    a 400km hikoi that turns up when Parliament is closed. What a face plant!

    “We are spending the most money as a society educating the wealthiest people,” Ronald Ehrenberg, director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute, told Inside Higher Ed. “The people who need help the most are the most disadvantaged. They end up going to the universities that spend the smallest amount per student.”

    The result is an unfortunate and yet seemingly endless cycle that keeps low-income students trapped in poverty—regardless of whether or not they did manage to work twice as hard as their wealthy peers.

    Working harder doesn’t achieve what the RWNJs say it does.

    The “Cat Killer” label was mean spirited. But they have dropped the cat label on stuff and the Herald. Bit late mates!

    Wonders if Audrey Young got the chop from the Herald, article removed, not even her name up.

    I’ve been more than quietly peeved about how Len Brown treated Penny Hulse, seems I’m not the only one

    A good read from Metro.

    Again we could have had a Mayor with a moral compass, instead we got another selfish one.

    Good-bye, good riddance and thanks for the rail loop – should have been more, but I suppose Auckland, we use to getting shafted.

      The politicians seem more concerned with doing what the rich want rather than what’s good for the country/city/people.

    Well, well, well. Assange has nailed the Clinton Foundation. Anyone out there still thinking Hillary is presidential material? And yet she is going to be steamrolled into power. Be scared, very scared, of this woman.

      . . . . and what’s the alternative? A misogynistic fuckwit who will drag us all into the past and into another global war no doubt!

        Hillary Clinton has a long history of pushing the US into illegal wars, as well as escalating military tensions in the middle east, and against Russia/China.

        The Pentagon’s military “pivot” against China in the Pacific was in many ways Hillary Clinton’s initiative.

        Clinton is the very definition of “the past” representing the political status quo of the last 30 plus years.

        Yes Trump is unpleasant and politically inexperienced, but Clinton is demonstrably corrupt and a warmonger in public office.

        I agree with Garibaldi that it is very likely that the corporate and military-industrial neocon establishment will steamroller Hillary into office. Trump still faces an uphill electoral college battle.

        Well, they could all vote for Stein.

      • Garibaldi 7.1.3

        Doogs ,what’s the bet Hillary will beat Trump to start a war ??? Hillary ‘s got it ‘planned’ for her , Trump hasn’t. Trump at least wants to stick it to the powers that be, even though he is a loosehead. I still maintain that Hillary is more of a threat to the World than stupid, floundering Trump.

      Link?

        Just read Doug Band’s long email memo about Bill Clinton’s 500 conflicts of interest.
