MSD paying inflated rents for emergency accommodation 'wasteful spending' - Luxon

National Party leader Christopher Luxon says people have to be held accountable for what he says was unacceptable practices paying inflated rents to private landlords. A scathing review by the Auditor General found that between November 2017 and June 2020, the Ministry for Social Development shelled out more than $37 million to private landlords and property managers to house homeless people. The review says frontline Ministry staff "seemed to have little control over what they would pay" and that landlords were often able to name their price - in some cases, triple the market rate. Luxon told Morning Report that the issue is symptomatic of a lot of wasteful spending of taxpayer money.

The National Party is describing the police's insistence they don't specifically collect crime-related data on emergency housing as a "campaign of denial". A number of reports, dating back to July 2020, and a series of inter-agency emails, suggest otherwise. Police reports detail crime trends in particular areas - they also reflect concerns about the impact on the wider community. In one Auckland district chosen for analysis - Waitemata East - there's a clear spike in crime and police call outs. RNZs first asked for any records about reported incidents and any noticeable increases in violence or crime in April - but was told Police do not "routinely" collect such data.

***Thank you for listening to this free version of the "Unauthorized Disclosure" weekly podcast hosted by Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola.*** Zoe Alexandra, a journalist with People's Dispatch, joins the show to discuss the election in Honduras, where left-wing presidential campaign of Xiomara Castro triumphed at the polls. Going back to 2009, the United States backed a coup that forced President Manuel Zelaya out of power. The U.S. backed a fraudulent election in 2017. His wife, Xiomara, won in a free and fair election that somewhat astonishingly is not being contested by the U.S. government. That likely reflects just how corrupt and terrible 12 years of right-wing National Party rule has been for the people of Honduras. Zoe describes the deeply entrenched problems fueled by outgoing President Juan Orlando Hernandez and the role of the U.S. in making the root causes of poverty and violence worse through neoliberal exploitation, expansion of policing, and militarization of the country.

Barry Soper: Parliament passes 'Self-ID Bill' at third reading, making it easier for trans people to update birth certificates

Heather du Plessis-Allan Drive

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 9, 2021 5:46


Politicians shared emotional messages to the "brave" trans and wider community as they supported legislation that allows people to change their birth certificates to reflect who they are.It has been over four years since the Bill was introduced, and it has been thoroughly debated - at times fiery - at each stage finally getting to a point where today it passed its third reading today unanimously.Green Party MP Dr Elizabeth Kerekere, a longtime advocate in the rainbow community, was in tears and had to pause to gather her emotions as she spoke in support of the Bill in the House."This bill recognises that those who need to amend their birth certificate can do so, that the courts do not have the right to make that choice for them, that parents do not have that right, that cis-gender people who don't even know them or care about them do not have that right."As a takatāpui, cis-lesbian fem ally to our takatāpui, trans and intersex non-binary whānau, I am very proud to commend this bill to the house," she said.Kerekere also made reference to the country's first and only transgender MP, Georgina Beyer.The Bill means people can amend the sex on a birth certificate on simple process without going through the Family Court, which involved appearing before a judge and disclosing private medical information.It will also not require people to provide evidence of medical treatment, which can be difficult to access, intrusive, and which the person in question may not want.Internal Affairs Minister Jan Tinetti said it was "a proud day in Aotearoa's history".She paid tribute to the people who submitted in favour of the change who had been "hurt, mocked, belittled and discriminated against"."A lot of discussion was aimed at trans women. As a cis woman I am proud to stand alongside my sisters."Trans misogyny is still misogyny."Tinetti referred to a time when she was principal at a school and an 8-year-old student, who the "world saw as a boy knew they were a girl".She worked through the journey with her, and she'd recently contacted the minister to thank her."We are changing legislation that is truly a step closer to an inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand."Keep proudly being you."National Party spokeswoman for women Nicola Grigg said few bills had had such a "complicated" passage through the House."But this Bill is in a much better state than when it was introduced in 2017."She said she understood the concerns of those who felt the change could diminish the status of women in society, and set a precedent for replacing sex in policy."Those views are genuinely held and we as parliamentarians have an obligation to listen."She said she was concerned some of those opposing the changes were blocked from organising debates on the topic.However, Gigg said she believed those fears were unfounded."The current law causes unnecessary stress for some people and I don't think it will set a precedent. Laws need to reflect the times we live in."All this is doing is modernising the process, it was a dated Act and this shifts it in the right direction."The self-identification provisions come into force in 18 months' time.This will give the Government opportunity to consult with the rainbow community and receive submissions and ensure the legislation works to support those it concerns.Consultation will begin next year on the regulations which will determine who is a suitably qualified third party to support applications for young people; find a way to make sure the sex markers available for the birth certificate include non-binary and cultural options; and determine any additional requirements for anyone seeking to amend their registered sex more than once.- by Michael Neilson, NZ Herald

