      • The cops have been accused of using a gate to beat Pania Newton ‘Hollywood’!
        Pania says, “you’ll be pleased to know I’m alright.”

        She is totally self-absorbed in her self-promotion. If Cindy does visit Ihumatao it will be the battle of who is the biggest narcissist Cindy or Pania

            • Yep, Labour should really start looking after her. You know like have her working reduced hours, overseas shopping trips, holidays in the sun, visiting kindies.
              They really, really need to look after her, because she is the Labour party.
              Without her they are history. Nine hole years sitting on their arse in opposition
              Who else could front the COL except kind uncle Whinestone!

  1. NZ household debt is at 164%. The fake rich trying to keep up with the Jones’. NZ household debt is higher than during the 2008 GFC. Holidays and material possessions on the credit card or slap it on the mortgage.

    The economy is slowing, the OCR is likely to be cut, unemployment is likely to rise. Are people prepared for another rececession. It’s going to get messy.

      I disagree with PN, but she is not a lady to be fobbed off with and earnest face and talk of kindness.
      There is not a chance of a snowflake in Hades that um-er-ah Ardern will go anywhere near Ihumatao.

  2. It has taken over a year to get people to forget about Labours summer Camp sexual assault but it appears to be rife in Labour circles.

    Now you have Twyford caught out telling lies about the bulling and sexual comments to the CAA and Jacinda again not wanting to know about a staffer and the sexual content.

    • Wow,

      “However, Newstalk ZB political reporter Barry Soper said the allegations involved not only sexual assault but rape, offers to pay for sex and that there were 12 alleged complainants.

      “What they’re saying is, the party is telling them not to comment. They say people incredibly high up are on the side of the accused in the Beehive.”

      Soper said those allegedly affected were “frightened” of talking to the media as they claimed they would have their support withdrawn if they spoke out.

      “They talked about not just sexual assault but rape, they said that this person worked in the Beehive for two years, he was offering promotions for sex. They said there was a huge power imbalance, they said the person was well known to Jacinda Ardern and Grant Robertson.

      “They said one victim was hospitalised, two were still working at Parliament, six others were junior party members and there were 12 victims in all.”

      • Still nothing obvious being reported on Stuff. I got into shit on KB for publishing all the e mails associated with Stuff so that people could e mail their disgust. I won’t make the same mistake here as I don’t want to be pinged for “Doxxing”. However, I would suggest emailing the twats there and asking them about the deafening silence.

          • From Wikipedia. Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents)[1] or doxxing[2][3] is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting private or identifying information (especially personally identifying information) about an individual or organization.[3][4][5][6][7][8]

            The methods employed to acquire this information include searching publicly available databases and social media websites (like Facebook), hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to Internet vigilantism and hacktivism.

            Doxing may be carried out for various reasons, including to aid law enforcement, business analysis, risk analytics, extortion, coercion, inflicting harm, harassment, online shaming, and vigilante justice.

            However, since most of the e mails I posted are probably available online I don’t think I could be guilty of doxxing, but I didn’t want to get further censure from DPF. It is his blog.

            This program is quite useful Its just a chrome extension. You select a website like stuff, hit the snovio icon and any e mails associated with the site pop up. Try it with the Labour website! I discovered Jacinda has three e mails ( I suppose one for Jethro, one for Shrobeck, and one for Hoskings….)
            ardern@labour.org.nz

  5. On Hoskings Ardern did not answer one question – its all about “work” and conversations and announcements coming later.
    This makes her look useless.
    But as far as I am concerned its good as I don’t want the COL to wreck our country even more.

    • Our bi-cultural society was not integrating Maori culture of “family” and imposing European standards. Is that what you mean?

      Surely if family/whanau is so important, held up as a sacred ‘taonga’ then those musing about Maori culture of “family” would have something strong to say about all the moko killed by feral whanau. Nothing, nada, zero, zilch, dismissive of any concerns. Guess that is maori ‘culture’.

      • Yep, she’s trying to deflect from the fact that the Labour Party has a sex-abuse culture and lacks the processes to deal with predators.

        She can’t ignore the fact that She has known about this particular issue for quite some time.

        She’s a senior member of the Labour Party and she’s done bugga-all to safe-guard the well-being of those alleging abuse/bullying.

        • Cindy would undoubtedly have been consulted about setting aside the employment issues the abuse of his position involves. Much easier to say it is a ‘pardy issue’ for the men in grey suits to deal with away from the cameras and far away from Cindy.

