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).

    So sad about mental health and the National party.So mental health working with the police was the big plan if they had got into power but did NOTHING for 9 years…porkies Simon Bridges,

    • They did have a plan. It was to be implemented later this year, until the current Government scrapped it.

        I think someone meeting the mental patient at the station is a better option,but then these great national party plans take10 years to be put into action

      That is a disgrace…. Home Detention for that? The ratbag should be at Tongariro Prison doing hard labour in the fresh winter mornings…

      We are way to soft on so called ‘white collar’ crime…

    Righties usually are right.

    Mikey has prattled on for years about Elon Musk being a weird dreamer while everyone else gushed about him. Seems Mikey was right.

    And I for years have prattled on about Police being a social service and not enforcing the law as they should. Seems like I was right with a Police Superintendent telling Mikey the Police are about service and not force.

    Sometimes I think dictators have the right idea when it comes to running a country. In a dictatorship everyone sings from the same song sheet. Changing the musical key is strongly discouraged.

    Righto. The local supermarket’s run out of my favourite & roll on deodorant & not stocking the brand any more.

    Thoughts on a good bloke’s one that smells nice, isn’t feminine & flowery, & doesn’t overpower the room when the top’s off?

    (Don’t bother c, you’ll probably just recommend one that makes me smell like a camel’s armpit)

      stick deo dorants are best but quitehard to find.A natural crystal rock deo works well too.

    I’m bored. 😕 Hope the kitten arrives soon.

    That usually sets the cat among certain pigeons (& the Kerr bros) & provides me great entertainment as it claws its way through yesteday’s & today’s threads. 😎
