  1. The man calls himself a Scholar.

    In reality he is an educated idiot. Proof:

    “I have argued, along with former colleagues, that it was a retrograde move to remove politicians from the promotion of local democracy.”

    and

    “We stop pretending that politics and local government don’t go together. Evidence shows that where candidates are identified with a political party, then their chances of electoral success increase exponentially.”

    While he is slagging Wayne Brown off and saying that candidates are better served by aligning themselves with politicians or a political party, they do better.

    The people of Auckland have just proven him wrong. Cindy saw to that.

    • Auckland’s new mayor, Wayne Brown, will roll back many of the advances achieved over the last 12 years.

      1) What the cfuk would she know? The stupid bitch lives in Perth, WA.

      2) What advances???

      • BRG, this newspapers commentator seems to know fuck all about the NZ Local Body Elections here, while being a Perth WA, resident.

        The idiot seems to have very little knowledge of local NZ issues and what actually caused a low turnout in the polls. He seems to have no grasp, that Ratepayers have turned off Councils because their employees just do not listen to them or work on their behalf, hence the apathy by a low voter turnout.

        This is a great example of someone being an idiot and opening their mouth to confirm it.

        This is also proof that the NZ Herald is a shit newspaper with shit editorial staff by deciding to publish a weakly and poorly argued matter.

        • Very disappointed that Paula Southgate got back in as mayor of Hamilton. There wasn’t much in it between the two candidates but woke old Hamilton voted in stronger numbers for the sitting mayor. It is a very woke council so F++k knows what it will be like from now on. Roll on three waters and all that shitty stuff from the greens and liarbor.

          • Lizzie, as far as this Government is concerned Three Waters is a done deal and will go ahead.

            What people like Paula Southgate who did little to oppose it, Jacinda Ardern, Nanaia Mahuta and the promoters who have pushed and fostered it, have not seen is the very big pushback that is coming from the ordinary man in the street, who is not yet aware of the huge impact Three Waters will have on them, or their wallets.

            Nor do I think most of the Councils and people like Paula Southgate realise, or if they do, they have not explained to their ratepayers, that when Three Waters comes into effect, EVERY Council will loose between one third and half of their income which is collected by Councils through the water charges and water components of their rates bill. This lose of income will have to be made up somehow.

            Ratepayers are going to be bent over with water charges by the Three Waters Entity.
            and
            Ratepayers are going to be bent over by Councils trying to recover some of the income lost to the Three Waters Entity which Councils need to run their Council.

            Then the backlash will come. But those who have fostered it, promoted it or supported it like Stuart Crosby, Paula Southgate, Ardern and Mahuta will be long gone and will not be around to receive the punishment they so richly deserve.

    • However, by candidates aligning themselves with politicians or a political party certainly helps the voters make a decision.
      You get the little booklet, cross off everyone who states a party affiliation, everyone who endorses 3 waters, or maori wards, or climate change, everyone who greets you in a language you don’t speak, or thinks they’re running for parliament instead of council, and whoever is left gets the vote.
      Sometimes this means sending in a blank ballot paper.

        • Sooty, I have to admit I voted for one Maori candidate. She understood what Governance meant, Every other Maori Candidate confused Governance with Management or just wanted to look after “their people” and fuck all else. I did not waste the ink in my ballpoint on them.

          • I tried to push an “outside” maori now living locally in my District to stand, as he was well based, knew of the maori shenanigans and was most disturbed at some of the things that they were pulling.. Yet he seemed fair in his considerations.
            Was that set a thief to catch thief, though I figure he was much better than that.

            I found it difficult to resolve with one of my candidates.
            Seems like he made :—-
            “A Hearings Commissioner after completing the RMA Making Good Decisions course & have completed Institute of Directors courses on Governance Strategy & Finance.”

            I sort figure he will fall into line with the systemic ESG Enviroment, Social, Governance, when push comes to shove.
            Sort of makes sense now, when he proposed some private grandiose plans, that at the end of the day, was pulled when other participants could see a total loss of control.

            Now he is free, 🙂 but I hope he is cut off at the pass over the systemic RMA, and he can go and create with his own money etc.. a private company of all that good worldly governance

      • I believe the Labour and Green affiliated candidates have sign something saying they will abide by the national Labour or Green policies. To hell with local needs.

