"Opposition politicians were today urging the producers of The Hobbit to start talks with an actors' union to ensure the movie gets made in New Zealand.
The movie's executive producer Sir Peter Jackson has threatened to move the shooting to eastern Europe after NZ Actors Equity said it wanted a collective contract for New Zealand actors appearing in the movie..."
My preferred response is "We have met with the union and now that they have been shot, the movie will go ahead."
- Giving way to everything.
- Not giving way by the new rule

"A British businessman who last year bought the company that makes the two-wheeled Segway personal transporter has died in an accident on one of the vehicles.
Police in West Yorkshire said Monday that 62-year-old James Heselden and a Segway were found in the River Wharfe near Boston Spa, in northern England..."

- Fresh fruit and veg are dirt cheap in NZ - especially the basics like apples and cabbage.
- Vegetables are very easy to grow.
- Many of 'The poor' can't be arsed shopping around, don't eat fruit and veg outside of a pie and probably wouldn't eat them if they were free now.

"The SPCA plans to talk to a rural Manawatu school after receiving complaints about a possum throwing contest.
Last week, the Manawatu Standard ran pictures of the children at Colyton School participating in the contest, in which pupils grabbed possum carcasses by the tail and lobbed them through the air to see how far they could toss them..."
It's a DEAD POSSUM. In NZ this creature has the same status as the common Rat.
And it's ALREADY DEAD.
it's an EX-POSSUM.
You can't be cruel to a DEAD critter.
The SPCA need to stick to going after people beating dogs and kicking kittens. Like it used to before the greenie faction took over...

I was going to write a longer piece on the David Garrett witch-hunt, but as others have done such a good job, I am saved the bother of pointing out the obvious lairbore shortcomings!

These figures are similar to the 2007 results. But the average number of supplies has risen to 9.2 items from 8.9 in 2007."
Don't come around here looking for help.
There has been more than enough warning that something like what hit the Village of the Damned would happen.
My supplies are considerably more than the 9.2 items in the above clip.
Especially those supplies pertaining to keeping moochers and looters out...

"...Jail guards have been threatened they'll be "bashed" or "stabbed" by prisoners over cigarettes, correspondence released to Sunday News under the Official Information Act reveals..."
News flash- threats in a prison are as common as 'good mornings' outside.
The smoking ban is just another excuse to behave badly and if the crims want to riot, they should be dealt with as rioters should- water cannon, tear gas, short rations and an increase in their sentence- plus no chance of parole.
A bit of buckshot would not be amiss, also!
"Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker says he feels "repulsed" by members of a family evicted from a welfare centre.
The people were members of a family group of about 30 at the Addington welfare centre, some of whom were behaving unacceptably.
Checks found they had not told the truth about the damage they had suffered..."
Name and shame the scum!
Not that lowlife who would try this on would have any sense of shame.
"A Christchurch family evicted from an earthquake welfare centre say they more traumatised at being unfairly singled out as bludgers than by the earthquake that sent them fleeing their homes.
The 30-strong Martin family from Shirley, who have links to the Mongrel Mob gang, were called "repulsive" by Mayor Bob Parker after they were trespassed from the Addington Welfare centre..."

"...When Jacki Morris arrived at Ferndale School this morning to inspect the site's serious earthquake damage, what she found was far more distressing than the 15cm gash in the lawn.
The Merivale school for special needs children was burgled on Wednesday night. Windows were jimmied open, sheds and filing cabinets ransacked, and thousands of dollars worth of digital equipment taken..."
Anyone that low needs to be hung high. Preferable left in a iron cage to starve and rot.
I mean, a person (and I use that term very loosely) who is capable of such a callous act is capable of anything and needs removing from the face of the earth.
Like a mad dog, they are too dangerous to let live.

"North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams' late-night text tirades have reached Christchurch, with complaints about the city's nightlife and "Third World" service.
Prime Minister John Key said yesterday that he had deleted "obnoxious and aggressive" text messages sent to him by Williams, some as late as 3.30am.
Key said he had not bothered to keep any of the messages.
Williams has denied the messages were aggressive, and said politicians had to have thick skins.
On July 27, Williams sent a cellphone email to Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker just after midnight after dining with friends in the city. In the email, Williams said he and his party were "most disappointed with Christchurch tonight".,,"
Taking the piss out of the Village of the Damed is the domain of us that have actually had to live there! The mostly excellent Christchurch restaurant scene is the one reason for this carbuncle of a town existing*.
*(apart for their extremely skilled courtesans)
"A Northland couple and some police officers are being investigated after the couple allegedly forced two men they believed tagged their fence to dance in front of a camera.
A video was made after the couple's house was tagged last Thursday in Otaika, south of Whangarei, police said..."
I would prefer to 'make them dance' in a more piratical sort of way.
From a yard-arm, although a tree or lamp-post would suffice in these modern times.
