    Royalty, rich-listers and private jets, inside the resurgent NZ luxury tourism market
    9 Jul, 2022 04:05 PM
    Meanwhile, the owner of Queenstown’s new luxury hotel, The Carlin, has given the Herald on Sunday an exclusive look behind the curtain of how international royalty and Kiwi rich-listers are spending their southern sojourns.

    Ground was broken in 2019 on developer Kevin Carlin’s namesake hotel terraced into the hills just above central Queenstown.

    Bad timing, the veteran US-born developer and longtime Queenstown resident admits.

    “I put my blood, sweat and every dollar into this project, and went over budget by millions due to the pandemic.

  2. And it’s raining again. It’s just a fucking climate crisis///// Bet those cows are making a mess pugging up the paddocks, and the greens will be out measuring the foot prints of the cows. Life aye? Have a beautiful day and FFFFJA and all those others in Vikings post and a good few others as well. I got an email from David Seymour asking for money, I had told them in no uncertain words that I did not wish to be involved with Act while he was leader some time ago when he started on about the jab, he must be scrambling for $$$$ as they seem to have me back on the list.

      • Who is the alternative party to vote for then? Act may not be 100% perfect but I believe they are the best of the current bunch. Matt King, unfortunately, will not get much of a look in this time around but I believe he will hit his straps in time for the one after. ACT/DemocracyNZ ..near perfect combo.
        National..Labour Lite, pfft.
        Labour..ppfft.
        Greens..pfffffft.
        Poo skin party..ppffffttttttt.

    • Lizzie last week in was getting extremely worried this climate change/global warming crap was actually real. Here in southland mid winter we had 3 yes 3 consecutive days of sunshine and mild temps with only one of those slightly frosty.
      But dont worry it was short lived and continued raining, hailing and blowing its tits off, false alarm.

  3. This is going to be a hugely expensive white elephant as has been everything Labour has touched. The estimated cost for Onslow is $4 Billion but already these costs are estimated to soar. And that does not even cover the costs of the Transmission infrastructure which does at this point, not seem to have been taken into account.

    It would be better to build to build small dams on the Clutha below Roxburgh than this untried experiment.

    But what my grizzle is, where is National and Luxon or ACT crtiquing this proposal. The silence from them is deafening.

    • I have heard that the also need to build a small lake at river level ,as a pumping up pond for when river flow is low but it is sunny with the wind blowing creating the surplus energy that needs stored . I bet it not in costing yet.

    • Its at the wrong end of the bloody country!

      They say its going to be filled via excess wind generation etc but in reality that will take many years on just wind power alone, theyll end up draining the other hydro lakes to fill inefficiently fill onslow then claim a massive hydro shortage and prove that onslow was needed and it saved us all.

      The transmission lines need to get to twizel, then the next constraint is the cable accross cook straight. If this bird brained idea is to compensate for huntly being decommissioned then the north island best prepare for massive blackouts.

    • [1] The ones that are fizzing at the bung in promoting it, are only doing so because contrary to their hyperbole statements, they DON’T understand the science, the inefficiencies, the viable alternatives, or the fact that it is simple re-arranging the deck chairs on the energy Titanic.

      [2] It is long term energy generation we are short on, not 50% efficient energy storage, as well as short term peak generation.

      [3] The pump hydro solution can run far higher than 50% but in the hands of incompetent fools who are skewing the energy market, by subsidising electric cars, I sincerely doubt it.

      [4] While you are building up long term energy production facilities, short term peak can be taken care of by use of gas, which has been demonised along with coal.

      [5] This government has no viable long term energy strategy. A statesmen thinks about the next the next generation. A politician thinks about the next election and what they needs to promise and bribe to get re-elected.

      [6] Instead of pushing and subsidising electric cars, DL and Shaw should be advancing energy generation and removing restrictive controls off the energy market that stifle advancement and progress. Shaw, as a non driver and car hater, knows nothing of cars. Getting advice from him on cars, would be akin to getting marital and relationship advice from Skynet.

