  1. Well im quite sure that pic wont get a reaction lol
    While it is sad seeing people living like this i am offering a bonus point if anyone can guess who & what is being blamed for their situation maybe Pania Newton should get her ass up there and try and do something positive for Maori instead of denying her people much needed housing and soaking up her 15 minutes of fame

    • It is easy to do protests, but for their own people? regular working bees? and being such societal loving supportive people? 🙁
      As even mentioned in that article, sort of a “cargo cult” of expectation of that Wellington with all the money resources will arrive.
      Just a small finger pointed,
      “there’s no one coming from Wellington, there’s no one coming over the hill, not even the iwi down the road are coming through to bring a bit of kai to have a cup of tea with them”. “There’s no one”.

      ——————-
      Another “cargo cult”, of tax demanding people
      Still they keep on immigrating, and leave perfectly good houses in their homeland.
      Think of the children 🙁

      …. She even said it was worse than when she lived in a “normal house” in Eritrea and Sudan . ….
      …. “Made from heavily modified shipping containers, the homes offer a stable, comfortable environment for vulnerable homeless families who have nowhere else to go,” said the spokesman,

      “While we would rather offer people the opportunity to live in genuinely affordable permanent homes, the housing crisis means we have no choice but to use temporary accommodation to house the sheer volume of homeless households that present to us.”

    • Two points from Garbageman’s link:

      1) WTF are successive governments doing bringing refugees into a country that has no hope of housing its own people? Eg. Masterton has about 100 people on the waiting list for social housing while the dogooders prepare for the welcoming of work shy bludgers from the 3rd world.

      2) I warm easily to He Korowai Trust chief executive Ricky Houghton where he says, “cut out the bureaucracy and exorbitant consent fees”. Nit pickers & pen pushers create nothing. Maori own the land, Maori will live in whatever is built. Let them get on with it.

Apart from the fact that they get filled up so don’t need all the junk food its important for their growth. Sorry to the woke and not to be offending to any of the snowflakes out there but women also need the iron and meat supplies it.

  3. IRB gone mad on diversiddy

    So how on Earth is this going to work? The IRB have just announced that there is not going to be any more Women’s Rugby World cup – they’ve announced it’s going to be a gender neutral Rugby World Cup???

    So we’re having the Rugby World Cup in September this year, then we’re having the Rugby World Cup again in 2021! Then another RWC in 2023! So all the broadcasters are going to start making rugby very confusing indeed. There’s still going to be the real RWC (which advertisers and fans will flock to and pay outrageous sums to watch amazing athletes in an exhibition of world rugby), and then there’s going to be a tenth rate RWC where the winner would be able to be comfortably beaten by the average boy’s first 15?

    Of course, now that it’s a gender neutral RWC – it’ll be tough to work out that one is a massive financial black hole that has to be heavily subsidised by the other one – which will continue to make a mountain of cash for the ‘fucked-in-the-head’ IRB.

    Also, when are the transgenders going to get their shit together and get into women’s rugby – if ever there was a sport that was perfect for domination by a minnow team augmented by a few rubby playing TGs – the gender neutral RWC was the one.

    Instead of 8 or 10 years to Armageddeon its going to be 4 or 5.

    • Anyone would think these Amazonian fires were something new. They are not. There has been a regular burning season every year for the last fifty years or so if not longer. The land is burned to clear it for the production of palm oil, gasohol and to graze the vast herds of McDonalds raw material. Yes it is damaging and very unwise from an ecological point of view but nothing has been done about it before so why now?

    • This was all covered in the book ‘Fast Food Nation’ by Eric Schlosser which released in 2002.
      Perhaps if these people read more…. oh, yeah, right. Forgot.

      A good read but the movie in 2006 that was derived from it was awful.

      As Alice says > its not new- but we have selective reporting of what to get nervy about today.

      I guess if Jacinderella sees it on the TV ‘news’ she will find out about it …if they get reception in the Islands!
      Not that she needs to be any more nervy and jumpy.
      I would not trust her with a knife and fork. All that jiggling and fidgeting!
      Perhaps her staffers job is to cut up her (one day a week) meat and veges to be on the safe side.

  5. I think all blogs are echo chambers to some extent, after all we normally tend to gather with like in any given situation. Ones goes to a social occasion and you gravitate towards those who you like, respect and wish to be with, not the loudmouth who annoys you with every word/breathe they take. After you if you were given tickets to a concert of your choice you would know what type of artist you would choose to go to.

