    • Great article, next step may well be will be a general strike by the public who matters, all truckers. At this stage Ardern is not saying hold my wine but will certainly be watching. The only difference between Canada and New Zealand at the moment appears to be a reluctance by the police to carry out the dirty work.

  1. The Party has announced plans to build a permanent wall around parliament grounds to keep out anyone not approved by Ardern and massively restrict public access.

    It will be a monument to her cruel totalitarian regime.

    • Unfortunately to have an effective election you need a party to vote for and at the moment I can’t find one worth the orange tick. Until there is a “None of the above” option it’s hardly worth voting, and if “None of the above” wins then the country would probably muddle along just fine for the next three years without any further interference from politicians. Maybe, then those standing the next time would put in a bit of effort.

    • Sorry WG but who would you elect at the moment, could we have a NO government parliament? FJA needs to resign, but we have a bunch of deplorables ruling the roost at the moment. Nude Nut is horribly incapable, David Seymour is a total twat Greens are ridiculous communists, Māori Party? Fuck no. Hurry up Matt and get your party going, ask a few ex Act members like Rodney, Steven and the like and Old Nationals who are able to manage the finances to get in there and sort it out. Bloody hell we are in a dilemma.

    • Floyd, i think a few parties will spring up quickly. Problem with that is it splits the vote and is wasted if it dosent hit 5%.

      Theres a new nation party meeting down here next week, im going along but not as support but to tell them ive read through their policy and idealogy and its a retarded waste of time, a protest vote is all theyll get and if a decent other part forms they wont even be a 0.5% party.

      • The MMP problem.
        We only need one new party that encompasses more than a single issue. If they got it right, and could get 10% plus, which is entirely plausible, it could go a long way to stopping the creep of communism in NZ.
        Scary thought I have which is actually possible, is that we could see Labour Luxon sign a coalition agreement with the Labour Party. After everything we’ve seen to date, I wouldn’t rule it out.

  3. Isnt it great watching politicians rack their muppet brains over the “lack of leadership” at the protest yet its one of the most organised and well led one ever.

    Lack of official leaders is a genius move a master stroke infact, it means no one person can dictate terms and conditions during negotiations and screw over the movement, quite simply the govt have to meet the demands of the crowd not what they can bargain with/bribe a select few 🙂

    Jacinda we’re all in this together, you told us too and now your not happy.
    Have you stood at the window next to peeking duck trev and thought “they are us” if not why not? Do you remeber saying “i will govern for all new zealanders”? Well 30-50% of new zealanders are waiting for someone to govern this country properly and not be a tryrranical dictator. Do you remember preaching caring and kindness? So why do you offer nothing but hatred and division.

    Time to step aside and resign jacinda, your a lightweight nobody that got installed by your wef puppetmasters, your true masters are out front on parliaments lawn and its time to pay the piper 🙂

    • I’ve just got back from a short visit to the protest, I’m going back this afternoon to pick up a couple of lovely women that I met there who have driven a long way to be there and bring them home for a hot shower. You’re right IAASB, it is very well organised and well led. Someone was going round picking up rubbish, although his trolley was quite empty as there didn’t seem to be much rubbish anywhere on the ground. Full rubbish bags in one area waiting to be collected, portaloos being emptied as I walked past. People were in the queue for breakfast which they said was free. People were amazing and very friendly. Yes there are a lot of cars and vans etc in Molesworth St and the bus terminal, who cares – there are other ways to get to a destination. I’m tired of the smearing from the politicians re the people there. This is not a situation for the police to handle, it is political and the Government needs to step up and do their job. Although stepping up requires being present for their jobs in Wellington – where are you Jacinda? You made the mess, you clean it up.

  4. For a man who’s supposedly been a “leader” in business and is promoting himself as leadership potential for the country, Christopher Luxon has shown absolutely no leadership or diplomacy ability dealing with the Wellington protest. How can National honestly expect to gain the trust of the public when he is acting as Ardern 2.0?

    • Time we learned that bosses of big companies are invariably bullies.
      That’s how they survive. climbing over others backs and stomping on them.

      There’s no team, just a bullying culture disguised as leadership.
      even Mainfreight have gone that way now. No jab , no job.