        I heard the Chairman of LGNZ ( Viking’s mate) saying they have tried to get online voting going for 6 years but GCSB oppose them all the time. Good on GCSB, stick to your guns. If people cannot fill out a supplied, printed form and post the prepaid envelop they are hardly going to be more motivated to do it online unless they want to “hack” the process.

      • So true McDuff. I put a cross through all those and more. I added; all those standing from outside the electorate, career politicians from any side, bike lane supporters, co-governance supporters, anyone who wanted to spend my money for their fun.

        That left 2 people in the whole booklet. I voted for both of them but no-one else.

  2. Well don’t worry nude Knut is lockstep with dl in wanting to change things for local body voting . I would be very worried about that.
    I suggest that get rid of race based seats for a start and unelected paid positions on councils.

    • Wiseowl, Nude Nut sure is in lockstep with wanting to change the voting system. but why? probably because Cindy has spoken and he is desperate to agree with her and seem relevant.

      Apart from race based voting he could not tell you what is wrong with the current voting system and if he and Cindy want to go to the Australian system where it is compulsory to vote, that is full of issues in itself and the Courts are full of cases afterwards where people did not want to vote but get fined because they didn’t vote.

      Nor can the useless prick in a suit, Nude Nut, tell you whether there would be a better outcome with any revised system.

      Nude Nut, the expert on everything, just does not know, but he thinks he does.

      If people don’t want to vote for useless politicians, they won’t and no amount of gum smacking by Nude Nut, Cindy or the rest of the left will not make people give them the outcome they want.

  4. More cases of damage done by the COVID-19 vaccines continue to be published in the medical journals, and now Japanese researchers have published a couple of cases of unusual blood clots found through autopsies after the Pfizer COVID vaccines that seem to corroborate what some funeral home embalmers are also reporting in terms of strange blood clots found in the bodies of dead people.

    “These 4 provinces are Russian, but they were
    assigned “Ukrainian” at birth. Recently they have
    come out as trans……they are border-fluid regions and
    their sovereignty is non-binary…. they are Russians
    trapped in a Ukrainian body…. they have made the
    decision to transition…. their pronouns are now
    dpr/Ipr…. as allies we must support this transition,
    and condemn the transphobic attitude of Westerners”.

    I know he was previously gagged by her minders after he shot his mouth off so he will be chomping at the bit.

    I imagine the lights on the 9th floor will be burning well into the night after the fantastic election result.

    Ardern is now toast so after a quick wedding and a few compulsory visits to primary schools she will be gone.

  7. “Envy of the world” I hardly think so. A UK correspondent writes on the state of the appallingly expensive and wasteful National Health Service:

    A recent NHS experience …… My Ex husband called doctor in morning as had stomach pains and doctor called back in afternoon. Doctor asked my Ex if he could come into the surgery and Ex said no as he was in so much pain and vomiting, so the doctor did come out and said it was one of three things which were all serious. He immediately called ambulance and said it would be there in about half an hour.

    Ex husband later rang a friend who notified our son he was waiting for an ambulance. As neither of us could then get any response from my ex by phone we assumed he had been taken to hospital. Just a chance phone call over 3 hours later found my ex was still waiting alone for ambulance so after a 20 mile dash to his home I called 999 to be told the wait is 9 hours and she said she had told the doctor this. I managed to get him down the stairs and into car and 25 mile dash to A&E where we were told there is a 7 hour wait to see anyone and nobody is allowed in to wait with patients.

    Five hours on the phone the next day trying to find out where he was and what had happened to him revealed he was in recovery after emergency surgery. Turned out he had a strangulated hernia. After visiting him I would say that he was lucky he had a surgery team who acted quickly and has been looked after well, but I wonder whether he would have survived if he had waited the full 9 hours for an ambulance.

  10. Two gay gentlemen Phil and Paul were walking through a zoo. They came across the gorillas and after a while they noticed that the huge male gorilla had a massive erection.

    This fascinated the gay men so much they couldn’t take their eyes off of it. Paul just couldn’t bear it any longer and he reached into the cage to touch it. The gorilla grabbed him, dragged him into the cage and screwed him for six hours non-stop.

    When he was done, the gorilla threw Paul back out of the cage. An ambulance was called and the man was taken away to the hospital. The next day Phil visits him in the hospital and asked, “Are you hurt?”

