It will be interesting to see where he is in another 10 years, and if his name is still Sonny.
Sunni Bill Williams? I'm probably late to the party on that joke.
A man wrote to the NZ Herald yesterday saying that he was at the airport with his wife and young children when they saw Smith "sneak" into a wheelchair access bathroom with a young woman who was not his partner.
"The pair were in the bathroom for 5-10 minutes and from the noises coming out of the bathroom there was absolutely no question what the couple were doing in there.
"Mr Smith then came out of the room on his own straightening up his white checked shirt and black dress pants (the All Blacks uniform they were all wearing at the time).
"About a minute later the young lady comes out of the same toilet cubicle looking equally suspicious. bolded textI myself did not have a problem with this... my wife however is protesting that this is disgusting for a public figure to do this.
From the Herald article.
The most distressing thing about this incident is that it is dividing families.
Kmart is really fucking good for females frittering away money, I can confirm that.
Yeah, JK ate Campbell's lunch in the GCSB one. Campbell tried his best to land punches all interview and Key just had the bat and pad close together and then left everything outside off stump. A tremendously skilful performance in negating the treachery of the left's most persistent media mouthpiece. Oops, am I using the boxing or the cricket metaphor?
I think it was only a week later when Bridges and Campbell shouted at each other for ten minutes - a completely different game on an equally tough pitch. That one over offshore prospecting?
@No-Quarter Wags is magnificent. I love the guy. He looks like he is trying at least 10% harder than everyone else. And his aggro is genuinely paying off. His average is now better than Boult's and I think he's 6th all time for NZ (min. 50 wickets) on averages and 12th on wickets (should be up around 8th by the end of the summer unless Boult or Southee pig out on the Bangles).
With all these grammatical errors now in the public domain, the CEO and Board of this esteemed publication will be forced to front the media to apologise for the actions of lazy subeditors. Advertisers and sponsors may tear up contracts and this house of cards will tip over eventually.
I didn't watch One (sorry, "1") News last night because a) I was out, and b) I hardly ever do anyway, but can someone tell me if Simon Dallow used the phrase "it's not a good look'' at some stage during their expose - disabled toilet and all? From the very few times I've watched during a scandal, It's a favourite of his as he rides his trusty steed named Moral High Horse. I get the feeling it's his own editorialising, rather than anything scripted by the journo.
Simon Dallow? You mean the guy who turned his wife into a lesbian and then fucked half the blonde dolly birds in the newsroom? Yes, Dallow should editorialise about public figures and their private sex lives.
@Billy-Tell That's an epic whinge packed into a short report of a radio interview.
Here's the highlights:
I thought I was at the Colosseum on Saturday night...
deeply, deeply disturbing
The game is in serious trouble, because this is a disgrace
What happened to Robbie Henshaw is a disgrace
I think there was three head injuries, a number of neck injuries
The All Blacks raped my grandma and poured sugar in my petrol tank.
@antipodean I should clarify my description of her "achievement". It is indeed an achievement for a person to become their country's leader. I agree it is not an achievement for a woman to breed, but rather I am referring to the historical significance of her being, I believe, the first woman to give birth to her FIRST child while leading a country. Benazir Bhutto appears to have been the first modern female leader to have a baby in office, but it was her second child (big difference between first and subsequent children).
She will doubtless be celebrated for this worldwide for eternity (unless the patriarchy can erase the history books) for this achievement.
Congratulations to Jacinda and her bloke. I don't like her politics at all, but she has ticked off two incredible achievements within a few weeks of each other. She is in for a tremendously challenging time and I hope she copes and thrives. She is facing being a first time mum while travelling and working long and demanding hours and the most public job in the country.
I can certainly foresee an excruciating level amount of media interest in her pregnancy and motherhood as PM - the level of interest will eclipse John Key's private life many times over. Every move she makes as an expectant mother and mother will be scrutinised like Kate Middleton. She is well and truly a celebrity PM now.
