Did you mean Ngauranga Gorge?

Where is that again?

Horrid journalists must never go south of the Bombay Hills, certainly not driving to Wellington where everybody knows SH1 goes down the Ngauranga Gorge.

Apparently they’ve renamed it to the Ngaraunga Gorge – no matter the facts aren’t that important.

    “She withdrew the bill faring it would be a distraction….”
    “faring”? What the fuck is “faring” you dumb shit?

      Bloggers don’t hold themselves out to be “decent journalists, trained and skilled”.

      BTW it’s what you do if you’re a sailor – sea-faring and all that.

    Decent journalists, trained and skilled. Muppets. It will probably be corrected by lunchtime.

    Stuff continued their awesomeness in journalism posting a headline before lunch about the Navy guy being court-martialled that lead with “Army Affair,…” Maybe they need a lesson along the lines of “The Navy are the ones with the boats” Someone needs to sack their editor.
