  1. Good morning soldiers.
    So that bucket of donkey sweat Gerry Brownlee wants to know who’s funding the protest in Wellington.
    He needs to get his head out of the trough and have a look around.
    More than likely funded by the tax payer .
    The very same tax payer that pay for his cream cakes and doughnuts and not to mention his wages.
    Useless bastard, just another politician passed it’s use by date.
    FTP.

  2. “The protesters are acting ilegaly, there will be no dialogue until they are lawful”…

    From the same pricks that imposed an unlawful lockdown for the first 10 days, it wouldve remained unlawful if they didnt change the rules to suit themselves yet the protesters do not have the luxury of rewriting laws to make themselves lawful.
    Just more “them and us” crap.

    The longer they leave it to negotiate the bigger the list of demands there will be.
    top of that list not far behind removing all mandates i rekon they need to push for legal action against all businesses that introduced self imposed mandates/vax pass when the govt didnt require them to.

    • Being an unvaxxed ive felt like ive been the target of repeated hate speech, insults, threats and treated like a 2nd class citizen from both the media and politicians.

      Is this another “its ok when they do it” type thing?

      I was a lil cunt at school, my teachers and parents would always tell me : “Treat others the way you want to be treated”…

      The govt and media have bullied, threatened, coerced and just straight out blackmailed for 2 years straight. Surely theyre not suprised the same thing is gunna happen to them?
      Lead by example cindy 🙂 youve taught us well.

      • I think the thing that surprises me is do they actually want to be re-elected to parliament? Or is the plan to stop elections altogether? I am starting to believe it is the latter, and this is liarbours plan. We have a despot tyrannical leader of a very diminished country. It will be both here and Canada with Fuck Justin Castro and FJA they are truely the worst of the worst. I thought the Mafia were bad, but the Mafia have nothing on these two and their supporters. Sadly in New Zealand it is all parties. At least the Canadians actually have an opposition, whereas we don’t. I wonder when the National and Act MPs all became members of the Liarbour party? Was it Fauci’s money that turned them?????

    • Politicians and journalists are in a deepening cesspool of liars cheats and attention whores.
      They have created a vortex that is sucking in university lecturers too.
      Are you tired of lecturing students and want a seat on the bench?
      There may have been a time you had to get there on merit – these days it’s whose asshole your nose is up.

    • Hate speech is speech the accusers hate.

      It was slipped into European & British legislations from the 2000’s. It is an insidious power grab by wealthy elitists. It will be written, bound, and ready to pass in the night by Jacinda’s tyrants. They simply feelz “I hate that” hence you should go to jail. It is an effective tactic in the war against Christian populations. An effective opposition should plan to repeal all such hate speech nonsense laws.

      ADL and SPLC boast about how they invented hate speech legislation. It was and is their main weapon to shut down those they hate. And their main target is the American first amendment, and since NZ has been colonized by American culture, the NZ first amendment:

      “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

  4. Ronald Regan once said:

    ‘ Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it, and then hand it to them with the well fought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.’

    • Exactly what Rodney Hyde said the other day. But they never listened dd they Seynour never listened.
      He was to cowardly to fight.
      That’s the new generation.

      Just been reading a collection of stories from the memories of some of our soldiers. It was written in 2000 so was talking to oldies and their recollections of things in war.
      The last one is from a Korean veteran.
      He makes the point about the uselessness of war and wonder what would have happened to the 5000 North Korean and Chinese troops killed in one skirmish.

      They were of course on the side of the communists. Their lives meant nothing to the Communist Leaders.

      Is Cindy the same?
      I reckon so. Told my staff that I thought she would cut their throats quick as look at you. Some thought that was a bit outrageous but history shows me its true.

      the book is called Anzacs by Tony Williams.
      Lots of interesting bits in the stories and having read quits a lot of the war stories over the last few years its easy to pick up the various threads that run through the history.

