I've got $10 on Mintos quote coming true - no terrorism charges.
Mr Minto said the police have put an "exit strategy" in place and the terrorism charges will not see the light of day.
As it's Cup Day - Who was playing bookie?
I don't respect Small as an academic - apparently his Dad was good & the old boys net work worked against itself.
He was made a hero/martyr by the SIS & that is really concerning - that he caught them & they though he was of interest in the 1st place.
I'm out on Bain - really the guy talks like he had no family - I've not been where he is but it's odd.
Seriously Ellis couldn't have done what he was convicted of without complicit assistance from his once co-accused & a few other dodgy deals - just listen to some of the acusations - they don't make any sense - outside of a child manipulated into the wee hours to say what was required.
And Kyle mmoney is King in America & you can buy "justice".
None of this is Terrorism & I'm not sure Labour is Centre Left anymore anyway.
National hasn't been able to distinguish itself form Labour for the last 2 elections.
What are Helens actions & where did Helen come from? True Blue Farming
So why the confusion? She doesn't want to admit who she is & seemingly in the process of denial is happy to inflict collatoral damage on the innocent.
It needs to be a specific supermarket with the right coupon book.
And yes I'm being unfair as opposed to unlawful detention photos armed searches and $8mil all to nought.
BOP have geothermal , tourisim, timber, & farming as an economic base but I feel this is off target a bit.
Che - To think soverignty is the same as to secede from NZ is erroneous. I haven't heard anyone call for seceding from NZ. Even if this was the case we still have a colony fully supported by NZ. Not to mention the state isn't paying rent for forests they're contract to already.
The best comparison able to be played out on 9-noon was rather than terrorism was going to a supermarket. Seriously Braod wasn't able to think about senarios related to the crime only going shopping. Was he dumbing it down or is that where Braods at?
My thought being that rather than a ramping up of Police powers from AOS call-outs as with the roaming axe murderer to full tactical anti-terror role is a big leap and that that leap to domestic warfare (which counteri-terror is) shud be handled by the SAS.
It's another step removed from Policing to domestic warfare and so they will need a greater weight of evidence to proceed.
I really don't see how the population of Ruatoki would tell the difference. The cops were in either Black or DPM same as the SAS.
So the Scotts shudn't have their own Parliment then Neil?
"Because the execution seems to have been completely bollocksed."
Stephen it begs the question why the Police are engaged in antiterror actions which I think are the role of the SAS.
"people with guns with anti-government ideas "
Neil isn't this a definition of heartland National?
I've never voted for Bill English but I'ld never call him a terrorist either - hell I like him.
The Solictor General did a good job - even though he muttered something vaguely positive about the police while denying their charges.
