  • Hard News: A call from Curia,

    Weren't you uncomfortable giving your politicial opinions given the recent disclosure of hate posting from those who disagree with the government? It wasn't like it was an anonymous poll.

    If it were me I might suspect that they were attempting to find out political leanings of those in the media for post election manipulation.

  • Access: Disability: Election Promises…,

    I was there last Thursday. Mojo was on target, and Labour's Chris Faafoi was also. As for the others at least they showed up, but I can't say much else for their understanding of disability issues or their policies.

    I can read both of the articles without paying. Must have a limit on pageviews of each site.

  • Access: Disability abuse: it’s not OK,

    Thanks for posting. It's an area of slow moving change. More coverage in media/blogs etc might speed up the change in attitude.

  • Hard News: Media3: We have much to discuss,

    Well hopefully it also includes those horrendously distasteful images shown on "reality" tv, with people who have just been in accidents showing their boobs half out when they are clearly in a dazed state and unable to hold an objecting arm in the face of the camera.

  • OnPoint: MSD's Leaky Servers,

    Yeah, the response from the ministry is as comical as the rest of this saga. I wish I could bet on Novopay outcomes somewhere so I could make some easy money. Of course tonight's pay isn't going to go well! Their saving grace is the Hobbit opening which get's Campbell off their ass for another night.

    It occurred to me a few weeks ago that the system might be a scam target. I can picture someone posing from MoE coming into a school office with overworked and stressed, saying they were there to help. God only knows what damage such a person could get up to if left in the room.

    And has anyone else noticed that they have kept quoting the same 8000 errors figure for the last few weeks even though the Principal's association has said that there are STILL new problems arising (interview was on Breakfast yesterday)?

  • OnPoint: #WTFMSD: "Damning", in reply to Matthew Poole,

    But they do not if you include all paperwork submitted by beneficiaries. Seems to me that would be vaguely classified as a record. They have policies about what they scan in so not everything is kept (and hard copies are not always kept either).

  • OnPoint: The Source,

    This poor guy does everything he can to help and THIS is how he is treated by MSD?!

    Clearly they have a follow the leader type approach. In the same way Paula Bennett attacked beneficiaries who were critical of her policy, her staff have set up this guy for attack via media.

    I am disgusted with MSD.

    Thank goodness it was taken to Kevin Ng or WHO KNOWS HOW LONG THIS WOULD HAVE PERSISTED? I'd donate to this other dude if I had a way. He has been set up to take the fall when MSD failed to act - they could have closed the Kiosks last week. God knows they would have if each Kiosk were an atm machine with WINZ money spewing out.
