    And here we go again, clean, green, 100 percent pure, oh so pretty and transparent and top of the ratings scale NZ Inc., in this case Auckland City, is not quite what it seems:

    ‘ Auckland Council names 25 blocks with cladding cores like Grenfell Tower’

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12068992

    ” Auckland Council has just released a list of 25 buildings with exterior aluminium composite claddings like the Grenfell Tower in London, where a fire last year killed more than 70 people.

    But the council stressed the Auckland buildings with the flammable polyethylene cores in their claddings are not necessarily dangerous because they have other means of fire protection.

    The huge Waitakere Stadium at Henderson, certain Auckland Hospital buildings in Grafton, Spark’s four-building campus in Victoria St, large residential blocks in the Viaduct and CBD, the huge PwC building on the city’s waterfront, TVNZ’s headquarters on Victoria St, Auckland University’s Owen Glenn Building and many apartment blocks appear on the list.”

    Donald Trumps Parallel Universe of Madness and Delusion:
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa/trump-kim-agree-on-denuclearization-but-deal-seen-symbolic-idUSKBN1J72PM

    A totally vague, unspecific and non committing ‘agreement’ expressing aspirational intentions is hailed by President Trump as a great achievement towards peace on the Korean Peninsula, while a detailed, very committed agreement between leading powers and Iran on nuclear controls is torn to pieces by him, as it was according to Trump not worth the paper it was written on.

    How bizarre the world we live in has become, and the MSM are caught by the circus in Singapore, as if some great historic event took place.

    The only thing ‘historic’ was that a deluded, narcissistic, upredictable, authority loving President Trump shook hands with another self loving, and self important authority loving and exercising ‘leader’, who is a dictator who has blood at his hands and little scruples to have tens of thousands keep in virtual concentration camps.

    It tells us something about Trump, who rubbishes Trudeau of Canada, and other traditional allies, while he gets on so well with dictators and autocrats, like leaders of Saudi Arabia and North Korea among all places.
