Landcorp wants more taxes "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Landcorp should be sold. Their political posturing should be stopped.

State farmer Landcorp wants more taxes:

Conflict has emerged over Government-owned companies being able to influence Government-led inquiries. 

State-owned Landcorp New Zealand, which owns and operates a large number of farms, is facing criticism for welcoming environmental taxes on the sector.

Andrew Hoggard of Federated Farmers says he feels Landcorp are trying to push themselves out to be a bit holier than thou and are throwing other farmers under the bus quite frankly. 

Pmu is Landcorps brand name and it has made a submission to the Governments Tax Working Group saying its not opposed in principle to a well-designed capital gains tax, a levy on fertiliser products containing nitrogen and a price on water usage.

Its all very well for the state farmer to advocate for more taxes when it doesnt have to operate as other businesses do, needing to make a profit to survive.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats -S05 E27 Silent Running "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

A number of episodes appear wrongly identified from here, but this should be S05 E27, what makes things worse cannot seem to find a title in the screen credits. Sorry if there is repetition.

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Classic TV Comedy: Butterflies S03 E02 Pregnancy with Wendy Craig, Geoffrey Palmer,Bruce Montague, Nicholas Lyndhurst "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Butterflies is a British sitcom series written by Carla Lane that was broadcast on BBC2 from 1978 to 1983.

The situation is the day-to-day life of the Parkinson family in a bittersweet style. There are both traditional comedy sources (Rias cooking, family squabbles) and more unusual sources such as Rias unconsummated relationship with the outwardly-successful Leonard. Ria is still in love with her husband, Ben, and has raised two potentially fine sons, yet finds herself dissatisfied and in need of something more. Throughout the series Ria searches for that something more and finds some solace in her unconventional friendship with Leonard. In a 2002 interview, Carla Lane explained, I wanted to write a comedy about a woman contemplating adultery.

About this lecture

National Parks were designated to protect some of the worlds most loved landscapes from being eaten away by industrial and housing development. But Britains National Parks are exploited by intensive agriculture and sucked dry of their water for neighbouring cities. They sustain non-native invasive species and unlike National Parks elsewhere in the world, they are not natural parks. A movement is emerging with the aim of developing Greater London as the worlds first National Park City. But is there any significant environmental advantage to this and would London benefit from becoming one?

ON PIKE RIVER "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The Pike River re-entry operation (it's not a recovery operation ... we need to be honest about that) is a fiasco backed by an open-ended government cheque book designed to appease those who have lost touch with reality while ignoring the wishes of other families who consider the mine a grave-site best left undisturbed.

For the record I am also uncomfortable with the repatriation of the remains of service personnel buried overseas post the signing of the Korean War armistice.   They too should have been allowed to rest-in-peace where they were interred.

And now the revelation that the re-entry operation will go no further than the point where the tunnel collapsed some 2 km from the mine entrance and short of the mine proper where the 29 men were likely working at the time of the explosion with the further caveat that they might go only as far as the second chamber 170m from the entrance.

So, $36m and climbing from a entry operation likely to achieve what?     A form of mea culpa for Mr Little who, in his previous life as a Union official signed off on the mine operation as fit for purpose, or making good on  a ego trip promise by WRP.     Whatever, this is likely to end in tears with nowt to show for it ... save the desecration of a grave-site.     Those that died deserve better than this increasingly macabre political theatre.

Suez A Very British Crisis (2006): #3/3 War "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

About the Series

The Suez crisis in the 1950s signalled the end of Britains history as a power that could act alone on the world stage.

A new BBC Two series tells the story of Suez using dramatic reconstructions and interviews with participants and witnesses to the crisis.

Suez was British Prime Minister Anthony Edens downfall. But it made a hero of Egyptian President Gamal Abdul Nasser. In the first of a major three-part series marking the 50th anniversary of the Suez crisis, Betrayal traces the path that led to war. It is a story of occupation, resistance, war and politics which marked the end of British imperial dominance and saw the rise of Arab nationalism. It is also a familiar tale of regime change and intervention, when western leaders attempted to reshape the Middle East not for the first time.

The programme includes interviews with participants and witnesses to the crisis: including Anthony Edens widow, the Countess of Avon, Omar Sharif, David Attenborough and Khaled Mohieddin, one of the surviving free officers who served alongside Nasser.

https://youtu.be/9dlAvhcmeec

This Episode: War

The story of how Prime Minister Anthony Eden secretly plotted with France and Israel behind Americas back to seize the Suez Canal and remove Egyptian President Nasser.
When Nasser seized control of the Suez Canal, Anthony Eden was appalled.
He regarded Nasser as a dictator whose claim to represent all Arabs was a direct threat to British interests in the Middle East.
He was determined to make Nasser reverse his decision by force if necessary.
Programme two explains how Britain plotted with France and Israel to gain back control of the canal.
The plan was for Israel to invade Egypt, its neighbour, allowing Britain and France to issue an ultimatum to each side to stop fighting or they would intervene to save the canal.
The programme hears from members of the secret conference that hatched the plan including Douglas Hurd then private secretary to the British ambassador to the UN who describes the nightmare of having to sell Edens cover story for the plot.
And it reveals how an MP discovered what Eden was really up to and attempted to expose him in the House of Commons....

