  • Polity: A short history of half-baked…, in reply to andrew001,

    rather than blaming the previous govt (the default) or passing off the problem due to you know history... this govt could have, you know, given many people a brighter future but they've consistently denied any problem existed, actively campaigned against all of labours and other parties plans to address the housing crisis (CGT, Kiwibuild) and now are only considering options they've borrowed from those other parties

    This govt can wear that blame for they have earnt it

  • Polity: Flaccid balloon, mite-ridden bees,

    I'm interested in what the 54 million was spent on?

    If you want a gotcha surely this is the area on which to focus - especially given how the 26 million spent on the flag referendum caused such outrage from certain quarters, pointing out Smith's failings is a road to frustration on most levels, except perhaps the financial

    I see what the local stores are doing as the most positive thing for the ongoing nature of the day - making it about the stores and putting on a great day

    it was and always should have been Record Store Day not record release day, the exclusives took over much to the dismay of all bar a few profiteers

    well done local stores!

  • Hard News: About the King's Arms (updated), in reply to Russell Brown,

    I guess the crucial element to all of this is if and when Maureen and partners sell up who could even consider purchasing the place and continuing it on as a venue - the purchase price alone, I would imagine, would render any venue related ongoing revenue stream as simply too little

    This is an example of the real costs of current Auckland housing/land prices and the potential impacts on something we hold dear

  • Hard News: Media Take: Radio Radio, in reply to Robert Harvey,

    Reef Radio sounds awesome (goons fan here), I really appreciate how the regulators allowed the LPFM stations to flourish in their very limited by constraints manner

  • Polity: The Taxpayers' Union rides again!,

    Tax Payers Union, Family First et al... show the power fringe lobby groups have to promote their agenda through a under resourced media and gain public acceptance

    Is there any effective means to combat how they operate, as logic, facts and research seems to fail?

  • Polity: Let the big lies flow,

    shine away Rob - however here you talk to those who can see through spin, Labour's continuing problem is to get to those who believe the media regurgitation of what they're told and press released

    Now the flag is done I'm growingly bitter that for all that transpired we are no closer to knowing if NZ wanted a new flag... and angry that Key couldn't just start the process and claim victory at the end regardless of result... potentially a victory with the oppositions help, instead we've a bloody stupid waste of time for all

  • Polity: Home-spun non-truths, in reply to Rob Salmond,

    agree in the do it right, my fear is this is exciting policy and change in direction... the catalyst for so much other stuff that could radically change the nature of our society and economic framework... and while I get excited for those that will benefit from this I am also weary as I am still waiting for the much talked about knowledge economy...

    Like others have said - Labour really need to get with the Greens, sure have your own policy and them theirs (both should be almost the same) but have a united front
