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 may be limited.

        Chur bro. Jesus. 😮 Are Duncan and Mark into actually doing that sort of thing on telly? Maybe I should watch the AM show. I’d quite like to see that at least once. 😐

          Corky is the one who gets all excited about beating and how good and helpful it is. It may just be that for other people, though.

    Squatters rights. We have similar legislation in New Zealand, as does the States.

    Still waiting for shrill snowflakes to protest the removal of refugee children to Australia. My, how they whined and moaned when Trumpy was accused of doing something similar.

      Missing the point there, Corky. This is taking them from a virtual prison camp TO Australia, not the other way around.

    • Better they were sent back to where they originally came from. The children did not decide to leave their country of origin, their parents did. Maybe many still have family there.

      If you call visiting the supermarket an experience worth writing about because you missed it, then yes, you have,,,,

    Nothing to hide..nothing to fear !!!!! China is introducing a social credit rating for each citizen. Unbelievable what can happen to you ( family and children) if you’re deemed a bad citizen.

    Western bureaucrats will be having orgasmic envy over this. They know such a system is at least 20 years away for them.

      Geez, Lurchy, you would probably get a low score…RED and your crackers would be taken off you. And you’d be limited to buying one pair of undies a year.

      Be thankful you live in Aotearoa..on Super!

      Leighton ran a recording of a train ride in China with a lady talking through the telecom warning passengers to behave themselves or they would face punishment.

    So, 70 Nauru refugees are offered asylum in America, but they turn it down because they would have to work…and there would be no welfare.

    Meanwhile in Aotearoa…
