    Turkey is leading the charge against ISRAEL and insulted their departing diplomat at the airport. One way to get back at turkey,and the sultan erdogan the butcher of the Kurds is to join the 30 countries that recognize the Armenian Genocide when the turks killed 1500000 people.

      This must be fake news, Lurchy. Everyone knows the Jews are butchers and hate the Palestinians. Hell, they are always bombing Gaza just for fun. And they’re shooting protesters at the border for no good reason. These Jews should let the protesters through so everyone can sit around a table have peace talks.

          It’s possible that this is heavy-handed ‘humour’. If it is, it’s a failure.

          I suspect Corky was using heavy sarcasm that you missed, Kitty.

            Heavy being the operative word. It was the proverbial lead balloon and in very poor taste (what a surprise)

        I agree. My money’s on the Jew boys. After they’ve cleaned up the Middle East they may like to give the gormless wonders who govern Europe a few lessons on how to protect their borders, and what type of people shouldn’t be admitted into their countries.

            If only. I certainly wouldn’t be calling our SIS. By the time they’d finished their haka and received a powhiri, my family and I would be dead.

    I see that a region in Estonia (Kanepi) has adopted a new flag with a Cannabis leaf on it. It says that this region, historically grew & processed the Cannabis/Hemp plant for over 150 years 😀 😀

    Geez, what a mess. This report from 2003. One wonders what the government was doing in the interim.

    1ewes reporting that Penny Bright has done a deal with Auckland Council under which her house will no longer be sold to pay her outstanding rates. The details are confidential. It is understood the deal involves a postponement of payment.

    Open the books, Penny!

      New Shub had the story, too. The council are laying themselves open to other people who don’t want to pay rates although they are happy to use what other people’s rates pay for.

      My guess is a covenant has been placed on her home by the council. Given she’ll probably die within two years, maybe less,her estate will be sold with the council deducting their rates and costs. The remainder of her estate will go to a benefactor appointed by Penny.

    Another school shooter in the US, who failed thanks to a brave policeman, The next one may succeed in doing what they went there to do, and Trump will send thoughts and prayers again to the survivors and to the families of the victims.

    I missed this article earlier but it is shows the folly of Labour’s axing of charter schools:

    The word out there says the petty POTUS#45 pulled out of the Iran deal due to the fact it was Obama’s deal and you cannot have a African American getting one over a trump, his racist daddy taught him that.No wonder trumps turning orange it must be all the nasty bile and jealousy seaping out,sad for Iran and sadder for the USA and their standing in the world
