Heavily Censored Road Fatality Reports

“Couple resort to sleeping in library as capital’s rent crisis deepens”
What does a rigged economy look like???
“A graduate student spent a night sheltering in Victoria University’s library with her partner, amid reports of students couch-surfing, sleeping on floors and living in tents while they struggle to find homes.
“Georgia Irvine’s situation became so dire she considered quitting her job and moving out of the city – even writing her resignation letter on the morning when an flat offer finally came.”
“When there’s students [reportedly] living in tents you don’t need any more indication that there’s a rental crisis in the city,” said the president of Students’ Association at Victoria University of Wellington.
“The fact that the prime minister is saying it’s a ‘problem of success’ – that’s just ridiculous, because it may be that we are successful but how are you supposed to get students into the city to study when they have nowhere to live?” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/education/90374040/couple-resort-to-sleeping-in-library-as-capitals-rent-crisis-deepens
Ministry of Transport Continues to Resurrect the Road Dead

At least three of an unknown number of Wednesday’s road fatalities were reported by police on March 15; however, two of the dead have since been statistically resurrected by Minitru:
1. Fatal crash in Hawke’s Bay
One person was killed violently after the car he was driving was struck by a truck in Clive, Hawke’s Bay.
2. Fatal crash in Pukaki
“Police can confirm one of the two cyclists involved in a serious crash with a truck on Tekapo-Twizel Road this morning has died. “The second cyclist has been flown to Christchurch Hospital with critical injuries. The crash happened at about 6.20am this morning, near the Mount Cook turnoff in Pukaki.”
3. Fatal crash on SH2 / SH58 intersection, Lower Hutt, Wellington
A person was killed in a crash between a car and a truck at the intersection of State Highways 2 and 58, Lower Hutt this morning.

Then why, oh why, every kiwi dreams of moving their shit across the ditch???
Happy Planet Index has ranked Australia as the 105th happiest country, out of 140, and New Zealand, wait for it, 67 places higher at 38th.
Why is it then everyone and their uncles in this country dream of moving to Australia one day?
[The pathetic, totally discredited World Happiness Report, most probably paid for out of the UN funds by a certain senior official, had previously ranked NZ in the top 10 happiest country, but just one place ahead of Australia.]
NZ scored poorly on the ecological footprint, ranking 119th, but ahead of Australia at 139th out of 140.
The swine-sewage-infested Luxembourg came last on the ecological footprint front, and was the 139th candidate overall, just one place ahead of the “worst” country, Chad.
“The Happy Planet Index measures what matters: sustainable wellbeing for all” according to its website.
“Wealthy Western countries, often seen as the standard of success, do not rank highly on the Happy Planet Index.”
“Instead, several countries in Latin America and the Asia Pacific region lead the way by achieving high life expectancy and wellbeing with much smaller Ecological Footprints.
“The Happy Planet Index provides a compass to guide nations, and shows that it is possible to live good lives without costing the Earth.”
Happy Planet Index: Top 20 Happiest Countries
1. Costa Rica
2. Mexico [Is Trump a factor?]
3. Colombia [YKM?]
4. Vanuatu [Only if you can,t live without earthquakes!]
5. Vietnam [REALLY?]
6. Panama [Will they pay you?]
7. Nicaragua [JIO]
8. Bangladesh [YFKM?]
9. Thailand [Are you a sex pervert?]
10. Ecuador [Doing more with less?]
11. Jamaica [What did you inhale for breakfast?]
12. Norway [Do not marry locally!]
13. Albania [Ouch!]
14. Uruguay [Rrrrrrrrrrrr…]
16. Indonesia [What about China?]
17. El Salvador [Any shred of evidence?]
18. The Netherlands [Promiscuity a factor?]
19. Argentina [And Chile?]
20. The Philippines [How many hurricanes does it take to change your mind?]

Department of Conservation unable to protect orca in NZ waters
A Coromandel harbourmaster has been stood down after helping to free an entangled orca using a Waikato Regional Council vessel.
The rescue attempt took place after the Department of Conservation (DOC) failed to send their people to free the drowning whale, said Dr Ingrid Visser of the Orca Research Trust.
“The breeding female was trapped by a cray pot line for 16 hours before locals acted,” she said.
Visser called DOC’s inaction “inexcusable”.
“The Coromandel Peninsula has had at least three orca entanglements that I know of, so the Department of Conservation should be well prepared for this.”
The harbourmaster has been taken off operational duties until further notice, said Waikato Regional Council chief executive Vaughan [butt] Payne.
New Zealand has the highest rate of orca entanglement in cray pots in the world, Visser said.
“There are about 100 female orca around New Zealand and here we have a breeding age female left to fend for herself with the help of her family – it’s deplorable.”
Gail Thwaites, one of numerous people who had attempted to contact DOC about the orca, felt disgusted.
“DOC didn’t do their job.
“I think it’s disgusting that the harbourmaster was stood down. He was acting in good faith with good intentions to save this whale. I’d love to know what the story would be if nothing was done and the whale died.”

Eva Martha Harrison, 63, a registered Hamilton nurse stole hundreds of dollars from a rest home patient with dementia. It’s not known how many other patients the has ripped off in her 44-year career.
“She was fired from that job in July 2014, one month after the theft. She subsequently applied for a position at the Waikato District Health Board.”

Apartheid New Zealand
Maori imprisoned at twice rate of Europeans for same crime
Thanks to the apartheid system, Maori are twice as likely to go to jail than Pakeha when convicted of assault.
“Ministry of Justice figures reveal in 2015, 26.3 per cent of Maori convicted of assault were imprisoned, compared to less than 13 per cent of Europeans – when both were found guilty of the same crime.” http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11709631

Half of New Zealanders starting a new life in Australia have experienced racism or discrimination
New Zealanders and South Sudanese migrants to Australia feel they are more discriminated against among all migrant groups, according to a survey of more than 10,000 people.
Migrants feel less optimistic the longer they stay in Australia, the report has found.
Australians going to New Zealand do qualify for full citizenship, but if you come the other way, you don’t.
“New Zealanders who come here can come by their passport, but the consequence of that is there are some benefits that they don’t get,” said Professor Markus of Monash University.
Professor Andrew Markus said many New Zealanders, who hold Special Category Visas, feel they are given a “harsh deal” in Australia because they can live and work here but are not eligible to vote, receive welfare, or other benefits.
“At one level they should know what they’re getting themselves into because it’s very clearly explained to them,” he said.
“Nonetheless people feel resentment having worked in this country for years, paid their taxes, contributed to the community and then having difficulties and not being able to get Centrelink benefits. [See Australians Today report.]
“They also resent the fact that an Australian going to New Zealand does qualify for full citizenship but if you come the other way, you don’t.”
More than 200,000 New Zealanders on these visas, can’t get any help from Centrelink, it’s hard for kids going to university to get HECS, and they don’t get to vote, says the report.
“Both New Zealand and South Sudanese migrants also reported low levels of trust, with Kiwis holding a very little trust in political parties (10 per cent) and the South Sudanese reporting the lowest level of trust in the police (24 per cent) out of any other group.”
“Migrants from South Sudan bear the brunt of discrimination, with the report’s author Professor Andrew Markus describing the level of colour prejudice towards them as ‘off the scale'”.
[The second edition of this report, originally published by abc.net.au on Tuesday, has been heavily redacted and partially censored.]
