Whaleoil Sport Quiz "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Two sport quizzes today.  I thought Nige was running out of time, so I did one too.  We haven’t seen each other’s so here they are.  There may be overlaps because of that. After doing both, there is a poll to indicate which quiz was “better”.  This is the way to stick it to one […]

ON STUART NASH "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Stuart Nash, MP for Napier, is seen by some as one of the few 'good guys' in the Labour Party.   There is ongoing speculation that he is disillusioned with the little man's leadership and is being wooed by Winston First to jump ship.

Be that as it may Nash does his own credibility no good at all when, having given up on trying to land a blow on Judith Collins, he opens up on the Police's Eastern District Commander in the full and certain knowledge that she can't answer back.   The result ... a letter of complaint from National Police Headquarters to the Leader of the Labour Party who at least recognized that Nash was way out of line and told him to pull his head in and confine his battles to the debating chamber

Attacking someone who cannot fight back is cowardly.   To do that to a woman is cowardly2.   Never thought Nash was a coward but perhaps I'm going to have to rethink that opinion.

Sir Bob Jones on Colin Craig "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Bob goes where others fear to tread – criticism of Mr Colin Craig At times I worried for the judge and jury’s safety during the Williams-Craig libel trial.

Agitation for a cabinet reshuffle poor timing "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Matthew Hooton flies a kite For two years, the government has meandered. Ministers are housetrained. Their focus has turned to bureaucratic processes rather than policy outcomes. An unattractive arrogance has emerged. Mr Key, expected to reshuffle his team in the New Year, may opt to strike early. The top candidate to be sacked is obviously […]

The NZ Left: a dwindling, angry, self-reinforcing sect "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Rodney Hide provides some analysis What ails the left? They lack puff and policy. They were once vibrant, challenging and full of ideas. The right were the dreary, backward-looking ones. The left now suffer from closed minds and moral smugness. They are moribund and backward-looking. They run from ideas. Opposing philosophies distress them. They pillory […]

A rare time the Police Association and I are on the same page "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The Police Association says an overwhelming majority of frontline officers are against raising the youth court age. It follows calls to include 17-year-old offenders in the Youth Court, rather than facing a judge in the adult system.

When Lefties Take Over..... "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

........ the share price inevitably plunges and the business fails.

Take a look at The Herald, Fairfax, numerous leftist start ups in Australia and now the new media.

Of late both Facebook and Twitter have copped a pasting for censoring right of center political views and promoting those of the left.   Of course, all they have succeeded in so doing is driving away the large section of their clientele who are of the centre right.

Twitter is the latest to fall.

(Paywall)

From the Wall Street Journal:

"Twitter Inc. may be contemplating a future in the hands of an acquirer after a yearslong effort to sharpen its focus and ignite user growth has fallen short.
Salesforce.com Inc. is considering a takeover of the social media company, according to people familiar with the matter. The exploration is in early stages, one of the people said, and might not lead to a deal.
Shares of Twitter rose 21% to $22.62 on Friday after CNBC reported talks of a possible sale. Before Friday, the stock had fallen 30% over the past year and its market value was about $13 billion. Its all-time high of $40.7 billion came in December 2013."
