    Sorry there was a disturbance in the force and the post disappeared …

    Just read Hosking on Kiwibuild. Yep.

    People disadvantaged in both public and private housing market should be assisted into their own homes with an equity share (ie disabled with housing needs not catered to) should be top priority. Hell, even Kiwibuild doesn’t care about them.

    Amy is not a happy camper. Someone wants to build a cycleway on the lakefront past her house.

    • Pat 3.1

      gotta be some perks to being an MP …lol

    • Incognito 3.2

      Imagine all that lycra flashing by, day in day out. She should use the RMA to block it or the fact that it will disturb the habitat of an endangered indigenous species threatened with extinction (i.e. a National Party MP).

      • Pete 3.2.1

        There should be warning signs on the trail. About exposure to her.

        • alwyn 3.2.1.1

          If you have ever seen Trevor Mallard and his mates going past in their lurid lycra you would think warning signs were a good idea too.
          Trevor seems to think he is a leading light in the tour de France peloton rather than a man in late middle age trying to live the youth of sporting achievement he never had.
          And he ignores the red lights along the way.
          You people in Auckland are lucky.

          • patricia bremner 3.2.1.1.1

            I think National and support predators have begun “duck shooting” at their latest target. They are determined to shoot a “mallard” and will get “dirty” doing so.

        • Graeme 3.2.1.2

          Can be arranged, but now she’s stuck her neck out everyone knows anyway. ODT have been giving it pretty solid coverage, and I’m wondering if a bit of factionalism isn’t stirring it along too. But such a fine target….

          The south side of Lake Dunstan is a fantastic ride, I’ve done it before the lake was filled along Fruitgrowers Road and the ministry tracks for the stabalisation. Great day out.

          There is an old ministry / farm track that bypasses Cornish Pt but it’s very steep and may be private, was hardcore mountain biking in early 90’s

    Absurd.

    Have to hand it to the Brexiters. They still have a way with catchy slogans.2016: “Take back control!”“Make Parliament sovereign again!”2018: https://t.co/x4gOXTNC8f— David Schneider (@davidschneider) December 6, 2018

    Good to see an All Black telling it how it is. We need more of this, instead so-called All Black role models telling us to throw our hard earned cash into rest home care facilities where workers are paid the minimum wage.

    Good on you Nehe Milner-Skudder.
