    I knew of the cargo cult one, but had the idea
    that a so-called fuel surcharge was being used
    to add to the real cost of a fare advertised in
    a way that did not make clear that was not the
    full /...

    Didn't so-called fuel surcharges get some
    adverse reaction from the NZ CommComm
    so the practice ceased in NZ?

    Easy. Because they didn't have TV back then. Of course, I don't. Any more
    than you can know they were not recording the truth of their lives.

    Unless one was there, at the time,
    all recorded history is history. And,
    in many cases, (as you observe):
    it was handed-down hearsay.

    Those whispers against historians
    and writers who lived...

    You did not say how a tribe that was not a party

    settlement) under that treaty.

    I notice that my question was avoided, being instead sub-

    someone else could try answering?

    Perhaps you could explain just how they got
    a Treaty settlement when they didn't sign it,
    then? I could never figure that out.

    Who?

    Those who make the decisions (or not).
    Or those who 'wear' the consequences?

    Too true. I've had only one GST audit and the
    only error found was a minor one that was of
    no real moment. More like an observation in
    passing. It was a depreciation book-entry-mis-
    allocation...

    That's like saying you should have a separate home for your home office claim!
    Completely agree on the administrative side of things, much easier. But it'll cost
    you a lot more than is necessary....

    I think they were looking more closely at GST-related property transactions for a while.
    I vaguely recall it was after more than a few erroneous claims were made known.

    Better to have a "work vehicle"

    I have un-consented and/or non-CCC building work covered by insurance.
    Supposedly! But I did use a broker and the terms of acceptance of those
    things were not unreasonable, I thought.