      [7] I’m all for electric cars, but promoting and subsidising it while restricting electricity production is pure idiocy. Increasing uptake of electric cars through subsidies will wipe out the excess electricity required for energy storage.

      Don’t get me wrong, Lake Onslow will work, but at what cost, and at what efficiency? The time, energy, and money invested in such a scheme would be better spent keeping the gas fields and exploration alive while building new generation capacity. Lake Onslow will cost at least four times current projected costs, take at least three times longer to complete, and work at much lower efficiency than expected.

      It is not only about the technology, but those managing it. Decent managers would have never subsidised electric cars, banned new gas exploration on a whim, or joined up to snake oil zero carbon Ponzi schemes.

    Nowhere; you won’t hear a peep from them because, being supporters of the NWO/ WEF et al, they are (and always will be) in total agreement with EVERYTHING that dl does.

    Any ‘squeak’ that they make will / is only intended to pacify the locals (‘Smoke and mirrors’ writ large).

    Same game, same teams, same intended (and pre-programmed) end result, and with the participants just wearing slightly-different colours.

  6. In this whole horrible COVID debacle, the only institution in New Zealand which has emerged unscathed, is the Office of the Auditor General.

    It was the Auditor General who on his own instigation, sent his staff to check on the supplies of PPE held by the medical autocracy, and confirmed that the medical staff were indeed telling the truth, and that Ardern and Bloomfield were lying, and knew they were lying.

    Rissole is a former contract accountant and employee of the Auditor General of NZ and a former contract accountant to the Auditor General of the Northern Territory.

    It is my Australian experience that was critical in my understanding of the panic. I was the auditor for the entire NT Dept of Health. The annual budget for this department exceeded 1 billion AUD. In order to perform my tasks I had to work in various parts of the Territory and its hospitals.

    In essence, it was my job to disbelieve EACH AND EVERY SINGLE NUMBER AND EACH AND EVERY STATEMENT made by staff as ‘in GOD we Trust, you MATE get audited’!

    There was rarely trouble. If there was I had the same authority to demand information as an Australian cabinet minister!

    We were subject to Federal Police clearance for our appointments. My qualifications were a BCom and MCom in Accounting from University of Auckland. The auditees were an amiable lot. Fell in love with a Greek lass who worked in the Darwin Health area.

    So I analysed the data when COVID ‘hit’ in March 2020 (coinciding with the build up to the US election) and it was immediately apparent that COVID was a false panic.

    Events since March 2020 have all been predicted, including the possibility of looming hyper-inflation. MV = PT old chap 🙂

    [Forwarded from Voices For Freedom]
    🎈Trial balloon incoming:

    They want all our kids masked in school. They want us kept in perpetual fear. 😷😨

    There are many things we can do to combat this war of propaganda. 💪🏽

    The most powerful is your voice: Stand up. Speak out. Let people know the emperor has no clothes. 🗣👉🏽

    “Kvalsvig is among experts calling for a Covid Action Plan for Schools as an “urgent” intervention to address the infection risks to students, staff, and their whānau to protect children’s access to education.

    Baker says the consequences of getting our response right or wrong are significant: high rates of transmission and infection will mean more deaths, more long-term health impacts, and continued strain on the health sector.

    So what’s to be done?

    Kvalsvig says it won’t make much difference which traffic light setting Aotearoa is in: the system is heavily vaccine-dependent and doesn’t include additional protections that are needed “right now”.

    Instead, she’s advocating for an upgraded and revised alert level system – focusing on preventing viral spread without needing to use lockdowns, including ensuring food security for low-income households and enabling people to stay home when unwell.

    In the absence of that, Kvalsvig says it’s not too late for Aotearoa to put a “high suppression” strategy in place for winter 2022 – to prevent the spread of Covid, influenza and other seasonal infections.

    Universal mask use indoors over winter would make a difference right away, she says.

    Baker says we need a clear strategy on what we want to achieve as a country, and buy-in from society to “normalise a new normal”.

    Health experts say increased mask use would help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Aotearoa.
    There have been revolutions in public health throughout history: not drinking water contaminated with sewage, or doctors washing their hands before surgery.

    “Now we need a new revolution in the air that we share.”

