  1. Oh such joy I just heard the 757 fly back into the Country so at last we have our all enveloping warm kind security blanket firmly wrapped around us again, all hail the little piglet, or is it just here because she has flown home for the weekend from Wellington with her spawn and He slave.
    I wonder how bad it is for the people of other countries who don’t have the warmth and kindness that we are so lucky to have with our great leader and her government??
    BTW isn’t it only a few days and she’s off again to the USA and Europe ??

  2. Went up to Christchurch yesterday for the day – am convinced the mask mandate could be lifted tomorrow and most people would leave them on. Think I only saw one other person without a mask.
    Went to a speciality shop I needed – had a mask compulsory, as we are fully vaccinated and some of our staff have caught covid so need to protect ourselves. I did not bother to point out the obvious of vaccinated and mask wearing and catching covid.
    Watched people getting masked up in cars in order to walk through car park to shops and most did not remove walking back out. Saw pedestrians everywhere with masks on.
    Stopped at KFC Ashburton for tea – people inside sitting down would put mask on to go 6/8 metres to drink dispenser and then they would put mask on to get up and leave walking a few metres to go outside.

  3. ANZAC Day for New Zealanders to remember those who fought against totalitarian, authoritarian regimes.
    If you attend an event, don’t forget your masks, sign ins, and social distancing, as you have been instructed.

    • I gave “them” a real rip on the F/B announcement that the RSA would not be holding a public service and that the Dawn Service would be by invite only. Softcocks was a mild apt descriptive.
      Pleased to not that yesterday the decision was reversed, would like to think I can claim some credit for that.

    • OS, your sarc notification is not necessary for here in the King Country, in the Taumarunui Bulletin dated 22nd April, the Taumarunui RSA are advertising the respective Services for ANZAC Day at Taumarunui, Ohakune and Raetihi.

      I quote from the advertisement:

      Please not the following:
      Masks must be worn.
      Adhere to social distancing requirements.

      I used to be a regular at the Taumarunui RSA, but quite frankly the Manager is one of Gods most useless pricks and with his attitude, I now know why I have not entered the RSA for coming up 3 years.

      This weak, limp wristed attitude of surrender, is not what my Old Man fought for and I can see also why he seldom ever went into an RSA. I shall be commemorating my father and relatives who served this country in my own way tomorrow.

      • It’s the irony that surprises me.

        How a nation whose ancestors fought against tyranny can so prostrate itself to a very similar kind of tyranny.
        – Do as you are told!
        – Trust the State!
        – Your loss of freedom is for the greater good. The ends justify the means!
        – Obey!
        – Report rule-breakers!

        Lest we forget (more now than ever before…)

    • dl cancelled Anzac commemorations as she is aware NZers take time to reflect and talk about our brave men and their past war against tyranny. Now those kiwis will make valid comparisons between HitIer’s regime and our current regime. Divide and rule.

  4. The crash last year in timaru that killed 5 teens had the driver getting slammed and rightly so, the crash 2 days ago in invercargill that killed 4 teens not so much… is it because the driver died or because they were maori?
    Both made tradgic mistakes and its clear in both accidents the driver was at fault so you woukd think theyd both recieve the same criticism by media and community?

    • I dont think so revvy, i didnt raise this to be a dick about maori blaming whitey for everything but because i genuinely question the difference in reaction and reporting.
      Id understand if its out of respect for the driver that died but sadly i dont think thats the reason, this crash as pointed out yesterday has been treated with secrecy and very vague details, the timaru crash the driver and victims were already named by now along with the reason for the crash.

        • That could be one of the reasons for the delay in the police releasing information about the crash.
          – The vehicle (especially if late-model) could have been stolen, and the police needed time to check
          – The police would have assumed gang (prospect) involvement, and would have needed time to check
          – The dead did not carry IDs (such as driver’s licenses) and so time was needed to identify them
          – The police would need to check with Wellington about how to word the press releases to keep within official guidelines regarding special people
          All four (at least the first 3) victims suffered from Funny-name Syndrome:
          – Konnor
          – Indaka
          – Kyah, and
          – O Maruhuatau (may be a legitimate ethnic name)

    • What medicine do those *(^## Doctors practice?

      It seems to be the new normal, like climate change is causing heart attacks. ….. yeah right ….