  5. Bob, Ali G the well known Law Professor states in this crap by RNZ

    “Gillespie said threatening speech is against the law and a crime within the Crimes Act.”

    So his article is about threatening language being naughty but no where does he give an actual example of it being used by any Protester, nor does he give any evidence of just one charge being laid against any Protester for threatening language or speech.

    The man has amply demonstrated that he is a Class 1, Grade A Tosser, who should not be lecturing Law Students.

  6. Lefties used to detest rules and regulation, now we can’t move without their say so.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/02/auckland-school-headmaster-denied-unapproved-type-of-rapid-antigen-test-despite-it-exceeding-ministry-s-standards.html
    Auckland Grammar’s headmaster says it’s ridiculous the school’s been blocked from collecting a shipment of rapid antigen tests that have arrived in the country.

    The type of test isn’t yet approved by the Ministry of Health – but is widely available in Australia with an accuracy assessment of 90 percent.

    Auckland Grammar Headmaster Tim O’Connor is incensed. He managed to get 2000 rapid antigen tests from Australia into the country.

    “Look it just seems ridiculous when we’re actually trying to assist in the health and safety of people we care for, and we can’t do it,” O’Connor says.

  8. Two extracts for the editorial in this weeks NZCPR. The whole issue is well worth a read, (subscribe) but these two items show a different perspective to that we are bing indoctrinated with.

    1) Climate change
    This week’s NZCPR Guest Commentator Richard Reaney, an Otago University graduate who has studied Climate and Paleoclimatology for over 40 years including being awarded a Cambridge University Visiting Scholarship to Scott Polar Research Institute in 2005, puts all of this into perspective, in his excellent analysis of the reality of climate change, when he says:
    “The eruption of the Tongan volcano in the Pacific on 14th January was likely the biggest recorded anywhere on the planet in more than 30 years, according to expert volcanologist, Shane Cronin. It is said to have put up over 3.2 million tons of CO2 in the 10 days since the eruption began. This equates to over 116.0 million tons per annum if emissions continue at the same level.
    “This by way of comparison is more than New Zealand has ever put up. This level totally makes farcical any measures by NZ to control or reduce emissions. In fact it highlights that it is Nature and Natural Processes that control climate, not Mankind.”

    And that is the point. With 97 percent of all greenhouse gases produced by natural processes, and only 3 percent by mankind, those political leaders who are trying to claim that driving your car, cooking on a gas barbeque, or using a coal-fired boiler will tip the planet into some sort of global warming apocalypse, are delusional. Carbon dioxide is necessary for life on earth. It’s if carbon dioxide levels get too low to sustain plant photosynthesis that we all need to panic!

    2) The Emission Trading Scheme – so this is why petrol is rising so quickly?
    When the Emissions Trading Scheme was first introduced, Westpac warned the inflationary impact of a carbon tax would become a major headache for the Reserve Bank: “Westpac suggested higher electricity and petrol prices will add between 0.3 and 1 percentage point per annum to the consumer price index over the next three years… A carbon price of $15/tonne would lift petrol prices by 10 percent and residential power bills by 7 percent, while $50/tonne would make petrol prices jump 16 percent and electricity by 20 percent.”

    As well as higher power and petrol prices putting pressure on inflation, Westpac noted other risks include higher oil prices, greater fiscal stimulus, a tighter labour market, and persistently high food prices. We are now experiencing all of these, with the fiscal stimulus associated with the Ardern Government’s reckless $70 billion in Covid spending resulting in a massive blowout of debt from $55.7 billion at the end of June 2019, to a peak of $165.5 billion in 2024.

    Inflation has now increased to 5.9 percent, and interest rates are on the rise.

