  2. Morning all, happy and happy Saturday. Off to the big smoke to see the kids. Wonder if I’ll see a drive by shooting or a ram raid? Might pop down Queen Street and see how the homeless are doing. Will be back in time for tomorrow’s heavy rain.

  3. Saturday morning trivia with a serious side to it ,how the fuck does my Samsung Galaxy note cellphone recognize Jacinda Arderns image ? whenever an image of the POS appears in my screenshots, emails etc a note comes up “Horseface” this is something I’ve never programmed into the phone as I’m a technophobe and would have no idea how to do that.
    It’s a bit of a worry when your phone is doing stuff that you actually agree with but without any input from me the operator of the device, my phone is smarter than me and is capable of reading my mind ,,FFUUUCCKK.

  4. Steve Joyce nails it (again). Where’s this man when we need him.


    Steven Joyce: Hiding the welcome mat is making NZ poorer
    OPINION:

    “More data points this week suggest the New Zealand economy is becoming a slow-moving train wreck.

    Wage inflation is officially at the highest level in 14 years — back to increases last seen just before the global financial crisis.

    And it’s growing — the quarterly figures are all moving upwards, so there is more steam in this trend. Meanwhile, hourly wage rates are up 6.4per cent over the past year, which would be great if we’d all become that much more productive — but unfortunately there is no evidence for that.

    There are plenty of people, including the trade unions, who believe wages should be growing faster, given price inflation is now at 7.3per cent. It’s an understandable argument, but unfortunately it doesn’t work. Inflation adjustments to wages go straight back into cost increases, which drives price inflation up further. We keep chasing our tails and falling further behind. It’s that thinking that leads to the classic wage-price inflationary spiral.

    All the signs suggest we are beginning to enter just such a spiral. This in turn will give the Reserve Bank all the encouragement it needs to ratchet up interest rates still further to try to stop that happening.

    Despite the best rhetorical attempts of the Prime Minister and Finance Minister to place all the blame for our inflationary situation at the feet of Vladimir Putin, our domestic economic policies are making things significantly worse for us. And front and centre right now are the country’s immigration settings.

    By accident or design, the government’s “immigration re-set” is constraining our labour market to such a ridiculous degree it risks causing untold harm to the wider economy and society. Make no mistake — our ridiculously tight labour market is constraining growth and stoking inflation.

    There is so much form-filling now required for an employer to bring a worker into the country that so far, one month into the new settings, only one solitary skilled worker has made it through the process and been issued a visa.

    Which, let’s face it, is nuts.

    Things will, of course, speed up a bit, but if the settings remain unchanged there is no way the new system will meet the needs of our economy.

    We’ve had any number of stories this week about employers’ bad experiences dealing with the bureaucratic nightmare that Immigration New Zealand has become. Unlike the good old days, employers must fill in forms and gain formal accreditation from Immigration just to start the process.

    Then they must advertise the role to be filled domestically for exactly the prescribed number of days and to the prescribed format Immigration prefers, including wage rates, maximum and minimum hours the person will work, and a sufficiently detailed description of the job to be performed. Then, once they get past the checkbox charlies on that step, they must submit the proposed employment contract to see if that meets with the officials’ approval.

    This is where the bureaucratic over-reach really begins.

    Immigration officials are now pushing back on completely legal New Zealand employment contracts and seeking to have their preferred wording inserted instead.

    Who in hell gave them the right to demand an employment relationship that New Zealand law doesn’t even require?

    Actually, don’t answer. Probably the same people who demand those coming in from overseas in many cases be paid more to do a role than is the market rate in New Zealand.

    So has all this tangled set of hoops employers and workers have to jump through been created by accident or design? Is it cock-up or conspiracy?

    You’d be tempted first to think cock-up. After all, this is the crowd that has a fairly well-deserved reputation for poor execution. Only this week they revealed they are sending cost of living payments to dead people — apparently missing the significance of the word “living”.

    Sadly, it is the conspiracy theory that rings truer in this case. The current Government has set its mind against sensible levels of skilled migration which help New Zealand grow and become more prosperous for all of us. Its constituent parts, notably the unions, believe the isolationist “New Zealand for New Zealanders” rhetoric and that somehow they can constrain the labour market sufficiently to force real wages higher. That this form of market manipulation is just inflationary doesn’t seem to have occurred to them.

