    I bet if Campbell live still existed we would hear about this shipment of live sheep and cows
    Don't we have a law against this? It would seem if MPI slap the word "breeding" before sheep, then they can circumvent the law . 3 times ,we know of. :(

    TV3 has made it's own bed. They will have to do a little more than advertise 'dancing with the stars' or Paul Henry to prove their worthiness to me. We have been fed a diet of PR dressed up as journalism for so long now ,I could blame that for 3's direction and if so that is just lazy. The likes of the "gotcha" reporting from Gower for one, says also to me that the journalist is not non partisan anyway. His rant being an example of that.
    Nah, TV3 deserve a kick up the ass. How about TVNZ are state owned with expectations, until their charter changes, their hands are tied, TV3 had a chance to make a stand and didn't. Mark Jennings is between a rock and a hard place. This is it. People have spoken and for once it has had it's point made. Power to the people, just not John Key, he has too much.

    I lived in Sydney for 11 years. Worked in Redfern, central city and other areas. Know what you mean, came home disillusioned. So tired of the prejudice..

    An example that irks me in society.
    T'other night on the news some doc had a medical tribunal hearing over his prescription of drugs for sports people regarding performance problems. He was issuing these pills for hormone enhancement for an enormous range of problems many of which were not related to the drugs ability. As he left this hearing he walked chatty with his lawyer to the escalator where a young woman was also approaching. She saw the 2 of them and stood aside so they could walk in front of her to embark on the escalator. WHY?? She was first.

    like thinking you are great on your bike forgetting about the tail wind going your way, you just don't notice it
    I haven't worded as well as she does but it is a good analogy

    You are not always aware of how easy your life is thanks to race etc

    Ok as a brown person, it feels more like the tyres are flat on your bike, you get them repaired and check it out, all good ,go into pay the bicycle repair man and someone comes along when you are in the shop and slashes the tyres. The repair man says ''well they were fine when you checked them" another $10 to fix them now. One step forward two steps back.
    Imagine being shy or autistic while not being white. No win ever.

    I loathe the pointscoring that goes on around some discussions of privilege

    What are they? Genuinely interested in what you interpret them as.
