  2. Lizziep, I hate to upset you this early Lizzie but the Met service are reporting that this big wet isn’t going to finish until next Sunday the 28th ,bugger.
    On a more positive note there are many scientists coming out and stating that human beings don’t have the capacity to process insects in their diets, apparently it’s something to do with “Chitins” that are poisonous to us and cannot be processed out of maggots, crickets,scorpions etc etc, oh dear.
    Salty cracker today.

    Bluebird employee under ‘investigation’ following anti-Māori language comments
    Maxine Jacobs19:00, Aug 17 2022

    A Bluebird NZ employee is under investigation after their online comments left a bad taste in the mouth of one TikToker user.

    The chippie company, which produces some of Aotearoa’s staple party classics, has been quick to remove one of its managers from the job while it investigates comments they left online.

    The new reo Māori wrapper was designed to celebrate Māori Language Week, but instead sent some people into overdrive. (Includoing the tik toker who had nothing better to do whilst being paid by the taxpayer.).

  5. Lawsuits Coming for Entities That Don’t Change COVID Mandates After CDC Update: Lawyer
    By Zachary Stieber
    August 16, 2022 Updated: August 17, 2022

    Entities with COVID-19 vaccine mandates that don’t pay heed to the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance will face lawsuits, a civil liberties lawyer says.

    “We don’t have a new lawsuit in the works yet. But if we see that colleges and universities and public employers are not responding to the new CDC guidance the way that they should be, then we would certainly tee up a new lawsuit,” Mark Chenoweth, president and general counsel at the New Civil Liberties Alliance, told The Epoch Times.

    The response to the updated guidance should be, at a minimum, a lifting of mandates for people who have recovered from COVID-19, he added.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/lawsuits-coming-for-entities-that-dont-change-covid-mandates-after-cdc-update-lawyer_4667572.html?utm_source=newsnoe&utm_campaign=breaking-2022-08-17-1&utm_medium=email&est=S9tlKRPfzJUvC9R8mvJmJw1Kg1FK115ODXZQ%2BZCtroGtbCx%2BAfzKFaZhtZ7Kwvg%3D

    And there is a lot more to come. Already some hospital systems have been sued and l;ost in court with damages awarded.

  6. Continuing the death of comedy, Jerry Sadowitz performance cancelled at Edinburgh Fringe festival. Aparrently some people felt “unsafe” during his performance. Ah, didums.

    “opinions such as those displayed on stage by Sadowitz are not acceptable and The Pleasance are not prepared to be associated with such material”. The missed point being is that jokes are not opinions.

    Then the organisers, having silenced Jerry said, “The Pleasance is a venue that champions freedom of speech and we do not censor comedians’ material.”

    So pleased I have older comedy series at home as they fast get removed from online sources.

  9. Corrupt extreme left mayor, Rachael Reece, claimed this was a once in 100 year flood. Residents recalled much worse flooding in the 1950’s. Party media then changed her quote to a 20 year event,

    In fact it’s just a wet patch only affecting flood plains and a few slips on steep land. Build on swamps, river flats, reclaimed land, you get water.

  12. Ma and Pa were two old hillbillies living out on a farm up in the hills.
    Pa has found out that the hole under the outhouse is full.
    He goes into the house and tells Ma that he doesn’t know what to do to empty the hole.
    Ma says,
    “Why don’t you go ask the young’n down the road? He must be smart ’cause he’s a college gradjyate.”
    So Pa drives down to the neighbour’s house and asks him,
    “Mr College gradjyate, my outhouse hole is full, and I don’t know what to do to empty it.”
    The young’n tells him,
    “Get yourself two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse. Put them both under the outhouse and light them both at the same time. The first one will go off and shoot the outhouse in the air. While it’s in the air the second one will then go off and spread the poop all across your farm, fertilizing your ground. The outhouse should then come back down to the same spot atop the now-empty hole.”
    Pa thanks the neighbour, then drives to the hardware store and picks up two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse.
    He goes home and puts them under the outhouse.
    He then lights them and runs behind a tree.
    All of a sudden, Ma comes running out of the house and into the outhouse! Off goes the first stick of dynamite, shooting the outhouse into the air.
    BOOM! Off goes the second stick of dynamite, spreading poop all over the farm.
    Then, WHAM! The outhouse comes crashing back down atop the hole.
    Pa races to the outhouse throw open the door and asks,
    “Ma, are you all right?”
    As she pulls up her panties she says,
    “Yeah, but I’m sure glad I didn’t fart in the kitchen!”

