The House Pig Appointed Foreign Affairs Minister

Don Inglese [“Bill English”] has appointed his Fat Capo [“Gerry Brownlee”] foreign affairs minister, a report said.

The insensitive ham-head had previously commented that Finnish people are uneducated and disrespectful to women, sparking outrage and making headlines in the European nation, said a report.

The ignoramus also made headlines accusing North Korea of having “evil intent” and making “outrageous threats,” most recently against Australia. [How’s that for reflex!?]

Don Inglese likes this thing because he looks like a fat, “cuddly” pig, or because his stupid comments make the Don and everyone else in the govt mafia look like intellectuals? Photo credit: ANDY JACKSON/FAIRFAX NZ

.

Other Capos, including Health Minister Jonathan Coleman, Attorney-General Chris Finlayson and Mitchell are still “in the mix along with Brownlee for the foreign affairs job but speculation around Parliament was if Brownlee wanted it, the job was his.”

Before the promotion, he held no fewer than FIVE ministerial portfolios including Civil Defence, Defence Minister, Greater Christchurch Regeneration Minister,  Leader of the House – Minister, and Earthquake Commission – Minister Responsible.

Chinese man killed by “drowning”, but his death treated as state secret

The man who ALLEGEDLY drowned while snorkelling near the Kaikoura Peninsula has been named as  Qinglin Hu, known as Charles, who lived in Auckland (?)

Hu was first reported missing after he failed to return home from a snorkelling trip on March 19. It’s taken the authorities 24 days to finally recover his body.

“Police initially refused to release Hu’s name after the Coroner made an order prohibiting his wife’s name being published, or ‘any name or particulars likely to lead to her identification'”, said a report.

It’s UNCLEAR why the coroner made the secrecy order. Was it because she is related to high-ranking Chinese officials?

Nevertheless, it’s become general practice for the authorities to treat death of foreigners in New Zealand as a state secret to protect tourism.

Based on the information available, the moderators believe the death should have been treated as HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS.

P Nation: meth contamination making more NZ houses uninhabitable

A three-bedroom stripped-down house in Titoki Place in Pukete (Hamilton) that was decontaminated of methamphetamine was sold at an auction for $410,000 on Wednesday.

The house in Lockwood, marketed as “previously contaminated”, had been stripped to bare walls and ceiling. “Pukete is an established suburb with an average house sale price of $542,800,” said a report.

“There is a problem right throughout New Zealand,” said estate agents Harcourts Hamilton general manager Brian King.

“An experiment done in Auckland proved that nearly all banknotes tested positive for meth. Yet a public emergency wasn’t declared and the notes weren’t burnt but these were at the same levels that houses were being tested at and people being told to get out of their houses,” said Dr Nick Kim, Massey University environmental chemistry senior lecturer.

“The Ministry of Health’s recommended benchmark for a clean-up was 0.5 micrograms per 100 square centimetres, for where the drug had been manufactured, 1.5 micrograms where the drug had only been used in a carpeted area and 2.0 micrograms where it had been used in an uncarpeted area,” said the report.

However, it’s unclear how anyone could establish with any degree of certainty whether the previous occupiers manufactured the drug, or just used it.

Police clash with anti-brutality protesters in Paris again after Chinese man killed

Police clashed with activists and members of the Asian community for the second consecutive night in Paris’ 19th arrondissement, where a Chinese man was shot dead on Sunday by a policeman during an intervention at his home during a “family dispute.”

Hundreds of protesters are demanding justice after Shaoyo Liu, 56, was fatally shot.

On Tuesday, the protesters marched against police brutality in the vicinity of the police station of the 19th district for several hours before the violence erupted.

Police used tear gas to disperse the crowd who were denouncing the murder and the overall police brutality across the country.

The murder has also sparked a diplomatic row with Beijing. Yesterday, Chinese Foreign Ministry reportedly summoned a senior French diplomat demanding the French government to thoroughly investigate the killing and ensure the safety of Chinese nationals in France.

A pilot study based in Auckland and Christchurch found 25 percent of respondents could not afford a GP and an additional 9 percent went without necessary hospital care, said a report.

“There are a lot of people now who have needs. They’re not recorded anywhere,” says Lead researcher and surgeon Phil Bagshaw, adding that 300,000 adults were in that predicament.

“At least when we had waiting lists there was a record of who was needing treatment. But now of course with this National Waiting Time Project, if you don’t meet the criteria your need is not recorded anywhere.”

French hiker’s death kept secret by New Zealand police to protect tourism

Posted by te2ataria on January 20, 2017

Foreword: New Zealand police have been under strict orders to withhold, censor or otherwise block reports of tourist fatalities in New Zealand. The censorship also applies to reports of road fatalities. Currently, about two out of every three  road fatalities go unreported.

Frenchwoman killed on January 11, police withheld report until forced by foreign media to release details

A 53-year-old Frenchwoman was killed in a fall near Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park on January 11, but her death was kept secret until today, when police was forced by foreign media to release the details.

The victim was tramping with her husband, who has since left New Zealand. Her body has been recovered but it was not known when it would be returned to her family, said a report.

“A police media spokesman said miscommunication internally had meant details of last week’s incident were not released earlier.”

Recent fatalities in the area include

  • An unnamed 31-year-old Israeli soldier killed in 2016
  • German tramper Christine Lenicker kiled in 2015
  • Australian tramper James Poland killed in a 130-metre fall in 2011

In November 2016, a French tourist was killed while hiking on Banks Peninsula.

Road Murders: Getting killed on NZ roads is a compulsory affair

Posted by te2ataria on December 16, 2016

You’re sober, driving carefully, and the car is in good nick, but still end up dead on the way to work!

The hundreds of people who are being killed on NZ ‘s deadly roads each year are being road murdered, so their deaths must not be treated as accidental.

About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.  And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.

Here’s the latest road fatalities, so far today:

Two people were killed in Rakahouka crash, Southland

Two people were killed in a violent crash on Lorne-Dacre Road (SH 98) Rakahouka, Southland. A third person is in a critical condition, while a fourth has serious injuries. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-two-people-have-died-following-rakahouka-crash-southland

Fatal crash in Omokoroa [Bay of Plenty of Deaths]

A fatal crash occurred in Omokoroa, Tauranga, just before 7.30pm this evening.  At least one person in the crash, which happened on Anderley Ave.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fatal-crash-omokoroa

  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to government: 308
  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to statistical models: Up to 866

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]  Se blog content for some of the most blatant omissions.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

English tourist survived Australian holiday, only to be killed in New Zealand

David Banks was “road-murdered” in a two-car collision near State Highway 1, near Oakleigh, about 2pm on Wednesday.

Mr Banks and his wife had flown from Australia and arrived in Auckland about 4am on Wednesday, and were on their way to the Bay of Islands, said Sergeant Simon Craig.

“They had been in Australia for 10 days, they had family there and had planned to tour New Zealand for six weeks. The wife is absolutely distraught, they have no family in New Zealand,” he said.

“The couple’s rental car collided with a southbound vehicle occupied by three people, all from Auckland. Both Mr Banks and the driver of the southbound vehicle were cut from the vehicles by firefighters,” according to a report. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11540602
