    • Viking, it is coming up 47 years since a similar vessel to the “Henry Ford”, the SS “Edmund Fitzgerald” sank on Lake Superior in November 1974. These are huge vessels carrying iron ore on the Great lakes and it must have been a massive storm that sank the Edmund Fitzgerald. A ceremony is held every year to remember the crew of this vessel and Gordon Lightfoot’s song “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” is played.

  1. What can you possibly say about the first picture this morning? That BBC man is a fat fuck? Good morning everyone of you pure bloods and those who wish you were. I patiently wait for the global warming although is it melting the clouds way out in outer space and causing all this rain? All summer people were complaining about the lack of rain…. well we got it all since the change of season. Happy now????? Have a wonderful day wearing masks and getting a further booster/////////////////// FJA

  2. How to keep your wallets safe.
    Sean Connery was interviewed by Michael Parkinson and bragged that, despite being 72 years of age, he could still have sex three times a night.
    Cilla Black, who was also a guest, looked intrigued.
    After the show, Cilla says, “Sean, if I’m not bein too forward, I’d luv to ‘ave sex with yer. Lets go back to my ‘ouse, we could ‘ave a lorra fun.”
    So they went back to her place and got comfortable.
    After a couple of drinks they went off to bed and had an hour of mad passionate sex together.
    Afterwards, Sean says, “If you think that was good, let me shleep for half an hour, and we can have better shex. But while I’m shleeping, hold my balls in your left hand and ma willie in your right hand.”
    Cilla looks a bit perplexed, but says, “Okay.”
    He sleeps for half an hour, awakens, and they have even better sex than before.
    Then Sean says, ‘Cilla, that was wonderful. But if you let me shleep for an hour, we can have the besht shex yet. You’ll have to…….”
    “I know Sean. Yer want me to ‘old onto yer bat ‘n balls again. No problem hun.”
    Cilla complies with the routine.
    The results this time are absolutely mind blowing.
    Once it’s all over, they have a drink, Sean lights a cigarette and Cilla asks. “Sean, tell me, dis ‘oldin yer balls in one hand and yer willie in de other – does it really stimulate yer that much?”
    Sean replies, “No, not at all Cilla, but the last time I shlept with a scouser, the fucking bitch stole ma wallet.”

    • The Judiciary piling in, when Ivermectin is not like fentanyl, but seems to be a Narcan for many.
      In the realms of Long Covid it is like leaving people “Dopesick” suffering painful withdrawal agonies, that could worsen, and is with out end.

      New Zealand health specialists making using & torturing people over “Long Covid” for Ardern’s kindness of abject Cruelty.
      Surely the Doctors in New Zealand should be at least allowed Ivermectin to be prescribed, that is in consultation with a Doctor, who can measure & monitor progress, or any further problems.

      July 2, 2021 … who says it should be administered under the supervision of a doctor who is familiar with their patient’s full medical history. …

      …. The alliance has developed protocols for using the drug to prevent and treat COVID-19, including guidelines specific to long-haulers. ,,,,

      A full Royal Inquiry is needed, with wide terms of reference, unfortunately I sort of doubt one can find an independent mind.
      Maybe divided up into sections, with separate arbiters. like just “Covid treatments”, so that results can be quick and decisive.

    • I wish the gangs would hurry up and cotton on to the fact that there is money to be made importing Ivermectin then perhaps we would have a reliable source of what Dr Fauci in 2009 called a “wonder drug.” //

  3. the air uber has relocated from Nadi to Suva, ready to whisk the socialist back to her rapidly changing Nirvana.
    Her real dilemma is that more of the flock are growing disgruntled.
    The discourse and hatred from the sheep hopefully doesn’t reach the Sri Lankan WEF model failure.
    The expats have voted and they are not happy.
    Second last on list at 51 where people want to live financially, I am sure she can knock the last one Kuwait off with her policies.
    It must be a tad amusing, for her that Australia to be in Top Ten, in at nine.

    • People who relocate from Australia always mention the living costs here are high. Being an export nation we pay transport costs to Timbuktu, as we compete against hungry foreigners, with market prices in their land. Us locals can burn, according to the big global companies running the local farms. Looking at you Fonterra.

