Tim Walker’s Medley II

I feel as though sequels are the way to go at the moment…

Alright. The new All Black jersey has just been released and offers few surprises; it’s all black. So it’s not just a clever name. Apparently more technology has gone in developing this tightly fitted blouse than ever before leaving me to question a couple of points: for how long have NASA been employed by the NZRFU and, is rugby still considered a sport of hard men?

The Invercargill aluminium smelter is having difficulties and, like Greece, might soon be beyond help. As southern New Zealand’s biggest employer and Meridian Energy’s biggest customer, losing operation of this Tiwai plant, like the financial collapse of Greece, would be a devastating outcome.

Hey, that Hayden Paddon’s a man to watch; in the sport of WRC this guy is Possum Bourne all over again. Already with a podium finish in Poland, now let’s see if he can finish first in Finland.

A Port of Otago worker suffered injuries when his straddle-crane toppled, falling some forty metres to the ground, leaving the machine’s cab crushed. I just hope the guy was wearing his hi-vis vest.

Sadly the subject of my ‘Naïve’ piece was unable to sell his story to a Balinese judge after all; he plans to appeal the fifteen year sentence but in doing so, brings back the possibility of a death sentence. Only his family seem to believe this 52-year-old Whhhanganui man when he tells them the I.7 kilograms of methamphetamine he was trying to shift through customs was for a girl he likes.

Finally, five people were stabbed last night in Johnsonville; one is dead. What is with people? Seriously. Just stop it.
