Morning. Finally got some decent rain in the Waikato overnight.
Pleased to hear that WG – down here that would be just a normal day. We had over 100 for 2 days straight a couple of weeks back, admittedly it did bring the bridge down again !
20ml a couple of weeks ago and 24m last night. Not up to WC standard but the lawn isn’t as crisp as it was.
Julian Assange arrested overnight. The Equaidor Embassy told the police to come in and take him.
The Ecuador had finally had enough of Assange who was rude and abusive to embassy staff, interfered with security cameras and the final straw was Assange threatening the government of Ecuador. The judge called him a narcissist.
The Americans will love to get their hands on that guy! Now let NZ hand over Fats Dotcom….they would make very cute prison cell mates! (my only concern is the cat- i hope he finds a decent home for kitty before he is extradited LOL)
Two narcissists in a cell together. That’ll work! ?
Was anyone else disappointed with the Assange exit?
I would prefer to have seen those big doors swing open and a couple of very big gentlemen physically throw the bastard to the ground outside whereupon a single Pom bobbie would have gripped Assange by his ear and led him off to the local nick.
Would have made far better television.
Any news of the cat?
Yeah supplies were running low towards the end so he had it satay style?
An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells him, “You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it, and it would taste better if you bought one at a time.” The Irishman replies, Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other is in Australia, and I’m in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days we drank together. So I drink one for each o’me brothers and one for me self.” The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, “I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss.” The Irishman looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he laughs. “Oh, no, everybody’s just fine,” he explains, “It’s just that me wife had us join that Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking. But it hasn’t affected me brothers though.”
So I was having a bit of a play with words that could be added to National going forward to the election, Holysheet had a post titled, ‘I guess things just do not change over time’. I think National could have fun with using their name as the anchor for their election campaign.
A friend of mine at the last election voted for the first time, she voted NZ first entirely because of the sentiment expressed in the name. She won’t do it again lol, but it goes to show that even in your 50’s that it is never to late to get an interest in politics.
National pride, now we can’t be more inclusive than that.
The living deserve as much respect as the dead, poor little innocent thing.
Heartbreaking. I have a 5-year-old daughter. I can’t imagine what the parents are going through.
A white supremacist? You can tell just by the name?
Some topics are already unavailable, can they be accessible on the side too please?
do you mean the topics have gone, or cannot be seen?
Pass, I was trying to find the Labour isn’t working one. I did find it again but think it would be easier on a side bar.
there you go, have a look now, it goes up to 30 posts. Is that enough?
So the Trump supporting white supremacist yelling abuse at the mosque in Christchurch turns out to be part Maori.
Well how is the media going to sell this one, possibilities are as follows:
1.Talk up the white part of his background
2.Completely ignore the ethnicity of the offender suddenly
3.Point out he is Maori but blame colonialism
fixed your post going to moderation. you can now say similar things and it will not be moderated.
Removed the offending phrase.
Can the ‘Have your says’ be date coded please? As we progress that might be helpful.
each “Have your say” page has the date to the left of the title
Sorry , but you have to click on it to see that, is it possible to do it where it appears on the side bar? Otherwise one has to click on them all to see the latest. Or to find another that might have been posted on.
all of the above, and you can forget it being made an issue by the stinking MSM
nah hes such a good boy. His whanau will blame his whitey blood for corrupting his maori blood.
Nothing more will be said
I was off looking for an article that said that it was difficult to grow a beard and gonads to post about Assange but then I found this.
TV personality buying his lawnmower supplies from a rival gang. The Angels will be pleased their opposition have been hobbled.
Jacinda and Clarke will of course know him well, them being so in, Clarke being media too apparently, I do not think that we should have self styled media personalities in NZ.
Golriz might know him well too through her partner. Doesn’t she live with Guy Williams? I think I read that they bought a house together, as an apostate she has embraced the decadent west whole heartedly?
He looks like he’s aged 20 years in his cave. Time to settle the score buddy. You’re f*cked.
