      Must admit an getting annoyed with 1 news wasting news time on promotion items without a ” Promoted content” that print media signals .

    Is anybody going to the Blomfield book launch tonight? I am still overseas and can’t make it.
    Would be nice to get some live feedback..

  4. Seems cynical releasing this just after the headline hogging budget leak story put out there by National.

    Mr Bridges said he could confirm today “female members of Parliament have been part of this process”.

    When asked if the review in full would be released, Mr Bridges said, “what was always the undertaking from me was a summary of the recommendations”.

    “I can assure you it leaves nothing that is important or significant out.”

    Yeah, right.

    1) DRUG BUST !!
    5.5oz of meth & about 8oz of herb, plus some guns, bundles of cash, a few gold rings & art-work (?). Echoes of the ‘bad old days’ of the WAR ON DRUGS (1970s) !
    They added that they will be offering rehab./treatment (new Govt, policy)
    BUT.. it still looks like the Cops, cant help themselves, when it comes to ‘the GANGS & DRUGS’ :/ 😦
