    • BM 2.1

      Why? the dude was 89.

    • Anne 2.2

      The chances are his death will assist the Labor Party on Saturday.

      Unfortunately a new Aussie Labor govt. is going to strike the same massive problems as the Kiwi Labour-led govt. That is, multiple cumulative problems due to ideological neglect by their previous govt.

    You know you are an odious far right wing nut job when even Judith Collins tells you off for your grubby attacks.

    You would have thought changes made after the suicide of another beneficiary would have changed them but they really are heartless.

      It is yet another glaring example of why NZ inc is far from fit or ready to have a referendum on euthanasia.

      NZ inc is not remotely close to fit and ready even have the conversation. Maturity levels are simply not there… nor are the safety mechanisms

      So long as persecution against vulnerable and discriminated sectors of human beings are being actively targeted by the apparati of the state.

    Grumpy Cat has died. It stands to reason the world is now a happier place.

    Grumpy cat died today. This has made the world a slightly happier place.

    (testing if editor accepts this email…, it does, and to think, I could’ve made a fake account and argued with myself.)

    No you couldn’t’ve.

    Yes, I could’ve.

      You would not be the first to set up a menagerie of sockpuppets.

    • Incognito 6.2

      Because you used a different e-mail address you effectively became a different first-time commenter. I have approved it but please stick to one e-mail address when commenting on TS as this improves clarity with regard to your automatically assigned Identicon.

      If you consistently use the same e-mail, then your comments will get a consistent image.

      • WeTheBleeple 6.2.1

        I just couldn't recall which email I'd used.

        • Incognito 6.2.1.1

          No worries. That other e-mail address has been used before on TS but with a different Username. Please stick to one alias. I get suspicious when people use more than one; some commenters here use sockpoppets to get around moderation and bans. You shouldn’t want to draw that kind of attention …
