    His Holiness the Dali Lama who is 83 years old has been admitted to hospital in India with a chest infection.

    It will be interesting when and if His Holiness passes on to his next reincarnation whether politicians of a party in the thrall the Chinese Communist Party make the expected statements of condolence.

    Lawrence O’Donnell, host of “The Last Word” on MSNBC, has described Grover Norquist as, “the most powerful man in America who does not sleep in the White House” because of his ability to control Republican Party politics.
    It is surprising the media have not shown more interest in this ultra conservative former NRA board member who does not believe in taxation.
    Brought to New Zealand by the Tax Payers Union he was spotted dining with Simon Bridges.
    God help NZ if his ideas have any influence on the National Party.

    Brilliant. Taxation is theft at best. Would be good to see one of our parties in Parliament or Government advocating for less tax.

    Why the Treasury non-hack may still have been illegal

    "The offence also covers serious situations such as someone getting into a website with private or financial details because of a security flaw. The question is not whether the security was good enough to prevent access: the question is whether there was authority to get access."
    Should be jail time for some national party members and bridges should be under house arrest with no access to computers.
    Unethical. immoral and illegal.I disagree with the no hack title.A low level hack but a hack with thousands of attempts over two days

    Haha you are joking and dreaming if you think bridges and National party members are going to get jail time. Colours showing.

    BTW if the max sentence is 2 years and its a first offence, the offender would get way less, possibly diversion first time, and if now say gets 6 months it will be home detention. So jail is definitely off the cards. Good try though.

    Be a great way to get rid of Bridges though, the trend is down with him around. But who to replace him with. Collins the smiling assassin has far too much baggage(dirty politics, Oravida etc). Wannabe Mark Mitchell does not present well and was a sniper( i think) in previous life. Bennett is playing a smart game totally loyal but when the time comes she will have a pick me flag up but won't make the first step, she will get someone to nominate her, kick and scream and pounce on it if offered.. goldsmith, kaye woodhouse options?

    So what if Mark Mitchell was a sniper in a previous life. No problem for me unless some defence force job descriptions are now illegal? Bridges needs to go, I think he is leading National nowhere. Collins would be fine and her baggage will not worry the standard National voter. Bennet never a chance. Amy Adams is also a possibility. Plenty of people to replace Bridges and ensure National win again in 2020.

    Are the media relations drones from the United Front organization which is also a significant political party drafting statements supporting the Peoples Liberation Army possibly sorting out those protesting counter-revolutionaries and splitists in Hong Kong?

    Tiananmen Square II, squashing people with tanks, it's what the PLA do.

    If there is a change in National leadership, and that is not a sure thing by any means, it is looking like Ms Collins the front runner.

    Baggage? Ha, beltway non-issues and in any case lost in the mists of time. She won't care a jot. Very popular in her electorate too.

    Extremely dirty baggage unfortunately, we won't forget that.
