Why do lefties need to lie about Three Strikes? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Last  week I caught up with an old friend I will call him Porky.

MALAYSIAN POLITICS "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Anwar Ihrahim, onetime UMNO Deputy Prime Minister and currently President of 'his' Peoples Justice Party and leader of the Pakatan Harapan coalition government, jailed twice (and beaten while in Police custody) on what many considered to be trumped up charges of sodomy and subsequently pardoned, completed his political comeback on the weekend with a comprehensive victory in the Port Dicksen bi-election where he polled over 70% of the votes cast.

Anwar is expected to become Prime Minister when Mahatair (age 93) steps down in two years time.

Anwar was the driving force behind the exposure of corruption in the UMNO which was the dominant force in Malaysian politics from Merdeka  (Independence) in 1957 until it was defeated earlier this year.    The corruption was endemic and has seen many politicians (including the defeated Prime Minister Najib Razak) and other high government officials either dismissed from office or arraigned before the Courts.     The charges against Najib include money laundering, criminal breech of trust and abuse of power.    His wife, Rosmah Mansoor, has also been charged with seventeen counts of money laundering and tax evasion.

Anwar is a 'different' political animal.    Clearly he is a radical nationalist.   Some have suggested he is a closet Islamist ... I see no great evidence of that.    If I were to try and align him with someone from the NZ political scene I guess I would cast him in the mold of Jim Anderton (although Anderton was never Chair of the Development Committee of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund as Anwar was).    Time will tell.    I wish Anwar well.    I have a great love of Malaysia.   The country deserves better than what they had over the last decade or so.

Keeping Up Appearances S02 E10 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

lousy formatting, audio OK and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction.

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S04 E11 Good Times And Adventures "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

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 Comedy: Open All Hours Ronnie Barker and David Jason S04 E03 The Housekeeper Caper "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

From Wikipedia

Open All Hours is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke for the BBC. It ran for 26 episodes in four series, which premiered in 1976, 1981, 1982 and 1985. The programme developed from a television pilot broadcast in Ronnie Barkers comedy anthology series, Seven of One (1973). Open All Hours ranked eighth in the 2004 Britains Best Sitcom poll

The setting is a small grocers shop in Balby, a suburb of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The owner, Arkwright (Ronnie Barker), is a middle-aged miser with a stammer and a knack for selling. His nephew Granville (David Jason) is his put-upon errand boy, who blames his work schedule for his lacklustre social life.

Across the road lives Nurse Gladys Emmanuel (Lynda Baron), occupied by her professional rounds, and her elderly mother. Arkwright longs to marry her, but she resists his persistent pressures. In later episodes, it is explained that the two have actually been engaged for many years but have been unable to go through with a wedding due to the advanced age of Nurse Gladyss mother, for whom she cares at home. Though short-tempered with Arkwright, she is concerned for his and Granvilles welfare.

Two taxes missing "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Numeracy and knowledge are not major attributes in Dysfunction Junction

On Monday Jacinda Ardern told us fuel companies were fleecing us.

Yesterday we learned two taxes were missing from her numbers:

Prime Minister Jacinda Arderns calculation of how much extra tax Kiwis are paying at the petrol pump on Monday did not include the recent excise tax or Aucklands Regional Fuel tax.

National Leader Simon Bridges said the Prime Minister has got this badly wrong, and has made a staggering mistake.

But a spokesman for the Prime Minister said her comments were based on the most accurate information Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) had compiled at that time. . . 

Between October 27, 2017 and September 28 this year, petrol prices have risen 39c, according to MBIE data Ardern said just 6.8c of that increase was due to taxes and levies.

That 6.8c increase is made up of a 1.77c increase in Emissions Trading Scheme (EST) taxes

END OF LIFE CHOICE BILL "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

I was away in Hamilton last week doing Gods work and so I missed the debate in Kerikeri organised by Matt King MP on the Life Choices Bill.    Speaking in favour of the Bill was David Seymour MP (author of the bill) and against was Dr Chris Reid, a highly respected local GP and candidate for President of the Royal New Zealand College of  General Practitioners.    By all accounts it was a very civilized debate.

I have to admit I'm an Agnostic on this Bill.   On one hand few would have been failed to be moved by the story of 104 year old Australian Professor David Goodall who made an informed choice to end his life on his terms in Switzerland which allows assisted dying.  He spent his final day exploring the Basil University Botanical Gardens with three of his grandchildren and enjoying a last meal of fish and chips and cheesecake before listening to Beethoven's Ninth 'Ode to Joy' as the drug was administered.

