Andrew you should have asked me about your shadow portfolio allocations.

I could have told you that: 1. David Cunliffe is despised in the regions so appointing him Regional Development spokesperson is not going to help Labour's cause one little bit. 2. What the hell is this Interfaith Dialogue all about? I sounds like Politically Correct `mumbo jumbo' which will be a complete waste of time. Unless of course you are sending the spokesperson to Northern Island to sort out the `troubles' which still simmer over there.

I Guess That Does Create Interest as Half Arsed Garbage.



On the face of it, Masterton Business owner Lucas's policy around "drive off debts" being docked from wages seems very harsh and probably illegal in the face of existing law.

Perhaps there is much more not revealed?

Knew a young guy who on leaving school did a tech course in basic food prep and eatery hygiene then bought  a bankrupt fast food opportunity (non franchise) and commenced to make his fortune.
Sadly it went south as his old school mates and those of his staff considered it obligatory for John to supply them with free food.
A great young man was forced from his business when cutting his losses was the only option remaining.

So was the Lucas system from day one of employment,
Had certain employees been "unluckier" than others,
Was this policy included in the employment contract.

One commenter elsewhere glibly recounted a slick system of track covering by "till manipulation" and another had a tale of a two trolly scam involving getting a checkout operator to make a product change.

When I go to maccas, the colonel or even my local chippy, they dont even reach for the chip basket until the dosh is in the drawer and the dam thing is shut!

On a management committee facing serious shortfall in apparent takings we installed serious surveillance security and it still took some time to uncover the fraud involving the bastard manager  who had purchased two identical tills that he spent hours at home after work, creating a second set of printouts sufficient to overcome  standard audits.
It was wandering hands at the staff xmas function that gave us the opportunity to dispense with the crafty bastard's assistance and then, under the galling and entirely stupid employment law we had to tread very carefully when a sister Club sought a reference following a job application.

Before the chatterati condemn a person trying to overcome scumbag attitudes, is it too much to hope all, or at least much more, background is discovered and published.

I am not defending the alleged behavior of Lucas and now Pakinsave in docking staff wages but can we please have a lot more facts before the scheduled Lynching.
Due process and all.

ON ANDREW LITTLE

It is far too early and far too easy to write Andrew Little off as a failure in a long line of Labour Party leader failures ... Cunliffe, Shearer, Goff and, before them, Moore, Palmer and Rowling.

There are a number of reasons for this.    First, and perhaps most importantly, it is difficult for for any Government to win a forth term.   The pendulum effect is well in play and that has to be to Labour's advantage.   Second, and this ties in with the first, it is difficult to see Labour going anywhere but up in the polls.    The 25% Labour scored in the last election probably represents their nadir .   The only question is how far up can they go?   35% and they're in with a real chance.

Then, turning to Little himself.   Dour perhaps and beholden to the Unions maybe (but not sure how much a negative that is in the same way you might argue that National is the voice of Federated Farmers), but certainly pragmatic evidenced by his willingness to dump unpopular policies and hints (only hints mind you) that he might be prepared to turn his back on Labour's 'Old Guard' and promote to the fore the likes of Nash and Davis. That of course could turn out to be a double edged sword and he needs to ensure that those left out in the cold don't turn on him and white ant his leadership as happened with his last two predecessors.  

Perhaps even more interesting will be to see how he manages Labour's relationship with the Greens.

Yes, Little lost New Plymouth big time in 2011 and bigger time in 2014 but it's now a whole new ball game. Will he be seen as a break from the past and a genuine gamechanger?   The next few months will be interesting. If he can bat through the early overs and is not 'run out' by his own side then I suspect he might turn out to be a formidable opponent to both John Key and National.

Who Cares FFS?



Reports claim Laila Harre has stepped down as a  leader of the IMP.
That is NEWS?
What about the co-leader?
When was the divorce declared final?
Where was Hone?
Has the electoral expense return been filed?

