Why, just why? Assholes. Arnie is no Ilya Kuriachan. Actually, he guarantees this will be a flop, he is cursed.
What total bullshit. He is not a journalist, he is a ten dollar sex worker. And to drag Louis Kahn into this is just wrong. Kahn worked for years on Jatiyo Sangsad Bhaban, (which is what it is called), for little money as he needed his vision to be realized. Has Hoskings ever done anything for free?
Disclosure statement: Mike Hosking has had a commercial relationship with SkyCity in the past and still has one with the National Party.
But I come from the Louis Kahn school of thinking. Kahn, by the way, was a genius, and one of the world’s great architects. Look up his work: It’s worth it.
The Trenton Bath House, the Uni at La Hoya, the Bangladesh Parliament, he built beautiful and he built to last. It cost more than the others but it was money well spent.
This is what Key is arguing. If the Government has to cough up to avoid ugly then he’ll do it and good on him.
Malaysia’s highest court has upheld a sodomy conviction against the country’s main opposition leader.
Anwar Ibrahim, the leader of the People’s Justice Party and former Deputy Prime Minister – was accused of having sex with a male aide in 2008.
The politician was acquitted by the high court in 2012, but was re-tried last year and found guilty. The Federal Court has this week upheld the conviction against him, rejecting his appeal.
Mr Ibrahim had remained as opposition leader on bail while the case was being argued – but will now serve a five-year prison sentence.
He said: “I maintain my innocence. This to me is a fabrication coming from a political conspiracy to stop my political career.”
The UK’s Minister for Asia, Hugo Swire, said: “I am deeply concerned by the imprisonment of Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
“His case raises worrying questions about the independence of the judiciary and rule of law in Malaysia.
