    “”OPINION:— Richard Prebble:— 22 Jun, 2022

    National can win the election – but can they govern?

    The Tauranga byelection has confirmed the opinion polls. National and Act can win the next election. Together the two parties got 66.59 per cent of the vote.
    Labour with the Greens support got a disastrous 25.21 per cent.

    Governing in 2023 will be very challenging. Act has been preparing by announcing policy. National is saying what it won’t do.
    Labour is putting 82 per cent of all adults on some form of income support.
    National leader Christopher Luxon says “I’m not dreaming up a policy to reform welfare”. He is promising to increase benefits.

    At a time of full employment Labour is running a deficit.
    National’s finance spokeswoman, Nicola Willis, says “I’m not proposing cuts of any sort.”

    Dr Shane Reti, National’s health spokesman, says health’s “many stakeholders” are too “exhausted” to undertake any “large structural change”. Labour’s centralised health reforms will be retained.
    The Māori Health Authority will not be abolished but “folded in”.

    Luxon is a “big fan” of minimum wage increases, as long as the economy is growing enough to sustain them.

    The Arms Act has not stopped the gangs from having guns.

    National voted with Labour to override local town planning. Both supported the Child Poverty Act that has not stopped a record number of children living in motels.
    The policy National has announced is what every party in opposition says. Oppositions have promised to get tough on gangs going back to Norman Kirk promising to take the bikes off the bikies.

    Every party says it is going to get rid of government waste.

    Adopting Act’s policy of charter schools by itself will not solve the crisis in education.
    Pupils are graduating unable to read or do math.
    Even in the best state schools education standards have slipped.

    National’s only significant promise is to restore price stability as the Reserve Bank’s sole remit.

    In effect, National is promising to be a Labour government under new management. No matter how good the management, if the policy is flawed, it will fail.

    A major reason why Labour’s policies are failing is Labour is placing at the heart of government a radical and unworkable reinterpretation of the treaty as a partnership.
    Luxon says he also believes that the treaty “means partnership”.
    Luxon has tried to have it both ways. He has also said he does not believe tino rangatiratanga meant co-governance.
    But he is not opposed to co-governance on a local level just in national policies.
    Luxon then complains Labour has not explained what co-governance means.
    National could set the agenda for the next election by explaining exactly what co-governance means.

    Either the Treaty ceded sovereignty, protected property rights and gave everyone, Māori and non-Māori the same rights of citizenship, or the Treaty is an agreement to co-govern the country in partnership with a self-selected elite.

    The Crown is everybody, Māori and non-Māori. It is totally unworkable to have Māori on both sides of a partnership.
    Minister Willie Jackson says we have a new form of democracy where he negotiates in secret co-governance just with iwi leaders.
    Who represents the country?

    When only half the partnership is accountable to the electorate, New Zealand is no longer a democratic country.
    Instead, one partner is like a New Zealand House of Lords with its only qualification being birth.
    If National adopts Labour’s reinterpretation of the Treaty as a partnership, then in government National will be just as paralysed as Labour.
    The Treaty zealots in the civil service will destroy the Government.

    National’s great boast was its claim to be the party for all New Zealanders regardless of class, race, religion or gender.
    Every previous National leader would reject the idea that Queen Victoria agreed to co-govern New Zealand in partnership with 500 odd Māori chiefs.
    Luxon believes that he can fudge the treaty issue. Jacinda Ardern avoids the issue too.

    Both Luxon and Ardern come from marketing backgrounds. He was a brand manager. Her degree is in public relations.
    They both believe it is the sizzle not the sausage that matters.
    Marketing can win elections. It worked for Ardern twice. It has worked for Luxon in Tauranga.
    If the next election is just a battle of the brands National will win.
    National then just needs to agree the Treaty is a partnership and Luxon/Willis can lead a Labour-lite Government in coalition with Te Pāti Māori.

    If National wants to be a government that promotes free enterprise and personal responsibility then the party needs to issue policy that reflects these principles.
    A good place to start would be declaring that the Treaty settled sovereignty, protects property rights and establishes equality of citizenship.