  9. An update on my 75 y.o. friend who went to Hospital last Friday ICU after being quite ill for 2 weeks – after his 3rd booster shot. Still in ICU at Timaru, under the care of a Christchurch Heart Specialist who now after a week has said if there is no improvement will be taken to Christchurch in 10 days time. He cannot walk and support himself at present.
    Did forget to mention his wife who also was not well after her booster. She used to walk her little dog at least twice around at a local park most days, now she can hardly go anywhere and had to be taken by wheelchair into hospital to visit her husband. The Doctor has stated she has COPD, a condition involving constriction of the airways and difficulty or discomfort in breathing, sure came on very fast.
    One would wonder whether the Doctor is having any thought about Vaccine Injuries?

      • The vaccinated have AIDS. Not HIV induced AIDS but AIDS nonetheless.
        https://rumble.com/vv7qnk-dr.-zelenko-the-vaccinated-have-aids.html?mref=lzerp&mc=3ifeq

        Dr. Zelenko does not mince words and he just came right out and said it on Clay Clarke’s show: yes, the vaccinated have AIDS.
        Not HIV-produced AIDS, but make no mistake they have AIDS.
        AIDS = Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
        And that’s exactly what is happening.
        Their bodies are losing all ability to defend themselves. That’s what immuno-deficiency means.

        Q: Do you believe there will be more COVID variants?
        “COVID-19, which is a virus, has several reasons why variants developed. First is that every virus develops mutations — it gives them survival benefits. So it’s natural for some variants to arise that way.
        Then, according to world experts like Dr. Luc Montagnier, who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering HIV. And Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, who is the world’s most published immunologist and Dr. Geert Van Den Bosch from the Netherlands, one of the world experts in immunology. They all said the following: If you vaccinate people during an active pandemic, you are causing evolutionary pressure to make more dangerous variants.
        And the third possibility, even though I don’t have proof for it, but it is a logical deduction: Since we know that COVID-19 is a manmade bioweapon — so the same people that created the initial weapon could create the variants, as well.”

  10. America’s Ruling Regime Doesn’t Fear Disinformation. It Fears Truth

    This is because our ruling class—in the name of “defending democracy”—classifies those who question the regime on any matter of consequence as a threat to the homeland, and pledges to pursue them accordingly.

    Our ruling elites have engaged in an overt war on wrongthink masquerading as a domestic counter-terror mission since at least January 6, 2021.

    • Kea, I think you misread all this.
      People are selling not because of interest rates. They will stabilize as they always doand many are on fixed interest for the medium term.
      People are selling for two main reasons. Loss of jobs and therefore income and because of the uncertainty of what the birch will do next to confiscate their rights especially as a landlord , and before you rant about them there are laws in place that landlords and tenants are bound by. standards that landlords must now meet. all at the expense of the tremters.
      why would people bother?
      Its known as unintended consequences.
      Of course many won’t sell and will be withdrawn. I have people in mposy days now saying they are selling. The reality is that unless someone had a decent deposit the house won’t eel
      Now most of these people don’t have to sell but are doing so because they see a bteer return with less hassle elsewhere or if they are older just putting the money in the bank,
      It will only be a problem is this goes on for 2 – 3 years but the job situation isn’t ging to last that long. That’s where the major pressure always comes from Lack of income.
      The banks have been backing off this now since the middle of last year so they have already derisked a lot of their possibles.

      While our export prices stay high and our exports roll out there’s money in the system. If or when that changes then we need to be wary. We don’t have to buy new cars and as the WGTN camp shows kiwi’s can help others.

      We have been through this all before.

I find it rather amusing its like instant karma when theyre going on about jab crap and that happens, the comedian aswel was another instant karma moment.

  13. Autopsies Show: Vaccinating Teens for COVID Is Literally ‘Heartbreaking’

    Pathologists who examined the autopsies of two teenage boys who died days after receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine concluded the vaccine caused the teens’ deaths.

    The three pathologists, two of whom are medical examiners, published their findings Feb. 14 in an early online release article, “Autopsy Histopathologic Cardiac Findings in Two Adolescents Following the Second COVID-19 Vaccine Dose,” in the Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

    The authors’ findings were conclusive. Two teenage boys were pronounced dead in their homes three and four days after receiving the second Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 dose.

