No transparency, no pay!

The High Court has ruled that Penny Bright’s Kingsland home, which is worth about $1 million, would be sold by tender on April 24 to recover about $34,000 of “unpaid council rates and penalties” dating back to 2007, a report said.

“Bright, a 2016 mayoral candidate, had been in a stand-off with Auckland Council over rates since 2007; she has maintained she won’t pay up until the council makes public how its rate money gets spent.”

Peter Glasson enters fifth day of hunger strike

Christchurch man Peter Glasson entered fifth day of his hunger strike over his Southern Response insurance claim, determined to “go the full distance”.

Glasson, who has not eaten since midnight on Monday, “has vowed not to break the hunger strike until Southern Response settles his insurance claim.”

“It is absolutely continuing. I will continue for as long as required,” he said on Saturday.

“I am a wee bit weaker and lighter. I am losing about a kilogram a day. I am a wee bit light headed. I get hunger pangs all the time.”

Christchurch quake claimant going on hunger strike: ‘We’ve had enough’

Posted by edmundironside on April 17, 2018

Foreword: “We have a [kosher] white supremacist establishment that shame even Donald Trump, spend billions on an incompetent and unnecessary military, and let a brutal police force [and private spy firms] run the country [and commit murder] with absolute impunity, but have no clean water [and go blind while waiting for eye care, or die within hours of being released from hospital] in New Zealand…” — A Reader

Police State: Quake claimant spied upon by govt owned Southern Response

Peter Glasson’s 1920s home with rubble foundation was badly damaged in the 2011 quake and needs new foundations, but the government owned insurer have so far refused to honour his policy, a report said.

“If you went through seven and a half years of it, you’d know that continuous stress, the bullying and the intimidation, the dirty tricks that the lawyers play, after a while have quite an affect on you psychologically.

“I’m one of those people that say enough’s enough,” Glasson said, adding that his family support his decision to go on a hunger strike.

“Back in 2014 I was one of the small group of people who organised class action against Southern Response and it’s now been confirmed to me that Thompson and Clark in Auckland were hired by Southern Response to spy on me.”

Southern Response spy target accuses agency of intimidation
Cameron Preston, another earthquake claimant, said he had obtained papers showing Southern Response had spent $170,000 on Thompson and Clark’s services from the start of 2014 to April last year.

“[Mr Shand] a lawyer who is suing Southern Response on behalf of earthquake claimants told Morning Report he was intimidated by private investigators for another government agency in 2013.”

More claims of spying by Thompson and Clark
“As well as being paid by the government to spy on Greenpeace and at least one earthquake claimant in Christchurch, it can now be revealed it has also been monitoring three activist groups, including Oil Free Wellington.”
