A wealth tax would sort it Andre
😄....from a boomer
😄Keep holding that phone TM....there are plenty in the Labour left and Greens supporting you
Central government should give local councils that deal with high numbers of tourists a grant towards infrastructure....with some of this earmarked for much better public toilet facilities at potential freedom camping locations.
Agree Weston....better toilets at roadside lay-bys would solve 80 per cent of the problem....of course camp ground owners hate this solution and are a powerful lobby
From now on he will be known as knee-jerk Nash. The solution is more public toilets rather than destroying a lucrative part of NZ's tourist industry, and the country's image to boot.
Great shot...Carter has been unfairly much-maligned. He was unlucky with the Iran hostage raid that destroyed his chance of a second term.
Agreed..... Nash's moronic attack on backpackers has been ripped apart by the texters on RNZ....Labour showing themselves to be elitist and authoritarian here.....I guess it's consistent with their lack of action on wealth redistribution.
Polarisation or principles xanthe? Maybe the Greens actually want to do something about poverty by reversing the massive redistribution of asset wealth to the top 5% that has taken place in the last 40 years.
"Trump could've would have won with a slightly more considered approach." FIFY The Dems scraped this election against an idiot. I was impressed with Harris's mana in her speech accepting victory...maybe there is something hopeful to look forward to when ...
Rubbish Tricle. The vote is 75 million against 71 million-a nation split almost down the middle. You are using the unfair and unpredictable electoral college system to justify your statement, but that argument doesn't work either. If Trump had got a few ...
Biden has said that one of the first things he will do is rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. That has to be the best news the planet has had for some time. But Biden won this by the skin of his teeth-70 million voters supported Trump and his extreme right...
Maybe you should read this K SaysHi, and stop making rubbish up. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/trumps-lawsuits-are-politics-disguised-as-a-legal-strategy/ar-BB1aLsWH
The Greens out-voted ACT 7.9 to 7.6 in the final tally, reversing the election night position. Chloe Swarbrick more than doubled her majority in Akl Central to 1068 Labour lost Vegas by 224; shame.
Wrong it's all over-4 more years.
It's that good old entitlement mentality.
I have said a few times here that under the so called terrible election result in 2019 Corbyn would now be pm in the UK if they had MMP....with the support of the greens SNP and lib dems
Shame....fantastic and brave journalist....his coverage of the middle East second to none
Taking Auckland Central was such thick icing on the cake on the night. Now if only 67 per cent of specials can vote yes....
Cheers Robert.... apologies for accusation!
That's not what James and Marama have been saying in interviews where they have been explicit that the party can publicly criticise and not vote for any policy not covered by Cabinet solidarity rules. Are you stirring here because you oppose the deal ...
Agree Swordfish that it will probably lose. I think your 53-47 is unlikely though-it will certainly get to 52-48 or better.
Chess...Graham got his just deserts. Traitors seldom prosper in politics.
I like Gordon Campbell and he is normally spot-on, but where he says "the Greens barely survived MMP" he is wrong. After the specials have been counted the Greens will have around 8% of the vote. Despite being in government with Labour and NZF they have ...
It's Brexit all over again.....aaarrrrgghhh
Andrew Miller-Corbyn would have been PM in 2017 but for some freaky results in Scotland because the Conservatives had a popular leader there at the time that took about 10 seats away from the SNP. It was an incredible result for Corbyn and Labour. He was ...
Ad-this only works if you have MMP or similar.
The Salvation Army have already come out after the vote saying it should be decriminalised. They can see the writing on the wall and hope that their fall-back position will prevail.
I read on Stuff that if 69% of the 480k specials vote yes it will win. "Based on estimated special vote count of 480,000, cannabis needs 69 per cent of those (~ 333,000 votes) to flip the preliminary result, senior data journalist Kate Newton reports." Not...
They are saying on Stuff that if 69% of the 480k specials vote yes it will win. Not impossible.