    It’s true that labour shortages are everywhere in this post-Covid world. But governments all over the world are responding by putting out the welcome mat and making it easier, not harder, for skilled migrants to arrive. They are advertising offshore (witness the West Australian government ads currently airing on New Zealand radio) and offering visa discounts and fast tracks through their processes.

    Why else would Anthony Albanese suddenly be interested in granting easier paths to citizenship for Kiwis who move to Australia? It’s not out of a grand sense of altruism, or a response to our PM’s persuasive rhetoric. They just need skilled migrants and we are a handy source of them, so they are making themselves more attractive for Kiwis to move there.

    Our Government of course is doing the reverse. Charging employers more to hire migrants, charging immigrants more, putting roadblocks in the way, and doing everything except look welcoming to people who might move here and contribute to our society.

    Given that we are starting to lose people as 20- and 30-somethings head offshore for delayed OEs and brighter prospects elsewhere, this is a highly self-defeating posture.

    There is a real risk that other Western economies do the right things and get their economies growing again, and we stay stuck in inflation without growth, the dreaded stagflation.

    The economic evidence that skilled migration boosts economies and societies is strong. Even the Government’s hand-picked left-leaning Productivity Commission has told them skilled migration doesn’t keep wages down, and in fact brings economic benefits.

    But the Government is determined to keep advancing their pet theories, regardless of the economic pain they cause.

    And this one is causing pain. When you go to the supermarket this weekend and wince, when you re-finance your mortgage and gulp, remember it is the Government’s migration policy, along with a range of other fiscal and economic decisions, that is helping shrink your spending power.

    Constricted labour markets in the current environment mean higher inflation and therefore, higher interest rates.

    Gummed up borders are part of a long line of policies that risk making the country smaller, and New Zealanders poorer. Our Government is creating a more inward-looking, less prosperous New Zealand. And weirdly, by design.”

  5. Don’t agree with Joyce.
    He continues the National party thinking that immigration drives the economy.
    Well of course it does but in a simplistic destructive way.
    First of all decide what is the productive driver of the economy ?
    The whole system needs to be reset but not nationals way.
    There are a couple of Australian commentators eg Judith Sloan and Terry Mcran that have a good grasp and another guy can’t think of.
    Mike Reddell also has a better handle on immigration policy for NZ.
    Look at the mess National left after their mass immigration policy.

    • Wiseowl, consecutive governments for 30 years have flooded our Country with mostly semi qualified or unqualified immigrants, 100s of thousands of them and how many new full sized hospitals have they built in the same time span ? ZERO and anyone having to visit one of those wretched places knows how bad it has become, even if your private health insurance premiums get to near unbearable levels DON’T STOP PAYING THEM..

      • Good advice revvy although those premiums can get pretty horrific when one reaches their 60s but yeah of you can afford it it could save your life.
        Wifey had carpel tunnel dealt to month or so back, going public was over a 6month wait but going private she was in getting surgery 4 days later. For a mere $500 excess it was well worth it.

        As for the joyce/nats immigration and govt prior well it was a total fail, in 20 or so years our population grew by a million people but infrastructure stayed the same with little to no new additions.
        Importing cheap labour dosent get us expensive infrastructure, opening the flood gates of imigration would be fine if they had targeted levy/tax on them to help build nz.

    • 105000 work ready people on the benefit.
      Take the money spent on polytecs, useless courses at woke universities and spend it at the coal face. Go back to allowing employers to have the money to train people. Go back to youth rates.
      Lack of youth rates are the driver behind the unemployed young people and the terror that those employed cause around the community. Too much money and no responsibility with it except to spend.

    • I don’t have medical insurance.
      I have been self-funding for over 30 years.

      I try to reduce the risk of bad health by not smoking, watching my weight, my diet, my stress and anxiety levels, and striving (very hard I might add) for a good work-life balance.

