Wellington doesn’t want amalgamation – the Len Effect no doubt

The whole country can see what a total stuff up Auckland amalgamation is.  Everything that was promised has not come to pass, especially cost savings.   What has come to pass is that previous councils would not work together so things that would benefit the region were very hard to achieve.

Now Aucklanders are enjoying a mayor and a council hell bent of using its new powers to commit the region to a rail network that is going to cater for only 15% of the population, yet causing rates increases that will be hundred of percent in excess of inflation on a yearly basis for the foreseeable future.

Wellingtonians don’t want a bar of it.

Submissions close [today] for people to have their say on whether to make Wellington a super city.

The local government commission is recommending nine councils that would be governed by one body. But many don’t feel they’ve been given enough information on it. Read more »

Now this is why Brian Edwards and I are good friends

My good friend Brian Edwards has looked at the terrorism/armed forces/war thing, and it is no surprise he’s come to the same conclusion I have.

…in today’s Herald on Sunday, I read that “… The Defence Force has confirmed soldiers will be given the chance to withdraw from the controversial deployment.”

This is apparently part of being “a good employer”. Personal or family circumstances or “ethical grounds” qualified as the principal justifications for not wanting to be deployed in Iraq. Apparently this has always been the case provided the serviceman or woman “had legitimate reasons”. “Otherwise,” said the Former Chief of Army, Major General Lou Gardiner, “your mates would always see you as a person who opted out. It’s human nature.”

It is indeed. But I would have thought that “legitimate reasons” for not being sent to a war zone would include not wanting to be injured or killed. That too is “human nature”. And, as a Defence Force spokesman reminded us, “military personnel are people who have lives and families and individual circumstances that mean they are less appropriate for a particular deployment”.

Brits sick of BBC pandering to terrorists

e

PEOPLE keep telling me it’s the one thing I am not supposed to write about.

And my lawyer says it will be expensive.

But to hell with it all because, frankly, I have had enough.

I am outraged my country is changing and Great Britain is looking less great. I’m also sick of holding my tongue. Enough. Read more »

Face of the day

Did U.S. General “Black Jack” Pershing rid the Philippines of Islamic extremism in 1911 by executing a group of Muslim terrorists and burying them in a grave filled with pig’s blood and entrails?
