  1. Ad 1

    More and more warnings about property collapse in Australia. This time from Keen.

    Call me dark, but it’s time for Little to lead the NZ market down.
    Little = lead
    English = bust

    Be the dark.

      But did a politician ever succeed by pointing out impending doom?

      • Ad 1.1.1

        Tonnes of them!
        The left don’t do it very often, but they can’t leave the dark stuff to the righties.

    • James 1.2

      Wasn’t but it the greens (who are are in a MOU with labour) who said they wanted a 50% drop in house prices.

      That’ll be a bust not a lead.

    This is that she-bitch Tolley at work here…

    Former Deloitte consultant Murray Jack, who led the investigation, made it clear the ministry was asked to implement policy in an unworkable timeframe, and the security issues were a direct consequence of that, Barclay said.

    “At a time of major organisational change, putting pressure on agencies to implement complex IT projects is unfair and unwise.

    “We are very concerned about the pressure the Government can bring to bear on ministries when their pet policies are at stake.”

    Did anyone expect the NZ media to pick this up on their own without resignations forcing this issue?

    • James 2.1

      Using terms like she-bitch isn’t really friendly to your female readers is it.

      Why don’t you try to comment without the disgusting sexist name calling.

      • Muttonbird 2.1.1

        I think they’ll be fine with my description of Tolley because it is pretty accurate.

        Here she’s been found out to have been commanding MSD to meet ill-defined and impossible targets to achieve a policy (social investment) itself lacking in definition and details.

        Jack’s report sounds very critical of Tolley but true to form for a National government minister it’s all someone else’s fault…

        • james 2.1.1.1

          again – I think that people who are happy to use the term “she-bitch” against women – it says more about you than the person you are trying to insult.

    • ianmac 3.1

      As mean as Fox News is it could only have developed because of the appetite for that sort of bias. I think a large part of the population get all their news and all their opinions exclusively from Fox. Blinkered?

    “Doctors angry at ‘secret’ Westport deal”

    “Angry West Coast senior doctors say the Government’s plans for a public/private partnership to fund Westport’s new integrated family health centre (IFHC) will suck millions of dollars from health care.
    They vented their fury about the ‘secret’ deal today less than an hour before a public/private deal involving the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) was confirmed.”

    “The deal is being brokered by a so-called partnership group, on behalf of the Government, and the DHB has been sidelined in the whole process.”

    https://www.odt.co.nz/regions/west-coast/doctors-angry-secret-westport-deal

    “If this deal proceeds, over time it will strip millions of dollars from health care on the West Coast – yet there’s been no transparency or public consultation. It’s a secret deal being pushed through, with the DHB expected to live with the consequences.

    WTF! The Blighted Future!

      Angry West Coast senior doctors say the Government’s plans for a public/private partnership to fund Westport’s new integrated family health centre (IFHC) will suck millions of dollars from health care.

      I’m amazed that the government manage to get away saying shit like that. The private sector isn’t there to fund anything but to get an unearned income. In other words, they defund it.

    • millsy 5.2

      ACC is becoming a property development company with an insurance service attached.
