The Rockefeller Skank

Kudos to Mike Hosking - I saw him at some stage last week decrying synthetic cannabinoids without a hint of conscience about his blatant shilling for the much more destructive gambling sector.  There are very few people who are sufficiently self absorbed and venal to be able to do that kind of thing with a straight face.

Walking Off A Cliff Again

If only we were still try to catch up with Australia.  Over there they can see the need to resign over a scandal, even the ones from the Mad Monk's Party.  Meanwhile back in NZ even a sticky stinky scandal leaves our politicians pretending it wasn't them.

Dear Mr Key, where are those higher standards and transparent government you said you would deliver?

It Doesn't Change

When your only solution to everything is "the market", everything is for sale.  Everything.

Girl On The Wing

Gosh, a month since I last posted, and still the sore I last posted about festers.
So, Judith Collins had a shocker at QT in Parliament today.  In spite of all that's been said and done, she used "it was a private dinner" as a reason for not answering questions about the scandal she has ensconced herself in.  So, let's test that idea: 
Would the dinner have occurred if Mrs Collins had had to fund the costs herself?  If no, then it was not a private dinner.  
Would the dinner have occurred if Mrs Collins had not been a Minister in the NZ Government?  If no, then it was not a private dinner.