      • Quite Ofskyu-sen
        I took it out through my employer (I paid premiums) fortunate to have good health. Paid a fortune in premiums. I finally used it for surgery on my ear. I had recurring ear infections for several years and finally suggested to my doctor that perhaps I should see a specialist. Had a huge mastoid and surgery but my hearing is about 30% in my right ear. Despite hearing aids I can hardly hear. I think it cost me $10.000. I wish I had just put it in the bank. I would have had a huge chunk of change. I canceled it when I retired as premiums were so expensive. There was incentives or rewards for staying in shape and liking after yourself.

  6. The greedy and self serving IWI and Maori don’t give a stuff about and are quite happily work towards silencing the majority of New Zealanders voices when it comes to the new Water Entities Bill and legislation, but they are most pissed off when their voice is silenced in the same legislation.

    “When the Crown has chosen to put our iwi into the Entity C grouping with 40-plus other iwi, our voice, kaupapa, and opinion of our people will be compromised if we do not agree with the majority.”

    “Our tīpuna, our whakapapa, and our voice will not be silenced again.”

    Hopefully, this the start of the Musket Wars V2.

    • I am waiting for the announcement that it becomes 4 waters. It can’t be far away. It was suggested councils could keep storm water but they didn’t want only 1 of them , the next step is all water as drinking water has to be sourced from somewhere and the other 2 have to be discharged. The real game is giving the rivers lakes and sea to iwi.

    • The only way out of the radical maori agenda is to get maori turning on maori.

      Personally i think getting a legal definition of maori is the starting point, and do so by a reasonably high % of dna/bloodlines. That will make those just below the threshold turn on the more privilidged maori and kick it off.

      • The genetic threshold for an individual to be defined as “Maori” is a very controversial one.
        At present, all you need is one Maori ancestor so that you can claim “I feel Maori therefore I am.”

        If a single ancestor suffices, how small could the fraction likely be? Assuming four generations a century (25 years per generation) and the early contacts with colonizers starting, say, six generations ago (150 years ago, in 1872), then you could have a Maori ancestor 6 generations back (a great-great-great grandparent), making you 1/32nd Maori (assuming just the one Maori ancestor).

        Is 1/32nd (3.125%) enough to be Maori?
        (I personally believe that the percentage has to be at least 50%. )

        Looking at all the people in New Zealand who self-identify as Maori, what percentage would be at least 50% pure blood?)
        Next, let’s lower the bar to 25% (one grandparent (i.e, someone born in the 1940s or 1950s). What percentage of people who self-identify as Maori would be at least 25% pure blood?

        Is it even possible to accurately DNA test for the “Maori gene”? How would this lucrative gene be different from the genes of Cook Islanders or other Pacific Island peoples?

        One way would be for the State to set the magic % at a level where a majority of self-identifiers qualify as “Maori”. Let’s say that this magic threshold is 12.5% (an eighth).

        What happens if a 12.5% “Maori” marries a Han Chinese? Their children will have less than the magic percentage of special blood. The only way around this “dilution” is to bring in a rule than any documented “Maori” ancestor will give you the right to claim membership in the special club.

        This whole exercise can go either of two ways. One outcome is for the number of documented “Maori by inheritance” to rapidly grow over time. Another outcome (if a threshold level is enforced) is for the number of Maori to decline, and the pressures of inbreeding (to hold the line) to increase.

        Cousin marriage, anyone?

        • I am wondering what the percentage is for living in Ireland, England, Wales Scotland Japan, or many other countries? I think from memory you have to have a grandparent from the countries and it could be a grandmother? I am not sure, but that could be the starting point? Its all very difficult when this age of anyone who thinks they are Maori is, when anyone that thinks they are English etc etc still cannot live there if they don’t have the required parentage?

      • IASB. Absolutely right.
        Definitions are essential.
        Who actually are the beneficiaries of taxpayers largesse?
        And what is it that entitles them to taxpayers hard earned money?
        And do they really care more for the “natural environment “ than those who have managed successfully the growth that has fed ALL NZ for the last couple of centuries?

      • A part of the problem is that as per academia, media, politics, has made it that nobody really wants to be a New Zealander, a Kiwi.

        Is that because the New Zealanders have to work more harder, and pay more & higher taxes?

        Is it because their are more special allowances, benefits like the paid for tools to be an apprentice, that has in recent decades expanded in so many ways,

  7. Doug, the real game is ownership and control of water and particularly the money that can be milked from it. Period.

    Why, the Canoeists from Hawaiki do not want Storm Water is a mystery as most of the water which will fill up the Lakes and Rivers will come to this country from the Indian Ocean and then be deposited in their soon to be gifted Lakes and Rivers.

