    • Thanks Webwrat and the transript is good.

      This reveals the murderous coverup and intentions of the Doctor Fauci, FDA, NIH, CDC, and can MedsafeNZ really say they do not know how the USA operates, then they are negligence and incompetence.
      The same video..
      FATHER CALLS PHARMACIST AFTER SON DIAGNOSED WITH MYOCARDITIS CAUSE BY THE SHOTS

      .
      Those people who became accomplices thinking they are under an umbrella of Immunity to prosecution may not work, when things are hidden, deceptive, as it is bad faith, totally fraud in NZ.

      However it seems that the USA had set up a legal cover back in 1984 and probably in support of swine flue vaxx in the late 1970’s that was immediately pulled when it was figured there were 50 deaths, and many other debilitating injuries.
      .
      From a comment on the bitchute vid.:—
      Not Scaring people to take the Vax!?!?! is legal?!?!?!?!
      FYI, Not providing “Informed Consent” about Vax injury is THE LAW!!!!
      She said it, telling ppl about potential vax injury will scare them away from the injection.
      .
      Here is the regulation that enables such medical misinformation/lack-of-info to be “legal” to spread:
      .
      FDA said in the Federal Register: “However, although the continued availability of the vaccine may not be in immediate jeopardy, any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation’s public health objectives.”

      .
      I know this happened in the USA, and so the Federal 1984 law is the ruthless mask to allow for the carnage of collateral damage, with no accountability.

      If New Zealand does not have such law in place, then we may have an angle of further attack to those administrators of health and etc.. negligence & incompetence of a combination of a deceitful, arrogant, ignorance.

      • It seems that if people can afford to put expensive solicitors to why their claim is turned down, then ACC will settle.
        They do not want to be challenged, where evidence is bought to to Court, where the public will learn of such things.
        For the rest of people who can not afford, then they are just that systemic collateral damage. 🙁

  1. Webrat, I initially didn’t refuse the vaccines because I was anti vaxx ,it was because my system is anti medicines ,over the years I’ve had some bad side effects from shots including in the early 80s a shot for some exotic diseases before a trip to central and south America that laid me low for about a week afterwards.
    I’m now very happy about the hiccups I’ve had with medicines that pissed me off at the time, fuck Pfizers snake bites.

    • I have had all the vaccines prior to Covid. I remember upon hearing that a vaccine had been developed,Instinctively knowing that it was too soon. I decided then and there I was going to be test subject. It’s that natural instinct. Now I’m becoming very wary of any medicine.

        • When incompetent dear leader and director general of sickness started telling us to have them, it was enough to stop me even thinking about it. I had watched Dr Malone and Dr McCollough and decided no way was I going to line up it was toxic. Those four people made me decide. I have not been anti jab in the past but sure as hell am now.

          • A good catch & reminder there Pinky1
            How soon many of us forget as that bridge head was expanded with the PCR tests, denying other repurposed medicines & treatments. then the supposed good, reworded definition of vaxxes, going into denying ‘informed consent’ and etc..

            Occasionally I have heard a mention of the PCR test, and figure that is still in full use at 45 cycles to sweep in all colds & flues to keep the numbers high when the numbers need to be stacked more higher.

            any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine [& PCR test cycles] cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine [& PCR test cycles] will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation’s public health objectives.”

              • I have a minor quandary when writing flu, or flue, flus or flues but not really keen on writing influenza’s and then whether an apostrophe in the abbreviated again with a vowel ending.
                The other part is spellcheck, does not like ‘flus’ but is ok with flu’s but I do not to possibly own flu’s, or is it be possessed by “them”?

                So RM you are right, though it is probably based on an Americanized spell check. 🙂

  2. Complaints about vaccinations, mask exemptions jam Human Rights Commission

    People seeking mediation through the Human Rights Commission are facing delays because of an “unprecedented” number of complaints and inquiries.

