not sure if that was a reference to my post as well, but the point here isn't that Labour owed the Greens something. It was to point out that Labour are still centred in old school, macho politics, and this is distinct from green politics. Labour don't *...
The Greens are very effective at creating change from outside of government.
stop trolling. If you're not aware of what my position was before writing this post, then ask.
Not sure what you're on about there. It's not like this is the first time I've criticised Labour or Ardern.
afaik he was frustrated with the Greens not being more progressive (radical), and felt he could have more impact outside of the party. Big loss for the party imo, but it's been really good having him speak so freely.
we already know that Labour is a handbrake on GP policy though.
Interesting commentary from Jack McDonald (who was part of the negotiating team in 2017, and then left the party some time after the election). https://twitter.com/tautokai/status/1322393260560576512 https://twitter.com/tautokai/status/1322394030785794048
Or, come 2023 the radical left, the green left, Greenpeace and other climate activist groups, have spent three years jeering at the Greens and blaming them for what is actually Labour's inaction. There is no way in which incrementalism on climate is useful...
which confirms the impression that if Labour could, it would have all the power for itself. This is useful to know going forward.
You never drink alcohol?
If you have any links for the day, let me know and I will put up a discussion post.
yaay, wealthy people get to make money out of cannabis and most of the people that really need it can't afford it.
A closer vote would make taking further action more likely though.

did he say that?
Not sure what you are trying to say there. Most people who use cannabis for pain relief can't access medicinal cannabis and/or it's not in a suitable form. The referndum was going to change that and 53% of NZers said it's ok to kill yourself if you end up ...
what I was getting at was whether US citizens are being treated differently on entering the US. If stupid Americans are calling NZ govt fascist/communist for having mandatory managed isolation (and Q for positive tests) for returning Kiwis, then isn't the ...
I was asking about US citizens getting back into the US. That was easy before covid, right?
so she didn't have to go into managed isolation going into California?
letting the states sort it out is just for covid? Other overseas visitor controls are handled nationally?
So incoming, it's up to individual states? And some states have pretty much the same restrictions as NZ? (or harder for US citizens to return home than for NZers to return home).
What's the story with getting in and out of the US at the moment? Can citizens come and go freely?
He's from Mexico, how is he a Latin American wannabe?
in the sunnier parts of Otago, yes. Not so sure about Dunedin in winter, but it could certainly be used as a back up system (the power to the hot water tank switches off when water temp reaches a certain number). What we should be doing is building ...
this is essentially the argument to vote Green. Unfortunately, it's a bit late now to start running that line. Had the Greens been on 10%, then they would have done exactly what you are talking about and we would have had an awesome L/G govt. The situation...
please fix username.
or Ad wants the Green ministers in cabinet.
As opposed to being in Cabinet, not being able to speak out about problems with Labour policy and approach, and still being the person fronting to media to explain it all.
Eight days until the US election, and then maybe an indefinite time of whatever shit show unfolds after that. I want to be writing posts and it will have been obvious to commenter in Open Mike that I'm short on patience for moderating stupid shit at the …
Yes you do appear to be missing something. People are free to attack left wing politics so long as they're not making shit up or making claims of fact for what are essentially opinions. People can also be rude when making comments to an extent so long as ...
