    so you will be voting for the party that promises a lake? or maybe a canal rather than a motorway?

  • Southerly: Dear Dr Bollard,

    Tim: yes - in fact with a good southerly liquid nitrogen is unnecessary and a simple trepanation will suffice

    Ms Lee is obviously wrong - the new motorway will make it easier for .....

    I suspect they're mostly worried that Manakau will go and spend all that it invested/saved in Auckland Airport etc on something like swimming pools or some other local amenities before the rest of Auckland can get their hands on it

    National decided to flirt
    with winning the seat Mt Albert
    but then they nixed the tunnel
    which meant traffic will funnel
    thru houses and parks, it will hurt

    When the Honourable Mr Hyde
    Decided Auckland ought to be tied
    He rushed out a horrible bill
    So the local councils would chill
    Spending their savings denied

    well every time I bring up the issue with green party members I get shut out - even by people who are good friends - I advocate a point in the middle ground that's still very very close to the green side of things

    sigh - one can be in favour of careful, responsible research in GE with enormous safeguards and still be against things like round-up-ready things and their ilk

    BT's an interesting case - it's 'natural' to the extent that organic farmers can use it ... so now people are GEing it into crops - a mistake IMHO because the bugs will evolve and the organic farmers will be worse off.

    I think there are lot of people who are against a lot of GE-in-practice but are not religiously against GE by itself - and we feel shut out of the Greens

    Eddie/Giovanni/Kyle: me too I probably would join too if it weren't for the GE thing - I'm all for holding people who are doing GE's feet to the fire and making them being extra careful and do the right thing - but an outright ban seems silly to me

    The "890Mb pdf" actually does contain the maps you want and isn't really that big
