Rural round-up "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

Fresh Food Out of Reach:

Amy Wiggins writes in the front page of the NZ Herald on Friday November 10th 2017, that as the prices for fresh fruit and vegetables rise they are becoming out of reach for low income families. The article goes on to say that many New Zealanders are struggling to afford to buy enough fresh produce to feed their families a healthy diet.

I agree with both of these statements and in fact when you take into account the land use restrictions on the horticultural industry, contained within the Healthy Rivers Proposed Plan Change 1 (PC1); this is going to create extremely serious food security problems into the future.

A huge percentage of the countrys population rely on the Waikato Regions fruit and vegetable producers for security of their food supply and with the restrictions on horticultural land use that occur as a result of PC1, they are going to lose the security of supply that they currently have. . . 

TPP back on with new name, Canada apparently back on board  Pattrick Smellie:

Nov. 11 walked away from the deal, but returned to the negotiating table claiming a misunderstanding.

Briefing New Zealand media ahead of the APEC Leaders Retreat in Da Nang, Viet Nam, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said : I wouldnt want to speculate but I think probably were in a more stable place than we were yesterday.

Asked whether Canada was back in the tent and TPP was back on she said: I would characterise it in that way, yes. . .

Fair not equal, equal not fair "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

How very sad for everyone involved that a dispute over a will ended up in court:

A woman who claimed it was unfair her brother was left the family farm while she received $1 million and a bach has again failed to get a bigger slice of their parents estate.

The Talbot family has been farming in South Canterbury for generations. The principal farm, Kingsborough Farm, was initially bought by the siblings grandfather in 1915.

It was run by Edwin and Pamela Talbot until their elder years when their only son, Graham, took over the management and financial responsibility of Kingsborough from 2006.

When Edwin and Pamela died in 2014 and 2015, respectively, they granted probate of their estates to Graham in their wills something that had previously been discussed among the whole family.

The evidence at trial established that Graham worked long hours on Kingsborough, that he took minimal drawings, and that it is likely that the farm would have had to have been sold if Graham had not left school to work on it, the Court of Appeals decision said. 

This is not an unusual situation.

One or more family members works on the farm, taking minimal drawings, ploughing more  back into the farm; making a significant contribution to the maintenace, development and capital growth of the property; and earning a bigger share of the estate than other family members who sacrifice and contribute nothing.

Jillian and her sister Rachel an unwilling but necessary participant in the court proceedings had not shown an interest in working on the farm, which their parents had wanted to keep in the family.

It was their intention from at least 1999, and probably earlier, that Graham, as the only child who had shown any interest in farming Kingsborough, should receive the family farm, and that Rachel and Jillian should share equally in the remainder of their estates.

The couple left Jillian and Rachel over $1m each with Jillian also being given the family bach.

The Court of Appeal said the key issue for it to determine was whether or...

Flowers, Remembrance and the Art of War "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

Each flower expresses a different view on war: red embodies commemoration of sacrifice; white opposes political violence and remembers all war victims.

Before 1914, flowers in everyday life spelt beauty, femininity and innocence; they were seen as part of womens culture. But during the first world war, that changed. Men gathered posies of flowers on battlefields and dried them in honour of the dead, they turned to wild flowers as motifs for paintings and photographs, and they recognised in blue cornflowers and red poppies the fragility of life.

Historian Paul Fussell referred to the red poppy, Papaver rhoeas, as an indispensable part of the symbolism of WWI. When, on November 11, those who fought and died in WWI are commemorated, the sanguine colour of the red poppy, a flower that grew in profusion on Flanders Fields, is a vivid reminder to the living of the cost of sacrifice in war.

At the end of the conflict, artificial replicas of the Flanders poppy were sold in Allied countries to be worn in honour of the dead. Their resistance to decay became an embodiment of everlasting memory.

However, the red poppy was not always adopted without criticism. After 1933, in opposition to the symbolism of it, peace ceremonies appropriated the white poppy. Each flower expresses a different view on war: red embodies commemoration of sacrifice; white opposes political violence and remembers all war victims.

As living forms, as art, and as symbols, the wildflowers that soldiers encountered in WWI Europe help us negotiate the unimaginable enormity of war and deepen the solemnity of remembrance.

We are the dead

Among the most affecting, but least talked about, Australian war paintings that officially commemorate and remember the fallen soldiers of the First World War is George Lamberts Gallipoli Wild Flowers (1919). Painted while Lambert served as Official War Artist, the work is unusual for the absence of soldiers bodies shown in action or in death. Yet it alludes to both by the inclusion of an....

