Tamihere's very intentional photoshoot

An Anonymous commenter suggested Tamihere didn't have any photos taken after his interview, because of course 'Dog Biting Men is satire'. He (?) also called me 'a bit of a loose unit'.

Aside from the photo of Tamihere on the cover of Investigate Magazine, and no doubt more photos inside, here is Wishart quoted in an NZPA article of only an hour ago:
"It's fair and open comment into why he did it, but the thing that is damaging me is this allegation that somehow Mr Wishart is so clever and so cunning that he tricked Tamihere into an interview, did not have a tape recorder there - or certainly didn't disclose it - and ... the photographs he took afterwards were for the family album."

Anonymous commenter = burnt.

I still like the nickname "Loose Unit" though...

UPDATE @ 10:45PM: I've been told a 'loose unit' is slightly more derogatory in some areas of New Zealand, particularly if you are a girl in Dunedin. Interesting how NZ has so many regional variations for slang words and phrases. Could this be because national media outlets avoid using slang terms, and thus word of mouth is the only way slang can make its way around the provinces?

I wouldn't be too quick to embrace "loose unit", it has parochial nuances. At Otago for example it means an easy woman :)