    Figures provided to RNZ under the Official Information Act (OIA) show a provisional 9932 complaints and inquiries were made in the 2021/22 financial year – thousands more than any other year stretching back to 2015/16.

  3. Mars Wrigley apology: Snickers fans slam company’s apology to China in fear of losing sales

    Snickers fans are threatening to boycott the chocolate bar after its parent company Mars Wrigley apologised to China for calling Taiwan a country in a recent new product promotion.

    The release of the limited edition Snickers Bar caused a social media storm on Chinese app Weibo after screenshots emerged of the product’s marketing stating it was only available in the “countries” of South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

    South Korean boyband BTS also featured on the promotion which was quick to receive the attention of thousands of Weibo users from China’s mainland, where any reference to Taiwan as an independent nation is seen as controversial.

    Mars Wrigley quickly published an apology on its Snickers China Weibo account following the uproar, acknowledging that they had made an inaccurate statement.

    “We are aware of reports on Snickers-related activities in certain regions of Asia, take this very seriously and express our deep apologies,” the statement which was posted on Friday read.

  6. In its latest move to damage your health, the government is forcing councils to fluoridate water:

    14 councils have been issued Fluoridation Order in late July.

    They are Far North District Council, Whangarei District Council, Western Bay of Plenty District Council, Waitaki District Council, Waipa District Council, Tauranga City Council, Tararua District Council, Rotorua Lakes Council, New Plymouth District Council, Nelson City Council, Kawerau District Council, Horowhenua District Council, Hastings District Council, Auckland Council.

    Costs are estimated to exceed $150m, which do not include ongoing operation and maintenance. The bill is to be covered by ratepayers.

    Beside being a budget burden, water fluoridation reduces children’s intelligence by as much if not more than Leaded petrol and will affect them for the rest of their lives.

    “Green 2019 showed IQ damage in the womb from fluoridated water, especially for boys. Goodman 2022 showed that Iodine deficiency in the mother (common in NZ) made this even worse. Till 2020 showed IQ damage from bottle-feeding with fluoridated water. Riddell 2019 showed an increase in ADHD from fluoridated water.»

    Indiscriminate Fluoridation Order violates Section 3A of Health Act 1956. Which states:

    “Function of Ministry in relation to public health.

    Without limiting any other enactment or rule of law, and without limiting any other functions of the Ministry or of any other person or body, the Ministry shall have the function of improving, promoting, and protecting public health.”

      To be on target, surely the only fluoridation should be in a number of fizzy soft drinks, and fruit juice drinks, and do not forget the CODY’s.
      Why are they not targeted ! ! !

    • Rainwater got deemed “dangerous to drink” last week due to chemicals being detected in it all around the world yet adding dangerous chemicals etc is perfectly fine and one must drink it to get healthy//

      My argument with flouride is the people that need it are the ones least likely to drink tap water. There would be far more benefit in making beverage companies flourudate their tooth rotting bullshit they poison the world with.

      • Isn’t that shit made with the same fluorinated water?
        I once had a shop that sold coca cola. The coke part used to come in sachets and you just added the water to the mix. It was all done by machine. But the water used was fluorinated. All the big outlets that sell from serve yourself units use the local water.

  7. One day a guy was browsing in an antique shop. He didn’t find anything he liked and was about to leave, when suddenly at the back of a shelf he spied a brass rat. It was fascinating, the detail was incredible, he couldn’t take his eyes off it. He brought it up to the counter to ask how much it was.

    “It’s $20, but the sale is final, no refunds or exchanges.”

    The guy figures that’s extremely reasonable, so he pays for it. As he’s leaving, the shopkeeper yells after him, “Remember, that sale is final, no bringing it back.” The guy thinks that’s strange, but off he goes walking down the street, examining his new brass rat.