      Inflation costs due to be published on the 17th July. https://tradingeconomics.com/new-zealand/inflation-cpi

      I would guess the interest rate lifting Reserve Bank has had a peak, and CPI is north of 7%, and running hard. Economists are like lambs to the slaughter. Inflation is really high. Lift interest rates too late, really high. Ergo, economy crashes.

      This is the result of locking everyone up for two years and going into debt, printing money. The self induced Covid suicide pill was also an inflationary atom bomb.

      • We went to live in aussie 2009, when we first arrived we were blown away with how expensive everything was there esp groceries but the massive wage difference more then compensated… we returned to nz in 2012 and we then noticed how cheap aussie was and how expensive nz had become plus the stagnant wages here too.

        Hindsight is great, wish id never returned to nz.

  4. This is I am afraid the tip of a very big iceberg
    My ex kiwi wife never knew her Grandmother. her mother never mentioned her. She didn’t find out her fate till many years after she died.
    She was placed into an institution in the early 1920’s died incarcerated in 1970.
    From what I can gather she had post natal depression, and had 70 years to sit alone and think about it.

    • There are so many similar examples. Cindy is jabbed, (so we are told) and she is not fit to be PM.
      I think we can blame covid vaccine for any adverse event from now on. This does away with the coroner having to go through the charade of wasting time and holding hearings.

  5. It is hard being a conservative translator (science background) when most of the editors hail from the faculties of the arts.

    I pointed out that the sentence “I am working such long hours as a health nurse in Tokyo because of the coronavirus” should be rewritten as “I am working such long hours as a health nurse in Tokyo because of the coronavirus policies.”

    The editor was not amused. The government is infallible. Either that or we ought not to bite the hand that feeds us these translation projects. Politics and translation. Tell the truth or tow the party line.

    In times like these, I am guided by the great philosopher Marx.

    “Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them…well I have others.”

  6. An old man in Mississippi was sitting on his front porch watching the sunrise.
    He sees the neighbor’s kid walk by carrying something big under his arm.
    He yells out “Hey boy, whatcha got there?”
    Boy yells back “Roll of chicken wire.”
    Old man says “What you gonna do with that?”
    Boy says “Gonna catch some chickens.”
    Old man yells “You damn fool, you can’t catch chickens with chicken wire!”
    Boy just laughs and keeps walking.
    That evening at sunset the boy comes walking by and to the old man’s surprise he is dragging behind him the chicken wire with about 30 chickens caught in it.
    Same time next morning the old man is out watching the sun rise and he sees the boy walk by carrying something kind of round in his hand.
    Old man yells out “Hey boy, whatcha got there?”
    Boy yells back “Roll of duck tape.”
    Old man says “What you gonna do with that?”
    Boy says back “Gonna catch me some ducks.”
    Old man yells back, “You damn fool, you can’t catch ducks with duck tape!”
    Boy just laughs and keeps walking.
    That night around sunset the boy walks by coming home and to the old man’s amazement he is trailing behind him the unrolled roll of duck tape with about 35 ducks caught in it.
    Same time next morning the old man sees the boy walking by carrying what looks like a long reed with something fuzzy on the end.
    Old man says “Hey boy, whatcha got there?”
    Boy says “It’s a pussy willow.”
    Old man says “Wait up … I’ll get my hat.”

    Ivana and Donald married in 1977 and divorced in 1992. They had three children together: Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric.

  8. The family of a woman who died at Middlemore Hospital have a right to know what happened and what steps are being taken to address the hospital’s problems, advocates say.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/07/15/call-for-greater-transparency-over-middlemore-patient-death/

    “It’s pretty obvious it’s a system failure and that’s why the patient lost their life,” Mulholland said.

    “People have got to have trust in the health system, because if we don’t have that what have we got?”

    National Party health spokesperson Shane Reti said he thought there should have been progress made on the investigation by now.

    “There should have at least been some substantial preliminary findings released,” he said.

