In the News items : New Zealand
 
General bits and bobs of news items from all around New Zealand.

I came here looking for a General, BEVS. No General, so far. Fake News!

I agree with referendums but I want a "Yeah, nah...depends" option to represent my indecisive views on both topics. After all how can the public hope to express their views when options are artificially reduce to such crude general-isms as "Yes" and "No" options? The Devil is always in the details.

Both referendums are being hidden in amongst the general election and I don't think either will be binding. It's just a way of getting both of these bothersome topics out of the way without the government having to climb down off the fence to commit one way or another.

New Zealand story on BBC due to being downwind of Australia currently. A thoroughly unenviable position:

At a time when news always seems to be doom and gloom it's good to see someone trying to have a laugh with it
