    • Thought of a better one than my first, “do I have to do question time on a Thursday again?”
      I don’t do Thursdays Jacinda.
      All is well in the world, Jacinda has now been in power 650 days.
      In that time, she has morphed into the kind darling of the world.
      Whilst back at the day to day job, it appears Jacinda doesn’t really like fronting Parliament for question time.
      I thought it important the PM fronts the parliament to answer questions?
      How far back do we have to go to find a Thursday where she fronted question time.
      From what I can find in Parliamentary records.
      She has managed to drag herself into the chamber on two occasions, yes just two occasions.
      First was Thursday 16 November, the first sitting of this term of Parliament.
      The second appearance, just 17 months ago on 1 March 2018.
      The most open accountable government?
      Great work if you can get it
      Has had to front 25 question times so far this year.
      Great work if you can get.
      Maybe it is in the Winston agreement, has to be some reaso

  1. Talking of which.
    The colossus arises once more.

    Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the New Zealand First political party, Winston Peters agrees that State Highway 2 north from Bethlehem to Katikati is a traffic danger.

    The question was: ‘When can the residents of the Western Bay expect to see a commitment to fund and commence the Katikati bypass?’

    “I have seen that is now a matter of absolute urgency since the last election,” says Winston.

    “After the election it’s the biggest crisis point of development requiring work.

    “But I happen to agree with you that it does require that because of the traffic danger and the need to get that towards Katikati as fast as we possibly can, and we will do our best to find that money.

    “That is a project that looks like it needs to be funded, just in the way and the same way we funded here,” says Winston.

    “We are going to make as many representations as we can because we think it meets the safety requirements as well.

    “One can’t stand here and make promises because it has to be decision in the end by the Minister of Transport and the Minister of Finance but we will make as strong representations as we possibly can.”

    Last night in Tauranga.
    Now the funding he refers to of course is toll funding. We already have 2 toll roads and are the only town in the country where we have to pay to go into town and pay when we leave.

    Expect to see this road underway before the election as it is Simon’s place although not his electorate.

    • Was not the original Harbour bridge from Tauranga to the Mount set up locally and funded by tolls because central Govt would not fund it?

      The regular road development stopped soon into the 1975 National Govt election and lasted 30 years. That was for financial reasons. Now it is for ideological cuckoo clocks.

  2. Do you ever look back at previous comments and wonder where all the anger came from ? i looked at my comment linking the beast of Blenheim to the Labour party again & thought i would never have dreamed of doing that to any political party ever in the past, even the Green Taliban wouldnt have raised my hackles that much, maybe it’s the continual bombardment of lies & obfuscation that has me and many others so wound up that all decency & decorum have gone out the window, maybe i could tone it down a bit but watching our freedoms being eroded by a bunch of socialist scum just refires that anger anew every day, it would be interesting to know if others feel they have become a different less kind commentator since this mob gained power or is it all just partisan politics where we just hate them for being lefties regardless, rant over TGIF one & all

  3. Genter should resign in disgrace.
    If a National Party Minister had done the same I would also expect their resignation.

    Where is the Prime Minister on this? Oh that’s right- Photoshoots and a ‘Royal Wedding’ to plan….

    • JAG is a lying dangerous hypocritical, ideologue who should not be anywhere near the levers of power. She is not fit to be in government.

      In her capacity as Minister of Womin, she has made sexist and racist remarks about pakeha males; she made all sorts of comments about Russell McCeagh last year, but has said nothing about accusations emanating from the Beehive

      As Assoc. Minister of Health she issued dietary advice to hospital dietitians last week that was dangerous and injurious to sick people recovering in hospital

      As Assoc. Minister of Transport she has talked with forked tongues about road safety and pushed the Vision Zero programme while being responsible for stopping motorway programmes on SH1 (Northland) and SH2 (BOP) and for opposing road side drug testing (when road deaths by drugged drivers is one of the major causes of road deaths). Memos have shown her opposition has been because it is contrary to Green Party policy on drugs. Then there is her blackmail of Twitford and WCC over what Wellington’s transport programme will be.

      She is dangerous, she puts ideology before good governance. She should be sacked and not be allowed to be anywhere near government.