    As he gets to the intersection, he looks right for traffic, and sees a rat running towards him. Strange, he thinks, he looks left for traffic, and there’s three rats running towards him. He crosses, walking quickly until he gets to the next intersection. Sure enough, there are rats running towards him from both sides. He makes a break for it, running as fast as he can, rats coming out of every building as he makes his way through town until at last he comes to a lake. With a heave, he throws the brass rat into the lake, and all the rats swarm past him into the lake and drown.

    He thinks about this as he catches his breath, then he makes his way back to the shop from which he bought the brass rat.

    “I told you, no refunds on the brass rat,” the shopkeeper says.

    “Oh, I don’t want a refund,” says the man, “do you have any brass politicians?”

  8. Its winter time in nz but somehow our media is in hysterics at normal winter weather occurances. A skiff of snow and a few days of frost during winter is now deemed “an unusual cold snap”.
    Im guessing 3 days of sunshine during summer will now be declared a heatwave and a sign of catastrophic climate change.

  9. This is a vexed issue, but they seem dead set on destroying NZ education by catering to the lowest denominantor.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/streaming-in-schools-the-seismic-shift-thats-looming-in-education/5PHYI2SJDDXOSNCICP5LBMJL5M/

    Streaming has its place, especially in Maths and Science. Those currently failing need to look at their attendance and behaviours in the 1st instance. Actually being at school, in class, doing work gets results. Removing streaming won’t fix this issue.

    • All the better for Asian parents who push their kids through after-school tuition courses, to do the schools’ job and to give their children a competitive advantage.

      Does general Polynesian popular culture understand the concept of “academic competition” or the value of “scholarship and study”?

        Re; ‘Does general Polynesian popular culture understand the concept of “academic competition” or the value of “scholarship and study”?

        Experience gained over many years (No details) indicates that the answer is ‘ONLY if there is a ‘Non-Polynesian’ in the mix, as a parent or grandparent, and even then, ONLY if said individual actually recognises the value of ‘Education’ and has managed to escape the stifling, highly-negative grasp of PI society.

        It’s not for nothing that ‘Islanders’ are regarded as ‘manana on wheels’ in some circles and would rather sit and do the absolute minimum necessary than actually ‘work’ as it is defined in the Western world, while ‘academia’ is largely derided and regarded as being a waste of time.

        These attitudes are of course largely ignorance-based, especially in the area of academic achievement and that is is possible to graduate and actually ‘improve’ oneself is so much a ‘foreign’ concept as to be incomprehensible.

        Better to sit in the sun and do as little as necessary (Although if there is alcohol or Kava available things change immediately, and the men especially become ‘experts’ on all things…), and deride the ‘Asian kids’ who get all the prizes. It’s the easy (Lazy) way out…

  10. so we are supposed to believe that Russia is shelling a Nuke plant, that is being guarded by Russian Soldiers? True most of the MSM and the worke west are moronic, but even Zelensky must admit this is absurd.

    “Ukraine accused Russia on Saturday of firing rockets at the facility. Zaporozhskaya, which is Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, is located in Ukraine’s southern Zaporozhye Region.

    While Kiev’s claims have been echoed in the Western media, the plant has been under the control of Russian forces since late February, and Moscow on Friday accused Ukrainian forces of the shelling. Russia has appealed to the UN and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to intervene and force Ukraine to cease firing on the plant.”

    https://www.rt.com/russia/560414-amnesty-apologizes-report-critical-ukraine/

    You know its all over for Zelensky when Amnesty puts in the boot…..

    “International human rights group Amnesty International has issued an apology for the consternation triggered by its recent report, which, among other things, accused the Ukrainian armed forces of violating “international humanitarian law and endanger[ing] civilians.” The organization has, however, refused to disavow its findings.

    In an e-mail sent to Reuters on Sunday, Amnesty said that it “deeply regrets the distress and anger that our press release on the Ukrainian military’s fighting tactics has caused,” as cited by Reuters.

