I wrote a longform essay on the politics of the arts and education. Here's the link if you're interested. It is published in this month's North and South magazine as one of the winner's of the D'Arcy Writer's Grant. https://mandyhager.com/2017/07/18/for-...
I'm loathe to join this discussion because it's so thoroughly vile in tone, but can't go past this. Current apprentices must pay for their own training whilst on minimum wage - the cheapest is roughly $750 per year and it goes up from there - for this they...
And how about an apology to Nicky Hager and the others who broke the Panama Papers?
An awful insight into insidious ideological brainwashing http://thinkprogress.org/immigration/2016/04/13/3769182/students-bullying-splc-trump/
The trouble with moderating your own posts is you still get to read the shit even if you don't approve it! I'm not sure I'd find this any more enticing. Perhaps a whole strategy change is needed - instead of leaping straight into name-calling and argument ...
I have written for The Standard several times but I find the level of abuse from trolls too unhealthy. Of course, that's exactly what they want - a 'chilling' effect - but knowing it does not make it any less dirty and unpleasant. It doesn't mean I won't ...

Spanner - Heather Simpson not appearing in public says a lot about politics that you really don't know about.
For John Key saying nothing and fumbling for an answer is worse than saying anything depending on the audience.
I was eleven years old at the time of the 1981 Springbok tour and still remember vividly how it affected NZ. Key saying that he can't remember is just plain bullshit.
Matthew - Once again you have missed the whole point of my postings. It's probably because of the pro partisan political nature of this website, that makes you so one track minded, that even a smidgin of disagreement is met with abosulute fury. Not ...
Matthew - My intention was never to explain nor defend those who have obscured the religious views of Bill. So why you would be asking me to answer such a claim demonstrates your flawed logic. My questioning of your view does not mean that I support the ...
Matthew - I agree that deleting an old entry is unethical. But is is so important? It seem that those who should care, don't. And those that shouldn't, unfortuately do. Nice to see that you think poitically expedient electorates that won the election in ...
