Dratsab: 
codyc1515: "We are surprised that the House received no report from the Attorney-General under section 7 of the Bill of Rights Act on the bill?s inconsistency with the Bill of Rights. We accept that this is consistent with officials? advice, but we find it difficult to follow their reasoning. The Supreme Court found that existing video camera surveillance as an adjunct to a search warrant is illegal and in breach of section 21 of the Bill of Rights Act given the absence of express statutory authority to do so. The effect of the bill as it came to select committee overruled that, and did so retrospectively."


Interesting quote (as it's wrong), where's it from?

Clearly you have no idea what you are on about, I cited the official government source (http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/government/2011/0333/latest/DLM4068800.html) directly in a post I made above. It states exactly what I put:

"We are surprised that the House received no report from the Attorney-General under section 7 of the Bill of Rights Act on the bill’s inconsistency with the Bill of Rights. We accept that this is consistent with officials’ advice, but we find it difficult to follow their reasoning.The Supreme Court found that existing video camera surveillance as an adjunct to a search warrant is illegal and in breach of section 21 of the Bill of Rights Act given the absence of express statutory authority to do so. The effect of the bill as it came to select committee overruled that, and did so retrospectively. Given that the Supreme Court found the actions now to be temporarily permitted are in breach of section 21 of the Bill of Rights Act, it seems axiomatic that retrospectively reinstating those infringements on the rights of New Zealanders (which will almost certainly result in New Zealanders being convicted on the basis of that illegally obtained evidence) must be a breach of section 21."

Lol - it's definitely not me that doesn't know what I'm talking about.

Take another look at the document you've (accurately) quoted. It's a commentary surrounding the introduction of the Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Act 2011. It's made by politicians and is not, and should not be construed as, a legal opinion.

As I previously stated, the Supreme Court Judges (in "Omar HAMED and others v The Queen", aka "HAMED and ORS v R", "R v HAMED" or "the Hamed decision") used the words "improperly obtained" and "unlawful". These words do not mean illegal.

I know exactly what words the Supreme Court used as I have access to the full judgment document. You don't: it contains much information which is not allowed in the public arena. You can obtain a redacted version from the courtsofnz website here - the specific words I refer to are all there for you to see. I would be obliged if you could point out where the Judges have used the word illegal.

Talk to your lawyer again...

No doubt they'd try the "Bin Laden" on me and dump me out at sea.
Anyway, can we please get back on topic......

Good point, what is the topic? I kinda hoped that this thread would help me understand the Occupy movement.

As I see it, the intention was a reinforcement of democratic process (governance by majority) rather than influence by minority (1%)?

That is as I see it too, and have come to realise like most activists they are the minority protesting because they want to be the 1% that governs Wink

I'd expect to see a strong upsurge in the Occupy protests in Australia... The grounding of Qantas will have had a major impact on the depressant levels in citizens around major metropolitan areas due to the dramatically reduced chemtrail distribution... Combine that with the very understandable upset passengers are feeling and I suspect there could be a lot of transient support for the Occupy movement over there.

I'm still shocked however that Joyce was allowed to ground the fleet... Perhaps he was able to arrange a higher concentration drop from the few remaining Jetstar flights.

Cheers - N

I am told  by a very reliable source, surely also known by a few of the activists here (why are they so quiet on this?), that Qantas subsidiary Jetconnect is loading up with the stuff here and on arrival at their Australian ports of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane follow special arrival procedures taking them around about and over the cities in order to give the populace a good sprinkling Wink.


Remember, you heard it here first.

Would this be called:  Occupy Qantas...

Sorry folks. I knew I was just opening up a can of worms when I started this thread.
Haters gonna hate.
Trolls gonna troll.

I suppose it's really up to each individual to decide the best way to live their own lives.
If it involves protest in the form of Occupying, so be it.

I am still not understanding the point of the occupation protests despite reading about this extensively. I have even been told several times that not understanding what they are about only proves I am part of the problem, whatever that means.

Until someone can explain to me why people who earn over arbitraryPersonalIncome() are the problem with the economy I will continue to fail to comprehend the protests.

I can understand the point of view of many of the protesters but feel their argument is directed in the wrong direction.
