Quotes

"It's a new low if John Key is now saying it's ok for a foreign government to execute New Zealanders offshore if they have beliefs about those citizens holding views that the US government doesn't like" Dr Norman says
"Late last year I was advised it was highly likely he had been killed; it took some time to absolutely confirm that through DNA."
"We want to make sure that we get our policies into Parliament and that our voters are not wasting their vote. So we want to get rid of this five percent threshold and we want to do that with alliances with other parties and politicians."
"We have a 'people's choice' section: So far, Talent2, which is responsible for the Novapay payroll system, is streets ahead. It's a classic example of a foreign corporation causing utter strife for New Zealanders" Horton said
