  1. Call me a tall poppy cutter but I’d so enjoy seeing the entitled wanker Max Key lose his pants, not that he’d have to worry for long his daddy the worlds most accomplished smoke and mirrors man big John and a few million Chinese dollars would bail the prick out.

  2. What is it about people that talk fast?
    Are they ever able to stop and think about what they are saying or are they so capable that they do in fact have a brain that is way ahead and skipping over itself to expel whatever it is they are spouting.
    I listened to Trish Rankin on the rural programme this morning. A representative of rural dairy woman.
    Boy could she talk! Like a Hosking speed.
    It was hard to keep up and analyse what was emitted in speed bursts.
    These people seem to capture positions because they can talk. A bit like politicians.
    She was lauding some meeting where all these experts were discussing ideas about arresting climate change. You know, new types of plantain, seaweed for cows etc. millions being spent in this new industry of yobos trying to prevent nature.
    Is it possible to make these fast speakers stop.take a hold for a minute and slowly analyse the facts? Think about reality?
    Or do they carry on speeding towards a solution that doesn’t exist.
    Sunday rant in bed .

      FWIW: Unfortunately the days of ‘BBC-English’ (Received Pronunciation / ‘Proper’ English) are now long gone and due to the influence of both visual media and largely Afro-American ‘pop’ music, Kiwi’s, especially those of Gen Z and Milleniall Generations have become notorious for being fast speakers, which, when combined with poor diction, results in what is best-described as being ‘Gabble’. Add to that a dose of pacific Island English (No, that’s not an oxymoron) and the result is as you describe, and in some 50 years the ‘English’ used will probably be largely unrecognosable.

    • She was lauding some meeting where all these experts were discussing ideas about arresting climate change. You know, new types of plantain, seaweed for cows etc. millions being spent in this new industry of yobos trying to prevent nature.

      She ain’t no representative of rural women, at least not the ones that work for a living, on farms and in rural businesses. If what you say is true she is a kept woman, a soy latte drinking one at that. And the only reason she classifies herself of rural, is maybe she lives on a lifestyle block, which does not make her rural. Her expertise is probably gleaned at the local cafe along with her soy drinking friends. She will be “that person” that real rural women try and avoid at any rural function.

      She sounds as daft as the woke business people that came back from a “Cloud” conference a few years ago and said get our stuff into the “Cloud”. When I asked what was the “Cloud”, several replied “Oh I think google stores your data up in the clouds, in big balloons.”

      Living out of the city does not make you a rural woman, no more than standing in a garage makes you a car!

      No self respecting rural woman that works in the rural sector would say anything like that. All the ones I know think the same as their husbands.

      [1] That Climate Change is a crock of shit, as the seasons go through cycles.
      [2] The NZ has the lowest farming carbon footprint in the world.
      [3] That NZ is in the grips of a communist takeover.

  3. It seem that making jet fuel is more valuable for fuel companies than making, diesel hence the price for diesel goes up. With the amount of kero used by cindy , shaw , robbo and woods this year they are the reason diesel is more expensive than premium petrol at the moment.

  4. Mrs Bazza tells it like it is:

    Heather du Plessis-Allan: Reckless climate tax will wreck industry

    OPINION

    “The Government can’t force this version of its climate tax on farmers.

    It’s economically reckless. It will shut down up to one in five sheep and beef farms.

    This is the prediction from the Government’s own models.

    It will cause a 24 per cent drop in sheep and beef revenue. That works out at $2.9 billion a year. That’s more than we spend on our entire education system annually.

    It will cut jobs, close businesses and kill towns.

    The tax breaches the Paris Agreement that demands action “in a manner that does not threaten food production”. This nukes 20 per cent of sheep and beef food production in a food-producing nation.

    Our farmers are the most climate-friendly in the world. If they stop exporting 20 per cent of their meat, some other farmers somewhere else in the world will take up that slack. Those farmers are less climate-friendly. The sheep and cows they farm will hurt the climate more than the sheep and cows we’re getting rid of to help the climate.

    This tax will remove 1.6 megatonnes of sheep carbon emissions in New Zealand. Farmers in the rest of the world will replace that with 2.1 megatonnes of sheep carbon emissions. The climate tax will lead to a 133 per cent increase in those emissions. This is the prediction in the Government’s own models.

