  1. Congratulations Boris! He won the Conservative leadership with a total of 92, 153 votes.
    May he return sanity to Great Britain.

    • Yes, it’s probably better to have a Brexiteer rather than a Remoaner deliver Brexit.

      While Johnson plays the clown, he is incredibly smart.

        • Yes; hence the push of the ‘south of the Med’ mongrels to get into the UK.
          It is high time this whole model was reviewed to match the current day.
          The current settings belong to a one car, one B+W TV, no microwave 1973.

          The world has changed and the welfare model needs to change.
          [Not to a Mad Gareth Morgan style though! ]

          There are moves afoot by the Law Society to reset to old 50/50 property split that comes from the same era and is hopelessly outdated in less than half a century.

    • Boris Johnson us a very dangerous nan. He’s a guy who has opinions and what’s more he delivers those opinions fearlessly and with humour.

      If there was such a man in New Zealand, who knows what trouble we would get into?

      I’m so glad we have that nice caring Muslim loving immigration promoting globalist lady mummy looking after us and protecting our wellbeing.

  2. Well done Boris, I like him, but I fear that he will be a bit flakey.
    An ideal Brexit for me would be no compensation, Britain controls her own borders and a trade deal. (Trade was after all the main reason the Common Market started Not a political union)
    But I doubt there will be time for the EU to consider any changes.

    • Actually more accurately, they bend their will to the populist views of the “what’s in it for wynston” party and he just wants baubles.

    • As an Englishman I don’t believe for one moment that the Conservative Party has adopted that position. I am not even convinced Boris Johnson has – he swings like a weather vane. The only political party that has clearly and genuinely adopted it is the Brexit Party, and the only politician to sincerely raise a banner for national sovereignty is its leader, Nigel Farage. My hope is that the situation will collapse into needing a General Election, and that the Brexit Party gains a massive overall majority.

      Then my dear old country might be saved. I do not believe Boris Johnson has the spine to do what is needed.

      • I hope you are wrong but fear you are right as a new PM is like changing deck chairs on the Titanic as MP’s are unlikely to change their views so a no deal is highly unlikely as is a fair exit deal from the Evil Union. I do dream that Deutsche Bank fails shortly and Trump slaps Germany with a large Nato Bill and Tariffs and the whole odious edifice of the EU collapses.

    • Trade may have been the reason the Common Market peddled for its existence, but political union in the form of an autocratic European Empire run by Germany was quite clearly the original impetus, and the current rapidly-forming result. Research the connection between the Nazis and the nascent EU.

  3. The COL’s working party on the RMA changes are reporting back today.
    Simon Bridges says good luck to them, that the whole RMA needs reforming and nothing will be done before the next election and that the COL love a working party.

    0

    0

    • Another working party. The RMA is a huge, vast tome of rules our District Plans are based on. Yes, it certainly adds to increased development costs, but to unravel it and make real change is not going to happen with these butt-heads in power. NZ is stuck with it.

      0

      0

      • As Simon said, good luck to them. They won’t have taken all the repercussions to their decisions into account.
        Judith Collins has been working on RMA reform so it will be interesting to see Judith shoot down the COL’s working party recommendations.

      • Sorry ducklin , I worked with the rma for years. There are no rules in the Rma. Many are saying it needs to be changed but no one says what part.

        0

        • It’s a mess of red tape for sure. I remember once upon a time a little red book of maybe 70 pages was the District Plan, until it came up for review. It turned into a 50 kg monster with triple the rules they can trip you up over, double the staff, and lots of $$$ is the only way to tick the boxes.

          • Now Parker has said what they are going to add it is a real worry.Putting provisions for climate change and whatever that means, is going to make it worse.
            He said they are going to streamline it so will be interesting to see the details.

            • Why would they bother. According to the leftie fruit loops, the world is going to end in less than 12 years. It will take more than 12 years to get any change.

    • Lest we forget:
      The RMA was passed by National under Simon Upton with Bolger as Labour Lite PM.

      Upton is an environmental nazi who left Parliament to become involved with the OECD on ‘Sustainability’ crap.

      It was started by Labour pre the 1990 election but passed and championed by National in 1991;
      about the same time they destroyed the Auckland Regional Council then claimed in 2008 that Auckland had no central planning so gave us the current Auckland council.

  5. And another tax on property

    For a “most open and transparent government evah” that promised “no new taxes”, there sure are a fuck of a lot of new taxes coming through and appearing in a most underhand and sneaky fashion.

    As with all propaganda-driven governments, they snuck this piece of legislation out under cover of the guffawing about socialist Cindy’s ‘reward the poor performers’ Cabinet reshuffle. Apparently in socialist Cindy’s tiny mind, running a rental property business isn’t a business like other businesses and even though it’s a loss leading investment for up to 10 years being a landlord – you can’t claim your losses anymore. Another tick down in business confidence coming and rents jumping up again.

    I tell you, these CoL bastards are out to break the economy (well it’s not all just the CoL, they’re getting a lot of help from their silent progressive partners the National party)

    Thanks to the awesome Ashley Church for calling this out.

    • Spent a shit load on my properties this last year. Made a good loss so next year I can do some more. Makes the houses more valuable and the tenants are going to be paying way more rent. Saw this coming. Lots of houses going Airnb so a real shortage of housing that ain’t going away soon.

  6. Ricky Gervais, pointing out the lose of common sense, and the travesty of ‘Human Rights Commission’.

    He wrote, “How did we get to the point where women are having to fight for the right to choose whether they wax some big old hairy cock & balls or not?” He added, “It is not a human right to have your meat & 2 veg polished.”

