Gentlemen, Start your Thesaurus


There’s a word at the tip of my tongue, but I can’t remember it.

See, The Standard is complaining that the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (NZ Branch) known as The National Party and Associates (Herald, Sensible Sentencing et al) are running a “Death by a Thousand Cuts” campaign against Helen Clark’s glittering (glittering I tell you) legacy.

(Now, this in spite of this very blog removing the pages of material indexing Kiwiblog showing years of less than stellar actions on behalf of our revered former PM.)

Now, I think I have a pretty good memory of the last 10 years (among my other delusions) and I have one thing to say about that.

It’s a small thing that made it’s way into every single Labour Party statement for the first 7 years of Helen’s reign, without fail, still appearing less frequently after that.

“During the 1990s, the previous government…”

Update: Clarified the third paragraph

  1. “(Now, this in spite of this very blog removing the pages of material indexing Kiwiblog showing years of less than stellar actions on behalf of our revered former PM.)”

    scubone: What in the hell are you waffling about? There hasn’t been anything removed from the standard.

    The indexing system is suffering under the load of the sheer number of messages and posts. It is on my to fix list. But surely everyone knows how to do the google search that starts with something like:-

    site:htpp://www.thestandard.org.nz scubone

    (change the htpp to the correct protocol).

  2. I waffle about all sorts of things.

    I was referring to the “Offensive content” pages that were on *this* blog until the election, when I removed them.

    I’ve rewritten the paragraph to be more clear.