    The rights group went on to explain that its “sole objective” in publishing the analysis was to ensure that “civilians are protected.” It also made it clear that it “fully stand[s] by our findings.”

      • “FS so how are they going to translate the parts of an engine?”

        If the concept exists in Te Reo already, for example, the concept of a spark igniting something flammable, then Te Reo could use that term for “ignition”.
        On the other hand, if the object never existed in the Maori world, such as “crankshaft,” then it would be much easier to transliterate straight from the English word rather than wait for a committee in Wellington to synthesize a new Te Reo word for “crankshaft” that literally means “a whole lot of sticks joined together at right-angles” (from Google “he maha nga rakau kua honoa ki nga koki matau”) and makes no logical sense at all.

        In Japanese, “crankshaft” is クランクシャフト (kuranku shafuto) and is a transliteration of the Western concept.
        The Japanese katakana phonetic alphabet is great for ripping useful concepts from the Anglosphere in a matter of hours. (The Chinese have to form a Beijing-based committee to choose which kanji characters to use.) Not so in Japanese.
        If you can pronounce the loan word using Japanese vowels and consonants, then it’s yours for the taking.

        In Mandarin, “Mickey Mouse” is “Mi-lao-shu”
        In Japanese, he’s “ミッキーマウス” (direct transliteration as “Mikki Mausu”).

        I suspect that chauvinistic cultures with fragile egos, such as Maori and Chinese just can’t abide transliteration as a way to add new words. They have to have “purity of sound,” i.e., any new word has to sound like they themselves invented it. Too embarrassing to show that you had to borrow a foreign concept.

          • Japanese has four “alphabets,” two of which are phonetic.
            a. Kanji (those complex pictographic characters originally from China)
            b. Roman characters (ABC)
            c. Hiragana ひらがな characters (phonetic characters for Japanese-origin words only)
            d. Katakana カタカナ characters (phonetic characters for non-Japanese-origin words)

            When you see a カタカナ character word, you can be pretty sure it is a loan word, transliterated from (usually) English.

            Japanese children start out learning to read hiragana characters.

            One thing I don’t like about writing in Japanese is that you don’t insert spaces between the words (unlike in Western languages). (But you get used to it.)

    • You would get on with McCoskrie the Mad like a house on fire. You both know deep down in your widdle hearts what is good for everyone. It must be good & it must be true because you think it is & you’ll amass facts to support your prejudice.
      Knowing what is good for everyone is a gift the two of you share with Pol Pot, Stalin, Jacinda & Karl Schwab to name a few.

      Those who are not control freaks content themselves with the knowledge that freedom includes the right to succeed & a right to fuck up.

        Sober up ole chap and you may see the reality.
        As i pointed out other day, adding heaps more drugs and easier availability dosent solve our drug problem. Your next stoner brainwave will have us redefining drugs abd addiction.

        Dont get me wrong dude i love me a good bit of substance abuse too but to think we should be encouraging more of it is fucking retarded.

        Weed for many is what booze used to be for you, now why dont you drink anymore?

        As ive said before id fully support freedom to get fucked on drugs booze etc but dont make it a burden on the rest.
        Zero public healthcare and treatment for addicts
        Zero bene for addicts
        Hell even make them pay for all costs involved shall they cause accidents etc.

          You may well have an opinion on the subject but McCoskrie & his weird, fanatical religious mates have a shared obsession to make their opinions law & therefore binding on everyone.

          It is personal freedom that is at stake.

            The problem isnt drugs or alcohol the problem is our govt and our systems have made it possible to be a viable lifestyle.

          • A man walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “Beer for me, beer for you, and beer for everyone who is in the bar now.” After drinking, the man starts walking out of the bar. “Hey, what about the payment?” yells the bartender. “I have no money,” answers the man. The bartender hears that and beats the man as hard as he can, then throws him out into the street.