  14. Hilarious, stuffed reporting an escaped prisoner is heading to a protest that is currently consuming a large chunk of police personel…

    “Escaped prisoner may be heading to protest
    Police are still hunting a prisoner who fled Rimutaka Prison on Friday in a stolen van, who they believe could be headed for the protest.

    It’s understood the man, John Douglas Willis, also known as John Damon Exley or Damon John Exley, escaped in a vehicle from the prison.

    Police believe Willis, who is in his early 50s, may be trying to reach the growing anti-mandate protest at Parliament.
    Willis has more than 240 previous convictions, with a criminal history that includes indecent assault, assault with intent to commit rape, theft, fraud and escaping from custody.
    It’s understood he has several convictions for escaping custody.”

  15. Home owners are pleased to enjoy rising interest rates. The only people who not so pleased are debt owners.

    No interest is charged on homes. It’s charged on debt. Many people own a debt and the bank owns them and their pile of gib and sticks. The losers will spend their life in crippling debt and servitude to the bank. All because of a narcissistic need to keep up with the Jones’s.

    It won’t be long before we are reading daily stories about indebted Ponzi schemers not being able to feed the CHILDREN. Along with cries for the government to “do something”. These parasites will demand tax payer money to bail them out of their failed investment in a scam.

    Wankers.

  16. Aucklanders are being warned they could wait up to five days to get their Covid test results back, sparking concern at how long people will need to isolate even if they don’t have the virus.

          I cannot for the life of me understand why any perfectly healthy person would troop off to have a probe stuck up their nose because they might have been near somebody else who did the same thing a couple of days ago.

          These idiotic drones must be seriously mentally/morally defective. Surely people must see this? Don’t they realise that they can be locked out of work and forced out of society for up to three weeks on the whim of whoever is manipulating these ‘tests’?

            And they’re going to have to drag me in for the fucking booster.

            Remember this, Cindy you fucking cow?

            On Tuesday [22 September 2020] Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern went a step further, saying not only will there be no forced vaccinations, but those who choose to opt-out won’t face any penalties at all. “No, and we haven’t for any vaccination in New Zealand applied penalties in that way,” Ardern told The AM Show, after being asked if there might be tax penalties or other sanctions for refusing a COVID-19 vaccine. “But I would say for anyone who doesn’t take up an effective and tested and safe vaccine when it’s available, that will come at a risk to them.”

  17. A man enters a confessional and says to the Irish Priest:
    “Father, it has been one month since my last confession. I’ve had sex with Fannie Green every week for the last month.”
    The priest tells the sinner: “You are forgiven. Go out and say three Hail Mary’s’.”
    Soon, another man enters the confessional. “Father, it has been two months since my last confession. I have had sex with Fannie Green twice a week for the last two months.”
    This time the priest asks: “Who is this Fannie Green?”
    “A new woman in the neighbourhood,” the sinner replies.
    “Very well,” says the priest. “Go and say ten ‘Hail Mary’s’.”
    The next morning in church, the priest is preparing to deliver his sermon when a gorgeous, tall woman enters the church. All the mens’ eyes fall upon her as she slowly sashays up the aisle and sits down in front of the Altar. Her dress is green and very short, with matching shiny emerald green shoes.
    The priest and altar boy gasp as the woman sits down with her legs slightly spread apart, Sharon Stone-style. The priest turns to the altar boy and whisperingly asks:

    “Is that Fannie Green?”

    The altar boy replies: “No Father, I think its just the reflection off her shoes”.

    • Little Johnny goes to confession…..

