    NOT the mainstream media: ( an intelligent discussion)

    ‘Broken deal’

    https://www.rt.com/shows/crosstalk/426437-iran-nuclear-deal-trump/

    “Donald Trump claims he is the master of the deal. But when it comes to Iran, it is the art of no deal. The reasons the American president withdrew from the nuclear deal ranged from lies and disinformation to outright political propaganda. Trump claims he has made America safer – a dubious claim. Closer to the truth is probably an attempted forced regime change in Iran.

    CrossTalking with Mohammad Marandi, Adel Darwish, and Roozbeh Aliabadi.”

    Professor Jane Kelsey’s TPP-11 submission: https://www.parliament.nz/resource/en-NZ/52SCFD_EVI_76583_949/7c4feb4b76c329c7d034a9d0690d97f82a57e6f4

    Regulars will be familiar with the contents. Future digital regulation alowing companies (Facebook, ect) ownership of your online data and ISDS (Investor State Disputes settlement) feature a lot.

    ISDS was originally away for corporations to recoup there loses if assets got nationalised in a communist country. Why that’s been applied to capitalist countries I don’t know.

    Anyway Kesley ought to be saluted.

    So this is ALL for time being, that the Labour led government intends to change in our social security legislation:

    https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/bills-and-laws/bills-proposed-laws/document/00DBHOH_BILL68669_1/social-security-legislation-rewrite-bill

    http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/government/2016/0122/latest/versions.aspx

    Carmel Sepuloni’s main SOP 025:
    http://www.legislation.govt.nz/sop/government/2018/0025/latest/096be8ed81773ec3.pdf

    501 pages to read all ‘amendments’, but the first few pages tell us how little they want to change – for now.

    Most of the Nats’ nasty ‘reforms’ and changes to the law will remain in place for now, I wonder how AAAP feel about this.

    The rewritten Act is supposed to become effective towards the end of 2018, so beneficiaries can wait more years for any further changes to be made. We have NO indication that Labour intends to reverse the nasty changes the Nats brought in, with hefty sanctions, endless rules and merging the Sickness Benefit with the Unemployment Benefit into Jobseeker Support benefit.

    I am not happy with all this, more like business as usual.