    “AM I HURT?” Paul shouted, “Wouldn’t you be? That big ape hasn’t called, he hasn’t written, “

  11. A nun was brought to the hospital in agony.

    Her sisters said they had found her writhing in pain on the floor clutching her crotch naked. She was supposedly getting dressed. The young nun was sedated and given morphine but refused to talk about what happened. Finally the mother superior was brought in and given privacy with the girl to extract the truth so she could be treated.

    “What pains you sister”

    “Oh mother superior I can’t speak of it, especially not to you”

    “But it is sinful to cause yourself pain by being ashamed of your actions, self destruction is a sure path to damnation after all”

    “Okay, mother superior, I forgot to blow out the candle”

    • WG,

      Even the Gates funded WHO has stated on various occasions that the Polio epidemic was well and truly over and that the re-occurrence of Polio was due to the (Bill and Melinda Foundation) Polio vaccine.

      Did you know that Polio was a seasonal spreading disease, and linked to the seasonal breeding cycle of the (flying) insects infected with the parasites that carry it? Or that it is also carried in African countries by intestinal parasites?

      And that Gate’s push for us to eat insects to save the planet is doomed as insects carry all sorts of diseases and parasites,

      And then you have the flying army of Gates engineered mosquitos bred in the millions per week and released in 11 different countries, the closest being Australia?

      Polio, another disease that Ivermectin could easily eliminate with early treatment or prevention.

      Fiction or Prediction?

      Star Trek Next Generation:
      Season 1 Episode 21, Symbiosis. With a lookalike Bill and Melinda.
      While observing a solar flare, the Enterprise happens to pick up distress calls from a breaking-down freighter. Two of the six people aboard get killed as there’s no time left to beam aboard properly because the cargo was sent first, yet the other two crew members seem to care only for the freight. Their passengers, from their neighbor planet, contest ownership because their agreed payment aboard the freighter was lost. It’s their only produce, vital for the other planet since it was struck by a general plague, yet Dr. Crusher soon realizes it’s not really medicine as they have no plague symptoms, yet suffer immensely without it

      Season 1 Episode 24, Conspiracy.
      Captain Walker Keel, an old friend of Picard’s, uses a top-secret frequency, thus excluding informing Riker, to summon him to a top-secret meeting with two other captains. The vague innuendo about a plot to take over a strategic sector of the Federation by replacing mysteriously dying Starfleet officers doesn’t quite impress Picard, but he reconsiders after Keel and his crew die in an explosion. So he intends with Riker to visit Starfleet HQ, where he will dine with admirals and their aide Dexter Remmick, while Riker keeps an eye on admiral Aaron, who insists to visit the modernized Enterprise, actually carrying an alien brain-parasite.

      Those “infected” by the parasite change tune, go all woke and tyrannical, and operate from the same playbook to take over the galaxy.

      Why it Gates trying to get rid of meat and veges and get us eating parasite ridden insects?

  12. From News talk ZB:

    Local politics isn’t national politics necessarily, but the change that the polls have indicated is coming next year for the government, manifested itself in a small taster on Saturday.

    The country swung to the right, in some cases significantly so.

    I am convinced that if Phil Goff and Lianne Dalziel had hung about for another crack, they would have lost. Labour-backed Efeso Collins didn’t just lose, he was thrashed.

    The bloke in Wellington was in charge of a shambles of a city whose pipes were exploding, and a Let’s Get Wellington Moving programme that was comedic. The bloke who was allegedly the favourite to replace him was a Labour MP and was endorsed by our Prime Minister no less. He got thrashed as well. Who is electing a Labour MP to run anything?

    So, between Collins and Paul Eagle, that was zero for 2 for the Prime Minister, who went out of her way to put her political heft behind them. If those two results alone don’t send chills down the spines at Labour HQ, nothing will.

    In Christchurch, a good, conservative, go-getting bloke who had run his own business got the job. The council also swung right.

    In Dunedin, the incumbent was booted out for a bloke and various members of his ticket that wanted more parking, fewer cycleways, and less messing with roads.

    In essence, we have had enough. The woke world of buses that don’t come, cycleways that bugger everything up, we have had enough of it all. There are a lot of councils and a lot of individual stories, but overall, the message for change is impossible to escape.