      Add to that the Fletchers, The Banks, Fontera, Countdown, Foodstuffs and so on.
      None of them deserve our respect anymore and it shows they never had any respect for either their workers or their customers.
      None of them followed the true science. Had they banded together and done so this whole rort would have fallen over. But no the fell for the one truth which never was.
      No contest of ideas at all.
      Next they will all be donating to the rats that call themselves political parties.

      Disgusting leaders.

      • If they are not bullies, they can be really lazy and just let those under them get on with the job of running the company while they pretend to work. I have seen that in quite a few companies and often successful companies. I think Luxon might fall into that category because he clearly is too lazy to think issues through.

        • A good quote from General Freiherr von Hammerstein-Equor

          “I divide my officers into four classes as follows: The clever, the industrious, the lazy, and the stupid. Each officer always possesses two of these qualities.”

          “Those who are clever and industrious I appoint to the General Staff. Use can under certain circumstances be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy qualifies for the highest leadership posts. He has the requisite nerves and the mental clarity for difficult decisions. But whoever is stupid and industrious must be got rid of, for he is too dangerous.”

      • New Zealand has no military to speak of to enforce totalitarian rule, so how did we get to this?

        We got to this state of virtual dictatorship because somehow the evil cunts managed to coerce almost every major business and financial corporation, social agency and health and education entity into total obedience.

        From the perspective of a rational human being, this has been quite literally amazing to watch. The degradation and destruction of a whole country in the matter of couple of short years has been a feat nothing short of miraculous – and the citizens have been almost totally behind this, cheering the process along and gleefully participating with their masks, their self imposed imprisonments, their ‘testing’ and their destruction of democracy and freedom.

        To those who write off Ardern as incompetent, I say “look at what she has achieved in such a short time. This is not incompetence: it is willful and extremely well carried out destruction.”

      I am told by a politically-neutral person who has met Mr Luxon at Government level (No details), that in their opinion (Which I respect) he is totally, utterly and completely ALL about himself and is an obnoxious individual par excellence.

      Suffice to say that they will not be voting National as long as he is in charge.

    • Mr Crumb, if Luxon is promoting himself as an alternative PM and Leader of the country, he has done an appalling job. Fortunately for him, no voter can vote for him as I am sure he would then see the results of his weak efforts. But Luxon’s mob will come asking for votes next year and in particular my lily livered National MP who now seems to be in hiding.

      It is going to give me great pleasure to be asking the weasel who is the National MP for the electorate in which I reside, why he deserves my vote. The answer is going to have to be most convincing to even get him to get a second question. At the moment, for me there is no one worthy of my miniscule, unimportant, but precious to me, vote.

  6. A woman was very concerned that she had not had a date or any sex in quite some time, so she decided to seek the medical expertise of a sex therapist. Her doctor recommended that she see the well known Chinese sex therapist, Dr Chang.
    So she went to see him. Upon entering the examination room Dr. Chang said, ‘OK take off all your crose.’
    The woman did a s she was told.
    ‘Now get down and craw reery, reery fass to odderside of room.’
    Again the woman did as she was instructed.
    Dr. Chang then said ‘OK, now craw reery, reery fass back to me.’
    So she did.
    Dr.Chang shook his head slowly and said ‘Your probrem vewy bad. You haf Ed Zachary diease.
    Worse case I ever see. Dat why you not haf sex or dates.’
    Worried the woman asked anxiously ‘Oh my god, Dr Chang, what is Ed Zachary Disease ?’
    Dr Chang sighed deeply and replied ‘Ed Zachary Disease is when your face look edzachary like your ass.’….. ed zachary

  7. Wedding venue 20k
    Dress 5k
    Catering 8k

    All your guests are double or triple vaxxed but over 50% now have covid. Priceless 🙂

    True story, a mate attended a wedding last weekend a few have since tested positive (work required testing to return) and most now have symptoms (mild cold) yet no one else is getting tested so they dont become cindys isolation victims. Funny thing is many know what theyve got and still flying all around the country some even attending other weddings this weekend.

    Cindy even half the covid karens dont give a shit esp once they realise what a total joke the coof really is.

