everyone's driving to Levin
Have you been to Levin? Everyone certainly isn't driving there..
As far as I can see Transmission Gully is only of use to a small number of (possibly SUV driving) commuters from Paekakariki and points north to Wellington. Who value their creature comforts too much to use the perfectly adequate train service.
I drive that road less than 10 times a year and can live with the delays. Especially now I've found a way round Otaki...
But it pays to remember that general elections are won and lost in Auckland's dormitory suburbs.
Under MMP? Surely now it's just as important to get a vote in Haast as in Wellington Central?
I guess that Cat Power record allows one to like Oasis without the stigma. Using Ableton you can play it at the same speed as the original, too (but it only lasts 1:30).

Telecom were genuinely a more Kiwi switched on hip with the current cultural gesalt company
They're a corporation with majority overseas shareholding. Like DB Breweries, Watties and TradeMe.

the poor farmer in question went to the field on his property right next to a field of transgenic RR plants. He then sprayed a strip of the area with roundup hoping that there might be some stray transgenic seed, and he found some. That was all fine.
Then he took those seed and bulked them up by planting them out and spraying again until he had enough to plant his own field. That was NOT fine.
The seeds got leaked onto his land. As far as I'm concerned, if you're going to leak lifeforms into the ecosystem, then you can't claim rights over those lifeforms.
This technology shouldn't be being developed by private business. Insofar as it needs to be pursued, it should be done by research bodies under national control, with the results available to all.
"bored of" is a mistranscription of a mispronunciation.
WTF is a 'Banks-O-Mander'
A scheme such that, even though ACT have maybe 4% support in Auckland, their candidate gets complete control over the council.
Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. If I can extend that to Philip Field, perhaps you can extend the same to Lee?
Field? He's guilty as. Hasn't he been hung yet?
