  1. I must admit Melahi, I worry a lot about the echo-chamber effect. It delivers all the confirmation-bias one could ever hope for. However, the booing of the part-time PM on Saturday seemed to indicate that the great awakening might be happening. The problem is that if the CoL is removed from office, the ones taking over the reins will be indistinguishable from them.

    As always the cancer that allows this contemptible situation to continue is MMP, it continues to give the extremists and self-serving the most power. I struggle to envisage an electoral system that could deliver worse outcomes than our current one. Still it looks like democracy the world over is failing under the weight of the deep pockets of the super-corrupt.

    I despair.

      • True
        As a keen amateur historian, the average young person today has no idea about World War 2 or the Korean war.
        Let alone WW1 which re-drew the borders of Europe and the middle east.
        Young people need to be taught our western heritage and be proud of it.

        • Yes, the wokester inoculation/indoctrination imposed by and lauded by Media, educators and politicians has softened many of them to powder puff consistency.

          The actual truth to them, has no place in their bullshit, nambi pambi, save me , boo hoo, tragic neophyte belief system.

          And, these blow soft individuals are supposed to respect and care for us, when we no longer can. Good bloody luck with that!

          The societal inversion we are witnessing is apparently,”our fault”, like every other problem, difficulty or challenge they would otherwise naturally face.

          New World Order used to mean a supermarket shopping list.FFS

  2. Who would trust the Government with the integrity to cost all policy promises fairly leading up to a Election. I am pleased Simon Simon Bridge’s said National won’t let this bill pass as it needs all Parties support to pass.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12260316
    Would any MP in National trust Grant Robertson to do the right thing after his display over the budget leak and with Winston Peter’s looking for a life line to stay in Parliament at the next Election he will side with the devil to remain on the public tit. There has to be even more doubt when Martin Bradbury at the Daily blog says doesn’t trust the political elites in Wellington to do this right.https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2019/08/20/why-would-you-trust-the-neoliberal-wellington-bureaucratic-elites-to-cost-political-promises/

    • So right. So true.

      The public service in Wellington (the people who’d be doing the costings) is 75% chardonnay socialists. And as for the level of competence of those doing the costings – well the reason they’re in the public service is that they’d all get found out in the private sector.

      It’s just a way of covering up that political parties on the left have no ability to formulate, cost and stress-test policies when in opposition (we’re seeing right now with the CoL how they cannot implement anything because their ideas are completely divorced from anything other than ideology).

    • HC, you’re so right, who would trust Robertson and Shaw? It seems DPF would though. His 7.00am post is in full support of the idea. I responded with a post suggesting in the current climate it is not a good idea. I stopped short of suggesting DPF has rocks in his head for his stance after all we are all entitled to our opinions.

            • Why would I care what she looks like? It just seems DPF has considerably changed his view of the world and I suspect he has been heavily influenced by someone very close to him. I know hubby and I bounce ideas off each other and despite both knowing our own minds we are willing to temper our views if the other has a better argument. As the saying goes, ‘behind every successful man is a strong woman.’

        It must just be the old adage – you are who you hang with. And he hangs in Wellington with beltway wankers.

        The sad thing is – the nicer he is to the left, the more they hate him.

    • I’m glad you raised this Happy.
      When I heard it I thought it was an open admission that neither the Greens or Labour had had the resources to cost any of their election promises. Fancy that – whoodathunk!
      Further it appears to be a back door way of clawing out some taxpayer funded electioneering.
      Labour might promote itself as the party with the most friends (ie Greens and Winston) but they aren’t stocked too well with donors and see themselves back in opposition in the not too distant future.
      They also aren’t the party with any talent, so have to hire in advisors on everything that can’t be driven by feelz.

      • Lest we forget the 3 parties that make up the COL each had their own set of election promises before the Government was picked by Mr 7%. Then came the secret 38 page “agreement” that muddied most policy directions with the now worn out response of their consultation within the COL. Added to this have been Captains Calls as well as some independent Ministerial decisions that seem to even miss this so called consultation process. Not to mention skirting the long established Parliamentary process. All to be costed retrospectively or perhaps not if it all seems too much of a challenge. Now they seek to tilt the playing field in their favour yet again while they have the opportunity. What could go wrong with that? Tui moment.

        • When Cindy held a press conference to announce Labour/Winston and the Greens had formed a coalition I had three very strong bad reactions:
          -Firstly a sinking feeling, but one I fully expected the announcement by Cindy of the coalition from hell. Good on ya Bill for sidestepping that bovine excretement!
          -Secondly, a very deep negative lurch in the pit of my stomach when Winston casually announced “capitialism is dead, but don’t blame me”. That didn’t bode well for the people of NZ. As I expected the COL proved to have a plan of attack to undermine our rock star economy. They appear to be on track for our economy to be bled dry through taxes and to crash into a recession making life so much harder for the vulnerable and ill prepared.
          – Thirdly, Winston announced a 38 page secret addendum that is not for the public to be privy to despite claiming this would be “the most transparent government ever” we, the voters are never to be informed of its content. Kept in the dark and fed bullshit is their modus operandi. F*kn liars.

