    2 great posts yesterday Balance, commenting on media bias and Labour hypocrisy.

    When l heard Hipkins given airtime criticizing Luxons rental arrangement, as if he was doing something that had never happened before, and it was on TV as well, without any mention of Labour's recipients, l had to ask where is the objectivity and ethics of reporting?

    One reason l will miss TV3 news, compared to TV1, they didn't overdo the Te Reo force feed.

    One of those TV1 weather ladies lays it on like she's serving up boil up at a hui!

    Former Police Minister Stuart Nash wants laws targeting gang assets to go further - after, he says, he was blocked by his former Cabinet colleagues from doing so.

    Nash said he went “toe-to-toe” with Allan when Cabinet debated how far the changes should go at the start of last year, but lost when then Prime Minister Chris Hipkins sided with his Justice Minister.

    “She believed it was anti-Māori and I thought that was absolute rubbish, because this was not targeting Māori in any way, it was targeting gangs.

    “It doesn’t matter what ethnicity a gang member is, they need to be held to account by society,” Nash said.

    Remember Ginny Andersen's first comments as the #3 police minister in 1 year ?

    I hope any reforms would enable the recovery of my stolen new phone. After a couple of days it suddenly pinged at an address. I drove past the address, which looked like a gang pad. I was not prepared to approach it, so I rang the police, who said they would investigate. That was months ago and I have heard nothing since.

    If you are wondering where the Police are, drive down to the nearest psychiatric facility, and you will find 4, most likely female constables, 'attending' just 2 suicidal prospects bought in separately.
    2 constables will be in the reception area, while the other 2 will be in the Cafe.
    They will be there for 4 hours, so plenty of time for a chat.
    Don't do 5 km over the speed limit to get there though, or you will be pinged, in a different way to your phone!
    Their 2 Skodas will be parked there as well, possibly clocking up Wilson car parking fees, so not available for any crime attendance.

    Every news editor wields editorial control. We need to read news from several sources.

    The state broadcaster in the UK (The BBC) has been accused of editing out negative comments to do with Brexit from members of the public. Brexit is the main policy of the incumbent government.

    You can't compare Ministers with PM's.

    1. Unlike PM's, Ministers aren't provided with the free official residence of the Prime Minister in Wellington, Premier House.
    2. No other PM in the last 35 years has claimed the accomodation allowance, but Luxon thinks he's special & says he 'entitled' to the $52,000.
    3. At this time, Chris Luxon is demanding huge sacrifices from others, huge cut's across the Public Sector, no more "treating the taxpayer like an ATM Machine. "
    4. What sort of example is the PM setting, when saying the govt he's leading will go through govt spending "line by line" to eliminate any wastage.
    5. Premier House is perfectly fine, if he doesn't feel its up to the luxury standards he's used to, fine but don't expect the taxpayer to pay $52,000 for him to live in his own place.
    6. Obviously he was told urgently by his mentor John Key or some other advisor like Paula Bennet, he was making a huge mistake in the current Cost of Living Crisis with record number of families using Food Banks, he looked greedy & way out of touch & needed to pay the money back.
    7. Luxon's greedy foolishness was a gift to the opposition, he would have received the most shock & outrage from senior people within his own party.
    8. Luxon's constantly promoted himself as a prudent financial manager & he's the best leader to get the countries finances back in order.
    But what does he do? Gouges every dollar he can get because he's "entitled to it."
    Great example to set when you're asking everyone else to make sacrifices for the sake of the country!

    Yes, I'm the same .. always preferred the 3 News over than TV1/2

    and as for the TV1 weather ?

    I think Discovery/Warner have done themselves a huge disservice in what they have done
    which will likely come back to impact what they have left on their channels.

    Amputating pieces of the service or coverage with nothing equivalent to replace it usually doesn't go down well
    in the longer term for the operator.

    If they want guarantee of sinking viewer patronage of their channels then axing the News was sure way to do it

    There was likely some degree of respect for them taking on TV3, but start axing essential pieces the public may value, and see how long that respect continues

    Will they still be around in NZ in 3 years time or gone ?

    More disingenuous BS from BS. You know full well Hipkins had been given a report that Premier House needed work done (Post Cindy I might add). Luxon has inherited this.
    Cut with the crap BS.

    It seems character assassination is Labour's primary tactic given they are devoid of credibility themselves.

    First Ginny Andersen, Deputy Leader, doing a terrible smear job on Mark Mitchell and now Leader Hipkins (and BlueSkies) spreading BS about Luxon's accommodation.

    Beyond pathetic. If these two are the future of Labour the Nats can start planning for their second term now.

    Why are you so defensive of Luxon? Even senior people in National would have been appalled at his lack of judgement yet you're so staunchly defensive of him!
    People are losing their livelihoods in these cuts, & others will lose access to much needed Public services, that Luxon is demanding. There's a Cost of Living Crisis.
    Remember "Line by line" & "treating the public like a free ATM machine."

    If Premier House was good enough for Jacinda Ardern with a small child, it's definitely good enough for the 2 or 3 days a week Chris Luxon's in Wellington.
    Most old houses need work on them, Buckingham Palace needs work on it, doesn't mean to say it's unliveable!
