Did dear Hekia lie?

Oil DrillerImage via Wikipedia

A dirty deal requires dirty lies - did dear Hekia lie?

They say you know your opponent’s stand is dishonourable when they resort to spreading lies and promoting falsehoods about your position.

The government’s Acting Energy and Resources Minister in attacks on opponents to deep sea oil drilling has been caught out lying and spreading slurs that misrepresented their position.

Gisborne District councillor Manu Caddie accused (Hekia Parata) of lying, or “deliberately misleading the public”, in an article in The Gisborne Herald on Saturday in which she said the exploration permit would involve only 2D and 3D data gathering, not drilling.

The company would decide whether to start drilling once they had all the information and, if they did decide to drill, they would have to apply for a mining permit, she said.

But Manu Caddie says this was a blatant lie.

The permit signed last year by her predecessor allowed the company to drill one exploratory well within 60 months of the commencement of the permit, he said in a written statement.

“There is no need for Petrobras to come back and ask the Government for another permit before they start drilling . . . the permit expressly gives permission to drill a well.”…

…Ms Parata also said there had been “scaremongering” going on that seismic monitoring could cause earthquakes.

That claim has been made numerous times by anti-drilling group Te Ahi Kaa in various media.

But Mr Caddie said this morning that the group had been misquoted.

“First they ignore you. Then they mock you. Then they attack you. And then you win.” – Ghandi

If something is starting to mold, use your best judgment, but sometimes just cutting off the moldy part makes the rest salvageable
as juice. A balance between speed and quality must be attained.
There are other way to make orange juice, such as using
juicers, but this is the quickest and easiest way to make a fresh batch
of orange juice that can be placed directly on the table.

These supported levels were seen as a sign of prosperity in marriage,
and were the beginning of the evermore elaborate structural designs that we see in
cake design today. There are types of cream toppings which
are used for warm areas and temperature. Based on each of these themes, there are collections for each category.
