Apparently it was the walk by adults which was the trigger. This journalist is being selective with his facts to support his political narrative.
Nanaia has created a situation where individuals have to face their value bases, and for many it will be a revealing moment.
Actually, she is admired widely as trying hard to keep people safe and stopping people falling through the cracks. Wealthy Landlords "not so much!!" Reality, you are right. Sadly many will blame her as anything else requires self examination.
The early (2002) legislation was meant to assist Maori to get local representation, through taking the "heat" out of the issue. There are a handful of reticent Councils which wish to exclude any but their own world view. The tone of Adam's writing is anti ...
Once again Nania Mahuta shows her class. Representing Aotearoa New Zealand, challenging racism and cleaning up water standards and infrastructure. We are fortunate in her effective achievements.
Hello Cinny, Welcome back.
A pension should go with it for Special Services on the "Front Line"
Hi Weka, it appears Hotels still pay the minimum if they can get away with it. So how about Praise for those groups and Hotels who pay the "Living Wage" or better. Shame the rest by naming the Best!!
Herodotus @ 2.2 "Total deviation?" Devotion? Your biblical reference to coin.... Try some kindness, doesn't cost a bean.
Hi Barfly, I agree!! There are times when righteous drivel and pro Nat anti Labour is reason to shout.
We have to own the different laws which disadvantaged Maori and empowered Settlers. Ownership building laws for instance.
LOL Alwyn, a man who worked in tax evasion schemes no less!!
Went on their face book and told them I would not buy their products any more. Have found a better vegan yoghurt at half the price.
Alwyn Cullen introduced Kiwi Saver and the so called "Cullen Fund" now worth 54 billion plus. You "Sir" are a troll.
Yes Tony +100, We find Aussies liked and voted for Pauline Hansen in large numbers in Qld, and Alan Jones is a mouthpiece for the right. A "Shock jock". More people though are supporting left leaning pollies who have appeared to do better with the virus ...
They were not on holiday. Fix has been put in place. (much gnashing of dentures in the troll gallery).
Yes travel to see our son... a long way off for all the reasons raised. There are still more questions than answers. I do think we should be praising and paying a premium to those doing the job of keeping us safe. I read many criticisms, yet our managed ...
Poor Motueka. That hail has caused great grief. We have just had the same in Rotorua, but for a shorter time.
Travel safely and enjoy. Happy Christmas Cinny and your daughters. It is a while since you have been here which is a worry. Hope you and others who have not commented for a month or so are ok.
Thanks for this post Ad. We wring our hands and grind our teeth in frustration wanting everything done yesterday, but Green Shoots indeed. There are other problems to be tackled, but there always are!! We should celebrate and acknowledge the hard mahi done...
Season's Greeting to one and all. It has been a long hard year, may you all enjoy family friends and a break. Cheers.
Yes and they (Mediaworks)are still in denial.
Yes aom, this is a strategy. When the mine first wanted to do work in the area it was stopped as the land was slipping. You are right about deep pockets. They afford expensive ranks of lawyers which increases costs. My late Mother and I asked how Waihi's ...
Yes Ad, National's view of debt reminds me of my parents' view. They felt borrowing against future income to 4 times to buy a home meant a life time of debt. When we had repaid that within 10 years, had an asset, and then began saving for our pensions, ...
Yes Koff this is terrible and those storms are huge. That list bought tears to my eyes. We can only hope they find safety, and we need to be ready to donate for their recovery.
Good to see ANZ stepping up to control investment in property. 40% deposit to control 30% of the market.
They always looked at the Left Barfly and anyone different, that is why they were blind to the behaviour on the Right, always looking the wrong way!!
Brilliant example Robert.
Thank you Iprent, @ 11.1 my thoughts expressed so succinctly, especially the "skin crawl" bit. They have proved to harbour political evil, as exposed by Nicky.
Actually, that is the Court's role, to examine evidence and give a verdict. So why anyone would consider such a case a waste of time perhaps is their stance? The issues should be examined, and if unfair, another referendum held. Personally, the medical ...