    • If you believe that scenario then you need to vote for Matt king. He said nothing that infringes the bill of rights will be allowed. None of this co-governance shit, no three waters, two hospital systems or anything that doesn’t mean we are all the same.

    • One of the reasons open markets accelerate development is that their decentralized nature creates a diversity of efforts to capture the future. Since no one can see the future, that diversity is more likely to hit on upcoming economic needs than any plan,

      Now this wasn’t about NZ but China. It is still appropriate to us.

      When the planners make a mistake, a huge national effort goes in the wrong direction, something less likely in fundamentally decentralized markets. In time, a communistic centralization will waste resources, stifle imagination and experimentation, and steal the economic dynamism of past decades. The economy will stagnate long after the COVID lockdowns are just a bad memory.

    • Prebble said:
      “In effect, National is promising to be a Labour government under new management.”

      He is right in this National under virtually every thing Labour have done, National have agreed with Labour, be it housing and compliance legislation or recently being tough on gangs and offering to work with Labour to introduce new legislation (without knowing what the legislation may be) to deal with gangs.

      All the Bald Headed Prick from National, Luxon can do is make some platitudes and hollow noises.

      For example, National say they oppose 3 Waters, but have done absolutely nothing towards demonstrating that.

      National have left the opposition, costs and the heavy lifting to the Taxpayers Union and Groundswell. National have not supported them one iota in their roadshow around the country in opposition to 3 Waters, but will want to reap the rewards of the Taxpayers Union and Groundswells work in opposing 3 Waters at the Ballot Box.

      Quite frankly Luxon and National have become a great disappointment.

      This country needs some strong leadership and vision for the future. Prebble is right, with National and Luxon, all we will get is more of the same crap that Labour are currently dishing up to this country, but possibly with a little different management style.

  2. Seeds as a Weapon

    China is the world’s largest agricultural importer with imports totaling $133.1 billion in 2019, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

    Plagued by shrinking arable land, natural disasters, and with swelling demand for food to feed one-sixth of the world’s population, the country has for years shown considerable interest in U.S. agricultural assets, among which, the “most valuable and easily transferable property are seeds,” a May research report (pdf) by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC) states.

    Beijing’’s goal is to be able to convert as much American farmland as possible to exclusively provide for China.

    “Now you have secured on that acre, and scale that however many hundreds of 1000s of acres, you’ve secured your own supply chain for your country as the owner of that land, even if it’s on foreign soil,” he said.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/chinas-theft-of-us-agriculture-tech-secrets-is-enormous-national-security-threat-analyst_4546159.html?utm_source=uschinanoe&utm_campaign=uschina-2022-06-22&utm_medium=email&est=N7kOnxGtfPlUVXXLV8200nG5y1qR9oEIzhN6%2BAyidQlyWZjrut%2BjNDQoH19J%2Bp0%3D

    Is the same thing happening here. I suspect it is and we can look at gold kiwifuit as a prime example along with the Dairy Industry.

    Most likely communism in china will destroy any gains over time.
    Again a good read.

  3. A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work.
    One rainy day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror,
    she heard her husband’s car pull into the driveway. ‘Oh my God – Hurry!
    Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My husband’s home early!’
    ‘I can’t jump out the window. It’s raining out there!’
    ‘If my husband catches us in here, he’ll kill us both!’ she replied. ‘He’s got
    a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your problems!’
    So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the
    window! As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly
    discovered he had run right into the middle of the town’s annual marathon,
    so he started running along beside the others, about 300 of them.
    Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in
    as best he could. After a little while a small group of runners who had
    been watching him with some curiosity, jogged closer. Do you always
    run in the nude?’ one asked.
    ‘Oh yes!’ he replied, gasping in air. ‘It feels so wonderfully free!’
    Another runner moved a long side. ‘Do you always run carrying your
    clothes with you under your arm?’
    ‘Oh, yes’ our friend answered breathlessly. ‘That way I can get
    dressed right at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!’
    Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and asked, ‘Do you
    always wear a condom when you run?’
    ‘Nope.. just when it’s raining.

    Have a fun day

        • This fits in with that story.