      “Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl.”
      The priest asks, “Is that you, little Johnny Pagano?”
      “Yes, Father, it is.”
      “And who was the girl you were with?”
      “I can’t tell you, Father. I don’t want to ruin her reputation.”
      “Well, Johnny, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?”
      “I cannot say.”
      “Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?”
      “I’ll never tell.”
      “Was it Nina Capelli?”
      “I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.”
      “Was it Cathy Piriano?”
      “My lips are sealed.”
      “Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?”
      “Please, Father! I cannot tell you.”
      The priest sighs in frustration. “You’re very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you’ve sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.”
      Johnny walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, “Well what’d you get?”
      Johnny says “Four months vacation and five good leads…”

    • If it hits 3k ill ditch my job and go gamble my luck in the hills again!
      It dosent take much of a daily tally to shit over wages but probs is its hard to be consistent. Just today on my snap chat memories is vids from 19 feb 2019… huge haul of gold including a 12 gram and 5gram nugget, pulled out over 2 oz of gold the first 20mins that day then another oz over the rest of the week before regular rain/floods forced me out for the season.
      The following summer i quit work and went bush for summer… 2oz in 3 months 🙁 floods, summer snow and patchy gold kicked my arse but still one of the most awsome adventures of my life.

      Silver is the one to watch and the most potential. Eg last recession it went from around $14 up to a bit over $60 in a short period of time, Over 400% vs golds 60% increase. Plus the gold/silver ratio is waaaay out of whack mainly due to manupulation in the futures markets.

      I still trust shiney metals far more then any stupid fiat paper/digital currency, just be sure to have it in physical form and not paper gold/silver.

        If only!! Being near a quartz area (The Coromandel’s) ,and with DoC (and their mates, the gweens) fanatically-determined that NO prospecting (or, horror of horrors actual-MINING) will take place (Although $10,000 MIGHT get the ‘Minister’s’ permission ‘to simply just have a look; should he / she eventually deign to consider such a minor matter), when combined with the necessary backhanders to councils, iwi, Uncle Tom Cobbly and All, does tend to make things somewhat difficult for us in the North. None of this pan, pick and tent for those of us so-inclined unfortunately.!! As I said, ‘If only’.

          I find it cheaper to just work a well paying job and buy precious metals now but it sure as hell isnt as fun or adventurous. Who else starts their workday in a wetsuit canyoning for 20mins 🙂

          • If you know where to go, and aren’t frightened of a short handled shovel, the public fossicking areas can pay. Such as the Arrow. Just sluicing. Sluice box costs $200 & shovel is priceless. $50 per hour on average. Down to $20 per hour and upto $100 per hour. 5-6 hours and I was toast, shovelling wet rock, upto your waist, freezing water. Better than many jobs though.

            • Ive had sluices, dredges, highbankers and metal detectors. Dredge is the most productive but i enjoyed the high banker the most, shovel n pickaxe and alot of sweat! Amazing how much dirt you can move in a few hours, years ago i used to go tinker with it just below clyde most evenings after tea and would get 2-3grams before dark gold was 1900nz an oz then so a good wee hobby to have. Im gutted i was always broke back then and sold my gold as quick as i found it, its not the same when you buy someone elses gold.

            It’s probably a lot safer than trying to retimber an old stope or even collecting specimens in 100 year old workings, while simultaneously trying to monitor a gas detector (And praying that it doesn’t go off; H2S can be very lethal – as any long-term resident of Rotorua will well know).

            Hopefully your endeavours are well-rewarded.

            • So long as the canary sings you’ll be fine. Following quartz riders with hand held rock drills and scrapers can be rewarding. But the mechanisation, cables, fans, cement burns, government dorks and cyanide turn it into a bit of a drag. A pan full of gold at the end of a long summer day spent in crystal clear cold water is better. And the beer tastes better somehow as you boil your winnings and weigh it.

      • Spot on IAASB. Went silver a few years back. Will hopefully get much better return than if I’d spent the same amount on gold. Watching and waiting.
        Like everything else though, trying to sell before it’s too expensive for people to buy will be the trick!
        Your mining and fossicking adventures sound awesome!

