    There is still so much weirdness out there to gay citizens and no, it’s not good or healthy but this is the problem of G.R. It’s not good but I don’t think our press are mature enough to handle him fairly. It sucks.

    If that is correct, then the solution is that the Labour Party stops wanting to dominate parliament as its sprimary objective. And that they make an asserted effort to demonstrate a commitment to the true spirit of MMP. Which could lead to things like small coalition partners introducing subsidized dental care.

    Of course, there has to be a first one, but it would be a bit odd ditching an orthodox policy like CGT because it was too strange and challenging for voters but then adopting UBI.

    That’s not difficult, one is a tax, the other
    one is the other thing.

    OMG, The Labour Party puts a selection process into place, that is as democratic as the party wants. Following that process the party selects a leader. I can’t for the life of me see the problem.

    The whole country democratically elected the current parlament, and I do see problems in that. I don't think it was a good choice.

    My recollection is of a decent and kind young man, who was prepared to work hard and didn’t hog the limelight for the sake of it.

    That’s reasuring. I hope he has a better attitude than his predecessor, toward coalition partners, who represent actual people, with complementary ideals.

    And that has absolutely nothing to do with his sexuality.

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race,

    but I was hoping Labour might choose someone intelligent and articulate with a sense of humour. Someone capable of giving Key a run for his money.

    Yes right, but there market research probably told half of them that the customer dosn’t want that, if that guy isn’t seen to be socially conservative. And they listened. That and mabe the polls probably tell them that some of there pollicys are a bit to economically left wing. Hence, the talk about ditching policy’s, such as capital gains tax, which thay them selves have argued, are important. But they elected a new leader who is, wait for it, Pragmatic :(

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race,

    Its apparent to me, that the Labour party's lack of support problems are bigger than there leader. I might have to spoil my voting paper next election, or vote for the Greens.

  • Hard News: LATE: The Age of Slacktivism, in reply to Sacha,

    Somewhat tired of this old chestnut. There is nothing more real about a street than an online community.

    Tell me about it. The resolution out there on the street is an old 2.0 joke:)
