ah the internet, that fountain of truth
Don't you live in Southland Robert - how would you know what Auckland local body voters are thinking???
Certain elements of the Labour caucus will be very tetchy about this, a walk out perhaps??
3 Waters - Keep going Labour, this is a winner https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/129513710/auditorgeneral-raises-concerns-about-accountability-in-three-waters-plan

I will miss your posts Corey
Simple case of different personal priorities
Really? We booked a week away to a sunny location - we made the booking 7 months ago and got a really good rate. Most of the people there were from NZ. We chatted with a broad range of people, carpenters, plumbers, truck driver, two secondary school ...
Rosie, many, many people in NZ can afford a holiday.

wow, the internal polls must be really bad
