I suspect that sort of provision would apply under 'normal' circumstances such
as the orderly ending of an agreed arrangement. From what you've described,
you have what might be called a...
The mother-in-law arrives home from the shops to find her son-in-law
Paddy in a steaming rage and hurriedly packing his suitcase.
"What's happened Paddy?" she asks anxiously.
Does anyone recall the details of
the ending of the INCIS debacle?
Wasn't the gummint going to
sue the socks off IBM, at first?
The cuzzie cultural
To whom? Talentless Too?
The muck up ministry?
And, as has been observed before, an inexcusable and gross breach of fundamental IT precepts:
never ever turn off the old system until the new one is fully bedded in and working as expected.
Thousands More City Sites Need Maori Tick
New word for the day:
scasm (noun) an intense and often uncontrollable pain felt by Auckland
residents upon realisation of the need for a cultural...
Candidly, I don't think they have the time, patience and expertise, either.
Especially when these things run to hundreds, if not thousands of pages.
The law of unintended consequences is a very...
I have no idea if any inspection took place, of the re-constructed edifice, but a glass house is more or
less modular and it certainly was over the 10 square metres you mention. Which makes me...
Deny? Or neither confirm nor deny?
Politics and obfuscation are Siamese twins.
The only thing anyone should be surprised

Shonkey 'Tricky' With Donation Dinner Details.
Hells bells - if you think that's bad . . .
Locally, a guy bought a greenhouse from a next door neighbour.
Being a law-abiding sort of fellow, he went to the council people
to tell them he...
Yes and no. It shouldn't be political; it should be straight contractual.
But politics does get in the way and it's easy to yield to a range of
pressures when the costs are coming out of someone...
Minor. Just a cosmetic change, isn't it? Something to make some media
capital over, perhaps? Like: we are no longer going to sell eggs in half
dozen packs - folks will have to buy them...
Voters would never hold New Zealand Politicians to ethical
standards higher than their own, now, would they?
Good Titanic deck chairs rearrangement stuff.
Whatever happened to the notion of repealing
the 'general competence' provisions which allow
Councils to get involved in any and everything?
It's not that simple, even if it would be nice if it were so. Being 'economical with the
truth' is not confined to politicians. Even the NZ Property Investors' Assn. does it!
I refer to their...
"Property values are going up but their income levels are flatlining, so there's a very poor
link between their ability to pay and what they actually pay in rates," says Lecherous Len.
I don't disagree, but what's your formula to get the correct figure?
Bandied about here, some time back, was: take the official rate,
multiply it by 2 and add 2 to get a realistic inflation rate....
Not mine: but I have responsibility for them. While
I watch rates for a while, I have elected an Internet
access only (on-call) account that's paying just half
of one percent less than any...
I agree with the bad taste look of denying it, versus
saying just what he did for a friend or whatever. But
the idea that everyone must remember every detail
of everything they did in relation to...
He helped by looking at the place while his friend was o'seas?
Jees, what a media beat up - much ado about nothing.
