Labour should not be complacent, as Bomber rightly notes we are only one fuckup away from a renewed COVID outbreak. Our health system remains chronically underfunded in the middle of a pandemic and border management are so stretched (again lacking ...
Keeping in mind that fiat money and the "national" debt are just accounting tricks, and parties like the Greens and TOP are the only ones likely to rebalance the economy away from a landlord class perpetually exploiting the new serfdom https://twitter.com/...
I liked the NZF one better.. 😂 https://twitter.com/danxduran/status/1289390478249431040?s=20
"The Nationals"... astroturfing fail
Dan Bidois (Nat) must be nervous about Northcote as it's been trending to Shanan Halbert (Lab) and all he talks about is clogging up Onewa Rd with more cars
Also, Sarah Cooper is a TikTok sensation with her Trump lip sync... https://youtu.be/j8oaaP68i4s
Lovely tweet from Andrew Little https://twitter.com/AndrewLittleMP/status/1289282968695971840?s=20
There's a lot of truth in the Q conspiracy-- America *is* controlled by a cabal of crooks-- but their solution (Trump) is wishful thinking in the extreme. Also, the Q propaganda is first-rate. Example
So we need a cargo cult of billionaires to pray to?
Housing inequality is the core social problem of this country causing widespread unnecessary misery. Don't expect everyone to be polite about it. (It's not personal; I am commenting on politics and society in general)
Maybe something's changed recently because that's not what I've been hearing. https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/nzs-marine-industry-losing-jobs-and-millions-dollars-due-border-exemption-rules https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/416052/covid-19-...
The local superyacht industry is sinking just like the rest of the economy. Billionaires won't save us.
I don't want NZ to join any empires, thanks very much, Western or Eastern. I think it's symbolic that we sit on the international date line and our timezone is ahead of everyone else. We can maintain civil relations with global powers without buying into ...
Get out of the landlord game if you don't know what you're doing.
On a similar note, I hope everyone boycotts the America's Cup. It's costing Auckland $100 million at a time when the council is broke, so that a few billionaires can fuck around with yachts. And it's stealing more of our harbour and waterfront from the ...

(Via HackerNews:) Socialism's DIY Computer This fascinating article about the "Galaksija" and homebrew computer culture in 1980's Yugoslavia outlines an alternative history of the computer revolution... open source, widespread sharing, low cost, local ...
A toxic party of liars and shills for corporations and foreign powers isn't good for democracy either
Heartbreaking piece by Prof Richard Wolff. 40 million unemployed in the USA while Wall St takes record profits. What a sick and corrupt country. https://youtu.be/7zRTskxbsRg
I remember the day that Jacinda became PM, my little niece was 10 at the time and she was absolutely stoked (as was I), she came home from school, threw her hands in the air and said "hooray!". What a great example for young people everywhere is our PM.
Another shocker. Great work by the Lincoln Project https://twitter.com/ProjectLincoln/status/1286260420240703497?s=20
Sounds good, Mothers especially would be more likely to legislate with a view to future generations rather than short term profits
hurrah lets turbocharge the housing market yet again so that the most important voter demographic (middle class homeowners) gets more tax free money
Rich white guy, the judge will be lenient
The oligarchs have figured out how to hack democracy... endless torrents of disinformation and paranoia to get people voting against their own interests
Worth noting that the entire MSM is foreign owned, except TVNZ and RNZ. Our information is controlled by big news corporations, Silicon valley psychos, or State actors.
Well that would solve the core problem of too many humans and our unsustainable environmental footprint.
Funny how projects like 5G claim to represent progress and civilisation, but the behaviour of the political class and economic elites is anything but civilised. All the profits will go to transnational corporations and the expenses lumped on ordinary Kiwis...
Just to add to the misogyny, Mike Hosking calls the PM "Queen Cindy" but NZME purges it from the "transcript" https://twitter.com/nzmrichards/status/1285809489933856769?s=20
"National has a misogyny problem"... great thread by @juliefairey https://twitter.com/juliefairey/status/1285799779255988224
