    Re: Sold down the river

    Re: Sold down the river

    As readers in this forum seem to have no opinion either way, here's one from Sir Russell Coutts (Russell's certainly not one of the resident team of five million sheep) ...

    Whatever happened to our Kiwi spirit?

    Our national raison d'etre has seemingly been hijacked. Garrick Tremain puts it nicely:

    Sold down the river

    Whatever happened to our raison d'etre?

    Not wishing to hijack the thread, what gets to me is the practice creeping in of using political rank as a honorific. What I'm referring to is referring to is the PM using...

    Exactly, CliveM.

    The silence of our news media has been bought.
  15. Re: Prime Minister, not all of your "team of 5 million" is that stupid

    In case anybody missed it (because our subservient media didn't cover it fully), the Government paid the Media $55m as operating funds to keep going during Covid. And if anybody hasn't thought that...

    I don't have an issue with your post, zqwerty, and thanks for posting the verifiable information. Yours provides a link to an accountable and reputable source, which piroskas does not. Piroska's...

  19. Re: Sir Bob Jones - colonial nonsense - no punches pulled

    Fair comment 1101 in some ways, although I do not subscribe to suppressing opinion. Dissension is often necessary to reach a common ground on opposing viewpoints.

    In addition, Sir Bob is hardly a wannabe Fuhrer.

    By and large, this forum is made up of thinking, rational people. Comments like 1101 just made belong in the pages of social media at its...
