    No more ‘hot pursuits’?
    Device fired from police car enables tracking of vehicle rather than hot pursuit.

    Maybe it’s time for someone to sit down and have a serious chat with these people?

    “To date, the Nina families have raised and spent around $500,000 on private searches.”
    At what stage does this become exploitation?

    Geez….
    If only Fairfax or the Herald employed a columnist like Paul Sheehan the New Zealand societal benefits would be obvious in most areas of public discourse.
    This morning, in the Sydney Morning Herald, Sheehan slates the narcissism evident in the make work of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

    Had he been writing in Stuff, or the NZ Herald, he would have nailed, dead to rights, the Waitangi Treaty scam, the NZ Human Rights Commission, the Children’s Commissioner, the left wing media/academic scammers, dilly red Len Brown and the majority of the Auckland “super” city Council….. and more.

    With appropriate insertions, here is Sheehan’s message……..

    *** “ [The] organisation ….[insert name(s) as required] ….. [whatever] spent $33.6 million [insert actual figure] running itself. Looking at the highlights in its latest annual report, the …. did some good work but nothing that could not be handled by a division of the Attorney-General’s Department. It also did a great deal of make-work. It is clearly a bureaucracy in search of relevance.

    “The annual report ……. reflects the institutional narcissism of the commission, which exhibits the same characteristics of the individual functional narcissist:
    • An overdeveloped sense of one’s unique worth..
    • An ability to talk a good game and elicit support.
    • An ability to express sympathy, but not empathy.
    • A deep self-absorption, masked by 1, 2 and 3.
    • Highly critical of others.
    • Yet easily aggrieved when criticised.
    • Incapable of taking blame.

    “Having observed the actions of human rights commissioners [Waitangi, media, Aucklasnd Council, et al] for more than 20 years, I believe Australia [New Zealand] would be better served if the … Human Rights Commission Act ….. was repealed and the commission disbanded. Even such complete liquidation would not compensate for the commission’s role in facilitating the greatest calumny ever made against Australia: that Australian governments committed genocide against the Aborigines. [ New Zealand insertions obvious], but when this claim was tested in the courts it disintegrated. The commission has never paid a price for this divisive, corrosive and counterproductive lie. Like all narcissists, it cannot even see what it did wrong, let alone admit it or atone…. *** “

    FURTHER ELUCIDATION UNNECESSARY

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff-nation/assignments/changing-the-kiwi-booze-culture/9535567/Booze-crisis-a-media-myth

    (2) Speaking of which – There’s been occasions where I’ve arrived in the CBD at 4am to party. Now the wowsers have taken away another piece of people’s personal freedom and choices by shutting down premises at 4am. Good one killjoys.

    (3) What do you think of ‘Sneaky’ and ‘Cheeky’ alcohol sachets ? Will they get squashed by nanny state ?

    (4) Heavily inebriated folks coming out of licensed premises can get ticketed !! Really ? Mate – you’ve been hitting the piss too hard in town – we’re fining you. What ? So – what’s the drinking limit to avoid a fine, hmmm ? Where is that legislation ? I’ll have to look, but why look when some clever nerd will tell me. What’s the new charge called ? Drinking and walking sideways ?

    (5) Wellington’s CBD wee hours triage centre was revived. A triage centre. You’ll find a modern day version of Hawkeye Pierce in Courtenay Place performing meatball surgery before patients are transported by chopper down to Newtown hospital. It’s the alcohol alarmist’s answer to breakfast in schools. Both ideas proved to be big floppers.

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/9546151/Women-are-more-Earth-friendly

    Women are better for the environment because they are more ‘nurturing’. According to a SURVEY. There’s a bad word that makes ya skin crawl.

    Cantabrian Shelley Bakker said women tended to be at home more so took care of the day-to-day running of households, including shopping, gardening and recycling.

    The mother-of-three reuses as much as possible, composts, grows her own vegetables and fruit and has a worm farm.

    “It’s for the future generations, for our kids and their kids. Otherwise there will be nothing left.”

    Or – Shelley could’ve had one or two kids instead of three – and then she wouldn’t have to bother trying to cut down on anything. She would’ve saved a million times the resources with one less sprog than her worm farm and other pathetic urban existence (I’m guessing urban) feel-good guilt-shedding nonsense is ever likely to achieve. Did she use recycled nappies, hmmmm? What do you think ? And and and – has she stopped at three kids ?

    Article says women are more connected to the environment – please. Can you believe grown-ups wrote that shit ? Hardly.

    More Greenwash white noise…… bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I think this is one of the children that was on Santa’s lap or near Santa or whatever (they’re not allowed on Santa’s lap anymore, that’s considered too dodgy. The kids can’t attempt to make eye contact with Santa and Santa reads the same pre-screened text to each child no matter what they jabber on about) saying that her family lives in a car. And when this girl is not being given Weetbix by do-gooders who don’t care about careless breeding, only caressing and feeding, in the school holidays the parents send the children out to scrounge a meal. Vending machines are good for trying to score a feed eh ? (To be fair it doesn’t go into detail about whether the girl had put money in or was just trying it on, but it’s got to be more likely she was trying it on). Skin colour and decile please ?

