    Where do The Press find these journalists, on any metric NZ is one of the best places on earth to live and if she does percieve we live in some hell hole why no call on the present government to address literally any issue aside from upping the maintenance budget. She lives in Christchurch where we have 2 brand new hospitals, numerous brand new schools, new roads and billions poured in by National to a city that got broken in half.
    Ridiculous piece of journalism from a hand wringing left wing Ardern loving snow flake.

      I didn’t think I was THAT bad. I don’t even like Sir John The Golfer. o_O

        @Geezer. Not you. @David. Some times the replies don’t stay in line on this site but I will remember to @poster replies just in case 🙂

          Ok fair enuf. It’s mainly because when I was younger I had quite long hair and I sometimes wore it (in a very manly way, of course) in a ponytail. I don’t think I could ever have really felt safe around the guy if I was that age again.

    I went to a in boutique in Auckland and was assailed with a wall of sound like the below. Phil Spector would have been impressed…Lindsay Perigo not so.

      Christ Corks. Don’t do that.

      @Corky. You went looking for young beautiful women. So did you date any of them

        I went looking for a leather jacket.

          Were you distracted?

          • Corky

             /  December 27, 2018

            Not anymore.

              Kluelis; you must be joking. Beautiful young women date beautiful young men.

            • Corky

               /  December 27, 2018

              Still trolling I see, Kitty. Can’t help yourself, can you. Although, looking back at previous posts while I was away, I see you weren’t trolling anyone else. Apart from your predilection to correct other people’s grammar uninvited. And I only came across one example of that.

              Let’s hope you change your attitude for 2019.

            • Kitty Catkin

               /  December 27, 2018

              Go away, Corky, it was so nice without you trolling and accusing others of doing it if they disagree with you. Your constant nitpicking & trolling were not missed, I would imagine.

              No, I have no intention of changing to pander to your ego, so you needn’t think it. If you don’t like it, naff off. I don’t know or care where you were, but wish that you had stayed there. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that you were back, not that anyone else would have posted such a pervy photo.

              Did you wear a dress and tell the shop people a lot of lies in the hope of getting a discount, as you told us you do in other shops ?

            • Gezza

               /  December 27, 2018

              not that anyone else would have posted such a pervy photo

              Umm … I can think of one or two others, possibly. No names tho.

            • Corky

               /  December 27, 2018

              There was nothing to disagree about, Kitty. I just posted about an experience I had in Auckland. No ego was involved. Nor any opinion.

              ”Did you wear a dress and tell the shop people a lot of lies in the hope of getting a discount, as you told us you do in other shops?”’

              There you go again.. a completely uncalled for nasty comment.

              Like I said, you will need to change your attitude.

    No one should think of the society before acting. Just think and act. Here’s an explanation.
