  1. On that thought, look at the utter rubbish some”reporters” write about this.
    As if we care about there opinion, which is really what this case comes down too. We didn’t want to hear their opinion and they set about stopping us from being able to.

    They need reducating. Can we run right-wing reeducation camps for the camp?

    • The sneering tone suggests to me the reporter considers himself above the people arguing for freedom of speech. (I was going to use the term “smart arse “ but pulled back.)

      The report, being accepted by the Editor, is not simply reporting facts. The descriptions indicate opinion rather than fact and as such it demeans the credibility of the news agency.

      Freedom of speech and expression is important. Neither should be subject to restrictive action by officials or the law.

      • from Wikipedia:

        Journalism, referred to as the ‘Fourth Estate’ believe:
        “The Fourth Estate is a segment of society that wields an indirect but significant influence on society even though it is not a formally recognized part of the political system. The most commonly recognized part of the fourth estate is the news media, or press.”

        The media believe they not only report the news but influence the way society thinks. Media pushing their agenda onto society. Fake news is a real and dangerous concept.

        • Certainly, the media influence what happens.
          The first appalling effort was by the French using the new printing presses of the UK newspapers back in 1850. They had bought mass reading to many at that time and the Frogs used the media to push the Govt. of the Uk at the time to start the Crimean War.
          They haven’t stopped since.
          The best thing to happen to them was the Internet and along came Donald to beat the shit out of them.

Daughter produced a Military Cross winner in the Boer war and then he went on to become a VC at Gallipoli (the VC was Australian. One of the Army barracks at Linton is named after him.)

            Have a copy of the service records of his time in the Crimea.
            For the Ladies, his wife was the First midwife in Wanganui. They are buried at the Riverside Cemetary.

    Home Latest News Tauranga News

    The spring flowers popping up around our region serve as a reminder that we are entering the last few months of the year. I’m looking forward to making them count. There has been a lot of activity both in Parliament and in Tauranga this past month.
    Rebuilding confidence in the economy

    I was pleased to outline Nationals economic plan with the launch of the fourth Discussion Document, this time focussing on the economy. There is no doubt the economy is stalling and infrastructure is grinding to a halt under the Labour-led Government.

    Our plan will focus on creating a more productive, competitive economy that lifts incomes, lowers the cost of living for all New Zealanders and provides responsible economic management that delivers world-class public services. To view our plan and have your say, go to http://www.national.org.nz/economy

    Speaking at the Infrastructure NZ Conference
    Bayfair Underpass

    I have been receiving lots of feedback about the upcoming demolition of the Bayfair underpass.

    I am shocked that the current Labour-led Government has abandoned the underpass underneath the Baypark to Bayfair Link. I started this project when I was the Minister of Transport under the National Government.

    Nine months ago, the Government made an announcement that the project would have the underpass, now it’s backtracking due to lack of funding. Pedestrians will have to cross a major multi-laned highway. An underpass is a much safer option. Also, crossing with the traffic will significantly slow motorists at this major intersection.

    Under a National Government we would have the underpass…no ifs or buts.
    Tauranga Corrections facility

    The proposed Corrections facility in Burrows Street is causing anger – I understand and share your concerns. More than 100 people attended a meeting at the Tauranga City Council. Locals voiced their concerns over the Department of Corrections proposal to move its Community Corrections facilities to 36 Burrows Street Tauranga.

    The site will be used for offenders to meet their probation officers, attend skill development programmes and join community work teams. More than 550 offenders will report to this site every week.

    The facility will be near residential houses, schools, an early childhood centre, churches, and public walkways. The local community has serious, legitimate concerns around parking and their safety, especially for school students and elderly living in the area.

    There are much better locations for a facility like this. The Department of Corrections should find a more suitable location for this facility.

    Tauranga City Council meeting addressing concerns over the Corrections facility
    Back to School

    The enthusiasm of young people is always inspiring. On a recent trip to the newly opened Taumata School I got the chance to hang out with some of its students. They had some hard and well thought through questions for me. I often find children and teenagers ask the most thought provoking questions. It’s great to see they are so interested in what’s happening in New Zealand.

    Chatting with students from Taumata School

    Their learning environment is so different to the classrooms I grew up in. Everything is open plan, the students sit at group tables and there is lots of hands-on learning. I really enjoyed my time at Taumata School.

    It’s almost two years since the last election. The Labour-led Government has had time to fulfil their pre-election promises. After almost 300 working groups they still have no clear plan or direction.

    National is doing the work in Opposition. We are forming clear plans for New Zealanders so we can hit the ground running in 2020. The policy work we are doing now is part of the biggest policy development process by an Opposition ever. We understand that policy can’t be made without your feedback. Our Discussion Documents can be found at http://www.national.org.nz

    I hope you take the opportunity to share your thoughts.

    • On Corrections, Simon should take his head out of his arse.
      Its a good place for the facility. We have the PD just at our back boundary and in all the years have never yet had a problem. We had more issues when the WINZ off was just up the road.
      The site the want to use is on transport is already a commercial site and the schools are well out of the way. One would add it is very unlikely many kids would walk that way to school, which after all is Catholic, as there are few houses on the other side of the impassable road known as 15th Ave. and they drive their kids there.

      But Simon and the useless lot of councilors we have will veto the deal.
      Personally, they are doing the right thing and would have done it behind us except for the issue of having no parking for an extra 80 people either on-site or in the street and that would have just caused huge issues for everyone in the area, including two of our bus companies.
      Interesting as well because the local school would have been closer to the old site than the new site and there are more houses close to the old site than the proposed new.

