    Wow Leighton Smith has just said hes going to smack people in the face as they are giving his producer a hard time.This is because he abuses anyone who doesn’t agree with his views,and tells them to get their own shows,his own words if some one disagress with him he retorts”you cannot dictate how i run my show” and because you need to be a card carrying nazi to talk to him

    David Seymour aka the Grinch who stole Christmas is keen to get rid of public holidays except ANZAC and Waitangi days. I’m not sure that it is much of a vote winner though. Perhaps he should follow his predecessor and exit stage right after Dancing with the Stars. You would have thought he would have had a soft spot for Matariki.

      You don’t want to be able to decide when you go on holiday then? You need the Government to decide that for you?

        I’m happy to holiday at my leisure but I’m also happy to be told that it is compulsory. A lot of people don’t have the ability to choose when they can holiday so I’m sure they appreciate the Staturies when they come around.

          Surely it is better to give them the ability to choose when they can holiday?

      Often a story from days ago finally makes it to NZ long after it has become stale on the world stage.

    Rightie women are just,, well better. This sheila takes it to whining Liberals and lets out a few secrets out about one of Donald Trump’s clubs. It has a gold framed portrait of him in the bathroom 😁. Love the ending were these decent Conservative folk have a little fun.

    Michelle Malkin and Anne Coulter are close runner ups.

            Yes I think you mean the one where he worked out who you were probably talking about because you posted about some woman named Rosie O’Donald who for all we know doesn’t even exist, or if she does why the mention of her name made people puke was frankly quite baffling. But look, I’m happy to leave it at this – unless you want to carry on?

    Mitchell (natl) still pushing the ‘tough on crime’ stuff again Q-time (prison guard ‘groped’ on A).. to Mr Little. same answers; ‘Yes.. but should not get 7 years jail’

    Paula doing the same to JAG (calling it ‘Sexual Assault’).. JAG just confirmed what Little said over last week.

    Followed by Mr Peters asking if ‘Hair pulling’ of young girls, (used a legal name) was also ‘sexual assault’ & why didnt they make a big deal about that ?
