    Today in the NZ Herald at last some one is asking
    Why No one is speaking about rising food prices in this election.
    Grow your own veges for a start. Plant a fruit forest.
    In pots if you have to, if your back yard is concrete

    I watched Garner on TV3 ‘AM show’ with a huge smirk, asking ‘wasn’t the 57-0 massacre of the Boks.. the best match ever ?’ (paraphrase) to which one commentator (name ?) said “NO.. I actually prefer it when both teams show up to play & its a close contest !” (I agree 100%) then Garner.. stopped & jumped off the bandwagon & said ‘actually I think you’re right’..

    some folks are just so narrow minded & think ABs thrashing every other side makes for good SPORT.. “boring” sez I&I… again

      You are limp wristed like Garner, Zedd. Completely destroying an enemy is the name of the game. Get a beer; get a steak… and man up! What the hell is wrong with Kiwi males?

          The AB’s know a winner Blazer – that’s why he was invited in.

          Winners attract winners, Bazer. The reverse is also true.

      • Zedd’s got it right. I much prefer to see a win after a decent battle. The fight is half the fun.

    Quote of the day from a Morrinsville farmer:
    “The Green Party, holy Toledo. I mean when they talk about economics it’s just like Hugh Hefner talking about chastity. It’s a bloody joke.”

      God bless his hillbilly heart. Meanwhile, Jacinda gets her numbers wrong again…re farmers who irrigate. It’s not 12,000.

        To paraphrase Patz in another post Labour never let a half truth get in the way of campaigning.