  11. Stupid boy a d stupid boy jr have gone on a trip to the south islands west coast for a few days, somehow its been over 10yrs since i was last year and i must say im blown away… the place is now an absolute shithole dead as a dodo, theres nothing going for it now and its just dying a slow death. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is just full of shit.
    Then theres even more sadder places to visit… like the bush, another decade of green rain seems to have decimated most life from these once great forests, the deer numbers have dwindled greatly but so has the birdlife. I took the wee fella hunting in a special place for me, shot my first deer there and used to frequent the area multiple times per year with many mates who are now no longer with us. The place was eerily silent, no birds left very few deer, the only life that was evident was the numerous possums along the bushedge that the numerous 1080 drops were supposed to kill.

    Quite sad and depressing really, i was excited to get back over here but now im more excited to get home.

    Even went to franz glacier, thought id show the wee dude before its gone… a whole lotta nothing, its retreated a shitload and the cloud had covered what little remains to see from the bottom.
    The plus side tho was while sitting at the glacier view point (too far for fatties to bother walking) i got spectacular views of 3 smoking hot aussie girls in yoga pants, 2 of them may have not have been wearing panties as a glorious body part looked very hungry and was chewing the front of those beautiful yoga pants.
    That was a brilliant highlight yet it was not enough to offset the dull depressing experience of the west coast of the south island.

    • Interesting to read your thoughts. On our SI trip a couple of years back the intention was to do a slow circuit but the sheer boredom of the East Coast shortened the Picton/Invercargill drive to three days. Week two found us retreating north through the Haast Pass, escaping from the bitter cold of a Southland summer along with the crass tourism of Queenstown & the surrounding tourist dump.

      The further we moved up the West Coast the better it got. From the ceaseless rain & mosquitoes of Haast through to Hokitika past the jaded, run down glacier towns which would have been a good backdrop for a film based on Route 66. Greymouth is a hole but such a quintessential hole that it has a charm of it’s own.

      Yet I only started to really enjoy our trip when we spent a week at Mokihinui exploring Westport through to Karamea. The last week spent at Collingwood rounded off the trip perfectly.

      Were I to recommend a cure for the SI I would advise a surgical removal of everything south of a line drawn between Kaikoura & Harihari. That part generally represents a waste of perfectly good diesel & tyre rubber. 🙂

      The glaciers haven’t retreated. The roads to them have. I’ve previously linked to a paper saying the. Glaciers are advancing. But both can be true depending on the weather.

      • If there’s just one of them, the best self defense is a judo throw onto the hard concrete and then run like hell before your attacker can get up.

        Best of all, avoid getting into a conflict in the first place. You should spend your time learning body language and danger signs to avoid the situation to begin with, how to get out of the situation without having to get physical and the rest of the time learning how to control the situation and get out as quickly as possible.

        • In the early mid 70s, due to the incredible if erratic fertility of my beloved & the financial stress of two mortgages, I needed to work two jobs. My part time employment involved work as a bottle store attendant filling flagons & acting as doorman/bouncer from about 8pm until closing time Thurs/Sat.

          It wasn’t exactly High Noon type work. Just telling the occasional pisshead that he/she would be welcome back tomorrow but tonight they needed to go home for a bit of shut-eye.

          With exceptions; 1) the start of the rugby season & the heroes of the 1st 15 pushing their luck 2) Mad drunken (usually Maori) women goading their equally fucked up partners 3) October & November when normally sane people lose it AND fucking idiots juiced up on the latest kung foo, ju jitsu, judo or any of the wank up Eastern martial arts.

          They’d try to kick you in the nuts then cry like baby girls when you bent them a little & restricted their breathing as they headed out through the door into the night.

          There are probably some true masters of the art but your correspondent to this day believes that 99% of it is a load of shit & heaving 112lb bags of fertiliser onto a truck leaves you with a physique to counter it. 🙂

  14. Kainga Ora is a Basket Case

    Waikanae watchers

    Jul 14

    1700 new staff. $24 million on an office fit out. Debt blow out to $28 Billion by 2026 which won’t be repaid by 2082!

    by Cam Slater on the BFD

    The Labour campaign in the 2017 and 2020 elections had housing as their number one priority. They promised to build 100,000 Kiwibuild homes and to fix the growing waiting list for emergency housing. Instead what they’ve created is a basket case; an organisation bloated with large numbers of excess staff and a burgeoning debt burden that has blown out so badly that the Minister has been warned about it in briefing papers to cabinet.

