"The rise of ACT" puts me in mind of methane-inflated algae breaking the surface of a sewerage pond - don't know why...

Sometimes, things said here leave me bereft of the will to go on :-) "Centre voters seem to be warming to ACT's messaging and approach to politics at the moment."
"The Green Party’s 11 seats would easily get it over the line into governing." Stuff says.
Our PM is covered by a "mat" in a ceremony of apology for the dawn-raids - covered by a mat!! She's a phenomenon!
Maori will never again go with the colonist-loving Right (you heard it first here :-)
"This is the reason why I so vociferously resist the idea that the world is 'overpopulated'. By contrast I see each individual, each unique with their own experience and identity – as also being connected at a level we have yet to properly appreciate. " ...

He could comfortably believe that "technology has damned us", but recognise that he is inextricably reliant upon it now. No contradiction at all, in my view. In fact, there's a growing number of people who find themselves regretful but reliant in just that...
I'll talk to my people.
