    Fascinating. Bling hands over the responsibility for calling an inquiry to the very organisation who will the subject of the inquiry.

    A decision on whether an inquiry or further investigation is needed into allegations an SAS raid led to civilian deaths will be based on advice from the Chief of Defence Force.

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11828777

    Planet English is weirder than planet Key.

    • weka 1.1

      National, taking the piss with our democracy since a bloody long time now. It’s not like this stuff was going to stop after Key left.

      • Anne 1.1.1

        I’ll be interested in Hager’s and Stephenson’s response. The once was an SAS soldier chief of the alleged perpetrators, conducts an impartial investigation into the claims? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    • Bill 1.2

      I think ianmac might be right – sadly.

      And when I read the bulk of the responses on the Wayne Mapp post….

      Anyway, I’m starting to wonder if people know what accountability is, or whether it’s enough these days to spin a piece of ‘feel good’ pap to send the kiddies and their mommas and their poppas to sleep again.

      • One Two 1.2.1

        How can those who have ‘no idea’ who they are, possibly be able to mount a critical thinking resistance..

        ‘The meek shall inherit the earth’

        And ‘the left’ will cheer them on…enviously…while virtue signaling their discontent…

        • Ant 1.2.1.1

          “The meek shall inherit what’s left of the earth once the unmeek have had gotten through with it” (B.C)

          • mickysavage 1.2.1.1.1

            +1

          • One Two 1.2.1.1.2

            The meek are the evil which has taken over using weapons such as language, legislation, political systems and ‘money’… The war machine are the same meek and evil doers

            The meek are also those souls who manage the systems (weapons) owned and controlled by the meek. The quizzlings, the managers for example, John Key and Phil Goff, Lloyd Blankfein…the heads of industry, politicians et al..

            They are the meek..as are those who ‘exist’ trapped within the confines of weaponised frameworks

      • Yes Bill agree. I’m resigned to the fact that this flurry of hope has cunningly been directed to the fizzer bin. At least it is not too close to the election to cause much harm. Time for all of us to do our honest bit to ensure we can muster the numbers to arse hole these devious tories.- nothing flash or outlandish, putting up hoardings, attending meetings, donating ,time/effort.

    • SpaceMonkey 1.3

      Good grief… that is outrageous. ICC here we come!

    • Cinny 1.4

      The fact the outgoing PM is fearful of an independent inquiry is blindingly obvious with this recent development.

      Who is running the bloody country? The NZDF? Certainly not the sock puppet outgoing PM.

      Heard something very interesting the other day, there was a gathering of national party members, the members have decided to vote NZ First this year. Not as tactical voting, but because they too are sick and tired of the outgoing government. Straight up true story.

      The outgoing PM continuing to spin this story is losing votes rapidly. His choice.

      Nothing to hide nothing to fear?

      Are the NZDF hiding everything due to fear of the truth coming out?
      There is no other plausible reason for their reluctance.

      Maybe they’ve been working flat out the last two weeks trying to bury things even deeper? Meanwhile the outgoing PM delays making a decision, giving the NZDF more time to ‘get things sorted’; probably aided and abetted by [deleted] outgoing Minister of Defence.

      [irrelevant, and unacceptable bigotry. – weka]

        [please read the Policy. Language that has the effect of excluding others is not acceptable (in this case shaming of a class of people) – weka]

      • Cinny 1.4.2

        Apologies

        • garibaldi 1.4.2.1

          This was totally predictable. It is a bridge too far for us to admit our soldiers aren’t perfect. After all , as has been stated elsewhere, the av. Joe Blogg sees it as an ‘us’ verses ‘them’ , and we are always the goodies.

        • exkiwiforces 1.4.2.2

          I wasn’t offended by her comments, someone’s got to let off a bit stream now and again.

          • In Vino 1.4.2.2.1

            As you persistently do.

