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. If writing to Grant Robertson, he is gay isn’t he?, maybe quote Oscar Wilde as one of his own with experience of that particular inclination in the world may have more resonance with him.
    These struck me as being very witty and poignant:
    “True friends stab you in the front.”
    “Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
    “My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death; one or the other.”
    “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that’s all.
    “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
    “I think that God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his abilities.”
    “It takes a great deal of courage to see the world in all its tainted glory, and still to love it.”

  2. Please remove this. I prick you in the front and pat you on your back, Martyn. Truth and honesty. I definitely know where you come from emotionally. My only life is water running over the gills, going out into the world everyday. Today: having to shit in a field because the lady had too many dogs in her home, talking to a fat man without a top balancing fast food on his chest, maintaining a property for an ICU doctor married to an anti-covid/greenie next door to a dog that never ceased to bark over the hour, an enjoyable informative discuss with a 90-year-old married to a guy from Stromboli about my next customer who I call a Taonga o Tairawhiti. Then finally home and with no good reason my worst herbicide spraying down my bottom as little kids shouted out to me ‘loser’.