    Rather than imposing new restrictions, Baker says we need a cultural shift in the way we think and act. One based on being considerate and protecting those vulnerable around us, rather than because the Government says so.

    Decades ago, people would joke about having ‘one for the road’. Today, drink-driving is considered abhorrent. Our attitude to masking – using high-quality, respirator-style masks, specifically – needs to follow suit, Baker says.

    “You get in a car, and put on your safety belt. You go outside, you put on sunscreen. If you go to any indoor event, you put on a mask. It won’t be forever, but we will have to for the foreseeable future.”

About half of the US population reads at grade seven level or below – how’s that going to work with some complicated weapon’s instruction manual? About a third are rated as obese (the rate’s doubled in a quarter century). Not likely bound for the infantry and tank hatches should probably be made bigger.

        • When I first came across some organic fruit growers I was intrigued but I went to get some stonefruit off one and walked through his orchard.
          the peach and nectarine trees had reddish leaves and looked sick.So much spraying with lime sulphur and copper.
          Copper accumulation has also been apparent in soils where organic growing takes place .
          Conventional growing is difficult but we have sprays that have been subjected to exhaustive testing for safety and they are necessary to combat the weather and pests and diseases.
          If we are forced into organic growing we will end up like Sri Lanka.

    “How are you grandpa?” He asks.
    “Feeling fine.” Says the old man.

    “Terrific, wonderful menus.”
    “And the nursing?”
    “Just couldn’t be better. These young nurses really take care of you.”
    “What about sleeping? Do you sleep okay?”
    “No problem at all, nine hours solid every night. At 10 o’clock they bring me a cup of hot chocolate and a Viagra tablet and that’s it. I go out like a light.”
    The grandson is puzzled and a little alarmed by this, so he rushes off to question the Nurse in charge.
    “What are you people doing?” He asks. “I’m told you’re giving an 85-year-old Viagra on a daily basis. Surely that can’t be true?”
    “Oh, yes.” Replies the nurse. “Every night at 10 o’clock we give him a cup of chocolate and a Viagra tablet. It works wonderfully well. The chocolate makes him sleep, and the Viagra stops him from rolling out of bed.” 🤣

  18. Act’s first 100 days plan: David Seymour on what he’d want in a National-Act government

    Act leader David Seymour says a full investigation into the Covid-19 response will be one of the items at the top of his list if National and Act get into Government.

    Seymour set out the plan for comprehensive inquiry into the Covid-19 response at his party’s conference in Wellington today – along with the list of what Act would be asking of National for the first 100 days of a potential new government.

    He dubbed the inquiry “Glasnost” – the Russian word for openness and transparency, used by Mikhail Gorbachev in the 1980s. He said a thorough inquiry was needed into all aspects of the Covid-19 response – from the lockdowns to the Reserve Bank’s response – and the impact it had on New Zealand’s society and economy to ensure mistakes were not made in the future.

    In his speech to the party faithful, Seymour also set out his list of proposals for the first 100 days of a potential National – Act Government – and a warning to National that it would have to “learn to share” more in a two-party government than it had in the past.

    He said Act’s hopes of a two-party government were now in reach.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/acts-first-100-days-plan-david-seymour-on-what-hed-want-in-a-national-act-government/DFXA66J3CO7RJ657B5ANXXSFKI/

    He said Act would expect National to do more than simply carry over Labour’s reforms, saying that was what happened in the past.

    “This is why I don’t vote National. They’ve been in power for 47 of the last 72 years. If the National Party were the solution to any problem, we wouldn’t have that problem now.”

    Adam, very anxious, interrupted him screaming:

    This would make life a lot easier!
    Eve agreed and said those things didn’t matter to her.
    So God gave Adam the gift.
    Adam was amazed, screaming for joy, running through the Garden of Eden, peeing on every tree.
    He ran along the beach making drawings with his pee in the sand.
    He lit a fire and played fireman..
    God and Eve stared at the mad man with happiness until Eve asked God:

  20. Fiji Grants Licenses to Chinese Mining Firm to Search for Gold

    Fiji’s Lands and Mineral Resources Ministry has issued two special prospecting licenses to Chinese mining company Ding Jing Mining Pty Ltd more than a year after local residents raised objections to the move.

