    As an Anarchist I sometimes get confused for a Communist, and who in this day is not an avowed Socialist even if you maybe of the Corporate variety, anyway I love cycling the 15mins to work. A glorious way to start the day in Christchurch.

  • Hard News: The company of strangers,

    Went to the doctor today. Had to have a face to mask meeting. The doctor masked up. Text from my car on arrival. All a bit high security.
    I had a brief exchange on the way in as an elderly gentleman reminiscing about the polio lock down in the 40s.
    I hope everyone in this little community are doing OK.

    Any word on the drug impairment testing set for driving and working?

    As NZ seeks to avoid a depression through state infrastructure works, movement on the zero tolerance test currently in place would be meaningful.

    That explains how my RSA Facebook feed had a New Conservative slick ANZAC video appear a couple of days age.
    FYI my RSA have also shared British National Party promo veterans videos, before disavowing racism and ending their feeds.

    Labour has come to the party for the homeless. Great work and commitment to look after the homeless during and after the Covid-19 crisis.

    The question is then what will follow?
    All efforts to date are to keep riding the dead horse of capitalism.
    TINA - there is no alternate.
    Who is offering an alternative to our current system, certainly not Grant Robertson. He is the cheif surgeon trying to revive capitalism.
    And that's Prebbles victory.

    Indeed a victory for right wing economic policy, even as everything receives state intervention supports from capitalist businesses and workers alike. Ironic eh!

  • Hard News: Together Alone,

    Saw the PMs Covid-19 briefing today.
    She's doing a fine job, but from the party that brought you the 40hour week. I found it interesting that her praise for cleaners was in working 13hour days for the Police.
    It says alot about the Police that they encourage this working environment and how far left the Labour Party are that they reward it.
    I've got a collection of poems entitled "The 70 hour working week". The short story is I ended up in the Hillmorton Hotel and I can't fault their service. I'm working on publishing soon.
    Labour isn't the workers party. I looked to the Greens but find them mostly silent, at least to my emails.

  • Access: Bubble of One,

    Thank you Michelle,
    I recently lost my Mum to cancer at New Year's and am glad it didn't happen at this time. It's a scary time with a few other family with compromised health.
    I'm on Billy Bragg's Facebook page. He's called those open economy crew "Covid Collaborators".
    All the best.
    Michael

    True that and what we did to Samoa 22% death rate due to indifference towards the captured colony amounts to a war crime.