  4. Lessons in how to dance on a pin has and split hairs 1.

    The JAG letter. The CoL are doing everything to distract and obfuscate.
    1. Mallard allowing a parliamentary paid for programme (The House on RNZ National) to debate what is a ministerial communication and what is not.
    2. Chippie in the House using a bad example of him communicating with Tracey Martin about an education matter.
    3. Clouding matters by the saying they are representing matters as MPs or as ministers they are wanting “free and frank discussions” between ministers.

    In the JAG letter case, none of which holds water.

    Because:
    1. She was not communicating to Twitford as an MP or as a Green Transport spokesperson
    2. This was a matter of what will or will not be government support for a programme in Wellington.
    3. Chippie’s anecdote is B/S because he is the Minister and Martin is the Assoc. MMinister of Education. They have privileged knowledge, they can’t have a Labour to NZF policy discussion on education.

    • Welcome to the light side HK.
      You are not in the dark world of Kiwiblog so you can just say – Genter is a liar.
      That is fine. She is.

      You can also say Twitford and not upset the Control Freaks at Farrar’s world of delayed responses. 🙂

Roll on next year and election time. we will see the COLL slowly disintergrate to infighting. The greens co-leadreship between cunt marama and Jimmy two mums will be interesting, as will the drunken dwarf and his motely lot.

  5. Lessons on how how to dance on a pin and split hairs 2.

    For fun read the Open Mike page and read how Standardnestas want to ignore, wash away or hide the accusations coming from the Beehive.

    It was like all the gnashing of teeth over Rissell McVeagh or the finger pointing over JLR never happened. It is all about protecting PriNZess, the fairy dust and the unicorn garden.

      • All that effort to make up a fancy long name, then… manslaughter by alcohol.

        The BS is that the killer will be treated as a victim and it will be colonisation and all the other pathetic excuses for losers as promoted by the Parliamentary Maori Caucus – themselves the biggest handbrake on our country moving forward to a level it should attain.

        The child possibly had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
        This is hinted at.
        So the other twin could be facing a retrograde future.

        All this poverdy and homelessness but the birth giver (not a mother) smokes and was able to consume 18 cans of sugared alcohol at say $2 per can so $36.

        Because she is traumatized by colonisation we white supremacists are oppressors.
        I think Judge Raoul Neave should be put in charge of this and he can award her a dozen cans of bourbon and cola every day for the next 18 years!
        Yes, sarcasm but that is what that overpaid clown and society wrecker would likely do if given the chance.
        This is the level of absurdity of not addressing real issues.

            Once they become state tenants they transform into model citizens.

            Also, Ardern never lies and is really really intelligent, caring and works hard as prime minister.

            Just not in this universe.

  6. Received the latest email from Act:

    Dear

    This past week, we’ve seen another serious threat to freedom of expression. The Chinese Government has made multiple attempts to shut down debate it doesn’t like in our universities.

    After days of pressure from ACT, Jacinda Ardern and Winston Peters finally spoke up for free speech and New Zealand’s interests.

    ACT has led the charge in defending your right to freedom of expression. Can we count on you to support our efforts?

    In the coming weeks, I’ll be travelling around the country to talk to New Zealanders about how we can stop continued attempts to undermine our most fundamental freedom.

    Freedom to Speak Tour dates

    Howick – 10 August
    University of Auckland – 19 August
    Massey University, Manawatū – 16 September
    Palmerston North – 16 September
    Victoria University – 18 September.

    Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Waikato University, Canterbury University, Otago University and Invercargill dates will be announced very shortly.

    Like my Facebook page to be the first to find out.

    Yours sincerely

    • You say that, and today we get on RNZ (Morning Report), muslims are feeling marginalized again in NZ. There were calls for hate speech against muslims to be made illegal etc. They even interviewed Dame Susan Devoid.

      Let’s get things straight:
      1 NZ is a secular country with freedom to follow your chosen religion;
      2. Islam is a region, not an ethnicity;
      3. You choose to follow Islam, you are not born it, anymore than I was not born a Christian, I just choose to follow that faith;
      4. If we can have hate speech against a specific religious faith, then there must be provision for hate speech against all religious Faith’s. Else the law is biased and contrary to the notion that we are all equal before the law.

      • Islam is a region, not an ethnicity;
        Um not altogether. Islam is a political system that embraces religion as its reason for being. Being Muslim means belonging to a political movement which has the goal of ruling the world and treating everyone that is not a Muslim as an infidel. They are considered to be expandable. Chop their heads off.

