@gt12 just watched her presser.
My deal my deal my deal. That was it. No opinion of mine has changed after tonight.
Time for sleep!
... the fluffiest of bunnies
I agree Sammy. NZ doesn't suffer the extremes of idealism that other countries, such as the US do right now. Look at the Fern, there are a range of view points but for the most part we all conduct ourselves with a degree of mutual respect (most of the time ). This was a commercial decision from Whitcoulls. It is one thing for a private business to make a decision like this, and they are well within their rights to do so. It is another thing entirely if a civil organisation banned the book. No civil rights or freedom of speech have been trampled here
I don’t agree. This whole episode proves NZ is no different to anywhere else.
Smaller population just means smaller number of voices.
Ignore the hyperbolic tweet description but the content is disturbing. Police admit he didn't commit a crime but they have been sent around to advise him that he is being watched with what he says online.
I'm all for people being held accountable for what they say on social networks, but sending cops around to peoples houses to say you've done nothing wrong but be careful, seems like a frankly ridiculous waste of resources!!
That said, we are where we are, and her comments on people being pissed off with MPs and just wanting to get on with things was spot on.
Absolutely. But trying to seperate herself from this? Fuck. Off.
As for Corbyn, who's spent the last year preaching on the need to reach out and get a consensus on a deal, walking out on May's party leaders meeting because a Labour defector was in the room.... Jesus wept.
Petty politics. Which Some may argue got us here in the first place.
I watched a new Jimmy Carr special on Netflix the other night. Some of his stuff is piss funny. I do like the contrast between his appearance, his delivery and demeanor, and what he actually says.
The thing that annoys me is that his ability to setup a joke is absolutely fantastic. But when I've seen him live, he doesn't tend to do it as much. Just likes to drop offensive one liners.
It's filtered here at work, but the bit about Racks Mum is sensational.
Just been relayed some information regarding the Crusaders winning streak..according to SANZAR even though the Saders v Landers match was abandoned,.therefore the Crusaders winning streak is officially over..a bit unfair if you ask me,after all no game was played even though there points for the draw given out.thoughts..?
Who is declaring it officially over?