Not quite a party but a vehicle designed purely to attempt to provide a roadblock to the possible extradition of a certain obese male who strategically splashed dubious dough about in the leadup to the Sept General election.

Yes the other half of the imp had existed, albeit as a personality cult that had managed to avoid electoral oblivion through a mix of racist tribalism and a culture of entitlement around a treaty signed over a century and a half ago as a mechanism to pacify tribes with no identity as a nation.

The internet portion of the abortion never really existed, however the money did.
Spurious talk of a "missing million voters", dissaffected youth and a further numberless vote that only needed to be activated amounted to zilch as the net result was to motivate possibly unmoved voters to make the effort and support the current administration.

Is it beyond reason for the MSM, even accepting it is terminal, to actually investigate what was in reality an open audacious attempt to subvert a fragile democratic process for personal gain?

Does any sane person actually give a rats posterior what a duplicitous, manipulative political nonentity does after a total rejection by an electorate.

The Nation, Q & A and now a publicised resignation, I repeat does anybody care?

SARAH PALIN .... DUH!

She may be batting for the right side but really, sometimes you have to wonder. See here for Sarah Palin's response to President Obama's Immigration proposals. Very funny,  especially the bit ......

Let’s commandeer all the cruise ships, all the fishing vessels and all the yachts those fat cat Obama donors own and then let’s pack ‘em full of illegals and send these people on a one-way cruise to Mexico City.     The  long voyage back across the Mexican Ocean should give them plenty of time to think about..."

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrr ... and she might have been just a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

SHALLOW AS A BIRD BATH

The quality of media reporting continues to amaze ... or perhaps not.    Take the case of  Muhammad Rizalman bin Ismail who appeared in court today to plead on charges of burglary and assault with intent to rape.

In various reports he is referred to as a "Malaysian Diplomat" and a "Defence Attache".    He was neither.    He was a serving Warrant Officer working in the office of the Malaysian Defence Attache as an administrative assistant.  

Rizalman was not a diplomat.  My advice is that he did not hold a Diplomatic (Red) Passport.   He was however afforded the protection set out in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.   But that does not make him a diplomat.    Equally, he was not their Defence Attache.   The Malaysian Defence Attache (DA) is Lieutenant Colonel Shaari bin Baba.

I know 'Diplomat' and 'Defence Attache' makes good copy but is it too much to hope for that the media might indulge in a modicum of research in order to ascertain the facts?     Sadly I suspect the answer is 'yes' given the state of journalism in New Zealand.

Just As I Thought It Would Be

The Commerce Commission has found no fault on the part of Countdown.

The Commerce Commission said that based on the evidence it gathered during a nine-month investigation it "does not believe that Progressive has breached any of the laws it enforces and it will not be taking any action against Progressive".

Nothing could be as stupid as a Labour politician trying to beat up on a supermarket chain for taking effective action to keep prices down for all those useless pricks who vote Labour and Greens.


BATTING FOR THE OTHER SIDE

New Zealand has a rich military history.    But, while we are happy to claim Nancy Wake as one of our own (despite the fact that she left for Australia at a very early age), it appears no-one but no-one wants to acknowledge the fact that one of the greatest traitors of WW2 was New Zealand born.     His treachery far overshadows that of the much better known John Amery who masterminded the 'British Free Corps' or William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw) or even Lance Corporal Roy Courlander, 2 NZEF, who actively recruited POWs into the BFC.

Patrick Stanley Vaughan Heenan was born out of wedlock at Reefton on the West Coast on 29 July 1910.    It is suggested his father was a mining engineer, George Heenan, who played representative cricket for NZL in the 1882/83 season.    Soon after the family moved to Burma where he was baptized Heenan.    Heenan senior died in Burma in 1912 and later the mother took Patrick to England where he was educated at two upper-class schools; Sevenoaks School in Kent where he was a boarder, and then at Cheltenham College in a stream designed to prepare him for a military career.    By all accounts Heenan did not perform well enough to be accepted for officer training.   Instead, he joined a British company with extensive business interests in Asia.  

