New Zealand beats Australia for world record skin cancer rates
Posted by te2ataria on March 30, 2016
Crikey, we finally beat the world at something!
New Zealanders now have the highest melanoma rates in the world, beating Australia, according to a new study.
Reported melanoma rates in New Zealand have nearly doubled over the past 30 years, with about 50 cases per 100,000 people in 2011.
In Australia, the rate peaked at 49 per 100,000 in 2005, and has since declined.
Killed, seriously injured… on NZ death roads
DAY 104 of the latest TOURISTS or truth? campaign in NZ
To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.]
- Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 223 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016.

WTF: 60,000 reported burglaries across New Zealand went unsolved last year
“A woman whose south Auckland home was ransacked by burglars three weeks ago in broad daylight says she feels ‘violated’,” according to a report.
“They took mine and my husband’s laptops, they took my iPad,” Ms Dolbel-Neville told ONE News.
Our world class police (!) barely solved one in 10 reported burglaries nationally, and the figure for Auckland is even worse.
“We’re going after those prolific burglars who we know are really hurting the community”, police said through their ****.
