The Daily Blog Open Mic – 10th April 2024


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.

All in all, TDB gives punters a very, very, very wide space to comment in but we won’t bother with out right lies or gleeful malice. We leave that to the Herald comment section.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist abuse, homophobic abuse, racist abuse, anti-muslim abuse, transphobic abuse, 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. Big businesses like Countdown/Woolworths who coerce shoppers into self-checking, have themselves largely to blame when shoplifters skedaddle with unpaid goods. If they had streamlined egresses with paid checkout operators it couldn’t happen the way that it does. They can afford to do this.

  2. Chris Penk (Minister for Land Information) recently said overseas investment is an important part of the government’s plan to rebuild the economy.

    Yet, investment seeks larger returns.

    Therefore, how is more foreign control of our previously owned assets/resources and larger returns heading offshore going to rebuild our economy?

  3. Now that New Shub is fucked and TVNZ is ‘rightsizing’ in this media space, going forward:
    How many line managers and senior masters of the Universe are redundant?
    And do the CEO’s warrant such handsome remuneration given their “right-sized” status given their responsibilities are not as onerous as once they were. I mean they’ve got far fewer plebians and entities to ‘compete with’ in this space.
    On the bright side, TVNZ could get Wilson Parking to manage some basement parking freed up by redundancies. (except I forgot, they’re not freeing up any pigs at the trough spaces)

  4. We have sold out our NZ entity to unfriendly powers. Kiwibank can’t even keep a desk in a superette in a small tourist spot in one of the regions. I am so sick of this rubbish from overpaid fatheads male and female, and every political party; we have to coalesce to ensure we have a country that works for us, in a reciprocal way. A country that sticks together ticks together or something.