          • Yes many supporters of the protest Maori will get us out of this, but on the otherhand it is mainly due to the woke bastards being so frightened to offend Maori that they will not to do anything that causes offence to them. And that is OK, however look at how a Maori himself Brian Tamaki was treated!!! but he is christian kinda, and look at how the Asian population are treated and the European as well. Its very selective if you are Muslim or Maori its cool, and a lesson on wokedom, but if there were no Maori just the rest of the population they would have gone in there and mown the protesters down no worries at all.

    • At least this guy is trying to find independent analysts seeing there seems to be a major connection in the health problem.

      February 17, 2022
      …… if a scientific analysis of the blood clot materials has been done yet. He said he is working on finding someone he can trust to do a fair analysis because the situation has very grave implications and there are many who have the incentive to dismiss it.

      He said he plans to provide samples to more than one analyst “to make sure they all have the same findings.”

      Hirschman also told American Greatness that doctors have told him that the materials look like fibrin, a major component of a blood clot. Fibrin is defined as “a strong insoluble protein produced by the body in response to bleeding.”

      He sent screenshots of texts from several other embalmers who reached out to him after he went public, telling him they’ve been seeing the same things.

      “Thank you for not making me think I am CRAZY!!” one colleague wrote, who went on to describe the clots as “almost alien-like” in appearance. Another embalmer said she has been seeing the same thing and it’s “mind boggling.”

      Another said they have seen a lot of this at their funeral home and “the truth is being stifled and people don’t want to hear the truth.”

      Hirschman told American Greatness that he is afraid of having his reputation destroyed, but …..
      https://amgreatness.com/2022/02/17/funeral-directors-and-embalmers-alarmed-by-weird-freakishly-large-blood-clots-clogging-veins-in-vaccinated-bodies/

      So is the bodies natural body reaction to produce fibrin ties in with like Canadian GP Dr, Hoffe who last year in July was pushing the for the D-dimer blood test, which shows how much minor clotting may be occurring and figuring that among his patients was linked to the vaxxes.
      https://www.aap.com.au/factcheck/no-evidence-to-support-claim-mrna-vaccines-cause-clots/
      Just found many of his links have been taken down, but one can still figure there is a smoldering stinking fire here for whatever reason to do with covid.

  9. ‘I tried to withdraw $20 000 in cash from my bank today. They would only give me half, due to their “reserves being very low”. They were out of $100 dollar bills, gave me $50’s instead. They said the next cash shipment to them was on the 23rd. Later in the day they called me and said the next cash shipment wouldn’t be until March 2nd. I bank at RBC, the biggest bank in Canada. My boss ran into the same thing at TD, another big Canadian bank. The bank staff was very nervous. I was calm and polite since I’m well prepared, but they looked like they had been yelled at a lot in the last couple days since the government started locking down accounts of people who donated to the Freedom Convoy.

  10. Do the protesters in Wellington even know what ‘freedom’ means?
    Jehan Casinader
    When I think about freedom, I remember why my parents moved to New Zealand in the 1980s: To escape a country where bombings and riots were rife, where political opponents “disappeared”, and where journalists were killed in broad daylight.

    I think about the freedoms I’ve enjoyed throughout my life in Aotearoa. I’ve moved cities. I’ve joined groups. I’ve practised faith. I’ve voted in free, fair elections. I’ve relied on the courts to protect me. As a journalist, I’ve challenged politicians on both sides of the House.

    Not once have I been silenced.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/opinion/127815331/do-the-protesters-in-wellington-even-know-what-freedom-means

    No but clearly he means freedom that is granted by the power that is rather than by the common ity.
    The most powerful freedom is that granted by the community.
    As history shows freedom issued under orders is never freedom.

