Hi Neighbours,

Can you taste a difference between budget and premium milk? There are few things that divide the public as much as the budget versus branded milk debate.

In Stuff's new 'Milking It' investigation, we look at the difference between branded milks, the current milk prices in New Zealand, as well as the comeback of glass milk bottles.

So, what are your thoughts on our country's milk? Take part in our poll, and feel free to share your thoughts in the replies!

willfully blind

"Some in Ngāruawāhia are disappointed to hear of alleged high spending by the Maori King's office when people are struggling to house their families. The people can't understand how their King and his men can preside over so much when they have so little."
The actions of the elite incurring the involvement of the SFO have decimated the mana of a once proud tribe .the king has been royally shafted by the abandonment / waka jumping of his once loyal lieutenant Tukoroirangi Morgan who is scathing of the malfeasance,
Careful Tuku least the SFO request transparency and audit of your own financials, tales of $84 underpants ,a villa in the south seas wages beyond belief while you where a grateful recipient of the kings largesse
0ne tribal member commented "They've got Hopuhopu why can't they put houses on there, like one bedroom places - as people are sleeping on the street or in their cars down by the point." She also believes they could be doing more to get people into work in the town.
Well said turn HopuHopu into a large market garden ,house the homeless in the barracks,feed your people,house your elderly employ your young in the kitchens educate them in the endowed college become a proud tribe again no one of Tainui descent should be the victim of poverty when the tribe has asserts of a billion let alone relying on the state welfare for their existence
Are the tinted car windows so your people cant see in or so you cant see out ,you are wilfully blind to the malaise that effects you people

Kia ora Whanau,
I’m currently on my placement for Wintec down at Te Ahurei a Rangatahi in the city. Been blessed with the opportunity to serve in an awesome support group called ‘Brotherhood’, which focuses on the health and wellbeing of young males age 12-18yrs who are either not engaging in school maybe a little rough around the edges or your young one just wants to hang out!!. Activities are fun based and revolve around sport, self defence (martial arts), life skills, graffiti art/hip hop and outings, in and around the Waikato area. We meet every Wed 5:00pm-8:30pm with a mean feed to end the night and we also drop off after! If you could be interested, please don’t hesitate to leave a message.
