  1. Episode 4: ‘We are black … we are human beings’

    https://www.newsroom.co.nz/we-are-blackwe-are-human-beings

    “I have complete faith in my officials”

    “I have complete faith in my officials”

    “I have complete faith in my officials”  They come across as really nice people.

    Oh shit, maybe I shouldn’t have unquestioning faith in my officials:

    “That message should have been brought to my attention. It wasn’t. That does not meet my expectations and I’ve made that clear.” ….. not withstanding previous examples such as all those “scummy” people; demographic spreadsheets; “we have enough Labour Inspectors”;  under-resourcing; “Kaiser Smol”; curvy screens; failed restructures, etc., etc…….

    Never mind! Once again, Jacinda to the rescue:

    “What I can assure anyone potentially involved in a case is regardless of whether they are present or not we have a track record of pursuing cases where there is exploitation of workers regardless of whether or not they are able to testify in court.”

    (That’s of course if we decide to pursue a case in the first place)

  2. Yes to Red Buzzard and Draco T Bastard,

    ‘China is so big now’ – the separate countries of this world are not able to survive with this new bad boy dictatorship overlord takeover. which have become “the Chinese problem”.’

    So it’s time for a global summit on the CHINA PROBLEM” OR WE WILL BE TAKEN OVER ONE BY ONE UNTIL WE ARE ALL CHINESE OWNED.

    HOT OF THE PRESS IAIN LESS GALLOWAY IS GONE BY LUNCH-TIME”

  3. Just how long can Peters get away with it?
    By it, I mean hiring the Brexit Consultants who admit to deliberately falsifying facts to suit their cause? forcing Antarctic NZ to take a couple of his friends down to the ice, the smoke and mirrors around the New Zealand First Foundation slush fund, the criticism of the government that he has been a part of for the last term – surely if they are that bad and dysfunctional he should have sided with the Nats when he had the opportunity.

    Just like all of the rest of them, he couldn’t lie straight in bed. Racism and xenophobia no longer have a place in this country and yet a party that is based on those principles still garners enough votes to keep him and his ilk with their snouts securely in the trough.

  4. CEAC Call for Road/Rail Transport Partnership will Make Our Roads Safer.
    Wednesday 22nd July 2020. Citizens Environmental Advocacy Centre.
    CEAC’s review of the National Party’s latest $31 Billion Dollar “infrastructure road Transport ‘vision” was disturbing reading for the future of our health and wellbeing because the vision was based upon just building four lane roads, with no regional rail expansion plan, which would effectively relieve the ‘serious increasing truck gridlocked roads’ – so CEAC calls for road/rail partnership to balance the freight demand on our infrastructure, to save our health and wellbeing and lower climate change emissions and reduce the “road runoff” of toxic truck tyre dust, oil, fuel, and other pollution sources that are ruining our waterways, lakes, rivers, streams, aquifers and our drinking water.
    It seems that the Road industry leaders have not seen Government’s MBIE latest release of latest Transport emissions data that shows our emissions are growing not reducing, and we are about to miss our Paris Climate Agreement to reduce our GHG emissions, and that will cost us dearly in many ways.
    We are now calling on both the Road and Rail industry leaders get together and plan together to balance the freight task movement around NZ for all our collective benefit.
    Road Transport Leaders must become involved with more “cleaner greener transport solutions” and rail is needed to balance the trend away from more to less GHG emissions.
    END
