    Less than 10% jobs cut so far of the 16,000 civil servants (added by Labour over the last 6 years) and the MSM are squealing like pigs in the abattoir but why were they so silent when the 16,000 jobs were added on?

    Those who are taking voluntary redundancies will be on their way to join the exodus to Australia - always the way that the best and most skilled will jump ship first, leaving the useless ones behind.

    Yeah well MSM getting their beans now.

    I donít feel any pity for the paddy gowers of the world hooing and booing about getting sh1t canned.

    They still seem to think a white knight should come in and prop them up so they can continue providing a service most people clearly do not want.

    They are so divorced from reality they just cannot look in the mirror.

    What about Kids fight in Park. And you try include the fact that the government has cut funding to after school clubs in the area? However your editor does not like the additional information? The editor thinks that story should be kept back and run in a few days time., without specifying which area had its funding cut.
    Sure Iíd love to hear about a Rhodes award as long as it was given on merit and not affirmative action. And if kids were fighting in a park as a result of funding cuts backed by irrefutable data confirmed by experts on both sides of the asile then Iíd read that too. Sadly, as we know left bias is institutionalised in the MSM and the editorial direction is anything but unbiased. Luckily we have news outlets that we can choose to read/listen/watch thatís is not under the perview and influence of cancel culture, namely the supposedly unbiased BSA and organisations such as the Disinformation Project

    Radio & TV have run the story of the Porirua pupil suggesting to David Seymour he will be responsible for kids starving if funded school lunches are withdrawn.

    Not one word or suggestion in the coverage it's their parents responsibility to feed their children.

    The popular 'healthy' options of nachos
    and butter chicken can easily be purchased elsewhere if unimaginative parents can't make a sandwich.

    We can all select whichever echo chamber confirms our particular bias.

    Which ones do you select, or is it just ST and your own opinions incessantly repeated that we're all fecked because we don't have a CGT in NZ? You're slipping in your posts, some of them don't even mention CGT.

    It would have been better not to have funded lunches rather than for the funding to be taken away? They should use their tax-free capital gains from investments for the extra money they need to find the money to pay for food plus tax during a cost of living crisis.

    Not at all, try to keep up, if you want to use ST as your platform, you do need to promote CGT in every post, it seems to be the platform that you base most posts upon. That said, your posts as you pointed out recently, have become quite 'in my words' bitter and myopic. OTY the prerogative is yours.

    Sorry I should have just said that it must be difficult for struggling families to find the extra money for lunches that had previously been funded. I expressed that facetiously.

    I have been posting more often as I have had more time on my hands recently.

    Anyway, Peace to you.