The team gave a blow by blow account of the weeks events from Judith Collins' late demotion of Simon Bridges to Christopher Luxon's ascension to the top job. Jessica Mutch McKay also gave an insight into the chaotic look of the coverage as the 1News political team literally chased the story. Benedict Collins talked about the bad political judgement of Judith Collins saying that ‘Not getting caucus onside & demoting Simon Bridges' was hitting the self-destruct button and that Judith Collins was almost getting things right up until then in terms of polling trends. He said 'The Government's not had a great couple of weeks but the coverage has been dominated by National's implosion when it should have been capitalising on the Government's weaknesses, adding it was real ‘smack your head against the wall stuff from National'.

Daily News Brief by TRT World

*) Vaccine likely to protect against severe Covid from Omicron: BioNTech CEO BioNTech's Chief Executive Ugur Sahin says his company's Covid-19 vaccine will "likely offer strong protection" against any severe disease from the new Omicron virus variant. BioNTech's guarded confidence contrasts with a sense of alarm conveyed by the chief executive of rival vaccine maker Moderna, Stephane Bancel. Bancel had raised the prospect of a material drop in protection against the new coronavirus lineage from current vaccines. Sahin would not be drawn on whether Omicron will become as dominant as the Delta variant. "But even if, that in itself is no reason to panic," he said. *) China 'hunting' Taiwan citizens abroad through deportation Beijing has pressured foreign governments to deport hundreds of Taiwan nationals to China in what human rights activists describe as a "hunt for Taiwanese". Over 600 Taiwanese people were extradited from various countries to China between 2016 and 2019 to "undermine Taiwanese sovereignty,” a report found. Beijing has been pressuring governments to extradite hundreds of Taiwanese people, mostly accused of telecoms fraud to China, according to the rights group Safeguard Defenders. Those extradited to China faced "arbitrary detention, torture, enforced disappearances, and forced televised confessions", the group said. *) At least three people dead in Michigan high school shooting In the US state of Michigan, a student has gone on a shooting rampage at a high school north of Detroit. The 15-year-old suspect killed three students and injured eight other people, including a teacher. Police say he was in possession of a semi-automatic handgun when taken into custody. *) Castro set to become Honduras' president as rival concedes defeat Honduras' ruling party has conceded defeat in presidential elections, giving victory to leftist opposition candidate Xiomara Castro. Nasry Asfura of the National Party said in a statement that he had personally congratulated Castro, despite only about half of the voting tallies having been counted. Castro had 53 percent support to Asfura's 34 percent, according to the National Electoral Council. And finally… *) World Aids Day: Covid-19 diverted resources from AIDS fight The Covid-19 pandemic has diverted scientific and financial resources from the fight against AIDS, according to top US infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci. Marking World Aid Day, Fauci told the United Nations General Assembly global efforts to achieve the UN goal of ending AIDS by 2030 have been impeded by the pandemic. Fauci said that tackling Covid-19 has also disrupted supply chains and increased the risk for people with HIV of being infected with another deadly virus.

Also, Saudi Arabia recently announced a sudden ban on all Lebanese imports in response to critical comments made by the Lebanese minister of information about Saudi Arabia's role in the war in Yemen. Now, workers in Lebanon are feeling the pain.  Every day, the reporters and producers at The World are hard at work providing you with relevant, fact-based and human-centered news from across the globe.

While the National Party was in the throes of its leadership crisis last Wednesday night, Parliament's Speaker had hours earlier taken the highly unusual step of lambasting the Labour government over the way it rushed through the far reaching traffic light system legislation, under urgency. The law that seriously curbs the freedom of unvaccinated people was rushed through in a 24-hour urgent session in order to be passed in time to take effect this week. The Speaker Trevor Mallard, himself a Labour MP, said the Government and the House had failed to fully scrutinise the bill. He made a specific ruling before the third reading debate started on the COVID-19 Response (Vaccinations) Legislation Bill yesterday, to lodge the criticism. One of a raft of critics of the way the legislation was rushed through is constitutional and public law lecturer Dean Knight, Associate Professor at Victoria University of Wellington School of Law. He tells Kathryn it is a 'constitutional disgrace.' She also speaks with litigator and public law specialist Andrew Butler.
