        Like I said, Bloggs, president Trumpy is a one in a million president. You need to get used to that.

        So no Government money went into security, support or facilities for the funeral, Joe?

    Al Jazeera tv continues to report on events related to the aftermath of Tarrant’s massacre but it has no longer been the lead item in their news and the only report seen this morning is a short item about the ban on semi-automatic and assault rilfes, featuring a couple of random people supporting it.

    Last night they showed a short clip of one of the funerals. Prominent in the clip was the hearse being accompanied by a motorcycle escort of patched gang members, some wearing black stahlhelms.

    I am pleased to see they are not repeating that this morning .

      The world’s biggest Mongrel Mob organisation, the Mongrel Mob Kingdom, has moved to sever its association with Nazi Germany.

      In the wake of Friday’s mosque massacre in Christchurch, The organisation’s president, Paito Fatu, confirmed to Te Ao that it no longer uses the term “sieg heil”. It has been the rallying cry of the gang for 50 years but Fatu says it’s time for another way.

      Fatu says the kingdom has a new rallying cry: “I like our brothers and sisters to acknowledge each other by saying ‘Mongrel Mob’.”

      The Mongrel Mob Kingdom is the fastest growing chapter in New Zealand, with more than 400 members locally and 200 from around the world, including Canada, Russia, France and the Solomon Islands.

      Fatu says the stance is part of a transition to a new cause, away from violent crime, domestic violence and drug abuse, and focusing on empowering whānau, women and children.

        Does that mean instead of reading about prospects earning their stripes by attacking people and doing the dirty work in other crimes, we’ll hear about them seeking full status by helping out at Hospice shops, cleaning rubbish off the beaches and alongside roads and giving a hand maintaining local sports parks and walking tracks?🙃

          Empower to replace radicalism of the three ratbags who beat my son nearly to death and left him years of traumatic brain injury that continues.
          All for his “mean as phone”.
          Nah Fatu you have got to come up with more than words.
          How about working to improve your victims lives.

        G, it matters not what or who the mongrel mob choose to align themselves with. They are a criminal gang end of. A candid interview with any detective inspector would dispel the notion they are in any way reformed. They see in radical islam a potentially far more powerful ally

        “NZ does not need an Islamic Black Power or Islamic Mongrel Mob gangs – these men will never change their ways, drug-dealing and death are part of their lives – even their own people live in fear of them.”

    This is a pretty damning indictment of FBI evidential interviewing practice:
