    When can we vote for the likes of Gen Zero... they'd actually make a positive difference, the endless rearranging of chairs by our two major political parties isn't working

  • Up Front: What Sorry Looks Like,

    I don't think he's sorry for anything except how his behaviour has made him appear to some - i.e. he's sorry he got outed, caught and convicted

    He's so not sorry he will, with his employers approval, use his abuse as a means to promote himself and his employer through a non apology

  • 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

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

    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

    why this person ceased blogging is beyond me given the material on offer each and every day
