  1. After the CGT debacle I understand the CoL have declared war on poverty.

    Where do I go to surrender?

    • Isolate all gang members in prison and let “toxic masculinity” take its course. Andrew Little can claim he has reduced the prison population as promised.

    • They have to be seen as “doing something” when the best “something” is to let the free market look after itself. The left do not understand the concept of every action has an opposite and equal reaction.

      • Plan b, at least these things aren’t implemented as well as the CGT. Fight them one at a time, if there wasn’t evidence of such government waste then these new taxes wouldn’t be so abhorrent, but there is a huge amount of waste, Labour should claw back some of Shane’s lolly scramble for essential infrastructure, you know all of that stuff that they told us National hadn’t done.

  2. I was just waiting for my sister at Auckland airport, as I saw her emerge in arrivals I shouted “Hi sis”…
    Fuck me, never seen as many armed police appear as quickly in my life!

    • Being the good leftie she is, she doesn’t believe that she has any “political Capital”
      That is such a capitalist construct that its not on the table.

    • “OPINION: If ever Labour was going to scream transformational government then the one policy it had in the shop front window was the capital gains tax.

      It was the panacea, the holy grail on the way to Jacinda’s socialist nirvana.

      This would finally even up the scorecard. Utu was being whispered out loud.

      The rich could no longer just simply get rich owning and selling assets. They would finally have to rethink how they got rich and the free lunch would be taxed. Hip hip hooray … said Grant Robertson. ”

      Q: Where is Grant Robertson, the country’s Finance Minister and CGT co-conspirator of Cindy’s? Grant was in the thick of planning to implement this envy tax to fill the coffers with taxpayers money. He failed appear alongside to support his PM and bestie when she fronted the media to inform the country that their flagship policy CGT tax would be dumped forthwith. Is Grant distancing himself from the fallout? Is he sharpening that set of knives we all know he has kept polished for another bid at the leadership when the next opportunity appears? Time will tell.

      • “Where is Grant Robertson?” Indeed, where was he when Cindy was visiting the Mosque?
        Wonder how welcome he would have been.
        Where was he when Cullen delivered the CGT that was ordered?
        Couldn’t get his head around the vibe of the thing?
        It is all rather fascinating that the “finance minister” has distanced himself from any and all issues that concern his portfolio, a decision that may come back to bite him, probably doesn’t have the media stardust to protect him like it does Cindy, despite the all the “progressive” identity boxes he ticks.

        • Grant has disappeared down a $11 billion chasm – and found a dark hole sucking out all the wasted surplus he was gifted by the ‘9 years of neglect’.

      • He certainly could do no worse for Labour than JA. You’d think an accountant would be firmly grounded in reality. (then again, this is Parliament we’re talking about!) He is definitely in hiding. Pitt Island perhaps.

        • ducklin: “You’d think an accountant would be firmly grounded in reality.”

          No sign of accountancy qualifications, just another ideologically driven politics student:

          Labour Party website: “Grant studied politics at Otago, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in 1995. His involvement in the campaign against user-pays education led him to become President of the Otago University Students Association, and later Vice President and then Co-President of the New Zealand University Students Association.”

    • Did they shake hands with you?

      She said the ministry had been “supporting” Al-Madinah School for just over two years, after receiving several complaints about “employment issues, financial mismanagement and issues with recruitment of staff”.

      So this support lead to the situation becoming dire.

      The 2017 OAG audit of the school “noted multiple irregularities including: inadequate documentation for some payments, payments that appeared excessive for the purpose, and uncertainties over the extent of transactions with related parties and whether these had been carried out at arms-length.”

      So why did it continue, under the ministry’s knowledge. Is it because a certain religion does not shake hands with a woman, or listen to it?

        Successive Education Review Office reports have drawn attention to problems of “governance and segregation”, and a limited statutory manager was installed in 2002. ….
        ….. the special character of the school had to be considered, but it was integrated into the New Zealand system “and needs to meet the education requirements”. ….

        I would think some government money is flowing into this school, and most likely unstintingly.
        Seems to have a history of government involvement costs, in sorting it out and keeping it going.

      • Certainly know how to gain Ministry money in many ways, then spend it differently for its purpose.
        May 2015
        The present investigation is believed to focus on claims the school improperly used ministry money on its buildings. It received a $1.1 million grant from the ministry last year to upgrade a classroom block, but is alleged to have used other school money on the project as well.