          An Obituary printed in the London Times
          Posted by Ian Armstrong

          Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
          Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
          Why the early bird gets the worm;
          Life isn’t always fair; and
          Maybe it was my fault.
          Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

          His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.

          Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

          Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

          It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

          Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

          Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

          Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

          Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

          He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
          I Know My Rights
          I Want It Now
          Someone Else Is To Blame
          I’m A Victim
          Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

  9. Looks like that NATO meeting may prove to be disaster for dl. 🙂

    Robert Hunter, U.S. Ambassador to NATO from 1993-1998 :—
    …. One thing is certain for the summit: Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, will make a spirited presentation by video.
    He will underscore the suffering in Ukraine, with graphic pictures; point out that the West is tolerating a war of attrition, limited to Ukraine; and demand more practical military support than the allies will be prepared to provide.
    That will be the emotional high point at Madrid. ….
    .
    ….. It would be far better to postpone the summit rather than risk seeing it fail, as is now likely.
    Bureaucratic inertia is driving the process forward.
    But political leaders, notably President Biden, need to see farther and put off the summit. ….

    https://responsiblestatecraft.org/2022/06/17/this-years-nato-summit-should-be-postponed/
    .
    Seems like a lot of symptoms of European stupidity coming to the fore.
    .
    How will Ardern compete compared to Zelenksyy?
    Will Ardern tell all of Europe that New Zealand can not reduce emmissions to compensate for firing up all those European coal-fired power stations?
    Europe is going to go to war on itself, as previously (I saw) it was Russia that supplied Europe approx 70% of the coal to Europe.
    Lets see Ardern get caught up in that “tar baby”. 🙂

  10. A young man with his pants hanging half off his ass, two gold front teeth, and a half inch thick gold chain around his neck; walked into the local Welfare office to pick up his check.

    He marched up to the counter and said, “Hi. You know, I just hate drawing welfare. I’d really rather have a job. I don’t like taking advantage of the system, getting something for nothing.”

    The social worker behind the counter said “Your timing is excellent. We Just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You will have to drive around in his 2022 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes.”

    “Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You’ll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say but you will also have, as part of your job, the assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20’s and has a rather strong sex drive.”

    The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, “You’re bullshittin’ me!”

    The social worker said, “Yeah, well… you started it.”

  11. One day, the donkey told the tiger, “The grass is blue.”

    The tiger replied, “No, the grass is green.”

    The argument got so heated that the two decided to approach the lion.

    As they approached the lion’s throne, the donkey screamed: “Your highness, isn’t it true that the grass is blue?”

    The lion shrugged and said: “If you believe it is true, then the grass is blue.”

    The donkey screamed: “The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me, and annoys me. Please punish him!”

    “The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence,” said the lion.

    The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, taunting the tiger, “The grass is blue! The grass is blue!”

    The tiger looked up at the lion and asked: “Your majesty, why have you punished me? You know the grass is green.”

    The lion said: “You’ve also known and seen the grass is green.”

    “Then why the punishment?” the tiger asked.

    “The punishment,” said the lion, “has nothing to do with the grass. It’s because a brave, intelligent creature like you would spend your valuable time arguing with an ass. And, on top of that, you came and bothered me with that fool, just to validate something you knew was true.”

    • It’s a timeless lesson, but even more relevant in our own social media-fueled day: .

      Never waste time on arguments that don’t make any sense.

      Some people don’t care about the truth. Others are blinded by ego, hatred, and resentment.

      Ignorance is its own form of punishment. There’s no need for you to waste your time.

      That’s one thing that keeps people from success: arguing with asses.

    I am referring to “The Platform” which you can download the App or listen online, if you already haven’t. While their listening numbers may not yet be up there, they do need you as an audience and participation to succeed and grow.

    Moreover, without the substantial financial support and funding from two individuals Wayne & Chloe Wright of Omokoroa, this balancing of the media books would not have happened.

  20. Cost and timeline of Tasman’s Waimea Dam swells again

    The estimated cost to complete the Waimea Dam in Tasman has increased again – now to $195 million, according to the organisation in charge of it.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/06/23/cost-and-timeline-of-tasmans-waimea-dam-swells-again/

    In April, construction costs were estimated to be $185 million, up from the budget of $105 million when it originally signed off by the Tasman District Council in 2018.

