Middle class, my arse.

"Schoolteacher Jennifer Gregg struggles to support her family on a salary of $90,000, paying over-the-odds Auckland rents while her husband Patrick stays home to look after their seriously ill daughter. Their household income is above the New Zealand average but the couple's outgoings leave them with no savings for a deposit to buy their own home…"

Try talking to families on the $60k mark. They would be more typical of the 'middle class'. That's what a skilled tradesman is getting in wages.

Also, a pet peeve of mine is the continually going on about the Middle Class, when they NEVER use the terms Upper or Lower classes. Can't have a middle without these!

How the hell did this ever get to court?

"A police woman has been found guilty of racially abusing a taxi driver during a late-night fare dispute in Queenstown.
Constable Jeanette May McNee, 44, known as Jenny, appeared for the second day of a judge-alone trial in Queenstown District Court today…"
PC gone mad!
She told him to feck off back to curry-land. (or suchlike) BIG DEAL.
In a grown up world, he would have replied in the manner of- 'well get out of the cab & walk and don't expect anyone else to pick you up'
But it's not a grown up world when this storm in a very small teacup winds up in court and the judge doesn't throw it out immediately.
Pathetic...

The REAL reason

The local 'News' has been flooded with pseudo stories about Whaleoil and Cameron Slater. ALL in the negative.

What is that REALLY about?

Simple. They are pissed and trying for payback, as someone outside their card-carrying ranks has been used as the government's catspaw.

All the juicy tidbits they would normally have dropped in their laps have gone elsewhere.

To somebody NOT in their union.

THAT is the reason this story stays on the front page. The peter-puffers of the MSM are royally pissed about not getting the good stuff first.

And WE pay for this shit!

"Maraea Manu Gage, 24, failed to appear for sentencing in Whangarei District Court for the second time yesterday, forcing Judge Duncan Harvey to issue another warrant - after showing his displeasure at the state of affairs.
Police picked up Gage's four children, including an 8-month-old and a 6-year-old, from their Raumanga home after going there on an unrelated matter on May 10. The 6-year-old cradled her younger sister, watching a computer on which music was being played, and there was no food or heating in the dark, dirty house, lit only by the computer screen's glow…"
FFS- rip her goddamn uterus out with a frickin' boathook!
This evil slag- and there are so many like her in this town and throughout NZ- have absolutely no right to raise anything higher up the food chain than the fungus between her toes. 
The kids she has spawned would be better off in a Victorian era orphanage!

More lollypops

"National has announced an up to $20,000 kick-start for low and middle income couples who build a new home.
Speaking to a 2500 strong crowd at National's campaign launch in Auckland today, leader John Key said the new package would help about 90,000 first home buyers over the next five years…"

Do first time home buyers EVER buy/build  a new house?
In my experience, they buy a house in need of work. Lots of work! 
Because if the haven't just won lotto- that is all they can afford.

Or are we talking about one of these. (not that I would mind one)

And yet they are kept defenseless

"A 33-year-old woman kidnapped at knifepoint in Whangarei has emerged from her ordeal shaken but unhurt.
She was parked in the Laurie Hall car park in the central city about 8.30am when a man threatened her with a knife, police said.
He forced her to drive to Mair Park, then to the ASB bank on Kensington Avenue, and the car park on Quay Street in the town basin…"
This is the later of a spate hijackings- the previous were beaten off. Yet, do the powers that be have anything to say about realistic self- defense?
Of course not.
Nice compliant sheep have no need to carry pistols, Mace or tasters. No indeed! somebody might get hurt!

I kind of thought that was the idea…
