  1. Pfizer could have done away with the 32 pages of side effects and cleared things up by stating, ” oh and it won’t prevent covid” just ask our lying ferret of a prime minister Cindy Ardern.

    Introduction

    Execution by Royal elephant is a gruesome death and this account of the Indo-Greeks starts when a poor man in western India found by luck a large diamond, was cheated of it, and sought vengeance by murder… and was likely executed for his crime in this terrible manner. Remarkably these gruesome events lead to the first discovery of coins of the Indo-Greek kingdoms in 1822 by Major James Tod. Ironically, Indo-Greek kingdoms were founded (about 180 BCE) after the murder, by way of elephant, of the rightful maharaja of India in a Palace coup!

    James Tod was an officer of the East India Company; he was also an Oriental scholar and a collector of antiquities. Tod knew from Classical sources that the Achaemenid Persian Empire control of regions in the North-western Indian subcontinent formally ended around the time of the Macedonian conquest of the Persians by Alexander the Great. In 326 BCE India was invaded by Alexander, and after his death in Babylon in 323 BCE, Greek kingdoms or Yavanarajya (forgotten, or considered semi-legendary) had lingered on in India for a period after that.  King Menander (c.155 BCE–c.130 BCE) was the most illustrious and successful Indo-Greek ruler, recorded in both ancient Western and ancient Eastern literary traditions.

    In addition to Ancient Greek, two other scripts appeared on the coins of Indo-Greeks: Kharoṣṭhī (an extinct ancient Indo-Iranian script, once used in India and Central Asia) and Brāhmī (descendants continue to be used today across South and Southeast Asia). The first coins to bear legends in these scripts were those of the Indo-Greek kings.

    Apart from the numismatic record, almost nothing is known about an early Indo-Greek king Agathocles (c.190–c.180 BCE). I suggest the evidence of his unique coinage is consistent with Agathocles having undergone a religious conversion – not dissimilar to better known earlier conversion of Ashoka the Great (c.268–232 BCE) and later conversion of King ‘Milinda’ (the Buddhist name for King Menander, who may have been inspired by Agathocles). Agathocles also introduced reform to India’s antiquated system of punch-mark coinage (kārṣāpaṇa).

    Indo-Greek kingdoms remain among the least understood political and social entities of the ancient world. Indeed, only eight of these Greek maharaja are known from literary, epigraphic, and archaeological sources, while over forty can be identified from coins alone. They have a lot to tell us….

  3. The latest from our govt. Dept we never ever needed. Its appalling bullshit.
    Because at the end of threday the truth is in the eye of the beholder not some alogoritim..

    ‘Tectonic shift’: How the Parliament protest supercharged NZ’s misinfodemic

    The bulk of Facebook disinformation that swirled around the violent climax of summer’s Parliament protest stemmed from just a dozen local accounts.

    That’s according to a major new analysis that’s explored how social media activity inflamed tensions that spilled out over three weeks in the capital, causing a “tectonic shift” in New Zealand’s disinformation landscape.

    Surge in online traffic

    In their just-released analysis, researchers at the Disinformation Project drew on open-source data covering tens of millions of posts and hundreds of hours of videos and live-streamed footage.

    The unprecedented surge in online traffic they observed around February’s anti-mandate convoy to Wellington, and the 24-day occupation that followed, surprised even them.

      • Who determined what was disinformation?
        Were only a few accounts posting because Trev and his blue bullies had blocked the live-feed transmissions from the grounds?
        Has anyone found the pitchforks yet?
        Was it Lynch or Mutch who breathlessly told us the protestors were armed with pitchforks.
        Media told us police had battery acid thrown over them. There was never confirmation of that. The Head goon said they were unable to identify the substance. Believe that?
        Media said protesters sprayed police with urine and faeces. Any proof?
        How many disinformation accounts are attributed to the media – they spun plenty of it.
        Anyone get the impression the announcement about disinformation is … disinformation?

