  • Speaker: Abortion: morality and health, in reply to kiwi_guy,

    I should hope it is made harder to have a baby on the DPB

    Do you know anything about the DPB or are you just spouting your problem with solo mothers.
    The DPB is a benefit that the father of the child, when identified, pays a considerable amount towards.The parents not being together may just be the best outcome for that child. That the DPB is now fraught with restrictive rules to access it shows that this Government does not care that a kid is fed, clothed or allowed time with the parent. Abortion for many woman is the best outcome for the bloody planet and it should be people like you that applauds a woman who makes such a decision. As Moz suggests morality is out the window with the Government.
    And, who the hell gives you the right to say rape should be an abortion right? No, rape just shouldn't fucking happen. Lets address that societal issue first before some kiwi guy gets to decide what a woman's allowed.

  • Hard News: Snowden and New Zealand, in reply to Alfie,

    I urge you to read Glenn Greenwald's take on the claims.

    Thank God for real journalism.

    The comments after Mr Greenwald's article reads like the comments in the Herald as soon as there is anything questioning the Government. They start out in support then the team is sent in to denigrate Labour or Greens. Interesting list of associates in media tied to the Obama Administration.

  • Hard News: A dramatic and unremarkable decision, in reply to Kay,

    Thank you Kay. I had read about the surgery somewhere and know that all options would be considered. It will be fantastic if Alex has some help from Elixinol though. I would suggest now ,if that is not helpful, his family could seek other derivatives from Dunne.

    Here's one for Steven Crawford to ponder.

  • Hard News: A dramatic and unremarkable decision, in reply to Russell Brown,

    He actually didn't need to go charging around with a firehose.

    But, he's a politician.

  • Hard News: A dramatic and unremarkable decision,

    Off topic but slightly on, Isn't it possible to operate and remove the part affected that causes the seizures. The bit upthread also about Docs being concerned he might awaken from his coma slightly high sounds like a pathetic excuse. I woke from my coma and was permanently medicated on god knows what (although t'other will know) and I'd spend time telling my Dad just what my hallucinations were . It became a bit of fun after a while. So really the Doctors are willing and able to prescribe drugs that get you high every time it suits. Now, I'm a perfect example of coma to seizures to completely normal human being albeit a few permanent pains... which marijuana alleviates. hah!

    ETA, Methinks Peter Dunne is starting to understand that sensible debate should gain traction ,methinks the likes of RB's (Brown and Bell) have assisted him in that decision. I'd say kudos to Dunne when he employs these 2 to head the Panel for discussion on Marijuana reform with the view to follow along the lines of decriminalisation first.

  • Hard News: Campbell interviewed, in reply to Alfie,

    Why all the secrecy surrounding this shipment? Are the Nats bribing a Mexican billionaire this time?

    Speaking of secrecy, I note that the Herald has yet to run the story, even though it's been on the front page of Stuff all afternoon.

    I noticed the lack of Herald coverage too. I guess it is now officially a propaganda paper for National Press releases. Otherwise their journalists are incompetent or lazy. Fisher keeps plugging away tho' and I like Dita, that's it.
    I emailed Jo Goodhew, her area of portfolio and her area, about the shipment. I await her weasle words but don't hold me breath. seems any law can be broken as long as they support National

  • Hard News: Campbell interviewed,

    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. :(
