    Hateful comments on Farrar’s blog? Pfft.

    • Nige.

      i think he said he “hates cold weather” when he is on holiday. Once.

    • Dave_1924

      Start a eligible debate over there and watch the language standards drop

  • Carl

    I hope the press gallery were on the look out for Iain Lees-Galloway with that booze sitting there.

  • HR

    Why should Andrew Little or anyone else thank Ms “resting [email protected]$th face” for anything?

    • ozbob68

      Well, the Press Gallery will never get thanked for their neutrality.

  • cows4me

    Well it’s probably safe to say Paddy and Candy well never be an item.

    • Chris EM

      Maybe they were.

      • Dave

        Now now, even Paddy has standards, and a better hairdresser!

  • Hard1

    Someone record that press gathering schmoozle. Now that would be dirty…

  • Armotur

    Ok! So Andrea is in charge if issuing te free drinks tonight. Well she may do a better job at that than her current effort to be a Journalist of respect.

  • Nechtan

    If the Herald have nominated Hager for NZer of the year it won’t just be Jesus crying.

    • MAWG

      Remember who Time had as their man of the year in 1938?

      • Nechtan

        Not personally, but yeah that turned out well.

    • Imogen B

      Who are the other nominees, and where do New Zealanders get to vote for their supreme being?

  • Timboh

    The Vance twit is revealing. Angry ant didn’t thank the press gallery.Thank the stars the press gallery were objective. Calling out Angry for his failure to acknowledge the paid hacks that inhabit the cosy gallery is a big fail for the left leaning hacks among the gallery. Still getting my head around how not mentioning the press gallery means he will have trouble getting a drink tonight. I’ve been out of circulation for a while so wonder if a ‘drink’ is code the insiders share?

  • kayaker

    Re the press gallery order don’t touch shot – I have to say they don’t have great taste in bubbles.

    • Agreed. And even the Dutch consider Heineken an inferior brand

      • Imogen B

        Bought some Heineken when beer can chicken became the rage because I usually buy beer in bottles which are nbg for the task.
        Tried to impale the chicken on the can and the darned thing collapsed causing a torrent of beer everywhere proving that with Heineken even the can is crappola!

    Greenpeace nutters destroy heritage site. Peru riled by Greenpeace stunt at Nazca lines http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_306481/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=ZRsjEWwW (from @AP)

    • who’stoblame

      mmhhhh…. you seem to be missing the point. It was done in, wait for it…………….”the public’s interest”

    • LabTested

      Unbelievable. Permanent damage to world famous heritage site.

      Hey Pete. This needs wider publicity.

  • Mark Harrison

    Ew. They only put second rate beer in green bottles.
