    Yeah I saw that. Many interesting names amoung signatories like Albus Dumbledore from Hogwarts, and Micky Mouse, Professor for Micky Mouse institute for the blind. Plenty more of that calibre where they came from.

    This was obviously an open and uncontrolled opinion poll , not a list of scientific endorsements.

    If they did not spot Mickey Mouse, they has ZERO vetting of who “signed” it. In fact NO ONE really signed it, it was clearly just some kind of HTML form on a web site that accepted any input from anyone, anywhere. There is more vetting of who does a tweet on Twitter.

    None of this was a “paper” as some reported it nor even a “report” it was an opinion column, so I don’t see why it even needed a non validated opinion poll to be part of it.

    Now how many of these name were fake but less blatant than Micky Mouse?

    With you there. National just lost my vote too. Well they were already on thin ice/lost with a few of their other decisions of late but this solidifies that. Either Act or NC for me

    Yep will be one of those two for us as well, this move will cost National a lot of votes which they are not in a position to give away.

    It would appear St Greta and her team have been caught out cranking up the sympathy PR. She posted a BS photo to twitter about having to sit on the floor in a train in Germany. The rail company took exception and diplomatically pointed out her team were sitting in first class, as was Greta for most of the journey. It's shameful how this girl is being manipulated by adults around her.

    What exactly did she do wrong when she posted a picture of her sitting on the floor? She certainly did during the foto and she stated that one train has been cancelled, which explains why this train on this section was overcrowded.

    She didn't asked for sympathy, she didn't misrepresent anything and she certainly didn't asked for hate mail and misrepresentations from people like you.

    I think I start to like her.

    So now me and the rail company are misrepresenting? It was a PR stunt pure and simple, and it sure as hell back fired. This girl has adults around her who are despicable IMHO.

    Not as despicable as the hate crowd who wants to smear her because they did run out of arguments. Trumpesk.

    Anyone who manipulates and brainwashes children to achieve their goals is despicable.

    A strong Act vote is just what National needs to win the election, and also to keep them in check. At the moment it looks like that's where my vote will go.

    Putting children in harm's way as human shields (figuratively speaking) is as about as low as it gets. That is what is being done here. Criticise Greta and you're a monster. The true monsters are the adults placing her in harm's way.
