    Will Mr Littles negative gearing policy have any effect on national MP Nathan Guys interest in 21 properties??

      Maybe, but when Mikey was quizzing Andy, he admitted in some fashion I don’t understand, that mum and dad investors would initially also be roped in by his policy.

      Then Mikey interviewed Billy English. You may have heard that interview, Lurchy.? The PM was chuckling when asked about tax cuts in the budget. He sounded very confident. I would suggest you get ready for… THREE MORE YEARS!

          Work hard and never follow Gezza’s lead of not making predictions.Then maybe, one day, you may share the limelight with me. Come to the Right side with me, Lurchy. Do you really want to wind up with other scruffy ferals when Andy concedes on election night at Labour HQ ?

      Fact or fake? A bit of making up going on here and it may not have been in the studio.

      It’s easy for media to cherry pick txts, tweets and emails, what they choose to publicise is often curious, but I don’t think there’s any proof any are made up in the studio. Some certainly sound made up in political PR offices.

          Let me guess…you were one of the 22,000 hate-filled Lefties who petitioned for Mikey to be sacked.

          Ever wondered why Righties couldn’t even gather 3 votes to have Johnny Campbell removed? It’s all in the way people think….and vote, Lurchy.

            I can’t stand Mike H, but would be surprised if he was able to get away with inventing stories and passing them off as news.

    Please tell me that there isn’t a little pump/siphon that removes 1/3 of what a person has just eaten-I’d love THAT to be fake news.. What is the point ???? Eat 1/3 less. These seem a waste of money-and an appalling waste of food.

    Good day for reading inside with a nice fire going. And my book “The Body Keeps the Score” is a fascinating account of a life dedicated to understanding and treating PTSD. It teaches so much about our brains and bodies and how emotions work via the discoveries he and other scientists of multiple disciplines have made along the way. Highly recommended.
