He was Mayor of Hastings and presided over the Hastings District Council during the campylobacter fiasco of 2016.
Election 2020: National promises farmers return of foreign workers and a rollback of regulations on water and climate From the party that gave farmers mycoplasma bovis. Yeah. Good choice.
Judith looked liked she was auditioning for Mean Girls. John doing his fanboy impersonation. Jacinda the only adult in the room.
Major tax increases or new taxes appear to be off the table. The government still needs to reduce inequality. So they are raising the minimum wage and will implement Fair Pay agreements. If you can't take it from the top, add it onto the bottom!
Judith is running a decidedly lacklustre campaign. Combine that with uncosted farcical policies they have no intention of implementing, and it does look like they've given up. Or really do not want to be in government for a couple of more terms while they ...
And reads like Enid Blyton.
USA or Somalia. Much the same thing. Yeah I know, hyperbole.
Or rewriting their CVs.
'Particularly annoyed' Collins vows to find out who created 'misleading' National ad with her name on it Judith can't control her own party members. Regularly polling below 30%. Is there nobody left in the National cares who cares about the result? Have ...
I know the question was rhetorical, but nope.
https://thespinoff.co.nz/business/01-09-2020/live-updates-september-1-new-poll-shows-aucklanders-divided-over-level-three/ Labour below 50%, Nats still below 30%, Greens over 10%
Or you hold your nose, admit people are flawed and vote Green.
I'm not sure which term to use. Is it virtue signalling, or identity politics, or just plain stupidity to do it all so publicly.
You got to love the way the left can turn on itself. The only winner here is Judith.
Replying to SPC at 26. As a current teacher, it will be almost impossible to enforce proper mask wearing, and utterly impossible to enforce social distancing. 11 and 12 year olds are a tactile, social lot. And that aspect of their school life is just as ...
Be careful what you wish for and all that. When's the next round of polling due?
In the fullness of Covid Time, there will still be cafes, bars and restaurants. They just will owned and staffed by different people. Your breakfast coffee and muffin will be safe. Nature, and capitalism abhors a vacuum.

Thanks Robert, and excuse my ignorance, but who authorises dairy farming in Southland and the Mackenzie Basin?
The townie that I am asks, if the ground gets so badly pugged up during winter, is it suitable land for cattle farming?
Replying to Logie97 at 21. The media interview businesses, and the opposition. For the sake of balance they should be also interviewing those whose lives are being saved.
Judith V Covid https://youtu.be/mJZZNHekEQw
A classic case of the Peter Principal.
Judith appears to be only interested in shoring up her base. Reckoned to be 30-35% Thereby saving a few list mps their jobs. Hoping they'll support her post election? Appealing to the hardcore Nat voter, and giving up on the floating. Why else continue to ...
Absolutely agree, just not in public. Nobody likes to be called out by the boss in front of the rest of the world. Deal with it at work, have the inquiry when the time is right.
So what you're asking for is perfection from every health sector worker. Having had some experience with the health dept, good luck with that.
ISTM the both the opposition and the media are looking for scapegoats. While a typical human reaction, we all want someone to blame, this would be highly inappropriate right now. Once this pandemic is well under control, and we are all at level 1 or 0, ...
True, but the dirty tricks seem to be driving their poll ratings down. High teens anyone??
Just listened to the Kim Hill interview. She is relentless sometimes. But give Judith her due. There was no backing down, in fact she doubled down as is her wont. Judith came accros whiny and piqued cos the Prime Minister won't let her or her friend Shane ...
With the policy the Nats are putting out it is obvious they have realised they have no way of winning the treasury benches this election or next. The transport policy was just ridiculous. probably undoable given the geology of the Brynderwyns and Kaimais. ...
My enemies enemy is my friend?
