The juxtaposition in this screen shot of the ‘NZ Taxpayers Union Inc’ astroturf lobby group receiving a government-funded subsidy makes me chortle
Sure, we’re all entitled to put our hand out for government support in times of need. No question about that. But THESE GUYS*? What a joke. (Except it’s real. Check for yourself: COVID-19 Wage Subsidy Employer Search) – P * We’ve discussed them before, here, a little bit. UPDATE: Thanks to a reader, I’ve now […]
Best line I’ve read all week. From a delightful column by Andrew Geddis at Pundit: ‘Simon Bridges thinks that Simon Bridges is eroding parliamentary democracy‘. Seriously, it’s a lovely column. Go and read it if this stuff appeals to you. With bonus Edglering in the comments. Bravo to all concerned. Even my Tory mates think […]

Boy, I’ve been looking forward to hearing what this heart-warming couple comes up with … Very nice. – P Acoustic version here, which I actually prefer.
I skim-read, and was just about to download the Transparency Report Regarding Use of National Security Authorities from a web page run by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, when I remembered spotting this: [McAfeee] attributed the trend to Adobe’s greater popularity in mobile devices and non-Microsoft environments, coupled with the ongoing widespread […]
I spotted this National Party campaign ad yesterday thanks to @jamileeross who tweeted it into my timeline. Hmm, I thought, monochrome, concrete block bunker, working the phones. Looks like they’re going for a 1960s Kennedy campaign vibe. I wonder who’s on the other end?
I lived around the corner from this sign in Howick for a few years but don’t recall seeing any ducks — crossing or waiting to cross. Was it a joke?
