    We spent a few hours in Delft and had a wee joyride in the canals - mostly desperately in need of some cleaning The cars parked by the canals with the driver's door opening directly on to a drop into the canal would not do for the NZ Safety Gestapo - that's for sure.

    Before coming to NZ in 06 my house in West Sussex, England was started in 1735. In true Kiwi style it was not finished until 1755

    The Commical Commission's Report said that the level of taxes on fuel was "not a competition" matter, so not an issue for the commission.

    Funny, that.

    Tax and competition are two quite different things.
    Currently competition wprks well where there is some (where there's Gull etc) but not elsewhere.
    Nothing to do with tax.

    Like every other business in the history of business... why do we need a government inquiry to come up with that finding?