    Plus, the relationship between central and local government is in real trouble now, especially over things like Three Waters.

    It wasn’t up to much before Saturday. It is in even more dire straits now. This is yet another reason why I have argued all along the most contentious of Labour’s policies around centralisation and ideology will, ultimately, never see the light of day.

    What central Labour love is telling you what to do, but not at the expense of not being in power.

    The messaging around their demise next year is real and growing stronger by the day. They are arrogant, but not entirely devoid of brain power, and you can’t miss the writing on this particular wall.

    Collins and Eagle were poster boys for the Labour Party and look at what happened to them. The Labour brand is toxic and possibly permanently damaged.

        Now he has to suck shit and go back to the old one and hope lairbour will put him on the list, because none of his electorate will vote for him.

    • Bob, those who think local politics is not about national politics is just plain thick.

      Here is why.

      Central Government keeps dumping legislation, costs and compliance onto local Councils and expect Ratepayers to pay for them. This legislation is not specific, generally, to one Council but every Council throughout the land and as such the legislation, compliance and costs becomes a national issue.

    • What a load of hyperbolic garbage ! Democracy is the big lose,r because his mates did not get in —those that voted exercised their democratic right as did those (at least some) who did not vote. Those in the later quite possibly did not like any of the candidates they could vote for, therefore abstained and there is nothing wrong with that.

      • They all seem to think that if the turnout had been higher, they would have won. But as Saggy pointed out a bit earlier, why should the vote proportions change if more people voted? If less than 1000 people is a valid sample size for an accurate poll, why isn’t a 30% turnout enough to ensure a fair and democratic result?

        14

        0

        • Leo its a well known fact that low turnout in local and general elections = favour the right and high turnout = favour the left.

          Right leaning voters still vote but will chop and change who they vote for if the dislike their candidates, lefties dont change their vote if their horse is unappealing, they just stay home and dont vote.

          Im always intrigued why all the polls dont ask/show the % likely to actually vote. Theres no point saying 60% labour 40% national if only 25% of labour voters and 80% of national voters will actually cast a vote as that can completely skew the results.

    • I reckon they should put homework ahead of protest. I can’t find the link but I recall reading an article suggesting that the Main Trunk line was already running to capacity. Most freight moves at night but the daylight hours are needed for maintenance.

      Already Auckland commuter services are stuffed. The Eastern Line between Britomart and Ōtāhuhu “will be closed for most of” next year from March 2023 until December 2023.

      • Nasska, I can tell you for a fact, despite what KiwiRail and the Government would like you to believe, the Main trunk Line is definitely not running to capacity.

        In Japan where the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) runs at 240kph, they travel at no closer than 2 minute intervals on the same track from each other.

        In New Zealand trains on the North Island Main Trunk run no closer, than 20 minutes to each other and these slow trains run at no more generally than 70 kph max and then only over relatively short lengths of track.

        Often there are no trains for hour upon hour. Now tell me that they are running to capacity.

        I see it every day, my property overlooks the Main trunk Line. Now tell me that is running to capacity as NZ Rail claim..

        • Fair enough & I’ll believe a person’s own eyes before a press release from government or a corporation any day. I think the 70kph restriction was brought in by the safety Nazis in response to car & truck drivers testing the Darwin theory at railway crossings.

          In safety mad NZ the heart wrenching pleas of a “bereaved mother of nine (was ten)” take absolute precedence over productivity & common sense.

          In any case the only medium/long distance passenger transport with a hope of succeeding would be copied on the old railcars of half a century ago.

          • Nasska, agreed about the only redemption for passenger services would be to reintroduce a rail car system.

            As to Health & Safety. I have quite a number of friends here who work for KiwiRail, they have a minimum 45 minute H&S Toolbox meeting every morning and then another one when they arrive on track site. They have to be off track 10 minutes before any scheduled train passes and can not go back on until 10 minutes after any train has passed. And if any machinery has to be moved, this has to be done and got off the track, 20 minutes before any train passes. Then it has to get shifted back on. Productivity is absolutely appalling.

            Then you should see the rorting if any of the Gangs are away from here in say the South Island.

  15. Chris Trotter assesses the weekend’s local government election results, looking at how ‘the Right’ won and lessons for ‘the Left’

    By Chris Trotter*

    The Left have a whole lot of lessons to learn from their “shellacking” in Saturday’s local government elections. Sadly, the chances are high they’ll learn none of them.

