Better than the National Socialist Party did.
incorrect, add the houses not going to be built because Cindy stuck her nose in over the Market Garden near the Airport and those lost due to the eastern bus link your in negative.

National to howls of protest started the East Tamaki regeneration project , to Labours credit this has been extended to four other areas in Auckland with not a protest in sight. Ok when the left do it.

Do you support min sentences for assaults on first responders, or should we just give them a hug?

https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2019/12/tougher_sentences_for_first_responder_assaults.html
How about Simon giving them a 5 hour speech for 60 days in a row as part of community service?

Or would that be too inhumane?

There are still prisons you know and beds as well, unlike some who used to live in cars, although that should be reduced now.

The coalition have just announced spending of $400 million to catch up on maintenance on schools which had been deferred under National. Simple things like fixing gutters and new asphalt. No doubt you will consider that a waste of money?

A discussion on politics would be great rather than just meaningless point scoring jibes by fan boys of both political wings.

The problem with politics is that it's like religion, everybody believes what they believe, and no amount of argument will change that.

It is important to be able to have an open platform to discuss both, however, otherwise most people will remain ignorant of the big questions in life, and be no better than cannon fodder come election time.

I would not wish that on anyone:)
Agree maintenance funds are not a waste but.
1 Why are integrated Schools not included.
2.Why do New Schools receive funds?
3.Why the 2 year limit? Why not over a slightly longer period to allow industry to cope and proper planing to be done.

It is a typical ill thought out law to attract a headline.

Where is the link to confirm maintenance spending was reduced.
Still waiting on the link for the Prison build.
You did not answer if you were in favour of prison sentences for assaults on first responders, i am.
Do you support the proposal to have up to four years imprisonment for those who supply under 20's with dope?

Keep smoking your 14 grams a day:)

Completely agree. More tinkering dressed as transformational change. Makes for good Guardian headlines.

Meanwhile they are moving at a glacial pace with infrastructure and construction industry.

Agree... and there is a striking difference between stating your political view and denigrating people or other political parties just because you don't agree with their political view.

People need to remember that politics is entirely about policies, and not politicians. Many people tend to make political statements that are aimed at criticising politicians rather than criticising policy.

For example, it would be fine to say "Increasing taxes is just dumb becuase blah blah" as that is your opinion and its about policy... But saying "Jacinda is a moron because she put up taxes and doesn't know what she is doing" isn't really good substance for a healthy political debate because it's about a politician.

Unfortunately this is the key reason why unregulated political discussions typically end up being heated and often nasty is because we get wound up over differences of opinion which invariably spill over into criticisms of politicans, which then spills over onto criticisms of people that support different views...

Actually I would prefer a public whipping and the stocks for ALL assaults as an alternative to Simon. I am an older person and prefer old solutions.

Two Things you may not know.

1) I do not smoke anything. It is bad for your health and you should think of your body as a castle.
2) I have never smoked dope-Can you say the same?

I am not bothered at this stage about the referendum but will wait until it is finalised. If it is also proposed for booze I might support it. If you have had a relative killed by a drunk driver you might think about it as well. As far as I am concerned if you legislate for one you should legislate for both.

In the meantime Simon Bridges wants to arrest beggars hahahaha
Funny you say this. There has been a noticeable difference in beggars on the streets in Wellington since 2017. Perhaps its part of a bigger problem?

Revealed: The Public Sector CEO Rich List: (its not just on kiwiblog)

Halving the salaries of just a handful of those tax payer funded CEO's could wipe out the begging problem completely. Perhaps Jacinda could halve her salary too?

The NZ PM regardless of who it is is well over paid, they are paid more than almost all the European PM's, I think only Switzerland's President is better paid.
