  1. Absolute gem, perfectly describes many like me who often opine with opinions on blog posts. It strikes me that many ultracrepdarians occupy the threads at Kiwiblog, Whaleoil, the Standard. It also applies to many MPs Russel Norman and Gareth Hughes immediately come to mind

    An absolute gem from Homepaddock and reminds Adam of so many of us who love to comment on blogs. Applies as well to some MPs eg Cunliffe, Norman and Hughes
