It's getting pretty bald-faced at this point.

Are there any....

Just wondering if any NZG'ers have gone on to play in big boy politics... either local body or national stage? If so are they still here, or have they moved on?

Cheers

Nzgamers wouldn't have thought twice about opsec 15 years ago so we'd probably know if there were politicians from this forum

RIP NZ. Your populist leaders will keep on blaming the other side and make false promises while they fill their pockets and encourage outrage amongst the masses. GG

Five Micronesian countries leave Pacific Islands Forum

Quote:
But Mahuta said she believed the voting process was geared towards getting consensus on the best person for the role.
Sceptical, unless their role is to break up the forum.

Compost firm stockpiles 20,000 tonnes of contaminated waste

Quote:
the 20,000 tonne stockpile may only be the tip of the iceberg.

"Conservatively 40,000 cubic metres of drilling materials came in, but for four or five years the council said there was very little record taking and so really the whole process of our submission is trying to find out what happened to it and what's going to happen to it?
Quote:
"We have a consent which is strictly adhered to - the water is tested on an almost daily basis and the ridiculous discharge to air consent is exploited by a bunch of locals who want our operation shut down."

Remediation NZ has a history of non-compliance with consents and was the subject of eight incident reports, three abatement and six infringement notices between October 2020 and January 31 this year.
Thank goodness we've cut all that red tape!

This is amazing.

Georgia bans giving water to voters in line under sweeping restrictions

Quote:
ATLANTA (Reuters) - Georgia on Thursday enacted broad voting restrictions championed by Republicans that activists said aimed to curtail the influence of Black voters who were instrumental in state elections that helped Democrats win the White House and narrow control of the U.S. Senate.

Immigration NZ to dodgy employers: Oi guys, stop it!

They should be out there ensuring compliance rather than waiting on some fool worker to expose themselves by whistleblowing.

Who here likes job security? What about water security? What if i told you war is the best way to kill these two birds with one stone? Wars used to be fought over oil, focus group studies show that's a hard sell due to energy alternatives. There's no alternative to water, so fuck you, enlist today!

Judith Collins proposes law requiring councils rezone land for housing immediately

The last thing our councils need are more powers. The council model of governance is clearly struggling, so much incompetence to be found across the country.

Now picturing Auckland with even more sprawl.

FFS, densification is a MUCH better and more sustainable strategy in most areas.

Ted Cruz’s warning to ‘woke CEOs’ blasted by former government ethics boss

Quote:
After a number of corporations objected to Georgia’s restrictive new voting law, Mr Cruz took to TheWall Street Journal to vent his fury. He and other Republicans, he pledged, will not do inappropriate favors in exchange for corporate money… “this time.”

“This time, we won’t look the other way on Coca-Cola’s $12 billion in back taxes owed,” Mr Cruz wrote in an op-ed titledYour Woke Money Is No Good Here. “This time, when Major League Baseball lobbies to preserve its multibillion-dollar antitrust exception, we’ll say no thank you.”
It's amazing how open the GOP feels it can be about its corruption.

The GOP would love socialism if they thought they could make a lot of money from it for themselves.
