Re: Alasdair Thompson on female productivity and periods

The video interview on stuff this morning (from tv3 i think) was pretty hilarious. interviewer: "Do you have any statistics to back that up, and if so what" Thompson: "yes i do. From talking to some of the employers we work with, and if you go out and ask the HR lady down the hall she...

Ye, but that's the same logic as arguing that you'd rather have the Devil in power supported by Mussolini rather than Hitler. :roll: I'd rather have a party that draws a line the sand and does not sell out their morals. Or at the least a party that will tell me where their sell-out line is. There's...

And claim they've only passed 1.4% of the 26% increase through to consumers.