    Scandinavian Archaeology

    The search for the origins of the first humans who arrived in Norway has been an ongoing archaeological debate for decades.
    The oldest skeletal remains discovered in Norway date roughly to 9000 years ago, during the Stone Age. As you might imagine, skeletal remains from this period are rather scarce and very few in numbers, making the study of Norway’s oldest populations difficult.
    However, developments in methodology may elucidate this process. For instance, DNA analysis has made it possible for archaeologists to identify genetic markers that can be tracked to different regions, and this makes it possible for us to go more in-depth in the study of human patterns and where people really came from. How exciting!
    The oldest skeletal remains found in Norway come from three individuals. They were discovered on a small island called Hummervikholmen in Søgne, at the southernmost tip of the Norwegian coastline. This is very close to Denmark and western Sweden, easily accessible by Stone Age watercraft. The skeletons from this site were in a suitable state for DNA-analysis. The results showed ancestry from parts of western and eastern Europe, most likely in two distinct migrations: the earliest from what we now know as France, Spain, and Portugal, infused by a migration from Russia or Ukraine a millennium later.
    While the people of Hummervikholmen lived some 9000 years ago, they were by no means the first arrivals to Norway. The earliest human tools in Norway date back to 11500 years ago—a gap of 2500 years. The question now is whether the toolmakers were the same ancestors of the people from Hummervikholmen, or the remnants of an even earlier migration still. Without any skeletal remains to accompany these tools, it is challenging to argue this point either way. But the question might be further explored by comparing the style and production of the tools to their contemporary counterparts in different areas of Europe.

  17. The Murphys are giving their first dinner party in their posh new house. Once most of the guests have left, Mrs. Murphy asks her neighbour if she did everything correctly.
    “It was perfect,” says the neighbour, “well almost: there were no sugar tongs.”
    “Sugar tongs?”
    “Well,” says the neighbour, “when the men go to the toilet, very few of them wash their hands after handling their you-know-whats, and then they use their fingers to take sugar lumps from the bowl for their coffee. That’s why you need sugar tongs.”
    Mrs. Murphy takes this advice to heart and after her next dinner party she asks her neighbour once again if she did everything correctly.
    “It was perfect again,” says the neighbour, “but why didn’t you follow my advice about the sugar tongs?”
    “I did,” says Mrs. Murphy, “I hung them up right beside the toilet.”

  19. From a Local FB page.

    Well our trip here is coming to an end but I have to say it’s been an amazing and beautiful thing. Every one here from every part of society and walk of life all see what this government is doing and know we stand up now or we just let them take complete control of our lives.
    It poured down last night and as far as I can see not one tent has gone and the crowds are pouring in still. Either our government and jacinda just have no capacity to see why people are traveling from every part of our country paying their way , leaving family and friends, and Most of the people I’ve talked who came for a couple of days have decided to stay, the attitude seems to be “whatever it takes”.
    I leave reluctantly but will be back soon
    More are coming in the next few days, and the government has only two choices, crush the revolt or start listening because this/we will not go away .
    The media also has to start reporting with indifference because to continue to ignore a large cross section of the public will only reduce the trust from the public,
    I’ll say it again, numerous trips to local buisness and the supermarket and not one sign of a abuse from the protesters, in fact, like it always been it is the other way around
    The atmosphere is amazing and has humbled me but also strengthen my belief, Its also changed me in such a way I cannot explain

    But the cynic in me thinks the Party is getting the troops rallied up to be tested hoping for a few positives and the troops will say they have been down mixing with the protestors so then the Govt. can get them all to isolate elsewhere. I would not put it past them to pull a stunt like that.

  24. Bill banning conversion practices ‘simplistic’, an ‘overreach’ – Bridges

    Simon Bridges believes the bill banning conversion practices, which passed its final reading this week, is “simplistic” and “an overreach”.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/02/19/bill-banning-conversion-practices-simplistic-an-overreach-bridges/

    Bridges wants parents to be able to have mature, honest conversations with their children but argues the bill prevents that.

    “Unless you are in the affirmation only category, you can go to jail for up to three years,” he said.

    “I stand by my vote. I do think this is a bill which I say is simplistic and an overreach with complex issues around gender. Parents should be able to be parents.”

    The former Crown Prosecutor said: “I absolutely want people to be able to live the lives the they want, but I also know a law that’s overreach when I see it.”

      • It seems odd that will over 90% of the “eligible” population vaccinated, there are over 2,500 reported cases of COVID-19 in the country today alone.
        Remind me why we got vaccinated? (Obviously the “vaccination” does not sterilize the virus or prevent you from passing it on.)

