Re: The Speccie slams quisling Kiwis

Con Coughlin joins the fray: Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s tiresomely woke prime minister, often complains that one of the biggest challenges her country faces in promoting its interests overseas is that, owing to its remote geographical location, it sometimes finds itself left off maps of the worl...

Re: The Speccie slams quisling Kiwis

How exactly is NZ expected to stand up successfully to China? We can't even stand up to bullying from Oz and their national colour is yellow. I'm assuming the other 4 members of 5 eyes have stopped trading with China in the meantime though. Well you could restrain yourself from telling Australia to...

Do you like democracy Enz? Because that's really what it comes down to. China is showing increasing signs of being a revisionist power. They don't share our values at all and are actively trying to shape the world around them in their image. They don't give a fudge about rule of law or maritime fre...

I am guessing that, as that was quite quick, we don't have a capital murder or a not guilty verdict so they have gone for the 3rd degree murder option

Re: NZ Politics Thread

Genuine question for farmer types (along the same line of thought)

The upcoming ban on live dairy cattle exports (if it ever eventuates) - should we even be exporting breeding stock when it may be better to just export the finished product?

Lucky to win that with the brain fvck decisions the Chiefs were making at the end. Should have held onto the ball, that was heart attack material.

    It must be comforting for the Chiefs players knowing that they can do whatever they want at the breakdown and the referee will allow it. It doesn't matter how many players are in the ruck, Boshier can swim through the bodies and use his hands to get the ball. Rugby is a shit game when the breakdown...