    It comes amid concerns of Beijing’s ongoing influence in the Pacific following Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s tour of eight Pacific nations.

      Thank you. Based on what happened in Ziim, Congo and in other areas in Africa, the Chinese will import their own labour / experts and proceed to go over the deposits like termites (And always to THEIR advantage)

      The Fijian Government will, of course, see very little of what is found.

      In the best Chinese business tradition, Backhanders will, of course, be given and various other ‘favours’ will no doubt also occur.

      It will be interesting to see what Vatukoula Gold Mines (Emperor) will do about the newcomer…

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has spoken out against framing the conflict in Ukraine and countering ongoing Chinese aggression through a “black and white” lens, saying nations do not need to choose between autocracies or democracies.

    Ardern’s latest views stand in stark contrast to that of U.S. President Joe Biden, who has vowed to fight for a free and open Indo-Pacific region against

    • Something about the situation in Sri Lanka bothers me greatly.

      Was the cause of the uprising due to incompetence or was it planned to happen this way? Because if it was the latter then look to Sri Lanka to find out what the WHO & the NWO have in store for us.

      • The report said the people warned the government they would protest in the streets of Columbo if the government didn’t fix their problems. They have said they will protest again if they are being strung along with unfulfilled promises. There are 22 million of them.

      • Sets me a wondering too nasska.
        As some of those WEF identities have picked up that there will be “painful” part to the transition.
        So they expect opposition, so will have more than a few devious layers and plans in defence.

        And we are easily figured of not having any plans in depth.
        To be like mutineers taking over the ship, but can not navigate, or have the connections to keep things going.

        We too must make plans, consider things, so as not to be easily derailed, where to make our stands, and to have real strength in them.

        I dare say the best that have figured anything is Abe of Japan, Trump of USA, and Putin of Russia.
        Maybe Xi of China, but looking out for furthering the CCP.

        Jair Bolsonaro and I consider him only from another very aware philosopher from Brazil, Olavo de Carvalho

        The most difficult part, what it is to be “true” in our lives, is it good enough?, and then to stand and remain “true”

        • I considered that we would be the first to fall. As we’re sparsely populated, unarmed & emasculated from decades of socialism & feminism I never thought Sri Lanka would be racing us down the shitter & heading us off at the S bend.

          Yet as you state the “opposition will have more than a few devious layers and plans in defence.”

          By watching things unfold in Sri Lanka we can better understand what is coming next.

          • Regretfully Naaska, so many people in this country will not realise what has happened in agriculture in Sri Lanka is what is planned for here, as most people are not politically aware and will only believe what they are told to believe.

            It is only the likes of those who infest this site that understand what is planned and to convince the non readers and thinkers of this country beforehand, not only is an uphill battle because by being outspoken you will be considered a conspiracy theorist but you are considered a loon.

            What Ardern and Shaw have planned for this country does not bear thinking about.

            And as for the opposition like National and ACT, well Crickets. They are just derelict in their duty as an opposition in my simple, little befuddled mind.

    Media avoids covering Hunter Biden ‘like the plague’

    Fox News’ Todd Piro has blasted the media for avoiding coverage on Hunter Biden’s scandals “like the plague” after just two reporters this week probed Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the foreign business deals of the president’s son.

    Nothing to see here! Hunter Biden has 150 suspicious financial transactions flagged. 99% of Americans’ would only ever have one.

  23. That nasty little bastard Baker is at it again:

    “ Decades ago, people would joke about having ‘one for the road’. Today, drink-driving is considered abhorrent. Our attitude to masking – using high-quality, respirator-style masks, specifically – needs to follow suit, Baker says.

    “You get in a car, and put on your safety belt. You go outside, you put on sunscreen. If you go to any indoor event, you put on a mask. It won’t be forever, but we will have to for the foreseeable future.”

  24. Leaderless, well behind schedule, and sinking into a $110 million black hole.

    The fortunes of Te Pūkenga, the country’s new merged mega polytech are in dire straits before the organisation has even properly begun functioning.