        If I was feeling like I had a cold, I would lie low at home for a while. No point in going out to pass my bugs on to all the other people nervously waiting in line to be tested…

        • Hmm. Let’s see. If I thought I had caught a cold/omicron would I?

          1) Sit in a car at a testing station so a fat* tester can shove a swab up my nose & into my brain so I can be ordered to go home & wait for the test results then stay isolated for however long they dictate, take panadol, go to bed & wait until an obese tester shoves another swab into my brain then wait five days while they fuck around to give me the all clear.

          OR

          2) Take panadol, go to bed, advise friends & family to stay away for a week then resume normal life.

          Shit. It’s a tough one!

    • Lack of domestic travel sees hospitality in crisis. I’m not surprised.
      So far this year I have cancelled four domestic trips to sporting events I am not allowed to take part in because I am unvaccinated. As well as me losing out on something I very much enjoy sundry motels have missed out on about 16 to 20 nights of my accomodation on the West Coast, Christchurch and Central Otago. Various restaurants and pubs have missed out on the meals and drinks I would have bought for myself, garages on the fuel I would have bought. In total I estimate I have not spent over $5000 in the domestic economy. Not a huge sum of money but with the absence of foreign tourists that money might have been welcomed by the hospitality industry might it not? Next weekend I will be in Christchurch, not in the motel I usually stay at but with an unvaccinated friend (who was fired because of the jab mandate) who has kindly offered to put me up. We will not eat out but at home, I expect it will be very nice.

      • Don’t worry Alice, travel is overrated. Even the free stuff.

        If you live in a small country town you can go into the draw for a free helicopter ride. Its preceded by a circus event with a thing called the Jabberwocky. Tickets are free, and there’s no actual ticket, just a digital number through an injection.

        If you are one of the lucky winners, you get a ride in a helicopter and even a tour of a big hospital, and perhaps a special guided tour of ICU, with lots of Doctors and Nurses fussing over you. I would say “good Doctors and Nurses” but for some reason “good Doctors and Nurses” are leaving for better jobs like unemployment, because they don’t want to join in the circus.

        Anyway the whole fabulous experience is sometimes so powerful it is a heart stopper. For some people the excitement is so great the heart does not restart. At least those lucky people get to die doing something they love – serving St Jacinda.

        For many unable to attend a local circus event, they can watch a similar circus show on TV – the program is called Logan’s Run, and the event is called the carousel.

      • Ditto Alice. Nobody in the hospitality industry seems to have joined the dots that a large chunk of the population have literally disappeared from their establishments. Surely the hospitality industry should be banging on the clown car’s door complaining about the mandates killing off their businesses, but no it seems it’s much easier to ask for taxpayers handouts which don’t cause them any actual work.

  25. Alice, all your emails 👏👏👏 to Seymour must have made him rethink! Act losing votes by the truckload 🧐

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/02/covid-19-chris-hipkins-blasts-act-leader-david-seymour-over-call-to-move-on-from-vaccine-mandates.html
    “If there is little difference in the rates of infection and spread of Omicron between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, then what is the point of segregating them?” Seymour asked.

    “It is time to weigh up the costs that vaccine requirements are placing on individuals, on workplaces, and on social cohesion, and ask whether policies that force vaccination in various settings are still worth it.

    “The case is becoming stronger by the day that they are not as Omicron spreads between vaccinated and unvaccinated in a way it did not do with earlier variants, and policies designed to prevent unvaccinated transmission are no longer worth it. It’s time to move on.”

    “It’s hard to know what ACT is aiming to achieve here,” Hipkins says in a statement.

  26. the evil that is Vance doesn’t miss a beat.

    Andrea Vance is a senior Stuff journalist and a regular opinion writer.

    OPINION: Please don’t let this be our 2016.

    New Zealand always lags behind global political trends. Nearly six years ago, thanks to the populism of former US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the very laws and conventions that underpinned liberal democracy were shaken.

    They fought (and won) elections on a people vs the establishment ticket. Now their people are picking up the pieces. Trump is gone, and Johnson is hanging by a thread. Their societies are fractured and divided.

