  1. This should be fun, good to see Winston on there.

    I’ve only been watching for about 5 months… Greens or Labour going to actually turn up any time soon?

    • As someone who has listened for over a year, they don’t tend to. Very occasionally. Not clear if this is because they’re not invited, or if they don’t want to show up. Would love answers from Bomber.

      Often that side of the aisle is represented by union members.

    • Anker you are an idiot, bordering right wing retard. For you, balance is a pair of shoes

    • Agree, just the blanket progressive well its complicated or these things take time.

      I note Singapore had its highest A Level results (Yr 13) at 93.6% since 2006 in 2021 and again at 2022 93.4. But Simon says everyone around the world is struggling with attendance and results post Covid. ie: We and our policies are not accountable.

      ‘Erudite sophistry’ is the concept that springs to mind when I think of Simon Wilson.

    • I was just talking to Andrew Kingston the other day, and he was telling me that secretly he thinks Damien is an insecure, know-it-all bitch, with an opinion on everything, and who has a habit of disagreeing for the sake of it in shock jock fashion.
      The jailhouse boys said rumour has it he’s in a secret bromance with Davey Eeyore Seymour coveting him as his bitch.
      Andrew is possibly just a bit jealous but as long as we can keep Damien in the media and relevant, we can do our bit to minimising the burden on counselling services who’re in short supply

      • Translation: I don’t like intelligent people who make thoughtful arguments I can’t refute. So I just dish them instead.

  2. Your rant for90 seconds was bloody brilliant Martyn. Best thing ever.

    Absolutely outrageous that telcos are endorsing Lals message

  3. Unfortunately Simon is like a lot of my Labour voting friends, so invested in being seen as a progressive they cant see the wood for the trees. They exclusively still maintain the mainstream media is the bastion of all truth and rattle round in an echo chamber of vested corporate interest and lies.

  4. Simon trying to tell Winston what it was like growing up as Māori In the 40’s 50’s 60’s and Winnie slapping him sideways was what we all needed to see.
