The Tuesday Club was initially started by Peter Beck, John Patterson, and me.
A common theme has been challenging and analysing the results of the extreme neo-liberal values imposed on our community by most politicians of the main two parties since 1984. We will continue to promote this analysis while we still breath in and out.
One of our founders, John Patterson, has had a chequered career in many areas. At one stage he was President of the Public Service Association in Southland. Here is a photo of him with the then Minister in the Labour Government, Stan Roger, who had sold out on his old mates in the public service where once he had been the National President of their union. John and Stan had just had a very acrimonious meeting in Invercargill and the Southland Times produced the photo below after this meeting.
Go for it, John-boy. The battle for economic reform which creates an inclusive society is still to be won.
