KiwiBuild gives the government the ability to use smaller and more compact houses to drive these larger urban moves that will make our cities more walkable, more affordable, more environmentally robust. If you disagree with these things, or the efficacy of this approach, then great, let's debate that ...
Government and urban designers need an ongoing communication campaign to explain what shape cities we are heading towards, and why.
Examples both local and overseas are great. Useful idiots in our media must be countered every time they promote the car and road-building industries.
The long lagtimes mean we must shift urgently now or climate change will strand many urban people in car-dependant sprawl (and who knows how our minority of rural dwellers will fare). I enjoy driving but it is not our future, and nor are acres of separated houses.

an important element of men’s behaviour
an important element of people's behaviour.
The research I am aware of (not a specialist topic of interest) finds no gendered difference in motivations of revenge or obsessiveness. However, I do not need anything further from you on the topic.
I took the risk to become a consultant and doing my 2nd MSc, leaving my salary job of 2 years, because there was "a safety net"
Which is how it actually works for most people. Isn't it interesting how some others prefer to ignore the safety nets they have benefited from their whole lives. Self-made, etc ..
delighted that one or two of the more biddable commentators have taken the bait
I wish some hacks would set up a public auction site for backhanders - to be transparent about their lack of professionalism or personal integrity.
those labels were applied to a couple of visiting Canadian advocates, without any validating evidence.
Except everything they had said before online.
deny Don Brash his right of free speech
There is no unfettered right to speech, especially under the NZ legal and political system rather than the US one.
fixed by doubling the underscores, as Steven suggested
Helvetica in 1960
The world would look so different since then if we stripped out that typeface.