RNZ: Pink and White Terraces brought to life "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Many years ago went through the site. It was fascinating.

From RNZ Sunday

https://podcast.radionz.co.nz/sun/sun-20181202-0745-pink_and_white_terraces_brought_to_life-128.mp3

David Blackmore, general manager of Waimangu Valley, talks about a new app that will bring the famed Pink and White Terraces to life. The terraces disappeared in the Mount Tarawera eruption of June 1886. Now theres another way of seeing them through the wonders of augmented reality.

From Wikipedia 

One of the first Europeans to visit Rotomahana was Ernst Dieffenbach. He briefly visited the lake and terraces while on a survey for the New Zealand Company in early June 1841. The description of his visit in his book Travels in New Zealand[8]inspired an interest in the Pink and White Terraces by the outside world.

The terraces became New Zealands most famous tourist attraction, sometimes referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. New Zealand was still relatively inaccessible to Europeans and passage took several months by ship. The journey from Auckland was typically by steamer to Tauranga, the bridle track to Ohinemutu on Lake Rotorua, by coach to Te Wairoa (the home of the missionary the Reverend Seymour Mills Spencer),[9] by canoe across Lake Tarawera, and then on foot or by canoe up and/or down the Kaiwaka Channel; over the hill to the swampy shores of Lake Rotomahana and the terraces.

Those that made the journey to the terraces were most frequently well-to-do, young male overseas tourists or officers from the British forces in New Zealand. The list of notable tourists included Sir George Grey in 1849, Alfred Duke of Edinburgh in 1869, and Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope in 1874.

The appearance of the terraces was recorded for posterity by a number of photographers, but as it was before colour photography was invented, their images lack the enti...

Fightbacks Pre-History in the New Zealand Left "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Image result for crossbreed

by DAPHNE LAWLESS

Since Fightbacks analysis and articles have been getting more attention from international comrades, we regularly get questions asking what tradition or organisational pedigree we belong to are we Trotskyists, Marxist-Leninists, left-communists, or what? This very brief historical sketch aims to show how messy and complicated our background is. We feel, though, that this is a source of pride rather than embarrassment in intellectual tendencies as with animals, hybridity often leads to vigour, while a pure pedigree is another word for inbreeding!

Fightback traces most of its ancestry back to the original Communist Party of New Zealand, founded in 1921. During the splits between the various Communist-led states of the 1950s-1970s, the CPNZ distinguished itself by being the only CP in an advanced capitalist country to side with China against the Soviet Union; and was even more unique in siding with Enver Hoxhas Albania after its split with China in the late 1970s.

The paradox of taking such a hard-line Stalinist/anti-revisionist line was that the CPNZs brand of Hoxhaism was forthright in condemning both the USSR and China as imperialist countries, not dissimilar in their global role to the US-led bloc. After Hoxhaist Albania surrendered to liberal democracy in 1991, after a period of confusion, the CPNZ produced an analysis (not dissimilar to that of another ex-Hoxhaist party in the US, the Communist Voice Organization) that all the so-called Communist countries had in fact been state-capitalist bureaucratic dictatorships since the time of Stalin.

This formerly super-Stalinist party had therefore came to the same conclusion as several tendencies coming out of the Trotskyist tradition. In a huge historical irony, after decades of strident anti-Trotskyism, in 1995 the former CPNZ, now known as the Socialist Workers Organisation, formally adopted the analysis of one of these state-capitalist tendencies with roots in Trotskys analysis the International Socialist tendency, led by the British Socialist Workers Party. However, the SWO was always something of a black sheep within that tendency, in that it steered a very independent course from the London mothership, and at various times included members openly identifying with different Marxist trends, including from an orthodox Fourth Internationalist background.

Meanwhile, in 1990 CPNZ veteran Ray Nunes who...

When Dr. Edwin Lorrimer, a forensic scientist working at a private laboratory is found killed, Detective Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh is sent to investigate. Dalgliesh had been in the area a few months previously investigating the murder of a young woman found in an abandoned car. There are several suspects: Lorrimers subordinate, Clifford Bradley, who despises him; the new head of the laboratory, Maxim Howarth, who is jealous of his sisters relationship with him; a colleague, Paul Middlemass, who had a fight with Lorrimer. There is also a gruff and likely unethical policeman who was on the grounds of the laboratory at the time of the killing and a local pathologist who is raising his two young children after his wife leaves him for another man. When one of the suspects is also murdered, Dalgliesh learns a key piece of information.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats -S05 E26 Final Chapter "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

A number of episodes appear wrongly identified from here, but this should be S05 E26, what makes things worse cannot seem to find a title in the screen credits. Sorry if there is repetition.

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Butterflies is a British sitcom series written by Carla Lane that was broadcast on BBC2 from 1978 to 1983.

The situation is the day-to-day life of the Parkinson family in a bittersweet style. There are both traditional comedy sources (Rias cooking, family squabbles) and more unusual sources such as Rias unconsummated relationship with the outwardly-successful Leonard. Ria is still in love with her husband, Ben, and has raised two potentially fine sons, yet finds herself dissatisfied and in need of something more. Throughout the series Ria searches for that something more and finds some solace in her unconventional friendship with Leonard. In a 2002 interview, Carla Lane explained, I wanted to write a comedy about a woman contemplating adultery.