    Over the past fortnight, it has felt like New Zealand is stumbling blindly down the same path.

  27. Hamilton-Auckland passenger rail service Te Huia continues to use an “extravagant” amount of taxpayer funding to do the job and is not achieving any of the financial environmental goals it was intended to, says a new analysis.

    A report commissioned by the Waikato Chamber of Commerce on the viability of the service, introduced last year with $85.8 million funding from NZ Transport Agency and $12.2m from Waikato local government, concludes if this year continues the trend of modest patronage, the project’s future viability “should come up for extensive debate”.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/report-on-100m-new-te-huia-rail-passenger-service-casts-doubts-on-viability/UNE42SE5Q4E5462TYSV5FKREZY/

    The study, by final year Waikato University school of management student and chamber intern Nicholas Farrell, found that per trip from Hamilton to Auckland, the cost of travelling by diesel vehicle was $48 compared to $294 on Te Huia – made up of a $12 fare and a $282 subsidy. (The $48 was before last month’s fuel price hikes. The study used IRD figures for diesel cost given KiwiRail also uses diesel on the service.)

    Well bugger me we were right as usual.

  28. Man, that was pretty unhinged writing,

    “It is impossible to give a calendar date, but they were never forever.” Well at one time they were actually forever never going to happen.

    (Ardern: “Not only will there be no forced vaccinations but those who chose to opt out, won’t face any penalties at all.”)

  29. FWIW (And because it will no doubt be quickly removed by the recipient), herewith a response to Louise Upston posted-above at 1835.

    Dear Ms Upston:

    All the self-justification in the world WON’T change what we saw last week; that YOU and all your fellow National party MP’s thought so little of the protestors and their demands for FREEDOM (Something you have been known to espouse-about at length), that you ALL conspired with Labour and the greens to create a BINDING AGREEMENT which demanded that the Protestors leave and go way before you would even consider meeting their representatives. You evidently don’t seem to realise that by so-doing, you have BETRAYED the Party, SOLD OUT it’s remaining principles and ARE AS MUCH A SOCIALIST as Ardern, Robertson at al.!! You have BETRAYED your party and ARE NOW PART OF THE PROBLEM!! You have PROVED that you are untrustworthy, and that you’ll quite happily dump any ‘principles’ you might have to cosy up to the socialists, and indeed have managed to DESTROY a once-great political party. You can now apologise and justify your actions as much as you want, but by AGREEING with Ardern, Robertson, et al, You, Chris Luxon and ALL the others have shown what you REALLY think of the average Kiwi and YOU ARE NOW ALL IN THE SAME CAMP. WE (The average Kiwi’s) have very , long memories, and DON’T like being BETRAYED by those we trusted; especially by those we elected to represent us; the ones who IGNORED our pleas to at least go and talk to the protestors. Sadly ma’am, you had your chance (Indeed, many chances) and in your ARROGANCE you blew it. On that basis, and because we now know EXACTLY what you believe, please DON’T play the ‘Woe is Me’ – you let me down’ ‘victim’ card, because you (And all your fellow National Party MP’s) knew EXACTLY what you were doing, and did it ALL BY YOURSELF; Perhaps you need to sign-up for a Labour party membership card’ Your actions have shown that philosophically proven that you are now no different from any of them. Enjoy the last few days in The House; The Farmers, average Kiwi’s and small business -owners you’ve derided and insulted have VERY long memories and your treachery will never be forgotten.

    Thank you.

  30. How’s this for prescience?
    Why Canada Will Become a Dictatorship Under Trudeau
    The leader of that party does what he wants, when he wants, and no one dares question him. Would a Prime Minister Trudeau arbitrarily whip the vote and outlaw certain moral questions? Could Prime Minister Trudeau be trusted to make decisions for the good of the country, not just for his personal self-worth? Would Trudeau call in the police to enforce his vision? Let’s hope we never have the opportunity to ask those questions.
    It’s becoming clearer as the days of Trudeau’s Liberals wear on: if elected Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau would turn Canada into a dictatorship.

    Robert Malone says to check out that date when this was written..

    Thank you for the post.

