      It’s funny how Gareth wants to tax everything that moves and yet TOP was constantly being touted as a replacement for ACT to snuggle up to National.
      Gareth is a lefty from way back, but lacks the charisma or thick skin to be able to work with any party. Or person. The party was a complete waste of time and space, full of policies that may have had theoretical merit in a pointy headed way but were so impractical as to be worthless in a real world setting.
      Danyl is quite right in his assessment of how we vote too.

        Gareth’s tweet there is a bit like one from Trump, but lacking Trump’s charm.

    “Well it’s been an intense week here by anyone’s standards…”

    Warning: Even Pie regulars might find it graphic!

    Having grown in RAF family (1960-70s) I see that the British are celebrating 100 years since they were formed.. with the Royals are dressed up (inc. Charles & William) in the best dress uniforms. Followed by a flyover by the ‘Red Arrows’ (RAF top gun fighter jet display team)

    oh the memories.. of youth 🙂