    The W/O blog suffered from this in that from reading one gained the impression it was only a matter of time before the ACT Party and the New Conservatives with the new Messiah Elliot Ikilei were each going to explode into the +5% poll range and combine to toss that nasty COL group out, despite W. Peters, the former crowd favourite being part of that. Unfortunately each poll would confirm that no, the 1% limit had not been threatened and life was to go on sitting, reading and commenting with the under 50 percenters.
    That is the definition of an echo chamber.

            So many countries pushing populism indicates the world is changing rapidly and unfortunately, NZ will be last to catch the boat as usual.

            There must be someone out there in gumboots ready to take the mantle.

            A no shit, promises made promises kept, authentic individual who can steer this country toward the prosperity it so desperately needs.

            The whiners can keep whining, the whingers whinging, and the doubters doubting.

            During times of war the very best leaders were renown for their decisiveness, right or wrong.
            No one would follow a snowflake into battle. They would turn and high tail it.

            Yet here we are now, in a snowstorm, standing still, being rammed like a fence post into
            a woke dystopian earth.

      • Not your average person concerned with mum in the rest home, Micky struggling at school, the blocked drain and so on. But as the blog climbs up the ranking the Wellington political office staff will be reading it to understand trigger points.

        It is far cheaper and easier to read these comments than do a political survey and here people are candid which cannot be relied upon in a survey – as shown by near universal failure of political polls on close events in the last 4 years.

        One would like to think however that there is some recognition that 74 % of people on the mediaworks poll yesterday do not trust the cops.
        That is significant unless in fact the current political controllers want them to be The Sturmabteilung in which case it is working.

      Then Baity would address each comment with a congratulatory cyber blow job. 🙂

      “The commission has not dismissed the case, although Crynowski, who filed a similar case against a mother of a five-year-old boy seeking “an older lady with experience,” lost a case that went to the Supreme Court of Canada, in which he was seeking more than $1,000 in “damages to dignity.”

      “It is unclear why the Human Rights Commission has now accepted Mr. Cyrynowski’s complaint against Todd, giving the precedent set by the test case,” John Carpay, Justice Centre president and lawyer, said in a statement.”

      That’s an easy one to answer. The Canadian Human Rights Commission is similar to ours and has an incredibly low bar to scale when it comes to this type of crap.

  7. Nothing wrong with telling Jacinda to put a sock in it

    I have regaled anyone who’d listen since the mid-80s with the dangers of political correctness. What was I told? “Never happen here.”

    Now it has spawned numerous offspring that have transitioned society into a state of absurdity. PC provides umbrella protection for any sort of nuttiness and it’s being exploited by plenty who should know better. Sadly, rather than stand on principle, many adopt the old fail, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”

    Is woke culture totalitarian?” The woke brigade label anything they disagree with as dangerous, fascist or evil.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=122608

    For those that are too miserable to pay, here is the complete story. Well worth the read.

    Earlier this century the incumbent Prime Minister of New Zealand opined that the country existed in an “incredibly benign strategic environment”. That might have been true once but how things change and keep changing. It would be easy but unnecessary to include a long list of changes, so let’s not.

    I will though refer back to what I believe was the first development that has plagued the country, and the rest of the world, faster than anyone expected, including me. It would be tedious if not so important. I have regaled anyone who’d listen since the mid-80s with the dangers of political correctness. What was I told? “Never happen here.”

    Now it has spawned numerous offspring that have transitioned society into a state of absurdity. PC provides umbrella protection for any sort of nuttiness and it’s being exploited by plenty who should know better. Sadly, rather than stand on principle, many adopt the old fail, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”

    This week I came across a commentary on a new book. Well, it’s not new but that was the claim: “In his edgy and thought-provoking new book.” Except, I’ve had a copy of it since 2016. It ain’t new but maybe it’s his attempt to sound “edgy”. Not that the published date is the point. Eric Kaufmann is writing about The Demon in Democracy, by Polish professor Ryszard Legutko, a book I’ve previously mentioned. It’s the content that matters. “Political correctness is the tyrannical demon in democracy. A majority of people in the US, Canada and the UK say pc is a problem.” And no wonder. “Today, mainstream politicians, parties, think tanks and bureaucrats tie themselves in knots to avoid sound bites that could be portrayed as racist, sexist or homophobic.” According to Legutko, the terms “reactionary” and “progressive” were staples of communist doctrine.

