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 lesson in objective reality. The great thing about objectivity is the difficultly you have applying spin and personal bias. Notice the quick recourse violence and abuse shown by these Muslims. Proof once again Islam has no place in the West. Yet we keep welcoming them into our countries.

    “Objective”!? Side-splitting stuff Corky. What a *good-morning* Kiwi Goy you are.

    British *Christian* neo-Nazi, para-military, vigilante race-hate group set out to incite violence against and engage in violence with Muslims …

    As SUBJECTIVE as truth can possibly be.

    Incidentally, BF’s ‘NO MORE MOSQUES’ Dewsbury ‘Day of Action’ was 16 Jan 2016

      I guess this is the kind of ‘activism’ you wish NZ First did?

      I didn’t know they were neo-Nazis. I just thought they had a right to march down the street in their own own country as democracy allows. Provocative, yes. But that’s not the point. I didn’t see them instigate violence. I mean, you don’t hand out pamphlets if violence is your aim.

      ‘Kiwi Goy”” Is that the Jew hating Leftie response? What have Jews to do with this situation?

      ”Incidentally, BF’s ‘NO MORE MOSQUES’ Dewsbury ‘Day of Action’ was 16 Jan 2016.”

      So what? That’s not my fault. Lol.

      You disappoint me ,Parti. I don’t know whether you are trolling, or just being a rhetoric machine on loop. Sorry, dude. I tap out….again.
