    Having a benefit cut like this shouldn’t be a whim, and certainly doesn’t deserve reward.

    • McFlock 1.1

      nonononono, he was following standard procedure. Apparently leading questions, selective evidence, predetermined outcomes, being a patronising self-serving prick, and disregard for the safety of “clients” was all standard procedure.

      At last they finally fucking admitted it.

      Why is he still even part of MSD at all?
      Why does the MSD use failed policies?

    Is Jan Logie in the real world ???
    “To hear today that the teachers are having to take on secondary jobs, visit food banks .. ” 1 minute in. Well Jan a 2% pay offer IMO will not solve the problem of 9 years of neglect. From what has been offered we can start to prepare to amend that to ” 12 years …… “This govt is listening and will take action”. 2% Is that what you call taking action ???

    Feedlots.

    Barbaric.
    Repulsive.

    Ban them.
    And take the relevant farmers to court.
    And sentence them.
    Severely.

    • solkta 3.1

      What is this thing with you how you always want to take people to court over crimes that have not yet been created? Oh well, i guess once you have had your revolution you can shoot whoever you like.

      I agree that this shit should be banned by the way.

    • Grey Area 3.2

      Yep.

      Absolutely appalling. Cruel for the animals and bad for the environment. We just seem to keep making these repulsive mistakes in the name of profit.

      Ban them now.

      But I also agree with Solkta. They are not illegal yet but hopefully before too long they will be.

      • Ed 3.2.1

        • Timeforacupoftea 3.2.1.1

          Beautiful succulent juicy mouth watering grain fed beef, not up to the standard of US steaks though.
          My god they are incredibly tender and juicy and half the price of NZ steak.

      • Draco T Bastard 3.2.2

        We just seem to keep making these repulsive mistakes in the name of profit.

        But, but the profit drive is sacrosanct. It’s what’s made us all so much better off.

    Apparently according to a rnz report the CATHOLIC CHURCH has paid out THREE BILLION DOLLARS settling sexual abuse claims !!!When will they throw out celibacy from their doctrine completely and utterly ??????????How much longer does this incredibly stupid madness have to continue ??The guilt The eternal damnation the SIN the victims The BULLSHIT !!!How much longer will lonely priests all over the planet have to beat off every night so they can get to sleep ??When will these CHARLATANS masquerading as the holiness commonly called POPES call ENOUGH?? FOR YOUR SAKE FOR OUR SAKE FOR ALL THE CHOIR BOYS SAKE FOR GODS SAKE FOR CHRIST SAKE FOR GOODNESS SAKE FOR HEAVENS SAKE !!!!! SAY ENOUGH !!!!

    • McFlock 4.1

      If they kept to celibacy there wouldn’t be a problem.

      And if they reported it to the cops in the first place rather than covering it up and transferring the criminal to abuse someone else, there wouldn’t be a problem.

      There were precedents for surrending offenders to the local authorities for judgement, even in the seventies or fifties – it was the standard line in the inquisitions.

    • millsy 4.2

      It would be unrealistic to expect Catholic preists to be really celibate.

  5. weston 5

    All the witch hunts in the world aint gonna solve the problem Mcflock The problem is being so stupid that you imagined you could be celibate and that by doing so it brought you closer to god .The you being the entities pretending to be gods messengers whatever they are .!

    “This summer was where we saw a very strong intensity of heatwaves. It’ll continue and that’s very worrying, especially in the mid-latitudes: the EU, US, Russia and China,” said one of the coauthors, Dim Coumou from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. “Short-term heatwaves are quite pleasant, but longer term they will have an impact on society. It’ll have an affect on agricultural production. Harvests are already down this year for many products. Heatwaves can also have a devastating impact on human health.”