    But the Storm Water issue is a bit like like food isn’t it?

    You own and want the food you stick in your gob which has gifted to you by way of food parcels from the good people of New Zealand, but you don’t want to know the shit that is a by-product of said food parcel you have consumed and processed. How that works, I don’t know.

    • Storm water is a cost bourne by nature, maori want control of natural resource hence it would mean in the future they would have to bill themselves for the costs inflicted by stormwater damage caused by a resource they will inevitable own or control.

      Drinking water and sewage networks are 100% entirely a need for humans and can be used as blackmail to generate revenue.

    • Thats from back in march.

      I dont know if theyre gunna risk further drops in the polls and push ahead, equally if they dont then it will become a hot election issue and seymour will tear them to shreads on it… te reo luxtard will stay silent of course.

      I think they were naive on 3 waters and didnt expect such large pushback and most of it is due to the co governance iwi power grabbing aspect, its likely made them rethink the aproach to co governance.

      The only fair way to determine us by binding referendum same as the aotearoa debate. Question is tho are maori votes going to be worth 1 vote or 20?

        • It dosent matter when it was hooligan the point is the agenda hasnt been scraped and it will likely be brought to reality sooner rather then later.
          I have no doubt te reo luxon will continue co governance agenda, he will compromise by tinkering with 3 waters but in return give the bros more power elsewhere to compensate.

          NZs best case scenario is most of our politicians go for a flight together on airhorse one and it crashes into the ocean or a mountain, anything less then our country is fucked

        • There should be no need for a definition. Who cares?
          Really the essence of the issue is why do we have two classes of Kiwi’s and why does on class have privilege over the other?
          Why does one lot get tax payer funding and the other lot fund it because the first lot claim to have arrived first. (A disputable claim).
          same with business. Why are Trusts allowed to exist and be used as a tax free income vehicle by many?

          What happens if you are half Tongan and half Maori ot half Maori and half Chinese or any other combination of races e.g. Indian and Maori, Whiteman and Maori. Whiteman of many mixed races and Maori of many mixed races. There are of course plenty of them.
          IMHO this is why so many “maori” are so angry. Like men who wear beards, ” Becareful for they know not who they are”,
          Its a nonsense all round.
          No problem with Maori wanting to be what ever they want but the law should treat every citizen the same.

When you force and coerce people, you need to own the consequences 100%, the doctor has clearly had a very quick consultation in what this guy thinks of his advice.
    The governments and the TGA own this guys anger 100%, there day of reckoning is not far away.

    • Sure the Doctors, all health workers are mandatory vaxxed.
      The Doctors then had the sugar rush of bounty hunting their easily contacted patients.
      The Doctors Hippocratic oath is tossed, when he should be weighing up all considerations of medical effects.

      Call it following orders, or following the money?
      Just what does a mandated concentration prisoner wish upon his guards! Justice!!!
      But there is no justice, as immunity was granted, supposedly in good faith, but data, misconstrued, hidden, etc.. so No Good Faith. How long can they hide behind that?

      In following orders, that is passing their Doctors’ responsibility to other authorities, while using their own authority and controls in coercing, nor looking dutifully at what data, information, to be able gain “informed consent”.

      Little to no exemptions granted, so now why should any Doctor be expected to be granted an exemption and an ongoing immunity to Justice, when they have proved to be either or all;– negligent, incompetent, self-serving?

    The party’s big annual conference kicked off at Te Pae Convention Centre in Christchurch on the banks of the Avon River, with Willis delivering a rousing speech to 700-odd people.

    In a slickly produced start to the conference, Willis’s speech followed on from leader Christopher Luxon, who was introduced by his wife Amanda.

    • From Iaasb link above.
      …. protest is over “unworkable” regulations for farmers, “reckless” spending of taxpayer money and the “never-ending” lockdowns causing businesses to suffer.

      It is also calling for better property market conditions for first home buyers, better mental health services, the protection of religious rights and tino rangatiratanga (sovereignty) for indigenous people ….

