    The MP would have been better saying "NZ agriculture is not a contributor to climate change / Global warming AWG"

    Now the Reserve Bank Governor has come out and told the Finance and Expenditure Select Committee that the bank expects Kiwibuild to crowd out the private market resulting in very few extra homes being built. They estimate that only between 7100-14200 homes will be built by 2022, that wouldn't have been built without Kiwibuild anyway. Not surprising when Kiwibuild has started buying of the plan and including Housing NZ houses.
    What an absolute farce this flagship policy has become

    Kudos to the Labour MP's who managed to get out of bed in time today.

    Must have been hard for them ... I guess - why putting in the effort now they have the job?

    But just to keep this balanced - assuming there is no other side to this story - while the National MP's obviously did come earlier out of bed - the political games they played with the submitters feel unacceptable. No matter of the political colour, all of the in this game involved MP's behaved disgracefully and - in my view - don't belong as our representatives into parliament!

    I'd agree with that. A very harsh way to make a fair point - which it clearly has!

    I say freeze all companies out of setting up 5G. Keep cancer down and we can all buy shares in Chorus with their wonderful fibre optic cables.

    I agree with you BP, can't see the problem with 8am starts, after all these people went for those jobs as MPs.

    I presume that the UK’s Brexit From the EU coupled with Trumps America first protectionism, and the consequent need to find alternative trade partners has nothing to do with the UK’s attitude...

    Huawei are also generous sponsors of IT students from all around the world. Our son was lucky enough to be sponsored on a trip to China a while back.

    https://www.huawei.com/nz/press-events/news/nz/2018/students-to-gain-insight


    They also advertise widely in NZ, so if the risk can be mitigated or unproven, Huawei would seem to be worthy of our custom.

    Unfort polls are few and far between these days compared with the past so to be taken with again of salt. Need a few more to be convincing of a trend.

    "So what are the numbers? Labour is on 47.5 per cent in the poll and National on 41.6 per cent. Bridges' preferred prime minister rating has sunk to 5 per cent, against Labour leader Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on 41.8. "
    Just a reminder we now have a trend ,with a 2nd poll.

    More trouble for Bridges: Another poll confirms National plunge Meanwhile Jacinda Ardern's support has surged again.