Later he successfully applied to join the Army Supplementary Reserve and in 1935 he was commissioned into the British Army and posted to India where he served with the 16th Punjab Regiment but was later transferred to the Indian Service Corps.   This apparently was a device commonly used to side-line unsatisfactory officers.   In 1938-39 Heenan took six months long leave in Japan.

In 1941 Heenan was sent to Malaya where he served with a Air Liaison Unit  stationed at Alor Star in Kedar State.   It was in this area that most of the RAF, RAAF and RNZAF units were based.    On 8 December the Japanese invaded Malaya.   By 10 December they had destroyed most of the allied aircraft in North Malaya.   Their air raids, which concentrated on the airfields, were assisted/directed by Heenan.   On that day Heenan was caught “almost in the act”.  Among the espionage equipment found in his possession was a morse code transmitter operated by an alphanumeric keyboard similar to a Traeger Transceiver.

Heenan was taken to Singapore where faced a Courts Martial in January 1942.    Such was the 'confusion' with the Japanese beating at the door, he does not appear to have been formally sentenced. He remained in custody and by 13 February (after the Japanese invaded Singapore) Heenan was reportedly taunting his guards ... ‘that he would soon be free and they would be prisoners’.     The British Military Police decided to take matters into their own hands ... they cut cards to decide who would kill him.   He was taken to the dockside when he was killed by a Sergeant with a single shot to the head.   His body was dumped into the harbour.

Fascinating story which needs to be told.    You can't pretend history never happened.


When Did That Happen?



Innocent until proved guilty.

Justice must be seen to be done.

Judged by ones peers.

Evidence to be tested in open court.

Independent Judiciary.

Some of the basic tenets of a system that has served for centuries.

Over recent decades with the advent of "The Family Court", "The Employment Court", "Marae Courts" coupled with a serious degradation of "Court Reporting " and journalism standards, what was accepted as a flawed system that usually delivered, is increasingly appearing as broken.

Sutton was judged by his boss in an eight week inquiry with absolutely zero checks and balances referred to above and now stands guilty in the eyes of many in an outcome that has satisfied very few.

Ms Accuser is nameless and faceless, her motives are secret, her evidence is unchallenged or tested, the charges are largely based on feelings and perceptions, the convicted is now without the job and its income.

The mayor of our largest local authority has admitted having sexual relations with an employee of the entity he heads, including a witnessed coupling on the furniture of the Ngati Whatua room at his main place of work, multiple liaisons with the  lady in work time and using council resources yet  carries on with his arguably ordinary job performance unimpeded.

We are not allowed to know any of the detail of what Sutton has supposedly done, yet the man who has carried so much of the burden of the aftermath of the seismic upheaval that has so damaged the second largest city, is now himself seemingly equally damaged.

When did due process become so altered and pernicious.
I am not judging Mr Sutton but I will always be grateful for his awesome work for his destroyed city.
Thankyou Roger Sutton and your nearest and dearest for your sacrifices.
I am also seriously saddened that justice was denied you in the " Kangaroo Court" that has convicted and punished you.

To those engaging in the Sharia like public stoning of Sutton, you are despicable, if things are half as serious as claimed, make changes, so many of you have the opportunity.

Little By Little

Andrew Little has been anointed as Labour's leader.

I reckon he is the only person who has the capability to reform the party and bring it back to the centre - making it attractive once more to middle New Zealand.

He needs to forget about john Key.  Forget about Parliament and question time.

The first and only priority must be to exert an iron fist of discipline over the idiots in the Labour caucus.  And he has the power to do it.  The power of the unions.  The drongos in the rainbow faction and the huggers of the Greens need to be told in no uncertain terms that if they step put of line they will be deselected.

He needs to  develop policy that will appeal to middle New Zealand and he needs to attack National on policy, not on personality. 