    • The question always arrives at this point:

      1. Who decides, for us, what is true?

      Those trying to remove free speech are siding with those in power. Will they continue to describe those questioning government as terrorist neo nazis if Trump and other centre right politicians gain power?

      We know they won’t because their goal is control not factual information.

    • Right now there seems to be a coordinated campaign of re writing the truth, whilst slandering others for looking more widely over many issues, like the suppression of the Buffalo shooting, while pushing the connection to the Christchurch massacre.

      The 5 a week ram raids over a year, but shhhh! as Child Commissioner Becroft is able to keep this quiet under court suppression orders. One a day now or even more? poverty?, …. yeah right ….

      3 Waters and Co-governance issues, also being reset as the new democracy?

      Is is it because such media as “The Platform” and Elon Musk’s twitter, exposure of bots, etc. ?

      The ongoing crime problems here in New Zealand?

      The health problems of the vaxxed increasing, blurring into increased flue problems in the younger students like at Dunedin?

      What is the situation in the “Donbass” Ukraine, and the UKraine resistance, as many now are looking for more considered and reasoned evaluations. Truth is the first causality in War, and nothing simply goes to whatever plans.

      Just as the Reserve Bank is saying along with Robbo that inflation is no problem and supplies are good, despite waiting periods for parts, + increased costs, or even arrival of ev cars.

      https://thedisinfoproject.org/

      The disinformation people claiming to to be independent, yet funded, coordinated, and controlled by the Prime Minister & Cabinet’s office.
      Able to push and instigate other parts of government to fund, and supply resources, while claiming independence, when they are so far from the truth.

      It all seems many things are not allowed and if they can to totally suppress.
      That is as has been done, to suppress data, to suppress knowledge, and to stop reasoning.
      Any one who reasons, thinks is to be put down as a dissident, and not allow any dissonance or questioning.

      Any investigation should be on what was regurgitated from the “podium of the only truth” and how Ardern’s own department exerts such great controls, in slyly removing & defaming “free speech” and “inquiry”.

  4. I have noted with interest efforts by the Hamilton City Council to rename various streets and parks etc from their “Colonial” given names to Maori names. One such name is Bryce Street, named after my Great Great Grandfather on my mothers side. He was a New Zealand politician from 1871 to 1891 and Minister of Native Affairs from 1879 to 1884. In his attitudes to Māori land questions, he favoured strict legal actions against Māori opposed to alienation, and he directed the invasion of Parihaka and the arrest of the leaders of the movement.
    Described as being stubborn and embittered to Māori questions,Bryce was the public face of a harsh policy towards Māori, but his actions were supported by the Premier and other members of his cabinet. Was Leader of Opposition in 1891.
    All these years later and it appears his Great Great Grandson has much the same views.
    The Hamilton City Council has of course in good Local Body Tradition written a full report on all those involved with the name changes. Thaey have come up with a far greater obituary than I ever knew so a worthy addition to the family history – From Page 39 of the PDF.

    • Interesting about your GGGrandfather’s involvement HP, and yes he does sound like you. As a born and raised Hamiltonian I of course know where Bryce Street is. My GP used to have his office there, I’ve shopped along there and crossed it as a shortcut to other local streets. Bryce Street runs along Centre Place Mall and I drive down Bryce Street to get onto the Claudland’s Bridge. To hell with them changing the name. The anglo history and culture in this country is being cancelled and replaced.
      Message to dl, if it isn’t broken don’t fix it. Replacing anglo history just builds resentment, and I won’t know where the f*ck I am any longer.

  5. They are desperately trying to turn this into a Capitol insurrection style event in an attempt to cover up their disastrous handling of a nonviolent event. Funny they don’t mention Mallards involvement. He was clearly responsible for 90 percent of the damage and should be put on trial for his actions. This was supposed to be a reply to Viking at 7:17. Obviously something went terribly wrong.

