BBC Radio Comedy: Elvenquest S02 E06 Good vs Evil "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

ElvenQuest is a comic fantasy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 by Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto, and starring Stephen Mangan, Alistair McGowan, Darren Boyd, Kevin Eldon, Sophie Winkleman and Dave Lamb. The series takes place in the world of Lower Earth, a parody of Middle-earth from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. In Lower Earth, a band of warriors go forth to search for a mythical sword to save Lower Earth from the evil Lord Darkness (played by McGowan). In order to do so, they must find The Chosen One who will save Lower Earth. The Chosen One is Amis, a dog in the real world which belongs to a fantasy novelist called Sam Porter (played by Mangan) The first series was broadcast from 29 March to 3 June 2009 and the second from 18 November 2010. The third series began broadcasting from 17 October 2011. The fourth series began broadcasting 12 February 2013

Characters

Sam Porter (Stephen Mangan). An author of fantasy novels with a jaded attitude, especially towards his more fanatical fans. As the series opens his career and personal life are not going well.

Amis, the Chosen One (Dave Lamb). Originally Sams pet dog and best friend in the world, he transforms into a human in Lower Earth but retains canine traits and behaviours.

Vidar the Elf Lord, (Darren Boyd), last of a mighty family of Elf Lords, and the leader of the Questers, despite being somewhat dim. His name may be inspired by Varr, a god in Norse mythology associated with vengeance.

Penthiselea the Warrior Princess (Sophie Winkleman Series 13) (Ingrid Oliver Series 4) in silver breastplate armour and thigh-high boots, who has been promised to Vidar since childhood. Sam is very interested in her, but having been raised as a Warrior Princess she has no concept of relationships with men. Her name may be inspired by Penthesilea, a legendary Amazon warrior-queen.

Dean the Dwarf (Kevin Eldon), a mighty if diminutive warrior with unsavoury personal habits.

Lord Darkness (Alistair McGowan), Lord of Evil, whose efforts to dominate Lower Earth are frustrated by the Questers and his own staff of extremely dimwitted minions.

Kreech (Kevin Eldon), the Right Hand of Darkness, and only slightly less dimwitted than the other minions.

In Praise of DuoLingo "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

For a few months, Adolf has been teaching himself to speak Spanish.   (Well I AM retired.)

The vehicle for instruction is a website called Duolingo which teaches any of some thirty odd languages over the internet.  One of the good things about is is it is free.  Yes, you don't have to pay a  cent.

About fifteen years ago, I started to learn Spanish before travelling to Argentina for two weeks.  I used a programme called the Rosetta Stone which was on a CD.   The initial or basic phase was covered off on one CD which cost about $30.00 (from memory) but the next CD which took you through to some degree of fluency cost over $500 so I said 'to hell with it.'


Today, I'm quite a way advanced from that level but now I need to find someone who speaks Spanish so that I can go and chat over a coffee or a beer once a week.

Duolingo uses pictures, written word and spoken word with translations required both ways.  Best of all, if you think you have been wrongly marked wrong on a question you can report that to the operators.  I have been impressed by the speed with which they have come back with 'we now accept your translation.'

Further there are numerous fora where one can go and discuss linguistic points with other students, some of whom have been users for a very long time.   I see from Wiki there are over 2 million users and that Spanish is the most popular language.  BTW that's Central American Spanish, not Spanish Spanish but who cares?

I expect it will be a long long time before you can learn Te Reo on Duolingo.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S02 E09 Sex Games "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

.S02 E05 truth or Dare not found

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

NEVER POKE A SLEEPING BEAR. "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"




Mista Farrar is normally a placid kinda chap. He runs arguably the best political blog on the NZ scene with a very loose comments policy and enjoys a wide spectrum of opinion from his comentariat. It takes something serious to rouse him from a deceptive casual response to what is happening.
The total train wreck of "Me TU" Professor Jan Thomas, VC of Massey Uni in deciding unilaterally to ban Don Brash from campus where he was schedulled to speak to a "Politics Club" in a series from ex political figures. Hell most woould see the degree carrying  former governor of the reserve bank, a former National party leader and then The ACT party might just have some pearls of wisdom for young minds in a training regime.

Dont be bloody stupid, Ms Thomas, Australian trained, with a string of letters after her name has been told Gentleman Don is a "RACIST", so if it took Goofy to protect the snowflakes and curiosity shoppers in  Dorkland from two  Canadians who could infect feeble minds then Lady Jandiva must ride to a similar Drum beat and "Ban the Brash"

Clearly this miscalculation from the CEO of one of the nations main seats of learning has incensed Mista Farrar from his child minding , polling, advocating and informing busy life, to get into his armour annd join the crusade for free speech currently with Free Speech Coalition in the van.