    The timeline for its completion is also being pushed back once more, with Waimea Water telling the Tasman District Council on Wednesday completion was now forecast to be in February next year.

    That’s seven months later than what was expected at the start of this year, and 16 months later than the original plan.

    Last night Mrs C was extremely unwell with severe stomach cramps and dizziness. At about 8.30 I decided to call an ambulance to get her some treatment. Dispatcher told me that they would send one but could take several hours and that if I could get her to the hospital or an emergency clinic it would probably be better. Not being keen on the hospital I took her to the closest after hours emergency in Takapuna, about half an hours drive. Can’t fault the service provided at Shorecare, she got straight in and the doctor was excellent. The medication they provided helped and she improved, but they were unable to diagnose the cause and decided to refer her to North Shore hospital for some further tests. Arriving at NSH was like being in some dystopian movie set. Greeted by people not fully recognisable under all their “protective” garb. To admit her they demanded a RAT test which she refused. We made it clear that neither of us had any covid symptoms and did not need to be tested. However hospital “policy” is that you either test or if not you are placed on a covid ward, with presumably infected people. That makes a lot of sense. In the end Mrs C decided on a third option and I took her home.
    Thankfully today she is much better so couldn’t have been anything too serious.
    It does show that coercion is alive and well in the public health system. I now wish I had asked them how many other diseases that she doesn’t have would they like to test her for? Smallpox, Typhoid, Ebola the list is endless.

  22. Spare a thought for poor ole Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair.
    After arriving in a hotel in Manchester, he went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness.
    The barman nodded and said, “That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary.”
    Somewhat taken aback, O’Leary replied, “That’s very cheap,” and handed over his money.
    “Well, we do try to stay ahead of the competition”, said the barman. “And we are serving free pints every Wednesday from 6 pm until 8 pm. We have the cheapest beer in England”.
    “That is remarkable value”, Michael comments.
    “I see you don’t seem to have a glass, so you’ll probably need one of ours. That will be £3 please.”
    O’Leary scowled, but paid up.
    He took his drink and walked towards a seat. “Ah, you want to sit down?” said the barman. “That’ll be an extra £2. You could have pre-booked the seat, and it would have only cost you £1.”
    “I think you may be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this frame please”.
    Michael attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can’t squeeze in, he complains “Nobody would fit in that little frame”.
    “I’m afraid if you can’t fit in the frame you’ll have to pay an extra surcharge of £4 for your seat sir”.
    O’Leary swore to himself, but paid up. “I see that you have brought your laptop with you” added the barman. “And since that wasn’t pre-booked either, that will be another £3.”
    O’Leary was so incensed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, “This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the manager”.
    “I see you want to use the counter,” says the barman, “that will be £2 please.”
    O’Leary’s face was red with rage. “Do you know who I am?”
    “Of course I do Mr. O’Leary.”
    “I’ve had enough! What sort of a Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!”
    “Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00 am and 9.01am every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free, until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only £1 per second, or part thereof”.
    “I will never use this bar again”.
    “OK sir, but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1.”

  23. What’s going on in Tauranga V2? The digital catbox liner reckons that you lot are not sufficiently sensitive to the petals of the L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ community.

    Some bender is quoted as saying, “I felt unsafe using the men’s toilets. Once I had to leave as they bumped me and threw beer over me, soaking my clothes completely.” It must have been bad as he had to shift his well worn arse & his gender pronoun preferences down to Wellington.

    Another, this time a trainee rug muncher was traumatised by her college insisting that “biological pronouns must be used for students; and the school would approve that their name “aligns with their biological sex”.

    You’re a tough mob up there in God’s holding paddock. 🙂

    • We’re in for a repeat of 2014/2015. Many had carried on spending as they believed the payout to stay at the forcast 8-9bux… there were tears and devestation when it was finalised in march/april and dropped below 5 bux and the following season even worse.
      It may not happen this season but guarantee it will happen in the next year or 2 and dumbarse cockies never learn.