      “tino rangatiratanga (sovereignty) for indigenous people”
      I wondered how that fitted in, and is a real deal breaker,
      So any “umbrella group” should sidle up to the Maori Party.

      All the twists and concerns in politics, but for me the aim is to finish the Labour Party rule, and get the seeds of an ongoing party well under way, particularly education, and changing the social welfare rights in believing in entitlement.
      To be principled to Freedom, Liberty, or even true to the original National Party Principles.

    • “BT wants sovereignty for indigenous people.”

      Can we have a definition of “indigenous person” or are you one if a) you have a drop of indigenous blood, and b) you self-identify as an indigenous person?

      You realize that the the Japanese are not the “indigenous people” of Japan. Nor would the Han Chinese be the “indigenous people” of Taiwan.

    • What is maori sovereignty? To eventually set up and reign over the other parties? then;—
      Or set up designated areas, regions, or districts, to be under this Maori Sovereignty.

      Area Based on what? The flow of water? The upper reaches of a water catchment, the view from designated mountains? etc., etc..
      Laws, based on mythology? and life in the past, like utu, etc., etc..

      But it was more originally based on IWI sovereignty, where Might was Right, then based more on a Patriarchy , exceptions where a woman controlled or was patronized by the patriachy.

Karen Kingston on how the drug companies have legally been able to stock pile vaccines ready for the outbreak, 3. Maria Zee from Aussie and the latest from Victorian Dan 4.

  13. Here’s one of those Luvley tenants that naaska would like for his rental house.
    Tauranga tenant ordered to pay $31k after damaging rental declared bankrupt

    Tenants who tried to cover up smashed-in and scribbled-on walls, broken doors, and urine-stained carpet in a rental property have been ordered to pay $31,000 in damages and costs – one of the largest Tenancy Tribunal orders in recent months.

    Chayse Sean Russell and Shaniz Roxzan Young were taken to the tribunal by the owners of a 16th Ave property in Tauranga. The pair moved into the property in July 2019.

    Twenty months into the tenancy, an inspection was carried out by the landlords Gordon and Susan Oakley who discovered extensive damage, deemed by the tribunal to be intentional.

    The damage included broken and scribbled-on walls, damaged doors, carpet stains and damage to parts of the kitchen and shower.

    The tribunal found at no point did the tenants alert their landlord to the damage, instead, they covered it up.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/bay-of-plenty-times/news/tauranga-tenant-ordered-to-pay-31k-after-damaging-rental-declared-bankrupt/ULYDL3KNGIABCU4MTTEC2FOU44/?fbclid=IwAR0HNHbYB9xvyPB1ne2ESgG0xp6R0ECVoOQ9vPEmSSzG93lrI3nhsaXpqp8

    Had the landlords come to us for advice about the contents. These two had done this to another owner and the property manager who arranged their move to this house did so knowing full well what the previous behaviour was. If I remember correctly he was also related to the woman, father possibly. His name should be out there as well.
    Anyone can be a property manager these days. He was abusive towards the owners over the whole thing as he had been to the ones before but there is no where to go with these complaints. Lot more to this story. Isn’t there always with these types.

    A lot of your older blog posts have gone AWOL, intentional?

    Nope. Enjoy them while you can before “fans” report them.

    Earlier I had heard that it was anything to do with MahutaCorp and thought it was some heavy pressure of ‘law fare’.
    Fuck Mahuta Corp.

    PS and enjoy Cactus Kate’s view of NZ’s beneficiaries that are taught they believe they should control New Zealand.
    She puts the finger on exactly how exposed New Zealand is in this ruthless world.
    Like how I joke that the Councils demanding control over people’s trees, bush, conservation, and when the Chinese want good “chopsticks” so be it and NZ will comply and will pay for the chainsaws to cut them down.

    • Curious :— Very good points there.

      There is an “urgency” in needing to know in that question that they systemically ignore and yet wasting time can be very dangerous.

      Like what line has to be crossed to be considered “unsafe”?
      What were the effects of being unsafe?

      To how long have they allowed the danger to continue?

  15. Just been yarning to my mate in WA, theres been a big egg shortage and he was stoked as there were finally some eggs at the supermarket. He lives quite rural but goes to town once every 10days or so for supplies but since march everytime hes been theyve been out of eggs, he paid 12bux a dozen for them!
    He looked at buying some chooks of his own but pullets have a few month waiting list and theyre 50-60bux each, mind you they would pay off pretty quick.