    The Prime Minister claims our farmers will “benefit from being world-leading”. That’s BS. Precious few consumers in London and Perth and even Auckland are wealthy enough to question the climate impact of their meat before buying it. Right now – with inflation soaring internationally – they’re more concerned about the price.

    The word is that Labour and the Prime Minister are shocked at the negative reaction to this announcement. It’s possible they were especially surprised Federated Farmers reacted so badly. President Andrew Hoggard described it as “cutting our throats”.

    The negative reaction is far from over. Huge chunks of the farming community are responding with everything from rage to despair.

    It could only get worse when the protests start. Groundswell has announced protests for Thursday in all the major centres.

    It may snowball when farming communities realise the impact this will have on those living around sheep and beef farms. Many of those farmers will simply switch to planting trees if their council allows it. People will be replaced by pine. Groundswell predicts, 2368 Kiwi farming families will walk off their land.

    Schools, shops and cafes will close. Meat plants won’t have work. It’s predicted one close every year from 2030 and 13,984 red meat sector jobs will be lost.

    It’s hard not to feel cynical about the timing of this announcement. It’s come four weeks before the big global climate change conference, COP27, kicks off in Egypt. Climate Minister James Shaw will be there. He’ll hardly want to repeat the experience of last year when he was given a Fossil Award for New Zealand’s disappointing efforts on climate change.

    This climate tax is about the only thing he can crow about this year.

    COP ends on 18 November. That’s the very day the Government’s six-week consultation period on the tax ends as well.

    Shaw will be coming home to an altogether different audience from the one in Egypt. And he’ll be forced to water this down. There’s an election next year.

    National has promised to repeal this tax and let the farmers decide what they do, which most likely means putting in a tax to get everyone off their backs but setting it so low it doesn’t shut down farms.

    Labour’s already been too reckless with the economy to be able to defend giving away nearly $3b a year. They’ve already shut down offshore oil and gas exploration, kept migrants out while the world’s employers – and ours – battle for workers and made enemies of boardrooms.

    They can’t drop this though. That would be too much of a backdown for the PM who declared climate change to be the nuclear-free moment of her generation. But they’ll have to water it down to something that looks a lot like what National is offering.

    Either that or they lose voters, wreck farming towns and make climate change worse.”

    • Thanks Saggy:— Mrs Bazza put it very well.

      Ardern, Robertson, Mahuta, did not come back from their travels bringing home the bacon, for the NZ farmers in removing all tariffs, quotas, free trade, to the UK, Europe, USA, China, India, South Korea, Japan, etc..
      Yet the farmers & many New Zealanders are now expected to follow another series of lies?

      That is NOT repealing the tax as it is still created at another level.!

      …. National has promised to repeal this tax and let the farmers decide what they do, which most likely means putting in a tax to get everyone off their backs but setting it so low it doesn’t shut down farms. …

      The nasty trick of using another set of coloured glasses. 🙁

      The inch that later takes up the mile.
      The backdoor, that will be leveraged & opened up far wider at a more opportune time.

      Labour has seen how GroundsWell got off the ground in its own right.
      Labour has seen how the Convoy, was supported through out New Zealand in many provincial towns.
      Labour has seen how the Anti-Mandate of Vaccines Protest, kept building, going from strength to strength in Wellington.

      The Labour Party has found ways, like the Censorship of Manifestos, putting through ‘Buy Back Programs’ Wellington Police riots, that became supported by many if not All Parliamentarians.

      A long transcript sourced from WEF, in how they are looking to control all in the “platforms” algorithmic-ally,

      ….. we’re becoming much more proactive. You know, we own the science and we think that the world should know it and the platforms themselves also do. ….
      https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2022/09/tackling-disinformation-agenda-dialogues/

      Noting how the Adern is pushing the message in the UN, rotting from the head, but this is being pushed down into New Zealand media, surreptitiously. Always ‘ratshitting’ a notch at a time, to hopefully shift public opinion that mile or 2.
      Always they back off to a prepared position, so as not not break the straps they have wrapped around many of the public, then start to cinch up tighter again.

    • Just to take one of the many points made by HDPA

      “This tax will remove 1.6 megatonnes of sheep carbon emissions in New Zealand. Farmers in the rest of the world will replace that with 2.1 megatonnes of sheep carbon emissions. The climate tax will lead to a 133 per cent increase in those emissions.
      This is the prediction in the Government’s own models. ”

      How could any sensible person think this is a rational thing to do? Try to solve a “problem’ with a solution that makes the problem worse and then expect those affected by the solution to accept it. They are clearly MAD !!