      Also watch the grain price skyrocket, its already horrendous and short supply now with an every higher payout farmers will push it up further… more grain will get planted thats algood but same as a few years ago the dairy payout will crash and there will be a huge glut of grain with no buyers. With the cost of fuel fert and chemical now the outlay to cropping farmers would put a fair few under if the arse fell out of grain price.

  26. Former National MP Maurice Williamson says National Party president Peter Goodfellow’s retirement announcement after nominations for the party’s board had closed reeks of protecting the “old boys network”.

    And Williamson has called for the party to re-open nominations for the National Party board, saying others would have put their names forward had they known earlier.

    Goodfellow announced this morning he would retire as president at the party’s annual conference in August – but still intended to seek re-election as board director.

    There are three spaces on the board as the terms of Goodfellow, Rachel Bird and Sir Graeme Harrison end, but all three said they were seeking re-election. No other names were put forward by the time nominations closed on June 21. The president is elected by the board after the party’s membership elects the board members.

    New Orleans Startup Turns Glass Into Sand—And They’ve Recycled 2 Million Pounds in 2 Years
    BY Anna Mason TIMEApril 18, 2022 PRINT

    A startup company in New Orleans has been making headlines for its genius approach to recycling glass into sand.

    After it comes out of the machine, it’s then sifted into different sizes so that it’s more uniform.

    “Each of those sizes can be used for different things, so the smaller stuff is good for sandblasting and the coarse sand is good for coastal restoration,” she explained. “Gravel is good for, like, rain gardens and making new glass pieces and things like that.”

    They currently have five different sizes of sand and almost six different color choices.

  28. GOP Lawmaker Seeks to Have Fentanyl Designated as Weapon of Mass Destruction
    By Hannah Ng
    June 19, 2022 Updated: June 19, 2022
    Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) on June 13 introduced a bill that seeks to label the synthetic opioid fentanyl as a weapon of mass destruction (WMD).

    The “Fentanyl is a WMD Act” would, if enacted, instruct the assistant secretary for the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office within the Department of Homeland Security to treat the deadly drug as a WMD.

    The synthetic opioid, which is 100 more potent than morphine, would then be put under the oversight of several agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the Department of Defense.

    Those agencies would join together in the concerted effort to issue the necessary administrative directive to eliminate the threat from this deadly substance, according to a press release from Boebert’s office.
    https://www.theepochtimes.com/gop-lawmaker-seeks-to-have-fentanyl-designated-as-weapon-of-mass-destruction_4543465.html?utm_source=uschinanoe&utm_campaign=uschina-2022-06-20&utm_medium=email&est=gyCCHMYzidAJr2CBuwW%2FoZKz5e%2BaBGW9ba84F7to5WOBYzSItUQrq3ObzmyEEEE%3D

    reliminary data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that fentanyl was involved in 77 percent of overdose deaths in the United States in 2021, accounting for about 71,000 deaths.

    A report from the District of Colorado U.S. Attorney’s Office said state law enforcement has seized over 2 million dosage units of synthetic opioids over the first five months of 2022, an increase of 20 percent compared to the entire year of 2021.

  29. Maori is a small world ////

    Politicians give their take on Nanaia Mahuta’s family member appointments
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/06/politicians-give-their-take-on-nanaia-mahuta-s-family-member-appointments.html

    Opposition parties have accused Mahuta of a lack of transparency, but one former National Minister said his old party has a history of giving family members of ministers public sector jobs – so why the double standard?

    Mahuta’s whanau is big, influential and dedicated to Māoridom, which means a lot of declaring conflicts of interest as a Government minister.

    “It’s very hard in the Māori world because everybody’s connected, related, friends. It’s a small world, so we have to be extra careful,” said Minister for Māori Development Willie Jackson.

    There are some who contend Mahuta hasn’t been careful enough.

  30. Another fake story by a scammer who makes money from enslaving people in debt servitude and usary. These parasites contribute nothing to society and should be purged.

    This is the worse time to buy. Interest rates are rising and prices falling, but have only just begun to fall. So it’s massive debt and high interest. For a depreciating asset.

    These Ponzi schemes need to end.