          No problem with the ‘purchasing of silver’, it’s the USING of it that is problematical since you can’t now front-up to a bank teller and say ‘Please can you take half an ounce off that bar and give me the cash-equivalent’; they don’t have either a clue what you are talking about nor the facilities to action your request. There are, of course, no ‘metal dealers’ outside the larger cities. Retailers, of course, are even worse as they would have absolutely no idea where to start and the average checkout girl would treat a ‘silver’ coin as being no different to any other ‘silver’ coin she receives, irrespective of what ‘actual’ value (or weight) it might be.

          Very frustrating….!

  18. Sundance at The Conservative Tree House nails it as usual..
    “Those who do not adhere to the insane ideological goals of the far left, are viewed as the problem that must be overcome. The leftist emotional attachment to ideology is why these avowed and ideological followers cannot be redeemed or coerced into reasonable positions with any logical argument. Instead, it is you who must be re-educated to see their worth, to value their ideology. You, the person or group who stands in their way, will always be viewed as the problem.”

    • Sundance is good in explaining at a deeper level of what many of us innately know.
      .
      ….. Whenever we allow any entity, group, or collective echo-chamber to change the terminology, we are making a big mistake.
      .
      Orwell wrote about the outcome in his book 1984, where
      The Ministry of Peace is established to create war;
      the Ministry of Truth is established to create lies and propaganda;
      the Ministry of Love established to justify torture and beatings; and
      the Ministry of Plenty to control food production leading to starvation. …..
      .
      ….. In order to advance severe ideological positions, they must pretend not to know things.
      Ignoring contradictions is a feature of modern leftism, not a flaw.
      .
      Denial of truth allows easier trespass. ….
      .
      …. lost all reference for what “liberty and freedom” actually mean. ….
      .
      ….. The need for control is a reaction to fear. ….
      .
      …. You cannot comply your way out of tyranny …..

      .
      Worth the read as Sundance gives great context and more to these snippets, memes. 🙂

  19. Bill Gates thinks it is sad that the Omicron variant is providing better protection than the vaccines. Having Omicron and recovering, which the vast majority of people do, also has the distinct advantage of not leading to (V)AIDS like the so called vaccines.

    Bill Gates: “Sadly the virus itself – particularly the variant called Omicron – is a type of vaccine, creates both B cell and T cell immunity and it’s done a better job of getting out to the world population than we have with vaccines.”

  20. Down earlier dropping off one of our protestor “guests”. Huge crowd down there today. Obviously a lot trying to offer support over the weekend. They have built a stage on the steps that leads onto the grassed area for their concert tonight. So those people who missed out on the summer festivals due to cancelation will get a bit back.

    How is this for craziness. We called in at the supermarket which has a underground car park. The guy in the car next to us comes out of the supermarket with his mask on, takes it off as he unloads his trolley into the car, then gets into the car and puts his mask on again before he drives away (he was by himself). These people are hypnotized.

      It’s head shaking stuff alright.
      They must go into a state of delirium when an unmasked person approaches them.

      40+ years ago, a mate who had been a mechanic gave me run down on the character and personalities traits of people, based purely on the make of car they drove. He had those car owners down to a tee.

      I am finding that I am developing a similar expertise in analysing personality types based on mask wearing, QR scanning, and a blind willingness to have an untried, unknown substance injected in to them.

      A person with an interest in human psychology must be loving all this free field work in observing the behaviour of these covidians.

  21. One of the good Guys.

    Former MP who led the fight against inflation
    Peter Neilson: politician; b July 12, 1954, Birmingham, England; d February 9, 2022

    In the 1970s and 1980s inflation of 18 per cent plus per year was common. Inflation robs the pay packets and benefits of the poor and increases the value of the assets of the rich. Ronald Reagan tried to beat it; Margaret Thatcher too.

    However, the person who tamed inflation was a Kiwi, not a gold medal winner, in rowing or athletics, but a quiet, bookish minister in the Fourth Labour Government, Peter Neilson.

