Around and About


Enjoyed this piece by David Beatson on Mt Albert over at Pundit. He likens Mt Albert as being closest place to hell at present.

At Tumeke! Tim Selwyn commences battle against Melissa Lee with a post which some might see as guaranteed to whip up the traditional NZ xenophobia against anyone not born here, whilst cloaking it with insinuations about Crosby Textor, the reference to scripted lines. A not very subtle sub-text of ‘yellow peril’ runs through the post.

Anti-Dismal has some welcome news regarding attitudes to free trade in the USA. Let us hope Obama and his Trade Representative are listening.

Matt Nolan at TVHE has some data on the size of the NZ stimulus. This debunks some of the ill informed ‘information’ propounded by The Standard and No Right Turn. The thread is well wroth a look.

Keeping Stock opines on Chris Hipkins, the political hack for Rimutaka electorate.

Andrew Geddis at Pundit discusses the issue of purchase advisers. Adam thinks Mr Geddis was not entirely sure whether they are entirely legitimate as Bill English has established them. It would be interesting to know what he makes of Simon Upton’s comments in his DomPost opinion piece yesterday. Further how would Mr Geddis suggest a Minister deal with a public service clearly of an entitlements mindset and no apparent focus on value for money.

MacDoctor suggests caution over suggestions of more money for Pharmacists to carry out work they may not be equipped to do.

    You might very well think that, but I could not possibly comment

    Tim Selwyn xenophobic eh? Would that perchance be the same Tim Selwyn from Tumeke who wants Israel “wiped off the map”? And that indeed is a direct quote from our mutual friend Mr Selwyn. Should a hypocrisy alert be issued?
