    • Good to know there is still a few pockets of sanity fighting the dangerous ‘hate speech’ laws in this crazy virtue signalling world.

      Happy Easter everyone. Wherever you are, however you spend your Easter break enjoy it.
      Another beautiful morning but the Waikato is waiting for the much needed rain later this afternoon. Fingers crossed for a couple of days.

      • Yes it was. was over Te Awamutu and Cambridge. Cambridge Golf course looks like a desert.
        Back home dry but now the rain has arrived. Soil here in Tauranga is very dry. Birds are eating fejoas on the trees to get moisture.

      • Would I be able to get a copy and post it on here ? If they are going to put blogs under the watchful eyes of the press council or whatever busy body quango, then we should be able to access this kind of stuff. All in the name of research of course…..

        • I posted some quotes, sort of what I recall, 🙂 on KB before and after moderation to counter some commentator claims, though gave no attribution to author.
          No one asked for a link, but it seemed to be accepted that it was the source. 🙂

          Information, knowledge is power.
          Funny how this government will not allowed that to be shared, but as a principle, wants to share your money and resources with every one.

    • I found this quote interesting since it’s almost word for word a quote from the Gulag Archipelago”

      Responding to the allegations, Gonzalez-Montero said: “No complaints of bullying have been received by the Parliamentary Service since I took up my new role in February. There is therefore no basis upon which to claim that I have brought a culture of bullying and harassment to the Service.

  2. Good morning and Happy Easter to all :).

    I read some of that manifesto doc before they tried to bury it, as well as watching the killer’s video of the first mosque. As soon as the cops said “don’t watch it” i started searching for it. Some Turkish TV station was still showing it hours after the tragedy. Couldn’t understand a word they were saying lol.

    It was eerily just like Call of Duty on PS4, but these were real people. I guess in solitary they shove a tray of food through a slot of some description, and I’ve got the perfect idea of punishment. Instead of food, how about a half dozen rattlesnakes to keep him company? Surpirse! LIveStream THAT! Sky TV could sell the viewing rights, with all proceeds going to the victims.

  3. I went for a pleasant evening walk around the neighborhood with my daughter last night. Pleasant, that is, until we got to the local park, normally a peaceful sanctuary of tall trees and green grass, but last night despoiled by the presence of three vanloads of freedom bludgers ensconsed in the carpark. They were young, European and entitled. They were dishevelled, dirty-looking and untidy. The three beat-up Toyota Estima-type vans were filthy and covered in slogans. Around them were spread the detritus of the parasitic life. Camping stools and baggage, trash and cooking equipment, strewn about several parking spaces while the vans were rummaged for the evening’s necessities. The occupants were playing music and talking loudly and laughing, while overstuffing the nearby public bins with their voluminous rubbish. God only knows where they were going to the toilet – the undergrowth at the back of the park would be my guess. These juvenile cretins gave not a damn about all the people living in the houses across the street from the park, nor my fellow park users. They made a pretty park look like a gypsy encampment and were a disgrace to their parents and their countries. I might have said something but it would have had no effect, and I had my youngest daughter to consider. I’ve been feeling angry and impotent ever since though.

    • According to the authorities they are not bludgers but merely “budget conscious tourists”.
      The official line is that even though they spend a lower amount on a daily basis than regular tourists they stay longer so their total spend is higher.
      Yeah well bullshit I say to that.
      If you actually took into account the total cost of their stay i.e the value of all the free ratepayer facilities they use the profit would be negilible.
      In fact alot of these facilities at certain spots in summer become exclusively theirs as the sheer numbers of them make usage by anyone else impossible.
      The only people profiting out of these buzzards is petrol companies and Pak n Save who sell them Budget Baked Beans and Two Minute Noodles but even that is debatable as shoplifting is common also.
      I ‘m with you John,I don’t think the country is better off for this kind of tourist at all.

        When the CoL’s priority are tertiary students and global virtue signalling by spending $200m+ on buying guns off mostly reliable non-crimimal citizens, then someone has to suffer. Easier to sideline the vulnerable than squeaky wheels.

