    • Perhaps not as a portion of the rent but let out as rent + Insurance if its itemised there won ‘t be any doubt what it is going for and would cover the insurance so the landlord would be covered for loss if the renter causes this. All renters should have insurance as should car owners.

    • The tenant should have their own insurance for accidental damage. Why is the tenants carelessness the landlords responsibility?

  1. Is this the start of the nanny state policy being negotiated between Health Officals and the Goverment.

    The best way around this is bring in Health insurance and then people will think differently about alcohol and drugs, this is the largest reason our mental health problem are so high and penalizing others for the stupidity of those that don’t worry is insane.

    • Don’t leave your personal information for all to see. I deleted your post yesterday. We cannot be too careful these days.
      I would go on the first day. The charges will be dismissed due to lack of evidence.

              They will be blocked from progressing in Central Govt; Local govt; NGOS etc if they squeal on the Labour party. That is 40% plus of employment in NZ.

              If they are heading off to University then most Uni letcherers are Labour or Green activists or sympathisers.
              One of their foot soldiers (or Lieutenant; Jan the Ban) blocked Don Brash from speaking at Massey Agricultural college last year.

              There are plenty of ways these low life creeps (Liebour) will block the paths of any complainants.
              But they are all for improved Mental Health and Feelz.

  3. Poor Jacinda (not) and Liebore have been caught flat footed by National’s policy announcements yesterday. Listening to her waffle through her interview with Ferguson on Morning Report was good comedy. Her made up for the moment excuse that Labour will keep the age at 65 because we do more manual work in this country was novel and just highlighted her stupidity with social and fiscal policy.

The higher the return, the bigger the risk..but you would have known that, so YOU get no sympathy from me. Why come down so hard on pensioners? They HAVE paid taxes all their working life, they deserve a state pension. Now, bludgers, unemployed who won’t work, women that spit out babies like there’s no tomorrow, ‘sickness’ beneficiaries..the list is long. They can all fuck off. Most deserve nothing except a good kick in the arse. Leave the oldies alone.

      • Yes their genes are a violent warrior gene and also probably as has been proven with africans a lower IQ as well.
        I do feel sorry for Maori as they tend to die earlier (but some of it is their own fault)
        They die before they get much super.

        3. An incompotent bint, who should not have a ministerial warrant of state;

        5. Illierate, ignorant example of what not to do at university;

  5. Judge finds Johnson and Johnson responsible for Oklahoma opioid crisis, must cough up NZ$895m
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/08/judge-finds-johnson-and-johnson-responsible-for-oklahoma-opioid-crisis-must-cough-up-nz-895m.html

    “During the trial, lawyers for Oklahoma argued that J&J carried out a years-long marketing campaign that minimized the painkillers’ addiction risks and promoted their benefits.”

    “Opioids were involved in almost 400,000 overdose deaths from 1999 to 2017, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since 2000, some 6,000 Oklahomans have died from opioid overdoses, according to the state’s lawyers.”

    • For the fiscal year 2017, Johnson & Johnson reported earnings of US$15.3 billion, with an annual revenue of US$81.6 billion, an increase of 6.7% over the previous fiscal cycle. Johnson & Johnson’s shares traded at over $126 per share, and its market capitalization was valued at over US$367.5 billion in September 2018

      The scandals they have been involved in are nothing short of spectacular

      1982 Chicago Tylenol murders
      2010 Children’s product recall Tylenol again”higher concentration of active ingredients”
      2010 hip-replacement recall, none lasted very long.
      2010 Tylenol recall
      2010 Shareholders lawsuit.Foreign bribery and illegal marketing of Risperdal. Consumer fraud.
      Vaginal mesh implants. The devices began to erode into surrounding tissue and organs,
      Baby powder causing cancer
      And the opioid epidemic crisis. 500 lawsuits filed.

      The Red Cross symbol has been a Johnson & Johnson registered trademark since 1887.
      Gets you thinking as to how many soldiers may have made it back to their families.

  6. For those wondering why President Trump is pushing hard on trade realignment etc. this article gives a good background and explanation.

    “The post-WWII Marshall Plan was set up to allow Europe and Asia to place tariffs on exported American industrial products. Those tariffs were used by the EU and Japan to rebuild their infrastructure after a devastating war. However, there was never a built in mechanism to end the tariffs…. until President Trump came along and said: “it’s over”! ”

If her rating is down, where is Liebore’s and the CoL’s support? and where are the soft swing voters going?

  10. If the surname fits.

    Mountbatten-Windsor is the personal surname used by some of the male-line descendants of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Under a declaration made in Privy Council in 1960, the name Mountbatten-Windsor applies to male-line descendants of the Queen without royal styles and titles.

    Once again, they insist Andrew only met Epstein in 1999 but confirmed he had known Ghislaine Maxwell –Epstein’s ex-girlfriend who has been accused by several victims of being his ‘procurer in chief’ – for ‘many years, since she was a student’.

    This supports intelligence that Miss Maxwell, daughter of the late newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, was instrumental in introducing the prince to the paedophile.

The assassination of Epstein tends to suggest that he & his mates were up to their wrinkly necks in something that the powerful would rather not have disclosed.

          What interests me is what goes on in their minds. Why would those who have attained power, wealth & influence seek sex with children more than the rest of humanity & risk everything by doing so?

                If you are going to treat kids as ” toys,fodder, disposable” then what you need is a total lack of empathy. The royals & the rich do this by withholding love & affection from a child. The kid booted off to boarding school at six years of age will learn quickly that showing emotion endangers survival.

                Without empathy as a handbrake & the right connections with financial backing success is almost guaranteed.

                  Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.

                  This is the key personality trait that drove Epstein.
                  Hedge Fund Manager? Bullshit.
                  He blackmailed the elite for the elite.
                  That’s why he served a pittance of a sentence for having relations with an under age girl.
                  That is why he had to be silenced.
