Open Forum – Saturday

10 November 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 may be limited.

    Australian PM calls out radical Islam. Good.
    But doesn’t call out Islam and Muslims communities. Bad.
    Police say there is no ongoing threat. Bad..and deluded.

    Many more Australians will die.

      Australian PM knows the difference between radical Islam and other kinds. Good.
      He doesn’t abuse Muslims who are not radicals and never have been. Good.
      Police know what they are talking about and don’t stupidly give false assurances. Good.

      Corky talks as if he knows more than the people who are there and know all the facts. Bad.
      Corky makes predictions with nothing to back them up. Bad and delusional.

      Prognosis; Corky will be disappointed.

    12 dead, 10 wounded in mass shooting in US nightclub.
    One was a survivor of another massacre.

    All victims of the gun laws that allow nutters to have weapons that allow them to commit massacres, laws that Corky finds acceptable and admirable.