    Neilson, who died aged 67 on February 9, was the MP for the Wellington electorate of Miramar from 1981 to 1990 and during his parliamentary career served as minister of revenue, customs, works and development, and associate minister for state-owned enterprises.

    “The Christchurch rally continues to grow with over 1000 people. Amid chants for freedom protesters on horses have arrived.
    A policeman can be seen taking photos. Another unmasked policeman was seen at the protest hugging protesters without a mask on.
    Stuff asked the police officer about the hug. He said it was a mistake.”

    • There are a few good ones ROL. The ones in the links below have probably damaged their career prospects. The key is to get the cops on our side.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voaHbJVHJNk
      I watched closely when the cops tried to clear the protestors and it was obvious some NZ cops were spoiling for a fight (complete arseholes) and there were others that did not actively participate and seemed not to want to be there,

      • Yes I know, There are good ones and that is the frustration. However, just as not all the Wermacht were Nazis and not all committed atrocities, most allowed them to happen and they were thus tainted buy association. Good cops need to break ranks and speak up now and hold the thugs to account. Doing nothing is not good enough.

        • Looking at the preview for tomorrows Q+A it looks like Coster has come to his senses and told cindy its not their job to beat up ordinary Kiwi’s going about their lives.
          One suspects his staff have told him they can’t wineither now or in the long term if they behave badly/
          Bill English for a long time said that putting people in jail is a social failure and that’s just so true for many. Some of course there is no other choice but most are there because theylearnt to live badly. The police in the BOP have a program addressing that and seem to be having some good results.
          Cindy would just fuck all that up.
          apart from that I suspect they have lost so many staff and have so many more being quarantined that they could mount even a descent flood rescue if they had to. They are their and operate by the consent of the public. Thje Red squad proved that once that was lost then life for cops became very difficult.

    It would make great footage to stream around the world. I suspect the strong Māori presence is what’s held the hideous bitch back.

  27. Interesting electrical car burn outs:—- Hat tip;– Master Mariner on KB.

    …. Lithium-ion batteries in the electric cars on board the vehicle carrier Felicity Ace have caught fire and the blaze requires specialist equipment to extinguish, captain Joao Mendes Cabecas of the port of Hortas said.

    It was not clear whether the batteries first sparked the fire.

    “The ship is burning from one end to the other… everything is on fire about five meters above the water line,” Cabecas said. ….
    https://gcaptain.com/felicity-ace-car-carrier-continues-to-burn-in-mid-atlantic/

    Nothing mentioned about ev, but what do you think., Flaming hot for real.

    ….. “The worst thing is the cars in the garage are glued next to each other, there is no escape route,” ….
    ….. carried 153 vehicles, many of them trucks, …..
    ….. “The fire was so big and fast that in a matter of five minutes it became unmanageable for the people aboard.” ….

    https://gcaptain.com/flames-engulf-grimaldi-ferry-euroferry-olympia/

    Just wait until we have the electric trucks, or hydrogen powered trucks and vehicles?
    So will the government tell the Insurers to redistribute the increased premiums onto ICE vehicles?

    ….. emerging risks is in the carriage of electric vehicles (EV) onboard roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) vessels in particular. ….
    …. “In the event of a lithium ion battery catching fire, it is important to note that such a fire reaches very high temperatures, produces toxic gases and is inextinguishable.” …..

    https://gcaptain.com/electric-vehicles-and-maritime-transportation-fire-hazards-identified/

    Run a way thermal heat.
    A car lithium battery having enough energy to evaporate a tonne of water.
    and the electric truck battery?? …..

    On a precautionary principle, 🙂 should an electric vehicle even be allowed on a Cook Strait Ferry?
    Should an electric vehicle even be allowed with in a proscribed distance of a conventional fuel station? 🙂

    • It will be a steep & costly learning curve, and the worst part is because of being on the governmental behest, so that will twist and screw whatever really happens.