      …. Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease that occurs when your body makes antibodies against your liver tissue. …..
      Autoimmune conditions are known to be associated with both Covid-19 viral infection and Covid-19 vaccination. …..
      .
      ….. No investigation of Covid-19 vaccination as a possible complicating factor in the development of the new form of hepatitis has yet taken place, but it’s the very first place they should be looking. ….
      .
      …… But as we all know assumptions make an ass out of u and me, and Pfizer’s own study shows this is not the case and that spike proteins circulate in the body following mRNA Covid-19 vaccination, and the highest concentration ends up in the liver. …..

      Do not be surprised if the borders are closed again to keep the new hepatitis variant out. … yeah right ….

      Would emergency climate change lock down also help in the cure of hepatitis if that variant breaks out in New Zealand.? 🙁

    And will he get an honorary Knighthood and become Sir Snout in The Trough or whatever they hand out in woke US Universities?.

  7. If you think any changes will come about with any consultation process this Government runs on 3 Waters, Maori Co-Governance, Maori Health, anything.

    Just think again.

    This from Robertson today where it is clear this Government has absolutely no intention of listening to you, the Taxpayer and the voter of this country and any consultation process is just a sham.

    Quote
    While he says that it is important to listen to concerns over governance, ultimately, the changes will go through. “The overall reforms are essential not only from an infrastructure perspective, but from a health one as well.”

  8. Good morning all, jabbed or not. An update of other news, I see and heard from the UK Tyson Fury had another win this morning. Thanking his lord and saviour Jesus Christ again, again, again, the Gypsy king always thanks him/her after his fights. I am not really into boxing however my English grandsons are, and they had great seats to watch the fight. Sadly for Dillion ? the Gypsy King won again, and 50 million pounds for the fight, they were very disappointed this time as they are big supporters of Dillion ? and boxers themselves. Great that Tyson thanked his supporters for their incredible support 97,000 or so of them, and said he loved his country England. So my thought for the day….. How many of us could possibly say that after the destruction bought about by this liebour government of the last 5 years. Every day in every way I hope she will high tail it out of here and go work for Klaus Schwab this bot would suit her/him. Lying bitch that she is. FFFFFJA Have a great day one and all.

    • DL assistant to Swabb’s at the WEF, purrfect! Her uniform can be that awful leather ensemble she wore on stage as leader of the Communist Youth. It would perfectly match Swabb’s weird futuristic jacket and evil overlord, ruler of the world persona he portrays. DL can stand around calling everyone comrade and hand Swabb the hairless cat for him to stroke. She will be in charge of keeping Klaus’ favourite pussy alive, just as she did with Paddles… 😾. Successful at everything she touches.

  9. Noting where the change in culture, is now dragging the issues kicking & screaming into politics in the USA.

    Slip-Slidin’ Away: The Progressive Left Now Gets Thrashed on Every Issue, Everywhere
    https://youtu.be/93VL7hf6Yq8
    18 mins 55 secs : Apr 23, 2022 : Bill Whittle

    In a verbal barrage that chronicles the failure of the Progressive Left, Bill Whittle illustrates how they now lose on every issue, everywhere, all the time. Meanwhile, real America rises.

    Using covet operations to bring an agenda is now exposed.
    Critical Race Theory is being challenged by many in a wide spread manner.
    The “grooming” of children is at all levels is now being talked about & well challenged.

    H. Clinton, Russian collusion, Hunting Laptop issues, Voting issues will not go away, and the pressures from it will not go away.
    President & Vice, Speaker, Leader, Democrat Party are a laughing stock.
    Putin inflation, Covid, Ukraine*, being seen through.
    2nd amendment more valued.
    Shanghai is showing the Chinese, just what their Government is doing, as their quality of life overall has improved, but now, will they figure & tolerate the CCP, Xi government.
    Elon Musk, can spend enough money to buy “free speech” is unsettling the controllers.
    CNN+ premium: only 10,000 subscribers, only 1% joined of their targeted advertising.

    Politics is downstream of Popular Culture.
    The politics takes time, like a 2 year & 4 year cycle to show.
    Popular culture, we make daily decisions, like what movie to watch or CNN+

    End of the beginning;- and popular culture is signalling;— the beginning of the end.
    The top 3 Democrats are a laughing stock.
    * seeing some versions of problems.
    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
    Can we succinctly expose & encourage the turning points in New Zealand. 🙂

    I think it is a matter of staying true, true to our principles.
    So look a bit more where popular culture is going.
    That is why I enjoyed Dertysesh now & again comedic fisking Ardern.
    Seeing that a number of young people have Ardern & crew well figured out.
    Not his taste in music though even though his lyrics are well put. 🙂

    • Both Left and Right like the new “censorship” regime being conducted by “private” companies. They get to kill people (metaphorically) without being subject to checks and balances. It’s raw power. Politics and politicians love power. Any system without annoying Bill of Rights, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion is all right by the power mad. Censorship allows instant droning without repercussions. No appeal. Bank accounts closed. Your gone. Second class citizen, “yep”. Effectively killed.