    • Actually, the more they push this crap the better. We have a year to pick holes in the policy and this should turn a few soft voters off them. A few major demonstrations by the farmers will add clarity to the issue. Some are predicting a Wall Street crash of up to 30%. That will focus the lenses of a few……

      • Yep ROL, Shaw and the internationally travelling Bag of Teeth need to keep this up because they have painted themselves into a corner and can’t use any paint stripper to get themselves out of it.

        So bring on the demonstrations nationwide and let them be loud and long.

        Then the dopey people who still think Cindy and the Greens are great for this country may start to realise that she ain’t with the massive opposition that is coming.

  5. Paula Bennett has a go too. Wonder if Jaxx is getting the message that they’ve really fucked this one up. I mean more than one of their usual fuck-ups. Can’t wait to see them walk this back.

    Paula Bennett: Government’s agricultural emissions tax will up dairy, meat prices

    OPINION

    “At a time when New Zealanders are struggling more than I have ever seen, this Government has decided it is a good time to put in policy that will increase food prices. The extra charges they are proposing to put on to farmers to supposedly mitigate methane emissions (animal burps) will mean one thing for sure. Prices of meat and dairy will go up.

    They explain with enthusiasm that this will mean that our high-quality produce will be in more demand around the world and we can get premium prices. Great for those who can afford it but there are so many fish hooks it is hard to know where to start.

    Our premium price for quality meat and dairy will go up, but other countries that are not as efficient or don’t care as much about the environment are likely to increase production and fill the gap. So the planet misses out as worldwide emissions won’t decrease, just NZ might look better.

    Our farmers are the best in the world. The most emission efficient. They produce the best quality product and work tirelessly to fence off waterways and plant trees. They need to be supported as the backbone of our economy and rural communities. Not have increased costs for no real advantage to decreasing the effects of climate change.

    It is similar to when they shut down coal production. Cool idea – coal is not the best energy for the planet. Except we still need it so we import it from other countries. Which is produced less efficiently and has to be transported here. Bad for the planet.

    I heard this week via Kerre Woodham’s Newstalk show that our very own department of conservation helicopters in coal to heat their remote huts. They can’t chop up the dead trees off the ground and burn them because of some internal policy. It makes no logical sense at all.

    It’s like everything we hear at the moment. It is all spin to make us feel better but the realities are far from the truth. For all the smoke and mirrors there are some that will feel the effects more than others.

    It is utter hypocrisy for the Government to purport to care more for those who are struggling, yet have no thought for the fact that their own policies will increase food prices. And all so the Prime Minister can stand on an international stage and say we are the first in the world.

    At this time of increased pressure, there is no room for good intentions and grandstanding. It is those who are struggling to fill their pantry each week who will suffer the most. We all want to be doing our bit to leave the planet better than we found it for our kids and grandkids. But for them to thrive they must be fed and for too many this policy will put meat and dairy off the weekly menu if it isn’t already.”

    Which electorates tossed their Nat toss pots and replaced them with even worse, the communists from Labour and the Greens.

    Well there is a list of them both North and South.

    Hopefully they will remember what acres of pines on their boundary really are like.
    Balckberry, wid pigs that kill their livestock and root up their lawns, deer that eat their gardens out , posumms the spread disease and eat their apples, stoats and weazels that kill their chooks, wild dogs that attack anything including people.
    What a future in the farming world.
    BUT, no farts from cows of course and no milk tankers.

    • Well said Viking

      Years ago about 2008-9 I tallied up livestock numbers, from NZ agricultural statistics from 1990 to approx 2007.
      This was when the Kyoto Proposal 1990 of emission control was taken over by National & pushed by Nick Smith.

      In particular noting the fall in sheep numbers, the drop in beef cow numbers which seem to be approximately close as the increase of dairy cow numbers.
      Though much smaller in numbers, the substantial drop in goats & horses on farms.
      Then using the approved ratio of 5 stock units of 5 sheep to 1 dairy cow for the consumption of grass.
      That left a massive drop off in animal livestock farming, so that would have reduced whatever agricultural emissions.

      It was also a good counter how NZ’s dairy farm growth, was not as dire as claimed at that time.

      I attended a few of those farmer meetings where Nick Smith pushed that. Nick Smith tried to cover, blur those facts, but it did not go down well, as facts are facts. drawing attention to that there is no basis at that time, as is now!

