Equally as concerning is that once other parties get in ...it still won't matter, the shits still gonna go on.. This and anything to do with firearms(in a negative way) are now the two main polarising issues I have. I believe both relate to a much bigger picture ...essentially freedom. Everything else is window dressing

Well said "Packhorse"
In my case I have decided that too many 1080 baits have been swept down the river and under the bridge under the current regime. After all it is sixty years this year since we aerial dropped the first 1080 bait in New Zealand. If it was any good we would all know how good it was by now.
If I am still alive in twenty years time I don't still want to be fighting to retain what little life is still left in our toxic forests.
Propaganda still rules around here. A woman from the Green Party tried to give me a pamphlet yesterday which led to a discussion on the Greens support for doubling the number of DOC Rangers and the increased support for more 1080. "The Pennisula is blanketed every three year now so where they are going to dump more is a mystery unless they force their way onto more private land"
Anyway this overly dressed and made up Woman came out and claimed that the Forest up the 309 road was very heavily grazed by possums. Having spent quite a bit of time in this area lately meeting with unhappy residents at the Mahikarau Estate who are going to be forced to endured 1080 drops on all four sides of their small forest blocks I have to say that not one bit of possum damage is to be found anywhere near the 309 road. What the poor deluded woman had pointed out to her by some self confessed expert was dieback among several species of tree and burnt trees from roadside spraying.
God save us from these types of political parties and Woman with no more brains than a louse, who believe them.