I think Little, like Tony Abbot in Australia, is vastly underestimated.  He has an opportunity to prove all the pundits wrong and bring forth a genuine new Labour Party which at last shrugs off the appalling legacy of Helen Clark.

ON THE HUSTINGS - THE LABOUR PARTY LEADERSHIP RACE

Most of us 'normal' people don't get to have a say on who is to be the next Labour Party leader although, such are the rules that govern how they elect 'il Duce', if I had bothered to pony up $10 or whatever I could have been in there boots and all exercising my right albeit as a Hoary Tory or even as a part Tory Hori ....  I digress.

But I find it interesting, as an observer of the body politic, to note how those with a vested interest in the outcome of the contest see things .... some of their comments are both insightful and instructive.

From the Dim-Post ...  If I was a Labour voter I’d worry less about ‘who I’d like to have a beer with’, or which faction they championed, or even whose policies and values I identified closely with, and more with which of them has the qualities to fix the deep, structural problems within Labour and turn it into a modern professional party.

From Tinikori ... Little is the only candidate with experience of running a large and successful voluntary organisation, the EPMU. It’s a no-brainer to ask him to transform a small and unsuccessful voluntary organisation.


From Unaha-Closp ... The party has marginalised the caucus. They’ve split, disunified and weakened the caucus by making leadership dependent on the Left wing factions – the membership and the unions. The caucus should have much more power within the party, because the caucus are representatives of the voters. The voters dwarf the membership, yet they are of same voting weight. It is a ludicrous system designed and implemented to favour the Left.


By Phil on Mahuta ... Also awful on Radio Hauraki breakfast show last week. Yes, it’s a joke radio station hosted by Newsboy and Martin Guptill’s missus, but Mahuta showed absolutely no situational awareness. She didn’t seem to grasp the concept that breakfast radio could be something other than Sean Plunkett asking the serious questions of the day.


From SGH ... No-one involved in the Labour leadership contest or the post-election review is an A player. You think Gould has the foggiest idea how to win an election? What on earth makes him qualified to comment on what Labour needs to do differently?

So what are we to make of all of this.   Mahuta, trading on her name and colour.   Widely seen as Parliament's laziest MP.    In the 'race' because?   Her second preference votes will be crucial and should favor Little.   Little, beholden to the the Unions as their man.   More left than center.  Two time electorate candidate loser.  Robertson, beltway politician and champion of Labour's Rainbow faction.  Like Little, more left than centre.   Party activist favourite.   Parker, architect of Labour's economic agenda with more holes in it than a Swiss cheese.   Supposedly business friendly. Questionable personal ethics.   Caucus favorite.  Candidate for a personality transplant.

And who would I have voted for if I had ponied up the dosh and become one of them?   Why, that nice Mrs King from Rongatai of course.   Since becoming Labour's mouthpiece she has hardly put a foot wrong.   These four leave me cold and, while 2017 will be no walkover, a four term National led government has to be on the cards.  

On Tuesday all will be revealed.

It Is The System Dammit.



We have a judicial system with a punishment component that has a "life sentence" effectively 14 years  in custody and then some post custodial constituent recall, to become active on further criminal activity, should the system decide to intervene.

Therefore should a convicted person sentenced to "life" be a model prisoner and earn a right to parole after the minimum as prescribed, served, they will be prepared to reintegrate into society prior to the parole board making a decision to set them free.

Without entering the debate on the rights and wrongs of such a system that is what those working the system have to deal with.

Smith/Traynor has served his "Life" years and is in a situation that leaves the Parole board and corrections with minimal room to prevaricate, they have to let the scroat loose.
With the convictions he had, could the judge not have used Preventative Detention thereby giving the Dept of Justice a means to keep him in jail?

That POS has made things so much worse for all the dumbarses who are facing release whether mandated or as an option.

It appears Smith is a rather different bastard and by an audacious plan,  with assistance and help from others, with or without knowledge of his master plan, he manipulated an agenda designed for persons with a somewhat lower appreciation of how to defeat a system that prepares for reintegration into the real world some years beyond that which they left some time earlier.

