    Grace Millane murder trial

    The Lawyer for the accused has now played the "My client wont take the stand" card. This is now common practice in NZ murder trials. It's done to prevent the accused being shown in a bad light by needing to alter his story to fit the facts, such as David Bain had to do in his initial trial. Taking a line through Bain's retrial and the trials of Chris Kahui and MacDonald from Feilding, I think the jury would struggle to find this fellow guilty of murder. They will likely agree he most probably did murder her, but can't be 100% certain of this. So its "Not Guilty"..........I hope I'm wrong. because his action "post-death, read like a man with a guilty secret, that he's looking to cover up.

    Now this reads like a sensible summary of what's occurring in the USA. At least there's no talk in this post of "the deep state", "draining the swamp" and "lying Hillary". Quite honestly those are catch phrases designed to suck in the gullible.

    A couple of things???????? Crusty - You've had nothing good to say about Rugby Union since you began posting on this site.

    Above is my reply to the 100 1 post below "Everything is coming to a head and October it will be revealed for the world to see." Well it's now 1 November and as I suspected nothing has been revealed. Nor will it be. Donald Trump is not interested in destroying the Deep State. Donald Trump is merely interested in what is best for Donald Trump. 100 1 - If you want your Deep State revealed and destroyed you need to find yourself another Champion. Donald Trump is not the man for this job.

    Kicks were poorly executed on the night. They kept doing them cause they could find no other way through the defence. Standing off at rucks/breakdowns is a tactic the AB's often employ (recall the Boks try in the opening game.). The Ref shouldn't need to have a second glance, because he has the TMO's to Police the off side line.

    England

    The only certainty in this game is that "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" will drown out the haka. After that it's 50-50. At $3.25 England are well over the odds.

    See this is the problem. Ohokaman is now an "enemy of the people". But who are "the people"? You say this as though they are some sort of great silent majority. Not here in NZ they aren't. Ohokaman appears to be an average Kiwi bloke who doesn't like Donald Trump. That would make at least 80% of New Zealander's, "enemies of the people" So "the people" must live somewhere else. I would suspect they reside in Missouri, USA.

    Typhoons

    Problem with rugby players is they're all soft these days. I can remember playing in a typhoon up at Kimbolton, back in the day. Couple of the boys got hypothermia, but they came right.

    Landfills

    I think the Manawatu RC should arrange for some horses to be grazing up there on race day. That would be a nice touch.

    I'm not sure if it's leaching, but that old Tip behind the Awapuni racecourse now looks like a very attractive hill.

    Hasn't Grant Robertson done a great job with the books. $7 billion in the black. No $11 billion fiscal hole here. That makes Steven Joyce $18 billion out. Thank goodness he's gone.

    I often see fit to criticise President Trump. Not because I'm brainwashed, but merely because I know a used car salesman when I see one. However, in regard to the US troop pull out of Syria, his actions are in line with what he stated when campaigning for the Presidency. No problem there.

    2019 Grand Final - What a farce.

    The two Rooster tries came immediately following incidents that negatively affected Canberra. 1. The Roosters trainer is hit by the ball with Canberra player leading the pursuit. 2. Ref signals 6 more tackles to Canberra, then changes his mind. It's a shambles.

    President Trump is saying he needs to clean up corruption when he suspects it. And so his confidential approach to Ukraine for assistance, in return for rewards from the USA. However, the corruption President Trump suspected wasn't wide ranging. It was very narrow. In fact his request only focused on the family of his likely main opposition in the upcoming election. I'm not sure if that's illegal. It probably is; but whichever way, it's not what you want the leader of your country doing.

    That worldwide economic crisis commenced in early 2007. The NZ election took place in November 2008. John Key made promises during that election campaign that he knew full well he would be unlikely to keep.....and John Key comes across far more trustworthy than "Shifty" Simon Bridges. He reminds me of the kid who rats on the lads smoking behind the bike sheds.

    Jacinda Ardern

    During his 2008 election campaign John Key said that,, if elected, a National Govt would not raise the GST rate. In the 2010 Budget the John Key led National Govt announced a 2.5% rise in the GST rate, taking it from 12.5% to 15%. It was referred to in the media as a "flip flop". Why then should we, the NZ public, believe any tax cut claims the National party might currently be making?

