Now just a visitor to this country but it can move me to tears. How can the govt ministers sleep? Child poverty rises by 200000 in a year.

Volunteer assignments in pacific for a wide range of skills.

Just changed to spark and rewarded by them upgrading systems with no notice and remo al of services ." means you won’t be able to view your account balance or track your usage, top up a Prepaid mobile, or use your Prepaid mobile overseas during the upgrade.
We know these things can be frustrating and we will be working hard to have everything up and running as soon as possible on Monday afternoon. Thanks for your understanding."
Too right they are frustrating but also an indication of how cavalier the attitude of a major service provider can be.

A lesson for other cities including Auckland, perhaps.

"Endless sprawl? That’ll keep the houses cheap (just ask Atlanta, Dallas and Phoenix) but it fucks up the planet and it seems to make us fatter and lonelier, plus cars are expensive. So maybe try doing townhouses if you can. Townhouses are great."
"For the love of god, keep adding homes. Keep adding homes so things don’t get any worse and you’re not trapped in a lose-lose-lose shitstorm like San Francisco."
"The poorest people will never be able to afford market-rate housing, and people in cheap but livable little homes tend to get into much less trouble than people in tents. So yeah, probably it’s a good idea to use taxes to build cheap but livable little homes for poor people, while also looking for other ways to help people get out of poverty."

With happy memoriea of the people of Liverpool and disgust of the Thatcher years, it is good yo see justice surface after all these years. Give some thought to final paragraphs here. There are lessons to be learned everywhere those in power and with the public ear apply condemning labels to groups of people they fear or just find inconvenient.
