"Bring the guilty bastard in"

Iwi leader Sonny Tau has been charged after being caught at Invercargill airport carrying dead kereru

Weeks later, Mr Plod catches up with the esteemed Mr Tau, purveyor of the finest wood pigeon to be had in the Land of the Long White Cloud for allegedy having five birds on his person.  Only trouble such birds are totally protected in New Zealand.
a mistake, which I deeply regret

No doubt only regrettable when caught and a charge is in the offing.

a fully protected species and cannot be taken or held without authorisation under the Wildlife Act

The beak will already be soaking a bus ticket in tea whilst listening out for mitigating circumstance. 

Others looking for a lynching would suggest "Bring the guilty bastard in" going by the tone of most commentary on social media.

You can take the man out of the cave...

Social media comments from whanau, fans and friends have called for his body to be brought closer to his family in New Zealand, in accordance with Maori tikanga

I wondered if New Zealand's body snatchers have booked a flight to Perth as you read this?  After all, they have form.

Why not the Police?

Department of Conservation is investigating allegations that Ngapuhi chairman Sonny Tau tried to smuggle native birds on a flight up the length of the country under his jacket

Eh?  Why is DOC involved other than being an adviser?   Mr Plod should be prosecuting this case of "one rule for me and another for you" with some haste.

"the Government needs to take real action"

Bollocks!

The immediate action required is to lock these loons up after dousing them with a fire hose.

Followed by declaring Greenpeace a terrorist organisation in New Zealand.  And then locking up any that support such criminals.


"2015? That's seven years from now. Could it really be that bad?"






Seven years ago the ABC was hyperventilating.

Are we living in the last century of our civilization?

Now unfortunately the awful truth has been revealed.

Seven years later, the network has quietly ignored its horribly inaccurate predictions about 2015.

When it comes to global warming claims, apparently results don't matter for ABC.

From the some might say now thoroughly discredited advisor on GoreBull:

JAMES HANSEN (NASA/AL GORE SCIENCE ADVISOR): We can see what the prospects are and we can see that we could solve the problem but we're not doing it.

Picking at scabs on 90 Mile beach

A governance board made up of iwi and council representatives will "open up a huge can of worms" when it takes over management of Ninety Mile Beach

I can see huge repercussions. It will open up a huge can of worms and the rest of New Zealand will sit back and watch

The scab of the Foreshore and Seabed is being picked at yet again as locals look to charge for access to the beach. When the local troughers get control closing the beach remains an option.

There'll be no help from the Nats - after all it was Key and his bent government that implemented the abortion that is the F&S.  It is about to re-surface.


Len, this is what world class looks like



400,000 passengers per day!  That's some utilisation of assets. 

Can't see that ever happening in Lyin' Len's toy train set staffed by overpaid underworked unionised stiffs.


FFS files: TAIC embarks on 18 month enquiry

Direct from the "You've got to be joking" files.

An investigation into the nationwide radar outage that disrupted more than 160 flights is expected to take around 18 months, the Transport Accident Investigation Commission says

A team of three investigators has begun the initial evidence gathering, working with the Airways Corporation and Civil Aviation Authority

The Commission aimed for an average inquiry duration of 18 months


FFS!  18 months to find out that a server or router fell over yesterday without any redundancy? 

Whatever was fixed (or more likely replaced) yesterday by 1600 was the root cause.  Probably was only a case of powering down and restarting some miniscule piece of hardware.  All that needs doing now is to build in some redundancy.

Nothing but jobs for the boys.


Repeating history ignores nature as the government doles out corporate welfare

Over the weekend we witnessed another weather event flooding various towns and houses.  No doubt in the minds of some it will be a "weather bomb" due to the relentless onslaught of "climate change" caused by all that carbon being released to maintain my lounge at "toasty".  But I digress.

residents in Whangaehu Village, Manawatu, lost everything as a rampaging Whangaehu River flooded their homes

As history repeats, one wonders when will councils stop issuing consents for low lying housing?   The outcomes of such events are well recorded in New Zealand.  All that nice flat land in between the hills exists only because of violent flooding.  Yets councils still let people live there.

At a Whangaehu Beach Rd farm Guy announced the Government would be contributing another $100,000 towards flood relief for farmers in the area

Meanwhile, the government continues to dole out corporate welfare.

