Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. And among the Public Service Professional Managerial Class, The Peter Principal reigns supreme:
    Formerly of INZ/MBIE fame, with Her best work an MIQ lottery system (the most primitive version of which could have been delivered several weeks earlier than it was but for micro management interference), in Her new role at ACC, She is going to improve and speed up case management – no doubt to ‘customers’.


  2. A contender for Arresting Person of the Century in NZ/AO:-
    …An Engineering New Zealand Disciplinary Committee is examining whether Reay failed to adequately supervise an inexperienced employee, David Harding, who designed the building in 1986, and if so, what action should be taken.

    Reay’s lawyer Kristy McDonald KC told the committee on Tuesday that Reay “strongly denied” the allegation.
    “There was no professional standard in place in 1986 that required Dr Reay to closely supervise an employee who was a senior registered engineer such as Mr Harding,” she said.
    “And if such a standard did exist, which is denied, Dr Reay reasonably believed that Mr Harding had the necessary experience to design the CTV building in light of the support that Dr Reay had put in place to assist Mr Harding.”

    Errors piled on each other until the edifice toppled! It’s a practice run for what will/is happening to NZ/AO. But – What, Me Worry!
    ,,,The commissioners concluded the construction manager, Gerald Shirtcliff, since exposed as having fraudulently obtaining an engineering degree in Australia, did not spend enough time on site. A competent construction manager could have identified design problems and given guidance to the site foreman.