    Turning to other important serious topics – the scorched almond girl has been located.

    Of course back in 1992 why would Nestle think of using an actual NZ child for a NZ advert ?

    She doesn’t remember a whole lot about filming but does remember the plane ride over (it was her first) and “I remember sitting on the table and getting to eat lots and lots of chocolate and then getting to go and run around outside afterwards”.

    It was a simpler time. Running around outside was enough once. Mind you – hyperactive loaded up with Nestle product… poor child would’ve been tearing the place apart.

    I did the same thing today – ate my weight in Cadbury Roses and homemade biscuits and later ran 20km.

    (Tip: The lowlife files – Roses on special in bulk bin 99c / 100g. Grab a box off the shelf for the assortment guide on the back. Then unashamedly cherry pick (not cherry though) your faves).

    ToolsPhone+broadband = high bills

    New Zealand households’ internet and phone bills continue to be substantially higher than those in comparable countries, an international study by the Commerce Commission has found.

    The commonly combined package of a home phone line and 60 gigabytes of data is still more than 30 per cent higher than the OECD average, despite New Zealand prices dropping 14 per cent in the past year.

    High-data, high-speed internet users are the most overcharged group, relative to their worldwide peers, with 150GB fast-fibre internet and phone bills 50 per cent higher than OECD benchmarks and 38 per cent higher than Australian households.

    Even on slower DSL cable services, phone and 150GB internet packages were 24 per cent more expensive than the OECD

    oh yes….someone told me there’s no such thing as the Foreign Exchange

    Foreign exchange market

    The foreign exchange market (forex, FX, or currency market) is a global decentralized market for the trading of currencies. The main participants in this market are the larger international banks. Financial centers around the world function as anchors of trading between a wide range of different types of buyers and sellers around the clock, with the exception of weekends. Electronic Broking Services (EBS) and Reuters 3000 Xtra are two main interbank FX trading platforms. The foreign exchange market determines the relative values of different currencies.[1]

    The foreign exchange market works through financial institutions, and it operates on several levels. Behind the scenes banks turn to a smaller number of financial firms known as “dealers,” who are actively involved in large quantities of foreign exchange trading. Most foreign exchange dealers are banks, so this behind-the-scenes market is sometimes called the “interbank market”, although a few insurance companies and other kinds of financial firms are involved. Trades between foreign exchange dealers can be very large, involving hundreds of millions of dollars.[citation needed] Because of the sovereignty issue when involving two currencies, Forex has little (if any) supervisory entity regulating its actions.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_exchange_market

    This is where our PM made his wealth. On teh ghost foreign exchange. Only, his wealth is very real. Very probably due to it not being regulated.

    Councillor Denise Krum says the mayor’s actions are causing the public to lose faith in its leaders.
    Ms Krum says the council has worked too hard to simply hope the mayor won’t make the same mistakes again.

    Cameron Brewer made a meaningful contribution. The Herald reported:
    Councillor Cameron Brewer said the council had not asked Mr Brown for “full disclosure” of the affair and whether there were any other women involved.
    Mr Brown needed to make a real contribution from his own back pocket, “for all the lawyers, for all the spin doctors …”.
    It was not fair that the the suburban ratepayers of Auckland had to bear the brunt of that cost, Mr Brewer said.
    “The mayor should stand down and that is our position,” Mr Brewer said.

    How many councillors need to stand down en masse to force a new election?

    Just a last word on my banning at The Standard. It seems that I was banned for referring the The Standard as a “collective”. How odd. I don’t care in the slightest of course. This is the missive from Lynne Prentice:

    “The Standard is a program, it doesn’t have an opinion except those that I program into it. And the program has a requirement to have individual identities for a reason. It is so you know exactly what individuals you are responding to.

    I on the other hand do have an opinion. It states that when fools start trying to assign opinions to machines rather than the people then they are deliberately trying avoid talking to individuals. Instead they are trying to communicate with the own arse as they rotate themselves into their own comforting fantasy world (full of nice shit).”

    Whatever Lynne Prentice says, The Standard is full of anonymous authors all saying much the same thing. So it is unsurprising that it gets referred to collectively. I don’t know why he gets so wound up. The Standard (ooops I did it again) is a collective echo chamber of bitter, very nasty communists, stuck in the 1950s. There are a relatively small number of commentators (less than 30) who provide most of the volume. They (literally) have nothing else to do. Most of them are beneficaries, living in State houses.

    A Lesson from Germany:
    What Lies Behind Its Manufacturing Success

    While the prospects for the European economies remain uncertain in the haze of the European debt crisis, German’s economy has reported a healthy pick-up, particularly in the manufacturing sector.

