Some see a call for a better country. I see a call for mental health funding! Up to the final paragraph, he was merely “out of touch”. With the last one, he added “with reality”!
Winston says sorry… Before we make a new beginning we want to use the hardest word in the English language – SORRY,” Mr Peters is reported to have said.”We acknowledge that we made mistakes. In keeping out eyes on the big picture, we failed to appreciate the importance of the details. Ah, so details like… Continue reading Winston oh-so-sorry… for being unable to spin himself out of the evidence
Homepaddock points out that Winston is avoiding Radio NZ. I can think of several reasons why that might be. 1. He prefers TV, where he can play off the visuals, and his looks. 2. He doesn’t like the harder questions that Radio NZ can pose. 3. He lied about not wanting the vote of morons.… Continue reading Peters Avoiding Radio
One thing you see frequently on the blogosphere (and the MSM) is that the headlines get quoted if the detail isn’t favorable, and the detail gets quoted if the headline isn’t favorable. The Winston headline that he was let off by the electoral commission has been all over the radio this morning, but reading kiwiblog,… Continue reading Detail vs. Headlines

He’s trying to blame this on Hide, “The only complainant in this sorry episode was a sad little man in a yellow… Continue reading Winston Let Off By SFO
Just so my readers aren’t totally out of the loop, Winston was censured last night but remains a minister without warrants (so much for the PM waiting on the Privileges Committee process). The Maori Party have reported that someone (they’re not saying who exactly) tried to heavy them. “An attack on our credibility over this… Continue reading Oh, yea Winston was Censured and they tried to bully the Maori Party
(Short story: if you read no other posts this week, read this from Hooton) I initially didn’t think much of the comment moderation over at what is now Chris Trotter and Matthew Hooton’s blog, but once Matthew came on board, it put it in a different context. In fact, it’s quite good to ahve a… Continue reading Lefty Makes Threats
