I’m a rather boring political blogger. I like to look at the evidence, see if it supports the political spin, and comment accordingly. But it seems we have a ‘secret agent” in the Greens who can write very clever satire, at least on mining. The agent’s under cover name is “Lhaws”
Yesterday I went up on a beautiful mountain, Te Aroha, which forms the stern of the Hauraki waka. High on this mountain is a “small” abandoned mine site which is in fact a series of visible scars overhanging the small town of Te Aroha on the plain below.
I never knew what Nightcaps was. Nightcaps have had coal mining since the late 1880s and have experienced tragedy as well as identity through coal mining.
