    A separate *headline item* followed, featuring refugees on Manus Island, who are “pleading for help to the Prime Minister of New Zealand”. The item was long & quite detailed. If the clips become available, I’ll post them here.

      Jacinda shown in this clip saying she has offered to take 150 refugees.

      (They mis-pronounce her name as Jacinta, but that’s her parents’ fault, imo, & may even be the reason she doesn’t even seem to know the difference between a D & a T – when you hear her speak about her “pryorrideez” etc. John Key’s diction was terrible too. God, foreign people must think we’re all fkn bogans!)

        I don’t think Jacinda’s got a flamin clue what she’s potentially letting us in for. She should be callling for muslim countries to take any Muslim refugees on Manus Is, not bringin them here!

        Which reminds me – have we still got any of our troops stuck in Afghanistan & Iraq, after the yanks blundered about interfering as usual & turned them into the sad, mad, bad, sectarian-fundmentalist-ridden-bombing-&-killing shit heaps they are now?

          the National Govt made the offer of 150,she has merely confirmed it.

      News updates reveal that Saad Hariri has resigned while on a visit to Saudi Arabia. He widely regarded in the mid East & Lebanon as a Saudi Arabian stooge & suspicion is arising that Saudi Arabia is stirring up trouble.

      Gets out of his mind & out of his tree quite frequently. That’s for sure.