    The response of the Auckland Left has been particularly infantile – and hypocritical. It was National Party activist Hamish Price who responded most effectively to the Woke Left’s horrified reaction to Wayne Brown’s decisive victory over Efeso Collins in the Auckland Mayoralty race, with the wickedly pithy tweet:

    “In 2019 Auckland elected an old white guy as Mayor of Auckland against Person Of Colour John Tamihere. But that wasn’t racist because Phil Goff was backed by Labour.”

  16. They never give up on attacking Trump.
    Kiwi Chris Liddell’s key role prising Donald Trump from White House revealed

    New Zealander Chris Liddell copped flak for his decision to stay in a senior Trump administration role following the January 6, 2021 US Capitol riots.

    National reversed its position on supporting Liddell for the OECD’s top job.

    Then-leader Judith Collins was scathing in her assessment of Liddell, according to the Herald’s report at the time.

    “The rioting that took place in the US Capitol was a disgraceful attack on democracy that has rightly tarnished those who incited and enabled the violence,” Collins said.

    “Mr Liddell’s ties to the Trump Administration cannot be overlooked here, making it difficult to see how he would be suitable to uphold the OECD’s strong commitment to democracy.”

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/kiwi-chris-liddells-key-role-prising-donald-trump-from-white-house-revealed/EURC7G5Q6VB5VDTGXMVI3XWWJA/

    Reading this confirms that the nats are a bunch of gutless wankers and are not to be trusted. Collins is a disgrace and should be fired out the back door. couldn’t be more left is the bitch tried.
    No wonder she never supported Ellis.

    ……”Some of the disclosures made by children from the creche included cakes and raisins being put up their bottoms, that Ellis killed people with axes, that he pushed children into a manhole with gorillas, smuggled them through dungeons, buried them in coffins, that children were made to kick each other in the genitals while adults stood around them in a circle playing guitars, and that Ellis’ mother had hung them in cages from the ceiling.

    There was no physical evidence presented to court, despite some children undergoing invasive examinations. There were also no adult eyewitnesses. Ellis was found guilty based on the children’s evidential interviews and courtroom testimony. “…….

    How could a jury of supposedly “normal” citizens believe that crap. Christchurch is indeed the Village of the Damned.

      • The stories were implanted by people with an agenda. The kids were coached in their testimony & rewarded for getting their fantasies to align with the prejudices of those running the witch hunt. As such the children are not at fault but the parents should be bent over a greased goat & sodomised to death.

        Yet that still does not excuse the twelve imbeciles who convicted Ellis based on nothing but childish vagaries. Surely most of them would have been parents themselves & supped the crap offered with a very long spoon. Kids can have imaginary friends, nightmares, dreams, believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus & Jesus Christ.

        It would be a harsh world when kids were not listened to but their stories need to be sifted by wiser people than University educated sooth sayers.

        • Nasska…
          We have had this conversation before…this Christchurch creche investigation was at a time when the feminist movement lobbying resulted in big criminal law changes. A significant change IMO was doing away with the required trial judges warning to the jury that it was dangerous to convict on uncorroborated evidence. Failing to give that warning would have resulted in a mistrial. That opened up the way for ‘she said, he said’ only trials.

          Old rape and indecency crimes were rewritten to become ‘sexual violation and unlawful sexual connection’. Penetration could be consented to but consent could be withdrawn at anytime after it, and failure to comply became rape. Police and CYFS sexual assault teams were staffed with new age feminists and the mantra of “women must be believed” was extended to “children don’t lie”.

          I listened to a talk given by one of the CYFS psychologists involved in the Christchurch creche inquiry. She gave the following by way of example of why children don’t lie and like women must be believed….it involved a creche in Florida where children were being sexually assaulted. Frightened children told their parents that workers at the creche would often pull the heads off babies, which of course was not believed by the parents. It transpired later that the creche workers kept birds that they called ‘their babies’ and would pull the heads off the birds in front of the children to demonstrate what would happen to them if they told what was going on at the creche.
          I have no doubt that these CYFS workers in Christchurch creche case were absolutely influenced by this Florida investigation.

          • I have not the slightest shadow of doubt that they were “absolutely influenced by this Florida investigation”. What I am saying is that the inferences were a load of crap at best & social engineering by mad feminists at worst.