Was the TPP agreement about trade or global politics? I.E Sticking it to Trump? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Given the way in which a number of supposedly insoluble issues were resolved, apparently, at APEC an over-riding question emerges.

To whit, did in fact Trumps tirade on trade at the APEC CEOs summit seen below

result in a collective pushback for the TPP11 and by extension the rest of the APEC grouping.

Did a number of nations swallow some dead rats as part of a perhaps subliminal desire to effectively tell a posturing caricature of a President to butt out and that effectively that Americas day is over. This being the theme of a major piece in The Economist:-

On trade, he remains wedded to a zero-sum view of the world, in which exporters win and importers lose. (Are the buyers of Ivanka Trump-branded clothes and handbags, which are made in Asia, losers?) Mr Trump has made clear that he favours bilateral deals over multilateral ones, because that way a big country like America can bully small ones into making concessions. The trouble with this approach is twofold. First, it is deeply unappealing to small countries, which by the way also have protectionist lobbies to overcome. Second, it would reproduce the insanely complicated mishmash of rules that the multilateral trade system was created to simplify and trim. The Trump team probably will not make a big push to disrupt global trade until tax reform has passed through Congress. But when and if that happens, all bets are offNAFTA is still in grave peril

More on The Economist piece later, but that extract perhaps provides some useful context for what transpired at APEC.

If the Trump administration is not entirely tone deaf it should listen and take note. Collectively smaller nations possess clout and strength. Behaving like a bully is not a great idea, especially when there are other bullies in your backyard with more local clout.

China for one will probably be very happy with what the TPP nations did. A palpable win in many respects for them

TPP some questions for National "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

The news from Vietnam on the changes to TPP raises some interesting questions. Some on the overall agreement as it now stands, others on why Labour now promotes it.

This post focuses though on  more troubling issues.

  • Given the apparent ease with which these issues were supposedly resolved and the fact that National seemed to waive these concerns away as too hard to fix,why was Parker with his officials so rapidly able to achieve this apparently beneficial outcome for NZ?
  •  Were officials actually progressing these issues in the background before the election?
  • Did National ignore the issues to NZs detriment?
  • Was Groser the impediment?
  • Was NZ led by Groser too focused on US access rather than the whole?
  • Are the changes merely cosmetic, rather than substantial?
  • Given Japans previous supposed intransigence on several issues why did they apparently cave at the last?

We deserve answers from National. Failure to front on this will allow concerns to fester.

Trump One Year On "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

From The Atlantic

Its a year after Donald Trumps upset election victory. Before and after the 2016 election, President Trump referred to journalists as enemies to himself and to the American people. But his victory wasnt just a success in vilifying the media, it was a success in manipulating it. Trump was a media figure, skilled at drawing attention. And news organizations were unused to being so squarely part of the story.

What lessons have journalists taken from the 2016 campaign and President Trumps election? Whats changed since then? And what should change going forward? In this episode of Radio Atlantic, Adrienne LaFrance, the editor of TheAtlantic.com, and Yoni Appelbaum, the magazines politics and policy editor, join Matt and Jeff to look back and look ahead one year after the Trump Era began.

Trumps denial of facts "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Still Trump defends Putin against the combined wisdom and advice of the US Intelligence Agencies. What makes his defence even worse is that he vilifies the intelligence community as political hacks

David Frum has a useful piece on this at The Atlantic.

A key quote:-

What is becoming ever-more undeniable is Trumps complicity in the attack after the factand his willingness to smash the intelligence and counter-intelligence agencies in order to protect Putin, Russia, and evidently himself. Consider what the president said to reporters on Saturday: Then you hear its 17 agencies [who agree that Russia meddled in the elections], whoa, its three. And one is [former CIA Director John] Brennan, and one is whatever. I mean give me a break, theyre political hacks. So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with that.

This willingness to defend Putin raises many questions. Including did Trump actually understand the oath he took at his inauguration? Every day one wonders is he did!

PROPHETIC WORDS INDEED "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Many of you will have been to Hawaii and while there taken the tour to visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour.   It is a sobering experience.  

Not too many of you would have flown over the South China Sea off Kuantan where the Prince of Wales and the Repulse were sunk by the Japanese on the third day of hostilities.    On a clear day you can see their indistinct shapes through the water and when I flew over the site fuel oil was still making its way to the surface.

Force 'Z' which comprised the two capital ships and four destroyers sailed from the Singapore Naval Base to intercept that Japanese invasion fleet that was landing troops in south Thailand and north Malaya.   It was commanded by Admiral Tom (Thumb) Phillips who was one of the dwindling band of Admirals who failed to appreciate the changing dynamic of air power.   As it was the fleet had no air cover even though this could have been provided by the deployment of (albeit obsolescent) Buffaloe fighters from Singapore forward to the Kuantan airfield.