      Strangely while looking through those figures I also found that over 2 million hectares had been lost to agricultural farming.
      Ok some reverted?, some forestry?, lifestyle blocks?, new suburbs?. National Parks, Reserves, Esplanades, Significant Natural Areas? : Maori exemptions? Certainly something is increasing in these areas?
      Which would would be worse for increasing emissions?

      At the moment, and probably lost, I can not find my workings, and links, and the notes that I made, but those numbers speak very clearly of the nonsense that government & bureaucracy pushes to achieve collective agenda.
      What amazes me how this is never bought up.
      Federated Farmers & Groundswell should be all over this, as it is a simple compilation of facts.
      That easily could be made very graphic in graphs & tables!
      If anything also prove the efficiency of kiwi farmers as well.

        Used to get MPI ( MAF ) figures .
        Fom memory 1984 there were 72 million sheep ,Today less than <25 million ..
        Cattle not much change.
        There are the farm emissions cuts without doing anything!
        Trouble is the government loses it opportunity to boot farmers!

  7. Offenders attempting to escape electronic bail on the rise

    While the recent spate of ram-raids has kept officers working overtime, an increasing number of offenders on electronic bail are cutting off their ankle bracelets and doing a runner.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/10/15/offenders-attempting-to-escape-electronic-bail-on-the-rise/

    Since 2017 the number of people electronically monitored by Corrections has more than doubled, but the number of those attempting to abscond has tripled.

    Last year police handled two escape attempts per day.

    Police Commissioner Andrew Coster says it’s manageable.

    But National Party police spokesperson Mark Mitchell says it’s far too easy for many to simply walk out the door and continue committing crimes.

    • “The National Party fails to understand that it is disingenuous to criticise the Government’s proposal when National’s own plan would cause equal hardship to rural communities. It is hypocrisy to attack the Government on a proposal National would largely replicate,” Matt says.

      And NudeNut wonders why most of Matt’s support will be coming from the rural sector.

    • Thanks Ross12 & hear hear DemocracyNZ Matt King.

      The ‘nasty’ party only want the farmers to formulate a tax on themselves at a lower level.
      Legislation for that tax would go through on that basis.
      A real nasty Trojan horse, then can be “ratshitted” upwards to decimate farmers.

      current reduction targets cannot be achieved without farmers dramatically reducing stock numbers and cutting food production

      A quick check and comparison of Agricultural Statistics from 1990 on Live Stock numbers to present day will show just how much of drop in numbers has occurred over the decades, as mentioned above.
      https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-1273/#comment-276749

      So how can emissions as “dramatically” claimed be rising from the farms?
      If anything it proves that any so called emissions are even more drastically dropped per Kilogram of meat & wool, showing that many farmers improved their efficiency.

      It simply does not stack up in truth.
      Just as the increased free trade for New Zealand in the World by reducing to Zero quotas, Zero tariffs, that are claimed as success, by Ardern, Mahuta & Robertson but in reality New Zealand farmers are forced to continue to suffer major restraints & costs from trading partners!

      When is New Zealand going to counter claim against Australia, Europe, the UK, USA & the rest, for their increasing emissions?
      Firing up old coal fire power stations, building new coal power. etc..
      Show us the policy, the speeches that speak against the many trading partners & their increased emissions!

        For anyone who doubts what is going on it is there for all to see right now.

  10. A Californian surfer visiting Australia was having a good time catching the breakers at resorts along the Gold Coast, but wanted a special experience. He wanted to surf a beach where nobody, or almost nobody, goes.

    So he gets in the car, drives north. At the first remote beach he hits, he has his board in hand as he’s walking toward the water, when one of the locals warns him: “you don’t want to be surfing here, mate: there’s too many sharks”.

    So he heeds the warning, and drives to one remote beach after another – and it’s always the same warning: there’s too many sharks.

    Finally, he finds a perfect beach. It’s so perfect, film editors would cut it out because the audience would never believe it’s real. He asks the first person he meets if there are any sharks here, and was told, no.

    Two more locals give him the same answer: no sharks here. So he splashes into the water and paddles out toward the breakers, when the alarm goes off in his head. This is a perfect beach, the water temperature’s perfect, the breakers are to die for… and not only are there no surfers, nobody is in the water. Something’s got to be wrong.

    So he turns his head and cries out to a sunbather catching a tan: “Hey, why aren’t there any sharks at this beach?”

