Could the choppers be towed behind trucks, or pulled by horses???

Who stiffed New Zealand Air Force?

The Air Force brass are scratching their balls after one of their NH90 helicopters  was forced to emergency landing near Blenheim on Sunday.

They are still investigating what caused problems to the engine, but decided it wasn’t good news.

They have stopped flights to areas where emergency landings were not possible, including  cities, mountains  and water.

“The fleet of eight NH90s were ordered by the previous [equally corrupt] Labour government for $771 million in 2006,” said a report.

In 2015 the NZD was unable to take any of its NH90 helicopters to the Pacific Islands after Cyclone Pam because they were considered too difficult to transport and were not yet cleared for “island-hopping”.

WHEN the $95-million helicopter is not banned from flying…

“The NH90 is an advanced medium utility helicopter, capable of undertaking a wide variety of roles. It incorporates new and sustainable technologies and represents a substantial improvement on the Iroquois that will provide the NZDF with a contemporary, highly capable and deployable helicopter. The NH90 will be used for frontline military and civil operations.”

Manufactured by:

“The NH90 – developed by Europe’s NHIndustries partnership (Airbus Helicopters, Agusta Westland, and Fokker) – was designed to meet NATO’s requirement [gasp for air!] for a modern medium-sized multi-role military helicopter for both land and maritime operations.” http://www.airbushelicopters.com/website/en/ref/NH90-%28TTH-and-NFH%29_52.html

What’s the best thing that could happen to Auckland?

About 40 percent of houses sold in Auckland were bought by people who own multiple properties

Over the last 12 months, people with two or more homes have bought 9,470 additional houses, or 39.2 per cent of all houses sold in New Zealand’s homeless capital, Auckland, according to a report.

Greedy Investors Blame Capitalism for Homelessness in NZ

The greed to make more money from the unfortunate who live in rental properties, meanwhile, is pushing up rental prices, forcing hundreds of families out onto the streets.

Gary Lin, a 33-year-old civil engineer owns 11 rental properties in Auckland. He is grateful to the government for the favourable tax treatment, the negative gearing, which allows landlords to claim a tax break on rental losses.

“I understand people might be bitter,” Lin said about his large property portfolio. “The thing is that we live in a capitalist world … and there’s nothing illegal about it.”

Clearly, Mr Lin and other greedy investors like him, who prey on the less fortunate, cannot comprehend that forcing families out onto the street is highly immoral and socially unsustainable, despite the vacuum in the legal system permitting this level of exploitation, which has also resulted in a worsening corruption within the government.

Only two things are infinite: the universe and government corruption

Foreword: As the UK voters line up for BREXIT (vote on EU membership), could NZ also hold a referendum on NOT to elect politicians like John Key and his gang whose allegiances are, at best, questionable?

Cheapjack Chinese train makers repeatedly told “no asbestos”

“Chinese manufacturers were repeatedly told there should be no asbestos in trains they were manufacturing for KiwiRail, new information confirms”, according to a report.

Regardless, 40 of the 48 locomotives made for KiwiRail were contaminated and had to be taken out of service when asbestos was discovered; the have still not been completely cleaned up more than five years later.

A backroom deal by the PM over the purchase of KiwiRail locomotives is coming back to haunt the government, says New Zealand First.

“The PM and Minister Steven Joyce have some explaining to do. Why did the KiwiRail tender for the locos get re-opened when they visited China,” says New Zealand First Leader and Northland MP Rt Hon Winston Peters.

“There were already four companies shortlisted, none from China. The PM’s intervention wreaked of a backroom deal done on that trip. He meddled in the market with no concern for KiwiRail.

“Despite this sweet deal the Chinese makers did not comply with KiwiRail’s instructions and delivered dangerous goods.

“This is the price of doing favours and rushing in to sign up for cheaper foreign products.

“We are being landed with substandard rubbish – right now we are paying the price for importing shoddy steel and poor plumbing products.

“Buying New Zealand made, if possible, should be the mantra. When local firms win contracts there is a substantial spin-off to other businesses and communities.

“Economically, we will be a better country feeding our own supply chain.”

Union worried about 25-year warranty

The union said even the Chinese workers might have been exploited, as KiwiRail decided to use them without finding out how much they would be paid and without even caring about the matter one way or another.

“If a company funded by the taxpayer will not create jobs for New Zealanders, who will?” the general secretary of the union, Wayne Butson asked.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is trusting Steel and Tube to investigate itself [gimme a break!], after the company imported 1600 tonnes of substandard steel for the Huntly bypass.

