My lack of actual post-writing enthusiasm continues apace. However, I can at least point you in the direction of good stuff!
National keep arguing that the amount of land they want to mine in our conservation estate is “comparative to a hole the size of a postcard in Eden Park”.
First hat-tip to felix over at The Standard, for amazing persistence in reminding people, via the modern medium of all-caps, that WE SHOULDN’T MINE THERE AT ALL. BECAUSE THE REASON IT’S IN SCHEDULE 4 IS TO STOP PEOPLE MINING IN IT.
But a post that made me snort in a horribly unladylike fashion is up at Imperator Fish:
