Default Re: In the News items : New Zealand

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.

Well, we don't really do we
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:

Most days you could be forgiven for thinking it was April Fool's Day - here's a gem from our National news today:

No doubt the culprits will get a grilling.

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
