The Passenger Terminal

This is a further update to my comments on the Rugby World Cup. This is the back story. Central Government decided to turn Greater Auckland (made up of seven boroughs/cities) into one big Super City.

Science & Technology

The Election

I was meaning to cover the New Zealand elections but that plan has fallen through. The results are in. National, under John Key, has become the government yet again.

Her reason: Asians outnumbered New Zealanders in all the jobs she’d ever had. This girl comes up for sentencing shortly. The fact that she is fit only for jobs that... Sign in to see full entry.

Occupy Wall St

Anyone with any political knowledge knows the “Occupy Wall St” movement is a complete and utter waste of time if change is what is actually needed. It is a chance for the public to vent their rage. They do their thing, go home, and things continue as usual. A regulate Wall St movement – now that... Sign in to see full entry.

On Thursday the reactions to the Rena began coming in. John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, responding the Leader Of the Opposition, Phil Goff’s, taunt that the government wasn’t working fast enough. What should we have done? Key asked.
