    I think he's competing with Phil Twyford for top plonker govt. minister of all time. Although, looking back over the years, Tirikatne Sullivan and Mat Rata would possibly give them a run for their money.

    Left leaning media? You must be kidding.
    As for the PM bullying Simon. Kidding again. Keep it up though Seymour will be pleased.

    You might be right. Even Tova has moved away from her fawning adulation of the PM. When she implies eh PM is dodgy you know things arent good in the Labour camp (we never did find out who supplied the alcohol - so much for independent investigation and openness)

    Interesting article in NBR today written by Rodney Hide. He talks about the $1.4 B the Government has announced it will put into roads to cut deaths on our roads. Sadly, there is no plan that comes with the money, on how to achieve it. We should just trust Phil Twyford and his assistant Julie Anne Genter. Another Tui please

    I note your surprising lack of comment on the aftermath of the young Nationals event which resulted in charges of inappropriate touching. Underage drinking in a public bar and no comment?

    Rubbish out rubbish in. Do some homework and see what the swedish model has done and how many lives are saved but you have no interest in lives being saved, thats obvious.

    Its a quiet day so I will save you the trouble.

    Alleged event happen on 20 November. Within a week the Leader of the National Party was aware. Unlike Labour who apparently did not think the event important enough to alert their Leader. (Shes good like that - "I know nothing"!)

    The event allegedly occurred in a private house. Unlike the Labour event which was at a Labour organised accommodation.

    The event occurred after a Young National Eventy. Unlike the Labour event which occurred during the Labour organised function.

    It appears alcohol was provided after the National event at a commercial bar. Unlike Labour where it was provided during the event by some as yet unnamed party.

    The alleged victim was not a member of Young Nats, whereas the alleged victims in the Labour Sex Camp were members of Labour.

    There was one alleged victim vs 2 males and 2 female alleged victims in the Labour event.

    There have been no reports of Young Nats spewing their guts out after the event. Whereas some at the Labour Camp were really crook.

    There were no reports of Young Nats playing drunken party games at the pub. The Labour folk were so drunk they were dancing on the tables.

    There were no reports of the Young Nats organizer going to bed "early". Who knows why the Labour organizer felt the need for an early night - due to the report not being made public. Perhaps we should read between the lines on that one.

    National immediately provided support to the alleged victim and no attempt has been made to keep this quiet. Labour did all it could to keep their event quiet and the support that was provided was done by a Labour supporter - thus keeping it all "in-house"

    Seems to me chalk and cheese events.

    The minimum wage rate will rise from $16.50 an hour to $17.70, taking effect on April 1 next year, Workplace Relations Minister Iain Lees-Galloway and NZ First employment relations spokesman Clayton Mitchell announced today.

    Corruption? Nah, I am sure our socialist friends find a nicer word for this behaviour. Anyway - saves us paying the dole.

    Those wage increases inevitably cause the inflation cycle to kick in, leaving wage earners no better off, but of great benefit to those who own their own property.
