I was a child asylum seeker. Few who have fled their home as refugees get the privilege of sitting in their nation's House of Reps, to have a voice. So I must speak out. We must all speak out. Children do not belong in concentration camps.

What an incredible contrast! Simon Bridges announces a dozen major portfolio changes without batting an eyelid. Meanwhile the PM gives 4 days notice before not sacking the Beleaguered Phil Twyford because they’re all worse beneath him.

The boner Duncan Garner got this morning when he interviewed Christopher Luxon still hasn't gone down.

New Zealand are on the brink of following Australia into the semi-finals, while Pakistan are far from any such comfort.

I used to be vehemently pro-euthanasia. When I was diagnosed w I often thought I may as well be dead. That was ableism in action. Until we are doing our utmost to dismantle ableism on all fronts, I think we need to tread very carefully around this kōrero.

70-51. Not as narrow a margin as I thought. I'd like to know how many votes there were along the lines of, "I'm against it but will vote it through so we can 'have a debate'." That'd give us an idea of how the third vote will go, and where we need to focus our arguments.

It seems many MPs only voted ‘yes’ in the hope that Parliament can somehow number-8-wire the EOLC Bill into a fit state to pass. With SOPs mounting up from all sides, that’s a very messy and uncertain process ahead.

Nobody mentions how there are no disabled MP's to speak to this bill directly. We don't ever get a first person point of view and speech, just view points filtered through the perspectives of non-disabled people making assumptions about our lives and how we must feel.

On the last day that the OIA response is due, the PM says she needs another 3 weeks before releasing her correspondence with Simon Wilson and Lizzie Marvelly. For “consultations”. Most Open and Transparent Government Ever. via

GEOFF’S NZ OUT ON THE LAND HUB 4h
So far Arderns govt has: -Criticised Trumps attempts at peace with N.Korea -Poured hate on Israel & the US. -Inflamed most of our strategic partners. -Appeased the extremist Turk Erdowan. Now she’s in support of the Iranian dictatorship. No wonder our allies are worried!

The Greens are pushing hard on a long-discussed "rent-to-own" scheme. "It would ensure more stability and a roof over the head for kids in New Zealand."🏡👶🇳🇿

GEOFF’S NZ OUT ON THE LAND HUB 3h
I always wondered what fed this look of rabidly insane glee on Ardern face when this pic was taken as she was handed power by the drunk. Now we know the truth about this nefarious Communist, we know her thoughts were: “You stupid fools all just signed your own demise”

When a govt sends in armed police to impose its political agenda, to raid homes of people w/out criminal record & w/out just cause & hold kids at gunpoint, then afterwards can’t find a single thing to charge the person w/, it is called: COMMUNISM

Dignity dignity dignity. Why did I not make a drinking game out of that. Every time you hear that word, take a shot. Politicians enable (a lack of) laws to deny disabled people with dignity daily but apparently they don’t give enough of a damn about that.
