Open Forum – Wednesday

This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts.

Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts.Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria.

Free speech is an important principle here but some people who might pose a risk to the site will have to keep going through moderation due to abuses by a small number of malicious people.

A wide variety of topics and views are encouraged and welcomed, but some topics and some extremes may not be appropriate nor allowed.

    Flapper lips Hoskings sounded a bit panicky during his usual rant this morning and you cannot argue with that

    hey lurch over here!!
    Is this what you mean about why Hoskings got in a flap?

    Hoskings … “What about the argument that the Labour Party has lost its way?”,
    JA .. “You mean YOUR argument, Mike.”

    Hosking … “Explain this to me I can’t get my head around this”
    JA … “There’s plenty you can’t get your head around MIKE …hehe”

    Yep she’s my kind of girl … got a good throat punch.

              Righto. Mustapha Shuft. I’ll get back to you.
              This Jacinda thing, Lurch. It’s not good.
              Greg O will be crying in his beer.
              He’ll be hoping he can just scrape in on an unjustifiably optimistic Jacinda-related bounce in the polls & that it doesn’t all turn to custard until the New Year.

              Probably. Silly old duffer. The Mrs & the dogs probably make all the important decisions at his place.

              Nah, possum. He’s out picking flowers to put in his hair so he can dance around his bird bath singing “La la la, Jacinda spring is here”.

              outlandish comment …ok maybe not Outlandish … maybe just,
              Out There. Thank Goodness you didn’t say Naked as well.
              Would take extra strength Janola to bleach that picture. EEK!

            Not sure how you got the connection except at the end of that one, possum. But I liked the next one it threw up at me:

              Pic looks ok to me Al.

              Righto – sis – report-back:
              Been to NW ‘for supplies’
              ‘Hinemoa’ is married, to a prison officer! 33 years.
              Got 8 sisters. None of them are single ☹️
              Won’t leave her husband for me ‘because that would make him happy!’
              Loved being told she was ‘gorgeous’ – “I’ll take that anytime I can get it” she said.
              So – no luck there – but I’ve still got the moves! 😎 👍🏼

              How the heck did you get into the desert in those shoes, Possum? And the lead is supposed to go on the horse, not your leg.

    Jesus ! Just had a call from some Asian chap called Mark at the *Windows Technical Department* saying they were getting an urgent notification of a problem with my computer!

    I said I was a bit puzzled because I was using an Apple iPad and he said “Yes, but…” & I accidentally cut him off! Don’t have landlne caller ID or last number recording.

    Hope my iPad’s ok 😮

      Couldn’t you put him in touch with Svetlana? Sounds like they have something in common.

    Question Time.
    Q1. James Shaw – to Bill – he aced it. That land swap Court Decision thing.

    Q2. Jacinda – housing affordability. Bill & her head to head. See how it goes. Speakers told everyone to quieten down. Some in National’s being a loudmouth, dunno who.

        Reckon the Labour party will figure out that electing a leader that none of his team wanted was not a good idea?
