It really annoys me all the discussion about winners and losers in the debate
It wasn't a debate, it was an interview. JC should have been there to ask questions to elicit facts, basic journalistic skill.
True, I wonder if Mazda know how many sales they make to National voters.
The other aspect to this is what's the damage to JC and the Campbell Live team?
Timing wise, could it be worse having an off game just as the new ownership starts to take shape?
Whoever instructed him to use
"ok, let me address those points one by one"
is a genius, it doesn’t allow the interviewer to then interrupt without appearing rude and makes it appear that he has a valid answer to the all the questions, whether he does or not….
I think it started here.....
"or create a disincentive that only applies to the latter, such as targeted CGT."
Which of course we already have but don't enforce very often....
I'd be interested to know what the 3 MP's responses were a few weeks ago? In particular Ardern and Upston.
My take is that "cheap" money readily available is the driver on prices, turn the tap off or increase the interest rates and the market will change.
Unfortunately the low interest rates are a double edge sword for first home buyers because they're also available to folk with existing equity who are better positioned to leverage it.
Not sure what the answer is but I don't think this policy is it, might be a few votes in it though.
It's seems to be a fairly standard tactic for the Police to provide Defense lawyers with documents in the most unusable format possible as part of Discovery in Court proceedings.
I'm sure this adds to the Legal Aid costs as the Defense has to wade through the documents, only the big outfits have the resources to even attempt to do anything with them.
DocumentCloud looks interesting
I thought Football overtook Rugby in NZ for participation numbers years ago, participation and viewing (paying for a sky subscription) are 2 different matters however.
It's fair to say the mechanism for providing feedback from September will be more involved than the current mechanisms of sending an email though.
It's going to be akin to a Board of Inquiry, Environment Court Hearing including cross examination.
That's likely to put off most punters except those will a real axe to grind.
