Open Forum – Tuesday

9 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.

    The right are whining more than usual,is it possible
    Yes, and no mention of Trumps achievements in the Herald or Stuff.

    It really is time that we had a decent news media not run by left wing apologists.

    How can we fix this?

    Watching one news about Thames, a bunch of right wing snowflake wimps complaining that they were not given advice what to do in the recent rain,After 9 years the right wing snowflakes still need john and bill to hold their sweaty stressed hands and the storm and results were Jacindas fault.Will right wing thames blame 9 years of john and bill the team of losers, for NOT SPENDING ANY MONEY on New Zeasland and THAMES or blame a younger dynamic new team, who have to cover the crap national left them.

      Tuff question Lurch. My feeling is they’ll blame the government. Because that’s what whingers do, whether they’re right wing snowflakes or left wing snowflakes.
