A contribution to the cost of quarantine would be appreciated, everyone has ongoing daily living costs. Also, if once the emergency is over people cut and run back to where they came back from, perhaps they should be expected to pay in full. It doesn't ...
Remember Auckland Central while going to a Nat did not register the highest party votes for National. Much of the reason it was the Nats seat was because of Kaye herself. Without her, I can easily see it changing
It has been for a long time in Epsom. If the darling of the moment, one J Collins, had not summarily binned the recommendations for change to MMP that came out of the 2012 review I believe it would be far more conducive to honest voting.
And if all left voters voted for Goldsmith in Epsom, bye bye Seymour. Nelson is ripe for the picking if tactical voting were employed bye bye Nick Smith. Kelston will need left voters to rally around Deborah Russell as there are a reasonably hefty number ...
A much, much cleverer tactic would be for Labour to stand aside in Epsom, then all Labour voters vote for Goldsmith and get Seymour and the NRA out
Not so sure any longer, up till all this came to light, Boag was her campaign manager, which kind of throws her into a bit of a different light
Only way to go when you are forced into a corner
It is testament to this govt's ability, having to manage keeping the virus out of the country with one hand and having to defend themselves from ludicrous assaults from across the floor. I think for once and for all, they have demonstrated they are more ...
Capitalism is what it's name suggests, the accumulation of capital. It is not that people should not be free to pursue their own dreams, it is just the acquisition of far, far more than you will ever need should not be lauded, in fact it should be seen as ...
A mixed economy, that is what most are. We do, however, scrap over the bits in the middle, over what should be taken care of by the collective and what is left to the market. I believe it is the best of both worlds, but some things do need setting in stone...
Todd "The Gaffer" Muller, on account of all the gaffes
It was also back to front (turn your screen over). Imagine if you could turn a flag inside out
If you wish to reclaim the name, then Kirikiriroa is it. I even have the catch cry for it, "You're going to hear us Roa"
Well given that was the name before it was changed to Hamilton, it seems fitting to return to the original. I would miss being able to refer to it as "The Tron" however
Oh my, haven't Judith Collins assertions about her ethnicity worn well through all of this?
Calculating? Well, she must think 2 and 2 make 5, because if she was good enough at it, she would have been leader long ago, at least about 3 years ago, but she has shat in her own nest too many times.
Woke at some ungodly hour this morning, switched on the radio, Newstalk ZB, discussion was about the two lost trampers. One caller (older male, how surprising) seriously suggesting the use of a bullwhip on them. They are there, always have been, almost ...
First, I would like to assure Ms Collins that she is not demonised for being white, she is demonised because, well, she is a demon. Second, it is okay if you are white, however, the assertion of that, in the manner that it has been, as a counter to ...
With bated breath we will wait to see if it is "Beijing Bridges" or just "Beige"
ACT are a big fat fraud. When they formed, the position they took on the spectrum would have been as far right, if not further than TOP but quite considerably more libertarian. It has gone from a libertarian party to a conservative one.
My advice to any party who cares to listen, is that if it is to be dirty, to make sure that is only coming from one side.
Scratching my head at the headline till I realised it should have read "Why Save National?"
I am sure Morrison loves the idea of that being freely available to see all around the world. He was outwitted. Mind you, a battle of wits with an unarmed man...….
Forelock tugging and rear end kissing IS a form of solution? We do not have to roll over and play dead just because Australia is bigger than us, all we have to do is be better, and we are, and most certainly in that encounter Ardern was streets ahead of ...
It matters greatly who the houses are owned by. If the public purse is having to top up rents for landlords then it is far, far preferable that such housing be owned by the public in the first place.
You only have to look at Japan, and just about any advanced society where women do have such controls, birth rates are well down.
That's funny, I could have sworn New Zealand was part of the world. Gee, you learn something every day, don't you?
And what was owned as investment property usually consisted of a block of flats, suitable for people after they left home and before they got married, and that was about it, really.
There was a time we had little need for many landlords. We need to aspire to that again
When you have to sidle with your stomach well drawn in, along the space between house and boundary as the section is so miniscule then you understand why. Goodbye the home vege garden, goodbye the home fruit trees, goodbye backyard cricket.