            • exkiwiforces 1.4.2.2.1.1

              Well you could do my job if you want too?
              There’s nothing like getting shot at on ground or in the air, or someone trying to blow you up, digging up dead bodies with smell of rotten flesh that doesn’t leave you or digging up the remains of peaceful protesters who have their hands tried with barbed wire with bullet hole in the back of the head, seen the use rape a weapon of war on both sex’s (boys), standing in between armed uniform thugs and defenceless women and children who have raped by those thugs who want to carry on where they left off, not knowing if you been expose to a transmitted blood disease while you are trying save a enemy combatants/non-combatants who have been hacked by a machete or been shot, or missing limbs etc, sleep rougher than homeless and eat something you won’t fed your pet on, have your government/ senior leadership leave you out on a limp, somewhere among all that madness and more, delivering the odd baby and see grown men cry with happiness at the new born and carry on like a new born father.
              If that is not enough for you there is mental side to it. Having your mate (NZ Army) KIA during Peacekeeping operation (There’s cover up for you)and being there for his burial, bury 2 mates who committed suicide, being RTH because you attempted suicide in theatre, being committed under mental heath act because you had another crack at suicide again, lose your firearms, keeping have nightmares where your poor partner cops it 24/7, spend 24hrs of the day up to your eyeball on drugs to make you happy, battle the VA and medical system for your benefits, you are so *****up that you jump at your own shadow or seek cover when alarms go off or think the car that is driving behind you with no lights is trying blow you up. I have PTSD and host of other Peacekeeping/ war like metal illness to boot.

              This is exkiwiforces the workclass kid from Hornby CHCH in the raw, I don’t dress things up just because it might hurt someone’s feelings and I tell you as it is. There are senior Labour people here on this blog who visit here and might know who I am why because Helen Clark and senior leadership group use to visit my elderly grandfather and grandmother in Nelson. Who was born and bred in Blackball and both were Labour to the day they passed away. My Dad was union organizer for the then NZ Engineers Union in CHCH and a former miner from Broken Hill.

              I’ve seen the best and worst of humankind can offer incl the night I had dinner in the Beehive with my dear friend or I should really call him a mate Tim Barrnett. That night I saw something that I never in life thought would happen in the Beehive this asshole from National party MP called my mate every name under the sun because my mate was gay in front of his wife I think and me. It was and the only time felt defenceless/ powerless in my life and still fell guilty that I didn’t a thing about and since that night I go into bat for anyone.

              This is letting stream off In Vino.

              BTW, I’ve never told my parents or my partner half the stuff I’ve posted here.

              • Anne

                Keep at it exkiwiforces. You’ve actually been there… and the hurt never really goes away. Don’t let patronising clowns deter you from telling it as you have seen and experienced it.

                • exkiwiforces

                  Thank you for your kind comments, I find too many people live in there own bubble now days (The world according to them) sometimes and if’s not out of a book or not what they have been taught at Uni in regards to Peacekeeping etc they won’t believe you even if you have up been up to your neck in shit.

                  I try and explain what’s it like operating in places like the Gan/ doing peacekeeping etc. We are place in positions where we are a rock in a hard place, dammed if we do and dammed if we don’t. Our life is measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days etc and sooner or later your number will come up.

    Useful conversation tonight with a New Zealander who is the CE of a steel pipe company based in Hong Kong:
    In essence, watch out for gradual Chinese government control.

    – When the Umbrella protests started up in Hong Kong, China simply shut almost all immigration into Hong Kong. The economy fell into a pit. The Hong Kong executive cried out. And the Umbrella Group were broken up and withered away. Hong Kong executive get the money-flow back.

    – When the Lotte Group allowed their South Korean golf courses to be used for Korean missile defence radar, Chinese mainland Lotte shops were firebombed and they are now making functionally no sales in China’s main cities.

    – Now, Chinese tourists won’t even get off the cruise ship when they get into a South Korean port. The joys of fully state-directed media with punishment and shame as its primary cultural directive.

    – When New Zealand made a complaint about their steel, all of a sudden our Kiwifruit exports to mainland China got really really hard.

    – Same with the current visit. The Premier was clear that they will squeeze our milk exports if we so much as breathe about their steel or indeed any other criticism comes their way.

    A good conversation about the accelerating politics of neocolonial and neo-patrimonial politics in the region.

    Because we don’t laugh enough.

    40 years Of marriage..

    A married couple in their early 60’s are celebrating their
    40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.

    Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table.
    She said, ‘For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.’

    The wife answered, ‘Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.’

    The fairy waved her magic wand and – poof! –
    two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her Hands.

    The husband thought for a moment:
    ‘Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I’m sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.’

    The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed,
    But a wish is a wish.!

    So the fairy waved her magic wand and Poof !…
    The husband became 92 years old.

    The moral of this story:
    Men who are ungrateful bastards should
    Remember fairies are female…..

    science, specimens and studies?
    or expand some running/ track and field spaces?

    the people want bread and circuses, and who needs science and studies anyways?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2017/03/29/a-university-is-eliminating-its-science-collection-to-expand-a-running-track/

    The curators were given 48 hours to find a new place on campus to store the collection — something they weren’t able to do. Now they must get another institution to take their several million specimens. Their hard deadline is July, when the track renovations are slated to begin. And if the collection isn’t moved by then, curators said, it will be destroyed.
