    Re: Journalistic Standards

    Ah, you're not wrong there, zqwerty. In these days of Covid lock downs and lock ups, isolation and insulation, all our healthy opinions need the relief of a safety valve. My cat just vanished in a...

    As my gardener friend would say, this goes from the super lime to the ranunculus. Or maybe not. Copperplate would be a lot more legible than what is taught to kids today. And I still walk on the...

    He's got a face like a run-over jam tin.

    She looks like a cross between a bull ***** and a window shutter.

    Me? I'm just a scallywag. But I was once a tiddler, knee-high to a chair.

    Ah the voice of Mayor Tim will echo down through the ages, even over the sound of his concrete mixer.

    Being the examiner would be a tough calling. But I can see that Roscoe would be the man for the job:D

    I think the computer simulation may have a virus.

    Nothing worked as well on me as a quick paddle on the bumski, now, sadly, criminalised.

    About time we started again, regardless of age, for rapists, those who deliberately inflict permanent injury and murderers. Or if that seems too harsh, put them on a chain gang for life, digging the...

    Good gracious, B.M. Now you have me sobbing in my nostalgic pretzels.

    Did you ever take a walk up the wooden hill to blanket bay?

    Or wonder how a jalopy could also be a bomb?

    So why don't the cyclists and pedestrians pay for their own bridge through user charges, just as motorists must for their roads?

    I have no problem with Maori retaining and using their culture and language if that is what they want to do.