  16. Roving reporter Sagster checking back in after the march.
    Ok, so I was a bit disappointed with the turnout. I see the Herald say about 500. My guess is maybe round the 1000 mark. I was there as a protest against the government, not as a supporter of Tamaki. Good on him for rallying people, but his solution is nuts. He wants to be rid of Labour, National, ACT and the Goons Greens.
    Everyone was very well behaved. There were a few of the anti-protesters up by the museum, but they didn’t feature. Big cop presence at every possible access point to the motorway. They were making sure nobody was getting on there again.

    • Thanks Saggy, for nurturing the seed.
      From small beginnings, the ideas, reasoning, the questioning is maintained.
      Maintained and when the rest are more ready, to be rebuilt back better. 🙂

  17. What’s she going do about it? Nothing. Chippy?

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/08/liquor-store-owner-says-ram-raids-having-impact-on-hard-working-kiwis-calls-on-jacinda-ardern-to-take-action.html
    The owner of the Mt Wellington liquor store ram-raided on Saturday morning is fed up with the lack of punishment given to thieves and is calling on Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to take action.

    “They came in prepared, they had a sledgehammer, so my counters have been destroyed. There’s no cash kept on my premises, but, it’s fairly clear that they are stealing to order,” he said.

    “There have to be consequences for people who do this. If it is kids that have done it, what are their parents doing? Where’s the liability with the parents,” Barr said.

    “Something’s happened in New Zealand, something’s happened with the legal framework and things happen because they’re allowed to.”

    “Unfortunately the costs just get passed back to the consumer. Your insurance costs go up, it’s just a dreadful situation. So just stop thinking about yourself and think about the consequences of your action for other people. Just hard-working Kiwis. It’s very, very disappointing.”

    • There will come a time, and I suspect we’re getting close, where vigilante justice is going to be meted out on these arseholes. (Like the finger loppers in Piopio). I hear there’s is a civilian patrol now in St Heliers. I’m sure there are more. If these patrols catch these thugs, I don’t think a call to the cops is going to be their immediate action.

      • The average citizen thinks that the government has made a contract on their behalf where Joe Blogs gives up his right to bear arms & protect himself, his family & his possessions in return for the protection provided by sworn police officers.

        Effectively he has been conned. There is no contract & little protection.

  18. Public stop clean get-away.

    Dramatic footage provided to 1News shows alleged armed robbers fleeing the scene of a store robbery on Auckland’s Queen St on Saturday afternoon.

    During the confusion one member of the group appeared to get left behind and was later cuffed by the police, he said

    “They returned to grab him but all the commotion and people around who had detained him made it too hard for the offenders. Therefore, they had no choice but to leave him behind.”

    Footage shows a member of the public kicking the getaway vehicle before he was warned off by someone wielding a hammer.

  19. God created Heaven and the Earth.

    Quickly he was faced with a class action suit for failure to file an environmental impact statement. He was granted a temporary permit for the project, but was stymied with the cease and desist order for the earthly part.

    Appearing at the hearing, God was asked why he began his earthly project in the first place. He replied that he just liked to be creative. Then God said, “Let there be light”, and immediately the officials demanded to know how the light would be made. Would there be strip mining? What about thermal pollution?

    God explained that the light would come from a huge ball of fire. God was granted provisional permission to make light, assuming that no smoke would result from the ball of fire: that he would obtain RMA consent; and to conserve energy, would have the light out half the time. God agreed and said he would call the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”. Officials replied that they were not interested in semantics.

    God said, “Let the earth bring forth green herb and such as many seed”. DOC agreed so long as native seed was used. Then God said, “Let waters bring forth creeping creatures having life; and the fowl that may fly over the earth”.

    Officials pointed out this would require approval from the Department of Conservation coordinated with the Heavenly Wildlife Federation and the Forest & Bird Society.

    Everything was fine until God said he wanted to complete the project in Six days. Officials said it would take at least 200 days to review the application and impact statement. After that there would be a public hearing. Then there would be 10-12 months before the granting…

    At this point God created Hell.
