BE THE NZ GOV'T FOR A MONTH.

Recommended Posts

The latest NZ Gov't announcement by the defence ministers latest spend and interview after SB this morning the NZ yachting and boating community will / should be happy that the planes are being replaced in 2023 and will probably have more updated high tech on board for search and rescue co ord in our area, followed by a fast nearly all weather vessel for sea assistance if they happen to be in the area or there are no suitable commercial vessels near the vicinity There probably could be  a lot of flak from the opposition and anti NZ first, the Gov't. people.  Previously there was 2 planes [ Fish would know ] I think and the new order is for 4. Flak shouldn't becoming from the NZ boating community. 

 

Following after 2030 / 2035 if they are still the Gov't NZ's own satellite surveillance system and hopefully that will be designed, built  by NZ's own tech expertise if not, probably USA. and launched from Mahia Peninsular with our NZ rocket with the satellite as pay load. If so could have vast potential for advanced satellite development industry together with advanced drones here in NZ. and no doubt if that proceeds there will be the protesters re big bother expanding. No details where it will be monitored, Blenheim perhaps. 

 

I say to help pay for the vessels, associated Helicopters etc for the protection to the South Pacific Islands that NZ is offering as a result --- global warming resulting disaster's, failed crop, food chain supplies in the island and to be on duty to play policeman should there be inter island disputes attacks, raids on each other for resources, NZ should have a alliance with all the South Pacific Islands inc America Samoa, the French territories, Australia an alliance / organization Called

 

"RRDO" Rapid response defence organization and they all contribute to a portion of the costs and running expenses in the vicinity of 35% amongst all of them.

 

With the teachers pay dispute, young doctors, aged care, the ambulance orgs, extra funding for farmac cancer drugs, other funding that all sorts are asking for and being declined like the  hard on hearing implants, rheumatoid arthritis implant's, reduce hospital waiting lists, provide more schools with reduced numbers, provide more hospitals and maternity centres - not close them, subsidised or free dental care, more modern state of the art rapid rail nationwide to name a few, Superannuation retirement age to remain at 65, qualifying period extended from ten years to 25 years and tax free like the MP's, police force, judges, Gov't employees, judiciary service, is. re the debate an argument that the retirement age be extended to 70, which it should not, can you imagine the MP's, agreeing to their retirement fund being extended to 70 and additionally with the others mentioned the tax free component  being wiped. IE. taxable. The lost tax amounts to a considerable amount. If theirs were not extended along with the others it would be a huge injustice and totally unfair if the pension Super gold card, age spin that they are suggesting is sold. GST should be raised by 2 1/2% to 17 1/2% introduced at  1 1/2% 1st year 1% second year, which equates to $2.50 cents in every $100, not even a the price of a sausage roll or one litre of petrol at the moment. A fuel tax of 1% on all air travel, domestic and international and a additional departure tax $30 to be included in the price air travel ticket.

 

The retirement commissioner advocated that Gov'ts must make the hard decision re the ageing population, which is yet to be proven. Restricting immigration would also solve the problem because at the moment the immigration numbers are considerably higher than Nz's present child births numbers.

 

Cheers.

i have no problem with the defense spending, which has been put off for many, many years

 

"Previously there was 2 planes [ Fish would know ] I think and the new order is for 4."

 

afaik the 6 (thought it was 7) P3 orions are being replaced by 4 new P8s.......

 

which is at least better than the five 50 year old hercs being replaced by 2nd hand 20 year old hercs

Virtually what I said forgot to use the word P3 orions. Were there 2 0r 7  Orion planes as you are implying.

 

Care to give your vision on how you would take the country as you want to see it for the future and how you would run it and have your say  as to how, you being the Gov't / PM combined finance ministers would pay for it.

With the Gov't having a $2b extra in taxes and other revenues than what was forecasted with extra still to come as wages increase and tourist tax come on stream.

 

With all the critics and winging re the present Gov't policies I thought plenty would make a post. It to seems they do not have a view how to solve or pay for a alternative track  / policy to the policies they criticise

You do not diss the Stardust fella.

 

Everyone knows or will be very quickly told only ones who do that are white supremacists, white supremacists who are also racists, white supremacists who are also sexists, white supremacists who are also ageists and Josef Mengele.

5 + 1 = 6 orions 

 

A sixth aircraft was purchased from the RAAF during the Project Rigel upgrade.

What about describing the issues you do have a problem with and disclose how you would deal with them with your alternatives is what this thread is discussing.

To help get the NZ road toll down I would follow AUSTRALIA's example to enhance road safety with additional law and fines for those using

 

CELL PHONES whilst driving but including eating and drinking whilst driving. FIRST OFFENCE $1200's. 2nd offence $1500 and 12 months licence cancellation with no business hours driving being granted. Australia has passed legislation increasing the fines to $1000

 

On the so called, in bad state off repair, death prone accidents sections, corners, reduced speed limits by 20 kilometres per hour sign posted / and road markings every 25 meters either side of the suspect road sections with the white lines altered to red.

 

This would be a lot better than educational advertising and would get instant success.
