Unprecedented, undemocratic and unjustified.
Several here have prophesied something like this.
Open and honest government stopped the day this government was
handed power by a deluded majority and you know who you are.
Call your MP if you actually care about this country and do not want
become our reality.
Look at history; virtually all authoritarian governments are led, at
start with, by charismatic people.

The post is from 8 May 2020
You posted a link from May 2020,
Address what I wrote. Why do you not believe I should post something about this
government when you defend your privilege of posting whatever you want?
I have not objected to your posting; I merely pointed out that you had
posted an article from well over a year ago. The article you posted
included a reference to:
That predicted the government giving itself unbridled power.
The relevance of the date was that it is now possible, with hindsight,
to assess how true those predictions were - and as we have seen the
accusations of unbridled power have not been proved to be true.
So no problem with your posting, just with your flawed understanding
that over a year later the predictions in the article that we would
have a scary draconian and authoritarian government, are now capable
of measured consideration, and they can be seen to be false.
You effectively claimed that there was some truth in the url that
article you posted - but instead of defending that opinion, you have
somehow seen that request for reflection as to the credibility of the
article as being a request for you not to post older articles. I made
no such request; but I do believe that you have shot yourself in the
foot by the claims made by Cam Slater being now able to be seen as
demonstrably false - no real surprise there . . .

Using carefully chosen little words. Read carefully now Rich.
You often post old links, and invariably as a criticism of National, some many
years old. Therefore you do so for poliitical purposes.
I only post if the articles have relevance, Tony - you posted an
article which with the benefit of the time since publication can be
seen to have been scare-mongering and untrue in the reality of what
has actually happened. Just the facts, Tony.

Why is it that you can do that but you are hysterical about me posting a link
only from last year?
No hysteria - it is up to you to demonstrate the relevance of the
material you provide links to - you have clearly not done that.

All your other nonsense in this thread is a deliberate attempt at diversion.
Answer my question or go back to your reform school.
Which question is that, Tony?
You made some statements, such as "Open and honest government stopped
the day this government was arbitrarily handed power by a deluded
majority and you know who you are." There is no question in that
statement, and you are of course not obliged to provide any - or even
a single example of the lack of open and honest government - but I
felt such stupidity did not need to be rebutted. I am not your keeper
Tony, but I see nothing wrong with drawing your attention to the
reality of predictions made long ago that have not eventuated.