Unfit to run a whelk stall: Ardern again has trouble with facts as she cocoons herself in an alternate reality "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Morning Report

https://adamsmith.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/mnr-20180807-0723-majority_of_business_believes_activity_will_improve_-_pm-128.mp3

The Treasury is warning the governments finances could be under threat. In its update on the economy for July, the agency says growth may be weaker than forecast in Mays budget. A slump in business sentiment, a cooling housing market and fears of a trade war are seen as risks to the economy and the tax take. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern discusses the details with Guyon Espiner.

Ardern demonstrates, again, one of this governments defining characteristics. That is the constant insistence that inconvenient truths are not truths, but misinformation, or the product of incompetent officials, bias from business etc. In this behaviour Ardern shows yet again how similar she is to Trump.

On Monday her response was a confused speech comprised of platitudes and nonsense under the banner of Trade For All. Yet again we saw the typical Ardern response to any issue set up a working group, promulgate a slogan, do nothing and wait for sycophantic media coverage. Barry Soper was very unimpressed with Arderns speech. It must have been bad then.

In his NZ Herald column today Matthew Hooton eloquently and scathingly comes to similar conclusions.

To sum up, Ardern is unfit, as the great English political epithet has it, to run a whelk stall

Prime Minister Jacinda Arderns return from maternity leave was supposed to start with an announcement to boost business confidence.

Instead of which she introduced Trade for All which is once again more hui and little doey.

Its a bit like putting the produce-laden cart before the lumbering Clydesdale as the Government tries to bring the public on board with free trade deals and what theyre calling a Trade for All agenda.

It seems a bit like the coalition cobbers trying to salve their guilt for opposing the likes of the old Trans-Pacific Partnership and now supporting it since its name has become more of a mouthful with Comprehensive Progressive added to its title. . . 

And just like all Government announcements without substance theyre setting up a board to advise on how to woo the great unwashed when it comes to trade. And as usual theyve appointed the chair with

BBC Radio Comedy: Elvenquest S02 E05 Emperor Jackie "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

ElvenQuest is a comic fantasy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 by Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto, and starring Stephen Mangan, Alistair McGowan, Darren Boyd, Kevin Eldon, Sophie Winkleman and Dave Lamb. The series takes place in the world of Lower Earth, a parody of Middle-earth from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. In Lower Earth, a band of warriors go forth to search for a mythical sword to save Lower Earth from the evil Lord Darkness (played by McGowan). In order to do so, they must find The Chosen One who will save Lower Earth. The Chosen One is Amis, a dog in the real world which belongs to a fantasy novelist called Sam Porter (played by Mangan) The first series was broadcast from 29 March to 3 June 2009 and the second from 18 November 2010. The third series began broadcasting from 17 October 2011. The fourth series began broadcasting 12 February 2013

Characters

Sam Porter (Stephen Mangan). An author of fantasy novels with a jaded attitude, especially towards his more fanatical fans. As the series opens his career and personal life are not going well.

Amis, the Chosen One (Dave Lamb). Originally Sams pet dog and best friend in the world, he transforms into a human in Lower Earth but retains canine traits and behaviours.

Vidar the Elf Lord, (Darren Boyd), last of a mighty family of Elf Lords, and the leader of the Questers, despite being somewhat dim. His name may be inspired by Varr, a god in Norse mythology associated with vengeance.

Penthiselea the Warrior Princess (Sophie Winkleman Series 13) (Ingrid Oliver Series 4) in silver breastplate armour and thigh-high boots, who has been promised to Vidar since childhood. Sam is very interested in her, but having been raised as a Warrior Princess she has no concept of relationships with men. Her name may be inspired by Penthesilea, a legendary Amazon warrior-queen.

Dean the Dwarf (Kevin Eldon), a mighty if diminutive warrior with unsavoury personal habits.

Lord Darkness (Alistair McGowan), Lord of Evil, whose efforts to dominate Lower Earth are frustrated by the Questers and his own staff of extremely dimwitted minions.

Kreech (Kevin Eldon), the Right Hand of Darkness, and only slightly less dimwitted than the other minions.

ADERN EXHIBITS HER NELSON'S EYE AND HAS NO OTHER CHOICE "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The decision by Prime Minister Ardern to turn her 'Nelsons Eye' to claims of conflict of interest in the investigation into the process leading to the appointment of Wally Haumaha as Deputy Police Commissioner is entirely understandable as it is wrong.

No matter that it was Winston First that announced the Inquiry.    No matter that he tasked one of his NZ First Ministers to oversee the Inquiry.   No matter that the Deputy Leader of NZ First and Haumaha are whanau (family) and come from the same marae.  No matter that Haumaha was (for a time) a candidate for NZ First in the 2005 election.   No matter that Winston Peters spoke at Haumaha's home marae at an event marking his (Haumaha's) promotion to Assistant Commissioner.

Conflict of Interest? ... old saying ... if it walks like a duck, has feathers and quacks then it probably is a duck.

Ardern had no option but to turn her Nelson's eye to the shenanigans.     She's stuk.   Winston Peters holds the cards and is playing her like a piano and there is nowt she can do about it.

