Very satisfactory outcomes. 

Satisfactory outcomes news update.

1) Good to see this loser off the streets but I can't help but wonder if this P-fuelled-freak would have drawn the same public attention if it hadn't been for the gigantic cancerous growth protruding from his neck?

2) Aussie are a decent chance to progress out of group play after sinking the Japanese 3:1 this morning at the World Cup.

They were lucky though: down 1:0 with just six minutes of normal time remaining!
Cahill, who replaced Marco Bresciano after 51 minutes, has the knack of being in the right place at the right time, and he popped up once more in his role as the Socceroos' saviour to devastating effect.
In the 84th minute he lashed home a loose ball in the penalty area after a Lucas Neill long throw was only partially cleared. Three minutes later he seized on the ball just outside the penalty area and smashed a drive in off the post past Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi. And another substitute, John Aloisi, made sure of the three points in the second minute of stoppage time when he ran on to a pass, rounded a defender and wrapped proceedings up with a third.
It was an extraordinary - and justified - end to a remarkable game that Australia did not deserve to lose, even though that seemed to be their fate as the game entered its closing phase.

I've been impressed lately with the solid coverage the New Zealand we-only-see-rugby sports media has afforded the All Blacks.

It means you normally have to make it to at least page 4 or 5 in the sports section to realise the most popular sporting event in the world is actually on at the moment.

Is anyone aware of a radio frequency broadcasting the games in New Zealand?

3) In other news, New Zealand's stellar security regime can apparently be foiled by terrorists who have the audacity to employ that devious practice of slightly altering a name.
Mr Cunliffe said Ali's true identity became apparent only after he arrived in New Zealand - "he used a variation of his name in applying for entry".
But the Weekend Herald has been told the only variation on his passport was the use of the initial A for Abdullah, and that was corrected in a note inside the passport.

But it appears the guy was only detected at all because of of a suspicious flying school instructor.
An Auckland flying school manager believes officials were unaware of Rayed Mohammed Abdullah Ali until he tipped them off that the man was seeking flying lessons.

Even though Abdullah wasn't picked up because he used only his intials Helen Clark appears delighted that he was detected at all.
Prime Minister Helen Clark said yesterday that it was difficult to police border security, and the critical fact was that Ali had been found. "The key thing for me is that Mr Ali was detected, he was apprehended, and he was deported. That is a very satisfactory outcome."

Keep up the good work Helen.
