  1. When are the female voter going to wake up if your son or daughter lied to you what do you do,if was anything like what happened with my two daughters they got punished so why are you sending a different message with our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Politicians bend the truth but to lie your arse off over sexual assaults or rape is a step to far and shut down Journalists that suggest the perpetrator is from your office is beyond belief.

    • I can state that I have been identifying ardern as a liar since the day after her “appointment” by “what’s in it for wynston”. I have always been able to spot a bullshitter and she was that from day 1.

      • I totally agree.
        All that moving around, head nodding, not looking people in the eye, not answering questions.
        Her parents should have named her Bobbi!

        She is a 75% level bullshitter.
        That is high.
        The media filth are massively complaint for allowing this to run on for the 2 years since she began as Labour Leader.

      Once again she shows she doesn’t give a toss that she is operating in a Party that tries to close down workers /employees/fellow citizens reporting abuse.

    • So if it matters, but is not an employment matter but a party matter.
      Why is this not a police matter and getting full sunlight instead of being all hushed up.
      Even her hushed primary teacher tone downplays what was a criminal act.
      Is the poo stacked too high next to this dipshit PM?

  2. An interesting array of videos and reports, 14 links to check on, where the black community seemed to fit right in and have no worry or fear about the police.
    The one where it “jackie chan” is mentioned does not work.

    Aggressive contempt for police officers undermines the Left’s argument that minority communities are terrified of law enforcement.

    Pretty well the same as in NZ? lol.
    Not an easy job, and there does seem to be a system to make the job more difficult.

    • “The law is for thee, not for me.”
      – the all politician creed.

      It’s interesting that the NZ media are no longer so willing to be charmed by Ardern after her Australian tour was a flop.

      Ardern was Labour’s greatest asset. She may be turning into their greatest liability.

      • I spoke with a contact in the Media just the other day-There is definite ill feeling toward Ardern for barking orders at them and dictating what they can and can’t report.
        My contact confirms though that Fairfax/Stuff will continue to gush over her as they are desperately hoping for a Govt bailout..

        • She transformed Labour from 20% and falling political party into one routinely in the 40%. I suspect before long she’ll return Labour back to those percentages: once the general public get cold feet not even a royal wedding will save her.

          Until her blunder in Australia, it’s not a fall I had predicted.

    • Topography needs to be considered, adding in seismic potential along with volcanic risk would have been a reasonable part of the point made by Ms Clarke. The country is short of potable water, has waste water disposal issues now and our infrastructure is not adequate. This country is not readily suitable for the equivalent of the invaders Europe has been subjected to by politicians.

  3. Feminists have always had an inferiority complex with pretty women.

    Miss Universe was a “meat market” until it was pointed out to them that women were the vast majority of viewers – not men.

    Feminists have been trying to destroy the pretty women careers for decades. They have succeeded with the grid girls.

The NZ First spokesperson on Abortion gave Little the ok but people like you that have said they will vote NZ First at the 2020 election decided they want a referendum on the subject ,hence Winston pulled his support.

        • Your comment ‘seemed a little confused’ illustrates the high level of commenters on this blog.

          When we disagree with each other we almost invariably either do so either with humour or respectfully answering to illustrate our points and I don’t think I have ever read any insulting or belittling of each other here at all.

          I would love to see some genuine left wing commenters join this blog and see them engaged in fact based* respectful debate. We might all learn from each other!

          Cheers

          She only has to announce then they will back off.
          Then in 3-4 months she claims a miscarriage.

    • I suspect she will get a thrashing pretty much until the election. Hopefully it will highlight the weaknesses to the masses. She performs very badly under pressure, my observation – she is getting worse. Look at her last Mike Hosking interview, she may as well have not bothered to show up, didn’t answer any questions, lots of stammering, never seen a PM this bad with him before – ever.

        Now they have recovered again (NZ2168 buy price) and I’m enjoying watching the ride. It’s interesting when you have a little skin in the game.

  6. With another dozen Labour women chucked on the heap with the other damaged sex aids the Party may need to hire replacements. To this end I’ve jotted down the outline of the likely advertisement.

    WANTED TO HIRE

    Women or trans (we’re not really fussy) to work in a team alongside sexual deviants committed to making democracy redundant. A willingness to be used, abused, fucked & felt up at whim is necessary.

