There are times I’m scared to type the “F” word, as it seems to upset some West Coast people so much, not to mention journalists at the Greymouth paper, but for crying out loud people, Cobden knows how to breed them: Read more »
The NZEI is agitating for the government take action on supposed homelessness.
The NZEI is today backing calls for a national strategy to end homelessness amid mounting evidence that thousands of children who lack a warm safe home are also being denied their right to an education.
It is compulsory to attend school…what is the NZEI going to do about truancy?
The Labour, Green and Māori Parties today released their report into solutions to homelessness, following a cross-party inquiry which heard from hundreds of submitters.
“The homelessness crisis affecting thousands of New Zealand children is also an educational crisis,” says Jan Tinetti, Principal of Merivale School in Tauranga and NZEI Executive member. Read more »
The sad weirdos of a neo-nazi outfit are wanting to march for Moko…he won’t care though, he’s dead.
A protest organiser in Masterton has welcomed uniformed members of a right wing group wanting to march against child abuse in the town.
Mother-of-five Liz Rikiti and Amanda Dette have arranged a Justice for Moko march in Masterton on Monday June 27, the same day as the Rotorua High Court sentencing of Tania Shailer and David William Haerewa, a couple who pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Moko Rangitoheriri, a 3-year-old in their care tortured to death over a two-month period.
Masterton scrap worker Vaughan Tocker, who heads the Right Wing Resistance in Australia and New Zealand and claims to hold the rank of lieutenant-general, said his group planned to stand shoulder to shoulder with child abuse protestors later this month and march against child abuse ” – as well as “Islamisation”.

These idiots used the courier bags in the same place they stole them from.
A couple who stole courier packs and stamps from a post shop returned an hour later to post one of the packs.
Phillip James Morley, 33, unemployed and Kelly Smith, 17, were expecting a baby and had ordered baby clothes online.
After the clothes arrived they needed to return some but they had no money to send them back, their lawyer George Linder, said.
The couple appeared in Westport District Court last week and pleaded guilty to shoplifting charges.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Michelle Payne said that on May 4 the pair went to the Westport PostShop and uplifted courier packs and stamps to the value of $105 without paying for them. Read more »
The current weeping, wailing and gross over-simplification of the problems at the root of violence and dysfunction will not achieve anything.
Partly this is due to a couple of vital components missing from the discussion which mean most people switched off long ago.
The media cannot be knocked for highlighting societal problems and marchers might also help focus the minds of people in power.
But for things to change you need middle-class outrage and ordinary punters are no longer engaged.
They have heard it all before. “What do you want us to do?” is a common reaction.
We have tried everything and all we have created is a culture of dependence, entitlement, helplessness and irresponsibility.
Of course most of us know condemnation does not work but that initial reaction needs to be acknowledged.
It appears Andrew Little has lost more support due to visiting a Jewish Community Centre.
After Mr Little posted about his visit to the Jewish Community Centre in Auckland this week it prompted a spate of other Facebook users to comment, including one who said “they didn’t learn much from the Holocaust in the way they’re treating Palestinians … shame on them”.
When another user challenged whether all Jewish people should be blamed for Israel’s actions, the first replied “death to them all” followed by an obscenity.
The comments have been slated by Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy and have since been deleted by Labour, which says in a comment below the post: “We condemn the anti-semitic comments posted on this photo and are actively removing any hateful comments.”
Mr Little said as soon as his staff became aware of it, they began to remove the comments.
They would continue to monitor the page. “We do not tolerate hate speech.”
Labour’s move to remove the comments was also criticised on his page – one person wrote, “if anyone sides with Palestine you delete it? Gutless racist National lite”.
Although I’d love to get stuck into Andrew Little at any opportunity, this is really about the feral underclass that inhabits the Internet. Read more »
When it happens to me it’s just desserts and the natural consequences of my unwanted behaviour.
One comment read: “You should probably euthanize yourself before publicly humiliating even more.”
Another said: “If any pitbull attacks again I hope its [sic] you for your f***** up comments!!!”
MediaWorks contacted police who have since acted; one person has been issued a warning.
Ferals with Internet access. Read more »
The NZ Herald today published the names and details, such as the law allows, of the 61 children killed in the past 10 years.

Radio NZ and John Campbell posted an interview with John Key on their Checkpoint Facebook page.
Now you might say, “Why am I holding John Campbell responsible for the appalling comments that have been posted there?” But you have to really because he has set about crusading about a stupid little pin on the PM’s jacket.
Because of that, his legion of supporters think he is the man…but what the post unleashed is rather unsavoury and shows a nasty feral underbelly of New Zealand, and now also Radio NZ and John Campbell’s supporters.
First some dildo throwing and allusion to Nazis.
That’s pretty tame. How about shooting the PM or running him over? Read more »
There may not have been riots yesterday, but some violent ferals are now chucking about firebombs in an attempt to convince us all that the TPPA is really bad.
Anne Tolley’s electorate office has been attacked in an apparent protest over the signing of the TPPA.
Local reports said that a firebomb was thrown through the glass door of the Cabinet Minister’s Whakatane office and graffiti was scrawled on the wall outside.
The graffiti said: “F*** TTPA & John Key”, with the spelling of the Prime Minister’s name incorrect.
The attack comes amid high tensions for the Government over the signing of the TPPA and Waitangi protests.
Police said the office – which is located in the town’s main shopping precinct – was now under guard and that more information would be released this morning. Read more »