          Let’s do this. Crap!!!

    • Would I trust a political party that introduced retrospective legislation to hide their illegal electioneering spend to setup an impartial organisation to cost all other parties?

      Would I trust a political party that has, multiple times over their history, pushed victims to avoid the police and tried to hide the alleged sexual abuse occurring in their offices?

      Would I trust a political party who has a leader that boldly and blatantly lies while telling us there is no need to lie in politics and that her government is open and transparent?

      Would I trust a political party that refuses to respond to OIA requests and who does not release ministerial letters they are obliged to release?

      Fuck no.

  3. Yes YSB’s Alexa rating is now 499.
    But as you say most of here are already the converted.
    We are under attack from leftists, socialists, anti christians, climate change fanatics, the social media giants that censor things.

      The left sat on it’s hands when the MSM and the vile left activists came after Key’s children, his jewishness, his previous career – but oh no! Boo at the SLG and it’s a crime against humanity!

      • Pascal, over on KB, Psycho Milt has argued himself into the corner that people don’t care about being gouged by the govt when they buy petrol. Because they “want” to pay their fair share of tax etc. People are more concerned about being gouged by the oil companies.

        What the dumb fool doesn’t realise is that even if the fuel component in a litre of fuel goes to $0.00, a liter of fuel will still cost up to a $1.20 at the pump largely because of tax. They don’t realise that the excise is a per litre value (as is regional fuel tax in Auckland) and GST is charged on the total value of the cost at the pump.

        So yes, Cindy and Goofy are ripping off the motoring public.

        • I actually don’t mind the level of tax as it is now.
          Possibly I’m an outlier.
          However what I do mind is that it is siphoned off for bollocks projects like cycleways (who do not contribute- and I have 3 different pushbikes) and public transport infrastructure.
          I would rather a targeted tax that reflects the miles one drives ie. tax per litre purchased/consumed than toll roads and straight ‘congestion’ charges and that the money is used to build more and safer roads.

          What I do object to is for the second time in the last half century the fuel taxes are being stolen for other matters. The last time was the 1975 National Govt that stopped building and this lasted 30 years.
          It was restarted circa 2005 and there has been some catch up but we are well behind the eight ball.

          Another thing is that NZTA are massively incompetent (Dodgy steel; Kapiti expressway and so on) that road building needs a better manager than that crap outfit.

          The whole idea of taking billions from motorists in order to build a tram from Auckland central out to the Airport to subsidise German and French backpackers who spend SFA in NZ is abhorrent. Because that is who will use it. It is useless to most (90%+) of Auckland citizens and completely useless to the rest of the country.Even a rail spur on the 3ft 6 gauge makes way more sense.

        Oaktree has USD 122 Billion under management.

        TV3 are useless with money. Even with NZ on Air (Mr. and Mrs. taxpayer) $20 mill a year free money they cant make ends meet.
        With the RWC coming up it is timely to remember that they outbid and got rights to air the 2007 RWC and then someone woke up after the fact and realised that lots of the games were Sunday morning when they could not show adverts.
        Duh, Homer! That is the dumb diddly dumbness that pervades that joint.

      I am on wireless rural broadband, they have emailed me that I am unable to receive the RWC?????? Right now I am getting 49mbps which to be fair is low when normally it averages 75-80.
      I heard that Spark is only needed for the pool games anyway, the semis / Final are on Prime and live?
      Can anyone confirm that?
      Sparks core service has declined rapidly since their obsession with trying to outdo Sky Sport, the fibre cable has been installed to my gate for 6 months now and no sign even being able to book connection in the foreseeable future despite their promise to have the area connected in 2019, just over 3 months to get their act together, tho it is Chorus that needs the rocket.
      Had to go to Wireless cos Spark/Chorus could not supply more than 4 days connection without 4 days down on adsl.
      And of course, Wireless is 50% dearer and capped and unused data does not roll over, this what we get when it is a virtual monopoly, the rest of the suppliers are worse.

  7. After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found
    traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that
    their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

    Not to be outdone by the British, in the weeks that followed, an American
    archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story
    published in the New York Times: “American archaeologists, finding traces of
    250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an
    advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the
    British”.

    One week later, Australia’s Northern Territory Times, reported the
    following:

    “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Tennant Creek, Northern
    Territory, aboriginal Bill Bunji, a self-taught archaeologist, reported
    that he found absolutely fuck-all.
    Bill has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already
    gone wireless…”

      • Low IQ thug in a suit Kelvin Davis says he wants to bring the Maori prison population down to 16%.
        Well I want a private racetrack from Kaitaia to Bulls. We can all dream.