        • He is a very broken 2 and a bit year old, he has laryngomalacia, atypical, aspirates into his lungs, even saliva, constant infections, good comprehension but limited verbal, still on pouch baby food and has a mickey button (stomach feeder). his insides just seem to be just that little bit off.
          What seems to make it harder is that externally he looks fine, bonny even, his mother would get more help if she was neglectful, Dr Google has meant that she was able to renew his nasal tubes when he was fed that way, as he vomits a lot, lots of conflicting clinical advice from siloed hospital departments. Even if he had been diagnosed with autism, there is no support.

          • Truly awful. It really pisses me off all those virtue signalling idiots who have no idea what real problems the vulnerable have but bitch and moan about how difficult their lives are when fully able. Disabled kids break my heart. I admit I have no idea what I’m talking about but I guess the only thing you can do is experiment with food that doesn’t upset him so much? Guessing that is hard to do with a stomach feeder? Probably too young as yet but perhaps a bit later a pet to help with interaction as that has worked for some? Annoyingly the CoL seems to have plenty of taxpayer funds for what they deem important when kids like your grandson are sidelined.

            • they suffer from food versions too as they have not had experience with textures and tastes, the fortified milk that he gets is vanilla , I say ffs why not chocolate but it tastes like shit I am sure when it comes back up what ever flavour and he doesn’t taste it going down, and kids that do get to taste it would prefer the chocolate. Dear wee thing looks like me at the same age.

    • Interesting waikatogirl that one headline they heralded the Minister coming to their aid. It is however not to confuse Disability funding with Aged Care . Both are separately growing to be much bigger burdens on the taxpayer because of accelerated wage costs as a result of COL policy. IMHO these two issues cold be as much a challenge as Mental Health Care in the absence of realistic decisions and sound policies. Lets wait for the Great Wellness Budget to see some real feelz.

    • Funny isn’t it that up until about 20 years ago these sorts of stories were hardly ever seen.
      Now they are just so common they are hardly news worthy anymore.
      I am sure there will be more soul searching from the unions and government ministers about ruthless employers and and how nasty they are and how “we need to do better as a nation” while completely ignoring the fact that virtually every case now involves immigrants ripping off other immigrants.
      But hey that’s racist to say that so lets just do the old collective guilt thing and pull everyone in.
      Suck up the diversity folks as according to the experts it’s good for us.

  5. A man applying for a job at a Tauranga citrus orchard seemed to be far too qualified for the job.

    The foreman frowned and said, “I have to ask you this; have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?”

    He replied: “I’ve been divorced three times, bought a Great Wall & I voted for Jacinda Ardern.”

  6. Sources tell me that the current CoL clowns have been inundated with complaints about their failure to implement any of the election planks.

    Those sources also tell me that the harridan and her cohorts are going to do something about these complaints as a matter of urgency.

    They have just announced a law banning complaints.

    • This bit has to be quite obnoxious

      The details of the increasingly inept burglary spree of Maiora Pop Wirihana, 40, were revealed when he was sentenced to three years in jail when he appeared in the Hamilton District Court on Tuesday.

      He had earlier pleaded guilty to five charges of burglary, one of possession of methamphetamine, one of possession of utensils for consuming methamphetamine, and one of using a document – namely a credit card – for pecuniary advantage

      Three years for that? What a joke of a “justice” system we have.

  7. Jacinda’s media advisers are out in force this Easter Weekend regurgitating old fluffy stories to keep the warm fuzzies flowing. Quite spoilt my Sunday to read about the re-reporting of the story about the play date with Pink’s kids after the concert 6 month ago. Then front and centre on the Herald, another old story from an Easter 2014 social media post about the cancelled flight and Jacinda sharing her rental car driving strangers.
    And no doubt she will be fawning over Prince William this week.
    With all these fluffy stories, the PM can hoodwink us into forgetting that they screwed up so badly and demonstrated such incredible naivety in the way they handled CGT

      The attacks at the Shangri La hotel and the Batticalao Church appear to be the handiwork of a suicide bomber. The initial impressions also indicate that RDX [high explosive] could have been used in the attack and hence the impact was so high.

