University of Otago Students Association Elections 2017

The OUSA President and the ruling Committee should and well could have announced the date of the student body elections by now.

This act has afforded the incumbents with a huge advantage and our supposed Critic is simply sitting on the sidelines applauding this untenable abuse of the democratic process by a small number of purported representatives

Perhaps the Critic team should extract the reasons from OUSA for this interference in the democratic process. I see “UC” has announced its elections already

University of Otago by comparison

I see a University of Waikato student taking the government to court over Seal Level Rise
What are my fellow Otago University students doing ?
Please see a link to my sea level rise efforts
Also I have had an advert up in three places in the University of Otago Faculty of Law looking to employ a legal assistant or e.a but seems no one wants to work as I have not been swamped with applications. If you work you get experience. Flash

Jobs for Dunedin, Otago???

The need to retain jobs in our region is not disputed. Recently I went and visited the Wests Soft Drinks and Cordial factory in “South D” and after speaking to the owner sent him an email with a view to him retailing his products here on campus at the University of Otago I do not like Coke anyways and prefer Sarsaparilla Some products are already used in the accommodation Halls Alas no response although as a minimum the OUSA would support such a move even if it was to put drink dispensers in their various buildings. Do we want to work or not? We simply must support our local produce. At least I tried, are you?

“Settled Caucus”, Andrew Little LLB/ N Z Labour Party’s Ruling Council

Forgive me if I am mistaken but did Andrew Little LLB not tell the N Z public, voters and Party Members alike that he had a “settled Caucus” Seems what he said then is  not what has transpired with first Phil Goff,  David Shearer, David Cunliffe and with no public statements from the Party’s ruling Council telling the public, voters and party members alike that this is the final resignation.
We are in opposition and have been for almost a decade now We need new ideas and those coming from the Sector Councils must be listened to from now on and not ignored as has been the practice in the past
As can be seen from below Jacinda Ardern has no comment to make on the “Rules of Natural Justice”

Ohope Beach, Bay of Plenty and another year with little change

To my fellow Ohope Beach residents, Ohope Chartered Club Inc. members  and visitors

1 Myself , the NZ Police department in Whakatane and surely my fellow Ohope Chartered Club Incorporated members, including my fellow “Foundation Member”s all await the outcome of the committees unnecessarily and unjustly delayed deliberations after yet another incident of absolutely appalling, witnessed by four, threatening behaviour. Alcohol is purely and simply a drug being peddled from the currently licensed premises and causes lots of problems in our community including domestic violence and hardship amongst children in Ohope Beach

It is high time the “Foundation” members stepped up to the acting club official of an unclear status and member Trevor Hart, the other current committee members and said surely you are doing all you can to help the N Z Police with their enquiries. Apathy is not the answer.

The truth will out

 

2 It is also high time the Ohope Beach Lions Club International Incorporated re-provided the N Z  Police with copies of their numerous statements relating to their blood letting behaviour on the Maraetotara Reserve. It is not to hard to press print or make a photocopy. You are or were a service group. Now it is known the N Z Police have “inadvertently” lost (or cant/don’t want to  find) your many statements not once but twice then you also must want to be seen to be helping the N Z Police with their enquiries.

3 It is also not appropriate that our National Party Cabinet Minister Mrs Anne Tolley utilises the Maraetotatara Reserve for access for residential dwelling construction works involving tradies vehicles and material deliveries. Still more reason not to trust our Members of Parliament.

M P Anne should lead by example not exhibition.

Anne you have been twice challenged to debate with me in the Ohope Hall and at best you can be described as cowering away

4 Currently an application is with a legally funded “Foundation” so we can see for all times if our Mayor Anthony Bonne can be forced to plead to criminal charges  relating to his election success. The legal opinion from the Crown law office is nigh due also. He should just do the right thing but has been asked by me to resign and wont.

Those whom continually vote for Mayor Bonne should have a good long look at yourselves in the mirror

 

5 I contested the last Parliamentary Election for Labour in the Selwyn Electorate and compared to the two no win opportunities in the 1990’s it was “filthy” and once my “status” has been resolved within the New Zealand Labour Party’s Constitutional arrangements involving my fellow party members Geoffrey Palmer, Paul Tolich as well as two other “LLB’s” so all members are treated the same and Caucus members including the M P for Hutt South Trevor Mallard (and many others)  are not treated differently, perchance another attempt is on the cards? I told Andrew Little when we meet at the University of Canterbury to clean out his “settled” Caucus or I would do it for him. As can be seen they are jumping before being pushed.

The world is changing both environmentally and politically

Time to make up your mind Do you want to be a winner like Donald or a loser like Hillary?

Tipping in N Z and Gerry Seinfield’s forthcoming visit

Evening I Caught most of an interview with Gerry Seinfeld on the “Teeve” and what I would ask the lady interviewer to do is to go and visit the hard working people of the tourism industry in the Ford Block in Rotorua and after listening to them she may have a change of mindset and advocate for tipping and not do anything less like now Then go and put those advocating for not tipping, including those who have been formally doing so, in the same venue as these same low paid workers and watch the result. Why are we shackled in this country with such a continuing low standard of “Lazy” media

Cromwell – Central Otago – Private Hospital?

Private Hospital for Cromwell? 10 November 2016
Might I suggest the idea of a private hospital in Cromwell now well established as the pivot point for Central Otago from whence the tentacle like road network arteries spread out and hence can justifiably be deemed the undisputed “Capital of Central Otago”
Perhaps with the formation of a charity which is a simple task, the candidates in the Central Lakes Trust elections can give their election pledges as to whether they would vote justifiable sums of money in the direction of this noble and health orientated cause.
Imagine if you will the various specialists visiting, examining and then operating locally. Remembering always “the customer is always right.”
Local land, local ownership, local tradies and local people utilising the service
Seems like a win win win win situation to me so what do each and every one of the candidates namely Allison, Michael John Richards; Butcher, Duncan Athol; Carruth, Stephen Grant; Claridge, Lynley; Duggan, Elizabeth Ada; Hall, Judith Frances; Hill, James Richard; Kemp, Herbert Charles; Mead, Peter John; Milne, Paul Stanley; Nisbet, Gordon Arthur; Spary, Robert Donald; Symons, Susan Elizabeth think please?

Mayor Cadogan Toilets et al

Congratulations upon your election Mayor Cadogan but please get Council under your control and stick to your knitting For example how long does it take to organise a plumber to repair the public toilets off Barry Avenue One day, two days, three days, a week,? In the normal course of events the Council would have a contracted plumber and drain layer who would have to perform.
Our new Mayor is both a politician and a lawyer As I said to Andrew recently people don’t trust lawyers and politicians and this one just elected has got off to a “shithouse” and “auspicious” start.

This above displayed nonchalance hold me up and makes me late at work

As to Cromwell constantly being administered by Alexandra when we are truly the capital of Central Otago begs an explanation from the residents and voters Some will have two hats per se

We also need “Fresh Choice” in the supermarket realm Surely the Mayor should be able and willing to come out swinging on this score Which it needs to be pointed out is “New World” One Customers Nil
The Politician/Lawyers comments awaited with baited breath It is necessary to add that at well over the age of being able to purchase the drug alcohol I did offer “Legal Tender” recently, my prints were on the vessel and came away without my money and my thirst remains unquenched.  C’est la vie
