    Default Whatever happened to our Kiwi spirit?

    Alas, I fear we've collectively sold out to a venal media, to the emergence of a misguided 'woke' brigade, an incompetent government, and a PM with unabashed Marxist leanings.

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Across ALL NZ, small business owners All together should wave their middle fingers in the air and reopen their businesses forthwith. Be interesting to see how long it would take for Labour and its erstwhile leader would take to fall into line. Time for the tough to get going!!!
