Forum

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.

    ‘Former real estate agent Aaron Drever under investigation for buying clients’ home without telling them’ – NZHeraldo …

    “Drever was stripped of his licence in November 2016 after clocking up a record nine adverse disciplinary findings.”

    Just one facet of the ‘new’ (or neo) legitimized corruption rampant in our society.

    Of course the former legitimized corruption of the old ‘socialist’ days was SO MUCH WORSE!

      Crooks like this operate in any system of government, PZ. Socialist or Capitalist. Capitocomunist or neoliberal. Even authoritarianist, democratic corrupticist & theocratic dictatorships. Although a few of those other systems Authorities might put a bullet in their head when they’re found out.
