One of our Oz readers (no, not David) has alerted me to the story of two 'fine upstanding' Kiwis taken into custody by Australian Border Protection Officers to be deported back to New Zealand by that terrible ogre of an Immigration Minister, Peter Dutton.

Daniel Maxwell and Caleb Maraku, in separate and unrelated incidents, were parties to unprovoked attacks on their victims.   In the case of Maxwell the attack led to the victims death.   For Marakau, who hit his victim with a cowards punch so called, his reaction to his sentence when he left the Court laughing led to a 50,000 signature petition calling for his deportation.

No doubt Kelvin Davis, crim hugger extraordinaire, will be taking up the cudgels on their behalf and urging the Australian government to reconsider their decision.    One thing for sure ... these two scumbags won't be contributing members of New Zealand society.   Good thing  too that Davis has pledged to empty our prisons by one-third.   That will ensure there is plenty of space for these two when they re-offend again ... as they surely will.

Anon 10.11 ... you don't understand the fuss? I understand why Australia might want to deport them. I don't understand why Davis should go out of his way to welcome them.

Anon ... so you've never heard of Shonky; Double Dipton etc etc etc. Ok when your mob does it. To be deplored when reciprocated.

And we're supposed to sit back and suck it up when St Jacinda sez capitalism is dead. Stupid comments like that deserve to be mocked and, as for the venal Peters, look no further than his odious Electoral Integrity Bill ... not much integrity there and never has been.

As for Davis and shooting ducks in a barrel comes to mind.

"St Jacinda sez capitalism is dead."
Aw when Espiner asked if she agreed with Boldger that neo liberism had failed she agreed.
Then explained in what areas it had failed.
