… these are the sort of words Michael Laws would be using if the decision to spell Whanganui incorrectly had been endorsed by the NZ Geographic Board, so I feel justified in using similar language given that the decision has gone my way.

As I have argued at great length, this is a good decision. I’ll work through the details of the submissions when I get time, hopefully tonight.

    As opposed to the words he’s actually losing because he lost, which include “racist” and “anti-democratic.” F**k that man is an ass.

    Also – the verification words for me were “Shorefront bordello.” Awesome.

    However it’s not hard to see the Minister deciding that both spellings can be used.

    The decision was unsurprising.
