UNFORTUNATELY, it’s eight years too late!

John Key quits after quadrupling his ill-gotten wealth in eight years while doubling as PM.

John Key has announced his resignation as Prime Minister of New Zealand, citing family reasons for leaving!!

The vampires will hold a meeting next Monday (December 12) to decide the new party leader and Prime Minister.

Key has already endorsed blood-sucking Bill English as his replacement.

“Whoever the caucus votes for will have my unwavering support, but if Bill English puts his name forward then I will vote for him.

“For 10 years now Bill and I have worked closely as a team. I have witnessed first-hand his leadership style, his capacity for work, his grasp of the economy, his commitment to change and most of all his decency as a husband, as a father, a colleague and as a politician.”

Key, calling himself “a commercial guy,” has been promoted by his stable-masters to take up board positions, possibly with companies in Australia.

‘Unending Seismicity Insanity Syndrome’ Turns Deadly

Posted by te2ataria on December 4, 2016

Woman killed outside Remuera garden centre (Auckland)

A woman was killed and her companion seriously injured after a car hit  them outside the Palmers garden centre on Shore Rd in the central Auckland suburb of Remuera.

The Author believes that the incident may have been due to the ‘Unending Seismicity Insanity Syndrome’, (USIS) a consequence of the uncertainty surrounding the Kaikoura earthquakes.

The car was reportedly driven in reverse at full speed out of the store’s car park, hitting the two pedestrians.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/auckland-police-attend-fatal-remuera-crash-between-car-and-pedestrians

The psychosocial consequences of the Kaikoura earthquakes

Meanwhile, government’s Chief Science Advisor, Professor Sir Peter Gluckman, ONZ,KNZM, FRSNZ FMedSci, FRS, ABC, DEF… XYZ (RUFKM?) has warned that: “Earthquakes are disempowering events over which individuals have no control, and which may leave them with essentially no control over how they live.”

“The increased seismic activity triggered by the original, complex M7.8 quake, and the uncertainties surrounding the possible implications of observed slow-slip movements between tectonic plates in the lower North Island, have heightened our awareness that we need to be prepared for the possibility of another significant event. As such, there is a need for ongoing human and organisational resources, perhaps even those of a conflict resolution team, as well as a long-term commitment to ongoing psychosocial support,” Gluckie said.

[What Gluckie doesn’t know, but it will hurt him, is that…]

What’s Happening to the State’s other Stinking Secrets: Road Toll

Official Road Toll as of December 2, 2016 (day 337 of the year): 297

BLOG’S STATISTICAL MODELS: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year and many thousands of others near-fatally injured. [Most probably] up to 831 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016, but only 297 deaths have been recorded by police/Ministry of Transport [minitru.]

Truth about the daily carnage on the roads hurts the massive foreign investment in New Zealand including the $10 billion tourism industry.

As for the victims, who really gives a flying f*ck!?

[The Stock of total foreign investment in New Zealand was at least NZ$ 322,279 million, excluding confidential amounts “invested” through Channel Islands, according to a report posted at https://www.nzte.govt.nz/en/invest/statistics/ ]

But even the fatalities reported by police, comprising about one-third of the actual road toll, are manipulated by government:

Christchurch: Another failed city

Crime surges across Canterbury

Statistics released to Labour through the Official Information Act indicate a crime surge in the region over the past two years.

[WTF: Even the ‘cooked’ statistics are only available through the Official Information Act ??? ]

Police admit they have no coherent idea how to prevent crime or eliminate the cause of it.

In the last two years the crime rates have surged by [at least] the following amounts:

Drug use: UP 36 per cent
Burglary: UP 33 per cent
Vehicle theft: UP 26 per
Public place assaults: UP 13 per cent
Rape: UP [records are most probably destroyed]

Police foot patrols: DOWN 16 per cent

Police Minister Judith ‘Crusher’ Collins insists foot patrols are not the only means of preventative actions taken by police to combat crime. [The fact that the system has completely failed… why am I still the frigging Police Minister… Then again, it’s the government policy not to give a fuck…]

Collins acknowledged current crime numbers were a concern and said police were “working hard to turn these figures around [one way, or another.]”

Christchurch judge accuses Government of breaching child’s rights

A 15-year-old boy has spent a sixth day in solitary confinement in Christchurch’s police cells because there is nowhere else to put him.

A judge has lashed out at the Government for its handling of the teen’s situation, accusing it of breaching the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The accusation came after a Youth Court sitting in Christchurch on Monday, where the 15-year-old was remanded in custody in police cells for a sixth day.

Judge Robert Murfitt said the boy was being held in solitary confinement because there was nowhere else to put him following the mothballing of a wing at Christchurch’s youth justice facility, Te Puna Wai.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/86951169/christchurch-judge-accuses-government-of-breaching-childs-rights

Family Violence: How many of us are being destroyed?

Definitions and methodology [From OECD Family Data Base]

Family violence, also known as domestic violence, is defined as any violent act inflicted by one family member on another. It may occur between partners, by parents against children, by children against other children, by children against parents and by adult children against elderly parents. Here we consider violence between partners in an intimate relationship (marriage, cohabitation or dating) and to violence by parents against children. Family violence has many forms including: physical, sexual, emotional or economic abuse . It also includes neglect (passive abuse) which is mainly inflicted on children.

  • Physical violence: hurting or trying to hurt another by pushing, hitting, kicking, slapping, throwing objects strangling, threatening, injuring with a weapon or using other kind of physical force.
  • Sexual violence: forcing another person to take part in a sexual act when the other does not give her/his consent, including (attempted) rape.
  • Emotional violence: exposing the victim to humiliating or abusive behaviours, including extreme jealousy, intimidation, threat to harm children or others, threat of suicide, not allowing victims to see friends or family, stalking.
  • Economic violence: control over money an d other economic resources (sometimes included in emotional violence).
  • Neglect: act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.

Children and teenagers are 50 per cent more likely to die of abuse in New Zealand than in Australia

The 2003 Unicef’s Child Maltreatment Deaths in Rich Nations report was the first ever attempt to catalogue physical abuse of children in the 27 richest nations of the world. New Zealand had the third-highest child-homicide rate of children aged up to 14 years for the period studied – exceeded only by Mexico and the United States.

In 2007, Unicef’s Innocenti Research Centre report revealed New Zealand’s children and teens were more likely to die from accidents and injuries than those in any other developed country.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/74207543/Child-homicide-in-New-Zealand-How-do-the-numbers-compare-internationally

So short of cannon fodder, even Captain Liar is allowed back

senior military man who left two service pistols in his bag and then lied about it has been allowed back into the army.

The captain, whose name is suppressed, admitted charges of negligently failing to perform a duty and doing an act likely to prejudice service discipline.

At a court martial at Linton Military Camp in August he was dismissed from the army, but the Court Martial Appeal Court quashed his sentence in October.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/news/86902220/a-captain-who-left-pistols-in-his-bag-and-lied-about-it-has-been-allowed-back-in-the-military
