Rodney Hide responds to The Press and Martin van Beynen

Martin van Beynen wrote a hit piece on me in The Press yesterday.

In his considered opinion I deserve a smacking.

So errant cricketer Jesse Ryder wants to fight rogue blogger Cameron Slater in a charity punchup in Christchurch next month.

It looks like a match-up made in heaven – but for a few little issues.

The first is that Ryder has not that long ago been in hospital with what appears to be a major head trauma.

He maintains he has had medical clearance but I wonder what the medical staff who looked after him and restored him back to health think of him putting himself at needless risk.

Ryder, who has squandered his natural cricketing talents through ill-discipline, already seems short of a few brain cells and you have to wonder if this is the sort of risk he should be taking.

It may have escaped van Beynen’s attention that this is a charity boxing match, both Jesse and I are getting in the ring for Kidscan…not for anything else, although there is considerable personal physical benefits including rapid weightloss and seeking out a challenge. I’ve now¬†met Jesse and he has had as torrid a time with media as I have…we are kindred spirits as far as that goes. ¬†He’s a quiet and humble bloke…not at all that has been portrayed by media scum.

Slater’s participation is not much more than a public-relations stunt.

As one of the country’s most loathed and tainted figures, he may see the fight for charity as a way to make amends and show that deep down he is a brave and worthy bloke who is prepared to front up to the country and redeem himself through pugilism.

I would rather see him redeem himself by spending a year washing dishes in a Salvation Army refuge for the homeless but, I guess, with his good connections in business and elsewhere, he should raise a pretty penny for charity.

I’m on ZB with¬†Larry Williams to do¬†The Huddle with Mr du Plessis-Allan. ¬†I’ll be discussing things from the right, and Bazza¬†will try and show me why I’m wrong by fighting in Andrew Little’s corner.

Our topics will be:

  • The Sky City stoush over who‚Äôs going to fund the shortfall in the upgraded plans.
  • The outrage of the day over the Chatham Rock Phosphate application for mining on Chatham rise being declined. ¬†The company lost 95% of its value following the EPA decision. To say they‚Äôre upset¬†is an understatement.
  • …if time, one more, yet unknown topic.

From the passenger seat: Why Dotcom and Key are the same

via RNZ

via RNZ

by Pete

I was just thinking about readers¬†getting angry¬†with Cam¬†going on about Key re Sabin. But they don’t know why. The same happened with Dotcom. Dotcom¬†got hammered for a year and people begged Cam to leave him alone.

Readers¬†who don’t go “hang on, why would Whaleoil swim upstream here?” haven’t learned much from reading this blog.

The problem is, you too can see that Key hasn’t been the same since Oravida and Dirty Politics. ¬†He’s stuffing things up, and you don’t like it. ¬†It makes you nervous. Read more »

Super 8 – #WhaleRyder update – first week of training

Last Friday at the photo shoot for the Sunday Star-times I met my trainer, Henry Schuster for the first time.

Seemed like a good bastard…little did I know that the emphasis is on the second word.

He said turn up on Tuesday at the gym ready for the first day’s training.

I duly did as instructed and that is when the pain started.

Our focus right now is on fitness and core work…lots of bag work, lots of pad work, plus the core exercises. An hour and a half later I stumbled out of the gym sweating buckets hot as all hell and heading home. ¬† Read more »

It’s not Monday(!) and I’m on ZB with¬†Larry Williams to do¬†The Huddle with¬†corporate shill Matthew Hooton. ¬†I’ll be discussing things from the right, and Matthew will discuss it from a perspective he’s being asked to provide by someone, unless he’s off the clock.

Our topics will be:

  • Social housing policy. ¬†How this will make much difference at all? ¬†None of it feels like it‚Äôs going to make a big difference to either the renters or the taxpayers. ¬†Housing New Zealand will remain the country‚Äôs largest land lord.
  • Andrew Little saving the country through small business. ¬†Does¬†small business a: needs saving or b: will save Labour from their slide south in the polls? ¬†Not a lot of vote changing ideas from the new leader.
  • The Eleanor Catton outburst and tantrum at not being worshipped enough in NZ. ¬†Who appointed her as an ambassador? ¬†Did she appoint herself? ¬†¬†Typical nasty Green Party holier than thou type who believes she knows what everyone needs. ¬†Should¬†Canada claim her back?