    Did I mention the headline for Kaufmann’s piece? No, because it uses that detestable word “woke”. Here it is anyway. “Is woke culture totalitarian?” The woke brigade label anything they disagree with as dangerous, fascist or evil.

    That’s Alan Jones, of course, all three and more. I’m not interested in entering the fray over what he said about Jacinda. Okay, so I will. There was nothing wrong, nothing, with the sentiment involving the sock. “Put a sock in it” has a long history in Australia. Parents would say it to kids. Time to stop talking was its basic meaning. Colloquial to the ultimate. Polite, even elegant by today’s standards. He did, however, express the sentiment in a less delicate way, thereby exposing himself to the left-wing aggressiveness of those who would exploit any opportunity to execute his career.
    Focus: Diary of PM Jacinda Ardern’s Pacific Islands Forum trip. Video / Jason Walls

    Retired but never silent Australian Labor cabinet minister Graham Richardson, who’s had his own share of media issues, wrote in his Monday column, “It seems to me that far too many people in this day and age spend too much time looking for offence.” He continued, “Jones also suffers from tall-poppy syndrome, with too many people death-riding him and salivating each time he errs. My advice to them is get a life.” The problem is that everything now is politicised and we are poorer for it. There is Soros money contributing to activism in Australia.

    Is New Zealand still too benign for George?

    It was the Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu that produced the Alan Jones commentary, but there is a far greater issue involved. That of the supposed threat to the Pacific Island countries that make up the bulk of the forum. Each of them has their own issues, some of them shared; but becoming climate refugees is not one of them.

    Fiona Kotvojs says the main cause of erosion on Pacific islands such as Tokelau is not sea level rise but poor design and construction of sea structures. Photo / Nasa

    A recent study published in the journal Geology concluded that sea-level rise will likely not drown low-lying Pacific atolls. The study lead authors were from, wait for it, The University of Auckland and others from Canada and the UK. That’s not the sort of news forum leaders want publicised. It makes it harder to play us off against China. Added to that is the latest input from Dr Fiona Kotvojs. Published in the Australian Financial Review, Kotvojs has an honours degree in coastal geomorphology. She is a development specialist with almost 30 years experience working across the Pacific including Kiribati, Tuvalu and Tokelau, having spent many years working on coral atolls. She comments, “The main cause of erosion on these islands is not sea level rise. Instead, it is the construction of poorly designed boat ramps and boat channels, sea walls and reclamation works. Until the real cause of the problem is identified, it will never be solved.” She backs her comments with fulsome detail.

    “The population of Tuvalu will be destroyed by diabetes long before the island is drowned by rising sea level … the creation of unjustified fear is inexcusable.”

    Her conclusion, “We have to continue to support our Pacific Island neighbours where they have the greatest need — rather than investing where there is the greatest media focus.”

    I concur! Leighton Smith.

    ON TOP OF THAT THERE ARE MAJOR RUGBY INJURIES EVERY DAY AND ACC PAYS OUT $500 MILLION/YEAR! AND NOBODY GIVES A FUCK!

  16. For those following the Brexit situation, like I have over the last couple of years, there are interesting new developments. Former Chancellor, Phillip Hammond and his remainer mates are planning to hold their own talks with the EU to try to facilitate further extensions. In other times I suspect this would be classed as treason and in the US the Logan Act would apply ( whether that Act is of any use given what John Kerry got up to with talks in Iran, is another matter).

    But here is an interesting post from another blog on the developments:

