  1. Long may The Working group continue.
    It’d be nice however if those linked by phone could be schooled in what’s needed for better sound quality.
    I realise the days of the old analogue line, where sound quality and reliability was easier, are long gone, but some of Thomas’ comments needed a second take.

  2. Mathew hooten – you have angry small man syndrome – I fear for his mental health. It’s why you have been used and discarded by your National Party mates. I feel sorry for you.

    • 🙂 He does yep.
      He’s as funny as a fart to watch sometimes.
      Healthy debate is one thing. Screaming screeching blah blah blah in the pursuit of one upmanship is quite another. He’d be a real c**t to have to live with even after his relisation that all was not good in Chez Hooton.
      Fear not though. He might find religion or some other form of spiritual guidance in the not too distant.
      He’ll need something though PDQ before he becomes another irrelevant media casualty, reliant solely on rising house prices for his earn.

      Btw @ Martyn. Next time he gets out of hand on ‘The Working Group and’ and does his best to monopolise the narrative – just give him a slap will ya. If you can pay for the airfare, I’ll volunteer my services if you’d prefer

    • I take it back @Fuman:
      “He’d be a real c**t to have to live with”
      I ‘mis-spoke’
      I really meant He’d be a real prick to have to live with