Had NZ had a judicial system that included capital punishment this would not have ever happened, but for those who seek a punishment regime that ends short of judicial killing it is difficult to see how reintegration can be managed without allowing opportunity for duplicitous bastards such as Smith to circumvent it.

KUDOS TO THE RUSSELL RSA

Mrs Vet and I spent last night at the Duke of Marborough at Russell ... has the slogan 'Refreshing Rascals and Reprobates since 1827'.   Probably qualify on both counts ... I digress.    If you haven't been there then you should.   5 Star accommodation.     5 Star table (diners kill for their Forrest Mushroom and Matakana Blue Cheese Soup).   5 Star service.   Place was, as always, packed.   Ran into our first female Prime Minister and husband Burton enjoying the hospitality.

Prior to that and leaving Mrs Vet to watch the world go by from our Waterfront Suite I popped over to the Russell RSA which markets itself as the 'best little RSA in NZL'.      President Pedro and his better half Barb are RSA activists in the best possible sense.   I was fascinated to hear what they had organised for Armistice Day.   Just up from the RSA is the Russell Primary School.    The School has a grove of trees planted to acknowledge the sacrifice of every soldier from the district who fell in WW1.   Each tree is named.   Peter and Barb researched the history of each soldier and had made up a set of court mounted replica medals that each soldier would have been entitled to.   On Armistice Day, central to the service of remembrance, a pupil from the school wears the soldiers medals and lays a wreath at the tree that honors his sacrifice.    Great acknowledgement, great gesture.    This is small town New Zealand showing the way.

Well done Peter (Victor 6 Company in Vietnam) and Barb.   Well done the Russell RSA.   Well done Russell.

Aussie Roast Lamb For Christmas????

The older Adolfian daughter visited for a week recently and gasped at the price of meat.

So, Adolf had a look around.



The price of lamb leg roast at Countdown in Auckland is $18.50/kg and the price at Coles in Adelaide is $12/kg.  There's no GST on meat is Australia so the equivalent Countdown price would be $16.09.  Exchange rate cconverts Contdown to $14.63.

Doesn't look so bad now, does it?

Maybe the Mad Butcher won't be rushing across the Tasman for a couple of containers of Aussie lamb for Kiwi Christmas dinners.

ON LVRs

I can understand the need for the imposition of Loan to Value ratios (LVRs) by the Reserve Bank as one of the tools necessary to help curb runaway house prices in Auckland and Christchurch and certainly we never want to go back to the situation that existed in the early to mid 2000s where Banks would lend 110% of valuation on little or no equity.

But perhaps someone could explain to me why the 20% LVR can not be limited to just Auckland and Christchurch purchasers with the rest of the country at say 10%.   There has to be a reason for the 'one glove fits all' approach but, for the life of me, I can't figure it out.    Educate me please.

Retards Know Better?




A company re-thinks its services and decides losing over a million a month on very low demand routes and bails.

That is basic economics numpties.

Now that Hone has been forced to  face the reduction in  the luverly perks,  Kaitaia is now uneconomic, who wudda thunk that.

I live in Akaroa and that is a choice, I have to share the rather ordinary State Highway 75 with increased tradie traffic, vastly increased tourist buses, and a legion of CCC employees doing god only knows and not an airfield in sight either now or in the future.
We are 90 minutes from CHC, it's just not fair and Amy Adams should be doing something about it.

Air NZ loses $50 bucks a passenger on the flying eggbeaters servicing Kaitaia, Westport and Whakatane. They will also be losing dough on other nice to have routes as well.

By road;
Kaitaia is 1.45 to Whangarei.
Whakatane is 1.15 to Tauranga.
Whestport is 1.45 to Hokitika.

The poor wee lambs.