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/claire-trevett-was-gaurav-sharma-just-a-rogue-mp-or-a-warning-sign-for-pm-jacinda-ardern/5CRA33BH7RXIL6UN6GAR7GWH6U/

    Paywalled so here

    Hamilton West MP Gaurav Sharma has found out the hard way that when it comes to Labour’s caucus, the squeaky wheel doesn’t get the oil – it gets taken off the cart.

    Sharma’s suspension
    from Labour’s caucus will not be the end of the problem for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
    The broader problem she faces is the risk of more squeaky wheels, and how they could be dealt with.

    Sharma took umbrage when the party whips – backed by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s office – took steps to deal with what Ardern has said were multiple complaints from a number of staff about his management.

    He is not the only MP to have faced such interventions, or to suffer consequences because of the treatment of staff. Others too may feel they were unfairly treated, or their side of the argument was not given enough credence against another.

    He is simply the only one who has imploded over it – noisily.

    Sharma was never going to win this one.

    He was disciplined for going public, breaching caucus confidentiality and airing discussions with his colleagues, rather than for his alleged bad treatment of staff.

    That intervention into his staffing also seems to have been fair: Ardern pointed to a string of complaints from multiple staff, not just one with a grievance. It pointed to a pattern – and Labour cannot be seen to tolerate MPs treating staff badly.

    But there will be others within that caucus who are quietly nursing sentiments similar to Sharma’s – although there will be little sympathy with his methods of dealing with it.

    It is understandable Sharma decided not to attend the caucus meeting at which he was suspended. He had discovered the other MPs had met in secret without him the night before – and had reason to think that meant it was a pre-determined outcome.

    But he had already ensured that through his own actions anyway.

    By the time Sharma started releasing screengrabs of messages from other MPs, there was no choice but for caucus to suspend him. He was lucky he was not expelled immediately.

    Ardern has ruled out trying to find out which MPs were behind those messages, but any who might have contacted Sharma to support or say they shared his views will now be very nervous indeed that Sharma starts to name names.

    The reason he was not expelled was to provide the natural justice Ardern had promised – and to try to stem Sharma’s outbursts.

    She also made it clear that one more misstep would result in expulsion.

    Ardern has to turn to the wider question Sharma’s case poses: how did things get to this point?

    How did an MP end up so cornered they felt they had no other option but to go public, explosively so?

    Ardern cannot afford to take the view that Sharma was an isolated case and none of his concerns were shared by others. It may simply be that others were just too chicken (and too wise) to air them.

    She needs to ask if Labour’s management and oversight of its backbench MPs has come adrift – or was never put in place to start with.

    One of Sharma’s problems was that he felt as if nobody was on his side.

    Caucuses are inevitably a forum in which patronage exists, where there are favourites and there are problem children. He clearly felt as if he was up against the favourites, and never given a chance.

    The party whips are in a difficult place. It is their job to boss MPs around. They decide who gets leave, who does not and who has to do what. They discipline errant MPs.

    They get paid more than normal MPs and they earn every cent of it. It’s a job in which you cannot afford to like to be liked – the best you can hope for is to be considered fair.

    In her press conference Ardern said she had had very little to do with Sharma since he became an MP – she also said that the channels the MPs were supposed to use in times of trial was first the whips, and then her as leader.

    It is not easy for a new MP to simply bowl up to the PM demanding an audience. Nor does the PM have time.

    Sharma tried that but did not make it past her chief of staff.

    If the relationship with the whips sour, there does not appear to be a natural senior person for them to speak to. The caucus is too big and in Government everybody is busy with their own business.

    In short, they don’t have an “aunty” – the role the party’s former deputy Annette King used to play – dispensing advice, blunt reality and sympathy – and flagging it with the leader if trouble could be building.

    • MSM identify as the elite and part of the machine. How could they lower themselves to walk among the plebs. They certainly stayed above the frey on the Duck’s balcony instead of working to find out what the issues were with the parliament protesters. Imagine publishing the truth, that would have put them in an awkward position with their taxpayer funded paymasters.

    If I was the principal, everyone involved would be expelled.

    But that won’t happen, there will be restorative chats, much crying by the young thugs in front of very pissed off parents, promises to never do the same again, much staff PD on how to be more culturally sensitive in their teaching and to use more maori words in class too prevent these things from happening and probably a traditional Maori Blessing to reopen the school to ward away bad juju…

    Glad I was Terminated last year. I actually need to thank Herr Hipkins at some stage.

      “We have a wonderful student body and this is not reflective of the general values, attitudes and actions of the vast majority of our students.”
      So therefor why do the vast majority of the students miss out on two more days of school, to go along with all the lockdown ones. Perhaps it does give an accurate picture of the school.

      Good on Dr Malhotra for being honest with himself and the public by saying the evolving information has proved some of his initial thinking was wrong.

      The video needs to be shared very widely.