      I like Musk, but if he saves Twitter he perpetuates the censorship regime, the global consumption empire. Best it collapses under is own contradictions with the jibbering pedophiles exposed like netted fish.

  10. Is the mask mandate still in force? I do not venture into the rivers of filth very often, maybe once a fortnight for fuel or business items. Have never worn a mask or signed in in any form and have never been challenged. Have been a couple of occasions where clip board warrior’s have entered my property masked up and my response is take that shit off your face you’re in the country now and they have complied. Lately on trips to the swamp the attendants behind the counter seem to be relieved to have someone that appears mask less . They are very friendly and wish me a good day when I leave. I am the only unjabbed member of our household and the only member that hasn’t had covid. I finished off the uneaten food on their plates using their utensils when they where ill. My daughter and her two children that live on a dairy farm are unjabbed and the daughters coworkers and her kids school associates have all fallen like flies. It certainly is a very tricky virus .///

    • Upyou2, thank god theres another one like me. Ive felt like im the only person in nz thats never worn a mask not bloody once, i know many on here and others are against masks and eventually got exemptions but not many can say they NEVER ONCE wore a stupid face nappy. Even some of the most biggest mask opponents i know have given in at some stage and worn the things to access a service of some sort.

      Ive never signed or scanned either, the 2 or 3 places that forced me to sign in before proceeding got their sign in sheets vandalized and full of expletives directed at cindy and contact number 0800fuckgovt 🙂

      We only just got the deadly coof a couple weeks ago after my daughter picked it up at a birthday party, up untill then id been around at least 10 covids at work and social life and even tho i tried very hard to catch it from them (even spent 4-5hrs driving with 2 quite ill covids) i didnt get it, only got crook after it was in the household 24/7.
      All of us are unvaxxed, all of us were pretty much back to normal after 24hrs (headache and sweats gone) yet my vaxxed mates and coworkers smashed for many days, currently have jabbed mates that caught it from me been bedridden for over a week its absolutely smashed them

    • The fat controller is going to rodger all New Zealanders. His arrogance will ultimately be Labour’s downfall.

      “One of those issues – one that hasn’t been associated much with Robertson but which he has been involved in the whole away along, is three waters. At its heart this is not really a local government reform, but an infrastructure one, which through political mismanagement has become bogged down in arguments over local democracy and iwi co-governance.
      “I happen to think this is one of the most important infrastructure changes we’ll make. Almost every week there’s a story on Stuff about a problem with water: a boil water notice, asbestos and some pipes, you know, issues with storm water flooding.”
      While he says that it is important to listen to concerns over governance, “ultimately, the changes will go through”.

  11. Former deputy PM Jim Anderton dies

    Former deputy prime minister Jim Anderton has died.

    The former Alliance leader “passed away peacefully overnight at Cashmere View Hospital in Christchurch”, his widow Carole said in a statement.

    Funeral details will be announced in due course. He was two weeks short of his 80th birthday.

    Former prime minister Helen Clark – who ran the country with Anderton as her deputy – said he was a “powerful advocate for the voiceless & marginalised & for a better, kinder, fairer New Zealand”.

    “He had huge leadership capacity & inspired me as a young Labour activist.

  12. So how is that zero road toll going then?

    A person has died in an early morning crash in Northland today, and another motorist died in a crash in Waikato late last night – taking the number of deaths on the roads since Friday to nine.

    Emergency services were called to a single-vehicle crash on Kaitaia-Awaroa Road in Herekino shortly after 1am.

    A police spokesperson said one person died at the scene.

    “Three other people were taken to hospital with serious injuries,” they said.

    It is notable that nothing , nada has been said about the huge traffic jams that are no linger on the Kapiti coast.
    Perhaps the new road has made a big difference.

    Still the finance situation is dire, with nepotism and corruption, plus bought about by vanity projects etc.,

    Seems to me to be setting up for stronger governmental controls to be placed on the people, like digital ID, social credit, rationing of food?

    • The ban on fert etc came about to stem the flow of foreign reserves, “green initiatives” were used as a smokescreen, they knew they were stuffed because of corruption and the ban just bought them a bit more time untill the wheels fell off.