    Another Hipkins fail. big time fail. Useless prick.
    Worse he appointed that useless tougher town and he has disappeared as well.
    Which can only be good.

    A damning memo sent from Tertiary Education Commission deputy chief executive Gillian Dudgeon to Education Minister Chris Hipkins paints a very black picture of Te Pūkenga’s fortunes – and provides illumination on the possible reason for the recent mysterious departure of chief executive Stephen Town.

    Based at the current Wintec campus in Hamilton, Te Pūkenga is the result of the Government’s reform of vocational education and involves the country’s 16 institutes of technology and polytechnics and four Industry Training Organisations across Aotearoa becoming one entity.

    This was of curse inevitable with town being paid $670k. He never was anything but a big spender. Left a shit legacy behind in our town,

    As an aside our polytech which is an over stuffed outfit as well, has its own campus, two of them at least, but they got merged with Waikato Uni. (more fat arses). The they built a new building in downtown (Tenby Powell and co are the architects of that) and now the Down Town Bonguard Centre appears to be closed up and sitting vacant.

    Many of the course are just rubbish stuff and load up kids with Student Loans. I reckon the get a % on them.

    The entire class was reduced to laughter and sniggering.

    When silence was restored, the teacher smiled at the student, shook her head and sweetly said, “Well, I would expect you to write the exam with your other hand.”

  26. Our retarded Green / Labour government is now importing 160,000 tonnes of bitumen per year to build roads, after Marsden Point closed. Also, waste oil produced all round the country was recycled by the facility to make bitumen. I bet companies will just pour the waste oil in the river due to prohibitive recycling costs. What a bunch of fools. We should import some tar and feathers. The new green highways will be muddy gravel affairs.

  27. On Sunday 10 July it will be 55 years since New Zealand introduced Decimal Currency.
    Upon the announcement of a Decimal Currency (DC) conversion date, banks faced the mammoth task of preparing staff and customers for the change.
    BNZ found a way to ease this transition and began the introduction of computers – a first for the New Zealand banking sector. It was hoped 70% of all branches would be converted to computers prior to the 10 July 1967, “DC Day”.
    BNZ then embarked on one of its largest staff training and system overhauls: Preparing the bank, staff and customers for both DC and computerisation.
    While computers would make the process of updating accounts quicker and easier, it required massive preparations. The first branch to be converted was Vivian Street in Wellington.
    Alongside customer accounts the bank’s staff payroll system was also computerized. New customer cheque books, pay slips and customer account codes were also created. All policies, procedures and manuals had to be updated to incorporate these changes.
    A special DC team was set up. Their role was to prepare the staff and branches for the change. They produced training material on all of the changes to systems and processes within the bank and toured the country holding training sessions for staff. This included both the branches that had already converted to computers and those still using the older Burroughs accounting machines.
    Branch staff worked extra hours updating all of the customer’s account details which would then be entered into the new computer system. They also played an important role preparing customers for the new currency, talking them through their new look cheque books and account statements. DC help desks were set up for customers in branches leading up to and on DC day.
    Overall bank staff embraced the changeover to Decimal Currency and computerisation with commitment and enthusiasm, helping make the role out of both a huge success for BNZ and its customers.

    ‘Broad sense of frustration, anger, despair’: Dutch farmers protest against nitrogen cuts

    Sky News Australia
    Netherlands Agricultural and Horticultural Organization’s Wytse Sonnema says there’s a broad sense of “frustration, anger, even despair” amongst farmers amid proposals for nitrogen reduction target plans.

    Farmers are protesting around the Netherlands over the government’s new policy which would see the country slash nitrogen oxide and ammonia emissions by 50 per cent by 2030.

      • Kea its a great plan and ive said it for years that farmers only need to starve the cities a few days and their will be imediate reversal of policies and new found respect for farmers.

        Unfortunately the majority of farmers are at the mercy of the banks so theres too many that cant afford skipping a paycheck so will cave and let the rest down.

