    Thi is a balanced assessment of the bombing of syria at present as it achieved nothing but pain and misery for syrian citizens only.

    No wonder why the US are now very hated elsewhere what were they thinking?

    Unfortunately, we have nothing in New Zealand like Labor Notes in the United States. Last weekend’s Chicago conference drew over 3,000 union activists to discuss the state of the US labor movement and how workers can fight the growing attacks on pay, conditions and rights.

    One of the participants wrote the following report for Redline blog:

    Voting alert.

    I think is that National are trying to wind us all up in an attempt to get some of us to vote National in the upcoming by-election coming.

    2018 NORTHCOTE BY-ELECTION
    The Northcote by-election will take place on Saturday 9 June 2018. Information about where and when to vote in the Northcote by-election will be available here from Tuesday 15 May.

    I heard on Tonights news that NZ First and greens are not entering this by-election as they said labour had a good chance of winning this election.

    So the National trolls are coming thick and both on The Standard and The Daily Blog fast now ahead of this bi-election.

    So we have to double our efforts to sell the positive word of the coalition government to stop National trolls trying to influence this election result.