      But as you say the parallels in the path ardern and co are leading us down… “green” “climate” “sustainable” blah blah blah its all just BS excuse to blow billions with zero accountability and setting up a scapegoat… ” oh no it wasnt our fault, climate change was far worse then predicted”

      The time line of the political history, and the borrowings becomes rather stark in Sri Lanka.
      Starker still are the past rising 5 years now in New Zealand.

      Sri Lanka ignoring the IMF plans, is like Robbo ignoring Treasury advice, which at least gives measurement as a tool and should not be hidden away.

  14. Another dogs breakfast

    An exclusive look at NZ’s largest dam to be built in decades

    The Waimea Dam at the top of the south is the largest public dam to be built in New Zealand in more than 20 years. While it’s due to start filling with water later this year, it’s behind schedule and way over budget.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/04/24/an-exclusive-look-at-nzs-largest-dam-to-be-built-in-decades/

    It’s about 75% complete with the large 50-metre high concrete face mostly in place.

    “We have found that this geology on the left-hand side hasn’t been what we expected. So rather than a nice hard sandstone we’ve got a much softer argillite material which has been, which breaks up very very easily,” Scott says.

    The unexpected issues with geology are the main reason for the dramatic cost increases, alongside Covid-19 and supply chain issues.

    When it was originally signed off by the Tasman District Council in 2018, the budget was $105 million. At last count, it’s now $185 million.

    12

    • What the fuck Unexpecetd Geology? Did the rocks go and change from when the initial engineering was done? Sounds like a first class fuck up from day one. And if that argillite is iffy it will get a lot worse once millions of tons of water starts exerting pressure. Kariba in Africa has a similar problem ( but different geology). If I lived down stream of that dam I’d be selling up now.

  15. Tame and other msm believe taxpayers money wasted on virtue signalling is apparently inconsequential, making no difference to our economy.

    Christopher Luxon has slammed Government spending as inflation in NZ soars, but struggled to pinpoint how the spending was directly responsible during an interview with Q+A’s Jack Tame.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/04/24/christopher-luxon-says-govt-spending-to-blame-for-inflation/

    In response to Tame saying these examples didn’t “amount to more than one or two percent of Government spending” and being a “drop in the ocean” of Crown spending, Luxon continued to defend National’s position on the Government’s “reckless” use of taxpayer money.

    “Small actions make up to make a big difference. You’ve got a culture where you’re happy to let $100 million slide, you’re happy to say an $800 million dollar walking and cycling path is a brilliant idea and it’s not,” said Luxon.

    Replying to Tame pointing out the walking and cycling path actually amounted to $51m, $750m less than what was first proposed, Luxon responded: “The bigger issue behind that is why did the Government think that was a stellar idea, why did they think they were going to spend $800 million of taxpayer’s money?”

        • Hmmm.

          Keywords include “Rotorua” and “whanau.”

          Incidentally, the four teens who died in Invercargill are described as “former pupils.”
          “The head of the school where four teenage former pupils were killed in a horrific crash on Friday said they had had a life of potential ahead of them.”

          So these 16- and 17-year-olds had already ended their formal education without completing high school, even before their deaths. I wonder if they had completed NCEA Level 1?

          The principle seems out of touch. “They had a life of potential ahead of them” with no qualifications? (Insert Tui ad)

          Note: I realize that many successful businessmen and entrepreneurs also may lack formal educational qualifications.

    • High inflation is usually treated by an economic crash and high unemployment. The fat-fairy and friends have done everything possible to exacerbate inflation. Helicopter money, whilst locking people at home. Increasing minimum wages. Bad investment after bad investment: kiwibuild, tree scam. Flooding us with choking legislation, like carbon zero. Increasing our dependence on overseas fuel by shutting down local sources of energy: marsden pt, oil exploration, gas exploration, coal mining. Topped off by a spike in fuel prices from a manufactured crisis in Eastern Europe.

      Robertson will not pay. We will pay. He will pop a popper and hit the grindr app.

  18. My daughter told me she had
    seen a photo on Facebook, or
    somewhere like that, of some horses
    having covers put on them.
    The caption underneath read:
    ‘Cindy’s bridesmaids getting
    dressed for the wedding’.

    I had a good laugh at that.

  19. Gangland shooting in central Wellington: ‘It cannot happen again’

    The pre-dawn incident in Dixon St on Saturday left two people with life-threatening injuries. It was followed by a gang affiliate’s house being shot up in suburban Tawa – Wellington’s northernmost suburb.

