    So Future Auckland or Auckland Future was formally recognised today by the MSM.

    I am interested in people’s thoughts. For me it looks like potential civil war with C&R and also a miscalculation as Auckland politics is actually very parochial. Interested in people’s thoughts tho …

    Courtesy of the NZ Herald for drawing my attention to this but not including the link, which is so frustratingly typical of this tabloid.

    “Chevron is a shareholder in New Zealand’s only refinery and plays an important role in meeting the nation’s fuel needs. We also have a share of the aviation fuels market through our operations at Auckland Airport and are a shareholder in Coastal Oil Logistics Limited, which transports finished products by sea to coastal terminals.

    In late 2014, our New Zealand upstream subsidiary, Chevron New Zealand Exploration Ltd., was granted exploration rights to three deepwater blocks located offshore in frontier basins.”

    Meanwhile
    “In what is being called “a dramatic turn” in a protracted legal battle, documents publicized Monday reveal that the star witness in a case pitting rainforest villagers against a multinational oil giant has admitted to lying under oath in an effort to help Chevron avoid paying a $9.5 billion judgment for deliberate pollution of the Ecuadorian Amazon.”

    I get nervous when I read this type of article and think of the ISDS in TPPA.

    Abbott, the former oz PM, was up in front of a croud of EU right wingers. Bemused. Isn’t Abbott the fool who had lowered the standard required to extradite individuals from Australia. Chinese investors found guilty of a year or more in China would surely be expecting to be extradited from Oz to China, now that’s the standard for kiwis. So its bemusing that the rightwing would be cheering on someone lowering property and other investment in OZ. who knows, even EU tax avoidance laws for a future EU citizens who will have to show they paid tax somewhere of the same amount less they be jailed. Its just unfathomable that any govt would punish people who had been living in and paying taxes, and their family, and undermine their economic impacts, just because they got one offense for a year. Thats the opposite of free trade, lowering the incentives to attract foreign skilled migrants, while destroying built up wealth of for the most part law abiding families.