        Anyway how about another inspirational target of making Maori only 16% of the NZ news.
        They are a noisy lot.
        This month we have Ihumatao, Criminals on the run in Christchurch; murders; gangs; whining about smoking; Orange tamariki; preferential entry to institutions; Hobsons choice; etc.

        Perhaps now that Kelvin is out of witless protection he might look at reducing the number of All Blacks to 16% of the side (Try that in the women’s team 🙂 ) and introduce a 12% Asian quota!
        Ah, once you start meddling….

        I find it fascinating Davis’ obsession with Maori matters when both his wife and mother are full whiteys. I wonder if he blames them for his problems- which appear to be many!

Cindy after 15 March stating that we must not voice the name “Tarrant”, and then flying off to Paris to virtue signal to the media about large social media companies who must prevent “white supremacist” uploads . At the same time back home Brenton Tarrant was busy writing letters from his high security cell to his supporters without any apparent check.

    • They may be and there are bigger tests to come. From the article you linked, “The time has come for change and a solution that is for Māori, by Māori, with Māori given the escalating disquiet in this country by our people,” Commissioning Agency chair Merepeka Raukawa-Tait said.

      “The State is signalling through that choice that it can do better and values its own answers over ours – well that is not the truth.”

      That discussion is about the attack on Orange Tamariki. It is also reiterating a view on supposed escalating disquiet by those described by the speaker as “our people” suggesting they are separate from the rest of the population.

      Merepeka Raukawa – Tait is not suggesting how Maori will fund this solution that will be worked by Maori for Maori. It would be wrong for her to assume the general taxpayer, which includes Maori, will also be keen to pay tax to fund a separate agency.

      • This is most of what I wrote:

        I find it hard to have any confidence in this Royal Commission of Inquiry when it seems you will be forbidden to address two very significant questions:
        1/. Who in the police force was responsible for issuing Brendan Tarrant his firearms licence without following correct vetting procedures which have worked so well for many years?
        2/. Who in government is responsible for the centralization of police firearms licencing thereby destroying the huge reservoir of local knowledge and experience built up over decades by local Arms Officers who, until recently, have been held in high regard by the law abiding shooting community?

        Since you will not be allowed to even comment on the abject failure of “multi-culturalism” in Europe which Cameron, Macron and Merkel all described as “a failure” before Merkel went insane in 2015 and opened the floodgates to violent third world followers of a totalitarian regime utterly incompatible with western civilization which New Zealand seems, under this despicable Prime Minister, to be keen to follow I will not waste my time on further comment.

      They are the main groups that cause violence and affect our safety.
      If there were no muslims in NZ Tarrant would not have done what he did.
      And we would save a huge amount in police and special service security.

            Funnily enough it isn’t ‘White Supremacists’ I am worried about…

  10. Comment of the day from the UK:

    Bollinger Bolshevik.
    Last throw of the dice; the climate is cooling. Billions have been wasted on total bollocks for the last 40 years, indulging cranks and crackpots with their end of world scenarios; Brexit has put a bit of spine into people – we are not tolerating this shite any more.

    If only it were true for New Zealand too!

  11. I was reading some hilarious comments on FB re Booing of Jacinda at the Rugby (*I follow some Left Wing sites out of pure fascination)-

    “Police should have ejected those rednecks from the Stadium”
    “How dare they?”
    “They were probably National Party plants..”

  12. Alan Jones threatening legal action over airing of Jacinda Ardern ‘backhand’ comment – report
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/08/alan-jones-threatening-legal-action-over-airing-of-jacinda-ardern-backhand-comment-report.html

    “Alan Jones is reportedly considering legal action after a show on Australia’s ABC aired a comment he made about Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern six days after he made it.

    Media Watch aired audio of the 2GB host suggesting Ardern get “a few backhanders” from Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday night, nearly a week after the comments were made.”

    Alan Jones has been targeted by social media trolls suggesting he “is old and should hurry up and die”, “have a stroke and die”, etc after he said Jacinda Ardern should put a sock in it.

    Building supplier monolopies.
    Cost of Branz accreditation for new products

  14. Winston Peter’s vsNational: Paula Bennett not giving up her scalp. National MP’s embroiled in the legal case with Winston’s Pension leak are staying tight lipped over a reported offer to settle for the scalp of Paula Bennett.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12260505
    Bennett speaking on a different mater last week said she had no intention of going anywhere and planned to be Deputy Prime Minister after the 2020 General Election.

Paula is a popular and experienced politician with real warmth that attracts voters attention, she is also Maori and much younger than the ancient Peters, hence him threatening to take the scalp of Paula Bennett before the election. It’s all bravado.