All comparable to Collingwood/ Nelson, Hanmer/ CHC, Te Anau/Invercargill, Wanaka to Queenstown.
And Taumaranui/Taupo, Masterton/Whellington or Palmerston North, Kaikohe/ Whangarei.

Jesus wept. what part of losses do the commentariat miss.

Then there are the retards who want Whestport to go to Nelson, why, well they have no bloody idea,, The bimbo moaning that the Kaitaia people will have to travel to Whangarei over roads that are often flooded.

What part of a company attempting to remain profitable, do these retards not understand.

Plunket claimed because a couple of dozen troughers who probably dont even pay for their tickets are upset, Air NZ is on the skids.

Meanwhile poor buggers on the Wairarapa coast will be rated to subsidise public servants travelling to Downtown Welly from Upper Hutt via a totally uneconomic clapped out train while being paid a  salary over 100k.

I guess the three Mayors will just take ratepayers hard earned and subsidise those who choose to live in the sticks and expect the services to be kept just for them.

Here is a thought Plunket, there were nearly 4 000 000 who didn't bother to caall you but there was the odd smart person who pointed out the facts to you and they just didn't rate.

Forget The Escape,



The Judge got it very wrong in 1996.
Kiddy fiddling, Murder the father of his victim, Kidnap the Mother and the victim to deny any chance of help for the father bleeding out.
Didn't Preventative Detention exist then.
Of course it did but the soft cock Judge wanted to save him.
Why not lock the C*^t up and then work out if there was anything to save.

Why are so many dumbarses making a fuss about his absconding from pre-release 72 hour away from the poky, an entirely  justifiable  program if we are going to let bastards such as Smith/Traynor return to the Community.

Just as that Judge got it wrong in 1996, wait until an equally softcock judge gives a lighter sentence to some equally reprehensible bastard to avoid Garrett's Law, and another tragedy unfolds.

Any offender capable of what Smith/Traynor delivered has lost any chance to ever be free again, and that judge could have arranged that outcome.

No Hope and Short Change

Here's a comment from 'G2' at Pickering Post.

Says it all, really.

Obama's Firsts
Quit trashing Obama's Accomplishments
by COL. ROBERT F. CUNNINGHAM and PATRICK RISHOR, The Gilmer Mirror.
Obama has done more than any other President before him.
Here is an impressive list of his unimpressive accomplishments:
(1) First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
(2) First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
(3) First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

(21) First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).
(22) First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
(23) First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.
(24) First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.
(25) First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office.

(27) First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
(28) First President to go on multiple "global apology tours" and concurrent "insult our friends" tours.
(29) First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.
(30) First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
(31) First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.
(32) First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.
(33) First President to repeat the Holy Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.
(34) First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).
(35) First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they "volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences."
(36) Then, he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.
(Thank God he didn't get away with THIS one.)
How has all this 'hope and change' been working out for you?
It's hard to comprehend all this guy has got away with. Any other president would have been impeached by now.
What in God's name is wrong with our government AND OUR PEOPLE that they grant this guy carte blanche? It boggles the mind!

They left out Benghazi and Fast and Furious. 

Good Riddance.



While we as a Nation hold to a law that says a Life Sentence does not mean life but whatever the formula  is currently, POS such as Smith/Traynor will eventually be released into our midst.

So long as we allow nonsense around personal privacy to prevail over what was once common sense, very clever and manipulative bastards with time on their hands will take advantage.

While the people who were feeling at risk from the convicted killer and kiddy fiddler when Corrections lost him with no idea of his  location, were suffering additional stress and helplessness, it now seems he was long gone to South America.

Unless those who would rule us see that this imminently avoidable mess as easily fixable, it will happen again.

In the meantime, that the POS is gone and unless he is terminally stupid will never return, leaving our shores while the Parole Board and Corrections are muddling their next move as his release looms as the only option, perhaps his leaving in breach of his temporary release conditions is a bonus.

Of course had he been an actual dog his life would have ended in Wellington 19 years ago on a veterinary table.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.