      • Don’t think they do have a choice, Hullkiwi. Any child that is born of a muslim father is muslim and we all know the penalty for apostasy! How Obama got away with it I don’t know – presume he was there for a reason only known to himself and his brothers in faith.

      • Emirates and highly recommended. Great pick up and drop off service along with superb lounges. Currently on the A380 which has a bar you can walk to and sit at whilst you quaff whatever takes your fancy. Food is very good and plentiful, snacks outside of meal times if you like. All crew very attentive to your needs. Have a flight later down to Blenheim which will be a bit different !

    Anyone else slightly uncomfortable with this?

    What’s going to happen at Election time next year? Will the kids be ordered to wear Labour Red to class?

    “I’m going to be pretty careful answering that question, Mike because this is um… ah… enquiry and work is still underway and it is um… a party matter, but if you ah… want numbers on those who come and go from the Labour Party ah… that’s not a number I can give you at present. I can tell you that our numbers are healthy and probably grow by the day with every interview I do…”

      • And why is it not an employment matter? The safety and welfare of staff is a recognised employment matter. I’m guessing as the accused apparently worked in the PM’s office the Party don’t want Cindy being too close the matter so have taken the lead. I wonder if the complainants will find an employment lawyer and challenge this ruling by the Labour Party?

  10. I was browsing the leftie infiltrated Wikedpedia site to ascertain our countries political origins.

    Our premier, Sir Julius Vogel wrote a book, Anno Domini 2000, or, Woman’s Destiny, published in 1889. It anticipated a utopian world where women held many positions of authority.

    I fast forwarded to 2007, for purely nostalgic reasons, using the new alternative to wiki and was happy to find a factual account of what was dominating the news 12 years ago.

  11. Conservative know-alls will be pushing to spin this. In the ten years since the New Zealand Law Commission reviewed the alcohol laws:

    ……”alcohol has contributed to 700,000 physical and sexual assaults, up to 30,000 children born with alcohol-related brain damage and more than $70 billion of social costs.”……

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12257240

    And the wankers worry about marijuana users seeking to make their drug of choice legal. Fact…..few get assaulted or raped by dopers……frankly, after a joint it seems too much of an effort.

    But let’s hear it for the mantra of those who know best; Alcohol good……Marijuana bad.

      • The Mongrel Mob will only be smoking pot to let themselves down gently from their drug of choice…..meth.

        Meth & alcohol are the precursors to 90% plus of serious violence, 50% + of road deaths & plenty of other assorted misery. Yet a pack of half baked religious conservatives who have spent the last twenty years watching Reefer Madness on loop have deluded themselves that marijuana is the problem.

        They open their mouths & let the Nor-wester blow their tongues around while observing life through the bottom of a gin bottle!

      But what? There’s no shortage of public campaigns & the advice is hammered hard by all those involved in pre /post natal services.

      Only Kea’s advice, which might be considered a tad drastic in these enlightened times, or locking them up are left for options.

      And meth is worse……far worse.

    • I call bullshit on that blood alcohol level being caused by breast milk, even if the birthed was a soak.
      I call bullshit on the suggestion this was caused by poverty or inadequate housing.
      And I’m seriously pissed off when some feral murders their own child by negligence and self-celtredness and we all get told to become absolutely teetotal when breastfeeding – like we all need lessons in responsible parenting.
      Do the anti Oranga Tamariki protestors outside Parliament have anything to say about two more Taonga killed or damaged by Maori families? How many is that since the protests started?

  12. Re the cocaine find on the beach
    I saw an Al Jazeera doco last month that said that as cocaine was so cheap in SA and dear in Aussie and NZ the drug lords were sending it over in small fishing boats and yachts and making huge profits.
    They also told these people that if they saw any navy or similar boats coming, to chuck it overboard.
    They had done the maths and worked it out that they could easily loose a few shipments.

  13. I stand by my prediction that she’ll be gone before the year is out.
    The empty headed media will be forced to expose her incompetence.
    They will suffer too. Nowhere to hide. “Wack a mole”
    Question is:
    Who would be her successor?
    Who has the cahonies to step up?
    Is $500k enough?

    A symbol of reconciliation, harmony, community and a return to a sense of belonging.

    Pie in the Sky? Maybe.
