NEW ZEALAND POLITICS

The problem is nobody gives a fuck about their community and they expect someone else to fix the problem

Shopping trolley loophole leaves Auckland Countdown responsible for rubbish dump

If you see a problem such as rubbish dumped on the street, complaining loudly is mostly a waste of time. You could always just take 10 minutes to clean it up yourself. The wider problem of course is that we have many members of our communities who just don't give a fuck. This is an illness of society. It is selfishness and a complete lack of respect for the environment and other members of your community that the rubbish just gets dumped on the streets in the first place, but there is also a complete lack of setting a good example by each and every person who simply walks past it.

Dozens trespassed from South Island Work and Income offices

I have said it here before but I will say it again. If the Department formerly known as "Social Welfare" would simply stop their aggressive bullying and dehumanisation of desperate and vulnerable people and re-jig the system to be compassionate and constructively helpful to those in need instead of projecting deep fear and intimidation onto them then we wouldn't need fat security guard cunts standing at the door of every WINZ office exacerbating the strong negative vibes.

The punitive welfare reforms brought in under the corrupt liar and former Prime Minister John Key and the endless media beatups on the poor have created this mess. It was never a problem until the psychopaths took hold of the government. Many WINZ clients are suffering from mental illnesses and all of them likely are in a desperate situation given the current housing crisis and skyrocketing rents and costs of living that this current government has been nurturing.

Historic PACER Plus agreement finally concluded

Trade Minister Todd McClay says the successful conclusion of PACER Plus negotiations is a landmark day for trade and the sustainable economic development of the Pacific.

"PACER Plus is a unique trade and development agreement. It includes a development package of more than $55 million that will help raise standards of living, create employment opportunities and increase export capacity in Pacific Island countries,” Mr McClay says.

The agreement which was reached in Brisbane today by Pacific Island, New Zealand and Australian Trade Ministers includes tariff phase out periods which recognise the vulnerable nature of many Pacific economies and the strong relationship they share with Australia and New Zealand.

Smart Cities Could Be Crippled by Dumb Security

Urban centers around the world increasingly drip with technology. But as a hack over the weekend reminds us, city officials mustn’t forget that cybersecurity is a critical part of adding smarts to the urban environment.

On Friday night, residents of Dallas struggled to get as much sleep as they might have liked. At around 11:40 P.M., the city’s hurricane warning system sounded: 156 emergency sirens, all screaming out in unison. It happened another 15 times, each burst lasting 90 seconds, until the alarms finally fell silent around 1:20 on Saturday morning.

New Zealand Welfare System to Blame for People not Taking Underpaid Terribly Shitty Jobs Being Offered by Greedy Assholes

A Northland horticulture firm director says employing locals does not make economic sense.

A Mapua cafe made the news this month when its owner revealed she had struggled for six months to get anyone interested in a kitchen job.

Patrick Malley, of Onyx Horticulture, said it was a problem that affected his industry, too. It was hard to get people to turn up for work.

New Nicky Hager Book HIT AND RUN, New Zealand SAS Forces Involved in Massacre in Afghanistan


Corrupt liar, former Prime Minister John Key authorised NZ SAS troops to attack a village in Afghanistan resulting in 6 deaths of civilians and no insurgents were killed or captured in the raid.

The John Key lead National government and the NZ Army then covered up the massacre. Whistleblowers from within the army came forward to tell the story and this new book which was co-authored with freelance journalist Jon Stephenson details what happened.

By the sounds of it there needs to be an inquiry into possible war crimes committed by our SAS in Afghanistan. Those responsible for the lies and coverup of this event need to be identified and held to account.

Oh yeah

Bill English, part time comedian, full time current Prime Minister announced the date for the next general election in New Zealand the other day. The 2017 New Zealand general election is scheduled to be held on Saturday 23 September 2017 to determine the membership of the 52nd New Zealand Parliament.

Thats nice.