    Free booze, staff discount lawnmowers & a taxpayer funded salary.

  7. I used to work with a young man who had Tourettes syndrome and the mental capacity of a 7-year old. He’d blurt out stuff like “F*ck you boss” 20 times a day, but he showed up on time every day, and worked his butt off doing the “custodial duties.” He was one of the most popular employees in the joint. If that guy could keep a steady job, anyone can.

    • If that guy could keep a steady job, anyone can.

      Mama Bear comes from a poor family. Urban, impoverished Chinese level of poor – so a small apartment the whole family squeezes into, a bathroom shared with the building, coal rations for heating and meat is what you can catch outside or you get the fatty off-cuts the party leaders allow you to have. Her experiences growing up is frightening for how deprived they were of things we’d take for granted, all thanks to Socialism’s older brother.

      Her parents both came from wealthy landowner families. Her maternal grandfather owned villages, factories and the land around them. But once Mao started in on the rich, they took the safest route and gifted it all to the Comrades (Hey Ardern!) and thus, poor family. Like so many others of the time.

      She studied hard, worked hard and pulled herself out of that level of poverty and into a new life. Not a wealthy one, but a comfortable one she built for herself. I love that woman to bits for her strength and her character and yes, her obstinacy. And a lot of other reasons, but never mind.

      So why the long story?

      Last night on TV there was something on about either protesters, or land reclamation or something like that showcasing the great, unwashed poor again. And she snorted derisively next to me, making a comment to the effect of: “Useless people” My very much teenage daughter rolled her eyes at her stepmom when she heard that, but I called her on it and asked why. “Mama Bear is being rude, those people had no choice in where they were born”.

      Let’s just say she got a very in-depth lecture about how it’s not where you were born. If people can rise above their circumstances in a screwed up, Communist oppressed state like China – what bloody excuse do they have in New Zealand where we have public healthcare, free education through to (almost) all of Tertiary level and so much (needless) government support?

      They are, for the greater part, useless people.

      • Well said Pascal; when I was a kid many of the students at my school were Vietnamese and Koreans whose parents had been given asylum after those respective wars. They never clowned around in class, studied hard (their parents would have crucified them for bad grades) and were the top performers in every subject. Their families were well aware of how lucky they were to get a decent education in the States. Just imagine if Maori and Islanders had that sort of ethic? Nevermind.

        Of course Mao was from a comfortable middle class family.
        It is always those that screw it up.
        Not the downtrodden. They know better.

        We see the current brigade from comfortable middle class like Ardern and Trudeau that try to change things and screw it up.
        Other wanabees are the likes of Bill Shorten, Jeremy Corbyn and Killary Rodham Clinton.

          John Key came from a State house and worked his way to wealth. Yet he’s derided by the Left. Jacinda Ardern who’s biggest achievements are working in a fish and chips shop and having a baby is lauded as the leader of the ages.

Then when you go to save your document or whatever, after you use command S, select the new folder you named and hit the blue button. (always in the bottom right of your save window. You can leave the folders you use the most on your desktop. You can put as many folders as you need. They can be folders in folders. The thing I like about using Mac’s is if you think you can do it,then go ahead and do it.

  9. Cambodia, former deputy leader of Khmer Rouge dies

    “After seizing control of Cambodia in 1975, the Maoist Khmer Rouge attempted to force the country back to the Middle Ages.

    Millions died from starvation, disease, overwork and execution – almost a quarter of the population. Nuon Chea was one of the ideological architects of this Year Zero policy.”

Surely crimes of such concern cannot be dealt with in-house by the Labour Party? Does it need one of the many complainants to make a complaint directly to the police for them to begin a criminal investigation?

  12. Perhaps Australia managed to get all the houses built for the new citizens?

    The One Nation leader leader in June tweeted that foreigners had made up the bulk of Australia’s population growth, after Prime Minister Scott Morrison had vowed to trim net immigration levels.

    ‘The Australian population grew by 400,000 people last year,’ she said.

    ‘The majority of this came from overseas migration.

    Pauline Hanson’s views on immigration have been endorsed by an unlikely media outlet – the ABC (pictured is the One Nation leader in the Senate with her party colleague Malcolm Roberts)

    ‘Next time Morrison says the Liberals are cutting immigration remember it is just a marketing ploy.

