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. Auckland. A tale of two towers.

    Auckland Council’s total debt has hit $13.2b!! There is no way Aucklanders can bail out the council from this debt mountain when the income of $1.5b from rates. Minus $500m per year for interest-alone payment.

    Eke Panuku has firesales of properties every week and sells them off dirt cheap to the chairman of Eke Panukus mates! Eg. Council carpark in downtown; $40m for a 125-year lease for a twin tower project worth $600m+. Another loss-making venture for Auckland ratepayers. Let’s just hope the postal addresses for the Twin Towers aren’t ‘9’ & ’11’.

    Now now, get footprints of famous and wonderful NZs in concrete before we ourselves get annihilated. (Not near Parliament Buildings as that will probably be bombed as a move to disorient us. But somewhere meaningful and lasting.) Sid Grauman style?
    What place would Maori think for this? Would Len Lye be on the right path?

  3. ‘Aboot’ Trotter. The Gaza crisis is a litmus test of the Left according to him — if you don’t support Israel you’re not Left! Strange man with a great capacity for lyricality. I’m still not sure I heard it right. Why I don’t go over there now.

    He’s your friend, Martyn, so you won’t pipe up. You also have gone off into deadends but you’re the best of the ‘Left’ blogs. Yep, I’m disappointed in all of you. The straight line of truth would make youse Corbyn, Reich, Chomsky or Sanders. Instead of diminishing audiences.