OTOH I worry about the potential for subtle (and not so subtle) elder abuse no matter the safeguards built into the Bill ... 'Mum, you've had a great life; 'we' can't look after you any more; all your friends are 'gone' and Dads there waiting for you' ... or variations on the theme and always with the family fortune a beckoning.    And it happens now ... over 2,200 cases of elder abuse are reported each year in good ole NZ (although it is estimated that 3/4 cases go unreported) .     79% of cases involve psychological abuse and 54% financial abuse (clearly in many cases it's a combination of both).    76% of abusers are family members.

So, as I said, I'm capable of being convinced one way or the other.   What I do know is that religion won't play any part in my decision.    I would welcome your thoughts on this.

The Unknown War: #18/20 The Battle of Berlin "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The greatest battles of World War II, the most colossal encounters of military force, the most devastating human losses which the modern world has ever seen, occurred on Russian soil during 1941-1945, on a battlefield that is unknown to most Americans. The conflict between Hitlers Germany and Stalins Russia claimed more than 30 million lives. On the early morning of June 22, 1941, the Nazi Wehrmacht had amassed 4.2 million crack troops along a front that stretched for 1,800 miles, and Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union began. The Nazi high command was extremely confident, expecting the total collapse of Stalins Russia within six weeks. In reality, The Unknown War raged on for nearly four years. Before it finished, the Nazis and Soviets fought the single greatest campaign in military history. The Unknown War covers that period of history beginning in June 1941, when Germany launched its surprise attack on Russia, through to the end of the war. The Unknown War was a landmark television series, detailing the drama of the Eastern European front during World War II. Academy Award Winner Burt Lancaster hosts the 20 part series. Film footage from Soviet archives comprises a major portion of the series, supplemented by film from both the United States and British archives. Burt Lancaster spent three weeks in eight cities in Russia, for location filming. The Unknown War was made as a counter to the deliberate distortions in the Anglo-American series The World At War, which chose to give as much coverage to the US in Italy as it did to the Red Army at war from the Arctic to the Black Sea. So blatant was the politically motivated distortion in The World At War that the Soviet authorities ultimately refused to cooperate in its production. Instead they set out to make a documentary series of their own that would tell the real story of the War in the East. The Eastern (Russian) Front of WW2 has been side-lined in the Western media for decades, reduced to just one aspect of the War, if it is even mentioned at all. Certainly there is never any recognition given to the fact that it was the main, decisive arena of WW2, the scene of a titanic struggle that, at the cost of 30 million Soviet lives, saved the world from fascism. Made by the USSRs Central Documentary Film Studios, The Unknown War dealt exhaustively with the war on the Soviet front. Narrated by Burt Lancaster, who also appeared on camera, the series featured interviews with many participants from numerous battles, partisan campaigns and SS massacres. It showed the destruction, the sacrifice and th...

Classic Comedy: Ronnie Corbett in Sorry S07 E03 A Fool And His Money "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Wikipedia

Sorry! is a BBC television sitcom, that aired on BBC1 from 1981 to 1982 and from 1985 to 1988. Starring Ronnie Corbett, created and written by Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent for the BBC, both of whom had previously written for The Two Ronnies, of whom Corbett was one half.

Sorry! is based around Timothy Lumsden who, 41 years old in the first three series (his age increased to 42 and then 48 in subsequent series Corbett was actually 50-57 during the series run), is a librarian who still lives at home with his domineering mother Phyllis and henpecked father Sidney. Although quite shy around women, Timothy longs to find love and leave home, but Phyllis is always against the idea, and constantly manipulates her son into staying at home. One of the running gags of the series is Sidney frequently shouting Language, Timothy! when he feels Timothy has said something inappropriate (though most times nobody would typically find the words even close to offensive). Timothy usually responds Sorry father, but sometimes snaps Shut up, father! to which Sidney always replies Fair enough.

The writers used this to clever effect in one episode when Timothy is boasting about his acadmeic achievements; I got two passes in English, Literature and the other one, at which point Sidney walks past and says Language, Timothy.

In contrast, Timothys friend Frank and sister Muriel urge Timothy to stand up to his mother once and for all. Muriel had successfully left home, and married Kevin, and as a result is viewed with distrust by her mother.

Keeping Up Appearances S02 E08 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

lousy formatting, audio OK and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction.

