    Oh, please do.

    BREAKING: Haiti just had an emergency high court session resulting in an agreement to unseal & release documents relating to Jean-Claude 'Baby Doc' Duvalier's indictments for money laundering through Trump Tower. Looks like Trump will regret insulting Haiti! KARMA's a B*tch!— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) January 15, 2018

    There is a possibility of a slush fund – probably not but we ever wary citizens would be interested to know for sure that’s all ok.

    Dodgy corrupt practice.

    “Fishing bosses asked the Government to keep secret what material it collected under a proposed new fisheries monitoring regime.”

    • Stuart Munro 4.1

      No surprises here – much of the fishing industry has entrenched criminality at the higher levels.

      Using vessels obtained by theft from former state owners
      Employing slave crews on NZ registered foreign vessels (which are subject to NZ law in its entirety, including such things as minimum wages)
      And now, not only killing endangered species, but demanding the right to do so with impunity.

      No government that is not a joke can allow such practices.
      Stuart Nash has been appointed to fisheries – it remains to be seen whether he is a comedian or a minister of the crown.

        Have replied on Open Mike for today as this story has got more legs based on a Newshub report.

    Gabbard: North Korea Has Nukes Because They Saw What The US Did To Libya

    ‘At the end of her interview yesterday on ABC’s This Week, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was asked by an incredulous George Stephanopoulos if it was a mistake for the United States to “take out” deceased Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and deceased Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

    “It was, absolutely,” replied Gabbard, because you can’t say “It was, absolutely, you fucking idiot” on ABC.

    In what political commentator Zach Carter has accurately called “One of the most honest statements ever made by a member of Congress,” Gabbard took yet another bold stand that will doubtless earn her many fans and many enemies, calling upon President Trump to sit down at the negotiating table with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “without preconditions” with the understanding that the DPRK has obtained its nuclear arsenal precisely because Pyongyang has been observing the way America treats nations which don’t fall into line with its interests.’