Updated ... this just gets worse for the CoL.   Stuart Nash, Police Minister, has just revealed he has/had a relationship with 'Wally'.     Further, new allegations against Hauhama have now surfaced.   They relate to workplace bullying and  come from MoJ and Corrections personnel seconded to work with Haumaha at Police National HQ.    These allegations were never followed up on because those making the allegations were never told by their respective Ministries that the Police were seeking follow-up information.   Cock-up or cover-up?   At this stage I'll go with cock-up.

The Nash-Haumaha relationship is much more concerning.   We know that Deputy Commissioner Mike Clement warned the Police Commissioner against appointing Haumaha.    We also know that for senior appointments requiring ministerial sign-off the Minister (in this case the Prime Minister on the recommendation of the Police Minister) is presented with two names in order of preference.

The BIG question ... was Wally Haumaha number one or number two on the list.

If he were number two then we are getting into ministerial resignation territory.

JUST ANOTHER ATTACK ON FREE EXPRESSION "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"



Tragically the party of supremeVictoria Soviet leader Comrade Andrews latched onto an unfortunate segment involving Blair Cottrell to ban Skynews Australia from being broadcast on trains and stations of the state owned Victorian rail network.

Whether First secretary Danial Andrews took any notice of Goofy's ultimately successful banning of Southern and Molyneux from being heard, I have no idea but as another Socialist outfit using state power to silence critics and opposing views, it would seem the socialist tactic makes another raid on democracy.

Jacinta Allen a minister of the presideum who has put the ban in place has used a total fabrication of her support facts.
Sky News admitted the link to Blair Cottrell is ended and he wont feature again.
The Sky News did not run the item on a loop.
There has not been a massive withdrawal of advertising such kneejerk reaction is only three advertisers
Sky News News services and their wonderful stable of Op Ed hosts range from Andrew Bolt and Peta Credlin through Paul Murray, Nicholas Reese (worked with Gillard)  to ex labor Federal government minister Graeme Richardson are kept very seperate identities with seperate editorial management.
Comrade Andrews has an election on the horizon and has made this censorship move to prevent the party line being corrupted by truth and scrutiny from what is widely regarded as a highly reputable source of Information that savages Liberals and Labor with a refreshing honesty.

More highpowered journalism from NZ media "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Yesterday Adam noted TV Ones highpowered journalism.

Today he came across this gem on the Newshub site, this item was even more highpowered, after all the First Bloke was keeping his neighbours awake whilst he built a deck.

Clearly the intrepid journalists from Newshub braved countless deprivations so they could bring us, the poor suffering NZ masses, this breathless account of how Gayford built a deck at immense personal cost. He grew a beard.

Meanwhile there were massive concerns for the country, such as how many journalists would be needed to cover Arderns arrival at Wellington airport last Saturday. This dilemma was compounded by the need to ensure the maximum numbers of articles about Ardern, her baby and Gayford in the media each day. Clearly, we cannot let news interfere with the necessity of breathlessly covering the NZ equivalent of the Royal Family.

This was borne out by Ardern informing the world, even before the baby can speak, that she will be brought up speaking both Maori and English. Yet more highpowered journalism for our so brave media.

It would be much appreciated if we could return to less importan issues such as the economy, health, foreign policy and all those other irrelevant matters such as conflicts of interest in the Haumaha inquiry, oppression of free speech. You know all those trivial things, which according to NZs media we really dont need to know about.

Next week, no doubt, we will have a series on how Gayford plucks his nasal hairs.

But flying below the radar in all of this is that Joe Manchik, the Green Party candidate who received 1,127 votes and earned himself official 'spoiler' status, claims to be descended from aliens.   His facebook page records that his ancestors originally came from from a planet orbiting a star in the Pleiades star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus.

Ardern takes a Nelsonian view of NZ First Haumaha inquiry questions of conflict "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Clearly motherhood has not improved Arderns ability to recognise a problem.

Morning Report had this item (on Tuesday 07082018)

https://adamsmith.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/mnr-20180807-0645-no_problem_with_nz_first_mps_heading_haumaha_inquiry_-_pm-128.mp3

The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, says there are no conflicts of interest between New Zealand First Ministers or MPs and the inquiry into the process used to appoint the Deputy Police Commissioner Wally Haumaha. The investigation is to look at the process that led to Mr Haumaha being made deputy police commissioner despite comments he made defending police officers accused of rape in 2004. The New Zealand Herald reports that New Zealand Firsts Deputy leader, Fletcher Tabuteau is from the same iwi as Mr Haumaha and that Winston Peters spoke at a function on the marae to celebrate Mr Haumahas promotion. Nationals Chris Bishop says thats a clear conflict of interest, and the New Zealand First Minister, Tracey Martin who is appointing someone to lead the inquiry should step aside.

Maybe someone should have a conversation with Ms Ardern and explain in an absolutely positive way that when it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, then it 99.99% of the time is a duck.

The fact that she cannot accept there is a conflict suggests at a Nelsonian view and much more likely poor judgement and or a hold over Arderns coalition by Peters which has been kept secret.