    The one thing Kainga Ora hasn’t done is build new homes. But they have spent $24 million on flash office fit-outs.

    Housing Minister Megan Woods has been warned not to grant any future Budget bids to state housing agency Kainga Ora for a time, after fears of unsustainable debt levels.

    A leaked document from the Ministry for Housing and Urban Development shows that spiralling construction costs have led to a debt blowout at Kainga Ora, with fears the Government will be unable to completely repay the increase in debt over the next 60 years.

    The document, dated June 17, says Kainga Ora is “investigating” cost-cutting measures such as pausing a programme to improve heating in homes or retrofitting old homes with improvements that make them accessible to people with disabilities. Officials said the ideas might result in some “cost savings” but they will not address the root cause of the blowouts.

    NZ Herald

    Predictably, the minister, Megan Woods, in between mouthfuls of sausage rolls, denies that there is a problem.

    Woods’ office said that “no decisions were made on the recommendations and Minister Woods sought more advice on the matters raised”.

  15. more uncomfortable stats for supporters of Jacinda’s Jabs

    Waikanae watchers

    Jul 15

    These aren’t the kind of figures you would expect to see if the Covid-19 injections really are up to 95% effective at preventing death, are they?

    While you’ve been distracted by Boris Johnson’s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the UK Government quietly published a report just hours before his announcement containing data they previously claimed they didn’t have, which confirmed the vaccinated now account for 94% of Covid-19 deaths in England, and 90% of those deaths are among the triple vaccinated. With news like this being swept under the rug by the mainstream media, it makes you wonder what else they will attempt to hide in the coming weeks?

  16. Subject: Call To Action – Tractors at the LGNZ Conference

    Dear farmers,

    On Tuesday the 19th of July (next Tuesday) Local Government NZ (LGNZ) is holding a meeting in Palmerston North at the Palmerston North Conference and Function Center, 354 Main Street, Palmerston North.

    Groundswell NZ wishes to have a presence there to push back against the Government’s absurd Three Waters programme and highlight the loss of local democracy.

    LGNZ cut a deal with the Government not to speak out against Three Waters, even though most councils are against it. How does that fit with their stated objectives of representing their Council members to the Government and supporting Local Democracy?

    Tractors are the Groundswell NZ trademark and we are asking our Groundswell NZ supporters in the Palmerston North/Feilding area or perhaps further afield to support the call. 


    So on Tuesday the 19th we need support from 8.30 to 10.30 outside the convention centre when delegates arrive to get the 3 waters update and in the afternoon the second session starts at 1.30 with a 45 minute address by Nanaia Mahuta at 2pm so we need the tractors there from 1.30 until 3 pm.

    We would ask that people make our presence felt but remain respectful. Banners will be available. 


    Following our Three Waters meetings in the South, Gore District Council has asked the Government to halt Three Waters and hold a referendum on the issue –this is what pressure can do.

    Please email hello@groundswell.org.nz if you can support us in Palmerston North, so we can get an idea of numbers.



    Thank you for your support.

    Kind regards,
    Bryce, Laurie, Mel and the team at Groundswell NZ

    PS. We are a grassroots movement representing farmers, growers, and rural communities without the resources of the political parties or levy bodies. If you can, chip in to Groundswell NZ so we can continue to fight unworkable regulations and stand up for local democracy. Click here to donate.

  19. Labour asks supporters to back Three Waters in Parliament
    15 Jul, 2022 06:12 PM
    The Labour Party is using its supporters mailing list to drum up support for its Three Waters reforms as submissions close on the legislation that will give effect to the key part of the reforms.

    National’s local government spokesman Simon Watts is calling the move “desperate”, saying it shows Labour is worried the committee will be overwhelmed by submissions against the proposals.

    On Friday, Labour’s Campaigns Team sent an email to people on its mailing list – usually reserved for Labour Party fundraising and events – asking them to make a submission to Parliament’s Finance and Expenditure Committee on the Water Services Entities Bill, the main legislation that will give effect to Three Waters reforms.