            The next evening the man walks again into the bar and says to the bartender, “Beer for me, beer for you, and beer for everyone who is in the bar now.” The bartender thinks to himself, “The man can’t be stupid enough to pull the same trick twice, tonight he must have enough money”, and gives beer to everyone. After drinking, the man starts walking out of the bar. “Hey, what about the payment?” yells the bartender. “I have no money,” answers the man. The bartender hears that and beats the man as hard as he can, then throws him out into the street.

            One evening later the man walks again into the bar and says to the bartender, “Beer for me, and beer for everyone who is now in the bar.”
            In disgust, the bartender asks “What, no beer for me this time?”
            “No,” answers the man, “you get violent when you drink.”

  14. We need to change the term unvaccinated. Like uncircumcised it implies the untainted or unmodified are unnatural or at least inferior or requiring of something. I prefer to use untainted in reference to mRNA experimental poison as I am otherwise fully vaccinated and the opposite of circumcised is natural (as nature intended) or intact.
    The persecution of people for making their own health choices that are protected by human rights legislation should be curbed immediately and all commitments to the evil Pfizer company made public and rescinded prior to fast court proceedings for billions in compensation.
    A major inquiry is needed to uncover when those that have made these unscientific fascist rulings, knew they were wrong and the death penalty reinstated for the genocide of the NZ public that they are responsible for.
    Every news outlet that has promoted their fantasies and lies should be fined and for the most evil of them seizure of all assets and liquidation.
    Inland revenue needs to look at all who have profited from this infamy and seize every cent.
    Then we need to teach at all educational levels the evil that transpired so it can never be repeated.
    It’s time to be kind

  15. Alice followed the white rabbit down the tunnel and found herself in a very strange place where there was a fancy dress party in progress and lots of noise. She asked the rabbit the name of this strange place.
    “Aotearoa”, he replied.
    “I have never heard of that,” she said to him.
    “Some man came up with the name to assist in giving Maori a history.”
    Just then a man started to stamp his feet and roll his eyes and poked out his tongue shouting and waving a stick.
    “I think he is having an epileptic fit,” said Alice.
    “That is the Mad Hatter”, replied the rabbit, “he always behaves like that if he can’t get his own way.”
    “Golly,” said Alice, “I would be sent to my room for behaving like that.”
    “Who is that lady with the big smile handing out all those piles of money?”
    “That is the Queen of Hearts, she will give you some too, if you ask.”
    “Golly,” Alice said again. “won’t she run out if that’s the case?”
    “No, she will print more.” The rabbit replied.
    “I keep seeing a smiling cat which disappears just when I want to see it better.”
    “That is the ghost of Winston, enjoying the chaos he caused.”
    “Who is the woman in the feather cloak, my friend Greta would be so upset to see how many birds were killed to make that.”
    “Shhh,” said the rabbit, “she likes to think she is a conservationist! Don’t say anything Alice or you will be punished for hate speech.”
    “What? exclaimed Alice “for speaking the truth?
    “And I can’t say anything because I am a white rabbit, and will be accused of racism.”
    “I have never heard such nonsense,” replied Alice, “colour makes life interesting and attractive, it is bad behaviour which is intolerable.”
    “It is because of perceived past wrongs,” mumbled the rabbit.
    “More nonsense,” said Alice, “what is past is just that, past! Not a thing you can do to change it. Just get on with things. I don’t like Aotearoa, Rabbit, I want to go back to New Zealand, where everyone was happy before I heard of all this sick thinking.”
    “I will come with you Alice, I don’t see why I should apologise for being white anymore.”
    “Quite right,” said Alice, “that mad queen will run out of money soon, then Aotearoa will become Blunderland!”

  16. They should be charged with manslaughter? She was taking Insulin and Warfarin.

    An elderly woman died less than 24 hours after arriving at a rest home, having not been given her regular medications.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/08/08/woman-died-a-day-after-arriving-at-rest-home-not-given-medication/

    It was found that the woman, who had diabetes, did not receive her regular medication, most notably insulin, and died 24 hours after she first arrived at the facility.

