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.

    Donald Trump DOSNT seem to like China, Russia,South Korea,Canada, Mexico in fact this OLD man struggles to form relationships with people and countries.The next president will have his work cut out to make the world respect the USA again and being the world’s bully isn’t a good start.

    Acts policy of giving certain teachers $20000 for being exceptional and leave their union is so full of holes if it was a boat it would sink.An example a teacher a good friend of the principal rewarded,another example if say 1 teacher rewarded in a school with say 9 other teachers the rewarded teacher would be on their own with No support from the others absolutely on their own if they need help with a pupil say.The school system would collape quickly

      The school system has collapsed, Lurchy. We are proof of that. Fear not. It will never come to pass. Result: another generation of dumbos ready to vote for the Cult Of Personality.

    Feral Leftie? Feral Greenie? Who attacked the feral Nick Smith.? A man who goes berserk when he meets delegations to his office.

    No doubt about, like Lefties and rust…karma never sleeps.

      I feel sorry for karma’s partner, corks. She must be difficult to live with. Pretty sure my mrs read in a Women’s mag once that ali mau said simon dallow was like that, up all night.

    These past few mornings I have woken up in a sweat. I don’t know who I fear the most- Kim Un Dun, or Jacinda.

    One could disrupt my supply of proprietary health supplements I source from overseas. The other could have Auckland looking like Pyongyang within the three years she’s is in office.

        Any damage to China or Russia VERY bad for USA plus China will support NK to the end as China will never allow USA camped on their border like whats happened to Russia,and that’s not going to end good for some country in that region.NK dosnt want to become another Syria or Iraqi attacked by the USA and ruined hence their bomb.

          Everything you say is probably right. However, America has held off long enough. You can’t tell me China or North Korea would put up with similar crap from America.

          So what does American get from this situation? They get the moral high ground; a chance via a proxy war to test different strategies and weapons. A chance to relieve pressure in the China sea, and hopefully send a message to China of what America is capable of( it could also be vice versa)

      No, no, this simply can’t be true! I’ve read Expert Opinion on Your NZ that it’s THE LEFT that are “feral” and “nasty”.

      Ah, that mad obession for upticks and downticks so many on this blog have.

      What’s that famous quote from Doris Lessing? ”’small things amuse small minds.”

      My suggestion to Penny…don’t go there if you don’t want to be abused. Hell, she could rake 100 upticks in 5 seconds at The Standard.

    Just seen Mikey and the crew do a snow job on the Black Power Gang. Saw my Cuzzie shuffling into the Wharenui for a little middle-class piss taking. In the real world he deals with his problems using his hobbies like a surgeon wielding a scalpel.

    Loved Eugene’s korero. That boy is a natural PR guru.