NZTA soon to have warning flags for vehicles

The speed limit on a section of State Highway 10 near Kerikeri will be dropped from 100km/h to 80km/h in a bid to reduce serious crashes

Yet another Northland road has its speed limit reduced.

On September 28, 2013, two young women were badly injured when the modified car they were passengers in rammed a car which had stopped at the scene of an earlier accident. A crash investigator put the car's minimum speed at 157-168km/h

Because some irresponsible tosser was doing near the real ton the rest of us mostly law abiding drivers will suffer.

Northland roads are still in such a state with seal breaking up all over the place, large potholes everywhere.   Piecemeal patchwork repairs, poor level of finish and lumpy seal overlaps, I've seen them doing the same job multiple times over the past few years.   Approaches to bridges are something else, they've got a degree in making ski jumps for those.  All designed to bugger your wheel alignment.

I know, I drove SH1 from near Kaitaia southward over the weekend during that foul weather towing a trailer.  Double speed wipers for three hours heading toward Jafaland, playing pothole and surface water pond dodgems in the late afternoon gloom and into the dark.

You're looking just to get up to full speed again, then some NZTA / local council desk jockey has imposed another "temporary" speed restriction on your previously open road.  Never fixing the root cause of poorly finished roads and poor design. Temporary might be good for road works of a few weeks, not years as below.

Just going into Whangarei - these speed signs have been marked "Temporary" for years.  A sudden drop from 80 to 50Km/h.  Like the long unrepaired dip in the road at the rail level crossing a few metres down the road.  So long unrepaired they've had time to erect warning signs.

And the last overtaking lane in Lyin' Len's territory heading north has had temporary road works being done on it for nigh on three years.  It's the only northward overtaking spot for miles either side, you keep up with the traffic looking to possibly pass only to find that Len's roading repair funding doesn't extend that far north and there is still no overtaking after years of "temporary".

I get the feeling that the deskbound "road safety" wankers at NZTA will not be happy till all vehicles are preceded by a man with a flag.

Local government increasingly desperate to implement unelected race based representation

Wellington and Northland will not be reorganised into "super cities"

Local Government Commission needs to pay attention to the vast majority of submitters who opposed the super-city idea

Local Government Commission decided not to proceed with its draft proposals for single councils in Northland and Wellington

That is great news!  Yet Hawkes Bay ratepayers are still marching forward lockstep to higher rates and less democracy.

Meanwhile the Local Government Commission is still hounding ratepayers to succumb to unelected race based added extras at the trough.

Local Government Commission ... would return to those communities to work with them and seek to develop other options to address the challenges

(Northland) regional council also felt any final proposal should have included a wider range of options for Maori representation and decision-making

Apartheid NZ coming right up!  It will be added to your rates bill, no matter what boxes you tick.  And the Nats will enable the process whilst pandering to the native elite for votes.


National to support property rights?

It's important ... to ensure that affected consumers who wish to connect to this world-class service can do so in a timely and straightforward manner

National supporting property rights? 

Business, Innovation and Employment Ministry acknowledged the proposals would impact "the rights that owners have over their property"

Not likely, like all parties on the left, property rights mean nothing.


Government is to bribe thieving blackmailers

Government is seeking a "workable solution" with Ngati Whatua over plans to develop huge tracts of land in Auckland

A "workable solution"?  In other words a bribe using my hard earnt tax money. 

I live in hope one day a real right wing Government will deal these thieving blackmailers.  Unfortunately Labour-Lite is shifting so far left even Winston looks good

Cop suggests burglar decides wisely



How cops should be.  Not like the hand wringers we have in New Zealand.

Unions trying to bugger the TPP from both ends

For decades, labor unions have floated the Democratic Party with massive contributions (based on money taken out of the paychecks of members who are forced to join as a condition of employment) and donations of manpower, expecially useful in get-out-the-vote efforts.

The AFL-CIO, along with some public sector unions, announced a campaign finance freeze in March. Unions hoped the threat of withholding contributions would scare Democratic lawmakers out of supporting President Barack Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority, or “fast track,” to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a trade agreement labor groups say would hurt manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

The freeze is across the board, intended to punish the party as a whole, not individual members.

Naturally, there are howls of protest.  Just like here in New Zealand from the left, particularly the unions supporting Labour.
Democrats are beginning to lose trust in unions coming through with campaign contributions at all

Long may the freeze continue as unions rank well below "Wall Street, blacks, Hispanics, feminists, and gays" in the Democrat feeding chain.
