    Very few I'd guess, if any. Obviously doesn't care about copyrights either. ST used to be tough on copyright infringement, name calling, personal attacks etc, but that seems to have all gone by the by with these election threads.

    A REMINDER THAT LABOUR WANT TO IMPROVE PEOPLES LIVES
    More spending on core public services or an income tax cut and faster repayment of debt?
    That's the choice being offered to voters by the fiscal plans of our two biggest political parties.

    Labour plans to spend about $12b more than National between now and June 2022.

    This is on operating expenses - the ongoing stuff like health, welfare, police funding and education. It doesn't include capital expenses.
    For context, total operating expenses between 2017 and 2022 will be more than $400 billion.

    What a load of rubbish. Supporting and encouraging parents to have kids. Not for me thanks. And the winter benefit is just a huge waste. Really its just raising Super. Might as well take the money from the hospitals to pay for it. Ugh

    Over 5 years the irrigated area increased from 425,000 hectares to 507,000 hectares. The Target is 850,000 hectares by 2040.

    This is a shocking indictment on whats happening and they want to increase it.Intensification plus continues. We need a water royalty right now. We can do better waaaay better ,lets do this.

    Water quality progress struggling

    National are fiddling after 9 years and will continue to allow a small % of farmers to intensify and pollute our environment. Labour would like to make NZ Clean and green, AGAIN. ONLY ONE CHOICE TOMORROW IMO.

    Alternatively you could go to Seek (https://www.seek.co.nz/investor/employment-report) and see job ads are up.
    It will be the post election numbers that will be interesting especially if Labour takes us back to the 1970's

    Long and interesting article in the Irish Times about the invention of Baileys Irish Cream in 1973. Two guys went looking for a cream drink based on a bottle of Irish whiskey and a jar of cream. It took a lot of hard work and the addition of chocolate. The name came from over the door of small scruffy establishment next door to one they were entering and the preceding initials, from another firm. The sales of this stuff is now into the billions of bottles but the interesting part of the success story is that, as a new export product it was exempt from tax for ten years. Maybe if we could accept that major tax incentives can benefit a country we might make some progress.
