Auckland-based pokie grant organisation Trillian Trust gave $213,000 to a football entity associated with high-flying football club Auckland City FC after the entity was dissolved. Trillian Trust has funded the Super City Youth Academy since it was established in April 2017, but the academy never filed accounts in four years and was dissolved in June last year by the Companies Office. After the dissolution, Trillian continued to fund the defunct organisation to the tune of $213,000 for the next 14 months until the discrepancy was highlighted by a Stuff investigation . The Ministry of Social Development also provided Super City YA with a $54,412 wage subsidy in August 2021, two months after the organisation was dissolved.

Dear Newsweek, Myself and my husband are not a new couple. We got married seven years ago, and things have changed so much between us. He does not socialize anymore and he has no friends of his own, I don't see my friends anymore and we don't go anywhere together. He does the shopping for the house, he tells people lies about how I mistreat him, and he tells people how difficult it is to live with me. He says it's his home and he calls me all sorts of names, makes fun of my first marriage which failed, and says very insulting and vulgar things about it. We argue a lot, especially when I see him hiding his phone when I walk into the room. I found out that he has regular conversations with a woman in one of the offices in our town. I told his family about what's going on and they just shrugged it off...if only they knew what I have to go through every day. His family have occasionally been friendly to me, but they have a very negative attitude toward me. I did not get … [Read more...] about My husband has stolen my personality—What should I do?

“Can you believe these are my customers?” Donald Trump once asked while surveying the crowd in the Taj Mahal casino’s poker room. “Look at those losers,” he said to his consultant Tom O’Neil, of people spending money on the floor of the Trump Plaza casino. Visiting the Iowa State Fair as a presidential candidate in 2015, he was astounded that locals fell in line to support him because of a few free rides in his branded helicopter. In the White House, he was sometimes stunned at his own backers’ fervor, telling aides, “They’re fucking crazy.” Yet they loved him and wanted to own a piece of him, and that was what mattered most. Almost immediately after his defeat in 2020, Trump began fundraising off his claims of fraud, turning to his ardent fans for support. Plenty of people donated small amounts of money to continue a fight he swore was valid and building toward action. It was difficult to discern, though, whether Trump actually believed what he was saying about the election. I … [Read more...] about Three Conversations With Donald Trump
Royal biographer Angela Levin first met the Queen Consort in 2015 and has since spent years speaking to her friends, staff and former colleagues to piece together a full picture of her life. Here, in the second exclusive extract from her forthcoming biography, she unpicks the frosty relationships between Camilla and senior royals, and how they finally thawed - plus reveals astonishing claims of a plot by Prince Andrew and Princess Diana to take the crown from Charles... Camilla and Queen Elizabeth One of the Queen Consort’s greatest challenges was getting Queen Elizabeth to accept her both as a member of the Royal Family and her daughter-in-law. Her Majesty had found her eldest son rather irritating as a child and his refusal to move on and abandon Camilla meant he was still not doing as he was told. Queen Elizabeth was also influenced by her mother, who had wanted the then Prince Charles to marry Diana Spencer and enjoyed a warm relationship with Camilla’s first husband … [Read more...] about Prince Andrew ‘lobbied hard’ to stop Charles becoming king, claims royal insider
Two men have been interviewed by police regarding their involvement in an alleged cash-for-honours scandal involving one of King Charles’ charities. In a brief statement, the Metropolitan Police confirmed they had interviewed a man aged in his 50s and a man in his 40s under caution earlier this month. The force launched an investigation into the scandal in February following a series of newspaper articles alleging a wealthy Saudi donor to The Prince’s Foundation was offered help securing citizenship and a knighthood. Anti-monarchy group Republic made a formal complaint to Met detectives about Charles and former close confidant Michael Fawcett, who was forced to temporarily stand down from his position as the foundation’s chief executive following the allegations. Last autumn, the Mail on Sunday published a letter from 2017 in which Mr Fawcett reportedly wrote that he was willing to make an application to change businessman Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz’s honorary CBE to … [Read more...] about Police interview two men over King Charles’s charity cash-for-honours
The Home Secretary has told police chiefs that the public expect officers to visit the scene of every burglary in a drive to get back to basics . In her first major statement since taking up the post , Suella Braverman said police needed to stop wasting time on “symbolic gestures” and initiatives on diversity and instead focus on “common sense policing”. In a letter to all 43 chief constables and police commissioners in England and Wales, she said she had been “dismayed by the perceived deterioration of public confidence” in police in the past few years following “too many” high-profile incidents, such as the murder of Sarah Everard, that had “shattered public trust” in communities across the UK. She said there not only had to be a change in culture and standards but also a drive to bring down neighbourhood crime and anti-social behaviour . Ms Braverman made it clear that this meant a big improvement in the charging rates not only for rape and sexual offences but also … [Read more...] about Fight crime and forget ‘diversity and inclusion’ schemes, Suella Braverman tells police
