Let’s nail my colours to the wall.
Wellington: I’ll work with anyone you elect, it’s your choice. But with regards to the Mayoral race, I back Jack, and please, I urge you to give him due consideration.
Why do I Back Jack 2013? Jack Yan has an amazing mix of communication skills, social conscience and business acumen. Please, give him a try. Don’t let his astonishing intellect or useful ability to speak to dignitaries from a vast number of countries in their own languages put you off.
No, he isn’t acting like Muldoon. Muldoon believed resolutely in tackling unemployment, the state owning assets, and taking the lead in investing in hydroelectricty and other sources of generation.
You can’t bank on the Wales Wow, incredibly dumb move, Westpac. I never opted in to your spam lists, and now I ﬁnd you have done so for me, in every category. What the heck? I know I never opted in, because I usually ask for this stuff in plain text. Considering your ﬁrst-ever spam arrived today, and one of my companies became your customer in 2006, I’m sure that this decision to spam people was a recent move on your part.
Why would I ask for information on products I don’t have with you, or, for that matter, rewards?
I’ve deleted my email address from your system as well, and, yes, I do feel strongly enough about this that I’ll consider closing my accounts.
I can’t believe I wasted my 5,000th Tumblr post on you, but, there you have it.
Clearly, computers and banks do not mix—remember, cheques took a day to clear in the mid- to late-1970s, and they take ﬁve to seven days now. Now I ﬁnd a foreign bank unable to grasp some basic netiquette.
Wellington isn’t dying—John Key ﬂew into Wellington Airport and misinterpreted what ‘Wellington Terminal’ meant.
Thirty years later Am I the only one who ﬁnds Volkswagen’s advertising touting stop–start as a point of difference a little strange? VW, after all, has had Formel E since the early 1980s, and some of those models had stop–start.