      $572,000 on a slide in Parliament grounds.
      $330,000 in legal fees for falsely accusing an employee of Parliament of falsely raping a woman.

  6. Cindy and her Government being well and truly rheemed a new one by a former lover.

    No wonder Ardern, the Coward of the Country, is in hiding.

    “The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is planning an interest rate-hiking cycle so steep the market doubts whether it will follow through with all of it, and the Government has signalled it is hitting the brakes on new infrastructure projects to avoid overheating the economy – all related to issues for which the Government was solely blaming the Ports of Auckland just a year ago.”

  7. This is a great little documentary about the Kaikoura UFU lights. It’s more interesting than I thought as I didn’t realise a few things.

    They were seen on multiple occasions by unconnected witnesses. Particularly aircrew. They were filmed on multiple occasions by a professional cameraman travelling with the aircrew to report on the story.

    Best of all – Radar at both Wellington and Christchurch air traffic control confirmed the location and movements of the object. As did aircraft radar.

        • Well actually old and still cogent enough to remember all the bullshit at the time. Mikey is right. Mostly caused by inversion layers and lights from squid boats that used to fish in big fleets off the west coast.
          Sadly you didn’t bother to look it all up in papers past etc but ran right with Kea’s conspiracy.

          Hundreds of boats involved each season removing squd and sending it to Japan.

          I went and listened to NZ’s then squid expert. We knew nothing about squid let alone giant squid so he set about learning. Well that was until the govt decided the Uni’s should have all the funds.
          very interesting talk run by Doc who were in those days interested in our species rather than their new utes.

          These boats fished all over the pacific.
          Interesting fact. Why did squid boats fish mostly at night?

          Well not because the fish come to the lights but because it’s too fucking hot in the middle of the day to work on deck.
          You’re welcome, now go back to Jacinda inspired conspiracy theories.

          • Not discounting anything (as I am on the fence re such matters) but it is also possibly worth noting that a certain Spielberg film was released in NZ cinemas in 1978 and that movie triggered a worldwide surge in UFO sightings…

          • Yep, squid boats on radar flying at 20,000 feet, doing very very high speeds turns several times all within one frame of a high speed broadcast film!

            Do you know where I could buy such a “squid boat”? It would make flying on a National/International airlines redundant. Breakfast in Queenstown @8am, morning tea in Sydney, lunch in New York, dinner in Paris, and back home in time to watch the Simpsons. The off to the Pegasus galaxy for a weekend away!

            NZ Ground based Air Radar is incapable of picking up squid boats, the angle of inclination is set at a minimum to avoid all ground obstacles. The radar conversations between operators in the respective control towers and what they saw on the screens were documented.

            If Chch radar could pick up squid boats, it would also we capable of picking up every house, supermarket, and Indian corner dairy between Harewood and the Pacific Ocean, but in any event, with an inclination low enough to pick up all that, the Port Hills would block the sweep of the ocean. In case you didn’t know, sea level is lower than land level, lower than the port hills. So unless said squid boats were airborne, they are going to be as invisible to the ground radar as are the Port Hills, and all those Indian dairies in between.

            V, you need to be more specific.
            [1] Are you accepting that UFO’s exist, but you think this heavily documented, and filmed UFO sighting, was created by a bunch of liars and a massive conspiracy involving multiple Safe Air pilots, military personnel, reporters, and broadcast technicians?

            Or
            [2] That UFOs and aliens don’t exist, and that planet Earth is the only inhabited world in the universe. A universe where there are a billion galaxies, and where in this galaxy there are a billion systems that could support life. How can you attest to all that when as a race we haven’t gone further than the moon? That would be like a three year old living on a farm without TV or internet, and walking to the gate,and looking as far as the eye can see, and erroneously conclude that his family and him are the only humans in existence.

            Or
            [3] That other worlds DO exist, but all these other worlds are behind in development to that of mankind, and are still throwing sticks at dinosaurs?

