Thanks guys , for an enthralling year . You've all worked hard to give us a place to go to vent . Having said that and I quote ' Nothing satisfies us on Christmas Eve but to hear each other tell authentic anecdotes about specters . It is a genial , festive season , and we love to muse upon graves , and dead bodies , and murder , and blood . ' Jerome K. Jerome . Thus , to all you lying , greedy , soulless money lending filth ! To you ! You loan shark . To you ! The bankster ! And you ! Especially you ! The politician ! Thank you ! Without you , none of this would be necessary ! And my hope is that we , us normal human beings spare a moment to enjoy what our imaginations might conjure up tonight . Of blood and graves and murder !

Agree..your analysis of the mainstream media's response to the Chch earthquake - credit where it's due. Agree your comment that the msm resisted pressure from advertisers to hawk their wares.
.....so what does that say about corporate NZ?
draw your own conclusions but it does suggest that the sleepy hobbits have signed up for exactly this agenda over the next electoral cycle......and the signs are now emerging: the impending demise of TVNZ7...the collapse of Stratos the most obvious signs.
Tuff shit NZ....suck on that sav and don't moan when you start hitting the skids....you deserve facism

oh....and an after thought: Bomber - "we just don't give a shit about beneficiaries........." (or words to that effect).... Phoebe and Slewyn's response "I hope not" (or words to that effect).
Hope on fellas! Sleepy Hobbits are sleepy hobbits because theyve swallowed that aspirational-don't-class-me-alongside-the-derelict narrative.
When they wake up at rock bottom and realise they've been fucked over - the only good thing will be the anger that's directed where it should be. I wonder whether there is a Labour Party (or oppostion parties including the "Murries" I once voted for) realise that - I doubt it. There's a Turiana who has a genuine concern for the downtrodden but who can;t quite put her own ego and bitterness behind her, and a Pita - loyal servant and 'stay-staunch' follower of his Turi mumsy that should have had a kick in the balls a long long time ago. What the fuck was he thinking!!! (self)!
What the fuck was SHE thinking?: that fucking bitch Helen! (ffs GET OVER IT!); we hold the balance of power (LET's DEVISE SOME RHETORIC like IT's BETTER TO BE INSIDE THE TENT PISSING OUT...etc. etc....perhaps bring in a little human-type-stories like the whanau to reinforce the agenda - not unlike Paula Benet); and so on.
Really what the consequences have been amount to justification for HRT!

Tim - nothing better illustrates the crass nature of our current society, than the canning of TVNZ7 and it's replacement with a shopping channel.

We have seen the future and it is bland, dumbed-down, endless consumerism - not the stirring optimism of 1960s "Star Trek".