      From Vlad’s mouth…I can’t fault him….
      “If the West wanted to provoke a conflict in order to move on to a new stage in the fight against Russia and a new stage in containing our country, we can say that it has succeeded to a certain extent. A war was unleashed, and the sanctions were imposed. Under normal circumstances, it would probably be difficult to accomplish this.

      But here is what I would you like to make clear. They should have realised that they would lose from the very beginning of our special military operation, because this operation also means the beginning of a radical breakdown of the US-style world order. This is the beginning of the transition from liberal-globalist American egocentrism to a truly multipolar world based not on self-serving rules made up by someone for their own needs, behind which there is nothing but striving for hegemony, not on hypocritical double standards, but on international law and the genuine sovereignty of nations and civilisations, on their will to live their historical destiny, with their own values and traditions, and to align cooperation on the basis of democracy, justice and equality.

      Everyone should understand that this process cannot be stopped. The course of history is inexorable, and the collective West’s attempts to impose its new world order on the rest of the world are doomed.

      At the same time, I want to say and emphasise that we have many supporters, including in the United States and Europe, and even more so on other continents and in other countries. And there will be more, no doubt about that.

      To reiterate, even in the countries that are still satellites of the United States, there is a growing understanding that their ruling elites’ blind obedience to their overlord, as a rule, does not necessarily coincide with their national interests, and most often simply and even radically contradicts them. Eventually, everyone will have to face this growing sentiment in society.

      Today, these ruling elites are raising the degree to which they manipulate the public consciousness right before our eyes. The ruling classes of the Western countries, which are supranational and globalist in nature, realised that their policies are increasingly detached from reality, common sense and the truth, and they have started resorting to openly despotic methods.

      The West, which once declared such principles of democracy as freedom of speech, pluralism and respect for dissenting opinions, has now degenerated into the opposite: totalitarianism. This includes censorship, media bans, and the arbitrary treatment of journalists and public figures.

      These kinds of prohibitions have been extended not only to the information space, but also to politics, culture, education, and art – to all spheres of public life in the Western countries. And, they are imposing this on the world; they are trying to impose this model, a model of totalitarian liberalism, including the notorious cancel culture of widespread bans.

      However, the truth and reality is that the people in most of these countries do not want this life or this future, and really do not want the formal semblance of sovereignty, they want substantive, real sovereignty and are simply tired of kneeling, of humiliating themselves before those who consider themselves exceptional, and of serving their interests even to their own detriment.

      Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Well, what can I say? Let them try.”

    The commentator making the below has normally been on the money with his view on things. I know nothing about Abe apart from a close family member who had a bit to do with him on a NZ visit saying he was a good bugger. How on the mark is this commentary in your view…just seeking confirmation that the writer knows his stuff.

    “Despite being portrayed as a “right-wing nationalist”, Abe was always a globalist creature, who “sought to increase Japan’s international profile by expanding ties with NATO, the EU, and other organizations beyond the Asia-Pacific region.” He also “attempted to centralize security policy in the Prime Minister’s office by creating the Japanese National Security Council to better coordinate national security policy, and by ordering the first National Security Strategy in Japan’s history. Based on the American body of the same name, the law to create the NSC was passed in November 2013 and began operating the following month when Abe appointed Shotaro Yachi as Japan’s first National Security Advisor.”

    He was, in short, a man of the world machine.

    Born into a political dynasty, Abe’s grandfather and great uncle had both served as prime minister before him and he was groomed for power from the start.

    And given the ongoing collapse of the liberal world order, the current stage of the global economic decline, and the way in which so many “democratic” governments are actively engaged in depopulationist war against their own nations, it won’t be terribly surprising if the next decade rivals what was described as “the Age of Assassination” during the 19th Century.

    However, as I noted on 22 June 2022: “There is an incipient split in the G7, most likely between those who want to negotiate a peace settlement (Japan and Italy) and those who don’t (USA, UK, Canada). France is leaning toward the former and Germany is leaning toward the latter.” Abe was among the LDP leaders who openly supported the peace settlement, and it’s not impossible that his very public assassination was a warning to the LDP to keep Japan in the war against the BRICSIA alliance.