            In [2] and [3], how can you know this unless you had been to the 1 billion systems in 1 billion galaxies? If so, how did you travel? By a flying Squid boat, traveling at Warp 9.99999? And were any Squid harmed on the way?

  8. A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly.
    The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say,
    “That’s not it” and put it down again.
    This went on for some time until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested.
    The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army.
    The soldier picked it up, smiled, and said, “That’s it.”

    • Looks like you’re free to plant, but need permit to graze in winter. Pugging prevention.
      Farmers try to avoid pugging; it destroys the structure of the soil, which takes time to recover. It’d be good if the govt just minded their own business (it’s not as if they’re short of things to fix), and let business get on with what it does best.

    • At work we’re not gunna bother, just do away with winter crops and grazing cows on paddocks over winter will just plant grain and make silage/balage. You also need consent if more then 10% of your farm gets winter cropped, pretty much every farm ive been on do at least 20% of their runoff block.

      Theres gunna be serious shortage for dairy grazing, many are dodging the rules by laying out thousands of bales of baleage on grass which leaves just as big of a pugged mess. Guess the dogooders will change the rules to ban that in the next year or so.

  9. Doctor Jessica Rose and Dr Peter McCullough have a new paper out in pre-print examining the phenomenon of myocarditis caused by covid vaccines. I have not attempted to read the whole [paper, it is quite technical but the results are easy to understand:

    Results: 3569/3594 (99.3%) cases of COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis requiring hospitalization reports analyzed in the VAERS domestic data set were not co-associated with COVID-19 respiratory illness in accordance with either ‘negative’ polymerase chain reactions (PCR) to detect SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 diagnosis, or both.

  10. The Maori population increasing, why or how?
    Well because people are changing their ethnicity.

    So easy, you can become an Eskimo or even an Inuit if you so choose, it seems.

    “Natural increase (births minus deaths) was 13,900. The balance of Māori population gain is made up of net migration and net inter-ethnic mobility (those changing their ethnic identification to include Māori, minus those no longer including Māori in their ethnic identification).”

  13. A woman and a baby were in the doctor’s examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby’s first exam. The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.
    ‘Breast-fed,’ she replied.
    ‘Well, strip down to your waist,’ the doctor ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination. Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said,
    ‘No wonder this baby is underweight. You don’t have any milk.’

