The Worm turns: serves the media not democracy

Written By: - Date published: 11:11 am, July 14th, 2014 - 35 comments

I am really sorry to see the return of the Worm this election.   It’s bad enough we have way more polling than we need, interfering with democratic process.  Now we have even more of the same, with the way the Worm is to be implemented. [Updated]

Leadership rumours

Written By: - Date published: 6:45 am, March 26th, 2011 - 247 comments

It’s been a dreadful week for Labour.  So out come the oft repeated rumours of a coup against leader Phil Goff.  Usually this is just the ever predictable right wing blogs stirring.  This time the excellent Scoop news site is making the claim.  Scoop has it wrong.

Fact checking Key

According to Scoop, the PM is telling porkies about the average income of New Zealanders.  On behalf of the various authors here at The Standard I’d just like to say, well, gosh! — imagine our surprise.

Gluckman’s apology for National’s science package shredded

Written By: - Date published: 7:57 pm, May 13th, 2010 - 36 comments

Peter Gluckman is easily one of New Zealand’s most over-rated, under-examined public figures. Although little more than a corporate frontman out to extract as many public dollars for private interests as he can lay his hands on, because he’s called ‘Sir’ and he’s all ‘sciencey’ a lot of the tripe he spews goes unchecked. Well, not this time. […]

Maxim scores own-goal, embarrasses National

Written By: - Date published: 3:03 pm, May 11th, 2010 - 13 comments

A recently released UMR poll commissioned by right-wing think tank the Maxim Institute shows strong support for the policies of the last Labour Government and little taste for the reforms National is trying to push through. It seems that if you ask Kiwis what kind of policies they want, the answer is ‘make mine a […]

Campbell on political ‘management’

Written By: - Date published: 11:30 am, October 20th, 2009 - 2 comments

With the absolute dearth of informed political commentary in this country it’s a breath of fresh air to have Gordon Campbell back from the US. In his latest column at Scoop he makes a good point about the state of our political media: Management. There was a lot of talk about it at this particular […]

Gordon Campbell on Treasury and the resurrection of Brash

Written By: - Date published: 1:33 pm, July 22nd, 2009 - 12 comments

Gordon Campbell has a great piece over at Scoop about Treasury’s latest ideological outburst and the resurrection of Don Brash. He points out the futility of choosing a man who played a large role in creating our wage gap with Australia in the first place to head a commission designed to close it: Brash wants […]

Gordon Campbell has a great piece up at Scoop on the pitfalls of Public Private Partnerships, something we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the near future if National and its business mates get their way. Go have a read.

Gordon Campbell on the MoU

Written By: - Date published: 9:44 pm, April 28th, 2009 - 29 comments

Gordon Campbell’s latest Scoop column takes a very critical view of the Greens’ Memorandum of Understanding with National. While the Greens’ strategy is based on the need to cooperate with what they see as a likely two-term National Government, Campbell argues their cooperation may help turn that likelihood into a certainty. Despite the genuine merits […]

Campbell on the nine day fortnight

Written By: - Date published: 3:48 pm, March 13th, 2009 - 33 comments

Gordon Campbell’s pretty scathing of Key’s nine day fortnight scheme in his latest article at Scoop, describing the announcement as a sign workers will have to bear the brunt of the recession. Plainly, workers are going to be the first people over the side of the lifeboat during this recession. The main policy idea to […]

First as tragedy, second as farce

After Roger Douglas’ big comeback speech was accidentally released two days early on the Internet due to inept media handling, then parodied on youtube by a sockpuppet before it had even been delivered I didn’t see much point in bothering with the actual content. Funnily enough, not many others have either. But one person who […]

Who else are they spying on?

Written By: - Date published: 2:24 pm, December 17th, 2008 - 16 comments

Gordon Campbell raises a good question in his latest Scoop column – are the Police also using paid informants to spy on mosques? According to the original Sunday Star-Times article, the Police informant Rob Gilchrist was getting $600 a week for his information. This is a substantial amount, and more than enough to entice anyone […]

More gold from Lyndon Hood: Blogger Still Maintains Clark Just Like Mugabe The power-sharing arrangement Helen Clark has permitted after the opposition National party’s election victory may dissolve into violence at any time, reports an anonymous blogger who continues to insist New Zealand has become exactly like Zimbabwe.

No, not the one the Herald’s organising. Over at Scoop Lyndon Hood’s unveiled his own victory parade for John Key and I gotta say, it’s his best effort yet. Go over and have a look.

Gordon Campbell has an interesting take on the political PR we’re seeing from National in his latest Scoop column. In it he quotes Salon talking about the marketing of Red Bull to different niches: ‘ Walker noted that instead of attempting to assert the brand’s identity to a mass market, the manufacturer pursued a strategy […]
