    “Who signed up to this plan to change New Zealand’s name? Who was asked. When were you asked?” Peters said.

    I'd just about vote for him on the strength of this.

    Let’s see how much support he can gather.

    Let’s not forget that it is entirely his fault that the socialist, virtue-signalling Left have been in power since 2017. He was sulking because his pension overpayment was released, blamed National and decided to put Labour in power as an “up yours”.

    So, though I agree with a lot of the points he has raised, I would like to see him acknowledge his part in this before any talk of a ‘come back’.

    But of course, Winnie is far too slimy for that.

    National still a joke. Seymour seems to be the Leader of the Opposition.

    Not just government departments being ‘woke’, a lot of business jumping on the bandwagon too so that they can’t be accused of being bigoted.

    For example, during homosexual week the banks fall all over each other to see who can make the most poofy looking ATM. Doesn’t actually achieve anything for the homosexual community, but makes the banks look like they really care!

    I could go on.

    God help us all.

    Couldn't agree more, but I could tolerate a truckload of slime more than I could tolerate a name change for New Zealand.

    I'd like to see name change to Aoetearoa put to a vote in a referendum, as it would be defeated. So they won't try it for ten or twenty years.

    I think we should respect the names originally given to places and not change them.
    Wait we changed them all already!

    Maybe change them back? Oh no that would be leftie virtue signalling. Not allowed on ST lol.
    Why is this thread even in NZX?

    I wish I had voted for him now ,anyone whom stands up to the P C trolls is taking a big risk with the state of the left wing press /media that runs the country's propaganda machine now.

    Thanks for pointing that out.
    It was because I had a brain freeze. I have asked moderator to correct it.

    I hope jacinda cancels him by removing the coat-tails rule.

    When you're sub 1% like Winny, not much to lose from saying it like it is (and like many of us might also like to do)

    Good on him for straight talking, non PC and non woke.... a breath of fresh air in the current climate. Still wouldn't vote for his mob though.

    Such an undemocratic and unconstitutional act would suit your's and Labour's cancel culture perfectly wouldn't it. Stuff democracy when it doesn't suit you and you know better !