    I recall when Prime Minister John Key caused pain in my back pocket with his sneaky little rise in the GST rate.

    The Trump wave is rolling, and it won't be stopped Joe Bennett04:30, Oct 02 2019 President Trump calls the proceedings against him a 'hoax' as Democrats race to quicken pace of inquiry. OPINION: The wave is building that will sweep Trump from power. And if it doesn't, well, the thing about waves is that they keep coming. We'll know it's over when his henchmen turn on him. The first few to turn may get immunity, but the rest will join Trump's campaign manager, his attorney and his first national security advisor in prison. It will be fun to watch. But the primary spectacle will be Trump himself. Psychiatry has got Trump sprawling on a pin like a beetle in a display case. The tag on the pin through his thorax says malignant narcissist. The clinical definition of malignant narcissism fits Trump like a leotard. For the malignant narcissist only self matters. So he is literally incapable of feeling empathy for others. What could be more true of Trump? In Puerto Rico after a hurricane he lobbed paper towels to survivors as if throwing fish to performing seals. In a Texas hospital after a mass shooting he posed for the camera with thumbs up, a big grin and a freshly orphaned baby. READ MORE: * Trump hints at civil war but he launched a war on facts * US President Donald Trump asked Australian PM Scott Morrison to help discredit Mueller investigation * Joe Bennett: The gods always find a way to punish us * I fell for a narcissist, then America fell for one - how can we avoid their charm? * Joe Bennett: Give yourself a golden opportunity at Trump University The malignant narcissist seeks praise to bolster his fragile self. Trump will take praise from anywhere. He revels in the flattery of dictators like Kim Jong-un. And if he doesn't get praise he invents it. "So many leaders have come up to me and said sir, your economy is the envy of the world." ADVERTISEMENT Advertise with Stuff AP Donald Trump speaks with the country's first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, 'looking' over his shoulder. Because the malignant narcissist acknowledges no self but his own, he demands loyalty from others but gives none in exchange. Again, that's pure Trump. Anyone who opposes him is instantly dismissed. By now the only people still at his side are sycophants like Pence and cynics like Pompeo. For the malignant narcissist there is no such thing as truth. There is only what's good for his self. So Trump lies. He lies obviously, brazenly, laughably. When the media points out those lies, Trump feels no shame. Instead he accuses them of fake news. In other words he accuses truth-tellers of lying about his lies. Trump feels no shame because shame implies fault and the malignant narcissist cannot admit fault, about anything, ever. So when Trump wrongly suggested a hurricane might hit Alabama and the official weather service corrected him, his psychiatric disorder wouldn't let him just say that he'd made a mistake. AP Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence. Instead he took a weather map and doctored it, drawing a new line on it by hand, a line that took in Alabama. He then presented that map on television as if it were the truth. It didn't matter that others didn't believe it. It mattered only that he preserved his own sense of being right. The malignant narcissist ignores the law because the self is more important. So Trump solicits aid from foreign countries to get himself elected because it never occurs to him not to. He got help from Russia in 2016. He sought it from Ukraine this year. And that is what he'll be impeached for. But his pathological psychology will be unable to accept the impeachment. He is already calling it treason. He will throw tantrums like a 5-year-old. He will scream that everything is rigged. And he will refuse to go. So the men in white coats will have to take him away. And as they come for him Trump will try to destroy everything around him, because a world that rejects his self, that throws him from office, literally cannot exist. All this, according to the psychiatry textbooks, is inevitable. What a joy it will be to watch. And it's starting now. The Press

    Excellent! Now we have a definitive date. Let's review on 31 October 2019 and see what has been "revealed." I'm going to guess that the only thing revealed in October will be more dubious, self-promoting dealings by Donald Trump. However, I'm willing to give it a chance, now we have a date.

    I've been sitting in the same cinema for three years, watching the trailers, which consist of 100 1 repeating, "Enjoy the show." I'm asking myself "When is the show going to start?"
