Now. I've never been a socialist.

Let me go further.

I live rurally( perhaps better described as buttfuck nowhere) at the selwyn huts .

The most peaceful place to reside in and the most beautiful community I've ever been a part of lives here to.

Before the 25 kmh bend into my place, , there is a long grass verge, always mowed and taken care of that a great deal of people mow people that care,,pay rates , carpark the poor have taken a fancy to as a free carpark to exist in their cars, like a motel with free lawns.

Just so you know.. John Tamihere doesn't sleep in a car, he's selling his house at present, no doubt to get something flasher...here's his current property:

Yet another national disgrace to add to the list.


Spot on as usual Garrick. You are a champion, a national treasure.

Compliments of the Season.
