Your post lost all credibility here… …and a legacy of Speaker rulings easily the better of Lockwood
Can we have a list of all your sins from when you were 16 please?
Yet that is exactly what Ms Ardern conceded she has done with the restrictions on unvaccinated people- https://www.independent.co.uk/tv/editors-picks/new-zealand-jacinda-ardern-coronavirus-vaccines-ve5572e26?amp
For a Nazi protest- they do an awfully good haka. Wellington Protests: Anti-mandate protesters perform a haka outside parliament | Stuff.co.nz - YouTube
The Nazi supported anti vaxer protest Where is this protest? Goodwins law in the first sentence is impressive. I guess if you are going to lie you may as well lie big right?
As someone in the sub-set “rest of the country”- you do not speak for me.
Because prison rape jokes are funny if it is about people we don’t like right? Hahahahaha. Oh wait. They’re not.
Will Labour have the same problem with MPs leaving NZ against official Government advice to have a holiday in a Covid hotspot?
Do you really believe there is a difference between what National want and what Labour are going to do other than the date? And that date is only two weeks apart. You seem to be doing what you accuse National of- opposing whatever the “other side” put up ...
Curious as to why NZ was not included in your second chart?
You do realise that the OCR and central banks are not the only source of funding for banks right? As above - I work in a bank. I have access to cost of funds information.
See above- you clearly do not understand bank margins. e.g. a business loan will have a margin above cost of funds or a business base rate. Assume the base rate is 3% and the margin is 1.5%- the effective rate will be 4.5%. If the OCR moves up 50bps the ...
You clearly don't understand how bank margins work. I work for a bank. I see the cost of funds. They work off of bps margins not % above cost of funds.
Common belief that is just plain wrong. Just because interest rates go up does not mean banks make more money. Generally the margin the banks are making remains the same. On a 12 month fixed rate loan at the moment a bank is probably making 60bps, so your ...
“The end of elimination didn’t necessarily mean failure. Keeping the virus out for so long was a huge win, giving us time to prepare.” What prep was done? From what I can tell- no new ICU capacity has come online and we are scrambling to come up with a ...
"Reminder in the 70's 40% of children were born out of wedlock and 40% within 9 months of getting married." Got a source for that claim?
I see the fee for doctors administering euthanasia has been announced at $1087. Sadly this is only slightly less ($1090) than a midwife is paid for delivering a woman’s first child and is more than they are paid for a subsequent child ($855). It is a sad ...
Disturbing that it is essentially the same as a midwife is paid to deliver a life into this world.
Aside from “not being Judith” what has Labour achieved since coming to power? Journey back with me to 2017- a bright eyed Jacinda made her first promise as leader of the Labour party to bring light rail from the CBD to the Airport by 2021. Now I just ...
Genuine question- is there data that shows the net pay difference with the tax cuts on current minimum wage versus same tax rates on the living wage based on a standard 40 hour week? [Fixed typo in e-mail address]
No actually- I’m on PAYE as an employee so pay what I pay, but thanks for the ad hominem abuse.
But did you notice the question from the City Mission mentioned that people do not have enough disposable income even with jobs and some working two or three jobs... would they not be better off with a tax cut?
Relentless increases to benefits... who is going to pay for that?
Aom- did you have the same criticism of the BLM protests?
Key went out on top, good for him. Now time to roll that charisma vacuum called Andre Little and bring in 'Gracinda. '
Ask Grant to resign,
Hi there, I am very happy that Andrew won, I think he'll steer the ship well with integrity, hard work and determination. Nothing phases him. What I am not happy is Darrien Fenton's ungracious comments today. Three weeks ago she was staunchly defending ...
Don't take it personally, its just that GR ain't fit to win an election. He is 5 years away, he should be a minister before he is leader. He needs to earn it, and has not paid his dues yet!
I will also resign my membership, I cannot handle another term of this god-forsaken government. If ABC get their way, we will be punished because their own self-interest has gotten in the way of getting into office. I will join another social democratic ...
I totally agree. What gets my knickers in not (lol) is Robinson's two faced face denying he was disloyal to Shearer. The way I see it, doing nothing and waiting for your boss to hang himself out to dry is being disloyal. He was totally un-supportive of ...
I am really concerned that the ABCs will stuff this up for us all, and if so; we are toast! Can anyone please tell me that my worries are unnecessary and that Cunliffe has got this? I really hope so. I have donate to his campaign, fingers crossed!