    Having one Costco shop in Auckland is not going to change the way people in Invercargill, Westport, Te Kuiti, Hawera or even Castlepoint shop. It may be of benefit to someone in West Auckland and the upper North Shore, but outside Auckland, really?

    • A form of media “hopium” of showing that the Labour Party agenda is achieving to bring cheaper groceries for the masses. …. yeah right …. like the cheap ev.cars for everyone. …. when the next step will have “smart meters” to control just how much juice can be allowed to an ev.car, if you comply & deemed socially credit worthy to have one.

      Sort of brings back the times of 3Guys warehouse style.
      Gubay, an Irish grocer, started in 1973 in NZ, and sold the chain to Progressive Enterprises in 1985.

      … Gubay asked the Minister of Trade and Industry Joe Walding [Labour Kirk government] to force Unilever and other suppliers to do business with him.
      However, an investigation found the suppliers were not breaking the law, and Unilever publicly offered to supply Gubay on similar terms to other buyers. …

    • Little is so unpopular. The woman scanning me at a medical check up this morning said staffing is awful with lots away sick and a lot who have found other employment so they are extra busy trying to push through the same number of appointments. She said the health minister doesn’t understand his job and we agreed the election was too far away with the state of health and everything else under this government.

      I had no trouble not wearing a mask at the imagining appointment apart from being asked if I had an exemption. I wandered into the medical centre pharmacy afterwards and they didn’t even bother to ask. Also not a problem at Mitre 10 with both of us shopping together maskless. Hubby and then had lunch at a local cafe and not one customer entering or leaving was seen masked. 🙂

      • I can’t fault your logic but the practise is entrenched. All cabinet ministers & High Court (& up) Judges are entitled to be addressed by the honorific. And there’s worse:

        “On relinquishment of or retirement from office……….. shall be eligible to be recommended for retention of the title “The Honourable” for life.” which I guess would be automatic.

        Another useful word with its meaning mangled beyond recognition.

      Many of them have after their high salaries, then the $$ left over, and have to find ways to spend it, in so called mission parameters.
      They also find ways how to tap into other streams of taxpayers money dished out by the government.

      Marae, fanny-oras, dropping off food parcels, and they are also including more than ethnicity.
      Food banks, even lunch for pupils, tap into that $$ stream.
      Dropping off oximeters, pamplets, brochures.

      Sometimes I think the Couriers and messages, see the flow and tag along, knowing they can tap into some more money and receive a bounty for the info.

      They have in this day age of logarithms, Artificial Intelligence, taken on a life of their own, as much of you, data, info, is out there, seeing you as a money source, to be connected into for $$.

  20. Artists to get 5% of re-sale price of artworks under new royalty scheme
    André Chumko12:00, Aug 18 2022
    A 5% royalty payment will be made to visual artists or their estates each time their work sells on the re-sale market, the Government has announced.

    The scheme will come into effect in late 2024, Arts Minister Carmel Sepuloni announced at {Suite}​ Gallery in Auckland on Thursday.

    The royalty will be available to Kiwi citizens and residents, and will also operate on a reciprocal basis for residents of the United Kingdom and European Union countries, meaning Kiwi artists will get a slice of the pie when their works are resold there, too.

    The MONSTERS at Pfizer Recategorized Miscarriages as ‘Resolved’ or ‘Recovered’ Adverse Events

    Dr. Naomi Wolf: (https://gettr.com/user/drnaomirwolf)”Pfizer notes the miscarriages as serious adverse events with moderate or severe toxicity ratings. However, all of them were recategorized, by Pfizer, in the internal documents under the category of adverse events that were ‘recovered’ or ‘resolved.’

    Like you had a problem when you had a baby. When you lost the baby, you recovered from that problem. It resolved the adverse event; the negative thing. The miscarriage is in the same category as a headache that went away. If you lost your baby, Pfizer said, ‘Your adverse event was recovered or resolved.'”

  24. Nose length is an indicator of the size of a man’s penis, science says
    “Big nose, big hose.”
    A study published in 1971 reveals that nose length was considered an indicator of penis size in ancient Roman society. This may also explain why nose amputation was a popular Roman punishment for criminals found guilty of adultery or sex offenses at that time. However, the relation between nasal size and penis wasn’t proved scientifically until last year, when a team of Japanese researchers claimed in their study that men having big noses are likely to have long penises.

    The Transport Agency expects new speed cameras to triple the number of drivers caught, increasing from 1 million to 3 million offences a year.

    The most extreme approach to “treat all corridors across the country with safety cameras” would have saved 2200-3400 lives over 20 years, hundreds more than the recommended option (1500-2400 lives).

    But it was too hard and costly to build and risked alienating people, the report to the board in March warned.
