The Daily Blog Open Mic – Sunday – 7th June 2020


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.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. This is such deceptive title compared to the actual text of the Vance interview with Shaw!

    “While NZ First will position themselves as a ‘handbrake’ on radical reform, the Greens election campaign will centre on pushing the Government to go “further and faster”.

    “There are things that we could have done in the last two-and-a-half years that we have been prevented from doing together,” Shaw says. “If I have a frustration with Labour, it’s that they could have spent more political capital than they have”.”

    But the main thing I got from the article was the reminder of the pro-lifer nutter who fractured Shaw’s eyesocket last year. It was the day before the Christchurch shootings, so had slipped my mind. That was a bit of a surprise because it had been the female GP MPs getting the death threats.

    His response at the time was very; “keep calm and carry on”, but there is a bit in the Vance interview that reads a bit like a description of PTSD triggered by similar body language:

    “Over his shoulder, there was a guy who was acting quite erratically. [Dave] asked me a question, and God knows what it was. I couldn’t form a coherent sentence.”
