    Kiwi Karkers

    New Zealand may be included in the Australian constitution, but despite his close mateship with Malcolm Turnbull, I'm certain our former PM John Key will agree that we pursue a thoroughly independent set of policies, despite the huge Kiwi diaspora in the East of the West Island. As such, I thought it was about due to have a new thread for us. I mean, no self-respecting Kiwi says 'Hooroo mate'. It's all 'chur bro' and 'aaaah, she'll be right' and 'oi'll hive sex scoops uvv fush and chups, cuz' So, without further ado, here's some of the NZ great and good to keep an eye on: Former Prime Ministers Geoffrey Palmer QC, 33rd PM (21 April 1942) Mike Moore, 34th PM (28 January 1949) Jim Bolger, 35th PM (31 May 1935) Dame Jenny Shipley, 36th PM (4 February 1952) Helen Clark, 37th PM (26 February 1950) Sir John Key, 38th PM (9 August 1961) Bill English, 39th PM (30 December 1961) Governor-Generals Dame Catherine Tizard, 16th GG (4 April 1931) Sir Michael Hardie-Boys, 17th GG (6 October 1931) Dame Silvia Cartwright, 18th GG (7 November 1943) Sir Anand Satyanand, 19th GG (22 July 1944) Sir Jerry Mateparae, 20th GG (14 November 1954) Dame Patsy Reddy, 21st GG (17 May 1954) Order of NZ Dame Miriam Bell, Women's welfare campaigner (14 June 1924) Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Opera Singer (6 March 1944) Sir Miles Warren, Architect (1929) Jim Bolger, 35th PM (31 May 1935) Ken Douglas, Trade unionist (15 November 1935) Mike Moore, 34th PM (28 January 1949) Cardinal Tom Williams, Emeritus Catholic Archbishop of Wellington (20 March 1930) Jonathan Hunt, Former Speaker (2 December 1938) Lloyd Geering, Heretic & theologian (26 February 1918) Sir Kenneth Keith, Judge (19 November 1937) Sir Don McKinnon, Former Commonwealth Sec-Gen (27 February 1939) Sir Murray Halberg, Olympic Runner (7 July 1933) Helen Clark, 37th PM (26 February 1950) Sir Bob Charles, Golfer (14 March 1936) Albert Wendt, Writer (27 August 1939) Sir Ron Carter, Engineering Businessman (17 June 1935) Sir Peter Gluckman, Chief Science Advisor (1949) Richie McCaw, Master of the Dark Arts (31 December 1980) Joy Cowley, Writer (7 August 1936) Michael Duffy, Former Attorney General of Australia (2 March 1938) Dame Catherine Tizard, 16th GG (4 April 1931) Sir Brian Lochore, Rugby legend (3 September 1940) CK Stead, Author (17 October 1932) The Duke of Edinburgh, Loon (10 June 1921) Dame Margaret Bazley, Public Servant (23 January 1938) Sir Peter Jackson, Hobbit (31 October 1961) Dame Malvina Major, Opera Singer & Retirement Home (28 January 1943) Sir Shridath Ramphal, Former Commonwealth Sec-Gen (3 October 1928) Rugby Captains Kieran Read (26 October 1985) Richie McCaw, Master of the Dark Arts (31 December 1980) Tana Umaga (27 May 1973) Reuben Thorne (2 January 1975) Anton Oliver (9 September 1975) Todd Blackadder (20 September 1971) Taine Randall (5 November 1974) Sean Fitzpatrick (4 June 1963) Gary Whetton (15 December 1959) Wayne 'Buck' Shelford (13 December 1957) David Kirk (5 October 1960) Andy Dalton (16 November 1951) Graham Mourie (8 September 1952) Tane Norton (30 March 1942) Andy Leslie (10 November 1944) Ian Kirkpatrick (24 May 1946) Sir Brian Lochore (3 September 1940) Cricket Captains John R Reid (3 June 1928) Barry Sinclair (23 October 1936) Graham Dowling (4 March 1937) Glenn Turner (26 May 1947) Mark Burgess (17 July 1944) Geoff Howarth (29 March 1951)Dan Jeremy Coney (21 June 1952) Jeff Crowe (14 September 1958) John Wright (5 July 1954) Ken Rutherford (26 October 1965) Lee Germon (4 November 1968) Stephen Fleming (1 April 1973) Daniel Vettori (27 January 1979) Ross Taylor (8 March 1984) Brendan McCullum (27 September 1981) Kane Williamson (8 August 1990) Oscar Winners Anna Paquin, The Piano (24 July 1982) Russell Crowe, Gladiator (7 April 1964) Jamie Selkirk, Return of the King () Sir Richard Taylor, Return of the King, Fellowship of the Ring & King Kong () Ngila Dickson, Return of the King (1958) Sir Peter Jackson, Return of the King (31 October 1961) John Gilbert, Hacksaw Ridge () Fran Walsh, Return of the King (10 January 1959) Bret McKenzie, The Muppets (29 June 1976) Grant Major, Return of the King (1955) Dan Hennah, Return of the King () Kim Sinclair, Avatar (10 July 1954) James Lucas, The Phone Call () Michael Hedges, Return of the King & King Kong () Hammond Peek, Return of the King & King Kong () Christian Rivers, King Kong (1974) Dan Lemmon, The Jungle Book () Dame Jane Campion, The Piano (30 April 1954) Philippa Boyens, Return of the King () Booker Prize Keri Hulme, The Bone People (Winner) (9 March 1947) Eleanor Catton, The Luminaries (Winner) (24 September 1985) Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip (Nominee) (23 March 1955) Olympic Gold Medallists [s]Yvette Williams, Women’s Long Jump, 1952 Helsinki (25 April 1929)[/s] Peter Snell, Men’s 800 Metres, 1960 Rome (17 December 1938) Men’s 800 Metres, 1964 Tokyo Men’s 1500 Metres, 1964 Tokyo Murray Halberg Men’s 5000 Metres, 1960 Rome (7 July 1933) Earle Wells, Sailing -

