G’day & Kia ora!

Welcome…

.

… To my blog.  I’m a social democrat, with centre-left tendencies in some areas; centrist in others; and centre-right in bugger-all (if any).

If you look over to the right (excuse the implications), you’ll see a brief list of my beliefs for a better New Zealand. Funny thing – we used to have so many of those things in this country, once upon a time…

And below that, a list of my Recent Posts. Feel free to have a read and, if you’re inclined, leave a comment. I welcome your ideas and responses to my comments. (Please note that most of my blogposts first appear on The Daily Blog, and are then re-published here five to seven days later. So check out both blogs – there are heaps of excellent writers on TDB!)

I leave you with the poem of the late Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892–1984), which is a creed I very much believe in…

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Yes, we’re all in this together.
