The Huddle


I was on The Huddle again tonight.

Larry Williams was away so they have drafted in Mike Yardley. With me was Josie Pagani.

Our topics were:

Labour’s proposed Man-Ban. (on the back of Sue Moroney on The Nation). How does Shearer neutralise this, put it to bed? Or does he?  

Smokefree resthomes – Elder abuse? Good or bad idea?  Also today, the Waitemata District Health Board has won a legal battle against mental health patients who wanted a hospital smoking ban lifted.

    Josie talks of “working new zealanders” as if they were some sort of weird introduced minority, that need to be occasionally entertained so Lab polticians can get their street cred. She’s wrong, the vast majority of kiwis are proud to work and if ignored by Labor will vote them to extinction.

    Josie in other media has shown she is opposed to this man-ban, but did not show as much yesterday… Josie and Shearer both will heve breathed a sigh of relief that Yardley was filling in whilst Larry was in transit to China….

  • Well. That was all over the place.

    Josie wants to smoke too much, drink too much, wear too much make up and be rude to people when she gets old?

    Why the fuck would she want to be Lianne Dalziel?
