From the driver’s seat: Nearly there


Get the word out:  Whaleoil is about to change editors, again.

For those of you that have been enduring his absence, Cam is back on Friday and will have to hit the ground running as I won’t be anywhere near the blog during the weekend.  Maybe.

It has been an interesting two months.  I must admit to having missed his company and insights.  By heavily leaning on Teknonym, Spanish Bride, and other regular contributors, we made it through without breaking too many things.

  • Create an entirely new dairy/pharmaceutical industry – employment, industry, taxes, regulatory requirements.
  • Fix housing demand in high demand locations  & grow Provincial NZ simultaneously
  • Save some of $NZ1.7Billion in Aid… AND reduce unemployment benefits around NZ
