    Can anyone on here give any credence or otherwise to this?

    So today Key was questioning his officials as to why 30 to 40 people under 24 hour surveillance for being Isis supporters weren’t arrested.
    1. Last time I looked Key had done a bunk and palmed off the intelligence responsibilities onto some other minister. So has he forgotten or does he still keep his finger on them but likes the distance to create plausible deniability?
    2. 24 hr surveillance takes a team of 5 to 8 people to do (or so L’Carrie says). Does NZ really have 150 to 320 field staff in its intelligence units?
    3. So far every msm has taken it as read that they are guilty, and not questioned whether the reason the 30 to 40 people have not been arrested may be because there is not sufficient evidence to make a charge stick.
    4. Key is leaving the country after lower poll results, Little is going to get headlines from Australia and not much will happen in the Paris Climate conference. I know, lets toss some speculative rubbish to msm to get headline space.
    5. Have you noticed that after the Australian Police went nuts arresting lots of Isis supporters that conviction rates have been rather short of expectations.

    this is a good speech, maybe one day someone will say it here in NZ.

    Just when you thought Colin couldn’t get any crazier!


    You really really can’t make this shit up!

    In an email on Monday to Slater, Craig appeared to admit the poem was of his own pen, claiming a “copyright dispute”.

    He said he “withdrawn” a “previous offer” and demanded payment of “$3000 per month for the display of my work to the public in clear breach of copyright”.

    Slater, who copied media into the email exchange, responded by saying it was “the most bizarre email I have ever received.”

    “Firstly there was never an offer to settle from you, just a list of demands with nothing in return.

    “The irony of you now invoicing me for the Two of Me poem (which you originally alleged was a fabrication) from a company called Craig and Craig is comically genius.”

    Ladies and Gentlemen, i think we might have just missed the start of the most excellent war adventure numero 3.

    fuckwits, the world is run by fuckwits.


    quote: Turkey has shot down a military jet which it says violated its airspace near the Syrian border.

    Turkish TV reports described the plane as Russian, and video posted by the Haberturk TV station appeared to show the jet coming down in flames.

    A military official, quoted by Turkey’s Dogan news agency, said the plane was shot down by Turkish F16s, and that the pilot was given prior warning. He did not say which nation the plane was from.

    Various reports described the plane as coming down in hostile Syrian territory, and the fate of the two pilots on board was unkown.

      Russias got too much to lose in getting involved in a war with europe/us, they’ve got the oil and gas that europes economys need and now they’re capitalising on the wests fuck ups in the middle east.

    • Colonial Viper 8.2

      Holy f***.

      This is bad bad bad.

      Hopefully it will be shown that the Turkish pilot got nervous and fired on the Russian plane without authorisation.

    • Colonial Viper 8.3

      Reading the Russian sites RT and Sputnik they are taking a position that the plane was not over Turkish territory, that it was probably shot down from the ground and that the plane an Su-24 was at 6000 metres. Also the pilots bailed out in time.

      Basically everything which would minimise an international incident.

      A bunch of stuff there doesn’t make sense of course…at 6,000m altitude an advanced ground to air missile system must have been used, not a so called shoulder launched ‘MANPAD’ system. Surely Turkey has such systems but ISIS would not.

      • Draco T Bastard 8.3.1


        Effective firing range 5.0 miles (8 km)

        So, yes it could have been a MANPAD. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Daesh has such weapons – the US and others seem to have left a lot of them lying about here and there.