    And the guy answers: “because they’re too bloody afraid of the crocodiles, mate!”

    Covid 19 Omicron outbreak: Another wave risks hundreds more deaths this year – Michael Baker

    New Zealand’s third Omicron wave may result in hundreds more deaths from the virus before the year is out, a top epidemiologist warns.

    About 2000 Kiwis have died from the virus since Omicron arrived in the country last summer – a figure more than six times last year’s road toll – and modellers tracking daily case numbers say it now appears likely another surge has begun.

    • And still no objective stats that show what happened to flu deaths in NZ past 2018.

      https://figure.nz/chart/i01a0sx5LV45oZuV-qT3D6RQYXb90oK5L

      figure.nz was also given high praise by Ardern.

      Release 19 April 2016
      Statistics and Small Business Minister Craig Foss is welcoming a new online data tool that will help businesses grow and thrive by providing easily accessible and understandable data.

      Officially launched today, Business Figures is the result of an innovative public-private partnership between Figure.NZ, ASB Bank and Statistics NZ.

      The original founder has left, the management changed, some govt funding and support and even, and a new maori.figure.nz website.

      But basic objective stats still missing. Most noticeably is a chart that showed all deaths by cause. All respiratory diseases including flu etc used to be approx 3000 per year, but that graph has gone and those figures not easy to find. Cannot find old graph on wayback machine either. Graph appears to have just vaporised,

      Since the start of 2020 the cumulative figure would be north of 8000.
      Without the graphs of deaths by cause, anything anyone says as a stand alone figure is pure puffery.

      So we don’t know how the 2000 “Omicron deaths” (that most other countries compared to a mild flu) compare side by side with the 3000 deaths per year that normally die from all respiratory disease .

      Without objective stats, listed by year and by month, and by cause of death, is it all sideshow snake oil sales talk. Smoke and mirrors.

      Baker should be ashamed of himself.

      In connection with the jab, this might be of interest to both yourself and others on the forum.

      I live in a small Central Waikato town and went to the local supermarket this morning, noting when driving- in to it’s carpark that there was a small booth off to one side with a sign attached indicating that whatever it was ‘selling / providing was aimed at was ‘Protecting all of Aotearoa’, Three people were in residence – evidently waiting for ‘customers.

      I didn’t think anything of it, and because summer is coming, assumed that it was some sort of anti-skin cancer display; the sort that provides free suntan lotion and advice about sun screen.

      I could not have been more wrong.

      When departing the scene a while later, the purpose of the ‘booth was revealed by another sign placed slightly-behind the booth and in a manner to make it not immediately visible.. It read;

      ‘Covid-19 Vaccination Station’!!

      It would seem that, although no longer the subject of discussion, the ‘jab’ is still being dispensed and that dl’s anti-covid jab-machine is still operating.

      Perhaps unusually, I DIDN’T stop to partake in the ‘free’ service, but bring the ‘discovery’ to the membership’s attention as apparently the WEF jab-targets still have to be met, and the enemy still walks amongst us.

      Be careful out there folks, the war against the ‘purebloods’ continues.

  14. It’s amazing. The whinge about the low turnout of voters in last weekend’s Local Government elections is still wasting newspaper. In Mangere & Otahuhu turnout was 21%. In Otara just 20% could summon the energy to fill out & post their papers.

    But it’s not their fault.

    The Star times dragged out some semi educated pillocks for comment:

    ……”Sadly, as life & assignments got in the way, she was one of the many students who didn’t get another chance to post their ballots”…….

    ……”It’s concerning to see local government becoming the domain of people with the luxury of time & wealth”…….

    …….”There’s, of course, a lot of socio-economic reasons why people don’t vote because they’re really busy & don’t have the mental space to think about this”…….

  16. According to man hating woke imbeciles- you’re a pedo if you have consensual sex with a 17 year old gold digger.

    The average age of consent, in most of the world, is around 13. The god addled USA says you are a pedo if they are under 18. Then applies that to the entire world. The same USA with massive -18 teen pregnancy.

  17. Regarding the Pfizer inoculation not preventing transmission, here is something that piqued my suspicious mind….
    If you go to the Medsafe site on Covid-19 Questions and Answers (https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/COVID-19/q-and-a-vaccine-approval.asp) you will find the following useful information:

    How long will the vaccines work?
    At this stage, we do not know how long a vaccine might work for. The efficacy of Comirnaty after 6 months of follow up, after dose 2 was 91% overall (see table 4 in the data sheet).

