Saturday soapbox

Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

    What the hell is the matter with New Zealanders or is it the news media?

    Someone who committed an indiscretion in an airport toilet has just arrived home and this is breaking news?

    And why did our Prime Minister need to comment on this sordid little tale? I thought he was smarter than that

    Meanwhile really serious things are afoot

    Did you hear about this? Do you know what it means?

    There is more to the media than kids like Heather du plessi etc.
    Watching with interest.

    To be fair Will – Russia has always practiced Civil Defence drills on a regular basis that involve the civilian population

    This one was a particularly big one though and with an emphasis on attack by a foreign power

    I think most Russians are expecting war things are happening that have been seen before – like the build up of NATO forces in Eastern Europe and the placement of missiles on Russia’s borders as well as silly games in the Black Sea

    I guess we situated as we are at the bottom of the Pacific can watch with interest – but for the peoples of Syria and the Donbass living in interesting times is not so much fun

    And the bellicosity toward Russia is increasing – How do you spell hypocrisy – J-o-h-n K-e-r-r-y

    Andrei…I think we can safely ignore the mindless utterings of this idiot who believes that air conditioners and refrigerators pose an “equal” threat as that posed by ISIS..
    Your question should be How do you spell M-O-R-O-N.

    So why are the USAF painting F/A- 18 Hornets in Russian colors?