    The HDC found two nurses and the Oceania rest home itself had breached the code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights for failing to provide the woman with reasonable care and skills.

    “People in an aged residential care setting frequently present with multiple comorbidities and complex health conditions, and often are not in a position to advocate for themselves or alert others to issues of concern,

    On the woman’s admission assessment it was made clear that she was receiving warfarin and insulin however she did not receive the potentially life-saving medications when she needed them.

    • This in the same country that sees the future of medical services as being provided by these fat, arrogant know-nothings with attitude. Instead of real doctors we’ll have to make do with pretend doctors:

      …… “But there’s another answer to help ease the primary care crisis – nurse practitioners.”…….

      https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/nurse-practitioners-part-of-the-solution-for-shortages/ZXLX7HNMIBAV5UBVWIGIOBCWN4/

      These are the same “professionals” who can’t even follow up with prescribed meds. We deserve better.

      • Having been in the care of a nurse practitioner last week she was as good as the doc but better because she had time to listen.
        Most docs are run raggard and in my wife case missed a marker for Cancer.
        Fortunately I went to my Doc and he looked it all over and picked it up.
        Its now an urgent situation to fix.
        No pain no nausea, just feeling very tired.. Lots of secondary spots but now to find the main one.
        Have to say so far they have been good.

        They are just all over worked around here and my own Doc is 73 and stopping at the end of the year. 5 of his colleagues have died this year.

          The way I see it is that if anything goes wrong with me medically for the foreseeable future I might as well save myself the effort involved in approaching the patronising fuckwits & go straight to the undertaker.

  17. ‘IT’S ALL THE SUPPLIERS FAULT’
    New analysis from Infometrics, commissioned by Foodstuffs New Zealand, showcases the increasing cost of grocery supply as inflationary pressures build for suppliers. Foodstuffs says their buying costs are now rising at a +7.9% annualised rate. (That is more than the June CPI which was up +7.3%.)

    https://www.interest.co.nz/business/117078/review-things-you-need-know-you-sign-monday-few-retail-rate-changes-new-build-costs

    Foodstufs like the Banks can go cry a river. Like the banks they make huge amounts of money because the competition uses the same margins.
    Bank margins have gone from !.25 -!,5% a few years ago to 2,5% or more today. Lack of competitive action allows them to abuse their licences to rort the borrowers.
    Same deal with the supermarkets. Pride of place allows them to do the same.

  18. NOT SO SUNNY
    In Australia, insurance major Suncorp is pushing through some chunky premium hikes. Their premiums are rising at the highest pace in almost a decade, the company’s full-year results indicate. Profits are falling in all their key divisions (and recall they have agreed to sell their bank to ANZ). Even their New Zealand profits are retreating. And this is despite rising premiums across all their brands.

    Why would we be surprised?

    Again there is no competition. to much desktop and very little actual inspections and risk weighting.
    and of course that bloody climate change is increasing the floods and fires.
    You know that eh.

    In NZ its either IAD or Vero (Suncorp).

  19. Cost increases appear to be driving the push to more intensive housing especially in Auckland

    The latest quarterly building consent figures suggest the number of new homes in the construction pipeline is flattening off after peaking in the third quarter of last year.

    According to Statistics NZ, the number of new dwelling consents issued throughout the country peaked at 13,251 in the third-quarter of 2021. Since then it has declined in each subsequent quarter to 12,284 in the June quarter of this year. That’s down 1.8% compared to the June quarter of 2021.

    So the decline has been more of a gradual easing than a dramatic slide and the figures for the main centres of Auckland, Wellington Region and Canterbury show that new dwelling consents for the second quarter are still running ahead of those for the second quarter of last year. Meanwhile consent numbers in Otago are unchanged from a year ago.

