Garry, Sam's Dad, is going to stand in Hellbertville. Well not really one of his minions a Mr Simmonds an 'economist', will run under the egotistical  TOP banner in a Vagina contest where the now largely bankrupt MoU will be tested by Jacinda and Julie Anne, as a "toe in the water" exercise.
Based on the long understood mantra that if all  economists were to lie down head to toe they still would not reach a conclusion, this is just another example of the vacuous state Politics has evolved into.

While the confused two names from  the great western plains city of Palmy continues to bang his Christmas present toy drum over Pete Theil becoming a citizen of this nation, an act  accompanied by dispensing considerable dosh in a clear belief in the value of New Zealand as a great place in a world that is seen by many to be spiraling into a possible disaster on many measures, his esteemed leader makes a vacuous State of The Nation speech.

State of the Nation should be placed before the advertising standards authority in that case along with an even  worse, as if that were possible, from his MoU Partner, the screen filler who first rose to prominence as a member of the now historical or was that hysterical McGillycuddie serious outfit.
Now I have great empathetic emotions around preserving culture and language as things Scottish  have enormous appeal to my psyche but with a very clear understanding that should I become fluent in the Gaelic I would struggle to find any useful opportunity to use it. So it is similar in the little size large fashion statements call to make Maori compulsory in schools when there is much empirical evidence that maths, science and life skills are almost totally absent in graduates from the socialist oriented efforts currently being defended by the teacher unions.
Similar with the little angry ones call for an  exercise in the state picking winners with a bribe to shore up a dwindling Labour vote in Dunners by a promise to grant taxpayer monies to developing computor games.

Ffs just educate our young people in serious core skills and then get out of the way and god only knows how many home grown Pete Theils we as a nation can produce.
I have a bridge to sell to anyone who seriously believes that the Maori language, welfarism and state interference in business will do much to allow such entrepreneurial success to flourish.

Perhaps you might be able to tell me how Nationals German born dotcom millionaire who bought his residency without doing the hard yards differs from Labours German born dotcom millionaire...apart from one not being a fan of Drumph.

Hypocrisy from our politicians is thick as steam off a cow pat on winters morn.

Egbut ... in retrospect crimdotcon should never have been granted permanent residency. Equally William Yan should have never been granted citizenship per courtesy of Shane Jones who chose to disregard his officials advice.

OTOH Peter Thiel is an entirely different kettle of fish. Everything published so far would suggest he is an exemplary person (although I suspect you would dispute that given that he is a Trump supporter).

Becoming a New Zealand citizen by grant shows your commitment to New Zealand and gives you the same rights as citizens who were born here.

Being a New Zealand citizen means you can:
• live in New Zealand forever
• get a New Zealand passport
• stand for parliament
• have full access to education
• have full economic rights

As a citizen you have to:
• obey the laws
• register to vote
• pay tax
• be a responsible New Zealander.

He's not on the Election Roll.

To be on the unpublished roll

You will need to give your full name, address, date of birth, contact telephone number and evidence of your personal circumstances, such as:

a copy of a protection order that is in force under the Domestic Violence Act 1995, or
a copy of a restraining order that is in force under the Harassment Act 1997, or
a statutory declaration from a member of the Police to the effect that he or she believes that your personal safety, or that of your family's, could be prejudiced by the publication of your name and details, or
a letter from either a Barrister or Solicitor, your employer, a Justice of the Peace, or the like, supporting your application on the grounds that your personal safety, or that of your family's, could be prejudiced by the publication of your name and details.

Maybe he feels unsafe now that hes been outed?

Perhaps, just perhaps, Peter Thiel, as a potential nominee of the Trump administration as Ambassador to the FDR doesn't want to be on 'our' electoral roll. His choice and nothing sinister in that. Your insinuations are disgusting and say much about you as a supporter of crimdotcon.

It's not what you know, it's who you you really think he is going to cease to be a US citizen....What about his allegiance to us?

"A U.S. national may acquire foreign nationality by marriage, or a person naturalized as a U.S. national may not lose the nationality of the country of birth. U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one nationality or another. Also, a person who is automatically granted another nationality does not risk losing U.S. nationality. However, a person who acquires a foreign nationality by applying for it may lose U.S. nationality. In order to lose U.S. nationality, the law requires that the person must apply for the foreign nationality voluntarily, by free choice, and with the intention to give up U.S. nationality.

Intent can be shown by the person's statements or conduct. The U.S. Government recognizes that dual nationality exists but does not encourage it as a matter of policy because of the problems it may cause. Claims of other countries on dual national U.S. nationals may conflict with U.S. law, and dual nationality may limit U.S. Government efforts to assist nationals abroad. The country where a dual national is located generally has a stronger claim to that person's allegiance."

"His choice"
Veteran you advocating that people who are granted citizenship should have separate obligations?

Noel said...

Anon 8:26
"Must" in the Act imposes an obligation not a choice.

The Veteran said...

Boy ... got that wrong didn't I. Thiel should be on the electoral role ... along with an estimated 100,000 'other' Kiwis who arn't. Hanging crime of the century.

If that's the best the 'left' can come up with in order to discredit the man then they really do need to take a good look at themselves.

Sad isn't it. 98.25% percent of NZ citizens honour their obligations.
