ANOTHER NEWLY INVENTED HUMAN RIGHT

AUT Associate Law Professor Khylee Quince (I didn’t make that name up although she may have done) has begun a fortnightly column in the always excellent Saturday Dominion-Post.

She opened the batting last week with a piece on school kids wearing hair styles contrary to school rules and gave us this pearl of creationism.

BANK ECONOMISTS – WRONG AGAIN

Last Saturday’s Dominion Post front page story was about the local red-hot housing market.

Lower Hutt’s biggest residential real estate firm’s boss, John Ross, was quoted saying he’d never seen a market with so much demand pressure. To various extents this is the case nation-wide.

Scarcely a day passes without our dying newspapers publishing something about Harry and Meghan. The items are invariably empty speculative nonsense.

Now I’m always happy to look at photos of Meghan although unfortunately they’re marred by including a ginger bearded bugger in the shot and no-one wants to look at that.
