      Trumpy is the best entertainment in town. He will be an impossible act to follow.

        That’s true. The only way to be beat his perfrmance would be to elect a total spaz next time.

  2. Do this to us Ms Ardern and you’re a one-termer

    “PEOPLE smugglers are moving to cash-in on a left-leaning New Zealand as it can be revealed

    Operation Sovereign Borders has turned back four boats trying to get across the ditch.

    In shock new details, it can be revealed crime syndicates have tried to bypass Australia’s tough immigration measures and attempted to send four boats, carrying 164 asylum seekers, to NZ.”

    “New Zealand is seen as we know from our own intelligence, New Zealand is seen as effectively part of Australia by the people smugglers,’’ Mr Turnbull told ABC Radio.

    “Do you know, we have intercepted and turned back boats which were heading to New Zealand?

    “I mean the people smugglers, the only reason New Zealand does not have thousands of people arriving in an unauthorised way on their shores is because of our border protection policies.

    “New Zealand is a prime beneficiary from our strong border protection policies.”

    Yep, I said this was a possibility. Kttycat and others said words to the affect that I was a fool.

    Ah-ha.

    The minute one of these vessels makes New Zealand, and a women wearing a scraf disembarks, you will be correct Traveller- this is a guaranteed one term government. And liberalism/socialism will take a massive hit as real world reality hits for pampered and indulgent Kiwis.

    If they land up North there is a serious possibility of assault from Maori.

    Mikey, as usual, gets it RIGHT.

        Don’t mind dimwits downticking this one, but it would be good if you could own up & then discuss it?
