Thats called risk aversion. Which turns up everywhere these days.
But it doesn't change the fact that things are going more tits up the more the population grows.

Ive seen more modelling from 'scientists' so far wrong its not funny - than ive heard of people getting sick swimming at the beach....

Same thing happened with Covid cases.
Basically, never happened, and yet those models kept our hospitals and health system shut down for nearly two years.
How many passed then or now due to not receiving a timely diagnosis and/or treatment.
I believe our weather service has five models they input data into then choose the one most likely to happen.
If true, could explain a lot.
Apologies if not.

So where’s the Green Party in all of this, they should be all over this instead of going on about giving people on benefits more money and wearing Palestine customs to parliament.

If the Green Party were actually all about the environment instead of a far left party, I would have a lot more time for them.

What an 'environmental party' has to do with benefits for those who don't want to work escapes me.

Maybe most green supporters are unemployed?

What a **** show! How entitled do you have to be to become an MP in your adopted country, earn $160K+ per year in a public sector job plus significant benefits and then go shoplifting?

The greens have become a party of celebrities all trying to get air time on TV, the problem they have now is all the main parties have their own environmental policies which basically are the same as the greens so they are struggling to be relevant.

Hey but she will say she’s so sorry and is having some issues and everyone will forgive her, same as the labour justice MP who got pulled over DIC and ran off down the road. She just got on TV and said I’ve got some issues and that was it never heard of again.

Neither are fit for public office ever again and I would say the same about an MP from any party.

She was sacked as a minister, had to stand down as an MP and is currently awaiting trial for the offences.  That's as much as would happen to anyone else, don't really see any special treatment there.

I lost what little respect I had for the green party when they all turned up for the opening of parliament dressed in support of Palestine.  I'm sure they would argue otherwise, but that looks like condoning terrorism to me.

Correct.
Hamas do not want peace as it threatens their Raison d'être and existence.

The Greens only did it as a political stunt to get some airtime of TV. But good to see NZ journalists didn’t make a big song and dance about it.

Well instead of just talking here about all the problems we have why don’t you make a court case or figure something else out to fix these problems? New political party 😂

Wheres tough talking Mark Mitchell now??


The German traveller was staying in a bach in the tiny Hawke's Bay town of Nuhaka and said he and his son hid in the house, feeling threatened by a group of locals who laughed at them and made throat-slitting gestures.

Police said in a statement the location of the bike, while suspicious, did not prove it was stolen by the home's occupiers.

They gave the pair a police escort out of town.
