    Yes, although seemingly modest changes can result in costly and time consuming development work, especially when they need to be rushed. Regardless of the automation, staff still need to be trained, reports developed, processes documented; it's all rather complicated and time consuming.

    Which makes me wonder why it's called a power bonus. It's simply a winter bonus. Can be spent on warming-whisky, or jersey, lotto tickets or coal, wood or toothpaste.

    Whatever.The coalition is treating them as equals, sensible, rational, human beings not disposable unvalued dipsticks. They can warm themselves AND get that little extra treat; warming whisky sounds great, a finger sipped can last a while and warm the cockles of ones heart and fire up the imagination.

    Of course it is. Pure irresponsible nonsense. Nevertheless, I'll have my bit back thanks - although I note Taxcinda says we can opt out. At least she's got a sense of humour. Merry Christmas to all - including Muslims, Jedis and Atheists.

    While I did not share many political views with Jim Anderton I had a huge respect for this towering figure in NZ politics on the left for many decades. He was a man of integrity and a good MP & minister in the roles he served. His legacy is without a question in my mind the successful start of Kiwibank. My condolences to his family.

    Yes, it was sad to hear Jim Anderton has passed away. He's made a great contribution to NZ, that's for sure.

    Heh. Seems to be working well then, and will work even better for landlords who stick around in the business. At least until all these new affordable homes come on stream.

    Meantime ...