      Over 160 people have been killed in the blasts that took place in Sri Lanka today. Reports suggest that the suicide bombers have been identified as Zahran Hashim and Abu Mohammad. …..

      …. the attack comes 10 days after a warning was issued about Churches being attacked in the country.

      A message received by the police on April 11 stated that 11 Churches would be attacked. …..

      “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo,” said the alert.

      The truth of what inspires peace is when they are “us” becomes when we are “them” so that peace can be found. A damm tragedy all the way around, entrapping peoples.

      The koran, hadith, sunnah, need to be read, discussed, debated, and understood, by all before things can even begin to change.
      Then the flaws, contradictions, beguiling, blood thirsty violence and justice system, of an ideology can be fully exposed.

  8. The PG fund has contributed taxpayer funding to the planting of manuka plants for Ngati Hine, a Northland Maori Iwi to grow Manuka, but say their Manuka Honey has dropped from $80/kg to $12/kg after the govt changed the criteria for export quality Manuka Honey. The iwi are currently stockpiling their Manuka honey in the hope the price will rebound. Shane Jones says Ngati Hine should not exaggerate the seriousness of the issue.

    • Manuka honey shouldn’t be affected, it is the bottom tier honeys that have dropped down the food chain as they can no longer be sold as Manuka honey so there is a glut, and the arse has dropped out of the market. i got Rewa rewa honey from the hives on my place that many going by colour would have been sold as Manuka honey previously.

    • I asked Maggy about the issue of markers for manuka honey but she wasn’t able to isolate the problem with the Northland version. ie environment or genetics.

      But, from memory, they may be rewarded for playing the long game. I can recall a mate in the Wairarapa remarking that the markers improve with storage. After a couple of years they may be able to market the product as the real McCoy.

        • Honey is not a game I’ve ever been in myself but it’s been the saviour of a few people I know, most of whom have uneconomic beef & sheep blocks out near the Wairarapa coast. It’s what one of those blokes told me last year that I was quoting when I mentioned that the markers improve with age & honey keeps for a long time.

          I sympathise with northern Maori who are trying to actually do something with the vast areas of poor unproductive land that they own. The golden rule for forestry says that if the logs have to be carted more than 250km you’ll make a loss & Kaitaia is 180km from Marsden Point.

          Manuka honey was to be their saviour but the new marker standards are sinking their hopes & dreams.

          With admittedly no scientific data to base my opinions on I still reckon that the genetics of the manuka found in Northland are at fault. On the Karikari Peninsula, for instance, manuka flowers are pink & appear on the plant a full three months before the Wairarapa equivalent. With such variation the make up of the honey could easily be different.

          The answer may be as simple as planting better cultivars of Leptospermum scoparium. If the myrtle rust takes hold that will be the only way to rescue the industry regardless.

          • it is ironic that so much Manuka was cleared off marginal and, the bees have no choice with the Tee Tree either when helicoptered in, their flight is only approx. 3 kms so they do not necessarily choose Manuka either, it is that or starve.

      • Reading between the lines….
        I would say that any test for Honey identity that requires set levels of 6 marker chemicals as well as a DNA profile is a rort for testing laboratories.

        There is concern that some of the marker chemicals are not stable over time… so if you store your honey for a year, you may lose one of the markers.

        MPI are now admitting that they made a pretty arbitrary decision on their definition of Manuka Honey.
        “We’re currently collecting more samples from Northland so we can see if there is a variation here in mānuka honey that’s different from other parts of the country. We’re looking at a range of other studies about the stability of the (chemical ) markers, so that we can monitor the performance of the definition.

Perhaps the SPCA would like to fight for the humble honey bee that provides its free services, the bees basically starve when transported to fertilise Kiwifruit as they do not like it over much, they are modern ay slaves and then we introduce varroa. I am very fond of bees.
