Did you really think it was a one hit wonder?

One hit wonder? No.

"Did you really think it was a one hit wonder?"

For the sake of honesty, yes.

Got me.

Ian

Oh ye of little faith, Belt.

Watergate took three years to completely unravel...this one's taken less than three weeks.

Just because the press gallery are fobbed off with a couple of press releases and a Clark soundbite doesn't mean they've actually got to the bottom of the story...

Part One last week was info I needed to get on the record. Now we've done that the real fun begins. Already working on Part 3.

Enjoy yourself. Make hay while th sun shines, as they say!

"cliams"; "alleged".

Yes, I think its a one hit wonder and desperation to get subscribers to your free rag.

Budgieboy

"Donations NOT declared by the Prime Minister"?

"Approved him against the advice of officials"?

Is that it???

Why can't you just get over yourself and focus on the REAL issues of the day, like the REAL Journos in this country do?

What about an MP's comments taken out of context and blown up all over the place?

A leader who is 'caught napping' when he says nothing and is 'playing petty politics' when he does? (On Bank deposit guarantee schemes)

Look Ian, I hope this digital paper of yours does well but if you ever want to get any significant coverage you need to be focusing on the fellas wearing BLUE rosettes, until then all this other stuff just doesn’t really matter at all.

Find (or invent) fault with those ‘blue’ guys and you will get wall to wall coverage but when it comes to the guys in red, well, nothing to see here move along.

The feedback is pretty consistent this time on the blog.

Also look at this little giggle everybody:

http://blog.greens.org.nz/2008/10/23/cutting-public-servant-numbers/

My only quibble is that the only Nat front benchers that have not stuffed up are:

Gerry Brownlee, Judith Collins and Murray McCully (and maybe Simon Power)

My God! I would have thought that Simon Power WAS the only very impressive one in this group. He seems to have shaken off the legacy of the hollow men - heck the ACT party is talking bout doubling jail capacity!

You would need bigger jails with the ACT trickle up policies. The peasants would be out there stealing loaves of bread.

Peter,

Yeah ACT will need to double jail capacity, if the full truth came out about some of their esteemed ACT candidates and their underworld business dealings. Some of their members should be doing a strench behind bars themselves!

All the major parties, the Nats, Labour, ACT etc are full of criminals. It's just Labour has a higher percentage of them!

Robin Hoodie

Apparently it is quite OK to take cash for Citizenship/Passports if you are protected by Helebans Police

Dan

let labour win the election I say, then we can see what wisdom these ignorant morons above have when the country goes down the crapper

tony norriss

Certainly explosive stuff and very concerning. I hope the mainstream media pick up on this.

Rick

Just read part two:

Labour are really in the Pou,

I mean, Wu...

sorry...

poo, now.

Part three ought to nail that coffin shut.

"let labour win the election I say, then we can see what wisdom these ignorant morons above have when the country goes down the crapper"

In away it doesn't matter which main party wins the election, because they're basically all the same.

The countries down the crapper already and been going down the crapper for the last 30yrs. The Nats are as bad as Labour. The Nats Maurice Williamson was responsible for destroying the Electricity industry and excessive price hikes!

I don't trust National as I don't trust Labour.

The like of the Roger Douglases, Ruth Richardsons, Jenny Shipley's and this Helen Clark control freq mob have done huge amount of damage to this country along with that big Baffoon of a blowhard David Lange and his Nuclear Free NZ Lies!

From what I've seen of the candidates up for election this time. I may not bother to vote and I know there's a number of other people who're thinking the same!

In the past elections since MMP I usually voted for NZ First. I don't think I bother with them again either!

NZ Politics over the years have become a cesspit of criminality with Labour on the top of that heap!

Dan

Ok Acid with that in mind, if you don't vote, don't you realise you are only helping Clark get back in as a minority govt?
The country has become so over balanced to the left that I think we have no choice but to give national a chance to bring a correction.
I personally think national are a better bet now than they were a few years ago to form a resonable govt, the alternative is a little scary to think about!!

peter

OK Dan

Please explain all the things that make National better than they were. A new leader yes, but look who is at deputy!

I do note that you expect no better than a "reasonable" govt, not an excellent or even capable govt.

The reality is that the senior National roles are still occupied by yesterday's politicians.

As for Liu .. it will now be after the General Election that this case will deserve any attention, if at all.

Right now it is nothing but a red herring.

peter

An article is buried quite deep into the Sunday NZ Herald. The position stated is far from clear.

Letters to the Editor refer to the right wing bias shown toward this issue in the previous Sun Herald.