    Hammond: “Our next step is likely to be something that seeks to direct the British government to seek an extension”
    Well, good luck with that. For starters, according to the terms of Article 50 of the EU Constitution, the only person with the power to request an extension from the EU is the Prime Minister; if he refuses to do so, Parliament cannot force him. Secondly, any such attempt would give him the perfect cause and opportunity to prorogue Parliament (impose a temporary closure) until the clock runs out on 31st October.
    The legislative and treaty documents are perfectly clear. Unless the PM has requested an extension, and unless it has been unanimously agreed to by all EU member states before 11pm GMT on 31st October, 2019, then the default options laid down in both Article 50 of the EU Constitution and the EU Withdrawal Act (2018) rule that our membership of the EU ends, immediately, automatically and in every respect – regardless of whether or not any agreement as to future relationships has been agreed.
    Hammond and his supporters know that perfectly well, as they were all in Parliament when the EU Constitution – which includes Article 50 – was ratified by a clear majority in 2009. They were also in Parliament – and many of them in government – when the EU Withdrawal Act was voted through with a clear majority in 2018.
    As for lies put about by the Remainders that for Johnson to prorogue Parliament would be “unconstitutional”, and that it would “cause a constitutional crisis”; if they had bothered to study the relevant sections of our Constitution (and yes, contrary to widespread rumour, we DO have one, and it is IS all written down, though not in a single document), they would be aware of the following facts.
    “Institutional writers such as A. V. Dicey, author of the seminal ‘Introduction to the Study of the Law of the Constitution’, have been clear that Parliamentarians “can in accordance with the Constitution be deprived of power [when] there is fair reason to suppose that the opinion of the House is not the opinion of the electors.”
    Edmund Burke, considered the founding father of British conservative thought and often invoked by EU loyalists suggesting that MPs revoking Brexit would be in line with “Burkean representative democracy”, was similarly clear that:
    “The virtue, spirit, and essence of a House of Commons consists in its being the express image of the feelings of the nation. It was not instituted to be a control UPON the people, as of late it has been taught. It was designed as a control FOR the people.”
    As proof of the fact that the opinion of the Remainder-dominated House of Commons is NOT the opinion of the electorate, Johnson can quote the following, none of which relies on possibly dubious opinion polls:
    1. In 2016, the electorate were given two simple and clear-cut choices in the referendum; “Remain in the EU”, or “Leave the EU” – and the second of them had NO proviso, such as “but ONLY if we can get a deal with the EU beforehand”.
    2. By a clear majority, 52% of the votes cast were for Leave’ – and that 17.4 million votes was the largest political mandate ever given to any British government in history.
    3. Of the 650 constituencies in the United Kingdom, two-thirds of them voted ‘Leave’.
    4. In the 2017 general election, 82% of all votes cast went to the three parties which campaigned on a promise to take us out of the EU.
    5. In the Euro elections of 2019, the Brexit Party, which had only been launched six weeks earlier, topped the poll on its unequivocal support for total freedom from the EU and a return to sovereign nationhood – pushing the governing party led by Theresa May into fifth place.
    It’s true that we are currently in a Constitutional crisis – but that crisis has been deliberately and directly caused by the subversive actions of the Remainder MPs in Parliament, and their equally treacherous allies in the senior ranks of the civil service. “

  17. No surprise with this headline:

    Children’s Commissioner Andrew Becroft supports separate childcare system for Māori
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/shows/2019/08/children-s-commissioner-andrew-becroft-supports-separate-childcare-system-for-m-ori.html

    “There’s a common cry for ownership by Māori and delivery of services by Māori for Māori. I think the time has come, as a nation, for us to seriously consider that.”

    When pressed on what that system would look like, Becroft said he could picture working alongside a Māori Children’s Commissioner.

    “Oh, on that point, it may well be that there is a Commissioner for New Zealand Children, Commissioner for Māori Children; maybe the same for children in care.

      • Depends on how you do it, I suppose. Mama Bear and myself, we normally pick a random direction every day and just walk. We try to avoid public transport and taxis and those things and spend a week or two walking around wherever we’ve gone, meeting people and seeing places. It changes how you see the world when you see how other people live.

        Like we have no idea what wealthy means here. Nor do we have the faintest clue what real poverty is. Seeing how people gather in Hanoi around the lake in the evenings and the games they play even in a city that big, it’s beautiful man.

        It’s an amazing world we live in with so much to explore.

        Paul Goldsmith had not heard of the announcement about the train from Hamilton to Auckland when he arrived so he could not announce National’s policy. I hope they have a decision by the next sitting. It does not make financial sense.

          1. National has almost invariable retained all legislation imposed by Labour, no matter how bad it is. Think WFF, tax creep, etc.

          2. National tinkers with basic worker rights, like tea-breaks, while not only ignoring, but also supporting the growing loss of freedom we experience. They supported Ardern in getting us into a state where the police visit people at home. They support increasing dependency on the state. There are much bigger priorities they ignore.

          The basic point? National is not really different to Labour; they’re just a different colour of stupid, no matter how much we hear about their delegates and events.

    It recently had the biggest drug seizure ever, there.
    Its the hub of all smuggling in the US. People, drugs, arms etc.
