    Who is objecting to it? Making an observation is not making an objection.

    Coverture was the basis of wives taking on their husbands’ surnames - times change and traditions can change as well but who are we to cast the first stone on those who choose to follow or not follow traditions?

    Why is a woman's surname even up for discussion? Incredible some of the attitudes shown on here.

    As for the preoccupation with the Greens, it's quite incredible what you all fixate on.

    Perhaps the fixation on here is due to the Greens voter base growing, despite their disastrous last six months.

    I don't care for the Greens, but I do care for the environment, which is the main reason I swung away from National 10 or so years ago. The current coalition seems to be even worse in this regard with complete disregard for the environment and little evidence that they believe in humanity's impact on Climate Change at all, ... like many of you I suppose.

    I was mislead by the exclamation mark when the observation was made by the poster ��

    Yeah, like the contract clowns who were working outside my home.
    I left a sign asking them to turf my lawn.

    They took that to mean throw it out, and fill it in with shingle!
