Please Dear God. Not Luxon. Surely the Nats couldn't be that stupid.
I thought I heard on the news this morning that nz had opted out of signing up to an accord to ban deep sea mineral/oil drilling, but I can't find it in print anywhere. Any clues?
Here's a thought. For the self-entitled Jaffas who flew to their Wanaka "holiday home", let's put them in quarantine before they're allowed back into Auckland - somewhere like a Mt Eden prison cell should be good. Then let's hope it can cost them a fortune...
None of us is safe.
If he got in on a dodgy student visa in 2011, then gave up his course after a month, he should have been sent home straight away. We are too soft. And a student visa should not become residency as of right. Too many are using this pathway to residency and ...
Sorry, meant to say "them". He's obviously dead but there are plenty of others who need to be deported for corruption and exploitation.
What is clear is that not one more cent should be spent on him or on all these BS "processes". Deport him now. No ifs, no but but buts, no maybes. We do not have to have these people in our country. The way he has behaved since arriving in 2011 on a dodgy ...
Right on. Same with the constant harping from so many sources on the emotional angle. It's intellectually dishonest. Just give us the news, information and analysis. I'll decide how i feel about it - it doesn't need to be orchestrated.
There a lot of aspersions cast about why people are not signing in.
Compulsory signins is all very well. However. i deeply resent the disparaging comments about old people and tech. We are not stupid. I think the covid app is a great idea - except I had to buy a new phone to do it. My computer and old phone did everything ...
No, until Roger and Richard.
We're in the middle of a severe housing crisis, a global pandemic catching up on us, dire public health infrastructure etc etc - and all you can think of is the colour of your rice. Oh puhleese!
No, They just want to do what has to be done to keep everyone safe. It's social responsibility, not individual, personal self interest.
I don't have a problem with farmers and tradies using utes for work, and being able to do all the usual business writeoffs etc. But we should be taxing the shit out of city dwellers who have these utes and huge "recreational" vehicles for no good reason. ...
And what about if you're renting a sound place at a really reasonable rental - and you can't afford any more. It has full spec insulation and an extractor fan over the oven. I keep it clean and well ventilated, there is no mould and it doesn't need a heat ...
Not to mention the fact that NZers always aspired to owning their own home for security in their old age. It was never about "mum and dad investors" or "getting on the property ladder" . I find this whole discourse deeply offensive.
Not to mention selling off NZ rural land to a foreign waste management company for toxic landfill, some of it imported. And a supposedly Green MP signed it off?
$280k is pretty good on top of whatever else he can manage to wangle for himself. A whole lot more than real working people.
Yes, and hanging on for a lovely pension on top of what he can earn in subsequent positions - probably not digging ditches. If he's so considerate, let him resign now and force a bye-election.
Keep up the cynicism. He can afford to retire for health and family reasons, as we all would on a very nice pension.
A totally odious man.
How much is Grant Dalton worth and what is he making out of all this?