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

Annoying Hype "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Not that long ago I published an account of the Adolphian daily reading list.

It did not include Fox News.  However, since writing I have taken a quick glance at the headlines on Sky and Fox each day.   I've never been a great fan of Sean Hannity and this week gave cause for my prejudice to be reinforced.

Last week-end there was a headline on Fox to the effect that Hannity would be revealing yet another major story, guaranteed to bring woe an much tooth gnashing to the Democrats and heir friends.

Like a mug, I went back each day to see what it would be and, for the life of me, there was nothing that remotely justified the hype.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S04 E10 Fish Out Of Water "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

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 Comedy: Open All Hours Ronnie Barker and David Jason S04 E02 Horse Trading "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

From Wikipedia

Open All Hours is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke for the BBC. It ran for 26 episodes in four series, which premiered in 1976, 1981, 1982 and 1985. The programme developed from a television pilot broadcast in Ronnie Barkers comedy anthology series, Seven of One (1973). Open All Hours ranked eighth in the 2004 Britains Best Sitcom poll

The setting is a small grocers shop in Balby, a suburb of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The owner, Arkwright (Ronnie Barker), is a middle-aged miser with a stammer and a knack for selling. His nephew Granville (David Jason) is his put-upon errand boy, who blames his work schedule for his lacklustre social life.

Across the road lives Nurse Gladys Emmanuel (Lynda Baron), occupied by her professional rounds, and her elderly mother. Arkwright longs to marry her, but she resists his persistent pressures. In later episodes, it is explained that the two have actually been engaged for many years but have been unable to go through with a wedding due to the advanced age of Nurse Gladyss mother, for whom she cares at home. Though short-tempered with Arkwright, she is concerned for his and Granvilles welfare.

Dole Institute of Politics:Forgotten Transcendence The Battle of Buena Vista, 1847 Dr. Gregory Hospodor "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The Battle of Buena Vista, also called Battle of Angostura, Battle of Buena Vista, lithograph by Currier & Ives, c. 1847. [Credit: Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. (Digital file no. cph 3g02957)](Feb. 2223, 1847), battle fought near Monterrey, Mex., in the Mexican-American War (184648), the war between the United States and Mexico. A U.S. army of about 5,000 men under General Zachary Taylor had invaded northeastern Mexico, taking Monterrey and Saltillo. General Antonio Lpez de Santa Anna meanwhile had gathered a force of about 14,000 troops and was marching north from San Luis Potos to engage the invaders. Although the numbers were impressive, they were badly armed and poorly trained. When reports of the Mexican threat reached Taylor, he moved his forces on February 21 to La Angostura, near the hacienda of Buena Vista, where there is a pass between two high ranges of mountains. Taylors communications line was cut by Mexican cavalry the next day, and the main Mexican attack began on February 23, pressing the Americans exposed left flank facing the eastern side of the pass, which Taylor had failed to fortify. Despite the retreat of some volunteer infantry regiments, the heavy U.S. artillery fire turned back the Mexicans, and, by nightfall, they had suffered casualties of about 1,500 to Taylors 700 (though scholarly estimates of these casualties vary widely). Leaving their campfires burning as a ruse, the Mexican army retreated during the night. Taylor did not pursue Santa Anna. It was not necessary since large numbers of sick, wounded, and dispirited soldiers deserted during the retreat. In April at the Battle of Cerro Gordo, Santa Anna failed to halt the invasion of another U.S. army under General Winfield Scott, who captured Mexico City in September, thus assuring a U.S. victory in the war. Taylors victory enhanced his national reputation and helped him win the U.S. presidency in 1848.

Yesterday Adam posted on the issue of On-Line Voting here are some comments from the thread at the Stuff  article

The overwhelming view is this is not a good idea.

HMach
Hell no! this is a major privacy breach issue.
Voting is suppose to be a secret ballot with no ability to link the voter to the vote cast.
An IT system can link ICP numbers to individual computers and devices right back to the user. The Government will know who you voted for! Completely undermines the secret ballot concept.
The current system is not broken! so why an expensive government process to tender it? Wasteful!
Additionally if not managed properly, the provider may have the IP on the data collected and can sell data to third parties! giving away your details, email address and logins. Id be very cautious of government officials selling this idea
Furry Fella
Another nail in the coffin of democracy. As the census shows there is a not insignificant group that this can never reach. Then the real elephant in the room how to keep it safe honest and without manipulation. As ALL the major IT security groups currently believe this is not possible when considering online for voting in Northern Hemisphere major nations this exercise is grossly early and presumptuous.