    Police believe the shootings are linked and gang related. Seven people have been arrested.

    The first shots were fired directly opposite Wellington’s notorious Te Aro Park, where the cost of social harm over seven years was put at near $15 million and there were 4427 offences in the period to late September 2019.

    Tomorrow we will commemorate the sacrifices of kiwis who fought & died for the dream of freedom. That freedom has many aspects, one is the right to disagree & still be respected. Yet tens of thousands of kiwis are denied the right to work because of their views on mandates.

    These people have mortgages and families – and should be given their jobs back.

    So let’s restore their freedom and their right to go back to the jobs they once had.

    The sacrifice of so many ANZACs was for them as well.

  21. De Santis taking up a cudgel and going at the left via Disney feels important. That the right finally are making a foray into the culture war and pushing the left back into their psychotic void. If only a little. A hit, a palpable hit. May it launch an avalanche of reason and return to sanity.

    • Disgusting. I never was anti-vax, but am after the Covid Eugenic program. Pharma injecting kids for cash, like farmers. Medicine perverted by money, and the docs meekly go along. RFK Jr been hammering this for years, fighting the beast. Injection regime correlated with US SIDS.

    • The drug companies can see this as shooting fish in a barrel.

      Seems like a very profitable pin & needle cushion set up.

      I am not antivax, but I would be weighing up a lot more other general information, knowing my own doctors withhold information, will not openly consider other treatments, and are very ok with putting one onto Remdesivir.
      Some vaxx’s may be warranted, but beware, too often now they have changed adjuvants, (fillers, active carriers) and also turned into “combos” with other vaxxes, like one can not get a straight plain tetanus shot in NZ.

      Nor can I simply trust the medical system, having now experienced the formulaic demanding autocracy.

      • Until covid I was never anti-vax either. I still think that it is down to personal choice, but if you have a look at the studies comparing vaxed and unvaxed kids that came out of the US in 2020 there is no comparison between the overall health outcomes. The vaxed kids have way more health issues

  22. House bus plunges off road and down cliff in Mangorewa Gorge
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/04/house-bus-plunges-off-road-and-down-cliff-in-mangorewa-gorge.html

    Police said two people were inside the bus at the time of the accident. One was seriously injured and the other suffered moderate injuries.

    Reminds me of this:
    MOHAKA BRIDGE HOUSE BUS CRASH
    At around 8.45pm on Sunday the 10 September 1995, a 1948 Ford housebus travelling north, crashed off the 50 metre Mohaka Bridge on State Highway Five – also known as the Napier – Taupo Road with the loss of eight lives, one of the worst road crashes in New Zealand history.

    • Quite a steep bit of road and windie. Better than it used to be. The road from the TGA side is good these days.
      Gorge on the Rotorua side is a disgrace. Different county. RDC.
      Always treat it with respect especially if frosty. Quite shaded. Seen a few cars come to grief there in the winter.
      Road is very busy these days as its a direct road thru from the north of Rotorua to Tauranga to either the Lakes industrial or the motorway to the port. Lots of daily travellers for work both ways so busy morning and night. about 45 minutes Greerton to Ngongataha.

  23. So he wasn’t protestor.

    Man charged with Parliament grounds fire
    Fri, 22 Apr 2022, 1:27PuM

    https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/crime/remand-without-plea-for-man-charged-with-setting-parliament-grounds-tent-fire/?fbclid=IwAR1_i6gHWjgBfOj4OF2erbt9Moo9bDV0dK8BQ04IpcWRXTuDJc1ShE9hiHs

    A man charged with setting fire to tents at the Parliament grounds protest has been remanded at an appearance at the Christchurch District Court.

    Kieran Brent Lange-Crowley, 22, whose address is given as Petone, did not appear in court before a judge — his case was dealt with at the court office by a registrar.

    He was remanded on bail to May 13.

    He has entered no plea to a charge that on March 2, he damaged tents by fire at Parliament grounds, when he should have known there was a danger to life.

    March 2 was the final day of the protest when police moved against the occupiers and fires broke out.

  24. New Zealand cops would tell you to take guitar lessons, but this advice will make you more accurate.

    …. Florida Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson also encouraged other residents to follow in the homeowner’s footsteps and take gun safety classes, adding that they are “more than welcome” to …. …. 🙂
    … …..We prefer that you do, actually. So, whoever that was, you’re not in trouble, come see us. We have a gun safety class we put on every other Saturday,

    Seems a great way to save the police some money. Done & dusted. 🙂
