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, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. Children who are unvaccinated are able to play school sports so what is the point of parents getting their children vaccinated when they can come home with the virus and give it to the adults who may be at greater risk due to underlying health conditions. On that note those adults at a greater risks would be better of not sending their kids to school. I know it is unfair to prevent unvaccinated children from playing school sports but it is equally unfair for those who have chosen to protect their entire whanau.

    • The problem is people throwing thoughts and ideals and beliefs at a real, present disabling virus. Song from Ella Fitzgerald oldie- Somethings Gotta Give

      Something’s Gotta Give
      Johnny Mercer
      When an irresistible force such as you
      Meets an old immovable object like me
      You can bet just as sure as you live
      Something’s gotta give…

      Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight it with all of our might
      Chances are some heavenly star-spangled night
      We’ll find out just as sure as we live
      Something’s gotta give

  2. I’m watching Parliament Protest Porn at the moment while waiting for my to connect to Smooth.Jazz Monterray and Radio Schizoid – in the absence of any other decent stuff as a media consumer in this space going forward, I might have to have a lay down and turn on ConcertFM.
    Oh, and on another audio-visual device, I have QT in progress (just to give me hope for transformation and change – it hasn’t worked so far)

  3. The latest I have seen from Jonathan Pie is a mock interview for the New York Times on Boris Johnson’s transgressions of which there are many. Two piss-ups on the night before the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral which was limited by Covid requirements which Boris himself didn’t keep, amongst them. However one should remember Jonathan says, that he was educated with large doses of entitlement” ‘ Boris comes from a long succession of posh, bumbling, upper-class idiots eho were destined for greatness because no-one has ever told them or will tell them they’re not. Boris went to Eton a sort of Hogwarts for wankers, where you get taught Latin and tax avoidance whilst wearing full evening dress. These people have never spoken to a real person in their life, apart from their chauffeur.’
    Surely this is all hyperbole? (If you don’t know what hyperbole means then you probably haven’t gone to the right school.) Buy now the definitive book for the present.
    In Posh Boys: How the English Public Schools Ruin Britain, Robert Verkaik explores the role that public schooling plays in reproducing inequality in Britain, showing how public schools enable wealthy families to pass down their privilege to their children who subsequently have greater access to the most lucrative and …3/06/2019
