    Mondays forcast: High: 15° Low: 9°Conditions: Rain at times. Strong southeasterlies.
    At least you’ll be able to blame the weather when 50 turn up

      Dude. Do you know what managing expectations means?

      If you want to make something appear small talk it up beforehand. If you want the event to appear large, don’t over egg expectations.

      How stupid are you going to look tomorrow when more than 100 times your estimate turn out? Your expectation will have been wildly exceeded. The outtake from that is ‘anger at supercity deeper than thought’.

      On top of that, you’ve just challenged everyone in Auckland who is anti the supercity to get out there and prove you wrong.

    • Zetetic 2.1

      Many people will be taking time out from their real jobs to try to protect democracy. You can continue to freeride on others’ work, jj.

        It’s been fun watching the rapid rewriting of the history books since November 2008.

        Today’s history lesson (revised):

        There were no protests on weekdays from 1999 to 2008. Those images in your head of people marching against Civil Unions, the Fart Tax, the Bradford bill, Truck drivers on the motorways, etc, etc … they did not happen, you dreamt all that.

        If these dreams continue, please report for further re-education. Thank you.

      where do you work? Just Jeans?

  3. It’s a shame the hikoi is in the middle of a working day. I would have loved to be there.

    There’s absolutely no reason why we can’t do this at least once a month, to cover all the people who wish they could be there but work kept them away. ‘At least once a month’ is probably about the fresh anger build up as new democratic rights are ripped away from New Zealanders.

    I hope the rest of New Zealanders are listening. The work is being put in as we speak for ‘streamlining’ other cities. Hope you don’t mind. You don’t seem to mind it happening to Auckland, do you Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin?

    Now would be a very good time to put your community assets into a trust.

    And look very carefully at the NAct MPs who are supposed to listening to their electorate. Judith Collins, Paula Bennett and Paul Hutchison certainly haven’t listened to their electorates.

    I’m afraid Auckland won’t be able to help you much because all their spirit is slowly being sucked out of them by JKeyll and Hydra. I suppose you know the old saying – divide and conquer (Douglas does), then there’s the ‘mainland’ laughing at Auckland being destroyed, but secretly glad it’s not happening to them. Well, swings and roundabouts, chums; swings and roundabouts.

    Without Maori seats everyone has the exact same voting rights. Complaining about “democratic rights being stripped away” because of a lack of Maori seats is anti-democratic and outright racist.

    • lprent 6.1

      Wrong. There is a special rule for south island seats. That results in fewer south island voters being required in an electorate an mp than northerners (or maori seat mp’s)

      But I guess that doesn’t fit your worldview. The effect of the Maori seats is no different in value per vote than a north island vote. What it means is that their votes are not diffused over the whole of the electorate.

      Basically you are talking crap.
