Their population has been declining for some time, since 2007. it is currently $126m and is predicted to be in the vicinity of $1110 million by 2040.
I like to classify myself as left wing but as soon as the RT and Russia stuff happens my eyes glaze over ...
RL has credibility. He never accepts status quo. He always questions proposals for change but from a class viewpoint. I think we should analyse what he is saying and not speculate about his motivations.
Yep this week in the list of filed resource consents there are 5 residential properties being redeveloped and being converted from 6 dwellings (one of them has two houses) into four apartment blocks and 20 houses. The avalanche is staggering.
Hah SF I have a deep respect for class politics. Culture is important but class is where the brutalising is happening.
Thanks Andrew and very topical. Mind if I convert this into a guest post?
I think Hoarse Whisperer captures it best. https://twitter.com/TheRealHoarse/status/1330655691867123712

That makes as much sense as the Venezulean involvement theory :grin:
"Goodfellow then went on to both praise and slam the Labour Government’s COVID-19 response and election campaign. He said “reasoned debate became treasonous” during the campaign and it was a race of celebrity. Goodfellow then went on to “give credit where ...

"Quite the contrary. The sooner the allegations get to court, the sooner a Repug lawyer has to admit in front of a judge there is zero evidence for the allegation, and admit they are just blowing smoke and wasting everybody's time." I dream of these sorts ...
Fark that is such a brutal comment but with the background so accurate ...
Good comment. A slightly less obnoxious more competent candidate could have won. Scary ...
That is the sharpie version!
Thanks Ad. Agreed entirely about water. This is the big, really big issue for the country. This summer parts of Tamaki Makaurau are going to face severe pressures, worse than last year. The Waikato river and Tainui (kia ora) are helping but this is not ...
Interesting comment Swordfish. The broad left have discussed for a few decades now the competing arguments of class, race and gender. Some see things in class terms only, others in gender terms, others in race terms. For me I see class and race as being ...
My pleasure and my obligation.
Yeah. Good comment.
Atlanta only 72% counted. Margin narrowing. Lots of early and special votes ...
Can I go out on a limb and say watch Georgia?
Man that comment summarises how I have felt over the last few hours!
Yeah this is way closer than I thought it would be. I mean this should be a slam dunk. Who would vote for Trump after all that has happened in the past 4 years?
RNZ just reported that millions of robo calls had been made urging people to stay home and not vote. Failed democracy ...
