Open Forum – Monday

8 January 2018


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.

    Where was Aunty Alamein Koopu last night ?

    That was possibly NZ’s worst political blunder-she wasn’t up to it, and the people who put her up to it should have known this.

    I am a little sceptical of the claims that the actor in Rocky Horror sexually assaulted female cast members ON THE STAGE. Nobody else noticed this ? Oh, come on.

    I see Andy has grown a beard. He now has morphed from a startled earwig, looking for a rock to climb under, to a mountain man looking for a liberal prat to kick type persona. Too late now,son.
