Egads, it's almost like they're doing it on purpose. Could it be? The Trump/Boris method: "We're stupid, defiant and arrogant, now hurry up and give us your votes, losers!"
Excellent post. It's almost become like the farmer-hatred attributed to the greenies, townies, lefties, etc is a false-flag hit. Yes there are dreadful farmers, but many good ones who would benefit more from going regenag than status quo, and know it. Our ...
I know, right?
He's hard to work out, as his vitriolic posts seem designed to steer as many lefties away from the greens as possible, so he can wallow in his smugness. But if you watch him in person, he's way more likable and jovial.
He was also wickedly hungover: sweating, bleary-eyed and stuttery (yes, takes one to know one). The guy seems to have finally lost it. It was abject, embarrassing.
I'm with you there. A dumb private school might rankle, but in the context of keeping the planet liveable I'll take that over the other choices.
+1 The thing for me would be getting a bit more of a grip on advertising. Kids, as are adults, are susceptible to such a major slough of targeted ads these days. Without mitigation of what misinformation is vomited towards them, we might well see corporate...
This is so obviously a good idea that it's embarrassing that it isn't done already.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Malcom Morrison?
"other" refers to 'other than NZ', not 'other than Japan et al'. Presumably.
Hmmm I guess that didn't work... Just a relevant JC meme: https://pasteboard.co/JmUOPaK.jpg
Second Decade Third decade isn't it?
Please remind us...?
Ardern telegraphing a lack of support Anyone got a link for this? (Yes I'm pretty, but the s.freud is too tempting.)
slagging off the Greens, and actively undermining them Yes, I've noticed that too – I got 'silenced' from his blog for pointing out same. I can't work out what his agenda around that is supposed to be. He's built a small but vociferous army of absolute ...
I always thought the knights of old were the ones who invaded a peaceful village, plundered their resources, destroyed those who stood against them, 'protected' (enslaved) the rest, installed themselves as local warlord and 'donated' some of their plunder ...
Re character, we've witnessed that time and again from this lot - it's not even a conspiracy, they were quite blatant about it during the days of DP and Crosby/Textor. How hard would it be to pay off a couple of goons to spread a highly infectious virus? ...
Horrible to admit, but it's definitely a possibility. Why wouldn't they? Throw a few thousand (mostly poor) to the wind to make a buck; societally we do that already. It's their only hope, hence Bloomfield's "if not when" announcement.
Me too. Of course that "tax is love" stuff was going to be mocked, what a dumb decision. They should get a bit rowdy and say something like, 'we won't tax you - well tax *them* (the billionaires)'. But the released policy is actually pretty good, and ...
🤣🤣Judthulu! Gold! That deserves a drawing, any clever artists care to...?
Yes, I agree, I like these numbers even better than the "rogue" poll. The GP will get to make a few more serious demands, and Labour can keep chasing that centre.
And the next story was about how they are adopting some pretty green power policy. Could this be...?
Not even, I reckon... Reclaiming the c word is far less of a big deal than, say harassing waitresses, sexting teenagers, breaching privacy and lying about it, etc... But it gets equal or more attention in the media to any of their good policy stuff. It's ...
Eeewww I just saw that too on RNZ. Back into the hot seat for Whaley-boy.
Which explains why he busted out the 'mental health' card. Everyone knows you can't kick a man when he's down. Such a shame he had to pin blame the poor people who took their lives for behaviour which is ultimately his personal responsibility.
Excellent point. STV for electorate seats.
It won’t harm their overall result It will if they dip below 5%, due the Labour's juggernaut of exposure lately. Maybe Labour ought to stand aside for Chloë? Or is the onus only on the Greens to show they can be mature and genuine?
Yikes: "Deputy National leader Gerry Brownlee has doubled down on leader Judith Collins' unapologetic stance on diversity, saying it can be hard to balance with competence." Competence not possible with diversity? I.e. we, the rich old whites, are simply ...
Fellow pedant (it's always nice to meet another one): it's "Winston", not "Winstone". You're welcome .