    Since the European debt crisis broke four years ago, European countries have been struggling in the face of tough challenges, such as sluggish markets, high unemployment rates and an increasing debt burden. Despite the negative impact of the debt crisis, Germany retains a robust economic strength that has outshone its European counterparts. The country has also taken up the leading role in responding to the issues of the debt crisis, including bailout plans, rescue measures and closer collaboration between Eurozone countries, which in turn has made Germany’s economic conditions and political development a focal point for the world.
    http://www.tradegood.com/en/insights/viewpoints/manufacturing-lessons-from-germany.html

    One major factor for Germany’s success is a supportive government policy. Germany possesses a strong and well-developed mechanical-engineering industry with a solid tradition and foundation and enjoys a leading status in technology development, again with strong support from the government. Over the decades, the German government has invested heavily in boosting its production capability. For example, the government readjusted its education system to guarantee manufacturers access to a skilled workforce through apprenticeship programs, while dozens of applied-science research institutes are funded by the government to develop advanced manufacturing projects. It also assured access to funding for many manufacturing SMEs via municipal banks.

    Some lessons here for NZ.

    ‘Mystery’ mercury spill in Napier
    From Stuffed! :)

    TALIA SHADWELL
    Last updated 18:53 23/12/2013

    “A “mystery” mercury spill in Napier has flummoxed firefighters and prompted a dramatic evacuation for two residents who encountered the toxic metal.

    A couple busy moving into their new home in the Napier suburb of Onekawa sparked an emergency today.

    They upended a container left behind by former residents in their garage, spilling an estimated five litres of toxic liquid mercury onto themselves and the driveway.

    Napier and Hastings fire service personnel were called out to attend to the spill at a house in Kennedy Rd shortly before 2pm and put the pair through decontamination showers, Napier fire service senior station officer Glenn Drew said.

    The fire crew were then left to consider what to do with the mercury vapour which appeared like “silver globules” scattered over the concrete, Drew said.

    The crew had called the National Poisons Centre for advice, and arranged a chemical cleaning specialist from Auckland to decontaminate the property tonight.

    Centre staff told firefighters that having that volume of liquid mercury at a house was unusual, Drew said.

    “They had never heard anything like that size of it.”

    Drew said everyone involved was scratching their heads over what that volume of liquid mercury, which is highly toxic, was doing in a residential garage.

    ‘”It’s a mystery for us but at the end of the day we were there to make sure everyone was safe.”

    The pair who lived at the house were shaken but safe and it was thought they should be able to return home tomorrow morning, Drew said.

    Police had initially been called but then stood down, a central district police spokesman said. ”

    I’m never quite certain if this sort of shit is written by an idiot for consumption by equally idiotic fucks or is carefully composed by an evil mastermind to test just how fucking dumb the average Godzoner really is! :)

    How do you “accidentally” knock over 5litres of Mercury weighing 67.67 kg?

    Does anyone at Stuffed proof read their shit before printing?

    Can anyone at Stuffed actually read? :)

    This is where our PM made his wealth. On teh ghost foreign exchange. Only, his wealth is very real. Very probably due to it not being regulated.

    What does that mean?

    Do you think exchanges are not highly-competive markets, all subject to the same laws of fraud etc that cover everything else?

    WTF was the mercury stored in that some one could knock it over. 60+ kilo’s.
    Most people couldn’t even look like picking that up.

    ah I forgot it was a vapour? really, and its was like silver ballls on the floor.

    Either a lot of bullshit or someone doesn’t know much chemistry.
    I’d blame the school system JB.

    A man went to the doctor’s office to ask for a triple dose of Viagra. The doctor told him that he couldn’t allow him a triple dose. “Why not?” asked the man. “Because it’s not safe” replied the doctor. “But I need it really bad” said the man. “Well, why do you need it so badly?” asked the doctor. The man said, “My girlfriend is coming into town on Friday, my ex-wife will be here on Saturday and my wife is coming home on Sunday. Can’t you see? I’ve got to have a triple dose!?”

    The doctor finally relented saying “All right, I’ll give it to you, but you have to come in Monday morning so that I can check you to see if there are any side effects”.

    On Monday afternoon the man dragged himself into the doctor’s office… his right arm in a sling.

    The doctor asked “Good god! What happened to you?” The man said “No one showed up”…

    She has an “ol’boy” who apparently has some affection for her stigie so she cant be all bad.

    Once I’ve checked her out at the wedding I’ll decide wither to flick her to you or not! :)

    Whatever Lynne Prentice says, The Standard is full of anonymous authors all saying much the same thing. So it is unsurprising that it gets referred to collectively. I don’t know why he gets so wound up. The Standard (ooops I did it again) is a collective echo chamber of bitter, very nasty communists, stuck in the 1950s. There are a relatively small number of commentators (less than 30) who provide most of the volume. They (literally) have nothing else to do

    Funnily enough, GD is generally inhabited by less than 30 commentators who rehash the same topics every day, even on the day before the day before Christmas. They usually steer toward religion, nazism, semitism, authoritarism or the joys of capitalism. Usually there’s a bit of innuendo when going gets tough because there’s no way the topic can be steered to one of the above veins. That gets a bit boring after the 10th joke though. Funny how human beings are human beings no matter what there political designation, isn’t it? Or do you believe the left were delivered to the planet by a set of slug like aliens who live in caves under Rangitoto?

    Merry whats-it.