      I know that years ago, in the days of steam boilers blew up, accidents happened.
      Just as petroleum products had their moments, car fuel tanks like the Ford Pinto, but the market, and in those days it was a more open government investigation to get things sorted. Insurers, liabilities to be figured in.

      It is the governmental systemic cover-ups, that will become dangerous, as they play God in granting indemnities etc,.. then use the for the “common good”.

      How much water to put out a “boat fire”? or as Sooty says, sink it, and evaporate how many tonnes of water, to cause climatically torrential toxic rains.
      Would that be getting like a Tongan volcano 🙂
      Poor greens. what about all the fishes swimming in that heated toxic waters?

    • Fe batteries don’t have the zing of Lithium, but you can spear them with a crowbar and they won’t burn. I had a cheap Chinese lithium rechargeable torch battery that ignited on charging, thankfully it was a noisy process. I remember seeing a spiral LED fluoro catch fire as I watched it spit and spurt. The tech will eclipse the burny fear mongering. Think computer chip prices dropping. Dodgy Chinee though. That’s a given.

        • I guess that a steel or aluminium mast would act as an aerial to earth at sea.
          Florida way, where storms are regular in the afternoon, about 1 boats in a thousand is struck.

          In a house I know even phone lines have burnt out the phones.
          Also the surge in power lines burn out appliances, bad enough that some rewiring had to be done.

          The magnetic field as knowing how the electric fence hot wire can induce current in an adjoining, but not connected wire.
          Lightning strikes are many times inducing and to a remarkable voltage to upset the electronics.

          That is the right approach for Yachties and boaties, Microwaves are good, umplugged helps as also the the oven, and possibly the fridge.
          So stow the lap tops, cell phones etc away in the “Faraday Cage”
          Bear in mind today’s electronic car keys, 🙂
          Credit and eft pos cards with those magnetic strips?
          Tin foil also helps,, 🙂
          Make sure that the lighter does not self light the oven, and remember pre-heated laptop lithium battery fires are very runaway thermal deep heaters,

          I really do not know how fool proof the car is though.

          • I missed putting this link in.

            The good news was that time after time, anything they’d put in their oven or microwave was okay.
            I’ll keep the explanation simple, primarily because I’m not enough of a physicist to fully understand it.
            Basically the oven/microwave acts as a Farraday cage — or a full metal box — and when lightning hits it, just flows over the outside without disturbing anything inside.

            https://theboatgalley.com/oven/

            And a list of things to put into the “oven”,

            For me the micro wave is set up to be safe and proven to contain the flinging around of microwaves.

        • Nasska, some 8 years ago, around New Year, my wife and I were camping on a riverbank in outback Queensland. There was a large electrical storm that came through. It was early evening. Two Geezers were fishing during this storm, not too far away and got fried and died when lighting was conducted through their carbon fibre fishing rods.
          I now make sure that I do not have my carbon fibre rods anywhere near me when fishing if or the threat of any lightening is about.

  28. The protest organisers put out a call for a tent(s) for a few homeless guys. The homeless shelter in Taranki St has been closed (possibily temporarily because of the Covid BS ). Apparently they have said they can join the crowd as long as there is no drinking on the site.
    Thats how you be kind Ardern !!

  29. From saint to sinner
    Joanna Grochowicz

    Largely Covid-free, New Zealand has been viewed as a paradise for much of the last two years. Jacinda Ardern, already considered by many the Mother Teresa of the Antipodes, excelled in the early stages, acting decisively and with compassion.

    Appealing to the population to act as one, her “Team of Five Million” approach did wonders for national unity at a time when most other leaders were floundering and failing. No wonder I voted for her – twice.

    But times have changed. Once saintly, Jacinda now appears merely silly, having led New Zealand to a place that looks more like a smug cul-de-sac than a nation wholly reliant on overseas tourism and trade. Then again, long-term strategic thinking was never a feature of her government’s Covid response, with “elimination” taking precedence over vaccination for much of 2021.
