As I have said many times, the number of people out there that couldn't care less about anyone else is far higher than many realise. Until our legal system sends a message that something other that smacking these people with a wet bus ticket (i.e. actually hand down a decent prison sentence and set a precedent) is going to happen mindless narcissistic people like this guy will keep risking 5,000,000 people's lives.
    Indeed.

    Our authorities better wise up real fast - it just needs a few #&@# holes likes these Ozzie sheilas to create a communal spread & crisis.

    Thank you. 6 months "floated" offshore so another couple of weeks being looked after in luxury is a breeze :-)

    Scumbag of the month Mark Bryers, ex Blue Chip, behind bars.

    Bloody good show by the Aussies - no pussy footing around with this repeat offender & con-artist.

    Scumbag of the day the NZDF

    "NZDF failed to adequately remedy its earlier incorrect statements and advice, even after it knew they were wrong."
    Defence officials continued to repeat its incorrect statements to the public and to ministers "due to failures of organisational structure, systems and culture," it said.


    Operation Burnham: What happened with the SAS during a deadly incursion in Afghanistan The long-awaited findings of what happened during the joint operation released.

    NZDF personnel also removed the possibility of civilian casualties during the Operation from reports, it found.

    Former Defence Minister Wayne Mapp failed to correct this and "continued the false narrative" that there were no civilian casualties, despite knowing it was possible, the inquiry found.

    Kudos to Nicky Hagar (and John stevenson?) yet again for seeking out the truth.

    AND

    Gordon Campbell on the virtues (and fluffed opportunities) of the Operation Burnham report


    "Really?
    After all, the Burnham report contains ample evidence of a remarkably consistent pattern of false information being created and sustained over the course of several years. From the outset, problematic facts were wilfully misconstrued, edited, suppressed, misfiled and lost. Regardless – according to the report – there was no deliberate plan to deceive the public. So…with the armed forces now under new leadership and with a bit of added external monitoring to keep them on track, the NZDF can (allegedly) be expected to ensure that nothing similar will ever happen again. After a stern chiding in the report and a couple of penitent press conferences, this leopard can be trusted to change its spots. It seems more likely that such optimism would be misplaced."

    Fraudsters like Joanne Harrison cannot be left to shed their pasts like snakeskin
    Upon release and deportation back to the UK Harrison behaved - let the record show - entirely in character. The woman formerly known as Joanne Sharp and Joanne Sidebottom, then Joanne Harrison, began anew as Joanne and Joanna Middleton.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/stu...l-i-was-framed
    Fraudster Joanne Harrison told Far North District Council: ĎI was framedí
    The council subsequently learned Harrison was convicted of the Tower Insurance fraud in July 2007, while she was employed by the council.
    Ten years later, Harrison was convicted of defrauding the Ministry of Transport of $720,000.
    It comes as Stuff Circuitís new investigation, Alias, shows Harrison has adopted a new identity and used a fabricated employment history to find new jobs in England
    The latest investigation has prompted NZ First leader Winston Peters to admit that he was wrong to help force the resignation of former auditor-general Martin Matthews, who had been the chief executive of the Ministry of Transport when Harrison committed her fraud there.
