    David, have you looked at the youth-not-voting issue compared with other elections? I'd be interested to know if political engagement increases with age, or if it's more a generational thing.

    This isn’t a plant, but a building that has recently been restored, and emerged from its scaffolding. Jetty St, Dunedin.

    I’m all for such projects getting a fast track, for whatever reason. On the other, it’s like “Sorry, no time to listen to the people we’re ostensibly designing this project for!

    Chch people are now familiar with this procedure. Special powers are not used for good. Public and/or expert opinion is gathered so it can be disregarded.

  • Speaker: Why we need to stop talking…, in reply to SHG,

    There’s a clear inequality but I don’t give a shit about it. And I don’t see why I SHOULD give a shit about it.

    Are you, or is anyone you know, on a benefit, minimum wage, or studying? Do you have a disability? Are you a sole parent, or on an average wage wanting to buy a house of your own? Do you have access to healthcare? Might you ever need surgery? Do you ever plan to retire? Will you ever need childcare, or schooling for your children? Do you want criminals to be rehabilitated before they are released back into the community?

    If any of these situations could apply to you or those dear to you, you should care about inequality.

    Also, many of us want every person in NZ to have a chance of a good, productive life. Accepting inequality means we accept that only some of us should have that chance.

    This song also goes back a few years, but still gives me the shivers. From the devastating film London to Brighton. From the album Who Needs Actions When You Got Words.

    [sorry, digression]
