With A New Reserve bank Governor and Derivatives Clearing House Here is What Every Kiwi Should Know

We have waved goodbye to Bollard who did not see the 2008 crisis coming but do everything the same regardless and we will welcome a brand spanking new Governor (more on him in future posts), we will also see the birth of a brand spanking new Derivatives Clearing house (About which also more in future […]

On The Right Of Silence, Torture and the Slippery Slope to Hell on Earth.

According to a report from the Coroner who investigated the Kahui case the father Chris Kahui was solely responsible for the death of his two young sons. I’ll take his worth for it because as the situation stands we will never hear it from Chris himself. It should come as no surprise that Sensible Sentencing […]

Rules for Bennies but Freedom to Exploit for Landlords

Paula Bennett wants to put rules such as compulsory drug tests in place for beneficiaries  whom she perceives as playing the system but when it comes down to landlords sucking their tenants dry with substandard housing and $ 1.2 billion of subsidies (Calculated that if there are 4 million Kiwis living in New Zealand which […]

How the Banks Broke the Social Compact, Promoting their Own Special Interests

This was not headline news; the BBC reporter seemed almost embarrassed. Crimes of […]

Veitch hospitalised after suicide bid

I don’t like men who beat up their partners but there is something decidedly fishy about the way this case was brought about.

Chevron supports Myanmar’s brutal regime

The image was stunning: tens of thousands of saffron-robed Buddhist monks marching through the streets of Rangoon, protesting the military dictatorship of Burma. The monks marched in front of the home of Nobel Peace Prize-winner Aung San Suu Kyi, who was seen weeping and praying quietly as they passed. She hadn’t been seen for years. […]
