I am not suggesting that Ira has done anything wrong, he has not
Just wondering why he was there and why someone who is a system administrator would need the WINZ computer to do his CV updates
And when he found the problem, while he might have told someone right then he was quite within his rights to do what he did do ( in my opinion)
Just a pity he was outed, love to also know where that came from?
Ok, the same old left wing /right wing bull shit going on here, mostly from the left, given the normal dialogue at PA
Calls for the Minister's head from the usual suspects
Yes it is a disgrace for a Government Dept to leak information, no argument there and just as bad some people claim to have known this for some time but didn't think to alert anybody or if they did were ignored ( I would like some proof on this given all phone calls are recorded
My only question just how likely is it that anyone in employment goes to a WINZ office and then sticks a device into a computer?
Quite frankly it beggers belief!
The only person to come out of this with any credit is Keith and I am more than happy to help finance his defense if he is charged
Of course everybody (at Public Address one presumes)) thought it was just great that Ecan (or as it was known further South Ecan't) was a democracy that allowed the population base of Christchurch to interfere in the lives of people who lived in North Otago a 180 kms away. A different province with different loyalties and different problems
And as proof there is a Court case at the moment which revolves around the regranting of water rights that stretched over 10 years and a ratcheting of fees by huge amounts. Ecan was dysfunctional writ large make no mistake about that!
As for the anti democratic dealing with Chch and its problems lets not forget that everybody over the age of 18 has a right to change the government every three years
Something they already have not done once despite the carping of the Labour MPs
I quite agree that we need the numbers but your point the maybe the voters are wrong and given time they will agree with us sounds awfully like the Labour Party saying that surely the voters will see they made a mistake and come back to the fold
Well, last time people had a chance to vote on Parliments size I believe 81% thought a smaller Parliment was the way to go
I do wish that they had taken objections to there being any threshold on board
The threshold is anti democratic
And despite being a South Islander I do wonder if a debate about the 16 seats for the south would be worthwhile especially as all forward population studies show a steady increase in the North Island (Auckland) growth
The present system will mean that Parliament size will increase faster than the overall population growth which isn't such a bad thing except many people feel the place is to big already except wannbe MPs
That is just to close to the bone Russell, stayed the night!
What it does prove (again) is that no one is all bad and non human just as the alternative is also true
Mr Laws, is his record so clean he can be trusted to throw the first stone?
Excellent news ,especially for you Russell
Not much of a morning TV watcher and I refuse to record stuff on the off chance I will ever get around to watching at some future time but I can see a change in my future too
And that in one is Labour's problem
Having to skip past a hell of a lot...stuff
Hmmm sometimes when I contemplate the whole political donation scene I am inclined to change my mind on allowing politicians to dig into the trough of public money to buy their way back into office
Then I remember who wrote the rules
And then I remember who actually gets the monies, the media and various print shops
Maybe we should give each seeker after public office a small amount of money, very small amount and tell them to get out there and meet their potential voters
