Why waste missiles in ocean testing when they could have been used against the gangs?

January 8, 2012

The buggers who run the NZ Herald seem to be conducting a campaign to sully the name of Rob Muldoon.

Bring back Rob Muldoon.

Yep. It sounds like a heresy.

But Rob would never have apologised to Whale Rider star Keisha Castle-Hughes – as John Key has done – for suggesting she “stick to acting” rather than debate climate change issues.

The only saving grace is that The Boss didn’t dive for the photo opportunity, as Alf previously had feared, by being pictured with the somewhat skinny lass.