    Will the vaccines still work if COVID-19 mutates?
    Scientists and regulators will be monitoring whether mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 virus are likely to alter the effectiveness of any vaccines.

    Do mRNA vaccines alter DNA?
    No, mRNA vaccines contain RNA, which does not alter DNA. More information about how mRNA vaccines work

    You will note that this information was published 27 November 2020 and revised 20 April 2021.

    If you do a Way Back Machine search for the same Medsafe site, on 30 June 2021, you will get the same information plus an extra useful question and answer relating to whether the inoculation would prevent or reduce transmission: (https://web.archive.org/web/20210630014403/https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/covid-19/q-and-a.asp) As at today, this still has the same publishing and revision dates.

    How long will the vaccines work?
    At this stage, we do not know how long a vaccine might work for.

    Does the vaccine prevent or reduce transmission of COVID-19?
    At this stage, we do not know if vaccination prevents or reduces transmission of COVID-19.

    Will the vaccines still work if COVID-19 mutates?
    Scientists and regulators will be monitoring whether mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 virus are likely to alter the effectiveness of any vaccines.

    Do mRNA vaccines alter DNA?
    No, mRNA vaccines contain RNA, which does not alter DNA. More information about how mRNA vaccines work

    On 30 June 2021, when we were allowed to be informed that there was no information concerning the Pfizer shot preventing transmission, Dear Leader had assured us that talk of mandates were conspiracy theories. We now know from from both the MOH and the mouth of Pfizer that transmission after inoculation was never studied or tested and from empirical evidence that the vaxed still transmit the Cov, so why has this factual statement been removed by Medsafe?

    • A part of the covering up, can we get it challenged & exposed?

      ….. NZDSOS said, “it is clear on glancing through the submissions, New Zealanders see this amendment as a cover-up attempt, either by accident or design”. …

      …. “The reactions from some of the [Select] committee were mixed, to say the least, but they know now that they are under scrutiny for any wrong-doing “, …..

      …. “In a phase 4 clinical trial every death of a person who received the medication would typically be investigated and reported on,” said the spokesperson.
      This is clearly not happening and is likely to happen even less if a coronial associate can sign off a death as ‘unascertained natural causes”.

      https://www.thedailyexaminer.co.nz/proposed-amendments-to-coroners-bill-is-an-attempt-to-cover-up-sudden-deaths/

      It gives a quick showing of the phase 3 to now the phase 4 of the Pfizer trials.

        • I mentioned that I had put in an OIA request to Coronial Services for a monthly break down of the number of deaths reported to the Coroner and number of post mortems performed over the past 7 years

          I was quite amazed that the yearly numbers were pretty consistent, sitting around two thousand pa. The figures they gave me were up to July this year….so comparing January to July 2019 with January to July 2021 and 2022, 2019 had more post mortems carried out for that period. We have had greater excess mortality already this year but fewer post mortems have been carried out to establish the cause of those deaths. The system is clearly rigged, but then you knew that already.

    • “Here’s a new Pfizer condom. It is 100 effective and safe?”
      -You should wear them at all times to stop everyone else getting pregnant or catching VD.
      -If you don’t wear a condom little 16 year Johnny in Ekaterina will get his younger sister pregnant.
      -And the nuns in the nunnery will catch VD.”

      “Will it stop me getting my girlfriend pregnant?”
      “We never tested that.”

      “Will it stop me getting VD on the next rugby trip?”
      “We never tested that.”

      “Will it stop me getting the nanny pregnant?”
      “We never tested that.”

      “Well what the fuck is it useful for?”
      “Well, you’re a teacher. You could use it to put on a carrot to teach the school children how to put one on. And you get a nice certificate that will allow you to have coffee with your friends.”

      “Are there any positives about this new condom?”
      “It’s created 18 new billionaires. And it will stop global warming.”

      The question needs to be asked.
      “Why with all the money ‘wisely’ & “kindly” expended by WhakaWhatits, and the road toll still increases”?
      Seems to be negligence, dereliction of duty, & irresponsibility, with malfeasance, to send money to adjoining friends in ad-agencies, and pushers of greenery per cycle ways etc.. etc..

      • Even if death is by “Car smash” sadly now, despite being still in a phase 3 or 4 experimental vaxx, being vaxxed & the vax dates are not recorded on the death certificate.
        Now sliding into more cover ups of ” non ascertained natural causes”.

