Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

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. How do we have reckons that the 2020 Government will go down in history @team?
    My reckons are, (in this space, going forward) that domestically they’ll be remembered as the government of good intentions, unintended quinseqinces and non-delivery.
    And a bigly reason for it is down to its use of consultants dressing themselves up as independent advisors.
    And all when given an unprecedented mandate to have done something useful.
    Time is running out Chippy

    • I disagree that there were only 5 unintended (quin)consequences. You are being far too soft OwT on the present gummint, and indeed on every other one probably since Adam was a cow-boy.


    Everyone knows that before anything gets done on the ground level, you start with a clear area to work with – more efficient. Remember that thinker Aldous Huxley said that our drive for efficiency would be our downfall. And Marlborough has proved it – down fell the trees.

    Cars couldn’t be parked near them, or every second tree be left – that would spoil their tidy housekeeping. Bugger the climate change, heat etc. Now is what matters – trees can be planted in the future if needed. Can’t you hear the reasoning (excuses).

  3. This could be interesting

    It may be a fractious union, but neither democracy nor capitalism can survive without the other, says financial journalist, Martin Wolf
    Wolf argues reform, not revolution is needed to patch up this relationship in his new book The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism.
    It became obvious about 15 to 20 years ago that there were serious structural problems in the world economy, he told Jesse Mulligan.

    This guy only diddled $1.5 million tax or that’s all that they can pin on him. I can’t believe they are picking on this poor property speculator for that amount of money. If he didn’t have a vineyard I’d say it was chickenfeed. A million to these people is just pocket money.

    Maybe they are not top people to have here but they have found the right code. Let’s change the code and the password too. I’m always having trouble with those, it certainly slows you down. NZ needs slowing down I reckon. Others may have different reckons I realise.
