    It might be safe for Marama to come out & play on the intersections & crossings and not be left star struck while trying to perfect licking the asphalt between the lines

    Nothing like an early practice run for the wandering day of starry holiday
    LOL. Definitely no rainbow flags or LGBQTIAs will be around for long if he shows up with his posse.

    You said you are for free speech and ďall formĒ of protest so surely Swarbrick saying what she did on a protest march would be a good thing? Freedom in motion. I think it is a good thing to get as many causes together as possible on one protest occasion!
    Agree protesting without causing undue encroachment on civil liberties is good and proper. Im not sure whether all protesters coming out at the same time does them any good. The voice gets lost and can be seen as protesting for the sake of protesting. Of course, I have zero evidence to back this up so it may well turn out to be an effective way to conduct such a thing.

    Reserve Bank governor Adrian Orr shares fiery ‘letter to the editor’ with bank bosses


    Adrian Awesome drops a humungous Spaz & tries to share how p*ssed off he is with NZ Media

    Sorry - Adrian, the local Media don't appreciate being F/witted to the Financial Insto's here and over the way
    and the narrative being shared far & wide


    but don't worry - they're bound to be back soon trying to peel what remains of the soles off your outsized No 8's double quick


    What could come next ? ... A new day job ?


    Hope someone remembered to ask the bankers if they had a nice cozy spot coming up for man with Central Bank experience & who know the ropes on chalking up Robbo man's large pile of debt on never never


    ps: there's another bunch hanging at the Beehive that you could send love notes about too & see what that brings ..

    And another even larger bunch who might be more than slightly miffed about the way the strings are being pulled to keep interest rates high for extended periods .. the ensuing fight in the sandpit might produce some interesting outcomes that might come back to bite badly .. where the bite marks land won't worry many of the pack


    Sorry folks - NZME in their selective revenue generating tunnel wisdom have restricted to "paying me's only'

    Did someone suggest Mutiny & Te-Reason - folks ?


    Te Pāti Māori co-leaders have pushed back on suggestions calls for people to strike as part of a nationwide protest on Thursday is inappropriate, saying the Government was “oppressive” and the action was a necessary response to policy.
    Didn't some get to learn what Democacy was while at school, or perhaps too busy eating other kid's lunches out the back ?


    So much airing of the ramblings of Te Splatti lately - one would think they consider they're ruling the parliamentary roost .. beware however the ones below will only take so much sh*t and droppings before tail feathers start getting plucked

    PM considers strike action to be illegal rather than a human right (but if doing it, please do so on a weekend).

    What's not illegal though, is turning on all our heating and AC's during the budget speech hour so there's a power cut.

    Luxon is correct. For a start Striking for a political issue is a different matter to striking for a job-related issue. Also causing unrelated disruption to your business is good way to jeopardise job security in tough times. It is almost as if the Maori Party want their supporters to become hungry, unemployed and on the margins.

    Yeah I think that MP, Labour etc are happy to have a big segment of the population doing it tough, and encouraging them to behave in a way that is only going to make their situation worse.

    Thatís how that guarantee a certain percentage of guaranteed votes each election. Just make the people desperate.

    Maori elites are doing that already without needing a protest

    So the Maori elites are causing the economic pain and encouraging desparation?

    And it's their fault that services are being cut and jobs lost so that Nat/act/nzf can transfer resources from those on the bottom of the heap to those on the top in the form of tax cuts?

    And - to add insult to injury - the right are playing to the redneck portions of their base by trying to claw back and reverse much of the social progress made over the last fifty years. I suspect this latter point has at least as much to do with the current angst as economic issues.

    No, it's their fault the provisions put in place does not filter down to those that need it
