Killer green technologies alert: downed trolley bus wires

A car would not swerved towards us and we would not have driven under downed trolley bus wires if it were not for this green fetish. The swerving car distracted me from noticing that the trolley bus wires were hanging low above it on a dull Wellington Day

This enormously expensive way of running public transport in Wellington is already killed bus drivers when they are out on the road putting in the polls back up to the wires. Today, we were put at risk of electrocution.

Does the Vanguard Social Index ever beat the market? @EricCrampton @JulieAnneGenter

The performance of social investing is so bad that anyone investing other people’s money and having fiduciary duties to the owners of that money should take legal advice. Over the 16 years charted below, socially responsible investing wiped $4,000 off the initial investment of $10,000. Over a lifetime of saving, that is a big difference to the security of your retirement.

50% of @PaulineHansonOz @OneNationAus votes come from @AustralianLabor voters

How can Pauline Hanson be an extreme right-winger if half of her votes come from people who 2nd preference the Australian Labour Party? This strong support for her populism has been well-known since she won the safest Labour Party seed in Queensland in the 1996 Australian Federal Election but is hardly ever mentioned by the media or her critics.

It should be therefore no surprise that a lot of her views have popular support because she has support across the political spectrum. Not knowing that will means you will be not very good at combating her views which you simply do not understand where they come from.

Few of her supporters see themselves as extremists and will be insulted when you suggest they are. Listen here dummy is no way to win back votes of people who just voted for you recently.

Hanson’s support among Labour voters is increasing. Only 42% of her voters gave their 2nd preference to Labour in previous federal elections for the House of Representatives.
