    I've never voted for Labour - and this may be unkind to Simon Bridges - but I've been thankful these last few days that Jacinda Aderne is our PM.

    MacDuffy, I would love to see your portfolio sometime... well not so much see it, as run my hands over its richly textured history!

    I read your posts and I get that collectors wave of jealousy...

    ...to get overly poetic, your portfolio is a London next to my Wellington, a natural SS pearl necklace next to my freshwater cultureds, a 40 yr malt whiskey beside my Amstel light... there's just something so compelling about the history and stories that belong with it!
  2. Hello macduffy, Are you a professional or just an investor like me?
  3. Hi Mac, I am in UK and am a learner when it comes to NZ. How do you see the economy ?