How could any inquiry in New Zealand be independent?

Posted by te2ataria on June 12, 2016

Sent by a reader in Execution City

Foreword: “The grieving family of a man shot dead by police in the Karangahake Gorge near Paeroa want an independent inquiry into what they describe as a ‘cold-blooded execution'”. But, how could any inquiry into the affairs of the government, judiciary, or New Zealand police be independent, when the very same people to whom we complain are those who intimidate, threaten and kill us in cold blood?

Zombie democracy:  Think about this! Do you have the power to dethrone the corrupt Prime Minister, his thieving ministers… Can you remove a corrupt judge, fire the President of the Police Association, prosecute police/”Stasi” for sexual violations…? Can any number or groups of ordinary people terminate the employment contract of a single corrupt official in this country?

Can you even talk about these things without having to face the dire consequences?

[When it comes to government accountability, how much better off are we against John Key’s Clique, than Palestinians in Gaza are against Natanyahu’s?]

We’re going to get more and more of these types of incidents when police execute unarmed members of the public in cold blood

The grieving family of a man shot dead by police in the Karangahake Gorge near Paeroa want an independent inquiry into what they describe as a “cold-blooded execution“.

Mike Taylor was assassinated on Friday morning by a police squad who were responding to a call from his long-time partner, Natalie Avery.

Avery and her children, Carlin, 21, and Amy, 14, say there was no need for police to shoot Taylor, as he had thrown his weapons and was walking away. 

They family say the victim put his hands in the air as he’d been instructed to do by police and was kneeling down when he was shot from the back and threw his heart.

“They came up the drive, over the brow of the hill and Mike was in a paddock and spotted them.

“He threw the slasher – it had no handle – over the top of the police car and he smashed the passenger window with the machete and then he walked away.

“He would have been at least 20 metres from the police car, hands up, bowed his knees and from there they shot him … through the heart from behind. It was cold blooded.”

Carlin, Taylor’s stepson, said he was in his room by the caravan and had just got out of the shower when he heard shots.

“I heard pop, pop, pop, pop, pop – about five or six shots. I looked outside and saw a cop aiming a rifle. It was an execution.”

Police did not need to shoot her dad, Amy said.

“They didn’t even need to taser him – he’d surrendered. He had his hands in the air.”

Police execute “violent offenders” regardless of circumstances

The Police Association says officers are increasingly being confronted by more violent offenders and are being put into situations where they are having to use lethal force. [Even when the victim has surrendered and poses no threat whatever to the armed police.]  http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/larry-williams-drive-with-anz/audio/police-association-were-going-to-get-more-and-more-of-these-types-of-incidents/

The frigging President of the Police Association Greg O’Connor said there shouldn’t be a backlash from the public [just because they killed a member of the public?]

“So that we don’t get an unreasonable response from New Zealanders when something like this happens is that we accept that police officers in this deteriorating situation will more and more be having to make these decisions, and I think that’s the first thing that New Zealanders can do.”

[In other words, “unreasonable response” from New Zealanders when police execute an unarmed victim would be UNACCEPTABLE and punishable by a police visit, or worse.]

Corrupt Police Powerless Without Corrupt Judiciary

Posted by te2ataria on June 12, 2010

Corrupt Judge Lets Criminal Copper Off the Hook, Again!

Corrupt Judge: Drink Driving? Ah, Lad, That’s Nothing! You Could have Raped a Dozen Toddlers and I’d Still Let You Walk Free!

Government corruption is endemic in New Zealand!

Drink-driving cop avoids conviction

A senior policeman who drove drunk has escaped a conviction, after a judge said it was more important he stay on the job.

Sergeant Jason Lamont, 39, was nearly one and a half times over the legal alcohol limit when he was pulled over last August.

His reading level was 113mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

He admitted a charge of driving with an excess blood alcohol and pleaded guilty at North Shore District Court in April, the New Zealand Herald reported.

Judge Phil Gittos discharged Mr Lamont without conviction and said his role and experience outweighed the importance of the conviction.

His lawyer Steve Bonnar told the paper the judge took the view it would not be in the public interest for an experienced and well-regarded senior police officer to be out of a job and the public was better served by him staying in the police.

In spite of the discharge Mr Lamont was disqualified from driving for six months and ordered to pay court costs.

Mr Bonnar said his client had misjudged the amount of alcohol he drank before driving.