    Clown World appears to be terrified of a reasonable peace settlement in Ukraine, for some reason. And the fact that his assassin was ex-military tends to lend itself to the “pour encourager les autres” interpretation.”

  31. Judeo-Christian does not exist. The two are at war and in direct opposition. Judeo-Communism, on the other hand, are bedfellows. The Koran is as close to the Bible as any religious book. Islamo-Christian is a better match.

    • Both Christianity & Islam were mutations of Judaism. All three draw their authority from the Old Testament which is little but a history of the tribes of the Middle East from the Stone Age through to the Early Iron Age with a few bullshit sightings of Jehovah thrown in to clinch the scam. The myths continued to be propagated to keep the priest class well fed & stoned out of their heads on kaneh bosem.

      The common thread of all three of the Abrahamic sects is control of the peasantry, support of the ruling class & a nice little earner for the religious parasites.

  32. Did anyone watch Country Calendar tonight? It was about the owners of Mt Cook station harvesting/clearing the wilding pines (for export logs, posts and firework). Because they were converting the land into productive pasture they had pay $2million into the ETS because Shaw and his idiots had included the weed into the scheme. What nonsense!!
    NB. I do not catch the area of trees involved but it many hundreds of acres, which was taking 3 years to clear.

      • I do not think so. The farmer was totally against the wildings being included in the scheme, so it would have been a bit hypocrtical of him to have claimed it.
        If he knew he was going to find a way of getting rid the trees and putting the land back into pasture it would seem to be a strange move to claim the credits knowing he would have to repay when he cleared the trees. Better not to claim and then just go ahead with the clearance when he had worked out the best scheme.
        But I have to admit I do not really know the details of how it works.

    Desperate banks are offering a range of deals to attract customers, as a perfect storm hits the housing and lending market.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/07/10/mortgage-wars-banks-offering-incentives-as-market-cools/

    BNZ and KiwiBank are both offering 1% cashback for customers (with conditions) – in some cases that could mean up to $20,000 – when they take out home loans.

    ANZ has launched a special 1% interest rate for current borrowers who want to make their homes energy efficient. That could mean installing solar panels, heating and insulation or double glazing. The loan, of up to $80,000 could also be used to purchase electric or hybrid vehicles.

    It comes as falling house prices, tough lending conditions, buyer hesitancy, and rising interest rates have potential borrowers nervous, all leading to a drop in mortgage applications.

  34. I have picked up on this the other day, one from a tweet of Geert Wilders, to documents he had though I could not get a translation.

    … From what I’ve been reading about, some people (not a majority) are coming to a conclusion that the whole plan for illegally appropriating the Dutch farmers land, comes down to an agenda of the Tristate City Network project.

    From what it looks like, and this picture was taken directly from the tristatecity.nl , to abide by UN Sustainable Development Goals, they’d want to connect the Benelux region (BElgium/NEtherlands/LUXembourg) via large urban sprawl, aka: megalopolis akin to the Jing-Jin-Ji.(see attached pic)

    What are some thoughts/opinions on this? Do you think they might be onto something regarding this? Or is it just more anti-Liberal World Order conspiracy theories? ….

    Certainly something stinks in appropriating farmers’ land and using that eco green nonsense.
    This has been smouldering since 2017

    October 30, 2017 …. By treating the Netherlands as an urbanised delta with 17 million inhabitants, the project’s supporters say that are creating a very strong player in this ‘battle of the titans.’ Fragmented ‘Our city marketing is too fragmented and inefficient,’ the project website says. …

    Certainly not a city I would be aiming to live in.

    That interview is good and pulls together the governmental WEF PM Rutte’s policies and shows the interconnection to larger plans.

    We need some connection with him, just to learn how that system works, and to follow on their successes, and avoid the failures.
    Like being careful to keep the public support, as the government will try to split & divide, but to keep pressing on, and showing up what this globalization link up really means, the price to the individual, who will have chains & controls put on him.

    All the time it seems to be adding up, to do away with farms in the Netherlands, and fill it with some large super population of a city, which will be very controllable.