Phillips was a good friend of the later Air Chief Marshal (Bomber) Harris who used to tease him both about his height and his stubborn refusal to believe a battleship could be sunk from the air.  It is recorded that Harris once told Phillips ... 'One day Tom you'll be standing on a box on your bridge and your ship will be smashed to pieces by bombers and torpedo aircraft and as she sinks your last words will be ... that was a f*****g big mine'.

Prophetic words indeed ... 840 sailors were killed in the action.  Phillips went down with his ship.

Labour happy for taxpayers to be "rorted" "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

Radio news has Carmel Sepuloni, Minister for Social Development, saying she will get rid of the penalty for not naming fathers of children who are supported by benefits. We knew it was coming and new information indicates NZ First is going to support the change.

To reiterate on past posts, one of the major reasons mothers refuse to name fathers is to help them dodge child support.

In the past Labour has acknowledged this.

From parliament, 2004:

Heather Roy: When will he admit that this is just a rort so that fathers can dodge child support, and why should taxpayers always have to pick up the bill?
Hon STEVE MAHAREY: It is a rort, and I have said time and time again in this Parliament that fathers must front up to their obligations, and we will make sure they do, as much as we can.
Maharey meant it and he increased the penalty in an effort to reduce the rort.

But today Labour  don't care what is costs the taxpayers. And apparently they don't care about children being denied their father's name on their birth certificate.

Sepuloni will argue that the penalty isn't working. However the numbers who incur a section 70a penalty have fallen. In 2004 there were 19,443.

Last year the number had fallen to 13,616.

As Steve Joyce would say: The TPP agreement is pretty legal "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Crisis talks among Trans Pacific Partnership ministers appear to have pulled the free trade pact back from the brink of collapse, although it still faces an uncertain future. Late on Friday Canada boycotted a meeting of leaders from the 11 nations involved, throwing the deal into disarray. But after trade ministers met, with Canada back []

Westland Looks to Take Its Wastewater Out of the Hokitika River:

Westland Milk Products said today it is well down the path toward potentially taking its treated wastewater discharge out of the Hokitika River.

CEO Toni Brendish says that in September last year Westland re-opened its investigations into an ocean outfall for its treated wastewater discharge, which would take it out of the Hokitika River two years prior to the existing in-river discharge consent expiring in 2021. A final decision on whether to go with the option will be made early in 2018. The investigations are at the stage that the company is about to go back to the West Coast Regional Council for a minor variation to its existing permit. . . 

Challenging future facing livestock farming Nigel Malthus:

The disruptive forces facing New Zealand agriculture could mean a tough future for livestock farming, says the new president of the New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management (NZIPIM).

Farm consultant Craig Osborne, from Oxford, North Canterbury, has been named to replace Guy Blundell, heading the institute for the next two-year term.

Osborne says that where NZ farming is heading is the million-dollar question and a tough one to answer because of all the competing forces gaining momentum globally. . .

WTO declines Indonesia appeal on ruling over trade barriers that hurt NZ beef trade   Jonathan Underhill

(BusinessDesk) The World Trade Organization has turned down Indonesias appeal against a ruling that trade barriers imposed since 2011, which hurt New Zealands beef exports, were inconsistent with global trade rules.

New Zealand had invoked WTO dispute settlement consultations with Indonesia in 2013 and 2014 over 18 trade barriers it said had resulted in an 80 percent drop in the nations exports to Indonesia of beef and horticultural products such as apples and onions. Prior to the restrictions, Indonesia was New Zealands second-largest market for beef, worth $180 million a year, and the accumulated trade impact was an estimated $500 million to $1 billion, according to the complaint. . .

Trumps dictatorial instincts come to the fore "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

President Trump increasingly seems to regard the normal checks and balances of USA politics as unreasonable. In particular he seems to want to be able to order politically motivated prosecutions and investigations of people and companies he takes a dislike to. In fact he appears to act more as a ruler of a tin pot banana republic.

This quote is symptomatic:-

You know, the saddest thing is that because Im the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department, Mr. Trump said in a radio interview on Thursday on the Larry OConnor Show. I am not supposed to be involved with the F.B.I. Im not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. And Im very frustrated by it.

Trump is a tyrant in waiting. Till now the various institutions of the government appear to have resisted him, but given how he is stacking the judiciary and the dubious quality of a number of his cabinet appointees how long this will last may be problematic.

Consequently we may be at the dawn  of a dark age in American politics with a baleful influence on the world at large.
