The Huddle at 1740

newstalkzb

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with Jock Anderson

Planned topics include:

  • No surprise for the first topic:  Colin Craig’s press conference.  I personally doubt we’ll get to the other topics, as I can give first hand reporting from the conference as well as the information I hold for Whaleoil, of course.  But if we do get past that, then:
  • The PPTA are blocking a teacher student from completing his degree because he’s worked at a Charter school.
  • Len’s being limp wristed with the POAL over the way the consent for their wharf extension was granted.   Clearly the court has said that the consent should not have been given without public notification – that would make the consent null and void I would have thought.
    Instead Len’s now saying they’re going to have a chat

10 Years today – A Decade of Dirt to celebrate

Whaleoil-First Post

Ten Years ago today I started Whale Oil Beef Hooked…I still remember the day and the first post…it was a photo of my desk, my computer, my keys, a Mont blanc pen, a pocket knife, the home phone and a Motorola phone.

The text of that first post read:

My Father in Law starts almost every sentence with this line….I think for this blog it is somewhat appropriate…

I am going to post mine and other like minded individuals views here, particularly views related to Auckland, Politics and New Zealand in general.

And speaking of which…

You know what pisses me off…when you arrive in Christchurch get in the cab and the cab driver asks you where you are from….You just know that when you reply Auckland you are going to cop it….and I sure did…every JAFA comment in the world that I have heard a hundred times came out. This guy was seriously lucky to get paid let alone leave the cab without a serious kicking.

But seriously, all you South Islanders, understand this. We the people of Auckland don’t care what you think about us, Auckland or anything. Seriously, we don’t care. We have more to do with our lives than live in hope that you get a real live Aucklander in the cab to so how jealous, petty and pathetic you all are. Get a life…no I mean a real one not a “sky is red and black” life.

Christchurch has a similar problem to Australia…lovely place to visit, shame about the inhabitants.

Ok, Ok, I had a nice long weekend in Christchurch, It was wonderful to look through closed doors and windows of shops closed on Saturday….quaint, very quaint.

The Huddle at 1740

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with Josie Pagani.

Planned topics include:

  • No surprise for the first topic:  John Key’s Tax
  • Next, something about being a Maori precluding you from home ownership.  Yeah, I know.  Listen, and I’ll try to understand and explain at the same time.
  • Finally, health troughers wants dairies to stop selling soft drinks and candy.  Why are supermarkets – or in fact, any other businesses exempt?

The Huddle at 1740

newstalkzb

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with the lovely leftie Josie Pagani who will present the right of the left viewpoint in between taking hurried breaths and run-on sentences.

Planned topics include:

  • Firstly we’ve got the howling of conflict of interest being bandied around over a cabinet minister’s brother being charged with indecency charges against children.
  • Then we’ve had the Team New Zealand chairman resign from the job. It’s going to be a numbers game with the number of people with any credibility leaving in rapid succession.  Dare I say it?  Rats are deserting a sinking ship.
  • What’s up with boxing?  It allows Mayweather to continue fighting when he’s a misogynist wife beater.  No wonder senior National Party figures don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

The pilgrimage begins

Dad and I flew from Dubai after spending a week with my brother and his family. It was good to see my niece again. The last time was 2013.

We flew up on an Emirates Boeing 777. Again we scored an upgrade. The flight was about four and half hours and was packed with Kiwis and Aussies. The first officer on the flight was an Aussie and I had a chat with him for an half an hour. He was jealous as all hell, his great father fought at Gallipoli and he wanted to go but missed out on the ballot.

We arrived in Istanbul, and the temperature drop from 30 plus degrees to just 11 degrees was a bit of a shock.    Read more »

A reader emails Jim Hubbard

Jim Hubbard penned a disgusting cartoon about me and my travels to Gallipoli to honour my great-grandfather Harry Crozier.

A reader was incensed and emailed him.    Read more »

Oh what the hell have I done to myself this time…

Only a few hours to go… squeaky bum time…

Thank you all for your support.  I hope you’ll enjoy the fight, and let’s hope we all enjoy the result as well!

With the TAB running at about $1.06 to $8.00, nobody is expecting me to lay a glove on Jesse.  Even the promoters appear to discount the possibility.  I’d like to think they are the latest in a long line of people that continue to underestimate me.   Let’s see.
