Parliamentary Rapist? Try Hugger

Wow. “I was driving to Parliament the day af ter the bullying and harassment report on the place was delivered and heard on the radio that a ‘rapist’ could be stalking the corridors and it disturbed me greatly,” he said. However early that afternoon he realised he was the so-called “rapist” when he was summoned… Continue reading Parliamentary Rapist? Try Hugger

Heh – and some things never change

Another Kiwiblog post from 2007. The Greens should be ashamed for their role to date.  Labour could not have introduced this bill without their support.  They could have insisted on a multi-party approach to the legislation.  More importantly they could have  insisted on a public policy process instead of a secret one.  But they sold… Continue reading Heh – and some things never change

Now they’re willing to play with fire, risking the future of the polity over little more than… Continue reading Quote of the Day – Trump

And because some sort of trumped-up #MeToo thing was almost certain, a lot of people thought he should have picked Amy Coney Barrett. Kavanaugh was a fine,… Continue reading Kavanaugh

Cambodia, and destroying the world

I found this on Instapundit today. It’s so sad, I almost wept reading it. When Khmer Rouge forces seized Phnom Penh on April 17, 1975, the couple was living with eight of their children in a rural town called Kampong Chhnang. Three days later, the guerrillas arrived and residents — including Younly — cheered, relieved… Continue reading Cambodia, and destroying the world