        In years to come, some one could analyse it and maybe see a pattern.
        After all in these experimental phases there is supposed to be monitoring.
        Another sly way of getting rid of the pointers to some dangers.
        Like getting rid of the placebo group in the trials, so no ongoing true comparison could be made.
        – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -………
        I now think of putting a clause in my will, before any dispensation of what ever or legacy, so will be paid for first, that is a full autopsy and report be made public-ally available on my spent body.

        Sure I am unvaxxed, but just to be part of the Control Group.
        Will some of the vaxxed do like wise?

  18. The New Zealand Superannuation Fund, which plans to invest $5 billion in a huge offshore wind farm in the South Taranaki Bight, has also shown interest in Emrod’s technology. But, according to fund spokesman Conor Roberts, it is in the “very early investigation stage”.

    A Kiwi start-up whose wireless power-transmitting technology is attracting global interest has visions of harnessing solar energy from space. By Richard Woodd.

    Imagine invisible beams of electricity powering ferries and electric aircraft, reaching into isolated areas, distributing power across the South Pacific, and connecting offshore wind farms to the grid.

    Then imagine, if you can, that power coming from thousands of kilometres away in outer space, transmitted to Earth from orbiting power stations fitted with multitudes of solar panels. And etched into the critical transmission componentry are the words “Made in Aotearoa New Zealand”.

      • Powerco have actually got their shit together over the past 8 to 10 years when they started doing a bit of maintenance & renewal to their dilapidated network. Prior to that anything stronger than a light breeze had power lines wrapping themselves in knots.

        It’s interesting to contrast the uptake of technology between Powerco & Telecom. If a power outage occurs they send a man out with a ute to gaze upwards at the wires until he finds the fault then they fix it. Telecom can remotely detect within half a metre where the fault lies. They don’t actually do anything to fix it but they know where it is!

      • Good to hear nasska,

        Recall the days when lightning & thunder and dear mother was heating up food, & drinks to feed us, before the power cut out.

        Now a days, those line fuses in designated areas can auto plug in, with those 3 second delays before you power comes back on, or goes out again for another 3 seconds, all the while narrowing down where the fault may lie,

        How ever it can kick out your power line fuses, unknown to you, when some time later, your concern mounts at the possible loss of your full deep freeze, and realizing all your neighbours have had power on for most of the day.

        The modernization to continuous “Smart Metering” has been underway in New Zealand for a few years.

        Soon it will only needs a computer tick and probably gets an automatically feed off your bank account as you draw off the electricity.

        Another tick would be required to only allow a certain level of draw off to allow limited Net Carbon Zero, considering the burning of a million tonnes plus of Indonesian coal to achieve Net Carbon Zero.

        Then the real hurdle to achieve the official government approval tick;— that is your approved social credit rating.
        Then do not count on your generator, as fuel will be for only approved people, in the collective zone of Carbon Zero.
        Back to the trusty wet back & stove top on the wood burner. 🙂

        • I feel that we may live to regret the choices we made when we retired into town. Currently we have ‘on demand’ LPG fired hot water, with radiators spread through the house & a couple of heat pumps.

          On the farm we had a big log fire plus a massive range in the kitchen that had been adapted to run on diesel. It had two wetbacks, one each for hot water & central heating & the oven produced some of the best tucker I’ve eaten. My better half renovated the kitchen twice in the 26 years we owned the property but she couldn’t bring herself to throw the range on the scrapheap.

          Modernise they said. Cheap & clean gas & electricity they said. If the Mad Queen gets her way we’ll end up warming ourselves with the heat of a melting ice cube!

            • There are not a lot of them left Kea. They date back to a bygone era when station houses had huge kitchens which were needed to feed seasonal workers. They were designed to run on coal then adapted for wood & a few were swapped onto diesel or a kero/diesel mix after WW2. They ran 24/7 most of the year.

              • This is something people forget when moaning about our uninsulated old damp houses.

                Back in the day women would be at home keeping the range and fires burning. Fuel was cheap and the draughty houses ensured good ventilation. They used to drill holes in the framing for air circulation.

                But once you remove the heat supply they are damp dark freezing shit boxes.

                  2 nuclear power stations in Auckland. It’s in a geographically stable area. It’s by water. It’s near the highest consumer. It’s right next to the biggest group of climate alarmists who hate fossil fuels. A win for everyone.

                  The West Coast will get two coal powered plants. Near the source of coal. Existing rail infrastructure. In need of an economic boost.

