    Pike River Recovery cost $50m - and they recovered 2 dead robots.

    Reckon they should have put the money instead to Port Pallmie earlier, W69?

    Sacking David Clark, which is what this is - though sugar coated as "he resigned" which no one's buying - was all about doing the popular thing.


    Which is what this Government is obsessed with: Being popular.

    Here's the rub though – in getting rid of Clark they've revealed their other Achilles heel – lack of talent.

    Let's do this - drive NZ into a nation of beneficiaries with Comrade Cindy's team of Incomparable Incompetents!

    The infrastructure commission is chaired by Dr alan bollard, a sensible type of bloke who will ensure mostly sound projects are put up.

    I still donít agree with you that Jacinda is cynical.
    Cynical people are negative, judgemental and find fault with others and often themselves. They say things like:
    Most people would try to take advantage of you if they got a chance.
    Most people you meet succeed by stepping on other people.
    Heís just in it for the money.
    How much do you think politicians care about people like you?
    Nothing goes right, goes to plan, nothing good ever happens to me.

    Many people are cynical about politicians. We donít trust them very much. We donít believe them, and doubt that they will keep their promises, and sometimes they donít. But we vote for those who make unrealistic promises because we hope they can deliver.
    So I donít think Jacinda is a cynical person. She had a high trust in people in lockdown, which is the opposite of a cynical person. So I still think that you are projecting your own cynicism about politicians onto her actions.
