    Extending closure of Manawatu Gorge by at least three more weeks a blow to transport operators

    What is the Government doing with all our fuel taxes, as it seems that it cant even open the George inside two months but can find money for “Roads of National significance” (RONs) mainly for trucks any time they want to, while they close down our rail!!!!!

    Get rid of this useless government fast.

    The brainwashing of dumbed down Kiwis continues, endlessly, I am right, others are lost, the situation is a disaster, a true disaster, the only hope is, that this poll is based only on middle class landline and detectable mobile phone users, who seem to be more the kind of middle class parents and kids:

    NZers are hooked to real estate speculation, on opportunism, consumerism, compete and stab in the back policies, and massively fell for election bribes for middle class families.

    This country is screwed with such realities, I wand to emigrate.

    No comment updates, I fear, so maybe TDB has been seized by hackers, or there is lively debate behind the scenes, about whether Labour get the message from the new poll out, and act, or whether they are a lost cause, and should be abandoned, but for which alternative???

  4. Mike in Auckland says:

    Come on Martyn and team, this may have reasons that no comments are uploaded, but to win the election, something else needs to be done, this is not going to help, but there may well be reasons for the delay?!

    The man who accurately predicted four market crashes to the exact date each time has told Business Insider about three more dates to worry about.
    Sandy Jadeja is a technical analyst and chief market strategist at Core Spreads.
    Technical analysts look at charts to pinpoint patterns in various markets and asset classes. From that, they forecast which direction prices are likely to move.
    They can’t tell you the reasons why there will be a big market movement, only that there is going to be one.
    He now warns that the following dates spell trouble for the Dow Jones in the US that could spread to other markets.
    1. Between August 26 and August 30, 2016.
    2. September 26, 2016.
    3. October 20, 2016.
    “We have interesting times ahead of us. We are dealing with issues on so many levels from economic uncertainty in the financial markets, including currencies and commodities as well as the rising house prices we have seen,” said Jadeja in an interview.
