No wasn't 'going there at all'. A large portion of the inflation is beyond NZ's control and would not matter who was in government. Some though is definitely due to the reserve bank. I genuinely think that making ends meet and affording petrol, groceries, ...
Now that you have received an increase in income, do you feel that you are better off than before?
Do you think there should be a day off for the Pike River miners as well?
I heard on Newstalk ZB that the number was not 300,000, but was actually 1 million extra soldiers they were wanting. Don't know if this is factual.
The KC Maria Dew is now freed up to look in to the Labour bullying issues. [TheStandard: A moderator moved this comment to Open Mike as being off topic or irrelevant in the post it was made in. Be more careful in future.] [Stop you diversion trolling. This...
Labour are hardly transparent! Although they claimed they would be. [TheStandard: A moderator moved this comment to Open Mike as being off topic or irrelevant in the post it was made in. Be more careful in future.]
Asked on Tuesday at Parliament if she was a bully, Lorck replied: "I'm working hard to be the best MP I can possibly be". - that doesn't really answer the question. "I have a professional leadership coach and together we're working on how I can work to be ...
Nothing is free. Someone has to pay.
Now it's a two horse race.
Out of the three greatest (IMO) Federer has always been my favourite. I think Nadal is probably statistically the best as he's won the most grand slams. I think Djokovic will eventually become the 'greatest' or most grand slam winner as long as he remains ...

Sounds like masks now optional everywhere including public transport. Masks only required in healthcare and aged facilities.
The shopping centre I walked through, it was about 50/50 masks/no mask. I would have thought they would keep masks for public transport, hospitals, rest homes, but maybe just optional everywhere else.
Graeme Hart keeps a pretty low profile too. He is occasionally seen out in public. He's done pretty well for someone who left school at 16.
Their user name says it all really. Anything National does / suggests is bad. Anything Labour does / suggests is great. The facts and results are ignored.
AB will be happy that Meyer will vote for his team.
Yes I'm happy to pay more taxes to keep him in a juvenile prison and keep him off the streets else we get the re-offending like in the story of Mohamed in Stockburn in 18.1 above. He cant re-offend while behind bars. I guess in your view my thinking is ...
Yes I find it unbelievable that sentence of home D. As has been pointed out to me, we do not know all the details, but IMO that judge needs a rocket up her (unless judges have been ordered to reduce prison numbers). I hope due to the public outcry, they at...
Looks like a few other people disagree with the home D sentence. Hundreds turn out to protest against teen rapist Jayden Meyer's home detention sentence - NZ Herald Only 250 at the actual protest, but that means there would be many others around NZ that ...
Singapore has a very low crime rate. We should look at what they do different to us.

At least this one is only $23.5k compared with accusing someone falsely of rape and costing $330k!
You refute the premise of the question is the correct wording.
Another day, another fuck up comes to light. No wonder they do not want an enquiry in to the Covid response.
You two could be brothers!

"Whichever way you look at it; either they're sneaky, either they're incompetent or they're shivering, looking for a spine to run up and don't have the courage to fight for something they believe in - none of it's good." "Parker on Wednesday admitted the ...
Just out of interest, what part of my comment is contradictory and doesn't make sense? Saying that I want to keep the after tax income I have saved, and not have it re-distributed to others that have not saved seems very logical to me.

I wonder who gets the blame for this fuck up? Ardern being questioned on it in Parliament now and not doing too well! Getting very screechy.
