Happy birthday to you …
Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Julie-Anne is coming to Nelson town next week 🙂 We are actively trying to encourage more women to stand for council and the lovely Julie Anne is putting her voice to the cause. I'm thrilled about this. If you know anyone who maybe interested in attending, please spread the word
Genter is scheduled to speak at the Greenmeadows Centre in Stoke from 9.30am on Tuesday July 2 with koha asked for expenses.
And…. there may be a piece on TVNZ tomorrow night about it 🙂
Post 2020 that tow-truck represents Christopher Luxon and the parking space is the Nats' finance portfolio.
Significant policy announced: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA1906/S00230/public-service-undergoes-biggest-shake-up-in-30-years.htm
Story about it: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/113794524/overhaul-will-see-government-departments-become-a-unified-public-service
The new Act:
• brings genuine whole-of-government action – shifting agencies from working as single departments to working as one, unified public service, to quickly mobilise and tackle specific issues, such as reducing child poverty, mental health services, climate change and the future of work,
• means leaders in the Public Service take collective responsibility, rather than individual agencies, to tackle the country's big challenges,
• allows public servants to be deployed as required to work on single-issue challenges,
• acknowledges a 'spirit of service' is fundamental to the Public Service and embed cherished public service principles to the community, political neutrality, free and frank advice and merit-based appointments.
Phew – at last!
Yep. Very happy about it. I’m not the only one who experienced gross misconduct and a subsequent cover-up following the restructuring of the 80s and 90s.
It is not two years yet this Government is performing well in important areas though it isn't always acknowledged by some here, so pleased to see this move is well received.
Does Daily Review require assistance finding its way out of the little wrinkle in time it's trapped in?

A musical interlude…
Tauranga's Dead Simple, with a song called Simon no Bridges.
On the CCP influence in Canada.
There was a lot going on in the background that Chrystia Freeland could not candidly reveal last week when she dismissed Liberal Party patriarch Jean Chrétien’s formula for capitulating to China. The formula is simple. 1. Abdicate from the Canada-U.S. extradition treaty and let Meng walk free. 2. Ask Beijing to be nice to us. 3. See what happens.
Freeland quite sensibly noted that this would be a “dangerous precedent.” No kidding.
It’s quite true that Chrétien knows his way around the parasitical Communist Party elites that have lately decided to scuttle any of the institutions of the global order that would resist Beijing’s efforts to reshape the world in its own image and likeness. Chrétien’s 15 years of service to Chinese and Canadian corporations as a lobbyist, adviser, deal-maker, consultant and errand runner began officially only days after he resigned as Prime Minister after a decade in office in 2003.
The Euthanasia Bill has passed its second reading about 70 to 50. Good so far.
We have just celebrated Matariki – some may enjoy this information and site by this tohunga.
For me I contemplated that the Māori New Year is decided by observation – things have to be correct for the timing to be correct. Humans fitting with nature by observing and listening. Pity many have forgotten the rhythms of nature – we change that I think.
Kei te tika tau, Marty. Kei te tika tau.
Happy new year marty. I agree with what you say about getting back in sync with the environment. The winter solstice is my new year.
Trump with the reality check.
“….in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House. I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet….”
and if the dotard would actually tweet at the correct person he would have a point but he didn't so he does not. He is still nothing more then a shit flinging wanker. And for what its worth, she was asked if she were to go should they win. Should/could/would/ you know those words of speculation/anticipation.
Good on her tho for standing up for what she believes, and btw, Maui, this is one of the very few white athletes that did bend the knee in support of Colin Kaepernick, so really i think she really cares not much, and neither did the women who was tagged by the dumbfuck in the white house.
Rapinoe won a gold medal in 2012 and a World Cup in 2015.
But you're with the rapist. Nice.
Nerve wracking watching the black caps playing Pakistan. Go the caps!
