    Brilliant idea. Or maybe even a "losers" thread as it would suit JLR better. Not being pedantic either

    Hardly brutal. No threat made - just a silly comment.

    I score her -5 in her taste in men.

    But I give her 10/10 for sending a blast.

    I have trouble accepting the media reporting the details of such personal tragedies for these 2 people and worse, their families. It really has no "public interest" value. Quite sad and many people affected and this twit (JLR) wants to keep it in the media.

    National really on a roll here

    A-G refers Maggie Barry staff claims back to Parliamentary Service

    Its common knowledge around the parliament traps how Barry treats staff is what ive heard.

    Yeah, I saw that. Fair enough standards are required n teh House.

    But I know Labour will find this hard to believe, but there is such a thin as free speech. They tried shutting it down today, and Mallard has signalled that he will silence people.

    Totally and absolutely wrong to do so!

    Yes I had seen the whole text. There's nothing there to threaten any adult. Just bizarre childish insults that you'd normally hear in a secondary school playground.

    l.php Capital gains tax, a vested interest.

    "The scale of MPs' real estate holdings suggest not just that the financial interests of politicians and commentators may be influencing the ongoing CGT debate; it also suggests New Zealand's particular form of wealth inequality is increasingly colouring our politics."

    The Mainzeal court adjudication doesn't help National's case much - a previous Prime Minister happily sitting on the board of a company that traded in an insolvent position for nine years straight. Lucky they had insurance.

    As for damaging National? Meh. Shiply is so 1990's. I think most people can not even remember her.

    That said, what the hell was she thinking that she could be successful in a governance role with her vast experience in the business world.

    I would have thought heading up the country's public/taxpayer operation for a while (50bill or so turnover) would have taught her a few things, but maybe she wasn't a forensic accountant. School Cert bookkeeping and commonsense might have given her a few clues though. Looks like Mainzeal paid IRD and other secured creditors, but loaned millions to Richina at the expense of contractors etc. Normally, cash-strapped creditors in NZ would be bending the ear of board members that they had access to.

    "his basic maths error by a senior member of the National Party grossly misleads New Zealanders who see this advertisement."