  3. The ANZAC List belatedly makes a return. Thanks to all those that contributed to the list. I put this together on Friday,, but have been out and only got round to posting today. In the meantime, Mike Moore died this morning so that's theoretically a first hit. If anyone is concerned about the fact I haven't posted the list before he's scuttled off this mortal coil, then I'll bring in a sub, but he was a returner from last year and I've picked him for DDP teams for a number of years. 25 people return from last year (last year's position in Brackets) and 25 newbies on the list.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    I'd think that a theme team has to reasonably be some kind of small minority to be picking from. Allowing a team that can be picked from ~50% of the world's population doesn't seem particularly on. But, it depends whether the theme team league is a "fun" thing or a competitive thing. Let's get statistical and weight teams based on the percentage of the overall population that their team consists of. Therefore, a hit in the "all male" or "all woman" team might be weighted at 0.5 based on women/men being approx. 50% of the population. Then, on the other hand, selecting a team from the cast and crew of the 70s film for masochistic children, Watership Down (like my better half did a couple of years back) would afford each hit a weighting of ~100/7.5bn. So, if Ray Merrin had received a QO, then he'd have been worth the standard number of points divided by (100/7.5x10^9) which would have meant Merrin would have scored ~3*10^8 points for her (300,000,000) compared to only 8 points for the hypothetical person selecting Merrin for their all male theme team. I think we can all agree that the simplicity and satisfaction in appropriately awarding niche teams would go a long way towards making the Theme Team League a more highly respected competition.

    Nature In Your Backyard

    Mainly sparrows, blackbirds, silvereyes, the occasional tui. Used to get a few hedgehogs, but the big DOC200 rat trap seems to have taken them all out. Shame, I like hedgehogs but they are an invasive pest here. Should catch 'em and send 'em in the post to Blighty - I understand you're running a bit short over there.

    Sir Brian Lochore. Absolute legend of New Zealand rugby - from the Wairarapa to the All Blacks. No legends left to present the Heartlands Championships (Meads Cup and Lochore Cup) this year. I see this has got obit on BBC and the Telegraph.

    Looks like we're up to six hits with Bob Hawke and Ron Elvidge.
