We’ve been cutting the heads off our enemies on Christmas day since before there was a Christmas day. Civilisation doesn’t mean being civil in battle either, it means being a biggest bastard there and making the bad people too shit scared to even look at us sideways. Suck it up.
You don’t like a kukri haircut then don’t fuck with Gurkahs. Give the man a medal for intiative and coolness under fire. I’d share a hole with him.
And as an aside to the wet pants author of this aleged bit of journalism from someone who has worked with the Ghurkahs, there is now and never been ANYTHING ceremonial about their knives. They are a working part of their kit just like their rifles.
Someone tell me where to send this guy his beer.
UPDATE: For absolutely NO reason whatsoever I’ll just casually mention that I have never recieved any sponsorship for my ancient artillery research from any Candaian Infantry regiment. Meanwhile the Cavalry have funded one of only 7 stone throwing ballistae in the world today. Just saying.

Labour Party leader Phil Goff is demanding stern punishment for under-fire MP Hone Harawira.
The attitudes behind his statements, not simply the language, have no place in New Zealand politics, he says.
He’s got to be held accountable for what he did, no excuses.
Phil Goff seems to be the only politician to have gone for the throat with the simple reality that the problem is not how Harawira said something but the essence of WHAT he said. It is racist and reflects an attitude incompatable with being an MP in this country.
Harawira probably picked a bad time to piss Goff off considering the aniversary.
Good work Phil.

Laws sugests paying them NOT to have kids and the left explodes.
As Laws points out we have allowed numerous kiwi kids to be murdered by their own families since Sue “Crazy Cat Lady” Bradford had her anti-smacking law forced on us and some needs to be done.
Bradford has resonded by calling Laws sugestion “draconian” – not sure how that works, she subverts the democratic process to have the most unpopular legislation in our hisotry forced on us and Laws is “draconian” for offering people a choice. You’re a pretty fucted up bitch Bradford.
Oh yeah she also said that no one ever claimed that her law would stop children being killed. You’re also a fucking liar Bradford, that is the bullshit line you tried to use to sell your draconian family destroying crap to us. And who the fuck are you to tell other people how to raise their kids anyway. It certainly doesn;t look like being one your strengths now does it.
Note to Simon Wood. Your headline is suficiently inaccurate to warrant a formal complaint as Laws sugested no such thing. I’m a smidge busy right now but i may get round to it next week some time.

Go read Michael Yon, taking neither bullshit nor prisoners from the pommie officer class.

Some of the Wellington Rifles chaps going bang… also twang and sometimes pop.
For the last time, it’s not my fault. I was born when I was born and my signature event the WMD happens on the weekend closest to that day. You want to blame someone take it up with my father.
So anyway a weekend of severe weather warnings, gale force winds and a water table that was evidently about 2 inches ABOVE ground level meant nothing to the harder elements of the New Zealand re-enactment community. Which is basically me and the Wellington Rifles and to be entirely technical having served in 7WnHB I AM a Wellington Rifle so, thurrrrpt to everyone else who stayed in bed that weekend.
And the prize for tough tentage goes to 22AD with their rendition of the Roman army campaigning in winter. Or: Ancient Stupidty I Have Done. I spent three days and two nights in Camp Marius and the tent never showed any sign of moving while the last two very expensive medieval tentsd left in the field got airborne. My academic observation at this point would be that if the Romans had invented gumboots they’d still be masters of the world.
But I’m not sure that the world is ready for an Emperor Marius Dagg.

Niwa sacks Jim Salinge!
Yay. Described by fawning Gorbulites as “one of New Zealand’s top climate scientists” Jim was in fact one of the worlds worst climate alarmists who used his position at the National institute of Water and Atmospheric Research to soapbox his extremist agenda.
No fail, door ass way out see you BYE.
About bloody time. In fact our most respected and “top” climatologist was Augie Auer who dies in June 2007 who helped found the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition in order to argue claims about man-made global warming. Causing the Met office to shit itself and run scared under the Clark regime. But them days is over. So in the spirit of the MSM using the late great Auguies death to attack his rational approach we here at HMWAH will use the bums rush of Soapbox Salinge to restate Auers position:
It is time to attack the myth of global warming.
Water vapour was responsible for 95 per cent of the greenhouse effect, an effect which was vital to keep the world warm. …If we didn’t have the greenhouse effect the planet would be at minus 18 deg C but because we do have the greenhouse effect it is plus 15 deg C, all the time. The other greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen dioxide, and various others including CFCs, contributed only five per cent of the effect, carbon dioxide being by far the greatest contributor at 3.6 per cent. It would be like trying to increase the temperature of bath tub full of water using one drop from an eye dropper.
You are invited to add your scorn and derision for politically driven “science” in the comments. You can sort out who gets what category for yourselves.
