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 »

The Huddle at 1740

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’s going to make a big difference to either the renters or the taxpayers.  Housing New Zealand will remain the country’s 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?

Merry Christmas – My Christmas Message

Whale Oil Blogger Cameron Slater Portrait Session

Last night Pete joked that I should do a Christmas message for all the readers and commenters.

It nagged away at me, damn you Pete…

But seriously folks I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

It has been a pretty tough year, It started really with a criminal act, the take down of the server and the hacks of my emails and social media.

Little did I know at the time what the left-wing had planned and executed.

It all unfolded as I was flying from Fiji to Seoul and when I landed at Incheon airport my phone went nuts.

I was overnighting there on my way to Israel via Paris. I put in place a plan and spoke with my friends and planned our response. I got 3 hours sleep and the next morning I was on a plane to Paris.

Can you imagine the stress I was under?

I didn’t have all the information, I had a deluge of emails and messages, plus there was a campaign underway to try and rack up my phone bills by people calling me and hanging up…there were literally hundreds of those.

Sitting on the plane to Paris was excruciating, totally out of contact, worrying about my friends who were under attack as well, and especially worrying about my family under siege by scumbag journalists doorstepping my wife and kids.

Same with the flight into Tel Aviv from Paris.

It was a rolling storm and I was half a world away and 9 hours behind in  a very strange land.

The next night there I was standing on a balcony in Tel Aviv with the city behind me talking on breakfast TV in New Zealand while it was midnight in Israel.    Read more »

The Huddle at 1740

It’s Monday and I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with Jock Anderson

Our topics will be:

  • First up we’ll cover off the ongoing siege in Sydney. Who knows where it will be at by the time we get to talk on the wireless….but PLENTY to discuss.
  • NZ First now taking the Labour party’s free GP visits for seniors. Sounds like Winston making a play to continue his troughing till well after he retires from parliament.
  • Issues Labour’s not sticking with. It’s dropping Maryan Street’s euthanasia bill. Not sure that’s a wise move.