    This was most interesting:

    ‘Meanwhile, National Māori Authority executive chairman Matthew Tukaki has launched an online counter-protest, encouraging people to use #endtheprotest.

    Tukaki said he had been abused by the protesters in Wellington; he knows a 16-year-old school student who’s been abused; and he had heard from a 21-year-old law student who can’t access his car’.

    I notice that no details are given concerning when the alleged ‘incidents’ occurred, and that no mention is made of contact being made with plod concerning the incidents.

    Very, very, convenient methinks.

    • Interesting. I’ve been pondering on what could happen if the Police Commissioner & the Army hierarchy tell the Mad Queen to get herself out of the mess she has created. If she thought she was losing control would she call in a) the UN or b) Uncle Xi’s army?

      I have no idea whether she still enjoys the unconditional support of NZ’s police & armed forces. It is probably the only thing we have in common.

  32. On the frontlines waiving placards at passing motorists in Silverdale this afternoon. The plan is to continue every day while the Wgton protest is on. Lots more toots and waves than when we first started a couple of weeks ago which is encouraging.
    Still noticing the odd vax injured driver come past though:
    A woman with a deformed hand with the middle finger frozen straight up in the air
    A couple of people had the same problem with their thumbs frozen while pointing down
    A bloke with an uncontrollable shake in his wrist
    A young woman with what must have been tourettes as her head was out the window shouting obscenities’.
    Being the kind and compassionate people that we are we just smiled and waved whilst wishing them a speedy recovery.

    • Me and the family went to a vff protest down here today, similar experience.
      A soyboy with a manbun gave a thumbs down then took off like a bat outa hell, and 2 oldies mask wearing alone together in a campervan thumbs down aswell.
      On the up side hundreds of tooting cars and motorbikes even a cop car made a couple of passes with toots and waves.

      There was a chin nappy wearer walking alone and about 30-40m before he got to the section of road we were based he pulled his mask up then put a cloth mask ontop aswell… definately a dedicated cindy fan and is no way to be considered a southern man!

  33. There was a confrontation between NZ Police and Wellington protesters in the vicinity of Featherston St and Thorndon Quay this evening, as police towed a couple of cars. It looked to be tough going for police and the confrontation did get physical.

    Cars were successfully removed though. Didn’t see any arrests. Some protest organisers trying to keep their side under control, to mixed results.

    • Thanks Viking, as least it is on record. 🙂
      Private : Only members can see who’s in the group and what they post.

      Thanks Bn & protest seems to have lost only 2 cars at this stage.
      Posted above and also dovetails here.

      This seems to be be on dusk this Sunday evening when the police moved.
      Note the number plate is removed off that Tow truck.

      FUBAR nz : @NzFubar
      The police just took it to violence again. …..
      I was strangled and punched in the face. ….

      https://twitter.com/i/status/1495280795862573056
      1 min 29 secs :

      The police “Move Move” clearing a way for a truck.
      The police picking off where they can. … hmmm….

      Others had noticed police seem to be gathering at intersections and corners
      … groups of cops on corners on surrounding blocks. We thought it odd. Never thought to tweet sorry.
      They stopped talking as we passed each group.

      In the comments to note how the police looked at owning any gaps that opened up to then take the opportunity to put in that tow truck.
      to be careful police numbers were increasing they were putting an orange cone and a cop in any spot a car drove away from
      they have obviously spent days planning this
      be cautious they want retaliation
      then they can use brute force ….

      Never trust the cops or whatever Coster says.

  34. Hi pleebs. I realize that it’s past Neve’s bed time story but I’m at my wits end looking for Clarke with an E compared to those common folk without the E.

    Where is he? We baked a cake, pretended to be the “mother” of the nation of 5 million on TV and yet, all our pretentious BS is failing. ClarkE is us and He/them/his/her is up to the nannies skulduggery once again. Is he moving house or what? Daddy, our cop needs reassurance that ClarkE returns the ring because otherwise……..Daddy the Cop will arrest the wilder beast.

    People call me a show pony, I’m a mare figment of woman’s day imagination.

    God damn it. Where is the fish boy and who’s going to supply the fish as I diligently wrap them up.