            Just because something has been instanced has never been good cause to throw rational analysis out the door. The CYFS are overstaffed by overpaid & overeducated fools……..their pursuit of Ellis proves it.

            …….” Police and CYFS sexual assault teams were staffed with new age feminists and the mantra of “women must be believed” was extended to “children don’t lie”. “…….

            The Police & CYFS can believe in what they wish. In a Utopian world the jury system as designed would see through the sham yet here we have twelve individuals who were too fucking thick or too fucking gutless to question the shit that was spread in front of them. I’ve always held that were I one of those twelve Ellis would have walked regardless.

            To be a juror is to accept responsibility to question, to doubt & to reject the impossible. In the Ellis case, not one performed their duty.

              Seems like a few of those Christchurch jurors made it back onto Bain’s second trial…

                Meant to add that this was also the dawning of the suppressed memory syndrome where a 40 year old woman could wake up one morning, suddenly remembering that she was digitally penetrated by her father when she was two years old, despite having no previous memory of it and her complaint being acted upon by the New Age Constabulary to wit two freshly qualified lesbian detectives.

    • Did anyone listen to michael laws today about the ellis case?

      I didnt follow much of the goings on with it but turns out the cuzi bro shit just got embedded in nz law by the supreme court setting the precedent on friday.
      Apparently audrey young wrote a great piece on it but its paywalled, perhaps someone here with access could copy paste?

      • Nurse resignations, nurses “starting” although starting stats include those who transfered to different area/dhb whereas leaving is classed as anyone who resigned voluntary so i assume mandated sackings are excluded?

        Massive upsurge at the start of this year, perhaps many just moved around the country to escape a shit dhb? Its not like we had a massive influx of foreign nurses.
        I suspect major fudging of those numbers of “starters” as i specificaly requested only the resignations yet the felt the need to mention they would include the “starters” which is weird because anyone thats done oia requests will know that those fuckers dont include one word extra then they need too or release any extra information then whats actually requested.

  21. So apparently 64000 people decided all on their own to deliver their votes for auckalnd Mayoralty on Saturday morning.

    Preliminary results for Auckland Council released today show left-leaning council candidates Julie Fairey and Kerrin Leoni have flipped two seats that went to right-leaning candidates on Saturday.

    Fairey won one of two seats in the Albert-Eden-Puketapapa ward, beating Communities and Residents (C&R) candidate Will McKenzie by 551 votes. Based on progress results on Saturday, McKenzie had a slim majority of 286 votes.

    Labour’s Kerrin Leoni also overturned the 150-vote margin of C&R’s Tracy Mulholland to record a 278 win in the Whau ward.

    The preliminary results were based on 64,000 votes being returned on Saturday morning. The progress results counted the votes up to Friday night.

    The large number of votes on Saturday lifted participation by Auckland’s 1.2 million eligible voters from 31 per cent to 35 per cent.

    That bridge is getting cheaper by the day .
    Large numbers of leftie voters. U know the ones that really really wanted to vote on Saturday morning on their way to footy.
    Be interesting to look at those votes and determine their validity.

  22. I see a sportsman got a get out of jail free card by a dud judge!
    Can’t even tell you what sport he plays. Probably rugby or leaque, I’m picking!
    Sports codes governing bodies need to shape up.
    Sportsmen should not get a free run because of who they are!

  23. Another whale stranding at the chathams. Who needs japanese “research” boats when a simple beach or sand spit can slaughter them.

    There bes an earthquake coming, the whales always seem to coincedentally get real messed up just before a doozy of a rattle. Please flatten wellington if it does happen, preferably on a day parliament is sitting.

  24. OOh the western Media are alarmed and shocked as missiles hit Kiev and other cities in Ukraine. Just what the fuck did they expect? For Putin to roll over and say “bomb a few more Russian Bridges, we got lots of them, but we wont retaliate?” If you are going to poke a bear, make sure you got a long stick. Ukranian top command are idiots and have essentially given Putin an excuse to take the gloves off and turn Ukraine into a wasteland. Not going to end well for Zelensky and the twats supporting him. I see that the Ukranians have aslo destroyed all the bridges between Belorus and Ukraine. Looks like they want a bloodier nose than they already got….