    Well apparently for twitter SJWs, it is a right. Twitter warriors clamored against Gervais’ post saying it’s language like that that has “threatened” trans people, and that it contributes to the larger “#waronwomen.”
    LGBTQ activist Amy Martin posted the declaration, “Ricky Gervais is a transphobe who (barely) disguises his bigotry as feminism. Real feminism includes all women, including trans women.”

    Gervais took time out to reply to Griffin, claiming, “Surely real feminism also covers a woman’s right not to have to wax someone’s knob & bollocks if they don’t want to.”
    https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/gabriel-hays/2019/07/22/ricky-gervais-called-transphobe-defending-women-refusing-wax

    Yet the Canadian Human Rights Commission accept the complaints by that certain ‘trans’.

  7. These people seem to seek power, credence, and they play all sorts of tricks and cover ups to gain the their way.

    As for the claim she removed 77 bullets from 32 Pulse nightclub victims, she admitted, “It is a false statement. I just made it up.”

    Aponte asked McCarthy why she “lied to the same people she wanted to help.” She responded by apologizing and saying she was “portraying a life that wasn’t true.”

    “I wanted to be somebody in the community, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I gave any impersonation. I knew it was wrong and I should have stopped — by no means did I ever mean to put anybody in jeopardy,” McCarthy said, according to the affidavit. ….

    …. McCarthy originally attacked claims she was lying as a “campaign smearing.” https://pjmedia.com/trending/lgbt-leading-dem-admits-lying-about-pulling-77-bullets-from-pulse-shooting-victims/

    It seems that they just keep popping up, and looking for positions of power.

  8. My morning post on KB. Not made it past moderation yet but I have hope….

    “I have owned firearms since a young age, from memory 16, and have used firearms since before that time.

    I have hunted, used them for local pest control and even spent a bit of time target shooting. In all those years, I have never seen an illegal act with or around a firearm and have never seen or been involved with a “firearm safety” issue. My understanding is that all of my friends and associates have had the same experience.

    I have taught all my children firearms safety and one of them has taken up the sport of hunting.

    I have owned what are now regarded as “illegal” weapons in the past but have not for many years but have no issues with those that do anymore than I have an issue with anyone who owns a car that is capable of doing 300 kph… and I know more than a couple that own those.

    To those of you that think the actions taken so far by this government are reasonable I have a warning for you… Your interests may well be next on the list of things that needs to be “re-examined”.

    Look at “moderation” here on Kiwiblog and ask why….. Is it because David got sick of people calling ardern a liar or each other arseholes … or is it a desire to avoid closer inspection and monitoring by those who are committed to stamping out “free speech” that doesn’t fit their “agenda”?

    This is the New Zealand that we currently have and unless something is dome to reassert the rights of all New Zealanders then we are on a sad path to …………….

      Then they came for the Socialists

      Then they came for the trade unionists
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a trade unionist

      Then they came for the Jews
      And I did not speak out
      Because I was not a Jew

      Then they came for me
      And there was no one left

          They are driving the economy into the ground. Both Peters and Ardern are destroying our economy since “capitalism has failed”. While I loathe their goal, they are succeeding at it.

  11. Email from David Seymour:

    ACT New Zealand
    Dear xxx

    Thank you again for supporting ACT’s Freedom to Speak campaign.

    You wouldn’t know it from listening to the media or other politicians, but free speech is still under threat. Just last month, the Justice Minister and I debated the issue on Stuff. He still wants to shut down ‘hate speech’ and he is moving quickly.

    ACT is the only political party standing up for the idea that you should never be punished for expressing an opinion.

    Now we’re taking that message on the road. I’ll be attending a number of public meetings throughout the country in August, September and October and talking to New Zealanders about the importance of free speech and how we can defeat the Government’s plans. You’ll be able to find the dates on Facebook or on our website.

    How you can help

    Organise a public meeting. If you would like me to come to your town and talk about free speech, and you can help with organisation, please email info@act.org.nz.

    Share this email. Send this message on to five of your friends and ask them to sign our petition.

    Support us. If you would like to help us spread the word about free speech on social media and defeat the Government’s hate speech laws, you can do so here.

    Yours sincerely

    David Seymour

        Yesterday I heard Simon on Magic Radio when discussing the possibility of NZ getting a free trade agreement with the USA say that “Jacinda needs to show respect to the USA because it is an elephant and NZ is a mouse.” Another outlet later reported it as Simon saying that the USA was an elephant who won’t be able to get a free trade agreement to fly. Their fake headline was taken down before I could copy it.

    • Linguistic ability is not recognised as a ‘disability’. If it was the PM-Select would be included with her inability to pronounce words with a “t” correctly, instead replacing it with a “d”. Not many seem bothered by her bad pronounciation, infact, it appears to be catching by many lefties in the media.

  12. Simon Bridges on Boris. Seems fair and reasonable.

    “He really knew his stuff and is the right man for the times in Britain because he is more outward looking.They have been through a grim time and he is going to give them more optimism.”

    Johnson’s no-deal position on Brexit would be good for New Zealand because he was outward facing, he said.

    “It means he will be very motivated for a free trade agreement and he has made clear we will be one of, if not the first, off the block.”

    He would be good for New Zealand because he had a real regard for the Commonwealth, Bridges said.”

  16. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

    Steal a fish from one guy and give it to another–and keep doing that on a daily basis–and you’ll make the first guy pissed off, but you’ll make the second guy lazy and dependent on you. Then you can tell the second guy that the first guy is greedy for wanting to keep the fish he caught. Then the second guy will cheer for you to steal more fish. Then you can prohibit anyone from fishing without getting permission from you. Then you can expand the racket, stealing fish from more people and buying the loyalty of others. Then you can get the recipients of the stolen fish to act as your hired thugs. Then you can … well, you know the rest.”