Classic Radio Comedy: Im sorry Ill read that again Lady Godiva "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Classic BBC Radio comedy with John Cleese,Tim Brooke-Taylor,Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden

Im Sorry Ill Read That Again was billed as a radio custard pie this show ran for 8 years and starred Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie, John Otto Cleese, Jo Kendall and David Hatch and it was produced by Humphrey Barclay. Music was provided by Dave Lee and his band. The show sprang from the Cambridge University undergraduate revues, with the pilot of the series being a recording of the West End show, Cambridge Circus. The shows title came from a phrase commonly used by BBC newsreaders after a stumble or mistake, and established the series irreverent tone. It was first broadcast on the BBC Home Service in 1964 (subsequent series were broadcast on the BBC Light Programme). ISIRTA, as it later became more well know as is notable for the amount of talent that festered within the group.

Classic Comedy: Ronnie Corbett in Sorry S07 E02 Every Day, In Every Way "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Wikipedia

Sorry! is a BBC television sitcom, that aired on BBC1 from 1981 to 1982 and from 1985 to 1988. Starring Ronnie Corbett, created and written by Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent for the BBC, both of whom had previously written for The Two Ronnies, of whom Corbett was one half.

Sorry! is based around Timothy Lumsden who, 41 years old in the first three series (his age increased to 42 and then 48 in subsequent series Corbett was actually 50-57 during the series run), is a librarian who still lives at home with his domineering mother Phyllis and henpecked father Sidney. Although quite shy around women, Timothy longs to find love and leave home, but Phyllis is always against the idea, and constantly manipulates her son into staying at home. One of the running gags of the series is Sidney frequently shouting Language, Timothy! when he feels Timothy has said something inappropriate (though most times nobody would typically find the words even close to offensive). Timothy usually responds Sorry father, but sometimes snaps Shut up, father! to which Sidney always replies Fair enough.

The writers used this to clever effect in one episode when Timothy is boasting about his acadmeic achievements; I got two passes in English, Literature and the other one, at which point Sidney walks past and says Language, Timothy.

In contrast, Timothys friend Frank and sister Muriel urge Timothy to stand up to his mother once and for all. Muriel had successfully left home, and married Kevin, and as a result is viewed with distrust by her mother.

The Unknown War: #17/20 The Allies "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The greatest battles of World War II, the most colossal encounters of military force, the most devastating human losses which the modern world has ever seen, occurred on Russian soil during 1941-1945, on a battlefield that is unknown to most Americans. The conflict between Hitlers Germany and Stalins Russia claimed more than 30 million lives. On the early morning of June 22, 1941, the Nazi Wehrmacht had amassed 4.2 million crack troops along a front that stretched for 1,800 miles, and Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union began. The Nazi high command was extremely confident, expecting the total collapse of Stalins Russia within six weeks. In reality, The Unknown War raged on for nearly four years. Before it finished, the Nazis and Soviets fought the single greatest campaign in military history. The Unknown War covers that period of history beginning in June 1941, when Germany launched its surprise attack on Russia, through to the end of the war. The Unknown War was a landmark television series, detailing the drama of the Eastern European front during World War II. Academy Award Winner Burt Lancaster hosts the 20 part series. Film footage from Soviet archives comprises a major portion of the series, supplemented by film from both the United States and British archives. Burt Lancaster spent three weeks in eight cities in Russia, for location filming. The Unknown War was made as a counter to the deliberate distortions in the Anglo-American series The World At War, which chose to give as much coverage to the US in Italy as it did to the Red Army at war from the Arctic to the Black Sea. So blatant was the politically motivated distortion in The World At War that the Soviet authorities ultimately refused to cooperate in its production. Instead they set out to make a documentary series of their own that would tell the real story of the War in the East. The Eastern (Russian) Front of WW2 has been side-lined in the Western media for decades, reduced to just one aspect of the War, if it is even mentioned at all. Certainly there is never any recognition given to the fact that it was the main, decisive arena of WW2, the scene of a titanic struggle that, at the cost of 30 million Soviet lives, saved the world from fascism. Made by the USSRs Central Documentary Film Studios, The Unknown War dealt exhaustively with the war on the Soviet front. Narrated by Burt Lancaster, who also appeared on camera, the series featured interviews with many participants from numerous battles, partisan campaigns and SS massacres. It showed the destruction, the sacrifice and th...
