    However, further investigations by Stuff have revealed those numbers are, in fact, bogus. The Justice Ministry not only failed to provide the comparable figures Edgeler requested, it also failed to flag that the figures were not comparable, despite knowing how he intended to use them. It also allowed the resulting incorrect conclusions to go unchallenged for a year.

    I think this points to a bit of a concern about the supplier of the data surely.

  • Speaker: A Singer Must Die - Leonard…,

    1971. Auckland uni year. Girlfriend of time introduced me to Suzanne, Marianne and the Bird. Bought my guitar and Cohen Tabs music book and managed to learn to pick the whole bloody book. I still pick it up.
    Saw both concerts in Wgtn.
    Best lines:
    “Johnny Walker wisdom running high”
    “She’s a hundred but she’said wearing something tight”
    Best songs:
    Suzanne
    Partisan
    Lady Midnight
    Dance me to the end of love
    Democracy. The fact he died the day after Trumps election says it all
    “Sail on, sail on, oh mighty ship of state
    To the shores of need
    Past the reefs of greed
    Through the squalls of hate
    Sail on, sail on, sail on”

    And no doubt they will.

  • Polity: Saudi sheep: Misappropriating…,

    Last couple of paragraphs of the introduction of the AGs report:

    “My final thought relates to transparency. New Zealand has worked hard to have an ethical and transparent public sector. Accusations of corruption and bribery should be of concern to us all. During my time as Auditor-General, I have seen an increase in these accusations.

    None of my inquiries has upheld those accusations. However, complacency is not an option. We should all continue to demand transparency in how our public resources have been used and what was achieved with our money. Transparency is the best foil for corruption.”
