    Men who should be saying ‘sorry’ to the women of NZ include Maurice Williamson who tried to influence the police in the case of wife beater Mr Liu and the foriegn ministry official who let an accused attempted rapist leave the country. An apology to NZ women would also be appropriate from the National party who didn’t bother to talk to womens refuge when making policy on domestic violence.


  2. Those who call women who play netball, “girls”.

    Come on, get over that one Robert Guyton. Most netballers & their women coaches call themselves “girls”. Rugby players are “our boys”
    Please don’t de-rail an important topic by being petty.
    Mr Liu has pleaded guilty to assault and yet the National party and the NZ Herald gloss over that and gleefully quote any old thing he says.
    Why, why did National not talk to womens refuge when making policy on domestic violence?

    Crikey! I’ve been chastized by myself!
    Fair call, self.
    How about this; “What you feed your miind, determines your appetite” – Ele’s message for the day has me wondering what reading Whaleoil would do to one’s appetite.
    Or how about this? Those people who are lashing David Cunliffe for his comment are the same people who think Tony Veitch is okay now.


  5. JarrodGilbertNZ: If nothing else, David Parker’s line is a cracker: “A rising tide of economic growth should lift all boats, not just the super yachts.”


  6. JArmstrongNZH: At Labour Congress. David Parker speech an absolute cracker. Call to arms on fairness and inequality just what delegates wanted to hear.


  7. samuelmann: #TeamKey recipe for encouraging youth into science: cut post-grad funding, call science mumbo-jumbo & scientists extremists. @stevenljoyce


  8. felixmarwick: Labour signalling it’d introduce tougher water quality rules. Parker “intensified agriculture isn’t permitted as of right .. ” TBC

    Such a good move and so little made of it in the media. Why?

    This will benefit some schools way more than Labour’s latest effort.


  10. LewSOS: This “David Cunliffe” in the Herald sounds like a really top-drawer bloke. Why haven’t we ever heard about him before?
