Look! A squirrel!

As the New Zealand Labour Party descends into the rabbit hole of ever expanding allegations, innuendo and coverups over a certain summer camp, the Princess of NZ fails to comment citing the item is before the judiciary. 

Meanwhile, a squirrel has been seen.  The bearer of that news should Foxtrot Oscar and stay away from further wrecking NZ.  The Princess is doing a good job of that by herself, don't interrupt her.  Seems to be a female trait.

And in the end it's always the coverup that's going to get them. 

Alluvium and taniwha

The science with consequences:

Alluvial fans are often ... subjected to periodic flash floods from nearby thunderstorms in local hills. The typical watercourse ... has a large, funnel-shaped basin at the top, leading to a narrow defile, which opens out into an alluvial fan at the bottom. Multiple braided streams are usually present and active during water flows.

The river or stream carrying the sediment flows at a relatively high velocity due to the high slope angle, which is why coarse material is able to remain in the flow. When the slope decreases rapidly into a relatively planar area or plateau, the stream loses the energy it needs to move its sediment. Deposition subsequently occurs and the sediment ultimately spreads out, creating an alluvial fan.

Fast forward to the 21st century:

Up pops yet another climate seer ready to infest our local government. With more rates required of course.

says councils are having difficulty making climate-related decisions generally but they need to make sure Māori interests aren't forgotten

local councils could be making decisions that create problems for the Crown for modern Treaty breaches

And in the same article, the local tribalists have their say, ever ready to accept more bribes whilst not being beholden to anyone but themselves.  I also see one convicted ex-MP fraudster has thrown her outstretched hands into the mix.

The Māori legend was this flooding happens when occasionally the lizard flicks its tail and washes everything out from side to side

We will continue to seek resourcing from them to support our efforts but we're not waiting for them to determine what those efforts should be

Meanwhile in the real world:

No sign of mythical monsters anywhere in Greece where only optimists build on alluvial fans.  Or on Mars for that matter.  Earthquakes and rain do not mix.

NZ is ruled by a mob

In my opinion Ardern has crossed the line, she has interfered in a contractual arrangement between two consenting parties. By so doing she has opened the door to future protests and expectations that all protesters have to do is foment trouble and they will get what they want.

The message this sends to business and investors and anyone concerned with the rule of law is in my view a very negative one. It suggests that NZ is ruled by a mob, to which a weak PM yields.

This decision by Ardern to involve herself in this dispute is ill-judged and wrong.

A short but well said summary of proceedings.

I see the head truck driver that supposedly leads said mob is to grace the  site with his presence today.

Kiingi Tūheitia is visiting Ihumātao this morning with the aim to “seek a pathway for resolution”

No doubt further emboldening the shit stirring rabble.

A flowchart for Boris


flogged from here.  No Deal is the only option.

Enslaved in bureaucracy - what the people really want

keep the British people enslaved in the bureaucratic nightmare.

To remind Johnson and his government in the simplest of terms,  some of the issues about which the British people care the most:

They want an end to open border mass immigration and imposed multi-culturalism.

They want to stop surrendering control over their laws, money, borders and fishing grounds to the unelected bureaucrats of the European Union. (i.e. they want to leave the EU)

They want an end to the continued influx of refugees when there is a shortage of housing, school places, money, health care provision and compounded by a breakdown in law and order.

This issue is especially annoying when the oil rich states of the middle east have the money, the space and the facilities but refuse to take any refugees whatsoever.

They want an end to wasting ever increasing sums of money on foreign aid to dictators and frivolous causes abroad when there is a desperate shortage of money for investment at home.

They want to stop wasting billions of taxpayer's money on a futile attempt to alter the climate by the end of the century. They want an end to the nonsense about a climate emergency, there isn’t one

If there was there’s nothing on this tiny island we can do to stop it.

They want an end to the curtailment of their ancient freedoms by the imposition of rigidly policed political correctness. This includes freedom of speech and the right to form opinions and speak about them openly without fear of arrest by zealous, agenda driven police officers.

I will conclude by saying that the British people demand that we leave the corrupt and failing European Union and all its institutions absolutely and entirely on October 31st, 2019. 

A summary of what people really want, as Mr Johnson's 90-day clock rather quickly runs down.  Let's hope he succeeds with his No Deal.

As highlighted by me, all of it is totally applicable here in Godzone.

This year, upcoming local government wannabees looking for my vote would do well to heed the above.  Politicians of all stripes in central government looking for my vote in 2020 again should take note of what people really want.