    ‘Their budget is built off mass migration.’

    The ABC has now agreed with Senator Hanson, with the RMIT/ABC Fact Check declaring her comments were ‘close to the mark’.

    NZ will be sort of similiar, and it seems to be a way of politicians in seeking to hold power.
    Doubt that improves the GDP per person?

  13. A thought for the day.

    Michael Spindler was the CEO of Apple (Computers) from Oct 1993 to Feb 1996.
    An extract from his wiki:
    On October 15, 1993, Spindler was chosen to take over as Apple’s CEO when John Sculley was ousted by the board of directors. Spindler presided over several successful projects, such as the introduction of the PowerPC, as well as some major failures, including the Newton and the Copland operating system.
    Spindler was nicknamed “Diesel” due to his operational management inside Apple.

    >>He was known to have frequent anxiety attacks and hide under his office desk while working, which did not bode well for Apple’s corporate environment.

    Does this last sentence remind you of anyone ….like the SLG?

    • Apart from keeping work pressure to a minimum a huge mortgage is enough to affect anyone with a job on the line. Just as well the mortgage rates are so low.

      Sometimes the police arrest large numbers of people in raids.
      Why are there so many?
      Surley they should all get jobs at the Warehouse or in home care.

      An indication of the key ingredients origins perhaps?

      Gratitude to the real police, for keeping that poison off our streets. Thank you.

      There are already too many numpties getting free rehab… and a hug of course.

      • ……”There are already too many numpties getting free rehab”……

        If they genuinely want to get off the stuff then “free rehab” is exactly what they should be offered. The vast majority of low end suppliers are addicts themselves.

        The human garbage the cops had arrested in WG’s link are the enablers spreading the misery. For them no punishment could be too harsh.

    • …..” Everyone who wants to use meth will continue to do so”……

      Same as all addictions Kea. Until someone wants to give up no number or manner of interventions will make a blind bit of difference. Tobacco, alcohol, meth, heroin……all can be beaten depending on attitude.

      I was a pisshead & it took me three admissions to rehab before I got on the wagon & stayed there. I’d hate to see others denied the same chance.

  15. Frederick II, the eighteenth-century king of Prussia, fancied
    himself an enlightened monarch, and in some respects he
    was. On one occasion he is supposed to have interested
    himself in conditions in the Berlin prison and was escorted
    through it so that he might speak to the prisoners. One after
    the other, the prisoners fell to their knees before him,
    bewailing their lot and, predictably, protesting their utter
    innocence of all charges that had been brought against them.

    Only one prisoner remained silent, and finally Frederick’s
    curiosity was aroused.
    “You,” he called. “You there.”

    The prisoner looked up. “Yes, Your Majesty?”

    “Why are you here?”

    “Armed robbery, Your Majesty.”

    “And are you guilty?”

    “Entirely guilty, Your Majesty. I deserve my punishment.”

    At this Frederick rapped his cane sharply on the ground and
    said, “Warden, release this guilty wretch at once. I will not
    have him here in jail, where, by example, he will corrupt
    all the splendid innocent people who occupy it.”

  17. City Councillors claim Green Party agreement used as leverage to get agreement on Let’s Get Wellington Moving
    Collette Devlin18:56, Aug 07 2019

    The Green Party confidence and supply agreement would have been put in jeopardy if a watered down Let’s Get Wellington Moving wasn’t accepted, city councillors claim.

    A number of Wellington City Councillors have revealed to Stuff the behind-the-scenes conversations that pushed the mass transport deal over the line in council chambers.

    It comes as the Chief Ombudsman investigates Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter’s ongoing refusall to release a letter relating to Wellington’s transport plans.

  18. JAG refuses to release letter to Phil Twyford, minister of transport
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/08/julie-anne-genter-s-justification-for-refusing-to-release-letter-to-phil-twyford.html

    “National MPs are calling for the release of the letter over concerns the Greens influenced a decision to delay the proposed second Mt Victoria tunnel.

    Genter, a Green MP and the Associate Minister of Transport, has confirmed she wrote a letter to Transport Minister Phil Twyford on 26 March about the Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) transport package.”

    “Obviously she and Phil Twyford have something to hide, otherwise they would have released the letter by now,” Willis said on Tuesday.