  14. Good post by Simon Black of Sovereign Man received by email.
    May 17, 2022
    On Wednesday July 3rd in the year 1315, King Louis X of France– also know as “Louis the Headstrong”– issued a groundbreaking edict.
    “Whereas, according to natural right, everyone should be born free. . .” he began. “Many persons amongst our common people have fallen into the bonds of slavery, which much displeaseth us.”
    “Our Kingdom is called and named the Kingdom of the Franks [which means ‘free’ in old French]. . . therefore I do decree that such serfdom be redeemed to freedom.”
    And like that, with the stroke of a quill, Louis X abolished slavery and serfdom in France.
    Unfortunately for the serfs, the King’s emancipation didn’t last very long; Louis died less than a year later following a particularly grueling tennis match (true story), and his successors weren’t so liberal.
    More than four centuries later, in fact, in the mid 1700s, there were still more than 1 million feudal serfs in France, according to historian Hippolyte Taine. And their plight was even worse than their medieval ancestors.
    An 18th century serf in France was subject to feudal dues of at least 14% to his local nobleman.
    Plus there were a host of other absurd regulations; a French serf was tied to the land and unable to leave without his lord’s consent. They were required to provide several weeks of free labor to the government. And any serf who died without children had all of his possessions forfeited to the nobility.
    On top of this tax, the French serf was required to pay a 10% tithing to the church. And on top of that, the national government also imposed taxes.
    There was a 5% national income tax, a national ad valorem tax on personal possessions, and national sales taxes on common goods like salt.
    The French government had also created an army of tax collectors who were authorized to forcibly enter people’s homes, search for hidden wealth, and arbitrarily seize their property in the case of any suspected tax evasion.
    This is how the word peasant became synonymous with ‘poor person’. Because peasant is derived from the French word paysant, which literally just meant ‘civilian’ in old French.
    It wasn’t until the 1700s when French citizens, the paysants, were taxed into destitution, that the term added its impoverished meaning.
    Travelers from England who crossed into France at the time were shocked at the poverty they saw; one English traveler, Lady Mary Montagu, wrote of her trip to a French village in 1718 that
    “the whole town [came] out to beg, with such miserable starved faces, and thin tattered clothes, they need no other eloquence to persuade the wretchedness of their condition.”
    And it was under such wretched conditions that invention and innovation died. French taxes were so high, and people were so miserable, that no one had any incentive to develop technology or become more productive.
    French productivity and agriculture were at least a century behind England, which was already using machinery and advanced crop rotation techniques.
    The French economy essentially remained in the Dark Ages thanks to the government destroying every incentive to grow.
    This is a familiar theme throughout history– governments have a tendency to create terrible conditions and bad incentives that hold back an economy.
    We can see this everywhere today. And one area in particular is this supposed “food crisis” that everyone is talking about.
    Bill Gates. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. The head of the UN World Food Programme. Germany’s foreign minister. McKinsey & Company. The New York Times. CNN.
    They’re all warning of a food crisis. Even the President of the United States said of food shortages, “it’s going to be real.” Just like the 81 million people who voted for him.
    Now, reports of a full-blown food crisis are overstated. There’s plenty of food in the world, plenty of production. The sun didn’t stop shining. The soil wasn’t suddenly depleted of its nutrients.
    Frankly there are ALWAYS challenges with food production somewhere in the world, every year.
    Just this year there was a bird flu that wiped out millions of chickens in the United States. Farmers in southern and eastern Ukraine are obviously struggling.
    But what you probably didn’t hear is that Australia had a record wheat harvest this season. Ironically, so did Russia. Brazilian corn production is near a record high 112 million metric tons. Countless fruits, vegetables, and nuts ranging from avocados to olives to walnuts to tomatoes are being produced at or near record quantities.
    Plus, even if there really were critical problems with food production, there’s a vast amount of land in the world that could be planted, especially with seasonal cereal crops like wheat.
    You might have read a lot about fertilizer shortages over the past few months; however, the three key ingredients in agricultural fertilizers– Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium– are not in short supply.
    Nitrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe; literally 80% of the air we breathe is composed of nitrogen. Phosphorus, which comes from phosphate mining, is incredibly abundant in the United States, Brazil, and Morocco.
    And Potassium comes potash mining, of which Canada has the world’s biggest production and reserves.
    Bottom line, the world is NOT lacking any of the ingredients to produce food.
    It has definitely become more challenging to move food from farm to fridge, however.
    This system– harvest, packing, inspection, shipping, warehousing– worked well for decades. The global supply chain only broke down recently, because of the pandemic hysteria, and some of this has undoubtedly affected the food trade.
    But, like France’s economic plight in the 1700s, this is mostly a question of bad government.
    At its core, there is nothing wrong with the global supply chain.
    Need convincing? Consider that Pfizer has been able to produce billions of vaccines, distribute them across the world, and even manage to maintain a temperature of MINUS 90 degrees Centigrade during shipment.
    You never hear anyone talk about global supply chain problems when it comes to vaccine distribution. But with respect to baby formula in the United States? Suddenly there’s an insurmountable problem with the global supply chain.
    The bottom line is that the global supply chain works, but only when they really want it to work. And their prioritization is utterly disgusting.
    They could fix all of it.
    If the government is so concerned about high oil prices, why haven’t they fast tracked new production? If they’re so concerned about fertilizer prices, why haven’t they fast tracked permitting for new phosphate mines, potash mines, and fertilizer production plants?
    Whether you chalk it up to them deliberately destroying the economy, or it’s just a comical level of incompetence, the results are obvious. And the Baby Formula fiasco is the perfect example.
    That’s why it’s so interesting to hear Joe Biden say that the food crisis “is going to be real,” because he seems hell-bent on making it happen.
    Even more ridiculous are the solutions to this supposed food crisis.
    We have our techno-aristocracy– people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, who want to reimagine how the rest of us paysants should live our lives.
    They’re calling for a “green revolution”, which sounds idealistic. Until you see what they’re actually suggesting.
    They want to pump our foods full of more chemicals and raise the bar on genetic modification. Gates wants us to eat “synthetic beef” and “alternative protein”. And his buddies at the World Economic Forum think we should eat weeds and insects.
    These people are insane.
    Fortunately it’s quite easy to distance yourself from their ideas. After all, a lot of our basic foods are super easy to grow.
    Simple greens, like lettuce and cilantro, can be planted in a window sill box and be ready to eat in just a couple of weeks.
    If you have access to sunlight, a little bit of soil, and a paper cup, you can start taking back control today.