      ” oh the irony that the details of a private meeting got leaked” to none other than Barry Soper & I read on KB that the child bride went full nuclear against Simon and Paula earlier.

      ….it seems next year’s election is starting early, and both Robertson and Shaw accused Bridges of playing dirty American attack politics.

  15. I do worry about legal proceedings in the world. I would not want to be working with children anywhere in Australia. One kid gets miffed and says ” he touched me” and you go to jail. No need for witnesses, DNA, or anything else objective to be found guilty. Just the accusation. Whether Pell did it or not is not the issue. It’s the process that resulted in the guilty verdict, and the fact that important evidence was deemed inadmissible as it “would confuse the jurors”. Be afraid, men, be very afraid. #metoo

        • I’m not sure you’ve included the right link there Maggy, but Mark Mitchell made excellent points about Tarrant:
          The House supported SLG in refusing to give Tarrant recognition by mentioning his name.
          SLG then flew to Paris to get Tarrant and his ilk de plat formed by social media.
          The one thing SLG and her government (Corrections) could control at home wasn’t controlled at all.

          Fools.

          I have one other question about the link you posted:
          Why on earth is Mallard sitting in the Speakers Chair in the House of Parliament during General Debate bottle-feeding a baby?
          Whose kid is it?
          Do these woke morons in Wellington not get enough parliamentary salary to employ a child sitter while they’re at work – or are they too tight to pay the wages?
          New Zealanders deserve to be represented by people with their minds on the job.

    • Thanks waikatogirl
      An interesting letter, though a bit long, is because there are many different points to bring up.
      Pleased to hear Tommy is being looked after a lot better, physically, but it is still a lot of time to be in solitary.

      The first person I saw upon arrival to HMP Belmarsh was Ross Kemp, who is doing a documentary on Belmarsh prison. ….

      …. Last week though I got a pleasant surprise when I was taken at 7:30 AM to the gym. I was given 45 minutes but accompanied by Ross Kemp’s camera crew.

      I think the idea was to show the country that they made an effort after the trust in the prison service had been seriously damaged by the sight of me walking out of HMP Onley.

      The Ross Kemp’s documentary will give the authorities a bit of grief, as others will reflect on the sentence again. 🙂
      Also it looks like an appeal will be launched.

    Why would you employ a female if she is going to take 1-4 days leave each month/

    Somehow our old mothers and grandmothers managed to work long days in clothing sweatshops; or hot kitchens; or cold hospital wards; or the freezing outdoors, gutting herrings without needing days off because they were leaking menstrual fluids.

        Since we all seem to be intimately acquainted…

        My late 40s were a bloody time..
        On one occasion, just as I was about to start a lesson to a class of 30 boys, my period arrived with a gush…I raced next door to my male colleague and asked if he could keep an eye on my class for 5 minutes (I noticed his was starting to riot); he seemed a bit reluctant.. so I went back to my boys and told them to be good while I went to the loo, otherwise they would be cleaning up a pool of blood.

          I worked with a woman who did some work in prisons. She realised after crawling around on the floor working with a bunch of male prisoners on a project that her light blue skirt was covered in blood. The prisoners made no comment as period mishaps seem to be tapu no matter the circumstances or race.

    • Very similar ethos to the Kalergi Plan.

      In his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism), written in 1925, he describes the future of Jews in Europe and of European racial composition with the following words..

      “The man of the future will be of mixed race.
      Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.
      Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process.
      No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation”

      • Coincidence?

        Epstein called himself a “science philanthropist”, and donated handsomely to prestigious organizations such as Harvard, MIT, and the Santa Fe Institute. At one point, he was allegedly giving as much as $20m a year to fund scientists. Some institutions and researchers continued to take Epstein’s money even after his 2008 conviction, like MIT, according to BuzzFeed News.

        A partial list of the biggest scientific names in Epstein’s orbit, according to the New York Times includes “the theoretical physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking; the paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; Oliver Sacks, the neurologist and best-selling author; George M Church, a molecular engineer who has worked to identify genes that could be altered to create superior humans; and the MIT theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate”.

  20. Māori King tells people to stop blaming Government over child uplifts
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/08/m-ori-king-tells-people-to-stop-blaming-government-over-child-uplifts.html

    “But speaking at the annual Kiingitanga Koroneihana celebrations on Wednesday, King Tūheitia said it’s sometimes necessary for children to be taken for their own protection.

    “I have a fundamental belief in the vital place of the whānau in raising and nurturing their tamariki,” he told the crowd.

    “I also believe in the absolute right of the child to be protected and where necessary, taken out of harm’s way.

    “My challenge is to the whānau, hapū, iwi to take care of our tamariki and where the need arises to place them in a safe home.

    “We must avoid blaming the Government. Instead, we need to work on a solution. We have a chance to design the solution on our own.”
