    Smile This probably meant something to the reporter

    Changes to some Hamilton bus routes may indicate someone in the Waikato may have too much Waikato in them.
    . . . Between 9.30am and 2.30pm weekday services will be reduced to half-hourly to hourly. The last trips of the day will no longer operate.
    Direct from a report in Stuff, I gave up on the 1st sentence, but does the second one indicate a "sinking lid" policy? A cause for concern may be that the Stuffers are actually doing their best.

    What about this from the front page of Britain's Metro:

    At least two people have survived after a plane carrying more than 100 passengers and crew crashed, killing everyone on board
    Stuff isn't the only offender ...

    That is like the reports that the worlds oldest man/woman has died which is of course impossible as there is always an instant replacement for that position.

    Try this. Some is just mad stories, but some is unfortunate lack of editing.

    Send an email to the Prime Minister. She used to wrap fish and chips in a takeaway shop, and that vast commercial experience of hers may place her in poll position to answer such a question

    And that's been the problem for far too long, people with a commercial background running the country as if all it is, is a very large business, when that is only a part of the job and a rather mundane one as well.

    Money is not the be all and end all it is merely a lubricant to run the economy smoothly.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    I used to unwrap 'em outside takeaway joints, but I guess that would leave me overqualified for the sort of political misfits your electorate favours