  21. Without all hte information and not able to cross check Trump wins again.
    What the writer forgets is that some of our own get away with this type of rort which is why there are so many gravesites and little hills around the country.

    An ethics-free Trump tax rort

    And finally this week, Donald Trump has just given us the perfect illustration of Benjamin Franklin’s remark “Ïn this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes” after emerged that Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s first wife, has been buried near the first hole of a Trump owned golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    A strange place you might think until you find out that under the New Jersey Tax Code a cemetery is exempted from all property, income and sales taxes. And therefore, as a tax researcher noted this is a trifecta of tax avoidance planning.

    Although you might think it’s incredibly on-brand for Mr. Trump to have been involved in such clever planning, it does raise some interesting ethical questions about how far you push it as a tax planner. This is one of the issues about dealing with a client like Trump. If you don’t tell him this opportunity exists and he finds out from another adviser, then you’re out of work and you probably won’t get your fees paid either given what we know about him. On the other hand the rest of the family may well have consented to this happening and it’s not entirely all down to Donald Trump.

    Tax planning is a really difficult ethical issue. One of the advantages of the New Zealand tax code, fortunately, is it doesn’t have so many specific exemptions as we see in the US. Advisers everywhere have to be alert to these opportunities, but then have to consider the ethics involved. And people may be surprised to hear this but, in many cases, when aggressive strategies are presented to taxpayers they will decline them as being beyond the pale. But clearly, when Mr. Trump is involved, nothing is beyond the pale.

    • Thats beyond scraping the gutter.
      The biggest fuckup was that muppet apologising 22years later because he was entering politics, next biggest fuckup was bullshitting and saying his apology was because it was nagging at him and not due to his political selection.

      Everyone has a past and near all of it should remain in the past, fair enough if someones getting exposed for heinous historic acts but a bit of a scrap at school ffs grow up and get over it.

        sometimes you just have to tough it out and bite back as well. That’s what they should be doing.
        Look at the way the sex stories just died out and Labour ran around thumbing their noses at everyone because the Nats never had the balls to attack.
        Like all wars, attack is the best for of defence.

  22. Poll shows National and ACT could form a government at next election
    Bridie Witton18:17, Aug 08 2022

    National and ACT would gain enough seats to form the next government, the latest TV political poll shows.

    The new TVNZ/Kantar Public poll, published on Monday, had National at 37% – down two points from the March poll. Labour was at 33%, down two points. But ACT had jumped four points, to 11%.

    Jacinda Ardern remains ahead as preferred prime minister at 30%, dropping three percentage points from the last poll, but National Party leader Christopher Luxon had also dropped three points to rating at 22%.

    The Green Party was down slightly on 9%.

  23. I remember when I first moved to Auckland many years ago.
    “The City of Sails”
    My wife thought that this was a beautiful name.

    The other day, she said, “You know. Auckland should be renamed ‘The City of Cones.'”

        • Mrs Odakyu-sen is a very observant woman. The bloody things are multiplying & may yet take over NZ! From the font of crap:

          …….”Figures reported in the Herald in February last year estimated there were 1 million road cones in the country and between 170,000 and 200,000 cones needed annually. That figure was expected to grow due to tightened health and safety standards and the number of major infrastructure jobs around the country.”…….

        • Its a gravy train for council/govt buddies.
          Bulk buy road cones for 10bux a pop then hire them out for $1 per day, most cones pay themselves off by the time roading contractors have even got to the job site and leaned on their shovels.

          All of our roading and traffic management is an absolute rort. Our neighbours were felling trees near the road for a few days and needed traffic management. 10 cones a few signs and 2 guys…. 3k per day! Be lucky if theres 20 cars per day travel that road.

            • A very common occurance.
              Down here we know a roads about to get attention as the cones turn up 1-2 months prior, the real bad roads get a new permanent road sign of 50km and we know they aint getting fixed for a year or 2.
              Nz roading and other infrastructure crews are absolutely useless.