  15. What a load of tosh. Spreading govt propaganda.

    NZ’s ‘disinformation dozen’ drove three-quarters of fake news chatter on final day of Parliament protest
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/05/nz-s-disinformation-dozen-drove-three-quarters-of-fake-news-chatter-on-final-day-of-parliament-protest.html

    The research, which is yet to be peer-reviewed, noted: “Aotearoa New Zealand’s ‘misinformation dozen’ on Facebook were responsible for a considerable proportion of posts and engagement during the Parliament Protest”.

    “On 2 March alone, 73 percent of interactions in the mis and disinformation ecology were generated by just a dozen accounts,” the authors said.

    • Is he paid by the POT
      YES as revealed by Guy Hatchard’s “The Jacinda Papers” and now further confirmed by Sir Ian Taylor’s government dealings.

      Very deeply installed and systemically in the New Zealand infrastructure.
      Operating on the “Discourse Consensus” principles where any other idea is part of creating dissonance, and those dissidents should be totally suppressed.

      Paid by the “Department of the Prime Minister & Cabinet” offices, and connived, pressured along with other governmental connection to further devious contributions.

      As mentioned in this thread above:—
      https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-1123/#comment-241785

      “The Jacinda Papers” by Guy Hatchard ..
      Further proven by Sir Ian Taylor’s run-ins with the Prime Minister’s office of head bureaucrat Brook Barrington.

      That Prime Minister department that coordinates how to cope, and control message on all the government issues from Kiwi Build, Co-Governance, Maori Health, 3 Waters, Vaccine Mandates, Passports etc.. Climate Change, Carbon Emissions, Taxes, etc., etc..

      These many painful controlling boils needs to lanced, and exposed to the sunlight, for the “putridity” and stench that is being covered up.

    • I can see in part of where Scott Morrison is getting that so far wrong! and to grant rights, sovereignty to the UN. NO ! !
      There really has been no investigation into the Wuhan Lab, and the interconnections to the USA, Canada, and now the Ukrainian Labs.
      “Gain of Function” any one?
      Vaccines data? research closed off, so NO ! !

      Just like John Key in signing up to the UNDRIP for indigenous rights, that now feeds through the corrupt processes of He Puapua into Maori Lqw, 3 Waters, Maori Health, Maori History curriculum into Maori Science, taking all.

      Still to hit the brunt of Winston Peters signing up for UN Global Migration Pact, that Covid rules for the moment have stymied.

      It is treason to allow such a lose of independence and allow others like the unaccountable corrupt UN & NGO’s to systemically control your country!