        As an integrated school, buildings are supposed to be the responsibility of the proprietor, which in this case is the trust. The Government only funds minor maintenance, with the exception of grants for modernisation.

        The funds of the school and trust should be clearly separate, to ensure accountability. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11457038

        A reasonable size school of 550 pupils to be inculated into madrassas systems.

  3. Your post was the first to be deleted on MY blog. Do not come on here and defame anyone and expect it to be okay. If you don’t like it you can fuck off back to the standard were you came from.

    • I’m compelled to assume that the downvote to my question is the youngster himself. Ducklin71, you’re right. But the problem (for all forums, not just this blog) is that those who come here with opposing views, and that includes JSF and Fairy Dust etc as well, arrive full of righteousness and scorn, determined to score points. They’re not here to discuss and learn, or debate civilly, they’re here to stir shit and win some kind of infantile moral victory for themselves. “There! I showed those uneducated rabid right wingers! Now, Mum! What’s for tea?”

      • Exactly John! Bring some decent counter-arguments to discuss. Why is JA so great? Why do you believe or trust the UN? Why do you think the CGT is a good idea? etc. Plenty to discuss. A sense of humour is mandatory.

  4. He should do- I’m not being sarcastic either. Bring your ideas and arguments to the table. That’s the whole point. How do we convince the young ones they are ready to throw freedom and all it stands for out the window?

      • I’m trying to do exactly that with my kids. One great example i use is their 95-year old great grandfather in California. WW 2 vet. He and his generation saw horrors most of us can only imagine. They fought for freedom against true evil. He is still alive to talk about it. That MEANS something that cannot be forgotten.

  5. I was a very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me… It was her beautiful younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight mini skirts, and generally was bra-less. She would regularly bend down when she was near me, and I always got more than a nice view. It had to be deliberate because she never did it when she was near anyone else. One day her ‘little’ sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived, and she whispered to me that she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn’t overcome. She told me that she wanted me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister. Well, I was in total shock, and couldn’t say a word. She said, ‘I’m going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want one last wild fling, just come up and get me.’ I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door, and headed straight towards my car.

    Lord… And behold, my entire future family was standing outside, all clapping! With tears in his eyes, my father-in-law hugged me and said, ‘We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn’t ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family.’

    And the moral of this story is……..Always keep your condoms in your car.

  6. Is it only me imagine the howls from the media if National had done what Jacinda just did with the CGT, they really are whipped, being a sub should be uncomfortable but clearly not, where is the baying for blood, have I even seen a flip flop derisory term. And as for Matthew Hooten, with friends like that who needs enemies.

    As I would never vote for any other party currently in Government, and I assume there are others, if there is a successful leadership challenge, then you are too stupid to be in Government. If you do not think that Simon is a good leader of the opposition, you might be right, but he would be a bloody good PM.

  10. Well its seems that all is not well in the Land of the lucky country at the sunshine end.
    MORE than 18,000 manufacturing jobs have been wiped out under the Palaszczuk Government with the sector now employing its lowest number of workers since the 1990s recession.

    Analysis of official jobs data has revealed the loss of thousands of manufacturing jobs has been offset by an explosion in publicly-funded positions over the last four years.

    https://www.couriermail.com.au/business/manufacturing-sector-sheds-18000-jobs-under-palaszczuk-government/news-story/712df35f76f4cc53267cee3bd0765f85?fbclid=IwAR1VaaIEQtS26h13B17ynD76ZVgGXXcieLoP90K3gjf9oJsYVBBbmzIKkeE

    So they didn’t like Newman and instead voted for a couple of luvlies. Very few women leaders have what it takes in politics. We have had a few. Not one has been a good leader. From Shipley to Richardson to Clark or Arden.
    IMHO neither Bennet nor Collins will be any good either.
    Deputies perhaps.

  11. So Romney will be in the list of get rid of’s. Willy wanker.

    A good look at his history might be interesting.
    Republican Senator Mitt Romney said the conduct by US President Donald Trump and his campaign outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report left him “sickened” and “appalled” – marking one of the first prominent Republicans to make such critical comments of the president in the aftermath of the blockbuster investigation.
