    What would you expect from a bunch of bureaucrats who think they are little gods?

    Calling him a ‘fatty po po’ is mild in my estimation. Most I know have considerably worse names for him

      Have you thought about sending your CV to Rebecca Kitteridge? Sounds like you’re just the sort that the S.I.S are looking for 😦

        Thanks but no thanks. I make more money in the private sector and call anyone what I like without the risk of my emails being released to Kim Dotcom’s hagiographer David Fisher under the OIA

    Collins and Williamson – I imagine any right leaning faction within the Nats were buoyed by their perplexing loss of Northland, but that high polls since have frustrated any attempts at influencing caucus and plans of insurrection. Seymour’s savvy tell-tale has dented their aspirations even further. It surprises me that Collins (and Williamson to a lesser degree) haven’t factored in the degree to which their relationship with Slater has made them deeply unpopular in the wider party. I’m perplexed as to why she didn’t really hang Slater out to dry when she had the chance, but anyway she didn’t and consequently there is still the perception they’re friends. Not good for her.

    • Collins and Slater have a long running familial connection. You don’t dump people for public perception reasons when you’ve know them since they were children. Judith has many faults in my eyes, but I reckon she is at heart a very loyal person,

        “Public perception” reasons? He lied about her and made her seem complicit in his pay for commentary relationships.
