    kEITH @TS ..nails the Natz m.o.

    ‘So carefully and quietly our former knighted PM and his friends in the National Party toiled away in the shadows to ensure the wealthy could hide their ill gotten gains here in what was previously ethical honest NZ, no questions asked.

    And then some bastard who saw this laundry for what it was ruined everything by telling the world about the Panama Papers. And suddenly we were dodgy shifty NZ to the rest of the world.

    It was all going so so well’

      The Left’s myopic view. The rest of the world couldn’t care less. The fuss was entirely internal politics.

        Entirely Alan. Myopia appears to not exclusively affect ‘loony lefties’. From where I’m sitting, anyway… ๐Ÿ˜‰

          @patu, maybe you can see where someone in the rest of the world cared then, and show us too.

    I saw the interview with the 3 coalition MPs.. Seymour said the issue with Natz; ‘they campaign on the right, but govern on the left’ (Labour light) I agree, but their only real policy is ‘win at all cost’ (left, right or centre) pepsi & coke

      Snort! One of my teenaged boys just wandered in to the lounge, and I said “Yo son, when this clip ends, look at the newsreader, and tell me the first thing you notice about her”. So the clip ends, Jr spends about half a second looking at the TV, then spins around with a smile on his face! Then looks over his shoulder!
      Full credit, Jenny. You wear them well ๐Ÿ˜‰

        3+1 will be most helpful, to anyone who is wondering what I’m on about. I imagine that my dirty minded teenager, will be ‘tuning in’ too… ๐Ÿ˜€

              Whatever it was I missed it & sadly perhaps, in this case, will continue to do so. For reasons I can’t fathom TV3 only has odd-looking people – they all seem to me to look as weird as their logo.

              Righto. Done it. Some drama’s on at the mo. This better be worth it – I usually do the opposite when somebody YELLS at me like that ๐Ÿ˜€

              “Any thoughts, G???”

              All the time. Most of the time I restrain myself from expressing them or I’d probably be carted away to the funny farm.

              Nope. All I get is their stupid flocking logo, pulsating, in red, on the FiP.

              I’ve had a gutsful of the pair of them, G! It’s a workshop, not a bloody kindergarten! More on this tomorrow, but in the meantime, just one more, OK?
