    NZ house prices almost tripled (+192%) between mid 2001 and the end of 2015, meaning they have more than tripled by mid-2016.

    This means that a house costs 3 times as much now as when the compensation guidelines for false imprisonment Amy Adams is relying on were set.

    So that’s really fair isn’t it? (sarc)

    You can do the calculation here:

    Ha! Just heard a scientist/toxicologist (I think) on Checkpoint say that if houses were that contaminated with P then P addicts would be smearing themselves against the walls of the said houses. Good point!

    She, the above is not worth commenting on.

    I head John Key is thinking of commissioning a similar sculpture to that hand one with the artists face on it.
    He is looking at inverting his face on his copy though and mounting it the other way up however to show this country what he thinks of us!

    Catriona MacLennan: 10 ways to fix NZ’s welfare state

    ‘Let’s return to the simple philosophy of 1938: it is the role and responsibility of the community to help those in need.
    We can afford it. Collecting the $1 to $6 billion lost every year in tax evasion and cancelling the proposed $3 billion tax cuts would easily provide enough money to ensure that no Auckland child grows up living in a car.’

    Park up for homes – Mangere event – More than 500 cars attending!

    This has been overlooked since the latest Colmar Brunton came out – but it’s something for the Left to be cautious about.

    Colmar Brunton (June 2016)
    Want Tax Cut in Next 12 Months 50%
    Do Not Want a Tax Cut 41%
    Don’t Know 9%

    National, of course, has been talking up the possibility of an Election year tax cut sweetener, indeed it’ll probably form the heart of their campaign, Labour meanwhile has been signalling raising taxes as part of its post-2017 plan.

      Hi swordfish…RM tomorrow…supposedly…

        Howdy, CV.

        Yep, the Roy Morgans have suddenly taken a turn to the Left over the last few months (with Colmar Brunton largely heading in the opposite direction), so I’ll be interested to see the latest – esp post-MOU, of course.

        Sorry I missed the all-out fisticuffs on the How about a bit of balance on Hillary Clinton ? post. Some absolutely Jaw-Dropping comments in support of “poor, old much-maligned” Hillary. She may be largely responsible for the deaths of an untold number of men, women and children – but apparently we don’t realise that that’s actually a good thing: proves she’s a powerful woman and role model.

        And some amusing Stalinism from dear old TRP. I’m beginning to see TRP’s banning policies as a new, innovative genre of Performance Art.

          the sedition act still seems to be a thing in some parts of the left wing.

        • the pigman

          A handful of posts were simply “disappeared” in the end – no moderator note, nuffin’, so the Stalinism thing ain’t so far fetched.

      Depends on the question Swordfish.
      “Would you like more money by getting a tax cut?”
      Yes please.
      “Would you rather have better education and more health instead of a tax cut?”

    WikiLeaks Is About to Ruin Hillary Clinton’s Chances of Becoming President

    In a recent interview with ITV, Assange said the whistleblowing website will soon be leaking documents that will provide “enough evidence” for the Department of Justice to indict the presumptive Democratic nominee. WikiLeaks has already published 30,322 emails from Clinton’s private email server, spanning from June 30, 2010 to August 12, 2014. While Assange didn’t specify what exactly was in the emails, he did tell ITV that WikiLeaks had “accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton, which could proceed to an indictment.”

    Of course, I doubt if she’ll be indicted even if there is enough damming evidence. It’s one rule for the poor and another for the rich.

    Labour MP Jo Cox has been shot and stabbed in West Yorkshire – reports

    Labour MP Jo Cox has been shot and stabbed at her advice surgery in West Yorkshire, her office has confirmed. Reports say the gunman is still at large.
    West Yorkshire Police are attending a major ongoing incident in Birstall near the city of Leeds in northern England.

    Reports suggest a woman, now believed to be Labour MP Jo Cox, has been shot and stabbed near the local library.

    Condition serious but unknown how serious.

    I don’t tell lies, I don’t like poor people and I definitely don’t like skinny women near me! Bitch’s! I’m a lovely person with some quite undeniable revealing features that impressed Obama so much he compared me to that crazy woman from Alaska who likes root’n toot’n and electricute’n black folk, Sarah Palin. Skinny hoe bag Bitch. He said,” I look better than a pig with a bit of lippy on”. He’s an ok for a darky. When that story came out about one of my staff who’ll end up at WINZ soon investigating undercover what its like to live in a car with her family…I’m just signing off her resignation right now. I’ll have someone on the inside, so now, I’ll get better intel and won’t get caught out again making shit up because I can blame the crazy woman living in a car with her family who no one will believe because I’m just signing off another document so that the tech people can remove her from our files and her existence from ever having worked here. So in the run up to next years election, the real story will come out about the crazy woman and her family and her making up the story of having worked for mwah as a hack journo …. you know the story,….no you don’t because I haven’t made it up yet. Gotta go, my limo’s here!
