    Did we just see a political turning point on Newshub tonight? Key and Little both asked for their views on the LGBT nature of the attack in Orlando.

    • Greg 1.1

      Keys views are written by someone else.

      • ScottGN 1.1.1

        Sure but one of those men looked very much like a tired has-been and the other one looked like a PM-in-waiting.

          Yep, Key’s well known shortcomings and lack of wisdom and judgment were up in lights on that one ….

          He was flailing all over the show
          flailing he was
          he is all flailed out

            He looked useless, a shambles – not too cocky at all.

            • Anne

              Not defending him but hey… he gotta lot of probs. at the moment. Nick Smith, Judith Collins and the ticking time bomb, Paula Bennett. I imagine Orlando comes further down the list of priorities at this time. 😉

    • tc 2.1

      Labour/green need to focus on getting people voting and swinging the middle back.

      Attend farm days, visit the naki etc etc but don’t waste time trying to convince farmers to change the habits of generations in safe national seats

      • b waghorn 2.1.1

        They are meant to be a “Labour” party ,rural nz operates off the sweet of labourers , some who are treated like slaves.

    Last week there was some thread on a matter that arose on that very good tele program “Why Am I?”, which covers the famous longitudinal study of 1,000-odd Dunedinites.

    Is on again tonight 9.30 I think (next episode)

    Highly recommended yes

    Another day in John Key’s neo-liberal nightmare.
    We have become a cruel, greedy, uncaring and selfish nation under his wretched leadership.

    Cruel and uncaring.

    Palmerston North hires thugs to harrass beggars

    ‘Beggars on the streets are one of the most visible symbols of our society’s failure, their increasing numbers an indictment of the current government. But the rich and powerful just Don’t Want To Know, and so we’ve seen various local authorities try and “control” the problem and drive the destitute out of sight and out of mind. In Wellington, there was the “alternative giving” campaign, which turned out to be an expensive failure. And in Palmerston North, the council is planning to spend almost $20,000 to pay security guards to stand next to beggars all day:’


    • tc 4.1

      Nat MP goldsmith tried to get akl council to pass a bylaw banning them from the CBD so these rwnj councillors have form on this.

    History of state money creation

    At Positive Money we want to set the record straight and bring to light the many case studies where state-led money creation has successfully boosted the economy without leading to economic disaster. This will hopefully challenge the knee-jerk reactions of many economists to any suggestion of state-led money creation, and encourage them to bring theory and analysis back into the debate.

    We have released a series of eight concise posts with case study examples illustrating the circumstances where Public Money Creation has helped grow the economy:
