    The hoose of cannie minds …

    keep an eye on the elected politicians

    This tribunal thing has a lot to commend it…
    Which sets me thinking why not go the next step…
    Politics can be a very anaerobic environment, so as with diving, perhaps a political ‘Lumpen Buddy System’* could be devised, each politician could have a ’civilian companion’ on a rotating basis, to: counter each MP’s specific gravitas; supply the oxygen of reason; and to buoy them back to the surface and sunlight; when needed…

    (and you know, someone to watch the intellectuals...)

    Shame your grandfather wasn’t from Edinburgh, then he could’ve called the concept the Forth Estates… but at least they’ll be on Clyde Time!
    David Shearer would be welcomed with open arms in Glasgow – I note its coat of arms includes two ring-bearing fish (well three actually) as well as St Mungo, a bell that wouldn’t ring and a tree that wouldn’t grow… What a riddle of a town!

    ...wouldn’t even allow U2 overflights of the USSR without the aircraft being unmarked, unarmed and flown by a nominal civilian.

    Yes, I consider Bono a weapon of mass destruction, frankly.

  • Legal Beagle: The Police Investigation…, in reply to Graeme Edgeler,

    The Police can’t require anything like that.

    Require vs demand, maybe?
    It must be the Weekend Herald colluding with Roget and twisting words then...

    ...Deputy Commissioner Rob Pope agreed they would conduct a "thorough analysis and assessment of the Crewe homicide file in an endeavour to answer questions raised by Rochelle Crewe".
    But this month, almost three years on, the senior officer charged with carrying out the review, Detective Superintendent Andy Lovelock, began asking new questions of the Thomas family, including demanding alibis for the night of the murders from Arthur Thomas' sister Margaret Stuckey and her husband Buster.

    Still doesn't look good...

    Does NZ have Double Jeopardy laws?
    Maybe you've already written on this Graeme?

    Here’s Godley, about a year before his overthrow.

    Though, I miss The Square's old underground mens' toilet, wa-a-ay back when Godleyness was next to Cleanliness...

    “I didn’t know the gun was loaded”

    …removed from context,
    to act as a kicker for a serious
    WTF piece of ongoing police work !!
    __"…and where were you on the evenings
    around the 17th of June, 1970?”

    Arthur Allan Thomas has been required by police to provide an alibi for the night Harvey and Jeanette Crewe were murdered. …

    Police refused to directly answer questions this week about the review.

    Acting Assistant Commissioner Glenn Dunbier said speaking to people connected to the case was “a logical and appropriate step in any review of this nature”.

    “We would be remiss if this wasn’t carried out,” he said.

    Classic passive aggressive Concern Troll behaviour…

    There’s no way the Utah DC is being constructed to process something like six orders of magnitude more electronic data than is currently produced by the online world.

    Chokers!
    No sense of ambition, obviously!

    I knew he was ‘scaley’…

    the word deliberately

    He’s probably labouring under the illusion that to ‘de-liberate’ means to take away freedoms and liberties, something he warms to, it seems, taking past actions on balance…

    Bt if those anonymous ‘coupla mistake-making GCSB agents’ weren’t acting deliberately, why, they must have been acting rashly, in an impulsive and ill-considered manner – rogue agents almost – best they are cut from the herd, eh, John?
