Speaking of vindictive, how would you describe the Nats attacks on Ross?
A school-kids being ganged up on by another group of school-kids. The only one coming out of this with credit is the f**king useless bitch from down south.
I know that in general most of the other posters on this phred have me on ignore or exercise it personally , but one of the reasons I keep coming back here is because of the attitude the majority of posters have towards the National party.
The majority of people in the real world I know simply don't have or don't express a political opinion.
I do , but there's only one consistent aspect to it.
In my 64 years of rattling around the place I've only observed one consistent political fact in NZ.
Every Gnat government has systematically destroyed the economy , impoverished society in a variety ways both fiscal and cultural and done their best to ensure another generation of young will lose varying numbers fighting in someone else's wars.
Once upon a time , I was a Labour supporter , but their wholesale takeover by neo-Liberals put pay to that.
I've been more or less supportive of the centrist /left coalitions post MMP , mainly because the quality of MP's was better and the Select Committee process has worked better and resulted in some reasonably well thought out progressive legislation.
As I said , I keep coming back to this forum mainly to try and understand why the National party continues to enjoy alevel of support that I cannot comprehend
The events of the past week just confuse me more.
Why does anyone with an IQ above room temperature not see that the gnats are bunch of a*oles without conscience,without a defined policy or ideal , without a feasible plan for century 21 and are quite simply an example of all that is to be avoided in a parliamentary democracy.
