Information Sought, Auckland Assault

Detective Senior Sergeant Chris Allan:

Auckland City Police investigating an assault outside the Shakespeare Tavern in Auckland yesterday are appealing to the public for information.

Police were called to the Albert Street address at 8:12pm, where upon arrival, a man was located with critical injuries. He is now in a serious condition in ICU.

A 27-year-old man has been arrested and charged. He will appear in the Auckland District Court tomorrow.

Police want to stress that violence in any form will not be tolerated.

“This is a real tragedy, but what makes it worse is these incidents are completely avoidable.

“They have a major long-lasting impact not only on those involved, but their friends and families, especially at this time of the year.

“We wish to thank the members of the public who have assisted to date.”

Police would like to speak to anyone with information or footage relating to this incident. Police can be contacted on 105 or anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. Please reference file number 231216/8762.

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy

Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
