In a world gone mad with political correctness and contrived offence-taking, this site is dedicated to fighting back.

Let’s rejoice in our diversity, poke fun at it when appropriate and mock those sad souls who seek regimentation for everyone to align with their views. Most of all, let’s laugh at life in all of its continuing craziness.

MIKE HOSKING

Broadcaster and columnist Mike Hosking slammed Auckland’s Council for allowing the farcical situation of traffic cones everywhere. He should get around more. The bloody things are clogging even the quietest streets everywhere in New Zealand.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN

Imagine the carry-on if Weinstein is either acquitted or alternatively, there’s a hung jury.  Yet on the evidence he could well be.  Here’s why.

He’s been charged with sexual molestation offences against two women.  The Judge allowed a large number of others to give evidence against him of their similar experiences to show he had form. They however, were all out of time to make a formal criminal complaint which raises the question why not at least one of them had done so?

CELL-PHONE SANITY

Two years ago at exactly 5pm on a Wednesday, I had cause to walk along the eastern side of Lambton Quay back to our offices, perhaps 1000 metres. I counted the office girls I confronted walking towards me, in total 67, every one of them head-down, staring at their phones.

DO FACTS COUNT?

Veteran columnist Rosemary McLeod whose writings I enjoy and mostly agree with, chimed in today re my Maihi libel case.

Specifically, she complained that numerous people are defamed on social media but can’t afford to do anything about it. “Access to justice is for the rich” she said, citing my case.