  11. Shamelessly stolen from another blog

    Mike Hosking: Do you want to read some texts out?
    Ouch!
    Jacinda not one real answer
    What does she know?
    Any chance of a straight answer to a straight question?
    Umm umm Mike umm down the track after we have talked more I’ll have umm a meeting and umm and I’ll umm go overseas again
    HI Mike. I like Jacinda but clearly she is in over her head
    She just does not know how to answer a question or take any accountability for her Governments performance.
    Mike. Does she know anything. Get someone on who answers the questions rather than Jacinda
    Wow never heard an interview before with so many non-answers
    Wow PM Jacinda Ardern managed to not answer all 20 questions?
    All conversations no decisions
    Can she ever answer a question rather than dodge around everything?
    So many questions so many bloody answers what a waste of time
    Mike you couldn’t ask Jacinda about the coalition agreement because the most open and transparent
    Government wouldn’t release it!
    Thanks Mike another great interview with the PM (Really?)
    We rely on you to pull her up on issues but as usual she avoided direct answers and smiled her way through it
    Hi Mike. All discussion not discussion
    Unbelievable mismanagement Mike blab la bla
    Bla blab la bla conversation, obfuscation. She is like a possum in your headlights

  16. Major COL squabbles – NZF blindsides Labour with an talk of an abortion referendum
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12256174

    “The bill went through extensive talks with NZ First before being announced to improve its chances of passing, but MP Clayton Mitchell on Tuesday told reporters the party was likely to call for a referendum.

    “We’ve had a good discussion about that at the moment and we’re working through it but it’s something NZ First believes should probably be a binding referendum issue,” he said.

    That came after NZ First MP and Minister Tracey Martin earlier in the day told Radio NZ there were no plans for a referendum – and after a meeting of the party’s caucus.”

  18. Latest email from Simon Bridges:

    We are freshly back for our National Conference held in Christchurch. It was an inspiring event. Around 650 delegates spent the weekend focusing on what matters to New Zealanders. What matters is you.
    Life-saving drugs

    Life-saving Drugs
    At the conference I announced a policy which would invest an extra $200 million over four years for PHARMAC to fund cancers drugs.

    Cancer is the biggest cause of death in New Zealand. It doesn’t discriminate and most New Zealanders have a story of loved ones who have been affected by cancer.

    Under this government we are seeing New Zealanders packing up their lives and going to other countries for cancer treatment. New Zealanders shouldn’t have to mortgage their houses, set up a Givealittle page or take out massive loans to be able to afford medicines which are funded in other countries.

    We have also committed to introducing a National Cancer Agency to deliver better diagnoses, better access and better treatment for cancer sufferers across New Zealand. This will ensure that your address won’t affect your prognosis. We should have a health system that is fair for everyone, regardless of your postcode.

    The Government is spending billions of dollars on fees-free tertiary education, on working groups and on a slush fund for NZ First. It should be doing more to fund life-saving drugs. It doesn’t have its priorities right.

    Transport tactics
    I receive constant feedback about transport. Kiwis are concerned with the lack of investment into our roading networks. New Zealanders are frustrated by longer commuting times and have concerns around safety.

    This Government hasn’t built a single new road. A few rumble strips and reducing the speed limit isn’t a plan. Slower speeds will isolate regional areas like Tauranga and put a handbrake on our strong local export sector.

    The Government is finding creative ways of introducing taxes as ‘small fees’. Their recent Clean Car Plan could cost New Zealanders an extra $6000 on their next car purchase. I would hardly call this a ‘small fee’.

    The Government is planning to hike the price of higher-emission vehicles and in the process it will pocket almost half a billion dollars in new taxes.

    Setting aside the big numbers, the true cost here is to Mums and Dads with three kids buying a used seven-seater van, or a farmer or tradie buying their next work vehicle.

    I have been a strong advocate for electric vehicles and I have owned two. When I was the Minister for Transport, National’s policies saw the number or EVs on our roads jump from 1406 in May 2016 to 14,867 in June 2019.

    National believes electric vehicles are the future and we need to incentivise people to buy them, not penalise hardworking New Zealanders.
    Young talent in the House

    It was great to welcome the enthusiastic group of young people for Youth Parliament recently. I was particularly proud of my Youth MP, Ben Sokimi. We catch-up in Tauranga and it was fantastic to give him an insight into how Parliament works.

