    Media reports are now coming out of Italy on a possible major Vatican scandal described as a “breach of the sixth and seven commandments” (really, it was in SMH).

    It may become known as the bonking and banking scandal.

    • I like to think the anti-Christ has been in the Vatican all this time, and the next pope won’t be one. But then I’m an optimist.

      • PlanetOrphan

        Excommunicate all Roman Catholics, Disband the Roman Catholic Church.
        Raise the Vatican to the Ground! …. They are the Bloody Witches.

        Tell everyone to open their eyes and look out for themselves.

    • Hehe. Hi Red.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Is that the best you can come up with Red.

    • Ronnie Chow

      That reminds me of the mongrel mob using the Nazi symbol . I didn’t know the mob let in Aryan skinheads , Red.

    Interesting headline in todays NBR website.”Green Party preparing for Government”WTF.

      Russel Norman the Aussie wetback commie,who has been in NZ five minutes,under MMP system he could be our next, or is it are first commie PM.Even worse his co leader Turei was at one time 28 on the list with theMcgillycuddy Serious Party.She then graduated to the Aotearoa Marijuana Party.She didnt find it there ,and moved on to the RED/”green Party” which afforded her the chance to be the deputy prime minister of NZ. Trust MMP to queer the pitch,and at the same time destroy the way of life of millions of NZs for generations to come,by some people who cant even win an electorate seat,FFS.

      • Bunswalla

        Yes and now we know why he left Aussie to set up camp here. Just this week the Labour Party there gave the greenies a huge serve and the arse card. Strangely the aussies seem less enamoured by the greens than we are.

        • Mr_Blobby

          Strangely they are doing better than us.

    • cows4me

      Those clowns on the mushrooms again Phar Lap?

    • Patrick

      Anyone who even considers voting for the NZ Commie party aka the Greens deserves what will come their way.
      The rest of NZ may as well pack their bags & look for a job in Aus.

        Unfortunately they will all be stoned and we will all be paying.

    I see George Galloway has had another tantrum recently and exposed his contempt for particular minorities (walking out of a debate because of an Israeli being present).

    It’s a bit unfortunate his face would look quite at home as a pig on a roasting spit (perhaps Fairfax ought to use a more flattering pic of him rather than the one in today’s DomPost, as this was the first thing that came to mind)!

    • Patrick

      He as been nicely fattened living off the public tit for decades, all the while contributing naff all to the British taxpayer. Oh & doing a few “cashies” for Saddam Hussein helped as well. Lying corrupt snivelling racist twat.

    • Ronnie Chow

      Galloway was spot on about Iraq , however .

    • Patrick

      A few quotes from Gorgeous George as he is “fondly” known:

      If you are asking did I support the Soviet Union, yes I did
      “I am on the anti-imperialist left.” The Stalinist left?

      the disappearance of the Soviet Union is the biggest catastrophe of my life

      people who invaded and destroyed Iraq and have murdered more than a
      million Iraqi people by sanctions and war will burn in Hell in the
      hell-fires, and their name in history will be branded as killers and war
      criminals for all time

      Bush, and Blair, and the prime minister of Japan, and Berlusconi, these
      people are criminals, and they are responsible for mass murder in the
      world, for the war, and for the occupation, through their support for
      Israel, and through their support for a globalized capitalist economic
      system, which is the biggest killer the world has ever known. It has
      killed far more people than Adolf Hitler. It has killed far more people
      George Bush. The economic system which these people support, which
      leaves most of the people in the world hungry, and without clean water
      to drink

      One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. You are totally
      wrong in saying that in most people’s eyes Hezbollah are terrorists. In
      most people’s eyes Israel is a terrorist state. It’s the fact that you
      cannot comprehend that fact that leads to bias that runs through all of
      your reporting and every question that you’ve asked me in this interview

  • I see the PPTA union mouthpiece is now threatening to sue me for telling the truth about Kate Shuttleworth.

    • Mr_Blobby

      All piss and hot air. Why would the cockroaches want to have a bit of sunlight shine on them.

    • LesleyNZ

      Really? How stupid but not surprising. It is the PPTA who should be sued by the parents who have been let down by teachers who are failing to teach their children basic maths.
      Govt eyes back to basics in maths-

    First they change the recipe and – now they want to be “genderless”? Appears both Girls Guides and their biscuits have changed. No more Girl Guide biscuits for me then – if this is true. “The Girl Scouts are preparing to celebrate “World Thinking Day” in February. Parents, hold on to your pocketbooks.On “World Thinking Day,” Scouts will earn a badge for thinking about hunger or talking to a Peace Corps volunteer. They also will collect money and send it to the creator of World Thinking Day, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). A noted player on the international stage, WAGGGS is an ardent advocate for controversial social policies including abortion and sex rights for children. Girl Scouts USA is its single largest organizational funder. In fact, every American girl who joins a Girl Scout troop at her neighborhood church is made a de facto member of this radical group……….

    What on earth is this woman trying to say? No doubt she is the result of our dumbed down education system. She should apply for the vacant job at TV1’s “Seven Sharp”.

    I had a call from an (Indian) marketing call centre yesterday inviting/begging me to subscribe to the Sunday Star Times for half-price. I declined (politely, it is not the hard-working call-centre worker’s fault). They must be getting pretty desperate. Their on-line version has been deep-sixed. The paper is in rapid decline, not least because they adopted a sloppy enthusiasm for the Left, when most loyal news-seekers are Right, and older. What a dumb lot. TVNZ is suffering from the same delusions & incompetence. At least the SST has a Board with money in the game, maybe they will intervene?

    Gareth must have done the Hurricanes team talk tonight. Phoenix tomorrow. Chin up Wellington.
