As the Nordic country of Finland nears collapse they have started showing Muslim refugees/migrants the exit. In a policy that I call Fiexit they are returning thousands of their migrants to the countries they came from.

Finland has decided to return refugees to Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, as the countries are not considered to be dangerous anymore, writes the Finnish Immigration Service on its website.

Finland tightens the restrictions of giving residence permits to people from Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, the Immigration Service wrote on Tuesday.

They believe the countries now are so safe that migrants/refugees can return to their homes.

Ratepayers’ Alliance campaign accused of being “misleading”

I hope the Ratepayers Alliance aren’t sued for defamation as that is the prefered weapon of choice by people who want to silence their critics.For now they have simply been accused of being ” misleading” even though the council cannot find one example of something that was incorrect in the Ratepayers alliance campaign.

Dear Juana,

Here at the Ratepayers’ Alliance we work very hard with our spokespeople and volunteers to ensure that our research and briefing papers are accurate.  We make no apologies that our campaigns are hard hitting, as our very purpose is to keep elected officials accountable.

Last month we launched our ‘these councillors are rubbish’ campaign to expose two councillors who are failing to prevent changes to local waste services which will see many households north of the Harbour Bridge pay twice as much for domestic waste collection. We had done a lot of homework.

In a response that left us stunned, the Council issued this media statement on the ratepayer-funded news service “Our Auckland” which labelled our campaign misleading and quoted the Council’s Manager of Financial Policy, Andrew Duncan as saying “the generalisations in the flyers could be misleading”.

Why won’t the Marlborough Express run Mayor Sowman’s late night emails?

alistair-sowman-marlborough-mayor-nzh copy

Sources in Marlborough are telling the tipline that the Marlborough Express is refusing to run the threatening, late-night emails sent by Mayor Sowman to Corey Hebberd who is critical of wasteful spending on the theatre.

Instead, they prefer to run a lame story about that “world-class” show Beauty and the Beast being staged in the “world-class” theatre, which will likely end up with a “world-class” debt per ratepayer.

Insiders at the Express say an editorial position has been taken in favour of the theatre, and of Mayor Sowman as they are luvvies who think Marlborough needs a “World-class” Theatre, no matter what the cost of it is. It seems, too, that they are somewhat afraid of the bullying mayor.   Read more »

How dodgy is the dodgy socialist dam?

It appears it is very, very, very dodgy. Bruce Bisset explains in the HB Today:

Bizarre farce, corporate heist, democratic dysfunction – call it what you will, but despite six years in development the facts attempting to explain just how the Ruataniwha water storage scheme will work and who must shoulder the cost if it doesn’t are only just beginning to emerge.

And, as sick of the entire mess as we might be, all Hawke’s Bay ratepayers will be sicker once they understand what those facts are – because your wallets, dear readers, and your town and country assets, are on the line.

And this is the point: most people in Hawkes Bay, those who will have to pay for it, don’t know the full story.

Yes, I mean mortgaging the Port of Napier. That’s already a done deal. I have heard that it was apparently a done deal back in 2009 when, after talks with Alan Dick, the Minister of Finance had the clear impression port monies would pay for the RWSS.

And yes, I mean the extensive and expensive irrigation systems farmers taking water from the scheme will install, because the whole shebang could implode if it can’t be made – every year of its working life – to meet the environmental and other conditions stipulated by the Board of Inquiry.

Currently, despite what some might have you believe, the ability of the scheme to meet those conditions is very uncertain, in part because the regional council has not instigated the independent expert panel it was required to set up to review aspects of the scheme as it progressed – such as the (revised) dam design.

Comment of the Day

The indomitable George again:

Lizzie Marvelly comment (NZH): “Cycle of homelessness can end”.
She claims:

“Before last July I had no idea how it felt to sleep out on the concrete in the middle of winter. I never knew that your bones ache, not just from the cold, but also from the constant contact with the hard, uncompromising surface. I didn’t know that the ground feels much colder than the air, or that sleeping in the city means being woken up almost hourly if you get to sleep at all. I never realised that sleeping outside with a group of strangers can activate ancient human instincts, leading you to cling to any person you know, regardless of how shallow or recent your connection. As the weeks roll by and we fall deeper into the winter months, more than 41,000 Kiwis have no place to call home. And in our proud little nation, we all know that’s not the Kiwi way.”

The Battle of the Somme

But all that my mind sees

Is a quaking bog in a mist — stark, snapped trees,
And the dark Somme flowing.

Vance Palmer (1885–1959),

‘The Farmer Remembers The Somme’

The Battle of the Somme, fought in northern France, was one of the bloodiest of World War One. The aims of the battle, were to relieve the French Army fighting at Verdun and to weaken the German Army. However, the Allies were unable to break through German lines. In total, there were millions dead and wounded on all sides.

The Battle of the Somme, also known as the Somme Offensive, was one of the largest battles of the First World War. Fought between July 1 and November 1, 1916 near the Somme River in France, it was also one of the bloodiest military battles in history. On the first day alone, the British suffered more than 57,000 casualties, and by the end of the campaign the Allies and Central Powers would lose more than 1.5 million men.

A truly nightmarish world greeted the New Zealand Division when it joined the Battle of the Somme in mid-September 1916. The division was part of the third big push of the offensive, designed to crack the German lines once and for all. When it was withdrawn from the line a month later, the decisive breakthrough had still not occurred.

Fifteen thousand members of the division went into action. Nearly 6000 men were wounded and 2000 lost their lives. More than half the New Zealand Somme dead have no known grave. They are commemorated on the New Zealand Memorial to the Missing in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, near Longueval. One of these men returned home to New Zealand in November 2004; his remains lie in the tomb of the Unknown Warrior outside New Zealand’s National War Memorial.

The unbridled nonsense of multiculturalism

Townhall’s Walter Williams reports:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that multiculturalism has “utterly failed,” adding that it was an illusion to think Germans and foreign workers could “live happily side by side.” The failure of multiculturalism is also seen in Denmark, Sweden, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and other European countries. Immigrants coming from Africa and the Middle East refuse to assimilate and instead seek to import the failed cultures they fled.

Leftist diversity advocates and multiculturalists are right to argue that people of all races, religions and cultures should be equal in the eyes of the law. But their argument borders on idiocy when they argue that one set of cultural values cannot be judged superior to another and that to do so is Eurocentrism.

That’s unbridled nonsense. Ask a diversity/multiculturalism advocate: Is forcible female genital mutilation, as practiced in nearly 30 sub-Saharan African and Middle Eastern countries, a morally equivalent cultural value? Slavery is practiced in northern Sudan. In most of the Middle East, there are numerous limits placed on women, such as prohibitions on driving, employment and education. Under Islamic law, in some countries, female adulterers face death by stoning, and thieves are punished by having their hand severed. In some African and Middle Eastern countries, homosexuality is a crime, in some cases punishable by death. Are all these cultural values morally equivalent to those of the West?
