    Global Warming / Climate Change

    I know it's no scientific measurement, but I don't recall news of forest fires in USA in the past. Now we get them every year. What's that all about?

    Trump written off

    Oh the irony around the banning of this CNN reporter. I love it!! "USA - the land of the free", where freedom of the press is now curtailed if you question the Great Leader And all these sackings of high ranking officials - aren't they merely purges of people who don't do the leaders bidding?. It's getting harder and harder to differentiate between the USA and North Korea.

    I see that "totally unstable individual"; "Lyin Ted Cruz", got returned as Republican Senator in Texas.

    ....if he did, is President Trump now acknowledging he made a serious error of judgement.

    Didn't President Trump appoint Sessions to that position in the first place?

    OK. what's the update. Have those loud, obnoxious, racist, redneck American's come to their senses, or is the world set for 2 more years of divisive war mongering.

    I see unemployment's down...........just saying!

    Jacinda Ardern

    My post was in reply to tripple alliance posting that "Cindy has only one advantage over Bridges" - Are you trying to tell me, right at this point in time, that Jacinda Ardern is less intelligent than Simon Bridges????

    Jacinda Ardern

    and she's got a cute little baby as well.....and she resonates with the public....and her party MP's aren't trying to back stab her................actually she has many advantages over Bridges.

    Jacinda Ardern

    Yeah... keep this up triple alliance. There's a bigger picture here and your churlish chipping of the PM, while she's promoting NZ on the big stage, shows just how dim you are. Even Simon Bridges and rdytdy have gone quiet for a few days.

    live at the Paramount.

    "Runnin Back to Saskatoon" was an old fav of mine. I'd have never termed them a "Pop band"

    It was the little orange hair piece on the head that etched it into her memory.

    SA beat AB’s

    It looked to me like McKenzie had set himself for a droppie and BB said "No, we're not doing that - we're going for the try." I wonder if they'll clarify if that actually did occur or just keep it "in house".

    SA beat AB’s

    The AFL semi on Saturday was played after the AB's v Boks game, so you could have watched both. It wasn't a great game by any means. The Dee's v Hawks the previous evening was vastly superior.

    Now tell us about 'Lyin Ted Cruz' 100 1. Is he a part of the "deep state worldwide" or is he not? In the past President Trump has called him "a liar" and "Not fit to represent Texas". Now he's backing him. Says he's a good man. I'm confused, but I'm also sure you'll have the answer for me.

    Jacinda Ardern

    Who leaked this?? It's an outrage - there should be an inquiry. Some vindictive, back stabbing so and so in the Cabinet.............with mental health issues no doubt.

    Jacinda Ardern

    Mike Hosking is now nothing more than a Right Wing "Shock Jock." He doesn't even pretend to have balance in his comments these days. He is so subjective, he is no longer a credible commentator.
  18. If it is correct it, would encapsulate a mindset holding back the NZ racing industry. Local, vested interests, placed ahead of the greater good. Nostalgia must be placed aside. It's time to move on.

    Poor old Wobblies....

    Memphis has too much class to use the word "Pooftah" He would merely sit his son down and show him a highlights reel of Neymar's dives, theatrics and feigned injuries. He'd ask the boy "Do you really want to play a game where people carry on like that?"

    Poor old Wobblies....

    I don't disagree - Male rugby playing numbers are in decline and have been for some years. some to Soccer, some to other sports and many now playing nothing. However - Rugby, largely via the All Blacks,continues to hold the premier position in NZ sport. That is unlikely to change.

    Poor old Wobblies....

    Just a couple of points Basketball is taking schoolboy players off both rugby and soccer. Any increase in Rugby numbers will be women and girls. Women's rugby is taking players off netball. Touch rugby is booming at school level. If you ask those school kids playing Touch "What are you most likely to watch on TV"? Most will answer Rugby or NRL. Spectator numbers are in decline for rugby, but they're declining across all sports. These schoolboys might be playing soccer at school, but how many are turning out to watch games at a higher level? Same with Basketball. People in NZ are just not turning up to watch live sport, unless it's at the very highest level (Internationals).

    Trevor probably thinks it's a waste of time to hold an enquiry into a "leak" that occurred two days before the information was going to be made public. And he'd be right. I can't believe that this "story" continues to be reported, when there is far more important, genuine news, occurring in nationally and internationally.. The National MP responsible just needs to front up, resign and then we can all get on with it.

    Is there someone in the National Party caucus with a serious mental health problem?

    Trump written off

    I listened to a chap on the radio the other day who agreed that there is corruption in Washington ("the swamp") and that past regimes have been beholden to big business on Wall St. He further agreed that President Trump does indeed wish to "drain the swamp". However, his take on it was that Trump merely wants to replace "the swamp" with his own "swamp". One that he has some measure of control over, as opposed to it being controlled by the power brokers on Wall St. You reckon the chap might have this correct? It sounded plausible to me.
