Is Al Sharpton even relevant any more?

Especially when he comes out attacking the white parents of a woman who has spent years masquerading as a black woman.

Among those rallying to support Spokane, Washington NAACP President Rachel Dolezal is self-proclaimed “civil rights activist” Al Sharpton, who had some harsh and incendiary words for Dolezal’s parents.   Read more »

CHRISTOPHER HOOPER/ Twitter REUNITED: Fiona Wilson with a photo taken of her 25 years ago

A poster of a topless woman unearthed in an Auckland flat has led to a chance reunion for a model 25 years later.

The print of the near-naked woman was left at a Grey Lynn house several years ago and has been passed down between flatmates before being put up for sale on Trade Me this week.

Its buyer was the very model herself – Fiona Wilson.

Emergency Face of the day

Emergency Face of the day

Yup that’s all folks.
Last night I couldn’t come up with a face of the day for today and with the wind howling outside, my bed and a hot cup of tea were calling my name. I would like to give this face some deep emotional or political meaning so that we could debate its merits but it is just what it is, my emergency face of the day for evenings like this one.

Maybe it represents the face we present to the world which is distinct from our real face. Think about the few people in our lives who really, truly know us well. What masks do we wear when we are out in public?

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that prohibits women from driving.

Many conservative Saudi women do not support loosening traditional gender roles and restrictions, on the grounds that Saudi Arabia is the closest thing to an “ideal and pure Islamic nation,” and under threat from “imported Western values”.

I wonder if today’s face of the day thinks that Western Values are currently under threat by ‘ Pure ‘ Islam  in the UK?

Whatever her personal views I just love this true story of how she was not afraid to offend King Abdullah.

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia died yesterday aged 90, and there has been some controversy over the tributes paid by world leaders to the ruler of a repressive regime that carries out public beheadings and bans women from driving.

Amid debate over whether flags should be flying at half-mast from government buildings, and Westminster Abbey, out of respect for Abdullah, it turns out, however, that our very own Queen had nailed the best way to handle the Saudi ruler many years ago.

This story, taken from former Saudi ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles’s memoir Ever the Diplomat, was widely shared on social media on Friday; mainly because it’s amazing.

It appears that wily old Winston Peters is partly responsible for the demise of the Labour party.

New Zealand First’s strong election result appears to have come at the expense of the Labour Party, preliminary results show.

Winston Peters’ party increased its vote more than any other on Saturday, jumping to 8.85 per cent from 6.59 per cent in 2011.  Read more »
