    On the ‘scandals’…

    Martyn Bradbury’s 8-month story in the making is a fizzer – similar situation to Hager where police found to have unlawfully accessed his bank records. Always ironic that the left always cry about having their privacy invaded by the police but feel quite justified in the fact Slater’s emails were stolen and then selectively published for public consumption.

    It appears the Winston story isn’t the big story that has been promised to break today. It also doesn’t appear to be the dominatrix story regarding a certain National party person that someone has been hawking around the press either.

    On TV One an item with James Shaw cleaning up rubbish on a beach. Was about te Greens plastic bag policy. That’s the Green advantage – compare that to NZ First (specialising in anti-immigration). The Greens are “up at the front and down at the back” – radicals.

    What was the last poll – Roy Morgan?

  4. Poor Bomber. He’s like that fat bully from Intermediate. Threats are two a penny, has a heap of bully mates backing him up, talks big, but when the headmaster finally gets the cops in he’s shocked and professes not to understand why.

    I’m sorry he has ( allegedly) mental health issues. I’d prescribe a month in Varanasi and absolutely NO digital media.
