Of course the government is involved. They set the policies. And they were cynical enough to announce a 3 year pay freeze for teachers, nurses, public servants one day - then announce so called fair wage bargaining the next. They could afford meaningful ...
Why can't they just put a cycleway clip on on the existing bridge? Light weight. Doesn't have to be a major drama.
I have no argument with that. Totally agree. My point is, however, that this design in this place totally destroys what has become an iconic Auckland landmark. An absolute cockup.
Seriously? The Northern Pathway for a cyclists' harbour crossing? It's an eyesore totally destroying what is an iconic Auckland view of the existing Harbour Bridge.
Opening up Whangarei and Northport will only happen if they get the friggin rail sorted. Does anyone seriously want all those container trucks on the road, all the way to and through Auckland?
One of the most awful images I have in my head is that of those two boys having to walk through the streets of London behind their mother's coffin. Absolutely inhumane.
Yes, and absolutely nothing done about rent control eg CGT.
Production, distribution and exchange?
You mean like Alan Jones?
Not totally a media catchphrase. Witness the Corbyn leadership shambles, the so-called antisemitism shambles, the current leadership woes.
The fact that Labour is in total disarray doesn't help. They really need to get their shit together.
Not wanting to take on student loan debt?
You mean, keep it Soimly!
No, but for a graduate trained professional with years of service it isn't luxury either. Remember the days when a teacher at the top of the basic scale earned the same as a backbench MP?
Simple - if they don't clean up their pigsty, evict them. I'll bet they wouldn't get away with this in their own homes. A free skip for furniture etc is probably a good idea, but ffs surely they can be expected to live like civilised people in a community.
That was not the idea put forward.
Yes. That is, supposedly, what a Labour government with this mandate should be all about. Sadly, it isn't.
professional training, and qualifications and experience over many years.
Unbelievable. What is this LINO government thinking? Where did this public sector pay freeze come from? Are they also going to abolish all the committees and consultants they seem to rely on these days? I really hope this is a spur for all workers to join ...
Cancel their citizenship and deport them.
Go the bus drivers. And message - join your union. Needed now more than ever.
But of course if we criticise it and speak against it, we are guilty of racism and hate speech.
Young people have always wanted to travel and work around the world on the OE. It doesn't mean they should be paid exploitation wages. But, neither does it mean they should be able to do dodgy courses and get dodgy residents visas - then expect to bring ...
+Total rundown of social housing.
Instead, the message should be, "Get involved in politics. Engage. Join a party. Help forge policy. Select worthy candidates. Attend meetings. Vote." Tried that. Hasn't worked.
It's two years away. Plenty of time to downsize herd numbers over 2 breeding seasons. Maybe there'll be a corresponding decrease in the devastation mass dairying is wreaking on our land use. Oh - and maybe we can stop importing the evil palm kernel shit ...
Absolutely 100%. What are they thinking? If indeed they are thinking at all.
People whose family members have been killed or who have suffered physical injuries can easily be compensated. People who have suffered mental trauma can be provided with support and counselling and they should be. Trying to put a figure on financial ...
New Zealand SUPER is a social contract between NZ workers and the government of the day. The deal has always been that you work and pay your taxes for 50 years and you are entitled to a pension. If you still have more income than about 27 thou, that ...
