    True I covered several fields in the one post. I was most intrigued by your negative comparison of NZ special needs accommodation with “most civilised countries.”


    Which are these civilised countries and what makes them “civilised”?


    Dedicated special needs schools may be cost effective and feasible in large population centres but in less densely populated areas it could be impractical and inadvisable to dislocate the pupils?


    I totally agree with you in relation to a non-comprehensive CGT...but I wondered if you would need to apply your “what happens in most civilised countries” test to tax and topics other than education too? This thread is not limited to education.


    Disc: I have no experience of special needs education in NZ or in other countries (civilised or not).

    Happy to have with you a discussion about special needs education or about the CGT. However - if this is just about your special need in nit-picking ... life is too short for that. Enjoy your life!

    Disc: I had nits when I was a child. It was a relief when they were cleared up and my hair was nit-free!

    Answer to last question quite telling - seems quite brave in speaking out.

    Yesterday my car was sabotaged, two tyres had been interfered with; someone broke in to my garage to do it. It was only be chance I took the car into the mechanic for the six-monthly warrant and he noticed it straight away.

    And Jacinda again repeating NZ is not taking sides in South China Sea dispute

    Not taking sides is a way of supporting the aggressor ...shame

    Not just Labour but previous National government as well
