  1. I'm physically disgusted and sickened by base rumour-mongering. I consider it among the lowest forms of human behavior. I hold such people in contempt.
  2. Wheels, there is no refugee queue. That is precisely the nasty meme that the RW is spreading. Please stop spreading it. If a person seeking refugee status arrives on our shores they are entitled to have their claims heard no matter how they arrived. There is no queue whatsoever that we can say to them 'go back to where you came from and wait your turn in the queue'. BTW, last time I looked at the figures, most illegal migrants to NZ and Australia were from the UK and USA.
  3. To add to Tamure's excellent post it's worth recalling that the notion that there is an orderly system which refugees MUST follow when applying is another part of the nasty rightwing meme factory. Wheels promoted the notion in his post and I hope it was just an error in understanding on his behalf and not a part of his belief system. These are important matters and it's essential that we don't make such fundamental errors in discussing them and in treating people humanely and treating them in accordance with our legal obligations. NZ is a tiny island stuck at the far end of the world; if we ar
  4. Shame that some people still don't want to respect the law. This thread has come in a nice circle. People who think Smith should break the law seem to the same people who don't understand that NZ has signed up, and good on us, to the 1951 UN Convention on Refugees.
  5. "NDB speaks of low- and high-power versions of the cell in development, but until we see some output figures the claims are still hazy, and until we see some proof, they're just claims," said Loz Blain, a tech writer at New Atlas. Steven Novella of the publication NEUROLOGICA blog questions how the batteries will reach sufficient output to be as effective as NDB's developers claim. "This all sounds great," Novella says, "but there is a critical factor left out… What is the power density of these devices?" Specs from similar projects utilizing radioactive fuel, Novella suggests, show "the
  6. Link? But before you do please run it by your own BS filter using these guidelines: https://www.ifla.org/publications/node/11174
  7. Bureaucrats don't make laws. They interpret them and are subject to the courts. At least learn to vent your spleen appropriately.
  8. Such language also breaks the rules of this forum for respectful discussion.
  9. I've reported this post. Adopting the language of the extreme right to describe people who support the rule of law sets a dangerous precedent for this forum.
  10. I watched this guy in an OCTender rowing. Maybe his oars were too short, but the sitting position seemed high and the whole thing looked much more awkward than my nice little ParkerCraft.
  11. Pictures of nesting dinghies being put together in dead calm water are sweet. But what is the experience of the group on putting them together in a chop?
  12. Spindrift looks lovely, but only one rowing position.

  14. Avoid WalkerBay like the plague. They sail like a dog.
  15. WOW. Muzza that was an excellent post and I thank you for it. I learned a lot. I think it should go down as one of the best ever on this crew website. Just to clear up one point. It was the purple prose of the journo I was commenting on.
