    What??? An early election because of this. It's hardly Watergate. If something of this nature leads to an early election then we'll be having elections called every 3 months.

    An "Ambitious young feminist" has a male put his fingers in her vagina, without her permission and then doesn't report this attack to Police. Really??
    What did she think would happen by keeping it "In house". Her employer are not Police, they likely know the fellow,, they don't have forensics etc etc.
    "Dumb young feminist" I'd say.

    Oh, I don't know about that. What a lovely picture of the Prime Minister comforting Issac Luke after his last game for the Warriors on the weekend. She's got the personal touch. Plenty of voters like that.

    Oh dear!! President Trump has now crack the shits with Denmark, after they scoffed at his offer to buy Greenland off them. The President refuses to visit there now.
    What does Q have to say on Denmark? Are they part of the "Evil Empire"?

    Reading these last few postings it appears Hillary Clinton was a wicked woman. A traitor even.
    The gist is Hillary Clinton is evil - so we have to have Donald Trump.
    I would ask "If we accept Hillary was/is evil - why does that mean we have to have Donald Trump? Why can't we have another Republican; a decent one; who doesn't resort to name calling and bigotry. One who hasn't gone with prostitutes, then paid money to shut them up; one who doesn't undermine world peace by making policy merely to get back at his predecessor. etc etc; one who builds bridges not walls etc etc.

    Anonymous booing in a large crowd says more about the booer than the person being booed. Look at Quade Cooper - still booed by rugby crowds in NZ 10 years after he did whatever he did; Steve Smith - booed by the Poms after being hit in the head by a cricket ball; Jacinda Ardern - booed by a crowd who paid a minimum $150 per ticket, have never voted Labour, nor are ever likely too.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Pam Robson in Babies death   
    If we are to believe "Hands off our Tamariki" protesters; these parents and their five remaining children will be getting support from their whanau, hapu and Iwi. There will be no need for any intervention from a state agency such as Oranga Tamariki.
    Why this whanau, hapu and Iwi support wasn't occurring prior to the baby's death, I wouldn't know.

    Now that secondary school rugby is winding up there's no need to fear....the National Provincial Championship and Heartland Championship are upon us. So don't worry if you can't work out how to get Spark coverage of Japan. Just get along to your local towns main park, buy a hotdog, put a bucket on your head, buy a beer, toast B.J Lochore and watch some good old fashioned Kiwi rugby.

    Kicking and screaming into the 21st century. No choice really. Locally around here, the Dairies all dropped Best Bets in favour of the Informant. Now the Informant is gone none have brought back Best Bets. There's no print form to be had in the area.

    That's not a bad read. The problem here is this portion of land has now become largely symbolic for all sorts of Maori grievances. I can't see any building proceeding without mass protests tying up Police resources. I'd make the land a park, no buildings at all and provide Fletcher's with Crown land to build on elsewhere.

    100 to 1's postings on suspected paedophile Jeffrey Epstein is a classic example of how he operates.
    Plenty of info linking personalities he dislikes to Epstein; but nothing about President Trump's well documented links to the same man.
    You will note how the majority of 100 to 1's posts follow this same pattern.
    Anything in the media, no matter how dubious the source, which is Pro Trump, is put forward by 100 to 1 to highlight how glorious his hero is.
    Anything anti-Trump in the media, is immediately dismissed as "fake news", coming from people with an agenda.
    My view is that there is "a swamp" in the US, occupied by self-indulgent politicians, top bureaucrats and the wealthy. However, far from genuinely wanting to clean it up, President Trump sits right in the middle of said swamp. Just like Yurtle the Turtle, King of the pond.

    It's been a great build up this week, hasn't it Crusty? Even I'm now interested in what's going to be in the Budget. Once delivered later today the Govt will claim it includes everything NZ's could ever desire and the opposition will claim it's a shameful misuse of taxpayers money and resignations are required all round. Either way the rest of us will have lost interest by the weekend.

    Open letter to rdytdy
    Your repetitive critique of Jacinda Ardern, tiresome and subjective that it might be, occasionally sees you raise some valid points. However, this harping on about her response to the Mosque massacres in Christchurch is borderline at best. I'm sure you're merely looking to leave further black crosses against the Prime Ministers name. However with this "we are Christians - they are Muslims" line of attack you end up sounding like it's "them and us". It's extremely divisive, and will not have gone unnoticed by many New Zealander's, or the couple of people who read your posts.
    It's not who we want to be in NZ any longer. You're out of step - you sound like a dinosaur - someone born in the 1800's.

    I purchased The Informant religiously, finding it the best $10. I spent each week. It provided me with a form guide to carry around; comments from trainers about where their horse was at fitness wise; many articles to keep me up to date with the happenings in NZ racing and great articles on the breeding of Group winning horses. Loved hearing the thoughts of Des Coppins. old Grumpy Pitman, The 'Boys Go Racing' guy, etc, etc.
    I'll be lost without it and I'm certain my interest in horse racing and TAB betting will drop away accordingly.

    I can't believe there's been no comment on here about this gutsy win. Shows how much the Race Cafe Sports section has declined.
    I watched with one eye and no belief when the Pakistani's only needed 30 more with 6 wickets in hand. However then that little Indian bloke with the broad Kiwi accent started to weave some magic, along with the South African fellow with the Kiwi accent. Both seem very proud to play for New Zealand - a bit like Bundi Aki  over in Ireland. In the end it was edge of the seat stuff. A great win. One of the best sporting moments I've viewed on TV.

    Yeah... keep this up triple alliance. There's a bigger picture here and your churlish chipping of the PM, while she's promoting NZ on the big stage, shows just how dim you are. Even Simon Bridges and rdytdy have gone quiet for a few days.
