Clark accused of ‘disembowelling’ NZ defence forces 09 Mar The review provoked an outraged response from the opposition. Jenny Shipley, leader of the conservative National Party, which had planned to upgrade the 17 ageing Skyhawk combat aircraft with F s before it was voted out of power , said the changes meant New Zealand would be “bludging” off its neighbours for its defence.
This new defence plan aims to develop adequate depth in our defence capability, rather than try to carry on with inadequate breadth. The Prime Minister, John Howard, said it would have international consequences. Six of the Skyhawks are permanently based south of Sydney and the crews train with Australian forces under a bilateral agreement, which Mr Howard had previously asked Miss Clark to continue.
New Zealand forces have an unblemished history of supporting the Western allies through both world wars, as well as in the Korean and Vietnam wars.

June 1, – Philadelphia 76er Ben Simmons and supermodel Kendall Jenner leaves me flummoxed. My first reaction is to giggle. Just ask Kanye West and Lamar Odom. Then there is the part of me that’s ashamed. How could it be Jenner’s fault if Simmons’ game falls off? This whole concept is why Yoko Ono is still trying to prove to Beatles fans that she’s not the temptress that caused the Fab Four to break up.
We aren’t worried that Simmons will somehow stop hitting free-throws because he’s gagagoogoo over Jenner. He can handle that. There is a lot of brouhaha that comes with living one’s private life publicly. We want no part of it. We don’t want our young point guard, Simmons, to be a part of it either. Or burner Twitter accounts, for that matter. But, honestly, should we really be surprised by that a rich, hot year-old NBA player wants to date a celebrity?

The Lions have snatched victory with two tries in the final 20 minutes and a penalty goal with three minutes to go. The All Blacks’ match winning streak on home soil is over. The Lions were drifting out of the contest after a series of ill-discipline plays after the sending off of Sonny Bill Williams. Then Conor Murray snatched a try and Farrell kicked the conversion and penalty to steal the win.
The All Blacks were sensational considering they were down a man and the Lions had to win the game by chancing their arm in the wet. Beauden Barrett had a great game but Sam Cane was the best player on the field until he was replaced. Conor Murray’s reputation continues to grow and he was one of the best for the Lions and Jonathan Davies again did the little things well. Sonny Bill Williams’ sending off enabled the Lions’ bench to outshine the All Blacks who had limited options for tactical change.
The Lions get the ball back 22 metres out. Cruden’s cross-kick does not come off and finds touch 22 metres out from the Lions line. If the Lions win the lione they will have to keep the ball for 56 seconds to win the game 7:
