Ignorance is cold and mouldy

ote.

I have owned my own home on three occasions, have been a landlord of four properties and am currently a tenant. I feel completely qualified to criticise the twitter conversation started yesterday by journalist Angela Cuming, which is a barely disguised beat up of landlords.

First up let’s look at Jeremy who admits that he cannot afford to heat every room in the house. Woop de doo. Most people heat only the rooms that they are using. Why would anyone heat an empty room? Most cost-conscious people use oil heaters in bedrooms as they use less electricity and are not expensive to buy, plus they do not cause the same amount of condensation that un-flued gas heaters do.

Instead of going to the Warehouse and purchasing an oil heater for $65 each for the rooms they are using he seriously expects his landlord to pay $2000+ dollars to buy and install a heat pump (that he won’t be able to afford to run) for one room, or to spend thousands to install an HRV system. The HRV admittedly would make a difference because it would ventilate a house even with ignorant tenants who refuse to crack open a couple of windows.

Kirton resigns before review revealed

When it comes to politics I do not believe in coincidences. Andrew Kirton has resigned just before the three month Labour Party review of sexual assault at the Young Labour camp is due to be released.

Surprisingly he expects us to believe that right after the party he worked so hard to get into power finally achieved that power, he had planned to leave his plum position for the private sector before even a year had passed. This, despite him previously expressing his ambition to become an MP and despite him being so keen to have the job that he left “a high-powered job in London 18 months out from the election last year to run the party’s campaign”

Why would someone resign from a job just when their party is at an all-time high? Labour will have money pouring in at the moment. People will be keen to do them favours. Andrew Kirton’s job will be the easiest it has ever been so something else has to be behind this resignation and I strongly suggest that it is linked to the sexual abuse and alcohol scandal and Kirton’s handling of it.

Whaleoil chats to Facebook ‘killer’

Have you ever wondered what motivates some people to make death threats or to incite murder on social media? Have you ever wondered how they justify it to themselves? Well, wonder no longer because I have a transcript for our readers of my Facebook conversation with one of the people who called for Lauren Southern to be killed on Radio Tarana’s Facebook page.

I started the conversation by sending the person two screenshots and by commenting on what they said.

**I have redacted identifying details because the purpose of this post is not to punish the person for their ‘error of judgement’ but to gain an insight into what makes people think that it is okay for them to call for someone to be killed.

Transcript:

Person: Whats wrong with my pic?

Whaleoil: She should be [redacted]? You are calling for her murder!

Person: Making religion statements is not right. I was angry

Whaleoil: We have freedom of speech in NZ we have no blasphemy laws. There is no Sharia law here we are free to criticise anything and anyone.

Person: But that’s not I meant. Really.

Whaleoil:  There is only one meaning for the word [ redacted]

Person: We are free in the Islands too. I also can say what I feel ..so y this

Whaleoil: It is not legal to incite murder that is against the law here in New Zealand. If you lived in New Zealand the police would be paying you a visit.

Person: But for Muslims its a big deal calling their god gay.

Promoting religion in New Zealand’s secular police force is not okay

JARRED WILLIAMSON/STUFF
Inspector Naila Hassan said she didn’t tell anyone about her religion in an effort to fit in.

In the same month that an article is published claiming that a New Zealand police officer hid the fact that she was a Muslim, (a police officer who has risen through the ranks to become an inspector) we saw an article where a non-Muslim police commander thought it acceptable to wear a blue tablecloth on her head.

Photoshop: The Ministry of Silly hats

YES it is a photoshop.

NO the silly hats are not photoshopped on.

Is this a glimpse of New Zealand’s cultural and legal future under so-called ‘progressive’ leadership?

Is there a leader out there who will stand up for  New Zealand law and New Zealand cultural values and who will strongly reject Sharia law and religious clothing?

Is there a leader out there who will insist that the NZ police force returns to being a secular organisation?

We are not living under Sharia law…yet.

New Zealand women are not sexually segregated…yet.

My daughter is not forced to cover her head like the women in Iran are…yet

How private landlords, agents & home buyers will be affected by Meth U-turn

The government’s U-turn on the safety of Meth contaminated houses has conveniently freed up approximately 240 state houses during a rental home shortage. The U-turn was enabled by the sudden appearance of a report that states that there is no evidence of risk even though the absence of evidence is not evidence of safety. Anecdotal evidence like our guest post this week suggests that the science is far from settled on the safety of even low levels of meth contamination in a home.

One of the most shocking things to emerge from the government’s convenient U-turn is that there is one rule for the government as the landlord of state houses but there is another for private landlords.

The government no longer has to follow the original Meth safety guidelines (put there to protect tenants from harm) but private landlords still do.

Police spokesperson’s response to Whaleoil’s request for comment

Counties Manukau police host non-diverse ‘diversity’ ramadan dinner Photo: indiannewslink.co.nz

Yesterday I sent the below e-mail to the New Zealand police.

Good afternoon

today we revealed that a disgraced Imam Mohammad Anwar Sahib was included in the guest list of the recent Ramadan dinner at the Counties Manukau police station.

As stated in our article he lost his position as secretary of FIANZ when we revealed that he had stated on video that Jews are the enemy and that women shouldn’t leave the house without their husband’s permission. These are comments that he has not apologised for.

Tomorrow we will be revealing another controversial thing that he has said on video which is likely to upset the New Zealand Shia Muslim community.

Do the police think that it was a mistake to include Sahib on their guest list and were they aware of his history when they invited him?

Do the police have any other comment to make on the situation?

Yet another controversial claim from Imam Mohammad Anwar Sahib

The most recent video from disgraced Imam Mohammad Anwar Sahib reveals what he believes about Shia Muslims in Syria. He preaches that they believe that they have to kill other Muslims to go to Jannah (heaven). He also doesn’t believe that they are ‘true’ Muslims because of this belief.

From 2:38 in the Facebook video he says Quote:

“….We know the ruler, Assad, and how he’s one of the Shia from the [?]. Their belief is that they have to kill all the Muslims to go to Jannah. They can’t be a Shia without this belief. And that’s what they are trying to do, as you know, in the name of Islam. They call themselves Muslim. How can you be a Muslim when your belief is to kill all the Muslims to go to Jannah?…” End of quote.

I can only wonder what the Shia Muslim leaders invited to the Counties Manukau Police non-diverse ‘diversity dinner’ along with Sahib would think about his statement.
