Thu 31st August 2006:

In an attempt to reduce the escalating child support arrears figure the IRD has resorted to making up its own rules. Don’t be surprised if you find the IRD behaving in an illegal manner.

Wed 23rd August 2006:

In amongst all the misery we endure, there are a few humourous points. Here’s one. After being beaten emotionally senseless by Yula I kind’ve decided being single was probably a better idea.

Was that well Dunne, well Dunne!, or well Dunne?

Fri 18th August 2006:

The NZ Labour party has been high jacked again, and the real insult to the party faithful this time is that it has been by an ideology that never had truth to offer as first casualty in a conflict constructed of subjective twaddle.

Pretend Minister Dunne.

It is important to expose Mr Dunne for the fraud that he is, and the manner in which our New Zealand Inland Revenue Department is being used.
