Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

Moderation rules are more lenient for this section, but try and play nicely.



  1. Im not sure how this site works but I will give it a go.

    My comment is we in Northland are very pleased to have Winston Peters in place of John Keys man .
    Could someone tell us what Winston is doing for Northland,ive not seen or heard anything about him since election ,does he have an office similar to Nationals in Northland?
    What is his response to a business man from China buying a peninsular of many many acres, and importing six hundred Chinese workers to run farms,how did this get by immigration ,is it legal.
    Did Maori sell the peninsula to the business man , they havnt to our knowledge protested as they usual do if its Maori land.
    Is this what National meant when they claimed to be helping Northland by providing more jobs ,more jobs for who!!!
    Winston is probably busy in parliament, and this is not meant as a critism but a query.

  2. More on the TPPA….does Obama know what he is doing?…or is he now a servant of the corporates?….and to hell with the Democratic Party who oppose it

    “In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss Obama’s ignorance, his blissful strength as he pushes for TPIP – a trade deal about which he knows remarkably little if his speech to Nike is anything to go on. In the second half, Max interviews Tina Louise Rothery, who was a candidate for the Green Party in the General Election. They discuss the Conservative win, fracking and TTIP.”

  3. This is getting confusing. President Obama’s party is opposing him and his opposition Republicans are supporting him?
    Did he switch parties recently?
    What the hell is going on?
    Seems the American people are as much in the dark about the TPPA as we are and they are beginning to smell a rat.

  4. Today Natsies announce a Capital Gains Tax, (stealing a Labour election policy), which according to FJK last year, would not work!

    Indirectly acknowledging Auckland has a huge housing crisis, which only recently FJK denied!

    WTF is the slippery creep up to???

    While I do agree a CGT is necessary, this one doesn’t go far enough! Regardless of time, any investment property should be subject to a CGT once sold!

    • Don’t worry all you nice rich folks, no CGT here! Just tightening up a few rules. Nothing to worry about.
      B.s! Does Key really think we are all that stupid. That man really has a low opinion of New Zealanders doesn’t he?
      You know the old saying……..if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck……..

      • -That man really has a low opinion of New Zealanders doesn’t he?-

        That’s okay Mike, I have an even lower opinion of him so it balances…
