What a disgraceful women she is, Dog whistle was her only tag and its hard to believe she understood what it refers to.


As an advertisement for co-government that would settle it it should never happen if that is the bigoted level of debate that would occur.

ACT party vote is your only option.

I am not convinced that an ACT/National coalition would not ride roughshod over the will of the people , in exactly the same way as a Labour/ Greens , or any other grouping.

Just because they could; try and stop them.

Without an Opposition , you can't.

A majority coalition can do what it wants , or is "persuaded" to do.

Is Three Waters not a sufficient demonstration?

The point of these coalitions is obviously to hold majorities in the House ; that is , play First Past the Post with our MMP system.

I want to see the Opposition outnumber the govt. so that the will of the Parliament prevails.

Without an opposition that can effectively prevent the likes…

Dead right. Well said

The less authoritarianism, the better off we all are. And I'll say this. Christopher luxon.

You went hard on parents over self responsibility, and good on you.

But the accolades go to David Seymour for this interview.

I get that Christopher luxon has to tread carefully, and he's still new, but the man's not stupid. I don't care if he learns re reo. His choice.

He just has to push back harder. Watch him now, in the house. He's rattling ardern. More confident, and asks the right questions. , and with the help of act, will drag us , at least politically, where this country needs to be.

6 months ago, and yes, I was one…

David Seymour. Go. Go you good thing. Get up them. Rattle their cage. That interview perfectly highlights the radical racialism of the interveiwer in this case. So far out of her depth ,it was cringeworthy , determined to paint Seymour as the devils incarnate. Her opening remarks " I just came back from a marae" say it all. Like fucking hell she did. More that likely she swanned in from a coffee shop. And I'll say this. Mr luxon. Watch, and learn.

You'd be best to.

I have been following David Seymour for a number of years now and that was undoubtedly the finest, most well conducted and executed responses I have heard from any politician ever. I would urge people not to just keep pointing out over and over what we all already agree with, but to make every concerted effort to promote David to every person that you know, and if they don't know him or they are unsure about him then use this interview to show them how good he really is, we all need to be converting National Party supporters and the left if possible, the far left are a waste of time, so please make a conscious effort to forward thi…

Assuming Maori were able to prevent colonisation, what would their civilisation look like now?

Seymour touched on the subject in the interview. He pointed out the benefits of Colonisation. Maniapoto ignored it. I would like to hear a response from Maoridom, ie Maniapoto, Jackson, Packer, Waititi & others.

They go on about how Colonialism has restricted Maori ‘natural development’ & is the root cause for all of the Maori problems & Maori would be better off it they had been left alone.

It’s a fair question.

The good maori are hiding, the self appointed arseholes are in charge, they control everything to do with maori and maori funding,the communists buying maori, then those maori buying lighter weight maoris, the payouts slowly dribbles down, tribalism at its best, I see one of the totem poles have been beheaded here on Great Barrier Island, I was apposed to them because there was no public consultation about how us Islanders felt about them been stuck on public land, but I am also apposed to them been vandalised, that does not benefit anyone, just causes more problems.
