Nauseous.

First Jock Anderson, who some describe as a journalist, opens his big gob and puts both feet in. Now newby mp from Dunedin North, presumably looking for relevance, calls for mondayising of ANZAC Day on the eve of the day that is IMHO, the most sacred day on the NZ callender. I accept that Mr Clark(e) is entitled to an opinion but his timing is appalling. I guess his political leanings will be seen as an excuse.

"Mondayising" does not mean ANZAC Day won't receive due reverence. It means the opposite. If it falls in a weekend we still commemorate it on 25th April but also have a day to recognise it further.

Why the hell do we have to Mondayise public holidays?
Just so people who work nice hours in town can have another long weekend.
ANZAC is and should be the most sacred day in New Zealand, and it should always be celebrated on the day that it falls!!!!

I'm sure all those soldiers fought and died so that we could be forced to commemorate ANZAC Day on the day that it falls. Anything else is giving in to fascism.

Last time I looked, that's pretty much the entire reason we have public holidays. And people-who-work-in-towns is most of the people who work.

Hmmmm ... the reason for ANZAC Day is ANZAC Day. It falls on 25 April ... not 24 or 26 April or whatever.

Tamper with it at your peril.

Another reason NOT to vote Labour.

The Nausea comment was directed at the Mark II Clark's appalling timing to get political traction on the eve of My most sacred day of the New Zealand calender.
I couldn't give a rats rear if anyone wants to mondayise Xmas day and/or trade on any other day and that includes any day that the mad mullahs declare sacred to their religion of peace but leave April 25th alone, sheesh it is only a half day for most anyway.
I have never ever regarded the 25th of April as a holliday, a day off, or an opportunity to get a pay boost.
A sincere thankyou to those who support my position.

So, you don't give a rat's ass about anyone else's sacred days, but everyone should respect yours? Good luck with that...

True. People who think a public holiday doesn't mean a day off work probably shouldn't vote Labour - but then, they most likely don't anyway.
