If bike lanes are social engineering, then highways are antisocial engineering.

I can understand people being confused about this event cancellation if they’re not in the loop. Not once does this article mention transphobia, not even in scare quotes or as an accusation. It just takes the name of the event at face value.

Terrorism is already a crime in NZ and loads of powers exist to surveil, detain, and charge suspects by our authorities. Our opposition is to the adoption of other countries' definition of terrorism by this law. In a lot of the world that includes political activists

Local comedy is basically the only reason I watch Three. Will someone set up a streaming local video service or will a Netflix pick up the torch?

His argument seemed to be that this person should be kept in limbo indefinitely because of previous crimes that have already been dealt with by the judicial system. Politically motivated extrajudicial punishment.

NZ Politics are rubbish most of the time. But sometimes it's just pure gold. In this example, the Minister of Immigration absolutely destroys a nonsensical attack from the leader of the opposition. It's such an epic own goal and subsequent burn, all I can think is *chef's kiss*

Make up your mind, man!! What’s your attack line here? Is it that I need to front the media (which I have) or is it that I should break the law (which I won’t no matter how much you insist on it). Or, once those two lines have failed will you try something else?

Simon Bridges on Morning Report today was a a shocker; he refuses to answer specific questions & simply repeats/yells talking points & phrases from his media people. This morning he was ranting.

I usually turn the radio off when Simon Bridges comes on, but today he’s just scoring endless own-goals and it’s glorious to hear.

New Zealand banned single use plastic bags on the 1st of July. Incredibly, the sky hasn’t fallen in and people aren’t dying in the streets as sone predicted.

⭐ Simon has tweeted a Stuff article about the Green Investment Fund. Simon implies James Shaw has achieved nothing as Minister. The article explains clearly the process of the fund. Simon probably didn't read the article. Simon is lying. Simon is a liar.