    He says his highlights included the caucus meeting where he got to meet with MPs, and the legislative debate where he was able to get a taste of how rowdy it can get in the House. You did us proud Ben and I know we will be seeing more of you in the future.

    Car-asmatic Team
    I had a fun afternoon visiting the team from Turners Tauranga branch. They won the top regional branch for 2018, top leadership, and customer service awards. They have a real passion for cars.

    As I continue to visit local businesses I am constantly seeing how strong our business culture is in Tauranga. Our region has many businesses that are being awarded nationally for their successes.

    With the school holidays now well behind us we enter the final few months of the year. The National conference has us all fired up. We have the policies to create a better New Zealand. We know it’s all about you.

    Regards

    • Is that a ledder as MP for Tauranga or as Leader of National because much of it is about Tauranga?

      Soimon Says:
      “EVs on our roads jump from 1406 in May 2016 to 14,867 in June 2019.”
      He really can’t claim these numbers for Labour Lite as more than half the period was under the COL.
      He simply opens himself up to Labour blaming Labour lite for problems that run past Sep 2017.
      You can’t have it both ways.

      Bridges is very politically naive.
      I had suspected his outburst on – I think it was John Campbell – a few years ago was a sign of immaturity.
      Basically it was , ‘why won’t you big people listen to me, Oi’m important too’.
      Now I am convinced it was, and remains, a reflection of his poor presentation skills.
      He was a government lawyer in provincial NZ before Parliament. That is a far cry from a making partner in a big firm at 35 yo.
      If that is the best Labour Lite lite can offer then Big Sister Labour will still rule after 2020.

      I imagine he is a decent enough bloke and well meaning (as much as poli can be) but he is not the one with the ready set concrete to take the country back after the current mess has run its course.

      Soimon also says
      “National believes electric vehicles are the future”
      Well maybe 20 years out but not today. This is their problem. They live in the future while people have mortgage payments, grocery shopping, power bills and health issues today.
      The clean rivers and pest free stuff was all in Avatar land > sometime in the future.
      Unobtainium.

      Grading for Soimon. 3/10.

    • They won’t need them WG. Labour’s 2017 manifesto stated:

      “Increase the number of sworn police officers by 1,000 over three years. We will provide funding to increase police numbers in each year, with a total increase of a 1,000 extra Police Officers in of our first term. This will bring the total number of Police Officers to 10,000, which will bring the police to population ratio back below 1 to 500 •

      Support these additional Police Officers with extra funding for additional support staff, training, and resources they need to do the job•

      Significantly increase community police numbers to the point where the majority of the 1,000 extra police promised by Labour will move into community policing roles.”

      Unless of course, this was another dose of unicorn farts & magic.

Similarly their claim of being the “most transparent’ obviously means the complete opposite. We are treated like mushrooms = kept in the dark and fed bullsh*t. ?

  21. Just received this comment from a concerned user;

    A big shout out to NZ Police’s Peaceful Protest

    Last night, while protecting the property rights of New Zealanders at Ihumatao, NZ Police were set upon by Maori enforcers led by Pania Nelson. Nelson reported, in a description of an event known in former days as a ‘Maradona’, that she was knocked to the ground by Police after attempting to go to the aid of minors. These minors were part of an aggressive mass movement over the property boundary formally established as the Police line. Newton claimed that this mass trespass had been agreed upon by Police, an obviously fraudulent statement given the instant and unreserved reaction of Police in the event.

    Newton claimed that she was ‘confused’ by the Police reaction to her peaceful protest. Her ‘confusion’ has been a continual theme during the stand off, which, given that she was a law student and really should understand such things, has frankly fooled nobody, in the same way that no one believes a naughty child with ice cream all over her face when she says ‘It wasn’t me’. Doubts may be cast on her claim of ‘peaceful’ methods, simply by drawing on the dictionary definition of ‘peaceful’. While the Police stood their ground, Maori activists pushed through them in an aggressive manner. This process, where one body of people stays still while the other tries to force their way through them, is a textbook demonstration of aggression (activists) and passive resistance (Police).

    In a statement to press somehow leaked out between blatently biased and racially-selective reporting, the spokeswoman for Police told of how proud she was of her men and women, who have remained professional despite being ‘abused, pushed and even spat on’.

    I believe the people of New Zealand owe the brave policemen and women, standing out in a muddy paddock in some absolutely shit awful weather, being spat on and abused, deserve a big thank you and a fridge full of beer for their efforts.