      Simon remains a wanker.

      • Thing is that when they are next in opposition, they will carry on as per normal. They will have a total lack of recall for their calls of cross-party support etc.

        So I think a grand coalition in this MMP environment would be the way to go, no small parties would wag the dog, but which of National or Labour would be the most resistant to the idea?

    • The prosecution didn’t drop the ball; they kicked it into touch. They and the police were most likely pressured by threats from senior government officials to tread lightly. Those who couldn’t be threatened would have been offered carrots such as promotions or plum jobs some time in the future when all this has been effectively buried.

      This whole affair is a disgusting illustration of how far New Zealand has gone down the path of corruption and societal decay.

      • I believe that once a case had been through a deposition hearing and committed to trial, it is then in the hands of the Crown and the Police have no input in to what indictments are laid or plea dealt with.

        0

        • While you’re technically correct, it wood certainly be possible for the police to be pressured before the deposition hearing to ‘lose’ evidence or ‘forget’ to properly compile victim and witness statements. This wood effectively make it easier to downgrade the charges from sexual assault of a minor (or whatever) to simply assault.

    • I think we should. We had an incident in Blenheim a few years back, a women that held an Air New Zealand crew up with a knife. With screening that wouldn’t have happened.

      • That was in February 2008. Somalian Asha Abdille . Demanded the crew fly her to Australia. Only problem , the aircraft involved was a 19 seater Beechcraft 1900. Blenheim to Sydney is over 2000km away and the Beechcraft wouldn’t have made it, even with full tanks of Jet A1. So the imported Somalian was really pissing into the wind with that demand. One of the pilots was stabbed so severely in the hand he had to give up flying from what I recall. A sure bet that poor fella will never be embracing multiculturalism

    • New Zealanders have a problem, particularly for our exporters. We are so far from our foreign markets.
      But let’s turn that problem into an advantage. This is the only country in the world where screening is not needed for domestic flights. If an idiot got on board, where would they hi jack the plane to? We are so far from anywhere. Even if an Auckland-Dunedin flight had enough fuel on board to go to Aussie, the hi jacker would not want to go to Manos Island, for that is where they would end up.
      Next question; why, of there is no, or very little, chance of high jacking, would the airlines insist on 30 minutes report in time for no checked luggage when 15 minutes worked so well for so long.
      If I travel on a Cessna with three passengers guess how many doors there are for passengers to embark and disembark?
      =ONE
      If I travel on a jet with 180 passengers how many doors do they make available for passengers to embark and disembark?
      = ONE
      Airlines are run by airline staff for airline staff and passengers are an awful hindrance and are treated as such.

  5. Oh my giddy aunt. What a mess the bottom of our society has become. The lack of responsibility, drugs, poor choices, chaos and danger. Our welfare state has created so-called adults who cannot look after themselves let alone raise children. As well as the total cot case of a ‘carer’ where did the parents go who never came home?

Well, it makes for inevitable fodder for National to bludgeon them with, and they better.

  7. A good summary of where the UK is at the moment :

    “In essence, despite Britain’s Parliament now being nearly totally dysfunctional with a government that can’t govern, members that openly despise the desires of the British public, and a speaker actively subverting the traditions of neutrality that go with the office, a fresh Parliament is frustratingly out of grasp. “

      • To top it off Racheal the UK Parliament has voted against a snap election !!

        How often does the opposition in a Parliament vote against the Government calling for an election ? This is despite Corbyn calling for a fresh election almost every day for the last couple of years.

        Corbyn knows he will get hammered and the irony is the election would have been a defacto 2nd Brexit referendum which the remainers have been calling for.

  10. Seems like an element of desperation is creeping in regarding the gun confiscation. Nearly half way through the process and only about 20% of the expected number of guns have been handed in according to one informed source. The media seem to have lost interest or are simply ignoring the fiasco. Gun clubs are now being offered the chance to confiscate their members prohibited firearms on behalf of the police, I’m sure this will prove wildly popular. Meanwhile everyone I know who has surrendered a firearm has replaced it already.

    Note that all the new laws Cindy bin Lying has been telling us are to make us all safer would have no effect on this because they entirely fail to address the problem which is “It appears to us that most of the injuries are with hand guns, and it appears to us that most of them are gang-related,” Smith said.

        Someone explained it to me last night the government and police are unwilling to go after the actual violent criminals because that would spoil the “relationship” the police have with the gangs which, apparently, is very important. I kid you not, this was told me in all seriousness. It is just like the police in the UK hushed up the grooming and rape of tens of thousands of vulnerable young white girls by Pakistani muslim men so as not to upset “community cohesion.”

    • Interesting article, thanks for posting. Looks like the government is on track to achieve their aim of making huge numbers of formerly law abiding, police supporting gun owners into criminals. It is a big worry how many gun owners who were among the most law abiding of people and who strongly supported the police have been turned against them by these idiotic law changes and the confiscation. The prevailing mood among many I know is “fuck them to hell.”

      In March 1977, film director Roman Polanski was arrested and charged in Los Angeles with five offenses against Samantha Geimer, a 13-year-old girl – rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor.

    “Newshub can reveal the Ministry of Education contracted and paid a school principal after he had resigned and been struck off for sleeping naked with a student.

    Uenuku Fairhall was paid half a million dollars by the Ministry of Education. After Newshub made queries, the ministry’s Secretary of Education, Iona Holsted, has now apologised to the Education Minister and the children involved.

    But because of name suppression, it wasn’t made public until August this year.”
