    Davidson in, co-leader Greens, no chance in hell now of a National coalition. Like National ever thought it likely or wanted it. End of this thread.

    Agree with that Baa Baa. Davidson is a hard left socialist that is more interested in protecting beneficiaries than she is in the environment. We will see a new green movement forming in the political middle somewhere, as it should always have been.
    I would not be surprised if such a new movement made it to Parliament in 2020 or 2023 with TOP and the Greens in current form and NZF will both disappear.

    Fair enough mate and totally understandable. No supporters of Winnie/Taxinda would want to keep their heads up !

    Well I'm thankful Fruit Loop Genter didnt get the nod. Shes banging on again about a Zero Road toll policy again. For a start it is unachievable unless we take cars off the road. Even EV's would have to go. Secondly our road toll is the lowest it has even been in real terms. Hit a high back in 1973 with around 850 deaths when our population was under 3 mil. Current deaths around 380 with a population of 4.5m. And you'd also have to ban stupid people from driving. (Like those in EV's who travel 80kph on the open road)

    That road carnage is not a ‘toll’ anymore mini.

    calling it something else will eliminate the problem I reckon

    Fruit Loop Genter may be, but Davidson is even more scary. She is a real activist from Nam!

    Apart from that agree with you about the road toll. I keep saying to the Mrs that every time they use nominal figures about our toll going up they fail to mention that there has been a steady decline and that in deaths per 10,000 cars (or whatever metric you want to use) it is not increasing but static at worst.

    Talking of scary Jam Logies been quiet for a while. In the interests of equality do the Greens have an internal policy of taking turns to say outrageous stuff?

    No. Quite obviously they are at liberty to continually spout total rubbish. If they were on a quota system Ms Logie would have used hers up in her 2011 maiden speech, where she described herself as a 'lefty, feminist lesbian.' That was the accurate and sensible part.

    Ah - that wil explain Golriz Ghahraman claim the other day that NZ does not (like Trumps Muslim ban) accept refugees from the Middle East or africa (Here at 6:30 http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/shows/...ghahraman.html) but if you look here (https://www.immigration.govt.nz/abou...uota-programme) you'll see NZ actually does.

    And this is after her at 5:00 going on about source checking and being vigilant about news in a democracy. Who knew how much rubbish can come from one mouth

    The question now is: will teh Greens be around next election for National to form a coallition with. Perhaps not. You have them gobbling that big fat rat - teh Waka jumping Bill. And now we have Co-Vice President Marama Davidson reckoning women need to reclaim teh C worrd.

    I'm a bit of an old fuddy duddy and I reckon teh C word is disgusting and has n place anywhere. It certainyl does not belong in an anti-racism speech. Women do not need to be empoered by claiming it back.

    She has lost the plot. And I am blowed if I can see what this has to do with green environmental policy.

    Rod Donald must be squirming in his grave and those "greenies" above ground must be wondering where there party has gone. The two that got biffed out dodged a bullet there.

    That would get an S or F word response but I wouldn't call him a C word. I need to broaden the range of people I mix with!
