  1. Past hour
  2. You are projecting Holey Pasta. You have no depth to your argument because you don't really understand what you are spewing forth. As for your ad hominem attacks they are as inaccurate as you political assertions. I did make the debating team three years in a row as third speaker. I had a reputation for quick wit, rapier style rebuttal and immolating my opponents. No doubt now you will respond with more slogans in your misguided crusade against neoliberalism not that you understand the term nor have any coherent alternative!
  3. Yeah right!You avoid evidence with a passion. You cannot sustain your jaundiced opinion and you resort to facile,subjective conclusions. I can see you never made the debating team....constantly repeating the same empty refrains is not a basis for informed discussion.
  4. Read your own posts. You talk a load of crap about things you obviously have no idea about. That is made even more apparent when you are questioned and found wanting. Then you roll out another set of slogans and dogma which you clearly have no understanding about.
  5. Today
  6. When Jimmy Ting Koon-ho suggests he’s needed “a lot of luck” during a blistering start the season, it’s easy to mark it down as nothing more than a typically humble response from the fourth-season trainer.But there’s also some truth to it, with the 49-year-old’s numbers suggesting he’s needed a slice of fortune as he’s raced to 11 winner after just 12 meetings.With just one second and five thirds to go with his 11 victories, Ting is the only trainer with more wins than placings so far this… View the full article
  7. some examples to back your allegations would be good. You should quit while you're still standing! Go and have a...bet..you'll feel better.
  8. I guess that's why you repeat doctrine and dogma in the form of slogans and cliches.
  9. An academic!....But they go to University...Rodney taught you....indoctrinated you...well!Lol.
  10. As Chief says, just another piece in the jigsaw. Such a dangerous virus is this Delta, everyone should be very scared now that they say it is in the South Island! Very convenient so they now say that the South Island needs to step up to the plate and get up to 90%! Yes they are the most transparent government we have ever had arent they? Totally the opposite and yet just so many Dickheads follow their advice! Well the news is all bad, watch what happens as they continue to change the Roadmap or Traffic Lights or while they transition! Even at 90% Ardern stated that Au
  11. You are starting to sound more and more like an academic. Cindy needs you!.
  12. Relevence citation needed-'Fortress NZ was first described and planned by Professor Michael Baker et al in 2018!!! Cindy bought it hook line and sinker!' Don't tell me you support ACT! 'bollocks. Serious headwinds headed our way'....not just our way...the foundations were laid with your adorable neo liberalism...'put'.
  13. So what? You're obsessed with bagging Key. Focus on the here and now! Fortress NZ was first described and planned by Professor Michael Baker et al in 2018!!! Cindy bought it hook line and sinker! Wrecked nothing certainly by comparison to this current mob. Bollocks. Serious headwinds headed our way Shit gets worse - don't tell me you support the Maori Party?!
  14. Take some of your own advice. Key popped up with the handbook 'hermit kingdom' line the other day. Ex forex gambler and a one man wrecking ball for NZ. Global shocks are global are they not! NZ is as well placed as any country,better even. Told you,I'm no fan of Ardern.
  15. The great mare set for Glory today . 10 group 1's will be looking good near her name. No Zaaki means great chance now ........ Damian Lane steered Lys Gracieux to victory 2 years ago , so he knows the course well. I think a chance of the kiwi Tri as well !! with VE-Probabeel-CallsignMav a fair chance. Big Mo' a solid chance toget amongst it. The BOAY pin-up girl Verry Elleegant to do Nz proud once again.
  16. As is NZ's ability to pay and its ability to sustain global shocks. You watch what happens to inflation when petrol is $3 a litre by Christmas. As for your illiterate rants about Key. I suggest you use your energy to tackle the here, now and future instead of wallowing in blaming the past. Adern has made many promises none of which she has kept. An absolute failure for the country and economy and now failing on Covid. Her only tool in her repertoire is to take away freedoms and democracy.
  17. Still waiting for your definitions of Socialism and Capitalism and free markets. Btw the Key govt ran straight line deficits .It suspended funds for the Cullen Fund,tried to stymie Kiwibank,halved contributions to Kiwsaver ,neglected health infrastructure and basically kicked the can down the road regarding the housing crisis. No surprise to see Honky Tonks turn up as Chair at the ANZ and Simon Powers at Westpac. For the few at the expense of the..many Natz 101. As for NZ Govt indebtedness it is modest compared to most OECD countries. Purchasing private assets suppose
  18. The Government no longer has any desire to limit spread. The two cases in Northland were people allowed to travel from Auckland. I bet it is the same for the Blenheim case. Actually from Te Awamutu via Rotorua. The cynic in me says they are deliberately seeding the rest of the country to scare people into vaccination. Someone I know travelled from Whangarei through Auckland to Wellington, ferry to Picton and then onto Nelson and back again last week. All allowed and legit.
  19. It's not an exaggeration. The amount is fact. How else you describe QE? The purchase of Government debt bonds by the Reserve Bank with funds they created that have no links to real assets! Printed albeit virtual! The debt to GDP ratio was 16% and declining when this Government was elected. It is now ramping quickly past 44% and spiralling upwards. What's more this Government has been surreptitiously purchasing private assets with the printed money further fuelling inflation and property prices. Socialism at its best. You obviously don't keep up with the state
  20. Until today. Time to reset the counter.
  21. Doubt I'm contradicting myself. FYI...Cuba which has been subjected to crippling sanctions for over 50 years has a very modest economy. It does however have one of the best health systems/stats in the world. 120Billion is an exaggeration,as is the term 'printed'. The Key Govt borrowed 80 billion because of the Christchurch earthquake and the GFC. That credit has to be repayed with interest to the ex Key cronies on Wall St. I know which remedy I prefer.
  22. Is that a sustainable business model? Maybe higher wages would help!
  23. In his dirt test Oct. 22, Fletcher and Carolyn Gray's Figlio Del Re fought back nearing the wire in a seven-furlong maiden test at Laurel Park to win by a neck. View the full article
  24. It was by no means universal agreement. I'd prefer the targeted strategy that Sweden engaged which was per the globally agreed pandemic management strategies prior to Covid-19. That is just like ours was before Ardern lost her head and listened to the modelling idiots. You contradict yourself so readily. A poor economy leads to poor health outcomes. Many many countries in the world are evidence of that. NZ printed $120b in debt to fund consumption when $10b could have fixed our health system and provided 100's more ICU beds. The lack of the latter being the primary bottle
  25. Because New Zealanders don't want to work for low wages in adverse conditions which Filipinos view as luxurious conditions. New Zealanders would rather get paid $40k a year to attend 12 committee meetings and go to the races.
  26. Wonder why farmers welcomed it then. You in favour of the U.K opening up strategy...the economy is more important than lives! Hows that working out for them?