                  There will also be gas and oil exploration, including Māori land and national parks. Māori can opt out but won’t get a cent more from govt and all treaty settlements will be stayed. If they opt in they get a fair share of the profits.

                • Agree entirely. It’s amazing the heat reservoir carpets, drapes & furniture provide. But the biggest heat loss yet useful ventilation lay in the design of the old houses. Today’s framing consists of a top plate, bottom plate, studs & dwangs. Effectively once clad & gibbed each section traps its own air……& moisture.

                  Contrast this to pre WW2 construction. The house was constructed on an outer ring of piles with a top & bottom plate & studs then clad & sarked inside. No dwangs & air could & did pass up between the inner & outer walls. Acted as great chimney effect if the house caught on fire.

                  Floors were boards…… no tongue & groove. I can recall watching the carpet rise & fall in the wind gusts in one house we resided in as a kid. Ditto with the wallpaper glued to scrim.

                  Different standards……different eras. Houses are different but not quite as free from defects as sociologists would have us believe.

  19. Drop the mandates!

    The Defence Minister has admitted that even after a budget boost, Defence Force personnel aren’t paid enough.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/10/16/military-members-arent-paid-enough-defence-minister-says/

    Minister Peeni Henare told Q+A that attrition rates in the military are among the worst the NZDF has ever seen in peacetime.

    Part of the reason for that is a “smoking hot labour market”, and skills shortages in the sorts of trades trained by the military.

  21. While fishing in French Pass, boats turn up trying for Kingfish. Every single one of them use these stupid slider jigs and frantically pump the rod up and down while furiously cranking the reel. This is the most fucked up fishing method I’ve ever seen. They are clearly pedo-fags and should all be on the sex offender register.

    I use lures, but for straight people. Recent I had a pack of kingis at my feet chasing the big kahawai I was catching. The kahawai were racing towards me to escape, with much splashing and action as they dodged the kingis . A kingi grabbed my lure just as I went to lift it out of the water. Non stop action at my feet on the rocks.

    Meanwhile boat loads of these muppets frantically pumped their pedo-fag rods for nothing. Not one of them thought to catch one of the zillion kahawai and use it for a live bait.

    They Kea Party will ban these lures and sink their boats.

    Australia opens up recruiting from New Zealand.

    …. .15 October 2022…. “The McGowan Government securing the first of such an agreement gives our State a strong head start to attract the best possible police candidates from the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand.
    .
    “The Western Australian Police Force has already recruited more than 1,000 new officers over the past two years. We have more than 480 additional officers on the beat right now, compared with when we took office.
    There have never been more police on our streets, and the McGowan Government is committed to continuing our record police recruitment drive and making WA safer for our community. ….
    .
    ……. want skilled, experienced constables to work on the frontline to help us cover the biggest policing jurisdiction in the world. ….
    .
    …. “If you have at least three years’ experience in your Police Force and you are under 55 ……

    https://www.mediastatements.wa.gov.au/Pages/McGowan/2022/10/WA-Government-and-Police-Force-launch-international-recruitment-campaign-.aspx#:~:text=The%20Western%20Australian%20Police%20Force,Kingdom%2C%20Ireland%20and%20New%20Zealand.

    Could be very tempting.
    With that many police in Western Australia, one would think that all the leave would be available when you want it.
    That the rosters should be easy.

    It almost sounds like a Ukrainian & Russian mobilization for some big campaign coming up.

    The McMartin trials.
    Started when a woman accused a child’s teacher of sodomizing her son after finding blood in his nappy.
    Extended to a female teacher that drilled a child under the arms and taken her son to meet a “goat man”
    Children said they were forced to participate in satanic rituals and a slew of other crazy claims.
    The trial lasted 7 years and no one was convicted.
    There is a film about it and heaps of info online.

  24. Auckland Council-controlled: Eke Panuku’s middle managers earn an average of $143,000 a year

    Auckland Council-controlled organisation Eke Panuku has 50 middle managers earning an average of $143,000 a year.

    That average excludes the company’s nine top managers from its Executive Leadership Team who earn more than $200,000 each, according to information provided to Auckland Ratepayers’ Alliance.

    “It is absurd that when you have an organisation of around 200 staff, you have 50 managers as well as nine members of an Executive Leadership Team, that does seem excessive.”

    Eke Panuku has a total of 203 employees and 15 temporary staff.
