    So it was never going to fund a single elective operation.
    Hope this clears up your misconception.

    Although it should really be the subdivision developers paying, in my opinion.
    Yes Dave, Local Government, Central Government, they both excel at wasting Our money, seeing they have none of their own.

    But $3M to provide affordable and comfortable housing for a Lamprey pails into insignificance when you consider this.

    And the Greens want to contribute more.

    Has to be another Own Goal from the Greens surely, unless the whole country has gone nuts.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    All might and could in that link.

    The whole thing has become a religion and you are free to believe or not. It is a complete waste of time trying to push anyones beliefs onto others.

    Very true, but equally, disbelieving it will not stop it happening.

    Sorry zqwerty, but I got to the heading and dismissed the whole Blog as nonsense.

    I mean, who was recording fires in the Arctic 10,000 years ago? The same fellow chasing Fairy’s at the bottom of my garden I suggest.

    I really don’t know why some of these activists come up with these bizarre findings as it only destroys their own credibility along with others who may actually have a case.

    Sensationalising mundane matters to try and attract attention and produce panic only disadvantages genuine matters.

    Only a Month or so ago we had what was reported as a 500 year storm, about a week later we had a second. Naturally they were both put down to Climate Change. What they didn’t explain was who the hell was around in the Bay of Plenty 500 years ago keeping any sort of meteorological records let alone accurate ones.

    Given that the Green’s Policy is to give away large sums of our money to overseas bludger’s to enable them to live the lifestyle they are accustomed to they shan’t be getting my vote.

    Her mortgage is $345 a week.

    She had a boarder move in, one son, for a while. He paid $100 a week. She didn't tell them.

    So she is as evil as the MP, right?
    If she had told them they would have stopped all but the dole payment.

    Tell me how you live on that, remember there is rates, power, insurance etc as well on top of the mortgage.

    The son moved out of Auckland and she now has full time work. She also had to re-do her mortgage while not working, cause of course, she got in the ****. It's now a longer term.


    So at least the MP was honest. Show me another who is.....never come across such a thing
    She should have been a Maori and had 5 kids then she would have got 1K a week.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?
