Has the Government lost its effing mind? — Kiwiblog

I’m not sure if the Government wants 50,000 people to turn up to the next protest rally in Auckland, but they seem to be doing everything possible to create a horrific wave of resentment.

‘Elimination’ Means Whatever the Government Tells You It Means — The BFD
