    Perhaps Elon's generating noise to cover the bad news on the driverless car front, while shifting money to other investments before his Tesla fortune shrinks.

    "Rohan O’Neill-Stevens has been appointed by Mayor Nick Smith as Nelson’s new Deputy Mayor.

    The decision was announced at the inaugural meeting of the newly-elected Council on Friday 28 October.

    Mayor Nick says Rohan brings the energy of youth, the experience of three years on Council and a mature mind to the challenges of being Deputy.

    “Rohan was the highest polling candidate overall, and while a mayoral contestant, shared my view that Nelson needs a more collegial Council. It is a deliberate decision to have a Deputy of a different political persuasion to provide balance. This appointment is also about the older generation growing the skills of the next generation.”"

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands — China has reportedly established dozens of “overseas police stations” in nations around the world that activists fear could be used to track and harass dissidents as part of Beijing’s crackdown on corruption.
    Information about the outposts underscored concerns about the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s influence over its citizens abroad, sometimes in ways deemed illegal by other countries, as well as the undermining of democratic institutions and the the theft of economic and political secrets by bodies affiliated with the one-party state.
    Spanish-based non-government group Safeguard Defenders published a report last month, called “110 Overseas. Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild,” that focused on the foreign stations.

      Three countries.

      A Chinese “police station” in Dublin’s city centre has been ordered to close by the Irish government after pressure from a human rights group.

      The Fuzhou Police Service Overseas Station opened earlier this year in an office building on the now-pedestrianised Capel Street which it shared with other Chinese organisations.

      Fuzhou is a city in the province of Fujian.

      The Chinese authorities said the station offered a service to Chinese citizens in Ireland including the renewal of driving licenses.

      However, the human rights group Safeguard Defenders in a report in September said the stations persuade 230,000 emigrants to return to China, sometimes to face criminal charges.