  16. Attempt to shut down the NZ pork industry?

    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/18/buyer-steps-in-to-help-struggling-canterbury-pig-farmer/
    Canterbury pig farmer Hamish Mee has been thrown a lifeline as he faced the possibility of having to euthanise 219 pigs he couldn’t sell.

    The pork industry is still facing longer term issues with the Code of Welfare for Pigs, which is currently under consultation. There are 23 proposed changes, which if implemented, would prove very costly for pig farmers.

    New Zealand has around 90 commercial pig farms in New Zealand.

    • Phew, looks like the stupid family dodged a bullet!
      When we knew we were finishing up dairying we were on the verge of buying pig farm from my FIL, things fell through after a change of plans but looks like it was a good thing as we would be struggling by now.
      FIL retired and got out last year, probably a good thing as the pork industry is facing some major problems and all the junk imported pork is pushing nz pork to the brink… add to that feed and compliance costs and ill be suprised if nz pork industry is even functional in 2 or 3 years.
      Pig farmers face the same probs as most other industries, high production costs, a rigged market which means the farmer and consumer get screwed and the middle man is mr moneybags.

  17. Hipkins and the POT trying to slip out from flacking any blame

    Coronavirus: Chris Hipkins says ‘independent’ COVID-19 response review needed for ‘public confidence’, admits low-value of pre-departure tests
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/05/coronavirus-chris-hipkins-says-independent-covid-19-response-review-needed-for-public-confidence-admits-low-value-of-pre-departure-tests.html

    “We don’t quite know how the winter is going to unfold yet, but I think it is likely that at some point in the second half of this year, we will need to turn our minds to what a more formal review looks like.”
    Seymour released a statement following the Select Committee, saying Hipkins is “forcing us to bear the cost of pre-departure testing despite himself admitting there’s no logical reason for it to continue”.

    “Those costs are paid by travellers, both travelling Kiwis and their visitors, and whole industries that depend on the border being open,” the ACT leader said.

  18. In the 14th century people were concerned about The Plague.

    In the 19th century people were concerned about working 16 hour days.

    In the 20th century people were concerned about going to War.

    In the 21st century people are concerned about how offended they are.

  19. Court backlogged by 150,000 appearances due to pandemic

    Lockdowns and other Covid-19 restrictions have caused almost 150,000 court appearances to be delayed during the pandemic, often forcing victims to put their lives on hold while they await justice.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/18/court-backlogged-by-150000-appearances-due-to-pandemic/

    “I don’t really know what the solution is short of getting more judges, more courtrooms and staff to get through the backlog,” he said.

    “I understand the Ministry of Justice is working on that. They’re obviously acutely aware of it and I don’t think there’s any solution available, short of throwing a lot more money at it, and perhaps that money is better spent in other sectors of society.”

    The Government had pumped in $40 million for more judges, while work was happening to make sure cases went ahead.

  20. Reviewing todays discussions, I have concluded Mikey has probably been abducted and probed by aliens. He was no doubt asking for it, given his short dress and lose behaviour , but please be sensitive around the topic 😂

    • Viking@1725

      Coming as it does from Richard Prebble, the article is immediately suspect and one does have to wonder what’s in it for him.

      He has NEVER been known to do something for nothing, lies like the proverbial to his own advantage, and is as much of a turncoat as luxflakes, shaw et al

      Best to treat the article with some scepticism.

  21. Great to be back in Noosa trendsetters. Queenstown would have to be the pick of my tour. Gods own. Wish they would hurry up and form a break away South Island. Poo skins can have the North, us civil whiteys will populate the South. Keep the feral riff raff out. Enjoyable flights all round on air NZ. Hard to fault although they do need to biff the gay hosties and jumbo cows body lard arse aging chixs and replace them with air asia lookalikes in skin tight minis. Last row down back can be massage/ jigy jig boom boom short time. Win/Win.
    As you were.

    Looked like a pretty good turnout for a new person at this stage of the election cycle.
    Also worth reading the comments.Very positive and supportive.
